Meta Information

Yanyu is Elizabeth's puttering-only character. (With a few exceptions, I generally can't make runs on account of having small children.) Puttering is not required in Dragon. If you want to putter, though, please do talk to Yanyu, otherwise feel free to ignore her. She is built as a downtime support character for informational and character development type things.

Description

Yanyu is a slender woman who appears to be in her 20s. Her clothing seems to indicate that sometime prior to joining the circus she was a lady of some means. She has a daughter who was about a year old at the start of game.

Background

Yanyu is the widow of a soldier of the Dragon Army. She learned the barbarian tongues when her husband was stationed at first the southern and then the northern walls. She is originally from the Illuminated Precincts, where she learned a thing or two about Astrology.

Items

  • Several changes of clothing appropriate to the wife of a Captain in the Dragon Army or a minor noblewoman, all but the best showing some signs of wear at this point.
  • A small amount of quality jewelry such as jade pendnats and bangles, again what one might expect of an upperclass woman who isn't notably wealthy.
  • Writing materials
  • Astrological notes
  • Toddler clothes and toys
  • Leather travelling satchels
  • Warm, tidy, respectable outfit aquired for 70 zhu in the Roof of the World, done in the local style. It's done in shades of pale grey and some of the outer pieces have fur lining and trim.

Non-Item Goodies

  • Access to the Royal Library of the Butterfly Kingdom, granted by Ti Wren
  • Patron of the Exalted Library
