Shiera Seastar by Qi-Art.
Shiera Seastar was the last of the Great Bastards of King Aegon IV Targaryen, born to his last mistress, Serenei of Lys. She was famous for her beauty, and the known lover of Brynden Rivers aka Bloodraven.
Though she never wed, she had many offers, and several lovers through the years. Duels were fought over the right to sit beside her, men killed themselves after falling from her favor, poets outdid each other writing songs about her beauty. Her most ardent admirer was her half-brother, Bloodraven, who proposed marriage to her half a hundred times. Shiera gave him her bed, but never her hand. It amused her more to make him jealous. Her other half-brother Aegor Rivers,aka Bittersteel, was said to have also desired her, which only served to increase the hatred between Bloodraven and Bittersteel.
Shiera was renowned as a beauty and seductress, with long Targaryen silver-gold hair, and a heart-shaped face. Although she had two mismatched eyes—one blue, the other green—it was said that the "defect" only enhanced her beauty.
She was a great reader, even at an early age, spoke many languages, and maintained a large and arcane library. She also was reputed to share her mother Serenei's skill in the dark arts. She was known to possess a famous heavy silver necklace, alternating star sapphires and emeralds to compliment her unusual eyes.
