Lady Glesni is the eldest daughter of Lord Selivant, the Lord of Stirling Castle. Her mother died when she was very young, and Selivant gave Glensi to Lady Ade for tutoring. She learned the skills of a Southern Lady including the arts of courtesy and court intrigue. She learned how to read, write and count, so she could maintain her father’s lands. She also learned the names and banners of all her father’s neighbors and served as the Lady of the House in her mother’s absence.
Before she was even born, her father and Lord Pellandres made a solemn oath that their eldest would marry, forever binding the family together. Glensi was Selivant’s oldest and Pellandres’ eldest was his son, Gwinas. The two were betrothed when they were only six. She remembers her betrothed as a precocious young boy who called her “Frog.” She was not fond of him then, and she isn’t fond of marrying him now.
While she is 18 years old (and soon to be considered an “old maid”), Glensi has no interest in marriage. She loves running the house, managing the servants, keeping the peace with her father’s neighbors, but she does not want a husband. She feels a husband will take all those duties from her, subjugating her to the lowly role of “wife.” After being in charge of her father’s household for so long, she is unwilling to giving up those duties. She does not want to run someone else’s house and does not want to lose the authority she has as “Lady of Stirling Castle.”
