Background

Life was never going to be easy for Eva. She was born with a large port wine birthmark that covered half of her face and neck, which marked her as different, and to some, cursed by God. Her parents were kind, however, and for the first several years of her life things were good. They were not well-off by any stretch of the imagination. But they were never hungry, and that was something. Her father was a laborer in Valencia, and her mother was a seamstress. Unfortunately, in the course of just a few months when she was but six years old, Eva's father died in an accident at work, and her mother died of the flux. Eva was orphaned with no family nearby to care for her. She was sent to a fosterage to be raised by the Church. But the fosterage was a terrible place, and Eva ran away.

Most six year olds in this situation would have died of starvation or the elements. But Eva was clever. She learned that on the street, her birthmark could be an advantage. The worse someone looked, the better the alms they got. And small as she was, there were places she could sleep, and hide, where others couldn't fit. It would be wrong to say that she thrived. But she did survive. Though that can't last forever. As a child, she escapes the notice of most of the people on the street. But she won't remain a child forever. Eventually she'll grow up, and then she'll find that there are few places for her to go, especially with her disfiguring birthmark - that is, if she survives the streets for that long.
