OriginEdit

Glafira Ivanovna Alymova (1758 - 1826) was a Russian lady in waiting to Empress Catherine the Great and a skilled harpist. Alymova was actually Catherine's favorite lady in waiting because of her good humor, temperament and skill on the harp. Her skills also drew in love however not the kind that was looked well upon for the time as her first marriage was to a married man as his second wife. Her second marriage was to a man twenty years younger than her and of a lower social status, was regarded a scandal. Alymova was one of the few women to receive the order of St Catherine by Empress Catherine.

EffectsEdit

Music played on the harp comes out so beautifully that the sound is converted into colors you could see. Much like her ill-advised marriages the music draws in the complete opposite of the player.
