A Sampling of Tri Os Shire Folk...
Lord John-Carlos Lobo del Mar
good Gentles of Tri Os and beyond!"
This is Lady Enise, daughter of Oghuz the Bookseller, and officer of Arts and Sciences in the happy Shire of TriOs (may its blessings never diminish).
Enise was born in the year 1440 (as those in the West reckon the passage of the years) in the caravanserai of Samarkand, a city of scholars on the vast Transoxian plain. Though born in glittering Samarkand, and have dwelt in many fine cities between the Great Western Sea and the majestic Himalayas, in truth the road is her home, her spirit as light as a flight of birds.
Enise is the seventh child and only daughter of Oghuz the Bookseller (may his spirit find rest in the bosom of the Divine). As her father's only daughter, one fears she was much indulged. Oghuz, a scholar and lover of learning, insisted that Enise should be tutored alongside her brothers, though her mother did argue that too much learning was unattractive in a woman. Although her loved her mother most dearly and deferred to her in most matters, in this he would not be overruled. Thus was Enise introduced to the three great loves of her life: books, travel, and learning. In time, as the years grew heavy upon her father's shoulders, she took over the day-to-day dealings of his business, leaving him free to converse with the scholars who frequented their stall.
Of late, Enise has tarried along the warm and pleasant shores of the fair land of
Trimaris, in the Shire of Tri-Os. Here does she seek to perfect her skills of
cookery, music, dance, art, and letters, even as she continues to read and study
the languages, lifeways and traditions of the people she met upon her way.
Enise is always happy to converse over a glass of tea, and correspond with fellow
travelers and lovers of learning. You may leave a message for her here in this
most congenial meeting place, or write to her at:
