Like her brothers, Eleanor Grey is quite capable and can handle a cross bow
or sword as well as any man in the shire.
Although the customs of the time would
dictate that Eleanor act more like a "Lady," Eleanor is not yet ready to settle
down to the more tame domestic pleasantries of castle life, but instead, she
would rather do the rough-and-tumble with her brothers and anyone who thinks
they can best her.
Eleanor stands ready to protect her home from anyone who
threatens it especially, the local Baron John Mullens, who continually seeks to
ruin her father, Sir Thomas and take their land.
Eleanor's closest feminine
influence comes from a nearby castle owned by Lady Elisabeth (Cherie Lunghi) with whom Eleanor's
father has romantic interest.
