Lady Mikani Redreef

I'm not your mama but I'll give you some advice anyways... If you want to be happy you need to strive to be realistic but optimistic, leave fear behind and take risks. Have fun and reach for the sky because tomorrow might never come and I am not going to search for a way to bring your sorry ass back from the dead. If you die, you have done earned that shit.

Description: Mika Tideborne is a tall woman with an athletic but curvy body. She has a small nose and full pink lips that hide a row of healthy white teeth.

Her eyes are a window to her depth and mystery and, to most, clearly reflect the intelligence behind her pretty face. Long brown hair reaches down to the middle of her back and has been bleached lighter by constant exposure to sunlight.

Mika can be a quiet woman at times but when she does speak her voice tends to be calm and somewhat soothing much like a gentle breeze. Though seemingly laid back she also carries herself with nearly tangible confidence in a way that tells people she is not their prey.

(Mika's body is a book of scars that tells of injuries long past and recent ones that tell of her life at present. The scars show a history of risky behavior: they are scattered over her skin and most of them hardly visible but there are a couple that suggest she may have nearly died a couple of times

She has three tattoos on her body. The first is on her right wrist. A small circle compass rose with the only lettering being an N for north. The arrow points slightly to the right reminding her that she knows the way north but can always follow her own path. Annother is on her side, just below her left arm. It is a geometric bow and arrow. She would never confess the meaning behind this one beyond saying it is for the trials in her life; it has a Saffron feel to it, the art style typical of that region. The last tattoo is a small of outlined wings with the number 20 between them at the base of her hairline.)

Personality: Mikani "Mika" loves the novelty of a good experience and is not afraid to throw caution to the wind and venture forward on the paths less taken. She needs a challenge set before her, a goal she can work towards, and an adventure to keep her life on the edge.

Mika is direct but optimistic and often friendly. She is not afraid to help others explore their own passions so long as they are bold and exciting.

She rarely feels guilty or anxious, avoiding a life in the past and living in the present. Failure is a word that simply means "try another way" to Mika and she rarely lets herself rest for long when at first she falls.

Witty, Independent, and driven are great ways to describe this young Isle's commoner. She is brave and willing to prove herself when people tell her she can't because she is a woman. She is not a man and she doesn't try to be but Mika will make damn sure people know she is a woman of strength and resolve and can stand shoulder to shoulder with any man.

Background: Mikani Tideborne was born to a couple of thralls within the grasp of the Redreef House and by the time she was five years old her parents had been killed for trying to conceal the child's existence. In a show of 'mercy' and 'kindness' the family did not kill the child and took her into their own household as a thrall. The girl was tasked with being a friend to Ember and Marina, making sure they kept out of trouble, and reporting back to their parents when the girls did wrong. Naturally, she got into a lot of trouble herself because the two girls were quite an adventurous handful on their own.

Eventually the twins left and Mika was given some freedom to explore life on her own. She worked herself nearly to death, doing any work possible to pay off her inherited debt to her family. By the time Mika was 20 she had paid off her own debt. However, she stuck with the Redreef House and continued to serve them, finding the twins again and working for them rather than being owned by them.

  • Name Summary
    Adora An unlikely and uncomfortable hostess. I thought nobles pretended better. I don't like her.
    Aella What an energetic little Thraxian. She seems an entertaining sort, I think. At least not like some of these Thraxians I've been meeting. I assume she's Thraxians. Grayson vassals don't have 'reefs' in there names now, do they?
    Alarissa A former thrall, elevated to lady in Redreef. These were things that I did not know but I find her well spoken, eager to learn and while her skills were not where we needed them to be, it provided an opportunity none the less. I look forward to speaking and working with her regardless.
    Amund Pleasant lady. Very proud of her Islander origins. Member of House Redreef.
    Ann A new and welcome face to Arx but any family to Edward is family to me.
    Athaur The Lady Redreef dances wonderfully. I wonder what sort of boat she sails?
    Austen An ex-thrall who seems to care very much about her family. An important quality to have in a Voice, I believe.
    Azova Good-natured, friendly, and refreshing. Perfectly accompanied by a nice cup of rum.
    Berenice Very protective of the modesty of Thraxian princes.
    Brady A charming and intelligent woman, easy on the eyes and becoming a good friend.
    Brigida Former thrall, now seemingly running a domain in the Islands. Lagoma at work.
    Caspian My very first apprentice. I hope to help her achieve greatness!
    Cirroch A nice woman who has a fun relationship with her cousin?
    Coraline We started off on a rough patch, but with the fire she holds for change, as well as the strength to lead Redreef, I think she is definitely someone who will make a good solid friend.
    Denica An interesting Lady that is now working with Alarissa and I on Thursday's Child, I am really looking forward to continuing to work alongside her, and do great things for Thrax.
    Domonico Tough. Good fighter. Can take a hit and keep going. Pays attention to advice. I approve.
    Donato I remember women like her - dangerous and rough like the sea we traveled and explored. A fascinating person, probably has a story or two I wager.
    Emrys I suppose the only way she might have crossed a greater chasm might have been if she had gone from Thrall to Princess. Yet, she has enough self-awareness to know what she lacks for her new station, and the bravery to seek the means to change it.
    Evaristo Sociable adventurer who makes rum?! Perfect!
    Fairen I appreciate that she is naturally a skeptic. She pays proper tribute to the Thirteenth with how she inquistively finds any contrary arguement she can intelligently defend, in some regards. I admire such a trait.
    Faruq An easy smile. A beautiful laugh. I am quite certain she'd be able to distract people rather easily with her wiles in a knife fight. Maybe we'll spar some day just to see where we end up.
    Faye A quiet woman, but clever to add the punchline to a joke. I'd enjoy speaking with her again.
    Gaston What a fascinating woman...to go from Thrall to noble to Voice, to bear the scars and tattoos of a life of adventure. Pretty, intelligent, humble...a rarity anywhere, noble or common.
    Gianna An adventurer with a nicer voice than I expected.
    Gretchen I certainly would never, ever, ever, ever want to go up against her in anything. Tenacious doesn't even begin to describe it. Not knowing when to quit might.
    Harlex A Redreef knife-fighter with potential and sharp eyes.
    Ian Might do better with a sword than with a dagger, the way she was parrying. Footwork was a little heavy.
    Iliana Well-spoken and thoughtful. More scholarly than I might have expected, but then, you can never judge a woman by her house. She's good company.
    Ingrid A former thrall who is now a Lady of Redreef. She seems to know her job very well and is making Redreef Shores flourish. There is something slightly haunted about her, but she is a kind woman who is helping people who need it. We need more of those in the city.
    Jace She has been holding down the fort with my cousins gone. Still don’t think water is a hazard.
    Jasher Lady of Redreef. Eager to get her knuckles dirty. Tireless in her pursuit for improvement. Doubtless she will become a formidable warrior if she kept the path.
    Jeffeth The Voice of Sandreef! She seems a good sort. She is connected with many I know though it seems we've not really run into each other much.
    Joscelin A lovely young woman, eager to help, sweet.
    Juniper She's quite plain spoken! I have no doubt that's an advantage in some circles.
    Jyri A quick meeting - but she seems interesting, and I'm sure we'll meet again sometime.
    Kaia Social; funny; beautiful; and approachable. I like her!
    Lorenzo An interesting woman with a clear passion for House projects. I would enjoy working with her on something, should the opportunity ever come up.
    Lou This young woman is my protege, and while we might have gotten off to a somewhat rocky start, I'm looking forward to her potential.
    Lucita An adventurous sort from the conversations shared between us, one who does not shock easily. She has a sense of humor and expresses it well in a manner to produce smiles. It is fun getting to know Lady Redreef better.
    Maru A former thrall the Voice of a Thrax house? My assumptions have not been more challenged since I arrived in Arx. Certainly worth getting to know better.
    Melody Something of a wonderful duelist; even though she fights with daggers, her opponent was sweating the entire time despite his long reach. Definitely got that fire of a warrior, that's for sure.
    Miranda This Redreef has a bit of dry humor I can appreciate.
    Mirk An earnest young woman. Not Northern, but she can appreciate a good whiskey and still smile so soon after a loss. I like that.
    Monique Seems somewhat quiet, but polite and with an adventurous streak. I do like a good adventurer!
    Nuala Intrepid, fleet-footed northern fox. She takes bravely to new things without hesitation. Not for an instant did she fail in a fun exercise. I like her.
    Orrin What a curious lady, that marks her life's events on her skin as the Abandoned do.
    Perronne She also likes finding old things, and seems reasonably nice!
    Sabella She's always so warm and welcoming no matter what or where I find her! Definitely someone I could be close friends with!
    Samuele Very inquisitive person
    Sasha A lovely lady of Redreef. I think she will help her people grow and thrive with her as voice and I am excited to see what mark she makes for herself.
    Selene Her quick wit to the light jests I threw out reveals a dimension I never expected. Such a delight to see a Thraxian lady as able and willing to have a good laugh with some smart, vibrant wordplay.
    Sheena A childhood friend. She was a THrall in the Redreef Barony. Although, unlike me she stayed with them and I went with Baron Edward.
    Sorrel An excellent knife fighter and a very good champion. She beat me in a duel with skill, grace, and fine sportsmanship.
    Sparte Oh, right, Mikani. Yes, we met. She is Lou Grayson's protege, did you know that? I expect she is impressive on that alone, but we met in sort of a, well... I hope to meet her again for different reasons.
    Venturo A thoughtful woman, one who is willing to see layers and give provoking conversation, rather than just be content with what is seen on the surface.
    Vercyn A wonderful woman, capable of elegence of form and the suitability of function. I look forward to more time spent getting to know her and I am eager to watch and see what she can do.
    Vitalis Such determination, to earn her freedom on her own. Admirable. I want to know the story, but she carries enough scars that it may not be one she likes to revisit.
    Willow She seems like she knows how to go hard in the moment. I would not want to tangle with her, but she can pull off some black leather.
