1. She has always known that her beauty was a valued asset, a weapon she could wield to get what she wanted. A pout here, a pout there, and her father caved. A smile here, a smile there, and she had the attention of every man in the room. But that very weapon hid the greatest weapon she had, her intellect. Her beauty hid it so well even she didn’t recognize it until she met Lucretia.
2. She had no intentions of getting pregnant, and honestly didn’t want children. She knew it was her duty, and she was prepared to fulfill it, but given a choice, she wouldn’t have had children. The idea of being tied to anyone, even flesh and blood, makes her skin crawl. This changed when Spartacus spared her life.
3. At the very end, she would have moved heaven and hell to be with Lucretia…if she thought she would be able to get away with it.
