Vernal was a member of the Branwen Tribe and held a certain degree of authority as two bandits stood at attention when she approached them.
Vernal was very loyal to Raven and even performed menial tasks for her, such as pouring tea for her guests.
Vernal was dismissive of Cinder, quick to show lack of interest in Cinder's ideas despite Cinder's apparent interest.
Vernal was one of Weiss Schnee's captors who attempted to ransom her out to her father. Despite the hostility inherent in their circumstances, Vernal stated she believed that Weiss would do well in the bandit tribe. Later on, the two fought each other at Haven Academy, and Vernal easily overpowered Weiss.
