One of 12 Daughters of Dante Machiavelli
Known under many variants of her name; Cassia Machiavelli is one of twelve daughters of Dante Machiavelli. First began attending Borealis courts in AS.33 once reaching her 17th year, having spent much of her youth traveling under circumstances unknown. Rumored to have been born in the republic of Venice sometime in the mid-late 1500's though little proof of actual date of birth or location exists.
Cassia's involvement & attendance at court in Borealis was sparingly until she returned from distant travels and made a home in the Barony of Borealis in AS.38. Little is known of her travels to which is accredited her unique blending of garments and eccentric nature. She is quite often found wearing a silver wolf pelt & favors fire and earth tones in garments.
Wench Wars is an annual non-sanctioned event held at Quad War since 2007 where competitors sign up to be involved in a three part performance arts-style competition.
