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

[Basic Information]

Gender: Female
Birthday (including year): 2nd July, 232 AF
Home Castle/City: Ernsaw
House [Birth and Marriage if applicable]: Brabant


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

[Personality]

Written by Wren

Quote:
Rianne is independent, very much so and its hardly too surprising given that the household she found herself growing up in, not that she regrets anything about her upbringing. Although she has to admit that its probably made sure that she is not going to ever be taken as any kind of refined lady. Rianne is perfectly at home with being on a horse as she is with dealing with pursuits more commonly associated with young noblemen.

While she is not incapable of making friends she is cautious and careful in the people she chooses as close allies and companions and no one has yet managed to slip past her guard and become a real trusted confidante. Rianne is close with her siblings, in fact they are rather like the bear who decorate their family crest - fearsome but very loyal to those who are able to win them over. At times she has been described as sarcastic and a little bit too brazen for her own good. This is because while vulgar words wouldn't cross her lips, Rianne is a very straight to the point and earthy person - she will call it a spade if its a spade, and sex if its sex that is what is happening - it almost seems at odds with the rest of the lady but then again Rianne is often a contradiction even to herself and a riddle to the rest of the world.

Which just makes her smile all the wider and her fun-loving attitude much more appealing to others. She is often the life and soul of the party, letting her moods take her where they will and loving the results whatever they might end up being. As far as she is concerned life is not about the problems in it but the solutions just waiting around the corner to be found.

Intelligent and often impatient Rianne has little time for fools and while she is willing to accept others and their differences, she dislikes bigots with a deep and abiding passion. Seeing in them the worst kind of idiocy and blindness to the world as it stands. Willing to embrace the new and change, Rianne is always happy to take a step into adventure and never look back.

[History]

Written by Wren
Quote:
There was nothing at all unusual about her birth in fact it almost went unremarked given that she was also a girl, with three older brothers born first Rianne was either going to end up coddled or the tomboy that she has chosen to become.

Rianne was never going to let the fact she was a girl stop her from doing what she wanted and that meant copying the boys, they were idols and role models and Rianne was determined to make sure she did her very best - the fact she was smaller didn't stop her and in fact she used and still uses her slight frame to make all the difference when it comes to winning a fight.

At the same time she is not able to miss the fact she is not like other well-to-do women and in fact she rather likes that being the case. Rianne gets along with her brothers and the fact that she is only an inch or so shorter than her eldest brother means she views him as her favourite. It was a natural thing and they certainly have a common attitude to a lot of things.

Naturally the world moved on while she was gaining her skills in fencing, wrestling, riding and a host of other talents that make her more a warrior than a pretty adornment for some lord. She knew of the battles and was frustrated in not being able to join in...its something she is still unhappy about. Rianne is confident that she can make a difference in a fight but at the same time she is not going to argue this point -- well not until she can yell at her brothers face to face, that just makes it much more satisfying.

She has never got on well with her stepmother, she doesn't dislike the woman but Rianne has never fitted into what she believes a woman should be, as far as both of them are concerned they are happier being apart from one another and generally avoid spending time together in order to prevent the inevitable arguments.

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

[Writing Sample]

The wine was too weak, the stew too salty, but Rianne Brabant was content in the cozy common room of the inn. She sat in a corner nearest to the burning fire. Corners were safe, no one could sneak up on you when you were in a corner, one of the many rules she lived by. It was a too quiet a night; there weren't nearly enough people for her to make an escape into a crowded street. The rain was probably to blame for this, but Rianne was determined to get home, eventually.

A tattered dark green hooded cape hid her fiery red hair, the feature that made her stand out too much. "Just a few days to Ernsaw," she kept telling herself. Then what? She was a traitor in everyone's eyes and the only time she heard her name mentioned was with "turncloak." She pulled the hood as far over her head as she could, letting the shadows hide as much of her face as they would. Love became weakness when she chose it over her family. Being a lord's paramour doesn't mean anything if your family takes up arms from that lord. Now which side was she on? Rianne chose her own side, but first she'd have to finish her long overdue march home.

The soft leather boots were quiet across the floor. A few coins clinked into the innkeeper's hands before Rianne retrieved her black mare from the stables and headed north, homeward bound. It would be only a few days ride if the weather cleared up. She secretly hoped it wouldn't so she'd have more time to decide what to say to her brother. If she knew one thing, it was that there would be no groveling.

Also, this history is too short. Here is the link to Wren's original: here. You can use it directly and quote her, or just use what she left as a springboard, but I will need more information about her past.
