Vanessa Cleef is the daughter of Saiden, and Alyse Cleef making her a member of House Cleef through her father, and a member of House Hirsh through her mother. Vanessa Cleef has one child in the form of the former bastard child of whom she would have with Robin Highport and the child is now the source of much question in terms of the line of succession for House Highport.

Vanessa Cleef would be born the first child of Saiden, and Alyse Cleef and at the time of her birth her family were low level nobles who controlled a small stretch of land within the west of the province of Lucerne. Growing up her mother attempted to bring a sense of culture to their lives and thus had several girls from farmers families sent to the House Cleef estate where they would become her handmaidens and these girls would come to have a super inflated view of themselves as they were doted on by Alyse Cleef at the expense of Vanessa and thus growing up Vanessa was bullied quite heavily by the handmaidens of her mother. Vanessa Cleef would join the popular girls of Trachtenburg for a time coming to be the handmaiden of Michelle Trachtenburg and while at first she did this in silence making little friendships or influence it was several months in that she suffers emotionally during a cultural event known as the Shulting and following this would cease being the handmaiden of Michelle and returned to the Cleef estate. Vanessa Cleef would join her family in traveling into the lands of Anthor during the founding of the province, and during her initial time there the usually unpopular girl found herself with the attention of several of the more influential noble girls of the growing Port of Stormwind and it was in this new attention she would become involved in a very large scandal due to the mean behavior of the girls. Vanessa Cleef would accompany her father and brother and a large force of Anthor towards Brill where they went in order to deal with the Gestife Affair and fight for the release of Candice Anthor of whom they though was captured but arriving there Vanessa was hurt by more manipulations from her handmaidens of whom convinced her that Robin was engaged in an affair with Candice Anthor. Vanessa Cleef gives birth to Robin Highport II. and she does this without revealing the name of the father, but throughout her pregnany and even more so now she falls under the sway of her sister Myrcella Snow who makes her bitter towards Robin. Shortly following the birth of Robin Highport II. its Robin that arrives in Goldshire and fresh from secretly asking for her hand in marriage from her father he expects to ask for her hand, but instead a bitter Vanessa is cruel to him and sends him away without revealing his son. Following the confrontation with Robin Highport its Vanessa that is confronted again but this time by Candace Anthor who reveals how wrong she was and Vanessa attempts to make things right but an angry Saiden instead places her into isolation at the Temple of Goldshire where she is forced to not leave Goldshire.

Candice Anthor Cover - HD1.jpg

I need you to escort my daughter west. These are dangerous times and I need a man I can trust to do this. Can I trust you Robin?

Despite having accepted his fate whatever love he had for Candice had gone away following the discovery that she had cheated on him during their betrothal, and had not only fallen in love with the man but had also mothered a child with the man. Candice traveled westward escorted by Robin Highport of whom had been asked to accompany Candice as a favor for Varian and Robin saw this as an easy way to travel to see Vanessa of whom he had learned had gone back to the Lucernian estate for House Cleef alongside her brother in order to assist in the passing of the estate to a newly founded knightly house. While traveling on the Wuhr River the emotionally upset Candice would spend most of the time flirting with Robin and while he was nice to her he was dismissive of this but she continued and this continued all the way till they reached the Greenhave River and prepared to move north up the Aelevin River. Reaching the town of Libanius which sat at the forks of the Greenhave and Aelevin River it was the group that would remain on board the boat attempting to get what sleep they could before they made there final move down the Aelevin River and then west up the Trachten River to while camped on the road she attempted to sleep with him but he would resist her causing her to flee his tent.

On the road with Thomas Grestife it was Candice that for the first time realizes the consequences of her actions and tried to bed Thomas to let her go but Thomas despite feeling bad for what he was doing was unwilling to help her and thus the two made it back to Castle Grestife. While held a hostage at Castle Grestife she would be treated well by Lord Reginald Grestife of whom showed himself to be an honorable man but was driven heavily by the oaths of loyalty he swore to the king and by extension House Jestife and he attempted to explain this to Candice but she refused this line of argument telling him that William was the king now and everything done against him was treason. Several days after her capture it was Jeremy Jestife the man who had taken the lead on the capture of Candice Anthor who would arrive in Castle Grestife and he would arrive revealing that the plan was for her to swear herself to their cause and then travel back to Anthor and murder her father and brother and thus become the lady of House Anthor. When she refused this outright it was Jeremy that unlike her previous captors he did not treat her well instead depriving her of luxury and then when she continued to refuse he had her stripped and he would threaten sexual violence if she did not comply within two days.
