1. What is your full name?
Aurelia Cervarro Sadine. The middle name being my maiden name and the last one being my married name. Sadly they don't work all that well together.
2. Date of birth? How old are you?
26 maybe... 28? We're really not good at keeping track of these sorts of things, I don't even know what day I was born.
3. What is your birth sign?
...this is a thing?
4. What’s your earliest memory?
My sisters and I were sitting at a very small table and for some reason I can't recall we just started screaming. It was all very funny to us but I don't think my mother appreciated her three chubby little children (as we were all plump back then) yelling like barbarians.
5. Describe yourself in five words.
Umm... well I think that maybe.. damn I ran out of words! This is hardly fair you know! (crosses arms in a huff and sits there looking defeated)
6. Describe your accent.
Practically nonexistent compared to everyone else's. I can speak the common language very well, my husband on the other hand, had an accent so bad when I met him, that I could've sworn he was drunk or stupid. Come to find out later that he's both! Ha! But I digress, when I do have an accent, it would sound somewhat Italian to you.
7. Who in your life are you closest to?
My husband, Saul, who despite what I said earlier is neither a drunk nor an idiot. Logan, Silas, my sister Orianna, I think that covers who I'm closest to, though I would consider myself close with quite a few other people.
8. What phrase do you use the most?
I love you?... Fuck you? I'm not entirely sure really. I do say really a lot and mmmm quite often as well. And quite! I say quite, quite a lot. Wait... I didn't mean for that to happen.
9. Which item of clothing/accessory do you wear the most?
Braids in my hair, although everybody wears those. I do have a favourite pair of boots though. They're so beautiful but I've worn them so much that they're starting to fall apart and I'll need knew ones.
10. What is your favourite book?
"Ondorian Law and Policy' its only my favourite because I read it the most. Wouldn't you know books filled with laws and rules are incredibly boring to read. But as an ambassador its my duty to know the laws of the land, or some other useless nonsense like that.
11. It is nine o’clock on an average Monday morning. Where are you; what are you doing?
Unfortunately awake. If I'm home I'd be with my children and my husband, if he were also home, if I were away doing my actual job I'd probably be arguing with another ambassador over some stupid little quarrel our superiors had that we have to fix.
12. It is eleven o’clock on an average Friday night. Where are you; what are you doing?
When I was younger, out drinking and 'making merryment' as they say with my friends. These days I'm more likely to be asleep and snoring than anything else.
13. Of which of your talents are you most proud?
I can transform into a dragon. That's pretty cool wouldn't you say?
14. Which of your possessions have you had the longest?
Those boots I mentioned earlier, since I was sixteen. I haven't grown since then which is actually a little depressing. Though I am somewhat tall, so I guess its nothing to be too sad about.
15. Name three objects that are in your bedroom.
Bed, children's bed, boots.
16. If you were given an unlimited supply of money, what would be the first thing you would do with it?
Roll in it if we're being honest. My proper answer would be that I would save and invest and donate it in the proper function but really I'd probably throw it all on my bed and roll around gleefully in it. We're by no means poor but its not often we come by vast quantities of money.
17. Describe your current home.
Three or so rooms. A sitting room, a bedroom and the children have their own bedroom but they're afraid of monsters so right now they don't sleep in it.
18. What is your favourite name?
I think my sister has a lovely name: Ilithyia. Not much else about her is lovely though, not that you heard it from me.
19. How about your favourite colour?
Gold, Copper, Pewter. I like metallic colours.
20. Favourite room in your home?
The bedroom, we sleep there you know.
21. Favourite food?
22. Favourite drink?
Mmmm sweet summer wine.
23. Favourite fabric?
24. Favourite hairstyle?
I don't have a favourite one per say. But I do like to have my hair done elaborately with braids and pony-tails and up-dos. I do prefer hair styles where its obvious that my hair is curly, as when it is pulled straight I look very harsh and mean, like a scolding old school teacher.
25. Favourite time of day?
The middle of the night. I love the feeling of waking up and hearing nothing but silence. And then, when you listen in closer there's no silence as all. You can hear and smell the sweet night air, hear others breathing and moving, hear yourself moving, heard crickets and leaves rustling. Its so still and natural and calming.
26. Favourite sort of weather?
Sunny, I dislike being inside for too long and any chance I get to go lay out in the sun-warmed grass is a chance I take.
27. Do you like your handwriting?
28. Are you superstitious?
Oh yes. All my people are. Card tricks and sooth-sayers and mystics are demons if you ask me. What they do is unnatural, magical and worldly law has shown that reading mind and telling futures and knowing what card someone picked out of a deck are simply not possible. Anyone who can do such things is without a doubt consorting with some evil force.
29. How about religious?
30. If you are religious, how do you feel about those who aren’t? If you aren’t, how do you feel about those who are?
I feel like they're right. I mean we all know the Maker is real, I've just chosen to not believe in her.
31. Do you take any sort of medication?
Not that I know of.
32. Do you wear makeup/perfume/cologne?
makeup occasionally, perfume when I can afford it, no cologne.
33. Would you rather have lots of friends who secretly hate you, or no friends at all?
Well as someone heavily involved in politics I already have plenty of friends who secretly and not so secretly hate me. This way suits me just fine.
34. Name three people you admire.
Helea, My mother, Baal
35. Name three things that cross your mind a lot.
Why are children so loud? Why can't I just turn into a dragon to get them to shut up no matter how mean it is? How is it that my husband is better with children than I am? I'm the woman, I'm supposed to be the nurturing one.
36. What is your most unusual trait?
Hmm, not necessarily a trait but possibly the fact that I grew up very wealthy and now live in what my family would consider squalor (though we are rather well off). Its given me an interesting perspective on things I would say.
37. What is your strangest habit?
The obsessive way I take care of my shoes perhaps? I do love shoes.
38. Do you swear?
39. Do you smoke?
I don't think we have anything that you can smoke
40. Do you drink?
Oh of course. There's no life without drinking in Ondore.
41. What would others cite as your most irritating habit?
My short temper. Not that I get mad easily, but that I get frustrated easily. When I was younger I was rather unpredictable in terms of emotions. I was a tad bit crazy if I were being truthful.
42. If you could change one thing about your appearance, what would it be?
The tatoos. As any proper noblewoman would, I have quite a few tattoos. But they're getting faded and old and the more I look at them, the uglier they seem to get.
43. How about if you could change one thing about your past?
Definitely keep my mother alive. My entire life would be different if she had lived, and I don't think I would actually like that. For better or worse I've had a wonderful life and I'm thankful for the beautiful and amazing family and friends and opportunities that I've had. But I do miss her very much, and would like to be able to spend time with her again.
44. If you could change one thing about your life at the moment?
That I didn't have to be away from home so often. As an ambassador I travel frequently but I don't have the luxury of bringing my family with me. My husband has his own job and duties and my children have lessons and other responsibilities. I do spend a lot of time with them, I just wish it were more.
45. If you could change one thing about the rest of the world?
Things are going unnaturally well in the world lately actually. So my only change would be somewhat superficial. These horrendous new shoes have come into style, they elevate your whole body eight inched off the ground and you can hardly walk in them. They're not suited for any kind of movement or practicality. If I could I would destroy all those shoes and throw anyone who tried to make them again in a dungeon.
46. Is there anything else you’d like us to know about you?
That I really, really like pie. I never get pie. So if somebody could get me a slice I'd appreciate it more than anything and would owe you a million favors.
