Default Lisanne Brabant

LISANNE BRABANT




-------------------------------

[OOC Information]

Your Name: Witchy
RP Experience: None at all. Definitely n00b.
Your Character's Player Base: Katie McGrath

-------------------------------

[Basic Information]

Character Name: Lisanne Brabant
Character Age: 20
Gender: Female
Birthday (including year): July 18, 221
Home Castle/City: Rosenherst, Arbrecht
House: Brabant

-------------------------------

[Personality]

Known to be the medicine woman of the family, Lisanne is has a broad knowledge of medicinal herbs and healing techniques. While she can defend herself with a blade just as well as any Brabant, her favorite form of protection is the use of poisons. She can both cure and kill and has honed both skills since she was old enough to read. While there are certain members of her family she would love to torture with a little monkshood, she would never use her deadly art on her own blood.

Loyal to none but those she calls family, Lisanne’s devotion comes in the form of home economics and caring for the sick and wounded. While she is a homebody and would prefer to keep the comforts of everyday routines, war is a very real thing and following behind the troops to care for the wounded is a burden she is willing to take. Blood is not but the color of her favorite poppy and the pallid color of death a lily in disguise. However, the death of a loved one is not something she takes lightly.

Lisanne takes joy in the nurture and care she offers her family while on the home front. Laundering clothes, stitching tears, preparing meals, and scouring the old stone floors are necessary responsibilities to keep the home running smoothly. Delegating tasks comes easily, but for those not willing to lend a helping hand learn quickly that provoking Lisanne to anger is a grave mistake. The girl holds a grudge and will stay temperamental for days. She becomes morose and short-tempered, and thin-skinned during these times and is best left to her own devices.



-------------------------------

[History]

Born on a heady summer day a few minutes after her twin brother, Erik, Lisanne is the youngest of two children and the only daughter of Hubrecht Brabant and his wife. Lisanne never wanted for more siblings as she was never lonely, being close to her twin and having more cousins than she could count. There was one cousin that the girl called the bane of her existence since the day they met. Rianne Brabant would become Lisanne’s favorite rival.

Brought up to be a proper lady amongst the death, destruction, and constant rebuilding of Ernsaw, Lisanne took pride in herself. Her dark, Brabant hair her favorite feature, she would spend hours grooming and fussing over her looks and practicing her etiquette. That was until her mother’s ailment caused her to take responsibility for the more matriarchal matters of the house. Vanity, she learned, was a useless pastime.

However, she would find delight in the practical teachings of herbalism and cultivating her own garden to produce medicinal herbs. Before the age of thirteen, Lisanne was treating minor cuts and scrapes as well as burns and bruises. With the ability to cure most minor ailments, it was the outbreak of the plague that forced Lisanne to take her abilities and learning to the next level. Unfortunately, Lisanne was unable to cure her family that had become victims of Turpis Morbi, only easing their aches and helping make the transition into death painless.

Though she could remedy several illnesses and help preserve life to an extent, brought her the idea that she might also be able to take life. When she was sixteen, Lisanne caused her father much anger when she tested her a couple different poisons on a few of their goats. It turned out that most plants such as hemlock and mandrake were competent pain killers; higher doses of caused feelings of euphoria and hallucinations, while too much brought on death.

At the age of seventeen, Lisanne would lose her father to war, having been slain while trying to defend the royal family. Her mother, bed ridden and unconscious most days caused Lisanne to feel as if she and Erik were orphaned. However, they were old enough to care for themselves and discovered that no one was safe from the grips of war and death. They were lucky to have the rest of the bears by their side.

While the desire to stay home was lost to her duty to her eldest cousin, Jager, she knew better than to argue. Lisanne knew road to Mier and back would be filled with trepidation, and it was. Lisanne and her cousin Nikoline would become the Fitzwulf’s prisoners until the war’s end. While Ernsaw is still her home, the idea that she could be so easily taken from it has caused the walls of her home to lose the secure feelings of sanctuary and the happiness to fade from her life.

[Writing Sample]

Quote:
Lisanne quietly hummed to herself as she collected bed linens from a near empty castle. There was much work left to be done and it was just after sunrise. The orange globe hung low over the horizon as its light just began to filter through the trees and into the windows of their keep. If she wanted these chores to be done before supper, she would have to pick up the pace. No one would appreciate damp linens come bed time.

The only sound Anne could hear as she traversed the dimly lit corridors of the castle were that of her own soft footsteps and her pleasant humming. However, it was not long before she realized she was not alone. Extra steps echoed in the hall behind her; no one should have been in the bedroom corridor besides her. The rest of the family were tending to other chores or sparring in the yard. Something was most certainly amiss.

Pretending not to notice the obvious footfalls behind her, Anne slipped into the next room, basket in hand and left the door ajar. She continued to hum all the while, rustling the sheets as she pulled a dagger from beneath her skirts. Her humming ceased as the footsteps were heard right outside the door. Whoever it was would soon find them face to face with her blade dipped in pure nightshade oil. Lisanne hoped it was just a family member.
