Shieva Merryweather or "Pea" as she later became called was born on the coastline of Scotland near the Dunnottar Castle. The little encampment she was born into was relatively small and consisted mainly of the elderly aside from the few younger generations. Shieva's settlement believed the best way to survive was to be entirely self sufficient and as such everyone had their own role within the group ranging from fixing things and tech, farming crops and the very rare cattle as well as first aid. Shieva's father was in the first aid section and her mother was in farming, they were already in their older midlife years when Shieva's mother unexpectedly fell pregnant and ended up giving birth nine months later! She was a bundle of joy and light in the darkness of the bleak times and as such got raised being the apple of their eye including her extended settlement family.
When she came of age to start helping out around the settlement, she started in the fields with her mother and enjoyed spending time with the plants, soil and the trees. It's during these times that her mother would tell her of stories to do with little tree spirits, fairies and elves that would sometimes leave little gifts for those that believed in them and if you left them little gifts in return, they would consider granting you a request or wish. When she was around seventeen years of age she started multi-tasking in the first aid section as her father started to fall fatigued and unwell due to old age. Wishing to take his place and help out she began learning underneath the first aiders. It was around this time it began even more aparent she struggled to read and instead had to try go by pictures and first hand teachings instead.
They had one particuarly harsh winter where food was sparse and so come spring time when they go to look at their seed stores, it turns out nearly all their seeds had been eaten except for the pea plants. Trying to make the best of a bad situation, she laboured to plant the entirity of their fields with all the pea seeds they had left. When they had grown fully to fruition, she came up with the idea of trying to make it into a meal but also stretch further by creating pea soup! It was because of this she gained the nickname Pea. After this due to unfortunate weather circumstances worsening their food rations and supplies started to get smaller and smaller until they could hardly support themselves any longer. Fearing their entire settlement would get wiped out if they didn't take action, they had heard of a settlement all the way out across the sea called Nyheim. Forcing them to make a harsh decision, they select the youngest and strongest from their tribe and gave them the rest of their supplies so they could try and make the journey to Nyheim.
After a heartbreaking good bye from all the things she had cherished and known, she eventually makes it to the snowy cold plains of Nyheim. Sadly getting seperated from her group due to her terrible navigational skills and high ability to get lost. She is now out by herself wandering around trying to find anything and hopefully not die in the process. She still carries her little charm necklace in hopes the tree spirits, fairies and elves will keep her safe.
