Shy and quiet as a result of bullying, but has a bad temper and can scare people by zirs beauty
Jean-Marie Colbert was a wealthy lawyer living on the French Riviera, until he met a stunning model, Ami (Aphrodite) while working on a case between her and her manager, she claimed that he was keeping her from working in order to have her dependent on him. It was love at first site and soon after the lawsuit, he asked her out. At first after looking him over she gave an indignant "No". He, at first was angry but respected her opinion then about a week later she came knocking on his door in the middle of the night, begging to be let in, and he was just too shocked to say no. After that they lived together for a couple months, and then he noticed that she was pregnant. He of course, was delighted but she began crying and told him who she really was, and that after the baby was born she would have to leave him.
When the baby was born there was some confusion at first, but Jean-Marie named the baby Salome. Salome was a beautiful baby despite zirs "defect" in zirs father eyes. Zir spend most of childhood in the house and was given special tutors and aside from a few friends in the neighborhood was alone, but longed for the outside world.
So at 11, Salome's father gave in and let zir go to school with other children, by sending zir to an all-male boarding school in Switzerland. As great of an idea as it sounded at first for Salome, it was a nightmare. They teased and bullied Salome relentlessly making fun of zirs girlish features or pulling mean pranks. And at slowly zir started retreating inside and became withdrawn. Unlike when Salome was a kid, zir was a social bee that everyone loved.
And one day it was so bad that zir snapped, the boys had cornered Salome in the shower and assaulted zir, and when finding zirs secret, beat zir an inch within death. After being in the hospital for several weeks and sent back to the school, zir couldn't turn around without everyone snickering at zir. So one day, shortly after Salome's 13 birthday zir found a mysterious package that said "from, Mom" and it contained Chakram made of celestial bronze, which gave Salome an idea. Zir went to each of the rooms and slit the throats of the boys that had beat and violated zir, and put regular kitchen knives in their hands and left note about what they had done to Salome. Then zir left and called up her father telling him what had been done, demanding to know what the Chakram were and threatening him to give zir money or else. Once he gave zir the codes and told zir who Salome's mother really was, left, often living on the street but could buy anything zir wanted. And eventually, Salome went home and apologized to zir father and asked him to forgive zir, and after consideration and hearing the whole story he forgave Salome. Then a couple of months after zir was attacked by a hellhound, Salome was shaken by the experience but believed it a hallucination.
Salome's life was pretty uneventful for the next year except for getting signed with a modeling agency on zirs 13th birthday and teaching herself to use the Chakram, for the first time zirs life was looking up. But after a photo shoot, Salome was walking home, when out of nowhere a Telekhine attacked, Salome fought it and barely managed to fight it off after a few lucky swings. Zir them tried to go home and forget the whole incident, but a few months before zirs 14th birthday, a Fire-Breathing Horse attacked zir and yet again zir barely made it out. Eventually Salome's modeling career took zir to the US and zir was attacked at age 15 by a Stymphalian Birds. Salome became paranoid and it began to affect zirs work, and started not leaving the house, but one day a satyr came and offered to get Salome into Camp Half-Blood, and zir agreed and when with the satyr.
