You know that Eleni was found in a ruined town by Magnus Dunbar, and raised
as his daughter. You know that she is in actuality Leena, the last Biruni
Mage, who was thrown back in time by Xeno in order to stop the release of
Vandal Heart. But the tale doesn't stop there. Now, the whole story can

She didn't quite know what was going on. All she could hear was her
friends - - and surrogate family - - calling out her name frantically. The
creepy sorcerer named Xeno had just opened a rift in the space time
continuum. Now, she felt herself being pulled inside.
"Grandpa!" Leena screamed, "Help me!" But she knew that no one would
come. Her grandfather was dead, along with her whole village. A tear fell
down her face, the only thing that could stop those bad men was the sword
Vandal Heart. And without her, the last Biruni Mage, it would stay were it
was resting forever. Soon, the world went dark as the portal began to

Leena awoke in the middle of a field. It was a strange plane,
surrounded by lava on four sides. She didn't know where she was, only that
she was far from home.
"I've got to get back. Mr. Ash and his friends need my help," she
Suddenly, a group of Sparkies descended upon her. Leena knew that
she had to act fast. So she brought up the barrier her grandfather had
taught her. The spirits soon tired of trying to break through it, and left
the little girl alone.
Leena sighed. She had narrowly escaped death at the hands of those
monsters. The young girl decided to find a way back. It was the only way
to unseal Vandal Heart and avenge the deaths of her friends and family at
the hand of the Crimson Guard.
So she began to construct a magical circle like her grandfather had
taught her. Then, she stood at the center and began to chant, "Oh great
spirits here my plea. Open the way to my future, to the future of this
world. Send me back to the real world, the world where time flows true."
A portal began to open to the real world. Leena saw a town, ruined
by fire and battle. Bodies were lying all over the place, and blood was on
Leena's eyes opened wide. 'That's definitely it. It has to be the
village. I'm going home, and I can help Ash and his friends save the
She headed towards the portal. Instantly, it sucked her in. Leena
began to smile, she couldn't wait until she came back, and could tell Miss
Eleni and Mr. Ash about her adventure.
* * *
Leena found herself inside a burnt out house. She decided to go
outside and hope that Ash and the others would come back after leaving the
temple. Then, they could go back together.
Suddenly, Leena heard the sound of soldiers marching. Afraid that
the horrible Crimson Guard had returned, she hid behind a ruined wall.
When the young girl looked out, she saw not those Crimson Murderers, but a
group of young men in silver armor.
"Sir Dunbar," one man said, "I'm worried. What if some Imperial
Soldiers are here, just waiting to snipe us from behind?" He was carrying
a bow and had a quiver on his back.
"Ferdenan, don't complain. You know that Sir Dunbar can take care of
himself, and the rest of us if needed be," chided a silver haired Soldier.
The man who appeared to be the leader replied, "It's ok Dolan. Let
Ferdenan express his doubts. We have to be ready for the worst at all
times, and he has reminded us of the worst."
Leena wondered what was going on. They didn't appear to be the
Crimson Guard, but it wasn't Ash and his friends either. But the one
called Dolan looked just like an older man named Dolan who had been
accompanying that group. Could they be father and son?
Anyhow, she saw this group of interlopers as another enemy to her
village. Most likely, they were searching for whatever legacies of the
Biruni they could find and pilfer for themselves. Leena knew that she was
the only one who could defend their secrets.
She used a trick that the next door neighbor's son had taught her.
It involved making her voice much bigger and scarier than it actually was,
and give it an eerie tone to it. "Go back, or face a horrible death. The
ghosts of those who died here have been violated by their killers, and will
show no mercy to all who come here to their resting place."
"Sir Dunbar!" Ferdenan exclaimed, "It's a monster of some sort.
Either that or a ghost. No human being could ever have a voice that
"Stay calm Ferdenan, you know that all ghosts are Airmen. You can
easily shoot down any that try to attack us in one try," Dolan replied,
with a quiver in his voice.
Suddenly, they saw a shadow from behind the wall. Leena was using a
fire to make her shadow appear much bigger than it was, and project it onto
another wall. Hopefully, the soldiers would all go away once they saw her
and thought she was a monster.
Ferdenan yelled, "Demon, you will not kill any of us." He ran
forward, and shot an arrow over the wall. Leena was not hidden in the lee
of the wall, and was struck in the side.
The one called Sir Dunbar ran forward. When he looked behind the
wall, he saw the child lying there. He took her in his arms, and pulled
the arrow out of her side.
He took her back to his men. Ferdenan looked surprised. "I didn't
know she was a kid. Oh, gods, what have I done? I've murdered an innocent
"She's still breathing," Dunbar told his men, "We can get her to a
healer, and she'll be just fine. You don't have to worry Ferdenan, it was
"What will you do Sir Dunbar?" asked Dolan.
He answered, "I'll take her back with me. She can live at my house,
and I will raise her as my daughter. It's the least I can do for the poor
So Dunbar took Leena home. He turned her over to his personal
Healer, Mimi, who cleaned up the wound. The child was put in a bed, where
she slept through the night.

This is basically me trying to explain exactly how everything came to be.
They never tell you exactly how Leena escaped the other dimension, or how
she lost her memory. You could say she escaped with her magic, and the
stress of the portal caused her to lose her memory. But if she lost her
memory in the portal, she wouldn't remember her magic. Another sorcerer
could have helped her, but then he would have stayed with her when she left
the portal, and Magnus wouldn't have raised her. So here's how I think she
met him. And yes, that is a much younger Dolan with Magnus, they never
said exactly how long he'd served under the general, so it is possible.
