Hmm what will today bring? A hunt? Gaming at the Rampant stag? Or maybe I should see if today is perhaps the day that I might finally win my way into fair Callie's arms!


Son of Ingrid Redwolf, the Countess of Giant's Fastness, Shaene is an unruly young man with few accomplishments to justify his pride. Somewhat scared of his uncle Dane Ceolfrithsson Shaene alternates between being gald he will not be burdened with rulership, and annoyance that his uncle will likely 'steal his inheritance' by being named heir in Shaene's stead.
Shaene's father died when he was a lad and his mother's courtly and druidic duties meant he was often left in the care of servants and family members. They were wary of punishing him, and his mothers felt too guilty at her absences to ever chatise him, as a result Shaene grew into a headstrong willful lad who cared for little beyond his own pleasure ? as a dozen tumbled lasses can attest to each year.
Shaene has a fondness of practical jokes and tomfoolery which served him well in obtaining his mother's attention when he was a lad, as he matures however the tolerance of those about him is waning. Shaene is an accomplished gambler and gossip merchant , but shuns physical confrontation in the main - though his hot temper sometimes stops his glib tongue getting him out of trouble.

[top]Proof of love

At last summer's proving fayre, Shaene cast his eyes at Darnae Nolien. Despite amusing her with a number of jets, she did not seem overly interested - no doubt because of the attention she also received from Borg Ceolfrithsson and William Dhariel. Shaene has pondered on and off how he might win the affections of the most beautiful girl in all Dhoesone, and come to the conclusion that he needs to firstly prove himself tough enough to be accepted by her father, secondly remove the competition, and thirdly win her favor.
The last is in his mind the easiest, a potion of love slipped into William's drink while he is with some girl should suffice for him - the overly honorable fool will doubtless marry her the morning after. Borg is more of a problem, for Shaene detests his cousin for innumerable 'friendly sparring matches' through childhood, but news on goblin raids will doubtless be effective - sooner or later Borg will be struck down by some lucky goblin.
That just leaves proving himself to Aedric Nolien, which Shaene is grimly concerned will involve some act of foolish bravado and likely physical risk. Shaene is currently trying to decide if Darnae is gorgeous enough to risk life and limb for...
