Cadena grew up in Grandis as a member of the Nova royal family. When Nova warrior, Magnus, becomes a traitor to his race, he leads an army to invade Heliseum. The royal family is wiped out, except for sole survivor, Cadena. She is saved by the Royal Guard and raised by the Shadowdealers, a trade organization. Living in the sketchy backwater town of Savage Terminal, Cadena learns to fight. Her fighting tactics have a streetwise edge, and she excels at close combat. Cadena utilizes Thief equipment, and her main stat is Luck. She is skilled with the Chain, her primary weapon, and uses it to attack monsters and fling them to the ground, or to pull herself into close contact with an enemy. Her secondary weapon, a Warp Forge, aids her in battle.
