The first-born daughter of a minor administrator, she was married to the son of one of her fathers superiors, a vile man who thoght she was the typical demure female.
Two weeks after the wedding, she found him with another MAN, the sepatation was given to save him the social embarassment.
Without sufficient capital, she ended up going to the church, and although(or maybe because) she was hard-headed , the inheiritor smiled on her and annoited her as a servant.
She has fallen in with a raggedy bunch, who although a bit unusual, do well as a team. They will be ultimately helpful to her eventual goal of returing home with renewed glory for herself, and a resurected hope for the Emipre she loves.
