Prior to the events of the story, Chloe belonged to the Valens House, a great line of nobles whose existence is well-known throughout the world. When she was a child she had long, beautiful black hair. One rainy night, however, her parents were murdered before her by a masked bandit with a snake tattoo on his arm. Chloe tried to use her father's sword against him, but the masked bandit told her if she chose to attack that he would show her no mercy. Overpowered by fear, she was unable to avenge her parents, and so the masked bandit stole her father's sword and left.
