Jella still finds it difficult to believe everything that’s happened to her especially how quickly it all transpired. Early in her life, she was a simple girl, no different than most others growing up in Ethengar. Three years ago, however, everything changed. Just before the date of her arranged wedding, Jella was kidnaped by Alathis Alzul, a wizard from Glantri. Alathis worked for a Glantrian-Ethengarian network which smuggled wizards out of Ethengar (where they are persecuted) and into Glantri (where they are revered). Observing Jella for several months convinced him that she had sorcerous talents. Alathis took the amazed girl to the Principality of Krondahar. Although Jella tried to escape, Alathis forced her to realize the magical power within her. Finally accepting her destiny, she began to learn the arts of sorcery. She still held a grudge against Alathis tor taking her from her homeland, though, so when given the freedom to leave, she did just that. Rather than heading back to Ethengar, however, she journeyed to Glantri City to learn more about the talents she possessed at the Great School of Magic. Jella still feels distrustful of Glantrians as a whole, but this suspicion likely will fade as she settles into her sorcererous talents. She loves her newfound abilities and thirsts to learn more about magic.
During her tenure as a student at the Great School of Magic Jella caught the eye of someone named the Headmaster. He summoned her to a place beneath the school and she found herself teleported to a strange new area called the Dweomercore. Here she was to be evaluated to learn the "hidden arts" as the Headmaster told her. Though during her stay at the Dweomercore she was treated more like a servant. After a time, the Headmaster informed her that she had failed in her studies and for her failures he baleful polymorphed her into a chicken. That was the last thing she remembered until being rescued by The West Side Six.
