Victoria Jones was born in Christcurch, England, but soon moved to St.Lô, France to persue a Career in teaching English in a French school. Being a daughter of Mnemosyne, she quickly learnt the French language. At the age of 25, Victoria had a stable life in the French village, when she met Ares. Well, indirectly. The two exchanged glances before she departed to go home, not thinking of the encounter again. It wasn't until a few days later when Ares spoke to her, introducing himself as Alistor Crest. The two clicked and before long, starting to date. After a few months, Victoria found herself to be pregnant, and went and informed Ares. At this point, Ares told her who he really was and what happened next. In response, Victoria told Ares to leave and never come back.
To ensure to herself she'd never see him again, Victoria moved to London to distance herself from him. In London, she gave birth to a son who she named Ryder, giving him the last name Crest-Jones, but soon dropped the Jones part. The two lived in a small flat on the edge of London, where Victoria taught French at a nearby senior school. For year the two were never disturbed by the Greek world and Victoria felt she was truly safe from it all.
However, when Ryder was 13, he and Victoria were playing catch with their dog in a nearby park when a hellhound that'd took the form of a Collie attacked him. Victoria being a demigoddess and had spent time at Camp, defeated the hellhound with ease. That night, whilst Ryder was sleeping, Ares called for Victoria for her to meet him down at the end of the road. Cautiously, she went and met him where he gave her twin daggers in the form of two earrings. He said nothing to her and walked away and being a demigod herself, she figured that it was her son's weapons.
Victoria waited a few years before adding Ryder's weapons into effect, getting both of his ears pierced. By that point she could feel that attacks were going to become more frequent the longer he stayed away from camp. However, she never trained him to use his weapons, instead she told him to stick close to her whenever he could. After a final attack by a harpy in which she intervened with, just after Ryder's 18 birthday, Victoria sent her son to Camp.
