Dartanya D’winter always had a wild spirit. So to channel her energy at a young age her father taught her lessons of the sword and her mother taught her skills of song and magic. She is not a swordmage, for she thinks those a dull and useless lot. No, she is what she calls, a hybrid. No particular class fits her right. Her fighting abilities have won her the position as head of the Musketeers.
She has a short temper and does not tolerate disrespect of any kind. The only person she seems to give any slack in the matter is Princess Anne. It is common discussion among the busy body servants of the castle how close the two are, though they both claim to be no more than the best of friends.
Aside from her horse Porthos, Dartanya is also followed by a spectre whom she refers to as Aramis. At her side is also a falcon, Athos, that she uses to communicate with others of like goals.
