Sianlyn Sand (shiAN-lyn, with the “shiAN” slurred)
Age: 19, almost 20
Weapons: spear, bow, knives
God: the Seven, the Warrior
History: The natural daughter of Ser Anthros Dayne and Samaryn Sand, Sianlyn has connections to two noble houses: House Dayne and House Martell. Anthros’ older brother, Lord Aldric Dayne, is the Sword of the Morning and the Lord of Starfall, while Samaryn Sand is the beloved natural daughter of Prince Modrin Martell and Mellaria Sand.
Samaryn Sand was slain a year after her daughter’s birth when returning from a visit to her father, and Ser Anthros drank himself to death three years after Samaryn’s death. It was left to Lord Aldric to see to his niece’s care, and that Anthros’ final wishes were carried out – that Sianlyn be trained in arms so as to avoid Samaryn’s fate.
Though he could have tossed Sianlyn aside, Aldric was a kindly man, and he raised Sianlyn side by side with his eldest daughter, Elsha, a girl two years younger than her bastard cousin. When Elsha was betrothed and later wed to Lord Jeriken of Godsgrace, Sianlyn was one of her companions at the wedding. Elsha gave her three lavish parting gifts: a bow carved from goldenheart, a knife made of Valyrian steel with a dragonbone hilt, and a silver-grey sand steed.
Sianlyn remained her companion until Elsha bore her first child. At that time, Sianlyn was summoned to Prince Modrin, her grandfather. The Prince gave her three more gifts – a new spear, a shield, and a sandsilk cloak, and asked her to go in search of information of the other six kingdoms of Westeros, fearing that troubles might threaten Dorne. Bored, for her cousin had no more need of her, Sianlyn accepted.
Appearance: With dusky skin and lustrous black hair, Sianlyn resembles most of the population of Dorne. However, Sianlyn also has the famous violet eyes of House Dayne, though hers also has a faint tint of blue, legacy of Samaryn Sand. Sianlyn is tall, though slender, and like her mother, has a proud but beautiful face… though unlike Samaryn, Sianlyn’s smile conceals knives.
Personality: Like most Dornishmen and women, Sianlyn had a quick temper and quick wits to match them. Although she can be at times arrogant, she is also canny and intelligent. Though she appears to be talkative, Sianlyn examines each word before they pass her lips, and there are often barbs behind innocuous-seeming words. Most people underestimate her, lulled by deceptively innocent eyes and smooth smiles, but she will draw a blade as easily as she smiles. Like most bastards, Sianlyn has an iron core backed by determination and stubbornness, a trait that has stood her well in the past and will most likely continue to in the future.
First one, Enishi

Violent from an early age he first killed at 14 when he tried to steal a mans purse and was noticed, the blade intended to cut leather cut the man's neck. This happened in a backalley and he was never caught. He continued this life untill the age of 18, when he joined the town watch, he was trained in the use of a sword and became content with his new life where he could get hot meals and have some authority despite being base-born. At 21 his life changed. When sent after outlaws hiding in the wood he and several others raided an inn where the patrons were thought to have been harboring the men they sought. The incident is somewhat shrouded till this day but Arron was accused of the rape of a noble's daughter who was staying at the inn, mistaking her for the patron.
He was sentences to be hanged, but managed to avoid this by taking the black. So from then he has been a grudging man of the nights watch at castle greyguard.
Appearance: Arron is a scraggy man with long and dirty nut-borwn hair, blue eyes and a hard face, little improved by his beard. He stands straight and stubborn, well muscled but fast. On the wall he wears the usual blacks, ringmail and fur, with his swordbelt at his side and his bow and quiver on his back.
Personality: There has aways been a bit of spite in Arron, in early life he was looked down on as a bastard, and the wall was always too cold, with too cold a lifestyle, the onyl time he had contentment was with power in the town watch at Gulltown, but that was short lived. All this has lead to him being resentful and distrusting of most things.

Weapons:Bastard Greatsword, Dirk
History:Mayce was the bastard son of Hoster Frey and a whore from Mole's town that Hoster brought back with him. He had a disfiguring scar from an early age because his uncle hit him with a lance while jousting. He was greatly disturbed by this and was driven to madness.
At age 12 he found a dirk in his father's bed and he used this to kill his uncle. This marked him as an abomination to all as a kinslayer. He detached himself from his family and fled the Twins.
At age 23 he made his first greatsword and named it "Bastard" for obvious reasons. This sword stood by him as he used it to help exterminate the children of the forest.
At age 31 he traveled north to winterfell and swore fealty to the king which he promptly broke by raping his daughter. He fled Winterfell the night of his trial and traveled to the far north where he murdered 3 night's watchmen and fled to the wild. He was out of the common eye for 4 years and is only now just returning.
Appearance:Mayce is lean, but incredibly strong so as o lift his sword. He has matted, dirty hair from lack of cleaning and deep crimson eyes. He is broad in the shoulder and he has a pensieve face, marred with various scars.
Personality:He is a quiet person but prone to violent mood swings. Otherwise he rarely smiles and is constantly somewhat cold towards people

Name : Annika Lannister
Gender : Female
Age : 25
Weapons : Dagger, bow and arrow
Alignment : No one really knows...
Height : 5'10"
Kingdom : Casterly Rock (Lannister)
History : When King Lorren of the Rock took Lady Jeane of House Lefford as his wife, his only male cousin, Duncan, went along as part of his entourage and spied Lady Jeane's cousin, the beautiful Lady Aria. Love blossomed, soon enough, and manifested in the form of a royal wedding and a girl- child named Annika Lannister not long after.
Annika was born a few minutes before midnight, after hours of painful labour on her mother's part. Word has it that owls were hooting by the dozen at the time of her birth - hooting owls at midnight were regarded as a bad omen by the people of the Rock. Aria refused to abandon the child, though, despite pleas from her maester, and insisted on growing the child up as her own.
As years passed and Annika grew from a babe into a beautiful young girl, the omen was forgotten by all (except the maester) and people regarded Aria's choice as wise - especially since she had suffered two miscarriages after Annika. They loved the sweet, gentle Aria Lannister, for she was a rare jewel among the thorns, and felt pleased that she had at least one daughter to love and call her own. Aria, feeling happy that she was loved by the people, made up her mind to train Annika in the womanly arts and archery, to give the people the lovely daughter they so desire.
When Annika was 15, arrangements were made by her father and King Lorren to betroth her to Jaesin Lannister, heir to Casterly Rock. However, Jaesin refused to be betrothed to her, choosing instead to focus on knighthood (his father eventually gave in, seeing how knighthood was important to his child). Another attempt to betroth her to the younger son, Jonn, was also in vain, as Jonn went against his father's wishes and married a Crakehall.
Since then, Annika has born a grudge against the ruling Lannisters for denying her a throne, and shows it by refusing to interact with them, instead choosing to remain locked up in her chambers. Till news of the invasion crisis, she did not come out except to attend her mother's funeral. When hearing of Aegon and his invasion, though, she stepped out of her room for the first time in many years to the cries and shouts of ecstatic people. What they don't know, though, is that a flame within Annika is waiting to show its heat...
Appearance : Annika has the features of a Lannister - tall, with lustrous golden hair cascading down her face and emerald eyes, as well as pouty red lips and a narrow oval face. Her complexion is slightly darker than most Lannisters', though, being caramel instead of pale like her mother's.
Personality : Annika is like a chameleon - she changes the way she speaks to people whenever she sees a benefit in doing so, and she can blend in to many different situations to worm her way out of trouble. She is the complete opposite of her mother - while her mother was gentle, caring and straightfoward in terms of thinking, Annika is strong-willed and cunning in unfathomable ways...
