The Queen of Swords

The powerful and dynamic Queen of Swords embodies a nordic and austere aloofness that places her above and beyond the grasp of normal man. She has suffered the depths and survived by the ability to cut off her emotions through her keen intellect, as a result she may seem bitter and cold to those unaware of her true power. She stands in balance with her right hand held up against the past, her eyes looking towards the future, and to the sword she wields in her left hand. She is a master of discernment, and knows the proper method of cutting away the dross of illusion to reach the golden core. Her mind and tongue are equally sharp, and she may hurt those who are too emotionally inclined. Her awareness and ability to see the bigger picture is unmatched. She stands above the world high up in a tree with her snowy owl companion, who is also her protector and will not hesitate to attack any being who seems to threaten his Queen. Together these two are adept in the dark arts and most comfortable in the realms of the night world.
