Thirifane Rhivaldi

Lady Thirifane is an important member of the House of Rhivaldi. She is responsible for the upcoming marriage between Lord Ochio Vhalantru and her niece; Rhianon Rhivaldi. Lady Thifirane is the only living member of her ancient house. She lives alone (discounting servants) in what is widely considered the most ostentatious display of wealth in Caldera; a multi-leveled, lavish mansion, complete with tall towers and pure opulence.

Thirifane, has had much tragedy in her life. Fifteen years ago, her lord husband, a wealthy merchant named Delario, died of a strange, wasting disease. Then, ten years ago, her older brother Jakob was murdered by his own wife, who then killed herself, in one of the most infamous scandals in recent Calderan history. The couple's eldest daughter Rachel, then fled the city in her grief to live in Sasserine, while the youngest daughter; Rhianon, was 'adopted' by Lady Thirifane.

Most common folk gossip that Lady Thirifane and her entire family are cursed by the Gods.

The Lady Rhivaldi; a fetching, wealthy widow, currently controls all family interests, including several business and large land-holdings in the Rockdale region. She is, therefore, the most sought-after bride in Caldera's noble society.
