Fansa was abandoned by her elven mother and grew up with a pair of married rangers. One day, however, she tired of their preachings and killed them and stole all their valuables, which she sold. With the money, she enrolled in a wizard school.
Later, she joined the Shadow Thieves, where she rose to the status of Cloakmaster.
Fansa was very self-reliant and expected that all her underlings acted the same. She had only a minimal relationship with other local Cloakmasters.
