Known Information

Mirzeta is one of the Khalif of Khebbel-im-Akkhad's daughters, thus making her a Princess of royal blood. She's the only daughter of his third wife and also a younger sister to Dariush.

She comes to Marsilikos as an Emissary, after invitations were extended by the Duchesse d'Eisande to attend the Great Exhibition and showcase the culture and beauty of her country. She brings examples of their skillfully crafted and jewel-embellished weapons, and exquisitely woven rugs, carpets and cloths. She also brings a selection of her finest horses with her, along with a large entourage of servants and personal guards.


From early on Mirzeta was pampered, for whilst the Khalif had many sons, his daughters numbered fewer and were all the more treasured for being so. As a young woman in a patriarchal society she was never going to hold a position of power or influence, and her role would be to one day make a political alliance through marriage. It's a marriage that she's thus far evaded. This is due in some part to her father's love for her and his desire to keep her close whilst finding a tolerable husband for her, but also due to an enlightened male relative who sees the potential the bright young woman presents. For now she's enjoying a freedom that's so elusive to others like her.

Mirzeta learned the language of Menekhet from one of her half-brother's wives. The land and its culture fascinates her, and in 1307 she was included in a diplomatic visit to the country. It was here that she discovered the beauty of their horses, and when she returned home to Khebbel-im-Akkad, she brought with her two stallions and ten mares with the intention of improving the bloodlines of their own royal herd. The cross-breeding has resulted in lines that are not only strikingly beautiful, but fleet of foot and courageous too.




dariush Prince Dariush of House Shamabarsin/Brother : Six years my senior, he was sent for reasons of safety to live in Marsilikos with his new wife. I haven't seen him in over a year now, and I understand that he is currently away from the City.
farah Lady Farah Mereliot/Cousin : One of my numerous cousins. She left Khebbel-im-Akkad earlier in the year to make a political marriage with a d'Angeline.
