Janessa was born to an old and widespread noble family that has served the D’Stayn Dynasty for generations. As a youth, she sought out a hedonistic lifestyle, plying all manner of ignoble pleasures much to the shame of her family – though her experiences gave Janessa much insight in the galactic criminal underworld. Somewhere along the way, Janessa had an encounter (a sexual one according to rumors) with a traveling member of the enigmatic Eldar race, sparking her fascination with the mysterious inhumans.

When the disaster struck House D’Stayn, many of Janessa’s family were also killed or lost in the conflict. Janessa found herself rapidly moved through the ranks to serve as seneschal to her friend Morgan D’Stayn, who herself was suddenly thrust in the role of head of the Dynasty. Janessa was not one to be intimidated by challenges and threw herself into her new duties, determined to bring the D’Stayn Dynasty back to its former place of power and glory.
