History[edit | edit source]
Earth Exploration Committee[edit | edit source]
"Exploration. Settler. Pretty sure the baby can handle either mission, Alaric."
Cahan joined Alaric's Earth Exploration Committee to explore an uncharted section. However, her pregnancy prevented her from joining the rest. Which she was set to deliver this year. Her husband, Marozia opted to take her place while she and the baby remained in Nergal. Alaric reminded her this was not a settler mission but purely an exploration one. With Gul's interference on the matter, she was allowed to go with them. Marozia stayed in Nergal. Awaiting the return of her lover and soon-to-be born son.
Teleporting onto the recently discovered Earth, Cahan landed on a island nation of the North Atlantic (modern-day Ireland, Ballingarry, civil parish of South Tipperary). Taking upon the appearance of a Irish woman nearing the end of her pregnancy. The country was experiencing a severe famine during the Union with Britain. Witnessing the Young Irelander Rebellion of 1848. Astounded by Irish courage to seek independence from a greater power. Although her time here was limited. Getting contractions even in human form. Aboard the Transvaal, she gave birth to a son.

After returning Orlaithe learned Marozia was killed during the rovar occupation of Nergal. When given a look at her, she had cuts and weapon shots littered all over her body. Nearly gagging at the sight of her injuries endured by the occupation. She was unable to bury her husband in Nergal as a result of the civil war there. Having found out a war broke out between the gente-verdes and pami. She placed her newborn in the care of Crocus Nidada for the time being. Joining Gul Banu's settler-based group Rightful Sovereigns of Nergal to resist the pami occupation. Aside from her birth connection to the planet, Cahan purely participated in the conflict to bury her lover in their home. Something she felt would be best to honor in Marozia's name.
