Description: At first glance, Morrighan very much appears the epitome of the North and its people; she is a woman that carries herself with confidence and strength, embodying all that is wild and unpredictable - much like fire. It's one word that adequately describes everything about her, and the only word that is needed. Voluminous ringlets of silken flame highlighted with yellow-gold cascade down narrow shoulders, settling in at the curve of her pinched in waist. They frame an unmarred oval-shaped face with a fair and freckle dusted complexion, one that harbors fine, symmetrical features with aerial cheekbones. Dark kohl lines almondine eyes and dusts thick lashes, accenting the brilliant color of her tempestuous sea-blue gaze. They rest below groomed brows that are often expressive, a few shades darker than her conflagrant red curls. She has a straight and slender nose positioned above a small, sensuous mouth with full, bowed lips flushed to a natural shade of rosy pink. Though thin-bodied, her physique is athletic, form well-toned with notable muscular definition when seen - but she still retains an ample amount of womanly curves in all the right places. Her voice is honeyed, speech rough and unrefined, accented with a heavy Northern brogue. She exudes an aura of a survivor, a warrior, possessing a ferocity that's akin to a raging fire or the fury of an ocean's storm.

Personality: Fiery, rough around the edges, a little uncultured and uncivilized - that's Morrighan. She has impish tendencies and a love of strong liquor; by no means does she have any ladylike qualities. Sometimes she can be brash and abrasive, saying what's on her mind and often has a no-nonsense attitude. Typically sharp and quick witted, the young woman has a mouth that can at times even make a pirate blush. She usually keeps her temper in line when necessary, most of the time it's reeled in by Redrain nobility...with some measured difficulty. Morrighan will bite her tongue and play nice when she feels her actions might reflect poorly on the noble family that saved her. She's fiercely loyal to Redrain - no task is too much, and she'll readily admit that she's very protective of Prince Sherrod's family. She's not ashamed of who and what she is, and if there's a derogatory remark about her being a Prodigal? Morrighan will just give a smug looking smirk.

Background: Born to one of war-like tribes of the Abandoned, the typical convention of brutality and savagery was a poignant reality to Morrighan. Through the ongoing blood feuds between various clans, her parents were lost shortly after her birth, leaving her rearing to the tribe as a whole. She didn't experience a typical childhood for most, existing alone was sheer survival. The more knowledged and skilled members of the group taught her what they could, starting her crude, rudimentary education at a young age. She learned with the volatile state and the constant raids it was kill or be killed, fight or fall, to never give up in the face of adversity and to stand one's ground. For the most part, this served her well, for many a year, in fact - until the pirates came.

With the ongoing fighting, chaos flourished, giving the corsairs an opportunity they couldn't ignore. They raided the settlement, pillaging and taking anything of value they could, cutting down anyone who got in their way. Still just a sprite of a child on the cusp of her pre-teen years, Morrighan fought to the best of her ability, though ended up in enemy hands. The scoundrels found her fiery, combative temperament amusing, furthering their resolve to drag her along back to the ship, where she was put to work as a scullery maid. Needless to say, being the hellion she is, a lot of plates were broken, and food may or may not have been tampered with. Time passed and was largely unmeasured, how long exactly she was aboard the vessel is unknown. Eventually, with a misguided sense of assuredness and egotism, the pirates moved to raid a ship in Redrain's coastal waters.

It all went awry, ending as what one would describe as a failure of epic proportions. For their crimes of piracy, the crew was hanged; Morrighan was spared. Prince Sherrod of House Redrain took mercy on the young Abandoned, offering to take her in as a ward. With her life spared, she gave an oath of fealty to the noble house that saved her and swore to serve in whatever capacity that was required. The transition was a bit of a shock, a far cry from her life in the tribe and her time aboard the corsair vessel - but she found it terribly intriguing. Despite her place as a servant, Morrighan remained mostly uncultured and somewhat uncivilized, but she learned enough of social etiquette to know when to keep her mouth shut, lest her behavior reflect poorly upon the man that took her in. It was a new world, a foreign environment, and she had to learn a new set of skills in order to survive.

  • Name Summary
    Aerandir A curiosity of a dame, accompanied by a raven most of the time. I find myself fascinating by her, and so I hope to meet her again, should our respective duties permit it.
    Agatha A beacon of Hope and feistiness. I think she could inspire many of us
    Alarissa Of the Abandoned turned Prodigal that she has met, Morrighan is by far, one of the nicer ones that she has come across and less offensive. Helps that the woman has a deft touch with fabric and soft spoken. Perhaps time for a new seamstress.
    Alis House Redrain could not ask for a more spirited and ferocious defender of their family and honor. I have a great deal of admiration for her, and the courage that radiates from her.
    Amari So very insightful! It's been a while since anyone stared at me quite so intently, but she didn't even make it feel that awkward and uncomfortable.
    Amund Strong. Beautiful. Fights savagely. Northern.
    Ardoin A fiery Northern lass with the distinction of being both a seamstress and a knight, oddly enough - with a taste for whiskey and a crow for a companion. Still, I get the feeling there's more than that.
    Arthen She's somethin' else, ain't she? I say much more, I might get to blushing just a little bit. So I better no-.. oh, alright, alright. That accent will just carry you right away, won't it? She don't give a lot of humor, but when that smile does show up, you don't forget. That's a good sort of woman, the kind you hallucinate about when you're lost and stumblin' around in the woods and maybe going to die of starvation and you ate the wrong berries so now you're seein' things. Yep.
    Asher Stoic, bodyguard-esque. Pretty much what was expected. Except the accent.
    Barric A very skilled tailor by all accounts, talks casually of working with Fireweave. Busy schedule but apparently very worth taking the time to get something made by.
    Braith Kieran really does know the best people and Dame Morrighan is definitely a fine example. The self confidence that slides off the Dame is palpable no matter how far you are from her. It is encouraging, inspiring and if I must admit a little intimidating. I now regret having shown off the bandage of my left hand due to the poor use of a bladed weapon. Definitely not my finest first impression most likely but she's offered knowledge when I so desperately needed it along with words of wisdom. I have heard and will heed.
    Branwen Passionate. And, appears to be knowledgable of the evils that have happened of late. Someone to speak with later.
    Calista Though it has been a year and a day (or more) since first meeting the newly appointed Dame, Morrighan has always been very kind and courteous. There's fire in her but she's never been disrespectful. The young woman is a master of her craft, has an attention for detail and is a true artist. Plus, she likes roses!
    Caspian She seemed like an interesting, down to earth woman with a good sense of humor.
    Cirroch A down to earth knight with an easy disposition and a love of fire.
    Cirroch I could imagine few people who would be more suited to be the Sword of Redrain then Morrighan. She is what all northern women should aspire to be.
    Clara She fights well. gave Arik a run for his money.
    Claude A fiery and intimidating young woman, but had the kindness and patience to talk with me for awhile.
    Cullen Talented seamstress, to be sure. Has a healthy respect for my cousin Marian....pretty, but don't call her cute. Smart, but not forthcoming about some things. I ought to talk to her more and see what else there is to know.
    Cybele Morrighan is a seamstress who made me pretty things when I visited her with Lailah! She is nice and clever and a dame!
    Darren Dame Morrighan's fiery spirit inspires everyone around her, myself included, but it is her compassion that truly endears her to me.
    Delia Plain-spoken and honest, with wit and style that I can't help but appreciate.
    Delilah Had the age a face and a story, it could be Dame Morrighan. She has set herself forth on a path the envy of any storyteller, shaped by her own conviction and intelligence. Her essential strength of spirit prevails though she does not suffer fools. The rarest of qualities -- a genuine care for the world around her, and those less fortunate than herself -- ignites her soul, and governs her actions. Impressive indeed.
    Draven She's nice! Very nice! I like her! And Nova likes her too! She's a fighty type like Nova! And nice! No wonder Nova likes her! She heard the story of how I met Nova too!
    Duarte A storied warrior. And humble! Her ferocity in battle and strength of character likely owing to strong personal conviction rather than aspiration.
    Echo Dame Morrighan was splendid company and she has a cute little raven, too. Another from Farhaven, and certainly someone I should enjoy some time with when given the opportunity.
    Ezra Literally, their arse on fire. Either she's misusing the word literally or you'd rather not see her upset. But in spite of that, she seems good humored and agreeable. She seems like an amusing character.
    Faye A strong and adventurous woman, one that I'm happy to have fight at my side or at my back. She has some mysteries around her, and I hope I can help unravel them. '
    Fortunato What a delightful knight. You can tell the ones that feel Lagoma in their sweet, hungry hearts and she's one of them. Feels deeply, thinks deeply, desires and acts. Who can ask for more? Has her hauntedness and her obsessions, I'll see what I can do to help her walk where she needs and walks to walk. Optimistic despite it all, at least in comparison to me. We'll have to talk more.
    Gianna An impressive woman who certainly ought to have more suitors.
    Itzal A fire-headed Dame met in the shrine of the flame. Strangely we ended up discussing of water.
    Jacque Dame Morrighan. Seems to be a lively sort, and quite the looker, to boot. Knows my cousin the High Lord and his wife. I'd like to speak some more with her, sometime.
    Jasher The fierce Sword of Farhaven. Provide steel mugs when drinking with her.
    Jeffeth A Knight. One who isn't afraid to show her fiery side. We'll be in the north together, and I'm looking forward to standing beside her in battle.
    Jordan She's pretty, speaks with a funny accent, and seems to be very cynical or at least guarded about other people's intent. But simple, and wild, in her shamelessly casual way. That's to be enjoyed.
    Joscelin What to say about her? She's my friend, my confidante from the first day I met her, stalwart ally and all around just... Yeah.
    Katarina Knight of Redrain with the fiery mane and inner spirit to match - or so how Katarina has come to think of Morrighan in their brief, but meaningful encounters together. She's come to hold a healthy respect for this woman, given that she signed up for a mission and came aboard a ship without second thought or voicing doubts. Bravery, beauty, and a fine taste for spirits.
    Katarina There are few people in the world that Katarina explicitly trusts more than the Redrain knight. Theirs is a bond forged of surviving hard trials and grueling opposition together, and a common love of high-quality spirits. She doesn't question it, only embraces the unlikely companionship.
    Kedehern Vala Khanne's pupil of sorts, it seems. I don't claim to really understand what they do, or how, but... It works, it seems, certainly. I know that.
    Khanne She made a really awesome outfit for me once. Very talented woman, holds her whiskey well. Wish I saw her out and about more, she'd be fun to hang out with.
    Laric Salvadore's favorite. Passionate and fiery, though her fervor concerns me. Fire burns both ways.
    Luca Isn't she something else? Though I don't know her well, her reputation precedes her, and she must be worth getting to know if Marian approves so highly of her. Farhaven's heirloom sword looks like a natural fit for the woman. May she use it well.
    Lucita Pleasant Redrain Dame. She's preparing for an excursion up north. Seems skillful and experienced, has an interest in things around her. Will be nice getting to know her better.
    Mabelle Her hair is like the flame of Lagoma, you cannot keep your eyes off it. Very talented woman and very pleasant as well. Yet modest. I like her.
    Maddox A master tailor, who has gone on to otherthings. She seems to be down to earth and friendly.
    Maeve She is so funny! I love how she can give Kieran and Fergus a hard time in such hillarious ways.
    Marcas A proper Northern lass with fire and sass to match her hair, and someone I'll welcome at my side with a sword or a bottle. Or a sewing needle, should she break it out.
    Marian A diamond in the rough. Quick to defend against an offense, but seems to fit in well here at Redrain. There's a hint that she feels deeply for those she cares about.
    Mason Some people you just know are good people through and through. Mason believes Morrighan to be one of those people. He didn't have to hear her speak for long before coming to that conclusion and he hopes to get to know her better in the days to come.
    Meriah I like the way she talks. And I don't just mean her views on society. Seems like a fun knight, maybe she'll need patchin' up sometime!
    Mikani I don't know if fire is red because of her hair or if her hair is red because of fire.
    Mirk Fiery Sword of Farhaven. Keeps my cousin humble, eleven to two is impressive.
    Niklas Master seamstress. I've seen some of her designs before. One of Arx's best kept secrets.
    Niklas She's the Gyre's daughter. And I think she killed him? I mean, she seems very nice, but talk about peaking early.
    Petal She is a new knight! I remember her from the siege battle and she fought very bravely. Her clothing is amazing too.
    Quenia I didn't quite catch her name, but she seemed interesting all the same. I'm not sure that I could ever match her fondness for whiskey, however. Rum is where it is at. Or, you know, wine.
    Reese A knight of Redrain who did some super great things saving us from the sea beast. She is a hero with redhair and alot of spirit.
    Rook Dame Morrighan, a seamstress but also now a knight. Rook has agreed to teach her how to polish her linguistic talents, which sometimes just starts with elecution lessons. It might take a while, but Rook is a gifted tutor.
    Roran A strong woman, with a devoutness to family that I have rare seen in others. I pray that she returns to us so that I may hear how she has changed.
    Rowenova I first saw her seamstress work before I ever met her. When I did, she was not only warmly welcoming but sincerely caring, wishing well my Arx stay despite the culture shock. We have had some hilarious times so far, from a chance meeting in my Lord's rooms to hanging out in the Spirits to brawling lessons where I picked up valuable knowledge, and so on, and she is always fantastic!
    Roxana Dame Morrighan is personable and has excellent taste in jewelry, I'll be seeking out her jeweler soon.
    Sabella A friend of Master Voss, I can barely understand a word she says but she seems to be quite nice! At least, her voice is very pleasant to listen to!
    Sanya She was helpful enough to give me information on the cost of items I was interested in even without me purchasing from her store. I admire her generousity.
    Sasha I am glad to finally have met the Sword of Farhaven, she is lovely to conversation with and I look forward to getting to know her better.
    Sivard I've only known her during our venture with the Seacaller, she will be one to keep an eye and a blade at the ready when around.
    Sophie Ahh, a kindred spirit!
    Sorrel Although we've never really interacted prior to today, I found that the dame is a useful asset to any team, and I'd be pleased to go on further adventures with her.
    Sparte I think I saw my stoat chasing her raven once. She didn't catch it. Which is probably why I still have a stoat.
    Sven She likes things on fire, I think I can work with that.
    Tanith How do you talk to a woman that your mother has built up as a defining artist in her field for a decade or more? It's like standing in the light of a legend or some shit, I don't even know how I managed to introduce myself without falling over or swooning. Thankfully, she tolerated me easily enough and accepted my request. I'm shocked she understood anything I said, honestly.
    Tarik She has no fear. I do not know many people who would stick food up a Prince's, let alone the Minister of Defense's nostril. Fergus towers over her too. Either she is really loves a good prank, or is really good friends with the Prince that she is not worried about the outcome of her actions. It still was a joy to see her being chase by Fergus.
    Theron Dame Morrighan threw a birthday bash for herself and it had quite the turnout. Sure, mostly Redrain, but she's got a creative mind. I'd never thought of throwing wood axes as a contest!
    Valery Val and Morrighan don't talk so much, for two people working for the same House. She find her nice, though, even if most of the time she's just drinking.
    Volcica She'd set all of Arvum afire if she had to, I think. Anything to keep her people safe.
    Zoey Good to see someone found a better application for foolsbane.
