Doran Martell | FC: Ghassan Massoud | Status: OPEN
Prince of Dorne and Lord of Sunspear. He is a cautious, pensive man who does not wear his emotions on his sleeve. He has a bad case of gout and has trouble walking. He attempts to appear neutral in the War of the Five Kings, but has shown a desire to avenge his murdered sister Elia Martell. He is rarely seen in public because of the gout, as he does not want to appear weak to his enemies.
Arianne Martell | FC: Inma Cuesta | Status: TAKEN
The eldest daughter of the ruling Prince of Dorne, Prince Doran of House Martell, and his consort, Mellario of Norvos. According to Dornish Customs, she is the Heiress of Sunspear, and the future ruling Princess of Dorne.
Arianne is buxom and beautiful, with olive skin, large dark eyes, and long black hair that falls in ringlets to the middle of her back. Favoring her mother, she is short, standing at five foot two. When attending to matters of politics, she conceals her lush and curvaceous body with flowing silks, jewels, and other ostentatious displays of wealth.
Arianne is calculating, adventurous and fierce-tempered. When she sees something she desires, she strives to obtain it at all costs. Despite her beauty and perhaps because of her high station, Arianne is still unmarried at the age of 23. Arianne has a clique of courtiers and confidants who accompany her, including Sylva Santagar, Drey Dalt, and Garin of the Orphans. She is also extremely close to her cousins, the Sand Snakes, especially Tyene Sand.
Prince Oberyn Martell | FC: Oded Fehr | Status: TAKEN
Prince Oberyn Nymeros Martell, known as the Red Viper, is Doran’s hot-headed younger brother. He has eight bastard daughters, called the Sand Snakes, the four youngest of which by his current paramour Ellaria Sand. Some rumors hold that he is bisexual.
Oberyn is a forceful, lusty man with a quick wit and barbed tongue. He studied at the Citadel for a while, and apparently forged several maester links but eventually grew bored and left the order. Oberyn has traveled the world, and even founded his own mercenary company. He had a very close relationship with his sister Elia and they were inseparable as children.
Oberyn has a lined face with thin eyebrows, black “viper” eyes and a sharp nose. His hair is lustrous and black with only a few silver streaks and recedes from his brow into a widow’s peak.
