Physical Features

Dark blonde hair that is streaked with sun whitened strands cut in a layered style that allows the subtle curls to frame a face that is striking, her hair is currently swept up in a sleek coil, the heavy weight of her hair pinned in place and held with a pair of gold edged combs. The play of light and shadows accenting the strong bone structure and deeply set eyes that hold more than a hint of amusement and sublte challenge, slender eyebrows arch in a subtle curve over pale blue eyes that are framed by nearly invisible eyelashes. Full lips are set in a straight line beneath a rather noteworthy nose, a nose that would have been patrician at some point in the distant past but has been broken and reset a few times which lends her profile a bit of a rough but still elegant line. Her delicate jaw line compliments her heart shaped face and sun warmed complexion. At 5'2" she has a wiry and lean build that is only softened by the gentle curves at hip and chest, she is lean waisted and long legged, the sure strength of her hands and shoulders suggest athleticism instead of delicate grace. A slender band of white gold, intricately edged, encircles her left ring finger, one half of a matched set. A delicate metal choker rests around the base of her neck, small but fine gems catch the light, the clasp hidden by the fall of her pale hair.

Her attire is elegant in it's simplicity, sleekly tailored to accentuate her slender and wiry build without edging the line into fashion faux pas. The gown that she's wearing, a deep flawless obsidian edged with fine seams of gold, is made of a light weight brocade that flows gently around her feminine form. The bodice of the gown curves gently along her shoulders to dip to a subtle 'V' at it's lowest point over the center of her chest. A pin shaped into the profile of a stags head is tucked in place along the edge of her gown along her left shoulder. The bodice is delicately embroidered and the gown is laced tight along either side of her chest, accenting the lean length of her waist before the subtle flare of her hips. The sleeves of her gown rest along her upper arms, the wide cuffs folded back to reveal the intricate but exquisitely patterned embroidery worked in gold entwined with brown, the same embroidery edging the bodice, the seams of her gown and in wide panels along the hem. A pair of soft leather boots are worn with her gown, the boots adding several inches to her height.
