Description: Feminine and powerful are two words that come to mind when looking at Xanthe. She has a shapely figure that is made to catch the eye and to soften the hard tones of her tanned olive hued body. She has strengthened her short body, to the point that her small stature can not be mistaken for weak. Her dark brown hair is cut to frame her face, drawing attention to the femininity of her features and her chocolate brown eyes.
Personality: Xanthe is like fire and ice, mostly ice because she behaves coldly towards those she doesn't know. Socializing with people and attempting to meet expectations put on her is very annoying. This can make her seem like an Ice Queen to all but her family and friends. With her family and friends she is an affectionate person. She cares deeply for those she holds dear. She also has a code of honor that is based around defending those who need it without taking away their freedom to defend themselves. She will use her combat skills to do this, generally. Her desire to protect the honor of someone and follow her code of honor is part of what makes her fire.
Background: Xanthe is a child of nobility and received the education to that effect. Sure, it might be basics in the social aspect because she didn't enjoy it much but she has the proper education. Her interest was in weaponry. That she excelled in, met all expectations for it. She spent much time traveling, mostly by land since she is not big on being on the water, the irony of someone sworn to Velnosa not being fond of being on a boat is not lost on her. When she heard what happened to her family after Gyre was defeated she was surprised. She was not really upset, though, when the March was given to someone else. It happens. She travelled as far as she felt like, trying to hone her preference of using large weapons. Her travels eventually lead her to join the Champions and the Society of Explores, both of which caught her interest. Not long before arriving in Arx she was recruited by someone in the Iron Guard. She saw no reason not to join. If being a member of the Iron Guard proved to be a hindrance to her goals then she would leave it. She does not lack goals, to note. They are a bit varied but ultimately they fall into two categories, combat and exploration. It is a bonus when the two can be combined.
|Ilira||She has about her a social indifference that I sense may translate to the passion for battle, given her bearing and turn of phrase.|
|Kaia||She saved my life, once, long ago during a SoE expedition; and, I shall forever be grateful. She's a brave woman and a most capable fighter. A boon to Igniseri and a fine Champion!|
|Mabelle||An Igniseri lady of very few word. Seems like she enjoys the sword.|
|Martino||The Champion, Lady Xanthe, was a delightful student of mine upon the dance floor. Her graceful steps, while slow to start, show that fine softer side to the Igniseri that we all do-so adore.|
|Seren||I do hope Lady Xanthe is a showier fighter for the Champions than she is a talker. But she's not the worst customer ever, just not a woman of many words.|
|Vittorio||A bit on the shy side. I hope her family helps her open up. Or Sabella might.|
|Zakhar||A noble with a sense of humor|
|Zoey||A hardened combatant of relative few words. She aught to get on with Ian just fine.|
