Overview

Gwen is short, dark, and cultured; she sports the sort of long wavy hair that nobody likes, the sort of dark eyes that are completely not in vogue in England, the sort of Welsh accent that identifies her inferiority no matter how Esteemed her family is in Wales. Gwen walks with a chip on her shoulder, her every look is appraising, her every word merely a hairsbreadth shy of combative. Gwen also walks in exquisite clothing, beautiful handmade shoes, sprauncy and decadent style: the Esteemed House Crane is wealthy after all.

  • Height: 5'2"
  • Weight: 124 lbs
  • Distinguishing Features: Gwen comes from money; it is blisteringly obvious to look at her. How she walks, talks, dresses, smiles, all betray her wealth and pedigree.

Outlook

Gwen loves and hates her family as she loves and hates herself; her life is dull, her family name disrespected, her ordained future to marry a nice respectable man from another pureblood family and make nice respectable babies. Gwen wants none of that. She craves excitement, adventure, danger! The only trouble is Gwen herself comes from the lap of privilege; she cant extricate herself from the persona it cultivated anymore than she can cease breathing with her lungs and become a fish. When she struggles, when things dont fall neatly into place, when the danger becomes to real, frustration boils over. Though by no means untalented Gwen is untried and untested; despite that, no force in the world could convince her otherwise.

Her education was exceptional. Her learning, however, is underdeveloped and only now beginning.

Background

Gwendolyn is the daughter of Nolan and Fairwyn Crane, of the Esteemed House Crane of Caerffili, the fourth most prestigious pureblood house in Wales. The life of a demure, calm, well-mannered, sharply-educated daughter of the Esteemed House Crane didnt suit her well; she chose the life of a treasure-hunting hooligan instead.

Her parents might forgive her for it. Someday.
