Background/Personality

Strong-willed - Confident - Ambitious - Charismatic - Judgmental
Considerate - Formal - Observant - Manipulative - Strategic
Courageous - Proud - Stubborn - Thoughtful - Stern
  • Very socially awkward due to being very aware of the fact that now that she is no longer pharaoh or even royal. Doesn't know how to interact with others on casual terms.
  • While the aforementioned causes her to be anti-social, her political nature drives her to be desperate for allies and against making enemies.
  • And thus, she is very cautious of those around her (unless her player isn't paying attention, which is OFTEN).
  • Wariness on her part must not be mistaken for fear. Knows that showing fear immediately gives the other leverage. Whether she is, in fact, fearful is very difficult to know for certain and often unlikely.
Based on various female pharaohs of ancient Egypt, particularly Hatshepsut and her family.

History.

Ruled Egypt from age 27 (formally proclaiming herself as king at 29) to age 50, when she succumbed to a bone disease in early middle-age. While her rule was punctuated by disputes over true succession with her step-son, she proved to be an effective King of Egypt. She asserted her right to rule after her husband's death through her father, who was pharaoh before her. She was the only child left of his, and while her husband was technically king, Neferu was of a much stronger political character. This strength held back her young but hot-headed nephew from ruling until her own death.
She bore two daughters, just over a year apart from each other. Their paternity was rumored to be not of her husband. He, however, had a son with a concubine. This son was the challenging nephew that would succeed Neferu.
Towards the end of her rule, her High Priest died under mysterious circumstances.
Among the achievements of her rule, she did much self-promoting. It could be seen as the reflection of a large ego, or the necessary steps to take to ensure political survival. It is likely some sort of mixture.

I think my Akhenaton would

I think my Akhenaton would like this character very, very much. Someone he can talk about home to.
He's named after a pharoah, but he wasn't one.
AND kudu. I love kudus so much.

FEEEESH: I've been wanting to

FEEEESH: I've been wanting to do a non-fan character with ancient Egyptian ties, so here she is xD I've always been fascinated by the female pharaohs, and how their sex didn't seem to cause too many problems in their rule when they did happen to rule. It seemed more of an order of succession thing? Not sure, but she's kinda my project for researching more.

Wanin-Sun: I'm probably still a while from making her fully active, but I'll look forward to them meeting! I need to settle on more details of her history.

Okami: Oh no I get it entirely. There's a lot of research going into making these types of characters.
I always seem to pick the character type and era there is little to no information on -_-' I hope to have a character or two meet her one day!
