Amelia "Amy" Rossana l'Arishane
Amelia stands at about 5’8" with a build fit for combat, but betrayingly slender. Her long blonde hair is often tied back behind her at her neckline, and her turquoise eyes are almost always encircled in black, either due to mascara (sp?) she wears, or from the soot of battle or work.

After much harassment, she finally agreed to get to know him, and found that she had become smitten with his ability to maintain an honorable nature while not betraying his own comfort with himself. It was not long after that they were married.

She resolved that she would avenge her lover’s death any way she could, though, as a woman, she was not able to join the Arkashian ranks. However, on a visit to Jack’s father, she encountered a situation that would change her circumstances quite drastically…
