Collette de Valois was born in 1327, northwest of Paris. She came of age during the Black Death.

Mundanely, she joined the Society at the tender age of 14 and learned to fight with a rapier. She eventually joined the costuming and armored communities, finding joy in recreating many different eras of clothing and bashing her enemies with a polearm.

She served as the youngest female Kingdom Rapier champion in the Middle at the age of 21. She served with her mother, Antonia Lavinia Maria Toscano, as the first set of same-gender Baronesses in the Known world, and first in the Kingdom of the Middle. They were invested and divested by the same King and Queen, Cellach MacCormaic and Vukasin of Lozengia, four years apart.

January 8, 2021, during the Great Plague, Collette became the 3rd squire of Sir Gregoire de Lyon and also a member of the House of Bellecour.
