Description: Slender but shapely, everything about Lucita suggests luxuriance, from the long fall of artfully arranged black curls to the flair from her dramatic reflected in her wardrobe. Her skin is a warm-toned dusky gold, frequently accented by smoky eye makeup, with a tendency to freckle around her fine straight nose most often masked by careful application of obscuring golden powder. The whiskey-gold hue of her amber eyes lends a sultry air to the slow glide of her smile in the spread of rose-dark lips.

Personality: A warm young lady with a good deal of intelligence, grace, and a remarkable quantity of patience, Lucita's charm is a well-honed instrument. She listens very carefully to other people to help them bring out their best selves, primarily because this, she feels, is how best to insinuate herself into their lives. Socially clever in an intriciate way, Lucita's layered reserve makes the real Lucita more elusive. Her true passion is always her music, and what truth there is in her shines in her face when she melts into playing.

Background: The second daughter a lesser line of the March of Granato, Lucita Igniseri grew up in the shadow of a twin sister whose role in life seemed to be to cause trouble. It's actually hard to quantify for certain whether she is the younger for certain, but she was removed from her mother's belly first when she had to be cut open so that the children could be removed. Lucita was a good girl, quiet and inclined to introspection and very focused on her lessons; she grew to be that way in no small part because her sister took so much time and energy from anyone and everyone around them, absorbing friends and teachers like a very bright-eyed black hole.

Lucita's true talents were music and song. Her ear was perfect early on and her fascination with the emotional expressiveness of instruments led her to become wholly absorbed in performances -- other people's when she was young, but after her training really expanded in earnest in response to her proclivity, her own. While her sister ran around being a terror and eventually grew into her own as a naval captain in her own right for the Igniseri-run fleet of Granato, Lucita studied music, learned her instruments, and focused on her lessons, and her courtly graces, and on the ways and methods of beauty and persuasion.

Her ambitions were quiet ones, but they always came to this: to prove that she is the best, regardless of how much more flamboyant and dramatic Ariella might be.

Marquis Vincere Igniseri appointed Lucita his voice, having her remain in Granato to oversee things there. After he and his twin Pietro were killed during the siege 1006, Quenia become Marquessa and summoned Lucita to Arx in late winter of 1006 to help her. In 1007 she joined with Princess Tikva and Lady (now Princess) Sorrel in forming a choir that some say had remarkable effects on the field. The need for being able to defend herself became apparent as friends, her liege encouraged this. She tried to learn a few necessary basics to help her not die so quickly if attacked.

She was betrothed to Lord Estaban Saik, a matter both of politics, alliances, protection, trade agreements and strengthening ties to the Saik's liege house, Malvici as well as growing affection between the two. After Baroness Kima went missing, suspected dead, Estaban became Baron and adopted former Baron Eos's son Vomas. They married Jan. 18, 1008 and she continued to serve as Igniseri Voice until the death of her husband May 22, 1008, killed in action at Setarco leaving Lucita a pregnant widow and Baroness-Regent for the unborn Saik heir. She was deployed with the military at Setarco to sing as a part of the choir. After the war Archduchess Elyena presented her a place amid the Lycene Order of the White Lily, limited to 13 living recipients.

  • Name Summary
    Aahana A lovely baroness who is eager to learn my native tongue. I wonder if she could help me become better at the dances they do here within the compact.
    Adalyn Surprisingly knowledgeable! Knowing who I am certainly takes that, unless she's really into keeping track of anyone handy with a sword.
    Adora A Baroness that's free with her wine, lost her husband, and seems to like her twins. I don't like her.
    Agostino A resilient woman from the sound of things, with good taste in wine. House Saik is in good hands, by all appearances.
    Ahmar A baroness from the south, and apparently a friend of the bards guild. I am sorry she had to give her bird away, but cats will be cats.
    Alecstazi A charming little thing. She clearly has her own opinions but seemed willing to admit her ignorance and listen, which are two of the wisest things a person can do.
    Alessia A friend to my twin. I've heard my sister speak so well of her and I'm happy to see she truly has good taste in companions. Hopefully we will have more chances to get to know one another.
    Alexio The Baroness of Saik; a woman of great taste for the finer things, even if so far they seem but only a dream to her. I like her!
    Alrec She has an amazing animal. Very well trained and loyal. All signs of a noble.
    Amanda A thoughtful, caring ruler.
    Amari Always well composed, affable and graceful, the baroness isn't someone to dread and avoid at social functions.
    Angelo Very polite and kind, and has quite the interesting protege. Seems like a good person to know since she's connected to the man marrying Juliet. Plus, quite gracious and welcoming.
    Arcadia Apparently my southern doppelganger. We will have to adventure together sometime!
    Ariella The half of us that got all the reliability. I should have been there for her over the last few months. I may never forgive myself. Fortunately, there's still alcohol to help out.
    Ariella My one and only twin sister. Still as smart and charming as I remember. It's great to be back.
    Arman A woman of kindness and poise. She has been kind enough to hold company with me at a variety of events and I always look forward to encountering her.
    Astyr A baroness of the Lyceum with a large but well-behaved hound. She seems well-informed and polite.
    Bianca She has faced so much yet perseveres despite the trials that would have crushed lesser men. A loving mother and a kind (and talented) woman who I am blessed to know.
    Bliss I keep running into the Baroness Saik, but tonight is the first night we really got a chance to say more than a few words in passing. She remains in good spirits and fun - I will definitely have to take her dancing again.
    Braden A Lycene treasure, one who cares deeply for her friends. Let's hope she can help.
    Brady So beautiful. A paragon of class and elegance. A widower and a mother. I'm certain she has hidden wisdom bought from experience.
    Brigida It's so good to reconnect with this special Lady again. The work she has done to reclaim nature from horrendous circumstances should never be forgotten.
    Calandra A wise woman, with a very large heart, and a brain full of knowledge. I think that we could become good friends, with a shared love of music. I do admire her brave heart.
    Calaudrin The woman offered to get me some whiskey after my fall. Good traveling companion to have around when you go tumbling many, many, MANY feet down a ridge.
    Cambria Her talent for music was a lovely surprise. The perceptive questions she asked were even more so. I hope we will become friends over time.
    Cirroch The days where we'd sit in the garden and the three of us would talk were fun. Hopefully next time you can bring your two children along
    Cullen I'm glad I finally got to hear the Baroness play, her talent and passion are undeniable - and her grace and charm, likewise. To have all of that, and yet also to run a barony and make it thrive, she has to be quite the impressive individual.
    Cullen Speaking with the Baroness again showed me her sense of humor and a glimpse of her feather wearing life in younger days, but also what she takes seriously as Baroness. Seems to be a very well-balanced person with wit and charm, I look forward to talking to her again.
    Cybele Baroness Lucita Saik. Is a good woman. And very wise and knowledgeable. Lagoma's flame is helping her grow in the crucible of change.
    Dante Though it has been two years, I recognize the same passion for song that finds such kinship with my own. An excellent meeting.
    Delfina This Baroness is enjoyable company, and she has excellent taste in wine. I certainly hope we will have more chances to speak in the future.
    Delilah Such knowledge she has, and such confidence in that information. I am so deeply grateful that she proved willing to deepen the breadth of my understanding on certain historical and social topics.
    Denica Much less pregnant than the last time I saw her.
    Domonico A Baroness Regent who has worked alongside my cousin the Duchess. Listens to good advice. Appreciates ships and the sea in spite of how her husband died.
    Dora I met the Baroness at the Black Fox. She seemed a bit quiet at first, but then she agreed to whiskey and truth or dare. I approve!
    Emilia Her selfless desire to defend her people is something all should strive for. As someone who also seeks to defend the people, I consider her a fellow comrade in arms and resonate with her devotion.
    Emmelline She seems very nice, and pleasant to converse with. I hope we might become friends down the line.
    Evander The Baroness strikes me as a woman willing to sacrifice a great deal for others. The things she done are both admirable and unmeasurable in their impact, and I am glad to have met her.
    Evangeline A sweet tempered Baroness who apparently blushes at the thought of the word 'body'. She and I will have to meet more regularly.
    Evaristo One wouldn't think it looking at her - that /outfit/ made me drool a little - but she fights bears. Could anyone be more perfect?
    Faruq She is the soul of grace and charm one would expect from a Lycene Baroness. Which makes me wonder if she is also as affluent with poisons too. Hmmm. I shall have to be careful around this one until I know which way the tide flows.
    Faye A serious woman, one who seems to carry sorrow with her. But she also has courage and wisdom, as well as the trust of others. I hope we'll be able to speak together again.
    Fiora She is of the Saik family. A Malvici vassal. That's all.
    Gawain Put me in position to possibly get to compete for her. She is lovely and clever and hopefully a skilled team mate for our contests.
    Gianna The Baroness is a gifted musician and singer; the College is honoured to have her as a member and instructor.
    Gilroy Perfectly pleasant baroness and songstress.
    Gretchen She makes a hell of a wine!
    Hadrian A Voice of House Igniseri. She, along with the Marquessa, are recently arrived to the city. They've already began to make steps toward becoming greatly immersed in the intrigues of the city - which means dinner parties, meetings, drinks and conversation, conversations and drinks, and much more. She seems to be settling in well enough and I'm sure within only a few short weeks she'll be immersed in Arx culture and struggling to come up for air. She's also quite the talented musician. You don't see that often among the nobility or at least that they frequently showcase, so that's certainly an interesting fact about her.
    Harlex She seems an amicable baroness. Keen with a knife.
    Ingrid A young woman with what I believe is a good head on her shoulders. She has knowledge of and a desire to learn very practical and useful skills. Some of which I had not thought of myself.
    Jan Polite, seems to know her booze. Glad I stumbled in here, this why I have the drink and think walks.
    Jarel Lucita is a person who trains very hard to be where she is but doubt her own skills and abilities. Which she shouldn't. In that Spar she gave me some really good hits. What she needs is more training.
    Jophiel A friend of Marquessa Quenia. She has offered me advice in winning over the Marquessa. And I hope that her thoughts on the matter are true.
    Josephine The Baroness Regent has long been one of my favourite clients. Her tastes trend toward delightful with a fantastical element of whimsy. When she sails in, I know that I am bound to make a delightful piece and that the gems will be singing. She is no less a delightful conversationalist as well.
    Julian Baroness Saik. It has been quite sometime. I see you are as busy as always. I hope I can help.
    Jyri A kind woman, and the wife of a fallen brother. Still walks Gunther the dog in the familiar patrols her husband walked - this I admire.
    Kace An exceptionally kind young Baroness of Saik. She speaks of her children with such joy. No mention of her husband though. I think I recall hearing a story about a shark? I dismissed it as a fairytale, but the woman... there is something special about her. I hope to know her better some day.
    Kenna She seems a quietly confident woman, but it could have been the conversation matter. Sparte trusts her - and that speaks for much.
    Lance A chance meeting at the bank, but it left an indelible impression. Kindness, beauty and such amazing advice as to possibly change Acorn Hill forever. I owe a tremendous debt after a single afternoon.
    Lou I've had the opportunity to meet Lucita a time or two. She's come to use the Explorer's library. Aislin had given her permission, and I'm not inclined to rescind it. She has a curious mind, and that's something always to be fostered.
    Mabelle Very welcoming Baroness, seems to hold many talents in the music area. I should get to know her better.
    Madeleine Oh, my dear, dear friend. You continue to be an icon of what it is to be a woman of faith. I have missed you and your light so much!
    Marisol The Baroness Saik is an amazingly accomplished artist. I am lucky to have her as a tutor in my pursuit of furthering my own abilities. She is a wonderful conversationalist too. We must get together beyond just lessons.
    Martino Holds herself in high regard and seems to be quite knowing on the events around the city
    Merek A serious woman, Merek thinks, but one with a desire to do things for the people. She seems to be nice enough in his opinion, and intelligent.
    Mikani An interesting woman; maybe we will go on an adventure sometime. She seems game.
    Miranda Quick wit and a good sense of humor. Lovely lady!
    Mirk Young, beguiling, but unlike most Lyceum her reputation for productivity precedes her.
    Neilda She is a tome of Knowledge. Very impressive woman
    Nigel Baronness Saik is both most lovely and most kind. It was quite pleasant to share company and tea, though, I fear she has been burdened greatly. It is not my place to ease such, but, I hope she finds some comfort in such matters.
    Niklas A gifted singer from Granato. Seems good natured and kind.
    Nuala An unexpected nightingale found in a colossus' cage. Such a sweet voice could bring someone to tears and raise them to wild heights. What spirit moves her is not an unfamiliar one to me. It echoes through the mighty rivers of the north, and in its surging currents, her song reminds me of home.
    Quenia Lucita. My cousin, and a skilled musician. I've been helping her get settled around Arx since she's new to the city, and I hope that she can find something to do to put her musical talent to work. I plan on hosting a wine tasting, which she's agreed to play at, for instance.
    Raimon A skilled musician
    Raven Finally met one of the spellsingers in person. She's very humble about her accomplishments, even if she's already participated in some great things.
    Rook Has big ideas and plans for her Barony, cautious enough to deliver on them and ensure they happen. If all were like her to their people, our Compact would be without rival in the known world.
    Rowenova We briefly met at the Traders Tavern. She is a beautiful Baroness of the Saik family and also knows Lord Arik to whom we both spake there. She must be physically active with that great handshake: a good sign!
    Rysen A talented musician and lyrical genius, she is truly good company.
    Sabella I did not know Esteban very well, but have gotten to know the Baroness over the passing months and find her to be quite charming, incredibly talented, and extremely friendly! We most certainly should spend more time together and I think we will be very good friends!
    Samuele A very proper lady, seems very polite and indeed helpful as well.
    Sanya The baroness was a fine companion to spend time with and a very talented performer. I learned a lot speaking with her and hope to meet her soon again.
    Sophie She's charming. I'd like to talk to her more, in private this time. Shrines are so crowded sometimes...
    Sudara A widow acting as regent for her children; in command of an oft-overlooked barony; having to succeed more renowned figures in defence of her people. For some reason, I find myself empathising with and approving of her. Especially since she now leads a barony with which I once worked closely.
    Svoli Absolutely beautiful, and so poised and interesting and generous.
    Talwyn The soft dance of flame punctuates her every gesture. Her words carry that warmth with an easy candor. To listen to her is to find serenity and invigoration both. Old cares ease away in the presence of a friend such as her.
    Teireno It was very nice seeing her again. A lovely person to talk to, as always.
    Tescelina She is lovely, I see music in her even if I have not heard her perform. I hear it in the rumble of her blood over bones.
    Theo One of the first people I met in Arx, the Lady Lucita welcomed me to the city with drinks and food.
    Valdemar Incredibly knowledgeable, and quite pleasant. It was enjoyable meeting her, and hopefully there will be time to talk to her again soon.
    Vega A lovely woman, and anyone that has the High Princess' favor is someone worth knowing. I'll look forward to talking with her again.
    Verity For saving my Patron, the Baroness will always have my thanks. Reading her report makes her to be as deadly and brave as she is beautiful and charming.
    Veronica The Baroness of Saikland Greens is a pleasant and friendly woman. Even with a wide cast of sociable nobility in all of Arx, it is a rarity for someone to reach out and welcome strangers; Baroness Lucita is one such rare gem.
    Vitalis A fellow musician, if I am not mistaken. Well, in my case an appreciator of music, I wonder if she has any tips for keeping a lute dry and in tune on an extended foray.
    Zebulon My sweet Lucita, I was happy to meet with her again upon arriving to the city
    Zeriax Does honey sit waiting at the other end of a siren's voice?
    Zoey I was unsure at first, but she seems a fine woman.
