My homeland was, at best, just starting to colonize at your time. Ther have been events in my life that's scattered me across the globe and even into space. Unfortunately, rarely were those trips peaceful enough to enjoy the surroundings.
Everyone speaks differently, I have my hometown's accent and use French now and then. I would understand the preference of courtesans to other ladies of the court. As much as I admire form and grace, a vapid beauty is just as dull as a dour pastor.
