Amharia Nigisti was a Rovalian orphan raised in the city of Roval. When Chaos attacked her homeland, she was the only member of her orphanage to survive by hiding in a cellar for two whole days. She was saved by Vince when the Eclipse Expedition arrived to aid them, and subsequently helped Vince navigate in Rovaltinny.
Amharia was an illegitimate child of the Rovalian king, from an affair with a lowly servant. When the king found out about Amharia's existence, he placed her in an orphanage to be raised without the knowledge of her royal blood. During the fall of Roval and the consequent massacre of the populace, Amharia hid in a cellar within the orphanage and directly avoided the evacuation orders, which was in fact lucky as the evacuees were held up among the other fleeing refugees and several were killed by the incoming Chaos forces, while the remainder were captured to be mutated into proto-Eclipsors.
