Donna Lorita deSiena, OSC

I am protégé to Mistress Alayne Nivern Nightwatch of the Shire of Nordenhal.

I am a proud member of Clan MacPharlain of the Highland Alliance.


Daughter of the richest banker in the city, living in Siena, Italy in 1275. I love to flaunt my family's wealth by showing it off on my person - jewels, the latest fashions imported from France or Poland, yards and yards of fabric in the skirts of my gowns, and the like. I'm a dabbler, because my attention and interests shift regularly. I know a little about a lot of things and a lot about a few things.
