Cashmere and Gloss were born twenty minutes apart, Cashmere being the elder. They grew up on a small vineyard owned by their parents, mostly cloistered from other

afterwards. This did not stop Cashmere and Gloss from having an extremely close relationship.

Woof was a grandfather to six girls, the youngest of whom turned nineteen the year he was picked a second time. As Enobaria's knife went into his back at the

children would live in a happier world than he did.
