Countess Tyche Inverno
The jewels of the islands aren't always stone.
Description: Small, but curvy, she has as much attitude and charm as someone twice her size might have. Her hair is a rich light auburn, brightly sparking like fire when the light is just right. Her skin is pale, and remains pale no matter how much exposure to the sun she ends up with, when it's too much sun she ends up burning instead of tanning.
Personality: Tyche is the sort of social butterfly that is always invited to the best parties, or just throws them herself, knows who is who, and has her finger on the pulse of whatever social circles there are present. She's bright, fun, funny, and goes out of her way to make people comfortable in her presence, even those that are not usually the social sorts. But beneath all of that is someone that's clever, and knows that sometimes a situation needs to be manipulated in her favor, and she's willing to make that happen.
Background: Inverno is a small house, and it was something of a surprise once when someone from the much larger house of Pravus wanted to arrange a marriage with them. The rumors said that it was because of love, but no one really knows any more why, or if they do, they don't talk about it. The product of that union, however, was Tyche Inverno.
There was always something about her, a steel beneath the silk that was hard to miss even when she was a young child. She was always sweet, kind, but out for herself, be it getting the best toy or that very first creation of the season so that she, and no one else, would be the talk of the town. When she got older she was fostered in Setarco among her father's family, the Pravus. While there she attended the courtesan school, learning the finer arts of diplomacy and etiquette. She excelled at things, and chose to take up a position among them, splitting her time between Setarco and Caina over the years with her time decreasing slowly in Setarco as she got older, and increasing in Caina. However, Caina is small, and she is not as much in demand there for throwing parties or helping to smooth out ruffled feelings, so she began to travel around the islands, making herself available to other Houses when they may need someone with her skillset.
