The Scarrows of the Heart’s Great Welkin (organization)
Alyphyr was born to a lower landowner in TBD; lower in both class and morals, The family sold her as a secret child bride (at the age of eight) into a better-positioned family in TBD/CAMPAIGN SEAT. She quickly learned to forget her old life, and concentrated herself to acquiring the skills of an upwardly-aspiring merchant daughter. Her best friend and confidant from this period was her now-brother Memnestine, a carefree and beautiful youth who was the envy and darling of all who met him but ho had a special bond with his new sister.
The bond was deepened when, one day during the Festival of the Augur Knife, an inebriated Count Augrainne began to take advances on her brother in an increasingly-aggressive fashion, culminating in that worthy pinning her brother to a lawn chair and pulling at his liederhosen. A terrified Alyphyr grabbed her new father’s hunting bow and shot the Count in the rear padding, saving her brother’s honour. Her father, learning of the deed, presented her with the bow, which she treasured forever hence.
Love of a more amorous sort was soon to follow for the now-thirteen year old, who met the local brava Guillifierre at the many cotillions she was required to participate in. Guillifierre was a rake inasmuch as a fourteen-year-old girl can be one, and she left a trail of devastated boys and girls in her wake. But somehow the practical and hardy Alyphyr appealed to the girl, and they quickly proceeded from fast friends to lovers. When Alyphyr’s majority arrived at age 16, Guillifierre’s influential father declared them a match, and the marriage was soon to be celebrated. Guillifierre rose in the ranks of the Sable Guard, whilst Alyphyr managed the household and produced stunning and appropriate social events that were the great ticket in that provincial town. On the side, Guillifierre trained her young wife in the use of the sword and bow; her early experience had proven to Alyphyr the importance of martial strength.
All would have been well, but the impetuous Guillifierre ran afoul of the local gentry, who conspired to have her accused of heresy. In a dramatic scene, the brava (realizing there was no escape, and desperate to protect her young wife) actually took her sword and stabbed Alyphyr in the arm, who then fell three storeys into a moat, barely surviving. Guillifierre was dragged to jail, and the disgraced Alyphyr fled to the city’s underbelly to recover and recoup.
Alyphyr has been growing in strength, waiting for the moment when she can brave the dungeons to rescue her love. In the meantime, she works as she can in the interest of those who are pinned down by social mores, as she was when she had any position to speak of.
