Countess Scythia Seliki
A sharp tongue is the only edged tool that grows keener with constant use.
Description: Loose curls of deep black frame an animated face, a pretty face, and Scythia is well aware of it. Kohl frames her amber-flecked brown eyes, but from there it's not easy to tell what cosmetics are helping along her beauty, it's all subtle and layered in mystery. Her body is as sculpted as her features, sinuous curves and long lean lines, and despite her diminutive height, she manages to move with a swaying step, flaunting her hourglass figure. She is aware that she is looked at, and often her movements are over the top, just to draw that attention further.
Personality: Scythia's mother always told her that she was pretty, and she taught her how to use that to her advantage. She, like the rest of her kin, can be stubborn and fierce, but she is many other things as well, when it is needed. Some might say that she is a talented actress, and she is, able to cry at the drop of a coin or laugh and inspire laughter with jokes and wit. What is real with Lady Scythia Redreef? That is a question that might never find an answer. She may smile to your face, but always be aware that she might be cutting you to shreds when you're gone.
Background: Once upon a time there was a beautiful Redreef lady who was born to a cousin that nobody really remembered. She spent her time learning how to be a lady, and she did a damn fine job of it. Her cousin became the Baroness and Scythia's mother saw an opportunity.
Scythia went through extra training. She studied with a few seamstresses and learned about different fashions and materials. She got educated on the various bits of gossip and events going on in Arx. She studied different Houses and how they react to all and sundry. She basically studied herself into a courtier role.
Armed with the knowledge she needs to make a difference, if not in her own life then the lives of her Redreef Family, the time had come. Her mother helped her pack the few pretty gowns that she owned, and sent her off to be of aid to her cousin.
She'll forge herself into whatever she needs to be to help her family thrive. Fashionita. Social Powerhouse. Witty Conversationalist. She can do it all, and more.
