Daphne grew up in a time when girls didn’t go to school or know how to read or write. At the age of 8 she was expected to work in a factory but when she refused she was punished with the cane. She hated her life and would often steal a book to teach herself to read and by the age of 16 she could read. Daphne was presented to a man her father deemed fit to be her husband. She hated everything about him. The engagement went ahead even though she said no.
When she refused to have sex with her fiancé he hit her and commanded her to get undressed, her blood started to boil and she felt sick. She heard the stories of her great-grandparents being vampires but never believed it. Her mother told her that it sometimes skips a generation. Suddenly the hatred of this man who was commanding her to do things she wasn’t ready for took its toll and all she remembers is seeing his body lying on the floor drained of blood. She stepped over his body without a care and left home.
She forged papers so she was able to work and created a story that her husband was killed in a war so no-one felt sorry for her being single. She moved every so often telling people she was 40 years old. She tried dating but never found a man that she liked enough to marry until she met Lawrence Knight. She fell madly in love and accepted his proposal until he hit her and then fled breaking their bond. She doesn’t think she can love again until she moves to Painswater Point.
