Nomalla of Halleburn (noh-MAHL-lah hahl-BURN) was a Tortallan knight and noblewoman in the 3rd century HE. She was the only child of Thanen, Lord of Halleburn and his lady.

Biography

Early life

Like her cousin Sabine of Macayhill, Nomalla became a knight of Tortall. She was good friends with her cousin Sabine, and they used to play together in the tunnels outside of Halleburn Castle[1]. She was not the pride of her father, as she was an only child and not the heir he wanted.

High treason

Due to familial pressure, Nomalla became wrapped up in a conspiracy led by Prince Baird to overthrow King Roger III, despite her loyalties to her country.

When Lady Sabine, Rebakah Cooper, Farmer Cape, and Matthias Tunstall were captured by Dolsa Silkweb and taken to Halleburn Castle, Nomalla hardened her heart. When asked why she would do such a terrible thing as treason, Nomalla replied that family was her only loyalty.

Nomalla defected after her father ordered her to have five year old Prince Gareth whipped[2]. She helped them in their escape, and then aided their fight.

Sentence

Instead of being sentenced to death, Nomalla was sent to the Scanran border, where she would redeem herself. Gershom of Haryse, who had been made Count of Yolen, was "sure she would"[3].

It is unknown if Nomalla ever inherited Halleburn or if it was annexed or stripped from the family after Lord Thanen's treason. It is likely that she did not, although she retained her status as a knight.

Physical description

Lady Nomalla stood at 5'10" and had long, slanting brown eyes. She wore her blonde hair in a coil at the nape of her neck. She had a generous figure, which her ornamental armor did not succeed in hiding[2].
