Jade is the young stepdaughter of the Grand Master Thuro Al'Baster of the Magnificent 7. She is the product of an affair by her mother Zandalee Killian and her mobster employer. When Zillion told her boss she was pregnant by him, he ended their relationship and a short while later was killed in the regular business of Arkem. Like her mother, Jade is quiet but remarkably bright. Believing she might be a latent talent, Thuro began teaching her magic and at the age of 5 gave her a small book of spells.
It was said in a prophecy that Jade would follow in Thuro’s footsteps and become a great and powerful mage.
