Richard Ivestor was a fairly rich man, who owned a famous company. He loved books, writing, and spoke multiple languages to help him with his work. Whilst in New York, he met Mnemosyne. They started dating during the two weeks he was staying, and she quickly got pregnant. He left and returned to Colorado, but a few months later, Violet India Ivestor was left outside his door. He loved her dearly, and took her inside. He’d always been a bit of a player, never sure how to deal with kids. However, he turned out to be a great father to Violet.
Considering the fact he had so much money, Violet lived a privileged life. Brilliant clothes, any toy or electronic device she wanted. She had it all. Violet was a very spoilt child and would get upset if someone denied her something, and throw a hissy-fit. She excelled in classes and was fairly popular.
It was when she was 12 that she had her first monster attack. She was walking home from school, her father still at work. It was a relatively nice day out, and she had her defences down. A lampi suddenly attacked her, and she attempted to fight it off. A boy with goat legs jumped out and fought the lampi away, telling Violet to run away. She did so, thinking about the attack. She ran in and bolted the door of her home, waiting for her dad to return.
Richard had never known about Mnemosyne being a goddess, or Camp Half Blood. And Violet never told him about the attack. When she was 14, he sent her away to a boarding school. Again, like her previous school, she became very popular, and had a couple of crushes. One boy had a massive, almost scary crush on her. He constantly asked her out, with her rejecting him, saying she was too young to have a boyfriend.
With so many people around her, there were no monster attacks whilst at school, but two more whenever away from school. She’d taken to carrying weapons she’d managed to find, and maybe she stole them, from a museum. So she was fairly protected. The boy, called Kyle Bennet, still hadn’t given up, which started to scare and creep Violet out.
When she had turned 16, two days after her birthday, he grabbed her during break, trying to get her into a dark room. Slapping at him, he pulled at her hair. She swang her school bag at his head, making him loose grip. She kicked his chest, and then ran (she was rather lucky she was a fast runner). She got too her and some other girls dorm, and stayed in that room for as long as she was able without getting in trouble.
She didn’t see Kyle for a couple of weeks after that, in fact no one had. There were rumours he’d run away. A week after Violet got news that her father had been found dead, with a hand missing and a slit throat. They would attempt to find out who had killed him, but with no results. So, they buried him, inviting her to the funeral. She returned to school, attempting to continue with studies normally. Violet’s grades were still high, but she’d stopped talking as much.
Kyle suddenly returned, with no explanation as to where he had been. He pulled Violet aside, who attempted to kick him away. He told her he had killed her father, that’s how serious he was. She punched him, and ran away from him. She still had school, but to her safety was more important. She hid in a cupboard for twenty minutes, until he left that area, and ran to her dorm to get on a pair of jeans, a jacket and jumper, and packed the things that meant most to her, and the most important things. The weapons she’d stolen, a photo of her and her dad, and various other things. She stayed in her room for a little while, and then at night, snuck away and ran for it. After ages of running towards the closet town, she finally reached it and paid for a night at a motel. When asked for her name, she decided to fake it, in case Kyle chased after and asked about her. So, she used the name ‘Janet Metts’. So she went to sleep, and woke up the next morning. She’d had a dream from Mnemosyne, telling her to go to camp. She’d woken up with a map, as Mnemosyne couldn’t actually guide her herself. Taking the map, she bought a ticket for bus down too New York, and used the map to go the rest of the way. Finally finding camp, she got through the borders. However, she was still scared of Kyle and kept the fake name, using blue contacts, dying her hair blonde, and using certain makeup techniques to make her face slightly different. So, she kept the fascade up for two years, in which she had died, become a ghost and then a nymph, before deciding nothing could go wrong at all and she should reveal the real her, not knowing the boy who had stalked and attacked both her and her father was a demigod as well…
