Background

Rhia mac Gulia was apparently born on December 6, 115 AD in ancient Ulster (present day Antrim), though like many of her kind she was in fact a foundling. Growing up, Rhia became dissatisfied with her lot in life, often showing a marked preference in fighting with boys rather then playing with her fellow girls. One day, after her 16th birthday, the man who she had believed to be her brother attempted to rape her. In the process, he revealed their blood ties as being false. In the process of defending herself, she killed her assailant. Panicked and confused, Rhia fled into the night. The girl would wander over the countryside for several years, picking pockets and stealing whatever she could to survive.

She was eventually caught in 135 attempting to steal from the kitchens of the scarred king Fergus mac Leti. Forced to work for him as a serving girl, the king would let out his own frustrations over his disfigurement by beating her. After one particularly violent evening, she promised to help the king get his vengeance upon the sea serpent which had destroyed his face. Leading the warrior to Loch Rudraige, Rhia sat by the shore as the king destroyed his hated foe. After a long battle, the exhausted king vanquished his enemy and crawled back to the shore. Pretending to offer certain "favors" to the warrior, Rhia took his sword, Caladbolg, and slew him where he lay. However, she had not counted one of the king's loyal servants following them out to the location, and in his fury, the man stabbed Rhia in the back, and she experienceed her first death.

While the servant took the body of the king back to his kingdom (and concocting a story of him dying of exhaustion), Rhia awoke, the sword still clutched in her hand. Confused and frightened, the girl fled across the countryside until a voice called out to her. Entering a woods, she met an old man who referred to himself as "The Green Man" or "The Old Man of the Woods." He explained who she was and the rules of The Game to her and began to teach her how to use her sword to defend herself. He also introduced her to the ways of magic, a subject which would become a passion for her for many years. After many years of training and preparing, The Green Man set a final test for Rhia: a fight between teacher and student. In the ensuring battle, Rhia won and though pained to do so, beheaded her mentor, in the process experiencing her first Quickening and inheriting her master's proficiently in magic.

Rhia, like many other Immortals, soon began to wander the world, increasing her skills as a sorceress and swordfighter, as well as mentoring other Immortals. In an attempt to get an edge on her opponents, Rhia had a "soul tattoo" placed on herself, effectively binding her essence to her body for eternity. However, she soon tired of the constant fighting and running and finally in the late 19th century retired herself from The Game. She currently wanders Tokyo as a passive observer of mortals, only taking heads in defense of herself.

Abilities

Rhia is an immortal who gains the powers of other similar immortals she kills, and this is able to absorb their abilities into her own skill set. Her own soul is bound to her body by spirit tattoos. Besides her own abilities in fighting and with her sword, Caladbolg, she as absorbed abilities in magic, environmental control, divination, and purification. She also has a working knowledge of Alchemy.
