Niamh Shadowfen is the daughter of the powerful warrior Benvolion Shadowfen and the niece of Kayandre Shadowfen. She is a pretty girl with her father's dark green hair and demanding presence. She detests her Aunt for her xenophobic attitude towards outsiders claiming her father did not raise her to believe the worst in others.
She currently lives in Nighthaven but has made plans to further train closer to the capital. She feels somewhat obliged to care for her younger sister who suffers from an almost fatal illness.
