Kyra ThennFull Name:
Lady Kyra ThennOccupation:
Heir to House ThennHouse:
Though this is now a distant memory, House Thenn assumed their current role of Lords of Karhold at a time of great turmoil. Lord Commander Jon Snow himself arranged the marriage with Alys Karstark that made the former Magnar of Thenn, Sigorn the newly minted Lord of House Thenn. His goal was to prevent the murder of young Alys at the hands of her great-uncle Arnolf, who wanted to put his own son forward as the new Lord of the Karhold. This drama put an end to 1000 years of Karstark rule at the Karhold. By the time Kyra was born, House Thenn had been ruling for near four decades and what had once seemed like a tenuous grasp on their power was now a solid foundation.
Kyra had been twelve years old when Lord Sigorn had passed away and her father Torrhen had become the new Lord. Not much had changed, partly because Torrhen Thenn was not the kind of man to rock the boat and partly because he still heeded the council of his mother, Alys Karstark. The wily old woman still had much of the strength and smarts she had displayed in her youth and she made sure that her son did not stray too much from the firm yet simple way in which Sigorn had ruled.
Kyra herself has studied under her Septa as well as their Maester. From an early age she had a knack for reading, so much so that the Karhold now has a very impressive library, thanks to Torrhen’s largesse when it comes to indulging in his daughters whims and Kyra’s thirst for any tome she can get her hands on. She is less interested in courtly etiquette and whenever she isn’t found with her nose in the books, she is likely to be in the stables, tending to one of her horses – in spite of the stablehands meek protest – or out riding. Her sister Arsa is more of a little lady who dreams of court life in King’s Landing and a dream wedding that the smallfolk would talk about decades later. Family Connections:
Lord Torrhen Thenn – Father – Lord of House Thenn – Born 304 AC
Lady Alys Karstark – Grandmother – Born 284 AC
Lady Margaret Thenn – Aunt – Born 306 AC
Lady Arsa Thenn – Younger sister – Born 345 ACAppearance:
Whether it is a product of her upbringing or just an innate trait of her personality, Kyra is the kind of person who never gets too high or low in terms of her passions. She was somewhat bookish as a child, though there were a few outdoors activities she still quite enjoyed, like horse-back riding and falconry. She is very close to her family, but especially to her grandmother and her younger sister.
As a well-educated and well-read young woman, Kyra’s biggest flaw is a mistaken belief that she knows more than most people. She still has to learn that wisdom is earned and not all knowledge can be found inside of thick tomes. She is also resentful towards her father’s insistence on her getting married, exceedingly enjoying the position of power and privilege she enjoys at Karhold.Aspirations and Goals
