Lady Oriana Inverno
It's a shame how whole families can be torn apart by something as simple a pack of wild dogs.
Description: The innocence of youth still clings to her, softening what might other wise be overly sharp features, rounding out the high cheekbones and pointy chin into something that goes beyond just mildly pleasing to the eye. Pale grey eyes are sharp, watchful and hold a mischievious glint to them that brightens what might otherwise be an overly washed out color. Her hair is the soft brown of sable pelts, and seems to be well cared for, and always exceptionally styled for whatever situation she might find herself in.
Personality: Quick-witted with a wickedly sharp tongue doesn't even begin to describe her. She's always got a response, tends to try for the last word in any conversation. She's not rude, never that, but she's not a push over, either. She stands her ground, and faces the world with a smile even in the face of grim fates and has been prone towards gallows humor.
Background: Oriana had an older brother, one that was meant to eventually take over the family and the House, so she was allowed the freedom to explore and settle into whatever life she might want to have. The life she chose was a questionable one, by most standards. She begun taking to sea with some of the ah...fisherman of Caina, coming back frequently with more than just fish, however. Among those in the family, they knew, but she was careful enough that any illegal activity couldn't be connected to her, or in turn the family itself. In fact, she denies it often. She's just a girl, with a penchant for the sea and her religion.
When Argento was recently taken by House Pravus her own family was thrown into turmoil, some they found had gotten closer to Argento over the recent generation than before. But somehow it was never proven if Oriana or her twin brother were among those loyal to Argento, or removed from the conflict itself. If asked, she always maintains her loyalty to her family as being all that matters.
|Alessandro||It takes a skilled reflection to bring one to such hard truths. Thank you.|
|Barric||There's something behind those eyes that makes me feel like I am being measured and weighed, she is smart, charming, and sophisticated. Makes me feel like a country bumpkin.|
|Caspian||It's great she's back! Never can have too many friends. And she is a good friend. Hopefully we get to go out with The Explorers and get into a bit of trouble.|
|Echo||She doesn't seem adverse to all the exceptionally weird things we might've been chatting about, so she seems to be good company overall!|
|Gareth||On all accounts she seems a typical Lady of the Peerage. So I have my suspicions that she is definitely not, a typical Lady of the peerage.|
|Jeffeth||I'm sorry I couldn't keep a better eye on her at Stormwall. I promised I would stick to Lord Niklas, but she did more than alright for herself. A natural!|
|Liara||She has an unusual way about her, of taking notes about complete strangers, while talking to them. Might get her into trouble with less friendly sorts, but I found it interesting, in away.|
|Lorenzo||I'll never understand people who take work into a bar. Or, I just need to work harder at understanding, I suppose. I'm sure spiked hot tea helps.|
|Lydia||A bit of a ham, and not the strongest. Like me. I like her.|
|Margerie||A bit wobbly on her feet and lightheaded, but before the drink went to her head she showed signs of being a lively conversationalist. I'll have to run into her a bit earlier in the eveing. A gited curtsier.|
|Monique||I like her wit. I like it so much. You can always judge a woman by how quickly her brain works. Worth getting to know.|
|Pasquale||There is more grit and resilience in this one than she readily shows, I think. Caina is, indeed, a bare rock, but I suspect she will make something worthy of it as its Voice.|
|Reese||Lovely and kind. I noticed how she treated a commoner new to town with such thoughtfulness and care.|
|Sabella||I enjoyed her sense of humor and she has excellent taste in shoes! We are surely destined to be friends!|
|Theron||Lady Oriana's returned to town and she seems nice as ever, and properly Lycene. I can always appreciate someone who's a proper Lycene.|
|Valarian||What a fascinating woman! Chimes? Hide and seek? Such a fierce smile, and from rocks, too! And gods, so much fun to talk to. I definitely need to do so again in the future, fellow Explorer!|
