Candle appears as a young novice at the Cloister of St. Glinda. She is tasked by the maunts to ease a dying man's passage into death. Using an instrument called the Domignion which is unique to Quadling people, she actually nurses Liir back to life but not before sleeping with him in his comatose state, which leads to her getting pregnant. After he wakes up, the pair hid at the Apple Press Farm thanks to some guidance from Mother Yackle. When soldiers come looking for Liir, Candle serves as a diversion in order to keep their daughter, Rain, safe, hoping that Liir would get there in time to save their child.
