History: Veran traveled with her little brother Tyler out and away from home about eight years prior to the start of the main canon (Veran is about 10 and Tyler is about 6 in "I'll Carry You"). Veran is very reluctant to share details about her home life, though she has let on that they both traveled for the better part of a year, moving from small town to small town in a rust belt of Faradus. Neither she nor her brother know the name of their actual place of birth, saying that it was not really part of a town she could recognize. It is suggested that she may have run away with her brother due to something to do with her brother, specifically-- being able to work manual labor, such as milling and farming, is very important in the more barren parts of Faradus. Her behaviors suggest an unhappy household, given her anxiousness and proneness to flinching from sudden movement or loud noises.
She and her brother were seen once or twice before by Monty, who would travel to towns in the area to sell food and seed at discounted prices. However, he saw them in different towns each time in passing, suggesting they were without a home. The third time, he stopped to greet them after selling everything he had taken with him, including the crates used to ensure he had extra money. Upon the offer of a place to call home, Veran was very hesitant to take the offer, likely having been offered some things in the past that were too good to be true. She ended up taking the offer anyway, though had clued Monty in on Tyler's inability to walk well. What might have been a dealbreaker to someone else was not so, so Veran cautiously gave Monty the trust it took for him to move both children from a buildingside in Des Riva all the way to Candor. Monty had offered to take them both back to Des Riva during a stay at an inn before reaching Candor when it was very clear Veran was perhaps having second thoughts, though after some kind words and encouragement she decided to keep going-- he had not betrayed her trust and had carried them all the way, just like he said he would.
Upon reaching Candor and getting back to Monty's residence, they both were given their own rooms in the cabin-like farmhouse (complete with a bed, dresser, and small table each), shown around, and settled. Over the next few days, with the help of Beyle, they would receive clothing, school enrollment for after summer, and some simple chores to help the rest of the household. Monty also quickly fashioned a simple crutch for Tyler so that Veran would no longer need to act as his left leg.
While it took some adjusting to such a different lifestyle, especially with her cautious nature, she grew to very much enjoy it in Candor, at Monty's place, and with her strange family, going so far as to call it "home".
She is quite fond of Beyle and Ruun, though she is more withdrawn around most other people.
