Description: Lovely beyond compare, Jaenelle embodies all that is perfect about a woman. Her large blue eyes sparkle with a joy of life, even when staring off into space. Her creamy skin, unblemished by the trials of life, looks as smooth as satin. Soft highlights of pure gold set her flaxen hair ablaze as it curls ever so slightly about her cherubic face. More often than not, her expression is filled with cheer and mild, delighted mischief.

Personality: As an adult who has found her place, no longer desiring to live only certain parts of herself for certain people, Jaenelle has come into her own. The mask she hid behind to appear unassuming enough so others never quite caught on that there was more beneath the surface shattered into pieces. Her simple minded giggles have become laughter that invokes her entire being, and quick grins that form from inside jokes. The vacantly held stares have morphed into deeply thoughtful, meaningful glances. Composed and calulated, generous to a fault and fiercly loyal, she has found the perfect balance between remaining sociable and sweet while being someone others should never underestimate again.

Background: Jaenelle led something of a charmed life. As the granddaughter of Prince Donrai Thrax, she was distant enough from the Prince of Maelstrom to be spared the more dangerous side of Thraxian politics but still close enough that she was given an excellent betrothal match to a handsome, well born noble. A Velenosan prince, even! They met and courted in Arx, sparing Jaenelle again from the more dangerous Lyceum and married in a beautiful ceremony that celebrated the renewed ties between two of the greatest houses in the world. Of course, not everything could be good luck. They weren't married long when a tragic accident took her new husband from her. While she's very sad, the Duchess Esera Velenosa assured Jaenelle that she's still a welcome and important part of her new family. So that helps. Yay!

  • Name Summary
    Aethan Very dextrous.
    Agatha My cousin just bid 75,000 for an hour of someone's time. She is definitely doing something right, and she had good taste.
    Alaric When you say someone is demanding, it's usually not in a complimentary context, but I think Jaenelle simply feels that things ought to be efficient and amusing as soon as possible, and what's wrong with that?
    Alarissa Fornerly Thrax, then Velenosa and then still Velenosan. I like when I get a chance to meet with her. A delicious ray of light. Would that we still had her, wha fortune we would have.
    Alessia The archduchess-regent has done a wonderful job ruling the Lyceum and I'm grateful for all the support she has offered my cousins.
    Alexio A knowledgeable woman and a master of numbers. I look forward to both learning and collaborating with her.
    Alexis The Princess is truly an astounding hostess, offering her guests unique experiences and managing to make even this lowly commoner feel at home in her company.
    Berto A jewel of a woman, infinitely kind to a poor trader who crossed her path. As she says, a friend is a wonderful thing to have.
    Bliss A woman who clearly understands the whimsy of the Nox, and is excessively polite. I will need to spend more time with her.
    Brigida A daughter of the Mourning Isles who is as Lycene as any native child of Lenosia.
    Calista I've only known the Princess as a fellow Lycene though she is Thraxian by birth. She's wonderful company and has just the right amount of spark to her to be properly mischievous.
    Caspian After running into her before, we finally gotten to speak to each other! A Thraxian in The Lyceum? I'm curious, I want to ask her more about her new home some time.
    Celeste The Archduchess Regent is everything she's made out to be, and a wonderful successor to lead Velenosa. I found my time with her far easier than I had worried it would be, and would be grateful for her company in less trying times.
    Cristoph A very gracious princess from Velenosa. We met to discuss trade and she was quite kind to the young woman we encountered in the inn. It spoke well of her. She also was very knowledgeable on the trade we discussed. I look forward to forging further ties with her and her family.
    Domonico Elegant and gracious, she definately deserves to hold the title and responsibility of the rank that she holds.
    Edain It feels strange to finally meet the Princess after we have been ships passing in the knight for the nearly 6 years I have been in the city of Arx now. She's been a constant fixture, but our paths have almost never crossed. She is every bit as charming as her brother and sister have claimed she is. I feel like she might well be to diplomacy and courtly etiquette what her sister is to the sword and knightly virtue. We are blessed to have her in Arx.
    Eithne The minister of all that is good for merchants, crafters, and business owners in Arx. I met the Princess at her first meeting and she seems to really have her shit together. Thank gods.
    Eleanor The King introduced me to her. She was kind enough to let me join their dinner, and extremely gracious.
    Eleyna When I first arrived to Arx, I was constantly being mistaken for Jaenelle since blondes are a rare sight in the Velenosa family. As time has passed, I realize that we share a lot more than our hair shade in common. She may not have been born a fox, but you certainly wouldn't be able to tell now.
    Fecundo Very generous of her Highness to take the time to have a good discussion around diplomacy. She was very welcoming and open to ideas and banter.
    Galen My dear sister! As lovely and bright as I remember, I've missed her! I believe deep down that she and I might have hearts more similar than my other siblings.
    Gareth Princess Jaenelle as bubbly as she always has been but somehow finds a way to seem tolerable. It is fortunate she wasn't smashed into a flaming barrel and burnt to death.
    Gilroy One does not have to be born in the Lyceum to be a true Lycene. Sometimes one realizes at some point in their life that they've been Lycene all along. A gracious host and a graceful archduchess (regent).
    Giulio An interesting woman, well-adorned and with certain great talents. A good bride for Mydas and hopefully a surcease for past pains. With her connections to the Nox'alfar, an ally most worth pursuing.
    Gretchen As poised and picturesque as I expected from such an esteemed woman. Genuine and gracious.
    Harper She's gonna be a great Archduchess and she'd have my loyalty just because of Talen and Mydas. But, she's earned it all on her own. And even more than that, she's already an even better friend! I've got her back when she needs it.
    Ian There's something -- else about her. I can't put my finger on it. I wish I had a clearer idea of what she wants from me.
    Ignacio Princess Jaenelle seems to be an intriguing women speaking of interesting exploits. I think I would like to get to know her better.
    Imi She is a woman of more talents than most people realize. And a sense of style befitting the House she leads.
    Jeffeth The Princess of Ministry of Somethingsomething, she was escorting the King. She seemed a very nice sort, I wouldn't mind running into her again.
    Jordan The twin sister to Dame Leona; she's delicate and tiny to Leona's tall athleticism, but her strengths lie in another arena altogether. I do not underestimate this Princess of Velenosa one bit; some people know how to use their beauty as the foot in the door for great things, and she seems the type to know how to do so just as well.
    Josephine A princess of Velenosa, formerly of Thrax I am told, and a lovely woman. Always popping in and trusting me to tend to her metallurgical needs. A delight to be around.
    Josephine The Archduches-Regent is a grand and lovely Princess and ever when our paths cross in business or pleasure, it is a delight. You forget that she wasn't Lycene born.
    Juliana What can you say? She is beautiful, smart and fearless.. she is family.
    Kia She works hard to throw a wonderful event. She also is rather humble for a Velenosa princess. That's very refreshing.
    Lark My would-be sister-in-law has always been a woman who could hold her own, but it is a pleasure to watch her shine in her new position even as she is reminded of her old roots.
    Leola Why do I keep end up working for regents? Do I do something to my liege-lords? That said, while she shows the silk of the glove freely, I have a dreadful feeling there's a dark steel somewhere below there. Of course, that could just be common sense; she is Grand Duchess Velenosa now.
    Lorenzo A very busy woman, though I enjoy her stories. And even if I doubt I'll take her advice, I'm sure she has my best interests at heart when she gives it.
    Lou A voice who shows that she cares for her people, and asks the questions needed to see to their needs.
    Luca "Don't worry, I can remind you of who you are. You're a lovely piece of artwork with eyes like the summer sky when there's not a cloud in sight and it stretches on for so long and forever that you question your importance in such a big, big world. You laugh like a warrior fights, freely and bravely, and honestly. Your enthusiasm, that of a child's when given a gift they did not expect. You're sweeter than any treat on that tray. Also, you're upside down, which is a new thing, but I think I'm enjoying this new perspective."
    Magpie Magpie has been trying to meet Jaenelle for far too long, but they always kept missing each other. She's sharp of mind, competant, and doesn't over-flower her words with poetry as so many of the Lycene try to. There was a personal matter that left the man frustrated, but personal matters aside, she was every bit the role of Archduchess she's stepped up to hold.
    Melody I've only briefly bumped into Jaenelle a couple of times, but what sticks out most is the time that she offered me a spot at a fun and intimiate gathering without having ever met me before. So, in other words: She's a very nice and wonderful person.
    Merek The Princess-Minister of Velenosa. Merek thinks much of her for being a member of the family which he serves. She's done nothing upon meeting to make him think of her as any different than the other members of the family he respects.
    Miranda The Archduchess... I have no words. I mean.. I met her! Wow!
    Mirari Business-minded princess-minister. Always good for help with a project.
    Mirari Always so sweet and concerned with people, especially her husband. I hope she has an adorable baby so I can hold it once and then never ever think about babies again.
    Mirari Elegant, savvy, and with a good head and heart. You could ask for little more in a woman tasked with leading the Velenosan family.
    Mydas An unexpected meeting led to even more surprises. With an effortlessness that cannot be taught, she showed rather than told how she could combine beauty without match, intellect whose depths and nimbleness could prove a match to any emerite scholar, and a confident control, that I find entirely too amusing to try and disturb. The rest? I'll keep for myself.
    Niklas Busy princess just got busier.
    Norwood She is... generous? Or perhaps creative. For very sure she is imaginative. Asparagus cake?!
    Orathy Years back, aye, worked fer the woman. She be good to me 'n see that I be properly armed fer the service to 'er as body guard. It ain't last too long though, reckon, it were still good memories 'n the woman has my axe any time she be needin it.
    Petal She is very nice and helped me out in a crisis. I was so afraid. I am glad she stepped forward to help me.
    Pharamond Lovely and sweet; a hope to get to learn more about the Velenosan Princess!
    Reese She is Luca's cousin, but not really by blood. She seems quite sultry and playful.
    Ryhalt Seems quite good at bringing those in the city with trade interests together and getting them to mingle. That's good. Money in the same place makes more money.
    Sabella A very capable woman who balances a huge load of work for the city along with keeping up personal friendships and starting a family! She is an inspiration and I am glad my cousin has her to rely on!
    Saoirse Jaenelle took Saoirse out for drinks on the town and introduced her to the king! Not a bad lady to know, eh?
    Sorrel Galen's beautiful little sister might truly be the prettiest one in his family, and she does have fine taste in clothes. She is charming, well-connected, and personable, and I hope to get to know her better in the future.
    Stefano A former Thrax princess, married in and then widowed into House Velenosa. A new Voice, I'm sure she'll make her second house proud!
    Sudara Sweet-natured, charming, and a true delight. How did Thrax ever manage this? And how fortunate are Velenosa to acquire her?
    Talen Clever. Innocent. Pretty. A Thrax-turned-Velenosa. She's come home and she doesn't wish to leave and Talen will never let her, unless she changes her mind. Just as the prince-who-wasn't sat on the edge of the Velenosa, so too did the widow-who-shouldn't-have-been.
    Theron Princess of Velenosa, born as Thrax. Beautiful, Galen's sister, and a good businesswoman to get in touch with. She owes me a kiss! But I'll collect it at some later time. I enjoyed my conversations with her, so far.
    Valarian Yet another Princess to leave me broken hearted. I have the worst luck with that. I should have stolen the ship and her with it. If only I knew how to sail...in any case, she's quite the charmer and conversationalist and didn't give me a hard time for being...overly curious...about a damn fine boat. I didn't end up overboard, this does her credit!
    Venturo A Princess Who Likes Stories. If she believes in luck and good booze, she may well belong in a story book. Or a very tall tower. Wait, did she say a ship? The last time I was on a boat it.... <the thought trails off here>
    Victus A flower in the dawn. She got the luckiest in the genepool.
    Videl Her grace, the regent is an intelligent well-spoken woman, as is to be expected I suppose. She does genuinely interested in the opinions and welfare of those beneath her, a commendable trait.
    Willow Beware of purple apples! Splendidly well dressed and intriguing.
    Zara She represents Velenosa well: cunning, but not careless, and mindful of the shared virtues of all the compact. I have _so_ many questions about the geese, though!!
