Crown Princess Leda Serannar
Empathy nurtures wisdom.
Description: Willowy, and slightly on the taller side, Leda is a fine boned woman. Marked by her golden blond locks, she wears it long hanging to the middle of her back in the rare braid or loose. There is a tone to her figure from working in fields and gardens with a light tan to her skin from being outdoors. Her face is set with high cheek bones and a narrow chin. Blue eyes are framed under full lashes that give her from time to time a dreamy expression. A small, pert nose sits over an expressive mouth with a fuller bottom lip than upper.
Personality: Patience is the key to Leda's approach to life. She never quite seems in a rush to do anything. Not out of laziness, by any means, but more out of the desire to experience life and all it has to offer, every moment at a time just as it passes. She is a quiet listener and an understanding presence. To her, there is nothing that breaks that can't be restored again. She is a peacekeeper and a respected advisor to all who are willing to listen in return.
Background: The only daughter of the Lorandi King, Leda knows she was born into privilege. Her father Rhistel was beloved and respected by his people and her mother was a shining example of the grace and dignity that the Lorandi are known for. She and her brother Arminel grew up nearly inseparable. Leaning on one another, learning from each other. He was taught to lead, and she was taught to support. Between the two of them, they were unstoppable as a duo. Not long after she grew in to adulthood, her Mother was blessed by Brundir to take care of a third soul, naming him Aurri. Leda loved him from the moment he came in to this world.
When the Host arrived and her father took up arms to meet them in battle during the Eradication War, she kisses him on the forehead and wished him well on his crusade. She had no idea that would be the last time they would speak. The devastation that followed that war, and the crowning of her brother, turned Leda's world upside down. She could feel the world changing rapidly for the first time in her life. Luckily, her mother was there to help them and to act as a guide as the next generation of Lorandi leadership took their place. She agreed with Arminel when he finally made the call to join Ithiriel Elexia and leave for Aarandor. That decision would be her last time to offer Leda and Arminel her wisdom, and she perished on the journey across the sea.
Now that they have settled in Torendaar, Leda finds it is her duty to be the listener, the patient diplomat and aide to her brother's rule. She is also a caring figure to her younger brother's development, hoping to set him on the best possible course in life. Like so many who had made the journey, she set aside her despairs and replaced them with hope for a brighter future. She has planted gardens and tends them regularly, all the while giving thanks to Gala for the gifts this new world brings them.
