Violet Flame

"Regardless of the cost, this kingdom shall not fall."

0 · 582 views · located in Northern Mountains of O're

a character in “Right To Rule: Reborn”, as played by Abraxas_Axis

Description

Name:
Violet Flame

Age:
25

Race:
Human


Affiliation:
Loyalist, obviously. Her true loyalty, however, lies not with other the loyalists who support her, but with Purplexia itself.

Appearance:
Queen Violet is as beautiful as she is often described, perhaps even more so. She is not, however, what people often expect after hearing the description. While her shortness and slight build are often a surprise, they are overshadowed by her short hair and the severity of her bearing, as well as her choice of ceremonial garb.

Her eyes and expression make her nobility and dignity clear to any who stand before her, and they, as well as her posture, aptly convey the innate determination and certainty of one who was born and raised to wear the crown.

That being said, she rarely wears the actual crown anywhere aside from the throne room, preferring instead a purple ribbon to tie back her hair. For this, as well as her decision to wear armor rather than a more courtly gown, she has received some grumblings and raised brows, all of which she has dismissed sharply. Regardless of what many might think of the royalty's position and duties, it is foremost in Violet's mind that it is her place to ensure the security of her kingdom, and that, as monarch, she is the highest-ranking member of the military. She's actually not the first Purplexian monarch by a long shot to favor armor over robes, but she is the first Queen to do so.

Some also take issue with the relative lack of purple in her garments. She points out however that they are not blue, but indigo, a shade of purple.

Personality:
Queen Violet Flame is possibly the best living argument for rule through divine right. Not in terms of success of course, but rather as a result of how she arrives at her success or failure. While she may be physically small, her personality is a powerful one, a weapon she uses as a knight might his sword. She has, on a few rare occasions, silenced uproarious aristocrats with nothing more than a stern glance in their direction. Noble, austere, clever, and commanding, these are the defining traits she is known for. For better or worse however, they are not the only ones.

Whatever might be said for the Queen or how she may choose to do things, Violet truly does love her kingdom and its people. Indeed, it might very well be safer for them were this less the case, as she is willing to do whatever is necessary to preserve Purplexia in all its glory, and protect its subjects against any harm, even if it is thus themselves who she must guard it and them against. As a result, she can't help but feel offended, even hurt, though she'd never openly admit the latter, by the mere existence of the so-called "Independents". After all the work she puts into keeping the nation powerful and affluent, after her father, and his father, and his father before him, spent their entire lives building Purplexia into what it is, these few short-sighted individuals were fooled by her sister into thinking it righteous to ruin it for everyone? Mind you, she's fairly certain that most of them are just sell-swords, looking to make some coin, but even so, these actions are, in her mind, misguided, and nigh unforgivable.

While her brilliance and devotion to her country are admirable, Her Majesty tends to be a bit... removed. Sometimes accused, behind her back of course, of being emotionless entirely, Violet always was the calmer and more level-headed of the sisters, and this trait seems only to have taken greater hold once her father died and she took the throne. Or at least, she took the title of monarch. With Alterez attempting to run the military, handle diplomacy, and make laws, she isn't entirely certain what he thinks that she'll be doing, but she finds his acting almost as regent, helpful though he may mean to be, a little more than presumptuous. Back on track however, Violet's typical attitude is objectively analytical at best, and chillingly cold at worst.

Like:
+ The Kingdom of Purplexia
+ Her loyal subjects
+ Her knights
+ Alterez
+ Her sister, to a certain extent

Dislikes:
- Her sister, to a currently greater extent
- The so-called "Independents"
- A very large portion of the aristocracy, interactions with whom being one field she's more than happy to let Alterez have
- Traitors
- Disorder

Hobbies:
Queen Violet has little time for such things, occupying the majority of her time with her duties as monarch.

Fears:
To be honest, Violet can't think of anything offhand that she would genuinely be afraid of, it simply isn't in her nature. The closest thing would be her desire not to fail her father.

Secrets:
Violet is planning, among other things, the assassination of Lord Alterez. She has no intention of actually following through without ample reason, he is one of her oldest (and only, for that matter) friends after all, but he's been presuming a bit much since the King died, and she is not one to not take proper precautions.


Weapons:
Much like the ceremonial armor she dons, Her Majesty carries a sword at her side at all times, gifted to her by the church on her sixteenth birthday. While the sword's primary color is blue, the one given to her sister is red, together being the component colors for the royal purple. The blade bears the inscription "Flamma Aurora Violet". Finally, despite being a sword designed for ceremonial purposes, knighting and other such things, the blade is perfectly serviceable, and, while it is not even slightly magical, it is of superior craftsmanship.

Equipment
Violet rarely carries much on her person, aside from her sword, cape, and armor. Rare is the occasion for her to do so, as her duties rarely require any kind of equipment, and even less often is one where the necessities are not provided. That said, while she rarely wears it outside the throne room, she keeps her crown with her at all times.

Abilities:
Compared to those she surrounds herself with, Queen Violet's combat ability is fairly low. She is well trained in the art of dueling, but has never truly participated in battle before, aside from a few brief instances, not lengthy enough to count as an actual fight. Of course, this is neither where Her Majesty's strengths lie, nor where they are meant to. Coldly brilliant by nature, she has also received the education and upbringing of one who may inherit the throne, which in of itself is a massive intellectual advantage. In the courts, when she does see fit to speak, her wit is unparalleled, and her strategic knowledge is on par with even her two generals, both of whom are masters in the field. Her education also extends to lawmaking, and otherwise running a kingdom as well. In truth, her primary source of trouble with ruling, aside obviously from her sister leading an armed revolt, is appeasing the church and nobility, so as not to lose their support. Finally, while not exactly an ability so much as an inherent personality trait, Violet seems to handle stress extraordinarily well, keeping a level head even during attempts on her life.

Bio:
Violet Flame was born as the second in a pair of twins, the first being her, ever so slightly, older sister, Rosa Dream. The infants were beautiful and healthy, and the royals rejoiced at finally having not one, but two applicable heirs to the throne, though it might perhaps been preferred by some that one of them had been a boy. The King and Queen of the time had been trying many years to produce a successor, and it was thought that it would soon be impossible for them. Regardless, as it was, the rejoicing was short lived, as, it seemed, was the Queen at the time, and she fell ill and passed away, not long after the girls' birth, leaving them to be raised by their father and the castle servants.

While it might be a surprise to learn, considering their current situation, the sisters actually got along quite well, the personality and talents of one a compliment to the other. Violet being quiet, intellectual, and reserved, perhaps even a bit shy, seemingly possessing an instinctive understanding of economy and foreign relations, and Rosa being effortlessly charming, adventurous, clever, and perfectly at ease amongst the aristocracy. Both were gifted tactically, as well as in the art of swordplay, so much so that their sparring had to be done separately from their actual fencing lessons, so long would it end up taking one to score a point against the other. The King and his advisers were pleased in the assuredness that, no matter who was chosen to succeed him, she would be an excellent Queen, with an equally great Princess at her side. Rosa, being the older of the two, even if only by a minute or two, was the most likely choice for the role at the time.

Their friendship lasted well into their teens, though their interactions were fewer, with Rosa attending functions held by nobles and dragging Violet around less, while Violet spent more and more of her time around the castle, reading into Purplexian history, observing how the soldiers were trained, and watching from their father's side as he served his role as King. The differences between the two increased, as Violet grew more focused and restrained, and her sister grew more worldly and impulsive. Despite this though, the two still got along, though perhaps not quite as well as they used to.

That was of course, until the incident. Violet never found out exactly what it was, other than that it had had to do with Rosa's increasingly emotional attitude, and that the church was upset. In the end though whatever happened succeeded in convincing the King, already on his deathbed, that Rosa was to easily swayed by her emotions to safely be entrusted the crown, and decided that Violet would inherit it when he died, which he did barely a week after deciding this, making the new Queen promise to look after her subjects as a kind and benevolent ruler. Somewhere during this week was the last time she saw Rosa as well, though that particular period of time is hazy in her memory, and not one she especially enjoys thinking about anyway.

Lord Alterez, a friend and member of the aristocracy, was of great help during this time of grief, organizing the funeral, coronation, and anything else that needed to be done immediately, while Violet composed herself. Over the years that followed, Queen Violet has faced down other nations, cemented the growth of Purplexia, and gathered quite the collection of oddballs and misfits within her inner circle. An assassin, a peasant knight, a wolf, and a gymnastic spy. Hardly a courtly group, but she loves them as she does all of her subjects. Her sister has recently returned, leading a gang of marauders and malcontents with the goal of overthrowing her and taking the throne she claims is rightfully hers.
