Wintershold's "Silent Princess"Distinguishing Traits:
One of three princesses of the Wintershold clan; her black hair and dark eyes a trademark of where she comes from. Ladondra stands at 5`7 and weighs 110 lbs. with enough `talent` up front making up for anything lacking (if any at all) from behind. Her natural hair color is raven black, but can be seen different shades of depending on the lighting. It`s VERY rare to see her long hair straight (since she usually has her hair braided before turning in for the night); mainly seen in curls and waves. Behind those ravenous locks, between the bridge of her ski slope nose and surrounded by large thick lashes, are emerald-colored eyes that not only show compassion but determination as well. A pair of kissable, plump lips finishes off her oval-shaped face with a smooth white complexion only made possible through proper upbringing. It is unclear or not if any scars or tattoos grace her form. Only those whom have seen her fully unclothed knows her body's secrets.
Next comes the body; the one thing she both loves...and loathes. Past her long neck and square shoulders is her decently-sized breasts; both her strength and weakness depending on the task at hand. Moving down is her small but almost unnoticeable waist, due to her wide birth-bearing hips and buttocks being the next part of her body that`s viewed with both envy and disgust.
They`re then followed by a pair of long, slender, shapely legs; the toenails groomed to perfection like those of her fingernails. Whether a goddess or a monstrosity of nature, is up to the viewer.Likes:
Training(sword fighting and archery) , hunting(not for sport, but rather to use animals she kills for clothing, wearable accessories, possible uses for making weapons, and of course, food), wandering the lands and forest/enjoying nature, having simple conversations with others without involving family conflictsDislikes:
Being criticized because she's a woman, unnecessary death, being called a "strange child/woman" for being so non-talkativeAbout:
The one thing that differs her from her family is that she chooses not to speak and very rarely does so. Even as a child, she did not cry, yell, or scream. Many have claimed that she never learned to speak, so she can't. Others think that since she doesn't talk, she must have suffered some unknown illness that renders her speechless, so many don't take her serious or fear her as being a threat of any kind. Her pale complexion and almost dreamlike/spiritual appearance makes those who gaze upon her almost forget her muteness.
Despite not being the talkative type, she does however get along with all her siblings; to a point. She'll train mainly with her sisters, but it's the spars she has with her brothers that she enjoys more. They make her feel as though she's truly accomplishing something in life.
She honors and respects both her parents; more so her father since he is King. Even in her early twenties, she still considers herself as "Daddy's girl"; being the eldest daughter in their family. While she loves them deeply, there are some secrets she makes sure are kept secret.
One of them being that when she leaves the kingdom(without anyone knowing), she disguises herself as a youthful-looking male while wandering villages, towns, and land; making sure no one knows who she truly is for fear of causing her family and people problems they don't need.
Habits: Dressing as a male when secretly venturing outsideSkills:
*Swordfighting-She has her older and younger brothers and father to thank for this. Which would also explain why she's not as fragile and weak as she looks.
*Archery-Thanks to her training since she was a small child, she is able to retrieve and shoot arrows with ease.
*Dancing-By herself or with a partner, Ladondra can move about with effortless grace.
*Reading-Books in general, poetry, and letters received from around the world. Since she can read, she knows how to write as well; scribbling down thoughts or creative little tidbits here and there when the moment strikes her. However, if someone catches her writing something and asks her to tell them or read it aloud, she becomes very shy and refuses to speak of it.
*Singing-This includes hymns, while attending church, and humming in general to whatever tune pops into her mind
*Flexibility's attack and dodge most times with ease. Thanks to many years of training and sparring, her body has become use to moving in such ways.
*Tracker-Her vision is quick and precise at pin-pointing clues others would either ignore or overlook. With these skills, she can find people and things quicker than most.Weaponry:
For close combat, Ladondra prefers to use short swords. She rarely uses long swords in battle. When in a tight spot, she'll result to using daggers she'll have hidden away in various parts of her clothing. For long-range combat, she uses bows of various types. While hunting, she'll use short bows and for battle, she'll use long bows and sometimes crossbows.Strength:
Sneaking/Stalking. Since she doesn't speak most of the time, being silent has made a majority of people jump from fright of not knowing she was in the room or the area for that matter. Tracking people and animals is also a strong point for her; being able to spot, take note, and follow where they went...at least as long as clues are visible.Weakness:
From infants to little children, she has a weak spot for them. She will comfort and help any who cross her path. Growing up with younger siblings has caused her to become mentally attached to young children. If someone hurts or kills a child; being it in front of her or she finds them as such, something inside her snaps and she becomes enraged and goes all out on those who would commit harm to people who can't fight back.Speed:
What she lacks on foot, she makes up for when using bows and arrows. It is also noted that since she doesn't rely on speed on foot, she does use her tracking skills to quickly catch up to people or animals hours and/or days apart.
