~ ~ ~

Alyvia LeBorde
"St. Giles: Under The Crucifix"
Alyvia LeBorde of St. Giles 
1) What is their full name and is there a story behind why they got it? Alyvia Ysobel LeBorde. It was a favorite name of her mothers.

2) How old are they, and when were they born? She's 17 and she was born in Jerusalem, 1160.

3) Describe their physical appearance. (Bonus questions: 1. What is their race/nationality/ethnicity? 2. Do you have a picture of them? If so, include it!) Alyvia is an orphaned leper living in a Lazar house (a hospital for lepers) outside of London, England. Thankfully she was spared most of the deformities that most lepers suffer from. She is 5' 5", slender, has long brown hair that is normally worn in a long braid, large brown eyes and a sweet, endearing smile. Alyvia is French on her mother's side, but is unsure about her father's side because her mother never talked about him. She was born in Jerusalem, but moved to England when she was seven.

4) Describe your character's personality first in one word, and then elaborate with a few sentences. Devoted. Alyvia has devoted her health and her strength to serving the lepers in the Lazar houses of England (and eventually Jerusalem). She is a very gifted physician and will stop at nothing to protect the preserve the lives of the people she loves dearly.

5) What theme song(s) fit their personality and story arc? (Do you want to reword that or does that work? I'm not sure...) You Found Me by Kelly Clarkson

6) Which one of the seven deadly sins describes your character? Pride. She has a very hard time asking people for their help.

7) If they were an element (fire, water, earth, air), which one would they be? Earth.

8) What is their favourite word? Honestly!

9) Who’s one person they really miss? (It could be someone who’s passed away, or someone they’re not close to anymore, or someone who’s moved away.) Her mother and she constantly thinks of her father that she never knew.

10) What sights, sounds, and smells remind them of that person? Sunsets, flowers and honey.


  1. Stopping by from Beautiful People.

    Alyvia seems quite heroic. :) Her name is so pretty!

  2. I'm part of the Beautiful People thingamajigger... :D Alyvia is such a beautiful name and her whole name is gorgeous too (how did you come up with it??). Her story too, her being a leper and helping others like her, is really unique and intriguing.

    On another note, I nominated you for the Liebster Award here:

  3. A leper? I'm intrigued! Does she have deformities then? A missing finger? Totally cool if she does.

    1. Thanks : ) I know a leper isn't exactly the most popular of heroine choices, but I think using someone who is physically ill, but mentally and spiritually strong is much more interesting. And no, Alyvia has no major deformities, which is why she is able to work so hard. She has a few leper sores on her chest and legs, and has no feeling in her feet and hands because leprosy cuts off the sensory nerves in those areas.

  4. Alyvia is a gorgeous name! She sounds so loyal and determined. Love the idea! It's so unique :)
