Origin

With the quarantine of Callous Row finally lifted, Ciara Ní Éabha returns to her troubled city seeking out her last class of students where were dispersed to the camps. Finding only Viana, Ciara gives her graduating lesson before reconnecting with other residents to recruit her next crop of students. With the expectation that her ATLAS-funded but non-affiliated school would be allowed to continue, she acts as a normal citizen when in public and speaks well of her philanthropic benefactors.

Secretly, Ciara feels lost in a world that she cannot embrace. Only her obsession with magic, and the tiny stipend of her tutoring, keep her sane. Her love of the unknowable lead her astray and granted a renewed purpose. This drive is a dark energy that fulfills her corrupted need to educate and care for her charges. Now she serves a new purpose that taints her love of educating her beloved children. After being left for dead by her fellow mages, Ciara seeks retribution upon the denizens of the Undercity by turning them over to TALARIS for experimentation and expanding her Dark powers.

History

Careful to keep her growing delight in all things magic hidden, she does her best to present the perfect citizen to retain her tiny income with the constant worry that she will be discovered.
