Destiny Bullard- Kestrel Mackenzie, Esq.

Esquire

Destiny joined the group in February 2011 and hails from Bristol, Connecticut. Her favorite weapon is the dussack. Her personal colors are purple, black, and gold.

Character Bio:
Kestrel was born in Glenfinnan, Scotland. The youngest child – and only daughter – of a metal smith/merchant who ran the village’s smithy along with most of Kestrel’s male relatives, she grew up a bit wild, and with very little female influence. Her mother, an aunt, and two cousins were the only other born-Mackenzie women. The whole extended family lived in a cluster up on a ridge above the village, and, being the youngest and smallest, she was often overlooked. However, this worked more in Kestrel’s favor, than against her.
