NAME: Rowenna

AGE/GENDER/RACE/WHERE FROM: 25, female, Eorling, from the southeasternmost farmlands of the West Emnet.

APPEARANCE: - for starters...just not so exaggerated. More athletic than she appears.

BITS OF CHARACTER/HISTORY YOU FEEL MIGHT BE HELPFUL IN DEFINING THE CHARACTER: Serious, ambitious, thoughtful, secretive, an eavesdropper. Was abducted by brigands at age 18, her farm ransacked and her widowed father killed in cold blood. She had been the brigands' slave at first, was forced to kill her first two babies, as well as two other abducted women in order to survive the harsh life of the brigands. Not above causing trouble for another if it improves her own position. She had planned how to achieve the role for herself of Eorl Eodwine's wife, but that having been stymied, was forced to face her worst nightmares with the help of Eodwine's new wife, Saeryn.

She has happily become a serving woman at Scarburg, under the protection of Eodwine. She finds Nydfara endlessly mysterious and interesting, and has a hunch that his secrets are not so different from her own; but he reveals very little. She thinks that he is attracted to her, and hopes that the teasing ways they have toward each other may be replaced by something more substantive someday. Until Nydfara shows any signs of changing, she gives him the space he seems to need while tentatively entering it from time to time, as her intuition guides her.


NAME: Harreld Smith

AGE/GENDER/RACE/WHERE FROM: 40, male, Eorling from Edoras

APPEARANCE: 6'5", big, strong, and muscular. Straight blonde hair and blue eyes.

BITS OF CHARACTER/HISTORY YOU FEEL MIGHT BE HELPFUL IN DEFINING THE CHARACTER: Thoughtful, quiet, hard worker, painfully shy around women, especially ones to whom he is attracted; single and desperately wants a wife. Has been smitten with Ginna who is above his station. She eventually returned his affection and he has asked for her hand in marriage, which she gave. They have been happily married but remained childless. During the hard winter she went missing, and although he and his brother Garreld, and others, searched far and wide, she was never found, alive or dead. He thinks her drowned or frozen, and mourns quietly, but is dutiful in his work.

NAME: Garreth Smith

AGE/GENDER/RACE/WHERE FROM: 35, male, Eorling from Edoras; twin brother to Harreld

APPEARANCE: see Harreld's

BITS OF CHARACTER/HISTORY YOU FEEL MIGHT BE HELPFUL IN DEFINING THE CHARACTER: Brash, bold, somewhat boorish, talkative, thinks out loud at all times. Is single and wants a wife, and is very straightforward in his attempts. Has not yet accepted the fact that his talk is off-putting to the women he wants to court. When Harreld joined Eodwine in Scarburg, he at first stayed in Edoras, but eventually joined him. He is still single and hasn't learned a thing about how to act around women in whom he is interested. He is getting frustrated with Harreld's black moods and endless dark silence, and is thinking that the pickings among females is poor and has not sign of improving, and thus is mulling going back to Edoras.
