Step-mother to Jessie and Lacey Fly. Lonely, determined wife who wants to get her daughter back after a kidnapping five years prior.

Aurinda’s role is to guide Jessie into the dangerous world of Breckon Bore. She wants a sidekick to join her on the journey but also prompts him to take chances and follow his dreams but approach the dangers with wisdom. She’s also the main reason we begin searching in the first place. She has knowledge of a resistance, skills to join the heist, and despises mermaids for their natural resources and The Clerics for their elitism and warmongering.
