Ajora XhoLoyalist or Separatist:
Neutral (will explain more below)House:
Xho of the Red Flower Vale (Summer Islands)Faction:
Prince Jalabhar Xho, Red Flower Vale - Father. Xala - Mother (whore).Personality:
Ajora has always been rather independent. Although living a somewhat privileged life in King's Landing with her father, they still did not hob-nob the same way other noble families did. Other than attending events for the King (Whether King Robert or King Joffery), they were often alone, and she did not feel the need to ask others to do simple tasks for her.
While somewhat introverted, she could be very charming and very lovely. Her father always told her she took after her mother in that respect, even able to make the foulest old man smile.
Like many of the people in the Summer Islands, she is very much laid back. Drinking and Sex where not seen as a bad or condemning thing for anyone in her eyes, whether noble blood or peasant. She had no problems stopping and having a long conversation with a common person, in fact, she believed that's how you met the most interesting people.
She has a bit of a fiery spirit, very much interested in the ways of war and fighting. She had always thought if she'd been born a man, she may have made a good soldier. Along with her love of archery, she'd always been amazed by sword battles. The sound of the metal, and the skill it took to handle one. She was the type of girl who would fight her assailants no matter the costs, because there was no way she was going down without a fight.Equipment:
- Goldenheart Bow - Given to her on her 14th name day. Made from the rich, golden wood of the Goldenheart tree. Beautifully curved, and sturdy, with feather woodwork carved along either side.
- Summer Island feather cape - Given to her by her father, made of vibrant, lush, multi-colored feathers. The fullest, and prettiest feathers decorate her shoulders, almost appearing to her her wings, while long feathers trail down to the middle of her back. The feathers come from a variety of exotic birds, all in bright shades of red, blue, yellow, orange, green, and purple.
More to comeSkills: Archery, Fishing, Sewing.Origins/History:
Not many noble men would take in a child born of a whore, but, for those from the Summer Islands, whore's were seen as respectible figures. Upon his arrival at Kings Landing, Jalahbar Xho met a beautiful Summer Isle whore by the name of Xala. Months later, Ajora was born, though her mother later died from problems after-birthing. Jalahbar took Ajora in and raised her as a princess, with hopes that one day he'd be able to return to his home with the new Princess of the Red Flower Vale.
From a very young age, she was trained to use a bow. It is tradition, and seen as an art form, as well as a weapon in war in the Summer Islands. Her father also taught her to fish, seeing as fishing is a big part of what keeps the people in the Summer Islands fed and well. She spends a fair amount of time at the docks, meeting the Summer Island merchants, and often times helping where she is needed. It made her feel closer to her home.
She remains in King's Landing with her exiled father, along with his continued hope that the very may help him reclaim the Summer Islands once again. However, though she also wishes for the same, she does not completely trust the royal family. Although much of the things she has heard are simply rumors, there is no denying that things are rocky. She is also convinced the King does not care about the Summer Islands. She does not raised her voice in the matter, though, because living in King's Landing is better than not having anywhere to be at all.
(Sorry if this seems scattered. I have a feeling I'll be cleaning this up and adding more to it as it comes to me.)
