Blood and Honor
Originally from Kaeyl, Vancia was taught in the magical arts by her father. When Vancia’s biological parents were murdered in cold blood, Vancia took her baby sister Varena and retreated. They stowed away on a Kaeylite raiding ship headed for Echia. Nearly discovered, Vancia ran into the woods and kept running until they happened upon the MacLuirg homestead. The Lord and Lady of the homestead, not being able to children of their own, saw the girls has a heaven-sent and took them in and sheltered them for many years, hiding them from the Inquisitors.
