Brilla is on the search for why some of her ancestors can no longer be summoned to aid her family. Normally, her culture would dismiss this as the spirits passing on in that they gave given all they could and that more powerful ancestors have taken their place. The concern is that the most powerful of her ancestors (the mythical 9th ring) can not be summoned and there can be no communing with them.

After contacting her father in the fourth ring with the help of her mother, he said that the attack he repelled had something to do with these missing grand ancestors. After confirming this with the elders, she was tasked with finding out what happened to these missing ancestors and to recover their essence. Not alone in the task, six others approaching adulthood were tasked with the same quest. For a reward, the elders would perform the ritual sacrifice of the victor while giving them the title of 'the Resplendent' and the elders would petition to the ancestors to place the victor in the 9th ring.
