Description Morwen is a powerfully-built young woman with pale skin, large dark eyes, and short slicked-back blond hair. Knowing her angular features and wide mouth do not lend themselves to classical beauty, Morwen has adopted an androgynous style.
Her parents, blessed by some eldritch creature of the depths, raised her with the beliefs that might makes right and those of the family's "school" are destined to be the mightiest above and below the waves. Always a bully and prone to conflict, Morwen has trouble staying with one occupation for very long, but has tried her hand as a merchant, wreck salvager, pirate, and mercenary.
Motivation/ Goals Morwen desires power over others and distraction from routine. Initially in Roston to hide from the neighboring capital's navy, she became curious when her nightly swims indicated humans had been killed and dumped into the sea along with some foul tasting "additions". After several nights of observation, Morwen realized she had a way to influence the situtation. Revealing herself first to one of the younger monks, she claimed to be a sign that the monk's experiments were headed in the correct direction. She prefers to associate less with the bookish abbot, Norbert, and more with the more martial monks. She knows lycanthropy is not the first path the cultists of the Scaled Eye would have taken, but the allure of being able to swim without modification is a powerful temptation.
Morwen has no loyalty to the monastery, seeking only to sway its members to her control and hasten the conflict with the village.
