Beliah is a student at Republic University whose time was mostly spent with the political and sociology students discussing revolution. Young, idealistic, and passionate, she admired Karin Midular but felt, as her friends did, that Maleatu Shakor should be leader.
When she discovered her mother was dating an Amarr she ran to her favorite hiding place, the roof of their building. Her surrogate Grandmother, Gran, tracked her down and explained how Beliah's mother was a Daughter of the Revolution and what that means. Beliah, who Gran calls 'Little Bird', left the roof with a more balanced view.
