(OC this is just a re-work on my previous concept to avoid using a cannon character,
freeing the cannon characters to be used by the storyteller for plot related reasons)Name:
Lady Clayra LannisterTitle:
Arrogant. She has enough power to feel no need to impress anyone, its everyone elses job to impress her.
(All know the kind). So used to privileged station she believes no action or behavior of hers that could upset others should ever be a topic of improvement. In her mind her own actions defines what is right.Background
Direct Cousin of Cersei, Clayra grew up where talk of political maneuverings were common topics at almost
all family occasions. The duchess liased with Cersei more often than others via raven messages on topics of mutual interest which would shame the family if known publicly. Letting the males of the family see to military and naval matters still left much to do to ensure Lannister's rightful place overruling all of the civilized world, dealings that quickly involved what no sane fool should dabble in. Although most in the family are corrupted by power, such is true for many noble families, however if there was one that truly was responsible for the darkest of taints on the souls of such it would be Duchess Clayra Lannisiter. Gold bought services to fathom those knowing of rituals that could give advantages other families could never match. Benefits which could be seen at a glance, physical obvious superiority to what she believed was any other family breathing.
Such blessings needed to match boons true dragon-blood had always claimed, in her mind one power that was always relevant was that of beauty, knowing this promises from witches fueled her dreams of perpetual youth and forever improved physical traits at a cost which more importantly could be imposed unwillingly on others. Dark witches speaking of such spoke in her ears more often than other voices until their thoughts soon constantly bathed her own. To improve the insatiable craving of her own vanity, to starve off the effects of time and instill such benefits for her linage forever, the witches demanded that the dark spirits be appeased, thoughts she readily agreed to, over time her heart began to grow cold. For not only did the witches insist the extreme choices for such a linage, but to fuel physical perfection curses of the corruption of others love began to be woven by their chanting, and designed debasement by her own hand befell all those who learned too much of her dealings. Perversion of love and the sexual natures of others including herself was the price she gladly paid, along with her sanity. Proof that the dark rituals worked only increased Clayra's depth of depravity, ones which increasingly became more extreme as well as the measures required to keep them secret.
