A Game of Thrunes
A romantic poet who performs under the name Cisne.
Performing under the stage name Cisne, Alaria is gaining renown throughout Kintargo for her romantic poetry. She has long blonde hair, dresses in colourful but fashionable clothes, and has a voice to melt hearts. She can also be rather boisterous at times, especially after a drink or two; during these moments her poetry becomes more salacious, reflecting the dock-side culture she grew up in.
Alaria was raised in Yolubilis Harbour and started singing for meals at an early age. The locals recognised her talent and sponsored her board at Lady Docur’s School for Girls. Although she never graduated she became famous within the school for her poetry, both romantic and lewd; it is rumoured she was expelled for the latter.
Alaria has been a friendly rival to Pavo for several years. Although she has yet to perform at the Opera House like he, in recent months her fame has been spreading at a quicker pace. Though Pavo doesn’t doubt her ability, he can’t help but think she has friends in high places who are helping along her career.
Alaria was arrested for writing subversive texts under the name of the Poison Pen. She was sentenced to excruciation and slavery, but the Children of the Ash rescued her from under the nose of the authorities.
