Allem was a young girl from the Age of Averone. She, along with the other children of Averone, was being educated in D'ni language and culture by Marrim during the time that Atrus and his companions worked to restore the D'ni civilization. Allem had expressed her desire to help Marrim with the restoration effort when she was older, but she likely never got that chance, as the restoration was abandoned only months later after her lessons began.
