First impressions may paint Elena Kruger as a lone wolf with blunt manners, amoral views and dark humour. She is known to have a ruthless streak, street smarts and an affinity toward being paid to do a job, a habit which persists since her unruly years as a mercenary. When Elena speaks, she can be direct, harsh and downright insulting, especially to those she does not like.
However, those who know her see a softer side. Over the past few years, she has steered away from the path of a ruthless mercenary, and accepted her destiny as the one to resurrect the Hexer Order from the brink of extinction.
In terms of beliefs, Elena is a recent - and very faithful - follower of the Holy Way. The core teachings of the true faith, which were shown to her by her lover Christina Magdalena, form a pillar of virtue around which she bases many of her decisions. In many ways, it is religion which has turned her on the straight and narrow.
Elena Kruger was born on the border between the Holy Gothic Empire and Wyzkow, on the Empire side. Her hometown was the border village of Waldau. Not much is known of her childhood, only that it was neglected and without guidance.
By adolescence she was involved with a street gang, thieving from merchant wagons and warehouses. She was caught in the act at fourteen and sentenced to hang.
However, she would be spared by mere coincidence, when a fire tore through the city that night. The guards opened the cells so the prisoners were not burned alive, and Elena escaped into the night, all records of her crime literally up in flames.
With a clean slate, she travelled north to Wyzkow under the naive assumption she could continue her wicked ways there. On the road she tried to pickpocket a group of guards and was caught. It was decided she would be hanged, though for some reason the guards gave this task to a vagabond named Janusz who was in town at the time.
Janusz took Elena into the woods and tied her up, leaving her in a safe place, before returning to the guards and lying that she was dead to collect his reward. He returned to Elena and explained to her that they had cheated him several times, so he was only returning the favour.
The man gave Elena the option to leave and continue her life of thievery, or come with him to find true purpose. She opted for the latter and journeyed with him to Wurtheim Castle, the last stronghold of the dying order known as the Hexers. It turned out Janusz was one of them.
Here she indeed found purpose as a Hexer in training. From the time she arrived at age fifteen, she spent a further five years in training. Not useless but not exceptional either, she scraped through.
Her training was roughly half complete when Wurtheim Castle was ransacked by an angry mob who burned it to the ground. The few remaining Hexers scattered into the wilderness; Elena never saw them again. But she took away from the training as a positive from the experience.
Without guidance, the now young adult Elena entered the wide world once more, using her skills to work as a sellsword, bounty hunter and monster slayer. She would continue down this path for the next decade, straying from the path of the hexers.
As the hexer masters dwindled, Elena found herself in a curious position as one of the last few members of the extinct order. So with the help of Inquisitor Captain Christina Magdalena, Elena set about ending her mercenary ways and restoring the order as its new grand master.
After a battle to reclaim the long-abandoned Wurtheim Castle from a corrupt former hexer, Elena was declared the new Grand Mistress of the Order, and found herself at the beginning of a new chapter - both for herself and for the hexers as a whole.
