Simone Devaleonne was born into a rich family, but life with her parents didn't remain peaceful for long. Due to her father cheating upon her mother, the two of them divorced with shared custody of Simone. Things were fine with this until she reached her teens and became a rather attractive young woman. Her father, having had an appetite for younger woman, eventually attempted to assault her, battering her when she fought back. It was soon after this, however, that Simone left home and ran away.
She lived on her streets doing what she could to survive, but due to seeing her struggling, a group of other teens then took her to their leader. They were all homeless kids, but a woman known as Madame Schmele, was the adult they all answered to. Taking pity and greed upon Simone, she taught Simone the art of burglary and theft. Simone found that she liked the thrill of such things, and reveled in the fact that she was good at it. But things didn't remain good. Instead, Simone and her friend Ally eventually left, due to the abuse of the band. They were homeless and living on the streets.
Desperation eventually drove them to become prostitutes. A bad client, however, changed Simone's opinion on such things, and she discovered that she enjoyed being a dominatrix and escort, due to her enjoyment of finally having control of something in her life. She met another client, however, and whilst dominating him, she heard him confess about a burglary of a local museum that he and his boys were going to pull. Temptation came and pulled at her and she found herself getting back into burglary.. but with a preference for rare and beautiful objects. Having a special bond with wildlife, and all canines, tame or wild, she used her gift to promote animal rights, and at times, assist in her burglaries.
One can only do so much before the flames get too hot, though, and she moved back to London when the heat got too hot after she stole a rare black jaguar that had been bought, to be shot and used as a trophy. She hadn't been there since she was but a little girl, but eventually became a socialite for promoting animal rights. At night, however, she had an itch she needed to satiate, and thus found herself at the Oubliette. The place was incredible, her own personal playground. She didn't feel at home, but this would do until she found somewhere else.
While there she met a man known as Bastien DeLocke, who calls her "Snow White" and "dove". She finds herself growing fond of his company as he teaches her about London during a night walk, but is unaware that he wasn't a human. He was but an unfortunate soul who caught, killed, slaughtered and used the limbs of felled victims to replace his own rotting body.
