Born into a colony on Terra, Ebony is the sole child of the ruling Magistrate. During her Vision of Wings (Vow) Ceremony, she was marked unwanted as a dark-born and placed into exile. She was released from isolation when she came of age to be cleansed. Escaping the ritual and fleeing Terra, Ebony made her way to the stars with a group of drifters. Afraid of what they might think of her, she hides her true form and tries her best to fit in while acting as the crew’s trade liaison.
