Duchess-Goth

“Oh, you’ll know this one, dearie! Don Lothario of Pleasant View – known as the Count, though he has no familial claim to any Countship of Pleasant View. There’s a dozen theories as to how he came by it, most of them concerning pirates or bandits or something romantic and flattering like that. Every lady in the court has her eye on him (and some of the men, if you notice the Worthington boy), but his hand is currently claimed by the Duchess Cassandra Goth – some whirlwind romance of course, but the sensible assumption is that the marriage is a quest for her title. Still, they make a most darling couple, I do declare.”

“Darling, if you don’t already know who this is, you had to have been living under a rock. The Duchess Cassandra Goth of Pleasant View is the most influential woman in Simalot. Part of that comes with the Goth name, of course, but the woman is an intellectual marvel. While she has no discernible magical talent, she is hardly detached from the magical world: she’s founded schools for the study of alchemical sciences at Simalot University, the Universidad del Fiesta, and even the Academie Le Tour. Now, I’m not well-versed in botany by any means, but I’ve heard tell that her cultivation of the Laganaphyllis Simnovorii is the envy of all of the alchemical spheres. She’s also engaged to the Count and the entire court is taking bets on whether or not he’ll actually follow through.”
