In the beginning, she had it all. The sole daughter of a Russian Oligarch, private education, born and bred to be a perfect companion to a man of her Elders choosing. Hers was a charmed life, marked by an unshakable constancy to Family, House, and Tribe. At the age of 19, she was chosen to be the second wife to a widowed Scion of House Crescent Moon with a now-motherless newborn daughter, a role which she took to as if it were the most natural thing in the world, and quickly grew to love a husband who was much her senior.

Despite her genial nature and desire to find her place within her new family, she was rejected by the Elder's older children who felt that she had encroached upon their father before their mother's corpse was even cold. Isolated and alone, Dezha poured her heart into raising her infant step-daughter as though she were her own - in eager anticipation for the day that she, too, would bear more children - as well as supporting her husband politically in any way she could.

However, that was not meant to be. In close to twenty years of marriage, Dezha's marriage proved fruitless and her usefulness was dwindling and it began to put a wedge between Dezha and Victor. Divorce was never considered an option until tragedy struck: Dezha was attacked by an enemy of House Crescent Moon and was infected by the Wyld Plague, becoming one of The Bitten.

Afterward, it was only a matter of time and diplomacy before she was set aside as being unfit to be wed to a scion of House Crescent Moon.

Once nothing more than than a powerless bystander, the threads of fate that were pulled altered the tapestry of Dezha's life and transformed her into a force to be reckoned with. Woe be unto those who dare to come against the future King, for they will have to make it through his former consort first.
