I have the advantage of Noble Birth, but I don't want the responsibility

I fled my family to escape an arranged marriage. Though have issues as to whether they even care.
Laris is unmistakeably a member of the nobility, her bearing, manners and delicate appearance all declare it for anyone who is paying any attention to see. Her clothes may be cut to simpler styles but the craftsmanship is impeccable, her gear is decorated and polished.
Laris was always the black sheep of the family, a long history of both getting into trouble and getting others into trouble, whether from being where she's not supposed to be, or talking to those she shouldn't be. Her family despairing tried to marry her off to a lesser known noble, trying to quietly put her out of the public eye as it were, but after a heated argument she left her family lands to find her own way in the world.
Sometimes she wonders if leaving caused more embarrassment to the her family, or if they were just relieved she'd gone.
As a young girl Laris lapped up the tales of her ancestors slaying dragons and defeating foul evils. Even as an adult, knowing that many od the details may have been exagerrated, she still longs for a return to the adventure and heroism of times gone past. Her family now seems to be nobility for nobilities sake, with none of the true noble demeanor that she expects. She has taken it upon herself to remind people how a noble should act and inspire those around her.
