The man she was bodyguarding had left the Juntavas (a mafia-like group) and they came gunning for him. At the beginning of Agent of Change, she was on the run from the Juntavas when she met her future lifemate, Val Con yos'Phelium.
  • "She (Silain of The Bedel) had heard tales of the headwoman of the People of the Tree. She was a warrior so ferocious the Yxtrang revered her as a hero; a lover so skilled that she had captured the heart and hoard of a dragon; a woman who gave her word but rarely, and always kept her promises."[2]
