The details of Winifred’s birth will forever remain a mystery, as she was born before ‘The Lady.’ The Lady was the forceful application of Locket's Law onto the Kivouack. This occurred after the death of Locket's mother, Freyda. Winifred quickly rallied behind Locket and assisted in the creation of their new world order, The Age of Locket's Law. Winifred created the Kivouachian fighting force, the Yolsh and became the first Voice of the Yolsh, until her promotion to Grand Whisper after the war was won. Locket then ruled as the Grand Voice of all the Kivouack and set about building ‘the Underbirth’ the first of many Kivouachian cities, spherical in nature, with the creatures living inside it like a reverse planet, gravity bending to suit Locket's design.
Winifred was one of the most highly regarded and feared politicians of the Kivouack, infamous for her temper and ruthlessness but famed for her beauty and angelic voice. She played a part in some of the most scandalous schemes in the history of the Empire. Winifred's name echoed through the Kivouack like thunder. In her youth, Winifred was a deviant, often looking for excuses to humiliate and fondle those she found attractive. One such creature was a mate of Lucy’s, before Celia entered the frame, a messenger called Felicity. Winifred would send her on impossible errands with the intent of punishing her whenever she inevitably failed. Another one of Winifred's favorite playthings was a Yolsh fighter named Dorothy, a creature who made Winifred jealous with her size and strength and so was shamed, constantly and publicly. Fleischer also served as her ‘throne’ for a while, after being found guilty of aiding the sick and wounded. Winifred had a very complicated relationship with Lucy. She had a close rivalry with Lacemaker in the Kivouack political arena, as Lucy was not bound to serve her wishes due to her title as Judge and Voice of the Court.
After many years, ‘Mandus’ became the word on all Kivouachian lips. A creature of horrors who stole away their kind, never to be seen again. Soon after, Winifred went missing. Locket remained silent about the disappearance of her life long friend and the dreadful Winifred was presumed to be no more. Yet, much like Lucy Lacemaker, another ‘victim’ of Mandus, she showed up again. Only her eyes were rendered useless, her body reeked of weakness and her once powerful voice, along with the secrets of what happened to her, was locked away inside her forever.
