Dalanora "Nightdeath" O'Rallaghaigh was born to Cailean MacCoinnich and Moira MacCoinnich in a comfortable little holt on the Northeast coast. She was born with jet-black fur, emerald-green eyes and a strange tan birthmark on her head, a birthmark that made the babe look like she was wearing an executioner's hood. The name dalanora in ancient otter tongue meant "the bringer of hope."

Physical Appearance Edit
Dalanora is attractive, with a tall, muscular build. Scars from whips cover her back, but her most noticeable one is a long, deep scar that runs across the left side of her face from her forehead, across her eye and cheek down to her chin, the scar stops just before reaching her neck. She keeps her blind eye covered by a musselshell patch. She wears a red tunic and blue vest with a weapons belt slung over her shoulder.
Dalanora used to live in peace in a holt on the Far Northeast coast with her beloved husband Tallion and their four baby kits, sons Jir and Varon and daughters Driana and Acair. Her family was slaughtered in cold blood in front of her eyes when she was captured and enslaved. Seeing this twisted her mind from the kind beast she used to be.
Dalanora lost her eye in the battle while trying to protect her family, a fox named Sharaddan hit her in the face with his cutlass while she was standing in front of her babies. While the otter was down on the ground screaming and helpless in agony, her kits were murdered. After two seasons serving as an oarslave on Sharaddan's galleon, Dalanora finally snapped, went berserk with bloodwrath, killed every vermin aboard and made her escape.
"Nightdeath" is the nickname the other slaves gave her.
