– Cerenna had long, eventful life behind her, was everywhere and experienced everything so nothing really can surprise her.
– spending all her life on a court, she knows what to do to achieve her goals and has a wide spy network, which gathers information for her.Persuasion
– so strong-willed as she is, Cerenna doesn’t have troubles with convincing people. A mixture of truth, lies and sometimes subtle intimidates can make wonders.Histrionics
– when she needs to, she can act as a helpless geezer and kindly granny. On the other side, Cerenna controls her facial expression, so others have serious troubles to guess, what she is thinking now.Weaknesses:
Being an old lady, Cerenna isn’t now so physically fit as she was in her youth. When it comes to the fight, she is practically defenseless. The Scarlet Widow isn’t very familiar with military – she has people who do this for her. She is also sometimes easy to irritate and lacks patience towards stupidity and incompetence. With troubles with accepting criticism and very little sense of humor, she could be seen as a grumpy hag. Cerenna has also tendencies to ignore others feelings if she only can to achieve her goals. One little peculiarity – she hates having her hands dirty and cleans them very often or wears gloves.Personality:
Cerenna is an authoritarian of the Lannister House. She knows everything about what’s going on in the Westerworlds. Whole her life is devoted to the one thing – making her family the greatest power in the whole Seven Systems. To achieve this goal she won’t avoid before doing necessaries, even if that hurts her relatives. Though, she loves her family, even while she can’t express this genuine. She is proud, but also very pragmatic and sometimes even cruel. As a true Lannister, Cerenna always pays her debts. Those who failed or betrayed her, have to meet with her revenge, but on the other side, she is very protective and generous for those, who pleased her.History:
As it went among Lannisters, at the age of 18, Cerenna had to marry her cousin, Lucion, to preserve purity (and continuation) of the House. They were rather successful pair – mostly because the future Lord learnt quickly to trust his wife, as much smarter, though being only a woman. After two years, Cerenna gave birth to Tygett, but soon it was clear, that he hadn’t inherited intellect after mother. Saying that she was disappointed was like saying nothing – the son appeared to be her greatest failure. To her further frustration, after serious illness, she became unable bear more children.
Times of reigns of Cerenna and Lucion were assumed to be the greatest years of Lannister’s history. Sadly, the old Lord died in 268 AL due to a massive infarct. Tygett expected that his mother would leave in shadow as a modest widow, giving him a free rein. Furious Cerenna didn’t even think about, but she had to retreat – at least in public. Instead she devoted herself to her grandchildren education, hoping that one of them would make a proper heir of the House – skilled enough to bring Lannisters on the position they’d always deserved. Personal motto: 'I’ll make our House the greatest – you want it or not.
