Ingwyn was born in a small village close to the western border of Rohan, and her village was one of the first to be raided by Saruman’s hordes. Her parents were killed, and she fled west. Ingwyn was an only child and quite a bookworm; even though the Rohirrim didn’t have many books, she always managed to find something interesting to read. Her father, lacking a son, wanted Ingwyn to become a warrior, while her mother wanted her to marry a craftsman, who would be more likely to survive a war than a soldier. Ingwyn wanted none of this, and when she lost all, she decided to go west, away from the unstable Rohan border.
