Mora Ottavia Spadera
Quarterly gules and purpure, a gyno-sphinx couchant contourny within a bordure rayonny Or
The Honorable Lady Mora Ottavia Spadera has an identity which is a cross between cavalier and courtesan. She resides in the sunny Shire of Isles, and can generally be found at events on the rapier field or, formerly, carousing at the Inn of the Crimson Spade as one of its most dedicated patrons. On the field at Potrero War 2014, Mora was admitted to the Order of the White Scarf of Caid.
Mora was born and raised in Venezia, the eighth daughter of a former courtesan and her prosperous merchant husband. Rather than continuing to follow in her mother's footsteps, Mora did some traveling, and met Angus le Todde Mac Donnell while in Flanders. After deciding to wed, Todde and Mora have embroiled themselves in a variety of small business ventures, some of which take them regularly to Caid. They founded a merchant company, Calix Inundans with some other businessfolk, and can often be found doing business with the White Star while loitering at the Inn of the Crimson Spade.
Some of the details of Mora's childhood in Venice, and subsequent events, are recorded in the tale of The Young Girl and the Inn.
