Description and Background
Fiona is 5í4Ē tall, slender and delicate in appearance but stronger than she looks. Has long, very pale blonde hair which she usually wears in a long braid. She has light blue eyes and very fair skin.  She is something of a tomboy, preferring riding and archery to more feminine pursuits. She has learned about household management but loathes needlework and avoids it whenever she can. She is also very stubborn, especially when she feels she is in the right.
She is first cousin to Iain and Darcy; their mothers were sisters. A daughter of a baron who held manors in the Duchy of Claiborne. Baron was killed in a skirmish with renegade Mearans when she was 5. She is Deryni but only partially trained as her mother became ill and died when Fiona was 8. She was then sent to live with her aunt, Iainís mother, who has remarried after the death of her first husband. Her husband is cruel and abusive. After the disappearance and supposed death of her younger son, she became afraid for Fiona. She is already ill and asks Iain to arrange for Fiona to live with another noble family, friends of her first husband, so her education as a daughter of the nobility can be continued by the lady of the house. Iain took her there when she was 11 and she has remained for the last 6 years.
Iainís mother has since died and Iain is now primarily responsible for her but sees her only rarely due to his responsibilities to Kelson. She is fiercely loyal to Kelson and Gwynedd as well as to Iain. Since the start of the rebellion, she has become increasingly uneasy. There are frequent loud, angry arguments between Baron Stuart and his son, Michael. The younger man wants to join the rebellion but his father forbids it, remaining loyal to Kelson.
She overhears Michael talking to two of his friends about restraining his father and taking his place. She feels that she needs to inform Iain but can think of no way to get a message to him as Michael is suspicious of her and watches her closely. Also she does not know where Iain is. After careful thought, she decides to run away and try to reach Sir Roland who will know how to reach Iain and will also protect her. She remembers Roland and Maev from her time living with Iainís mother and Iainís comments about them.


Inventory:
Adventurerís kit: bedroll, flint and steel, belt pouch with knife, rucksack, waterskin, 3 pints oil, rope, rations, torch and cloak.
Disguise: took some of Michaels clothes: tunic, hose, hat. to look like a boy.
Additional weapons and equipment: horse. Did not take her own horse, too high bred. Took horse from the stable. Sturdy and reliable but unremarkable. Bow with quiver of  three arrows.

Does anybody know if there are any Deryni Steampunk books or fan fiction out there?

Evie, Matt has inquired about the DA and he lives nearby so I could just deliver them to him.  However, you have first dibs.  I asked for your zip code as the post office might want it in order to give me a rate.  Let me know what you want to do.

Thanks,
Marilyn

...We will then take good care of you (Washburn chokes quietly).

Cough, weaze, cough, breath... Washburn  says "I Trust Darcy, Aliset and Columcil will take good care of you. Ah and Iain too. But as for them other fellows... don't go anywhere near Jaxom, Feyd or Valerian. Their idea of taking care of you is not the kind of care you want or need. "

Jump in with both feet, the water is fine.

The map in the Deryni Adventure Game is much better than the ones in the Codex. I think it's the same as the one on the poster, and probably the one in the most recent novels also.

It is a sad wasteful death. And just the beginning. The 1st book of the Heirs of Saint Camber isn't called "The Harrowing of Gwynedd" for nothing.

*sighs* I just got to the part where Rhys dies. Oh man! I actually cried at his character's passing. I understand why Tavis & Javan did what they did - but one has to wonder even if he was at full strength; if his slip could have even been avoided.

And did Tavis learn of Rhys' Deryni blocking abilities from doing the deep psychic probe the night before he died?

The massacre of the Deryni was just horrible - and I feel for poor Evaine losing both her husband then her child.
