Princess Vega Thrax
If you need something from somebody, always give that person a way to hand it to you.
Description: Far taller than the average woman, Vega Thrax is a woman of striking appearance. With long, coppery colored hair that can most often be find perfectly coiffed up and away from her face and neck, she has delicate features set into a strong, rectangular face. Her eyes have a storm-darkened sapphire hue with just a few touches of grey to help soften them. Her form is obviously feminine, lean but not scrawny, with an inner core of steel that keeps her spine straight and her chin up.
Personality: Precocious, with a warm and cultured voice that manages to carry without having to lift in volume. Vega has always known how to get what she wanted while making it seem it was someone else's decision all along. She relishes her duties and approaches each one with a calm deliberation and confidence that she will get her way.
Background: A member of one of the lesser lines, Vega was shown from a young age that if she wanted something better than to be just another princess, she would have to find a way to make it happen. So she went into the study of people. She practiced through trial and error in her younger years, found older girls who knew more and begged, blackmailed, or pulled rank on them to get them to teach her what they knew. As she grew, matured, and learned, she realized the mistakes she was making and starting correcting them. With a sister and two younger brothers, she had plenty of subjects to test her wiles out on.
As she got older and her skills refined further, she started putting them to use for her family. Helping negotiate deals, brokering treaties, keeping hard-won peaces... her delicate hand was there, her patient smile suggesting she has all the time in the world. When she reached the age of marriage, Vega began looking for a suitable match. The right House, the right man, the right contract. She went through three courtships early on, none of them ending in marriage. By the time she turned twenty-five, her parents stopped pushing young men at her. But she didn't stop looking.
Vega Thrax found her match in Raimon Fidante, just months after her 30th birthday, long after her family had given up hope. While visiting Tor, she met Raimon, sized him up, then requested a courtship period. At the end of three months, a contract was drawn up, and the pair were quietly married in Tor. Newlywed to a man that seems her opposite in every way, Vega and her new husband head for Arx to join the family once more.
