Kurpitsa belongs to a rare and ancient species known as the Descended
, beings with a celestial origin. Long ago, she was one of the angelfolk who descended to aid in the cataclysmic Titan Wars
, a chapter of history nearly three millennia past.
During those fateful battles, Kurpitsa fought valiantly but suffered grave injuries that left her in a state of amnesia. The weight of her celestial powers and the intensity of the conflict caused her memories to dissipate like mist in the morning sun. When she finally emerged from her wounds, her celestial nature was still within her, but her past was a blank canvas, devoid of recollection. If the fragments of her celestial past were to be reawakened, she would once more ascend with golden wings that could emerge from her shoulder blades, carrying her through the skies with grace and splendour.
