Cara Mason: Sword of Truth + Legend of the Seeker
I was taught strength and endurance. When I was awake I was beaten with an agiel. And when I tried to sleep the rats gnawed on my fingers and toes. Even when I slept in a ball they’d feast on my ears. The Mord-Sith gave me the opportunity to kill my tormentors. It took me some time to find the courage to learn to withstand the pain of the agiel, but in the end I killed every rat in that cell.
