Abeth is the daughter of a landless knight from the county of York who traded her as a baby to the Fairies of the Summer Court for the gift of his wife becoming pregnant with a son, whom he could train to take over his title. Appreciating irony, the fairies in turn raised and trained Abeth in the combat skills her father intended to teach is son before releasing her back into the world. The son was totally incompetent with knightly weapons.

Arriving in York with little understanding of the real world, Abeth wandered and make a living selling her sword until an innkeeper who disapproved of her unladylike behavior told her that she should go guard a wizards convenient where they keep unnatural people like her. Taking the insult as good advice, Abeth made her way to Coventus Muri and offered her services.

Over the few years she was there, she served proudly in a guard that appreciated her and become good friends with the familiar looking fairy-blooded Shona. When Shona declared her intentions to leave the convent and seek out another to join, Abeth offered to accompany her, confident that wherever the new magus Shona landed, her shieldgrog would be accepted and appreciated.
