Tempest Riddle, a traveling bard was born Isanna Re'lvax to a human father of the town of Solvana and an elven mother from the Sky elves' homeland in high mountain nearby Brekskand.

She was kidnapped as a child by Marius and Magda Blaze, owners of the Spindling Carnival. For years, she was trained among this mostly kidnapped family and was nearlyfinished with her training before her dear friend, an older man named Caius gave her an escape.

He handed her Magda's glass eye and the key to her freedom and she ran off, promising to come back and let them all go free. She ran as Caius told her, to a man named Father Temperence, where she found shelter and protection and learned about the secretive true Church of Light.
