And I can’t take it back, I can’t unpack the baggage you left. What am I now? What am I now? What if I’m someone I don’t want around?

“Some may call me arrogant for saying this. Some may even scoff in my direction if they read this. I don’t care. Not anymore. At this point, my life’s been spiraling up and up, and yet one issue keeps bugging me; My Da’s always busy with Littles - my younger sister. Dora. Dora this, Dora that. Fetch me the dirk, Dora, take my meal away. He’s training her as a male heir, and they seem to get one another. But I - where do I fit in this? Wil l be under Ma’s wing forever? Oh, about Ma; Gryffin, my Da, says Ma will pay everything off, Ma will leave the good heritage, eh. Nah. I know for sure she won’t. We’ve learned one another’s games, and I’m too ‘slaggish’ for her to keep around. As a handmaid, even.
Aye. My Ma called me slaggish for… Things, though she still loves me more than Da ever did. For what I can see, at least. What I’m truly afraid of is, Gran’da’s caught a bad dose. He’s coughing his lungs out, blood and all. If he dies, Da takes the Chancellor’s seat and drives me out of their whole game. I die. I don’t want to die. And I was supposed to be cherished! I was supposed to become the Chancellor! The Underbelly’s mine. Eurobloc is mine. By birthright and talent. I’ve many more talents than this she-wolf of a sis does, and yet Da refuses to recognize me. Because I wasn’t a man. He can’t see me, he pretends he doesn’t on every occasion.
Oh, he’ll see.
I know I’m bitter, but why bother? Why try to change for someone that doesn’t give that back? I know a fella that does. He may be the enemy of Da’s, but he’s at least less arrogant than the Gryphons were. And Gryphons now? They’re meek, pitiful. You know, in a place where I’m from, a clan name means everything. I’m Sinead Sandiland, and I’ll make sure the Alkonost is a name that’ll leave bright, bleeding gashes on Codburgh and beyond. Fear the Sandilands’ name, for the Gryphons shall rise again!”
Well, there’s another aesthetic board for a big lady with a bigger family name. Sinead’s a modern-day noblewoman and a mobster in her prime. Perhaps she’ll even become one of the key antagonists for the story. Who knows! But oh, it’s always exciting for me to write ‘character letters’ like that. They help design a character better, honestly so. Feedback, reblogs and likes are really appreciated, and thank you for reading if you have.

Timothy Jewell has always been a rambunctious boy who took every opportunity he could to sneak out and cause trouble. After a certain point even his own mother gave up scolding him when he skipped lessons. Of course it was his aunt who figured out how to trick him into learning with games.
And of course nobody was surprised when the day finally came and an angry father showed up claiming Timothy had knocked up his son and demanded a marriage. It took a bit of prodding from his sister but as he always does Timothy spun the situation into something positive and agreed.

Cecilia Jewell was, impossibly, born with some magic. Had she been born anywhere but Maruss, a country naturally barren of it, she probably would have been a powerful sorcerer but as it is she is capable of a small amount of divination and illusion magic.
She is also the first child to actively harbor resentment for her mother. Porcia was born blind, a fact that sent her mother into a rage when she couldn’t find a ‘reason’ for it. She has been leashed to the Jewell estate since childhood despite being very capable of handling herself. But being metaphorically locked in a tower has allowed her time to build on her powers and she can feel a shift in the wind.
