Constance helped her parents run their beet factory. They sold most of the crop to the Red Plumes.
During the Rage of Demons[as of when?], her parents died of a strange illness contracted from a drow stranger who hid in their factory. She discovered them, but tried to keep everything quiet until she was old enough to inherit the factory. However, she was discovered by a patrol of Red Plumes and some adventurers who happened to be in the area at that time.
