Caprice Artiglio

Every work of art is an attempt by the god Jayus to speak to the world, and make no mistake, what I weave is art.

Description: She has about her a warmth of color -- in her firelit copper hair, in her richly complected skin. She has high cheekbones, delicate, slightly gaunt cheekbones, and above them big, bright green eyes. Those brilliant eyes are distant, her smiles elusive, beautiful. For all her loveliness, she is built like a bird: elegant in her own way, but entirely too thin. Because of her weight, perhaps, she moves lightly, each step graceful and airy, effortlessly so.

Personality: Caprice loves her life. She loves her god, and her faith, finding peace and fulfillment most rarely can claim. She loves the art she creates, the fabrics that slide through her fingers reminding her of the threads and fabric of life itself. She sees her creations more as prayers than functional garments, trying to capture the essence of a person within a commission. She is as kind and cruel as anyone can be, but is careful to protection the reputations of her patrons. She's practical, despite her fanciful thoughts of faith and humanity, truly believing one can work in the world and be close to the divine at the same time. Her fatal flaw, however, is pride, and she becomes rather... cross if someone disrespects her work, or seems callous about the gods.

Background: Caprice often receives praise as being one of the most promising talents in tailoring from the Lyceum, but she has never felt quite comfortable with the assessment. She is, foremost, simply an artist who demonstrates her talents by weaving fabrics into stunning fashions as her chosen medium of expression. From a very early age, she felt called to be one of the chosen of Jayus, feeling a spark of inspiration from the Prince of Stories. Even as a child she would idle by shrines of Jayus and toy with dyes and clothes, working ever more elaborate colorations and blends of fabric. As a young woman, her talent was quickly recognized, and at a very young age she has been given the immense honor of being appointed the tailor of House Velenosa. Caprice is fully aware that her position might well be one of the most coveted of any tailor in all of Arvum. The Lyceum are the height of fashion for the entire Compact, after all, and House Velenosa is the height of fashion for the Lyceum. But the knowledge does not trouble her unduly She is, in her opinion and without any feelings of conceit, divinely inspired.

  • Name Summary
    Aaron A fellow tailor, searching for inspiration. She has an obviously curious mind, and I find it impossible not to answer her varied, probing questions. Truly, she has the gift of a soul easy to converse with, and I look forward to another opportunity to do so.
    Agostino It was refreshing to find that one of the most renowned artists in the city was so down to earth and fun to talk to. It was a pleasure to answer questions for her and help her understand what was going on.
    Anisha Mistress Caprice of the storied Artiglio line. Pleasant, knowing, and friends with, it would seem, all the right people. I shall enjoy seeing her art spread along the fine folk of Arx. Mayhaps I'll even find myself wearing some of it...
    Apollo She's got a definite thirst to improve her craft, and an enviable understanding of her own limits.
    Audgrim She is a nice person, I can tell. The sort of genuine nice that gets under your skin and makes you question your own life. NOt saying that is a bad thing, though.
    Baldessare Anyone who doubts Caprice can hold her own in multiple fields would be a fool. Her art is superb. Her wit is sharp. Her humor fantastic. She is, in a word, superlative. And I will duel anyone that says otherwise.
    Baz She dies pretty good. Only broke character once. But the lines were right and I owe her.
    Cassimir A perfectly polite woman with an inquisitive and sharp mind. I look forward to seeing her craftsmanship at work.
    Cesare The new Guildmaster and a fellow Disciple is every bit as vibrant and lovely as you'd expect she would be. Nobody I've met has anything but the most complimentary things to say about her skills, and my first meeting with her entirely lived up to their kind words. She seems to have the dedication and skill to handle this new mantle with aplomb.
    Cristoph We're to meet for dance lessons, eventually! By all means a gracious, beautiful woman that's clearly talented and with a number of interests.
    Delilah Her works are the stuff of wonders, highly spoken of, eclipsed only by the talents and charm of their makers herself. Delightful company at a busy meeting, I hope to know her better.
    Desma Though we didn't talk long, I am left with the impression of a woman of intelligence and style. A sense of humour too, which is always a welcome thing.
    Dio A gifted artist, whose company and conversation is a sincere pleasure.
    Domonico Respectful but with a keen sense of humour. I approve.
    Drake An artist... whose canvas is silks. I imagine, if she takes custom orders, she must keep very busy in that line of work. She has a good curiosity to learn about her potential clients, so she clearly cares about results.
    Duarte She seems a living embodiment of artistry. Her eye is keen. Her talent is undeniable. Jayus smiles upon her and, as her inspired patron, I shall see to it that so will the whole of Arvum.
    Elizabetha How utter my delight at discovering such a gem! Mistress Caprice weaves art nearly as radiant as she. I cannot wait to work with her in pushing each other to our artistic limits!
    Esme The best tailor that has ever existed in the Southern Area. I am in awe of everything she designs. We are sure to be the best of friends.
    Evaristo She wrote the absolute BEST song about winter in a minute and sang so lovely, and now she's a member of the Bard's College. Also, her clothes are amazing.
    Fidel She must be good. I had not been in her shop five minutes before it was being overrun by others. I'll have to invite her to Charon next time to have a quieter talk.
    Gawain Well-mannered and easygoing, with a great sense of fun when being purloined to be taken to somewhere at random. I'm not sure that she likes horses, though.
    Giada Quick and incisive with a good sense of humour. What else is there to ask for?
    Giorgio A gifted crafter within the city. She truly seems to have an innate gift when it comes to her designs. It must take a special person to be able to see such things.
    Graziella Such a talented artist and with a very warm welcoming presence; I'm glad we wandered into the same midnight meeting of the minds.
    Haakon A mainland lady, fond of alcohol and attire. Witty enough, though a bit odd.
    Hadrian I always love a good negotiation, so finding someone who's both eager to engage in them and possesses a talent for working toward a mutually beneficial deal? Is a wonderful occasion. What makes it even better is when the company sharing in the negotiation is as charming as the negotiation is wonderful.
    Harlex She has a fine eye for detail. I would expect nothing less. Captivating. Not one I'd mind spoiling.
    Ilira As artful in form as what she crafts, Caprice can hold the attention of a room without effort. I mean to make a point of crossing her path and lingering there for a while, when we've both the time.
    Jan She does nice work with that charcoal. Art can be a powerful form of propaganda, I'll have to bend her ear about making me something for the Corsairs.
    Jasmine Mistress Caprice was met through business; I had duskweave and she had talent. But during the final fitting I did come to find that she was very pleasant with conversation and shrewd with business. I'm sure she'll go very far in Arx or anywhere else she desires to be.
    Jyri About half a year ago, I just wandered into this shop in the Lycene ward and it was just something about the place - I decided to order my new tunics from it. That's one of the best decisions ever made. Still, it took awhile to meet the owner herself, but glad to finally have done so. She's welcoming, pleasant and professional.
    Kaia Such a fashionable woman with gorgeous copper hair! I heard from Esme she's a famous tailor of the Lyceum. I must seek her out again. Now that I think about it, I do think Thea mentioned her as well! I must see her designs. Fashion demands it!
    Kastelon Well-dressed, likely a rich merchant, but hungry.
    Kia Messere Artiglio is acquainted with Akamos, so I am determined now to grill him on their friendship. She offered condolences on the passing of Countess Magnotta, which was kind of her. I shall have to find out the name of her tailor. She dresses beautifully, if a little too Arvani for my own personal tastes.
    Leonel One of the more enchanting women that I've had the pleasure of sharing wine and good conversation with. I'll find her shop, and soon, and then we'll see about that challenge of hers.
    Lianne Articulate and insightful. Temperate. Willing to pursue interesting conversation on unfamiliar topics. Keeps good company.
    Llewella Mistress Artiglio has a deft hand with many forms of art, truly one who has enjoyed the blessings of Jayus in her life. Yet she does not come off as anything but sweet and sincere. I cannot recommend her company enough.
    Lorenzo A talented crafter and pleasant company. I'm not quite sure why she took such an interest in my wardrobe... was it just professional curiosity, or something more?
    Mabelle The talented Lycene seamstress. Truly they should be called artists. I look forward to have her stitch for me.
    Martino There is a delightful shade of little flirt in the quality seamstress. An eye for fashion, a tongue for it to, she speaks so freely of what would look utterly fantastic upon me and others.
    Medeia An even more keen observer than I am. I'd be wary if I didn't find her company so appealing.
    Miska Mistress Caprice is a bright figure in Arx. Her smiles are radiant, her business sense is on point. I am looking forward to my next engagement with her.
    Nina As a craftswoman she needs no introduction. I always love meeting more people with a flare for fashion! But best of all, she enjoys a bit of dance as well!
    Orland My Lord Count speaks highly of her and now I know why. It's all true!
    Orrin A dedicated member of the Artiglio family, she seems to know a lot about her vocation, yet is still eager to learn more. I admire this kind of hard work and I hope I can help her in this quest of becoming a better tailor.
    Pasquale I have a remarkable knack for saying things that upset or distress her but I rather like her all the same.
    Piccola The first time I actually met Goodwoman Artiglio was on a mission to Granato for the Marquessa of House Igniseri. We did not get to talk much, but I was able to appreciate a side to her I never expected. Still, it is impossible to overlook her hair.
    Poppy Quiet but seems kind.
    Porter I've been to her shop before, but not recently! I should probably go soon. Especially with word of my fake cobbler business taking the city by storm! I can appreciate someone who gets in on a joke. Sir Cobbler indeed.
    Quenia It seems this remarkable tailor and I have much in common, and I am looking forward to working with her on several projects.
    Raimon Artists dare that ineffable border, right at the edge of what - may - be - known - in - words. Betimes, they bring back inspirations. These may be hard to understand. But Caprice's words seem well - worth that effort!
    Raziel Met briefly, when she was obviously distraught over what she had seen. While she seemed to be in good hands when I left, I hope that should we meet again, she will be in a better place, both in body and spirit.
    Renata A supremely talented dress designer that knew exactly what I was looking for. I very much hope that she'll accept more commissions from me going forward, and perhaps we'll have another adventure in teas too!
    Ripley The world is a better place for the astonishing Caprice. A sister through nebulous means, she is a sight for sore eyes and a balm for the heart.
    Romulius A commoner with a great deal of charm - though, it is an altogether different charm than one might expect a Lady of higher birth. Fearless, and talented.
    Rosemary A good connection to make. She might be too busy for me right now but I'm sure we will have dealings in the future. Even if it is just referals and drinks- I rather like this watering hole.
    Rowynna An accomplished artist with whom I shared coffee and conversation. She's favoured by my cousin for her inspirational designs and advice where clothing is concerned, so it's highly likely I'll be deferring to her for help with my own wardrobe.
    Ryhalt A savvy business woman who offers drinks in her clothing store. I approve!
    Sabella Mistress Caprice is pure light and sunshine and I absolutely adore her! As a fellow Disciple of Jayus I can see us running all kinds of events and programs at the Shrine! She is utterly delightful!
    Samira The rarest and most treasured friendships are those which weather the worst sort of storms and remain steadfast through it all. And beyond that, Caprice Artiglio is kind, inspired, talented. I'm grateful to count her among my most trusted friends.
    Sasha A brilliant seamstress who I always go to first whenever I have a design needed to be brought to life.
    Sebastian She has a unique insight that speaks of a soul touched by Jayus. For that, I'm pleased to work with such a talented artist to bring her skill to greater heights. She's certainly one to watch out for, and I plan to keep a close eye on her work from now on.
    Sirius At first sight I thought it was a cat that passed me by, just a few meters behind me. A shadow that moved without sound. I heard her before I saw her; a voice, more fetching than I have encountered in some time, came drifting past the pews. While a lament might have been more suited to this sepulchral and ever-changing locale, her instilled meanings felt more like confidence, hope. Perhaps less a ray of sunshine then, more like a bolt of lightning. One must beware of these artists, they can surprise you in all sorts of ways.
    Svana Caprice Artiglio; a beautiful name that rolls off the tongue, just like her clothes compliment her personality and all else about her. She is fast on her feet with ideas and inspiration. Together, we could be dangerous.
    Tanith A skilled tradeswoman, Crafter, and someone my mother holds in high regard; -that- is saying something.
    Thea Nice to see Messere Caprice back in the city. I'm happy to hear she's been busy. She does amazing work!
    Valerius does not hold themselves as many commoners do, possibly due their interactions as a seamstress with nobles. Either way, a lovely sight that I would happily hold and not "duck" from.
    Venturo Charm runs in the Artiglio family, and this woman? Is no exception. She has the Three W's: Wily in business, Witty in humor, Whimsical in her passion for stories.
    Vincenzo By all accounts, she's the competition in Arx, but then again, it's more then big enough for all of us. She's so very pleasant, as well and I can't wait for further conversation.
    Vitalis A remarkable talent, I was glad to get to know her more on the trip to Bravura.
    Vittorio Funny, beautiful. That hair on her head like a burning flame.
    Wylla Caprice is an impeccably dressed joy, and a font of curious new ideas. I always enjoy her visits to the shrine and our conversations together.
    Zakhar A very skillful and patient teacher
    Zoey A young designer stretching her wings.
    Zyxthylum Someone who appreciates the art. It was a good day to take a walk I think.
