Niffler Shoes is the third daughter of Eleanor and Straps Shoes. Strap Shoes is the youngest son of Sparkles Shoes. Sparkle Shoes is the first son and rumored assassin of Norman Shoes. Norman Shoes began the Shoes Farming commune.
Becoming a Ranger
Niffler Shoes grew up on a gnome farming commune. In this community Grandpa Sparkles Shoes was in charge of extended family as he was the eldest gnome. He did not have a particularly close relationship with Niffler, but passively gained her respect and loyalty as he did with all farming gnomes.
When Niffler was 7, she was out in the fields as was the forest gnome's jobs. She was left behind by the adults in the group and would have died if a fairy who called himself Majin hadn't come along. Majin taught Niffler many of her ranger skills as she survived until her family found her again.
From the age 7 to 55, Niffler returned to the forest to play with Majin, they pulled many pranks on her commune.
Stopping a tragedy
Unfortunately, at 55, Niffler's engagement partner was announced. She was to marry her 5th cousin, it is said that the gnome had asked to leave the family to live in the forest but had been denied. Upon hearing that his friend would have to leave, Majin decided that killing her fiance, grandfather Sparkles and then burning the commune to the ground was the best plan of action to help his friend and keep her in the forest. Niffler, however, thought otherwise. After much argument and clear plans of mass murder, Niffler was forced to shoot her friend when he had turned away from her. He was pinned to an oak tree. After this tragedy, it was two months before she returned to the forest. The arrow was still in the oak tree, but there was no sign of the fay's body. After this event she had decided to hunt and live as a forest gnome until her wedding day came. Luckily for Niffler, a few months before the wedding she was swept away onto the side of a mountain. There her true adventure began.
Borfis is a Tibetan Mastiff purchased with the help of Matilija. It took a day for him to bond with Niffler, and has since served as her gnome horse. He is loyal, a bit more wary of danger than his master and has excellent senses. His favorite treats are squirrel jerky and femur bones. He enjoys having his ears scratched and his belly rubbed.
