Elizabeth Ridley was a sheva to an Order of the Blade member named Cade. She left her husband for him and their son Trig was born. When her husband tried to get her back, it turned Cade rogue, causing him to murder the ex-husband and turn on Maggie, Elizabeth's daughter from her first marriage. When Elizabeth tried to stop him, Maggie feared for her mother's safety, so she threw a knife at him. Her mother attacked her in defense of Cade, but stopped when he tried to murder Trig. Gideon Roarke arrived and dispatched both Cade and Elizabeth because they had gone insane from the sheva curse. Maggie was left to raise her orphaned half brother.
