Simon's father came to work at the Varin House estate when Simon was in his early teens. While settling in there, he observed Katye and Hector dancing at the spring festival and promptly fell in love with them both. He has been a devoted servant of Katye's family since she can remember (which means she doesn't remember much; she was 12 when he came) and continued this service into a secret triad marriage between himself, Katye and Hector.

History

Hector met Simon during Katye's adventure to rescue Hector from himself while acting as royal ambassador to Pikae shortly after Geoff's coronation. Hector spotted Simon in a bar and said, "Good gods, I didn't know the giants had come this far south. Look at the size of him! He’s like a Glavnayan stallion. Put a saddle on him, I’ll ride him home." This was before he realized said Galavnayan stallion was also acting as Katye's bodyguard. Much to his scandal-loving delight, Hector also discovered that Katye and Simon had been sleeping together during their journey and were rapidly becoming more attached to each other than simply master and servant.   When Katye's father discovered the situation, he dismissed Simon and demanded that Katye accept a suitor after years of fighting an arranged marriage. In the aftermath, Hector suggested to Katye that they marry as an escape for her from a marriage she may not wish. He encouraged her to marry him and continue to sleep with Simon. When the proposition was put to Simon, though, he was extremely jealous and accused Katye of being just another noble. It wasn't until he realized that Hector meant to marry them BOTH that he understood the depth of Hector's love for his dearest friend. While they began as rivals, Simon and Hector quickly became romantically attached and the trio's marriage has been successful, happy, and satisfying for all involved.
