The Dark Sun: Falling Star
Kathryn, Baroness of Kirksten
Kirksten's maiden auntie
She is as steady as they come, despite (or perhaps because of) her mother’s influence. She has always refused to marry, though that doesn’t mean she eschews lovers (and has taken many over the course of her life), but is infertile and prefers to raise her sibling’s and cousins’ children for the betterment of the House. If orphanages weren’t the epitome of that heresy, “charity”, she would likely be running one; as it is, she’s basically the House nanny. This does not mean that she’s soft or delicate, however; she is known to have battle scars.
In the year 310, she is 53 years old.
