Description: Since joining the Whispers in her youth, Dianara has always been a pretty wren amongst a flock of swans. While her face and figure are undeniably pleasing, she is no breathtaking beauty, but, as she's grown older, her bearing and manner have acquired a certain dignity that seems to make her appear more attractive than her physical features suggest. Warmth and gentle humor radiate from her blue eyes and wry smile.
Personality: She's never been the life of the party, but Dianara is the Whisper one seeks out if they desire pleasant conversation over a drink at said party. Hers is a way of languid kindness and warmth with little that seems to make her excited or out of sorts. Her companions and students would swear they've never seen her lose her temper. She seems to drift through the world as if propelled by a gentle breeze, unperturbed and unbothered by struggle and strife but willing to assist where she can.
Background: Dianara was born one of half a dozen children to a successful smith in Sanctum but showed no particular aptitude toward the craft. Her clever nature seemed to suggest a career in the Faith for the girl and was definitely the course her family intended for her. Yet, before any vows could be taken, her own drive took her in the direction of the Whisper House to which she arrived with nothing but the clothes on her back and an eagerness to be trained. She learned quickly and developed a reputation for good humor and pleasant company.
Eventually, her career took her in the direction of teaching. For a decade, she has traveled the length and breadth of Arvum, finding many noble and wealthy common families across all the fealties who desired a Whisper for instruction on etiquette and good manners. Her genial nature and thorough instruction have earned her a stellar reputation and her services have been in very high demand. Yet, despite that popularity, Dianara has decided to return to Arx and the Whisper House with the twin aims of offering her support and assistance to the new Radiant while also renewing her acquaintances in the city.
|Astyr||She's terrifically clever. There's a warmth in her that could stand against the fiercest winters.|
|Emrys||Of all the apprentices I taught, she is the one that chose a path closest to my own, in its own way. As a mirror's reflection is alike, so is it opposite, and our situation does not differ in that regard.|
|Giulio||Ah, smiles that deceive and deceptions that tell the truth. What a lovely world we live in, albeit from time to time.|
|Icelyn||Warm and comforting in the face of shock and injury. That is more than some would be.|
|Josephine||There is no small amount of delight when one gets to sit with her and just speak. Family can be soothing.|
|Juniper||All credit is due: in the midst of screams, blood, a panicking crowd, a stampede of frightened humanity, she kept her head, she kept her wits, she did what needed to be done. Silk /is/ known for its strength, after all.|
|Lora||A Whisper full up to the brim with ideas and seeming admirable, albeit aggressive, adamance to see them come to fruition. I may have to seek her out if I find myself in need of a project championed in the social field.|
|Ludwig||A rather unassuming commoner in many ways, from her clothing to her appearance both. I wonder what it is that she does for a living? Still, she seems pleasant and contributed things to the conversation. An enriching experience, from a good storyteller.|
|Maja||Thank goodness I am not the only one who seems so utterly startled by .. the reality of things. She looked like how I was feeling and it was nice to focus on comforting her rather than face my own shock. She seems very nice. I will have to seek her out in the future.|
|Reese||I think we are lucky to have her with us! She seems graceful and intelligent like one would expect of a whisper and also like she tries very hard and well she seems very experienced too.|
|Reigna||I feel as though before we met I was a lump of clay. Full of potential, but utterly unfocused. Your guidance made me into someone I was glad to be. I might not have been effusive, but your kindness, your gentle guidance turned a reticent young girl and polished her into a young woman. I am always in your debt.|
|Selene||The finest of Whisper House know more than to listen. They think. They question. With the wisdom cupped in her hands, Dianara stands poised to make a significant impact on the Compact. Doubtful few will ever recognize her velvet touch, but they will know her as a courtier of the highest water. I know quality when I see it.|
|Tyrus||She talked me into helping orphans and turn them into sailors. I'll have to watch that one, she's entirely too persuasive with her good causes.|
