Nuritin Balitang (pronounced noor-EE-tihn BAHL-ee-tahng) is a luarin Kyprish noblewoman. She is the matriarch of the Balitang family and the head of the luarin conspiracy. She is also the aunt of the late Mequen Balitang, and the great-aunt of Saraiyu, Dovasary, Petranne, and Elsren.

Biography

Early life

She never married, or it seems as if she didn't. When the main branch of the Balitang family had been exiled, she withdrew a bit from them and stayed in Rajmuat where she was welcomed as one of the most senior members of the court.

She used to be very powerful magically when she was younger and had more of her health.

The Return of the Exiles

She was saddened at the death of her nephew, Duke Mequen, but didn't show it. When the princess regent, Imajane Rittevon decreed that all mourning dress would be unlawful, Nuritin had gowns made. She also paid for the luxurious home that the Balitangs returned to, as they were too impoverished because of the multitude of taxes that were imposed by King Oron. As Nuritin believe that Princess Imajane had only invited the Balitang family to court at the Grey Palace so soon in order to force them to wear country dress and outdated fashions, Nuritin ensured that the gowns she had made were of the utmost fashion. She pressured Winnamine Balitang to take the gifts that both the Fonfala and Temaida families had given them in celebration of their return. Nuritin also decreed the raka noble tradition of outfitting the eldest daughter with a staff of her own as "very sensible".

Lady Nuritin accompanied the rest of her family to the Grey Palace to meet the regents, the king, and the rest of the court. While at court, she and Princess Imajane talked of Winnamine's magical transformation from country lady to courtier. When Imajane tried to press Winnamine for two of her children to stay at the court, Nuritin sided with her late nephew's wife.

Nuritin became the leader of a conspiracy that included Winnamine, Vurquan Nomru, and others. It was called the "luarin conspiracy", and it soon joined up with the more powerful and expansive raka conspiracy.
