As shown in the movie Persephone was the wife of The Merovingian, who himself was an obsolete program who denied being deleted. My question is, does anybody know anything about the origins of Persephone? There seems to be no specific information that indicates who she previously was.

Did you mean origins in the myth sense? –  Zhen Dec 2 '11 at 8:18
Nope, I meant in the not-myth sense. I know that Persephone is the daughter of Zeus and blah blah blah... –  Hamed Momeni Dec 2 '11 at 8:22

Persephone's origin is not mentioned in the movie. But she mentions about silver bullets ,thus suggesting that Merovingian has a werewolf background. The DVD Behind the scenes mentions that she is a vampire that seeks after emotions.

She admires the love that Trinity and Neo holds for each other. She also mentions about the love that she had once enjoyed, which suggests that Merv was a better spouse before he is lost in his hunger and greed for power and lust. Hence she appears to be no more bothered about the matrix as well as Merv.
