"We protect the wood with our lives!"
Swethyna Brookstone leads the Wood Wailers, having assumed command at a young age after wounds forced her brother from the position. In the fifteen years since, she has worked to defend the Black Shroud.
Swethyna is ever training, seeking to surpass her own best efforts. Men under her command without the same tenacious disposition, however, may find her methods tiring or even frustrating. Nevertheless, there can be no doubt that Swethyna is a leader of superior talent, and has gained much respect as a result. Born in the same year, O-App-Pesi and Swethyna are close friends, and have entered battle together on more than one occasion. By all reports, the Midlander remains unwed at thirty-seven summers, claiming to enjoy the spiritual respite granted by a glass of wine taken in solitude.
