Dubhaine Family/Aednadh

Etymology

A name in the archaic Fontanese tongue Aednadh means "little flame". Hence Aednadh's full name means "the bright hope of the women of dark countenance".

Background

Aednadh is the daughter of Lady Rhidhana Dubhaine, last Minister of Defence of Fontan. As with all the line of Moira she has a powerful, sinewy frame but her softer features combine with her honey-blonde hair and vivid green eyes to give her an otherworldly beauty. Some have speculated that her father may not have been human, though the famed reticence of the Dubhaine family in such matters casts little light on the truth.

Fostered amidst the cultivated court of Margravine Brigdha the young Aednadh is no stranger to the arts or sciences, though her passion for the hunt has given her ample exposure to more practical pursuits befitting her noble status. Few doubt that in time her sword arm will become as feared as that of her Dames, or that her pen will be equally as deadly if she chooses a political career.

Personality

There is a dominant streak in the Dubhaine blood which Aednadh inherits, combined with a love of adventure. However the recent death of her mother has affected her deeply and she is uncertain what the future holds.

Household

Iraen Once Lady Moira's squire, Iraen is now chatelaine of the household and a link to Aednadh's mother.
Yfain A giant of a man with an oft-times murky past, Yfain is a reaver's reaver: happiest when the ale flows freely and there's mischief to be done. Following the disappearance of Lady Moira he became first Rhidhana's self-appointed bodyguard and now Aednadh's. Age somehow hasn't dimmed his lust for life nor appreciably weakened his physique, though his wild hair and beard are now entirely grey.
Neris The widow of Moira's personal physician Helion, Neris has an extensive knowledge of herb lore and custodian of an extensive collection of medical treatises published in Fontan and the north.
Rollo (Rollo the Young) A gregarious man in middle-age, he boasts a deep scar across his forehead from his youth as a freebooter. Rollo is supposedly the family's chief reeve, but more often than not he's to be found in company with Yfain or keeping an eye on Aednadh when she travels abroad.
Leopald Grandson of Carl Heinman and captain of Aednadh's bodyguard, The Ghost Watch.
