She is a very fervent young woman, able to commune with the thousand gods, recognizing their presence by taste and scent. Rani is reluctant to go, haunted by guilt for her brother wanted to go, but was killed before he could and wanting to go about her own business, but the King convinces her. Then a letter arrives from the head of the exiled Glasswright's Guild, inviting her to come and take the test for the rank of master.

It also underscores another pilgrimage. That is the wistful journey Rani makes in the hopes that she will not just gain the level of Master Glasswright, but she will regain the love of the people she feels so guilty towards, who she once respected and loved.

It's made even more poignant by the fact that we know, right away, that the Guildmaster Parion hates her. From his perspective we can sort of see why. Even though we know she's innocent, he only knows that the woman he loved is dead, that the hands of his guild members have been mutilated, and they require special devices to give them the strength and pliability to work their craft. Devices that mysterious people will grant if he sends for her.
