‘Faye sneaks out of her camp before sun rise and quietly darts through the tents, being careful not to alert the posted guards.
She reaches the cliff peak that leads down towards the ruins just as the sun begins to rise, the warm morning light energizes her as she unwraps a stolen morsel of cheese. “No going back now…,” she thinks to herself as she begins her descent into the untamed ruins.‘
Faye was born into one of many nomadic clans. She has been living with her grandma and grandpa, Apa & Ama, for 9 years ever since her parents disappeared during an archaeological expedition into the ruins. They taught her about the wonders of the ruins, the dangers of the dungeons below and showed her how to set up warding charms to protect herself from evil spirits.
Despite being only 12 years old, Faye is the rightful leader of the clan but can only lead once she competes the Ruin Gylder’s Rite. Until then, her loving grandparents have been taking care of all the day to day dealings of the clan. A few family friends have stuck around, hoping that their clan will prosper once again.
Her grandfather Apa can be very strict at times, and often worries whenever Faye isn't in the camp. Sneaking out in the middle of the night was nothing new for Faye as she would often go down to the ruins, drawn by its splendor and tugged by its incessant calling, one that only she could hear.
