Folwren is battling Black Riders on Weathertop.Folwren is battling Black Riders on Weathertop.
Name: Saeryn
Age: 25
Race: Human
Gender: Female
Where from: Rohan.

Appearance: Tall, slim, fair of face. Auburn hair, bordering closer to red than brown. Hazel eyes.

Some Character and History: Saeryn is the second to youngest child of four. She is only older than her younger brother by a matter of minutes - they're twins. Her parents both died before she was 14. Her older brother, Fenrir, tried to make her act according to her noble birth, and presumably cooped her up in the house all day, stuck her in dresses, and expected her to act like a lady. How exactly he treated her is unknown, but when she was barely 18, she ran away from him and found her way to Edoras. There she remained, staying under Eodwine and working in his household, first accepting his protection, and then moving upward until she was his hostess, holding the position of 'Lady' as more of an apprenticeship than a betrothal or even courtship.
When people continued to question her on the point of marrying Eodwine, she eventually could not handle the strain and left for a short period. She came back, after the household had moved to Scarburg, and worked again in the house. She and Eodwine did, in fact, fall in love and married.
Saeryn had children within the first year of marriage. She bore twins - a girl and a boy.

Before marrying, she tended to be rather flighty. She always spoke exactly what came into her head, whether it be fitting or not. She never really hid her emotions. When she faced a trouble too big for her to overcome, she ran from it. After coming back to Eodwine the second time, she began to change. She grew more ladylike in her bearing and her speech, and she became stronger in the face of adversity.
Having children mellowed her even more, and she continues to become a wiser and more patient woman. Still, we shall see occasionally her old, fiery character, but on the whole, she has become quieter, stabler, calmer.


Saeryn and Eodwine's children

NAME: Eoghan and Ruari

AGE/GENDER/RACE/WHERE FROM: Eoghan is a boy, and Ruari is a girl. They're about 5 years old. They were born at Scarburg, the son and daughter of Eodwine and Saeryn.

APPEARANCE: Being twins, Eoghan and Ruari are both somewhat small for their age. Eoghan has blond hair, as his father, but his eyes are hazel, like Saeryn's. Ruari was born with fiery red hair, and her eyes are green.

BITS OF CHARACTER/HISTORY YOU FEEL MIGHT BE HELPFUL IN DEFINING THE CHARACTER: Ruari was born first, and though an hour's difference in age wouldn't seem to account for much, it is clear she is the oldest. She takes the lead in the twins' activities, and Eoghan follows meekly behind doing almost everything she encourages him to do. Eoghan is quiet and passive and relatively well behaved when left to his own devices. Ruari is curious and active and prone to trouble. They are both intelligent and agile and capable children.
