Explorer's Outift (excellent quality)

Her hair is white, hinting at the influence of snows in her heritage, and braided in the Ulfen style, though she is not Ulfen. Ornaments are threaded into the braids here and there, though not so much to be ostentatious, most being painted wood and a little silver. Her features are Taldane, her grey eyes are large and bright, owing to her Taldane side and her intelligence. Slender and poised, her mannerisms are that of someone that is used to being able to get what they want, though the mannerisms of propriety and courtesy have not been forgotten. Her clothes are one step below "finery", as finery does not last long on the road, and judging by her outfit, she is not unfamiliar with travel. A large book is at her side, and the graceful fingertips of one hand are smudged with ink.

Personality: A noble brat only recently having been able to drop the "spoiled" from the appellation, Lia is certainly no stranger to the finer things. As such, she may complain about having to do without, act haughtily, and quietly look on with disdain. Training and interaction with people have kept her attitude from becoming too unberable, but it is certainly obvious that lesson in particular was only recently learned. Disliking being unkempt, she has a surprising array of methods to maintain her appearance, and takes pride in doing so.

In the land of nobles, titles dictated what one could and could not own. The pursuits of the Bearded were often frivolous and time-consuming to her, which can be tiring for some that are heeding the call of other prerogatives. In Lia's case, the title that she held was more lip-service than anything else, but she did love the privileges that came from the status. Her family sponsored several libraries, and as a result, Lia was apprenticed there for her childhood. That suited her just fine, since she found worlds of information on places beyond Cassomir, and courtly functions were so tedious!
While apprenticed, she often found herself drawn to stories of the snowy north, enamored with the description of the fields of snow, white and glistening, or blinding in the right light. Something about the discussions of the blustery weather, evergreen trees, and the landscape felt right. The winters in Cassomir were her favorite time, and the thought of a land of winter struck a romantic chord with her. Her father remarked once that she had "her mother's blood", and that it reminded him of her so much when she would play in the snow-- when it would fall.

She was aware that her life was leading her towards the "spoiled princess" lifestyle, and rather than accept that whole-heartedly (she did like being pampered though), she decided to prove to herself that she was not what she heard the courtiers whispering behind her back! It could not be that hard, right? So, she began traveling, not to be dissuaded by however difficult that some had said it was. She was a Neve!

Under the guise of finding books for her family's libraries, she took to finding stories. When there was none to be found, she did what she could to talk to the wise ones, jotting their stories down in a journal. A little decadence would have been appreciated, and she did make it a point to reward herself whenever she could, and especially after getting a really fantastic story!

Of course, having to negotiate with unsavory people was something that she had not counted on, and servants made so many things better, she was finding. At least she had two of her own, magicked though one may be. The colder the weather was, the better she felt, so she kept at it.

Writeup: Human. Ulfen. Female.

Ash blonde hair is pulled back to reveal a full, watchful face. Shuttered blue eyes are set appealingly within their sockets. An old tattoo of a small dragon is almost hidden on the right side of her neck. A couple of inches shorter than Lía, and more generously endowed— something that still gives her some small amusement at seeing her charge sulk about it– she dresses with the practicality of a handmaiden that has seen more adventure than many. There's something curious about her, perhaps it's her company or perhaps it's simply her worldly expression that seems to imply that she's up to something.

While she has cultivated patience, she is likely to be hasty when it comes to Lia, having spent enough time around her to generally know which way she is inclined to react, and found that cutting her off before she can get a full head of steam going yields the best results. She is vicariously living through Lia a bit, since she hears her gripes and gushes, maybe one of those types that is envious of nobility, but definitely too practical to deal with the amount of "Diplomacy" (re: petty scheming) that occurs on a day-to-day basis, so she is quietly amused. Whenever she can get another skill point, It is going into Linguistics, since she has— by virtue of association— picked up a fondness for books, and is quietly frustrated by these different tongues that hold stories that she cannot know. That strong negative reaction is likely to be provoked by seafaring. Whether to a bad event, or a general dislike of the cramped quarters of seafaring ships (perhaps spoiled by being Lia's attendant), and the constant motion (carriages and balls and duties, blech) she will voice her dissent and employ what knowledge she can to find another route.

I do think they would have the tolerant-but-dry humor and enough common sense to point out the flaws in Lia's plans. Their weaknesses are likely to be bards for the stories they tell, and the words they employ so skillfully (but whose isn't?), and the little treats that are local to the places they travel.

She is more outgoing than shy, perhaps 70/30, since Lia has never seen fit to tell her to "behave like a servant", and enjoys the freedom compared to the other servants that say nothing back to their charges. She would be aware of how she's supposed to act and can do so when circumstances demand it, but thanks to Lia's disinterest in courtly functions, she has not had to do that much, and she is appreciative. Dressing up in the finery is nice, though. She does give Lia space— the better to hear some stories that she would have not gotten otherwise were she being strict about her duties— but not so much that she cannot perform her duties when needed to. They likely have not been far from the other for too long, since she would be Lia's personal attendant that her initial brattiness (that she has ruthlessly managed to stamp out— mostly) demanded she be with her at all times.

DM ONLY: Her Secret is that her lineage was cursed by a Linnorm, and it seems she inherited the worst of it (accounting for her frailty), and was sent to be an attendant, since any of the other tasks would be more difficult for her. She reads to see if there is a cure for her condition, or at the very least, a way to prevent it from affecting her descendants.
