Lady Tesha Telmar
There's no such thing as luck. Chance, favor, odds...luck? All words used by those without the wherewithall to make a plan and properly prepare for what's to come.
Description: Tesha's beauty is found in the woman's graceful, purposeful manner. In the sense of deliberateness to each and every movement or gesture, no matter how small. There is an intelligence behind those dark eyes of hers, colored the shade of a deep blue sky just before a storm. A methodical, practiced sort of look that conveys the impression that every scene before her striking gaze has already been examined and considered twice over. Tesha's dark hair falls just below her shoulderblades, usually kept back in a neat, symmetrical braid that drapes along the nape of her neck. She carries herself with poise, beautiful in both form and manner.
(Tesha has a scar at her temple that is newly healed, but it won't be going away it seems.)
Personality: Independent. Headstrong. Confident. Poised. All words Tesha's become accustomed to hearing attributed to her for as long as she can remember. She gives off an immediate aura of experience, conveying the sense that she's seen more than her young age would have allowed. Courteous and polite, as a proper Telmar noblewoman ought to be, Tesha shows an uncommon ambition and drive when she applies her considerable intelligence to solving problems of politics, strategy, or economics. She's fiercely loyal to the Telmar name, and to the sense of duty that comes from being a member of the Valardin's strong right hand.
Background:     Tesha may have been born the second child of Tanya Telmar, but she has played the part of the protective elder sibling for as long as she can remember. After the passing of her father at a young age, her mother became a recluse, refusing to attend family meetings and cutting off virtually all social interaction. And so it was, at barely twelve years of age, that Tesha assumed the role of primary caretaker for her siblings. The young Telmar adroitly managed the family's affairs and business, all under the guise of providing direction from her pining mother. There was scarcely time to mourn her mother's passing, some three years later, as the family's affairs now formally passed to the responsibility of the young Telmar noblewoman.
For the next several years, Tesha quickly garnered attention among the rest of the Telmars for her skill and competence in managing her family's affairs, assuming increasing levels of responsibility in managing business on the House's behalf. With her older brother always trying to hide his nose in a book, Tesha took a more hands-on approach to learning the intricacies of businesses and alliances, skillfully weaving economic webs and trade agreements that turned the Telmarch from merely a strategic military holding to a prosperous hub for trade and business in the Oathlands.
As the first members of the family began departing the Telmarch for Arx, Tesha was among the first to join up with the Telmar contingent headed for the capital. She knows there's no chance her brother makes it a week without her around to keep an eye on him, and is eager to turn her mind to extending the family's economic reach to the economics of the capital city. She's confident that her skills and expertise will be gratefully received by the residents of the Tower.
|Aethan||Returned to Arx -- a good thing for the city. She looks very well.|
|Amund||An Oathlander lady with very Oathlander sensibilities but a captivating way to do things.|
|Apollo||Every bit what I expect an Oathlander lady to be like - kind, gently-spoken. And my dog likes her, too. What can I do?|
|Eddard||A wonderfully warm and vibrant Lady of Telmar. If I were to ever marry for the prospect of love...|
|Erasmus||Such warmth and kindness to a frozen old sea dog! I'll be glad to take advantage of her offer to show me around the city sometime soon, hopefully!|
|Gaston||The pressures of leadership in these times of incredible change are carried so well on the Lady Tesha's shoulders. There is much to look up to in her grace, and I hope our Houses always remain close.|
|Ian||A lot more on her shoulders, now.|
|Martino||The fine Lady Telmar is so considerate to ask on others and ask about their recovery. A good friend does that and, in time, I shall hope to have one in the Lady Tesha.|
|Miranda||She ran the Gauntlet and I came in second! Ran into her again at the Rite of Gloria and she's a most splendid and pleasant lady to talk with! It was lovely to see her again outside of the Gauntlet itself.|
|Norwood||She has a heart of vibrancy, but seems worn down by the cascade of noble marriage.|
|Petal||Charming and very thoughtfully aware of the little people too!|

|Rosalind||So fun to go on adventures with!|
|Rysen||My cousin on my mother's side. She seems a good leader and organizer. Considering what the former Telmar Duke thought of me, she's surprisingly kind.|
|Sabella||Lady Tesha has a fine head on her shoulders and is a wonderful spokesperson for her house! And I can deifintely say everyone is rooting for her when it comes to marriages!|
|Sanya||With the union between our houses, I really ought to get to know more of House Telmar. Especially having met such a lovely member.|
|Sirius||A collected and responsible Lady whose ways of elaboration I've grown hastily jealous of. A grand addition to the women and men of the March, who I'm sure will too help me when fate lays its many cards, in due time.|
|Talwyn||I heard she was called the Delight of Telmar and, after meeting her, I know why. Clever with the coin, grand with the plans. Who knows where she will set her limits on the great journey ahead.|

|Thea||she has strong shoulders. I can see it|
|Tyrus||A hard working Telmar, I met her when she revealed herself to be human in requiring some respite from her work. While we did not speak long, I look forward to the next meeting.|
|Vitalis||The way she paints what she wants, I could almost want it for myself. Almost. Save one very important fact.|
|Zoey||If your arms is as strong as your heart, then I pity any man who stands against you.|
