Okay here is Gabrielle 2.0.
I am still waiting on a few details here and there in coordination with Calvin and others. I will edit once I have the details, but I think there is enough that I can jump in with a post in the IC.
Name: Gabrielle Bridget Rosewill
Current Alias: William Rosewill
As the public recognizes her.
As all women born into nobility, Gabrielle is a paragon of both grace and beauty. Though not tall, her body is long and slender with curvy hips and plump, inviting breasts. Her thick red hair falls in locks over her shoulders and down her back. With a porcelain complexion, her high rosy cheekbones accent her intense sky-blue eyes and looking into those eyes there is no mistake that she is the King’s daughter. Despite the smile she seems to always offer, there is a sadness in her expression; a hidden burden.
Habits and Quirks
Despite her role and upbringing, Gabrielle has ever wished to please her father, the King, and just as often has found herself red-cheeked and speaking her mind to him. This has often gotten her in trouble. Despite this, she has always taken a keen interest in both the politics and governance of the nation. It is not a woman’s role to roam the countryside spreading the word and goodwill of the King, but she will do her duty nonetheless.
For the love she bears for her family and her nation, she will stop at nothing to do what is right and just... regardless of her naivety.
Gabrielle is the second born of twins, and is the prized eldest daughter of King Reinhard. Many refer to her as the “jewel” of the Court, but just as many whisper that she is far too strong-willed for her own good. Despite her status as a woman she has never been afraid to speak her mind, and it has caused her trouble and pain more than once.
As was expected, her upbringing was filled with the typical studies of any woman: how to run any household, and act as any graceful lady. Though much of these youthful years are unremarkable, the princess showed an unnatural interest in both ruling and courtly intrigue. perhaps in part due to her kinship with her twin brother William, with whom she has shared much. For many years the princess would sneak into feasts and parties, and from the shadows she would watch, and listen.
When she came of age, she often sat alongside her father and brothers at Court, listening to his governance of a nation. Gabrielle has never had any lack of suitors seeking her hand in marriage, even during a time of war. She was often presented at Court to her many suitors. King Reinhard has not yet secured a Marriage Contract. That Gabrielle just recently turned 16, and remains unmarried, has caused much discussion at Court.
Regardless of her choices she sincerely, if rather naively, believes she will make her father proud.
Much of what she carries are her brother’s possessions: his sword, his horse, even his clothes. They were not at all difficult to obtain in secret. However, beyond all she required to maintain her disguise the most notable item is her family signet ring that she wears on her left ring finger. It is an old heirloom given to her by her mother, and it is never seen off her finger.
Gabrielle also carries a small jeweled dirk
secured around her forearm, and (semi) hidden beneath the sleeves of her garments. Though she has no skill in fighting, she keeps the blade close… just in case.
She also carries a satchel, and inside she secretly carries a finely made dress of dark red satin.
