Known Information

Elspeth nó Coquelicot grew up in Marsilikos Rose Sauvage salon, until she was tested and found to have qualities fitting of Balm. Her debut led her into the arms of Lord Oreste Lucien Rousse, who is now the Duc de Roussillion, and he continues to cultivate their arrangement to this day. Five years ago, she was named Second of Balm, serving the Coquelicot as a healer, gardener and chef of some renown.


Elspeth nó Coquelicot was born the daughter of a Valerian, Isabeau no Rose Sauvage, and Aragonian noble, Lord Lazerio Argon, that was part of the Aragonian diplomat’s entourage. Her mother saw to her care in the early years until Elspeth was old enough to be raised among the other students at House Rose Sauvage. When she got old enough to take the test, she failed by showing deep empathy for the Valerians who were eating their spiced candies. It was decided that it would be beset to move her to Coquelicot to become a Balm.

The next few years passed quickly under her studies. There was just so much to learn. She was a dedicated student who fell in love with medicine, psychology and biology. When she needed to center her mind, she used her green thumb in the garden or in the kitchen creating savory treats. As she bloomed into a beautiful young woman, it was clear that many of the nobles would be interested in bidding at her debut.

Lord Oreste Lucien Rousse, who would later become the Duc de Roussillion, attended the event and was immediately captivated by the gentle and compassionate Elspeth. He bid and won her debut. At first, Elspeth was intimidated by his gruff and hard ways, but he showed in the bedroom a kindness that very few others would ever see. While their story is not one of a great love, their deep mutual respect and chemistry has led for them to develop a relationship that has span for more than half Elspeth’s life. For this Balm has become a harbor for that weary sailor to dock his boat on stormy nights. A deep tissue massage, and comfort food has brought the Duc back to his little Balm time and time again.

In standard time, Elspeth was able to make her marque and become a full courtesan in Coquelicot. Her sweet nature and gentle ways have attracted many a noble to her arms to receive compassion and respite. The Head of House made the decision to name Elspeth Balm’s Second after her predecessor decided to heed the call of Namaah and become a Servant. Perhaps it was her devoted service but those more cynical gossip it was the Duc’s connections that got her the position. Either way, this gentle rose is a force in the Night Court’s glittering world.


"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
