Known Information


Her father is only distantly related to the main branch of the Shahrizai family, but he has the name and the Kusheline blood and all the pride that goes with it. Accordingly, he is said to have been somewhat scandalized when his daughter was judged to be fit for the Valerian canon of the Rose Sauvage, instead of the Thorny Roses.

Indeed Denise has had to endure several jokes about the "Valerian Shahrizai", but the House's decision seems to have been justified, as she grew to learn the yielding canon with remarkable insight. Her virgin price was a thoroughly decent one (perhaps helped by the appeal to some of seeing a Shahrizai kneel) and she proceeded to make her marque in a fairly standard amount of time. What surprised a few people, however, is that despite her noble connections, she has for now decided to stay on at the Salon, supposedly to the annoyance of her father who had wanted her to take a more active role in court politics…



emmanuelle Lady Emmanuelle : Striking and imposing. Really everything a Shahrizai ought to be. A bit frightening, too, but I hope to get to know her better.
