Olisa Kabaki was an 8 year-old ward of the state whose desire and enjoyment of going to school was cut short when teachers discovered that she had a mental disorder requiring medication to correct. Kabaki was kept under constant medication at a state-run hospital, but the medication made her dizzy and stupor us. She became frustrated and violent, unable to concentrate when medicated, and subject to hallucinations and seizures when clear-headed.
More recently, the Exemplars were being created worldwide, and Kabaki was called to discover the Ringed Ruby of Raggadorr and be transformed into Bedlam.
