Background: (1-2 paragraphs)
Viola was born in the most wealthy district of Arcadia. Her parents were both prominent members of the Arcadian senate and wealthy landowners. She grew up with the best care possible and had servants to fulfill her every whim. Her childhood was very easy; she spent her days learning from her private governess everything from math, to art, and how to play an instrument, though she was never good. As the days turned into years, she grew weary of her boring-but-elegant life. She grew depressed and refused to talk to any servants, her parents, or even her governess, which was her only true friend. She would sneak out almost nightly to local taverns to drink and do her best to make any friends she could. Though, all that usually got her was a terrible hangover and scolding from her parents for making their family name look bad. As she grew more and more dependent on alcohol, her parents became more worried about not only her, but how they looked in the public eye. The day after she turned 18 she was sent to Liontrout Canyon by her parents to join the sisterhood. She was sent to make her repent for her drinking and disobeying of her parents. She was sent to work in the kitchens when she arrived. She quickly picked up the culinary art, and soon was one of their best chefs. She spent four years of her life, which is all that is required to become a sister, in the sisterhood, learning how to be a sister and becoming an excellent cook.
After her four years she decided she did not want to return to her parent's home, but instead wanted to spread the word of her god. The original colony had just been started, and after talking to the head sister she decided she would spread her religion to the colony. Using money the sisterhood gave her, she hired a horse and wagon to take her back to her hometown of Arcadia to get on one of the first boats to the original colony. When she arrived at the colony she found the colonists were not as friendly to her religion as she thought they would be. The colonists mocked her religion and said she was a waste of resources. she viewed it as a test of her will from her god, and refused to give up. She tried all the ways the sisterhood taught her to convert the colonists. No one would listen, except for a farmer about the same age as she, though he only listened to her because he thought she was extremely gorgeous. After months of trying to convert the colony to no avail, though, she did give up. The failure devastated her so terribly that she rebuked the entire religion and picked up drinking again. Though her religious attempts failed, she soon became a great help to the colony. She cooked almost everyone's meals daily, and quickly won the colonist's friendship. She was elected as their mayor for one year, which is when the colony hit it's peak. When her year was almost over and she was getting ready to be reelected, a messenger from Arcadia brought grave news. Both of her parents had recently died due to a mysterious disease. She decided to return home immediately to get her inheritance. Her drinking became even worse, and she would go days without eating. After two years of mourning and heavy drinking, she managed to start to pull herself together, though she still cannot completely overcome her alcoholism. Soon, she began to plan her trip back to the colony, missing the only people she could call friends. She never returned to the original colony though, due to the colony itself falling apart and most of the colonists dying from starvation. She has spent the last years almost completely alone, except for the servants she hired only because she could not keep her parent's house clean on it's own. As news spread through the capital that another group of colonists were being sent to Avaris to settle the delta, she immediately signed up, and pledged most of her fortune to the settling of the island. She has been elected to be the first colonial leader by the senate, due to her experience with the first colony, and plans on setting sail soon.
