Age 19. Single. 5' 8"
Red Bronze hair. Water green eyes.
Slim will-o-wisp build.
Being the youngest
could be both a blessing and curse. For Deirdre it was more blessing
than curse, even when they had to flee their home. There was
so much more to see and do in the lands that were their new home.
The only thing she missed was their father.
Graceful of limb
in a natural flowing rhythm earned her the moniker of Little Swan
from her older brother James. A brother she adored in a hero
worshiping way. Becoming of age, the few males met were gauged
accordingly and so far they had gone lacking. Luckily she didn't
think much on them or too often as the woods drew her and all the
little living creatures found there. From the wee tadpole to the
white-tail deer. She had a natural rapport even with ones not liking
humans. When Ultan came with his son and daughter, her cousins, and
her brother had left, they were dark times in her life that she took
to the woods to avoid these relatives she care not for uncle or his
son. She became much like the little woodland creatures to scurry
away on silent feet rather. She was the youngest and easily
overlooked, preferring it that way.
Originally from County Clare, Ireland, the province of Munster,
Tomas Callihan left his home to seek his fortune like so many
others. He traveled for many years until finally making his
home in a rough and tumble land that eventually became the Duchy of
Montrose. Carving out a land that was rich in lumber, precious
metals and dark soil good for growing grain, he also found a

was still a child, the Duchess died. Ronan never remarried
again, knowing he would mourn his Rose until his dying day.

a peaceful life until on the night of a terrible storm, Ronan
and his eldest son argued. No one knows the reason or what was
said, but James rode away and was not heard from again. Ronan
distanced himself from Kildare when the King went mad.
Mountains and a river kept them from being invaded at first, though
the Duchy was in a constant state of readiness.
Adam, the second
son, was groomed to take over the Duchy, but he had little desire to
take his brother's place. After his two younger brothers,
Morgan and Faelan were sent off to Ireland to learn the ways of
sailing a ship, Adam slipped away to search for James. Ronan
became ill and the people whispered the illness was sent from
Kildare itself. His closest advisor -- his brother Ultan --
began to take over the Duchy, leaving Ronan as little more than a
puppet. Morgan and Faelan, had led a mutiny
against their captain and now have their own ship. One night,
