The setting is a quasi-Medival European high Fantasy, the subplot is used more as a device to allow the character to be reintroduced to the narrative, which puts later events into affect.
Does that answer your question?
Keeping the previous information in mind, do any more particuarly noticable Unfortuante Implications
Who Am I?
The problem, I am afraid, is that no matter how hard you try to avoid highlighting an unfortunate implication in your story, someone is going to interpret it that way anyway, and take offense. You may wish to consider the idea that it's just not worth avoiding. The only real way, IMHO, to "avoid" the implications is to write the character with such depth and sensitivity that most people ignore any implications and focus instead on those story elements that you do wish to emphasize. Real people experience just what you describe, so make the character seem as real as possible and you should be ok. I hope that's helpful...
