Anastasia

Anastasia:

“They were extremely pale, their skin almost waxen in appearance, their eyes deep set, dark, and intense. All were clad in jet-black. The pair who led them was especially striking. The woman’s lips were narrow and bright crimson in color, whether by nature or artifice I could not tell. Her fingernails ha been dyed to match. Both she and the man had bony, aristocratic features: well-defined cheeks and jaws jutting, arrogant noses and dark, winged brows. They made a handsome couple, he in billowing shirt, tight trousers and high boots, she in a formfitting gown whose plunging neckline left little to imagination.”

Cezar

Cezar:

“At eighteen, Cezar was as tall as his father and a great deal broader, with a short, well kept dark beard and forceful eyebrows.”

“His features tightened, his dark eyes turning bleak.”

Eile

Eile:

“A little good feeding and a temporary sense of security had begun to turn the half-starved wretch of Cloud Hill into a thin but healthy-looking girl with a long sweep of glossy hair the hue of oak leaves in the autumn. The green eyes were bright, though still wary; her skin had a better color now.”

Clodagh & Deirdre

Clodagh & Deirdre:

“She and I had inherited our mother’s flaming curls, which could be striking if tended with care, but had a tendency to go wild at the least provocation.”

“But my twin looked lovely today, her happiness shinning from her face, the green gown perfectly setting off her bright eyes, her hair tumbling over her shoulders from ribbons that caught it high at the back.”

Alpin

Alpin:

“The broad, leather-clad shoulders of her future husband were constantly in view as she rode after him. His dark brown hair, long and thick, hung down his back, not unkempt exactly, but suggestive of a certain quality that she had seen already in his questioning of Faolan and his crude attempts at humor.”

Ana

Ana:

“The sunlight, filtering down through the canopy of new spring green, touched her golden hair to a brightness that seemed almost magical. Her voice was low and gentle, her gray eyes full of a deep calm.”
