Precious Pearl, often shortened to just Precious, was a sorcerer and the son of Laissa and the necromancer Papa. Laissa named him after a mythical sword. After his father succumbed to old age, Precious Pearl took up his research into necromancy and the creation of life, leading him to create numerous women who were genetically identical to Laissa and her sister, "Kitten" (likely the Lady) who later escaped. After a cell of Resurrectionists discovered Precious Pearl's granite castle deep within the Ghost Country and captured it, they forced him to breed more copies, one of whom they hoped would become the Port of Shadows, the woman who would give birth to the Dominator's reincarnation. One of the first of this wave of copies, if not the very first, was Tides Elba.

A few years after the Battle of Charm, forces of the Lady's Empire seized the granite castle from the Resurrectionists. The Imperial forces were led by Mischievous Rain, and included Whisper, Ankou, Shin, Baku, and the Black Company. Precious Pearl, Laissa, dozens of Tides Elba copies, servants, and six Resurrectionists were gathered in the main hall. There are no surviving records of what happened immediately after the castle's capture, but it is implied that with its objectives achieved, the Empire simply abandoned the castle and departed the Ghost Country. Decades after the "shriving of the Ghost Country", the castle and its spell dome still stood, but the structure itself remained uninhabited.
