Lady Aaradyn Ghyoot - sometimes seen as Betryse Aaradyn Ghyoot (but not to those who know her); a scribe, a voice herald and one who likes to dance, often seen in the company of musicians. If you can't find her helping with Court, look for her at the thrown weapons range.

Pronounced Air-ah-din Ghee-o (the t is silent), her name is Flemish, her last name specifically is a period spelling of her maternal grandmother's maiden name.

Aaradyn became Apprenticed to Mistress Eloise of Coulter just before the plague struck our lands and but has been studying through the aether under Eloise’s guidance. As Eloise says: “if you find fault with her, take it to her - she is an adult. If you find praise for her, bring it to us both.”

Fun story... Aaradyn's name wasn't always this documentable! It started life as the product of a Jedi Name Generator online. After hanging out with dancers for a few years she learned of a dance with her name (spelled MUCH differently) and went hunting... and found her grandmother's maiden name in the rolls! That led her to a spelling for Aaradyn in the same rolls, and thus her name passed. (with a first name, because those are both last names, but everyone knows her as Aaradyn)


Aaradyn is like many French women in the 1300's - she has a father that travels, a mother who has the house easily in hand and sees to the education of her children, and two older siblings who like to think they have run of the place. All this leaves her free to pass the time through learning dance, painting, sewing, and reading.
