Since she was a small child, Lani has felt the need to go above and beyond in everything she does. She completes every task, no matter how big or how small, to utter perfection, despite the time it may take. She can focus on one thing for hours at a time, something other people tend to struggle with. Distractions don’t exist in her world, nor are they able to exist in her world. Lani has been raised from birth to be a princess worthy of the Tivell family crown. As the heir to her family, she knows she must always act — calm and wise and perfect. Ever since she was old enough to understand words, she has been told of how her actions impact the future of the Tivell family. If she does one thing wrong, she could ruin the family’s legacy for years to come. She understands the power she holds in her hands and the responsibilities that lie on her shoulders.But there is more to Lani than the beautiful, polished woman with straight posture that her subjects see. She is smart, clever, and knows how to manipulate the power she holds into the kingdom’s advantage rather than her family’s. She knows when to be outspoken and provide her opinion and she can often make her father listen to her ideas and do things her way. She seems to always have a solution to a problem and is always ready to solve it. She loves riddles and will think for days to figure one out. She is intelligent and witty and knows exactly how to manipulate a situation to her favor.Yet beneath her cold, polished, and manipulative exterior, Lani is a genuinely kind people-pleaser. She hates being wrong and it's one of her worst fears to make a mistake, afraid it will impact the entire kingdom. She has a great sense of humor but usually doesn't show it, as a soon-to-be queen shouldn't laugh at petty jokes. However when she is alone with her siblings, she will laugh and tease and play games all day long. She loves being outdoors, though she is careful to never be caught climbing a tree by anyone but her family. She isn't afraid to get down and dirty, but is usually very careful to clean herself off immediately after, so her parents won't find out. It isn't very fitting of a princess to been seen with mud where her blush should be on her cheeks. Lani is extremely dedicated to her family. She's the oldest of her siblings, therefore witnessing each of their births and treasuring the first time she held each one as a baby. She has a motherly disposition about her, but tries not to be too bossy. She has a wonderful relationship with everyone in her family and is very accepting of all of them. Lani is not a confident person, but she knows her family accepts her for who she is on the inside even if the kingdom may not. She depends on their support and fears the time when she must one day rule the kingdom on her own.Sᴛʀᴇɴɢᴛʜs: Aylani is very intelligent and clever, always knowing how to solve a problem. She also knows how to manipulate situations to her favor and how to manuever her way to court politics. She has a genuinely kind disposition as well, making it difficult for a person, or a kingdom, to dislike her.Wᴇᴀᴋɴᴇssᴇs: Aylani is not confident in herself or her choices, whatsoever. She is always afraid she'll make the wrong decision, though she rarely does. She never acts like her carefree self in front of visitors and has a polished exterior her subjects only see. She is also not much of a romantic, making that a difficult part of politics for her. And she is a huge people-pleaser, which can sometimes impact her decisions.Gᴏᴀʟs:◆ To be the best queen she can be◆ To rule confidentlyFᴇᴀʀs:◆ Losing her title as heir◆ Her subjects hating her true personality◆ Being alone to ruleDʀᴇᴀᴍs:◆ To be herself in front of everyone, including her subjects◆ To see the worldLɪᴋᴇs:✓ Being outdoors✓ Reading✓ Climbing trees✓ Playing with her younger siblings✓ Learning new things✓ Being herself✓ Swimming✓ Dogs✓ FlowersDɪsʟɪᴋᴇs:✗ Being alone✗ Her emotionless exterior✗ Bees✗ SpidersAᴘᴘᴇᴀʀᴀɴᴄᴇ:(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]Hᴇɪɢʜᴛ: Five feet, five inches.Wᴇɪɢʜᴛ: 117 lbsBʀᴇᴀsᴛ: 36BBᴏᴅʏ Tʏᴘᴇ: Slim, especially where her corset squeezes her stomach.

She received her eye color from her father.Dʀᴇssɪɴɢ Sᴛʏʟᴇ: She is always wearing what she is supposed to be when she is supposed to be. Long gowns are most common, the fanciness of them according to the event or time of day. Most of them have low necklines and some do show her shoulders, something that would be looked down upon if she were anything but a princess. She can essentially get away with wearing whatever she wants, but tends to follow the rules anyways.(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]
Hɪsᴛᴏʀʏ:It was the first warm night of Summer when the bells began to toll in announcement of the birth of Princess Aylani Katherina Elisabeth Tivell. The first born child of the royals was announced to the public three days later and the subjects of the Tivell Kingdom rejoiced when she was announced the heir to the throne at the ceremony. Aylani was an adorable baby girl, always running after her father down the hallways and trying to climb into her mother's lap when she was sewing, all the while giggling uncontrollably. Quickly dubbed "Lani" by her father, the little princess was the joy of the king and queen's lives. At the age of six, Lani began her training to be the heir. Sewing, reading, public speaking, geography, mathematics, archery (her father wanted her to learn to defend herself), even lessons on how to walk properly. Everything she did from that point on had to be perfect. She would be the next Queen, the next ruler of the Tivell Kingdom, and her subjects had to respect her despite her age. She did fairly well in her lessons, especially reading. She loved to read, spending much of her free time in the palace library. When she wasn't in her studies or in the library, Lani was exploring the wide and beautiful outdoors. She would climb the tall trees in the gardens, despite the dress she would be wearing, and swim naked in the clear pond behind the palace with only her maid to watch over her. She loved running and rolling in the grass and was never afraid to get "down and dirty."Lani was around for each of her siblings' births, waiting impatiently outside the room with her father as her mother gave birth inside. She was always one of the first ones to meet her baby brothers and sisters, treasuring the first time she held each and every one of them. Since before she understood what it was, Lani felt a protective and motherly instinct towards her little brothers and sisters. She wanted to hide them away from the world and keep them safe forever. She tried to be a role model for each one of them, showing off her skills and helping them in the lessons they attended. She would help her sisters read and help her father teach her brothers archery, and always seemed to be right there with her siblings' wet nurses, even when their parents weren't.Unfortunately, as Lani grew older she was forced to spend less and less time with her siblings. She was often brought in to observe council meetings, war meetings, etcetera. She wasn't allowed to speak in them for a few years yet, but she began learning the best ways to manuever her way through politics at age twelve. She began to spend more and more time with her father, learning the correct ways and the good strategies for ruling a kingdom, things her siblings didn't learn, or at least not as much. She shadowed her father for quite a few years, studying his every move very carefully. She watched silently, even, as he arranged a marriage between her and a young lord called Thomas Prescott.She wasn't silent that evening however. For the first time in her life (other than when she screamed as a baby), Lani yelled at her parents and argued with them for hours. She barely wanted a marriage, much less an arranged one with someone she'd never met before. She was so angry, her face turned a bright red and her eyes were puffy from crying by the time she left her parents' quarters. She understood why her father had arranged her marriage -- he needed to soothe a local uprising of a noble family -- but she couldn't understand why it had to be to her. She was learning to rule the kingdom by herself and, truthfully, didn't want to share it with anyone else.She sat alone in her room that night, too angry still to even read, when her father came and spoke to her about the matter once more. He told her that since she was a baby and he had named a girl to take the Tivell crown once he passed, he'd been receiving criticism from lords and noblemen all around the kingdom and even outside their borders. While wasn't afraid of any actual revolts, he had decided to marry her to a man as soon as she was old enough so she had a King able to soothe their subjects. The man would rule only as her consort, and she'd still have power over him, but they would rule as a pair.It was at this time, when Lani was thirteen, that she lost the confidence she'd once had in herself. The naivety she'd once possessed in believing the kingdom accepted her for her faded away and she began to fear the day she would eventually have to rule the kingdom on her own, consort or not. She lacked faith in herself, resorting to her perfect exterior and becoming the polished and unemotional person she is today.When Lani was seventeen, her bodyguard was replaced with a man in his early twenties, whom she and her maid, who was her best friend at the time, befriended very quickly. They became a trio that always seemed to be together, until her maid, Amie, was killed in a rebel attack. The three of them had been strolling in the market in town, when the rebels stormed the market and began slaughtering civilians. Her guard quickly drew his sword and escorted Lani away from the attack as quickly as possible, with Amie just behind them. However rebels surrounded them, demanding they hand the princess over. Amie and Lani looked very similar at the time, with their black hair and nice but casual dresses. Amie noticed this immediately, offering herself to the rebels before Lani could do anything. Amie announced that she was the princess, and one of the rebels swung his sword, removing her head. Lani screamed, too frozen to do anything but let her guard carry her from the battle and deliver her safely back at the palace. It was announced very quickly afterwards that the real princess and heir to the throne was safe and alive, and that the rebels had failed.They hadn't failed in Lani's eyes though. She snuck out of her room a few nights later, hearing rumors of rebels celebrating in a tavern in town. Her guard caught her, but she refused to let him stop her. Instead, he went with her, and the two entered the tavern with angry faces. Lani killed the man that killed Amie herself, moving close to him and driving her dagger into his chest slowly. It was the only time her dark side ever showed, and she won't speak of it to this day. The only person who knows of this night is her guard, who still works as her bodyguard.The next few years passed uneventfully, with the rebels attacking more and more frequently. A few months ago, her betrothed arrived at the palace and Lani met him for the first time. She doesn't hate Thomas, but she definitely dislikes him. She finds him too quiet and too predictable to enjoy, but she spends time with him to make her father happy. Her parents believe she is ready to be crowned the queen, but Lani doesn't think so. She still has major doubts about ruling the kingdom on her own.Gʀᴀɴᴅғᴀᴛʜᴇʀ: Former King Marcus Tivell, deceased(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]Aylani didn't know her grandfather, as he died before she was born.
