"Conrad De Wilde is an Eton and Cambridge University graduate, a Royal Navy veteran, and a successful, albeit low-key lawyer that was born in Bakersfield, but with the success of his father’s law practice, was granted acceptance into some of Great Britain’s finest education institutions. Along with being a master of his profession, he is also a profound intellectual with an appetite for knowledge and fine literature. Mr. De Wilde is fluent in languages, including Spanish, French, Italian and Russian.
After his father passed away, he was automatically made the head of his father’s law practice and still manages the London practice from his home, but after marrying Lourdes , the newly married couple decided to move back to Mr. De Wilde’s former hometown. Their only child, Ainsleigh, was not the daughter that Mr. De Wilde initially wanted, but as time went on, he came to love the child. However, Lourdes’ unexpected death sped up the deterioration of his relationship with Ainsleigh, who was nine at the time of her mother’s death." — oscar-wilde
