Glorious Dawn

Claire was born in Camp Verde, Arizona, as the youngest of three daughters. Her family was reasonably well off, and she rarely lacked for anything while growing up. If anything, she may have been a little bit spoiled as a child, but she was definitely happy. She seemed so utterly innocent, and was quick to make friends. She certainly wasn't the one getting bullied in school; indeed, a lot of the 'bullies' seemed to be protecting her.


As she grew from a small child to a young woman, Claire's circle of friends just grew and grew. She was the popular one, the trendsetter, the queen bitch of the school. She was developing a somewhat dark, sinister streak at this stage, but almost nobody noticed; as far as outward appearances were concerned, she was a paragon of virtue, someone to look up to, someone to emulate. Still, earning her displeasure was often... unhealthy. Oh, she'd never lay hands on anyone herself, but she didn't have to. She had other people for that.


After graduating from highschool (with considerably higher grades than she technically should have gotten), Claire apparently grew restless. She'd do the whole college bit later, she'd say. She disappeared from time to time, generally with some excuse that was perfectly plausible but not actually true. She'd spend quite a lot of time travelling around Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Texas, with the occasional foray into California and Utah. Why, she'd either not say or just plain lie about. Her family thought she was trying to 'find herself'.

By now, Claire has moved to California, settling into Prospect. By day, she's a charming socialite; by night, a professional (if harsh) dominatrix. Or maybe, just maybe, she's something else entirely...

Gathering Shadows

War. War never changes, just ask Ron Perlman. It does change people, though. Back before the return of the Sidhe and the Accordance War, Iolhinn was just a commoner Pooka like any other - carefree and mischevious, without too much of a vicious streak... or perhaps she just hid it well. As war broke out, though, she took up arms along with her fellow commoners to defend the freedom they'd grown accustomed to. What exactly she did during the war is not public knowledge, but it wasn't pretty... war rarely is.

In Blackest Night

After the war, Iolhinn was left embittered towards the predominantly Seelie Houses that had led the invasion. The Night of Iron Knives had resulted in the permanent deaths of several long-time friends of hers; she'd only missed the fateful meeting herself due to being a prisoner of war at the time, having been captured by a group of Satyrs loyal to House Fiona a short time before. Little surprise, then, that she turned to the Unseelie houses after her release, marrying a noble of House Ailil and being absorbed into the nobility herself as a result. Now, a lifetime (and a dead husband) later, she's risen to the ranks of House Ailil's foremost diplomats and politicians, serving as an advocate of peaceful social progress... officially.

Where the Sun does not Shine

Ever since the eventual death of her Sidhe husband, now-Baroness Iolhinn has taken over custody of his Freehold. From her seat at the Court of Stars deep underground, she rules over the Barony of Starlit Caverns, a small but excessively wealthy Barony within the County of the Emerald Dale. Her hospitality is well-known, and any Kithain and Kinain is generally welcomed there... again, officially.

Don't Know These People

To Sleep, perchance to Dream
Roxanne D'Arte "As far as nazi war criminals go, she's not that bad. 'Just following orders', right?"
Alala Wells "For your benefit, every statement I make will contain exactly one lie, and it will be an obvious one. Now please stop accusing me of dishonesty, such slander is most unbecoming of a proper noblewoman. Not all Pooka are liars."
Dyson Wells "Mostly harmless."
Wake up, Crono
Aveline de Lampériere "Mine. All mine. Not yours. Mine."
Kyrie de Brocéliande "The early bird gets the worm. I stay up all night. You do the math."
