Desdemona Despard
medium height, full figure, mases of midnight hair, flashing dark eyes. Elder daughter of the infamous "Admiral of Teach" Ruthven Despard and his wife, the sister of "Devil" Macaire. Grew up in Teach, fluent in Insular Indigene, from her family servants and Indigene playmates; fluent in French from her mother and uncle and education at an exclusive convent school in France (nominally Catholic, but not devout) followed by a finishing school in England. NOT presented at court, to her fury. Very flirtatious, but careful never to bend propriety too far, as she wishes to be accepted in elite Marland society.
Carries a small derringer and a hidden dagger and knows how to use them, but has never had to as yet.
