Syringa D'Angelo is the daughter of Wisteria D'Angelo and Aedan de Valence. She was born in Salsola. Her littermate is Delphinium D'Angelo. She has three half-siblings, two on her father's side: Alistair Callow-Knight and Dagr Soul, and one on her mother's side: Odessa D'Angelo.

Syringa grew into a life of wealth and privilege in Salsola's remote outpost near Freetown. She has recently returned to Salsola to take her sister's place in their ranks serving as collateral for her father's continued reign up north.

She is currently ranked The Arbiter and holds the Mercante job. She previously sponsored Bayani Grimm and Primrose Grimm. She is the current sponsor of Katinka Holt.

Originally named Claire de Valence, Syringa changed her name to honor her mother who was a victim of the red star and effectively cut ties with her ruthless father after he paid her a visit to bring her the grim news. Informing Syringa was not his primary aim, however, as the topic quickly turned to Syringa's choices and wanton behavior. He attacked Syringa when she spoke against him.

Not long after Syringa, accompanied by Weaver Valentine, made a trip down to Casa di Cavalieri. There, she made a shady deal with her estranged brother Alistair revealing the whereabouts of their father in exchange for no further contact between the two of them.

Some time later, Syringa learned of her father's mysterious death on the road and knew that the deed had been done. She took Weaver as her mate to ensure his secrecy.

When traveling outside of Salsola Syringa goes by the name of Persephone.

2.  Personality

Archer ArchetypeDaddy's GirlSilk Hiding SteelGood Bad Girl

Independent, Perceptive, Wary

  • Not one to be tied down, or held to any obligations Syringa does and goes where she pleases, when she pleases, whom she pleases. She is loyal to Salsola, it's culture and values, but beyond that she is very much her own person.

Coy, Libidinous, Open-minded ...

Curious, Cunning


2.1  Ideals


  • Outlook: Optimistic Realist
  • Sociability: Extroverted. Dominant.
  • Expression: She smiles often and easily, but knows when to show her teeth.
  • Alignment: True Neutral-Chaotic Neutral


  • Establishing her father's name and legacy within Salsola
  • Building positive general and trade relationships
  • Discovering and protecting her father's secrets.
  • Rising in social status
  • Her own pleasure


  • Ostracism: A common fear among many Salsolans. Syringa strives not only fit in but to stand out. Public humiliation and/or exile is a very real concern and to be avoided at all cost.
  • Rape:


  • Likes: Fine clothes and jewelry, fresh fallen snow, socializing, horse riding, foreign language and cultures, trade
  • Dislikes: Rapists and thieves, thunderstorms


Syringa's mother is a former priestess of the Khalif. Her father, however, is a life-long atheist with no regard whatsoever for religion. Death is his god. While Syringa is closer to her father, she does not share his belief. Instead, she believes as her mother does in the Khalif god trio.

  • As neither white nor black, Syringa belongs to the Huntress, Rah'khir. Rah'khir is the freest of the Khalif gods. She is neither bound by the light nor condemned to the darkness- a fact which delights Syringa who, herself, is not pulled to either side. Rah'khir is also a huntress of great skill, Syringa aspires to be the same. She worships with her bow and bears the mark of Rah'khir between her shoulder blades, scarred into her flesh.


  • Packs: Considers Salsola to be the elite of luperci society.
  • Casa di Cavalieri is full of foolhardy meddlers who don't know when to leave well enough alone. Also, her brother is king.
  • Sapient is an ideal place for pursuing trade. (It's also full of hotties!)
  • Species: With little to no basis for a personal bias Syringa is perhaps too accepting of other species.
  • Non-Luperci: Syringa is disdainful and disproving of feral lifestyles.
  • Sexuality: Accepting of homosexual relationships, but does not openly seek one for herself. She appreciates the beauty of other women, but prefers men.


Kinsey Scale 1
Syringa is flirtatious and accepting of both casual and romantic relationships and thrives on physical touch whether friendly or sexual. She shares her father's open attitude towards sex and believes there is no shame in the sharing of physical pleasure between consenting adults. She also considers it to be a valuable tool and would not mind playing the role of mistress. She can be discreet when desired and may be difficult to tie down as Syringa values freedom in all things.

  • While she revels in sexual attention Syringa is rather selective when it comes to partners. She is wary of Outsiders and shallow in her attractions. Potential partnerships are evaluated based on appearance, social status (if a member of Salsola), and the pack to which they belong. She is wary of loners.
  • Syringa responds well to male dominance but can and will exert her dominance herself if she to feels the need. However, she does not respond to violence.


  • Syringa is a social drinker but is always careful not to drink too much. She enjoys a good buzz but prefers to be in control of her mind and body and hates getting sick.
  • She has never tried any drugs besides alcohol.

3.  NPCs

3.1  Rayder

  • Species: Mixed breeding. Mongrel.
  • Age and DOB: 3-4 years, ~2011-2012
  • Description: Broad built with a pelt of russets, brown, cream, and accented by dark features. His eyes are a fierce, fiery looking amber.
  • Personality: Suspected mute, this slave's motives and past are not quite clear. He performs the regular duties of a hired guard, without any of the perks, as well as any of the more mundane tasks given to him all without rebellion or complaint. How much he knows or understands, as well as his feelings on his circumstances are unknown. He was acquired by Aedan in a trade with a Freetown slaver and after months of serving the de Valence patriarch Rayder was given to Syringa on her return to Salsola as a protector and house servant. What is known about this slave is that he is a native of Quebec and skilled in crude combat as well as general labor.

3.2  Pluie

  • Species: Mixed breed Arabian mare
  • Age and DOB: 2011 (~3 yr)
  • Description: Smoky grullo with a dark face.
  • Personality: Shy around strangers she is the daughter of Aedan de Valence's mare, Soleil. She was gifted to Syringa by her father as a means to teach Syringa responsibility. Though very skittish and fearful around Aedan, Pluie has taken to Syringa especially well. She is a sweet young mare but inexperienced and liable to spook at strange sounds and smells. Despite this she is obedient when relaxed and loves attention.

4.  Relationships

4.1  Family: D'Angelo, de Valence

  • Cousins:
  • Extended: Syringa has several ties to the D'Angelo bloodline

4.2  Relations

Family Relations

  • Delphinium D'Angelo To this day Syringa's sister remains as a bit of an enigma to her. The two were separated at a young age when her family moved to the outpost and Delphinium was forced to remain behind as collateral.
  • Alistair Callow-Knight They first met quite by chance, but it didn't take long for things to turn sour. Alistair demanded to know the location of their father. When Syringa (then Claire) refused him, he threatened violence. She led him into a trap.

Positive Relations

  • Weaver Valentine: Initially drawn in by his music, their first meeting took an unexpected (or perhaps entirely expected) turn, quickly becoming her first sexual encounter. He is a smooth talker, flirtacious, but genuinely caring (surprisingly). Syringa enjoys his company and feels most comfortable at his side. She shares his home with him part of the time and trusts him more than anyone else.
