Iona had made a deal with Bagoda, to set things right in her own mind; however she (from the start) thought she could out smart the witch.

Iona, tossing herself on Aaron’s sword committed the worst kind of suicide, Bagoda would not have this, instantly she showed up in a swirling whirlwind of death to claim her assassin prize. Attempting to stop her, some of the heroes were wounded but Bagoda left with Iona anyways.

Months went by and no one knew the horrors that Bagoda had Ionas half dead body and torn soul complete, they changed her and morphed her; she became a creature reborn in shadows and fog, Bagoda used her magic to repair the falling body of Iona and encased it in roots from the swamp where she called home.

Iona was completely subservient to Bagoda and completed her every task, when Bagoda left however, Iona no longer had the mental shackles on her brain and quickly fell to sanity with what she had done. Iona had literally ripped her soul into pieces.

An adventurous and outgoing young woman from Baemore. Iona is a half elf whose human grandparents own the Brimstone Inn where she works as a barmaid. Her family came to Baemore from Car’tie ten years ago to escape the Paramar crack downs near the end of The Nameless War. Iona’s mother died during the journey and her father was arrested by Paramar guards for carrying a symbol of Corellon not long before they fled leaving her grandparents as her sole caregivers.

Iona has struggled somewhat due to her mixed heritage and originally coming from a foreign country to fit in, but over time has found her place in Baemore. She found a strange companionship in Orel Haldon. Iona became fascinated with the man’s work and as Iona grew older she began to apprentice under Orel.

Iona’s life took a turn after the camping trip with Kara Starag lead to her becoming an adventurer with Tavion, Aaron, and Arseni. Though she initially saw it as a “grand adventure” Iona soon suffered greatly as a result. First coming into self doubt over getting an innocent woman killed, then later having her family and Selise taken by necromancers along with the rest of her friend’s families unable to save Kara’s father. This lead to her training under Mara Brightwood as an assassin to become stronger and better protect the people around her. Last was her death, after losing in a bet with a demon only avoiding becoming it’s slave due to the summer solstice preserving her soul.

A vampire known as Caldwrath The Vile turned Iona into his thrall for a time after her death, mentally dominating her into his “willing” servant. Iona was rescued after the party slayed Caldwrath and returned to being a mortal again, but at the cost of losing Selise.
