Human Elder in Promise
Carmen is the human elder and representative on the Promise Counsel. She served as The Lady’s assistant for many cycles. She felt obligated to serve in the political arena for the village, rather than ascend to become High Priestess of the church of Paloma like most envisioned her doing. Although a strong advocate for the laws involving forced marriage and child-bearing, due to complications, she only had one child – a daughter. Carmen always dresses in the earth tones of a Beloved of Paloma. Her long blond hair is worn up in a severe-looking bun, making her look much older than her thirty-five cycles. She has very poor eyesight and squints constantly when not looking at something very close.
