Persona:[edit | edit source]
- Aline is the daughter of a fairly recently ennobled family with merchant roots, coming from the vicinity of 14th century Canterbury. Through the deaths of her brothers, Aline is now sole heiress to the family. She has been married off by the Black Prince as payment and thanks to a favored German mercenary, who now drags her around Europe and deposits her in convents while he chases battle. She spends her time with the lay sisters in the kitchens and annoying the workers in the scriptorium.
- Aline's device is Vert, on a bend argent between two badgers statant argent marked three reremice sable.
- Aline's motto is Stultorum Numerus Infinitus Est.
