After her incidental creation by Sensate
tech, Desire grew, supported by her tribe and gorging on a diet of her Foci kin.
Desire possessed a capability of foresight and planning rare to her kind, and with her growing intelligence came to unite many Sensate tribes into a cult. Her will spread, less by word and more in the thoughts and souls of the expanding sprawl of her Sensate network. Before long her influence settled into the bedrock of the Banners which had come and which had yet to form.
In her expansion, Desire demonstrated the tactics which Hedon still uses to this day. She acquired ally after ally, forming networks of owed favors, blackmail material, and trusted zealots in places high, low, and common. She became famous for the deeds done in her name—acts which won her the favor of entire communities.
