Dawn and her best friend Lavender grew up together. Their parents were both of wealthy descent and were always hanging out together. They were privately schooled, but Dawn didn't let the fortune get to her head. She never really felt like she belonged amongst them so she didn't have very many friends growing up. Luckily Lavender was there for her.
When she turned 18, Dawn's parents wanted her to start finding a partner. Someone of quality and wealth as well. They Suggested a Young male Buck named Dusk. Dusk seemed to have it all. The looks, the skill, the muscle, and wealth but behind closed doors he would hurt and belittle her. All she knew was that she wanted out of that. And her parents thought she was making it all up as an excuse to stay single. She was okay alone.
By the time she met Emerald and the others she had already become very independent and confident. She hated being rejected by Emerald saying she would only get in the way, so she works hard to be part of their team. When she finds one of the 6 Relics, The heart of Healing, She is able to heal, attack, and surround herself and allies in bubbles created by the gem. She eventually falls for Bosko, and although she usually isn't insecure or jealous, she does fear losing him on their adventure to Raveryn.
