Penelope was never particularly liked by the Cargan family. Maybe it was bad blood, or maybe it was her penchant for getting into trouble as a child no matter what her parents told her to do and expecting to be bought out of it. Eventually enough was enough and Penelope was told to leave and come back when she had learned how to act like an adult.
So off she went, travelling the world as best she could, using up what money she was able to smuggle out with her to pay for Wayfinders to help her get around until eventually she disappeared completely for months, reappearing only when she arrived back at the Cargan estate declaring that she had found religion and was now a devout Priestess of the Leader.
Dubiously she was let back in, but without any of the benefits the rest of the Cargan family enjoy until she truly proves herself to have changed.
Update as of The Penitent Damned: Penelope has gained the favour of her dear Uncle Walter after doing a number of jobs with him and, more in particular, saving his life and helping uncover a conspiracy by Gaspard Cargan to ban mages. She was restored to the House, gaining again the advantages of being a Cargan.
Update as of Ocean of Nightmares: Penelope has been outed as a Traitor Priest by using a Traitor Miracle to help take on a Dragon. Uncle Walter expressed surprise that Penelope was as competent a liar as that and threw her a party… long story short, she's now in charge of the First Acryn Church of the Traitor. Well, the first public one.
Update as of Anniversary: Penelope is made of blood, has lost her Superior equipment and the fragment of the Rampant that was stored in her knife is now stored in a stone fist which resides in her Church.
Update as of An Ecumenical Matter: Under Hoskins's Law, Penelope's church is banned. She and her followers quickly scatter and she returns to the Cargan Estate with what she can take from the church as they abandon it. She is also now courting Francesco Graves.
Update as of Matters of Trade: Penny now has a formed layer of skin again – her face is as it was before, but her hair is now red like Armand's and she is “sexier”. She is also an excommunicant of the Traitor, unengaged from Francesco and has fled her Uncle's estate.
