Description: Ethereal would be an apt adjective to describe the young Wyrmguard scholar. Often mistaken as a potential twin to her cousin Damon, Bianca maintains a certain sort of irrefutable beauty not often found beyond ancient fairytales of Arx. Shock white hair, sylph-like stature and crystalline gaze all command attention when the woman enters a room.
Personality: Composed of ineffable poise and grace, her words laced with uncanny wisdom, and possessed of a calm disposition that seems capable of weathering even the worst of storms, Bianca Wyrmguard is always ready with a kind word or advice to those in need of it, putting a sharp and empathetic mind to work in helping the people around her. But while she is undoubtedly warm, it is a distant warmth. Bianca often exists at a remove from others, playing most of her private thoughts and feelings close to the vest, and rarely speaks about herself, preferring instead to focus on the needs of others. Behind all those layers lies a naturally pragmatic woman who nonetheless finds deep fascination in the human condition and is endlessly in passionate pursuit of new knowledge and new experiences.
Recent years, however, have seen a slow shift in Bianca's outlook and behavior, and her deep well of calm has been steadily coupled with a biting and incisive wit that has little tolerance for foolishness. Increasingly willing to embrace her own, personal ambitions, Bianca is implacable once she puts her mind to something -- to the point of an unfortunate tendency towards overworking herself; a fact that she will persistently disavow right up to the point she passes out in the middle of her adamant denial.
Background: Daughter of Daniel Wyrmguard, the almost unknown youngest brother of Marquis Denis Wyrmguard, Bianca maintained much of the same peripheral status to the Wyrmguard family that her father once had. Unlike his brothers, Daniel was a man of knowledge and chose to spend his life in pursuit of it. Unfortunately, that quest was cut very short as Daniel did not live past the age of twenty-four, survived only by his toddler daughter as Bianca's mother had passed presumably during the child's birth. Thankfully for Bianca, her father was able to deliver his daughter to the Oathlands and from there left specific instructions for her education and general future prior to the end of his life soon after.
Upon reaching the age of twelve, Bianca would be sent to study with the Mercies of Lagoma and choose her own path of study be it as a priestess or following in the footsteps of her deceased father. After a few years, the blossoming beauty made her decision and proceeded to depart from the priesthood and instead follow the pursuit of knowledge. While she adored her theological and medicinal studies, there was just so much more to the world. So much more that she couldn't wait to see and experience. And so at the age of eighteen, Bianca was granted a single guard/escort by House Wyrmguard to begin her travels outside of the safety of Blancbier and extend her knowledge and understanding of the greater world. Intermittently Bianca would return home to Blancbier to visit throughout her youth.
It was at the behest of her cousin, Lord Damon Wyrmguard, that she come to join some of the family centralized in Arx and no great secret that her desire to explore the Great Archive was her primary reason for her arrival in the city. Within a matter of weeks Bianca had gained the permission of Dominus Fawkhul to pursue further investigation into the lost art of Exorcism and from there she joined the discipleship of Vellichor in a more official capacity, first as a simple Scholar and following a Prelate. It was with Fawkhul's great betrayal and the elevation of Dominus Aldwin that her career within the Faith continued forward. After much internal searching and seeking the guidance of many of the Godsworn, Bianca stepped down from her role as Voice of House Wyrmguard and took her oaths to join the priesthood. Within her annointing ceremony and to the surprise of many, Bianca was named Aldwin's successor as Arschscholar of the Scholars of Vellichor.
Since then, Bianca continues her work as an icon of the Faith and representative of the discipleship she leads.
|Audgrim||Legate Bianca - knows her stuff. I must say it felt really good to have her with us, when at Cedar Vale.|
|Braith||The Legate is willing to share. That is the first step and she seems curious as to why I want to learn about her. But if she could only see herself the way the others of us do. A life led in a way I could never come to understand. But one I can appreciate. These passings of time should not be lost but remembered. Perhaps there should be a song that may remain for all to recall when the Gods have called her on. May that be a long time from now.|
|Ilira||A fine thing to meet the Legate for a second time. She is as ethereal and regal as I remember. So cool in looks, so warm in manner. She is beautiful and wondrous company.|
|Mabelle||There is more to the bubbly Legate than meets the eye. A fountain of knowledge and yet one able to empathize with the heart of others. Her presence is a boon.|
|Nigel||Legate of Creation. She seems to be a very kind soul. Wise beyond what I presume her years to be. She speaks as one who has lived in a position similar to my own and whose obligations led her away and toward another path completely. It is admirable. Perhaps one day I might be able to confidently name her as my friend.|
|Noah||This one. She's either really daft or really smart. We will have to see how that turns out in a bit. She has agreed to let me patron her though. Or patronize her. It's hard to tell where the line is.|
|Ryhalt||A faithful and good person.|
|Sebastian||Bianca has long been a source of information, inspiration and confidance for me, and I'm pleased to work with someone so sharp of mind and observation. The Faith could have no better an advocate.|
