Description: Arianna is quite fair possessing an ethereal beauty. Her skin is milky and pale without being translucent. Long ashen blonde locks flow down her back and touch her rear and she often wears it down. Arianna is fond for all manner of white and silver accents in her choice of clothing. Her fashion sense is very well developed and seems to change depending on the current trend. Although she is very slender, her height makes her appear even more so. Lending to a certain delicate air about her. Her eyes sparkle with a certain liveliness and she has the most breathtaking smile. The young diplomat chooses her words carefully and when she speaks it is with a soft, clear pitch that captures the interest of those around her. If she were a bit older, or depending on her manner of dress for the evening, one might consider her to be innately a very sensual girl. She possesses delicate facial features with full pouty lips that wordlessly promise some sort of carnal pleasure. Most astounding however is that she is always fresh in her style and likes variety in her wardrobe, never wearing the same thing twice. Arianna loves jewelry and has made more than one friend through gifts of gems and precious stones which she sends to her family's craftsmen back home to refine into stunning accessories.

Personality: Arianna's beauty is equalled by her cleverness, which she has in abundance. A true protege of her mother, she is a gifted manipulator who knows how to maneuver her way in court politics. She has formidable skill in rooting out the desires and needs of those nearest to her and finding a way to provide them with it. Though her manipulations are secondary to her charm and ability to abstain from acting on her impulses, mostly. She can blend in seemlessly with any group of people she chooses and win their hearts. This is a talent that stems from her genuine desire to please others. The young diplomat possesses a certain tact and politeness that others in her station might lack. While she can be quite blunt if necessary she exudes courtly behaviors and courtesies. Arianna does not let her sex stop her from succeeding in life, instead she uses her wiles within the social standards of proper feminity. This allows her to orchestrate political ambitions from behind the scenes and seemingly from a position of vulnerability. There are rumors about some of her darker appetites, but of course with reputation comes those who might spread heinous lies to stain her honor for being a member of the Crownsworn.

Background: Arianna is the only daughter in the Stonewood family. She was born to her mother who was a proper Lady from a vassal house in the Lyceum, Lady Vayla Pravus. Her father being the Count of Stonewood himself, until he died and her eldest brother Malesh inherited the title. She grew up with a fascination for culture and anthropology. Always a people watcher and a clever girl from the start, she learned how to read before she was able to walk and she spoke quite early. She was pale of skin and fair, her family could not be more proud of their newest addition. Though she was never directly subject to the pressures of her family, their reputation as the reigning house from Pride Hall to Whitehawk was an immense weight to bear. Arianna learned the subtlies of people's mannerisms and customs, the way they held themselves when they were proud or broken. The little tells that people had when they were lying. All of these aspects of psychology intrigued her and she quietly learned by throwing herself into the proverbial lions den. Having been born to the courts and becoming intimately familiar with it, she realized her natural talent at finding out what people needed and providing it for them. Arianna cultivated favors like a farmer cultivates his crop. While the young woman had briefly considered many different vocations, none was more intriguing than that of truth seeker. Or scholar. Though that didn't stop her from also being intrigued by the possibility of becoming a linguist, diplomat, expert on esoterica, or an investigator and skilled in martial pursuits. All in all quite an eclectic array of interests for someone so young, but none the less she has used her talents to further her family's ambitions. While she traveled Arvum for the first time she discovered many interesting things but truly only ended up with more questions than answers. Ever loyal to the causes she devotes herself to, in the time that she has come to the city she has joined the Iron Guard and devoted herself to helping the city thrive after it's most recent tragedies.

  • Name Summary
    Aella Delightful, clever, and oh so talented with those daggers of hers. It truly was a pleasure getting to meet and converse with Lady Stonewood. Now to see if she enjoys making trouble, just as much as I do.
    Aiden Well... the first impression... Aiden scared her off, he's certain, with his talk of murder when conflict started in the Golden Hart due to a particular commoner. The second impression, which was as good as the first, Aiden felt she pushed her boundaries with him and made him fall in line without knowing it. She's got a sharp silver tongue.
    Arn Laugh at me, will you? Better not be a second time. Some crownlands noble girl that knows Percephon. That's strike two. Wants to talk to me about my history. Why the hell are all these girls harassing me for training and knowledge? Gods be damned, why am I being tormented so?
    Asher Attractive, likely dangerous, flirtatious, and is okay with innuendo. It's like a female version of myself, if I was incredible enough to not need a day job.
    Aurora She is...a lot. Brash and confident. I have no idea what to make of her just yet, but it appears she is a regular in the Unkindness so im sure i'll run into her once or twice to find out.
    Caelis I was unsure what to think of this odd woman. Her carriage speaks of violence and yet I found her challenging my intellect instead. I don't know if she can be couldn't as ally or threat, but she is at the very least fascinating.
    Calaudrin I haven't spent time much with her. I think she might be a little odd, but who isn't? She does seem to her shit or some shit and willing to share information. That's invaluable.
    Christine A charming woman. One of the first people Christine met in Arx.
    Clara Attitude in a pretty package. Good fighter.
    Daemon One of the few faces I still remember from my time here in the city. One of the few who also remembers me. I cherish that connection and I only hope with all of my heart she feels the same.
    Dorian Confidence is key in being a champion and Dorian finds those like Arianna to be very valuable - She's good at soaking up all the attention in the room, which is useful sometimes.
    Eleyna She's undeniably beautiful, but she is like the half-opened bud of rare flower. There is a promise of grace in the petals, but the blossom has yet to be given the opportunity to fully bloom. It'll be interesting to see what place she takes in the garden when she finally has.
    Esoka The Voice of Stonewood seems to comport herself well in an intimidating room, amidst the grim threat of supernatural blights.
    Gaston The first time I saw her, Duke Arn was ripping into her. She didn't wilt, but seemed to almost build herself up with it. Irritated towards the end perhaps, but soon with a smile gracing her lips once more.
    Isolde A curious soul. Beautiful but with an edge about her.
    Joslyn Such a mysterious woman... She wanted to provide comfort to me for my loss, though we hardly know one another. She seems kind and gracious, and though there's something else about her I can't quite put my finger on, I am grateful for her company.
    Killian An interesting young woman, intense and willing to become involved in matters. It will be interesting to see how she develops in the city. I've had very little exposure to Stonewood, so don't really know just what to expect of her.
    Maeve I have to admire someone who seeks knowledge of the spirits and ways to fix the land. She seems very serious about this endeavor! I kind of feel badly for interrupting her conversation with Lady Khanne. Hopefully, she will find the knowledge she seeks.
    Merek %bMerek doesn't know much about Arianna, but he thinks she is beautiful and well-meaning from what he has seen at the least when he first saw her! Also something about a fashion discussion he overheard, who knows!
    Petal She is very pretty, looks good in my dresses and is nice about the order she places.
    Reese Reese thinks that Arianna seems like a promising young voice. She doesn't know her well yet, but she would like to know her better, specially since her family is part of Grayson. She is pleasant to be around and certainly is quite charming. Reese hopes to become a friend with time.
    Sabella How can one not love the dramatic and theatric sight of of a lovely rear warming a bar top with a bit of sweet and sass to add to the atmosphere of a night out.
    Samantha Lady Arianna has grown into a self-determined, strong woman who is devoted to duty. Most recently she has been an example of 'best intention, unfortunate result', but she is young, and still in need in tempering. If she manages to hone her skills and course correct, she will be a formidable diplomat and politico. It would please me very much to watch her succeed.
    Sebastian My second cousin and maker of mischief. We spent some time growing up together in Setarco, but it has been too long since I have seen her. It was good to make contact again.
    Silas Silas taught Lady Arianna the basics of investigation. Chances are she's now much better at it than he is, but the bar he sets is pretty low. His initial impression left him believing she is an ambitious and mentally sharp woman, who is useful as an ally and dangerous as an enemy.
    Sivard Lady Arianna Stonewood. Happenstance found me in the Training Center, where I found her in the middle of a bout with a few men. Despite them having the advantage in power and range, she bested them in a near effortless manner. I had been looking for someone who preferred a similar method of combat, perhaps to converse with, nothing more.. yet, I left that day with a teacher. She's skilled and very patient, which is good.. because I can be quite trying at times.
    Skapti Well, she's certainly not bloody shy now, is she? Damned awful lot of titles though. I think I'd pass out for lack of breath if I tried to say them all in the same one.
    Sparte A very, um, very strong personality. She doesn't wanted to be treated as special, even though the daftest pair of eyes can clearly see she is. Quick and capable with a blade too, though she needs some work there if she wants to win any fair fights.
    Valery She seems nice, though maybe a bit suspicious, not sure sometimes if she was joking. And she's curious.
    Victus Cousin called her Ambassador. She's certainly got the looks for diplomacy.
