In the beautiful words of our Red Sister Keelinnea Isyne:


RedAjah5.png A Red once said

I chose the Red Ajah because I can be my true self. I don't have to hide my personality or my likes and dislikes. I don't need to keep secrets from my sisters because I know that they will always treat me fairly. If their opinions differ from mine, they will tell me without sugar-coating it, but they will not blatantly be rude to me. We always keep a high level of respect in our Ajah, and we demand the same from anyone who wants to join. We don't have Warders in our forums; all we have is each other, so we guard each other well. We will always support one another if needed (unless she's doing something stupid, then we'll tell her she's being stupid and help her fix it).

I believe that what our Ajah stands for can be embodied in the symbol of the rose. It is a beautiful, living, growing thing that smells sweet and may look delicate. It is hardy, though, with strong stems for support when faced with opposition. And no rose is complete without its thorns. It may prick you at the same time you're enjoying the sweet, delicious scent, and somehow you know that the pain is delivered in love, which makes it all the more enjoyable.
