Description: Silken black hair falls in a sheet, barely gracing her shoulders, falling to the small of her back. The contrast between the pale cream of her complexion only emphasizes the darkness of her blue-black hair. Fine brows wing over a set of wide eyes. Black lashes frame a pair of exquisite blue eyes, the irises edged in a darker blue. Her features are delicate, almost doll-like, lending her a beauty that is at once fragile and sharp, like a glass blade. She is of just over average height, five feet seven inches, slender, her curves are subtle but there is no denying her femininity. She is a study in contrasts, of dark and light. Fragility and strength. A hint of something potentially sweet with just a touch of danger.

Personality: When she left for her marriage, she was a demure, blushing bride that was known to be charming but practical. Safe. Her return to the fold has seen some changes. This Mabelle is sharp and possibly dangerous to touch. She remains as charming as ever, but there's a more caustic edge to her humor these days. Something jaded and cynical from the things she's seen, from information she's researched. Her style is more risque too, once you get comfortable in that Lycene style of dress there's no real going back, is there?

Background: Mabelle Laurent was born into a more distant branch of the Laurent line, pretty far removed from any potential chances to inherit the duchy but not so far removed that she wasn't good marriage material. So as these things tend to go, she was found a suitable match with House Hawkmour. She wasn't thrilled with her 'older' husband, a man in his early forties who had already been married once before with children not much younger than herself. But it was asked of her by the late Duke Edmund Laurent, so she agreed to her distant uncle's request.

Mabelle was pretty, charming and most importantly, far more clever than her family had realized. She settled well into her new life and even managed to form an alliance with her new husband. One that didn't involve her sleeping in a different bed most nights of the week. Her hobbies and interests grew during her time in the Lyceum and she developed a close bond' with the family apothecary, a rather eccentric woman that spent a significant amount of time in a lower levels suite (read: basement) of the castle.

It was here that she learned the healing arts as well as other more esoteric subjects that most in the Oathlands would have shied away from or condemned. She became quite skilled at mixing and matching different compounds and while crafting isn't a thing nobles do for silver, she enjoyed it nonetheless and took great pride in what she created.

However tragedy struck when her husband, a rather shrewd lawyer with numerous political connections turned black in the face and expired at dinner. There were countless suspects and Mabelle unfortunately ended up on the list. Largely due to the mercurial nature of their relationship and her now expansive knowledge of a trade that could lead one to believe she might have known /how/ to poison her husband.

Not having quite the needed connections to survive such a scandal, she made an impassioned plea to her distant cousin the duke to be allowed to rejoin the family now that her marriage was tragically ended. With approval granted from all parties, she's gone to join the Laurents in Arx and hopefully have a fresh start there.

  • Name Summary
    Adalyn I've a feeling she has as much a propensity for getting into trouble as I do. Perhaps we will have to see what mischief we can get into soon!
    Adrienne I met the Lady Laurent for the first time while in Arx, to my own regret. Belle is a self-professed social butterfly, and a woman who knows everyone. Who could be more valuable of an acquaintence to a stranger to the city than that?
    Aedin A pretty and sociable young Lady.
    Aerandir A chance meeting within the Shrine of the Lost. Her ladyship seems more open and affable than most ladies I have met in recent memory, a refreshing change of scenery, especially in the wake of her offer to help me adapt once more. Lovely dogs to boot, no less! I shall have to ruffle their ears again...
    Aethan A Laurent lady, very pleasant company.
    Agostino An amiable noblewoman with an apparent taste for cookies. Easy on the eyes as well, she is definitely one I'd enjoy meeting again.
    Ahmar A Laurent Lady. She seems mostly concerned by the health of the people involved at the docks. I like that.
    Aine She seems to be as enticing a person inside as she is outside. I hope that we can be great friends.
    Ajax A chatty lady, but good for her that she's learning to practice the blade.
    Alaric She put the Princess Sorrel and I to the test - a woman of beauty and grace both.
    Alarissa A nimble little laurent, filled with determination.
    Alecstazi Boisterous is not necessarily loud, but she is both. Charming though.
    Aleksei I don't know her too well, but she's had some public scuffles!
    Alessandro Lady of Laurent, and a very good traveling companion. Knowledgable in her field, as well.
    Alessia A wonderful hostess who really knows how to bring out her guests' creativity.
    Alexis Lady Mabelle Laurent is a very interesting figure. Whimsical, but in a very charming way, and she's obviously both intelligent and insightful.
    Alina She likes cake. Apparently, she eats it for breakfast. This is very odd. However, she is welcoming to me.
    Alrec I suppose I shouldn't be surprised if the doctor wants to fix me and I am sure she can but I am also sure there is a lot I can teach about the south.
    Amaranth Another lover of animals. Why, you know exactly how to get on my good side. I think we'll become fast friends.
    Amari Quite different from the other Laurents I'm familiar with, but that's not necessarily a bad thing at all. She's a delight to speak with over tea and cookies, and it's really no surprise at all that she excels at diplomacy.
    Amund The fashionable, artful and mischievous Laurent noble.
    Anisha Lady Laurent is a wondrous and bright woman - and I am sure she makes her occasional pink look -stunning-.
    Antea My first thought was that she was another flighty and frivolous noble with too much time and coin and not enough responsibility. But there is a keen mind behind that smile and she works harder than it would seem. I shall have to try to convince her that wearing dresses and dancing are not fun for me.
    Apollo Quick to soothe even the smallest of slights - and with cookies to boot.
    Appolonia Bubblacious, a term I have just invented which combines bubbly and vivacious. I think I am neither of them.
    Arcadia Quiet and poised. Definitely a real lady.
    Arianna What a gentle soul. She understood my humor and seemed nothing less than lovely. Quite something!
    Armani A musician with a fine sense of style - maybe more of a Lycene at heart than most Laurents. We'll be good friends.
    Artur A cousin that keeps many dogs. She still carries the Lycene influence with an ease that is good to see on her, and that she was more than willing to help me with my falcon will be appreciated! It's always good to find a cousin to get in trouble with.
    Asher She seems fun, and likes to buy things just because they look pretty - exactly what any merchant of fashionable items wants to hear.
    Ashur Under the concerns about mud on her gown and chatting over jewelry, she is a lady of casual strength who confronts tragedy with iron will.
    Aslaug She showed up with a beard to the Beard and Brews... and kept finding all sorts of useful things in it! I might like this lady. Go figure.
    Asralyn Pleasant, that one. Doesn't know a polearm from a broom, but generous. Not something I'm use to finding.
    Astrid A very kind customer who has offered patronage. Her heart is very clearly in the right place.
    Athaur A very curious sort. I don't think we have ever had a noblewoman wander into our expanmse before! But it was a pleasure to meet her.
    Baldessare An Oathlander who, somewhere along the way, seems to have dislodged the stick up her ass that I thought all there were born with. I may have to reconsider my opinion. At least with Lady Mabelle.
    Baltus Lady Laurent. Modest in her new appointment. I bet she does well at it.
    Beatrice "Lovely and well-accomplished." Lady Mabelle is not wrong.
    Belladonna An soulful woman with the potential for true greatness. Still an Oathlander, but there is a charm to that.
    Bellamy Mabelle Laurent is Bellamy's cousin! A member of House Laurent and such a pleasant person to be around. Don't tell anyone but she might be one of Bellamy's favorite cousins!
    Bethany A pianist, at least by her own word. I hope someday to hear her play.
    Bhandn She shared some strong drink with a young man claiming to be a Prince of House Redrain. With how the young man behaved and what he said, I can't decide if it was due to manners, risk-taking, or pity.
    Blacktongue A well dressed and well spoken lady with pretty dogs.
    Brady Are Oathlanders sexy? I didn't know they could look like this. I demand a dance.
    Braelynn I like her! She's passionate about plants, so she's good in my book!
    Braith Joyous, joyful,full of energy and verve.
    Brigida A pretty thing. I hope there is more to her than that though. Arvum doesn't need another empty-headed aristocrat.
    Cabrera Wants to do proper charity for the commoners, not just tossing gifts and silver around. That's a good Noble.
    Cahal A Laurent with memories of the Cloudspine from her childhood. What a shame I never knew her.
    Caith Finally! A person more focused on dogs than children. I no longer feel so alone.
    Calypso Lady something-or-other. Has cake.
    Caspian I can't wait for her to chide me as she patches me up after a lost duel...if I ever lose.
    Cassandra My flirtatious cousin. She has so many freedoms in her life, yet I know there was so much held over her. I can only imagine how I may have turned out with the same leniency and have to admire her for what she did with it.
    Cassian She seems pleasant enough, though not entirely all there, if she thought the pub was an apothecary's...but maybe she's just got a lot on her mind?
    Cassimir I both deeply appreciate and envy Lady Mabelle's ability to breeze into a room and command it without fear. Her confidence abounds, so much that it has the effect of soothing those who are lacking.
    Catalana She confused me for Wash's second or third love. What a strange woman. Not sure what to make of her.
    Catriona A kind as she is beautiful, this woman is the embodiment of the fine pastries she offered me.
    Cerys Lady Mabelle Laurent: Much like myself she is a wonderful dichotomy of fealties and fostering. Never let it be said that a well-rounded education doesn't give a body an edge! I would wager this woman is sharper than most give her credit for.
    Charis Bold in fashion, bold in colour, bold in conversation. She wears flair as easily as that fox stole.
    Charlotte A Laurent physician of bright beauty and wit alike. She seems like she'd be an excellent partner for tea and chitchat.
    Clara Although our meetin' was brief it seems ta me that she's a nice person. I'd love ta have a drink with her sometime when I am more awake ta actually meet her.
    Cornelius A lady I met at the Ebb and Flow. It was quite crowded and she seemed at ease.
    Cristoph May the gods help me. Between Mabelle and Braden and Eiran? I don't know how I'm going to keep my sanity. At least they all mean well. Mabelle is a sweet girl under the apparent ability to /stab/ people.
    Damik Lady Mabelle of Artshall is intoxicating. This is why one drinks milk, to not be too intoxicated. This is wise.
    Dante Incredibly beautiful, a constrast of darkness and light - like a painting or a poem. Eyes like crystals and a vibrant wit. Might be a distant cousin, but that's most of the peerage. She seems very friendly and personable.
    Darren The population minister for House Laurent is sparkling and full of love for her dogs. Others trust her with their dogs. I consider this a good thing.
    Delfina A charming woman, filled with grace and enthusiasm. I suspect we might have a few things in common, and I'd like to get to know her better.
    Delilah I like anyone willing to wear a raspberry beret. Stylish!
    Denica Lady Laurent. I had heard recently she threw quite the party. I am sure we will get along just fine.
    Denica Vibrant, floral, swirling Mabelle commands a room - have you seen her? Of course you have. And she was a vision.
    Dianna Charming, strikingly beautiful, and somehow there is a touch of the Lycene in her, I am sure of it. I shall like to see these creations of hers - if only she will not hide them under so very much fur!
    Dimitri A Lady of the Oathlands and not what I would have expected. Stunning in style and quick of tongue.
    Dio Nothing's more alluring than beauty speaking of art in an Oathlands accent.
    Domonico A Laurent. Seemingly quiet attentive. Willing to get out of her comfort zone and try something new. I approve.
    Donella The woma of scandal. I am curious to hear the story of her now dead husband, but at the same time I am curious of the woman. I am sure that she is making an impact upon the city. I will perhaps call her for tea or whiskey in the future; perhaps we can see if she is the scandal or above the scandal.
    Drusila What can I say? She's an absolute treat.
    Dustin Crystal blue orbs that trap you in her gaze. I never felt so helpless like a deer caught in a trap.
    Dycard A charming young woman, quick to smile and thankfully non-judgmental, given her introduction to me.
    Edain Charming, impressionable with an apparent business savvy that begets immeasurable success in all that she touches paired with an unexpected humility. Edain will keep the lady in mind when he inevitably needs someone gifted in the realm of economics.
    Elora Her dogs are so sweet and she is, too! I appreciate what it means to have several animals and Lady Mabelle handles hers so well. I'll have to introduce her to mine the next time we meet.
    Emily A thoughtful Lady who seems to want to keep the peace as well as offer aid and humor. A nice mix!
    Esme She seems like this is a start to a good friendship. Also. Cookies.
    Estil Sweet and optimistic young lady. I can see why Turo would like her.
    Evangeline The Lady of House Laurent is always a delight to see. She has impeccable style and is in a class all her own.
    Evaristo Charming and a real social butterfly and just as beautiful as one, as well. It was a delight to meet her at the Malvici breakfast.
    Ezra Typically there are few things that actually demand you attention. This woman's casual statement of giving someone a piece of dragonweep left you with three conclusions, she's fabulously wealthy, a jokester, or in illegal trade. At a shallow level of interaction, you hesitantly conclude the first point with the realization that another option may exist that you have yet to evaluate and may be more likely.
    Fairen A lively and friendly spirit with a great fondness for puppies. I wonder if she's a scholarly sort?
    Faye Not a typical Laurent, but pleasant to speak with and filled with creative ideas. I hope to get the chance to talk with her more in the future.
    Fecundo An entrepreneurial lady I met at the Patronage gathering on the beach. She seems to have a good broad range of interest. I hope she finds what she seeks.
    Fenia Fashionable, kind, and generous. A little distant, but also has puppies, so it balances out.
    Fiora She cuts a lovely figure but... If /I/ am being the interesting participant in a conversation, something is very wrong.
    Flavien My closest cousin and the one I find myself having lingering conversations with.
    Flynt Noble Lady that dabbles in medicine and seems to care about others. My patron!
    Gabriella I admire her dedication. It is a beautiful thing to see such drive -- even when it means being riddled with spider bites.
    Gael She fixed my hand, but hurt my soul. The worst kind of medicine-woman.
    Gaspar She's going to get me into trouble. I can hardly wait to see how much.
    Gaspard A lovely lady with a good fashion sense and intriguing stories, she seems well versed about the city and its people in general.
    Gaston She has claimed that she can brew a drink that will floor me, but taste of feet. Challenge accepted.
    Gerald An interesting young woman. Very not what I would expect from an Oathlander, but, that's alright. Stuffy sorts, most.
    Geralt If I'd not been told otherwise, I'd have sworn she was a Lycene, not an Oathlander. What? It's a compliment! No, she didn't try and poison me!
    Giuliano A devoted fan of the cookie, her shape is in no way diminished by it. I wonder if she's ever eaten a cookie while. Nevermind. But I will see how her cookie crumbles.
    Giulio How delightfully scandalous. One does so enjoy these little moments.
    Godric Physician peer and Laurent Lady. Seems to be terminally curious because she's always asking questions. That's perfect for someone that's in medicine.
    Gretchen A Laurent who has only recently returned to Arx. She seems stylish and proper, if a bit quiet.
    Gwenna My dear cousin Lady Mabelle Laurent is rather extraordinary. She has an incredible sense of fashion and has no few projects she always seems to be working on. These are not small endeavors, either, but rather ones that have heart and ambition behind them. Speaking of heart, she is also rather charitable and considers others in all that she seems to do.
    Haakon Not fond of fair hairs. Curious sort, likes being talked about. Won't chase a joke duel, at least, so there's that. Haven't seen the King yet, but she doesn't think him a looker.
    Hamish An Oathlander lady who acts more like a Lycene. Rich in stories, friends and money.
    Harlan A lovely Lady Laurent. A fun conversation, een if she selfishly won't let me steal her dog!
    Harlex I didn't mean to scare her, not really. Maybe a little. At least I got a drink with her out of it.
    Helena Full of compliments and her own beauty and grace and easily fitting in with both strangers and familiar faces alike, I found Lady Mabelle quite a pleasant conversationalist to spend a cold evening sipping whiskey with.
    Hickson A truly charming, charismatic and elegant Lady of House Laurent. She makes a room feel comfortable and her words uplift one's spirits.
    Ian Likes sweets.
    Iliana Another cousin with an eye for fashion and finances. Some people have all the luck.
    Ilira She seems of glass and marble. Wise, too, in wit and diplomacy.
    Ilsa A kind, generous, and empathetic noble Lady. It has been a true gift to have met her, and I look forward to working with her in the future.
    Imogene A pleasant and friendly conversationalist, with an eye for fashion and an escort of dogs. And also evidently /quite busy/!
    Iseulet I have absolutely no idea how I haven't met this woman before! Witty, beautiful, and makes me smile. I can't wait to run into her a little more around the city. (Have you seen her dog? IT'S FABULOUS!)
    Ishmael A charming and beautiful lady of the Oathlands.
    Isidora A lady who knows how to enjoy life. Even the little things.
    Jasher A physician. Easily underestimated at the surface, yet beneath lies a temper and wit, sharp as a new cutlass.
    Jeffeth We wish Lady Mabelle well on her project she is pursuing most ardently.
    Joaquin Do not leave it cooking for too long, or you'll waste all of the seasoning that gives it its unique taste! She's able to keep up, which is good! I can't have all of my material go to waste.
    Josephine One of the Laurents, and a lovely one at that. A joy when she comes into my shop.
    Joslyn Surprisingly pleasant. I'm not sure what I got myself roped into with her, but I think it all went far better than I had any right to expect.
    Jules A finely dressed noblewoman, she's agreed to model in a painting session after recommending I model. A pleasant potential employer.
    Julian The lovely Lady Laurent. Not at all what I picture when I think of an oathlander. But that is not a bad thing. I like to get to know her better.
    Juliette She dresses like I can only dream of dressing. It is no great surprise to learn one with such an eye for beauty would be responsible for bringing such to the Compact with the innovative weave of new velvets.
    Juneau So sweet Very Lycene for an Oathlander. Or maybe very Oathlander for a Lycene. I don't know! She has the cutest puppers!
    Kaia My darling Laurent cousin with whom I share so many interests! I would dare say she's my favorite Laurent cousin of all my Laurent cousins...which seem to be so many!
    Kaldur Never fear, my Lady, the Shrine of Lagoma's nature is rebirth. A little exploding is only a moment's a problem... and it surely wouldn't happen again. Hopefully. Sit in the back.
    Kanean She may be inspired by my dog to get her own, but none shall be as cute! Will be fun to see her by the strand again.
    Karina The Lovely Laurent Lady who lavished us with a lustrous layered apple pie. Alliteration aside, her support and praise was as sweet as her pie. She purchased a painting most dear to me, which I believe to be in good hands.
    Kasa Sweet dogs, sweet treats... And a sweet person, it seems!
    Kastelon Lady Mabelle is a playful woman, the minister of population for House Laurent, as well as many other occupations. Pity all the cakes don't make her nice and fat.
    Kedehern One of my more social family members. Always out and about, making friends. I don't have that talent, I'm afraid.
    Korka A charming Lady of House Laurent, a physical, an apothecary, and probably not a murderer. What interesting breakfast conversations were had with her.
    Kritr A Laurent Marten. Or possibly a Stoat. Not as comfortable around prodigals as she'd like to be. First woman to turn me down since the Everwinter. Won't be the last.
    Kyler She made a rather loud entrance, but she seems to be friendly and enjoys a joke.
    Lailah A pleasant lady, though I'm finding it hard to read her. I'll have to get to know her better.
    Lena Talks... a lot for someone wounded. Good to study for authority from a place of weakness.
    Lenne Jules holds her in incredibly high regard. Singularly so, I expect. So I should make sure to be on my best behavior. She's another physician too! A happy coincidence.
    Leola A polite enough noble, though she was in her element amidst silk and gold. I wonder what she makes of it all, or how much she truly thinks of it?
    Lilia Paradoxical. She claims to be a social butterfly but it is clear that there is more than meets the eye.
    Llewella She likes rum and talks freely about things far more entertaining than ledgers. This woman is absolutely adorable and precious.
    Lonzio A lovely lady who has taught me the value of reading up on the history of the noble families.
    Lora A line of connection drawn over Hawkmour's brass road. It is always bittersweet to meet someone who has these things in common, but the Lady Laurent makes this more sweet than not.
    Lore A delightful noblewoman of the Oathlands persuasion. This is the second time I've run into her and I've enjoyed both experiences. Perhaps I can help her out with something special.
    Lorenzo A cousin by marriage, this time on the Laurent side. She is delightful company at a party.
    Lottie One of the most delightful members of the Peerage I have met and also an avid fan of cookies! We worked together on a birthday party and she was wonderful to work with. Enthusiastic, but not demanding. To my fellow crafters I would say, if you get a commission request from the lady, TAKE IT. She is neither stingy nor pushy and knows that quality comes at a cost.
    Lucita A cousin of Braden Laurent, pleasant natured Lady who likes music and plays instruments but is not a singer.
    Lucrezia Sweet and fun, with a hint of serious underneath. She works hard to do good things for her family, I can respect the resonate with that. We might be odd to be friends, but it seems we may come to call each other that one day.
    Maeve I got to overhear a discussion on some work she did to help establish trade in different lands. I find her solutions innovative and creative!
    Mailys Ah, yes. The Oathlander turned Lycene, and Oathlander again. One has to wonder what secrets she holds.
    Malcolm She's got the gentility of the Oathlands with the Lycene edge that's always so interesting. Also, she eats cake as though she's stabbing it -- this means she must be a fun person!
    Maren A scion of the Laurent family, this young woman has a charming manner, a gracious spirit, and an enjoyment of the social whirl. May she enjoy these days of dancing with all that life in Arx has to offer.
    Margerie The most fashionable of the Laurents, and perhaps the most likely to relate to my experiences now that she is older and wiser.
    Marisol She is a strong lady, one that I can admire for her abilities that stand in contrast to my own. Brave. Adventurous. She reminds me of my twin. I have long been in need of a friend like her.
    Martino A woman who adores Lyscum fashion. Doesn't that tell you something?
    Marzio A friendly Lady of house Laurent. Cake in the morning, it was a surprise, but not an unwelcome one.
    Mason Mason is a fan of the Laurents and Mabelle seems to be cut from the same cloth. Friendly, polite, and well-versed in treading the social waters, the prince enjoyed speaking with her when they first met.
    Medeia Breathtaking. Both in figure and fashion. And she has a cookie attendant!
    Mercedes Sweet, generous, and kind. All too easy to be charmed by. I confess a wariness at such, but any friend of my sister's is a friend of mine. Until they're not. Still... she gave me cookies.
    Merek I like friends that like to make their cookies also!
    Miella Clearly a woman with an eye for taste, hopefully a returning customer and chance at expansion for the family business down the line. The doggos are adorable too.
    Mikani Cookie lover, especially of the artistic variety.
    Miranda More than she seems. Another doctor, which is always good, but quick, too. Leaving a bad situation before it became terrible. Good for her. Look forward to getting to know her better. Could be handy to know her!
    Mirella I'd like to talk to her again. She seems like she'd be someone worth getting to know. Someone people just have that air about them, I suppose.
    Mirk A newcomer to Arx. Strangely disconnected from her family, but hopefully that will change.
    Monique A damsel in distress, and yet, for all that, I think she has stores of untapped courage and reserves of brilliance that I cannot even begin to guess at. But I should like to try.
    Morgan Lady Mabelle Laurent of the two cousins, the non boring one! I like her life goals. Also, funny. Nice eyes. Doesn't sing?
    Nadir Kind and welcoming, I met Lady Mabelle Laurent in the lobby of Saving Grace, performing her admirable duties Physicianing? Physicianizing? Healing. She was more than willing to helping a new gentleman in the city to find his bearings. I look forward to many more future conversations.
    Naka Laurent cousin. Rather busy and knowledgable and helpful. Really, if you're the third, though, you tend to somehow inherit the other two. Smart enough to not let herself be overwhelmed by it all, either.
    Naomi I was dubious when she arrived to the training center in impractical clothing and with her dogs in tow. Then again, she says she's a diplomat and a healer, so maybe there's more to her than meets the eye.
    Narcissa Eccentric in a subdued, well masked sort of way - a practicality that asks why she bears the name of Laurent, and none of the Lyceum.
    Neilda I'm sure I confused her, but that seems to be what I was doing that night in general.
    Neviah At first, unnerving. Unsettling. Put me on edge. I am unused to people being so warm and friendly. Perhaps she isn't so bad after all. She did give me time to try to open up. I tried. I think I failed, but...
    Niklas Lady of Artshall, though with a touch of the Tor. An interesting combination. Seems to have had a bad run-in with a mutual acquaintance. Will have to follow up on that.
    Nina She ran a lovely poetry event, and is an astonishingly fancy dresser! Perhaps some day I will learn to be so bold in taste!
    Norwood Her sorrow seems to hang much less heavily upon her. For that perhaps Lord Braden's arrival could be considered a good omen. However, I hope it does not encourage her to the other extreme.
    Oddmun -another- supplier of free edible treats. Have to wonder how it is not everyone in Arx is enormous. Still, pleasant enough company, and it takes a kind soul to hand out food for free.
    Olin A noblewoman and an alchemist! A surprising combination, but her interest in the craft appears deep and she spoke to me first as a peer.
    Olivia One of the Laurent Ladies. Not exactly what one pictures when they think 'oathlander' but amazing none the less.
    Olivian Lady Mabelle Laurent. Purveyor of cookies and Artshall velvet. She seems very sweet.
    Olivian A woman of taste, elegance and wisdom. She seems the sort of person who everyone should want to know and be close to.
    Ophne Lady Mabelle is probably the type of person that my mother wishes I would be. Apart, that is, from her confessing that she fell under suspicion of poisoning her husband, of course. I wonder if she did. There's nothing like hiding a secret in the open they say.
    Orathy She be hurtin me damn feelins, callin me Rat. Shit, and her laughter is like a damn knife to the gut. Ahh, ya never know what sort of shewolf yer messin with until ya mess with 'em.
    Orchid She is forward, I think? Still tryig to get a proper opinion on how she is.
    Orelia I'd have never believed she was an Oathlander. I doubt they know what to do with a woman like her.
    Orick Kind, curious, and seemingly affected by her own beauty... just the sort of noblewomam who might purchase my Delicate Wares. I do hope we can run into each other again soon.
    Orrin A generous and warm woman, it seems. Not that it comes as any surprise - I've never heard a single ill word spoken about a Laurent.
    Orvyn Another Laurent, kind and caring, though wishing to set fire to fields of beans all for a cake... the world has not been kind to such tyrants... still cake is cake and one should respect such things, regardless of the atrocities and mass incinerations they may cause. Oh, and she does seem rather lovely as well, Mabelle, not the thought of cake, though that seems nice too.
    Otho She's terribly enthusiastic about, oh, everything. One should take precautions not to be infected by it.
    Pasquale She has a solid head on her shoulders.
    Pepper Bold and fellow cake lover. Seems like a good person to talk to so far. Look forward to more opportunities to talk here in the future.
    Peri She enjoys hearing about the unknown and far off places. Tell her a story!
    Petal She seems nice and interested in all sorts of clothing, not just noble clothing.
    Pharamond The Lady Laurent is certainly the most fashionable physician and has a bedisde manner that makes going to the hospital a lot more pleasant
    Piccola She seems nice and welcoming, and she holds Sabine in high regard, but I won't hold the latter against her.
    Porter Lady Mabelle Laurent as graceful in social situations as she's always been.
    Quintin I've seen her blush quite a bit, and I believe she's good with animals?
    Raimon A friendly Noble Physician. Good sort to know
    Rane A lovely woman from our liege house. I hear her name whispered all throughout Arx for her philanthropy and sweet spirit. I hope to know her more.
    Ras She has fruit and nice ideas. Kind ideas. I think she's probably a good person.
    Raven First time getting stitched up without whiskey, not my favorite way, but she's got nimble fingers, and has a great bedside manner.
    Rawen An intriguing woman, though I suspect she may not be fond of my preferences on patterns and colorings of animals.
    Raziel A Lady who has befriended one of our newest members of the Compact, and with a cousin who may prove useful besides. Young, but not mindlessly so. We'll see what the future brings.
    Reese An interesting Lady with a great hat. She seems to have an inner strength and not mind brawl and the like.
    Reigna She seems sweet and good hearted -- but she is Laurent so is that any surprise? She clearly has a desire to help those around her. A trait I find most admirable.
    Revell I didn't try her sweet - my tooth is decidedly not sweet - but it was kind of her to share with everyone. I really, really like her dog though. The bow, the panting, the way she looks so happy when you rub her behind the ear.. Eherm. I was supposed to tell you about Lady Mabelle, wasn't I?
    Rey A warm and friendly woman, from a large family, and who shares many of my own interests. With a lovely laugh smile.
    Richard People like Mabelle remind me why I do what I do, and stand against what I stand. An Arx where people are allowed to live so freely and speak of such fanciful topics is something that must needs be protected.
    Ronja I think I'd get along well with this one. She seems like she knows how to find the fun in things.
    Rook Very conversational and talkative. Will strike a conversation on anything it seems and hold it. Multi-talented then.
    Rook How she keeps dog hair off of her ensembles is a secret worth selling to the fashionable of Arx.
    Roran A woman of depth, with many worries. May she never fail, but should she, I pray she will see it for the positive. Lovely hands.
    Rorik Lady Mabelle seems very pleasant. She's got really adorable dogs!
    Rosalie The social Laurent lady. I have heard much about her, thus far all of it seems to be true.
    Rosalind I bet she has stories! I wonder what they are...Aim to find out!
    Rowenova Sweet as honey, throws great parties, and spends a lot of money on her clothes (but they are amazing, and she designs them herself), fun to be around, and a bit forgiving when it comes to financial questions!
    Rowley She is a chatty one. But not in a way that is annoying. She has an appreciation for the arts, which is refreshing to find. Hopefully we will have future dealings.
    Roxana Sweet, beautiful, and a talented alchemist. I like her.
    Rukhnis A fellow physician dedicated to bringing together all fields of learning for the betterment of the field of medicine. I very much look forward to seeing her teaching college succeed.
    Ryhalt A frequent customer at Bold Expressions and a Laurent, so that makes her a mutually beneficial customer and someone I'm sure I'll see often.
    Rysen A creative lady of House Laurent with a great sense of humor and a willingness to embrace the spirit of the Northlands.
    Sabella Charming and funny and a great conversationalist and she knows how great the biscuits are at the Sleepless Knights! AND SHE LIKES PARTIES! Definitely best friend material!
    Sabine She is as lovely as a sun-kissed blanket of snow over fresh grass.
    Salvador An Oathlander so scandalous as to not drink milk, and cavort in Lycene bars! She has the guile of a Lycene woman, however, and a sense of fashion to match.
    Samael Quite a vision in rose gold. She offered us all cake, which was remarkably pleasant.
    Samantha The Lady Laurent is one of a kind. She has this sense of excitement about her that makes me want to stick around longer than I usually can. I'm really grateful for her charity, that cake was absolutely delicious!
    Samira A fashionista with an eye for beauty. She seems to enjoy leading by example and possesses a great deal of confidence.
    Samuele Fun and funny, she and her friends seem to know not to take life so seriously and to enjoy fun moments.
    Santiago Lady Mabelle Laurent is a bright woman of many qualities. Cousin to Duchess Calista Fidante. She has a love of pastries, and other sweet things.
    Sanya One of the sweetest people I've had the pleasure to meet in the city.
    Saoirse Lady Mabelle Laurent entered a room, sat down, and stared at me ...smiling. WTF are they doing in that fealty? are they all on drugs?
    Saverio She's not a black widow. Yet. Ruthlessness looks good on her.
    Sedna A good natured patron of the arts with an excellent fashion sense and.. a wild imagination, apparently!
    Seren What a delightful Laurent! And I think she both invited me to go swimming and may start stalking the shop. Either way, it works out for me.
    Shae A fellow dog lover it would seem, and a woman that can keep her calm in the midst of chaos. I hope to get know my new cousin more in the future, ones that don't involve burning dresses and docks. Perhaps adorable puppies, instead.
    Shazza A promising partner in beginning equestrianism. I suspect she has sweets always close to hand, a point in her favor.
    Siegward A certainly shrewd noblewoman with little to no filter when it comes to speaking her mind or favoring towards her needs. She's also generous in her purchases, and that's good- generosity I consider a moral imperative when it comes to matters of the state, and that pertains all nobles.
    Sigurd Words fail me truely. Though she does inspire them greatly.
    Silvana She seems to be all up on fashion things. She has good taste in it too. She needs a little more of a Lycene style, I think.
    Simone Entertaining, lovely, funny. I can't imagine how blind the men in our Compact could be to not be pursuing her night and day.
    Sirius A creature of sharp, mischievous wit whose book of cookie-related debts must be running out of space with all of these cookie loans.
    Sophie What a sweet woman. I should invite her for tea..
    Sunaia Oh, my, all the dogs! And quite the taste in jewelry. She simply shines when she enters the room.
    Svana A mischievous Laurent lady who knows Jules very well and enjoys fashion!
    Sven She seems trustworthy, don't you think?
    Sydney Kind, gentle, and firm with her patients. I felt she knew exactly what to do, and wasn't shy about telling me to stop doing things that would cause me further harm.
    Sylvi She correctly figured out that I am not a sailor, despite my heritage. Clever, perhaps dangerous. Will need to investigate further.
    Talwyn Her laissez faire attitude to political matters on the doorstep leave much to be desired. Her Lycene taste in fashion partly makes up for that
    Tatienne A potential customer, I hope she'll make use of my services some time.
    Tescelina A spirited Laurent lady, so very lovely. Quite the butterfly catcher, too. She could capture a star with that jar of hers, I'd bet!
    Thea Chatty, enjoys sweets. I'm sure we can find something in common.
    Thesarin Clever. Curious. See why she's friends with the Lady Monique.
    Thomas I am glad to see her doing so well in the city, and back with family once more. What she dealt with after my uncle's death, I'd not wish on anyone.
    Turo Seems to be a pleasant and friendly woman, even if she appears to like the idea of doing a census, which is just weird.
    Tyrus Lady Mabelle Laurent was met at the Ebb and Flow tavern, seeking my niece. She was polite, though unfortunately she could not stay long.
    Val A woman from the Oathlands, but from our talk, I could have easily mistaken her as from the Lyceum or the Saffron Chain.
    Valdemar Delightfully wicked, she was a source of both wisdom and much-needed levity when I ran across her.
    Valenzo Curious, but timid. She has been burned, I think, whether you can see scars or not...and haven't we all?
    Vanora The Lady Laurent is humble and sweet, as well as an unusual beauty in my favorite combination. Hint of sweet and a touch of sharp. I hope to know her more.
    Vasile She knows how to have fun!
    Venturo The Lady Laurent is clearly a lover of entertainment and games. With a touch of luck, perhaps she'll convince the Duke, too!
    Verity She went wit for wit with me at a moment's notice! Always a joy to find someone with that kind of flexibility.
    Veronica She certainly knows how to fill a room... or plaza... without much more on-hand than her personality.
    Veronica If I hadn't met her on a battlefield, I would never have guessed at the strength that hides under all that velvet and glitter. I'm impressed.
    Vicente You asked to meet her in able to get an idea for Calista to remember the other side of her family. She was able to direct you to Josephine. More importantly, she made a few dry jokes, your favorite.
    Videl A pleasant oathlander noblewoman, didn't get to meet her for very long, will have to find an opportunity for a longer meeting.
    Vitalis Quiet at first, but she opened up a good bit after the Shushing started. An apt shusher and student as well. Very perceptive.
    Vittorio She seems to wear her thoughts on the surface, but it also seems quite genuine, if not what I was expecting.
    Viviana Have I been in the isles too long? I don't recall Oathlanders being so lovely, nor such good company. And a physician, too. Goodness.
    Vulpiano A gifted lady brings sweets galore. She was convincing regarding her protege's skills, as a good patron should be, while being generous with her cake. Along with good conversation, what more could one ask for?
    Wagner A balancing act if I've ever seen one- not too offensive like other silks.
    Wash My first impression of her may have been right. But I can't blame her for making eyes at Catalana. Who wouldn't?
    Willow Anyone in a gown that lovely surely has wonderdil taste and is someone I want to know better.
    Wulfrum Lady Laurent's entourage of dogs is disruptive but an Oathlander who likes rum has acquired the right tastes.
    Wylla Very friendly, engaging, and creative if her many successful endeavors are any indication. Also, she has a very cute naming scheme for her many dogs, who must all be very sweet.
    Yelana A proper Lady with a fondness for sweets.
    Ysabel The Lady Laurent is someone to look to. Her choice in clothing is divine and her company is wonderful.
    Zara She stands with one foot planted in the Lyceum and one foot planted in the Oathlands, which leaves her poised to be an excellent diplomatic envoy to soothe the tensions.
    Zara I'll always make time for her. She never ceases to liven my day.
    Zebulon There's a certain charm about her that makes it easy to open up. I had no plans of having a brief heart to heart during morning practice, yet here we are.
    Zoey Dear, sweet cousin. Let's set the trends and make all of Arx work to keep up with us, shall we?
    Zyanya There are two stories here: the face she turns to watching eyes and the language she wears with stone and metal.
