Description

The fiery red curls of her hair give credence to her blood that hails form the North and beyond. High cheekbones and soft jaw give her elegant dimples. Sparkling green eyes set off the soft crea of her skin with its dash of freckles. Her frame is lightly curved with a long slender neck and narrow shoulders but there is a lean strength beneath it all.

Her choice of dress are simple cuts that lean towards the more form fitting fashion of the Reach. She wears a riding gown in the reds and whites of Hightower in layers. The sleeves are slit to allow for free movement and aeration and all of this is set over by a fitted leather jerkin in deep grown. It hugs her form and carries a set of antlers embossed upon the upper back. To match an embossed belt of running stags tights at her middle. A hunting knife, a set of falconer's gloves and finally a few pouches are strung along it.

Biography

House Hightower
"We Light the Way."

Eiris Flowers was born in 103 A.C., on a brisk fall Day in Oldtown to Asten Hunt and Hanna, a smallfolk maid from the North.

….During a tournament House Manderly came south to participate, one of the knights brought his wife and she brought her maid, Hanna. That is when Asten Hunt fell madly in love at first sight. He had been a widower for several years and Hanna, won over by Asten's charms, stayed in Oldtown to be with him and continue their love affair. Despite the tanking of his reputation, Asten remained a minor nobleman who is the Master-of-the-Hunt for House Hightower. Whiel she stayed in Oldtown, Hanna practiced healing in the style of the Northerners and their Old Gods. They were loving parents to Eiris and childhood for her was filled with the teachings of the Old Gods and the New. She learned the ways of the herb and flower from her mother and her father taught her the finer details of the hunt and tracking. Since the family was poor she didn't have access to advanced education beyond her mother and father's teachings of their crafts nor did she have any real 'noble' upbringing. A few of her favorite things to do growing up were trekking prey in the wood and tending the gardens with her mother.

In 120 Eiris was swept along in a hunt for a monster boar that had been terrorizing the area. There was an accident during the trapping and an avalanche killed all of Ormund's men, gravely injured Ormund and crippled Eiris' foot when she rescued the Lord of Oldtown. She nursed him back to health, saved his life and after that life for her and her family changed rather immediately.

In 123 after a three-year wait, after her heroic deeds during the Death of Bristles, King Viserys accepted Asten Hunt's request to legitimize his daughter and Eris Flowers became Eiris Hunt.

Relationships

Hanna

Hanna

Mother

Mother is beyond wise and competent and if ever there was a woman deserving of station it would be her. I emulate her calm and presence of mind as much as I can. I love her dearly and beyond all reason I make certain she is content.

Asten Hunt

Asten Hunt

Father

Father is a generous and kind man with humor unlike any other. I could not have asked for a better man to call my own blood and it is to him my mother and I must constantly give thanks for he stands for us when the tide comes.

Lord Ormund Hightower

Lord Ormund Hightower

Lord of Oldtown

Perhaps I am young or foolish but I do not feel I am either whenever I am with him. I would risk all I am for him. Change and become the Lady that was lofted from her low position. All he must do is it ask it of me and I will follow. I only hope he does not change me so much I do not recognize myself anymore but love causes you to go to great lengths for those you treasure. They were recently wed in secret.

Lady Arana Lydden

Lady Arana Lydden

Lady

To say that they get along would be generous. They tolerate each other and mostly because Arana thinks it entirely impossible for Eiris to be a part of the Hightower family - bastard that she is.

Lynesse Hightower

Lynesse Hightower

Lady

It is unfortunate the state they are in currently and all because Eiris attempted to aid the young lady in her affair. The tension between them is strong and one Eiris regrets constantly.

Aegon II Targaryen

Aegon II Targaryen

Prince

She detests him. Entitled and indecent he will never be near her again unsupervised.

Arron

Arron

Guard

He has become he confidant, her personal guard and is like a brother she never had. Arron is one of the few people outside of her family and Ormund she feels she can speak frankly with and sometimes even more so than some of the latter. She holds him in the greatest regard.

Roleplaying Hooks & Quirks

  • Falconry: Eiris has worked with the Master of the Hunt's birds since she was small.
  • Bastard Made Noble: Only recently has it been that Eiris was given the noble name of Hunt. The Queen herself brought the paper that made it so.
  • Loyal: Eiris is unfailingly loyal and truthful. Probably to a fault sometimes.
  • Hesitant: She is yet unsure ofherself and her new position.
