The Sunless Six
At a young age, Anakis’ family, which consisted of her, her parents and her 3 brothers, were driven out of her community because of their fiendish appearance. The family fled to the fringes of society.
Being mostly urbanfolk, Anakis and her family struggled to live in the forests and off the land. A compassionate nomadic tribe of Firbolgs welcomed them and adopted them as one of their own.
From the tribe, Anakis developed a love for nature and art. She was later inspired to follow the druidic ways when a powerful Aasimar druid named Jakilmir visited the tribe.
Jakilmir pointed Anakis to a local druidic circle to which she could learn from the druidic ways.
One teacher was named Belak. Belak tried countless times to indoctorate Anakis with his hate for civilization. Anakis would refuse the teachings, believing that nature and civilization can live in harmony.
Anakis reported to the elder’s of the circle that Belak was becoming increasingly hostile in pressing his beliefs on her and his other younger apprentices.
The druidic circle investigated and found that Belak was a danger, and his beliefs were becoming too radical. They stripped the druid of his druidic focus, and exiled him.
Years later, strange reports of unnatural half plant beasts that have been creating unrest in the forests and fields nearby the small town of Oakhurst. As an initiation, the druidic circle sent Anakis to investigate the situation.
ALLIES INTO THE SUNLESS CITADEL

Upon talking to Jakilmir, Anakis discovers that burning the Gulthias Tree may have released the spirit a long dead Vampire, named Gulthias.
