Description: Amanda is decidedly beautiful. Divine, even. She's a few inches above average height, with a frame that's more lean than curvy, but not lacking in delicately feminine lines at her waist and hips. A cute little nose, full lips, and big chocolatey brown eyes are complemented by eyebrows a few shades darker than her hair. Her hair starts dirty blonde, then slowly turns to the color of wheat, ready to harvest, as it falls over her shoulders. Her posture is always poised and perfect, and she is almost always wearing a faint, polite smile.

Personality: Generous but not necessarily kind. Loving but not precisely warm. Amanda is an oddity. Often, she smiles and laughs and shows open affection, but just as often she's cool and distant. The latter speaks more to her actual persona. As a child, Amanda was quiet and withdrawn. She'd often interact with others only when it was necessary, or she had some great desire. She was more often reading or drawing or "playing" with her dolls (which included making them wait in line and scolding them for their rude behavior and impiety). But as an adult, she learned the value in socialization and how a display of empathy can be much more effective than an explanation of cold logic. It does not mean she's any less cold and logical at her core, nor does it make her caring smile fake. She simply offers to a situation what she believes is needed. After all, what's the harm of in putting on a bit of a show if it helps push someone toward acting properly and piously? Of course, those that know her closest will surely see that, outside of a necessary situation the woman is nothing if not impassive.

Background: Childhood for Amanda was an odd thing. Quiet, withdrawn, and seemingly in her own world (yet terribly observant of what everyone was doing around her), she came up with few friends and none of the passions that a child might have. In fact, being fastidious and proper seemed to be the only thing that held her attention. Quiet children weren't exactly an oddity in the Morgan household, and so the family knew to simply embrace what they found in this girl, and Amanda was sent off to learn how to be professional fastidious and proper.

After years of learning, during which Amanda developed a love for the Gods (above and beyond what would otherwise be expected for an Oathlander), she went to serve the Valardin family as a Court Lady. She helped more than a few princesses learn which fork to use and how to speak in just the right way to get what they wanted. All the while, as she tirelessly helped the nobility, she quietly pushed them toward what she thought was best for them. Toward the answer that was piously correct. She may have even made a fine priest, but she found the life simply too constraining. No, after years of service she opted to leave her position at court and spend some time by herself.

Amanda spent a few years travelling. She'll talk of the odd sites she saw, of the poetry she read, of the wine and food she tasted. She wanted, in her words, to see all the greatest of the Gods' work. Which, of course, were the greatest of humanity's work. And beyond those vagueries, she does doesn't share many details about her years away.

When Amanda became stationary again, it was in Arx. She quickly found herself serving Whisper House as a courtier. Unlike back in Sanctum, she was freer here to pursue her own goals, while still serving humanity, as she believes the Gods would want her to do. She comforts and soothes, she pushes and she prods, she corrects and adjusts, all to make people (in her opinion) better. She'll bring virtue to Arx, however she can.
