Bio:

Also called “Ara” or “Bella” informally, Lady Ravenna’s father, Lord Quintus Ravennus, is the Lord Mayor of Tammerling and the brother of the elder Lady Harte. Lady Ara’s mother, Valeria, died when she was small trying to bring a son into the world, but both she and the child were lost. Lord Quintus remarried about ten years later, taking his wife’s younger sister, Tea (TAY-uh) as his new bride. Being only eight years apart and already aunt and neice, Ara and her step-mother get along very well and are wonderful friends, sharing the common bond of having lost Valeria and both caring a great deal for Quintus. Tea has bourne her husband three sons already Maximus, Gaius, and Octavian, Ara’s little brothers, currently 7, 6, and 4 at the beginning of the story’s main action.

Baroness Silvia Manning (aka “the Bride”) is Lady Ara’s cousin. Ara’s father and Silvia’s mother are siblings. Silvia’s mother is the elder Lady Harte who currently is the de facto ruler of House Harte, with aid from her brother, as her husband’s sanity gradually wanes.

With the exception of her mother’s death, Ara has had a fairly happy life, although frought with the dangers of politics. At a young age, she realized the importance of findig some base of power, especially as a woman in such politically unstable surroundings. She has trained with Aldori Swordlords and began riding with the constabulary of Tammerling at about age twelve. She has earned their respect and proven her worth in their eyes, especially since people who unjustly cross the Lady or threaten the common good of Tammerling seem to have some sort of accident in the dead of night.

The most memorable incident, occuring about a year before the Manning-Harte Union, involved a pompous, obnoxious visting knight. The knight claimed he going hunting for a hart (a doe) and was found dead several days later, apparently killed by bandits not known to frequent the area where the knight was ambushed. The same evening the knight went out hunting, Lady Ara returned from an errand to the woods a bit roughed up, claiming to have been startled by a wild boar that she managed to scare off before it was able to gore her.

All in all, Ara’s a decent, down-to-earth young woman who simply wants to keep herself and those she cares for alive and well cared for. She has a sympathy for those less fortunate, especially after witnessing the terrible “accident” which permanently injured Jerimiah when they were both young children. She has a good relationship with her father and the rest of her family, making sure to cultivate her good relations with her cousin the Baroness Silvia Manning (nee Harte).
