Gnothi? I was planning on having my character take in a slave girl once it's made legal again. She's going to need someone she can trust, who she finds appealing, to indulge her deviant impulses with.
Okay, so Maeryn's marriage would have been Matrilineal, then. I'm making her husband a random Lannister cousin, you know, the type Cersei would fuck when Jamie was away. She would make all the real decisions and keep a firm hold of her house, but allow her husband to serve as a figurehead and mouthpiece for herself. It helps that he was probably about 14 when they married, and she's easily five years older. So, she's now 25 and he's 20.
