Orienne was born to a large family in Bedlam, to three sisters, two brothers, and two brother-sisters. His family was not rich by any stretch of the imagination, but because her father believed himself a duke, and her mother believed herself a countess, they acted like royalty and Bedlam, being a town of the insane, believed along with them. Hats came off to the Emberstorm family as they walked the street, and they supped on the “finest” fair the “master chefs” of Bedlam had to offer.
She was sixteen when Orienne realized that everyone around him was completely insane.
(Mostly) Sane, despite living in Bedlam, Orienne spent most of her days putting on a show. He knew she was not actually a noble, and, yet also knew that trying to convince others, and her family, of this would be a fool’s errand. So he acted the part of lord (and lady), as was treated as such. While she never fully believed the lie, he found the respect, the finery, and the power comforting, and would not have been terribly opposed to living like that the rest of her life.
During his time in Bedlam, Orienne grew to appreciate the power of Luck. When a falling brick landed next to her brother, when a carriage narrowly missed his father, even when she found a gold piece lying in the middle of the street, all were mostly attributable to random chance, and all events shapes hers or their life somehow—her brother passed out and had to be carried home, making Orienne and her siblings late for dinner, which got them scolded, which meant they were in a bad mood that night, which meant they did not sleep well, which lead to them oversleeping and missing breakfast. It was not always significant, but Orienne realized that random chance had a power of its own.
So, she began to worship Luck itself.
