.:Name:. Lady Elenora
.:Nick Name:. Nora (by her close friends and family)
.:Age:. 26| ~ • ~ | Appearance | ~ • ~ |
.:Physical Appearance:. Elenora is 5 foot 6 inches. She has bright blue eyes and pale white skin, which many people compliment her on. She has light brown hair which is naturally wavey, but with the help of her maid she keeps it curly (for public events, such as balls and ceremonies) and up in creative buns and weaves.
Most of the time she wears corseted dresses made by the finest silks, cotton and furs that Camelot and surrounding kingdoms have to offer. However, most of the time she prefers to wear light cotton embroidered dresses in private or when in closed quarters.
.:Portrayed by:. Sarah Bolger| ~ • ~ | Personality | ~ • ~ |
.:Personality:. Elenora is a gentle, friendly, kind-hearted woman. Growing up in Uther’s (and later Arthur’s) court as her father was a high ranking knight meant that she was very much privileged, giving her the opportunity to become friends with Arthur. Whilst watching her father train Arthur and the other knights she would watch, wishing she could learn how to fight as well. But alas it is not proper for a woman to participate in such activities.
Instead she decided to spend her time reading many books ranging from history to romance novels, which were banned for a young woman her age. Yet this would not stop her. She has a strong thirst for knowledge and likes to use it to help others whenever she can. Recently she has started to study healing techniques and her teacher has discovered that she is a natural at preparing brews and poultices for the sick.
.:Special Skills:. Elenora is a good listener, observant, intelligent and smart (she has a great memory, thus she learnt things every quickly), generous (always treats her maids with respect and kindness) and determined (she tries her hardest and never gives up). Elenora is also very accomplished at sewing and embroidery.
However, she also has weaknesses as well. She can be stubborn especially when she wants to participate in something that her gender prohibits her from doing. She can be a little too trusting, especially as she tends to see the best in people and not always notice when she is being manipulated although she is smart. Sometimes she can be quick witted and people (especially men) take offense to this, meaning she’s had to learn to keep that in check.| ~ • ~ | History | ~ • ~ |
.:Family:. Father: Sir Anthony
Mother: Lady Annabelle (deceased)
Sister: Lady Anne, 21 (deceased)
.:History:.Elenora is the eldest daughter of Sir Anthony and Lady Anabelle. She has a younger sister, Lady Anne with whom she is very close to. Her mother died after giving birth to her younger sibling after contracting a severe fever after giving birth. This meant that she had to grow up quite fast and became a mother figure to her younger sister (along with their governess).
Growing up, she was very much a book worm and spent most of the time (when she wasn’t trailing after her young sister who was constantly getting into many scrapes or sending time with her tutor) reading as many books as she could get her hands on. She had the tendency to be too quick witted for her tutor and was constantly being told off. But this didn’t stop her from using her knowledge to help the less privileged whenever she could.
Having grown up in court, she became friends with Prince (later King) Arthur, as her father was one of the main knights in charge of the Prince’s training. She was very happy when Arthur announced his engagement to Guinevère and approved as she knew what a kind hearted woman Gwen was (having had Gwen serve her on several occasions as her maid-servant when she was visiting the castle).
She was very happy when she discovered that her younger sister was to marry a nobleman from Gawant. Though she was sad to say goodbye to Anne, she wished her well as her husband could provide well for her. Unfortunately, not long after her sister and her fiancée were wed they both contradicted a deadly virus killing both of them, leaving both her father and herself devastated. Her father shut himself from everyone as his grief overtook him. Thus, leaving it up Elenora to manage the estate’s affairs, a challenge she welcomed though she too was grieving from the loss of her beloved sister.| ~ • ~ | Member Info | ~ • ~ |
