Her mother gave her the name Xurog, but she would take on her own name. Her mother was of the nomadic Kull, her father a high-ranking Urgal of the industrial Khan-Azuk. Her mother was killed during a raid when Xurog was at the age of 10, and so the girl went off in search of her father. He laughed in her face, saying that he would never sire a child on one of the uncivilized Kull, and so she lived in the streets.
On her eighteenth birthday, she returned to his doorstep once more, and challenged him to a battle. He laughed once more, the same guttural roar that had rung in her ears all this time, and decided to humor her.
She bested him. Not only that, she tore out his heart, and when onlookers saw her there, hands red and blood running down her chin, they gave her the name Hearteater.
She left the orcs then, calling herself Elizabeth simply because she liked the sound, and ventured through the kingdom, following the ways of the blood barbarians, fulfilling the promise that Hearteater gave.
