Nerezza has elegant arched eyebrows, topaz eyes and a classical nose. Her dark brown hair is long and straight, and is worn in a simple, pulled-back style held in place by some delicate strands of faceted crystal teardrops. She has tanned skin and a slender figure.
She is a bit over average height for a Human.
Nerezza grew up in the middens outside of the east gate of crossing the eldest daughter of a dirt poor and abusive family, she has 6 younger siblings. Her parents fostered competition between her and her siblings particularly amongst the younger of the group. They would fight over everything from sleeping arrangements to what little food and clothing was provided them. When Nerezza was 15 she left home and wandered for many years eventually becoming a guilded thief. To the best of her knowledge her birth family was killed during the Lyras invasion. A desire for strength and power lead her to the doorstep of the Dane family, and after months of training and discussion Nerezza pledged her loyalty to the family.

[The Raven's Court, Hallway]
Channels of green diamond sprout into lily pads and frogs upon the smooth marble walls. Tiny orbs of glowstone highlight the colorful jewels in addition to providing faint illumination for the dark, secluded corner. Black as an ocean abyss, the plush carpeting underfoot appears to extend forever downward into endless depths. You also see a glassy carved obsidian door with a sparkling crystal handle, a maple door carved with the figure of Morganae and a pure black obsidian arch carved with tendrils of climbing nightshade in sunken-relief.
Walls of glass diamond tile and a polished riverstone floor covered by a cream-colored sheepskin rug enclose this room. In one corner lies a mahogany four-poster bed, and near the bed sits a frosted glass table with a glazed blue clay teapot painted with colorful birds and a cup of rosehip tea on it. A gorgeous riverstone fireplace burns along the far wall with a hollow crystal statuette of a stunning horned maiden hanging above it. The room holds a lingering scent of nightshade. You also see a tall and slender butler, a high-backed mahogany parlor chair that is facing the table and an ornate carved mahogany wardrobe with an ironwork-framed mirror twisted in curlicues on it.
Outfit and Apartment Details
TAP: A cropped white leather jacket lined in ermine fur
LOOK: Carved crystal buttons fasten the jacket into place, its hem terminating mid-torso giving it a strikingly fashionable style. Turned cuffs and a deep cowl hood are graced with pristine white ermine lining, adding a touch of functionable warmth to the garment. Closer inspection of the buttons reveals a stylized rendition of the horned and nearly featureless maiden of the Dane family crest.
TAP: A jacquard satin corset sparkling with iridescent crystals
LOOK: Stiff boning creates the firm support system for this figure-shaping garment with the illustrious white fabric stretched tautly over the frame. Delicate nightshade blossoms woven in white-on-white tones swirl across the garment; each flower centered with a tiny faceted crystal that lends the design a dazzling appearance.
TAP: Some white leather calf boots with towering crystal heels
LOOK: Hand-stitched to fit like a second skin, the pristine white leather sheaths the wearer from toe to calf. Smooth polished clear crystal has been carved into delicate spirals forming the heels of these boots, designed to lift the wearer to a staggering height when worn.
TAP: A wide-brimmed straw hat accented with an elegant animite brooch
LOOK: Pale colored straw is tightly woven to create this large hat, the brim sagging along the edges under its own weight. Adorning the side of this simply styled hat, an exquisitely crafted nightshade blossom is bejeweled with dozens of crystals that glimmer brilliantly with iridescent hues.
TAP: A haltered sundress crafted from short layers of white gauze
LOOK: Fashioned from tissue-thin fabric draped over flesh-tone silk, the short garment flutters gently in the faintest of breezes. An animite brooch cast in the shape of a nightshade blossom fastens the halter-necked dress behind the neck with long strands of faceted crystals dangling down the wearer's exposed back.
TAP: Some strappy gauze-laced sandals with high wedge heels
LOOK: Straw-colored wood has been masterfully carved at a steep angle to create the base of these otherwise delicate sandals. Secured with a tiny animite buckle, long ribbons of pristine white gauze are designed to criss-cross the wearer's foot before wrapping thrice about the ankle.
TAP: A pair of fine animite loop earrings
LOOK: Three delicate hoops are nestled within each other in descending size, forming a pair of earrings. The trio of rings spirals around a tiny crystal pendant at the heart of the innermost hoop.
TAP: A glass diamond tile wall
LOOK: Beautifully cut frosted glass tiles are set in a diamond pattern in clean white mortar.
TAP: A frosted glass table
LOOK: A single piece of frosted glass sits atop a thick pillar of ivory marble. In the middle of the glass, a thin vein of marble snakes its way over the surface of the glass to join the pillar underneath, keeping the glass well in place.
TAP: A gorgeous riverstone fireplace
Look: Water-smoothed stones of differing tones of grey and red have been layered to form a large, round hearth fireplace. The riverstone base curves up to a fine mantle made from one large piece of greystone carefully cut to match the flowing style of the design.
TAP: An ornate carved mahogany wardrobe
LOOK: Delicate flowers decorate an elaborate labyrinth pattern carved along the corners of the wardrobe doors to form an intricate tangle of briar roses.
TAP: A tall and slender butler
LOOK: Tall and slender, the butler displays a classic style in his appearance. White-gloved hands peek out from the sleeves of a custom-fitted black jacket. A folded white cloth protrudes from a single pocket on the garment's front. A wide belt rings his waist, and pants sewn from the same material as the jacket complete the outfit. Though the butler has the appearance of a servant, his form wavers at times between fully solid to a garish green-tinged transparency.
TAP: A hollow crystal statuette of a stunning horned maiden
LOOK:The interior of the statue forms a long and narrow container that opens at the neck, lined with dark red satin to conceal any contents. Smoothly polished clear crystal has been carved into the form of a beautiful maiden. Closer inspection reveals that the facial features lack distinction; the eyes are slightly hollowed sockets, the nose is a barely perceptible bump and there is no mouth. Slender, downward sloping horns complete the unsettling image, curving in upon themselves to frame the face.
