Ilianna’s grandfather was one of the orginial members of the formed Crimson Guard after the battle of Seth Kar. Now in his twighlight years, the elder has taken to training his granddaughter to be the best. He also serves on the high council but in a limited fashion. Her uncle serves on the Lower Council.
Ilianna’s history is closely tied to the tribulations in the Crimson Guard. Both her parents perished in the Betray of the Fifth Kingdom battle and her Eldarin city has refused to send any more recruits up until her.
With the disbanding of the Guard, she has set off with fellow member Luna to try and redeem the guard and herself.
