476 (October 10) A little baby was born. She was given a name. That's when the story of this woman began. P.S. This date is only for ooc knowledge. Some women do lie about their age!
486 (May) - She began her apprenticeship with a successful Polaris Merchant -- a family friend of her parents doing them a favor. When not attending classes devoted to magical study, she was taught specifics of bookkeeping and business management.

494 (September)- 497 (June) - Caprice went on travels to gather raw materials, tested and sold a few prototypes of her idea, occasionally worked in her former Master's shop, developed a business model and secured an investor for All that Glitters.
497 (December) All that Glitters opened its doors on one of the more heavily trafficked areas of Polaris. It took a couple of months, but soon organized charitable events and galas started putting the little shop on the social map of interesting places to visit.
502 (May) All that Glitters expanded it's product line to include more rare gems as part of their adornments. Some work with jewelry began at this point too.
508 (Nov 1) - Caprice Trillare moved to Gateway shortly after the Great Schism with grand plans to expand her business to a new market. If asked, she was confident that the city needed some new business investors to help bring it back to its former glory.

508 (Dec 12) - After a community outpouring of assistance, All that Glitters 2 opened on Gateway. Business has been even more than Caprice expected, but there are no complaints from her. Two days later, she had an Opening Gala in which half of the proceeds of her shop went to charity.
509 (Jan 21) - The official election results were posted announcing her as the next Merchant Guildmistress.
509 (June 2) - In a completely surprise move, Caprice sold her beloved Gateway version of her Mistian shop to Tourmaline Montaigu under rumors of thinking about another new business venture.

510 (April 26) - She became engaged to be married to Adalbert Friedrich. They were both trying to break up with each other once and for all that night. Really. They were. They really, really were. There must be a remarkable tale on how she ended up with a big diamond on that left hand.
510 (May 28) - Not wasting any time, the couple tied the knot making her a wife.
510 (June 7) - After announcing the Guild nominees for the next elections, she boarded ship to Nimmin to make the marriage official in that country as well.

510 (July 10) - With Guild elections completed, she was officially out of the position and on to her new life of marriage and merchant seafaring.
511 (Oct 30) - She took on her newest and most challenging goal to date - Motherhood. Zanzibar Adalbert Friedrich made a dramatic entry after a labor difficult enough to nearly take his Mother's life.
512 (Oct) - On a return trip to Gateway where it looks like Caprice may stay a while, she was named Ambassador of Hennetag. She quickly changed that title to Ambassadoress. It needed a little flare to it.
