Desert Queens are ~Not~ meant to be dropped off in the middle of the woods by well meaninged unicorns to live off the charity of tribal hillfolk!

She's only thirteen, or fourteen, poor thing. Kicked off her Suthen throne for being White. (The Suthen are in the south, similar to Arabs and East Indians.) This is the least polished she ever has been or will be in her career. Not only is it an awkward developmental stage but she detests deer meat. The fatherland does NOT call to her. She would much rather be back in the harem studying past diplomats and dead princes, discreetly writing laws, riding her snow white pony, and being generally beloved and useless. She would even rather be back working as a house slave for Hira than free as a bird and stranded in a sea of uncouth ethnic background....How exactly there came to be a white royal line is a sad story I'm going to publish later. But you know how there's always alliances and brides being passed around like party favors...In any case. This 'rescue' of NorthWind's is really his first attempt at international diplomacy. Mainly: Dump southern empress in northern prince's lap and voila! Their kids make world peace. Er, it's actually a lot more complicated but this perfumed blonde package is the bombshell that shatters Alioth's pre~teen happiness...and next time I'll draw her prettier. I wasn't paying attention to who it was exactly forming under my pencil. ((All you RPer's out there, are taking notes, aincha? Well don't even TRY blackmailing Alioth about it! She'll run ya through!))
