“All things have a spirit within. My spirit is my strength.”
You were born in a sacred natural place, and you were marked from birth with supernatural gifts. Although your parents were farmers, your presence was a blessing to them and your village. The druids of the circle overseeing the land near your home tutored you from a young age, allowing you to eschew the normal life a farm child. You became able to shift your form when you entered puberty. Although your build is slight, your powers of spirit grant you all the might you need.
