Known Information

A former courtesan of La Glycine who has recently completed her marque and joined the retinue of the Baron de Narbonne.

Background

Her red hair Amaryllis has probably inherited from her grandfather, an Alban noble who had stayed in Elua as amabssador of his country for a few years. Her grandmother had been an Eglantine whom the ambassador had taken more than a casual liking to. It had been her choice to conceive his child, and that child, the lovely Fiona stayed on Mont Nuit, and grew into a courtesan of Valerian House. Fiona became the obsession of a Vicomte of House d'Essoms, and so it happened, over time, with him insisting and begging her, that she agreed to light a candle and bear him a child. This child would have become his heir — had Ivain d'Essoms not been stripped of his title, and his lands been granted to a distant cousin by the Sovereign Duc of Namarre. And so Ivain found a rather pitiful end, killed in a duel with said cousin. And Fiona had to return to Mont Nuit and offer her child to the Night Court.

Amaryllis was even back then already a beauty, fiery hair speaking of her descendance and also… Naamah's blood flowing obviously in her veins. There were these moments, when she managed to captivate with the look of her grey-green eyes alone. She was first placed at Eglantine, for her talent of dancing, but soon it became clear that her strengths would be better furthered in the House of Jasmine. This is where Bertrand spotted the novice, coming to visit exactly at the time when a patron had made advances on her and almost transgressed. The leader of the Salon de la Glycine bought out the marque from the Dowayne of Jasmine, and took Amaryllis along - away from Elua and into the Capital of the Province of Eisande. The change of ownership of her marque came with a delay to her debut. Which happened sometime around her seventeenth birthday.

Amaryllis is quite forthcoming, some might even say, 'forward', in her service to Naamah. Which fits her canon of Jasmine, she is clinging to, even within the conglomerate of canons of her salon. So far, one fourth of her marque is finished, and she continues to work on it, picking patrons she feels are deserving and capable. She differs from the 'standard' Jasmine, through her light skin and red hair, and where other Jasmines tend to study the more exotic dances of the middle-east, she has developed her own dance of seduction, incorporating parts of the dance of seven veils and sensual elements of bellydancing.
