Outward Appearance

At a first glance, Mearhe (pronounced Meear + e) appears much like any other who spends their life outdoors. She stands tall and proud, with a long mane of pale golden hair, which is often braided. Her skin is fair with a light rose hue, and marked by the occasional freckle here and there. A small nose perched above full lips, rarely seen without honeyrose balm, to provide a polite smile to those she meet. But her most outstanding feature is her eyes. They are almond-shaped, green in color and profound, reflecting the love for her land. 


Imrad-Lind

On her right forefinger Mearhe wears a beautiful elven ring of intricate design named Imrad-lind ( The Path of the Song ) . A gift from Duncadda, and the exact copy of the ring he wears called Imrad-liltha ( The Path of the Dance ) . The two rings are twins and bound together forever like their wearers.


Background

 


Ride Your Mare

A poem for Mearhe by Duncadda


MELODY | AESTHETIC | INVENTORY | THE HALLS

Although she is not a woman of violence, Mearhe is not wholly defendless. When riding and traveling, she carries a sword named Meaegling in a leather scabbard strapped to her back. Do not let her peaceful demeanor fools you, she is a woman of Rohan. If necessary, she will kill you. A finely crafted saddle bag filled with the tools of her trade and other essentials, follows Mearhe wherever she goes. A set of embroidery needles and yarn of different colors. A water flask. A knife. Small pouches for loose herbs, resin, and tea leaves. Honeyrose balm, a small piece of charcoal, and some parchment. Spare clothing, a comb, and rations.

Early Life

Born from a fair mother of humble roots and a Rider of Rohan father of pride. A loyal daughter she was, a subject of her fathers’ life. She spent her early years learning from the one man she could not aspire to become. In the dreams of this child, she often saw herself by her father's side, riding free, sword in hand, to defend her beloved land.

Thrust into womanhood, she was trained young in the art of weaving by her mother. Unable to follow Fengal, she served the next best thing. Folcadda a trusted friend and close warrior-brother of her father. From task to task she followed without question, from the menial tasks of shoeing horses and scraping rust from a blade. To the dangers of road-side bouts with orcs and enemies of Rohan. She learnt much of war and suffering, but little of life itself. Like most of her people she cannot read or write, but has learned to sing, and she likes to draw.

The Past

In her prime, she is a true woman of Rohan. Strong, proud and wise. She has mastered her temper and honed her mind. Despite the age difference, she was married to Folcadda but no child came from their union. According to local rumors, evil magic, a course, and elves were to blame. Her days spent in service of husband lord, until his sudden death. Years of serving and submission came to an end, and a new day lead to more promising prospects for a brighter future. 

The Present

Mearhe's destiny has placed her by side of her man Duncadda. Both scarred by darkness and shadow, they walked together the healing path of the Whispering Forest where their love for one another grew and blossomed under the watchful eye of the an ancient tree called The Lord Of The Forest. They are now forever bound together and starting a new life in a small village called Bancross at the outskirt of Edoras.
