Dame Felicia Harrow

Some walk softly and use gentle means to open their doors. I kick the thing off its hinges.

Social Rank: 7
Concept: King's Own Wrecking Ball
Fealty: Crownsworn
Family: Harrow
Gender: Female
Age: 29
Religion: Pantheon
Vocation: Soldier
Height: 5'9"
Hair Color: Copper
Eye Color: Green
Skintone: Fair

Description: Green eyes, dark as emeralds in firelight and limned in black. A wealth of natural copper hair frequently bound in a braid and buried under her helm. Felicia's not a beauty in the traditional sense of the word, but there's a confidence in the way she carries herself; a sharpness to her eyes and a smile that frequently teases about her broad-lipped mouth that lends itself to being noticed. She's on the tall side for a woman, long of limb and strong of arm; a creature of martial prowess easily marked as such in or our of armor.

Personality: Frequently Felicia is larger-than-life in most regards. Big gestures, big words, and big actions. Where most people would seek to quietly open a door to sneak in on an enemy, Felicia is the sort to boot down the door with a shout, before charging into the teeth of her enemies. It isn't out of some foolish ideal to prove herself, but simple confidence in oneself. She understands however that while she conducts herself as a knight of the King's Own, she must adhere to and acknowledge the professionalism demanded of representing the Sovereign's loyal protectors. As a result she can often be found to be as professional as she can be given her limited instruction as a Lower Borough-born commoner elevated to knighthood and granted the extreme honor of serving within the King's Own. When she's off-duty however she knows how to cut loose, enjoy a strong drink, and never turns down a friendly brawl. When she chooses a path, she walks it with strength and confidence in herself.

Background: With ancestors who were Prodigal and growing up in the Lower Boroughs, life was far from easy for Felicia. Despite the hardships that the family faced, she and her ancestors did willingly serve the Crown in the form of the Iron Guard. Her great-grandfather, grandfather, grandmother, all the way down to Felicia and one of her other siblings. Service has been something which the family has conducted with stringent adherence to the simple concept: to integrate and find acceptance, one must be willing to serve. And serve the family has, for a number of generations in concurrence.

It was only recent history when a fire broke out in the Ward of the Crown one evening while Felicia and a small number of the Iron Guard were on patrol. A home within the palace's ward was on fire and the majority of the Iron Guard in her presence froze. Notably at least one of them ran off to raise the alarm, but the rest stood marvelling at the flames. Felicia didn't have time for that, she wanted to get home and attend to her little garden, and have a stiff drink. She put boot to door and disappeared inside. Over the course of nearly ten minutes and multiple trips, Felicia was able to recover at least a half dozen nobles from indoors ranging from small children to adults. Covered in soot and reeking of smoke, Felicia had put herself at enormous personal risk on a whim.

As happens when people of merit put themselves at risk for little noticeable gain, it gained the notice of some. In this case it was someone intimately familiar with the Ward of the Crown and that at least held a tacit relationship with the Iron Guard through mutual service. The First Captain at the time of the King's Own, Rymarr, reached out to Felicia. An offer was made, an offer was questioned. She was no knight and the King's Own were a collection of talented knights of varying degrees of skill but most assuredly known for their many acts of bravery and valor throughout the centuries. Rudimentary training was provided by a number of noteworthy names within the King's Own, prior to Felicia taking her oath. Bringing her to speed for the Silver Swords, instilling in her the importance of their duty, their professionalism, and ultimately the demand for their unified front again threats to the Crown.

The price was high, without a doubt, but Felicia became Dame Felicia Harrow. Cast aside some of her obligations and ties beyond the King's Own, but in doing so earned the ability to call herself a knight of the King's Own. Which has also had the fortunate side effect of rarely wanting for at least basic needs. The palace baths? Too die for. Palace food? Amazing. The past few months has been completely worth the need to lay her life on the line in protection of the Sovereign.

  • Name Summary
    Adalyn Impressive combatant! I have much to learn.
    Aethan Managed to fell my brother with one stroke. Impressive.
    Agatha (OOC, I kept typing +fistimpression/all Felicia. I think this says a great deal about our spectactular future together) We are going to be GREAT FRIENDS after we met drinking at the dead bird bar! We will be tall and SO RED together, and we should save to get her rubicund armor. We could be legends some day. Let us be legends. HAH!
    Ainsley Her hair! She and her brother have such glorious hair.
    Alaric A knight from one of the Boroughs' longest-established families, she is as valiant as they come. Always runs a smooth shift as guard captain, and is excellent company besides. Decent wrestler, too.
    Alarissa Dame Felicia of the Kings Own, jouster for Alarissa's honour. Well, her armor's honour. Alarissa likes that little streak of pride that hovers just below the surface. Oh yes.
    Alban An interesting meeting. A piece of bait placed that drew in someone unintended. Still, there is honor in her, and I very much wish to help her bring light to the shadows of her past.
    Alessandro Anyone who carries a flask to a ball in their corset has my full approval, provided they are not averse to sharing.
    Amarantha A remarkably patient person. I'm so sorry she had to see me drunk out of my mind during our first meeting. I'll never forget her goat pun.
    Arianna Dame Felicia is a friend of Violet's and that makes me like her already. I've heard good things about her but that's not surprising seeing as she's of the One Hundred. King's Own are no joke, I've seen that much for myself.
    Arik An honorable woman with talents at battle. I see why she is King's Own. She has anger issues, but I understand this.
    Armani Cheerful! Seems like good company thus far. She drinks whiskey too.
    Astraea She's really fun, I can tell from the way she's quick to laugh and smile. Tough one from the looks of it, but I look forward to it!
    Barric An unfortunate time to meet, and a slip on my part for even bothering to react to what another said. I hope sometime to repair the damage and test her skill with the blade myself.
    Cadenza Sweet....but hits like a mule's kick. I love it. Can't wait to spar her again.
    Caith She is AMAZING. She is the King's personal knight and she's TALL and COMMANDING and can KICK *ahem* BUTT and .. *siiiiiighs* she's just so neat.
    Caspian A woman I've seen around and finally got to meet! She seems nice, a warrior type, never can be short of those.
    Clara Next ta her brother she seems entirely sane. I like her. Would like ta meet her again.
    Cleo She is a strong woman, very friendly, but also very private. She has many things in her mind, she should share maybe and grow stronger in the sharing by not trying to carry the weight of the world on her shoulders.
    Coraline Ohh another lady knight! I like her! Maybe she can teach me stuff....
    Cullen One of the King's Own. A strong knight who clearly knows what duty and honor are about, and I appreciate her words about Eirlys, few would understand as well, I suspect. Someone that is the kind of person others should look up to. Ought to not allow the king to make puns, though.
    Delilah There are so, so many ways I could begin talking about Dame Felicia. Harrowhall has been a big part of my life and she knows a lot. A whole lot. But she's just as much a mystery, and having finally met her, I'm left even more lost and confused.
    Dominique A relaxing King's Own! Oh goodness! She seems a bit melancholy, I hope that the spirits can lift her spirit. (See what I did there?)
    Duarte Well practiced knight and dedicated to her cause.
    Echo A splendid warrior who likely keeps a few tricks up her sleeves. Confident, headstrong, and determined. I am very fortunate to have her on my side.
    Ectorion Seems to avoid getting in close to social situations and crowds, not that I can much blame her. More comfortable watching the group than being part of it.
    Elara I had met the Dame under unfortunately tense circumstances the first time. Upon meeting her again in more relaxed I find her enjoyable. And I did then, for she handled herself well. I would like to make a friend of her.
    Eleanor She's one of those people who seems very much like themselves. I bet we could have fun together!
    Emily A woman of rich history and warm disposition makes for a great conversationalist. I have to admit I find her company far more measured and comfortable than many of the nobles I have come to know. I would be remiss in saying that I look forward to finding ways to speak with her again.
    Ezekiel She did quite seem to enjoy my music! And she is such an intimidating looking woman. I hope she will tell me some of her stories.
    Faye A direct and forthright woman, dedicated to her own work, seeming to be much after my own heart. I certainly have a few questions I'd like to ask her.
    Gareth Amiable but carries herself like a stern warrior suitable to her position. Her very air says she belongs right where she is.
    Giulio Perhaps a mite brash, but, certainly with a good head on their shoulders. It will be very interesting working with her in the future. I simply hope that steel is a last resort for her.
    Ignacio Dame Harrow held her own with Princess Agatha. Everytime I watch her pick up a sword, it is an impressive showing.
    Itzal Yet ANOTHER King's Own met, really at this point I might just as well just meet the whole hundred. She was excellent company, and possibly an old acquaintance! Hopefully to meet again, in similarly off-duty circumstances. Or I could go sing to the king.
    Jacque Dame Felicia Harrow. Friendly, agreeable sort. I've seen her in acouple of occasions and she has just as much of an aptitude for art as I do. Which is to say, I think she's a little better than me at it. And she's friends with the Archlector of Jayus.
    Jeffeth A Dame of considerable skill and kind temperment. She is a good woman, I consider it an honor every time I get to speak with her.
    Jordan She hits really hard and has a daredevil's affectations to her style. I enjoyed fighting Dame Harrow and hope to see more of this King's Own Knight.
    Kaede One of the King's Own, which must mean a lot here. Seems like a good fighting. Good conversation.
    Karadoc Dame Felicia Harrow. She's a knight -- obviously -- and a member of the King's Own. She's also a glazier, from what Lucita's told me, and she has been working with the Saikland Greens glassworks. I think. Although, I could be wrong. (I'm wrong a lot, eh.) It matters that one of the Baroness-Regent's allies ought to be mine, all the same.
    Kenna A great sense of humor and absolutely easy to talk to. Fake bears < Real Bear Hunt though!
    Laric Her reputation precedes her, certainly, but so do her deeds.
    Lorenzo A beautiful, kind, exciting woman whose strength impresses me more each day. What does the future have in store for us? I don't know, but I'm curious to find out.
    Lou She rode as Alarissa's champion in the duel over the prettiest armor between she and Prince Rook. I must say this Dame has skills, and I would never want to be on the wrong end of one of her jousts!
    Lucita Dame Felicia of the Kings Own and someone who makes things from glass. Amicable, pleasant natured, lively conversation and coping with a brother in mischief, something I have to do too! I look forward to seeing more of her.
    Luis A King's Own and with the skills to be proud of that position. Steady, strong, and tough as nails, it wasn't until Luis had already committed that he quickly realized his grevious error. Witty and fun. Someone great to have at your back during a battle, and equally so at the tavern afterward.
    Lumen It seems odd that a King's Own should be allowed to act as head of household, even for a Commoner clan. That said, she certainly has my respect and esteem.
    Marcas An interesting one. An Iron Guard that drinks, talks, and fights like a Northerner. Even has the red hair to go with it. Spoke of some very interesting tales, she's clearly a repository of knowledge, I ought to get her to tell more stories next I see her.
    Margerie She was one of my fellow competitors at the Marching competition at the Rally. What an impressive spirit! She seems valiant and kind.
    Marian She's an excellent fighter. She took almost took Agatha down in a quick and efficient manner. I should keep an eye on this one. She might even surpass me some day.
    Marius Dame Felicia seems nice. I hope continued exposure to my sister will not corrupt her.
    Merek A glassworker I have met a couple of times. She is nice, and also her work is wonderful. I am hopeful that we can become friends perhaps.
    Mirari A pleasant woman who has relatable views on stabbing people. Sometimes the best way to get a point across is with a sharp blade.
    Monique She's beautiful and strong and I find it very difficult to keep my eyes off of her.
    Norwood Dame Felicia is a force to be reckoned with in all areas. I would be more than happy to stand by her side in battle.
    Reese A knights of the King's Own, great at darts and handles herself with grace.
    Reigna A stalwart and true knight of the Kings Own, who acted with honor and duty. No higher praise can I give her.
    Rinel I don't know if she's actually made of stone or just hits like it. Ow.
    Romulius Rum is superior to Whiskey, but, she has many lovely scars and a kind demeanor for one of the King's Own. I think we could be fast friends, given time.
    Rook One of the Hundred and a skilled jouster! She is a marvellous choice for a Champion and chosen by the Princess Consort Alarissa Thrax herself.
    Saoirse This is NOT a lady, Skye. Knight Skye. She was careful to correct the title, so Saoirse will be careful to afford her the proper honorific.
    Scipio Big sister. What else is there to say, really?
    Simone A pleasantly surprising woman and much more fun than expected! I anticipate that we will get along very well.
    Sorrel This woman is an amazing fighter, and one of the King's Own. It's really nice to spar with her, either alongside her or against her. She takes her job seriously, but that's a good thing in my book. Definitely someone I hope to see more of in the future.
    Theron Dame Felicia Harrow. King's Own, and so that likely means she's a good fighter. I look forward to sparring her, sometime.
    Thesarin Reckon she has her head set straight, and her heart in the right spot, what I've seen. Hope she lives the week.
    Triton A mean right hook and a great spirit. A woman I think that would have a lot of good stories and be nice to sit down and have a drink with.
    Valarian Same old big sister I've always remembered. Strong, supportive, smart. And still adhering to the rules far too closely, alas. She needs to do more things for herself, it would do her some good. Serving the Crown? Thankless. Bunch of ingrates, they don't deserve her.
    Valdemar She sounds like a very knowledgeable warrior. I'd be curious to see her in action.
    Venturo A whiskey drinker. Whiskey! Well, as long as she continues to spend time with Lorenzo and visit the brewery, there is hope that she'll fully see the light of ale. Maybe. Hey, it could happen!
    Vercyn So this is the "Little Red" to Princess Agatha's "Big Red". Interesting contrast! Blushes more than what I would come to expect though, based on what Agatha said of her.
    Veronica I had a much longer conversation with Dame Felicia this time, and I learned quite a bit more about her... moreso than I expected. I am impressed with her forthrightness, her willingness to put herself at risk for the greater good. In more ways than one, she reminds me of myself!
    Victus King's Own and saw me at the best of my drunken states. Though really I'd believe anything that happened that night if someone told me it convincingly enough. Maybe she knows how to ford a river across a fucking wood floor.
    Viktor King's Own. She is far more learned than I on the history of Arx. From stories she is a great warrior too. Perhaps some day I will be able to make her a sword or armor so she can continue to do good work.
    Violet A pleasant woman of the King's Own. Friendly and charming, I actually hope to spend more time and get to know her more. We may be at different ends of the battle field, but I feel we are a lot alike.
