Description: Stories of exotic beauties found beyond the Saffron Chain pale in comparison to the real thing; Sina Izetta, of unimposing height and lean frame, possesses a capitvating presence with her fluid grace of movement and quiet, thoughtful demeanor. Her skin is tinted with a pale olive cast, skimming over shapely curves and complemented by her dark hair. Those tresses spill from the crown of her head past her hips in dark, silken waves ending in smoky black tendrils, matching the arch of her delicate eyebrows. It is her eyes that are the most intriguing. The irises are pale, like liquid silver framed within an iron mold; moonlight on water beneath a fringe of long dark lashes. Keen and cat-like, they overshadow the high cheekbones and full lips that make up the rest of her features.
Personality: Many people who meet Sina believe the handmaiden to be mute; she talks rarely when outside of Princess Donella's presence, and not at all when in the presence of the men of House Thrax. Obedient, polite, she exemplifies traits desired in servants found around a nobles' home - in public, at the very least.
Those allowed to see beyond the facade she puts forth for the benefit of House Thrax know Sina to be a bold young woman, still quiet but much more prone to mischief and entertainment. She's a lover of dancing and song, and an adept artist who spends much of her free time painting scenes of myth and fantasy.
Background: Sina Izetta is the only child of long-dead Darya Izetta, captain of the Kraken's Mistress, and a thrall upon the ship named Pecha, who was sold off when her daughter was only a toddler. As the captain's daughter, she was a veritable princess aboard the ship, resented by much of the crew and taught many a skill meant for young ladies on the mainlands; she learned quickly the arts she was exposed to as well as those she wasn't.
When the Kraken's Mistress was sunk by the vessels of House Thrax, Sina was taken in - not as a member of the family, but as a member of the staff. At the tender age of ten, she worked within the kitchens, eventually drawn up from the position of house servant to serve Princess Donella at the whim of the late Elton Thrax. Always known to be a quiet girl, she grew alongside the future Voice, six years her junior and readily attached into her later years.
With the Queen's death, and the presence of Princess Donella within Arx, she's gotten her first true taste of the mainland city.
|Alarissa||She served Donella and now it seems she will serve me and I think that we will get along delightfully.|
|Aleksei||I'll be so curious to see where her path takes her.|
|Alessia||Sister Sina was very helpful to me when I expressed interest in joining the Scholars of Vellichor. I'm glad to have such a welcoming reception and hope to interact more with her in the future.|
|Ariel||What a charming and wise woman. After weeks of turmoil she has laid most of Ariel's fears to rest and given her purpose to try and help where she can in these troubled times.|
|Bianca||Oh, sweet Sina. Of all the individuals I have met in Arx her dedication to the gods is unparalleled. I have never heard a poor word of her and our interactions though sparse until recently have always brought me comfort despite the content of conversation. She is a prism that reflects the light of the gods in a myriad of wondrous colors and she is meant for great things.|
|Brigida||The best of us. Watch this one.|
|Carita||A clearly caring, warm and delicately put together woman, with a spark behind her eyes that denotes her wisdom and intellect. Certainly someone to keep an eye on.|
|Delilah||That sword is gorgeous. It isn't half as beautiful or sharp as the mind of Sister Sina, who can understand the nuances of a situation and present ideas with such elegance and grace. A marvelous asset to the Scholars, she is likewise simply delightful on many levels.|
|Derovai||A clever young woman who likes ships and sails and not-so-fanciful tales, also routinely underestimated. A useful contact to have, and someone who takes my demeanor in stride, calm and observant. Worth continuing the association, I think, though hopefully she'll learn to like whiskey.|
|Elgana||I see in this woman a kind soul that looks to do the best she can for those around her. I believe there is much good she will be able to do and look forward to seeing such from her.|
|Faye||It's funny that you can look and look for some information, give up, and then you'll stumble across it completely by accident. I am very glad I was able to meet with this woman and exchange information. I hope to be able to work with her more in the future.|
|Harper||She seems real nice. I don't have a name for her yet, but it'll come in time I bet. She's real shy though... hope I don't spook her!|
|Iseulet||I don't think I've met a more apt person at making my head absolutely /swim/. I don't know how she does it! Still, I look forward to getting to know her more in the future. I have a feeling there's a whole lot more mystery here than meets the eye.|
|Jasher||Then handmaiden, now Archscholar. How far she's sailed. How much farther will she sail?|
|Jeffeth||What a nice lady, in service to Alarissa Thrax. I hope to meet her again someday.|
|Jordan||Knowledgeable Scholar and handmaiden, and someone who has a cheerful personality. We'll definitely be speaking again soon.|
|Kaldur||Though Aleksei didn't take to her encouragement, but I hope she keeps that kindness close. We'll all need it in the coming days, I fear.|
|Kenna||What an agreeable and go with the flow woman. I think I'd happily be in her company at any party.|
|Magpie||Magpie tried to get her to talk dirt about her princess she serves. She wouldn't. Props.|
|Marcas||A mysterious woman, the likes of which I've never seen. Eyes like moonlight on water, and a keen and open mind about everything. I don't know where she is from, and she doesn't seem like anyone I have met before. I hope to talk with her more, given that she is receptive to many strange topics and our Northern beliefs.|
|Merek||A Prelate that I've met. She seems kind as well as knowledgable. I need to make friends with more Scholars as well.|
|Mirari||This woman seems to be an artist, and a handmaiden. She is very beautiful, and seems to have a path mapped out for her future. I envy that in her.|
|Morrighan||A scholarly young woman, once Donella's handmaiden, not at all what I expected from one of the Thraxsworn. Very polite and well-mannered, intelligent and has a shared curious nature, especially with subjects associated with Mangata. Perhaps she's someone I'll be able to further connect with in the future.|
|Niklas||The new Archscholar is also a fantastic painter!|
|Petal||she seems very thoughtful and noticed how tired I am and is patient and thoughtful.|
|Prisila||She's intelligent and wise beyond her years but that goes without saying. Virtue of one's nature, it could be assumed, but it's beyond that. She was very interesting in a realm full of uninteresting people, to speak bluntly. I look forward to future encounters and was honored to meet her.|
|Reese||Well spoken, appealing and intelligent. She also has patience and grace.|
|Rook||It has been a long time since Rook has seen or spoke with Sina and she remains, as ever, very quiet.|
|Saedrus||I may not have had the time to talk to her more, sadly. I heard her laugh more than once during the evening and it is a sweet sound. One that laughs so brightly, so freely, can only be a charming soul. A shame I did not have the time to speak with her more.|
|Sasha||The prelate is very knowledgable and kind. I am glad to have her as a fellow scholar and I look forward to all the lost references we can uncover together.|
|Sparte||A fellow Thraxian, Scholar, and Explorer. It seems like we have a great many reasons we should know one another better, I'm sure time will deliver on that opportunity.|
|Stygia||A tiny Sister I met at the Training Center. Appears to be droll, boring. Then again, looks can be deceiving. Then again, maybe they aren't! Maybe time will tell.|
|Sunaia||A new Godsworn from what I heard (I wasn't eavesdropping, shush, you were eavesdropping), one who seems quiet but pleasant. Peaceful influences are as valuable these days as fierce one and that seems to be the mold she's drawn from.|
|Turo||A young woman with a passion for art! I'm thrilled she enjoyed the academy and hope she finds another opportunity to return.|
|Vanora||The second Isles-born Godsworn that I have ever known, which makes her automatically intriguing.|
|Vayne||This is a woman who made an unforgettable first impression, and that is an understatement.|
|Venturo||From handmaiden to Godsworn, her ability to be a rapt audience and a carefully listening ear will serve her well in her journey ahead.|
|Vitalis||I met Prelate Sina in the Archives. She was wearing leathers and a blade holding forth on esoteric topics of great interest. A Scholar to aspire to.|
