Clara Roderikson lived within a district of Rainsomore on the right side of the wall. Discovering the truth about her city, Clara must find the Creator of 'them' - the dark, frightening monsters that fed on the Doves - for her to protect her family. To do that, she needed to become a Lovely to search for answers. Every three years the Talent Trials gave the Doves a chance to become a Lovely and move to the left and safer side of the wall. With the judges only selecting ten winners out of thousands to move to the City of Jewels, Clara's chances at succeeding appeared impossible.

Edgar Roald Wilhelm IV, prince of the Lovelies, vowed to dispose of the filth within his kingdom that fought to oppose his righteous quest for vengeance. Tasked to stop the Doves' Revolt, he aimed to gain his father's approval on tearing down the wall. If the Doves' resistance surrendered peacefully, he would succeed, but to do that, he must infiltrate the Doves to meet with their leader. By selecting a woman from the Talent Trials to marry him in name only, she could teach him how to look and act like a Dove. Once he finished using her, they would go their separate ways.
