Background

The daughter of a wealthy family of Fenmarch, married to Osgar son of Hincmar in her nineteenth year. Though theirs was not a marriage of her choosing, she grew to love Osgar and bore him three children, who in turn bore them grandchildren. Though not overly affectionate, her love with Osgar was a love that lightened the burden of age and the shortening years of her life. Since the death of her husband by the hand of Tunbeorht son of Beorht, she has become wracked by grief and hungry for revenge.

Friends

Most have been long dead. The rest she has cast aside in favor of pursuing the deaths of Tunbeorht and his kin.

Relatives

The Grimbaldings. Of particular note are her grandson, Adalred. and her nephew Garsig.

Rivals/Enemies

The sons and daughters of Wusfrea, Tunbeorht chief among them.

Loves

Hers is a hardened heart, and her love is only rewarded to her family. She is fond of dreams, for in them she is reunited with her love Osgar once again.

Hates

The recklessness of young men, the softness of young women, blood-feuds, and the vacant places in her bed and her dining table.

Motivation

Revenge on Tunbeorht and his kin for the death of her beloved husband, Osgar.
