¤ Personality: Philomena started life as a cold, reserved and stilted person. She is a caged bird who has grown up her entire life within the confines of the empire and therefore relates to other birds in gilded cages. In her childhood, as the heir apparent and princess, it was discovered that her natural Adorean abilities were stunted. Her parents and handlers took special measures to conceal their daughter's birth defect from the kingdom, going so far as to prohibit her from ever leaving the palace and never playing with other children of the court. Because of this, Philomena is socially awkward and suspicious of the outside world. The only other children with which she had any playtime were her two younger sisters and servants. After the death of Itzubella and their mother, Anora became the most precious part of Philomena's life. Unfortunately, Princess Anora is adventurous and cannot stand to stay home, she leaves on interstellar adventures for months at a time and Philomena is often left alone. She is, in some ways, a prisoner of the throne.
Most consider her haughty and condescending, underneath that she is innocent and insecure. She has deep seated trust issues and fears intimacy, covering up her insecurities with a veneer of ice. Throughout her childhood she was instructed not to allow anyone to touch her skin (lest they discover her handicap), she grew up believing sexual encounters were taboo. She doesn't understand males and doesn't easily communicate with them. They are rare among her species and she is a bit scared of them. Not given to adventures, spells of passion, infatuation or mirth, Philomena seeks security from asserting herself as a divine being and considers the responsibility of the throne her primary duty in life. She loves her sister deeply and will not hesitate to throw down her life in her defense, but in spite of her good intentions, Philomena can be ruthless or even downright cruel.
Update: Since meeting Sir Lancelot, her knight and retainer, Philomena has become less hard. Her personality is more tender and open, she is more given to exploration, curiosity and experimentation. She is less bigoted and now open to new ideas. She is still more prim than her exuberant sister, but her temperament has become lighter and more relaxed.
Philomena married her knight Lancelot, and has born him a son, Prince Cyrus Arthur Epithymedes.
