La Dolorosa Overture
Catalina was the second born and only girl of a group of triplets. Her family wasn't very wealthy, but they didn't live in the slums either. She grew up being a rather sickly girl, having unexplained gain of weight and irregular periods. It was only until she became 15 when her family realized that their only daughter had a sickness that caused her to be infertile.
Both her brothers, Agustín and Bernardo eventually leave the small house and become spice merchants and as soon as they are gone her family starts treating her badly and rejecting her; Catalina soon discovers that both her brothers were the ones convincing her family not to kick her out the house.
After a year or so, of loneliness, reject, and little communication with her brothers, she receives the news that both, Agustín and Bernardo had been captured by Barnasy corsairs, and taken in as christian slaves for the Islamic market in North Africa.
After studying for a while, Catalina decides to go off and search for her brothers, not listening to reason and avoiding the thought of both of them being dead. She escapes her home and begins to search for a crew to join.
