Description: Hers is a most startling, extrinsic beauty to behold; sleek lines and dusky skin, silken in its youth, are the canvas of which features so delicately refined are formed. Expressive brows give way to the slant of almondine eyes hued a shade reminiscent of molten gold in which it is so very easy to lose oneself in; at least, until long, sooted lashes lower demurely. The gentle round of cheeks curves down toward the natural pout of lush, bow-shaped lips, while rich golden brown curls spill free in their riotous cascade. Possessed of an endearing smile invoked at nearly all of life's simplest of pleasures, one would be hard-pressed to catch her in anything but good spirits. In regards to her shape, she is naught but a spritely thing of lithe muscle softened by feminine curves, while an intricate array of vibrantly hued ink painted upon her skin is an ever-changing artwork when bared.
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.
It was in one of those few times some years later that she disappeared in the night from the Dune Kingdom of Suj'Abbat, along with an entire crew and ship. On the distant western shores of the Oathlands, at the end of a voyage wrought with peril, did she and her crew finally turn up in an explosive debut one would be hard-pressed to forget; it was with quick wit and great sacrifice of her own vessel that won her a battle against two Abandoned ships in the Eventide Vast.
Half-starved and badly wounded, Katarina and her few surviving shipmates would've surely perished were it not for Princess Alis Valardin and her war party saving them that day. They were taken back to the city of Sanctum where she was then taken not as a prisoner, but a protected royal ward of House Valardin.
Although she remains close-lipped of her ordeal and Eurusi origins with anyone but with her liege, Katarina proved herself to be devoutly loyal to the family who protected her as their own in the two years since her arrival. For her loyalty and hard work in the war against the Silence, she was given the name of the Dragon and adopted officially into the family.
