[Appearance]

Keyna looks like a porcelain doll with large, deeply brown eyes and hair of a amber-brown. Still adolescent, she is growing into a woman's curves but will never be tall. Slim but blossoming, she walks with a dancer's liquid grace, each line of her simple, elegant clothing moving in harmony. Her posture is regal, as if she is already the Queen she was betrothed to be. She wears a smile most often, inviting others to smile back at her.

-------------------------------

[Personality]

Quote:
Keyna is a demure yet vivacious young girl with a sweet disposition. She is not at all shy, but it just takes a while before she warms up to someone enough to open up to them She is always polite, but a bit reserved until one gets to know her. Then she is charming and witty, and quite enjoyable to be around.

The young girl is insatiably curious, learns quickly, and thirsts for knowledge of all kinds. She loves to read and can often be found in the castle library, either studying a subject that catches her fancy or engrossed in tales of adventure and romance. She is especially interested in the study of animals, plants, and nature in general.

She is accomplished in the social graces, and able to discuss most subjects with intelligence and insight. Yet she has absolutely no patience with womanly activities such as sewing and embroidery. Such pursuits are exceedingly boring and she becomes quickly restless. She avoids them when she can, usually escaping out of doors.

On the verge of turning fourteen, she has the recklessness and impulsiveness of youth, with its accompanying vulnerability. Keyna is naïve and inexperienced in the ways of the world, and lacks wisdom. Despite her high intelligence, she trusts far too readily, and can be a bit gullible at times.

Keyna loves her family and would do anything for them. She respects her parents for their wisdom and knowledge, and looks up to her older brothers and sister. She is not as close to her youngest sister, whom she sees as a bit silly and immature. Keyna is mostly obedient, yet her adventurous streak sometimes gets her into trouble, as does her impulsiveness and spontaneity. Very rarely is she rebellious, but as she grows older, that may change.

Recent events have made Keyna start to mature more rapidly, teaching her to control her impulsive nature and that not everyone can be trusted. Loyalty is changeable and friends can become enemies in the span of a day. Losing her mother so tragically has brought understanding that life is precious and sometimes far too short. Her betrothal to her King Charming has also made her want to behave more like a woman and the future Queen. Keyna is still warm, charming, welcoming and vivacious, but she knows it is time for her to grow up. A queen can't get into the trouble she has often found, and now that she has been made a Princess, she must live up to the role. Falling in love with Adrien is her inspiration to do and be everything he would ever want in a wife and a Queen.

She is very loyal to her brothers and sisters, respecting Maldwyn as their mother's heir and Ceinwen for all she has suffered. Keyna wants to be closer to her siblings because family is important. Her younger sister is still a little silly but is maturing too, making them closer. And of course, she adores her father!

Surrounded by ladies in waiting, Keyna looks on them as friends and companions. Some of them are older than she is, which is a good thing. Their maturity brings hers forward, but they still are girls, laughing, gossiping, finding adventures and enjoying all that being young means.

[History]

Quote:
On a beautiful late summer morning, sweet with the sound of birdsong and the scent of bright blooming flowers, a beautiful baby girl was born to Rhiannon and Balthasar Prothero. Several weeks early, she was a tiny little thing with alabaster skin that looked nearly translucent, and wispy brown hair. Other than her delicate appearance, she seemed to be a healthy baby and her parents proudly introduced her to her three older siblings. They named her Keyna, which means “jewel.”

Keyna was a delightful child … intelligent, vivacious, and curious about the world around her. As a very young girl, she followed her brothers and sister around like a faithful little puppy. If they found her annoying she did not notice. Insatiably curious, she asked them about anything and everything, most of her queries inevitably beginning with the word “why.” While they were at their lessons, she would often hide behind the curtains or under a table so she could listen in. Not very good at concealing herself, she was always found, and eventually her siblings' tutors allowed her to stay. Most of the time, she sat at the table with them and drew pictures on a piece of parchment, or roamed aimlessly about the room. It seemed as if she was not listening to what was being taught but in truth, she was absorbing everything they said that she was capable of understanding at her young age.

When she began asking intelligent questions, Keyna was allowed to begin her formal education early, and she took to her lessons like a fish to water. Learning became one of her greatest joys, and she continued to expand her knowledge privately. She could often be found in the castle library, researching whatever subject took her fancy at the time. She was especially interested in philosophy, the arts, and nature-related sciences.
- taken from previous profile, written by Deianeira

A innocently mischievous child, she liked to wander off away from the castle to investigate the city and the lands surrounding it on all of its levels. This led to an incident where Keyna was lost for hours and searched for by panicked family and guards. She had gone into the woods and made a new friend in a young lemur, which she was allowed to keep. Keyna named the lemur Nefret, and it has travelled with her as her pet since. Once found, she confessed her adventures and gave her promise not to do so any more out of obedient respect to her parents. (adapted from Deianeira's previous profile).

As she grew older, she became more comfortable around people, learning how to speak and behave as a proper lady. Keyna took a fancy to boys at around age 13, testing out how to flirt and charm and entice. It never went too far, because that was not appropriate, but she enjoyed the attention, especially when it came from King Adrien. Learning of her betrothal to him made her ecstatically happy, already half in love with the handsome young King. When he made her a Princess in status, Keyna was beyond happy, eager to begin her new life.

Her happiness was soon brought low by tragic events, one right after another. First her sister was poisoned at her own wedding and the groom was suspected. Fortunately, Ceinwen recovered, but not long after, her mother Rhiannon was foully murdered, devastating the young Keyna. It was time for Keyna to grow up and to be who her mother wanted and expected her to be, supporting her brother Maldwyn as the new Province Lord.

Now 14, she has grown a little taller (but not much) and more mature. Keyna is not so trusting or gullible thanks to the hard lessons taught. Still very much in love with Adrien, she has begun working on the skills and the traits of a true Queen, hoping to be ready when the wedding comes and impress the Kingdom with Adrien's choice while still having the fun expected of a young girl.

-------------------------------

[Writing Sample]

Weddings were starting to become bad luck in the Prothero family. First Ceinwen, and now Uncle Cad. Keyna began to feel a little concerned for Maldwyn's own wedding to Gwen, and then her own. What if something else happened? She was not so sheltered that she did not understand that it looked like someone had a plot going against the Prothero family. Surely the bad luck had come to its end.

Sitting in the chamber given to her in the Hollows, Keyna had seen Adrien off on his sail to the province of Arbrecht to end the war started by a ghost, a man who was believed dead and now was very much alive. Corbin Blanchard had raised his banner and others flocked to him, saying he was the rightful province lord over Lady Elanor Fitzwulf. A shiver went through her, though she did not know why. Surely no harm would come to Adrien, he was so well protected and then when the war was over, he would return to her in the Hollows. They had planned to travel to Llywarch together!

She hugged her book to her chest, looking out at the cold day as the fire warmed the chamber. There had to be a way to bring sunshine back to the day. Adrien was counting on her and Keyna would not let him down. Putting the book aside, she got to her feet and sent her maid to gather her ladies. They were going to go down into the city and explore. Maybe she could persuade Lady Eveline to be their guide and invite Lady Nessa to join them too. It was time to make friends of the deLauncey family and win them over if she could. Adrien would be proud of her for it! Now, what would she wear....?
