Born flawed by a scarlet mote in her left eye and given an ill-luck name, Phèdre was sold into indenture at Cereus House when her parents, traveling merchants, ran out of funds. Her flaw and her rebellious nature made others certain that she would amount to very little, until Anafiel Delaunay recognized her as an anguissette, one who derives pleasure from pain. It is said that the gods use their chosen hard - an understatement for Phèdre, chosen by Kushiel, the punisher. Beginning in the book Kushiel's Dart, Phèdre's adventures would take her across the world, through wars, conspiracies, violence and love to become the most desired courtesan in all of Terre d'Ange and beyond.
But who is she?
