Lady Tesha Telmar
There's no such thing as luck. Chance, favor, odds...luck? All words used by those without the wherewithall to make a plan and properly prepare for what's to come.
Description: Tesha's beauty is found in the woman's graceful, purposeful manner. In the sense of deliberateness to each and every movement or gesture, no matter how small. There is an intelligence behind those dark eyes of hers, colored the shade of a deep blue sky just before a storm. A methodical, practiced sort of look that conveys the impression that every scene before her striking gaze has already been examined and considered twice over. Tesha's dark hair falls just below her shoulderblades, usually kept back in a neat, symmetrical braid that drapes along the nape of her neck. She carries herself with poise, beautiful in both form and manner.
Personality: Independent. Headstrong. Confident. Poised. All words Tesha's become accustomed to hearing attributed to her for as long as she can remember. She gives off an immediate aura of experience, conveying the sense that she's seen more than her young age would have allowed. Courteous and polite, as a proper Telmar noblewoman ought to be, Tesha shows an uncommon ambition and drive when she applies her considerable intelligence to solving problems of politics, strategy, or economics. She's fiercely loyal to the Telmar name, and to the sense of duty that comes from being a member of the Valardin's strong right hand.
Background:     Tesha may have been born the second child of Tanya Telmar, but she has played the part of the protective elder sibling for as long as she can remember. After the passing of her father at a young age, her mother became a recluse, refusing to attend family meetings and cutting off virtually all social interaction. And so it was, at barely twelve years of age, that Tesha assumed the role of primary caretaker for her siblings. The young Telmar adroitly managed the family's affairs and business, all under the guise of providing direction from her pining mother. There was scarcely time to mourn her mother's passing, some three years later, as the family's affairs now formally passed to the responsibility of the young Telmar noblewoman.
For the next several years, Tesha quickly garnered attention among the rest of the Telmars for her skill and competence in managing her family's affairs, assuming increasing levels of responsibility in managing business on the House's behalf. With her older brother always trying to hide his nose in a book, Tesha took a more hands-on approach to learning the intricacies of businesses and alliances, skillfully weaving economic webs and trade agreements that turned the Telmarch from merely a strategic military holding to a prosperous hub for trade and business in the Oathlands.
As the first members of the family began departing the Telmarch for Arx, Tesha was among the first to join up with the Telmar contingent headed for the capital. She knows there's no chance her brother makes it a week without her around to keep an eye on him, and is eager to turn her mind to extending the family's economic reach to the economics of the capital city. She's confident that her skills and expertise will be gratefully received by the residents of the Tower.
|Aethan||Apparently studious, but also willing to brave sitting down at a table with unknown people. Probably both good qualities.|
|Amari||Very composed, polite and interesting. It's always a delight to see Lady Telmar at social events. She's a wonderful presence.|
|Cullen||Lady Tesha seems rather friendly and warm, considering I knew...practically no one. I shall hopefully speak with her more, given that the amount of people I know here numbers exactly my family.|
|Ian||The Telmars are very different from each other.|
|Jordan||She seems to be another warrior of House Telmar, but I haven't sparred her yet. She is playful and outgoing, however, and I look forward to meeting more members of this Oathlander family. So far, I've enjoyed meeting all of them and look forward to knowing this Duke Arn.|
|Vercyn||Percephon's sister, polite, well-spoken, in many ways a mirror image of Percephon. Her concern for family is strong, which speaks well of her.|
