Elaina came from an ancestry of sorcerers and mages within Elysia that called themselves the "Light of the Grand," who taught her arcane arts from a very young age. She was a talented individual who excelled fast, but resented the backward traditions and rules the conservative guild held. In time, she was able to manipulate energies that could subtly control the flow of time. Before Elaina came to adulthood, her parents perished fighting the northern pirates joining the war against them. Being an orphan under the mage guild's care, she had nothing left but to train even harder everyday to help her cope with her parents' death. When Elaina finally became of age, she bid goodbye to the guild and often took up mercenary contracts to join forces that eliminated threats to the kingdom. When Elysia came under attack from the gods, she was recruited by the royal court to eliminate Draegar.
