Nicole Renee Beauchene was born to Gentian Beauchene and his wife Constancia Beauchene in the year of 1360. Gentian, after leaving his life as a soldier, moved to a small village in the outskirts of Burgundy, Franc. It was there he returned to his original trade as a blacksmith. It was in the very same village, he met Constancia.
For a time, life was peaceful. The serenity ended abruptly not long after Nicole's sixth birthday. A small group of bandits, led by a Hungarian immigrant, attacked the village. After years of living in peace, Gentian took up his sword once again to defend his home. He was the only trained fighter and, together, with the other men of the village, manged to kill off most of the attackers and drive those remaining away. There were many causalities, on both sides of the fight. When Gentian returned to his home, he found Constancia dead on the floor and Nicole hiding in the bedroom.
Once things had settled down, Gentian learned the bandits had been terrorizing the countryside; attacking any villages or traveling merchants that crossed their path. Attacks, like the one in Nicole's village, were happening more and more frequently in the past few years. The people were beginning to respond, rising up against the bandits. Gentian decided to remain in his village to care of Nicole, rather than joining the resistance.
It was seven years later before they were attacked again. By that time, Gentian had grown old and was not the fighter he was in his youth. Led by the same man, the bandits attacked, killing Gentian in the process. Nicole picked up her father's fallen sword, determined to get justice for her father.
She charged the remaining bandits, soon aided by the members of a merchant caravan that had just arrived. This was no simple merchant caravan; it was a group of merchants who were also guards for hire. Although Nicole tried to fight alongside them, she did not possess the skill with a blade and was not much help. The leader observed her fighting and, after the fight, approached her. He introduced himself as Brannith Marius, leader of the House Marius guard. He wondered why she was fighting, and so Nicole told the stories of her parents' deaths. After a pause, Brannith offered to accept her into his house, and to train her as he did the other members of House Marius. She accepted but kept her surname.
