From her birth, Lyssa's clan called her half-breed, more human than Katjie. They barred her from the sacred rites and forbade her from learning the wild magic. Undeterred, Lyssa taught herself the secrets of her ancestors; she learned how a crow's death warble could reveal a hidden path and how an enemy's blood could improve her blade. Having exhausted the depths of her clan's lore, she now wanders the land, crafting her own collection of secrets.
