Description

A young woman with an elvish youthful look about her. She has nearly luminescent pale skin, shining sky blue eyes, stands about 5'7" tall, and is approximately 122 pounds. Her hair is long and coppery red with a slight natural waviness.

Nearly ageless, she almost seems like she'll appear to be in her late teens all of her life. High cheekbones bones are naturally rosy at the apples and when she smiles they grow enough to make her prim little nose even tinier on her face. Her blue eyes as well are on the slight side so they nearly vanish whenever a smile graces her face, pearly if a bit skewed teeth sparkling. In the common feminine egg shape, her face has a majestic forehead but soft chin. With a fuller bottom lip than her top lip both are stained a lush fiery red with lip rouge. Much like the rest of her physique her mouth is thin but is curvy where it counts.

Background Summery

Jessilyn's mother was originally from the Gift. When it was found out that she had been raped and impregnated by a marauding wildling her mother was banished. Her mother had no choice but to whore her way from ship to ship, trying to get as far away from the Wildling infested north as she could. When she arrived at OldTown she gave birth to Jessilyn and so it was there on the opposite end of Westeros from the Gift did she do her best to survive as a whore in the Undercity. Jessilyn and her mother were always estranged, there was no real love between them. Her mother hated her for the constant reminder she was of the shame that banished her. Jessilyn more felt sorry for her mother than anything. At a very young age she and the local kids would play and put on performances in alleyways and corners and gazebos and the sort around the city. What began as child play eventually grew into something more real. They got good enough to earn coin from audiences and eventually, Jessilyn would slide some money under her mother's door from time to time. Jessilyn didn't live at the brothel, she had no aim to take after her mother. She stayed with her Mummer friend's places but mostly she actually took up with a failed Maester that was a regular client of her mothers. He was the closest thing to a father she had.

That is until he informed her mother that she'd become a woman. Which was the beginning of the end for her mother. Jessilyn never believed her mother would be capable of such things. But on her mother's orders she was kidnapped and drugged and her virginity was auctioned off, all for some big party her mother threw when she became Madam of the Brothel. After the party, she was kept in a stupor until she promised her mother she would stay and work for her at the brothel. Several years passed and Jessilyn soon eclipsed her mother in popularity. Using her mummer's tricks her list of clients grew and grew and up the ladder, she climbed until she was considered a 'Courtesan' that was able to mingle at parties on the arm of nobles. Jessilyn had never forgiven her mother for her betrayal and revenge was orchestrated slow but surely. Eventually, she got her revenge by way of forcing her mother to retire and give her the brothel and title of Madam. After that Jessilyn has made adjustments to the brothel, scaling it up some without going so posh the local neighborhood would dislike it. The front of the brothel was reconstructed to expand it enough that a small stage was erected in one of the two parlors. Her old band of Mummers perform there now, every night. Putting on bawdy performances. If the price is right the shows can go from bawdy to downright explicit. All just a fun night at the Bawdy Bard Brothel.
