Spirits of Atreia have existed since their world's formation. They are born into the essence of life and death known as Aether, flowing eternally within the cycle. Beings such as Ignuma only take form when they are called upon by a Spirit Master. In Ignuma's case, it was summoned to a battlefield on Earth. It could not locate the one who called it, but it did sense Spiritmaster capabilities in Arami and spent much of the combat assisting her. Even once the fight was over, it could feel that it was still bound somehow, but no master appeared. Bewildered, the spirit followed Arami back to the Dredgion. It lurked around for a few days before Arami gleefully demanded that it give itself a name.
Since then, Ignuma has sought the one who first summoned it. As most fire spirits live in the ever-flowing Aether of existence, it has limited understanding of time or the sanctity of life, but it has been forced to examine its slowly emerging identity. Being stuck in a physical form for so long, Ignuma longs for nothing more than to return to the Aether. Until its Spiritmaster dismisses it, however, it must remain, ever struggling to form an understanding of its new, human companions. It has joined the Masters, hoping that one of their missions might lead it to answers.
