Known Information

Emmanuelle nó Mandrake de Shahrizai is the former Dowayne of Mandrake House, a known scion of Kushiel, and a half-sister of the Lady of Marsilikos. She retired from her high seat on Mont Nuit in the summer of 1310, for reasons she has not chosen to speak of publicly. She lives now in the Maison Sanglante in the Place des Mains, which notorious residence at the very heart of Marsilikos she and her father Edouard Shahrizai have for some time now been refurbishing for their family's use. Rumour suggests she hasn't entirely abandoned Naamah's service, though the story seems to differ depending upon whom one gets it from.




armandine The Lady of Marsilikos : Favourite sister.
desarae The Unexpected Heiress : A niece met for almost the first time as a grown woman dealing with the aftermath of tragedy. For the sake of the girl's late mother, her sister Monique, Emmanuelle is interested in forging a relationship: but progress is slow and barriers linger, not all of which Emmanuelle would wish to overcome.
ortolette The Resurgent Blossom : The niece with whom Emmanuelle has naturally had the most to do, in their respective capacities as the family invalid and the family chirurgeon. In Ortolette's childhood she folded paper flowers for her; the gifts she brings now are of rather more sophisticated a nature.
irene The Baby Goat : A lady-in-waiting of the duchesse de Mereliot, whom Emmanuelle treated for a serious illness in her lungs contracted in the late summer of 1310. The girl seemed to possess a death wish, which Emmanuelle made it her business to thwart; in truth it was more of a love wish aimed at Lord Cyriel Charlot. As soon as Irene was well enough to travel she left ducal service to return to her family's lands, accompanied by her chirurgeon's misgivings.
cyriel The Victorious : When two predators meet there's not much to be done but circle cautiously and depart in different directions. Still, this Charlot lord was a pleasure to tease.
alcibiades The Sailor : A useful man, whose weak points provide solid entertainment: and now a patient into the bargain, with threads tied to him that he may not yet understand. He gives nice presents.
jehan-pascal The Lost Calf : It's all right. Emmanuelle has found him now.
etienne The Herring : Half-Baphinol, and thus half-amusing. Emmanuelle is keeping him on her line, albeit loosely. Timewaster.
