Riesz was born to Dietrich Schellheim, well-known fetish clothing designer, womanizer, and hedonist — and one of his many wives. Dietrich clearly was not the ideal father figure. He took full advantage of his fame, enjoying good food, beautiful company, and his decadent tastes in bed were infamous. Riesz grew up very close to her father, having never met her mother. Naturally, Dietrich spoiled his daughter and taught her everything he knew about clothing, about women, about enjoying yourself. Drilled into her head was the most important tenet to live by: 'If nothing else, you must look good. You can get far in life on good looks alone.'
Of course, being the young daughter of a fetish clothing magnate, Riesz was often sent around Europe to model her father's wares. Most places outside of the Austrian Monarchy did not receive the idea of a young girl freely flaunting such sexualized clothing very well, but the tours ultimately increased her father's notoriety, and the few folk that were interested in such finery purchased their wares from Dietrich, applauding such a ballsy move. Only one location had met such a show with positive reception (or at least, the least negative reception) — Elysian City, Elysia. After Riesz returned from Elysian City, she reported that Elysians were absolutely crazed with BDSM and the associated wares. Dietrich quickly decide he needed a share of the incredibly lucrative market. What better place to open up a new franchise? And who better to run it, than his very own daughter?
And so, with her father's blessing (and a few things to protect herself), Riesz was sent back to Elysian City, where she opened up shop and sells her father's wares to this very day. Despite being spoiled and carefree, Riesz has a genuine interest in doing her part to make everyone look as good as can be.
