Lady Lys de Lire
I'm going to start my own fight garden. Where everyone comes to just fucking fight.
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.
|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.|
|Alessandro||Very engaging, and I appreciate her taking notes. It makes one feel as if one's time has been well spent.|
|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.|
|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!|
|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.|
|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.|
|Reese||She is playful and sassy, likely quite tough.|
|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.|
|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!|
