Runa lived with her husband, Mikkel and her son, Nils, on a farm in the far north of Mendaria. It was there that she first met Tarek. He arrived at the farm one day and asked if he could work for them. They agreed and found Tarek to be a hard worker and good with Nils. Then, a few months later, the farm was raided by bandits. Mikkel and Nils were murdered, but Runa survived due to Tarek’s intervention. After hunting down the surviving bandits, they travelled north to the Wildland village of Nabaya and eventually got married. A year later, Dagan was born. Runa is a member of Nabaya’s town council and she is the only person south of Northern Tarania who knows about Tarek’s past.
