"How did Bellamew make her eyes so alive?"
~ Queen Bitterblue
|Family|| Hava - daughter
Holt - brother
|Allegiance||King Leck (formerly)|
|Appears||Mentioned in Bitterblue|
Leck raped Bellamew and she bore a daughter, Hava. Bellamew managed to keep Hava's existence a secret from Leck, despite Leck's Grace, largely because Hava was Graced with disguise. Leck suspected she was hiding something, and when he discovered Hava, he killed Bellamew. Bellamew created a sculpture of Bitterblue turning into a castle, which is reflected in Bitterblue's conversation with Fire toward the end of Bitterblue.
Bellamew was very talented, Bitterblue often expressed respect and admiration for her sculptures. When she saw the statue of her mother, Queen Ashen, she thought that "the sculpture didn't just look, but felt like Ashen.". The statue also made it certain that Ashen and Bellamew knew each other pretty well.
