Name: Lenora Nitawni (prefers Lena)
Lena also has a fascination with gold jewelry. When she isn't training she wears as much of it as she can. She is a little short for a knight, only reaching five foot four and some people think that gives her a disadvantage, but she doesn't really think that way. Most of the time she is dressed in her training gear, and being feminine is normally the last thing on her mind. However, for formal events she forces herself to clean up and act like a lady.
Equipment: A bow, quiver of arrows and a sword.
Skill Set: Lena is an exceptional fighter, and a great aim with her bow and arrow.
Strengths/Weaknesses: She is a great fighter, deadly killer, and a fantastic horse rider. However, she has a temper and it makes her irrational. She doesn't have the patience to sit and read or to sit and write. She barely has the patience to sit at the table after she has finished, waiting for everyone else to finish. She is always on the move, which, as many people have said, she is going to burn herself out soon and there will be nothing left of her to fight.
Lena is an all business type of woman. She is quiet most of the time, preferring to keep to herself, but she can be charming and polite. She has worked hard to earn the respect that she has gotten thus far, and she feels that she deserves respect. She knows she can fight as well as any man, and can charm any noble with a bat of her eyelash and she wouldn't give up what she has earned for anything. She is humble, loyal to her superiors, and her kingdom. She is generous to those who are less fortunate and at times she can have a sense of humor. She has a soft spot for children, and making her feel worse is the fact that she never settled down to have her own children. Her mother constantly nags about it, but Lena knows she has no time for children and refuses to give up her status.
Lena was born into a family of eight children. By the time her mother stopped having children, eleven had been born and nine had survived. As she was growing up she didn't know her family was lacking in certain areas. Their mother made sure that all of her children had clothes and shoes, even if she had to make them herself. Their father worked very hard to keep the children and his wife under the roof they had. Among the surviving children, Lena was one of the only two girls. The first girl was the first born, so the age difference was a large hurdle to get over, so she hung out with her brothers and took to riding horses bareback, brandishing a wooden sword and making a bow out of a twig from a branch. When Lena was sixteen, her parents were pushing her to marry, but instead she wanted to make her own life and run it herself so she set out to become a knight. The road was long, hard and very difficult. She proved herself time and time again as a swords woman and an impeccable marksman but she didn't receive the respect she desired until she felled an attempt to poison a knight in a higher position. Thankful for his life, this knight showed her the proper respect and the rest of the knights followed suit.
