Character: Jacquelyn Hellatius
Weapon(s): Remarkable intuition and character judgement.
Personality: Jacquelyn has been called impish, sometimes even the wicked princess, and personally she doesn't know what all the fuss is about. Unladylike, blunt, and rude, many a noble dislike her, but Jacquelyn is also perfectly capable of acting appropriately when directly ordered to do so by her father or Ellya. One of her finer points is that she has always had a childish, innocent charm that wins over the servants and simpler folk.
When it comes to her duties as Ellya's apprentice and healer, Jacquelyn is attentive and hardworking. Much like her older sister, Jacquelyn feels that she must help the less fortunate, even if she is far less compassionate and kind. For all the trouble she causes, Jacquelyn is no fool. Ever since she was a child, she has always had a very strong sense of intuition. Sometimes people fear it is too good, as if she peers directly in to one's soul. It is a truly frightening gift, and she uses it to her advantage. Unlike her sister Ellya, Jacquelyn has no problem twisting the truth (her truly great lies are few and far between), and even the occasional arm, to get what she wants.
Background: Jacquelyn is the fourth daughter of the Emperor's second wife making her Ellya's younger sister. Compared to her angelic healer of a sister, Jacquelyn has been likened to an imp. When she was much younger she would always tear her gowns, and get a hoot out of scaring the royal dogs.
This particular princess has always hated boring ceremonies, and obligatory socialising. How unfortunate that the princess that dislikes politics the most has become one of her father's most trusted advisors! Due to her ability to detect snakes, she is constantly forced by her father attend social gatherings and to sit with him in meetings.
When she manages to slip out of her father's grasp, she can be found with the stable boys or cooks, helping them with their chores and listening to their stories. On a few rare occasions she snuck out of the castle entirely to play with the local children in the less affluent parts of the kingdom.
Jacquelyn craves a simpler life and is fascinated by common folk and the hardships they endure. When the rest of her family is out hunting and riding, she is in the armoury, listening to the soldiers swap stories. Because of her constant visits there the soldiers have tried to teach her how to wield various weapons, but this princess has no gift for sport. If anything, she is competent enough with the short sword not to accidentally kill bystanders, but she is no shining star.
Being the youngest princess, and not to mention the most childish one, she feels that there should be no attention on her, when it is honestly quite the opposite. Her father's eye is ever on the lookout for mischief, which she is usually the centre of. Being young she has her immature moments, one is when she still claims that she will never marry and will be perfectly content as an old maid.
Physical Description: While she is not as tall and ladylike as the rest of her sisters Jacquelyn has her own kind of grace. Despite her small stature, her curves are generous and smooth. When it is not combed down and fixed, her thick jet black hair is full of soft curls that fall down to her elbow. Her brown eyes are large and full of curiosity. Her walk has a sensual sway, as if she were dancing to a song that only she can hear.
