Concept and Details

Galina Sobol was born in Blackwater, Lesser Caecian to Mathieu and Illya. Her psychic scent manifested early and she was immediately tutored by the local altar Priestess in how to clean and care for an altar. When she turned eight, a young Priestess named Mercianna Arcos was allowed to perform her Birthright Ceremony as a test of her skill. Galina claimed a Red Jewel as her Birthright, handing Lady Arcos her first significant moment as a Priestess. Galina kept a correspondence with older Priestess after that, forming a lifelong friendship with the Sapphire Priestess.   

Galina was immediately swept into the politics of the Conclave as several Priestesses lobbied to mentor her. She was educated in reading, writing, and arithmetic but also in the various duties assigned to Priestesses in Dena Nehele. She was a good student who rarely let failure or setbacks stop her for very long. By the time of her Offering, Galina felt ready to capture the Black as her Jewel of Rank and place herself on the path to becoming a future High Priestess of Dena Nehele. Lady Arcos presided over her Offering to the Darkness, where she claimed the Ebon Gray. While it was not the Black that she hoped for, Galina knew that she could be High Priestess if she garnered the right support.

Returning to Lesser Caecian at twenty-five, she accepted a position as Court Priestess for Carmen Neascu, a Healer assigned to rule the District after the assassination of the previous Queen. Carmen and Galina worked well together from the start, and Galina gained further contacts and alliances among the Aristocracy. She supported Carmen’s initiatives in educating the populace and convinced several families to support the tithes necessary to fund Carmen’s projects. She viewed the Aristocracy as mostly benevolent when they understand how and where their tithes were used. Meanwhile, Galina worked to become close with other members of the Conclave to launch her bid to become High Priestess. Despite the friendships and relationships she'd cultivated, her youth was seen as an obstacle. Thirteen years passed in which married into the Aristocracy and adopted two children, while waiting for her chance to claim the position she desired. No one tried to assassinate Carmen during that time, a fact that Galina personally believes was due to her presence.

Rilandra Vlas ruined everything.

Lady Vlas stripped Carmen of her position without cause and gave the seat of Lesser Caecian to a Tacean. Then the Decimation struck Dena Nehele while Galina was enduring her moontime. Her husband died from shielding their children and much of Dena Nehele was in shambles from the loss of Jeweled Blood. Upon recovery, she attempted to call a vote to select a new High Priestess, but the Decimation found the Conclave unable to reach a consensus. Months later, the tiny town of Hunedoara was razed by the Eyriens of Askavi, killing three of her uncles in the carnage. Angry and terrified, Galina agreed with Lady Arcos's assessment that these events were Mother Night’s judgement against a Territory that had lost its way. When Mercianna suggested that Lady Vlas and the Territory Court needed to be reined in, Galina pledged to support the former's plans to return control and sanity to their homeland.
