Lady Oona Seliki
"Most people don't see what is beyond what's just in front of them. But you're smarter than that...aren't you?"
Description: Just below average height Oona was a great beauty in her younger years, and some hints of that beauty still remain in the sculpt of her face. That said, she does not seem to have bothered with trying to fight the onset of age, rather instead she has embraced the wrinkles and silver hair that come with it. Despite being in her mid-sixties, she has kept herself in good shape, growing only a bit more plump than her long lost girlish figure. It helps keep her warm, you see.
Personality: Oona has always been a woman who marches to the beat of her own drum. If she wants to dance, she'll dance, even if it means she knocks over a vase. If she wants to sing, she'll sing, even if she shatters a mirror. If she wants to stand stock still and listen to birdsong, she will, even if she's standing in the middle of the road. And if she wants to go swimming naked, well...you get the idea. She's a remarkably tolerant person, save regarding two issues: her family (don't mess with them. just. don't.) and thralldom, having been the daughter of escaped thralls herself, who managed to make it to the freedom of Deepwood's shores when she was a child. Oona is a lady who loves life - food, wine, a beautiful sunset, but she's also highly observant and quite crafty. If she seems a bit kooky, well, she's happy to have people underestimate her. She enjoys the look of surprise on people's faces when the realize that not only is she her son's Voice, but she's damn good at it. Not so much the kooky old lady after all...
Background: Dowager Countess Oona is the mother of Orrin and gandmother of Peri and Kaldur. What her son and grandchildren learned of statecraft, for the most part they learned from her. After her first husband, the Count died, she secured her son's seat as Count and elected to enjoy a life of leisurely retirement. She married twice more between then and the present, but in both cases, her husband passed away before her. After her daughter-in-law died of sickness, Oona returned to Orrin's court, agreeing to take up the role as serving as his Voice. While she loves her grandchildren very much, she is well aware of Peri's strong calling away from being heir, and Kaldur's raw potential for being a successful one. Sometimes people just need a push...carefully, so they're unaware of it.
