Character Name: Aurora Fontenot
Character Age: 16
Birthday: June 12, 225 - Gemini, Born on the Day of Buoyant Optimism
Current Location: Castle Licorne, City of Belleile, Island of Forsilvra
House Fontenot was founded over 800 years before the uniting of Forsilvra. Raised to banner lords by House Faerald in the old days, House Fontenot grew in power and prestige. Known for their military might, when the Great War broke out, they raised their armies and moved to fight against the invaders that threatened to take down all of Forsilvra.
After the Great War, in which the kingdoms now known as Forsilvra banded together to drive out the invaders of The East. To ensure continued unity, they agreed to unite under one king, who would be located on an island independent of the others. The kingdoms would becoming provinces, which each former king now a sworn lord to the king. Jondé Fontenot, a high ranking noble on Caelain, who had been instrumental in the victory over The East was chosen as the king. He took on Ilsa Fitzwulf of Arbrecht as a wife as a sign of unity.
At first, the rule of House Fontenot was little more than a formality. The provinces each supplied high lords for council and knights to guard the king, but short of a few taxes and minor laws, little was done to consolidate the kingdoms. But as time passed, disputes were brought to the throne for rulings, and stronger laws were past. A military force to protect the castle was added and both castle and town were surrounded by high walls. The island, chosen for it’s rocky beaches, cliffs, and steep slops is not impossible to breach, but able to be defended.

Aurora exemplifies her namesake in every way possible. A wisp of a lass, her petite frame along with her height of 5’3” is just the beginning of what make the young princess a natural beauty. Her skin is flawless, with an ivory glow like a porcelain doll that has made many women jealous. On top of that, her hair is a gleaming shade of blond that almost seems like the sun itself came down and kissed her tresses when she was only a babe. With green-blue eyes to top it all off, Aurora could be considered pure perfection when it comes to describing a maiden of the fairest features.
An icon of high-fashion, Aurora dresses herself in the finest of clothes and costumes from all over the lands both domestic and foreign. From formal to funky, she takes getting dressed to a whole new level as tailors and designers visit her chambers on a near-daily basis, measuring her for new dresses, shoes, and other accessories. If cleanliness is close to godliness, and clothes make the man, then royalty should exemplify both to their utmost extreme in her eyes. She could outshine almost any noble at a party even in her most ‘lowly’ of outfits. Decadence: Aurora be thy name.
It is without saying that Aurora exemplifies all of the regal qualities of a princess and more. In the public eye she is a charmer, an extroverted and magnanimous individual who always likes to keep a happy disposition wherever she goes. Considering how she presents herself to the court, it’s almost impossible for her to not be the center of attention. There is an intrinsic quality from within that allows her to take problems as they come and tackle them one step at a time. Where others might balk or shy in the face of tribulations, she bravely steps up and faces them head-on. Her physical stature belies her inner strength in spades, and she can be a bold and ballsy princess if a line has been crossed in her eyes. She’ll even toy with men to get what she wants, but when a challenge is met with equal fortitude she plays the shrew and backs away.
She used to be a very sweet and gentile girl until the plague. Now she keeps a stiff upper lip for the sake of public eyes, but her naïve and carefree nature has turned a bit sour to people who are not considered close confidants. Aurora has adopted a bit of a Queen Bee attitude in matters of court and behind the scenes, not hesitating to hand a verbal slap to you in plain view and with a smile on her face at the same time. She commands loyalty to her brother and keeps a shrewd eye on anyone who’s around him for any reason. His Council she holds a particular level of hostility towards because despite the fact that the lords swear their allegiance and fealty, she’s not so stupid as to ignore the in-fighting and the ass-kissing that comes with the territory of placing themselves as favorites in the mind of the king. Especially after having dealt with the plague and the realities came about afterwards, Aurora believes she has to be the voice of reason when Adrien’s heart overrules his head with them.
It’s obvious that she’s always been close to her twin brother, as any set of twins typically are in the own ways. But now that he’s King of Forsilvra and after the events of losing half of her family, she’s become even more coveting of his well-being and affection. She doesn’t like the idea of him getting married for any reason, and any form of separation is usually met with vocal levels of outrage. In regards to her younger brother, Bertram, she’s maintained a level of distance for reasons even she doesn’t quite understand. Sure they all talk together and go about their usual activities, but she doesn’t confide in him like she used to and her attitude towards anything involving him is met with a level of blasé complacency to some regard.
From the scholarly side of things, she’s very well-versed in multiple subjects. She’s not much for mathematics, but she does enjoy the mysteries of science. The culture and arts are more her style, as by proxy of her taste in color and fashion can be a dead giveaway. She excels at languages, and likes studying history and culture. Whenever her tutors bring artifacts in, she’s always the first to take a look at them. It is often said that she was born to be a student of the world, it’s plain as day that she covets the jobs of the ambassadors, as she never stops talking to them about what it’s like to be in their shoes. But she would never stray from Adrien if she wasn’t able to bring him with her, and it’s not a royal’s station anyway, so therein lay two problems. Plus, it’s hard to go schlepping off to other countries in high-fashion attire.
“Three of swords, you’re holding yourself back from what you want most,” Aurora said as she laid out a few more cards to one of the servant girls. When she placed another card down and looked at it, she looked up and quirked an eyebrow at her, “You love someone.”
“Uh…!” the girl’s cheeks turned a bright red and she immediately looked down and continued cleaning the princess’ breakfast table. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Aurora smirked, “It’s not something you’re good at hiding.”
It was then her face became serious and she laid down a few more cards. When she took a look at them more closely, a sensation of relief came over her, “It’s not the King at least. That’s good.”
“Wha?! Princess I would never!”
“Then who is it?” She was curious at the very least. During this time a gentleman dressed from head to toe in ivory silks and an audacious wig came over with a measuring tape. Aurora, without even looking at the man, held her arm out knowing exactly what he needed to do. He wrapped it around her upper arm and then around her elbow before finishing off with the wrist. Afterwards she went back to her cards, “Well?”
The girl gulped a bit and hesitated before she said in a meek tone, “Bernard.”
“Bernard?” It took her a long time to process the name. Eventually she shook her head and looked over her shoulder to one of the head servants and quirked an eyebrow.
The man responded, “The boy who oversees your horses, Princess.”
A burst of laughter came out of her mouth, the tone jingled merrily, “Really now? Bernard the stable boy?” She turned her head to the girl who was practically crimson with embarrassment. Clearly the boy did not know of her affections for him. With a wry smile, Aurora couldn’t help but rub this bit of news in, “Well he’s not much on the eyes in my opinion, but I could…arrange something if you want me to.”
At first the girl blinked, not really knowing how best to respond. Aurora was aware of the fact that commoners feared taking favors from her lest they show any desire for what was offered. So she had to eventually learn to read body language over time. Snapping her fingers, she called the elder servant over and replied back to the girl, “Done. I’ll make sure that Frederick here sets you both up with a team errand tomorrow. Don’t waste the opportunity while I turn the other cheek.”
Frederick bowed and the servant girl tried her best to hide her sheer enthusiasm, “Oh thank you, Princess! Thank you so much!”
At that point Aurora carelessly waved her hand in gesture of forced dismissal of the girl and collected her cards. At this point she was offered a series of fabrics to look through and now her attention was turned elsewhere.
