The Fate of Golden Antioch
Noblewomen of French origin, now in service to Bohemond.
Lysinde is small, shy woman. Though not unattractive she tends to avoid the notice of others and only gains any confidence in the prescence of her brother.
Her brother, dead now for almost a year, is the reason she came to the Holy Land, she followed him here when he sold most of their family estate to fund his joining the crusades. Whenhe was killed during the fighting of the third crusade she was left alone.
Whilst travelling from the city of Acre she was attacked by a group of European soldiers turned bandit. As the few guards with them were cut down she huddled under a wagon and wished that her brother was there to save her. When she dared to come out from under the wagon she found the bandits slaughtered and the insubstantial, ghostly form of her brother waiting for her.
Julain Virmaulin, if it is truly him, listens only to his sister and never speaks. He appears insubstantial and thus immune to blades and bows yet is capable of cutting down his enemies with ease.
Lysinde insists it is the spirit of her brother returned to her, even if he will not speak, a belief Bohemond appears to encourage while the woman remains in his service.
