Sonrisa Villarosa, a transplant to Valehaven, holds the distinction of being the kingdom’s first lady knight, a title she earned while serving in the recent Kings War. Also known as the Contessa for the noble rank bestowed by King Marcus, and the Dragonslayer for her defeat of the notorious warlord, Il Drago, she is a woman who unrepentantly defies convention in her life and her loves, and who has practically made a career out of being exceptional.
Beloved of Valehaven’s royal family, Sonrisa was originally common born in a kingdom called Castella on another world. During his self-imposed exile, Larius found and befriended her and ultimately, she made her home in Valehaven after the Relocation. She was granted the Clearwater estate with her title and has cultivated it into a horse breeding farm establishing critical bloodlines for the Friesenn breed she brought from her homeworld.
Sonrisa is a catalyst, bringing change in her wake. Through her friendships both high and low, she seeks creative solutions and advocates for equality among all people. Her genderbending nature gives her access to a broad perspective and her offworld background frees her from a ‘how it’s always been done’ attitude. But she does not simply dispense advice and sit back, she enjoys working hard, with her own hands and resources, to improve the condition of her beloveds and the kingdom that adopted her--if begrudgingly.
In addition to her martial prowess and horsemanship, Sonrisa has skill in both magical and non-magical healing. Through a twist of fate back on her homeworld, she is also immortal and appears to be in her early twenties though she’s pushing forty. She’s tall for a woman, and strong after decades of martial training. Her appearance is typical of Castellans with dark hair, dark eyes and a warm brown complexion; however, her features are not delicate nor fine and with the right garb, she has been known to pass as a man.
Today, Sonrisa is married to Sir Corbin and they divide their time between growing Clearwater and training pages at the palace (with the occasional trip to Linderall). She and Corbin are the heads of House Fletcher and enjoy the opportunity for service and largesse among their nearest and dearest. She’s close friends with Prince Larius, Master Raven Lautari and Master Raul Ettore, and enjoys her new role as auntie to Raven’s adoptive daughter Finch and Raul’s newborn daughter Sorra. She regularly competes in tournaments during the summer months, but winter always finds her happily hibernating in Tior (with the occasional trip to Linderall).
