Who is Irys Godeleva?
Irys Godeleva was raised in Syliza in the Godeleva house. She was 5 cycles old when the family found her. That said, Irys has no memory or record of her life before that time, aside from a single possession: a silver ring with a purple stone, which she wears on a chain around her neck.
She grew up as one of the Godeleva family members alongside Imery Godeleva. Imery is 7 cycles older. The Godeleva family is a wealthy and powerful one, with influence reaching as high as the Imperial Couple of Syliza.
Irys spent most of her life with Imery as company, though she was very close with Lady Godeleva until this mother figure died when Irys was a young teen. However, she rarely spent time with Lord Godeleva or other children her age, for that matter.
As Imery and Irys shared a passion for literature and anthropology, these subjects consumed a substantial amount of their time together. Irys was particularly enthusiastic about assisting Imery in researching various historical artifacts he regularly added to his collections.
