Blend wore a small stone around her neck which she had bought from an old desert merchant in Pan'potsun. She said it made it hard for people to focus on her. This ability to blend into her surroundings and go unnoticed had resulted in her name. She was unaware that it was a natural talent, not the stone that gave her those advantages.
After the events of the Gedderone Fête at Darujhistan, the Bridgeburners rejoined High Fist Dujek Onearm's now "renegade" army at Pale. Blend served as part of a Malazan patrol with Picker watching hillside trails and awaiting the delivery of ten thousand councils from Darujhistan.
Cadre mage Spindle led Blend, Detoran, Hedge, Picker, and Trotts into Caladan Brood's command tent to steal Fiddler and Hedge's old card table. Rigged to win card games using the Deck of Dragons, it had been lost as a spoil of war when the Bridgeburner camp in Mott Wood was overrun. Spindle and the squad soon put the table back into action to swindle their fellow soldiers. But the presence of a new and heretofore unknown Master of the Deck card caused the plan to backfire, lightening their own purses.
