Tall and blonde, with sparkling blue eyes, Hazel has a firm jaw and a warm smile. Her shoulders are square and her frame powerful rather than elegant, with the evidence of hard work and working hard writ large in muscle and bone. With one or two small scars across her face she's no obviously no stranger to weaponplay, and the callouses on her hands mark her as a swordswoman.


If Dame Hazel Helianthus were to ever take offence at a stone wall, those who know her would agree that it's even odds as to which would win. When she sets her sights on something this Knight generally doesn't stop until she achieves it - but that doesn't mean she cares little for the consequences. Everything she sets her eyes on is weighed, the consequences measured, and it's only after she decides that it's worth it that she brings her will to bear. And yet, despite everything, Hazel hasn't lost her sense of humour.


Born to one of the Isles' most traditional noble houses, Hazel knew early on that she wasn't going to be the proper young lady that tradition demanded. She studied law and diplomacy, of course - but she studied swordplay as well, watching her brothers' lessons and practicing with sticks, despite the family disapproval for those who stepped outside their appointed places. It all came to a head when in her teens, Hazel lost her temper, picked up a practice sword and gave her brother a humiliating defeat; refusing to be cowed by the threat of denoblement, Hazel left the Isles to make her own way in the world. As a commoner she took the rough with the smooth and trained with the Knights of Solace, though never took the Godsworn vows; after excelling time and time again, and demonstrating loyalty as well as skill during the battles of the Gyre War and at Bastion, she was invited to join the King's Own. The honour given a King's Own knight has persuaded her family to award her their name again, as even if she will never again be a Lady she is at least acknowledged as someone to be proud of across most of Arvum.
