Elyce belongs to:
Elyce is the nominal (ie political) leader of this group.
An amateur scholar and diplomat, she is highly intelligent, quiet and introspective.
Elyce is thrust into this situation by being amongst the lowest ranking members of the ruling class, as well as being versed in all civilized languages and cultures.
Elyce hopes to achieve an independence of sorts - from political intrigue, from the city/country of her birth, and from the traditional role of women in that society.
