Rain was born to a noble family as the youngest, with one older sister and two older brothers. Her family had always been marching to a slightly different beat then anyone else, and Rain only added to that. A dreamer with some rebellious ideas, Rain was the life of the party and despite being the weirdest, she was pretty popular even if no one really could understand how her mind worked. Her life was pretty great- she had just skipped a grade at Foxfire, had plenty of friends, a loving family that supported all of her crazy ideas.
Rain, however, felt frustrated with the fact that while she was living with everything she ever needed, others, like humans, were neglected. Despite prejudices thinning over the years, even the elves sometimes acted a bit too haughty, and Rain knew several teens who felt denied of the right to express and put into action their ideas.
So, at age 13, Rain started an unauthorized student newspaper at Foxfire. It contained anything and everything, and all students at Foxfire had the right to submit their writing, as long as Rain edited and approved it. A lot of things the Council probably wouldn’t have approved of were published- conspiracies, outrages over both small and big things, the range of different articles was big.
However, when the principal of Foxfire finally found out, Rain was in big trouble, and there were threats of being sent to Exillium. Rain didn’t care, however, she was providing the right of free speech to so many who felt uncomfortable with the idea that should’ve been normal.
Rain turned 14, and though things quieted a little, the newspaper continued, and while the principal felt willing to negotiate something that would make them both happy, Rain didn’t see why anything needed to be changed. Adding a supervisor wouldn’t change anything, as students had the right of free speech- which meant anything except things that were inappropriate and rudely targeted, could be published. Rain had made sure that everything published in the newspaper agreed to those terms, but the principal didn’t agree.
Rain manifested as a Guster during this time, to the delight of her family, which had several well-known Gusters. However, Rain was expelled from Foxfire soon after because of her insistence to continue the newspaper. After much discussion with the Council and Black Swan, she wasn’t sent to Exillium, merely to a small school in Mysterium. Under the strict order to stop spreading ‘un-facual ideas’, Rain was left alone.
Rain continued her work to promote free speech among teens, though tried to comply with the Council’s terms a bit more, even if she thought they didn’t make since. But Rain was a reasonable person, and she settled down a bit- just a bit, but was still the dreamer and popular weirdo. She was also happy to see that the Foxfire newspaper continued, though this time with a supervisor.
