Caprice Artiglio

Every work of art is an attempt by the god Jayus to speak to the world, and make no mistake, what I weave is art.

Description: She has about her a warmth of color -- in her firelit copper hair, in her richly complected skin. She has high cheekbones, delicate, slightly gaunt cheekbones, and above them big, bright green eyes. Those brilliant eyes are distant, her smiles elusive, beautiful. For all her loveliness, she is built like a bird: elegant in her own way, but entirely too thin. Because of her weight, perhaps, she moves lightly, each step graceful and airy, effortlessly so.

Personality: Caprice loves her life. She loves her god, and her faith, finding peace and fulfillment most rarely can claim. She loves the art she creates, the fabrics that slide through her fingers reminding her of the threads and fabric of life itself. She sees her creations more as prayers than functional garments, trying to capture the essence of a person within a commission. She is as kind and cruel as anyone can be, but is careful to protection the reputations of her patrons. She's practical, despite her fanciful thoughts of faith and humanity, truly believing one can work in the world and be close to the divine at the same time. Her fatal flaw, however, is pride, and she becomes rather... cross if someone disrespects her work, or seems callous about the gods.

Background: Caprice often receives praise as being one of the most promising talents in tailoring from the Lyceum, but she has never felt quite comfortable with the assessment. She is, foremost, simply an artist who demonstrates her talents by weaving fabrics into stunning fashions as her chosen medium of expression. From a very early age, she felt called to be one of the chosen of Jayus, feeling a spark of inspiration from the Prince of Stories. Even as a child she would idle by shrines of Jayus and toy with dyes and clothes, working ever more elaborate colorations and blends of fabric. As a young woman, her talent was quickly recognized, and at a very young age she has been given the immense honor of being appointed the tailor of House Velenosa. Caprice is fully aware that her position might well be one of the most coveted of any tailor in all of Arvum. The Lyceum are the height of fashion for the entire Compact, after all, and House Velenosa is the height of fashion for the Lyceum. But the knowledge does not trouble her unduly She is, in her opinion and without any feelings of conceit, divinely inspired.
