Lyneth Faerald





-------------------------------

[OOC Information]

Your Name: Rae
RP Experience: On and off through the years
Your Character's Player Base: Karen Gillan

-------------------------------

[Basic Information]

Character Name: Lyneth Faerald
Character Age: 16
Gender: Female
Birthday (including year): April 13th, 225
Home Castle/City: Caerthynas, Caelain
House [Birth and Marriage if applicable]: Faerald

-------------------------------

[Appearance]

Written by Latara
She has hazel eyes and the red hair typical of her mother's house. She has a slim, almost boyish figure and recently had a growth spurt that put her at 5’6”. Because of her figure, she tends to wear gowns that artificially give her curves, and is very particularly about gowns. She tries to dress well and showy enough for her station all the time, even when not at court.


-------------------------------

[Personality]
Written by Latara

Lyneth has a sharp wit, and sharp mind, which while she was young, brought her trouble. Many people did not take well to a small girl correcting them. Since then, she has come to realize that often these things are best hidden, revealed only when it best suits the user. Now, she could pretty convincingly pass for a dim-witted noblewoman content to gossip should she need to, but that's not something she would do around her own castle. Really, she prefers to deal with people straightforwardly, but not to the point of getting herself in trouble. No, she'd much rather stay under the radar and do what she wants to do than constantly be under fire.

Lyneth is bossy, strong-willed, a perfectionist, and can come off cold, even cruel. She isn't, really, she just chooses very selectively those she cares about. If you aren't in that group, yes, she can be cruel, but never without a purpose behind it. Her family is most important to her, and her friends scattered across various of the Houses that Faerald has close dealings with. She's certainly not warm, but she's very loyal. She would do absolutely anything to protect a member of her family or her family’s reputation.

Lyneth is very convinced of the far superior status of the nobility, especially the province Lords. There have been some whispers that she's far too haughty for a mere cousin of a Lord, but she takes none of it to heart. Her birth is noble whether they like it or not, and Faerald blood is Faerald blood no matter where on the tree it lies. She thinks the noble way of life is amazing, but truthfully, she has lived somewhat sheltered from the cruelties of it. Her cousin (once removed) Tysilio is a kind and fair man, and she doesn’t quite realize that this may not be true in all Houses.

Thus far, she has had no interest in the games men and women play amongst one another. She doesn't see the purpose of it, and she certainly doesn't see herself entertaining any gentleman aside from her future husband, whoever that may be. She has no interest in sex, but realizes that her future husband will expect heirs and is prepared for that possibility. She's not even particularly interested in the gentle flirting girls her age are expected to do to try to lure proposals - she's well aware that her House is far more likely to gain her a husband. She's more interested in the politics of court life than anything else.

-------------------------------

[History]

Written by Latara

Lyneth was the first born to Uthaer Faerald and Annalisa Alysworth. When she was with the tutors, Lyneth excelled at all her lessons, constantly in search of more information, and dutifully completely all her needlework, music, and lessons in hostessing that young girls were expected to take. She tended to order Thelyn around, being the elder sibling, and still does.

Nearly as soon as Lyneth could talk, she developed a smart mouth. Small for her age most of her life, she was a rather unassuming presence amongst the people of Faerald unless she decided to chime in with advice. Luckily, most had come to expect it, but eventually her mother told her that she had to stop, it wasn’t fit for a Lady and she would soon become one. She learned to listen more, and talk less, and has become a better mind for court politics because of it.

Lyneth loves to read about histories, and her favorite subject is the uprising in Lacharn and the other province’s aid that led to the creation of Forsilvra. She read through all the legends of the Five Horns when she was younger, and moved on to any concrete history that she could find in the libraries of the Faerald castle. She has no wish to fight in any battles, but finds the politics that surrounded the wars and the heroes that fought the battles endlessly fascinating.

The plague hit Caelain, and it hit Faerald hard. The Queen, originally a Faerald, died in Belleile, and Maereus Faerald died with her. Lyneth had hoped it would stop there, but it also killed Tysilio’s youngest son and his brother. The last few years, people have been collectively holding their breath, waiting for the plague to strike those closest to them, and Lyneth was no exception. But the plague seems to have passed now, and court seems to be on its way to returning to normal, albeit warier. Lyneth is ready for this, she is nearly sixteen, almost grown, and knows this is a crucial time for her future.

Addition by Rae

When Lyneth was young, her father was taken as a prisoner of war. Assuming her husband was dead, Annalisa moved her household to be closer to her family, the Alysworths. Three years later, Uthaer returned and took the family back to Caethynas. Annalisa grew distant from her husband, and Uthaer didn't try to woo her. He started leaving on campaigns more often. Lyneth was usually caught in the strain between her parents but always took her mother's side. She figured that they had been fine without him.

Lyneth became a lady in waiting to Princess Aurora Fortenot. She enjoyed always being at court and the chances to listen into the politics while other girls made eyes at all the men. After a while she received a letter from her father asking her to return home due to her mother being ill. The young girl was torn between staying at court and her obsession with being the perfect prim and proper lady and going home to her dearly missed family. The decision was made for her when Princess Aurora dismissed her ladies in waiting due to the war and it's surrounding circumstances. Lyneth then was able to board a ship and travel home.



-------------------------------

[Writing Sample]

"Pull it tighter, I want the figure of the young woman I am." Lyneth told her handmaiden, both hands on the railing of her dresser as she sucked in her breath. The laces of a cream colored corset pulled tighter, putting more pressure on her ribcage. The dress was lavender with an intricate design in pale gold, embellished with seed pearls.

The handmaiden led her to a full length mirror. Lyneth surveyed her appearance. Every strand of red hair was in place and her corset made the most of her small bust. The freshly sixteen year old held an air of grace, her posture always straight and her head held high, "This will do quite well," she said, more to herself than her maid. Her insecurity was something she hid well away into the deepest depths of her person. The Faeralds and Alysworths were both handsome families, Lyneth was no exception, except that she wasn't as full figured as her cousins.

Those thoughts always got pushed to the back of her mind. Faeralds always married well and unlike her cousins, Lyneth didn't concern herself with the flirtings of the other girls. Her father would find an acceptable groom for her one day. The only concern she had was the man's rank and her own vanity. Dear gods, not a fat man.

I personally would like a bit added to the history about what she's been up to -- being a lady in waiting, how she feels about being dismissed and having to return home to Caerthynas, etc. to where she is now -- and I think the picture needs to be enlarged. Perhaps @Jenn can help (I am bad at it or I would!)

So this profile was written way prior to Uthaer and Annalisa being crafted, which means most of it being ported over in the history doesn't mention a single thing about the fact that her father disappeared for 3 years as a prisoner of war, and that her mother had the family relocate to Porthaeron during that time frame. When her father came back there's been a lot of turmoil along the way leading up to current events.

Technically this application should probably be a re-assessment of the character rather than a direct port over. Lyneth's perception of her parents is very different now, with her being closer to her mother and now she's completely distant with her father. So I think it would highly benefit you having a discussion with both Friday and myself over the course of the weekend so that we can steer you through the highlights of what has happened.

I think personality-wise there might not be many changes in that area. But history will need a bit of a re-work because it's not painting the entire picture, and the part it's missing would have a serious impact on Lyneth as she stands now.
