The childhood memories of Saint-Germain, who is believed by some to have lived for thousands of years.
Born as a slave, she suffered frequent acts of violence and molestation for no given reason.
However, she was taught the alphabet at the amusement of one noble who frequently called her to his bed.
Ever since then she filled her empty heart with a desire for further knowledge.
Saint Germain next appeared in the high society of France, wearing the clothes of a man and carrying the air of a sophisticated individual well versed in fine arts and academics.
At some point this led to her being given the title of "Count."
Over time she amassed many followers and allies which gave her enough financial standing to pursue research into the "Philosopher's Stone" of alchemy.
