Three Pounds is a brave monk born in Tyria. Raised as an orphan she lived a life in solitude. Never knowing her true name, the name "Three Pounds" was given to her from the other children she lived with in the orphan house. She was constantly teased about her small size and delicate frame. She looked as if she weighed merely three pounds, so that's what the children called her. She grew up in Lion's Arch where she met the first Monk hero she ever saw.
