Agrea is an embittered woman. Growing-up in Ilayson, the second daughter of a former officer of the Monasterion, Agrea always played second fiddle to her pious, well-behaved older sister, Suliga. Something about the Church always troubled Agrea, whether it was the way in which intelligent people could be bamboozled by mythology and ritual, or simply a frustration that her father favoured Suliga (who from an early age was destined for the priesthood), who can say? At fourteen, Agrea fled the family home and travelled beyond the confines of Ilayson, eventually arriving at Yemoril where she managed to enroll at the university to study medicine. She proved to be a bright student, with a natural gift for surgery. She also had a natural gift for partying and soon found herself with child to an unknown father. Maternalism was not an attribute possessed by Agrea and she considered the child to be a great burden on her burgeoning career as a doctor. When the child was only six-weeks old, Agrea abandoned him to the harsh weather brought by the Lady Dendriss and set off for Ilayson. After several years practicing as a doctor in the poorer areas of the city, she hit upon the idea of using the poor beggar children as a way to supplement her income; thus was the concept of ripping born.
