Revna's career has been a series of glorious highs and abyssal lows. She started out as a member of the Sheathed Blade, a group dedicated to hunting leucrotta. After three years, she went home for a break and was captured by drow and taken to the underdark. There, she met and escaped with other adventurers, and the help of a vampire. Why the undead creature worked with them instead of attacking was a mystery, but he stayed true to his word and helped them battle their way through deurgar and their kobold slaves to the surface.

Once there, Revna sought out her comrades, only to discover they had left Cormyr, heading west towards Baldur's Gate. She followed their trail, piecing the route together through talks with innkeeps and farmers. She trailed them to Scornubel and Soubar, then west along the Winding Water to the coast. There the trail headed north through the Troll Hills, past isolated farmsteads and forts, until the famed city of Waterdeep.

Revna reached the metropolis in the height of summer, when the population of the city swelled to almost half a million people. She feared never finding her friends, but luckily, they had befriended men who guarded the South Gate to the city. When Revna asked, they gladly relayed that the group had left for Silverymoon in the spring. Knowing she was only months behind them, Revna joined a caravan bound for the northern city.

The caravan leaving the following week was the last time Revna saw the city of Waterdeep for almost two decades. The doomed merchants never made it to Silverymoon, thanks to orc and giant attacks. Revna and a few of the guards survived and hunted the creatures in the hills and woods for years, making a name for themselves as guardians of caravans.

When her small band found the old hold buried in the southern area of the High Forest, it was a momentous occasion. Inside, they found multiple subterranean levels, and enough nightmares to haunt a thousand nights. Undead, golems and things without names fell to their blades and spells. In the lowest levels, Revna herself defeated a strange, twisted giant with an adventuring company worth of magic items. From it, she took a magical belt of strength. This only enhanced her skill more, and she and her friends carried on.

Soon, Revna noticed people recognized her when she would stop in Longsaddle, Yartar or any of the small villages between Waterdeep and Silverymoon. She had made a reputation for helping those who needed it, without concern of payment. As a result, she found it hard to buy her own drinks in most taverns. Her comrades acheived similar fame, but being human, were retiring to quieter lives. Revna continued on, choosing her battles more carefully, but not quitting.

Two winters ago, she was surprised by and managed to slay Vermithron Mellagus, a blue dragon. She was very badly wounded in the fight, and laid up in the beasts' lair until spring. Only then did she drag what wealth she could to Waterdeep. In exchange for identifying the magic she found, she sold the location of the lair to the Rightful Order of Magists and Protectors. Chief among the loot was a magnificent set of red dragon scale armour that once belonged to a paladin of ancient times.

With the armour, Revna was nearly unstoppable. She bludgeoned her way through orc war parties and ogre hunting camps, usually single-handed. Even her indomitable spirit needed a break though. She traveled to Sundabar, to dwell amongst her own kind for a season.

Now, in the spring of 1368, she has answered a summons from Amelior Amanitas, the famed sage. He asked her (and she imagines, other worthies) to help with a quest of importance.
