Born to a rich Chernarussian, Anton Nováček, and a prized (and married) American escort, Persephone Marie Kingsley did not have the easiest of childhoods, often left to her own demise and definitely not watched as closely as she should have been. She ended up with her step father's last name as per American law and she was assumed to be his child for the longest time. Her mother was seen more so an asset to her step father, a way to make money while also keeping her in line and showing her she would always be his possession.
Her mother secretly had been collecting child support from Anton as part of an agreement they had to keep her paternity hidden, after all, Persephone would be her way out of her loveless marriage once she had enough money. Persephone's step father began abusing drugs and alcohol and forcing her into doing them as well. Persephone began to become infatuated with him, becoming too close for comfort so to speak. Her mother did not like this and contacted Anton about sending her with him to Chernarus to protect her.
Anton decided this would be a great benefit to him, arranging for her to be married to a Novak heir, a political move more than anything on Anton's part. She did not like having to leave America or her stepfather she had gained the favor of and was forced into a plane to Chernarus. Upon landing, she met her half brother Jakub, who had been told to look over Persephone and ensure she stayed out of trouble. And that's when shit hit the fan.
Recently, she got separated from her brother Jakub who has been missing for weeks now. She last saw him in Stary with his 'employers' and she hasn't seen or heard from him since and hasn't been able to identify these people again. Since then she has been hanging around with the Rebirth crew, becoming close with Shawn, Luca, Rory and Darren. After trespassing on the airfield and seeing how Abram was beaten, she decided to redeem herself by snitching on Garrett Mercer and Taryn, telling the Russians that they were selling cocaine. This has lead to the execution of Garrett.
