She escaped and met up with her twin at the age of twelve and together they lived in the wilderness for several years until Fiora was found scavenging by a Tayledras. She was taken in while Sabra, her twin, tried to find her. They were separated again till the age of seventeen, when they were reunited by the Star-Eyed in the Clan K'Guadia.

She is also hyper-sensitive to heat and the sun and is forced to form a small pocket of shade and winter around herself.
