Persona History

Iuliana was born in 1543 outside of Leon, the daughter of Diego de la Sara, a respected ambler, and Catalina la Roja, a courtier of the Habsburg Court. Iuliana grew up in and out of court society and among the company of many soldiers and officers who knew and respected her father. She was fully educated in reading, writing, arts and science and learned to speak French as well as her native tongue.
In 1559 Iuliana was sent on a court errand to Milan where she met, through a childhood friend under the command of her father, Nicolai Rabenis Von Tachov, his Lady Helena Zancani and their child, Li. They quickly fell in love and were married with the blessing of both families and the royal court.
After they were married, Iuliana and Helena spent 3 years following Nicolai on several of his military campaign. There, they made themselves invaluable by keeping the military support train organized, and maintaining the financial books of most of the officers. Once his term of service ended, Nicolai sought out a company with which he could continue his military training, and encountered the Iron Ring on one of it's many maneuvers into the outer Italian provences. Abandoning his concern for his family's growing wealth and power, Nicolai rose in the ranks, eventually taking over as commander of the fighting company. There Iuliana stopped being the wife of an officer, and earned the rank through her prowess and intelligence to be promoted to head of her Captain's household, it was rumored that occasionally she was seen on the battlefield as well, although this was never confirmed. Not to be outdone, Helena made a respected name for herself, maintaining the company's books, hosting lavish dinners for ally companies and special guests, as well as educating the ever growing horde of company Children.
In 1560, Iuliana, Helena and Nicolai celebrated the arrival of their second child, a daughter, Rosa while on campaign through Germany. The baby thrived with the care of her parents. Upon return to their home Provence, Li and Anya were joined by a baby brother, Rowan, in 1563.
