    • Anastasie first travelled to Regalia in 295 AC at the age of 17, seeking out an expansion to her education as well as business prospects for her wealthy aristocratic family. She has since spent the past several years travelling to and from the city in respective bursts - although it became her permanent home upon inheriting the Corneuille Barony. Her primary career within the city is ascribed to her position as matriarch of the De Letoirneau family - through the court politics and statesmanship that comes along with it. She inhabits her personal manor estate on the outskirts of the Holy City.
    • Anastasie was born in the Ithanian Hivre of Haute Puisse, to Gabrielle and Armand du Polignac. The eldest daughter of her family, she was raised in incredible luxury and opulence as is commonly seen with Ithanian families - being groomed and prepared to inherit their titles and business. While biologically an only child, she does have an adopted sister called Solaine; Ana is also fairly close to her extended family, notably her aunt Sophia (a significant mentor figure in her life), and cousins Olivier and Helene. Anastasie is married to her long-time partner and love interest, Ernesta (formerly of the House von Rahm).
    • Anastasie’s ambitions are constantly shifting depending on her current intent, and occurrences around her. Easily her most significant (and infamous) motivation at the present is the removal of Florent de Gosselin from the throne of her homeland Ithania; a man who warred against her culture and marked her as a criminal. Linked to this is a prolonged ambition to maintain and shield the Ithanian culture, as well as more Progressive ideas as a whole and the incredibly lavish lifestyle she grew to enjoy as one of the (at least formerly) wealthiest individuals in Regalia.

    Eye Colour: Aquatic Ocean Blue.


    Hair Colour: Sandy Brown.


    Hair Style: Extravagant updos involving intricate curls.


    Skin Colour: Creamy white, although lightly tanned from time in regions of warmer climate.


    Clothing: Elaborate and opulent gowns and jewellery, displaying her wealth as the Princois Notoise would suggest.


    Height: 5’5


    Body Build: Curvaceous

    [​IMG]
    • Ana's head is quite small and dainty, with an evidently rounded appearance and shape to it. Her skin is a creamy porcelain white - enhanced by makeup in a constant attempt to maintain its perfection. Her eyes are wide and distinctively set in her face, similarly enhanced - with sea-blue irises tinting their centre. She is an incredibly expressive individual and this shows upon her face - where she is jovial, frustrated or anywhere in between, she will usually make little attempt to hide her emotions unless she fears the results. The youthful Ithanian has sandy brown hair, which is almost always intricately styled; along with her make-up, herself and her lady's maid often spend an hour or beyond preparing herself in a morning, a displayed attempt of vanity and glamour. Waves of curls and fantastic updos, quite often decorated with jewels and/or a tiara.
    • Ana is of a fairly average height, standing at 5 foot and 5 inches - although this can often be emphasised by a refined posture and heeled shoes. Her figure is obviously curvaceous - visible even under the layers of silks comprising her gowns, and often emphasised by it. Her broad hips are in a distinct juxtaposition to her slim waist, slimmed by years of corsetry. The Ithanian could not be described as slim, however much of her body fat is gracefully positioned around her torso and thighs. She holds virtually no muscle definition within her body - the only exception being a slight build-up in her legs developed from more cultured activities.
    • Anastasie is an ardent lover of her home culture and its excesses, and will display this upon herself with pride - her fashion style is incredibly extravagant. Comprising of fine silks and taffetas; flowing skirts and fitted bodices and always with vivid colour to it - designed for elegance and visual beauty. Golden trimmings, threads or jewel embellishments are also distinct in her attire, displaying her wealth in a physical form. She can almost always be seen wearing some form of jewellery upon her body (usually quite a lot) - including the jewels upon her hair, she may be wearing rich necklaces or rings, especially so her wedding ring presented to her by her wife. While she will never travel with a weapon, she always wields a trusty fan with her, for its many graceful and practical usages.
    • Ana has a very soft and clear tone of her voice - she very rarely is forced to raise her voice, yet at the same time is the opposite of quiet. Her accent is distinctly Ithanian, although this has over the past few years melded into an aristocratic Ceardian accent traditional found in the Imperial court. She is clearly well spoken, possessing refined linguistic skills in both her native tongue in d’Ithanie, as well as Common. Just as with her facial expressions, she will display her emotions through vocabulary and tone of voice - although to many who know the stateswoman, it would be said her silence is often just as impactful and noteworthy as her eloquent speech.

    • How would your character express Happiness and Contentedness?
    Ana is always one to prominently display happiness and joviality publicly whenever she can, often exaggeratedly if she feels it important to an interaction, although ensuring dignity. Despite the commonality of these positive emotions, they will usually hide the true extent of her emotion in the interior. Despite this, she sees it as a social must to ensure joyousness, at least in those she is conversing with.

    • How would your character respond to experiencing Fear?
    Anastasie has lived a fairly sheltered and protected life by and large - aside from a handful of incidents in the Ithanian courts, or Regalian streets. She reacts incredibly poorly when struck with true fear, freezing up and losing her senses, relying on others to help or shield her. If there is no one available to do so, she will either make her attempt to flee, or simply break down entirely. Lesser fears will more often than not be cast away by whatever means she makes available, or kept out of sight so they remain off of her thoughts.

    • How would your character respond to experiencing Stress?
    Her position as a stateswoman and historical roles in the court and aristocracy has refined her ability to deal with stress, to a certain degree. It can help refine her senses with a sense of urgency or necessity, pushing her to her limits in what she is attempting to accomplish. However this will hardly always be the case, and on occasion - although mostly in private - the weights upon her will grow too overbearing. She is also a notable drinker, a habit which developed to excess largely as a result of stresses and concerns that she proved otherwise unable to deal with.

    • How does your character view Law and Authorities?
    Ana holds considerable respect for the Laws of the land, and the authorities that uphold them - however, while she personally is always prone to maintaining standards set and especially so in a public presence, she is not averse to more quiet and cautious subversion if she is convinced it is a true necessity. Such necessities are largely based entirely around her family’s survival and success.

    • How does your character feel about Races other than their own?
    As a progressively leaning Ithanian, Anastasie is quite tolerant of non-Ailor races - she perceives a large number of other races to be respectable, and instead of holding a racial view of discrimination, holds a more cultural inclination - how civilised a group is. This means she may view a courteous and progressive Allar or Qadir in exceptionally greater regard than a barbaric, backwards Ailor. She does however view some races (Orcs, Varran and Kathar) as being naturally more barbaric, and hence more distasteful.

    • How does your character feel about Religion for themselves, and other faiths?
    Publically, Ana will always make a showing of Unionist devotion - by a mixture of necessity and habit. Internally however, her experiences in politics and elsewhere over the past several years have shaken her faith in the Unionist church and its many entities. Quietly she is still a believer, but strips much of the faith back for her own personal spiritual relations. To her the Unionist faith has long been predisposed against her own culture and beliefs, and as such is ever the reformist. Zealots to her are a distasteful people no matter their faith, and in a similar light to race she holds little prejudice against people of other religious identities.


    • How does your character feel about the Arcane and Magical in the world?
    This depends almost entirely on what their usage is. Overall Ana is generally very uncaring and nonchalant about magical presence, although as with anything in life she believes it is however it is used or acts that defines it. For example magics related to the Void she may find putrid, while healing or ‘light’ magics she would perceive more positively. She does however hold an absolute detest for sanguine and their ilk.


    • How does your character feel towards their family?
    She is always caring and protective towards her family (at least, from her own worldview). In her mind, it is part of her duty to steer her family members as best she can, despising herself if she perceives she has failed here in any regard. Whether this is seen as overbearing or affection, she never the less holds her closest relatives in incredibly high regard.

    • What is your character the most proud of about themselves?
    Her mind; Ana has always existed as a bright individual and does enjoy the pursuit of knowledge, going to considerable lengths within her vast means to further herself in this. Perhaps falsely, she views herself as intelligent and cunning, skills harnessed from years of Statesman training and in the scene of politics. She also holds incredibly pride in her appearance and looks, but this opinion of herself is far more fragile and often disingenuous.

    • What motivates your character to move forward and better their life?
    She has various driving motivational forces, whether this being in the name of her family, in fulfilling her own vices and cravings for wealth and power, although most prominently she will never fail to act and press herself onward if she believes herself to be doing it in the name of culture. A glass of wine always helps, however.

    • What is your character's biggest insecurity?
    Ana feels insecure about a number of things. Her constant obsession with maintaining her own beauty provides a constant stigma of insecurity upon her natural looks, almost creating a vicious cycle of appearance and vanity (one her wealth and background naturally fuels). Another primary insecurity of hers is based around her place in the world - she sees a constant need to validate herself and her status with wealth, power and titles, and fight what she often sees as an attack upon her culture and liberal viewpoints from those who oppose.

    • What is your character's biggest fear?
    The loss of her freedom (both physical and mental) and her way of life - she holds a constant terror at the threat of not being able to act as she wishes within her own mindset, and as such she will always do whatever she can to maintain this. This exists to such a deeply rooted point that she was once terrified of wearing corsets, although after much encouragement slowly grew used to them.

    To be rewritten in the future

    Anastasie was born Anastasie-Stephanie Louisa Aigle Obraive Illuminee du Polignac, to Gabrielle and Armand du Polignac on the 23rd November 275 AC, in the Ithanian Hivre Queendom of Haute Puisse. She spent her first decades being raised in the family's Ithanian chateaux and palaces, amongst much of her extended family and under the doting of her mother, being the eldest daughter and heir to the family's titles. Here she also enjoyed strong relationships with her relatives throughout her youth - playful competition and constant mingling. One individual specifically - her aunt Sophia - very quickly became a role model to the young Ithanian.

    From a young age she was granted a fairly broad aristocratic education - one centred around the expected behaviours of a young Ithanian lady and debutente, as well as literary and aritmetic technique. She proved a quick and intent learner - already able to speak and write both d'Ithanie and Common fluently by the age of 9. By time her pre-teen years, this education shifted more into the focus of Statesfigure - something the girl soon found she delighted in. The studious young lady now took to her studies on history, societies and finance; as well as administrative skills, and talents necessary for survival in regal courts. The finest tutors and governesses available to her family in Ithania were brought to this end.

    At the age of 14, Anastasie experienced a more dramatic lifestyle shift - removed from her sheltered and secluded early life, she now began to spend more time amidst the Hivre courts, as well as those of the Lusits Kingdom and Vixhall Principality. It took her time to adapt to this, although she soon embraced her new situation and surroundings. Her focus on ardent study slipped: instead falling into intrigue and gossip; drinking and indulgence; and a constant cycle and desire to outdo those around her. While eventually she abandoned this and travelled to the Regalian Archipelago's Ithanian Lordships with her aunt to take up a more diplomatic role, the period left much influence upon her.

    In the archipelago she would soon return properly to her studies, and develop into a more measured and collected lady - likely resultant from more leisured surrounding and her aunt's strict etiquette, although her vibrant Haute spirit never died down. She also spent time at the Academy for Aristocratic Education, navigating the very different mentalities present there cautiously. From there, much of her life was spent in ambassadorial fashion, hopping between the archipelago and her home Sovereignty. Joining the services of the Ithanian Lobby as both a courtier and a diplomat, she began to steadily built her repute - and avoided many of the Empire's crises spending her time in Loiree.

    She would not evade these flames forever however, struggling to react to her aunt's excommunication, periods of exclusion and isolation, only being topped following the conquest of her homeland. She fought back however, officially adopting the historical name of De Letoirneau and endeavouring on a mission of gathering titles, power and prestige. This power came over time with a number of successes, ascending for a time to the status of Duchess of Loiree-Bas and Finance Secretary to the Imperial Crown. These titles and positions soon wore away however, replaced by the lady's desire to concentrate on family with her new wife; returning to the opulent seclusion of Vixhall to raise her children and enjoy her years. She also experienced a phase of wanderlust, travelling far across Aloria to the sweeping sceneries of Gallovia, to the magnificent marble cities of the Altalar and the grand Songaskian pearl bastions of Farah'deen.

    Recently however, Ana has desired a return to the Regalian Crown Isle - feeling it right that she come back to tie off some loose ends, and perhaps even aid her family in a resurgence of grandeur...

    Edits made in purple, and Erudite and Eloquence replaced with Tactical Thought and Persuasive Charm (more edited slightly, hopefully it works). Tell me if any other changes are needed!

    Dibs! I'll be taking over this application.
    • Need ya to remove the talents part of this application, as it is no longer a part of the template.
    • Other than that, don't forget that Ithanians get a +5 to bodycare. You aren't required to take this, though.
    Make the changes in your color of choice and tag me when you're done.

    Made the quick edits, and threw in the bodycare thing you mentioned because free culture points.

    Message me if there's anything else I need to do, and I'll have it done asap!

    This has been due a pretty large rewrite for a long time, since I haven't really updated it in about a year besides adding proficiencies.
    Aged her up to 20, allowing her to be educated in the School of Statesman (With added points changes, life story rewrite etc). Aside from that, the Visual Information and Personality have been slightly updated, although are essentially the same. Also added a bunch of extra information brackets, just to add a little to the app.

    @Percuriam Think it's time for a re-review!

    Another, shorter rewrite - this time in relation to the creation of the new De Letoirneau family! Only major part of this is the addition of a couple of paragraphs to life story, describing her recent situation and explaining such (highlighted in green). As well as this, mentions of the Du Polignac name have been fixed accordingly, as well as there being overhauls of some of the unreviewed sections (Ala relationships).


    Re-review time! @Percuriam

    Quick rewrite to fit with the new proficiency system, essentially carrying over her old proficiencies to fit the current system. As well as this, some minor edits to life story just to fit the changes in School - nothing too severe.

    @Percuriam
    I understand you're probs a liiittle busy right now so i'll wait patiently.

    You are one language over the cap, as common is no longer free.

    Was made aware of this yesterday, so I edited to add in Linguistic Proficiency to account for the +1 language she knows - apologies for not notifying on that. But as a question before I give the quick fix, how exactly does Linguistic Prof work? I'm aware it is +6 for a language, but do those 6 points add up to make a full language, or are they all necessary to know the language at all? Thanks in advance.

    This was due another nice rewrite, so I went and aged Ana up a bit, in addition to making numerous changes:
    - Profs redone, decided to remove extra language.
    - Personality paragraphs somewhat rewritten to be closer to how she is RPed
    - A few life story edits covering these things.

    Re-review time! @Percuriam

    I totally missed the hobby points on the wiki apparently! I added some in, redistributed the points a little bit accordingly and then stuck it all in the red.
