While journeying across the Fenstone Moors, Noelle tried to recall what her life was like before she was kidnapped and interrogated by that librarian and inquisitor.
She remembered being a maid of a well-known noble. However, she wasn't just a typical maid, but also a swordswoman who can handle her own in a battle; a "maid-knight" she called herself. Her job was cozy and she was paid well, but it came to an end when she developed strange powers, which led to her being forcefully taken away.
But...is that truly what her past was like? She couldn't remember due to the Elysium she had been taking due to the interrogation and the visions she had been experiencing against her will. All she remembered was that she wore a dirtied maid uniform when she was being interrogated by that librarian.
Perhaps there is some truth to what she thought her past was, but for now, she must explore and grow stronger.

So, meet Noelle Arclight, the prophet on the run! She is based off--or well, quite literally is Noelle from Genshin Impact. Only difference is I came up with the last name myself. She will be the last Genshin Impact character I'll use to play through DestinyQuest, considering I've planned out my characters' identities for the third and fourth books already.
I like the start of Book 2 already and I'm surprised that your hero here starts with a lot more than your hero from Book 1, which is neat. I like the town of Carvel and the quality of loot from the two green quests.
If you've seen the text above my heroine's information, I've came up with a small backstory for Noelle to fit within Valeron. However, I don't know what twists this book will give my character (like how Yoimiya was actually shadowborn) and if it will contradict with my backstory for her or not, so I left it up in the air like "Is this really her past? Or did the Elysium from her interrogation affect her state of mind badly?"
Anyways, I am planning on playing as a typical sword-swinging Warrior for this playthrough of DestinyQuest 2: Heart of Fire. I'll post another status update once I get through a few more Act 1 content here.
I guess my only question is if the conflict between the Church and the Wiccans is presented like "gray-and-gray morality" as in, neither side is completely good or evil? Because if I am to be honest, I'm not very comfortable with the church's actions and conquering.
