Description

Katarina's golden eyes gleam with amusement, and her face is rarely without a coy and knowing smile. Her typical expression is as though the diminutive, dusky-skinned woman has overheard a joke told by the universe, and only she understood the punchline. She's short of stature, but has a wide-hipped hourglass figure. The sable ringlets of her hair are usually left natural, a cloud of curls that adds a few illusory inches to her height. Some outfits reveal a large tattoo on Katarina's back: an intricate, mandala-like pointillist design that takes up her entire back, from her shoulders all the way down to her dimples of Venus. Her voice is a light, airy trill, and though some words show off a Sanctum accent in their saying, for the most part her accent is thickly stuck in the Dune Kingdoms. Typically, she dresses in fine gowns that blend Eurusi and Oathlands fashion, and keeps most of her face covered with Suj'abbati veils that start just under her eyes and drape loosely all the way down to her collarbone.

Personality

One would think a foreign princess so far removed from her home would be inclined to sulk and pout about her current lot in life, but that most certainly isn't so with Katarina. Quick to smile and slow to anger, she is one to disregard her own travesties and misfortunes to embrace positivity in all its forms around her; be it the delight of yet another small discovery in her time immersed in a culture so very different from her own or cresting the tumultous waves of the high seas on another explorative expedition, there is very little that can incite her ire. That being said, if there is one thing she cannot stand, it is one who shamelessly inflicts wrong-doing and injustice upon those undeserving.

Background

The daughter of the last true and current Suj'Abbati ruler, Katarina was born amidst the turmoil and upheaval of an entire kingdom still reeling from the aftermath of a failed attempt to usurp the throne that left many of her kin slain, and many more taken by the Magisters of the Mirror in the months to come for retribution of their crimes against the throne. Hers was thusly a childhood spent confined behind gilded walls of the palace, where her days were seldom spent beyond the watchful eye of the few entrusted with her care.
