In the Celtic language, Cordelia means 'jewel of the sea.' She was named such by her parents(a midwife and a brewer) raised on the coasts and cliffs of Ireland anlong with her many brothers. When she reached eighteen, she decided to set off on her own and learn from the world. At least thats what she tells the standard person. In truth she ran away from an engagement to a laird she could not stand, he was a cruel man, and a murderer. Her father was a greedy man who arranged the marriage to further his own intrests. Her brother helped her esacpe. She was disowned by her father and framed for the murder of the brother who helped her escape in Ireland. Her father is now dead from a heart issue and her former bethrothed from a drunken brawl. But, now there is no way to prove sheis innocent, so, Ireland is forever beyond her reach. On fleeing Ireland, her first destination was England. The journey had robbed her of all her clothes, leaving her in rags. When she arrived here she quickly decided that this was where she would stay. For now, Arundel will be her home. One day, she hope to travel to the cities and other towns that make up England. Two things that she did manage to keep whole on the journey are my Irish harp and a Flute.

Recently, a relative of her mother found her in Arundel. She brought news of the death of Cordelia's mother and a story. The story told of how her mother cleared Cordelia's name and gave her the task of finding the scattered members of her family. To date, she has found her cousins Ashling and Aldea, and her brother Droch, her half sister Thalia, and her twin sister Aelan.

Sortly after she arrived in Arundel, Cordelia found love in the warm arms of Unther. After a short courtship, she married her warrior on April 14, 1456. They then became the proud parents of Cardion Connor Blatheren on Novemeber 26, 1456. This happy state did not last long though. A fire claimed the lives of Unther and Cardion on June 27, 1457. But from that tragedy came the miracle of Fiona Muirgen McDermott.

Love was not gone from her life however, and her friendship with Geoffrey 'Viceroy' Mortimer grows into something more. They became engaged on January 31, 1458 and married on March 12, 1458.

On November 21, 1458, Cordelia and Viceroy had a son, Michael Alexander Mortimer. Princess Jennet was named his godmother.

In March of 1459, Cordelia and Viceroy renewed thier vows in a field outside Penrith, officiated by Ariel de Grey.

However, even love cannot go against Jah. Viceroy passed away in his sleep on April 21, 1459, leaving Cordelia to assume the throne until the gods started a new election for King.

She has traveled the length and bredth of the country, but is now home in Hastings to rebuild her life at Herstmonceux Castle.

Cordelia was the writer of Arundel's news/gossip paper: What's Happening in Arundel???, the Chief of the Sussex News Network, a member of Prince Viceroy, Princess LadyJennet, and Prince Chris_Braveheart's Privy Councils, the Town Cartographer of Arundel. She was the Lady High Steward(Heir) to King Viceroy.
