Glory was born in Northern California. She was raised by her grandparents, who told her that her mother had died after giving birth. Her grandparents were fanatic fundamentalists, who gave the child the name of Glory-Be-Unto-God. As she grew, her hair changed from blond to pale blue, and her grandparents took this to be proof the she was a cursed child. When her wings began to appear, she used her fledgling glamour powers to hide them, fearing they would try to remove them.
Their house was located outside of a small town, on the edge of a deep woods. As a child, her grandparents told her to stay out of the forest, for it was the home of demons. Naturally, Glory took every opportunity she could to disobey them, and loved wandering in the forest, where she found no demons, but a host of lesser Fae, who seemed to delight in playing with the young changeling.
Aspect: Friends in Fae Places
When she was 15, Glory had had enough of the constant preaching and punishment, and decided to run away. She stopped in the wrong part of a small town, and wound up unconscious and kidnapped. She awoke tied up in a basement.
The shack she was trapped in was located on the edge of the Spring Court’s territory. Some of the Little Folk heard her and brought news of her predicament to the King, who offered Glory a bargain: her freedom in exchange for her service. Seeing little alternative, she agreed. He brought her to the heart of his court, and made her his Knight.
Aspect: Sword of Spring Breezes

Searching, she finds that Juliette was taken by Istaevan, the Lord of Silver Storms, a Winter Court noble, as part of a plan to control the Autumn Court. To save her friend, Glory must confront the Lord of Silver Storms, but can she succeed when she discovers the truth: that it is not Autumn, but Spring he seeks, and she herself is the key to his plan?
