Ilona was born in a traveling band of Varisians. The spiritual leader of the band marked her birth as faithful, as a trail of swirling clouds was seen in the sky the moment she was born (which she took as a sign of Pharasma), and some bandmembers saw a bird with a very colourful tail perching on the roof of the wagon during the birth (which she took as a sign of Shelyn).
The third mark however was not recognised by the leader: Ilona has a strange birthmark in the small of her back that looks like the symbol of Malcanthet.
Ilona grew up to be a very beautiful child and a gifted dancer and musician. Everything she tried her hand at she took up immediately. And she always got her way and made people feel good about it.
When she hit puberty things started to change a little. Her looks and her charms started to cause some problems. She would start turning heads, and her playful manners started some fights among boys near her age. Eventually her folks attempted to reign her in somewhat to keep her out of trouble, but she tought this unfair. This is how she started to develop a mean streak.
She started to use her looks and charms even more to get whatever she wanted. She used them to cause trouble for people when she had perceived a slight. She used them to break up couples. Ans she used them to have fun.
Eventually this way of living had to go bad. One night when she was 16 she had taken a girl into the woods near the wagon camp to have some fun. She had done this to tease her boyfriend. They guy however was not ammused with her and he went looking for her. When he found them he went into a rage and stabbed them both with his dagger and left them for dead. The girl was killed instantly, but she lay there for hours in agony when someone approached her. She was given a choice to live, if she left the wagons and went to Cheliax to a school. She would get enough money to live and pay for the school, and was to befriend a girl studying there. It was of paramount importance that they were to become close friends. She agreed and was healed.
School was at first a real culture shock. Comming from the wagons, this stately place with its strange customs was a bit of a cold shower for her. But she took it in stride, and handed it like a dance. once you know the steps and the rythm it’s all easy. Within a week she managed to fit in among the other students and start working her way up the foodchain.
She managed to get in touch with Lavinia, and took a liking to her nature, her love of practical jokes. It didn’t take her very long to get close to her and tried to get as close as possible, since pillow friends are friends too. Even though this started as a kind of a job for her, she has come to like lavinia; and her time in that school was actually fun.
When Lavinia left the school to go back home and run her business; Ilona decided to tag along, in part because she likes her, and in part because she hadn’t received different orders.
She has taken up residence in the city and visits Lavinia regularly. She has helped her trying to cope with the loss of her parents, and assists her with her business (providing distractions for opposing parties or getting a hold of information, …).
