Known Information

Clémentine was born in the year 1287 to a Courtesan of House Orchis in the City of Elua. Fostered within the House of her mother, it was on her tenth birthday that the young girl's remarkable voice caught the attention of the Second of House Eglantine. Discussions were had between the Dowaynes of the two Houses, and shortly after that Clémentine bade farewell to her mother and the friends that she had made within House Orchis, and joined House Eglantine.

Her debut was a glittering showcase of Eglantine talent, with Clémentine wearing a dress of sheerest fabrics in golds and silvers. She was presented as a bird in a gilded cage; feathers cascading from where twisted through her hair and with a feathered mask upon her face. Her virgin price was secured by an Eisandine Comte and, having found himself entranced by the vivacious redheaded songbird, he called in some favours with the Lis d'Or Salon in Eisande. Her marque was quietly purchased by Lis d'Or, and her transfer to Marsilikos made.

She proved popular amongst the nobility of the coastal city, and with her marque repaid by the time she turned eighteen, she settled into the life of a fully marqued courtesan of the salon Lis d'Or. Her voice and her love of performing were soon to have her fondly referred to as 'The Songbird of Marsilikos' and it was at a performance given for the Lady of Marsilikos' birthday that she caught the eye of the visiting Duc de Trevalion. She quickly became a favourite of his, and was a constant companion of the ageing nobleman whenever he visited Marsilikos. In 1306, and aged twenty, she was engaged to travel with him when he toured Caerdicci Unitas and Aragonia, with the trip lasting nearly a full year before Marsilikos was to see the return of their Songbird. It was on her twenty-first birthday when, with the Duc's health rapidly failing and with a desire on his part to bestow a final grand-gesture gift upon his favourite courtesan, that he presented her with both the right to utilise the name of Trevalion as her own, and the grandly named Opéra de Marsilikos. Grandly named, for it was a struggling theatre company that was in its decline rather than its ascension due to a lack of investment and creative foresight.

Two years on, Clémentine has turned the Opéra de Marsilikos around, building its reputation from the ground back up as a venue of culture and grace. She herself performs there on occasion, though her marriage to Pierre, and the birth of their first child, has kept her mostly out of the spotlight.
