Has absolutely no rhythm and is disappointed by it; adopted by the Dark Bards and has been gleefully wreaking havoc on unsuspecting passerby since.

Personal Imagery

Sparrows hold special meaning for Iriniia. For her, they symbolize adaptability, curiosity, productivity, creativity, joy in the simple things of life, and are fiercely protective of their flocks. They are also vindictive little buggers, and this delights her. Her colors are midnight blue, black, and silvery gray. Her scribal signature is a small, rotund black sparrow. Her metalwork signature is the same, with the addition of a black hand to represent her affiliation with and apprenticeship to Master Muin.

In Case of Court

Please notify Lady Iriniia's spouse, Lord Runi inn Irski; he is excellent at keeping secrets and will make sure she is present and presentable to the Crown and their Representatives. If possible, please also notify THL Shoshana Gryffyth or Baroness Mari Clock van Hoorne, close friends of Iriniia, and much better at making sure she is presentable than Lord Runi. Master Muin maqq Minain should be consulted and notified of any court appearances as well.
