| Name: Yoranda Natuvia Garmold | Age: 18 | Gender: Female | Sexuality: Straight | Height: 4'6" | Weight: 105lbs |

Appearance:
Standing at approximately four feet and six inches in height, Yoranda weighs only about 105 pounds. She has lightly-tanned skin and her build is slender. She has long, wavy dark hair that comes down just past her shoulders. Yoranda has large, round brown eyes, arched eyebrows, and a petite nose. She, like the rest of her family, sports full lips. Yoranda's outfits are less modest than her twin as her focus is more on style, and she can often be seen in a variety of pieces - skirts of all lengths, trousers with tall boots, blouses, tight-fitting tops, sweaters, anything she wishes to wear. The twins always wear a pair of matching golden rings with green stones in them that their older sister Barynn made for them.

Personality:
Yoranda is perky, vibrant, upbeat, bubbly, and full of life. She has a tendency to be a bit loud and she loves to socialize. She is the type to strike up a conversation with a random stranger completely out of the blue. She loves to sing, and even when not performing, will sometimes just randomly sing for the fun of it. She loves dancing, chatting, and shopping. Yoranda can be a bit naive compared to her sister, however, and it is often Unarelle who will pull her sister out of situations that she's afraid may escalate. While Unarelle is dependent on Yoranda for socialization, it's Yoranda that's dependent on Unarelle for common sense. Yoranda has a tendency to be a flirt and will rarely back down from the opportunity to hop into bed with an attractive man. She hopes one day to fall in love, settle down, and have children, but for now, she is simply living life and having fun.

History/Bio
Yoranda and her twin sister, Unarelle, are tied for the position as the second-youngest of the eight Garmold children. They exhibited opposite personalities even from infancy, with Unarelle being a quiet baby who was easy to care for and Yoranda being a loud, demanding baby that drained all the energy of their parents. From early childhood, Yoranda demonstrated a passion and talent for singing, so her parents decided to enroll her in lessons. Her teachers quickly recommended that Yoranda should train for the bard's trade, and her parents agreed. When the twins were four years old, Yoranda fell ill and Unarelle spent all her time with her sick sister. The healers never could quite figure out what was wrong with her and could do little more for her than treat her symptoms. Eventually, Yoranda got better of her own accord.

Over the years, Yoranda has had several random episodes of sickness. Each time, her twin has been right there at her side. They still do not know what has caused it, only that Yoranda's sickness may be what's given her the vibrancy and love of life that she has. At sixteen, Yoranda became romantically involved with a boy from the settlement. He took her virginity, and while Unarelle was disappointed with her twin for giving up her virtue so early and so easily to someone with whom she knew it wasn't going to last, Yoranda was far from disappointed. Since then, she has dated and slept with a few different men including him - all of them multiple times over a period of time, and she's never been involved with more than one man at any given time.

Now, at eighteen, recent events are causing immense change in the lives of the twins. With two of their older siblings - Barynn and Istrain - having both left Bhagh-Nernwahrum to pursue lives on the surface, other families are beginning to look upon the Garmold family name as somewhat shameful. In an attempt to patch things up with the rest of their colony and preserve their good name, their parents have agreed to an arranged marriage for Unarelle to a young man from a family of high rank. He's had feelings for her for years, but she never reciprocated because she always thought he was an ass. Now, she has little choice. Hoping to save her sister and knowing that she'd easily be able to please the man and be a good wife, Yoranda even volunteered to take Unarelle's place and marry him, but he was insistent that it was Unarelle he wanted.

Frightened and devastated, Unarelle does not wish to marry this man. Yoranda has had to make a hard decision now and she has decided to take her twin and leave Bhagh-Nernwahrum in order to escape the arrange marriage. Their plan is to take all their savings and venture to Veritas Isle, where they know their older sister Barynn lives and they know she will take care of them until they figure out what to do with their own lives.

So begins...

Istrain let Haera help him up to Birger's room. He calmly let her take his shirt off, giving her a slightly goofy smile the whole while. He briefly glanced downwards when her fingertips touched his body, again feeling the fire of need at her touch. He was disappointed when she stood up, and even more disappointed when she started to leave. "Haera, wait," he said quickly, gazing after her before patting the spot beside him on the bed. "Come sit with me a moment. Just a moment."

Yoranda giggled a bit at his comment, putting her hands on her hips. "I think the real question here is what woman wouldn't," she replied casually with a slight smirk. When he asked her where she was staying tonight, she thought it over for a moment. "I'm not sure," she said finally. "We stayed at Barynn's shop last night with her. Istrain was supposed to put us up in a hotel room but obviously he's a bit preoccupied. I might just go grab Una and we can sleep in his hotel room. He's obviously not using it." She couldn't help but to be curious as to where, exactly, Birger was going with this question.

Haera stopped and looked back at him. A small smirk appeared when he patted the bed and she nodded. "Okay." She said and walked back over, putting her bag down, and went sit next to him. It was a bit quiet between them for a moment and she looked over at him and wondered what he wanted.

Birger looked down at her, "That's cute... you two sleeping together." He smirked and stretched, his shirt coming up to reveal his V. "Well, I should be nice and walk you to get her and then to the hotel since you can't really do much on that foot and if someone tries to do something you or her get hurt. Can't have that on my hands, now can I?" He asked before looking her over. She is just a kid, Birger. He thought before going put up the clean glasses.

Istrain was relieved that Haera came to sit as he'd asked, having half-expected that she'd just continue on her way out. There was a brief moment of silence between them as she sat down, because he knew that what he was about to do was probably very stupid and he needed to prepare himself somewhat. When he saw her turn her head to look at him, though, that was it. He lifted his arms, quickly bringing them up to rest on both sides of her head, and he pulled her gently towards him, pressing his lips against hers when she was close enough.

Yoranda laughed a bit at his comment about her and Unarelle sleeping together. "Right, because it's totally not normal for two identical twins to share a bed - I mean, we shared a womb for nine months, but anything beyond that is definitely weird," she joked with a shake of her head, though her cheeks proceeded to redden slightly when he stretched and she saw the muscle definition peering out from beneath his shirt. Well, damn. At first she opened her mouth to speak, but then she closed it, needing a moment to catch her breath and find the words. "Yeah, sure. That would be appreciated," she said finally, offering him a small smile and mentally chastising herself, reminding herself that that this was her boss.

Haera froze for a second before kissing him back. A part of her had been wishing he would kiss her and another had hoped he had forgot about it. She gently cupped his own cheek softly, deepening the kiss hungrily. Then it snapped, He is just high and desperate for a lay. She thought and pulled away. "I have to go." She said, the words getting a bit stuck in her throat before getting up and leaving him there. She went out the back way and went home.

Birger smirked a bit when he caught her staring and poked her nose. "I saw that." He chuckled and nodded his head towards the door, "let's go." He said and gently scooped her up, his hand sliding over her ass. His cheeks went red. "I am so sorry." He said, eyes wide.

Istrain loved the way she deepened the kiss, as if she was hungry for more. He knew it. She hadn't been totally honest when she'd said it was a lapse in judgment, because here she was, her hand on his cheek and her lips moving against his. Her head was fine today and she had nothing to worry about with him - she was kissing back because she wanted to. Ha! He let out a disappointed groan when she pulled away, though, and before he could protest to her comment of having to go, she was out the door. He sighed, shaking his head a bit. He laid down, groaning in pain as he did, and closed his eyes. This was going to be a long night.

Yoranda giggled a bit when he poked her nose, smirking up at him. "You saw nothing," she replied, and she nodded her agreement when he said 'let's go'. She allowed him to scoop her up and her brown eyes widened slightly when his hand touched the curve of her ass. She could see the shock in him as he apologized, and she could tell that he obviously hadn't intended to do that. "It's fine," she replied quickly, smiling. "Not like you meant it or anything." Not that she'd have much minded if he had. Or would she? She wasn't sure. She did have to keep reminding herself that he was her boss, though, so anything between them would be entirely inappropriate - not to mention that he was almost twice her age, and friends with her brother. The odds were stacked against her here.

He walked to the shop and went get Unarelle before going to the inn and lock picking the door because no one had the key. He told them goodnight and went back to the tavern. When the next day rolled around he woke up early to Haera shaking him telling him she was taking a job and was going to be gone for a few days before leaving. Birger groaned and went check up on Istrain.

((TIME SKIPPP))

It was getting to be almost evening when Yoranda sauntered into the tavern, a bright grin on her face. Her foot was pretty much healed up since she'd spent most of the day resting it. It still hurt a bit if she didn't step on it the right way, but it was otherwise fine. Strapped to her back was a handheld-sized harp, and in her hand she carried a violin case. She made her way over to the counter, carefully setting down the violin as she clambered up into a seat and grinned over at Bir. "Evening, boss," she said cheerfully.

Birger looked up from what he was doing and watched her clamber up into the seat. He covered his mouth with the back of his hand and chuckled. "Evenin, Yora. You and your brother... make it so funny getting in them chairs. It makes my day every time I watch." He said and looked at her instruments. "Ohhh super excited to hear these tonight." Birger said and gave her a menu. "So how was your brother? He was a pain in my ass this morning... hopefully me mellowed out later today."

Yoranda raised an eyebrow slightly as he laughed. "I didn't think it was that funny," she said, glancing down at the distance between herself and the floor a little self-consciously. She smiled a bit when he commented that he was excited to hear the instruments tonight, though. "I'm excited to play them! I play these, and then I play the lute, and I've been learning piano, though obviously it's been going a bit slow since, you know, I ran away from home and haven't been to any lessons since then," she said with a laugh and a shake of her head. "Istrain's...grumpy. Something about kissing Haera, I don't know. He didn't wanna talk about it much, said he was done with it and just wanted to focus on helping us out." She didn't take very long with the menu this time, almost immediately turning it back to him and pointing at what she wanted.

Birger sighed, "Sounds like a damn fourteen year old." He said before taking her order and giving it to the cook. He came back to her and smiled, "Is there anything you need for tonight?" Birger asked, looking down at her. He wondered if she really did enjoy that he touched her ass. The look she gave him when he stretched kind of said it all. Birger pushed the thought away, she was just a kid and he didn't do kids, but that damn aura of hers made him want to reach out and touch it again.

Yoranda laughed slightly, shaking her head. "Sure sounds like me when I was fourteen," she said with a shake of her head. "I was a bit dramatic back then though, honestly. I definitely don't miss those years," she added with a smile. She took the harp off her back, cradling it in her lap and beginning to delicately adjust the strings. Her fingers worked carefully, twisting each little knob into the exact position she wanted it before booping the string to make sure that it sounded as it should.

Birger looked at her, completely shocked. "Wait... wait... you aren't... what the hell is your age then, kid?" He asked. All this time Birger believed she had been fourteen, though now that he really thought about it his light flirting was making him a little sick and he downed a shot that he had just poured.

Yoranda raised an eyebrow slightly at how surprised he seemed to realize that she wasn't a kid. No wonder he'd been calling her kid. "Uh, I'm eighteen," she replied slowly. A slight smirk started to tug at the corners of her lips. "Why, how old did you think I was?" she asked, suddenly highly curious and all set to tease him mercilessly about it. Had he thought she was just a child? And he'd still hired her? Her faith in her own talent was skyrocketing.

Birger blinked, "Well... at least you are legal." He sighed. "I thought you were fourteen... hence why I was worried about touching your ass last night." He said before handing her her food and leaning over. "But, since you are eighteen and your brother says you like your ass being touched." He smirked, taking a piece of her food and popping it in his mouth before laughing and walking off to help a customer.

Yoranda's eyes went wide when he said that he'd thought her to be fourteen and then she burst out laughing. "You thought I was fourteen?" she asked, setting her harp down and all but doubling over in her chair. She straightened up, taking a moment to catch her breath as he set her food down in front of her. She was about to reach over and start eating when Birger leaned over, and the last of her residual laughter subsided immediately when she heard his words. Her mouth fell open slightly in shock before he laughed and left. She slowly turned around, her brown eyes following him as he walked away. "Does that mean you're gonna touch it?" she called after him jokingly, giggling a bit before turning her attention to her food.

Birger looked over at her from where he was, "Depends... you better play your best if you want me to." He said and the patrons laughed. He shook his head at her. She was indeed spunky and couldn't get over it. He loved it, kind of reminded him of Haera, minus the violence. He went around the bar collecting glasses and refilling drinks before going back over to her. "You're up." He said.

Yoranda laughed softly at his words. She couldn't help but to wonder whether or not he was actually going to follow through with it. This was, after all, only the third day they'd known one another, and the second day she'd worked for him. She wouldn't mind if he did, though. She had just finished eating when Birger came over to tell her that she was up. She smiled and nodded. "Off to play my best," she told him with a quick wink before grabbing her instruments, hopping down from her seat, and heading off to her spot.

((lil time skip))

She played the whole evening, alternating between vocals, instrumentals, and singing while she played. She couldn't sing along to the violin because of where it was positioned on her shoulder - she was, after all, very small - but she enjoyed singing along with her harp and playing instrumental songs with the violin. When she'd finished, she was very happy with her performance. She only hoped that Birger would be, too. It was all she could do not to smirk with satisfaction at the thought.

Birger waited on people while listening and when he could he would watch her. She was a natural and he could listen to her forever and never tire of it. He waved as the last patron left before locking up. "Ugh... that was a busy night too... dammit, woman... making me actually work." He said and smirked. When she had turned around to put her violent up and came over and gently slid his hand over her ass before giving it a gently smack. "Good work... kid." He smirked and walked off to start cleaning.

Yoranda quietly started packing up her instruments while Birger went to lock up. She was working on gently putting the violin in its case as he spoke, and she laughed without turning around. "Maybe it'll stay like that and you'll realize that you definitely can't handle actually running this place," she teased. She could hear him coming up behind her but thought nothing of it, figuring he was going to clear the table nearest hers. When she felt his hand come to touch her ass, she blinked in surprise, and she almost jumped when his hand gently smacked it. "Wish I could say the same for you," she replied with a slight smirk, shutting the violin case and standing up. "Have a good night," she added before heading out of the tavern, all set for a good night in the hotel room that Istrain had set her and Unarelle up in.

When Birger picked up Istrain, he protested - loudly - but it didn't help much. As soon as Birger set him down in the supply closet, he glared at the man while he shut the door. "What the fuck?" he asked before Birger started talking. He couldn't see now that the door was shut and it was pitch black inside, but he was sure that Birger was pissed. When Birger finished, Istrain sighed. "I told her I wasn't interested. When she asked why I was so grumpy, I said it was because I was getting stir crazy and wanted to be back on the road. Told her not to flatter herself and that it had nothing to do with her. Now, how are you planning on getting us out of here?"

Meanwhile, up front, the door had just opened and in came Yoranda, all ready for another fun day of work. This time she'd brought her harp and her lute, and she was a bit surprised - and somewhat disappointed - not to see Birger behind the counter. He was probably just in the back though, she figured, so she went and sat down to wait for him. She'd hardly stopped thinking about what had happened last night. She hadn't told Unarelle, of course, knowing that her twin wouldn't approve, but it had been hard to keep it to herself.

Birger thought about it and none of that would have made her look like that. "You are fucking telling me all of what you fucking said. I am not going to try until you fucking tell me everything. None of that... none of it would have made her look that hurt so I know you have had to have said something else. Even if you have to fucking say word from what what you said." He said angrily.

A lady who looked like Birger came in and around the bar, "Where the hell is that damn man?" She asked before looking at the young girl, "Uhhh you the kid who is singing and stuff right? Have you seen my brother?" She asked.

Istrain raised an eyebrow when he heard Birger's words. "That is all I said! She said she was sorry she kissed me, I said I was sorry I kissed her. I told her I was grumpy because I was sick of this fucking island. I told her not to flatter herself, I'm just stir crazy, and it had nothing to do with her. Then she got pissed and stormed off. That's literally all that happened, I don't know what more you're looking for."

Yoranda looked over at the woman who came in. She definitely bore resemblance to Birger, she thought - maybe a relative of some sort? She shrugged her shoulders. "I'm assuming Birger's your brother, and if I'm right, then no, I haven't seen him," she replied. "Then again, I only just got here. I'm sure he'll turn up in any time now, it's not like he'd leave this place unattended for long."

If Birger could see he would have grabbed him by the collar and shake him. He did growl though, beyond pissed. "Maybe you should fucking leave if you are just going to fucking pull this shit and then lie to me when I ask. Fucking bastard." He spat and felt around for the door before kicking it open. "Thank god that was a damn door and not a wall." He said, mostly to himself before walking out and saw his sister and the Yoranda. Right now he didn't feel like talking to any of Istrain's siblings. "Freja, keep the bar for tonight. I will pay you double. I am going out and find Hae." He said and she sighed loudly. "Fiinneee." She replied.

Istrain couldn't believe that Birger wasn't getting it. "I'm not fucking lying," he replied before Birger kicked the door open. He jumped slightly, not having expected that at all. He waited a minute to step out. He heard Birger talking to someone outside, asking them to tend the bar for him tonight while he went to find Haera. Istrain sighed before stepping out. He started to leave, but Yoranda quickly hopped down from her seat, leaving the two instruments sitting on the counter at her spot, and grabbed his arm. "Istrain, can I talk to you?" she asked. Istrain was about to tell her no, but he could see the concern in his sister's brown eyes and he sighed. "Sure," he replied, nodding towards the door. "Come on, let's step outside," he said, and Yoranda nodded, beginning towards the door with him.

Once outside, Yoranda glanced briefly after Birger to make sure he was gone before turning to her brother. "What was all that about?" she asked, and he raised an eyebrow.

"What?" he asked, and she sighed.

"He's obviously mad about something. He just kicked a door down. What'd you do?" asked Yoranda.

"Oh," Istrain said, frowning. "He's mad because I pissed off Haera. I told her I wasn't interested and-"

"Oh, come on, Istrain," Yoranda groaned, leaning her head back in disappointment. "We all know you are interested. You like Haera, you just-"

"Yora, drop it," Istrain said, a bit more firmly than he'd have liked. "She seemed to think that my grumpy mood was because of her, and I told her not to flatter herself. It's just been nothing but shit since I came here. I mean, being friends with Haera and Birger is fun and all, despite the constant fucking abuse about my height, but I'm bored as hell and I've got a little sister who never wanted kids who's fucking pregnant by an asshole, and-"

"I don't think Luther's that bad," Yoranda cut in quickly. "I mean, he's gonna take the baby off her hands, and he helped me with my foot. He was never anything but nice, you just don't like him because he got Barynn pregnant."

"And because he's an asshole," Istrain replied, shaking his head. "Look, Yora...it's nothing for you to worry about. You just worry about doing a great job at your new job - not that that's anything to worry about, because you're amazing at what you do - and let me deal with my relationship problems. Ugh. I can't believe I even have relationship problems to deal with."

Yoranda sighed softly, nodding. "Fine," she replied. "I'll see you later."

"See you," Istrain replied before turning and heading off.

Yoranda watched her brother go before turning towards the tavern and heading back in. She eyed the broken-down door of the supply cupboard before approaching the counter and looking up at Birger's sister. "Sorry, Birger said your name was Freja, right? I have a bit of extra time still before my shift starts. I could clean that up if you'd like, I know his job is a busy one and you probably won't have a chance until later," she said, offering a polite smile.
