Wen-Ling is the ancestor of Cross, Kaya and Thorn and the founder of the House of Wen-Ling. She was a master Crystal Sorceress able to do many things with her powers, especially using Crystallomancy - which led her to become Chieftess Cleopatra's Advisor. However, she kept them hidden due to the fact that where she traveled, she heard of Mobians killing those with "gifts". With help from Cleopatra, Wen-Ling settled down in Veton where she and her family would be save due to Veton's changing location every month.
Her descendants use the seond part of her name, "Ling" as their surname.
