Default Patience Kys

So I was bored the other day and picked up the Ravenor series, and was wondering what the backround on Patience Kys is? I tried looking online, but I can't find anything solid beyond the fact that she seems to be hiding some past. There was a mention that in "Let the Galaxy Burn" there is mention of her orgins, but I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me?

Thanks!

Let the Galaxy burn does indeed have a story explaining how Patience came to work for the inquisition. Its been a long time since I read that compilation of stories, but I believe she was 'kidnapped' and used as sport for a group to hunt and others to take bets on until Ravenor finds and saves her. (At least I believe thats the gist of the story, but its definately something to read if you want a little more info on some of Ravenors companions.)

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Nope...you're off-track. They are talking about the Ravenor series and a compilation book Let The Galaxy Burn...which has a nice short story in it detailing the Patience Kys origin. No pre-heresy stuff here bud. ;)
