Vincit Omnia Pertinax Virtus | Stubborn Virtue Conquers All


"So raise a glass to turnings of the season
And watch it as it arcs towards the sun
And you must bear your neighbor's burden within reason
And your labors will be borne when all is done

Let the yolk fall from our shoulders
Don't carry it all, don't carry it all
We are all our hands and holders
Beneath this bold and brilliant sun"

Land


The Birch Farm is a family home originally shared between multiple PCs. As such, Igrainne does not actually own it, cannot sell it, and does not make any money from it. As of Fall XX, Igrainne has left for Caronis Keep and her mother and sister have moved to Prime. The house was given into the temporary possession of their neighbor, Rhys Harvey.

25 Acres in the County of Aslan - "Igrainne is bestowed all titles, privileges, entitlements and charter of said Title, which is to include 25 acres of land from the County of Aslan and the Title of Castellan of Caronis Keep, along with all responsibilities and tasks related to said title. Veleran's 200 acre estate is located on the southwestern edge of Lake Rynum right up against the water. Igrainne's property is located the western edge of Veleraen's estate. The acres are part wooded, part farmland."

Possessions


Magical

Secrets :

From Fae'rel:
Cookies & Chocolates - organic and nutritious but doesn’t go bad? Magic! You have two cookies left that each will curb your hunger for one brightening.
Thorny Tea Leaves - brews a very, very strong tea and is a known rare reagent.
Tisi Trail Seeds - rare seeds that may be nurtured and planted outside of Fae’rel.

* * *

Triel Xythan’tor gave her 30 glass orbs which contain healing spells. Generally, Igrainne carries a few of these with her and tries to give them away to her friends and loved ones, especially when they are abandoning her at the Keep to go on terribly dangerous adventures. :-D

* Light Heal- can heal several small wounds or one large wound, can reset a broken bone
6/ 15 remain - gave away five to NPC neighbors, as healers are hard to come by in the countryside
Autumn XXI - gave 3 to Vaishen
Winter XXI - healed a wolf

* Heal- a greater version of the light heal spell, can save someone from their injuries if they are close to death, can heal shattered bones and serious injuries
2/ 10 remain- gave away two to NPC friends
Summer XXI- gave 4 to Veleraen
Autumn XXI- gave 2 to Vaishen

* Greater Heal- a powerful healing spell that can regrow small appendages such as fingers or toes
1/ 5 remain- gave one to Veleraen, who used it to heal Vaishen during the Centripaxian Xet battle
Summer XXI - Gives 2 more to Veleraen
Autumn XXI - Gives 1 to Vaishen



Animals, Other
Secrets :
Other: a charcoal drawing, a golden feather, the allegiance of the Knights of Verus Fides, panpipes that summon? some nutty badgers
Animals: 1 aged horse, 2 pigs, 20 hens (gave away 28 from the original 48 from Veleraen), 2 roosters, 1 mastiff



Clothing, Jewelry
Secrets :
pair of brown pants, old linen shirt, white shift, blue shift, worn blue dress, “new” yellow dress made from curtains, pair brown boots, stockings, faded red apron, straw hat, large blue ribbon

New for Autumn XX:
Blouse, light colored
Skirt, dark purple
Linen Dress, light with a floral pattern
Silk Dress, dark blue
Cloak, dark green and oh so cloak-like
Mysterious Ladies’ Underclothes, None Of Your Business

And more for Autumn XX:

"At the end of it, the Rynum women had designed three gowns, each complete with small adornments and an accompanying pair of shoes embroidered and with the popular slight heel that would take considerable practice before she could walk gracefully in them and, later, dance.

"First, there would be the agreed favorite: a triumph of cream and pale gold to set off her dark features and tanned skin. It was an aetherian piece of delicate lacework and stitched pearls, its lines kept simple to prevent it from overwhelming her slight frame.

"Next, there was the cranberry color that Arina had chosen. This heavy silk would become a more traditional winter ensemble with tight sleeves, a pointed bodice, and a full skirt. Igrainne wondered whether it would look too severe on her, or as though she’d borrowed the gown of a much older lady, but she trusted the woman’s instincts.

Finally, they would create a dress that Agnes and Isabella had suggested so subtly that Arina firmly believed it to be her own idea, and therefore loved it with alarming enthusiasm. This last one would combine the cream cloth that had enchanted Igrainne with a sky blue color that would be cheerful in the cold brightenings to come."

Jewels and accessories:

a fragile-seeming circlet of small flowers worked in silver and gold with a tiny azure gem set in each
a small golden lion’s head pendant on a delicate chain
a silver ring worked in the likeness of a rooted tree with leafy boughs, with an emerald in its center and slivers of emerald set into the branches, inscribed inside with "Vincit Omnia Pertinax Virtus"



Peasant Labors

Era X

The Mageocracy of Julos the Mad continues.

It is the winter before the Ancient Aelyrians return to Prime, the same winter that Sharinya is named the Queen of the Fae. Civil war brews yet again as Guardian Julos descends into madness and Audrey de Lylles gathers support for her cause. But in Primus Countryside, the peasants are far more concerned with surviving these six months of winter than with the far-off throne.

Igrainne is ten. She is the daughter of wheat farmers, the third child of four, an active girl with a big imagination and no patience for her mother’s schola lessons. The majority of her real education centers around practical lore: cleaning, cooking, mending, and the raising of plants, animals, and children. There are no idle hands on the Birch farm. The long winter season has meant they will be behind on their taxes again; her parents have little hope of ever owning their thirty acres, which are leased indirectly from the Lylles of Lysandria.

Era XI

The Ancients have returned. Empress Audrey reigns. The Feeble Pox is cured.

At eleven, Igrainne’s hero is her elder brother Walen, who left the farm three eras before to seek his fortune as a soldier. He returns home with tales of adventures- dueling vysstichis, fighting goblins and trolls, and a blessing from Carmelya in the form of a great eagle. Although Walen has to leave after just one cycle at home, his stories stay with his impressionable sister.

In the spring, the girl plays in the meadows, pretending she is a faerie, when she encounters a young lord dressed in a naval uniform and riding a fine horse. Although Alexis Sapientia is all of seventeen patterns, he plays along with the peasant child. She names him an ambassador to her faerie kingdom and crowns him with flowers.

Era XVI

Prince Milo reigns. It is the Longest Winter.


Igrainne turns fifteen amid the unnatural snows. She has become too thin; they all have. Nothing grows; the fields lay fallow. There is little to eat and no one to help them. Her mother gave birth to a baby boy, a sickly infant who lived for only three cycles. They buried him in the frozen ground.

There is nothing to do but pray.




Era XVIII

The Triumvirate begins to unravel. This is the era of the Eclipse of Chaos.

At seventeen, Igrainne has taken on many of the duties of running her family’s home and often works beside her father in the fields, too, as they can rarely afford to hire men. Her dreams of adventure have shrank to little more than expectant thoughts about marrying a neighboring shepherd boy and having a farm and family of her own.

The dawn of the Age of Heroes arrives at the Birch Farm in the form of the gravely injured Veleraen- who would, in time, prove to be the girl’s greatest friend. He later sends the family new chickens and wood to build a better coop, and- unknown to the Birch girls- gives Apher Birch a wealth of crowns, enough to ensure they will never want for anything. He patches the walls of his home, improves their fences, buys new boots for his daughters, and puts the rest into an account in Prime.

Summer draws out many other visitors, too: among these, a sweet noble lady who takes Igrainne to beautiful Lysandria for the first time, and an inquisitive and generous vysstichi healer who sends the girl a box of magic orbs. A young squire accidentally spies on Igrainne while she swims in the river.



Autumn brings her brother home again, the first time in seven eras. This time, Walen is broken in health and spirit, and she strives to restore both. There are rumors of riots in Prime, due to the grain shortage, and so the family avoids the First City and maintains a vigilant watch over their small crop. Carmelya blesses them with continued safety and a magnificent harvest, which they attribute to the Eclipse and Carmelya’s ascension as Queen of Aetheria. Igrainne’s devotion to her goddess is sealed by witnessing these events in the sky.

They acquire a new cow. There is much to celebrate at the harvest festival.

Autumn also brings the return of Alexis, no longer a boy with wildflowers in his hair, but an Imperial Regent thunderously arriving with an entourage of fifty armored men, the finest carriage the peasants have ever seen, and his own noble children. It is a strange season.

In winter, representatives of Lysandria come to collect their taxes, knowing the season has been a bountiful one. Later, Igrainne meets a druid and her daughters, who have taken up residence in the Pegasi Wood.

Era XIX

Civil war. A new star appears. The fog descends. Tragedy finds them.

The young woman now frequently accompanies her father into Prime to sell their surplus grain and eggs. She excels at bartering in the mercantile district markets. Her friendship with the druid holy woman continues, there is money to hire hands to bring in this era’s harvest, although they are wary of the growing number of desperate people fleeing the western fog.

Winter comes and brings change to the Empire. Igrainne dreams the same dream as everyone she knows, and witnesses a new star. An army marches through the countryside, heading towards the capital. Igrainne sets her dogs upon two men who are fighting one another in her pig sty, and does not know they are no less than the ex-regent Alexis Sapientia and a lord of the family to whom her own owes their allegiance, Roscarnis de Lylles. Later, Igrainne numbers among the masses celebrating Rhysatra’s coronation.

Winter comes and brings change to the Birch Farm, as well. Igrainne’s father is brutally murdered by a Jorelite. He is buried next to his infant son. The Birch women no longer go upstairs.

Era XX




Rhysatra reigns. The Xet invade.

By spring, Igrainne is working from before dawn to after dusk each brightening, trying to keep the farm running on her own- and failing. Her father is dead, her mother is inconsolable, and her younger sister is withdrawn and angry. At last, she realizes her life will never be what it was and in these dark times, Igrainne leaves her farm to seek the help of the giant. She tells Veleraen what has happened; ultimately cannot bring herself to ask for the murderer's death.

Veleraen offers her a home at Caronis Keep. She thinks he means for her to continue as a farmer, and to serve at the Keep- which would be an honorable and safe life for the peasant, as well as her remaining family. The next morning, before the assembled knighthood, Veleraen makes his intentions clear: he grants Igrainne the title of Lady, 25 acres of land, and the position of castellan.

The summer is spent in mourning and in a constant state of change. She tends her work and, thanks to the money that Veleraen gave her family, secures a new home for her mother and sister in the capital, and an apprenticeship for her sister. The farm will be given over to a neighbor's expanding family.

In the autumn, Igrainne turns nineteen. She harvests her two and a half acres of wheat and takes it to Prime, as she once did with her father, and gives it all away. Caronis Keep is a lonely place now that the giant and his knights have gone to battle the Xet. She decides to stay in Prime for a cycle or so, visiting her family and getting into all sorts of situations. She visits the Temple of Aslan to pray for Veleraen, the knights, and her brother.

Family

Apher Birch, father
Greta Birch, mother
Natash Birch, younger sister
Walen Birch, older brother

Close Friends

Veleraen
Beloved friend. Biggest brother. Hero, lord, mentor. Reason why she can't get a date.
Met in Summer, Era XVIII: Prime Has 99 Problems but a Birch Ain't One
Threads Of Note: In Dark Times, We Look to Our Heroes, One Less Bell to Answer!


Veleraen is her personal hero and most beloved friend. They met when the injured giant stumbled onto her family's farm and Igrainne, then a teenager, helped to care for him. He befriended the family and, after he recovered, sent her father a small fortune of gold and chickens that ensured the Birch family would never starve again. When Apher was murdered, Veleraen asked Igrainne to stay in Caronis as his castellan and bestowed upon her the title of Lady. Their friendship has transformed her entire life. Her loyalty to him is beyond question and keeps her on an honorable path.

Aydyn Blair
Fellow druid. Holy woman. Best friend, teacher, sister.
Met in winter, Era XVIII: A Serendipitous Encounter in the Snow
Threads of Note: A Message In A Clearing, Sun, Dirt, Water


They met when Aydyn and her daughters moved into the Pegasi Wood near the Birch farm. Igrainne grew close to the Blair family over the eras. Aydyn has been teaching Igrainne to be a druid, from the working of the spells to what it truly means to be a caretaker of Carmelya's creation. She is like an older sister to Igrainne.

Avanelle
<333

Vaishen Vadei
...who?

Friends

Alexis Sapientia
Childhood acquaintance. An idealist to be admired. A mystery still after all these eras.
Met in:
Threads of Note:


They met when Igrainne, then eleven, was playing in a field. Alexis, at seventeen, had joined the Imperial Navy and was crossing through to Prime but stopped to rest at the farm, let her crown him with flowers, and played along with her imaginary game. They met a second time when she was seventeen and he was the Imperial Regent. In recent eras, he calls her a friend and treats her, as he always did, as an equal. Igrainne regards him as a brilliant, educated leader but does not understand the politics surrounding his rise and fall.

Cyrus Kemp
Squire meets farm girl. An early unrequited crush. Over it.
Met in:
Threads of Note:


She totally caught him innocently fishing spying on her when she was swimming in the river and threatened to throw rocks at him. Teenage awkwardness abounded and there appeared to be interest on both sides, but he returned to his training in Lysandria and she never heard from him again. Not even a single scroll, bro. When they ran into one another in Prime a year later, he for Lylles business and she for Caronis, he was polite and distant. She realized that he saw her as a child although she was nearly nineteen, and that he was basically a stranger to her. They parted ways on good terms.

Barthelme
Parhus
Lyric

Acquaintances

Bladewyn Imaire
Madelyn Twist
Aden Butcherson

Thumbs Down

Éclair Izumi
Murderer. Demon girl. Jorelite. Nightmare figure.
Met in:


Éclair murdered Igrainne's father and a neighbor woman. Igrainne suffers terrifying nightmares wherein she relives their encounter, or else dreams of Éclair murdering the rest of her family and friends. Her memories of the girl have built up over time, making her more demon than the deceptive skin of a human girl the dracon had worn that day. Igrainne has neither heard of nor seen Éclair since then, but remains vigilant, even though she doesn't know what she will do when that time comes.

Lightem Massani
An unpredictable mage who intimidates her, despite his possibly benign intentions.
Met in:


She crossed paths with Lightem when he saw her getting splashed with water by a passing carriage. He acted strangely and cast a spell on her without asking, which she found alarming despite his reasonably good intentions to dry her because it is super weird when a total stranger pops by to dry you. Igrainne encountered him again the following winter and was terrified of the way he threatened other travelers, although he also used his spells to keep them safe in a sudden snow storm. This likely saved her life, but her impression of him remains one of unease and fear for the way he tends to draw a blade on anything that sneezes and feels free to cast spells upon others without their permission.

Lyr
An ungrateful drunkard. The only man she's ever seen naked.
Met in:


Lyr attacked a Xet that had her pinned down. During this battle, they were covered in Xet eggs and had to strip off their clothes to destroy the eggs. Igrainne ended the battle by strangling a wasplike creature and bashing it until it died, saving them both. Lyr, however, clearly recalls having single-handedly saved the girl from deadly danger, but he's a lying, smelly drunk. It is true, however, that he saw her in her underwear. Oopsie.

Jade Alanon
A brazen hussy who wouldn't know a nice dress if she saw one, much less how to keep it on.
Met in:
Threads of Note:


Ugh, Jade.
