maximum spells increased to 12 from rewards
WEAPON(S):She carries a simple looking dagger between her breasts and, though it may seem strange, always wears a small vial attached to a chain on her neck that’s rumored to contain poison.
CLOTHING:Protective amulet: Detects spells aimed towards her and repels them though if the spell is particularly strong, stronger than the creator of the amulet, the item will break which means it would need to be replaced. Smaller spells are easily displaced, countered, and most times she hardly even notices it anymore.
Truth Ring: A sapphire ring that vibrates gently if someone is lying to her which comes in handy for questioning those caught trying to kill her in some fashion. Lucky for her it doesn’t happen as often as it had her niece.
Enchanted bracelet: She has a silver chain with diamonds set into it that grows cold when danger is around her, particularly when a malicious intent if focused upon her person be it beast or man.
MOUNT(S):A stable full of horses of her choice as well as both an open and closed carriage for long distance travel though she’s not against camping out.
OTHER:Along with her birthmark she also has a ward tattooed along her left side that protects her from illness and ensures she’s always in the peak of health.
- Loving but strict
- Fair in everything she does when it comes to her job
- Skilled in the art of insulting someone while wrapping it in a compliment though she’s not really a catty person, that’s just how the court works.
- Great mother, she loves her boys and can be a helicopter mother sometimes especially now that she’s queen but she wants them to be happy and healthy and losing her daughter sort of increased that a little.
- She loves to walk barefoot in the garden whenever she can, feels it connects her better to nature and helps calm her almost as much as painting does.
Eleanor knew she was never going to sit on the throne, that job fell to her brother and any children he would beget with his wife and his grandchildren. That was fine with her, ruling was a difficult job and her brother would be wonderful at it but she still sat in on lessons given to him, they were close enough in age and her mother thought it prudent. Of course their mother was often one who thought it best to have a backup plan and while she hoped her son would live a long, fruitful reign she thought it would be good for Eleanor to see what it took to be a good ruler, just in case. Turns out it was a good thing since their parents were unable to have any more children after the two of them, at least legitimate ones anyway.
Marcel’s studies focused on how to be a good king, Eleanor’s on how to be a good wife, mother, and bargaining chip with a little bit of ruler lessons mixed in. Those lessons eventually paid off as she was married, at eighteen, to a noble man from Cassina with a large fortune in order to bring their family more security and power and to have allies within the neighboring country. Lucky for her and her husband, whom agreed with her about keeping her family’s name, it ended up being a love match. Though they hadn’t known each other well before they were married it didn’t take long for them to grow fond of one another and for love to blossom between them.
Their first living son, Roderick, was born three years after their wedding night after a series of miscarriages that left the pair saddened but unwilling to give up and it seemed it simply took one successful pregnancy to teach her body how to carry to term before they were blessed again. Their second son, Louis, was born two years after that, and then twin boys, Victor and Alexandre, only a year and a half after that. To say their family was happy and full of joy would be an understatement but both Eleanor and her husband, Killian, wanted more and hoped for a few daughters to add to the mix.
Four years after the twins were born they finally got their wish, though the pregnancy and delivery had been difficult for Eleanor. After long hours of labor a weakened Eleanor brought a beautiful baby girl into the world and it was then that doctors suggested that if Eleanore and Killian wanted more children to wait a few years or, rather, stop all together as they weren’t sure Eleanore would live through another birth. They decided to name their daughter Abigail and they had two wonderful years with her.
One day the family returned from an outing, having left a sickly Abigail behind with her nurse, to find both nurse and baby missing with no reasoning as to why. Killian immediately sent for men, women, anyone with any skill int tracking to try and find their daughter and would not rest until their little girl was returned. Nothing was found. After four years of nothing being reported about their missing girl Killian, fed up with the failures, set out on his own to look for Abigail. He never returned and the letters he had been writing to keep his wife updated stopped.
Distraught and unable to stay in the home she had shared with her husband she took her boys and moved them back to court with her brother, his wife and their two children. Eleanore never gave up, she would still hold out hope that news of both her husband and her daughter would turn up but as the years passed she knew her husband was dead and had little hope left that her daughter would ever turn up as well. When Abigail would have been eight was when she was given a glimpse of hope that the girl still lived, that she could be returned. A lock of silky black hair and a drawing of the birthmark Eleanor had passed to her daughter were delivered to her with a note. She was told that all she had to do was assassinate her brother and his entire family to get her daughter back.
As badly as Eleanor wanted her daughter back it was not something she could do and instead turned the note over to her brother to make him aware of the plot on his family's life. She could only hope whomever held her daughter would not punish the girl for her mother’s actions but given the new sources of information about the girl Eleanor redoubled her efforts into finding her child.
She has never forgotten Abigail but when her nephew passed shortly followed by that of her brother and wife, both things Eleanore strongly suspected had been the actions of an assassination, she did her best to make sure her niece would not meet the same fate. She counseled Karine, became a close advisor and actually loved by much of the court, and tried to be as much of a mother to the girl as she could without making her feel like she was trying to replace her actual mom. When the assassination attempts started on the new queen Eleanor couldn’t help but wonder if it was all tied into the people who had taken her daughter and tried to use anyone caught of trying to kill Karine to get information on Abigail.
Sadly even though it seemed like the attempts were finally going to die off, that Karine could become a great queen, an attempt succeeded and Eleanor found herself put on the throne. It’s the last place she thought she’d be but she’s doing her best to rule fairly and keep the best interests of her people at heart and she feels like she’s been doing a decent job the past five years.
