Guinevère was born the daughter of a small town blacksmith and a maid in a knight's house hold. When her mother died they moved to another small town where her father would be the only blacksmith, thus giving them more income. Fate continued to show favor to others when her brother left town to seek adventure and was never heard from again. Later, her father would be killed when he was accused of magic that he did not use. And, as if the young Guinevère did not have enough of reason to loose her once outwardly happy persona; war came. Not in the form of great battles, but in the form of a war lord named Helios.
He raided towns and killed the weak, forcing the strong to serve him. Guinevère was spared for her beauty, and eventually Helios--who was charmed by the willingness she pretended to save her life--married her. Though, Guinevère also knew it might have had something to do with the baby she would have given him. He wanted a son. She wanted out of this life. In an escape attempt she was caught in a raid once again and she lost the baby before it could be born.
It's been three years since that night, and still Guinevère takes measures to assure that she will not give him any child. Herbs that will make sure no seed of his will give him that power over her once again. Bitter, but silent in her hate, she is trapped in this life. Wishing him dead. Helios keeps guard on her now. Both to make sure she is safe now that he is aiding Morgana in war, and to make sure she does not disappear. Helios, having grown fond of his wife and the idea of a child, waits for the day she gives him one. Guinevère, having grown to hate him, waits for the day he rots.
