Coached from infancy by her obnoxiously demanding grandmother, Babi, she has accentuated her bountiful natural gifts with uncompromising training, all to win the applause of the crowd. Now blooming into adulthood, Uda had begun to step out from her grandmother’s shadow, and as the star performer had started to take her place as a leader of the troupe.

When a Wyld Hunt burst into a cliff-top performance in a ruined amphitheatre the plucky young hero castigated them for disturbing the people’s revels. The dragonblooded of course would tolerate no such impudence from a mere mortal, but as an officer raised his daiklaive to strike, burning golden light erupted from her brow, and with a burst of solar strength she shattered the floor with a stomp of her foot, and dropped the hunters into an underground aqueduct.

As the cliffside began to collapse, an ancient complex hidden below was revealed and moments later destroyed as it fell into the sea. As one chamber was hit by the blazing sunlight after centuries of darkness, five radiant zephyrs erupted forth, and drawn to the brand upon her brow, slammed into Uda ,coalescing into golden bangles upon each limb and a delicate diadem.

Uncertain of what had occurred but terrified of the wrath of the dragonborn, the circus quickly packed and took a boat heading East towards the island of Palanquin
