CASSANDRA DUNORD |TWENTY-ONE | DUCHESS OF FEXLUND | REGESVARD|Full Name:
Cassandra DeWinter DuNord
Duchess of Fexlund
Occupation:Duchess and wife to Edmund DuNordAffiliations:
Cassandra is mildly tall at five foot six with a willowy appearance. Her arms and legs are long with a long torso with artist fingers and small feet. Her appearance is somewhat petite with tapered hips and narrow shoulders, but the pint sized woman has more spark then most know. It snaps in her eyes the color of chocolate and is obvious in her grins. Her facial expressions range from pure anger to joyful glee, and you can always tell what she’s thinking until she pulls up the walls. Her hair is a rather dark brown and reaches a little bit past her shoulders to almost mid back when it’s straight.
You can best see Cassandra in flowing gowns of bright jewel tones like red, blue, and green or even gold. Her skin has a darker complexion that allows her to wear whatever color she desires and not look sallow or worse. The woman enjoys wearing dresses but isn’t above going out and riding in riding pants under a dress on a horse.
Cassandra at the moment does not have any scars or tattoos.Personality:
Cassandra is feisty, to say the least. Opinionated and stubborn are only a few attributes to give this woman, but perhaps we should break it up and make it easier.
The woman is nearly bubbly, playful, and teasing to her friends and family. Nothing brings her down and often she is more excitable than you would expect. Horseback riding is perhaps her favorite way to completely let go. It is the closest she'll ever get to flying, which is often dreams off. She loves everything, no matter what (mother in laws not included.) She's a fun, crazy, challenging, I-dare-you-to-do-it sort of gal. Responsibility is extremely important, but a gorgeous summer day? You can expect some hookey to be played, but only if the work isn't pressing. Her duty is very important to her.
When her mood turns she is introverted and quiet, it's hard to break her out of the funk. She won't cry unless it's in private, and she's more likely to be apathetic and snap at you. But the apathy is veils deep emotion usually making a cover for her obligation and duty.
Two words: Run fast. The woman has a temper that could put a lot of men to shame. She'll put you in your place with loud, sharp words and has only a little bit of a filter. No matter what she is a duchess and has a diplomacy filter, but in private? All hell will break loose. Anger tends to take a very, very long time, as she bottles everything up, but when she explodes it's very dangerous. A word to the wise is to stay on her good side.
Cassandra had a lot of courtiers and suitors, but never truly explored this side of her until her engagement to Lord DuNord. Cassandra is very playful, and really has no 'off' switch. Curious, and now freshly married, all bets are off. Before her pregnancy there was actually a pool of gamblers trying to make money as to when she'd turn up with child. Her honeymoon was interrupted by the death of Mailor and the late King, so she's having to sneak in alone time with her new husband as much as she can. She's been known to pull him aside in the hallway and plant one on him, and is overly affectionate now that the ring is on her finger.History:
x - Born to Alannah and Duke Bumpastein in a neighboring country after her mother's political marriage to the outsider Duke.
x - Grew up as an only child, moving back to Tetel'ac shortly after she was born and the death of her father
x - Raised alongside the DeGrada children, friends with both Edmund and Mailor (now deceased)
x - Grew up and turned down suitor after suitor, unconsciously waiting for Edmund. When he never showed interest, she started courting Duke Caras and grew a deep affection for him and his child Iphi. Unknown to her Edmund had been trying to build up something for them before making a move.
x - Grandfather died at twenty, the same night Edmund confessed his love... in front of Duke Caras, tipping the balance completely out of whack. Cassandra and the Duke no longer saw each other socially, both upset and feeling betrayed for different reasons.
x - Edmund pursued Cassandra relentlessly for weeks, even going so far as to climb into her bedroom window at night to convince her to marry him. Eventually Cassandra agreed, and they were wed a month or so later.
x - Honeymoon was interrupted by the revolution of the country when the King was murdered by a supposedly "mad" Mailor, who was killed himself as well in the skirmish.
x - Returned to Fexlund immediately thereafter and kept a close eye on her new husband, keeping him busy and "busy". Is now trying to contain peace inside of her Dukedom and is teaching Edmund the ropes of Fexlund along with the horse breeding business the DeWinter family was infamous for.Family
