Rowan Tombs is young and adventurous she spends most of her time outside taking photos, which she either sells or keeps, depending if they are commissioned or not. Her life as a free-lance photographer, lets her go to places outside the cozy Sunset Valley. This goes outside of her older brother's comfort zone as well as he worries about his little sister, though Rowan doesn't understand why.
As a child, Rowan went to public school and after school she was girl scout. She had a habit of collecting butterflies and like most children at that age, she was often outdoors playing, grazing her knees and climbing trees.
When Rowan was a teenager, she continued in Public School, taking after school lessons in art, which is where she discovered her talent for Photography. Her only fame in school was being the younger sister of the football team captain, Garrus Tombs, this made her a target for people trying to climb the popularity ladder by using her as a way to befriend her brother, though this on most occasions failed as Rowan often saw through their plans. In truth, she didn't have many friends, only one remained with her from Childhood.
When Prom season started, Rowan wasn't bothered by the pumped up drama which all the other girls seemed to be. Instead, she would stay at home, most of the time until the school started to take notice in her talent for Photography and asked her if she would take the pictures, instead of hiring a professional.
During the later part of her teen life, Rowan did get a part-time job at the local book store as well as start trying to get commissioned for her photography work. She also started taking lessons in Sim Fu, which was paid out of her own money as she wanted to start being "independent" for herself.
She graduated Public School with high marks and celebrated her graduation by taking a trip to France with her family.
Now, Rowan works as a Freelance Photographer and is currently living in the house "Cormorant", with her older brother, Garrus, who has now moved from a jock in school playing football to Professional Football! but this isn't about him.
Her jobs means she spends a lot of time outside, and when she saved up enough money she travelled to China. There she took a place in the Sim Fu sparring matches against the locals. She also took quests from them, which started her love for exploring tombs. Currently, she's travelling the world, exploring tombs and taking pictures for the funds, so she can continue her journey, much to her older brother's disapproval.
