Where Mar joined the cult of Sune out of desperation, and Elice joined out of a sense of destiny, Kirins was simply born to it. Memnar’s cousin, Kirins parents were both devoted Sunites who actually attended Lady Firehair during the time of troubles. In her own way, she is as traditional as anyone in Speardale— it’s just that her traditions are so very different from the small farming community. Still, she is also the most welcome of Memnar’s “girls”… while Elice and Mar spend their days mostly tending the tavern, Kirins tends gardens, and during harvest time is the most likely to be found in the fields helping the lone farmer with his yield, asking nothing in return save admiration for her beauty— a gift readily given regardless her assistence. The most physically beautiful of the three, Kirins is also the most deeply sensual. Where Mar gladly takes anyone to her bed (or has until recently), and Elice teaches boys to view sex not as a conquering but a union, Kirins brings a sensual enthusiasm that teaches true pleasure in sex that (though they are reluctant to admit) more than one of the newliwed women in the farms outside Speardale ar grateful for — she is a consumate educator and critic, but in such a skilled way that her disciples never realize how skillfully they’ve been manipulated.
