Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the ladies of the court | Character Bios – A Reluctant Assassin

As a prince, Dvarius dreams of finding love – like his parents did. However, his father’s unexpected death has cut short his time. His mother mourns deeply and the palace advisors push Prince Dvarius to choose a bride from one of the more influential families of their country.

There are even a couple of Princesses from other nations (younger daughters) who hope to form a more permanent alliance with Auralius.

Below are a handful of the ladies (only some of whom we meet in the first book).

And so, without further adieu…

Introducing… Lady Celestia

Lady Celestia is from a very well-known family who makes their home in Orum – the capitol city of Auralius.

She has even, on several different occasions, visited the palace. Prince Dvarius knows her and her family from those visits.

Her parents have been staunch supporters of the Fortine family so she would be a welcome addition to the royal family.
