Perfection. It's the only thing Jaqueline strives for. Since she was a small child, Jaq 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. Jaq has been raised from birth to be a princess worthy of the Shinem 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 her 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 Jaq 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, Jaq 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.

Jaquie 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 (except maybe her youngest sister who seems to despise her) and is very accepting of all of them. Jaq 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.

It was the first warm night of Summer when the bells began to toll in announcement of the birth of Princess Jaqueline Elisabeta Holloway. The first born child of the royals was announced to the public three days later and the subjects of the Shinem Kingdom rejoiced when she was announced the heir to the throne at the ceremony. Jaquie 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 "Jaq" by her father, the little princess was the joy of the king and queen's lives.

It was a six year battle that her father the king fought in order for his advisors and nobles to give in to the idea of her being named heir. For years, the king and queen had been struggling to create a male heir to take over the crown. Jaqueline may have been their first child, but they bore two sons after her, neither of which made it past their infancy stages. However, a second daughter was born when Jaq was two, and another when she was four. The royal couple tried every year, letting their governesses care for the babies as they continued to work for a baby boy. When their fourth daughter was born, the king finally won his battle to name Jaqueline the Shinem heir. It was clear that a son was extremely unlikely to be born to the family now.

And so, at the age of six, Jaquie 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 France, 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, Jaq 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."

However, when Jaq turned eleven, a son was finally born to her parents who made it past his infancy. The baby was sickly, hardly walking until he was twice the age he was supposed to being walking at. No matter, the nobles still wanted the boy to be named the new heir to Shinem. It didn't matter that the boy was weak -- in fact, it made things much simpler for them to eventually control their future king. But Jaquie's father refused, claiming that he'd already spent years training her to be the future queen. And so she remained the Crown Princess. Her parents tried once more for another son, but another daughter was born, and the two finally gave up.

Jaq 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, Jaquie 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 Jaq 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.

One night, Jaq's mother and father sat her down after a council meeting and began to explain to her the true state that the country was in. More than half of Shinem disagreed with the idea of having a female heir. Because of this, she would have to marry as soon as possible in order to keep her hold on the country.

It was at this time, when Jaq 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.

Rɪᴅɪɴɢ Aʙɪʟɪᴛɪᴇs:
Jaqueline loves to be outdoors and therefore loves to ride. She has a gorgeous stallion of her own whom she calls Morning, for she rides him for an hour before breakfast almost every morning. She is a great horseback rider but still believes there is more to be learned.

Fɪɢʜᴛɪɴɢ Aʙɪʟɪᴛɪᴇs:
Jaquie is not very strong physically, but she has enough strength in her arms to pull back a bow. She was the only girl in her family to learn how to shoot, as her father believed she should know how to defend herself once she was queen. She isn't amazing by any means, but she can definitely hit her mark.

Rᴇᴀᴅɪɴɢ Aʙɪʟɪᴛɪᴇs:
Jaq loves to read and has been reading above her level for as long as she can remember. She spends much of her free time in the castle libraries and owes most of her intelligence and knowledge to the books she has read over the years.

Sᴛᴜᴅʏ Hᴀʙɪᴛs:
As the heir, Jaq has many things she needs to learn to rule a kingdom. She has been in lessons since she was six years old and has been studying thoroughly ever since. She worries about the time when she'll eventually become Queen and therefore is cramming everything in as quickly as possible.
