Ellys Kane was born in Jadetiger City in the year 980 AE. Her mother was an elven shopkeeper and her father was Walton Kane, the captain of the Crimson Fury. Her mother died when she was young, so she spent most of her youth at sea with her father. This is where her rough attitude and enjoyment of drink were developed. When Ellys was 19 years old, her father one day kicked her off of the ship after a delivery in Jadetiger City without explanation. She was furious and vowed she would never speak to her father again.
2 months later the Crimson Fury was attacked by pirates and her father disappeared and is presumed dead. Ellys suspects that her father knew that the attack was coming and that it wasn't pirates, and that this is the reason why he refused to let her sail on that particular job. After news of her fathers disapperance, Ellys collected her things and disappeared herself, resurfacing 4 years later in Ashearth City. She does work for the Exceptional Cleavage Adventuring Company, but also spends a great deal of time researching any lead she can find on the attack on the Crimson Fury.
