Her parents were Unificationist missionaries in Kenyan when she was born to her African-American father and German mother. Lancy, a gifted writer who was fluent in several languages, learned at an early age how to move freely in various cultures. She attended schools in Kenya, the United States of America, Germany and Morocco. By the time she was 15 years old, she spoke German, English and French and had a basic knowledge of Arabic.
