What is known is that she hails from Midori, a Kingdom allied with Ironahrt due mostly in part to the Kingdoms' shared history in the Ultima Knights and their roles in fending off the Dark God Drasternius. The alliance stems only to military support and little more, as Midori is more traditional in its approach and has no need for trade with a more technologically advanced Kingdom like Ironhart.
