Delia Moriah grew up as a religious girl. When she was eighteen she met a young man by the name of Christopher. She and Christopher fell in love and wanted to get married as soon as Delia graduated because she wanted to be married as a virgin. But one night, Delia and Christopher had a heated argument because Delia thought Christopher was having an affair. She left Christopher and found an equally appealing man who said his name was Obediah. Feeling betrayed by Christopher, she slept with Obediah. Weeks later, after Delia and Christopher had made amends, Delia discovered she was pregnant.
She told Christopher after three months but he left her for good. Delia was so heart broken, she searched for Obediah. When she did find him, he revealed that he was the god Thanatos. She was horrified that he lied to her and she ran away and hid. She spent the next five months in horror and shock. So angry and confused, Delia committed suicide. She jumped off a bridge into a rushing river but a hiker saw the whole thing. The hiker rescued Delia and rushed her to the hospital. The doctors were able to save the premature baby girl, but Delia was not so fortunate. With the baby not having a mother or father, she was put into child care.
After twelve years, the girl who had been named Delilah, ran away from home when her adoptive parents told her she was adopted. She got by on the streets with the money she had saved. She met three other run aways: Dorian, a quiet teenager, Sadie, a smart girl with asthma and Elliot, a short boy with a limp. They traveled to Hoboken where Delilah was told that her mother "lived". She looked through files, computer sites and several of phone books, but there was no Delia Moriah anywhere.
When she found one hospital record with Delilah's name on it, she was horrified. She found her mother's grave in a cemetery and broke down and cried. Suddenly, a flock of birds that were flying above, died in mid-air. A glowing red skull appeared above Delilah's head. Dorian, Sadie and Elliot bowed and revealed that Sam was the son of Melinoe, Sadie the daughter of Athena and Elliot was a satyr. Delilah was not exactly pleased that her friends lied to her, but they ventured to Camp.
After being at Camp for only a few days, she joined the Broken Covenant.
