The Death of Magic
Angela Van Verdeik
Urga Goro was born as just another orc, but with a key difference from her peers. Urga was extremely intelligent. As she grew up she found the chores she was expected to do boring and in her boredom she began to start playing games, mind games. She realized that everyone she knew was extremely simple minded and she could easily trick them into doing her bidding. When Urga came of age she already had many of her peers worshiping her as the true Chieftess and the Chieftain, Obo Oja had taken notice. Being a simple minded orc Obo attacked Urga in front of everyone in an attempt to prove he was the Chieftain and he intended to keep it that way. Urga knew when this attack was going to take place however, and she planned accordingly. She outwitted, outmaneuvered, and out classes Obo as a fighter. Urga had Obo on the ground and she took his Halberd that had been passed down, or stolen, from Chieftain to Chieftain and with a single slammed it down cutting off Obo's head. She lifted his head by the braid and slammed it on top of her Halberd presenting it to the rest of her clan. Everyone bowed before her claiming her the new Chieftess. In her speech Urga renamed herself Angela von Verdeik, after a human she had once encountered that had treated her with dignity. She lived as Chieftess for a few years enjoying the constant pampering and preventing uprisings from the bull headed orc's in her clan by either slaughtering them or simply confusing them with big words or otherwise making them think that it was good for them to leave her as Chieftess.
Angela would frequently travel to human, elf, and dwarven cities nearby and she would mingle with the nobility of those cities. She became extremely interested in the societies of these cities and began making connections with various people to get the rumors and gossip for all the cities, juggling it around in her head, and occasionally selling it to the highest bidder to help support her luxurious lifestyle. Angela was spoiled from her life as Chieftess and the other races dare not treat her poorly when she visited.
