Bio:

Daughter of a watchmaker and a woman who married for love beneath her station, Genevieve grew up in a household perched between classes. As a child, she could often be found making watches and devices out of spare gears. In addition to fixing items in the shop, she had a tendency to take apart working clocks or watches. (Phase One, Inveterate Tinkerer)

When Gene was seventeen, a gentleman came into her father’s shop to replace his watch. Intrigued by an item created by Gene, he gave her entre into the Royal Academy of Sciences. This brought her into contact with other brilliant minds, including Voltaire and an avid letter writer, the American Ben Franklin. (Phase Two, The Scientific Method)

When picking up a book at her favorite bookshop, Gene encountered a young noble girl, Celeste Wraith, awestruck at the selection around her. Striking up a conversation, she gave her a bit of a tour, showing her favorite texts to Celeste. Gene left after giving Celeste her card. (Phase Four, Knowledge is Wealth)

After reading an account of Ben Franklin’s electricity experiment, Gene attempted to replicate it at a local park. The experiment was a success, but she witnessed an attack on a young noble girl, and helped to chase away the attacker. After successfully catching him, she encountered Celeste and her bodyguard, Joscelin, who were poised to aid her. (Phase Three, Nothing to Fear . . .)

Having been intrigued by a letter from Celeste about missing servants, Gene had followed several odd clues of wild animals nearby. After meeting a local inspector, Philippe Berard, she found additional evidence of foul play, but not enough to form a full theory. Still, she was intrigued by this new area of science. (Phase Five, The Science of Criminology)
