Thirifane Rhivaldi

Lady Thirifane Rhivaldi is the Matriarch of House Rhivaldi; an ancient and powerful noble family of Caldera.

Lady Thirifane is a fetching, wealthy widow, who currently controls all Rhivaldi family interests, including several businesses and extensive land-holdings in the Rockdale region. As a result, she is the most sought-after bride within Caldera's noble society.

The Rhivaldi Family Curse

Sadly, despite her wealth and station, Thirifane and her family have experienced much tragedy in their lives. Ten years ago, her lord husband, a wealthy merchant named Delario, died of a strange, wasting disease.

Then, seven years ago, her older brother Jakob was murdered by his own wife; who then killed herself, causing one of the most infamous scandals in recent Calderan history.

Soon after, the couple's eldest daughter; Rachel, fled the city in her grief, and went to live in Sasserine, while the youngest daughter; Rhianon, was adopted by her aunt Thirifane.

As a result of these shocking events, it has become common gossip that Lady Thirifane and her entire family are cursed by the Gods.

Recently, she has taken on the responsibility for arranging the upcoming marriage between Lord Ochio Vhalantru and her niece; Rhianon.

Today, Lady Thirifane lives alone with her servants, in what is widely considered the most ostentatious display of wealth in Caldera; a lavish, multi-level mansion, adorned with ornate fixtures and several tall towers.
