Kana seems to be a regular elf from Khorvaire, at home in Sharn, or somewhere around.
Recently she entered the service of house Phiarlan or at least tried to.
Being an entertainer, she has great ambitions and making her name known can only be of advantage there.
While she specializes in singing, she also dabbles in diverse performances, knows how to keep good company and is fairly well schooled in different fields of knowledge.
Tall like most elves, but not quite as tall, she usualy wears heavy make-up, often colorful in ancient traditions, covering up a lot of her body (like by wearing long gloves, scarves, capes, hoods, etc.).
Yet she still manages to reveal enough to entice her audience.
The Hidden Truth:
Behind the facade and her make-up, Kana's skin is secretly purple.
She a drow from Xen'drik, belonging to the Umbragen.
Her superiors their sent her on a quest to search Sharn for a weapon or any hint which can help save them.
Of course she doesn't want either of that to be known, as not to get too much attention.
She tries to secretly gather knowledge and piece together as much as she can.
When the dragons devastated Xen'drik , the ancestors of the Umbragen fled into the depths of Khyber. They persisted under Xen'drik for a long time against many horrible monsters. Eventually they reached their current home, which is under the Ring of Storms.
In a desperate struggle to survive, these drow established a spiritual bond with a dark force known as the Umbra. The Umbra is a dark type of magic that the Umbragen learned from Qabalrin lore. The Qabalrin resided in the Ring of Storms before they were destroyed by a giant dragonshard. The Umbragen have been using the magic Umbra for a very long time now. They have been using it against many dangerous monsters and have gained more power over time as they bound themselves to the magic of the Umbra.
However, in the recent decades a daelkyr lord, Belashyrra, has created an army in the depths below Xen'drik. The Umbragen have been fighting a losing battle with the army of Belashyrra ever since. The army includes beholders, mind flayers, and other sorts of aberrations. Since even the Umbragen see that they are overmatched, they have sent many drow out from underground in order to find a weapon that will turn the tide in their war.
