I am a Noble
Name:: Luciana Gracia Bustillo del Carmello
Kingdom:: Duquesa del Rio de Oro (Duchess of the River of Gold) in Camandrel
Personality:: Growing up rather spurned by most of society for her background, Luciana developed a rather cynical and thorny personality. Fiercely independent, outwardly self-confident, and a firm believer in free speech, Luciana always made quite a bit of trouble for herself. Most of Camandrel's nobility tends to shy away from her, and she doesn't exactly fight it. Rumors are frequently spread about her, but the young Duquesa uses her allies (not friends, allies) to find out who started it, and Luciana can give as good as she gets and then some. This behavior has earned her the nickname Lucia Culebra, or Lucia the Snake. Luciana likes the infamy her wild mannerisms get her, so she has no plan of ever acting like a normal society lady. In fact, she overdoes it often, alienating people with excessively venomous behavior in order to uphold her reputation- "Lucia Culebra can't have friends! She's far too nasty!" But behind all the bite and fire, Luciana is just awkward and shy, and the only way she knows how to deal with that is by keeping everyone away. Besides, nobody can know that the snake has a deep and voracious love for fairy tales.
Bio:: Luciana was raised the only child in a rather uncommon household: her mother, Julia Bustillo, was a maid for the del Carmello family when she met the young duke, Marco. Needless to say, Julia and Marco met and fell in love, but they were forbidden to marry for a long time because of Julia's low status and mixed race. Eventually, after Marco's father died, his mother granted them permission to marry, and a couple of years later, Luciana was born. As a child, the young Duquesa was warily accepted, because the other children couldn't tell that her blue-gray eyes were a mark of lower class. As soon as they learned this, however, they sharply cut off their friendships with her and she was ostracized from her peers. She became alone and rather embittered, and struck back with all the vengeance a ten-year-old girl could muster. Which, considering Luciana, was quite a bit. People started calling her Culebra when she was thirteen and made a baron's daughter cry at her own birthday party. From then on, it was a constant war between her and the other women, and Luciana won many battles with her quick wit. However, her parents decided to send her to the treaty meeting in order to get her away from the hole she'd dug herself. Using their royal connections, they secured her one of the two spots for Camandren girls. Luciana was not
Pets:: When she was fourteen, Luciana got a dog for her birthday- a mutt puppy, from a count's daughter with the intent of rubbing Luciana's heritage in her face. It had the opposite effect though, and she named the puppy Teo and he's been her closest friend ever since.
Other:: Being of mixed heritage, Luciana has the usual black hair and tan skin, but her eyes are gray-blue.
Also, she'll snap at you if you call her Luci, but I'm sure if she liked you enough she'd allow it (HINT HINT).
