Persona History:

Claryce was born in south France near Marcelles in around 1250. When she was about 5 or 6, she was in a caravan with her parents, but it was attacked by bandits. She was overlooked because she crawled under a wagon. She was later discovered (and adopted) by a nearby tavern owner. She served as a tavern wench for several years. Many years later her patron took her with him on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. He died there, and left her without support. A sultan decided that she would be a fine prospect for one of his sons, and took her into the harem. She learned to dance, earned coins, and slipped out of the palace. She used the coins to buy her passage back home.

I use a cane, and can stand or sit for limited amount of time before I either need to move to standing/sitting. If I don't, my pain increases. I have numerous airborne allergies, and am very sensitive to the heat.
