Jocelyn met Alice's father, Marcus, 15 years prior. Back then she was a seamstress.
Marcus was just going through their town when he needed the Mantle of Illusion fixed, and so he went to Jocelyn, who was, back then, the greatest seamstress in the area.
Jocelyn asked Marcus to stay for the festival which Marcus agreed to. Then they fell in love.
Their love bloomed and Jocelyn got pregnant with Alice. But on the day after he told Marcus about the baby, Marcus left Jocelyn and never came back.
Jocelyn never knew why Marcus left. She also never loved another man again.
