From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
Daughter of Kara the Valkyrie, Isabeau (Izzy) has not come to Paragon of her own freewill. She was in fact kidnapped by the Circle of Thorns 2 Years ago. The Circle of thorns performed experiments on her. By combining her genes with those of a jaguar named Jade, she has gained increased speed and reflexes, along with spots and a tail. But she has lost all of her memories. Having escaped from her captors, she wonders the streets in search of something or someone. She has no Idea that her sister Kegan has come in search of her. She avoids the woods in Perze but doesn’t know why.
Origin of Kara and Helgi: The “Lost” Lay of Kara
Helgi Was protected by his wife Kara the Valkyrie. She would fly over him in battle, granting him luck and the victory. One day while fighting Hromund he swings his sword to high and cut off Kara’s foot killing her. With Kara dead Helgi’s luck has run out and Hromund cuts of his head. Odinn sends the Valkyries to collect Kara and Helgi and bring them back to Valhalla.
Freyja is not at all happy that Helgi has gotten Kara killed again. Freyja is allowed to choose half of the warrior slain in battle, and as custom dictates is allowed first choice. She chooses Kara, since this is in fact the third time Helgi has gotten her killed. Odinn is greatly annoyed at the loss another Valkyrie to Freyja, but he must follow the rules. Kara did if fact fall on the battlefield so Freyja is allowed to choose her. Odinn in turn takes Helgi. Kara goes to Folkvang to live with Freyja and the other Valkyries while Helgi stays in Valhalla to train for Ragnarok. In Folkvang Kara gives birth to twin girls Kegan and Isabeau “Izzy”.
Time moves slower in Folkvang so by the time Kegan and Izzy are 16 a great deal of time has passed on earth. The great warriors and their sons left Valhalla and Folkvang to fight in the Rikti Wars (Ragnarok). At this time all of the remaining Valkyries and their children travel to the northern part of Scandinavia and settle in a village they call “New Folkvang”. The Valkyries start to train their children in the art of combat.
One day after lessons Kegan and Izzy go down to the lake to cool off. Members of the “Circle of Thorns” attack the girls. Izzy is captured by them and taken away. While in their custody they perform a spell on her. Mutating her genes with those of a jaguar. She gains extraordinary powers from the experiment and is able to escape as a result. Breaking out of her cell she makes her way out of the caves and out into the city. Here she instinctively starts fighting crime and searching for answer. She has no clear memory of her life before her escape and no knowledge of her sister Kegan. Though she does feel a connection to someone or something she can’t quite put her finger on it.
