Adeline began her life billed as "The Lovely Duckling," and became "Swan Girl" at the age of fifteen, exhibited before crowds since her childhood. Educated in humane animal training and handling by her uncle, and in performance by her mother, Adeline's unique deformity and mesmerizing act have kept her in consistent demand.  But a recent series of tragic, mysterious, and disastrous events, resulting in the disbandment of the troupe she once called home, have found her all alone and struggling to survive by herself…
Now, along with her lion Maximus, and to her great relief, Adeline has been accepted into one of the last troupes in existence to have need of her rare talents. She has been welcomed by Elsa Mars' Cabinet of Curiosities, and found a place once again amongst those like her….but will this current arrangement lead to contentment, or only further ruin…….
