Although, yes, she was a former Ebon. I hope this doesn't come as a surprise to you, though.
As for your alien question>Q: i assume the fossil record and evolutionary history of hominids and humanity is just each planet's conforming to the human template created by the gods in the context of KSBD, but each world presumably has their own vast universe beyond them- is it even remotely possible for alien or non -human sentient life to evolve? i'm guessing probably not, or if it did they wouldn't have the same strength of soul or whatever as us good ol talking apes>A: Each world in the Wheel is like a story being told by the gods. Some stories have giant, expansive universes, like ours. Some are just a single world, with no limits or boundaries. Some are worlds are flat and held up on the back of a turtle, or moebius strips. Some are an ocean that has no bottom.>Theoretically, the only life that exists in creation comes directly from the Flame Immortal. Man exists as directly from God’s image, so in a sense, creationism is real in the KSBD universe. But who knows what God or Gods created our Earth? Maybe the story they’re telling is subtle and different.>I’ve mentioned this in the monthly patreon hangouts, but Allison isn’t actually from our Earth, canonically. She is from an Earth almost exactly like ours, except Australia doesn’t exist.
So if aliens exist, they wouldn't have a fire like aliens, servants, angels, or devils. Perhaps they're like animals and only made from the "heat" given off by the fire, in which case, they'd just disappear in the void.>Q: Are there other races born from black fire, other than humans and devils? Do animals have souls at all, and if yes, would they be black?>A: Animals were made by the Beast Headed God from the effervescent heat of the Flame (and not the flame itself), so they do have souls of a kind, but they can’t exist in the void since their souls are too weak.
