Octavia spent a time in the court of Amber approximately 30-40 years ago; she vanished after a dozen years and returned in time for Eric's coronation.

She served in the cavalry in France, joining when she was 19 and staying for twenty years.

A snippet of memory: The bar was in Delhi, and it was hot and dry like all of India in the summer. There was a fight in that bar, between a skinny dark man in a turban and a British soldier... there was a knife to the skinny man's throat, and he exploded into motion, in a move that ended with the knife in the soldier's throat instead...

I followed the Hindu man out into the street as he fled, and into dark narrow alleys where I shouldn't have gone, where flashes of movement and color suggested I was entering an area where the so-civilized British did not dare go...

When I caught up to him and begged him to teach me the move, the room he brought me to had a statue of a many-armed goddess adorned in skulls and a thin red cord coiled in front of it - and I knew that the British were not so correct as they thought when they said the Thuggee were gone...
