Redbones hails from one of the many nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes that live on the savage plateau of Saka. Always a feisty competitor, she quickly graduated into the ranks of the Rakabu, the tribal knights who ride into combat on the backs of fierce Gammalu (Deinonychus). She excelled, but being small even for a Pech, constantly felt the urge to prove herself against her larger brothers and sisters, which often got her into trouble. Eventually, when Pest, her unusually intelligent Gammalu companion killed another, she was asked to put him down. Instead, she abandoned her tribe to seek fortune in the wider world.

Though Saka boasts no cities and few settlements, she had traveled to the border trading post of Ah-Khulassa, and was always fascinated with the sights and sounds of civilization. Riding into a broader world, she seeks to explore it to the fullest, seeking fortune and fame however she can.
