Elise is an unruly child who despises school, just like most children her age. Lord Aiden, knowing his headstrong daughter only too well, recounts her family's history to young Elise. Lord Aiden tells Elise of MacInnes's historical journey from Egypt, where they were expelled from the area from the time of Moses. Their travels took them to the far lands of Crete and Thrace, where they stayed for a brief period. The MacInnes settled down in Spain, but they were intrigued when they heard about a strange new place resembling the land from Moses's prophecy. Tales of a fascinating place with rolling lush green hills and no sign of poisonous creatures were learned from the market traders. These are the stories that shape Elise into the intelligent and strong leader she eventually grows to become.
