Lady Zoey Kennex

Any inconvenience is really just an adventure in a crappy hat, you know.

Social Rank: 4
Concept: Bright-eyed Idealist
Fealty: Thrax
Family: Kennex
Gender: female
Marital Status: Married
Age: 25
Birthday: 8/12
Religion: Pantheon
Vocation: Noble
Height: 5'9"
Hair Color: black
Eye Color: liquid brown
Skintone: light brown

Titles: Minister of Coin for House Kennex, Voice of Stormward

Description: Her warm brown skin and expressive, liquid brown eyes speak nothing of her years, and her round, youthful face is framed by a soft cloud of thick black curls. Her soft, full lips are quick to share a warm smile with new acquaintances as easily as her closest family and friends. In her rare moments of stillness, there is a quiet uncertainty about her.

(One can safely assume that she is in her third trimester. Her face and hands are covered in scratches and scrapes that are still healing.)

Personality: Zoey is on the verge of adult life with wide open eyes, ready to drink it all in. She is warm, and generally cheerful, full of optimism, this outlook only a little undercut by the tremula of insecurity that come inevitably with that whisper of overachieving perfectionism that can sometimes come to the firstborn of overachievers. She loves music, dancing, attention and pretty things -- because who doesn't. A little shy and uncertain in the adult social world, yet the lure of attention is never entirely possible to turn away. She dreams of adventure, far off places, wild romance -- all as yet unformed, idealized and distant from her grasp.

Background: The eldest daughter of Samael and Sabitha Bisland, Lady Zoey Bisland had the best of education growing up. Her father was one of the finest lawyers in the Compact, which does, of course, mean that he wasn't around very much. For her mother, life was a constant flurry of social occasion and diplomacy. Zoey was an energetic and hopeful child, who worked at her lessons with the vague idea that if only she could achieve everything that anyone ever asked of her, she might be worthy of the hopes of her parents.

There is only so much a childhood can prepare a young woman for a world at war, across between debutante, a baby adventurer, and a neophyte scholar in a number of bookish topics. Hope and fantasy lingered together in her heart, for some future adventure opening up on her horizon. Arriving in Arx on the verge of a siege after her home at Pridehall was racked with the first battle of a horrifying war, Zoey stands on the precipice of a dozen potential futures. It only remains for her to choose.

  • Ian - My partner and protector. I'm grateful to have you in my life.

  • Name Summary
    Aethan I'm glad to have her back from Stormward -- she's good for Ian.
    Alarissa As always, she is Zoey kennex, by way of Bisland. A true Bisland.
    Alecstazi A lovely voice, a kind word. She is a good Thraxian woman, and kind about my lack of eyesight.
    Alessia She's undoubtedly brave for aiding us in our mission.
    Alexio A pretty young woman with impecable taste for fashion, drinks and wares. It was adorable how she fawned over the lovely oak blue bracade couches. I know I shall be seeing more of her soon.
    Amaranth I can tell that she has a good heart to speak courtesies on behalf of her husband. I'm curious to learn what else there is to her.
    Amari She's a surprisingly good archer. She held her own in the Ashford contest and against a giant boar!
    Amund Determined, efficient, lively. A balm to soothe wounds.
    Anisha Lady Zoey seems a thoughtful and quiet sort. They do say that still waters are the deepest. What are you reflecting on, my lady?
    Apollo Kind enough to get down in the snow to help right my fumble. Which matches what I know of Kennexes, of course. Good hearts, the lot of them.
    Arcadia A proper Kennex lady. Though, she has a sense of humor. Not many would laugh off a casket of bones.
    Athaur A rather lovely lady, all told. I am afraid I may have shocked her though
    Bhandn She can certainly shoot with a bow, which is probably why she did not have any trouble with being alone at night. Still, a bow cannot solve every problem.
    Braelynn A proud woman. Well she should be!
    Brigida Protective over others even when the danger has seemed to pass. Her vigilance is to be admired.
    Caith What a delight! She knows so many languages and is such fun to be around. I helped her with some modeling moves but she hardly needed it! She is a natural at attracting the eye.
    Caspian I respect all of the Kennex's, though Lady Zoey is one who I hold a great deal of respect for.
    Catalana Ian's better half. She is a cousin by marriage but as close to a sister and Jan is. I am forever grateful she was brought into our family.
    Corrigan Those dark curls distract me so much, I forgot what I really think.
    Dio A friendly, but guarded lady of House Kennex. Seems most capable.
    Domonico She has some steel to her, that is definite.
    Drusila The Lady Kennex is fascinating, I never would have thought of the idea of testing my friends by having them all drink foolsbane. She will learn a valuable thing, which of them is the strongest at a Lycene dinner.
    Esme A nice woman with a nice sword, what's not to like? I feel there is more of a story there and hope to learn more about it.
    Eurion The Minister of Coin for House Kennex and voice of Stormward. With large and beautiful brown eyes, it was hard to keep my gaze away.
    Evaristo I am entirely sure I couldn't handled being covered in corpse and rotten honey - but she could. A keen eye for detail too, I'd have her in a team any day!
    Evonleigh Clever, strong and patient, she is a perfect match for Ian and a good friend to all who know her.
    Fairen She knows how to make people envious with her sauna, pool and hot tub complex! However, she's got a charming and disarming way about her, probably skilled at negotiations.
    Gwenna Lady Zoey Kennex is someone I do not get to spend /nearly/ enough time with. She is as charming a conversationalist as she is lovely in appearance. There is a spirit about her that nearly screams adventurer, and yet her poise and grace seem almost to belie it. How very fortunate I am to get to call her a dear acquaintance and perhaps even friend.
    Hamish It is not so rare to find people for whom devotion is a sometimes treat.
    Ian I'm glad to have her back in Arx.
    Imogene The kind of woman who seems to observe and listen more than she speaks, which means also the kind who probably has more interesting things to say than most.
    Iseulet Sweet, with the softest looking hair I've ever seen. I've noticed Porter speaks very highly of her - I can't wait to get to know her a bit better.
    Jaerith Seems like a good addition to her house. And where would Lord Ian be without her?
    Juniper She measures her words before she speaks them and they seem to come always from her heart.
    Jyri Great toast, and witty in general - the sort that makes you feel comfortable in a gathering.
    Kaia My dear big (and only) sister! My best friend and confidant! I know I can always count on her. She has offered to help with the wedding planning! Which is AMAZING! Truly the best sister one could ever ask for!
    Kaldur A pleasant surprise to find her as a guest in the Black Hall. I haven't seen her since we were children. She seems to have become a remarkable woman.
    Korka Something tells me she'd be fun at parties.
    Laurel A kind lady who seems to carry some troubles. It is a benefit that she can see beyond them to the better things in her life. Sometimes that is one of the more difficult things to to do.
    Lenne Several people I trust implicitly speak very, very highly of her. If she is so close an ally, then I will treat her as my own trusted friend.
    Leola A woman with a mind as fascinating and as alien to me as the finest of musics.
    Liara Lady Zoey has always appeared strikingly energetic and full of talk and laughter when I see her. Really altogether delightful.
    Liesel She really likes naming babies, from what I hear.
    Lisebet A linguist who seems very interested in fairness. I should like to get to know her better.
    Llewella I may be biased, with a distant relationship to her, but Lady Zoey is pleasant company.
    Lucita Talented designer, an archer, and Lord Ian's wife. We have common interests and share troubles, laughs and have a growing friendship.
    Mabelle My talented cousin Zoey is back in the city. She is a feast on the eyes! So fashionable!
    Macda A Bisland lost to Kennex. Such a tragedy. After she pops that baby out, we'll see what sort of fun we can find.
    Martino The delightful sister to the Lady Kaia. Older sister, kind. Protective and everything an older sister should be.
    Marzio Notions of peace are easy to stand for when your people aren't being slaughtered. Her desires are admirable in thought, but detached from reality, I believe.
    Miranda Amazing feats of sleight of hand! She slipped that rum right into Prince Victus' hands like a pro! Note to self, have rum around in case the High Lord makes a visit.
    Mirella She seems to be in possession of some intriguing information. I must speak with her again, should he be amenable.
    Mirk A lady of the Mourning Isles, seemingly comfortable accepting the hospitality of the Spirit Walkers. She's respectful, but reserved. Even when asking questions, she doesn't reveal much of herself.
    Monique A treasure trove of information and a great credit to the Scholars.
    Niklas Still the beating heart of House Kennex.
    Olivia Formerly Bisland, currently Kennex. Two houses I like, and she is unbelievably likable.
    Orrin Still resembles that young girl at Gabriel's side. How she's grown! I'm sure she tempers Lord Ian's moods to great effect.
    Petal A lovely Lady who married into Kennex and seems very good for Lord Ian. She seem well dressed and self-composed, probably is a good person to know.
    Rafael One of my brilliant nieces. She appears content, healthy, and properly appreciated by her new kin -- and that's all I could ever wish for her!
    Ras Friendly. She's got a notebook. Guess an epiphany's struck her before, but I don't see any bruises.
    Reese A lovely Lady of Bisland by Birth and Kennex by marriage. It sounds like her son is doing well and is good she is back in town. I look forward to visiting with her more.
    Rey Gracious and kind, a friendly woman, who glows from motherhood.
    Rosalind She seems to know things and seems cautious. I wonder what about!
    Rysen Intelligent and capable in every respect.
    Sabella One of my oldest friends! I'm so happy she found happiness with Ian and that we can watch our children grow up together!
    Samuele she has a grace about her, that doesn't approach offputting.
    Scipio I believe that I crossed paths with Lady Zoey Kennex at the Sip n' Spar. While I did not get a chance to speak with her directly, she seemed to carry herself well. I would enjoy the chance to actually meet her.
    Shard She was at the meeting last night, but I don't think I've seen her before. I don't /think/ I've seen her before. I don't know what her particular interest in the subject is, unless it's just wanting to stay alive. That's as good a reason as any.
    Sigurd It's been a long time but she seems happy with her marriage and her change in house. I look forwards to seeing her at the next Sip and Spar.
    Sirius I hurt her feelings tonight, I think. Not with purpose, but the mistake's made no less. For someone so kind and approachable, she didn't deserve my imprudence. Come chance, I hope there's a chance to right this wrong.
    Sorrel Utterly reasonable. Always the most level headed, she helps to keep the Kennex boys on track. One of Ian's great successes was bringing her to the Mourning Isles. She makes a good friend.
    Sparte I like her! She has a reputation for being good with bows and money. I wonder if she has found a way to combine the two? Maybe some sort of crossbow to pay merchants that irk her, one copper piece at a time?
    Talwyn Clapped at all the right moments and I thank her for that. Attentive to so many around her as well. A socialite through-and-through.
    Teagan A quietly helpful sort. I seem to keep running into members of her family.
    Tescelina Her heart is gold and I was grateful to see it, when I needed such kindness.
    Thea Patient, sociable. I can see how she is the sister to Kaia--which isn't a bad thing.
    Valdemar I was right, she is not nearly as shy as it seemed at first.
    Vanora I'm still not sure what to make of Lady Zoey. I hope she will be good to my son for his own sake.
    Vasile Willing to make dialogue. That implies a naivete that is quite endearing. Or perhaps a willingness to see the good in all people.
    Victus Mainlanders don't always adapt well to Mourning Isles living, but Kennex is not exactly a traditional piece of the Isles. I think she fits in just fine there, with soft words and kinder hearts.
    Vitalis A voice of reason. I would not call her timid, so much as steady.
    Volcica She seems full of good ideas.
    Wash She's found a home in Kennex, a sanctuary. I believe she treasures Kennex as much as I do.
