Halanna arrived at the Harper Hall in the year 398 of the Second Long Interval (2455 AL) to study singing. At the time, she was an extremely spoiled young woman, the daughter of a minor Holder in Ista. The Harper Hall taught her discipline, as well as how to use her voice better. She later left the Harper Hall to raise a family, despite Petiron's request that she remain in the Hall. Later, Robinton, too, would ask her to return to the Hall. She did remain grateful to the Hall for putting some sense in her head.
She was the youngest child, and only daughter, of Holder Hallibran. Her mother died giving birth to her. She had three brothers, Brahil, Landon, and Brosil.
Halanna took a disliking to Robinton, though in later life, a friendship of sorts developed between the two.
