Rambling Thoughts(tm) on Engvie
She was taught her skills by (@just-eyris-things) Yvrell. Instead of bonding more with Occam, she bonded with him. He taught her how to build things and she took that to new heights.
She needs her glasses to see in the distance. Testing something with the Karka gone awry, and she is now nearsighted.
When she was released into the wild, she wandered for a while. She eventually got conscripted to work for the Consortium to pay to get into a human engineering school.
During that time, she was sent to prospect Southsun Cove. After one disaster, she vanished on the island- to reappear later with the karma enraged and crazed.
Canach was sent to arrest her, the Secondborn a member of the Order and future Pact Spymaster. He made the arrest, and they saw the shield in the shadows.
She was devising an escape plan when Anise purchased her billet. She was ornery and stubborn, making her distain for the Countess clear from the first day.
She took the sword off a Mordrem to save (@salad-tales) Cor, during the events of season two. She heard a call. She tried to sneak off, but Canach wouldn't let her. He joined her in finding Nykai's egg.
Sadly, there wasn't time to acclimate to the egg nor bring him somewhere safe. She barely got anyone to believe her vision in time. Caithe still ran off with Aurene, though Trahearne was convinced not to send a fleet.
She was not equipped to safely carry the egg during Heart of Thorns. She had to trust someone. She chose Canach.
Much later, Tiachren gifted her the Shield of the Moon. He asked her to use it in defense of love, his eyes on Canach as he said it. She hadn't out it together until much later... that Tiachren knew she had fallen.
