Description: Marian is a striking, if hard-looking woman that has seen much in her life. Lean and long of leg, 'sinewy' is a better descriptor of her build than 'lithe'. Marian is strong, and tough, and resilient enough to take anything thrown at her. Her hair borders on sinister, with long, thick locks shaded so deeply red as to look burgundy. A thin scar bisects one eyebrow, continuing down over a sharp, high cheekbone. It calls attention to those flashing eyes, venom green and almond-shaped. When she smiles, it's most often a crooked affair, curling up just at one corner of her wide mouth. Her chin is strong, her hands and arms (and the rest of her, besides) crisscrossed with the faint scars that often decorate a knife-fighter. On clothes that show her midriff, she has two tribal tattoos, dragon and bear to commemorate her two marriages. A tiny little bear cub sleeps at the foot of the roaring bear tattoo.

Personality: Marian Redrain, formerly Marian of the Green March and Valardin, is not a complainer. She endured much during her life as a prodigal from an Abandoned tribe, raids and battles with other tribes, Valardin knights, demonic hordes and once she even managed to tumble down a steep embankment while running drunk. She yanked out the branch that had stabbed into her thigh, dragged herself back up to the path (leaving a bloody trail behind for the joy of forest predators), and said fiercely to whomever or whatever might be listening, "I'm still here." A dozen times, she should have died. A dozen times, she refused. Despite her eventful life, and her personal sorrows, she maintains a surprisingly gentle manner. She doesn't pick fights, but she's more than willing to end them - though any youthful delight she felt in the display of her superior fighting skills has faded to weariness, and regret in the years after Valen's death. Her personal code of honor was perhaps a touch more wild and ferocious than what House Valardin at times was comfortable with, but her new House, Redrain, embraces this fierce warrior. Since the marriage to her new husband, Fergus, there is light back in her eyes and a smile on her face. Many remark she is the Marian of old, before the Tragedy of Sanctum struck.

Background: Marian was a member of the Green March Abandoned, a chieftan's daughter with several raids and duels under her belt (literally! She liked to hang trophies from her belt) when peace was brokered between their tribe and the Valardin of Sanctum. Of course, that's not the whole story. In truth, Valen, son of Radley and Prince of Valardin, was part of a hunting expedition that was captured by the Green March. Marian's father was determined to murder off the party and ransom the young prince back to his family. Fate had other plans. Marian found she admired the young man's bravery in the face of his captivity. He argued passionately for the lives of his men, and stated he could make sure the Green March, so close to Sanctum lands, could coexist in peace if he were released and allowed to make the case to the High Lord. Marian's father scoffed at this, but in secret, with his advisers and his daughter, he couldn't help but consider it. Other tribes of Abandoned had been growing withdrawn and strangely quarrelsome, and an offer of peace and inclusion couldn't be dismissed outright.

Some of the knights with Prince Valen were less than thrilled with his proposed truce, and when the Chieftan brought them before him, a particularly gruff man insisted on fighting the tribe's champion for the freedom of his comrades. Amused, the chief looked towards his daughter. . .who nodded her agreement and drew her two swords, the Twin Fangs. The battle looked close, at first. The Valardin knight was much taller and stronger than Marian, and had been given his shield, but she fought like a dervish, dancing around him and flicking her short swords out to sting at any exposed flesh. It was clear that he was tiring faster than she, and the outcome seemed all but decided in Marian's favor, when the man she was fighting broke away and lunged for her father. In the resulting scuffle, Marian took a wound in the side, and was shocked to look up and find Prince Valen standing over her, protecting her from further harm as the tribe subdued the wayward Knight. When all was said and done, the knight was dead from a half dozen wounds, Marian was bleeding, and Valen had no objections to the fate of the attacker. He helped Marian to her feet, tenderly, and soothed her embarrassment by voicing aloud his own shock at the dishonorable conduct of his knight. His apology was so genuine, the Chieftan didn't even object when Marian came to him later and begged for the chance to see if the Prince really /could/ negotiate peace for their tribe. He knew, even if she didn't, that her heart had already been lost to the fair young heir.

So it was that the Green March tribe became the Greenmarch family, vassals to House Valardin. For her part, Marian married Prince Valen in that forest, and though Radley was adamantly opposed at first, his son eventually won him over, too. They were happy together for several years before the fateful massacre at Sanctum. Having lost her husband, the former Sword of Valardin, she was given the title herself. She came to Arx because her still-keen instincts told her a storm was coming, so she must be near to her High Lord. She did not fail her family, when the hordes of Brand came to Arx and tried to take the city. She protected Prince Edain's back and saw to his safety the entire time she held the mantle of Sword of Sanctum.

Duty can be a cold bed fellow. Without even knowing it, she was hollow as she moved about House Valardin, serving her High Lord. A duel with the arrogant Sword of the North woke her up when their fight sparked more than victory when she defeated him in battle. She might have won the fight but lost the battle of her heart when she got to know the reluctant champion, Prince Fergus Redrain. Like a spark that quickly fanned into fire, their attraction drew these two forces of nature together. Prince Edain and Prince Darren saw no reason to hold these two apart. So after some swift negotiations, their marriage contract was set. After a dazzling battle with Sir Roland that almost killed her, she handed over the mantle of Sword of Sanctum so she could be free to marry her second love. Now she starts this new life in House Redrain, wife to Prince Fergus. Where the story goes next? Only the Gods and Spirits know.

  • Name Summary
    Aerandir A seasoned warrior, this stocky woman, if the tales she has regaled me with are true to the core. I have no reason to doubt her sincerity, but I find myself wanting to do so all the same. For one so deeply woven into the higher echelons of society, she appears humble, different in comparison to the many gentry I have met, though her words of marriage explain enough.
    Aeryn We met in the Plaza and... yes, I'm sure she's fearsome in battle but isn't she just so beautiful! I bet her babies are going to be just like her. I hope the gods continue to bless her and look out for her. She's truly one of the kindest people I've met in Arx so far!
    Agatha I haven't gotten to see her in training yet, but if she is as gifted at that as she is at running a meeting and using words I can understand (Spirits, you have surely spoken)? I think she'll live up to the legend.
    Agnarr Beat Fergus, must be good. Not bad looking, scars give her a charm. Probably going to win against her, though.
    Aiden Aiden's first impression of her was a good one, of someone he wanted to learn more about and spend time with. He wouldn't have found her a feathered friend if that wasn't the case!
    Alaric Proactive and confident, she seems to be going about producing the next generation of princes and princesses with the same relentless vigor as she exercised her duties as the Sword of Sanctum. I hope Prince Fergus can keep up, for his sake.
    Alarissa Sister in law, once upon a time. An impressive warrior and someone to be admired, if not at least look up to.
    Alban Any man or woman who discounts what this Princess says, or has experienced, is a fool. Wisdom is earned through pain and loss, she has seen her fair share of it and then some. Not a woman to take lightly at all.
    Aleksei An impressive shot! I think her real talent lies with the sword, though. I mean, she was a Sword, after all!
    Amarantha Both a warrior and interested in books? A women after my own heart.
    Apollis A northern Princess who knows my sisters. She's quick to tease, like she knows me. She can make that the truth, if she wants. She's beautiful. I like her scar.
    Arianna I doubt that very much Sword. You kicked my ass fair and square, you got moves Marian. I have full confidence that anything gets in your way is getting an all mighty smiting.
    Armand Ex-Sword perhaps, but she lost none of her skill for it. I'm in her debt, for she helped me be one step closer to what I once was.
    Arn The only halfway tolerable Greenmarch and that's only because she's a Redrain now.
    Asher Arguably as lucky as I am, but frankly... That battlecry deserves more than just two. Scare the Bringers right out of Arx, it could!
    Astraea I love Marian, she's one of my mentors and taught me the virtue of never backing down. She's tough as an iron cookie, but inside all that she is kind and caring. We of the North are so lucky to have her among our family.
    Austen Clearly a woman of great standing, with a most excellent bearing. Her many scars show of a life well lived. I admire her already.
    Barric Warchief of Redrain who is well known for her mastery of all aspects of War. Would like to spar her sometime after she recovers from her pregnancy. Otherwise she seems a no-nonsense sort, which I appreciate.
    Bastien Ah yes. Nobles at the Commoners Council. Goody.
    Bethany She bears the weight of memory well.
    Bliss Immediately, and without reservation, stepping in and offering her strength in a situation, damn the repercussions? Oh, I rather adore her already.
    Cadenza Wasn't sure at first how to take her but she was so helpful with her suggestions. Hopefully I'll get to talk to her in a less....tumultuous time.
    Caelis A bright, friendly sort it seems. She's likely the kind of woman who doesn't mind a bit of shyness, maybe I'll brave the social waters to meet her proper.
    Calaudrin Princess Marian is a true hero of the Compact. She works tirelessly at defending not just her own fealty, but the city of Arx. She's one of the few nobles that expressed a real care about what happens to us here. Good person.
    Calista A striking woman with features that remind me of dancing flames. She is beautiful and intelligent. Fergus is a very lucky man.
    Cambria The former Sword of Sanctum, and a warrior of renown. She looks fabulous in a dress, though. Perhaps one day I can share more than a polite greeting with her.
    Caspian A wounded princess? Now she has me curious as to what could have happened to her. Prehaps next time I see her I shall learn more of this egmatic princess
    Christine She is nice and polite. She looks like a fighter, but she's trying to look for books. Not bad.
    Clara Marian is Fergus' wife and Fergus is like a big brother to me so that sort of makes her like a big sister to me? I think? I guess only time will tell but at this point she seems like a pretty nice woman. She offered to help train me so I guess if I get on her nerves she will just smack me upside the head and call it a day. If she does... I probably deserved it.
    Coraline So nice! I can't imagine carrying twins. I hope I get to know her better.
    Costas Three Swords walk into a bar- no one dies? That joke needs work but the woman got a good sense of humor at least.
    Cristoph Marian too believes that our ramparts offer the best view in all of Arx. Really, what more is there to say? She's also quite dedicated to her duties to House Valardin. A very admirable woman.
    Cullen As fierce as I remember, as commanding of a presence with just a word and stance, expression and gesture. Gracious and humorous, even when serious. Our family has produced amazing people, this is one of them.
    Daemon Warchief of the North and responsible for many lives. Lives she guarded well when the enemy desired to break down the walls of Stormwall.
    Darren Although I hate to burden my cousin so soon after her difficult birth, we have no time to waste. I know she will rise to her duty. I know I can rely on her strength, always. She is Redrain. To the last!
    Declan It doesn't seem entirely fair that someone can hit that hard, while moving that quickly. There's an awful lot to like about Princess Marian Redrain, but one should never, ever treat her lightly.
    Dominic There was something about a hard Valardin that always catches Dominic's eye. The prince, because of the type of ships he commanded, was force to campaign along the coasts, a coast that sometimes took him to Sanctum. Even if he does not agree with their bullshit, he can not help but accept that there is a certain kind of regal Valardin princess carried and Princess Marian exhibited as such when entering the training ground.
    Dominique Even though she's pregnant, I'm quite confident that she can beat up anyone who would dare threaten her or her own.
    Echo What a stunning woman! Very helpful and kind, with a presence that radiates power. A strong spirit, one whom I will definitely learn much from.
    Ectorion A good eye and a good head to give advice. It's always pleasant to meet those who would share expertise with others so willingly.
    Edain Princess Marian may very well be what demons and monsters tell their children is lurking beneath their beds. I saw her rage the night of the Tragedy of Sanctum, and she showed fanatics and monsters both, what it meant to feel fear again. There were no shortage of people that I call heroes that night, but make no mistake, Marian was the one that has turned the tide. It has ever been my honor that she has stayed with us since then, serving as the Sword of Sanctum, taking up t he mantle in place of Valen. I am humbled by her loyalty, and I love her as much as I do my own blood.
    Eirlys A cousin I haven't gotten to know well yet, great warrior and a strong woman.
    Eithne An excellent teacher and a proven warrior on the field. I think it was only a matter of time before our paths crossed but I gotta say, I'm super lucky she took up the offer to be my instructor. In exchange, I gotta make sure her armor is amazing! Plus, she's an inspiration to women everywhere! Have you seen how incredible she looks for just having had a baby?!
    Eleyna While on the surface Marian and I don't appear to have much in common, with her being a martial type and me being a 'drink wine and gossip' type, but it's amazing how a friendship can form over a similar sense of humor and shared exasperation with our respective husbands.
    Emilia When I saw her come to pray at the Shrine of Gloria, despite her injuries, my heart overflowed with happiness and adoration. The Princess left a strong impression on me, and her actions validate all my beliefs, hopes and deeds.
    Emily She's a strong yet crazy Redrain who tried to kill Emily - nothing the Deepwood does not admire there and nothing brings two people closure than nearly freezing together in a pool of muddy water. Definitely friends in Em's book.
    Esoka VERY good woman to have at your back in a fight. She was the last on the field in our little match against the Iron Guardsman, and nearly pulled it out.
    Estil She seems a delightful woman, charming and well settled with her friendships. Although we did not get enough time to truly meet one another, I can say from subtle cues that she seems a pleasing sort I would not mind one day meeting again.
    Gisele A devout and dignified second, who gave proper honours to the vital rites of the Faith.
    Grazia This woman seems to be extremely competent and militarily connected. She ought to be an excellent person to know and a good point of contact with the Redrains.
    Gwenna Princess Marian Redrain, formerly Princess Marian Valardin, is a woman I heard many a fireside story about considering my Laurent/Redrain heritage. The tales of her prowess as a knight and, more recently, of what lead to her marriage to Prince Fergus - well. What young woman doesn't get a bit wide-eyed at such things? That someone of her repute is also so warm, kind and welcoming? It only makes her seem all the larger in this life and I look forward to hopefully getting to know her better!
    Hadrian She has some choice opinions on wool and the application of it.
    Holden Once Valardin, she has been away for some time. It would be good to see her again.
    Ian She didn't give into the urge to pull her blows with me, and that says a lot about her.
    Ignacio The Princess Redrain appears to be a very strong woman and can maintain that imagine in a very refined way. She seems like an interesting person that I think would be intriguing to talk to her more sometime.
    Iseulet Normally, silks make my skin crawl. Make me wanna run right out of the damn room but she's tolerable and that's the first time I've ever been able to say that about anyone bearing the title of Princess. I wouldn't even mind having a drink with her. Down to earth, as they say - definitely didn't look down her nose at me.
    Isolde Rarely are we blessed with men and woman who are both renown warriors and renown beauties. It was a pleasure to meet her at the charity--as opposed to at the end of her sword.
    Itzal A Princess known to Mae. Yet this one seems to have followed a peculiar path. Valardin, and then Redrain. I've heard some of her misfortune, yet it does not seem to have broken her. Someone to learn more about, in the coming days. Who knows, I may spin her a song too!
    Jeffeth Taking care of a woman who seemed to have an issue walking. It's good to care for those who need help. She has my respect, I'm just sorry we came together in the area of Sameera's wrath.
    Jenessa Princess Marian is an exceptional instructor in the art of war. She's got a sharp mind, and her thought provoking lessons have left me impressed with her knowledge. I look forward to learning from her again.
    Jordan She's a good instructor and very fond of her children and life in general. A good warrior knows how to appreciate life because they learn how precious it is to shed it for those that they cherish the most. And she taught me a few tricks without needing to demonstrate them. I hope to learn more from Princess Marian.
    Josephine That glare. Makes one wither. Her chlidren must be the best behaved.
    Kaede Military commander. Knows things, speaks sense. Also knows about being a Prodigal. All good signs.
    Katarina I've always been told the ties of true sisterhood are lifelong bonds, so imepenetrable that not even the Abyss itself could rend them apart. With Marian, I can believe in that whole-heartedly. There is nothing I would not do for her.
    Kenna I'm afraid I met her at the worst possible time as she is feeling ill from her pregnancy. Oh, but what exciting news! All the happiness to her!!!
    Laric A woman with the look of an Oathlands knight spotted praying at the Sentinel. I'd assume she's faced with difficult choices, but you never know with them.
    Lianne Good manners, dry humor, restraint and reverence. How easily she inspired a smile. How brightly that poor man blushed.
    Lou I stumbled into her in the Grayson study, talking to Reese. They were talking about the poison in the forest and she was interested in more information.
    Lydia The wife of Fergus, and matching him in skill both in battle and personality. While it may be against the laws of nature for Fergus to adhere to the norms of polite society, Marian seems to have no trouble turning the social graces on and off, as company warrants.
    Maeve I think she will be pretty cool to be around once she relaxes a bit more. It was kind of fun telling her that being casual is more of an up than being formal.
    Malesh Rather polite and helpful, despite the prickly exterior. What charity the resolution of conflict brings forth in us all!
    Marcas Meeting Princess Marian in person is more inspiring than I could have imagined...I have no doubts that with her brilliance, leadership, and martial prowess, we stand an excellent chance. To fight alongside her one day would be a truly great honor, and she reassures me that the defense of the North is in capable hands.
    Margerie I don't think I've had the opportunity to speak with the Princess, or at least not at any length, but I think I just saw someone audition for godhood and it was very impressive.
    Marius Even in her current state, my sister is every bit the firebrand. It was good catching up with her, but I worry that her responsibilities and pregnancy will wear on her in these trying times.
    Mason A polite Valardin princess that Mason first met at a Fire Stomp Fundraising Event just after the siege on Arx.
    Merek %bMerek has met Marian a few times, and believes her to be quite an honorable sort. She also likes his shop work it seems.
    Michael The most informed person I've encountered upon my return to Arx, even more than my uncle. Shes seen many things, and seems to have an air of tragedy about her like the other snow princesses.
    Mirari A stately lady who seems to be carrying a lot of heartache. There is hope blooming inside of her now, and I hope that it chases away some of her shadows.
    Monique My sister, the juggernaut. Love her to death. Probably mine.
    Morrighan The times I've encountered Lady Marian has been very few, but knowing her origins and what she has come to be, she is a woman I highly admire. She is tough and fierce, I hope that I can be half the woman she is, one day.
    Mydas A Valardin Princess that has no mind to hang out with Redrain and joke back with the worst of them. An interesting and pleasant combination. Disregarding the manner with which we met. Note to self, teach Asger some etiquette.
    Norwood Strong of arm and strong of personality, she's a woman I would have by my side in any conflict. Knowing she will be on the battlefield only makes me more sure of our successes.
    Quenia A Princess of House Valardin. Also a competitor during the Iron Pentathlon. She seemed nice.
    Reese She seems like a warrior princess of note and I feel that we have much in common with each other. She is serious about herself and her work and I like that. I look forward to getting to know her better and would to work with her. I think that there is great potential for us to be allies. I hope to work toward that.
    Renato She has seen much, I can tell by the way she carries herself, a warrior through and through. I am sure if she were not with child she would be a ferocious fighter. Perhaps one day I will be able to get instruction more than tips. I look forwards ot that day.
    Riagnon It's not for the likes of me to pass judgment on the Sword of Farhaven, but let it not be said that she is not as maternal as she is formidable. For I found her at the ready with a kind word when I most needed it.
    Rinel Incredibly brave--but I think she bears the scars of battle on her soul as well as her skin.
    Roland This princess fights like a _beast_ and Roland is a tiny bit besotted with her when she fights, and she's also the Sword of Sanctum which is basically the most honorable role Roland can imagine. She's great!
    Roran She is going through some profound change right now. But she will pull through and it will be invigorating to see what is produced when she emerges from the other side.
    Salvatore The legendary Princess Marian. Not that I was going to say that in public. But I can't imagine a woman of her strength, skill, and sharpness of mind finds it easy to be sidelined. She'll come back with a vengeance. In the meantime, I'll pick her brain for all I can.
    Samael She fights a duel with a High Lords over stockings. That is really intriguing. Most intriguing people are ones I have to figure out. I look forward to maybe getting to know her in the future.
    Sameera Difficult person. Seems sincere, though. Perhaps it is the alcohol on her. Don't entirely dislike her.
    Saoirse Laughed when a toddler sticky-handed my skirts! LAUGHED! She must know kids.
    Sasha One of the bravest I know and quite amazing with a sword. I never fret when she is near.
    Saya A River-Cousin? Maybe, maybe not. Time will tell.
    Sebastian A worthy combatant on the field. Skilled in combat. The duel with Victus was something to watch.
    Serafine Gods damn crazy beast of a fighter! Most fun I've had in ages, sparring her. Taught me some humility and some forgotten lessons best not left to dust.
    Sergei Apparently the Princess duels in dress to show off stockings. I-- I think I may have died and gone to the shining lands. Seems a tough sort, sure of herself, even without the stockings, I like her style.
    Sigurd The leader of our war effort, and one of the Redrain Princesses not touched by tragedy. Our Warchief, and someone I will pay close mind to in the future. To learn from.
    Silas A skilled warrior, by all accounts Silas has heard of, who invited him and the rest of the Iron Guard to the Gauntlet. While he has yet to find the time to do visit, he intends to do so eventually! Also seems to have a bit of luck on her side: she won one of the prizes at the Menagerie fundraiser. Someone Silas should keep an eye on.
    Skapti It seems she had a hand in training Dagon? If she's half as good as her student, she must be a banshee in a fray.
    Stefano A seemingly cheerful and friendly princess. Not so great at war games, but that's no great shame! She seems dashing.
    Talen Sword amongst the Valardin, married now to a Sword of the Redrain. Eleyna and Marian are pen pals from North to South, clever little missives that set Eleyna into laughter. It makes Talen suspicious.
    Theron Princess Marian is an impressive woman all on her own. Then you look at her weapon, Second Chance, and you know this is the real deal. I hope to spend some time with her and get to know her better, perhaps spar from time to time.
    Thesarin a fine choice for Sword and War Chief to Redrain. Well spoken of by them know her, looks to know her business. Not quite sure why a woman has two arms needs four swords, but even so.
    Thistle A beautiful Valardian Princess. Looks a lot tougher than most silks.
    Thorley A powerful force on the field - I see now why there was so much attention called to her at the tournament at the Gauntlet. She is one to measure your blade against; and perhaps realize how much further you still have to go.
    Tila Princess Marian agreed to help Tila polish her Northlands shav. She did that and more, speaking wisely of diplomacy, spirituality, and what trust to place in your fellow man or woman. A rare woman.
    Tomwell She doesn't trust me with Ianna, that's clear enough. But I can't help but feel fondly toward anyone who has Ianna's best interests at heart.
    Valdemar A stern woman, with what seems to be a keen mind for military matters. We had a productive conversation, with the possibility of more in the future.
    Valery She married Lord Fergus and made him less grumpy. She's nice. But she should be more careful with fights...
    Vayne A sword with a brain. I look forward to helping her discover the truths about herself that will truly set her free, Tehom willing.
    Vercyn Warchief of the North -- I am glad to catch up with her again after Stormwall. As uncomfortable as she looks, the Princess is still in good cheers! Now that is courage.
    Victus There's some people you look at and can just tell they're good at what they do. I don't usually see a fire in women, but she's got something about her. Most definitely.
    Violet A very strong and capable woman. I was able to watch her run the Gauntlet behind me. Unlike myself she avoided the dunk in the frigid pool, but us short women have to stick together for those tall hurdles. I look forward to speaking with her and running the gauntlet with her again.
    Zalika A Princess who has requested a new wool dress for me. I just hope she likes the design I come up with.
