Epoch Season One
Elizabeth Bryce's origins are little known, but any mention of her name will bring to light she is a highly wanted criminal. She rose to infamy as a bandit queen after her first atrocity, and also as a face to put on a profane demonic cult whose members are shrouded in anonymity. Before her name became blackened, she took up residence in Eldin and had for four years been a traveling musician. Her horse had been bought with her earnings playing in bars and village squares, but no one ever noticed her using her gifts for worship.
One fateful night in Eldin, three guards were slain and their corpses tied to a tree in the middle of the square. On the ground, painted in blood, were many sigils professing allegiance to a fallen angel whose name was blurred by dogs licking at the writing. Witnesses pinned her to the murders, which she revels in having committed as a sacrifice to her dark masters.
Ever since then, she has been on the run and is unwelcome in most areas, but the underworld welcomes her with open arms. She takes up camaraderie with creatures of darkness, and though undesirable, has honeyed words and a silver tongue. The price on her head is high, and she takes sick pleasure in felling those who try to bring her in. Her skill as an eldritch marauder is feared by many. Update: Her bounty has officially hit seven figures as of Day 2, making it the highest in the land.
Epoch Season 2
Elizabeth Bryce's origins are little known to the public, but any mention of her name will bring to light she is a highly wanted criminal. A year earlier, she founded the Order of the Crimson Eclipse, a cult devoted to pagan libertarianism and her deity, the Dark Father. Its members are in the hundreds, and many of them have formed warbands calling themselves the Crimson Raiders, who have devoted their efforts at this time to disrupting the Hylian forces with their visceral hit and run tactics. Elizabeth rides across the land committing all sorts of atrocities, reveling in carnage.
From murdering over 70 in Castle Town on the Second Day of Disharmony to fighting in the Fourth Day's climactic battle, she is a warrior priestess to be feared. Her skill with a blade is just as legendary as her skill in the creative arts. Before all of the mayhem, she was a traveling musician and minstrel for four years and was quite popular. But then she turned to a lifestyle of horrific proportions. One that has led to the King of Hyrule offering a five million rupee bounty for her alive and three million for her dead.
In retreating from the grand melee of the Fourth Day, she aided the Zora nation along with Polaris Eridanus and Majin Shadowcloak by the rescue of Prince Mako the Magnificent. This was a rare act of heroism for a woman with the nickname of Black Betty. But war causes strange partnerships to unfold, and nothing was more odd to the Zora than the sight of Hyrule's Most Wanted riding into their Domain with their heir slumped over a horse.
