Character history:

Daera was born in Kandor, the first child to her parents-both members of the Guild of Illuminators. Her mother, a low-level illuminator whom Daera was very close with, taught her everything she knew about her occupation and quickly found that Daera had a rare skill and unnatural innate abilities. After Daera’s two younger brothers were born, their father was rarely around as he was always off selling his wares and making performances. He sent home money to his family to keep them going and whenever he came home they had a grand feast and celebration. Daera’s mother continued to cultivate Daera’s great skill with illuminations, something that her little brothers did not possess to quite the same level. However, Daera’s mother fell ill when Daera was 15 and her brothers were 9 and 12 respectively. Though Daera continued to learn illuminations from her mother, she increasingly began to make her own creations, starting with little improvements on conventional illuminations and progressing to completely new innovations when she had spare time from looking after her mother and her little brothers. Once Daera created a set of fully developed, completely new innovations, her father returned and the decision was made that he would stay home and look after the family in Kandor while Daera made the journey to the Tanchico Chapterhouse to learn and create in a proper Illuminator’s environment.

On her 17th birthday, Daera began her journey to Tanchico. She travelled with great speed directly to the Chapterhouse, determined to do her parents proud and learn as much as she could from the Illuminators. Her inventions were immediately taken into the Illuminator’s repertoire and Daera was apprenticed to the Master Illuminator, who taught her for several years, up until Daera was the second to none but the Master Illuminator herself. During this time, she found herself missing her little brothers and began to care for the younger members of the Guild that lived in the vicinity of the Chapterhouse. A few men tried to catch her eye, but she quickly changed their minds with a drub over the head and often a violent threat of more.

With 20 years, Daera began to make trips out to demonstrate illuminations to the nobility. It was through several of these trips that through a lot of effort, she gained permission for the Illuminator’s to begin a Chapterhouse in Cairhien. She hurried home, and upon hearing the grand news, the Master Illuminator told Daera that she would be the one opening and building up the new Chapterhouse.

Since that day, when Daera was 23, she has been running the Cairhien Chapterhouse and the Cairhien sector of the Illuminator’s Guild. She took seven others with her and several young ones, but she was also granted the trust to go and seek out new members, should her numbers need significant boosting.

With her motherly nature, Daera quickly established herself in a teacher role and now the built the Cairhien Chapterhouse’s education facilities into the best in the Guild.

She has now been running the place for nearing ten years, happily teaching and inventing, looking after her entire Chapterhouse with her strict eye and sarcastic comments.

Everything seems fine, apart from this:

 

Personality: As the founder and mistress of the Illuminator’s Chapter House in Cairhrien, Daera is a hard-hearted, serious and sarcastic woman with a leader’s aura. Although she is only fairly young to run a Chapter house, Daera is very logical and intelligent with a creative streak and an appreciation for beautiful things/people that brings out her soft heart, rarely seen but for those who have earnt her hard-won trust. She is a mother figure to everybody, and disapproves of cursing, gambling and drinking, ensuring that these practices don’t find a way into her Chapterhouse.

 

She can't be a soft hearted mother figure, and then also be hard-hearted.

 

Also, a blonde Kandori?

Alrighty, changes are in blue...might make a bit more sense than the old oxymoron. :wink:

No blonde Kandori? Ok, I don't like blonde that much anyway. XD Can we have that changed to dark brown with sun-bleached streaks please?
