Description: While not toweringly tall Lys does still stand above the average woman. She's a touch on the scrawny side except that she has the bearing of one who has recently filled out with some muscle definition. Long and graceful limbs have started to gain tone and definition. A halo of copper red curls adorns her and occasionally she tames them into a braid or some other high fashion style. Her eyes are a bright glimmering emerald, fringed with dark lashes. Her mouth is wide and expressive and just as likely to smile as to curl in a snarl of rage. Lys' skin is pale and speckled with a smattering of freckles.

Personality: Lys is the kind of girl one could imagine saying something like: "Don't make eye contact with me if you don't want to fight." It isn't that she's unpleasant, she can be quite charming when she wants to be... But it's just that she'd prefer to argue or better yet fight! Unless there's something expensive of pretty involved. She's quite like a magpie: aggressive, but loving of shiny things.

Background: Lys (that's 'lies' not 'liss') was born in the boroughs to some unremarkable family, she lived a pretty average life. She was poor and hated it. When she got old enough she started working as a shop apprentice to a tailor, and fell in love with the fancy clothing that would be commissioned. However, she never picked up the skill. She's not particularly good with a sewing needle. She also lost that job, and many afterward, for her tendency to fight with the customers or her boss or ... anyone that happens to pass by.

However, her life turned for the better when her cousin- Audric -was suddenly ennobled after then Prince Talen, now Archduke-Consort, Velenosa won the Rose Tournament and used his prize to found a Rose Barony for Audric who became Audric de Lire. So Lys tracked him down after a sometime and reminded him of her existence (he seemed a little surprised), and she became Lys de Lire.

She also realized around the same time that her cousin was the head of a Sellsword Company, and that would allow her to FIGHT quite a bit. And so... She asked him to let her join. And that is how Lys came to be. Lady Lys de Lire, member of the Valorous Few.

Name Summary
Aahana Quite an intriguing woman who I hope to become fast friends with.
Agatha I think she's not the kind of girl you take home to your mama, now, but she tells you no lies. Well. At least she flirts really big at Princess Colors!
Alarissa The voice of Baron Audric's land. A champion as well. I can only hope that she takes up my cause for cats. She seems like she'd put on a good show.
Aleksei Audric's cousin. Exactly what you'd expect from those words.
Alessandro Very engaging, and I appreciate her taking notes. It makes one feel as if one's time has been well spent.
Alexis Lady Lys d'Lire (Lies d'Leer?). Probably related to Commander Baron Audric d'Lire. Seems um. Exuberant. In a good way? Like Baron Audric but not as disturbing.
Appolonia There is more to this Lady Lys than she lets on. Very keen, very sharp. I hope she finds her missing brother and that her dreams lead to answers, if she so desires to seek them out.
Ariella Keeper of flavorful and delicious livestock. Will have to secure her friendship, sneak into her home as might a cuckoo bird, and devour all of her pets.
Aslaug (A drawing of a woman atop a horse. The woman's grip on the horse is awkward, and her seated position atop it treacherous.)
Austen An interesting person - she seems to be very different on the battlefield to off. Today is the first time I have had a chance to speak with her, she seems agreeable and confident in herself. Plus she has a goat and a cat. I like cats.
Barik A make-believe damsel in distress, with an appeal for former enemies.
Berenice Good gods, I covet that gown. And a few other things besides.
Bethany It's the privilege of the Peerage to behave as it pleases them to behave.
Bliss Wild woman, but she reminds me a lot of myself when I can be myself.
Caith Anyone who goes drinking with a kitten to cuddle is obviously doing something right -- very, very right! I came across her when I got caught up in King Alaric's pub crawl; she called out a drink for me to name. I will neither confirm nor deny that what I came up with was named after one of His Grace's more useless body parts but I will say that it made her sputter. What fun! I hope to run across her and her kitten again soon.
Caspian I see potential in her to be a great Champion! Still needs to pratice her fighting, but what she lacks in skill she makes up for in style and good looks!
Cirroch Not many people jump on a northernman with an axe. That takes courage!
Cullen Bold. Charming. Sexy. Intelligent. Dashing. Oh, and a marvelous sense of style! As if her background was something to hold against her...I think it only made her more alluring. I will see more of her.
Duarte A very thin social veneer for who I presume to be one deeply motivated by convictions, temperament and a lust for danger. Hope her ribs feel better soon.
Echo At first, I thought she was playing a joke on me. Then I realized that she was serious, and then she -- How does one even put this woman into words? What is GOING ON?!
Eleyna My newest protege that has a penchant for brawling yet somehow also manages to have exquisite taste in seasilks and hair accessories. I enjoy the juxtaposition of it. It's probably why I decided to take her on.
Grazia She seems clever and responsible, poised and willing to please.
Iseulet I didn't think it was possible for someone to remind me of the Baron de Lire so much. I guess it runs in the family - that smile full of teeth and all that enthusiasm for a fight. Delightful, if a little terrifying at first, the smile is infectious.
Jeffeth Seems like a fire blooded young lady, eager to take on a scrap even when she very well may end up in the dirt. That's something I can get behind.
Jordan She's very rough and tumble in a way that reminds me of the people at the Murder. I don't dislike it, no. Here's to seeing more of her in the future.
Joslyn She's the cousin to Audric De Lire, I should relly make sure she's given all the help she needs to get herself settled in. She seems to find so much joy in all the little things, it's an infectious kind of thing.
Kenna I've written messages back and forth with her about //economics// but my word - that FIGHT. She absolutely upholds the reputation this barony holds!
Liara I don't know whether to call her bold or brash or brazen or all three, but it's all altogether entertaining, and she is splendid company.
Mailys She seemed quite nice, though she ended up being quite annoyed with Theo. I can't blame her, someone needs to smack him from time to time!
Melody She didn't seem at all upset that I was lounging in her home. In fact, she was happy to play along!
Monique Fun and flirty! But there's likely a spine of steel in there somewhere, unless I miss my guess.
Niklas Lys de Lire still sounds like a made up name, but my assistant insists it's real. She has dreams she shares in her journals, but it's the ones she doesn't that seem the most interesting.
Oswyn She strikes me as tempestuous; I imagine she's never boring to be around.
Pasquale I could easily believe she's a princess and byblow and all of it. Would hardly be the strangest tale told about the de Lires. Entirely charming, whatever the case.
Reese She is playful and sassy, likely quite tough.
Riagnon The secret bastard daughter of a High Lord! WOW!
Rohran A curious creature, the Lady Lys de Lire. I get the sense that she is normally less reserved than was her manner at the Grotto. Perhaps it was the nudity, though that does not line up with what I understand of the southern people. I suppose we all have our days. With so brief a visit, it is hard to gain a fair measure of anyone, but I would not mind a chance to understand her further. If anything, there is her goat to talk of. Who cannot bond over a goat?
Rook Caution: Hot. Keep Lys away from fine cloth, posh company and anything that's breakable. May cause allergies to the Lycene to flare up in bouts of hives.
Ryhalt Such beautiful hair, the same shade and sheen of burnished copper. It makes one want to wish to reach out and touch it.
Sabella The Lady de Lire is charming, hilarious, and often without her hat. I wonder what Baron Audric would think about that! I'd like to get to know her more, she seems a very fun person to be around!
Seth Lies d'Lire, a companion to Prince Theo. She is an enigmatic young woman who makes it difficult to discern whether the words she speaks hold any truth to them at all. The perfect skill for certain drinking games, I'm sure.
Sorrel Charming and affable, with one of the little Keaton goats. She seems quite social and pleasant. Perhaps we'll get to know one another better soon.
Sparte Oh, Lady Lys. She has, um... Energy. A lot of energy. I don't think I've ever seen someone turn losing a spar into an excuse to get their opponent out of their armor before. Oh, no! Not my armor. ha ha. ...
Talen Spirited, with a streak of Audric. Or does Audric have a streak of Lys? It's not really clear, but she's a de Lire, and can throw a punch.
Theo A startlingly attractive young noblewoman from House de Lire. I'm intrigued, and more than satisfyied she saved me from an awkward conversation with my dear sister.
Tynan A lovely Lady. Seems to speak in considerate means, something I always appreciate from nobility.
Valarian Still the fierce and violent girl I remember from the lowers, no title can change that. Thank the gods, it would be a real shame if she turned into something tame and acquiescent. I look forward to more fighting!
Vercyn This Lady Le Lire is a strange woman. I am not entirely sure what my first impression of her is!
