Marquessa Eilonwy Blackwood

In some mysterious way woods have never seemed to me to be static things. In physical terms, I move through them-yet in metaphysical ones, they seem to move through me.

Social Rank: 4
Concept: Northern Apothocary
Fealty: Redrain
Family: Blackwood
Gender: Female
Age: 18
Religion: Shamanism
Vocation: Apothecary
Height: 5'
Hair Color: Chestnut Brown
Eye Color: Hazel
Skintone: Porcelin

Description: Petite, Eilonwy stands at five feet tall. Her brown hair hangs in curls to the middle of her back and frame a thin, fine boned face. A delicate nose balances full lips and large hazel eyes. She wears simple clothes, chemises and layered skirts with her lined, long cut vest to keep of the chill of northern weather.

Personality: Unburdened by the social structures of Arvum's domesticated populace, Eilonwy is spirited. She smiles readily and often. Hers is a chin kept up right and she often finds reason to laugh. Underneath all this however is a thread of violence. She might love the lighter side of life, but she will do what she must to survive.

Background: Raised in a small tribe allied to the Blackwoods, Eilonwy grew up learning the ways of the wild. For the most part her family and the tribe survived the squabbles and land struggles between tribes. When Brand began his recruiting in the north her tribe and family were slaughtered down to a few men and woman. That was the first she ever held a blade. The Blackwoods took in the last of her people and ultimately they all bent knee together to the Crovane.

  • Name Summary
    Agnarr A prodigal. Doesn't seem keen on stripping or having odd hairstyles or blood sacrifices, so seems better than many of them.
    Alexis Mistress Eilonwwy Thunderoak. A charming and gentle(?) Prodigal of the Northlands. Another commoner with an understanding of the lament that is loving those who have other obligations.
    Arcelia Eilonwy came in from the storm that I suspected might be The Gyre's work. She stripped down in front of everyone and changed into my dress, she joined in laughter and fun, and she apparently has a thing for Karadoc. Seems like a good woman to me. I hope she comes back.
    Arianna She is sweet and has a good head on her shoulders. I like that she is one of the people and I'm instinctively protective. Perhaps in time she and I might be able to work closer together, I wonder which fealty she owes her allegiance to?
    Calaudrin I witnessed Eilonwy do the most magnificent thing with Lady Khanne. Beyond words. I know who to call if I need some help with uh, things. That I don't understand. Fuck, I don't know how to explain this. Still in shock.
    Cirroch A woman who works hard for her Lord and seems to be a thoughtful and curious sort. I imagine she must serve him well.
    Delilah A battle-medic who is unfortunately to be stuck in the city instead of going out onto the field in the upcoming war for... Whatever reasons. Sometimes you're forced to be in disappointing circumstances and all you can do is surround yourself with friends to share drinks with - I understand this more than you know.
    Echo She sure loves talking in Northlands Shav! At least she tried to keep me in on the conversation. Still, it reminds me of when I first came up north. I should really learn that language.
    Gwenna Gosh, I like this woman already, even though we are hardly all that acquainted. She has a dry humor not unlike my own and seems to care for Lord Asger, as well as take no guff from him. Hopefully I will get to know her better the longer I am here in Arx.
    Killian Any person who would move through the chaos of that flame and blood filled battle, seeking out those who were injured and attempting to see to their care...that is a person of considerable worth and merit. I respect her greatly.
    Lucita An acquaintance of Estaban's that he introduced me to. A healer that seems to have come through a lot already in her life. She is an interesting person to talk with and look forward to getting to know her better.
    Maeve She seems so confident to me! She is another Apothecary and I would love to work with her in the future.
    Merek %bMerek thinks that Eilonwy is a good fighter, though she seems to have a lot on her mind sometimes. He'd fight alongside her anyday though, but he does think she needs practice!
    Reese I am sorry that she got sick in the Gray forest, but thankful she was willing to do the patrols. I admit that I don't know much about her, but I would like to learn more. I think that she is very brave.
    Shard I don't know much about this woman yet. She seems to care about people. A healer, so I guess that's to be expected. She went on Aiden's mission though.
    Sigurd Lovely and precious as the first bloom of spring after the snow.
    Sparte A nice shaman from the northern region. I havn't gotten to know her well yet, but she is genuine in wanting to help people.
    Tallius Though she seems obviously new to the city, she seems to be capable and kind, and I hope that we'll have the opportunity to get to know one another in the future. Tallius recognizes the 'new to the city refugee' sort of vibe and certainly identifies, and will help her however he can.
    Theron Stewardess of Crovane, apparently. Very pleasant to speak with, although I am interested in what exactly her duties would take wrestling.
    Violet I like this woman. A healer and a tribeswoman from the north, we share a similar grim past. We had a good evening of drinking and sharing misery, but despite that I look forward to more cheerful interactions.
