Lana-kai hails from the oasis settlement of Zakara in the Seasands Desert. The oasis was on an important trading route to the coastal desert city of Xilkaht, which is famed for its extravagant palaces, ancient mystery, and wonderful bazaars. When Lana-kai was reaching the end of adolescence, the oasis was overrun by marauders who lay waste to the small settlement of Zakara and slaughtered many of her friends and family. Lana-kai had just entered guard training, and used her manifestation of the wind to fly some of her people to safety. The survivors of Zakara fled to Xilkaht, vowing vengeance on the cruel marauders.
The settlement of Zakara had ensured the safe arrival of many wealthy tourists and traders to Xilkaht, and the survivors were looked after kindly. Taking pity on them, the Xilkaht people payed the way for the survivors of the oasis massacre to join an elite swordmage academy. The facility with which the Genasi took to swordmagery impressed even the aloof Eldarin instructors. After Lana-kai’s basic studies were completed, she was sent to roam the land, building her skills until the time a magic stone calls her back. Generally cheerful and outgoing, she falls asleep every night to the thought of taking revenge on those who killed her family and burned her home.
