Lady Grace's Character: Annie Sigurd

Postby Lady Grace » Fri Jul 13, 2012 9:29 pm

Don't call her a barbarian.

Annie was once Annbjorn Ulfsdottir, brought up in the old ways to revere the past and shun the modern world as any proud Vestenmannavnjar should. But even as a child, she despised that sort of life, seeing it as backward and (more importantly in her point of view) not comfortable in the slightest. Her father's sister Trudie tried to encourage them to move to Kirk, even offering to fund them herself and get them involved in her business interests in the Jeweler's Guild, but her family would constantly brush her aunt off. The last time Trudie made the offer, her parents and younger brother Peder even threatened violence.

That was the final straw in the girl's mind. Fed up that her family preferred to be stagnant, she left with Trudie to join her in Kirk. If her family wouldn't enjoy her aunt's generosity, she would. She took to the "civilized life" like a duck to water, appreciating all the wonders Kirk had to offer. To hammer the point home that she was severing all ties with the past, she called herself Annie, adopted her aunt's last name and embraced herself as a Vendel. Touched, Trudie enrolled her in one of the better Leegstra schools in Kirk, thinking the young woman's imposing figure could make her a fine bodyguard. Annie is devoted to Trudie and has taken well to protecting her aunt's business dealings, unafraid of dealing with the seedier side of life. She has a sharp tongue, but is trying her best to rein in it. After all, insulting prospective customers and vendors is just poor business sense. She dresses in utilitarian fashion most of the time, usually a Swordsman's breeches and tunic with her hair pulled back. About the only concession Annie makes to her roots is preferring to use an axe over a broadsword ("Seems t'get my point across better if there's trouble!").

But please, don't call her a barbarian.

I haven't finished making that lucha school yet!

On the other hand, she is visually similar to this lady... ;)

I'm curious LG, Which Donovan Master did you get to teach you this (and when did you have time to go find one and train with him/her)?

LG, since you're the first person to do this, I''ll just tell you the reason I ask is because in HoA, you'll need to do just those things (which can be done in Personal Agendas) to get EW in a school different than yours.

Yes, I'm actually going to roleplay this ;)

Just a warning, there aren't many Donovan Swordsman here in Altamira, finding one, and getting them to agree to train you, may take some time.

Understood. I will be composing a letter to the head of the Swordsman's Guild chapterhouse in Altamira to hopefully get the ball rolling. And I'm sure Dave has his evil two cents to offer when you two do the Secret GM Handshake out in the back room. ;)

I'm just sayin' maybe it's best not to know the origins of Dracheneisen for the sake of one's sanity even if it is totally fossilized Drachen poop.
