Lady Lisebet Farshaw

I was performing my ritual of sipping tea, shooting flirtatious glances and planning the demise of my closest rival...

Social Rank: 4
Concept: Purely Ornamental Jewel of Westrock Reach
Fealty: Valardin
Family: Farshaw
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Religion: Pantheon
Vocation: Courtesan
Height: 5'
Hair Color: raven
Eye Color: pale blue

Description: Tiny and raven haired Lady Lisebet packs a lot of personality into a small package. Her eyes are a pale blue that shine with some inner warmth and are framed by equally dark lashes. Her mouth is wide and her lips often curled half way up in a mysterious, knowing smile that suggests a hint of smugness. She stands five-foot-nothing in her stocking feet and is equally slender. Raven hair falls to mid-back in gentle waves, often left down save for a few strands to keep it back from her face.

(Today, Lisebet is wearing a long umbra gown which defines femininity in an effortless, easy-to-wear style. It has braided detailing that seems to look like twisted thorny briars over the shoulders and v-neck of the dress, and down the length of the very low cut back. A white-gold silk bet hits at the narrowest spot on the waist, embroidered with roses in full bloom, dotted with dew drops of glittery marcasite. There is an ethereal lightness to the layered skirts, overlapping to fall softly to the floor.)

Personality: At first blush Lady Lisebet comes across much like one of those porcelain dolls they make for children; beautiful but functionally useless. She's seems impractical and unskilled. Though with a sweet voice and upon second glance with a sweet enough disposition. Kind, thoughtful, and generous when given the chance to be so, she's a nice person. Loyal and devouted to her house. Not many see beneath that first impractical impression, those that do see the kindness she exhibits, and only a rare few notice the gleam of calculation that sometimes alights in her eyes.

Background: Lisebet Farshaw, youngest sister of Ryhalt Farshaw, Duke of Westrock Reach, was never taken very seriously, as her position in the family was never very serious. Much too far down the line to ever be a serious contender for heir to the Duchy, Lisebet's education was never taken very seriously; specifically in things like statecraft or politics or military strategies. Instead her tutors concentrated on her social niceties; her etiquette and manners; her ability to carry on a captivating conversation; her performance talents such a singing and dancing; her knowledge of the courts and the players there. Everything a young lady might need to know in order to survive as a highly successful courtesan in Arvum. When she was 16 she was sent off to serve an apprenticeship at court and learned invaluable lessons. Now at 18 she's ready to embark on her next adventures.

  • Name Summary
    Agatha Such an itty bitty thing! Very concerned she might have insulted Little Red (Dame Felicia Harrow) just by getting her name wrong, and that's sweet. Manners seem very important to her, which doesn't bode well for her thinking much of me. HAH!
    Aiden She believes there are limits to when it is advised that one can speak the truth. She understands the world is not black and white and that sometimes, we have to live in the gray to do right.
    Ainsley Earnest, kind and fun! She came to help with the party right before it.
    Alarissa A farshaw, a dedicated student. By far, one of the ones that I have sincerely enjoyed teaching and being around.
    Alban My cousin, Ryhalt's younger sister. I wonder if she's changed much since last I saw her back at Westrock. It is interesting that she comes to Arx, now, though. I wonder if Ryhalt thinks I need checking up on.
    Aleksei Well this will be interesting!
    Amari I think we're of similar dispositions, but still different enough to not bore each other to tears. She has a sharp intellect, is able to express herself eloquently and is very observant. I suspect she'd make a very good partner in crime!
    Barric Charming. Eloquent. Engaging. She is precisely what I always imagined a Valardin Lady to be. Which scares me, nobody is ever exactly what they seem. How interesting.
    Bianca Sister-in-law to my sweet cousin. She is a quiet sort, enigmatic in a way only those with shining eyes and shadowed poise tend to be.
    Cleo A helpful lady, who is concerned about my choice of see through clothing. I do not know why, but the southern people's leader said as much too. It is vexing.
    Cullen Pretty, charming, wickedly smart and graceful. And gods, that sense of humor lurking behind every word. I will get her to the treehouse for a drunken time, it is unavoidable. Unless someone is taking it up - again.
    Cullen Graceful, beautiful, intelligent and rather diplomatic - with a dash of adventure as well! She's a rare woman, and I am fortunate to know her as I do, and hopefully continue to do so.
    Dante She's not taken, is she? Right? Anyone... does anyone know... hello? Is Lady Lisebet taken? Is she available? Do I have to fight through a swath of would be suitors to... well, of course, I would but is one of them her /husband/?
    Demura A very polite Lady, and she seems like she's here to help her family. It's always good to see that.
    Duarte She was a genial host at the coffee tasting and barely batted a lash at me pouring a copious serving of scotch into the brew.
    Echo She's working on a collection of books and she's well acquainted with some of my friends. Also, she recommended a shop for me to check out so I'm very thankful to have bumped into her.
    Ectorion She seems to discredit herself first, but then has good ideas to offer despite her protests otherwise. She should certainly speak up more with them!
    Fecundo Lady Lisebet was a wonderful hostess for the event at Bold Espressions. The coffee was impressive and I may have to make it a regular stop on my daily errands.
    Harlex A business woman with a fine sense of fashion, courteous to her guests. Even if they are like myself. For some reason she reminds me of the starlings from back home.
    Jasper A pleasant young woman, still showing much of her youthful enthusiasm, but a solid representative of Farshaw... if perhaps a little quick to take to the snowballs.
    Jeffeth Lord Alban's cousin. She seems a very cheerful sort, she seems like the type that would be easy to get along with. I wouldn't mind spending more time with her.
    Jev Fun loving spider teammate. WE WON! Team winning for ever!
    Jordan A Lady of House Farshaw. Not entirely sure what her relation is to Lord Alban, whom I've met upon my arrival to the city, but she seems laid back and pleasant enough.
    Kenna She seems quiet, but also has a good sense of humor and an appreciation for dancing.
    Liara We didn't to chat so much as all that, but she was immediately chatty, and splendidly well-dressed. Someone I could get along marvellously with, I'm sure.
    Lou A lady of Farshaw who is interested in learning what the explorers have to teach so she might eventually become one. Lou would not mind teaching her at all!
    Lucita A friend of Sorrel's. From conversation, it would seem she has an agile mind. Will look forward to later discussions!
    Margerie The obvious first impression is that she is a lovely young lady. I have a sense that she listens and takes a great deal in, perhaps more than she lets on. There is a thread of confidence and ambition there that should serve her well.
    Melody Those around her seek to protect her, and it's probably for good reason. She's tiny! Smaller than me! Also not very martially inclined, so -- Yes, she could probably use a good retinue of knights at her side. Still, I can't help but wonder if people are /too/ overprotective of such a person?
    Meriah Reminds me of a little bird flutterin' around, being pretty. I hope she gets to keep every bone she has!
    Mirari I've seen her around the city several times and haven't been able to sit alone and speak with her. I hope to get that opportunity soon.
    Neb In the face of loss her answer is larger weapons.
    Niklas Proud Oathlander. Giving it her all to support her duke's endeavor. A credit to Westrock Reach.
    Orvyn An excitable Lady of our Liege house. She won at events due to both skill and luck, so there is clearly more to her that begs to be known.
    Petal She is very pretty, seems kind and likes my shop.
    Reese I seem to run into her often recently. She is a subtle elegance, present and polite without trying to grab the central attention. She seems to have confidence, enjoying herself and presenting herself well.
    Reigna A sweet young lady of Farshaw, mild mannered and somewhat... timid? I recall I was precisely that way when I first came to Arx. I bet she will bloom as I did, this city has a way of doing that.
    Sabella Lady Lisebet Fairshaw is a soft spoken, absolutely perfect lady! Every time I have met her she is polite, friendly, and as seen by her help with the new coffee shop, quietly ambitious! I enjoy all of our conversations and there is clearly a lot going on in that head of hers that a chance meeting might not let on! She's wonderful!
    Theo A charming young Lady of House Farshaw prone to flirtations; far more amusing than most Oathlanders I've met in Arx, that much is for certain.
    Tynan A short, well-dressed and quite good looking Lady. Quite pleasant and can keep up with some jokes, which is always a good sign.
    Venturo A delightful audience, and an engaging conversationalist. I look forward to hosting the Lady Farshaw some day at the brewery.
    Vercyn The Lady Farshaw delivered a fine joke and made me laugh. It is more than just the words of the joke, but the way she delivered it. Signs of a sharp intellect.
    Veronica A rather proper and well-spoken lady, and Amari's friend. The chat about marriages and divorces was... interesting, and I get the sense that she likely shares my plans on avoiding an arranged marriage as long as possible.
