Haze was one of Lora's two Blades during the Aegis War, with whom she shared a resonance with so strongly that the two bore notable resemblance to one another. She is first met in Torna ~ The Golden Country after travelling to Gormott alone to uncover the location of Lora's mother, who she learns is in Torigoth. Upon returning to Lora and Jin, Haze accompanies the group who have met Addam and Mythra to Torigoth, only to find that the village has been pillaged and burned down. They travel further and find the Torigoth Cemetery, in which one grave is decorated with a charm Lora made for her mother as a child.
The group are attacked by Ardainian troops including Brighid, who Haze uses her Blade ability to control others to subdue. Upon Hugo's intervention. the group travel to the Ardainian flagship while Lora and Haze stay behind to decorate the graves. Gort, a past antagonist of Lora's, ambushes the duo attempting to kill Lora and reclaim Jin's Core Crystal. Knowing Haze's power, Gort brings no Blades with him. They combat his group of mercenaries until Jin rushes to their aid, driving Gort off. Haze remains with the group as they travel to Auresco to stop Malos; she uses her power while Lora spars with Addam and Mythra to stop Mythra's Foresight, and she attempts to inhibit Malos while battling him in Sachsum Gardens although, as the Aegis, he is able to break free.
Haze, Lora, Jin, and Mikhail eventually part ways with Addam and Pyra after the destruction of the Kingdom of Torna. Upon Addam's request, Lora and the others travel to Spessia to notify Addam's militia to relocate to Leftheria. She assists Lora in fighting off Gort when he attacks them again. The group arrives at the militia's camp moments before Amalthus' attack on the region - Lora is killed in the battle, and Jin eats her heart to continue living as a Flesh Eater. Haze, separated from Lora in the chaos, returns to her Core Crystal. Her Core is eventually found by Amalthus, who reawakens her and gives her the new identity of Fan la Norne, Goddess of the Praetorium. He takes half of Haze's Core Crystal and becomes a Blade Eater, although Haze has no knowledge of this.
Mor Ardain and Temperantia
Five hundred years later, Fan meets Rex in the Abandoned Factory of the Empire of Mor Ardain after his party fights Patroka and Mikhail. She is able to stop Patroka from attacking them with her full power, and the two members of Torna escape on the Monoceros. Fan asks Rex to come and speak with Amalthus, and travels with the party to Indol.
Talking to Rex and Nia near the mural in the Sanctum, she mentions that the memories of her past life are missing. She later accompanies the party to Temperantia, where she uses her powers to weaken the Judicium Titan, allowing the party to board and fight Aeshma's Core in order to stop Jin. Fan attempts to slow Jin, as he is a Blade, but his status as a Flesh Eater allow him to overcome her power and he kills Fan by stabbing her through her Core Crystal, believing that this will free her from Amalthus.
Fan is given a state funeral after the Ruler's Congress in Indol - unheard of for a Blade, as upon death a Blade's body should return to ether rather than leaving a corpse. Mythra notes that Fan's Core Crystal was originally diamond shaped and that half of it appears to be missing, suggesting that someone may have stolen it. Much later Amalthus reveals that he took half of Fan's Core Crystal to add to his powers as a Driver of an Aegis; he uses her powers to control Mythra, and by extension Siren, and eventually to control the nation Titans to prevent the party and Torna from climbing the World Tree.

Torna ~ The Golden Country - Post-Battle Dialogue
|Haze||"Oh, Lady Lora, look. Your sleeve is starting to fray."|
|Lora||"Clothes get torn in battle. There's no way around it, really."|
|Haze||"We both know that when your whole outfit unravels, you'll just end up wanting to borrow mine."|
|Haze||"Blade combo, third stage!"|
|Minoth||"Why does that sound so familiar?"|
|Haze||"Master Aegaeon is a… finely sculpted Blade, isn't he?"|
|Lora||"He's got a very estable core, doesn't he? He must have incredible balance. And that form!"|
|Aegaeon||"I would… appreciate it if you could stop staring, now. You're making me blush."|
|Addam||"Oh, Haze! I've got a cracking ghost story for you."|
|Haze||"Y-you… want to tell it now?"|
|Addam||"Yeah! It's a real spine-tingler, Grandad once told me. Kept me up at night for days!"|
|Haze||"Ah no! Please keep it to yourself!"|
|Haze||"Excuse my idle curiosity, Lord Hugo, but… What is it like? Being an emperor, I mean."|
|Hugo||"Well, it certainly keeps me busy. My duties are too numerous to name."|
|Addam||"I imagine there's never a dull moment in His Imperial Majesty's life."|
|Aegaeon||"You look tired, Haze. Here. Just don't tell anyone."|
|Haze||"Are those sweets? Oh Aegaeon, how can I ever repay you?"|
|Addam||"Aegaeon! You scallywag."|
|Mythra||"Thanks for the rescue, Haze. You're nice."|
|Haze||"Oh, a thanks from Mythra? There's something you don't hear every day."|
|Mythra||"Wow. I take that back. Haze is the master of lowkey shade."|
|Haze||"Lord Hugo, you've sustained no cuts, I hope? No scrapes, no bruises?"|
|Hugo||"Thank you for your concern, Haze. You are very kind."|
|Brighid||"And why exactly are you staring at me, Your Majesty?"|
|Haze||"Lady Brighid, I'm in awe of your perfect skin. Could it be a side effect of those flames?"|
|Brighid||"Unfortunately, fire related beauty treatment hasn't really caught on. I can't imagine why."|
|Aegaeon||"Such beauty… Were Haze but not a Blade, she could easily become His Majesty's consort."|
|Haze||"Uh? What was that you said, Master Aegaeon?"|
|Condition: After Minoth joins|
|Lora||"I’m having such a wonderful time on this journey. Kind of sad to think it will be over one day."|
|Haze||"I’ll stay by your side no matter what, my Lady."|
|Jin||"Your movement is more accomplished than before, isn't it, Haze."|
|Haze||"Anyone could pick up a thing or two from watching you fight, Jin."|
|Jin||"I'm honoured, then."|
