[Appearance]

From Morgan

Quote:
While Aurora’s brother inherited the appearance of a rightful King, it can be easily said that Aurora inherited everything that a Queen should possess. At the young age of 16 she has already bloomed into a beautiful young woman, with the looks and physique to match. Her blonde hair and soft blue eyes project a persona of an innocent girl that knows nothing of the world around her. A projection she has cultivated over years.

Standing at 5’3 she has a petite frame that has grown into a woman that turns heads wherever she walks and she revels in the attention that is laid on her, partly because of her beauty and partly because of her royal position. The young Aurora will have many suitors lining up for her hand in marriage and she knows it.

Aurora’s dress sense is, near enough, the most important factor of her life, bar her family. As a Royal Princess she has access to silks and fabrics that no one else has, which she takes great pride in having made into the most elaborate and striking outfits known to man. It is not uncommon for her suite to be filled with tailors and seamstresses measuring her for her latest flight of fashionable fancy. Though her clothing is made from the whole spectrum of colours she will always favour her House’s colours, something that will never die especially after she marries.

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

[Personality]

From Laharial
Quote:
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 naÔve 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 blasť 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.

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

[History]

Quote:
Aurora was born a few minutes after her twin, Adrien, on a bright summer day. Even before they could walk the twins were close. In the crib, if placed away from each other, they’d inch together in the night, until their heads were next to each other. They were always touching, lying next to each other, as though the comforts they received in the womb were needed in life. They laughed together. They played together. Two years later a brother came along, followed by a sister when the twins were five. They embraced their siblings, encouraged by their mother to get along, to play, and to grow together. Both parents, despite being king and queen, found time to spend with their children. They read stories and danced, took walks in the garden and trips to the beach.

Then tragedy struck Forsilvra. Laurine was barely a babe when words of plague in the north came sailing in on the white wings of northern dove. For the first few years the capital seemed immune. But trade could not stop. The capital needed food and goods that were imported from other provinces. While they tried to switch to southern merchants and keep careful control on the docks, eventually the plague arrived. The diseased spread slow and the royals and counselors did everything they could to keep it out of the castle, but even that failed.

In 233, the Queen came down with the plague. A year later the King followed, forcing young Adrien to assume to throne. Aurora throughout this time was in a haze of terror and confusion, though she pretends to put on a strong face as best she could for a child. She did not truly understand the implications of what was happening, just knew that her family was broken.

The day his father died, Adrien and his siblings ran off together to the gardens. They found a grove of trees and curled up together, afraid that they would be next. Julius DeLauncey, the House Scholar and their teacher, found them a few hours later. They told him they didn’t want to go back. That the castle was a scary place where people got sick and died and surely there was somewhere they could that would be better. Julius told them their place was in Castle Licorn, there was no for them, but if they wanted to stay in the gardens, he would pitch a tent and they could hunt their food and see how long they lasted. By the next morning they were cold and hungry, and let their teacher escort them back to the warmth and comforts of home. The lesson had been hard, and their fear of the plague didn’t vanish simply because they could not go elsewhere.

It was around this time frame that the bright and happy girl began to go through a series of transformations. Initially she was in denial about a great deal of things that had transpired in regards to the plague and her personal loss, which eventually turned to depression followed by anger. There was a brief point where people didn’t approach Aurora for fear of having something literally thrown at their heads. For a small girl, she packed a powerful throwing arm! It was here that she found the most comfort in the temple of Quintism. With the appropriate counsel she found herself able to piece herself together and try and move past the anger and resentment she felt when the plague took half of her family away. This was also where she eventually found comfort in learning about the art of tarot, a new hobby that she’s been quite intrigued with and continues to practice for fun behind closed doors. But she gained an additional level of paranoia when her merit was to be tested once again

The plague had waned in the capital some, and then came back hard. A cousin succumbed, and finally in 240 her uncle. Aurora once again retreated into her sullenness. She is convinced that the plague will never end, and her greatest fear is her or Adrien dying to it. When Adrien took the crown, she didn’t express disagreement, but Aurora was not happy either. She worries that her brother will be threatened as King or exposed to something and dies as a result.
Written by Lahariel

Upon the betrothal of her brother, Aurora took to being the queen bee of the castle even more due to an instant jealousy towards Keyna. The princess became ever more fickle about perfection in her dress and went through a myriad of ladies in waiting. While she still charmed the public eye, Aurora went into a vicious battle of her own while Adrien sailed to Westerland.

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

[Writing Sample]

The sound of clicking heels sounded a lot louder in the castle halls as Aurora marched to her chambers. The skirt of her purple gown floated behind her as she moved. "Everything must be absolutely perfect!" she announced to the room. "I mean to have new dresses made for the entire week of my brother's return!" she told the seamstresses that crowded her lounge. She turned to the head seamstress, "Have a selection of fabric before me right after dinner, I must look better than Keyna," she ordered.
"Any specific color you favor your highness?" the seamstress asked, she was used to the princess's demands after years of being in her service.

Aurora's bright blue eyes floated around the room for a moment before she responded, "All colors, make sure I have several shades of purple," she said after a thought, "And some good winter materials and colors," she added as an afterthought.

The princess turned to her steward, "I'm going to need a new retinue of ladies, prepare to write I mean for them to arrive before my brother." With that, she strolled over to the comfortable chair next to a writing desk and took a seat. "How many does Keyna have? I want more than her. A more impressive party for sure with ladies of better breeding," In her eyes was a look of pure ambition. "Get a council member to bring me a list of eligible ladies, make it quick!" Aurora had a few ideas herself, but she wanted a very thorough list to at least look at, not that she had all that much intention of listening to it.
