Baroness Sibilla d'Angers was born in the year of 1177 in the City of Angers, County of Anjou. At the time of her birth, King Henry of England controlled the County, mostly as a strategic buffer against King Philip of France. In her childhood, Henry passed, leaving the County, along with the rest of his empire, to King Richard, known and The Lionhearted. Upon his death, the County went to Arthur, he young Duke of neighboring Brittany. Much fighting ensued in the fight between the young Arthur and the dead King's brother, John Lackland, for control of the throne. Upon Arthur's disapearance in 1203, Anjou was siezed by King Phillip II of France. The current Seneshal of Anjou, William des Roches, defends often against King John's attempts to seize the County. Des Roches recently left for Crusades, leaving the area vulnerable and unstable. As a minor Baroness, Sibilla, when home, stays in the safety of the Chateau d'Angers.
Sibilla has spent the vast majority of her years serving abroad in the courts of the Kingdom of the East. Many and King and Queen has she joined the retinue of, serving as Lady in Waiting to many. When not at court, and not visiting her lands in Anjou, she retires to Fontevraud Abbey, where the much admired, Queen Eleanor passed and was laid to rest.

The below is my retired Persona:
Tat'iana Negoshka Danilova is a Lady born of a minor Boyer of the Muscovite court. During her childhood, Tsar Ivan came to power as a young man himself. As her father watched the young Monarch grow into a powerful but twisted man, he worried for his young daughter. Seeking to secure the safety of his only daughter, he sent her to foster with a noble friend in Spain. Tat'iana's new residence traveled a great deal with the Spanish Lord, eventually settling in Italy with the Lord's marriage to a wondrous Italian Lady. With his marriage and acquisition of his lady's seat, Tati'ana was invited to foster with another of her father's friends in England. She now resides within the Duchy Tarragon. Tat'iana visits her family in Moscow twice a year and secretly enjoys bringing the exotic fashions and shocking stories of Ivan's court back. Tat'iana worries for the safety of her father; for the Tsar's madness seems to only get worse every year.
