Yara Desmaraise was born into the Beaucoup de Rivières Luperci community in Ontario, the eldest of seven siblings. Dutiful to the point of rigidity, Yara was the last of her brothers and sisters to leave her childhood home. Her father was a skilled healer, and when Yara began showing interest in healing, she and her father often travelled the area's countless lakes and rivers together, visiting patients and checking up on remote "camps." Yara amassed a fair amount of knowledge in her two years working for her father, mostly about treating illness and midwifery. From her mother she learned hunting, fishing, and an easy sense of humor.

When she realized there just wasn’t enough illness/injury/childbirth in her vicinity of The Rivers to occupy both she and her father, Yara struck out on her own at her parents’ encouragement. She was eventually picked up by a group of traders bent on Nova Scotia and arrived there in early 2019. In her first couple of days in the area she met a rather odd-looking gentleman and set herself to the task of worming her way into his heart.

Soon after committing their lives to each other, Yara and Saut moved to The Rivers permanently. In midsummer, Sorrel Asylum and Mayfly Asylum were born.

2.  Personality

  • Pragmatic: A basic summary in paragraphs or bullet points.
  • Brusque: Or business-like. Particularly when she’s at work.
  • Social: Yara likes to gossip and takes great pleasure in “adopting” introverts.
  • Self-absorbed: Yara can get caught up in others’ opinion of her. She really just ‘’has’’ to be ‘’liked’’, by absolutely ‘’everyone’’.
  • Ignorant: Having lived in the same place with the same people for most of her life, Yara is fairly naïve in some ways. When confronted with difference in sexuality, lifestyle, or culture, she tends to romanticize it and regard it as alternative to her own way of life, which is the norm. That said, she will be exceedingly curious about these differences and seek to try them out for herself, so there’s usually no hostility involved on her part.

Yara is only interested in romance and sex with males, but she wouldn’t be opposed to a one-night fling with a female just for the experience. Sex is one of the few subjects that actually make Yara a little shy. She has often been flirtatious to the point of someone mistaking it for an invitation, at which time she awkwardly backs out. She will be strictly monogamous if she’s in a relationship, unless she has her partner’s permission to experiment.
