Lady Muirenn ingen Thigernain (Wendy Rae Kiernain) passed from this life on February 15, 2006 after a long illness. For those who did not know her, Lady Muirenn was a vibrant member of the populace of Twin Moons, serving there as an officer, archer, and talented artisan. She was also apprenticed to Baroness Francesca Valentina d'Ivrea, and a member of TRM Aaron and Alisandra's Royal Court (although she insisted on resigning that position when she realized her health would no longer allow her to complete her duties).
