It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.
Social Rank: 8

Hair Color: Brown

Lovely is a word that describes her well, this petite and pale-skinned young woman who carries herself with purpose. A beauty that could be breathtaking were she to employ it so, but in the day to day is much more approachable. Wide blue eyes the color of the ocean are framed with a fringe of dark lashes that shows off the exquisite color and manages to add a doelike innocence to her glances when she wishes them to. Her features are delicate, almost girlish, yet when certain moods overtake she is every inch the formidable woman. Pale skin is lightly dusted with freckles from the sun across the cheeks and nose, and her smiles are consistently engaging.
Personality: Flighty. Curious. Scattered. Noisy. Nosy, too. Moire is an animated young woman prone to laughter, overdramatics, and trying to figure out how things work. She is incredibly interested in the world and the people around her, quick to take things apart to investigate how they go back together (and to push peoples' buttons to see what happens).
Background: Moire Saltcliff remembers little of her early years. Born into thralldom, she was separated from any family she may have had early enough that she has a far easier time remembering the many, many stories she's told herself about them over the years. It wasn't until she was ten or so years old that she ended up in the same place for any length of time, her contract purchased by an apothocary that saw the potential in steady but quick fingers.
Two years ago, Moire was due to be one of the thralls released from her debt, but the man who held her contract at the time was less than honest with her (and others) about the situation. It was luck that brought the Dowager Duchess Anneke Grimhall into the shop six months later, luck that brought the girl to the woman's attention. The apothocary was punished (severely), and Moire was taken into the Dowager's household in Grihem's Point and trained as a household servant.
The young woman's talent for painting was discovered and then encouraged while in the Dowager's care. With her skill outpacing the tutors Anneke had available, she has decided to send the young woman to the family in Arx, where she can continue her employment and hopefully further develop her skills.
