Personal History/Backstory
Born to an upper-class Braavosian family of land-owners with shares in a segment of the Sweetriver, Faelash lived a sheltered childhood. Expected to take over the family business, her studies included math, language, and ownership as well as other basic schooling. Even then, Faelash did poorly at all of her studies except language. Constantly talking to the sailors and merchants from other lands, she excelled at learning and speaking their different dialects. This became a problem in her higher education, as instead of attending tutoring appointments, she would go off drinking and getting into trouble with friends. She eventually gave up on schooling and dropped out, invoking the name of her family to become a courtesan. Her striking features and Summer Isles blood made her quite popular for an amateur and she loved chatting with her clients and the other professionals. One day, she met a charming man from Dorne who introduced himself as Kearen Sekhmet. He flirted rampantly and she fell hard for him, their elaborate conversations intellectually and romantically stimulating. After weeks of chasing him to no avail, Kearen returned home, much to Faelash's desolation. She decided to follow him to Westeros and chartered her crew to depart immediately.

After a pleasantly uneventful journey, they arrived in Sunspear, the Dornish capital. The road to House Sekhmet is dangerous for the unprepared, so Faelash hired a caravan to escort them, leaving behind her ship (to return home) and most of her guard. During the lengthy trip, she got to know her Dornish guardians much better, teaching them Braavosi (mostly curses) in exchange for Common slang and current events. As the expedition's duration increased (mostly due to the navigator's inexperience) her infatuation with Kearen diminished significantly. When they finally arrived, she greeted him as a friend and he welcomed her into the house with open arms. She spent her remaining money on a comfortable houseboat on the lake for her and her bodyguard as well as some Dorne-appropriate dress.

Current biography
Faelash currently shares a two-bedroom houseboat with her bodyguard on Sanctuary Lake. She has very little money and relies on her charm and poise to keep herself popular in the market. It is unknown to the others that she is insolvent and she prefers to keep it that way. Her current actions involve attempting to ingratiate herself with the higher-ups of Houses Sekhmet and Rhyferth whose heads are not particularly accepting of Braavosi confidants.

Notable skills
High pedigree gives Faelash excellent composure, elegance, and charm. However, she frequently breaks from the character of the "upper-class lady" and can be found conversing with practically anyone in almost any language.

Notable equipment
Formal and informal dress, small jeweled dagger, jewelry
1 gold dragon and 200 silver stags
