Found out that in the first age, Ashera was known as Kan-Hur, and was well known for defeating the Fae.

Read about an organization called Five Shade Association. So far this information has proven useless

In the first age, Dancing Rain was a Hierophant of the Solar Deliberative for a period of time well before the usurpation. She was a member of an extremely powerful and influential Circle comprised of the greatest warlords and sorcerers in creation.

Laquen Quen, Keeper of the Secrets of the Solar Circle became Mask of Winters

Alabaster received a "gift" from a death knight. It was a sphere made of what seemed an unknown metal. I studied it. I could tell it was a container, and that it's creation involved necromancy. Later a... young girl emerged. She was exalted, but twisted, her caste mark a bloody parody of a Solar mark. She seemed innocent, and, to all appearance, could only speak Old Realm Dialect. She did not appear to be evil. Later she returned to the sphere, forming it like a caterpillar forms a cocoon. This time, however, the touch of the sphere causes strong sexual feelings and images. My hypothesis is that she is granted these feelings as a reward to insure that she returns to the sphere. It is my belief that she is a sort of... probe, gathering information, and that when she returns to the sphere the information is collected, and she is rewarded. It is interesting that sexual gratification is used as her reward. Since she seems to be trained to respond to this stimuli, it may be possible to turn her to our cause using the same. Certainly we should be able to at least delay her desire to return to the sphere, hopefully until we can break her of the desire, or eliminate the sphere as a possibility. If she could be wrested away from them, it would be an incredible situation. Perhaps through her, we can discover ways to free the Solar Souls that have succumbed to evil. Alabaster and I went to visit an ancient spirit who resides in Chiaroscuro. She suggested we take Seven Desires with us when we visit Nexus for the Tournament. It seems a reckless and dangerous plan, but if we can gain her loyalty, it would most definitely be worth it. Imagine if it became known that Abyssals could be returned to the light...

The Circle turned it's eyes toward the coastal kingdom of Alom Vilag, which was a Guild Stronghold. Alabaster in particular seems to have a grudge against the Guild, and Rain has to agree that the Guild is responsible for much of the suffering throughout civilization, and so she gave him her complete support in the venture. It was her hope, among other things, that a sizable amount of valuable cargo could be taken as well, helping to finance the massive army that still sat outside the walls of Chiaroscuro. She had no idea what Alabaster was worth, but such expenses almost had to be eating into his coffers. As it turned out there was no siege. Rumor of the approaching Anathema, along with some of the more spectacular antics by some of her companions, caused the standing army to route. When order was restored, however, and the opposing general retrieved, it became evident to Rain that the man, Known as Vellium Ruphus, was little older then Rain herself, and far less experienced in the world. He had been placed in the lead of the army by his own father, who had sacrificed him as part of a ploy to move the bulk of the goods out from the city. Rain became furious that his own father would use him in this way. Her anger gave way to compassion, and she has taken him under her wing, vowing to make a man out of him. Rain has made a silent promise to confront the father, and see justice carried out in this case. Rain has begun Vellum's training by putting him in the charge of....

Accidentally drawn into a necromantic sphere with the abyssal Slave to Seven Desires, Rain emerged with the Abyssal Charm Irresistible Succubus Style, and Intimate knowledge of Slave to Seven Desires.

Rain has journeyed to Nexus to participate in a martial tournament, with one of the prizes being a warstrider once owned by Alabaster in the first age. Her true reason to enter is to find capable female fighters for her special elite force. While shopping in the marketplace, Rain's Sorcerer Sight has revealed some odd things. Most of the people were essence users, and there is something decidedly odd about the Emissary, who did not appear to her sight to be a real entity.

August leaves + First MA + reflex sidestep + leaping + SSE. it's a good "i'm under attack charm without beign too expensive"

vidictive concubine + lethal paper + first MA = whatever defense you want. On the 2nd one, go ahead and tag on the big three dodge charms, RST, LDM, and SSE.
