She is actually from Sarepta herself and only applied for the HGA's admittance test to have an excuse to travel to Utica and stay there upon admittance. She didn't make the cut for the Tribute (didn't want to either), so she joined Horsearchery under Princess Aurelia, learning from the Princess more then just how to ride a horse and shoot a bow at the same time, all to be close to Mahmut.
