Born Rapture Thallis in Westgate to a very wealthy Performer / Thespian. She does not know her Elven father, never having met him. As she was the product of a romance her mother had while on the road.
With her mother always away on tour. Rapture was raised pretty much by nannies. She was sent to the best schools available and is very well educated. As a child Rapture was pampered, and had the run of the large house. Located in one of the wealther sections of Westgate. Rapture enjoyed the attention of the nannies and servents, which is a lifestyle which is still reflected in her tastes and desires today.
She did, however find as she approached adolescence. That she began to resent her mother for what she deemed as abandonment. Out of spite she would sneak out into the city at night, and eventually became friends with a lot the street urchins that roamed the streets at night looking to pick up some coin.
At her young age she found it exciting to sneak around stealing something here and there, and conning others out of coin.
She soon came to realize she had a talent for that sort of thing. Rapture has a quickness that seems unnatural, and a nimbleness that is useful when she gets into a scrap. What came as a supprise was it seems some of her mothers acting abilities must have been inherited as well. Rapture capitalized upon those inherent skills, and she became very good at playing parts so to speak.
Her abilities, and talents, soon caught the attention of the Night Masks. Rapture was recruited into their ranks as a novice Rogue.
It wasn't for the gold. What she enjoyed was the thrill. Sneaking around under the noses of the guards. Knowing that one wrong move would get her caught. Playing acting a part. Knowing that she could fool someone into giving her gold and items. These were the things that attracted her to the Night Masks.
The Night Masks began to further develop her talents, and taught her new ones. As she began her journeyman time in the guild. Rapture at first was used as a look out, and runner.
As her new talents grew, and developed they used her as a lock pick, and to set and remove traps. The Night Masks began to expand her role in cons, and would use her quite frequently. Her most useful part was as the child of pair of adults posing as a family. It was during one of these cons that it went bad, and she was arrested. When the authorities found out who she was, and because of her age at the time. They called in her mother. He mother paid a fine, and Rapture was released in her custody.
Her mother was concerned over her daughters behavior, activities and how it would affect her career. Rapture was still resentful of her mother for leaving her most of the time.
So upon returning home the first of many arguments ensued. Her mother forbade her to remain a Night Mask, and made arrangements for Rapture to attend a girls boarding school. Rapture, decided she was not ready to go on her own. She was not ready to give up the big house with all the amenities. She just simply nodded, went along with it.
The school while giving her a good education was not someplace Rapture enjoyed. She no longer had the servants to wait on her, and clean up after her. It took awhile for her to get used to a Dormitory style of living. Out of boredom she formed her own version of the Night Masks with some of her fellow students. They would generally cause mischief, and occasionally steal food and supplies for their own usage.
Eventually one of the other girls got caught, and pegged Rapture as the leader of the group.
Rapture was expelled from the school. She returned home much to her mothers distress, and finished her schooling in Westgate. It was during this time that whenever her mother was home, all they seemed to do was argue. It soon reached a point where they just don't talk anymore.
Upon returning to Westgate. She once again began to work for the Night Masks. This time they did expand upon what she did previously, however it was still menial stuff that is usually relegated to the lower rankings.
As Rapture finished her schooling she felt that the Night Masks held no future for her. She could see that they thought of her as nothing more than a tool they could use. A few of her friends and acquaintances that she had come into the guild with. Were either in Dungeons somewhere or dead. The Night Masks being a very large guild, had a lot of members with more time and influence than she. Rapture did not see where the Night Masks would offer much of an opportunity to move up in the ranks. She began to have thoughts of leaving.
When her primary schooling was over her mother made arrangements for Rapture to attend college. Rapture finally looking to get out, set off to see what colleges were available, and what they offered. She came to the Dales to visit her cousin, and to find out more about the college in Highmoon where her cousin was a student.
Upon seeing the Dales, meeting and making a couple of friends, and hearing more of the opportunity the Moonsea region. Rapture decided to forgo College. Break away from the Night Masks, and move up to the Moonsea region.
To date Rapture has done well. The Night Masks have not come looking for her. She has a management position at a local establishment, and a prominent position within the city of Yulash's government. She will sometimes still use her skills for adventuring parties, opening and disarming trapped doors, and chests. Picking locks on them as well when needed. Her swordarm, though not as strong as others is still useful at times.
Rapture is currently banking her earnings in hope of opening her own import/export coffee/tea business. Her plans are to have a warehouse for the import/export, with area's for public and private tea rooms. The upper floors will be for her private residence. She has found the building she wants, and renovations are currently being done. It is taking longer than expected, but it gives her more to time get accrue the necessary gold.
