The wife of Lothaire
Oriane is Lothaire’s wife of seven years, a refined young woman from a very respectable Orlesian family. Her marriage to Lothaire was arranged by her mother and his father, and she is very happy with her husband and her duties overseeing his household at Tourrin. Her only grief is that their union has not yet produced any offspring. Oriane regards this as her personal failure and has even asked Lothaire to put her aside and find a wife capable of providing him with an heir, but Lothaire was so horrified by this idea that she has not raised it again. It has put a strain on their relationship which has redoubled now that they are forcibly separated.
