Eleanor Abbott

Eleanor Abbott met me at the same moment I met Lewis, way back at the VCU MEAD practice on the business building lawn. Though she showed talent with heavy weapons, her wrists wouldn't put up with it. Nowadays she's out on the rapier field.

Friends of the House

Some folks are or have been more-or-less formally associated with Corby. These include former or current foster squires, people who I would squire if they fought, and other strange cases that really don't fit into fealty, but whom are always welcome in our house and enjoy an association with it.
