Being born into a luxurious life, Ineyo hasn’t had too many struggles in her life. The hardest ones had been when her own stubborn side has clashed with her father Tadashi’s equally stubborn side. From a young age she was trained into a proper lady, and as soon as her healing capabilities were discovered she was put into training for this as well. Her teachers soon realized she had an almost uncanny ability to learn fast, and that she had a great love for helping people. Often to her father’s annoyance as she would invite poor hungry people home for dinner from time to time. As she grew up and understood how her father felt about it, she resorted to sneaking food out, instead of people in.
As she got older, she started learning more things, taking a special interest in massage to complement her healing skill. Learning how to use it to help people without having to resort to aether was something she had great fondness for. Due to her frequent trips outside the house, her mother resorted to hiring someone to be her guard. Not because she thought badly about everyone, but she was not about to take any chances with her only daughter. That way Itsuki came into her life when she was 20. Over the years the two have become good friends, and even on his off days, he could often be found keeping her company.
On one of her many trips into the city she literally stumbled across Galgan. Fascinated with his inventions and the man, she managed to coax her father into getting interested (not that it took much, as her father was quite fond of inventions that could make him more money) and eventually hiring him as his personal inventor.
Ineyo started to spend most of her time with Galgan, at first thinking he was Raen like her, but the way he talked, and some of his ideas seemed very strange for her kind. It was only when she snuck out one evening to see him that she learned that the person she had fallen in love with was actually Xaela. To be able to blend in he had been coloring his black scales the golden color that Raen ones had. She was shocked and worried when she found out. She knew her father well enough that he would not accept him around his daughter, he already didn’t like that she spent so much time with him. For a while though, they managed to keep the truth hidden from her father (with good help from her mother) but in the end he found out. In a desperate attempt to split the two, and get rid of Galgan he came up with an offer that was too good to refuse. He simply gave him the option of getting fired and expelled from the city, or travel to Eorzea to learn of new inventions to send back for his regular pay.
Needless to say, this did not go down well with Ineyo. Unlike what her father had thought (apart from a long harshly worded fight with plenty of shouting) she left her home only days after braving her fear of water to be with the one she loved. To keep her only daughter safe, her mother sent Itsuki after her to accompany her on her travels. After (at least in her mind) a horrible boat ride, she found herself in Eorzea, where a new life could begin."
