Each High Priestess of Erqua must undergo an Emuratare. A rite of passage in which they must embark upon a dangerous journey to gain knowledge about the world of New Genesia. It is on one such journey, that Okira’s mother Morowa became pregnant with Okira. Okira was born with green eyes. A sign, her people believe, that she was a blessed child and would one day do great things. She grew up learning the ways of the High Priestess, and helping the people of her village.
Okira has always believed that her life was destined for a special purpose. One day she wakes up in a remote lab along with five other strangers, without any memory of how she got there or what happened to her. Upon returning to her home, she and her little sister are attacked by a beast. Okira manifests abilities that allow her to subdue and heal the beast. The incident is viewed by her people as a sign that Okira must also begin her High Priestess rite of passage.
