Beautiful People–July

484bbcce9358bd3861b5cc3ae3f4d629Well, it’s time for Beautiful People again! I thought I’d tackle Atharielle (or Ree) this month. So here you go: a little about my MC’s sister!

1) What’s their favourite food? (Bonus: favourite flavor of chocolate!) Atharielle’s favourite food would probably be butteries, fresh from the oven. Simple, but delicious. Her favourite flavor of chocolate is milk chocolate with raspberry filling.
2) What do they absolutely hate? Atharielle despises injustice above all things. Right and wrong are extremely black-and-white to her, and she is very vocal when she feels that injustice is being done. To her credit, her hatred causes more than words. When her uncle’s actions caused many people to go hungry, she refused to eat any more than they had available to them.
3) What do they enjoy learning about? She enjoys reading about practically anything, but, like many people in her country (Nalycia), is particularly fascinated by history. She’s read most of the trade books in the palace library about Nalycia’s history and has started on the history of Entlaunia (the country just to the north)
4) Who is the most influential person in their life? Up until his death, the most influential person in Ree’s life was her father. His ideals and beliefs of right and wrong greatly shaped her own. She admired the strength that it took to accomplish his little rebellion against her uncle’s stranglehold on the kingdom. Since her father’s death, she has continued to be guided by his memory. If not for her falling out with Alaen, her brother, following their father’s death, he probably would have taken their father’s place in Ree’s life.
5) What is their childhood fear? As a child, Ree was afraid of people being angry, especially men. Whenever she was around someone who was angry, she inevitably ended up hiding behind her mother’s skirts.4bc4def230c54d71e8a6d55f24c734bb
6) What is something they have always secretly dreamed of doing, but thought impossible? Though she loves her home and would never dream of leaving it for long, she has always dreamed of visiting another country, just for a little bit.
7) What is something he is impractically afraid of? She is afraid of being all alone, both spatially and relationally. Though she tends to be quiet, she finds comfort in even just knowing others are nearby.
8) Are they a night owl or morning person? Ree is more of a morning person. She loves to watch the sun come up or go for a horseback ride before anyone else is up–or both.
9) Do they say everything that pops into their head, or leave a lot unsaid? This really depends on what mood she’s in. If she is angry or upset, she tends to say everything that pops into her head as she thinks it, but she is quiet and very careful of others’ feelings otherwise.
10) What are their nervous habits? Ree’s nervous habits can include pinching her lips together and setting objects down with greater than usual force.

    Oh I confess, I read that as her favourite food being “butterflies” and I was slightly judging her. lol! I’m sorry! >_< Anyway, Atharielle sounds like an awesome character and I totally understand her fear of angry people. They are kind of scary! Most definitely.
    Thanks for linking up with us!

      haha Cait, I did the same thing! I read butterflies and was like, “Butterflies? What?” before taking a closer look and realizing my mistake.

      I like Atharielle a lot! Is she from The King’s Bluff? And that would make her the prince’s younger sister?

      I love those pictures, by the way.

      • Hmm, maybe I should have put “butteries” in quotations or something to avoid horrifying my readers!

        Atharielle is from KB and she is the prince’s younger sister, yes. Good sleuthing!

        Thank you! Pinterest is a wonderful thing.

        Thanks for reading and commenting!
