Role in the series
It's revealed that her hometown was overtaken by Mandrakes (legendary), as their leader, Magmatacus was looking to escape an underground lava prison of Mount Penance by triggering focal points, and one of them was located within her hometown, and hoped to use Sable Spirit to weaken their integrity and trigger the focal point there, but it was compromised thanks to Mistmane, and thus he sent the Mandrakes, as well as other mythical creatures, to reduce it back to where it was again, and Mistmane was unable to save it again before her disappearance.
