HISTORY

During her time as a baby (approximately 1911/1912 to her knowledge) her grandmother rescued  her from the aftermath of the Wuchang Uprising in her native homeland of China.

As far as Ruby understands it, her family lived on an island and the Wuchang Uprising had occurred. The event itself didn’t displace her, rather it was the resulting changes in the country. The revolutionaries that had overthrown the Qing government eventually made their way to the islands her family lived at.

Her grandmother escaped the attack on her people that occurred during a volcanic eruption from a newly appearing island (there are 1,390 islands in that archipelago). Her grandmother arrived in San Diego 5 months later with Ruby as a very very small child.

Her grandmother’s efforts left her ill and she passed within two years. Ruby was adopted by a set of white parents with 4 children (two boys, two girls) and cared for Ruby as their own. They renamed her as a young child Ruby in order for her to fit in more. They felt it was sufficiently exotic without being truly too exotic.

Ruby grew up in a middle class household, won scholarships to Miskatonic University and discovered she had a knack for languages.

Ruby has never understood the tattoos on herself, she doesn’t know the meanings of them as they are not in any of the languages she speaks, fluently or not.

Ruby excelled in her masters degree as well and was hired by the Golden Candle, specifically by Luther Luckett to work for the group.
