Character DNA - Nia Stork

I recently completed a Narrative Design Udemy course. The course had a great set of assignments and I decided to add a few here as a blog.

Starting with this Basic Character DNA. The image below is just for reference.

Lady Stork Nia


Nia was born in a poor family that lived in Stornik close to the banks of River Zemphe. Her family was mostly farmers. As a young girl, she wasn’t interested in farming and loved archery. She dreamt of being the Lady Stork someday but never worked towards it. In YN 8047, she noticed some commotion on the other side of the River Zemphe. A few days later the news started to spread across Stornik about a revolution in Jaqubi. Many people fled from Jaqubi and sought refuge in the outskirts of Stornik. The plight of the people set her heart ablaze and she started preparing for the Stor. A fight for the current leader/ contenders to elect the new leader.

She came victorious in the Stor and becomes the youngest Lady Stork. In YN 8053, when Jaq Alphonse breaks the treaty she decides to wage war against him. She does this for the sake of the people who suffered in his kingdom and the refugees who are away from their homeland.
