Danu was barely 19 when she went out with a group of friends to shop for furniture with a few of her friends. After hours of wandering around the furniture store and her laying on every mattress she laid her eyes on and rejected them for what her friends considered stupid reasons they abandoned her to go to a club. As she sadly watched them go she was approached by a rather sleepy looking young gentleman of maybe 23 who suggested a store he knew of that had beds that felt like sleeping on a cloud and he even offered to take her to this store that night.
Danu was strangely excited at this idea and agreed on the spot leaving the store arm in arm with the young gentleman. After less then 2 hours of mattress testing with her new friends she had gotten him to agree to help her move into her apartment the next day. It was that night after lugging everything up three flights of stairs and moving it into the proper place that the two adults fell into bed together.
The next morning Danu woke to a note on her pillow explaining her new gentleman friend was infact the god Hypnos and she would be having one of his children soon. As well as some of the problems that she and her child could experience due to the child's demigod heritage. next to the note was a rather lovely opal ring that he asked her to give his child.
9 months later saw the birth of Orlaith and the court battle between her mother and her grandparents over custody. After a lot of mud slinging on her grandparents part they won custody of their granddaughter and took her to live in the country outside of Dublin in their manor home.
Orlaith grew up a privileged childhood even being sent to a rather exclusive private school run unknown to her grandparents by demigods who searched for young demigods to bring into the fold to protect them for as long as possible. She stayed at this school until just before her 15th birthday when one summer while on holiday with one of the teachers and a small group of her classmates they were attacked by a pack of hellhounds. As the teacher and a few of the older students fought against the monsters they screamed for the other students to run to the nearby pottery store.
After a long battle where more then one of her classmates lost their lives the teacher knew it was time for her to be told about camp and sent away for her own safety. He took the young red head home and explained everything to her grandparents before helping her to pack her bag and taking her on a plane trip to New York and Camp Half-Blood. When she arrived she was claimed by her father and found out the ring he had given her mother for her was infact a sword as well as a ring.
After a few years at camp Candy left with her then boyfriend to meet his family. Now almost a year later she has returned to camp alone again and single after losing her first love to a monster attack.
