Gloriana Mayall was the prettiest of the two daughters. Her mother, despairing of ever making Ann in any way feminine, concentrated imparting her wide experience with men on Glory. As a child she was cossetted and spoilt, as a teenager she took her first steps towards her eventual career as a theatre designer, as an Art School student she learned how to supplement her income by dispensing perverted sex to perverted men.
Somewhere along the way she revealed enough of herself to be blackmailed, but she always held on to her familial scruples even in the deepest depths of self-loathing. So when Ann, the blacksmith, is in danger it is her sister Glory who races to her aid and takes the violence intended for Ann - which Glory sees as just punishment and, if she lives up to her reputation as a lucky black cat, might also mean some form of redemption for her own crimes.
