|Kiri: Barbarian she-slave|
We recently took the time to sit down with genuine Nemedian chroniclers to learn what they had on Kiri; with their usual diligence and attention to detail, it turns out they had quite a bit!
So who is Kiri exactly, and where is she from?
Well, Kiri was born in far northern Aquilonia, somewhere close to Cimmeria and the Nemedian Border Ranges, known on the last Aquilonian census as Kirei by a scribe’s error. She was birthed by a Brythunian woman who was the slave a of warrior that was at the very least Æsir in heritage, one among a number of women on his slave chain. Born into this dirty and miserable hovel of a slavepen, it meant Kiri was born a slave, a condition that been her lot for nearly all her adult life.
The young girls on the slave chain were subjected to regular beatings and whipping, forced to brutally hard labor until they came of age, at which point they were also initiated as sex slaves. At the command of he who owned them, Kiri’s initiation to her sexuality was a vicious gang rape by the adult women of her slave chain once her body was matured. Born and raised malnourished, Kiri’s is a physique gaunt and bony, noted for her extreme physical weakness, but it’s rumored that dark forces also conspired to give Kiri her feebleness.

Had she been brought up properly, Kiri’s skill with blades and bows would have made her a fine warrior. Instead, her condition lead her to rely on her quickness and agility, as her nearly nonexistent strength is often outmatched by even the weakest opponents she has faced. As even light armor significantly encumbers Kiri, she’s come to use a half-naked fighting style to outmaneuver opponents, but even with this, she’s resigned to the fact that she will face defeat by most she faces.
Kiri has been clever enough to earn coin with this disadvantage by working as an arena jobber; that is, a warrior not paid to fight and win but to fight and lose. Facing defeat each time, often brutal and humiliating defeat. The abilities bestowed her by the forces deciding her fate means she has survived even mortal wounds in the arena, making her a crowd favorite for the ghastly and bloody wounds she’s suffered. Coupled with fervent streaks of masochism and exhibitionism that’s only been increased over time has resulted in a fighting slave that thoroughly enjoys the pain and brutality subjected against her far more than the reward of any coin.

But there’s more to her background than just this?
Oh yes. In fact, Kiri is the hapless subject of an obscure prophecy between northern, barbarian goddesses, supposedly made in prehistoric time that has doomed her to an eternity of pain and torment. We will discuss the details of this at another time as we expose them, but this destiny combined with the fact Kiri temporarily wore a Mark of Acheron as a Stygian slave all but seals her doom.
|Have short pants, will suffer|
Alright, so what’s with that costume?
Our chroniclers in Nemedia have been following the barbarian slave’s story closely since at least her capture and slavery on the Barachan Isles; she’s developed her present style of undress since then, although she’s never worn very much ever since she was a young girl. While always sporting a slave collar and bracelets, it’s the Nemedian breeches that have become her trademark garb. It’s fair to say she’s even famous for them by now.

|The barbarian slave requires very little urging to get out of her clothing|
|"Kiri's garments encumber her, Masters. She begs to be rid of them."|

|Stepping from the Nemedian scout's skirt, the short breeches are revealed|
|Such a tight-fitting and skimpy undergarment it is...|
At any rate, the collar and Nemedian pants are at the same time an impractical and functional costume for Kiri, serving as both public and dungeon wear. It would be obvious to say this is going to get her killed; in fact it has several times by now.

Even in the dungeon?
Especially in the dungeon, according to some who have adventured with the barbarian slave. Facing the blades of enemies, vile creatures and deadly traps one might expect in Hyboria's worst dungeons and ruins is nothing less than a sexual thrill for her. Some have watched her climax or wet her breeches right in the middle of a combat situation.
But seriously…naked teats wherever she goes?
Remember that this Brythunian is an extreme exhibitionist, to say the least. She’s used to much colder climates, so in places like Aquilonia and much of Khitai she’s comfortable half-naked, but this is constantly a thrill for her as well. Now in southern kingdoms such as Stygia where they often dress scantily to begin with, it might seem even less of a problem, but of course to the xenophobic Stygians, an ignorant northern barbarian strutting her stuff clad only in Nemedian bottoms that fit so tightly that they only cover the upper half of her arse is an invitation for trouble, especially a sexually explicit female barbarian.
But yet she does it anyway.
Well, there’s her intense and genuine desire to be hurt and humiliated, and attacks or mockery by self-righteous Stygians would more than satisfy that fetish. It’s her sense of nakedness and helplessness that does it for her. And of course a skinny and ignorant, underclad blonde armed with a sword isn’t likely to be taken very seriously in most lands. Then there’s the probability of arrest and punishment by Setite priests and their guards, but of course it’s common knowledge Kiri’s been brutally tortured at the hands of Stygians more than once.
Your chronicles aren’t really that generous on the matter of her intelligence, is she really that ignorant?
Well, she’s been the manner of slave that’s largely looked at by men (and women) as a piece of meat and little else. Either expendable labor when she was a girl, or as something to be used and abused as a grown slave. Not at all like slaves and concubines in Khitai who are highly educated and cultured. Even without this upbringing in the collar, Kiri has a barbarian heritage; this has resulted in a very uneducated female with very poor reading and writing skills. But overall she’s not very intelligent at all, but does possess a streetwise and wilderness cunning that’s helped her.
Still, it seems we’re talking about someone who might be easily taken.
In many senses yes. Kiri will earn respectable coin in the arena, but is well known for prostituting herself in cities like Tarantia and Khemi. She’s well known in those places for having no limits with anyone…or anything.
I...see. Thank you very much for your time, chronicler.
