Another char from “The Wanderer”
This is Empress Melissa Joan Roberta Catherine St. James
Known as the Child Empress or The Rose Of Honora
(Honora is the country where most of The Wanderer takes place)
She ascended the thrown when she was eleven (though she’s in her 20’s here) and her story is very tragic. Romeo and Juliet got nothing on her and King Laurent. Romeo and Juliet just had to worry about their families. Melissa and Laurent’s countries are at war and they are the respective ruling monarchs. Pride is a cold bed fellow.
She dies by the way. Very painfully.
He mourns her for the rest of his life. . .even though he’s basically the one who killed her.
