Karliah is an orphan, she's been one since her parents died from an accident 15 years ago. The orphanage she lived in was falling apart and in need of repairs, and the caretaker was a very abusive man towards the children. Karliah hated the caretaker and wanted to do what she could to help the other orphans.
One day, when she was 13, Karliah was walking around her town when she saw a poster for a fighting tournament. When she saw the prize money, she ran back to the orphanage with a plan, to train and work hard so that she could enter a tournament and win the prize money, that way she could fix up the orphanage. She trained for many days, scrounging up whatever she could to make training equipment out of. She did this for 3 years, and she seemed like she was ready to put herself to the test.
However, that changed one day, when the caretaker was in a very foul mood. He was spouting obscene words and his breath smelled like alcohol. He had a knife out and was threatening the kids, yelling and cursing, saying that they would never be adopted. It was getting to a point where the caretaker was mumbling about "making an example" and started pointing at one of the kids with the knife. Something in Karliah's head snapped, and she jumped at the man, slamming her fist into his jaw. What followed was what could be called a bloody beating.
Karliah ran out the orphanage doors, with blood on her hands, and kept on running. Since then, she couldn't look at herself in the mirror, she saw herself as a murderer on the run. She wants to atone for what she did in taking a life, and so she became a Nomad, keeping in mind of her one goal, to help the people she left behind.
FIGHTING STYLE & ABILITIES

She tries to keep close to opponent and will not relent with her attack until her opponent is either knocked out or if they surrender.SPECIAL MOVES & TECHNIQUES

Karliah is mostly a, close quarters fighter. Anyone who can outrange her or outrun her can easily keep away and wear her stamina out. Karliah is also prone to outbursts of rage when under extreme stress, causing her to lose sense of the fight. This makes her more predictable, and easier to outwit.
Karliah has taken to meditation, as a means of keeping calm. She also has a big sweet tooth, and always has a bag of sweets in her pocket.
