Iseabail (Tibbie) Dearnichneven

Description:
Bio:

Tibbie is a priestess of Brighid, the triple goddess of healing, poetry and smithcraft. Brighid is associated with many healing springs and wells.
Her name means Consecrated to god (Iseabail {ee-sha-bail}) Daughter of Nichneven, (Named after a Samhain witch-goddess also called “divine” and “brilliant”) or Dearnichneven, although she commonly goes by the diminutive “Tibbie”.
Tibbie was born the daughter of a priestess of Brighid and a mine hold’s master smith. While she honoured her sire, and learned basics of smithery from him, she dedicated her life, as her mother did to being a priestess of Brighid. From her father she earned her great strength, and her love of the hammer. Through her work with her mother as a priestess to Brighid, she has learned the basics of healing and divine magic. Also from her mother she learned the art of bargaining, as was common for the wives of guild masters to perform the bargaining for their husbands wares. Before her mother took over her education, she was an incredible tomboy, climbing trees, hunting and fishing, as well as learning some of the craft of the smith with her father. Once her mother took over, while the love of the outdoors and adventure remained, Tibbie’s dress definitely changed.
The traditional ribbons used to honour and petition Brighid looked silly when she wore trousers, so Tibbie has permanently switched to dresses.
As her mother’s temple was in a remote mine-hold, with lots of lonely miners, she never lacked attention. Unfortunately, it wasn’t always wanted attention. Tibbie preferred to be chaste rather than chased, and is now mistrustful of men when they have been drinking, and will always have a small hammer with her, just in case. To males taller than the average dwarf, she will also comment that “If you need reminding I’ll elbow you, remember I’m short”
For the past 3 years, Tibbie has been travelling seeing the world, and trying to avoid settling down to get married and have children (girls) for the temple. While she is truly devoted to Brighid, she tends to avoid her temples, just in case they have heard from her mother.
Tibbie is a very reserved person, and is very polite and always neatly dressed always wearing ribbons in her hair and on her dress in respect to Brighid. These ribbons sometimes give the impression that Tibbie is wearing a “frilly dress.” This manner of dress, along with the so called “gallant advances” of drunken miners has caused her to always react very angrily to the phrase “Little Lady”.
