Tiana is a timid Serra Angel artificer from Dominaria, who has become the guardian and chief engineer of the new Skyship Weatherlight as part of Jhoira's crew. She has a natural affinity with the ship and inherent knowledge of its workings.
Tiana was recently created as a Guardian Angel in the Cathedral of Serra, in answer to the prayers of mortals. She was specifically tasked by Lyra Dawnbringer with the protection of the Great Machine, an intricate irrigation system of lifts and engines that carried water from a reservoir up the side of a plateau to the town built atop it. However, the Great Machine was destroyed by the Cabal before she could set eye on it. She was only used as an errant angel afterward, and felt very useless.
On the Weatherlight
Because the Weatherlight is powered by a sacred relic of the Serran faith, a powerstone containing Serra's Realm, Tiana was appointed by the church to guard the recovery and rebuilding of the ship and to ensure that the relic would be properly venerated.
Once aboard, Tiana discovered that she enjoyed the practical work of keeping the Thran Engine running. She is adept at mending both machines and magical blessings, with a mere touch or whispered word. When the Weatherlight attacked the Cabal Stronghold, Tiana was in the midst of the fight and saved Liliana from an attack by Urgoros.
