While she’ll probably develop some aggressive and impatient attributes like most fire-wielders, I think I want her to mainly be a flame that burns in place—she just enjoys being where she belongs, ruling over the volcanic realm of Pyrada in peace. I’ve said before that she stays out of affairs that don’t concern her, but she can hold one heck of a grudge and hates being indebted to people, so it seems like her view is based on paying things back, looking at most things like a transaction, reacting to things rather than instigating them…
And I kind of like that, but I don’t know what to do with it right now. You know what I currently have in the document for the next chapter? She’s leaning against one side of her throne half-asleep tossing a fireball in the air like it’s a hacky sack or something. That’s it. I don’t see her as being motivated to do much else, and I doubt anyone would be up to messing with her while the entire world is rebuilding in the wake of the Ruinous.
I mean, I could have someone try to loot the still-damaged Pyrada, but the Queen would just set them on fire and that’d be the end of that. She has been tasked with sealing away the Eastern Ruin, but I’m not sure how interesting it would be to see her dragging an unconscious monster up a volcano, plus the Eastern Ruin is the only Ruinous I haven’t even started coming up with an appearance for. Maybe I could write something about her wanting to stay independent, but her advisors point out she kind of needs to start trade agreements with the other queendoms, and then she groans and tries to get out of it, and…relatable as that is, I’m not sure it’s entertaining, fitting, or smart to do (since it might be limiting her character a bit more than I really should).
So it looks like I tried playing with Fire…and got burned! Hahahahahahahaha!
(Seriously though does anyone have any suggestions?)
