The mother of the MC falls deeply in love with a foreign nobleman. They plan on running away together by ship but her family attempts to stop them. However, the nobleman kills them and reveals his true identity to her, a green winged humanoid demonic creature and whisks her away to his realm. There he mates with her, impregnates her and keeps her confined in a tower surrounded by his minions who look after her and prevent her from leaving. After nearly a year she gives birth to his child and the MC of the story, a healthy baby human girl with her mother's features and her father's powers. After being blessed with magic from her demon father, her mother begs him to let her keep the baby. He agrees but demands she be returned to him when she turns 20. After agreeing and being whisked back to her home, she dies a few months later and the baby ends up adopted by a cobbler, his wife and their 4 year old son. She is raised by them and lives happily ever after, not! Is that too dark for a backstory? I guess it's more of an origin story than a backstory as far as the MC is concerned but I'll leave that for you to decide. Also couldn't decide if this thread belongs in this thread or the Character thread.
