Description: Petite and graced with plush curves, at first glance one might think Medeia is a spoiled noble who has never gotten her hands dirty. A jagged scar that runs under her collar bone from right shoulder to sternum suggests otherwise. Her hair falls in glossy brown waves around her shoulders, warm hazel eyes peek coyly from under thick, dark lashes, and her mouth can fall into a sultry pout as easily as a sly grin. Modesty is not one of her guiding principles, especially when it comes to her sense of style. She is a woman who enjoys ornamentation and artistic designs.

Personality: Outwardly bubbly, Medeia may come off frivolous yet polite at first. She is an easy conversationalist, able to hold her own when faced with unfamiliar subjects and shining like a star in mixed company. Her ability to gather information and sway opinions with subtlety can sometimes cause people to underestimate her, but a strategic mind operates behind her smile. Even so, if something needs doing, she will do it - even if it is messy.

Background: Like her older-by-a-few-minutes twin sister, Medeia grew up hearing the stories of grand adventures and courageous deeds carried out by members of the family. Unlike Neilda, she did not dream of adding to those tales. A bright, inquisitive, soft child who doted on her dolls and was awed by lacy gowns, the family expected Medeia would be a useful spare for making a political match.

And all seemed to be going according to that plan until a vicious bandit attack left her scarred and unable to cope with the pressures of the family. At just 15, she ran away and found her way to Arx where she could blend in among the throngs of people. For such a talkative woman, she is tight-lipped on the details of the few years she spent away from family. At 18, when she heard about her brother Estaban's death, she had a crisis of conscience and returned to Saikland Greens to reclaim her rightful place within the family.

Lucita has had her working to prove herself ever since. Medeia has been a hardworking, devoted member of the household and has finally earned the chance to join them in Arx.

  • Name Summary
    Adalyn I'm always a little in awe of those who dedicate their lives in service of others. As a Harlequin and a midwife, Lady Medeia Saik is one such person. But I have an inkling she's got a wild, adventurous side as well, and that intrigues me even more.
    Adrienne I met the Harlequin at my wedding, and she surprised me and Sebastian with a private wine tasting. Her generosity is as memorable as her lovely smile.
    Alarissa No doubt she will thrive within the Isles. I look forward to seeing how she takes Eswynd and brings them further into the compact.
    Alecstazi A young but experienced midwife who will be caring for my wife. She seems sweet and thoughtful. I am very glad to have her onboard.
    Amund Impressive use of hairpins for combat purposes. If she keeps practicing, she will successfully marry grace with deadliness.
    Anisha Lady Medeia Saik is so much more than meets the eye. Beyond her beauty, beyond her charm and grace, there are a myriad of stories. I have heard but one. But I am very much looking forward to learning as many as possible of them.
    Calypso I think this is how bizarre fetishes start.
    Caprice Fun and fashion-forward, what's not to like? And there's a certain loveliness in wearing your story so openly. I adore it.
    Cassandra A young woman I have come across many times but had seemed to miss making a full greeting with. Beautiful and plush, I should have noticed her resemblance to Lady Neilda.
    Cassimir My dear cousin has grown up so much since we last saw one another in Nilzana at age fifteen, so young, innocent and careless of the troubles brewing all around us. Words cannot express how thrilled I am to have found her here in Arx, of all places, safe and sound. I will never again take her companionship for granted.
    Catalana A quiet Saik, which is a pleasant change. She seems quite nice even if she has fallen for Martino's charms.
    Celine A vintner, apothecary, Harlequin, and the best Welcome Wagon in the city -- not necessarily in that order. I hadn't expected the Lycene to be so *kind*.
    Cristoph A member of Hous Saik, I don't cross paths with too many of them. But she's charming, engaging and possessing of a good wit. All traits that are useful to have when navigating the social landscape of the city of Arx.
    Dante She was quite pleasant to talk to, the right amount of charm and humor combined with grace and mystery. I must find out where she got that scar!
    Desma Friendly and welcoming, also a friend of Thea's which is never a bad thing. I'd like to get to know her better, see what she's about.
    Domonico Similar but so different to her twin and with a completely different set of skills it seems. From what I have gathered about her so far, I approve.
    Drake Twin of Neilda's, but less likely to be encountered on an adventure in the wild. I've seen her at family events but haven't had much time to speak with her personally. Seems friendly, but perhaps a bit easily bored by talk of war and duelling.
    Elizabetha A pretty and petite one, this Lady! She is soft, girlish, but steel flashes sharp and cold behind her eyes. I wonder!
    Esme I can't get a read on her. One day I think she's fun and we are good, then the next that she's not so fond of me. This, of course, makes her a good Velenosa and keeps people on their toes.
    Evaristo Lady Medeia is one of those that you fall into conversation with so naturally it feels like you've known them for years. Great sense of humor, lovely and all around pleasant - and a Harlequin too!
    Ezekiel It is always lovely to have those that enjoy my music. The winsome smiles and delightful presence makes it all the more lovely!
    Gerrick Lady Saik is a curious one, if not attention seeking. Though has the making to be a commoner in disguise amongst her noble friends, ah the scandal that could create. No, Lady Saik is a well rounded youth, with many of great tales and helpfulness to all no matter their social class.
    Giada Demure and likely prone to delicate cheer. Makes me wonder what she struggles to face.
    Gwenys A pleasant Lycene who enjoys a tussle. Here I thought they were all as malleable and dodgy as silk.
    Haakon Practical. Not ashamed of her scars, and drinks like a fucking fish. Also wearing a fucking fish, so.. style points.
    Harlex A beautiful silk with dangerous appetites. I would not mind plucking at her seams.
    Ilira Scars are, truly, artwork on beautiful women.
    Kaia The lovely twin to the lady Neilda of Saik is all too precious. Lady Medeia is a dear friend to my husband; a true charmer I dare say, with magic hands for children. I can see us growing close as we continue to work further for our people.
    Korka I get the impression she has had a hard life. And so long as she never tries to share it with me we will get along fine.
    Kritr She makes no apologies for her stature, nor should she. She walks as tall as any giant.
    Leena She seems like a social butterfly. Curvily attractive, she uses pleasantries to move between social aspects and conversations with ease, like a seasoned sailor does the sea. Though I haven't seen her in 'rough waters' I have a feeling she has enough charm, wit, and culture to navigate most stormy seas.
    Lena Talks... out of both sides of her mouth. Good to study for someone who says they're one thing and is another all together.
    Leola Finding your feet in Saik is hard. You tend to stumble on grapes. But she's doing fine, and I think she'll do fine. She has the attitude of the family.
    Lianne Thoughtful, in ways both obvious and less so. Bright. Marked by the same history that defined my life.
    Lucrezia She helps makes drinks and tests them alone. This is blasphemy, I demand a share!
    Mabelle The bubbly lady Saik who shares my affection for cookies and fashion. How delightful.
    Magaen Lady Medeia is pleasant company and someone worth knowing. Even I can recognize those things. Even if she wants to race cows or get thrown from bulls or something like that.
    Maharet She uses her words as a shield and her favor as a blade. I think her likely suited to her role
    Martino Allure, beguile, tantalise and tease. The Lady Medeia plays all four like a suit of cards within their fine hands. Careful with her. Lycene Ladies are dangerous.
    Narcissa Exuberance and mirth at the tangible delights of life - not a fault, mind you.
    Natasha A woman who seems to take genuine care for her royal charge and commends herself admirably in manner and speaking.
    Nijah A compassionate soul that is working towards the betterment of so many lives, and I hope that I get to be a part of that journey to help her see that ending to completion.
    Nina A Harlequin in Baroness Lucita's family! She seems very friendly and is someone I'm sure I should get to know. Maybe we'll end up doing services together someplace that is not a very crowded meeting.
    Orick Our first meeting was rather seredipitous and I can only hope that our second will be equally fortuitous because there are places in the Saiklands that I would very much like to visit.
    Orland Seems to know everyone. Gets around the social circles. Not surprising.
    Oskar The brown haired healer I listened so much about. She seems to know her way around a crowd and can make a conversation feel more interesting. Besides, she doesn't seem to back down from the challenge of dealing with Haakon, which is always a plus.
    Pasquale She seemed uncomfortable with me when we first met. I thought it might be down to the scar but now i think it was just bad timing.
    Piccola It was but a brief meeting, but she seems ... quiet? Reserved. Hard to say, but good breeding tends to breed good manners.
    Poppy Another Saik. At least there's been no mention of octopus related injuries yet. Though, from all accounts it doesn't seem out of the question either.
    Porter Quite a few noble ladies would have quickly exited a brawl like that, but she seemed to enjoy herself. Well, good for her!
    Ras That's totally Dia. How come she's a silk? What'd that guy say, Saik sisters? Shit.
    Renata A person has to admire the grit of someone prepared to spar with nothing but a pair of hairpins against an axe.
    Romulius Wonderful company - surprisingly at ease in the Lowers.
    Rook There is no denying the charm and elegance that the Lady Medeia displays. On top of that, she makes for an excellent conversationalist.
    Rowynna I remember seeing Lady Medeia from afar at the Golden Buckle Tourney, though didn't get to meet her until this evening. Charming and vivacious, she has an easy manner about her that simply draws a person in.
    Ryhalt Studious and polite.
    Rylan Always a pleasure to see a friendly face, even moreso one from my past. She seems happy, which is all I could ask for given the many troubling events that have happened between now and then - and even more, her future looks bright. I hope that it is.
    Sabella Lady Medeia is just absolutely delightful--a wonderful conversationalist, fashionable, friendly--I'm sure we are going to end up being just the very best of friends!
    Samira Sometimes you think certain things in life are a really big deal until a true friend comes along and teaches you what's actually important. And maybe you want to take that friend by the shoulders and shake them a time or two before you've properly learned said lesson, but we've both made it through in one piece. The truest of friends, I don't know what I'd do without Deia.
    Svana A social butterfly with more to offer than just social graces, but they will take her a long way in this world; especially when helping with her goals.
    Talwyn When I first met Medeia Saik, it was at the Black Fox, and after the cold wind that brought her in, she was a moment of warmth. Until I made mention of the marring of her skin. I should remember that some do not wear their marks as badges of honor. After my misstep and a reset, I found her conversation pleasant and her company pleasing and I hope to speak with her again. As she is sister to my dear friend Lucita, I imagine this will happen.
    Tanith She's grown into a fine woman, I'm oddly proud of her and the hand I may have had in it.
    Thea She's back in the city! My friend. She doesn't appear to have changed a bit. I'm glad she's here. First Neilda, now Medeia. It's like nothing has changed a bit...Well, maybe her. She's a bit more down. We'll have to fix that.
    Trueth Lady Medeia Saik is a wonderful impromptu hostess; outgoing and kind, she is someone I expect to speak with more often, especially considering she's a Harlequin and can help me pursue my endeavours in healing.
    Tyrus It is good to put a face to a mask. Even better when that mask reveals one not only able to contemplate the worst, but deal with it and keep her humanity. While the situation could be more ideal, I certainly do not regret meeting her.
    Yuri Lady Saik, draped in luscious honeysilk. She was oh so kind to offer such a gracious guide, and the Marquis was right; I would be a fool not to claim an open hand. But I am more intrigued by the prospect of a trial by combat. I do hope for a bit more fine gatherings with Lady Medeia.
