The merchant and his wife raised her as if she were their own, though they were very strict. She was never allowed to leave the house without one of them or another trusted household member. Of course as she got older, as many young people do, she started to sneak away and visit the village.
This of course frightened the merchant and his wife to no end. At their wits end they did the only thing they could think of. They had a tower built and locked her away. They had heard about similar things happening to a princess in another land and figured if it was good for her it was good for them.
The merchant and his wife felt terrible about locking their beloved adoptive daughter away in the tower, but it was all they could think to do to protect her from herself.
