LIRRA THORNE|THIRTY SIX | LADY | REGESVARD|Full Name:
Lirra Anne Thorne (formerly deGrada)
Occupation::Wife to Mason Thorne,Affiliations:
Sister to Roland and Addison deGrada.
Fairly Rodani in appearance, Lirra looks similar to her brothers. She has long, thick dark hair that falls in loose curls, tan skin (though hers remains unblemished, due to not being a man and such) and sea colored eyes. She is an average height for a woman, and is fairly thin, though since having given birth to three children, she has gained some womanly curves (not that she was ever lacking). She considers herself to be still in the prime of her looks, with plump lips and soft skin.
Generally, she dresses in a traditional fashion, wearing long dresses and colors that complimented her pallet. She tries to keep up with the latest trends, and dress in a “alluring way”. Just because she’s married doesn’t mean she’s dead.Personality:
Lirra has always considered herself as a lady- she was taught how to please men, by singing, reading, cards, she was taught how to be charitable and good natured and funny, to be witty and clever and follow her family. These were the lessons that were pounded into her from the moment she could walk. But in spite of all her lessons, Lirra learned other things too. She learned the politics of court, and who was trust worthy and who was not.
However, Lirra is also an impulsive, whirlwind of a woman. She loves and loves deeply, if she feels scorned then you shall feel her wrath. Some say she’s a bit sensitive, and takes things too seriously. She can be considered vain, often worried about how she looks and maintaining them. She is easily excited and easily distracted, but will stick to her guns if she cares about the point she is making.
She’s also naughty. She loves to do things that will get her in trouble with her husband, from small to large, and she loves to get into things she doesn’t belong in. Most of the time, Lirra feels caged. She despises Mason, some would even say hates him. She regards him with nothing but icy chills. It’s the one thing she will never agree on with Roland or her father, sticking her with the soulless, king loving man. She understands that she had to marry, but more often than not, she questions as to why she had to marry him. Was there not a lord or some noble that could have easily taken his place? Sometimes she feels like they punished her, made her get trapped into the same loveless marriage that Roland was objected to. He could have easily married Alannah, and probably would have ended up in the same place. Yet he did not. And so Lirra was doomed to the same fate. And that is something she is not sure she will ever forgive Roland for.
Despite her anger at Roland, she is still loyal to him, not as her king and superior, but as his sister. He has always been one of her closest confidantes, just like Addison and Alannah, and she would do anything to protect any of them, including her own death. She loves her children, and feel they are the only blessing from her marriage. She hopes they will not be subjected to the demands she was as a child, but fears for the worst as they are now part of the royal family.History:
