Kirra Yamatji was born into the lower class. Her father was an assistant caretaker at the Sanctuary and her mother was a Mysterium worker but wasn't enough. On her free time, Kirra's mother was a teacher for young, pre-Foxfire Emissary children.
Tahnee Amarak was born into the upper class. Her mother was an emissary and her father was training to be an emissary. They both had no time for poor Tahnee, so, pre-Foxfire, she was taught by Mrs. Karni Yamatji, Kirra's mother. Kirra was twelve years old when her mother began to teach Tahnee, while Tahnee was seven. She'd been behind on some work that could possibly make Foxfire impossible, so her parents hired Karni.
Kirra and Tahnee became fast friends. Three years later, Tahnee aced the entrance test to Foxfire, thanks to Karni's teachings and Kirra's encouragement. Kirra was too late to go to Foxfire, so she became Tahnee's out-of-school best friend. Fifty years later, they fell in love.
Allyra was born into an upper-middle-class, seventy-eight years later. Because Tahnee was upper and Kirra was high lower, it leveled out. She got into Foxfire and was a popular, beautiful, smart, perfect child. She manifested as a descryer when she was fifteen, and everyone looked up to her even more. She'd gotten one of the rarest abilities! But oh, sweet Allyra was pushed into solitude. Near the end of Level Five, she'd begun reading peoples' potential at any possible time, against the descrying ethics that she'd been taught. She got caught at one point and was branded as a troublemaker throughout Foxfire. Her self-consciousness had taken over, so she cut all ties with her friends, enemies, everyone.
At age seventeen, she began to ease herself out of the isolation. She'd recently realized that she wasn't completely female. But what was she? She'd heard of transgender elves; it wasn't that rare. She soon realized that she might be nonbinary. So she used they/them pronouns for a week, but when someone mistook her for female, it didn't really make a difference. She soon decided that she was polygender: female and the entire nonbinary spectrum. Everything but male, she'd say. After coming out in Level Eight, she was a completely different person than she ever was before. She was extremely careful with her descrying ability, had a large group of friends, but only truly connected with a few of them.
After graduating, she became an Emissary. She was an apprentice to a descrying mentor for a time, and a decade later, she was one herself. By the age of three hundred and forty-eight, she was one of the most trusted descryers of the Lost Cities. Only a day after her Inception Date at age five hundred and ninety-five, she was appointed as a Councillor.
Councillor Allyra Yamatji was a well-known student at Foxfire, then a shadow, a friend, a teacher, and finally, the most prominent and prestigious occupation in the Lost Cities. A Councillor.
