Titles: Baroness Consort of Duskshire

Description: Hers is a barely mature beauty, only just reaching her mid-years, she still clings to youth's glory. Wide blue eyes the color of a summer sea are framed in thick lashes, only the barest hint of laugh lines crinkling the corners. Her mouth is generous, expressive, quick with a smile, sometimes pinched in an affectionately judgemental purse. She is of average height and built on a lean, but womanly frame. She is, in a word, sweet, projecting a sense of good-spirited fun that builds upon her otherwise youthful charm.

Personality: Margerie Keaton is a woman who wants nothing more than to experience all of the joys that life has to offer. Drinking, eating, dancing, conversations with fascinating people -- she is the very soul of an Arxian socialite. While she might be, only barely, into her middle years, she has all the vivacious energy and drive of a woman a decade younger. The only remnants from her time as Countess Keaton is a lingering inability to completely cut the apron strings with her nephew, Kael. She spent almost twenty years as countess, and she knows how things work most smoothly. So if she chimes in with advice every now and again, well.... that's just being a good Aunt.

Background: Margerie Keaton was a free-spirited child. It was thought that she would be one of those Keatons that eschewed the safe walls of Keaton Keep and lived in the wilds with their hounds and a few boon companions seeing to the land and keeping order and peace amongst the villages. But that level of roughing it never appealed to Margerie either. It was freedom she sought, independance with the benefits of wealth and a noble name. As a second daughter, she was nearly guarenteed an at least comfortable existance, and in truth, she was alright with that.

Then her elder sister Nadine fell in love with the wrong man. A horrible, lying and deceitful man. Before being engaged, Nadine threw caution to the wind and became pregnant. The details of what happened between Nadine and her lover aren't common knowledge, and even Margerie has been left to guess. Nadine's son was supposedly born stillborn and her sister, growing ever more despondant and depressed, took a knife to her own throat and died. Margerie's days of liesure were over.

She spent the next twenty years as Countess of Oakhaven. She was married off, had a daughter, the days a seemingly endless parade of reports, requests, demands, delegations... it was *awful*. When news came to her that Nadine's child was still alive she was overjoyed. Bringing hm to the Keep and seeing him trained to take his rightful place was an immense relief. Knowing that there may be some whispers and doubts regarding his legitimacy and knowing that the best way to ensure his line -- their line -- continued would be to get his a noble heir of his own. Margerie cast a net and found an extremely distant and mostly forgotten branch of the Wyrmguard family looking to regain significance through marrying off their last daughter. They were difficult negotiations, but it ensured a happy future for all. Right?

The marriage carried out, Margerie was getting ready to settle into a life of liesure when her husband Harlow passed away. The memories are too sharp and she's decided to follow her nephew Kael to Arx, letting her younger brother Eaton to watch after the family home.

Relationship Summary

  • Skye - We've suffered at the hands of the same family. Unfortunately it's hers.

  • Family:
  • Kael - Long lost nephew, source of my freedom
  • Reigna - Niece by arrangement and by affection

  • Veronica - Cousin and Sword of Oakhaven. Relentless and Respected
  • Jaerith - Nephew and source of the occasional heart palpitations of anxiety
  • Amari - Yes, technically a cousin, but might as well be a niece. She has been bold in seeking her own path, she has been dutiful in returning to the family fold.
  • Aric - Oh look! A cousin (though called nephew) to add to the contingent of those that will try to give Auntie grey hair and headaches!
  • Adalyn - My bold and engaging step-daughter.
  • Kedehern - Shae's spouse, father of my grandchildren, my charming son-in-law.
  • Vitalis - Adalyn's spouse - a surprising and welcome addition to Clement House.
  • Apollo - No single word defines Apollo's role in my life, but he is as dear to me as any blood relation.
  • Rohran - My nephew who deserves more than I had assigned him.

  • Oathlands:
  • Arn - 20 years ago: Reason to hide in quaking terror at a conclave. Now: More relatably intimidating
  • Philippe - Possily the most dour and serious part of Oathlands meetings over the last 20 years. Good at his job.

  • Acquaintance:
  • Cassandra - I admire that she took the choice that suited her. And perhaps a bit envious. Lorraine's eldest
  • Percephon - The teacher in passing. I wonder what's on his mind...
  • Alis - Charitable, a lively mind and sense of humor. Always a comfort to have at an event.
  • Nicia - My Duchess, wielding marriage like an ax that might fall at any moment. Might keep me on my toes.
  • Derovai - Aunt Superior's occasional pressure headache
  • Khanne - A dear friend of my niece's, well on her way to becoming one of my own
  • Victoria - So this is what the Thraxian version of an Auntie Superior is like!
  • Thesarin - One of Twainfort's leaders. There is something about his steadiness I admire. Good family man.
  • Orazio - A man of faith and wisdom to be respected and learned from. Easy to talk with.
  • Aleksei - Archlector of the First Choice, Blessed, teacher in the ways of Skald and faith
  • Vayne - Archlector of the 13th. Someone to seek guidance from on some questions. Don't worry. Reflections are still alarming.
  • Victoria - A peer in the Auntie contingent. A bit rigid, what with that Thraxian upbringing, but she knows what family means.

  • Spouse:
  • Harlow (Rip) - Provided an heir
  • Norwood - Still a most honorable and sometimes surprising idiot, but now he is my very romantic idiot.

  • Friend:
  • Cristoph - Duke. Best friend's son. Nephew's best friend. These things come full circle.
  • Aeryn - My mini-me, if hopped up on a lot of honey and minus about twenty years of responsibility. My best friend's youngest.
  • Jael - Lorraine's daughter and force of nature. Always a potential partner in mischief.
  • Tessa - The dangerously mischievous Lady Moore. Poacher of the older gentlemen dating pool
  • Eiran - Probably the source of Margerie's fourth grey hair - Laurent family
  • Gerrick - A longtime personal guard and companion in curiosity, Gerrick has been a loyal (if perplexing) friend.

  • Patron:
  • Cassandra - Chose her path and walked it with purpose. Sees the best in me, having met me at my worst.
  • Name Summary
    Darren She wears the mantle of Baroness gracefully. I think it suits her.
    Giada These are difficult times for everyone, but I think the Baroness has the right idea. Listening is the beginning of all wisdom.
    Mabelle There is something about her that inspires calm. Perhaps its her warmth and inned strength and the things she had experienced.
    Mattheu Possibly a good song to add in where she's one of the few to hold the potato and not be spit up on
    Petra This old bird has the same feathers I do. Time for some meddling auntie shenanigans.
    Vitalis I'm not entirely sure what we would have done without her. I did not grow up with a mother, I've come to see her as one.
