Introducing, Rhealina Nacht, the eldest daughter to King Karim and Queen Scarlette Nacht of Edel, and twin to Diamentria Nacht.
Well, I finally finished it. Even though all I had to do was color/shade. Officially, I am a turtle. :c
Why doesn't she have dark-skinned/look like Diamentria? Rhealina is an illegitimate child. She isn't, yet she is. Scarlette was married to Karim when Rhealina was conceived. During an extended leave due to Monarch responsibilities, Scarlette engaged in a sexual relationship with Grand Master Audric as a way to fill the emptiness. It is completely possible for twins to have different father's. I will try and explain, but be mature. In easy terms, Rhealina's egg was already present, thus being fertilized by Audric. After fertilization, another egg was released, but around the same time, Scarlette had sex with Karim, now the other egg is fertilized by different sperm than the other. Rhealina looks almost like a spitting-image of her father. Her ancestry is never questioned because one; it would be going against the monarch by making such suggestions, and two; She looks like Scarlette, whereas Diamentria looks like Karim, minus the eyes on both of them. Pink eyes run in Scarlette's family, so that was the other part.
I will say this, when she finds out she isn't Karim's daughter, therefore not a princess, she loses it and has a mental breakdown.
Anyways, I hope it is ok. I know the shading is shitty, I really don't care for my shading job. ;-;
Well, after three years of marriage, which was their halcyon time, Karim was crowned king. The kingdom of Edel is tied to a bigger one, Vorstellen. He is typically gone for months because of this. Scarlette is very dependent upon touch, and communication, whereas Karim is not. The absence began to get to Scarlette, causing her to manipulate Audric into having sex with her because of how empty she felt, and thinking this would fill the gap. After the fact though, she deeply regretted it, as a way to keep it a secret she took the memory from Audric and kept it in a crystal pendent for the time being(she eventually gives it back, but this is when Rhealina is practically an adult). Scarlette is the only one, I suppose besides The Great Dragon, that knows. So neither Karim or Audric know to be honest. xD They find out at the same time, one finds out they are a father, the other finds out he isn't.
