Gabrielle was born and raised entirely within the Lunar Atoll. Because of the island's communal lifestyle, she never actually met her parents and grew up around children her age. Overall, she lived a sheltered life becoming highly knowledgeable in the magical arts.
When she turned 18, she became of age to go on a pilgrimage to bring back something of value. She journeyed to the mainland and heard of the Mask of Bara, an object of great magical power.
