Diplomacy is the art of letting someone else have your way.
Description: Loralyndra is of somewhat average height and build, standing 6'1". She is in constant motion when she's able to be, as though she was constantly excited by wherever she might go and do next. She has dark brown skin and long black hair, which is usually tied back with a leather thong of some kind. Her green eyes dart from people to interesting sights, always moving.
Personality: Loralyndra is constantly active - not fidgety, but active. She cannot stand remaining in one place for very long, and so when she's required to be still, all that energy becomes mental, and verbal. Her greatest love is culture - the music, art, fashion, food, traditions, etc - of others, and is frequently seen trying something new, if only for the experience of something new. Loralyndra has a keen mind when dealing with people, which helps her diplomatic efforts. She is generally in a good mood, especially when she can chase after whatever has caught her attention, unfettered.
Background: Loralyndra was never disposed toward combat - she found little thrill in martial matters. Instead, Loralyndra embraced vibrant cultural exchanges, and deftly navigated interpersonal conflicts, even from an early age. Her ability to find common ground with opponents, even when there were deep differences between them, were noticed, and she began to receive more formal training in the arts of diplomacy. The war, she felt, was a breakdown of diplomacy, one that she laments even to this day.
There is virtually nothing Loralyndra will not try once. Her penchant for exploration - so readily apparent within her family - is demonstrated in her unrelenting zest for life, and for learning about the way other people live. In negotiations, she's proven to be an able diplomat. In life, a whirlwind of energy and passion.
