There is something feline about this lady, from her light step, to her quiet confidence. She is tall and lean, perhaps a little on the underfed side rather then delicate and lady like, which lends her grey eyes a look of slightly feral hunger. Her long ginger hair is just as often haphazardly pinned as it is artfully styled. Like wise her rose petal soft mouth is just as likely to unfurl in a serene smile as it is an epic sulk.
Thorn is a house cat of a woman who is firmly entrenched in the moment she is inhabiting. She can get lost simple experiences, such as the texture of a new cloak or the smell of a flower, though just as easily could be moved to crush said flower or tip a glass off the edge of a desk just for that experience as well. Thorn very rarely speaks of the past and is terrible at organization or anything that requires planning but her ease and tendency to savor what is happening around her lends well to playing hostess or being an excellent listener.
No one's entirely sure where the Fidante ward came from, how long she's been with Fidante or even who named her. Even amongst the nurses and tutors there's some conflicting opinions, some swear they recall the little red head as an infant, others swear they can't recall her smaller than 4 or 5. The family too has scattered memories of Thorn, as someone who's always been and yet often been absent. Despite that, no one seems to have ever given much thought to it, and in fact when one does to dwell on Thorn's timeline they find themselves endlessly distracted or interrupted from doing so.
As best as anyone can recall for the last few years she's been wandering around Tor, disappearing for a few months at a time, or perhaps simply forgotten about for such stretches. What was surprising was Thorn's recent arrival in Arx as no one in the family can ever really recall her ever being anywhere but Tor. She's never provided any particular explanation for her departure from the city state or how long she intends to remain in the Compact's Capital, it is simply what is now for Thorn
