Elspeth's life was a rather simple one for most of her life. She grew up in a large herd, scattered into smaller family groups throughout an old mountain chain and living in the protected valleys that the small, weathered hills provided. Her father, Dougal, had become seriously injured in a raid the winter that Elspeth's mother, Tahlia, spent pregnant with her and as a result their small family group did not travel between the valleys as was the custom of the herd. Although she spent most of her life in that one valley, she was not prone to being restless - having a loving pair of parents and (when she was two years old) younger twin siblings to care for.

She was three when she met Tobias, a dark unicorn from one of the other valleys who had travelled, and while love at first sight was not an accurate description for the pair they did become fast friends. He annoyed her at first, always challenging her when she picked arguments. A scholar, Tobias was one of those in charge of preserving the history of the herd. With him, she travelled to the other valleys and their companionship grew into love.

Together, they welcomed a young filly that they named Liselotte, a timid but cheerful girl who loved to explore with her parents.

During her sixth year, early in the winter, their valley was raiding again just like they had been before she was born. Tobias defended his mate and daughter and died for it - the image of his black body and red blood standing in such stark contrast with the snow was one that would haunt Elspeth. Together with her daughter, she was taken captive by the raiders. In desperation, the night they were taken Elspeth tried to flee with her daughter but the filly fell into a river and they were forced to turn back to the group to find warmth. The cold had settled in, however, and Liselotte became sick and died just a few short weeks before the valleys grew warm once again with spring.

Mate and child dead, Elspeth’s depression lulled her into submission. She was a valuable captive, having knowledge about healing and herbs, and was traded around between herds and roaming bands.

Nearly a year after being taken, in the late autumn, Elspeth finally got another chance to escape and it was then that she found her way into Helovia - full of fear and uncertainty.
