Ceto comes from an oceanic tribe of Undine fairies that live near a small, secluded group of islands barely big enough to support vegetation. The tribe relied mostly on sea creatures, as the closest continent to them was Nefarland and preferred as little contact with other races as possible. This tribe of Undine in particular wanted no part in the wars that were currently plaguing the continents, and is the reason for them locating themselves so far away from habitable land as well as out of the way of pirates. Ceto is the third daughter and fourth child of six of the tribe’s Chieftain and his wife.
From a young age Ceto proved to be lively and adventurous. As clever as she was, her unbridled curiosity would get her into trouble often. Even though she was good at getting herself out of situations without it causing too much damage to the tribe, most saw her as a liability and a burden. Ceto longed to see the outside world that most of her elders would warn her against, but Ceto could sense how unsettled much of the tribe was with her. At the age of 16, she set out on her own to explore the world that was so mysterious to her. With Nefarland being the closest, it was her first destination.
For Ceto, Nefarland was both frightening and exciting. Not that the constant threat of being attacked by larger beings wasn’t something she was accustomed to, since her tribe frequently engaged in hiding and stealth tactics to avoid and take down larger prey, but most of the creatures there were, generally, smarter than the average preying fish. Still, Ceto learned quickly, keeping more to streams than the ocean, as the ocean and shores were abundant with pirates. It was here that she took up thievery as a means of survival and learned important survival tactics for on land. She also found her attraction to treasures and items of value at Nefarland. Although she preferred to discover hidden vast riches than take it for herself, she took a devilish job of guiding pirates and unsavory folk to their deaths in the search of treasure and ransacking what spoils she could from their misfortune. It wasn't that she took much pleasure in the job, she chose carefully her victims to be sinister and all together evil lots, but it was also one of the few things she could do just to get by on the unforgiving continent.
She eventually journeyed to the other continents where she learned to hone her magic abilities, mainly water. Most of her healing magic she had learned from a very young age as it was essential in the environment she grew up in. She continued to search for riches, but she preferred to take up odd jobs when she could instead of leading people to their deaths. She had earned a reputation as a Siren in Nefarland and preferred to leave that part of her life behind her. She spent many of her years just traveling the continents and learning about each and everyone of them.
Currently, Ceto has her sights set on Ahz, the only continent she has yet to reach. The incentive of untold adventure, riches, and knowledge was just too much for her to pass up.
