Parents dead, Quain'tana's high expectations for her (she was chosen as a heir to the clan only because of the respect Quain'tana had for her parents) , Ariel getting the title of heir because Quain'tana didn't like tainted ones.
She was the Sarghress that better embodied what being a Val was, she obviously didn't fit in that clan but it wasn't her fault after all.
Hate to correct you, but yeah, it was. She chose to get herself tainted (which we all learn reduced her lifespan to the next 50 years, tops, and was even primed to blow during the "duel" with Quain.) She chose to make Ariel her enemy, by abuse, rather than take advantage of the very unique opportunity Quain gave her to influence the next potential heir to her side.
She chose to lock Ariel and Fuzzy in a room for a week, without food water, or a ltter box, and then brutally killed the poor helpless animal by bashing its skull into a wall, and threatening to do the same to Ariel for being upset about it.
Let's not forget how she attacked Ariel at the top of the stairs over Quain's war council, trying to bleed Ariel dry, and when that didn't work, started opening a nether portal, again, right on top of said war council, IN SESSION.
Yeah, she happily sowed the seeds of her own destruction, and then had the gall to be shocked and outraged that it came back to bite her.
Sorry. Don't pity her one bit. She got off easy with Quain's mercy kill. If Chel was fair, Quain would have clubbed her to death with a mace
