Countess of Serrenfael
Youth in Angharad
The middle of three sisters in the house of Angharad. Her father was the Earl of Angharad and her mother was the eldest daughter of the Angharad’s western-most sworn house, Rivios.
h3. Time at Court in Oirobos
Although her skill at embroidery was already well-known in Angharad, it was at court that Esther became known as The Fastest Needle in Rythos. Rumors that she was approached to use this skill as a means of secret communication between spies at court and her Angharad family have been unproved. It was proven, however, that she used this skill to communicate with the eldest son of her house’s rival, Pavay Korrin, who spent several seasons in Oirobos to finish his education.
Marriage to Korrin
Although the terms of their families’ agreement remains unknown, Esther Angharad became Countess Esther Angharad Korrin on the first day of Summer Waxing’s Maiden. Her family saw the couple off as the couple left for Serrenfael the next morning. The Angharad have had no public contact with Esther since.
Character and Interests
Esther Korrin always gets her way. She never threatens, throws tantrums, or even demands, but through her sweet and unassuming demeanor she can convince anyone to do anything for her, especially her children and servants. She is a superstitious woman who believes in omens of good and bad luck, and has trained her staff, which includes an older mage of diminishing powers, to manage her surroundings to keep something upsetting from crossing her line of sight.
Although she was born into the house of their greatest rivals, she is fiercely loyal to the Korrin Line. Over the past three decades, she has been working on a massive needlework tapestry detailing the history of the Korrin from the days of Rythandel to their recent mine expansions.
Relationship With Children
She has instilled her love and honor of Korrin in all of her children.
