History

Gwen grew up on Long Island with a family that was well off. The Louis' weren't terribly rich, but they were definitely above middle class. The baby of the family, she was spoiled and liked it. Able to bend her father's will with the right pout or perfectly timed tantrum, she got anything that she wanted and grew quite used to that arrangement.

After high school, she forwent college in favor of cruising the Hamptons in search of rich men with her friends. Why study boring subjects when you can just marry some billionaire and live comfortably for the rest of your life? That didn't work quite so well for her, as apparently rich men liked beautiful blonde girls with no education for flings, but not for their Fortune 500 wives. So, Gwen decided to get an eduction in baking. That didn't require silly reading or writing papers. She went to culinary school for desserts, planning on only using it to cook up a rich husband. Or meeting one of those famous chefs and having him sweep her off her feet.

Though she turned out to be a dynamite baker, Gwen certainly didn't want to end up working in some floury bakery. She wanted to be a trophy wife. So, back out to the Hamptons she went. And finally snagged herself a rich man. However, only a year of marriage, she realized that being married just wasn't for her. Plus, her husband didn't really like the way she spent all their money. However, she got a nice settlement from the divorce and she went on to find husband #2. Rinse, repeat. As long as she got money from the divorce, she was happy.

Somewhere along the line, Gwen ran out of men. Yes, it is indeed possible. It was at this low point that she met Grant Fitzpatrick. She met him at one of those intellectual parties that she once in awhile dropped in on. Determining him to be an egghead sucker - come on, he's from Iowa - she decided to seduce him as a sort of placement man until she found someone else. She must have been right in something since the two did hit it off and she managed to wriggle her way into his apartment where she stayed for many months, sponging money off of him and paying for nothing that she could help paying for.

After a couple months of this, she left without any sort of explanation for greener pastures. Or as green as she could get. Realizing that she may not be able to marry and take men for all their worth any more - her reputation preceded her for most of the men she wanted to do that with - she did the next best thing. She started sleeping with men for an already established price. She was not a whore, she was something classier than that. A call girl. She was someone that rich men could take to parties and show off on his arm and then take her home with him for the naughty parts. It's the sort of arrangement that suited Gwen as she never saw sex as anything else but a means to an end.
