Umbra spent her youth traveling with Romano — her older brother and only remaining family — to earn what they could for their collective goal of settling somewhere they could call home.
When her brother found work as a hired hand for a high class family, Umbra served as the handmaiden and assistant for their daughter, Chia. Reserved in nature, Umbra did not expect to develop anything past cordial respect with the heiress — let alone a friendship — but she grew to appreciate Chia’s genuine warmth and company, and they became close.
Meanwhile, Umbra could see that Romano was also developing deeper feelings for Chia. While she cautioned her brother about breeching classes, Umbra did not discourage their development and courting. She eventually learned the two planned to wed against the wishes of Chia’s family. Despite her wariness for them both, Umbra could see their devotion was true, and lended her support to leave together.
While Romano and Chia took an extended honeymoon to travel, Umbra used the time to settling into their newly-purchased home, and enjoy their new sense of stability. But the moment came to a halt when Romano passed away abruptly; not only did Umbra have to mourn her brother, but she realized Chia was hurting too, in the middle of her pregnancy.
The two ladies were steadfast in supporting each other’s grief, and after the birth of her nephew, Umbra helped Chia raise Rosco together in their home. After planning out their new future, Umbra and Chia co-established a bed and breakfast for supplemental earnings. Umbra remains content offering this service to travelers, while staying in Chia’s company and looking out for their remaining family.
