[Human] Ailish Argall
« on: April 24, 2012, 01:31:27 PM »
Basics
Name: Ailish Argall

Age: 20

Date of Birth: 677 (a Harvest baby)

Gender: Female

Species: Human

Family: Of the house Argall: a lower noble house, but one known for it's practical nature, hard work, and honesty, Ailish is a perfect, one might say stereotypical image of what one might think of the House Argall.

This is the number one reason she's the daughter sent to marry well.
 
The rest of her family, it's hit or miss about the Argall traits.  She's the 5th of seven children and the fourth daughter.  There is not any provision for her should she not marry well, which is a little indicative of how well the Argall family harvests have been over the last few years.

The family, is entirely dependent on agriculture for their fortunes.

Class: Lower Nobility

Religion: Shain.  She is a very devout follower of all the rituals, and traditions of this religion.

Occupation: Noble (though she would say farmer, if pressed.  She has managed a large portion of the estate and the wheat production: one of the few profitable areas of the estate, for the last 2 years.)

Education Level: She is educated: reading and writing, history, religion, but knows little of politics, and the city.  She was educated at home, by the same tutor that tutored all her other siblings. 

Strengths: Practicality, organizational skills, thriftiness, discretion, and a deep affinity with nature.

Weaknesses: Strength, she's not the strongest of people.  Lack of any and all political knowledge.  Shyness.

Skills: Equestrian skills, animal husbandry, gardening.  She's also good at household management.

Powers: Health: she's able to make things healthier: be it plants, animals, and to the smallest extent, humans.  For plants and animals, it's the ability to heal (not immediately, but with effectiveness), but with humans, it's more a sense of feeling better.

Power Level: Slight: Unless one knew it was there, or was looking for it, it would not be obvious.

Physical Description  Blond, blue-eyed, and looks frail.  She isn't, she's just not the strongest person in the world.  In fact, her health is usually quite excellent.  If she spends too much time in the sun, freckles appear across her nose and cheeks.

She is willowy thin: and might look a little underweight to some, but that's how she grew, not due to any other reasons.  It's a physical trait common amongst Argalls.  At 5'6, she is neither tall nor short, but her perfect posture gives her the appearance of more height.

Her fashion sense is very easy: flowing, natural colours, nothing overly fussy, though this may need to change for the city.

Play By: Gemma Ward

Personality  At first, Ailish might appear difficult to know.  She's very discreet about her own thoughts and feelings, through generally affable to everyone.  Even being the fourth daughter, Ailish is very self confident: the type that does not need to announce it because she could care less if others notice. 

Often overlooked in the larger family, she was comfortable with that, and in her own skin, choosing to find her own entertainments, although this meant having a great deal of freedom. 

Very honest, and loyal, Ailish can be a great ally, but of no use at all, if she finds the other person dishonest, or untrustworthy, even if it is better for playing politics.

Her only true frustrations come from a restriction of her freedom, and cruelty to people / animals, anything at all, really.

History
Ailish was the fifth child that came at a time when the Argall family was flourishing.  After the birth of the seventh Argall, times became more financially strapped, and thus they did without.  They had one tutor.  Children were put to work, or fostered out.  The family is desperate to hold onto their lower noble status and not sink further.  At the same time, the amoung of land they own will always give them a little influence.

Ailish was a free-range child.  As long as she attended her lessons and did her chores, she could do as she wished.  Really, it was an ideal situation for a child so interested in nature, but the hardships of an agricultural life meant that they sometimes did without. 

At 18, she overtook the south western portion of the land, and managing the growing, and fallow fields, to great success.  Moving to the city, she will be desperately homesick at times for the peace and quiet of the country.

In a rare thing, all seven children lived through to adulthood, making the provisions for each child, besides the two eldest, are nonexistent.  Ailish had little choice in moving to the city to become someone's wife.

Other
Favourite colour: green.
Pet Peeve: Rudeness to those of a lesser status.  The dislike of animals.
She is extremely religious.  She takes all religious ceremonies with all due reverence, and does not believe anything should be considered "more important" than the rites of being a Shain.

Roleplay Sample
"I have everything, mother."  If Ailish was the type, she would be frustrated as her mother fussed and fretted, double-checking the packing for her fourth daughter's move to the city.  The contract of betrothal having been signed, Ailish is now moving away from her home: a place she's never left for even a night, she knows this is a clean break. 

Instead of showing her nerves, she's taken a more practical approach.  Lists were made, items arrange, a new wardrobe, though skimpy, has been tailored.  Aillia Voss is from a much higher family, and her parents did not want their daughter to look like a pauper.  Then again, AIlish's interest in clothes hasn't had a chance to develop, given the limited options.  Even when meeting Melisandre for the first time, Ailish was wearing a retailored gown that was her eldest sister's.

Whatever Ailish leaves with, is all she's getting. There isn't any money left for her, as everything the family earns is plowed back into the estate, literally.
"Please do not refold that.  I've already made sure it will have as few creases as possible."  It's quiet but firm, and Ailish's mother pulls back her hand, leaving the linen shawl as it was originally packed.

Once the trunk is packed, Ailish picks up a small pot, with a Calmlan sprout.  It's the only part of the estate she's taking with her, and the family, in trying to make her as good a catch as possible, did not barter for her to take her pets.

Ailish understands the practicality of it, though it pains her to leave them.
