Royalty turned Traveling Performer
Mirror's face is weaved with soft edges and curves, sloping elegantly around high cheekbones to softly pointed chin to form the shape of a heart. Simmering amber orbs sit dominantly in their sockets, shadowed by sets of long ebony lashes that give the otherwise innocent eyes a demeanor of secrets to be discovered. Above them, a pair of slender eyebrows arch, their inner-tips slanting slightly upwards
Her nose is slim and u

large behind that caused a f
air amount of teasing when she was still amongst the Twili.
n sharp contrast to her attire back home, Mirror dresses in generally simple clothes that resemble those of a merchant's daughte
or a gy
psy, with some minor embroidery along things like long

She does lavish in the chance to wear something more osten
tatious, though they are rare and she often has to hide such items from whoever she travels with.
One item of particular fondness, that she hasn't parted with sinc

a Twili cloak that hides the user from scrying.

Mirror was born as the niece of

disappeared all too suddenly after her birth, leaving her to be raised by the woma
