Lady Leonora Malespero
Well, isn't that just the most /delicious/ gossip, darling?
Description: This woman's pallor and slender frame suggest a life lived indoors, a state of health that could be better. Still, her green eyes are bright with enthusiasm, her pale lips often curved into an amused or welcoming smile, and her personality -- her enthusiasm for life -- seem far larger than her slight frame should contain.
Personality: Though her health often keeps her secluded, when Leonora makes her way into social gatherings, she often seems rather outgoing and prone to seize life and try to live it to the fullest. She'll dance with anyone who offers, laugh at all the jokes, and gather all the gossip she can. After all, life is hardly a permanent state, as this noblewoman knows all too well.
Background: A member of one of the lesser houses of the Lyceum, Leonora was a sickly young woman. Often bed-ridden and secluded, the noblewoman lived predominantly through books and the vicarious tales of her friends who came to visit on occasion. Yearning for a chance to be a part of the society she so often heard of, she saved all her allowance and paid an old woman -- a traveling alchemist -- in hopes of a miracle cure. The alchemist provided a potion for her, and soon Leonora found her strength increasing. While she never will be fully hale and hearty, the potion she was given gave her a new lease on life. And so Micaela decided to join the lands with those of House Malespero, Leonora came along as well, hoping to make a new life within the capital city of Arx.
As for the alchemist who had so helped her? Though she's searched, Leonora has found no sign of the woman.
