The Grey Watches
Daughter and youngest child of Martin Cahill.
Orianna was the last child born of Martin’s second wife, Finola. She was always an afterthought to lord Martin. After the death of her mother, she was left to her own devices and flitted about the castle, attaching herself to whichever family member or retainer that interested her at the time. She’s always had a sharp mind, but has never applied herself strongly in any area. She has developed a strong practical streak in response to the house’s hardships, though her naivety sometimes sets her on an incorrect path of reasoning. Orianna is a pleasant child, but not happy-go-lucky. She is thoughtful and will sometimes fall into extended, thoughtful silences. She is not overly willful, but will dig her heels in if she believes she’s correct.
Her interactions with her father are limited, which seems to suit both of them. She enjoys pestering Marcus with questions, but is closest to the twins, especially Finn, who is the most fun. However, she is most often in the company of her cousin, Lynette. Aunt Rosalyn has become something of surrogate mother to Orianna.
