Sonea used to be an average lower-class citizen of Kyralia, only a few steps higher than the Dwells, the slum-dwellers of the capital city of Imardin. During an incident involving the Magician's Guild, Sonea's magical potential was discovered, and her world changed dramatically, leaving behind her harsh life to become a Novice in the Guild. However, it is common knowledge that only those from the high classes are allowed into the Guild. Sonea is the only low-born Novice, a fact that makes her the perfect target for her classmates, in particular a boy named Regin. Yet Regin and his gang are nothing to Sonea compared to her other problem. Before joining the Guild, Sonea unwittingly discovered the High Lord Akkarin's secret. The Leader of the Guild practices the forbidden black magic, a fact Sonea and only two other Magicians are aware of.
