Basic InformationReal Name:
Eleonore von Falkenstein, reigning Queen of ZigguratAlias / Nicknames:
None are known to the public so far, though her father calls her a here non-disclosed name and she has several fleeting additives surrounding her at all times. None of them seem to last more than a month or two, the most prominent being the fair
when concerning the public, many nobles refer to her as the butcher
as a form of slander (but slander always holds a bit of truth in it to last, no?)Species:
Human. No powers or strings attached (apart from being noble)Gender.
Eleonore is a seemingly straightforward person most of the time, most notably when it comes to dealing with her citizens. However, that does not mean that she is a stranger to schemes and courtly intrigues as she has been groomed in a house of high nobility ever since her birth. Hiding her intentions underneath a guise is second nature to her though this does not hold true to people that truly know her. She might have been trained to act indifferently and composed but she is not perfect in the matter. Once a person as sufficiently grasped her person or has seen her without any mask of society between them, they can easily tell what her true intentions are almost all of the time. Currently, only her parents and husband are able to do so.
When it comes to courtly matters, the Queen is a calculating person, able to hide her plans and act on them covertly without being found out. This holds true until she is forced into a corner or it concerns the safety of her family as then she will revert back to acting on instinct rather than thinking things through thoroughly.
Even though it is hard, she attempts to balance official matters with personal and family life as much as possible. Once she has managed to bear children this drive will only increase.
Sporting grayish-blue eyes and an eye-catching red hair, Eleonore manages to stand out even among her family though it is not enough to realistically call her an ill fit. While she wears the royal colors and insignia for official matters, she very much prefers the colors green and turquoise and plain but fitting dresses; well as plain as garments for the nobility manage to be.
Jewelry is a rare sight on her person, though a specific tiara and a locket around her neck seem to be with her at all times. She has three holes for earrings, one in each earlobe and another in her left auricle but apart from moments of particular glamor she chooses not to use them.
Even though she tries to not stand out as much, she inevitably does by doing just that. Her well-trained person and mannerisms stick out of the common crowd but her lack of expensive attire marks her as an oddball in higher circles as well.
Notable skills and AbilitiesUnderstanding:
Being well educated and intelligent, there is little that manages to stay hidden from the Queen given the right circumstances and enough time to think matters throughSword play:
Eleonore is highly skilled with a one-handed rapier. Though she cannot overpower a man or a beast, she is able to hold her ground enough to stick out from the humans around her, besting many of the royal guards in her light sparring sessions.
