The Lady Libra

Lady Libra

 “Eternity is a frightfully long time to spend alone…”

She was all things beauty in a woman; albeit exaggerated to their polar extremes, so as to create a sort of overripe diva – like a piece of fruit left upon its branch but a day too long, so as to be left too sweet, too ripe. Hedonistic in all respects, Libra was not wont to being denied her sensual surfeits and her lofty position within Tenebrae left her lapping up all the luxuries her reluctant servants languished upon her.


If Bordeaux represents the embodiement of sovereign leadership, then the Lady Libra would certainly be the antithesis. While it would seem that the self-proclaimed queen of Tenebrae Manor borders the brink of evil, it is merely her extreme selfishness that portrays her as a sort of anti-hero. A powerful magician, Libra holds the residents of the manor under her thumb and abuses her echelon with strict and self-centred orders of servitude. Yet it all comes at a high price – for the Lady Libra is utterly despised by many who had once called her a friend.
