Harriet Mendes was the youngest of the three triplets, Paul, Harold, and herself, she was a very beautiful girl, but beneath he beauty lay a horrible spiteful girl.
Most people at school envied her beauty and cofindence and she only had a couple of friends that she could really talk to.
During collage Harriet needed some money to pay for her course in Interior Design, so she took up a job in modeling, at first it started as just a way to get money but soon she made a full-time job of it and dropped out of collage.
Soon, though, the novelty wore off and she was left in a job that she hated.
While walking home one night she walked into a man selling key-rings, he called himself Elliot Sommors, who was Hephaestus in disguise.
He instantly fell in love with her, the two of them met up more and more regurally when finally they agreed to be in a romantic relationship.
But soon Harriet found out she was pregnant, and thought it was the perfect opportunity to quit her job as a model and start a new job in the thing she loved most, interior design.
But soon after Flare was born Hephaestus had to leave, leaving Harriet some money to pay for her course.
Flare grew up fine, and his mother became quite a famous interior designer. At school though, he was bullied for his weight and appearance, even though he was perfectly normal.
Soon he started having eating disorders, but his mother was always too busy to notice.
Soon though his head master found out and told his mother, worried, she tried to force him to eat, but somehow Flare always managed to get out of it.
Flare grew depressed and slowly crept into insanity, he'd lock himself in his room for hours on end and skipped school a lot.
His mother had enough of it and decided to take him to a psychologist, slowly but surely he became sane....ish.
One day when he was literally dragging himself to school when a harpy attacked him, Flare managed to run and hide in a dumpster before the harpy could do any more that tear his top off him. Suddenly there was a little squeal and then Flare noticed he was sitting on a beautiful girl....with goat legs....
She suddenly noticed him and knew who he was straight away, she then explained about him being a demigod, etc. etc. And that she was here to take him to camp.
Flare was so stunned the only thing he could do was nod, and with that she pulled him out of the dumpster and pushed him into her car, which was probably stolen.
Harriet knew nothing and just thought Flare had died in a car crash, she was saddened but it didn't last long as she moved to Tokyo to start a new life.
Flare later entered camp, was claimed by Hephaestus and has been residing there ever since.
