Plot Information:
 
The Sheane Widower is the son of the Court of Denford's former Master of the Guard, who was killed by Eamonn Sheane during the Reckoning (or as the Sheane's refer to it: the Massacre). He was married to a Priestess of the Kerry Clan who was killed during the Reckoning as a bystander in the slaughter.

Where his cousins and family seemed to split their support between a splinter group, those following Davos Sheane, and those remaining to support the Niahm Sheane, the newly chosen Clan Queen.. the Widower instead chose to join Clan Kerry (even before his Clan was outlawed) to be closer with his wife's family. Though he finds strong support through Clan Kerry he sometimes struggles to come to terms with Lady Taryn's decisions to liaise with the Killan Queen and her Court.

What I'm Looking For...
 
This character would be a cross over between Clan Kerry / current Court of Denford and Clan Sheane / former Court of Denford which would give him at minimum 2 angles to be played. From the character I'm looking for someone who serves Kerry but initially has always been loyal to the Sheanes and has suffered a great loss.

Plot Information:
 
Lorcan Kerry is Taryn's eldest brother and a Kerry warrior through and through. This was the brother she was closest to, though Dermot was closer to her age, and the brother who trained her and ensured her readiness for any circumstance. He has been one of her key supporters.

Taryn's intention is to strike a deal with the Queen of Scelt, Loreniel Killan, through which Taryn will have her support to become the Queen of Denford and to ensure that their Courts remain civil and on good terms Taryn is going to insist that Loreniel offer a place of prestige to Lorcan Kerry.

Though she has her own Triangle she had always seen her 2 brothers and cousin as her unofficial Triangle, even if politics urge her to choose men more experienced than her brothers and cousin.

What I'm Looking For...
 
There are two main avenues for Lorcan's plots: Clan Kerry / court of Denford, as he is the brother to the Queen and they are quite close.. and the court of Scelt due to his placement there following Taryn's negotiations. At this juncture I was not planning to have Taryn tell Lorcan of this facet of the negotiation and it would come as a surprise to him when he's told to pack his bags. It can create some interesting friction between brother and sister.

... Sceltic women were not pampered, she had been told, and were considered to be stronger and tougher than their male counterparts. It was Taryn’s brothers who ensured that she learned that particular lesson well. They were the first to pick on her in the morning and the last to tease her at night, but they never tolerated any others participating in their unusual brand of fun. Lorcan and Dermot had long ago decided that they were the only ones who could pick on Taryn, and any others who dared would be dealt with accordingly. They made her tough, tougher than other witches who were her contemporaries; if there was no one within screaming distance Taryn would quietly take their tormenting but the moment someone could hear she would scream her head off and they would find themselves in trouble. It was, perhaps, one of the most valuable lessons that Taryn learned to benefit her reign as a Queen...

...While many, including the Master of the Guard, had given up instructing Taryn with an offensive weapon it was her brother Lorcan who refused to admit defeat. Lorcan, and Dermot, were perhaps the most influential people in shaping Taryn as a Queen despite her close relationship with her Aunt and the influences of her Aunt’s Court. It was no surprise then that Lorcan discovered Taryn’s unique talent with a bow and arrow. After she had shown no capabilities of managing a bladed weapon he thought to test her with a ranged weapon, the bow that their father had given to him following his Birthright Ceremony. He trained her in private for a time to determine that her skills were not luck and not a fluke. For years Lorcan trained her in privacy and without involving the Master of the Guard who had failed so badly in training Taryn, eventually though it came to the Queen’s attention that her ward had some seasoned talent with a bow and arrow, and she arranged for Taryn’s training to continue under the tutelage of the Clan’s Game Keeper, a member of the Queen’s second Circle...

- Appearing in Taryn Kerry's Character Sheet

...Rather than risk another round of bloodshed Taryn decided to try something bold and different. Escorted only by her two brothers, Lorcan and Dermot, and her cousin Conleth she was whisked away from beneath the watchful eye of her Triangle and escorted straight to the imposing doors of Killan Keep. It was a surprisingly small escort for a Queen, even a District Queen, but it had been her cousin’s suggestion to reassure the Court of Scelt that they were aggressors and posed no danger. They had left her sister, Saraid, in charge of covering for Taryn’s absence if questioned...

...She felt Lorcan, Dermot and Conleth all tense behind her as she was summarily dismissed by the Steward. The three Kerry men bristled at the way that the Prince was treating her but held their ground behind Taryn, trusting that their Queen would not take this dismissal...

Plot Information:
 
Dermot is Taryn's older brother who has had an influence on her life, though not as thoroughly as Lorcan's influence has been. Given that Lorcan will be shipped off to the Court of Scelt it is very likely that Taryn will come to rely on Dermot significantly more than she already has, and Conleth as well.

Though she has her own Triangle she had always seen her 2 brothers and cousin as her unofficial Triangle, even if politics urge her to choose men more experienced than her brothers and cousin.

What I'm Looking For...
 
Dermot's Wanted Ad is a bit more open ended than Lorcan and I am very happy for someone to take it and run with him. Within the Kerry Court there will be plots for him with Taryn, and also the Sheanes given the new found animosity between the Clans.

... Sceltic women were not pampered, she had been told, and were considered to be stronger and tougher than their male counterparts. It was Taryn’s brothers who ensured that she learned that particular lesson well.

I've chosen to release the earlier claim from Kristin, from December, on the "Mercenary Star Crossed Lover" for Taryn and have incorporated it into the above Wanted Ads. It is now available to be claimed.

I'd be interested in taking a go at Conleth, I think. I actually owe Idariel a not-of-clan-Falkirk boyo to bond with Yseult and this might kill two birds with one stone, perhaps? Though if Taryn wouldn't be overly keen on her cousin's attentions being drawn away in such a manner I can surely just make a separate character for the latter purpose. I'm unsure if you had any specific plans regarding Conleth or if he's supposed to be bonded to Taryn or anything, but feel free to let me know either way! :)

I would love for you to adopt Conleth, but I think Taryn would be too broken to lose one of her "shadow" Triangle. She's already had to give Lorcan over to the Court of Scelt as a sign of respect to the Queen of Scelt. Wouldn't mind have another close Kerry cousin to Taryn bond Yseult though! Would be more interesting since Denford and Kilvary don't necessarily have great history :)

That's totally fine and I had partially figured as much, given what I'd read regarding Lorcan going to Loreniel and such. I would still be very interested in Conleth, regardless, so I will definitely place my claim on him :) And the latter idea is very interesting, indeed! I may have to consider that angle when making the second fellow, but I'll see what strikes me for that.

Sounds great! Looking forward to writing with you then :) Taryn needs someone to torment her a bit more <.<

Woot, Dermot! I play his (and Taryn's) cousin Conleth, so we must totally thread them together when you've got him all sorted out <3 Lene is also working on Lorcan, so they can totally gang up on their poor Queenie at some point :p
