She cloaks herself with whatever she chooses. Honor, virtue, darkness; it does not matter. All that matters is that her true image is never beheld. She is seen but not touched; witnessed but never remembered. She is a spectre, a mirage, a shadow. The veil hides grief, greed, pain. With it, a woman will shield herself from the world, as well as shield the world from her.
