Glimmer Minegold is an archetypal vain rich girl, whose father is an influential banker in Eubric. She has learned to rely on her looks rather than trying to make an effort at anything, so when she started at the Academy of Enlightenment, she was overwhelmed by all the theoretic studying she was supposed to do. That is why she quickly found her way into the clique formed by Grant and Cary Bullsworth - the notorious "Rogues".
After the school was destroyed, Glimmer and the rest of their gang followed the Bullsworth brothers into a movement called the "Young Wolf Brigade". Glimmer saw it as another chance to get famous easily.
