Age of Aventus
Hypatia was trained as a grange-mage in a Meletian temple to Lyranda but found that her calling was on the field of battle. She took up the sword and shield of the Meletian army and showed great promise fighting off threats to the city.
During one battle, she was wounded on a high plateau overlooking Meletis. She saw a pegasus herd flying overhead and said a silent prayer. A pegasus flew down and allowed her to climb onto its back, saving her life. The two of them became inseparable.
Shortly after this event, she undertook a quest to help a sage return to a hidden island in the Siren Sea. The ship and crew, along with the sage, all perished during the trip. Only Hypatia survived.
