Auriel

An old mermaid doll with seaweed green yarn for hair, brown bead eyes, a shining blue tail, and a delicately knotted triangle of netted skirt. Arameril received the doll in the second brown paper package with a letter signed "Your Father."

The doll's hair is speckled with dark brownish-red spots and has a smudged stain over the left seashell sewn onto her chest.

According to the letter, Arameril's father spent a week's pay on the doll whenever he found out her mother was with child and he regretted not being able to give it to her before she was taken and given to the Ivory Tower.

Just before her love, Sir Pengail, was shot with a corsair blunderbuss, Arameril gave the doll the name Auriel.
