Born in Bengal, daughter of a British antiques dealer and collector and an Indian poetess. Shortly following the Indian Revolt of 1857 (shortly after Padma was born), her parents decided to leave the country due to rising social and political discord. However, the journey to Britain was met with tragedy when a storm nearly capsized their ship, claiming the lives of several members of the crew, including Padma’s mother.
Has since taken over her father’s business and estate in London, and is an esteemed antiquarian in her own right, as well as a learned occultist. Now she is rarely seen outside the company of her valet and apprentice, young Duncan Bowers.
