Jocasta mac Mordaigh

Dunk's Adopted Daughter

Description:
Bio:

Squire Dunk has never married, and seeing as he reached 50 years last autumn, he certainly seems in no hurry to do so. But the genial lord is not without family; apart from his elderly mother and faithful valet, he has the company of his heir and adoptive daughter, Jocasta. Lady Jay’s provenance is a matter of some speculation among the good people of St. Martindale’s. Some say she’s Dunk’s bastard daughter from a liaison abroad. Others say she’s an orphan that the kindly old squire took in out of charity. A few claim she’s a forest child, a changeling, left by the faeries by the old standing stones, and that Dunk found her wrapped in myrtle and holly while hunting a white stag. Whatever the case, Jay is a brilliant and energetic young woman. Unlike her staid and rather lazy father, she’s always eager to propose new ideas for the town or set off on her horse to the fringes of the March. She’ll make a fine Lady of the Manor someday.
