Known Information


Melpomene is the third of nine daughters born to a vicomte of House Bretel, and she had a very proper noble education as is appropriate for a young woman of her background. When she turned eighteen, she married Georges d'Eresse, a wealthy young nobleman only a few years her senior who had survived losing a leg while fighting on the Camaeline border, and in civilian life gone on to make himself a small fortune at the gaming tables of Elua and Marsilikos. After struggling for a few years, plagued by miscarriage and stillbirth, she produced his heir, the weak and frail Georges the Younger. Not long after he was born her youngest sister fell ill from a wasting disease and quickly passed, and then her seventh sister died of a broken heart from losing the younger. Her second child, a daughter, lived only four months before passing mysteriously in her crib. Her fourth full-term pregnancy produced stillborn twins, and though her relationship with her husband was strained, they continue to keep trying. Meanwhile Georges's luck at the gaming tables seems to have turned, permanently, and what was a financially comfortable marriage is no longer so. But Melpomene has never given up her love of socialization and her enjoyment of frivolous and ladylike hobbies, from which she has derived so much consolation through the trials which plague her life.
