Empress is used to having men (and some women in certain cases) fall about themselves in an effort to impress her personally and can become frustrated when people show some form of resistance to her feminine wiles.Motivation ~Power:
Empress works for the Brimstone House in an effort to increase her family’s power base.Background:
Grace and brutality makes for a strange juxtaposition, but succinctly describes Evangeline Summerfield’s upbringing. Her family has long used the occult to maintain their position and primacy over their holdings; not that her relatives had much power, but even the slightest of magical talent, when used ruthlessly enough, can go a long way to maintaining an iron hold over the superstitious inhabitants of a rural area, particularly when backed by the right stories and rumors strategically planted and cultivated over a long enough period of time.
When Evangeline was born, she already had two brothers who stood to inherit everything between them, and neither cared much for losing even the slightest amount of attention to her. She was raised with all the privileges her family’s wealth and status could provide and was taught to be a proper lady. This was the plan, at least; she had other ideas. Skillfully manipulating tutors and servants from an early age, Evangeline got her way and also learned the subjects her brothers studied, even those as archaic and seemingly pointless as fencing. She grew up fully aware her family’s cultured image was just that, an image. Her relatives hated each other, maneuvering for the slightest advantage and more than willing to use extreme methods.
Then Evangeline learned of the Silver Eye of Akron, an artifact of great power that had not been seen in almost a century, which she set out to claim as her own. It took Evangeline almost a year, a good portion of her inheritance as well as the majority of the guides she’d hired to navigate the remote location she’d managed to figure out was the holding place of the Silver Eye.
Evangeline returned home, drunk with power she‘d claimed, and left her entire family either dead or raving lunatics and the ancestral estate engulfed in flames. The Summerfield legacy perished that day, but Evangeline moved on. With her new tool, connections, and presence, teachers and employers were never hard to find. Eventually Empress, as Evangeline named herself, met Baron Twilight, a member of the inner circle of the Brimstone House, and a dreadful alliance was born.
