Maraji the Untamed
Name given to Maraji Gelikijun, a vagabond trader/road agent who became a member of the First Order. She was known for being incredibly beautiful in the dark way of her ancestors, with a penchant for having men war to lay with her. She first met Herman when he saved her from a Guillos or band of marauding Old Ones, by using Lysander’s Eye to pin them to the trees they slept by. Mariji was first discontent with Herman and sought to destroy his army from the inside out. After three failed attempts to besmirch the Lord’s name, she began to realize that those who were with him weren’t just loyal, but actually loved him, a very different way of respect in the lands she came from. Mariji proved her ferocity by leading the other exiles towards the banner of Herman and then by leading them into battle. After losing an arm to the Others in a small confrontation, she was heralded by her own people as having used the severed appendage to fatally beat her torturer to death. She then cauterized her own wound, killed the remaining enemies, and headed towards Herman’s camp. For her bravery, Herman elevated her to Lt. General, gaining the woman the admiration of thousands, including Lancelot the Targe. Lancelot and Mariji married – the only First Order Knights to marry while the Unification Wars were in occurence – and fathered a child that would become known as Klinju, who would ultimately become a member of the Second Order.
Mariji was killed prior to the Battle of Stander’s Field, dying to cannon fire that shredded her internal organs. She was buried in the vast open plains near the Summer house of the Villeyres.
