Biography

Born Kakani Kani in Hyrstmill, her mother was a botanist who loved to read. Her father, an Order of Nald'thal Priest, made sure she was well-taught in Thaumaturgical arts at a young age, boasting a pure Mhachi bloodline from the survivors of the Flood. For most of her life, she trained hard to master her work with the hatchet and staff. A few years after the Fall of Ala Mhigo, she was contacted for a job on a ship for her abilities, accepting the great deal of gil and gifting it to her mother. Unknown to her until it was far too late, the job she was hired for involved kidnapping young Au Ra from Othard, and harvesting aetherial crystals in absurd quantities. By the time the slaving ship was back in Eorzean waters, they could only look on in terror as Bahamut raged across the lands, safely staying out as far as they could until they knew the Calamity had ended.
Her mother had used the funds to build a library, much of which was lost with the elderly botanist. Moving to Ul'dah to be closer to her father, Canny was told to take on a naming tradition, for both the sake of keeping her fathers name clean of her next duty, and to follow familial customs. Her new job was to act as a collector, gathering gil from nobles who hadn't been to the Ossuary recently, gifted armor and a mask, as well as her newest hatchet, a heavy axe to "help" her collect. After her father's natural death, it fell on her to continue the family, and she mothered a child, but left him to the Order to raise, incapable of raising him in a way she knew her father would approve of.
