Xina is the daughter of the half-elf Xaviera Xee and her first wife, the human Lina Arniman. This pretty young girl/woman stands about 5'1" and has a small-breasted slim-hipped figure that is best described as 'willowy'. Her limbs are long, her movements graceful and quick, her demeanour quiet and shy. Her slightly pointed ears reveal her elven heritage, but her features are a bit too delicate, her cheekbones a bit too high, and her golden-brown eyes a bit too large. Her hair is a medium brown, lightening to a honey colour in the summer, and falls to below her shoulders.


Conceived with the assistance of fey magic, Xina was born in Cordor to Xaviera; her 'twin' sister, Selina, who more resembles a typical human, was born a month earlier in Neverwinter to Lina. For the first few years of their lives, the two girls lived with their mothers in a rented room at Gabilgathol's Ale House in North Cordor, later moving to Mayfield's Inn in Kohlingen. After an explosion and fire at the latter location, the family purchased a house in the Holy City where they have lived ever since.

The girls were raised mostly by Lina as Xaviera was still adventuring during those early days and, even when not doing so, was absent most nights due to her rather profligate lifestyle; after she gave up adventuring for the less dangerous (but hardly more respectable) career of a High Priestess of Sharess, she still managed to spend a great deal of her time away from the family home. The family worshipped both Xaviera's goddess, Sharess, and Lina's patron, Ilmater; Xina herself also professes some devotion to Hanali Celanil.

Although Xina and her sister had some schooling in classes at the Temple of the Triad taught by their mother Lina, the latter was occasionally occupied with other matters, leaving Xina - the more adventurous of the two siblings - to slip away unnoticed. To the extent that Xaviera did parent her children, she refused (probably wisely) to allow them to travel to Cordor unaccompanied, so Xina would sneak out to the market near the Temple of the Triad and skulk among the stalls, amazed at the variety of produce and the strange people who sold it. It was here, as a child and later during her teen years working at Bill Jordan's inn and tavern, that she acquired her interest in food and cooking.

Lina died when Xina was about twelve years of age. In part as a result of this early loss, she was (and continues to be) a very shy girl, without many close friends but a number of acquaintances of various sorts, from the street urchins of the market to the rich children of the city's nobles whom she'd encounter in and around the Temple. It was from these disparate sources that she acquired basic street skills and an interest in the short bow, the latter further stoked by her mother's acquaintance with the elven archer Delarwyn Salenor and, later, her own friendship with Erik Tarvencia, who encouraged her to learn more of magic and to combine the two pursuits. In her mid-teens, a year spent in the city of Raven's Bluff gave her further education in cooking and magic as well as life and love.

Xaviera and her daughters are closer now than they used to be, but Xina is unhappy with her life as it is and realizes that the time has come to make some choices...
