Raised from childhood in Abbeystead by the Dames, Gillan never found a place either with the professed sisterhood or among the laywomen who sought refuge in the Abbey during the long wars with Alizon. Hardpressed by the forces of Alizon, the lords of High Hallack allied themselves with the Were-Riders, fierce sorcerer-warriors who were said to be able to change from men to frightening beasts in battle. The rewards they offered the Riders were brides who would accompany their warlock husbands back to the land of Arvon beyond the enchanted mountains. "Eager to find a new life away from the Abbey, Gillan gladly changed places with one of the chosen maidens. She then embarked on a wedding journey fraught with danger, for she had the gift of true sight that would not be blinded by the Riders' spells. The Were-Riders soon learned that she was of the witch stock of Estcarp and feared her. No longer a stranger among a well-meaning people, Gillan was now in peril of her life and of her soul. " .
