Ysora Maritus arrived on Gateway in the fall of 504, seeking to acquaint herself with court life and make connections, in hopes of being made her father's heir to the lordship of Gwencalon on the Isle of Guardian. She succeeded in quickly becoming a well-known face around Gateway, making many friends among nobles and commoners alike, and acquiring not a few admirers. Among them, Eamonn Kilgannon, Baron of Crucible. The two married in mid-June, 505. Around the court, Ysora is known as a cheerful and friendly lady, with a ready smile and an easy wit. She is also cousin to the stern Soranus family from Ethos, on Draught, though whether or not she shares their Purist leanings is a matter of debate.
The second of four children to a long line of Marines and traders on one side and a rigid mother raised as a Lady of Ethos from Draught, Ysora was a spirited child determined to follow the military example set by her Lord father's people. She was briefly derailed by the death of her mother and some time spent on Draught, but in the end it only reenforced her desire for all things clattery and violent, with a side of alcohol. Guardian was home, and she was all too happy to return there.
It was all going according to plan until the matter of the bloody weresharks. Ysora did not so much walk away from the incident as cling desperately with her good arm to a plank and managed not to drown. Even a return to Draught was too late to giver her back full mobility - her left arm is a twisted wreck and she still walks with a limp. But the Soranuses did at least force her to seek out a return to a productive path.
That path has led her to Gateway in order to try out a new career journey. Master the more elusive elements of trade. Her original intention to become Lady Gwencalon never did quite come to fruition, though, when she instead became Baroness Crucible.

- A lullabye for Asha:
The itsy bitsy wereshark swam up the waterspout.
Out came marines and beat it on the snout
Up came the swords and smote it on the head
Now the itsy bitsy wereshark is well and truly dead.
