Alula is one of two children residing in the Ruins, the other being her older brother, Calamus. She's a child with tan skin, long, mildly curly dark blue hair resembling a bird's face (eyes and beak) casting a shadow over the top half of her face, wide elliptical white eyes visible from the shadow. Two blue feathers stick out from above the beak. She wears a long shirt with patterns similar to that of a poncho and bears the symbol of the Sun. Much like other Bird People, her arms are covered with feathers, her hands appear to be gloved, and she has bird legs.
Alula is a cheerful young girl, often being very calm and positive in most situations as well as making many jokes, in contrast to her brother's timid and concerned nature.
Not much is known about her background except regarding her family. Her father, Rachis, was friends with the Author, but then became absent for unknown reasons. Calamus, Alula, and their mother lived in the ruins for a time. When their mother passed away, Calamus took the responsibility to look after Alula.
