Lady Veronica Keaton
No matter the trick, no matter how far, I am coming. You will not escape justice.
Description: She moves with unthinking grace, a byproduct of years of training with sword and shield and fist. There is a comfort, a confidence in her movements, in herself that shows in each step taken, it lends a touch of arrogance to her delicate features. Her brow is wide and smooth, her eyes sharp, intelligent and as blue as a Summer sky after a rain. Her nose is straight and set above a mouth that is too generous for the rest of her face. There is a coiled intensity around her, found in the restless motions of her long limbs; hints of a temper lurk, the promise of violence if unleashed, though it is matched in the boldness of her smiles and the uninhibited nature of her laughter. She is tall, her femininity blended well with her athletic frame.
Personality: Determination, tenacity and perseverance, thy name is Veronica Keaton. From even a young age, the stubborn resolve of this Keaton Lady was legend. When she has a target she is ferocious in her focus, all lines of thought return to the situation at hand and she will pursue her goals with a fiendish, reckless abandon that some call driven, and others call 'Oh gods, why is everything on fire?!'. On the rare occasion that she has no pressing hunt, she is just as intense in her pursuit of entertainment. One thing she rarely is, is relaxed.
Background: The second born of Ambrose Keaton of Thistle Hill, Veronica Keaton was born a force of nature and has never ceased being so. It was when she was quite young, only seven or eight years old that her mother was taken from her. A man, arrested for banditry escaped capture and as he was fleeing, sent Lady Anastasia Keaton hurtling from the ramparts, falling to her eventual death. That the man not only escaped, but killed her mother was an injustice that never stopped clawing at Veronica. She joined the family business, as it were, dedicating herself to stopping criminals, letting nothing, nothing ever get in her way of seeing justice done.
Since joining the Huntsmen of Keaton, she has brought in no fewer than one hundred and fifty bandits single-handedly, which led to her swift rise through the ranks and the inheritence of the title, Sword of Oakhaven. She has been Sword for just over a year, and is, by all accounts, doing her family proud. That being said, her dedication has resulted in three house fires, four hobbled horses, the destruction of a town bakery, the cracking of a mill stone, an entire wheat field set ablaze and the loss of her father's left eye. A whisper campaign has begun, filling the young Sword's mind with thoughts of heading to Arx. There she can continue her duties as the Sword of Oakhaven while pursuing new goals: Joining the Inquisition and becoming a Disciple of the Sentinel.
