Ceinwen Prothero



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

[OOC Information]

Your Name: Teagan
RP Experience: 1.5 years
Your Character's Player Base: Shin Min Ah

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

[Basic Information]

Character Name: Ceinwen Prothero
Character Age: 18
Gender: Female
Birthday: March 27, 223
Home Castle/City: Llywarch
House: Prothero

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

[Appearance]

Ceinwen is a lovely young woman, with her soft Lacharni features, slim curves, and captivating dimples. She carries herself tall and straight with a kind of pride that is not often found in women from any other province. Her long silken black hair cascades well beyond her shoulders, and her obsidian eyes pierce the depths of her experiences.

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

[Personality]

Credit to Latara

Ceinwen has always been a tempestuous girl, with a fiery temper. Stubborn as a mule, she is not one to forget a slight, and got a reputation at Lacharn’s court early on as someone to avoid insulting unless you wanted to get on the wrong side of the ruling family. Her tongue can be biting, and often is, but if she considers you a friend or family, she can move past her anger eventually.

Despite her moods, she possesses a strongly analytical mind, one that pays attention to detail and can catch things others can’t. She is very knowledgeable, spending a lot of time deep in study, and retaining a lot of facts and figures. Her main goals in such study are to be able to support her brother’s rule of Lacharn, and even though that day has come sooner than either had anticipated, she hopes that she has done a good enough job preparing.

A proud Prothero, Ceinwen strongly believes in the superiority of Lacharn’s values and ways of life. She could not imagine herself in another province, forced to be subservient to man and stripped of her family identity merely because of her gender. While she enjoyed her time in the capital, she doesn’t even feel particularly curious to visit other Provinces, although she’s sure she will eventually. She’s fiercely loyal to her family, and no matter what may come out of her mouth when she’s angry with them, she’d never stand for someone else saying an unkind word.

Recent events have aged her, while a wedding is supposed to transition one into adulthood, Ceinwen never thought that would come with an attempted murder, a husband abandoning her, a sudden pregnancy, and the death of her mother. She’s a bit quieter now, with a lot of regrets at not being able to stop a husband from leaving on the morning after his wedding, on leaving things on a not so great note with her mother, and any number of other things that could have changed where she is now.



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

[History]

Credit to Latara

Second born to Rhiannon Prothero and Balthasar Merrick, Ceinwen has always been raised in a position of privilege. Her brother Maldwyn was the heir, but traditionally, the second born in House Prothero has been a key advisor to their sibling, and stayed within the House. Raised to rule in tandem with her brother much of the time, she attended many of the same lessons. Her mother was a cautious and practical sort, and things were uncertain. Ceinwen needed to be prepared to take the mantle of ruler if she needed to. She took to books more than combat, but she learned what she had to in order to protect herself.

She was still barely out of infancy when her grandmother died, so she did not remember a time when her mother was not the ruler of Lacharn. Her earliest memories of her mother were of her at her desk, signing proclamations and dealing with problems. They had their tensions, many of them, but she always admired her, even in their worst times. Her relationship with her father was always easier, his calm nature softening her less than calm one.

The plague hit Lacharn when Ceinwen was ten, and it shaped her greatly. Her grandfather died, her uncle, who all in her branch were close to, and many others across the Province and Forsilvra. Ceinwen felt unsure of herself, and constantly afraid of losing more people. It made her a colder person, harder to get close to, but it did draw her closer to her family. Especially with the lack of traveling, Ceinwen didn’t meet many outside of her family for those long plague years. When the plague started to pass, Rhiannon was still wary, so they still stayed within Lacharn's borders. The first thing to draw the main branch Protheros outside of their Province's borders was the summons from the King to attend his May event this year.

Ceinwen knew things would change when they went to the capital, but she didn’t know how much. Her mother succeeded in her main goal, securing the King’s hand for Keyna, but there was an unexpected surprise in the form of Ceinwen’s betrothal to Nasir Linnet. Rhiannon had always told Ceinwen that her place was in Llywarch, so Ceinwen expected a Lacharnian groom. Well, as it turned out, Ceinwen’s place was in Lacharn, but not necessarily with the Lacharnian groom. For some reason (and, in getting to know Nasir, Ceinwen only became more suspcisious of his uncle), Aashiq Linnet agreed to send his nephew to become a Prothero.

She raged at her mother and withdrew from everyone, behaving in ways that she never would have imagined herself having cause to. However, when the Linnets arrived, Ceinwen realized that Nasir was in a similar situation to herself. She softened a bit, although not showing anyone else, until the wedding night...

Of course, after that, everything went even more wrong. The poisoning, Nasir’s disappearance, the death of her mother, and finally, discovering she was pregnant. Everything seemed thrown off it’s axis, and Ceinwen doesn’t know where to turn.



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

[Writing Sample]

Lumps stuck in her throat, and her whole body went tense. She worried for a brief moment, if squeezing her abdomen so tightly could hurt the baby, but it was still too small to be affected. The only real indication she had that there was a baby at all was the pause in her monthly blood, and the tenderness of her breasts. Still, she wanted to take every caution to ensure her child's health, and the stress of these past two months had been nothing but a hindrance in that regard.

Nasir was being released today, and she had gone to great lengths to prepare for his arrival. She wanted to make sure he was as comfortable as possible. The last she had seen of him, he was anything but comfortable, down there in the dungeons. She worried for his state of mind as much as anything after what her brother had done. She knew he had only been protecting her, but her husband hadn't had any more choice in their marriage than she had. It was blind luck that they found they did enjoy each other's company. Certainly, running off after she was poisoned, was not the best of choices, but she was sure as day that he would never do anything to hurt her. At least she hoped that he wouldn't. For the sake of her child, she prayed to the five that his affection for her remained.
