Public Family History: Callisto was born to Dimitri Lykaios, a lucky Greek Sea Captain turned Patreon and Marquess Annette LaBelle, the daughter to a French aristocratic house. This marriage was allowed Dimitri to raise his stature in society while bringing his good fortune over to the LaBelle’s. Since the family traced lineage by Noblesse uterine, Dimitri took his wife’s name under her nobility.
Business was very good starting out and Dimitri was able to forge new connections that opened up possibilities for the family. Annette quickly had three children: Adonis, Brice, Juliette, and Callisto. She started their education as soon as possible so that they could marry into good families.
Callisto with her bothers and sisters, would often visit Versailles with their mother for special occasions. There she would play with the children.
Sadly, as emotions in France toward the bourgeoisie start to become more volatile, the LaBelle family decided to move to London. There they set up their main residence to conduct their trading business. Dimitri bought Rainham Hall from fellow Captain John Harle when Callisto was 7.
The children’s education was very strict, but they were able to find their way into the world to bring honor to their family. Adonis went to college in Cambridge, Brice entered the military, and Juliette gave her life to god to be a nun. This now made Callisto the main inheritor to the LaBelle title. Annette always knew deep down it would be her darling and beautiful Callisto who would carry on the dignity of the family.
Callisto and her mother still visit Versailles up until the revolution. After that they would only visit Paris to visit her mother’s friends or their family country home Château Saint-Sixte in Aulnois-sur-Seille, France.
Callisto not only spent time diligently learning how to be a perfect Marquess, but is also known to enjoy helping her father with his business.
Annette is also thrilled Callisto’s is so well skilled in her studies that she can also find time reading books, talking philosophy, gardening, and figuring out how things work. Due to her commitment to her duties, Callisto stayed home until she felt she would be ready for a husband. After turning 22, Callisto decided to put distractions to the side, and start dedicating herself to the search for a suitor. She can’t wait to meet you…
But that story really does sound odd doesn’t it…?
