Description: Standing a few inches taller than most women and some men, Sorrel is notable for her lean, shapely form and athletic build. Her long hair is so dark it shines with a hint of blue as it frames her pale face in a riot of curls and hangs in heavy waves down her back when left untamed. Her eyes are a bright, piercing evergreen color peeking out beneath dark lashes, while her smiles are gregarious and easily given.

(Sorrel is in her third trimester of pregnancy and is gently but notably showing.)

Personality: Sorrel is a charismatic woman with a large presence. Though she's athletically slender there's so much force of personality to her that she seems to fill up more space than she actually does. Gregarious, charming, and just a step away from being cavalier. Lady Sorrel is a woman full of laughter, smiles, and joy. But her temper burns just as bright as the rest of her. She's passionate and hot blooded. She's a fierce and almost foolishly brave woman who loves to perform; sing and act.

Background: Lady Sorrel Wyrmguard is the middle sibling of a cousin-branch of the Wyrmguards. A second cousin to the ruling Marquessa-- Dominique --but also related in this way to members of the Valardin royal family. Unlike many, she is not at all defined by middle sibling syndrome. She's vastly different from her siblings; vibrant of personality, but darker in coloring (taking after their father).

Born many years after Reiker and a scant few before Clover she's always been a bright, charismatic girl. Drawn to the performing arts-- in particular singing. Her next love has always been the blade and martial combat.

As a child she would go to sword practice and sing as she swung her blade, earning her the informal nickname/title of 'the Bladesong of Blancbier'. At first it was something of a teasing, almost mocking title. For she was no doubt considered strange as a child and young woman for how much she sang while practicing her martial skills.

That changed a year or two before the Siege of Arx when she lead a battalion of Blancbier soldiers against a force of raiders who were attempting to lay a mini-siege on a small farming village that fell within the border of the Blancbier March. They say the battle was turning against the Wyrmguard units due to overwhelming forces, but that Lady Sorrels voice cut through their despair and lifted them up, and they won the day inspired by her voice.

Since then she has honing her skill as a leader, and a commander.

Relationship Summary


Sibling:
  • Clover - The best sister a girl could have.
  • Name Summary
    Adora A princess singer who married for love. More than I ever needed or wanted to know. I don't like her.
    Aerandir One of the Wyrmguards that I have heard quite a bit of in recent memory, though regretfully our first meeting was a fleeting one. She seems cordial and pleasing, even so.
    Aethan If someone is going to interrupt a conversation, Princess Sorrel is better than most.
    Agatha My cousin's wife - she seems outgoing and friendly. Happy! The Mourning Isles are not allowed to make her dour!
    Ainsley She has a voice as clear and as sharp as a blade. I can see why she is the 'Bladesong of Blancbier'.
    Alarissa A lovely addition to the Wyrmguards.
    Alessandro Very informative, not to mention a beautiful voice.
    Alexis Lady Sorrel Wyrmguard has always been someone I've felt a kinship with. She's tall and majestic-looking, and I love her temperament. And she's got a lovely voice, too!
    Apollis I wouldn't accuse her of being lovely or charming.
    Arn A Wyrmguard singer who apparently does some fighting on the side. The first meeting didn't go well. What does, though?
    Astraea Yes! Another lady knight, my best friend the Bladesong. She's cool, collected, and gorgeous. Anyone who meets her knows she a powerful force of good. I can't wait to stand beside her and battle evil together. It's like a girl's dream come true.
    Berenice She sings. Totally normally! How delightful. Totally normal singing.
    Bianca My warrior of a cousin. She astounds me with her capabilities and the devotion of her faith. She is keen minded, beautiful beyond words and holds a warmth we are all blessed to bask in. A natural leader in any scenario I've seen her placed in. I could speak of her merits endlessly...
    Cadenza My kind of woman! Hopefully I'll get to hang out with her more.....perhaps at the masque.
    Caith She is a knight! She is so brave and good and fierce and /true/! And she knows so much STUFF! Gosh, she is amazing. It's like she's something out of a storybook, come to life off the page. Incredible!
    Carita A beautiful soul to go along with the beauty of her exterior, and like the sword she carries, has a carefully hewn sharp edge she might just use if you're not careful. She might use the sword if you're not careful, too.
    Caspian A woman with a brilliant plan. I hope it comes to fruition!
    Christine A dear with a good expertise in using pointy thingies. She seems fun and amiable.
    Cirroch A Oathlands Lady from the mountains! Like myself she feels pride in the rugged lands she has come from. I could see a friendship quickly forming with her.
    Clover My vibrant, joyous older sister. I love her so dearly and we have so much fun together. There's no one else in the world as uplifting as Sorrel Wyrmguard!
    Clover Sorrel has always been my hero! She's always uplifted and encouraged me-- never once putting me down or mocking me when I tripped, wasn't tall enough, or had troubles. She always encouraged me to find what I was good at, or to find another way to do something. Being around her is like being bathed in sunlight.
    Coraline Well and truly family, she never ceases to amaze me the skills she shows be it singing, fighting, or organizing.
    Cristoph Sorrel, Clover's sister! A bit taller than her. She seems like a bright and cheerful sort, likes to hit things, likes puppies, really can't find anything to argue with there. I'm sure we'll be dragging her down to the house soon enough.
    Cullen I don't think I've met her before today, but she's got strength to match her lovely singing voice! Truly fascinating...how have I not run into her before? I imagine I shall again though, given that we...were not successful. Quite the asset to any team, to be sure.
    Darren I like you, you got moxy and optimism. And you'd tell me if I was losing my hair.
    Delilah Brilliant. Knowledgeable. Absolutely inspirational. I find myself wondering how she knows all the information she does, and all this galvanizes me to find more ways to work with her to further her efforts. She's phenomenal.
    Denica Saw her holding Astrid, she has quite a way with children and seems kind. I hope she finds the time to bring herself around the Thrax Estate more often in the future.
    Denica One of my favorite models I've ever had the pleasure to paint. She's married into the family now. Family portrait next? Either way, I'm so excited to have her in the family.
    Derovai She was given a good idea; I hope she realizes it.
    Dominique Why is she going to war while pregnant? I guess it's the Wyrmguard in her, but it doesn't surprise me one bit. Sorrel has always been strong and has done an admirable job representing our house in my absence from the city of Arx.
    Domonico A tall woman, worthy of hailing from the City of Swords! I can only pray to the Gods that I only meet her on the battlefield as an ally, not a foe, as I doubt I'd survive the experience.
    Echo There's a certain charm to Lady Sorrel that is almost immediately recognized. She's so incredibly warm, friendly, and encouraging. Much like you'd expect from close family.
    Edain The Bladesong of the Wyrmguard is the dramatic presence you would expect her to be. I did not get to speak to her long, but she congradulated me on my wife and I expecting our first, and she said she was going to compose a song. I'm entirely certain I am not diserving of a song, but it was an entirely kind gesture. I hope to get the chance not to just hear her sing songs of others adventures, but her own one day.
    Eddard A lovely singer, and /goodness me/ very pregnant.
    Enoch A beautiful Thraxian Princess whom I sparred and sadly lost to at the Training Center. A remarkable and kind woman with a friendly demeanor. I'd happily spend mor etime with her.
    Estil Somehow she manages to maintain a certain degree of mystery despite being rather open and blunt. Our personalities seem to mesh very well. She is exceedingly admirable, and I have the profoundest respects for her.
    Eurion All charming and lovely - I am honored and humbled.
    Fairen To note that Lady Sorrel hardly seems dissuaded from her faith in the Gods speaks volumes of her.
    Faye An interesting woman with fascinating obsessions. I believe she would be an excellent research partner, and I hope we can work together on mutual interests in the future.
    Fiora She started to set me off at first, but she's Clover's sister so she must be halfway decent.
    Galen My beautiful wife, love of my life and mother of my child. Is there anything else to say about her? Oh, yeah, she sings beautifully, and it wreaks havoc in our enemies' ranks. It's pretty badass.
    Galen I am the luckiest man in the entire Compact, and lest I forget she will remind me frequently.
    Gareth Quite possibly the founding member of the Friendly Guard. The tireless men and women of Arx who ensure that all nobles are not too grumpy. She threatened me with Tikva once. For just the time alone that might be eaten by such a consequence, I shall endeavor to try to smile a little harder in her presence.
    Gianna A legendary bard. One hopes to aspire to her level of fame.
    Giulio A delightful exchange of knowledge. It is rare that I stumble upon such knowledge in casual form. I see the start of a lovely scholarly exchange.
    Harald Said to be a Warsong. Perhaps she will drive back the blood madness and help us toward victory, or perhaps she will be seasick and drown in her own vomit.
    Harlex She fights with the grace of the finest dancers I've seen and is as fierce a foe as she is beautiful to behold. One of those rare pleasures a man don't soon forget.
    Ian Never a dull moment.
    Jacque Lady Sorrel is a Bladesong, which is very interesting, because I enjoy the prospect of the combination of a warrior who composes songs. It is rousing, it helps morale, and most certainly, I think she and I can work together as I aspire to become a chronicler of battles, and she composes her songs.
    Jaenelle My brother's wife. His eyes light up when he sees her, his smile goes on forever as he speaks of her. She is a strong and capable woman who will certainly keep him on his toes. I am proud to call her my sister.
    Jarel The beautiful Princess Sorrel Thrax has told me of a gift she and some others possess called the spellsinging. It's quite clearly an incredible gift. No wonder they call her the Bladesong! Not only can she spellsing, she can also fight!
    Jasher A good warrior and better singer. Though a woman, I am confident she will be a fine Champion, or anything else she puts her ambitions towards.
    Jeffeth She seems a very good Princess. Married to Galen who is a good man. I respect her deeply. EXCEPT SHE TOLD ME I COULDNT HAVE A DRAGON IN THE QUESTION GAME AND THEN I SAID NO ONE ELSE COULD CHOOSE DRAGONS AND SHE CHOSE DRAGONS. Someday my heart will recover. Just not right now.
    Jordan A very happy Princess of Thrax who seems to accept her husband's habits and find them endearing to her. Love is an interesting thing to watch, sometimes. All the same, she is earnest and sincere, and that's an appreciable quality, always.
    Joscelin Young. Was I ever that young? Energetic and excited, eager to be pleased and easy to please as well. I'm hoping I've a life-long customer here, she's a delight to work with.
    Juliana Compassionate, level headed and in love with my favorite cousin. Is there anything else that needs said?
    Karadoc A Thrax Princess as passionate about social justice as she is about the arts. A true gem.
    Killian The voice of an angel, when I thought I was going to die, she lifted my spirits. I am so sorry that she was wounded, but she showed incredible skill, definitely a force to be reckoned upon.
    Laric While we haven't had the opportunity to work together (and Gods know I only speak with people I'm working with), she's shown a predisposition towards spoiling Salvadore, and she's Tikva's friend, and she's Leona's sister in law. We're about as close to being acquaintances as you can possibly be without actually being acquaintances.
    Leola The Bladesinger. She has stood with my lady before, and will do so again. I envy her gift, though I have nothing but awe for the beauty and truth she brings to this world with every breath
    Leonidas Cute son she got there. Apparently wedded to my cousin, Galen. Not a bad lass at all.
    Lianne Bold enough to ask after blood magic, to speak of its ease in a public gathering. Curious.
    Lilia A gracious lady. The Telmarch's loss is Thrax's gain, one preeminently poised to aide the Compact in a most peculiar manner.
    Lora She possesses a most remarkable talent for organizing information for memorable delivery; I look forward to hearing the rest of her songs.
    Lorenzo Of course princesses are charming, as a rule. She promised to teach me how to dance. I wonder if one day I ask her to, will she remember me at all?
    Luca It takes one heck of a woman to put up with a man like that. Shave that thing off his upper lip, already!
    Lys She seems like the kind of woman suited for motherhood. All aglow with new life and shit... She's also got a really pretty voice.
    Mailys A charismatic and sociable woman who is impressive all around, may we meet again.
    Margerie Reigna's oousin? Well that is a good first impression in and of itself. But she is charming and a chatterbox and I look forward to hearing her sing, to picking her brain about bits of lore she might have hidden in all the old songs she must know. So warm and welcoming!
    Merek I met her along with Astraea near the Ambassador Salon. A nice person, and seems to be respectful enough. Don't know too much about them, but definitely someone that I would not mind having more conversations with sometime.
    Meriah A singing magical princess. But maybe I dreamed her up. Seems like the kind of fairytale I'd dream up!
    Naomi She's a lady and she knows Lord Ian. She has a tiny, ridiculous goat. Does it give milk, or fleece of some sort? It's a creature with no purpose. I hope she has someone to clean up after it when it messes all over her floors.
    Niklas A truly gifted singer with a tremendous talent for teaching. Helped make me the banjo player I am today.
    Nuala A seahawk: sharp to close her wings and strike on an opportunity. She is impossible to miss and a sight to behold in action.
    Olivia One of those who aided Princess Tikva at the goop-covered statue, succeeding where my prior efforts with the Archlector had failed. It proved very interesting speaking with her, and it would seem prudent to do so more often, along with her friend Lady Lucita and the Princess.
    Orazio A lover of music and of the gods. Very much a Wyrmguard lady, complete with the weaponry. She seems pleasant and thoughtful, and Orazio enjoys talking to her.
    Oswyn Princess Sorrel seems very curious. Er, not odd - she seems like she possesses a fair amount of curiosity. For learning. And research. She's very knowledgeable! And not odd.
    Petal Very beautiful in face, voice and mannerisms. She is quite welcoming and so self-confident.
    Pharamond Watching her move is far from watching dance - it is pure art. The only way to describe the first impression would be awe.
    Quenia Lady Sorrel Wyrmguard seems like a good woman who doesn't turn away from a challenge, and doesn't easily embarrass. These are both good qualities to have. It will be nice to get to know her a bit better.
    Rinel A Lady with a gorgeous singing voice--and she's offered to teach me how to sing! And to research songs with her! I wonder what her opinions are on dancing...
    Rohran A Princess of Thrax, and apparently a cousin to my Countess, Reigna. I know little of Thrax, save for what the scholars teach, but that she is family to dear Reigna helps to endear her to me in no small way. Through conversation, I've come to learn her husband also has a sense of humor. Perhaps I'll have occasion to run into him as well, next time. If not, I can't say running into this Princess a second time would be anything but a pleasure.
    Rook Lady Sorrel's name has of course been spoken more often than not during the call of banners in advance of war, what with her efforts to rouse troops through the medium of song. A long history of audible inspiration exists, especially for the Faithful, so it is only to be admired. Now, of course, there's a rumour with good backing indicating she'll be leaving House Valardin's fealty for House Thrax's. A shame, truly. Nonetheless, perhaps the Serpents will be taught a few extra manners with further good influencers in their midst.
    Rosalie We've met a few times now, she still can't remember my name, but its alright. I forget things too sometimes, so I can hardly complain. Still, she's very kind and I hope that we can be friends! Gods know I could use a few friends in the Thrax fealty now.
    Roxana A duelist as it appears, and a dreadfully beautiful one at that. Watching her makes it rather like watching dancing, only there are blades involved.
    Ryhalt Clover's sister and someone of talent, both in the field with our excursions to the Ile de Canneberges and also in performance, and quite prone to making a room brighter. She is going to be an aunt.
    Samael The new Thrax Princess. She's glowing.
    Sanya The princess is warm and easy to get along with and I'm grateful for the knowledge and skill I've acquired while knowing her.
    Saoirse My god, she knows a lot of things.
    Sasha A very helpful Princess who I am quite glad reached out to me. I look forward to future investigations with her.
    Sebastian My cousin's wife. I don't have much opportunity to spend time with my Thrax cousins and family. I should seek to fix that.
    Sparte Not sure if she was ignoring me because I'm common or because she was that caught up in things. Wish her well I guess.
    Stygia Level headed, a bit full of herself, so I mean - your regular run o' the mill Silk! But I mean, tolerable and seemingly a good mum so she has more than her fair share of redeemable qualities
    Teagan Not just lovely compositions, but also voice, and the ability to command the attention of an entire crowd. It is a topic that could be terribly dull if presented in mere word and tome, but instead has been given dramatic life by this woman in a way to draw full crowds.
    Theron I like Lady Sorrel. She's merry, especially when she fights, and I enjoy double entendres whether or not they are intentional. She's got a way with words!
    Thorley The Soungstress that is to marry a Prince. Spritely. Fast. And confident in her abilities to make her Prince sing for her.
    Turo The new Princess is gracious and, frankly, a delight. I look forward to her meeting Arcelia - they'll get along well, I suspect.
    Valdemar She seems an honorable sort, and moves well in armor.
    Vayne She seems an earnest Princess, intent on trying to help others. I hope she finds the outlet for that desire. It can so quickly overrule our judgement, and I would hate to see her miss the opportunities that balance can bring.
    Vercyn Princess Sorrel is unlike most of the princesses I know. She is an administrator and planner, not one of those, in her words, "Idle princes and princesses with nothing better to do". Then again, she is not a princess born into that role, but still quite a refreshing perspective.
    Victus She loves Galen. Galen loves her. I ain't seen much besides her singing skills, but that one time she danced with my wife with the... butterflies was it? It was nice. She ain't so bad.
    Vincenzo Umbra over seasilk and aquamarine. Bubbles. There is an airiness to this one, but substance underneath. She projects joy, but she is clearly a scholar and a bard of some sort. Born to be a Princess, clearly, surprisingly unobnoxious despite claiming an Oathland's heritage.
    Volcica A fine taste in armor! I wouldn't mind getting to know her better.
    Wylla Truly gifted, perhaps even in the spiritual sense! She has the loveliest poems and songs, though she seems far too kind a soul to make a very frightening dragon.
    Zalika A woman with a good sense of mind. I don't blame her hesistance to swimming in the ocean with Gyre lurking about now.
    Zoey She's passionate, knowledgable, and dedicated. Thrax is lucky to have her.
