Background

Ellaine’s family had traditions rooted deeply in carpentry and woodworking.  For almost three generations the McCrae’s had a decently sized shop.  They were not as famous as other families or other established carpenters but they held a lot of pride for their skill and quality of work.

When Ellaine was young a contract was made by her father to supply a military official who had recently wed with a full bedroom set of woodwork.  The contract was made a yahren in advance. The project was treated with immense care by Ellaine’s father because their small shop did not usually see many large contracts.  He finished the pieces with almost a whole month remaining. Unbeknownst to the McCrae’s however, was that this was a plan devised by the official.  

Early on a sunny morning the family discovered that their shop had been broken into and a collection of pieces ranging from small to large were swiped from the building. Among them were all of the pieces that were destined for the contract.

Ellaine’s father was not able to deliver the pieces that were promised to the official.  He did not have to pay.  The investigation into the theft was at a stand still.  They had to close up shop and soon they had lost the building that their family had built for a few generations.  Later, rumors began to surface that the theft was orchestrated by the McCrae’s themselves because Ellaine’s grandfather did not approve of the marriage between her parents and even attempted to keep him from becoming an ‘heir’ to the family business.

On a whim Ellaine’s parents restarted their woodworking business out of their home in an effort to build funds to move away.  They used only word of mouth from people they had trusted and soon they were able to reach their goal.   They had settled their destination as Port Town in Shorewich.

Once they were there they had Ellaine sent to school and give her the life they could not have possibly given her.  Soon she was also learning woodworking from her father and cloth work from her mother in her spare time.  The family soon gained some much needed clientele from Port Town and were able to set up a small shop to work out of.

As yahren passed Ellaine began to handle more responsibilities around the shop.  She began to gather tinder from the vendors and help her mother with the bookkeeping. She had never really thought about her own future, and only contemplated the future of her mother, father and the business.
