* Plot Information for Dhemlan Terreille

It is natural for a Long-Lived Territory to remember the past, but it is equally essential to for them step into the future, and Dhemlan’s future is Democracy. With a proud tradition of representative government already in place, post-war Dhemlan has chosen to let the people decide their path forward. With drought and starvation looming, no one knows who the next ruler will be, but they do know this: the fate of Dhemlan Terreille will be decided not on the battlefield, but at the polls.

    Appearance

    Play By: Becky G (Rebecca Marie Gomez)
    Distinguishing Features:

    Personality

    Personality:
    In public Guadalupe (“Lupe” to her friends), is one of two things. Either incredibly friendly, social, and fun, or a vicious bitch. To her friends and those she is trying to court she is talkative, and perceptive, interested in everything the person has to say and an excellent communicator. To her enemies or rivals (they are seen in the same light) she is a relentless foe who tries to tear her enemy apart through a campaign of lies, hazing, gossip, and passive-aggressive commentary. At the Academy she was a Straight-A student. As a Queen, she is even more of a workaholic. Her hard-working attitude is seen by everyone, be they in her Court or in her Province, as a relentless agent. She does not shy away from extra responsibility, and is known to sleep little and work late to organize, plan, and execute on any number of things to help her people.

    In private Guadalupe is consumed by a need for praise and attention. Having suffered a childhood devoid of parental affection, she has instead shifted that focus to her people. She now works exceptionally hard to make her Court and her citizens love her, to accept her, and to push her for more. To those unfamiliar with her she is dizzying in her energy and her need to move from one project to the next. She is almost neurotically organized, planning out her day by the minute and is a terror when someone makes her deviate from that task.

    Since her Virgin Night she has become almost obsessed with sex. Being under an incredible amount of stress, much of it self-inflicted, she finds that the physical release of the act does a great deal to ease her body and clear her mind.

    Lupe is project-oriented and very mindful of her position. She knows she’s something special, as the only pure-blooded Dhemlanese Queen born in a generation. While her jewels are not dark, they are still nonetheless incredibly useful, and she plans to make herself a Queen worth legend after her days at the Academy. While she lives in Isadora’s shadow she doesn’t lack ambition, and in fact since she has taken her position she strives to make Isadora's legacy nothing but a memory, supplanting it with her own. In the back of her mind she feels a need to make up for the lack of aristo status her Step-father robbed her of.

    But there were some lessons from Isadora that stuck with her: Ruthlessness, merciless bargaining, and manipulating those around you with every weapon at your disposal. Isadora is dead, but her heir has been fully shaped by her lessons.

    Likes:
    • Ruling: Lupe had always been inwardly afraid that she wouldn't be a good Queen. Since she took the reins of Atholi she has thrived, however. She eats, sleeps, and dreams of being a Queen worthy of respect and pride. She treats her people well, she tends to the land with great vigor, and she eats up all of the attention and deference. It is her life goal actualized and she realizes how lucky she is to have gotten the seat thanks to Isadora's mistakes.

    • Her Brothers: While Cornado spurned her, Estevez and Santiago had always shown her love and respect. She deeply loves both of them, fawning especially over Estevez who is closer to her in age. She regrets Estevez having to feel so much guilt over what’s happened, but she’s assuaged that guilt by showing him what success she’s enjoyed since coming into Isadora’s care. Now that she rules Atholi, she has brought them both into her Court and enjoys them being so near to her.

    • The Academy: Lupe always will have a soft spot for the Academy and her friends from it. It was the competitive environment of the Academy that Lupe thrived and grew from. She had outlets for her constant need for success and praise. She had challenges to force her to become better and stronger, and she has a social network to manipulate and to enjoy thanks to it. She will always look out for the Academy and give it whatever aid she can. She is the ultimate Alumni.
    Dislikes:
    • Half Breeds and Eyriens: Bella was the seed for her hate in the Academy, but it has bloomed since then. Now Lupe's disgust for the Eyriens is clearly present as well as those who have mixed Dhemlanese and Short-Lived blood. This puts her at odds with the Priest Prince of Sarque and her belief that he has no business being in charge of a farm, let alone a Province.

    • Her Step-Father: Because Cornado denied paternity at the Birthright Ceremony, he denied her aristo status forever. He never showed her any affection, never told her anything of value except that she had killed her mother and that she lived only because of the fact she was born from a woman she loved. She feels no guilt over manipulating him, and plans to one day destroy him when she comes into her own Court and power.

    • Alexi and his Bandits: Isadora had made a real fucking mess with what she did to Alexi and the other males she'd collared and tormented. While Lupe has sympathy for Alexi (he was around her and protected her during the last decade), she absolutely cannot stand his attacks against her Province and her people. She needs to bring Alexi to heel and soon, and if he will not obey then she will have to destroy him.
    Fears:
    • Not Being Better Than Everyone Else: Lupe can’t just excel, she has to be better than everyone. She has to be worth more, has to stand out more, has to have more. It’s not enough in this world to be good, she has to be the best. If she fails at something she suffers a minor panic attack, if she suffers a setback she can go into a terrible rage or a crying fit. Her need for excellence is all-consuming, and she can’t accept anything less.

    • The Secrets Getting Out: Not everything about Isadora Diamante's vile rule died with her. Some of it was merely inherited by her protege. When Lupe took over Atholi she made a large sound of changing everything, but some of the books of slave trading she kept, and she kept the Rings and the trade connections Isadora made. She's still thinking of how to make it work but there was undeniable power to the prosperous state of Atholi in the past. It's just a matter of being smarter than her predecessor and not getting caught.

    • Being Known as a Bad Queen: Lupe's entire life is being Queen of Atholi. She realizes she is young yet and has many, many, many years to build her legacy. She wants to be at the helm of the future direction of the Territory and maybe in a thousand years even be the Territory Queen. She tries hard to keep her best PR face on at all times, and takes any sort of criticism seriously.
    Craft Strengths:
    • Queen’s Gift: Being a student of Isadora was not without great benefit as Lupe continued on her legacy of this powerful boon in a starving land. Atholi thrives while Dhemlan starves thanks mostly to Lupe alone.

    • Seduction Craft: Since completing her Virgin Night, Lupe has gained an almost insatiable lust for sex. It’s not just sex, but the conquering of another person through Craft and guile. She had seduced a number of her fellow students (and teachers) to her bed, as well as those around the Academy. She has only expanded that upon gaining her Seat and has taken most of her Court to bed at least once.
    Craft Weaknesses:
    • Queen’s Touch: While Lupe doesn’t have quite the same issue as her mentor about attracting males, she does lack a certain empathy and a base of instruction. Isadora cared little about tending to the needs of her males through Craft and thus did not instill it into Lupe. As such the skill is not just one she had never bothered to refine, but one she could not summon.

    • Combat Craft: This is what Escorts and Males are for. Why bother?

    *Jewels assigned, not rolled.

    History:

    Hate breeds hate.

    Lucia was Cornado’s brightest star. A beautiful and gifted Black Widow. The two of them had survived the Purge, though Lucia had sacrificed her Offering to do so. Their two sons born after the Purge, were strong and healthy. But all the love in the world cannot stop a Warlord Prince in a rut.

    Guadalupe was conceived during a particularly destructive instance of the Warlord Prince’s sexual release. To this day she does not know the identity of her father, only that his rape of her mother caused her creation. While Lucia was able to successfully bring the child to term, a healthy Queen, it was too great a toll on an already wounded woman, and Lucia died days afterward. Cornado never really forgave Guadalupe for the death of his beloved wife, but as Lucia’s daughter, he could never bear to be rid of her either. Even when he had considered it, his sons vehemently opposed the idea of it. So he took her in and gave her his name, but he never accepted her as his child.

    Her youth was hard. While she should have been celebrated, given that she was the first pure-blooded Queen born to Dhemlan in a generation, her father could never look at her without seeing the man who had murdered his wife. Due to the origins of her birth, she did not inherit the aristo status that her father and brothers enjoyed, so Guadalupe’s earliest memories are that of scorn. While her brothers were protective of her, they would not stand in the way of their father, and they stood by as they watched him drive their little sister with a relentless need to excel. His lack of affection and attention, his constant anger at her, instilled in her the need to just be better. Better than her peers. Better than her brothers. Smarter. Prettier.

    But it’s an impossible task to “make up” being your mother’s killer, and as Guadalupe failed to capture her father’s love, she instead came to hate him in turn. And as she hated him, she hated those like him -- aristos who snubbed her status, when they should have been grateful of her mere existence. Even after her Birthright Ceremony, an event that gifted her the Rose (the same jewel as the darkest Queen in the Territory!), she could not win his love, not even the slightest nod of acceptance. She had wailed, she had despaired, and when she woke the next day, she plotted her way to escape.

    A very bright child, she wrote to Isadora Diamante, lamenting her situation to the Queen of Atholi. After weeks of corresponding with one another, Isadora gave Guadalupe specific instructions on what to say to her brother Estevez, what to do, and when to do it. While at the time Lupe was ignorant to what Isadora was up to, an elaborate scheme was begun to ensnare her brother in Isadora’s clutches. Estevez, who doted on his little sister, fell right for it. He had gone to a certain dollmaker’s shop in Atholi that Lupe had raved about for weeks before Winsol, and there he fell into the carefully laid trap that Isadora had set. Some Widows Webs, some Seduction Craft, a carefully planted patsy, and one drunken haze later and Estevez found himself in a dire situation that so many other males in Isadora’s Court had found themselves. But rather than bind him as she had other males to her service, she contacted Cornado and called him to Court.

    Estevez’s “crimes” were deep, for he had broken a witch in Isadora’s service. But Isadora offered Cornado a way to save his youngest son from a terrible end; He had to only hand over Guadalupe to her guardianship and remain silent about the terms. Cornado, eager to trade the child he hated for the child he loved, agreed. Estevez was allowed to leave, pardoned, but carried with him the guilt that his sister had sacrificed herself for his freedom (which was, cunningly, a way for Isadora to snare Estevez later).

    Guadalupe came to live with Isadora, finding the situation to be as different as night to day. While Isadora was doting and loving, treating Lupe like her own daughter, she was also intense with her direction. But Lupe was quick to rise to the challenge, and Isadora could not find a more eager student. With Isadora’s support she was accepted into the Dhemlan Academy as part of the current class (and how could she not? She was the only pure-blooded Queen in a generation!).

    At the Academy Lupe had become a star pupil. Bright, inquisitive, social, and terribly manipulative. She held a deep hatred for Ysabel and Gabriella, whom she sees as rival Queens, and all of their “Cronies”. A social shark, Lupe was often the center of all gossip, mischief, and social events at the Academy. She was the eldest of all the Queens in her class, having received both her Virgin Night and her Offering. But despite that she always felt a deep, clawing insecurity -- a cancerous need for more, to be better than anyone else, and to validate Isadora’s faith and “love”.

    Things changed dramatically shortly before she graduated from the Academy. A number of Isadora's males, including Casim, stepped forward to testify about her having used Rings of Obedience to keep them in her service. They iterated a list of shady transactions and brought forth proof. With damning evidence, Isadora pled guilty and begged for clemency. Lupe submitted herself for inspection to Black Widows and it was made clear she was innocent of any wrong-doing and in light of that, she was given control of the Province (an unprecedented thing for someone so young). Isadora was brought to the capital and Lupe saw her executed for her crimes. Returning home she offered for any male in Atholi who'd been wronged by her to come serve her instead. Some did, but others like Alexi, turned to banditry and violence.

    For the last few years Lupe has ruled Atholi with a velvet glove around an iron fist. She has kept her people fed and well cared for, but she's never been able to stop Alexi or his rogues and they have recently closed off the Province to outside trade - hurting the Province and the Territory as a whole.

    Character in Play:
    “Risto.” Lupe purred into her male’s ear as they sat in the dining hall. As usual she was curled next to him, taking comfort in his warmth. While it was known that the Ebon Gray Warlord Prince was hers, many outside of her inner-circle did not understand the complexities of their relationship. While their other friends ate their meal and watched with interest, others in the hall tried to ignore them -- for fear of catching her ire.

    “Love.” Seduction Craft wrapped Summer Sky tendrils around his muscled body, deep into his lean form and across the span of his psyche. “You see that dainty Priestess there, Yolanda?” She lifted her fingers to turn his chin to look in the direction of the indicated girl, eating nearby Bella and her cronies. Lupe’s lips slid along his earlobe, giving him just a touch of teeth. “Eating with that Eyrien slut. She’s too pretty to be doing that, Risto. She’s one of us, not one of Bella’s mongrels.”

    Her fingertips and manicured nails grazed along his chest, uncaring who saw what. He could take her on this table and it would thrill her, save that it’d mar her reputation and ruin her dress. Maybe one day she’d urge him to -- the last week before the end of their tenure at the Academy, maybe. “Make her ours, love.” She whispered against his ear and nibbled against the skin. “Show her what a real male can do for her. And that she’d be so, much, happier with us.”

    With me, she thought. With a real Queen.

    Petitions (if any): 
    Why did this character became inactive?
    I had a falling out with the people who ran the Territory and didn't want to play her anymore.

    What will you do to prevent this character from becoming inactive again?
    Write with her.

    What are your plans for this character?
    I am pretty excited about the new direction of Dhemlan and plan to have Lupe do some big plot things and play the part of the Bad Queen of Dhemlan.

    good for meeeeeeeee
    Home is behind, the world ahead, And there are many paths to tread
    Through shadows to the edge of night, Until the stars are all alight.
    Then world behind and home ahead, We'll wander back to home and bed.
