Lady Carlotta Keene
Heir to Lord Arthur Keene, Cousin to Lady Ashlynn Keene.
Southern Belle in spite of her mulatto heritage (thanks to her grandfather’s insistence) who barely escaped New Orleans before its surrender to the Union Forces.
Currently a student of medicine in London, but does intend to take her place as her grandfather’s heir.
She is as close to her cousin as her cousin will permit and often spends the night to check up on her and her girls. Carlotta worries over the fact that her cousin has not had contact with her family in just over four years and only one night in the year previous to that. She watches the growing pile of letters from home that remain unopened on Ashlynn’s dressing table and hopes that one day they will be opened.
