Christine de SorelName:
Christine de SorelAliases:
Governor’s daughterCurrent Location:
Crown Princess Victoria of SwedenGeneral appearance:
A short woman with a kind and heartwarming smile. Her long dark brown hair always tied up in interesting styles and always decorated beautifully. It is long enough so that if is just hang loosely it would reach the end of her back. Her eyes have a nice and deep brown colour that seems to generate a cozy warmth by itself. Like her father she too in fair skinned but because Christine is a nature loving person she often found a bit more tan than her old man. She does have a nice smile and shows it often. In fact she seems to smile just as much as her father avoids it.
She has a good posture that makes her features stand out much more clearly. She is slim but also shapely built and has received many glances from the men in France. Her attention to detail and desire to always look her best also made her very expected on the floor at noble balls.Clothing:
The simple way of describing her wardrobe is elegant and fashionable. However there are two different ways of seeing her. One is at the balls and social gatherings where she is mostly clad in the finest dresses from France and often with beautiful jewelry to match it. Silk ribbons often hold her hair in place and several of those can be used to give her thick hair a shape that seems very interesting. Her dresses are often embroiled with beautiful images that are only subtly seen because their colour are often just a different shade than that of the dress itself, but it gives a wonderful play in the fabric and makes it all the more interesting.
On less formal occasions though, like when at home or talking a walk around the estate or in nature, Christine enjoys more simple dresses. Something that is more suited for the warm climate of the Caribbean. For this she often choose something where her arms is free and where there is only one or two layers of fabric to avoid it being too heavy or too warm. The colours she often chooses are Greenish, Pinks and whites. She also likes Bordeaux and rosy colours. Anything with warmth in it. But even her simple dresses show signs of her father’s wealth. They too are well crafted and have plenty of detail. Personality:
If people didn’t know, they would never have guessed that Christine was the daughter of Leon de Sorel, as she has inherited none of his traits. Even in appearance she bears no similarity to him. Where he is cold and greedy, Christine is generous and friendly. She believes that there is good in everyone and that people should forgive rather than fight. She also believes that a smile can do so much more than a frown so it is not often she is seen without a smile on her face. She enjoys life, even if she lives under the rule of someone who seems to be the reincarnation of grief and despair.
Christine love nature and the Caribbean only enhanced this interest in her. Where she normally had to find a way out of Paris to find anything remotely nature-like, the Caribbean offers not only a lot of beautiful scenery but also different scenery than she is used to. She will often take long walks to avoid the speeches of sorrow from her father. She is also curious as to how other people live their lives. She don’t mind visiting town to see how those less fortunate manage to go on with their life and how they can do with so little as they have. So she often shows her generosity when she sees people she can help.
Coming from a military family means that she often had to say good bye to her brothers and even on occasion her father. Many of the men who visited their home were military officers so naturally Christine came to learn a lot about these people. And while she does have the uttermost respect for them and admire them for their courage, she does not like the idea of war one bit. And no reason seem to persuade her as to why soldiers have to go to war or why sailors should seek battle at sea. In fact Christine may be a bit naïve, but she fully believes that the world could work without war. And she would gladly explain why to anyone who feels the opposite, not necessarily to prove that she is right, but because a good conversation is always delightful and especially about such a topic as peace.
She can be quite stubborn and very direct at times. Especially when it comes to those who are men of war or something similar. She doesn’t let a fancy uniform persuade her to change her mind and even though she is quite patriotic, even the white flag of France can’t make her feel good about conflict. In fact she has often sought away from any kind of conflict and mostly with her father. She would rather just accept whatever is told and then cry about it later. And this is the same with anyone else, it just often don’t happen so much with others.Birth place:

Born as the last of three children, Christine de Sorel had very few obligations in life. Even less than most other girls because the only one regarded as anything in the family was the oldest of the three siblings: Bastien who was his father’s favorite. This meant that aside from her having to behave according to class at social gatherings, Christine could do mostly as she pleased and even from a very early age she found a love for nature and the trees and plants that grows in the wild. In their home she often loved the flowers that her mother decorated the house with and often enjoyed walking in the garden as well and observing the Gardener at work. In fact she was often allowed to help him. Of course she had to promise the gardener not to get herself dirty as he feared to get in trouble.
Christine’s education went very well. Her tutors was quite pleased with her ability to learn and her desire to seek information. She proved not only to be smart but also quite resourceful and even witty at times. However most of her opinions differed from what her teachers desired, they often had discussions about right and wrong and especially about what was glorious and what was not. Christine enjoyed winning an argument and especially when it was about war and death. Perhaps a reason for Christine’s love of plants was that they symbolized growth and life, whereas the cold steel blades and crafted firearms in her father’s home showed only the power to kill.
All through her life, Christine have thought different things than love and family as her own parents are a bad example of how married life is. In a way Christine fears that she will end up like her mother, in the shadow of a cold man who could care less if he was married to a statue. But still she always tried to see things from the bright side and she felt that she had to do a lot of good to counter all the bad that came from her father. So where he collect money from people and scold them for poor work, she gives them money to eat and offers them kind words to encourage them. And now being sent to a whole new Place, the Caribbean is just a new opportunity. Something that should give a lot of new chances to help people and she heard that there is much wild nature in the Caribbean islands.Weapon Skills:
