Inara Mariana Ravus (assuming that is the kings last name, can change it accordingly)Race:
The Kingdom of KenzPersonality:
To the world around her she is a well manner, exceedingly educated and poised young woman. She has the air of royalty around her as did her mother despite the way her father looks down upon her. She holds her head high and tries to keep her strength intact no matter what comes her way.
But within her heart she is anything but a tamed Princess. She has found a way to make sure her voice is heard, even when she has been painfully reminded that she should never speak her mind. When she believes the eyes of the kingdom are else where she is who she has always wanted to be. Knowing that if she was caught her fathers wrath would be like no others. Inara still runs off to explore the woods or towns around them. Taking on learning skills such as archery, guns and swordsmanship. And for ever proving she is not nearly as tamed or as weak as they would think she is. Special Skills/Powers:

(empty till pair is confirmed)Bio:
Inara was born to be a princess; her grand bloodline was filled with leaders. The daughter of the Emperors new wife, she is not only the youngest but also the only female child. And even as a young child she was expected to honor that blood line to the best of her abilities. Which were expected...no demanded to be the best despite what seemed a weakened state in her younger years.
The small princess was born with a strange affliction that rendered her with a weak heart, and as such always appeared weak in her fatherís eyes, a disgrace to his strong family line. And yet she was the only female so she still held merit and was protected as such. But she had certain skills in getting away from her fathers most skilled guardsmen. Inara loved the gardens at a young age, and would spend hours getting lost in them. During one of these moments Inara ventured father then she ever had. Then only 7 years old she came upon a strange sight, an egg that was even bigger then she was. Her small imagination went wild and she was certain it was meant for her. So for several days she would come and visit the egg telling it all about her days and sharing how harsh her father had been. Giving the egg a small kiss before leaving she'd wish it goodnight only to come right back the next day.
That is until she was followed by her fatherís guards, the King demanding to know where the young girl would wonder off too. When she was discovered they alarm was raised and confusion surrounded the young girl and her treasure. Try as she might Inara was no match for the grown men, the egg taken away as it was a dragon egg and beyond her understanding these magical creatures were hated. Inara was caned by her father and locked away in her room for several weeks, the healers saw to her wounds so there would be no lasting scars or damage...at least to her body. The king saw a need to tame the wild spirit of his daughter before she got to many wrong ideas. And as soon as she was able the lessons began.
Languages, art, history, politics, diplomacy...and countless other lessons were all pushed upon her. She was expected to not only do her best but to be the best. And failures were harshly punished and corrected, though her father was always careful not to leave a lasting mark upon her. And at most times used what she cared about most against her. But her parents always insisted it was for her own good, that she would one day have to rise to the occasion. Sadly as she found out later that meant that she would only be rising to a political marriage.
All those lessons all that time and it would all go to marrying her off. It was after an argument with her father that things started to change within her. She had always been a willful child, but her need for freedom grew tenfold over the next few years. She would sneak out and explore the woods, or towns around their kingdom. Actually getting lost a few times, but as always her father would send his greatest guards and they would bring her back. She took to learning archery and even picking up a sword one day. It was against her fatherís orders, but it was clear during her free time she would chose to do or learn whatever she wanted to, though many of her choices were frown upon as they were seen as unlady like.
Her older brothers were always the ones meant for greatness in her fatherís eyes. So when the kingdom once again had to show its...reluctant willingness to follow the choice of siding with dragons he was asked to send at least one of his own children to attend the school. There was unrest and choosing who would go was difficult. The King did not wish to send his eldest son, yet he wanted to send someone of skill. It was then Inara spoke up, stating she would freely go. Her father thought it a horrible idea, she was too weak, and would never suit at representing their country. It was then she challenged any of her brothers to a duel or contest of their choosing, only if she won would Inara be allowed to go. Thinking this would not only make his choice easier but also put the young hot blooded princess in her place The King agreed. And to everyone's surprise no matter that challenge Inara stood the victor.
Unable to deny his word King Ravus sent his daughter to the academy. Knowing he'd get something in his favor no matter the outcome. If she failed and fell while trying to bond with a dragon she'd be out of his hair, and the other kingdoms would allow leave him be to seemingly mourn the loss. But if she succeeded Inara would make him and the kingdom look well favored in rest of the worldís eyes. No matter the outcome he was sure he'd be happy with it. And Inara could not have been happier about leaving the cage of her life and the harsh eyes of her father behind, feeling as if she were free for the first time in her life.more pictures
