Odessa Elwyn is an illegitimate child of a noble within Ishgard. Born to her mother Hera Elwyn, she lived on the frozen streets of Ishgard before her mother died when she was eight. Her father Edmont Fortemps took her in shortly afterwards. Growing up in her father’s house was tough. She was never truly accepted into the family, she always felt ostracized. Both of her brothers didn’t care for Odessa, and Edmont’s wife detested her. Edmont always did his best to make her feel welcome but there was little he could accomplish.
Since Odessa wasn’t ever truly a noble, the only way for her to be recognized by the rest of her family was to become a knight. Odessa started training at the age of ten. She was gifted at fighting with the spear and when her training was done at the age of eighteen, she was able to become a knight. She has spent the last three years fighting with her brothers and sisters in arms for the people of Ishgard, and defending against the hordes of dragons that threatened to desolate the city.
