Description: Alexis has, for most of her existence, been called 'cute'. Close-cropped blonde hair couple with bright eyes in pale grey, and fair skin offset pink lips that easily edge upwards into shy smiles. All of which makes the charge hard to refute.

Her body is impressively muscled and she moves with an easy grace and an abundance of energy. Barely hitting 5' 2'', she's compact with feminine curvature to her frame.

Personality: Alexis is generally hopeful by nature, with easy smiles and wide-eyed and bright appreciation for the world. She's idealistic to the point of naivete, aspiring to be the very best she can be, and to make her family and house proud in the process. She possesses a deep-set sense of honour and stakes her behaviour on the chivalric code of the Oathlands.

Background: Legend has it that a century or three ago, Wyrmfang split off the main March of Wyrmguard as a cadet branch, slowly diminishing in importance from second sons and third daughters, until they were far enough removed to in essence become a highly respected family of knights. For the last few generations, ever since one Cristoph Wyrmfang turned an-almost defeat into an astounding victory, the Wyrmfangs have also had the honour of holding the Sword of Blancbier for the Wyrmguards.

Alexis and her twin brother was born to the then-Sword of Blancbier, Alphonse Wyrmfang, and the children were raised on the family traditions of loyalty and steadfast service, served up with constant tales of Oathlands chivalry and ambitions, of meritorious rises and rewards for serving the ideals that the gods of the pantheon represent. And Alexis swallowed it all rather wide-eyed.

When she was nearly old enough, she became rather insistant on squiring, including at one point running away from home to find herself adventure (and a knight to squire to), and eventually her father acquiesced. Small, but fierce, she favoured larger weapons such as two-handed swords and glaives in combat, which may in part have been inspired by her father's position. She was overjoyed when, for about a year, she spent time in the same group of squires as one Princess Alis Valardin, and the even smaller woman left a deep impression with her tenacity.

One duty that Alexis picked up as a squire was the mending of armour, and to this day she uses the beating of steel as a form of meditation, slowly learning the craft of the smith.

Her knighting ceremony took place at her 18th birthday, while she was part of the force protecting Blancbier and anxiously awaiting news from Arx about the siege and the Army of Silence. In the last battle of the siege, her father took a grave wound protecting the Marquessa. The wound festered, and Sir Alphonse was sent home to Blancbier, but expired on the way. When the Marquessa Dominiqe next visited Blancbier, there was a small ceremony in which Alexis found herself becoming the keeper of the Wyrmguard heirloom blade, as her father, and her father's mother had before her. She swore the oath to protect her family gladly, and now, after having grieved and seen her father to his final rest, she comes to Arx. An untested blade, but eager to prove herself.

  • Name Summary
    Alarissa Fealthy to Valardin brings with it interesting people and Alexis is one. A sense of taste both tongue and eye means that surely we shall cross paths again and even for being one who bears swords, she has a kindness about her that is far less sharp than her blade.
    Aleksei Bright, friendly, and respectable. I recall her being totally eager to meet the Paladin of Freedom and thank him for his service. I dunno why, though; that guy's a doofus.
    Alessandro Instructing my brother-in-law to be in the martial arts, and by all appearances, she shall be excellent at it.
    Arianna Very adorable little Dame whom has a certain charm. A Sword no less. I do hope we can become fast friends for she seems a deadly little maiden.
    Arn Alphonse's daughter. Just a damn kid with an old sword like the rest of them. She should spend more time forging herself into something rather than forging metal into armor. Knights should be knights. Children never understand.
    Arn Sword of Blancbier. Just a kid. Shouldn't be in the forge but who listens to me anymore? Maybe she'll work out, maybe not. Never can tell. Seems foolish to have hope for these kids anymore, but we'll see.
    Aureth What an Oathlandsy Oathlander. Short, super young, super cute, hypercourteous. Is Paladin becoming a title now, like, do I have to actually call him that to people? Yikes.
    Barik An endearing sight. Nevermind the two giant-killers that dangle from her back, her shown mettle alone is enough to make a man consider.
    Barric A fellow Sword, well she will likely be a Sword long after I am not. She seems attentive and kind, polite, and apparently of an Order I don't know much about! I will have to corner her for more conversation some time.
    Calarian A Dame with loyalty to the Crown and passion for her trade.
    Calaudrin I like her, seems like a dependable girl. Wonder if we could steal her for the Iron Guard somehow.
    Christine A sweet girl, with a big sense of honor and a lot of love to give.
    Cirroch The redsteel armor she made for me is the finest armor I have worn. Her work is peerless!
    Clara She stood face-to-face with an Abyssal Tainted Dire Bear. That thing was huge. She has my respect.
    Cleo She is cute and strong, she feels strongly about the Gods, wish can hope she can accept the spirits sometime. She is confused by me I think, the spirits don't make sense to her. At least she does not say they do not exist. This is good!
    Clover Stalwart and just a little bit reserved. Alexis does well in serving Wyrmguard as the Sword of Blancbier.
    Coraline A knight and a skilled artisan, I very much look forward to seeing her work! She seems to be a woman of very good heart and good freinds as both Barric and Reese are just two. I look forward to getting to knowing her better.
    Corban Too much armsman and not enough sergeant in her. She has a presence but seems to keep it subdued. I had hoped for more from the Sword of Blancbrier - I refuse to use my cousin's nickname for her. All soldier deserve that much respect.
    Cristoph Dame Alexis! A fine example of an Oathlands knight. I've encountered her several times over and never once been left with a negative impression. She's a good one to have on our side.
    Cullen Humble, courageous, determined, talented, intelligent - and someone who radiates the virtues of a knight. She is a worthy Paragon and someone for me to look up to and find inspiration in. I am proud to be a comrade in arms with her.
    Dagon A proper meeting with Dame Alexis, compared to their first brief one. Dagon gets on pretty readily with most Valardin,as he shares a lot more with them than his own house in a lot of ways - something she seemingly picked up on, at least in terms of how he differs from the average Thrax. Seems a good basis for future friendship, or at least knightly cammaraderie of a sort.
    Delilah Dame Alexis Wyrmfang. I don't think I'll ever have a better first impression of anyone in the compact. Alexis deserves every title she has and more. Her company is splendid, tastes are refined, and her smile to die for. I am blessed to know her.
    Denica When I first heard about Dame Alexis, I had expected somebody taller, larger than life. She somehow managed to be both shorter and bigger than I expected. An Oathlands woman of honor and strength. I can see why Lady Neve likes her.
    Derovai Decent observations, but she makes poor choices with what she does with them.
    Duarte A knight of the Gold Order - well revered by Echo and very friendly with Valencia. I trust we'll get along.
    Echo Small and adorable, knows how to use weaponry of the somewhat larger variety, dutiful and polite... Did I mention that she's a talented smith? Well, she's all these things and more.
    Ectorion Skilled, good eyes, a good rider. Great person to have on point, no nonsense, and professional. An asset to her house.
    Edain She trained with my sister, and has sometimes been her partner in crime. Together they are a brace of tactical sized terrors and /woe/ to anyone who might get in their way. I was very sad to hear of her father's passing. I know how hard that is. I especially know how hard it is to be thrust into carrying on your father's legacy without warning. She's been a friend to my sister, the least I can do is try and help her live up to that burden. I have faith she can do it. Princess Alis' confidence tends to rub off on the people close to her.
    Edwyn A dame with ample skill for the hammer, and a respect, unlike my kin, for wearing clothing that is not piping hot leather, padding or plate hot enough to cook in. She seems respectable.
    Eilonwy A fierce warrior woman. I am so glad to have met her.
    Eirlys Saw her at the Medal Ceremony. Would like to get to know her better.
    Eleyna Somehow, she managed to get poisoned at a wedding. Can't -imagine- how that happened. Regardless, she pulled through and seems to be thriving now.
    Esoka I met Dame Wyrmfang in passing at the celebration of new beginnings on the outskirts of the Gray Forest. I would like to know her better, when her arms are all in good sparring repair. There is much I admire in the Valardin commitment to oaths and honor, and I am eager to learn how the other Swords of their Houses carry that honor upon their shoulders.
    Fatima The Dame was very kind, generous and has a mind for armor design that I like very much! I can't wait to see more of her tight, toned body...oh and to ummm talk to her again. Yea.
    Ferrando I feel like an old slacker looking at her, and I'm not even old! Or really even a slacker! I mean, I do kind of stand around all day on the job but that's purposeful standing around.
    Fiachra Calm and collected in the middle of danger, and assisted in keeping the situation worse than it could have been. Certainly looking forward to getting to know her further - when demons aren't involved, of course.
    Fortunato Friend of Hana's. A metalsmith of skill who hungers, I think, for variety. As long as it's a metallic variety. Good listener, good host. Always good to be driven by curiosity as much as business.
    Gaston A tiny thing, though it seems she has my cousin Tesha's respect, as well as that of Beaumont which is enough for me. Certainly friendly enough and decent company. Hopefully her blade will be able to remain untested for a while longer, but that is rarely the way of things.
    Gwenna Dame Alexis Wyrmfang is a famed knight, the Sword of Blancbier, Paragon of the Gold Order, and manages to also be a renowned smith. Those things alone would lead anyone to think her incredible. Not only is she a woman of noble deed, but also of noble heart. Warm, kind, and friendly to those she seems to like, it is no wonder she is so beloved. I am grateful that she has taken a chance on me as a support staff for the Gold Order, especially as I am no knight, and look forward to what I hope to be a lifelong friendship.
    Hana This Oathlander knight is also an armorsmith; she seems friendly, though I wonder why it is that all the knights in the Crafter's Guild are Oathland smiths? Maybe there's something in the bacon.
    Ian I hope she knows what she's doing.
    Ida Dame Alexis Wyrmfang, Sword of Blancbier, protege of Princess Alis Valardin /and/ a smith of fine repute. As though that were not enough to immediately draw my respect and admiration, the woman is also friendly and kind. I definitelly need to bring a bottle of whisky to her shop and get to know her better!
    Jacque A vassal of House Valardin and a master smith. Jacque is impressed by how quickly she turned the order out for a set of steel armor for him. They had a conversation in which he asked something unusual of her - namely, to watch her work, once he is finished with his current focus.
    Jael Young, but clearly talented. She's probably got me beat on the Gauntlet, and if not, I imagine she will
    Jeffeth A dame. A smith. And a very good athlete. There's not much more you could put on a person to make me instantly like them.
    Joscelin A new armorer for the Guild and a hardworker.
    Killian Alexis was very flattering and kind in her words, and very solemn. She seems a serious sort of woman, and is the Sword of Blancbriar, so she seems the sort of person Killian will likely get along with. And probably annoy. He's -very- disappointing as a role model after all, and doesn't take things near seriously enough, but her kind words really touched him.
    Lailah Dame Alexis Wyrmfang, Sword of Blancbier. I nearly ran into her by way of introduction, but this small woman is the sword of a fine house, and a knight at that! Impressive! I'd like to see how she handles herself.
    Laric Typical Oathlander: steel and bacon. Not necessarily a bad thing.
    Leola Suddenly the faint twitch every noble has made when I've called them by their full title makes a little more sense. If I've inspired her - well, that's wonderful, but I'm sure she does Valardin proud. The standards for Knights there is high! ... unlike her. She's short.
    Lou I met Alexis while on a rare shopping errand to replace my backpack - damn wolves. She seemed quite flustered when I arrived, and perhaps a bit harried. She mentioned she was going to be at, or was it in, the Iron Pentathlon swimming competition later on. She requested to hear the story about the wolves - and I wouldn't mind obliging her with it.
    Lys Dame Alexis, she seemed pleasant but somewhat distracted and perhaps in a bad mood.
    Maeve She seems so cool! She has these giant glaives that are bigger than she is! How does she even lift those things?! She has got some serious muscles. We got to fight rats together! I wouldn't mind sharing a drink or two with her when rats aren't chewing on our faces.
    Malesh A tiny young thing which bested me in the battle of the sexes. Thank the gods it was but a game, I have now doubt she would have beaten me just as handily in a real fight.
    Malik A very impressive knight! I hope she will come to visit the Whisper House soon so that I can be learning more about her.
    Marian Was I ever that young? Did I ever have that much hope? Alexis is a bright, untested beacon. I hope she keeps that light when darkness comes to our doorstep. We shall see what happens when she's tested.
    Marius Seems like a nice enough Dame. I enjoyed watching her beat the ever-loving crap out of Monique.
    Melody Even in situations where I wouldn't recommend it, she remains calm and knightly. Composed, and sweet. I don't think I could ever be anything similar, but it is a very admirable trait.
    Merek %bMerek met Alexis at the Storied Blade. Seems she is an armorsmith like him, and he doesn't know many of them! It is nice to meet people that share interests.
    Monique Did anyone get the number on that horse and cart? It must have been going fast, I didn't see it AT all!
    Norwood She has a good head on her shoulders, and had some //invaluable// information about her sword, and in reflection, my Queensguard. I would stand by her side any day.
    Olivia Killian has a fan! Just a first meeting at a large event, but she seemed very friendly. If she'll be hanging around him more, it should be nice to have someone from outside the immediate clan to play with!
    Orathy Radiant in white, a storybook knight... short though... but she were smilin in a way that I used to be smiling at the one she has her arms wrapped bout. I instantly saw what me life could never be...
    Orazio The Dame Alexis is not someone Orazio has met before, but he has found her to be a stalwart and unfailingly courageous companion in battle. Both skilled, and of good heart, and flexible enough to handle meeting a Fluffybottom with dignity. He is impressed!
    Petal I like make clothing for her and it seems that she has been referring people to me. I don't know the Dame well, but she seems to have tastes, her dragons are fun to sew.
    Quenia Alexis is a dame and a noteworthy warrior. She is entering the Tournament of Roses in the melee competition and has the favor of a duchess.
    Reese She seems nice. Reese doesn't know her well, but would like to know her better.
    Ryhalt Both a warrior and a smith, both things that take a great deal of dedication to do and not grievously wound oneself, and her injuries seem mostly externally inflicted, so she must be good! A friend of Clover's it seems, and knows what a Westrock pollaxe is, so that's a bonus.
    Saedrus I have heard countless tales of heroic deeds done by the lovely Dame Alexis Wyrmfang. She is a woman whom impresses, in strength and conviction. I have seen her fight in torneys, watched her compete in great hunts and never once have I seen her act unduely or without courage and valour. A charming woman, though, I cannot imagine I quite inspire great deeds in my name, I am grateful for the compliment.
    Sameera Undecided still. She seems good since she wants to work in smithing. A knight.
    Sasha A Sword I am very curious to watch spar very soon.
    Shae Dame Alexis is very kind and thoughtful, and knows quite a lot about Arx and the people in the city. I look forward to helping her find a dog that suits her perfectly, as well as getting to know her more.
    Simone Alexis is a bright and pleasant person. I do believe there is a small part of me that wishes she could have been a part of our family, but I am happy that past hurts can be set aside so that new friendships can be forged.
    Sorrel The Sword of Blancbier! She's an excellent vassal and it's a privilege to know her. I really ought to get her to help me with my armor at some point, too!
    Tarrant A genteel and dignified dame, ready with the sword but not reckless in it's pursuit, she keeps a fine regard for life, even those of foes.
    Tesha Small of stature and big of heart... Maybe her father wanted different for her, but, there is no question in my mind that he would be proud.
    Thesarin A small one, but fierce. Fight in her.
    Thorley Small of stature, but apparently large of command. I wish the sword the best of luck with her leadership of her troops - I do not envy her position.
    Tyrval Exceedingly human, but in a good way.
    Valery She's nice and friendly. Also helpful!
    Vena A knight and a Sword it seems, it is always good seeing young women capable of holding their own in a fight.
    Venturo Dame Alexis, a woman who finds herself thrust into more responsibilities. Reserved at first, she's still willing to try new things -- such as fruit ales! -- and this will serve her well in everything she has to learn in her new role.
    Vercyn Dame Alexis of Wyrmfang appears a powerful warrior, and a courteous lady. I look forward to seeing continued demonstrations of her mettle and skill
    Victus A small girl in a big suit of armor. Came all the way to the ward to honor the dead, that's what I call dedication. Interested to see where she ends up.
    Zaina I didn't get to interact with her much, but she seems a solid sort.
