LAVINIA OF THE FLAME
"I begged you to hear me, there's more than flesh and bones,
Let the dead bury their dead, they will come out in droves,
But take the spade from my hands and fill in the holes, you've made"

A warm dark blue. Hair:

A serene and calm countenance. Lavinia is honest and this includes her body language and expression. At a glance one can tell if Lavinia is thrilled, sad or about to burst with anger. It is especially easy to tell if Lavinia is completely out of her element and is angry, she shifts and it’s obvious she is uncomfortable with the emotions that are running through her.Fashion Sense:
Lavinia pays little heed to what she wears, as her handmaidens dress her in what’s appropriate for the occasion. However, she does very much enjoy wearing jewels in her hair.

No skills with weapons or ability to physically defend herself from possible attackers. Neither can Lavinia ride a horse nor can she swim – this, however, does not mean that she dislikes horses or water.Magic:
Shadowbinder. Overall Personality:
Lavinia is quiet and reserved, preferring to interact with a few close friends rather than a wide circle of acquaintances. Her polite and reserved exterior can at first make her difficult to get to know, however it is obvious that she is a sweet, if harmless, girl. With her friends, Lavinia enjoys conversation, her good humour and innocent charm shining through. Lavinia is naturally disposed to like people and avoid any and all conflict, making her pleasant company. Generally she shies away from people who are likely to cause conflict in her life or those who are naturally critical. She’s sensitive and can easily be pushed to tears by criticism or conflict. She easily turns a blind eye to things that might make her upset if they are trivial or something that a friend does.
She follows her heart not her head. If Lavinia gets angry she may have an outburst, making an argument based on nothing but emotion even though she tries to pretend it is fact. In conflict situations, Lavinia places little importance on who is right and who is wrong, instead focusing on the way that the conflict makes her feel. This trait sometimes makes her appear irrational and illogical in conflict situations. She can never just tell someone straight up that they’re wrong and she cannot manage to scold someone.Personality Quirks:
She had a tendency to touch people in familiar and affectionate ways, even though they may be strangers to her.
Both her parents belonged to the Temple of R'hllor. Father – Amadeus/ Mother – Verona/History:
Born from the union of a Red Priest and a Red Priestess, Lavinia always knew that she was destined to serve at the Temple of R'hllor. She was raised in the Temple and has led a devout life for as long as she can remember. Lavinia had always had a gift for shadowbinding and was able to fit herself into the rank of High Priestess at the age of eighteen. Currently she has fled Asshai after seeing terrible things in the flames - she hopes to avoid the destruction of her home.
