Sarah O'Shea is a sophomore beginning her fourth semester at Fairgrove. She's a Criminal Justice major, with a concentration in Law Enforcement, and makes no secret of her ambition to become a police officer after graduation (perhaps being the daughter of a detective on the Philadelphia police force has something to do with that ;~). A proficient fencer and a card-carrying member of the Society for Creative Anachronism (under the nom de guerre "Aoife O'Donal"), she grew up in West Philadelphia, but came to Fairgrove a year and a half ago to go to college. She lives in Rowan Hall, with the rest of the bohemians.
She generally hangs around with Ken Ohtori
, Sam Takahashi-Asakura
, Michiko Sakuradai
, and Olivia Kouris
Dame Ciara ni Scathach is known at court as a knight-errant, with no allegiances as yet. She seems to be striving toward becoming the "perfect gentle knight" - brave, courteous, and always willing to lend a hand to those that need it. She looks up to Lady Valeria a great deal, and seems to have adopted the elder Scathach's behavior as a model for her own. Her father is Sir Aidan ap Scathach, a knight in service to the duchy of Liberty's Heart (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). She had a crush on Sir Kellin
during her freshman year; he broke it off gently, and they remain friends.
Mortal: Sarah is nearly 5'7", with wavy auburn hair that falls to the middle of her back, a medium complexion, and clear green eyes. Her features are perhaps too strong for conventional prettiness, but pleasing nonetheless. She prefers to wear casual fashions in deep, rich colors - midnight blue, deep emerald green, wine-red, and black are frequently-appearing colors in her wardrobe.
Fae: In faerie mien, Ciara's hair becomes a mantle of russet waves, and her almond-shaped eyes turn a startling emerald green. Her features take on a more elegant cast, and her ears taper to delicate points. Her preferred voile consists of a linen shirt with full sleeves, worn under a quilted jerkin of midnight blue leather, stitched over the heart with a black unicorn and cinched at the waist with the knight's traditional belt. Beneath that are black tights and knee-high boots, also black. A fine rapier is sheathed at her hip; the sword glitters with a million tiny points of light when the light strikes it just right.
