Born to Vibia, the first wife of Marcus Lucretius who died in childbirth, Prima was raised mostly by Violea, who doted on her as if she were her own natural-born daughter (especially as Violea was never able to produce any children of her own from her marriage to Marcus).
After Violea’s Embrace, she was raised somewhat lackadaisically by Marcus’ third wife Sexta Lucretia Vibia by day, but Prima was still visited by the shade of her second mother, who promised to watch over her and ensure that she would have a happy future.
In the last several years, she has grown up quickly, and her hopes have come to fruition: Her second mother—the only one she knew for so many years—has, with the help of a good soldier of Rome, arranged for a politically sound and happy marriage to Lucius of the Marii, and she has already begun to give him children. Her latest pregnancy is slightly different, somehow more robust seeming since she and Lucius received blessings from the Underworld through Violea and Lucius’ uncle, Gaius; nonetheless, she has high hopes that she will continue to please her new husband with her upbringing and her ability to bring forth a family for the two of them.
Beatrix’s life is not without some strangeness, of course, being that the two who hold patronage over the combined families in the domus of the Marii are the ancestor spirits of the families, but Violea and Gaius are both beneficent. She has even heard whisperings that she may be able to help work for the safety and security of her family and Rome in other, more mystical ways . . . but has yet to know any details.
Nonetheless, she remains ever optimistic, and confident that both Lucius and his family, and her adoptive mother’s spirit, will protect her and the children.
