She keeps a dagger in VictoriasSecretCompartment and an axe by her side at all times, and refers to the former as her "suckling babe" and the latter as her "husband" whenever men make allusions about her being unmarried and thus available.

* The story of Telephus and Auge. Auge was a former lover of Heracles who was given to Telephus as a wife in reward for him saving a kingdom. Still faithful to Heracles, she brought a knife along in order to kill her husband. Fortunately, right before she stabs him (or, in some variants, simply before the consummation of marriage), a lightning bolt flashes between them. They start talking, and Telephus gets a legitimate reason to leave her alone - [[SurpriseIncest turns out he is the son Auge bore of Hercules]].
