Yoncy Criid is the sister of Dalin Criid, the surrogate daughter of Tona Criid and biological daughter of Livy and Gol Kolea. Yoncy is looked after by the Tanith 1st's civilian entourage, and is only about 8 years old. She was a baby during the Vervunhive war.

The Vervunhive War Edit

During the Vervunhive War, Yoncy and Dalin were taken by Livy Kolea into the hive proper for shopping, when the transit station they were in was shelled. Yoncy and Dalin were protected by a pillar while Livy was killed by shrapnel, and Tona Criid rescued them. They lived out in the wastelands until they were helped by Caffran during the battle's final stages.

Yoncy and Dalin were taken along when Criid joined the Tanith 1st as part of the act of consolation.
