Olivia is a beautiful, charming dancer, and also is a native of Baldur’s Gate. She was born under the roof of a poor family. She were abandoned by her parents when she was very young. After living a sad and hard life on the streets, Olivia began dancing to make money. She said to herself "I cannot go on like this!" She watched a dancer on a street corner and memorized all of her moves. She wasn't a very coordinated child and it was very difficult. She didn't have real shoes, so her feet were a mess of blisters, and she fell so many times that she was covered in cuts and bruises. It was painful and miserable. And very, very difficult. But she never cried. With time, she became famous for her charm and skill and was adopted by a cruel man, who raised her. Her adoptive father often hit her, even when she did not do anything wrong. She eventually fled from him, join to a traveling troupe of entertainers, who employed her as a dancer. They traveled the length of the Sword Coast with their performances, she danced from city to city, and the entire coast became her stage, until the age of sixteen, when she appeared more like a young woman than a child. During one of Olivia's performances in Waterdeep, the legendary city of the North, a noble man was smitten by her and plotted to kidnap her. However, a Sun Soul monk stepped in and prevented this. Initially, Olivia sought only refuge in the Monastery of the Sun, but found herself drawn to the disciplined life of a Sun Soul monk. They took her for who they saw and just chose to be kind. Olivia was amazed by their kindness. She had never seen people with such good will. Naturally graceful, athletic and in search of something in which to believe, she received her monk training. Order give her stability and purpose. She wanted to learn to be able to defend herself from a melee enemy. She wanted to be able to disable the target without actually hurting the target. She was not learning how to fight. She was learning how to survive if someone wanted to fight with her.
She became a skilled monk, and eventually took up adventuring. As the monks of Sune put it, the sun blows a kiss to the moon, and the moon blows the kiss down to the people. The sweetest light is that which we reflect from others. Now she try to live by the tenets of the Sun Soul monks. She pray that her light reveals the truth in darkness, offers succor to those in need, and obeys all just authority.
