~ 10 Bitter Frost Moon, 1424 AL
~ 53 Years Old
Married at seventeen to a tragically and equally as young King Ronan, Elise had not lived much of her life before she was thrown into the middle of kingdom politics. But she quickly found that she thrived in such an environment.
Before Percival usurped his father, Elise was the light and life of Castle Tirav. She was passionate about her duties and her hobbies, as well as a considerate and fair queen. Now, on the run with her husband and her daughter, that light has dimmed. Elise longs to save her son, but cannot fathom betraying the family she has sided with for the past ten years.
Average height for a human and undoubtedly the shortest member of the family - oh how she longs for the days when her children were still smaller than her. She is slim, the figure of a graceful lady who hasn’t swung a sword or done a day of hard labour in her life, and her ashen grey skin tone may trick one into thinking that Elise is constantly ill.
One should not be fooled by her appearance though. Her figure belies the true strength hidden beneath and her skin tone is a result of her deathtrance magic.
Queen Elise looks exactly the same as you remember.
Her hair is, somehow, still styled in a ridiculously fancy fashion, though you notice that fiery red colour beginning to fade near the roots. Her face is still smooth. Not a single wrinkle more than she had ten years ago, which seems strange to you. I would have thought the stress of… all of this would have gotten to her.
There is something off though. The Elise you remember had a brightness to her; where Ronan was a storm raging through the castle, Elise was the sun shining through the clouds. Now, her expression is… darker. The smile she sends your way is not quite as vibrant as you expected it to be and, if you look closely, it doesn’t quite reach her eyes.
It is a shocking contrast to the Elise you once new. You falter, failing to return the smile as you would have long ago.
Elise has a soft, oval face, that is deceptively smooth and almost free of wrinkles (except for the crows feet at the corners of her eyes) despite her age. Her lips are plump and a modest red. She has a dusting of freckles over her cheeks and neck.
