Lady Colette Laurent
Why would I rely on a weapon when I can be the weapon?
Description: Pale. Tall. Thin. Colette is a whisp of a young woman, with an intense gaze. One who looks like a particularly strong gust of wind could blow away. She is lanky, sporting some long limbs to go with her taller frame. She seems to lack in the way of muscles, as well as womanly curves, but she makes up for it with extreme, dancers like grace to her movements. Her brown hair, neither too dark, nor too light, makes her the odd one out among her older siblings. As do her big brown eyes, which she often keeps lined with a dark khol. She has soft features, which go perfectly with her /very/ soft spoken nature. When she does speak, she speaks with an extremely thick Oathlands accent, showing she did not spend much time with anyone outside of her family growing up.
Personality: Quiet. Soft Spoken. Shy. Sheltered. Innocent to a fault. These are all easy words to use to describe her at a distance. Despite growing up in a very privalaged position, (being the youngest of a ducal line, no one expecting her to really have to do much), She has turned out quite reserved, and very conservative for a young lady of her age. She is no nonesense, and quite dry, and sometimes that might even appear on the unfriendly side, but she never acts that way out of mallice that is just who she is. Kind when she needs to be, and stern when appropriate, it is not impossible to get a smile from her, but it is very rare. She has even been known to crack a joke or two, but most would likely mistake it for a simple observation.... Poor girl at least thinks it is a joke.
Background: Growing up the baby of a ducal line usual has it's advantages, but perhaps the slight disparity of age worked to reverse that for Colette. She always fiercly admired her older siblings, but given she was so little, and seen as frail and delicate, she always managed to be somewhat of an underfoot figure. She always wanted to be apart of her older siblings adventures and shenanigans, but never really found a way to fit in. This caused her to take up the art of sneaking around, just to be close to them, and often led to her just being in the way. All of this led to her more silent and demure demeanor, which she found a way to channel in to her love for sneaking about and spying on her siblings, but given how protective everyone was of her, it usually ended in getting her siblings in trouble. In the long run it might have left her a bit more on the socially awkward side. As her siblings grew up and began departing for Arx and having more and more important roles to fill in the duchy, and having very little responsibilites left for her, she slowly became more and more reserved. Finally as she grew old enough she decided to depart for Arx herself and see what all the fuss was about.
