Amalline d'Anderville (Lakbah/Laktarl)
The young princess of the realm, ready to change the world whether you want her to or not...
Amalline has dark brown hair and deep brown eyes with fair skin. As her features have matured, she is told her resemblance to her mother grows. With this, her soft spot with her father and brother continues to grow. Having grown up in the castle, she has always dressed well. Over the past year, her clothing has changed noticeable, but only at certain times. As long as she is in the walls of the castle and performing princessly duties, she continues to wear her royal attire. However, when she is out and about she is either donning the robes commonly associated with clerics or more common peasantish clothing.
I was born to Duke Caldric & Lady Amberline d’Anderville. My birth brought mixed emotions to my family, as I entered the world, my beloved mother left it. My father named me after her, chosing a name that was close to hers instead of giving me her name because he didn’t want me to have the same fate as hers early in life. Amal means hope, expectation and aspiration and Line means noble. So I am the hope of the nobles for a better life… or at least that’s what I’ve come to take of it.
I admire my father and think that the way he is taking care of our area is admirable, even though some of the things he does I don’t agree with, I know he doesn’t agree either, but thinks it is the only way to keep some of the freedoms for his people. I am fed up with the political situation and have decided to do what I can to help rid my father of the nuisance known as the Empire of Maldar and help get our people their freedoms back.
I spent my first 17 years of life learning and then eventually turning my studies Bahamut, following the beliefs of my family. Although the community had several different religions in the area I wasn’t exposed much to them except of course Bane.
She taught me to fight back against those that would dare to take my freedoms and encourage others to do the same. Understanding that things need to change, but with the right nudges the change can benefit us. I will not speak poorly of Bahamut, but was no longer finding solace in his teachings. I’d like to think that my father understands my urges and sends me and the group on some of our missions by way of encouraging me. I know that the people I’m with are very capable, but will need the help of Avandra to keep them well so they can help affect the changes they are helping to make.
When my father had Silaura the Grey arrested, she was brought to the castle dungeons to await her trip to Maldar. I happened upon her as she was being escorted to the dungeon. I was immediately drawn to her determination. She wasn’t weeping because she’d been caught, she was instead trying to figure out what purpose she must have here. I snuck down later that night to visit her in her cell, little did I realize how that would change my life. Silaura’s escort was delayed, giving me about a week of frequent visits in which I started to learn more of Avandra. Silaura’s words taught me to fight back against those that would dare to take my freedoms and encourage others to do the same. Understanding that things need to change, but with the right nudges the change can benefit us.
I will not speak poorly of Bahamut, but was no longer finding solace in his teachings. I’d like to think that my father understands my newly found beliefs and sends me and the group on some of our missions by way of encouraging me.
With Avandra on my side, I’ve decided it’s time to take a more involved approach to changing things our little area. I’m going to need a team of independent adventurers in order to pull this off.
One of the people I need to make sure is on my team is that squirrel girl (you know, the one that gave me Sir Nutkin on my 8th birthday). Her present intrigued me as a child. I thought it was a cute idea, too bad he ran away so quickly. Closer to my 10th year, I started to wonder what had become of her and started to venture out into town looking for her. I found a new comfort in wearing more common clothes and not always be on display as the princess in town. After watching Kestral from afar on a few trips, she approached me knowing exactly who I was and wanted to know what I wanted. From there we became fast friends outside of the formalities that I was accustomed.
