Born to an Umbaran father - a member of the prestigious Rootai - and a Dathomirian Nightsister for her mother, Garnik was primed for greatness at a young age and taught to be a powerful Force Wielder by the Witches of Dathomir. Her father Avlis was a cold man who gave his love sparingly to the young girl, he sought to raise her as a noble politician, yet her mother Eev hoped she’d become a Nightsister. This was a constant disagreement between parents.
After Eev Verita had an affair, her father had her assassinated, which he revealed to her nonchalantly over dinner one evening. “Betrayal by your spouse in any form should be met with swift punishment. Man or woman. It doesn’t matter.” This tragedy stuck with Garnik for most of her adolescence, until she finally shook off the depression over her mother’s death and began to rise to power within the Umbaran Rootai and just when she was about to secure a seat on the Council, Alvis married her off to Edric Cortih, who had just rebranded himself as Sieger Ren.
To Garnik this was the ultimate betrayal. The infidelity of her mother could not hold a candle to the deception she felt from her father getting in the way of her career ambitions and what the Umbaran girl considered to be her noble right as a descendant of the Rootai.
Her marriage to Sieger Ren was a well kept secret, only adding to the mystique of the man who would rise to power as Supreme Leader of the Knights of Ren. While Garnik tried to create a livable marriage, she would never forget how she was forced to become a companion to someone who had the sovereignty she believed was hers. This tension eventually caused a rift in their marriage, and they began living separate lives, Garnik studying the Book of Shadows for years until her own omnipotence rivaled the Supreme Leader himself.
She now leads up the Bando Gora, unbeknownst to Sieger, yet who knows if they will be friend or foe to the Knights of Ren?
