Now this is my kind of fun! I'd be overjoyed to play!
You said "any other creatures welcome." Does that scope apply to fae creatures, or is that too complicated?
In the interests of rapidly impending awesome role-play, I'll cast a skelly here. You can confirm or deny as you please.
Mag McSheridon - Her dancing green eyes are framed by deep scarlet hair, tied tightly back in intricate braids. She speaks slowly and articulately around her lords and ladies, mostly to hide the fast talking and thickly accented Irish voice she uses around friends.
Some years ago, she had been sent from a village near Tara to reside with a friend in Wales. However, this friend has proven to be the worst sort of person, and she had fled to England Proper to get away. Through luck, and a little help, she meandered through various tasks until she was allowed to be a servant at the castle.
A woman of strange and many talents, she has a gift for music, making and mending clothes, polishing metals, crafting wooden toys, and tending horses. The talk among the servants is that she can't cook, but this is only half true. Rather, she is a witch, who fabricated that perception so she won't be tempted to 'work' while in the kitchen. Obstinately devoted to cleaning and to her superstitions, her work is usually spotless except for a dish of cream and a wreath of primroses somewhere: libations to her all important faerie companions. She seems very loyal to her lords and ladies, but there is obviously more to her than that.
