Ralf was a hero who fought bravely and well. But his face showed the scars of battle and frankly, no woman would look at him. In his despair, he robbed the ancient trader barons of Greatwood and bought a house and a pile of presents to give out. Women fell at his feet and eventually he chose a gorgeous one to marry. But too late, he realized that the type of female who is impressed by gifts and houses is too shallow to make a good bride. So Ralf decapitated her and waved her lovely head about in triumph. And the phrase 'Trophy Wife' was born.
