Character Sheet for Esther
Esther is the princess and sole heir to the throne of the fennec kingdom called Shajarat.
Or at least, she was...
She is the one of the main characters in my comic Stoneheart~
Esther has a very compassionate and sympathetic heart. She has lived a very good life and thanks to her having spent a lot of her childhood playing with commoners she has grown a unique ability to relate to her fathers' people. Even if her wishes to relieve all of their poorest citizens of their pain are childish and unrealistic, she has sworn to make it her goal once she takes the throne.
Unfortunately, her parents has tried their best to shield her from the extent of some people's cruelty, so she is quite naive in her thinking regarding others. As she believes that every single one has some measure of goodness in them. Crimes such as murders, rape and torture are therefore unthinkable to her.
She is willing to do anything for her people, and always has their opinions of her in her mind. For both good and bad.
But yes, she is also quite vain and puts a lot of value and effort in her looks. Split hair and broken nails are the worst! For now...
Esther's father was the king of Shajarat, who took the throne after his father passed away when he was in his early twenties. Her mother however, was a commoner. She was the daughter of a well off butcher, who just happened to bump into the young King when she was helping her father with a delivery to the palace kitchen.
The young king immediately fell for the common girl, and after a couple of months of courting from the king's side, she just couldn't help but to be charmed by his sweet, yet adorably awkward attempts at impressing her.
And despite the stirr the king caused with his unconventional choice of mate, they were married and thus the kingdom was blessed with both a king and queen.
However, a problem soon arise; the queen just didn't seem to be getting pregnant. And not from a lack of trying!
The years passed, and never once did her belly seem to grow. They began to turn to medicines and remedies, and at some point even consulting with a sorceress. But no luck.
As their bodies grew older, the feeling of hopelessness began to fill them, and they were about to look elsewhere for a possible successor to the throne. Even if that meant that the line of the First King would be broken, but they didn't appear to have any other choice.
But suddenly one day, a miracle happened: the Queen was finally pregnant!
When the news reached all the corners of the kingdom, it was said that joy filled the heart of every fennec, and as their daughter was born a great feast was thrown that supposedly lasted three days and nights.
She was named Esther, and from the moment she was born she became the apple of Shajarat's eye. Her birth having been considered a miracle and a gift from the ancient gods, her birthday is a huge event every year.
She had a unique childhood as she was growing up. As her mother was of low birth herself, she allowed her daughter to not only accompany her on errands down to the capital, but also encouraged her to interact and play with the commoners. Especially since there were no others of her age in the palace.
She grew especially close friends with two farmer boys, Aryn and Nass. A pair of cousins who lived with Aryn's family, who would often accompany Aryn's mother when she went to the capital to sell the family's produce.
The Queen was an old acquaintance of the grandmother, so she was considered a regular customer. Which allowed Esther and her friends plenty of times to play for many, many years.
At least until Aryn's father got injured in an accident on the farm, and Aryn and Nass were forced to step up and work more, and the demands and expectations on Esther from both her family and the rest of the court, grew more serious. She grew apart from her friends, as she was raised and prepared for the one day she no longer would be a princess, but a queen.
But. What kind of queen, no one would ever guess...
King Matheo of Shajarat - father
Queen Agnis of Shajarat - mother
The world of Stoneheart!
Which is technically a world created by both myself and my
, so he gets a share of the credit <3
She is very short and petite, even for a fennec.
However, despite her young age she looks quite mature, as already her hips and bosoms can be considered quite... full.
Her fur is soft and silky, and has a pale, golden blonde tone to it. With lighter/white parts on her paws, muzzle and belly, and golden brown ears and tailtip. Her eyes are very dark blue, and very large and round.
She loves to wear blue dresses and togas, especially if they have a complimentary trim in a nice, not too bright color.
Alas, she wears what her master tells her to wear and simply has to accept it.
