She was born in the Southern Isles, the youngest of three sisters and one elder brother. She grew up a merchant girl, often working to bring in new passerby patrons to buy items in her fathers shop or to help get more items to sell in said shop. As she grew up, they eventually left the isles and temporarily set up in a small town in southern Marin, where they ran a general store and a tavern that they called the Tradewinds, but then as things changed, they moved north to Racksal and made their place in their much larger tavern, the Crosswinds.
