Courtiers and Criminals
Dominique du Montaigne
Dominique is 19 years old. She has large blue eyes, and is thin, pale, and delicate, as if a strong hug could break her into pieces. She has curly light brown hair, which gives her a mousy appearance.
The youngest of the Empereur’s nine daughters, Dominique has always known that she is a disappointment to her father. Not only was she not a boy, she also lacked all but the barest hint of sorcery. Until her recent marriage to Montegue, her father has ignored her, or treated her as an inconvenience. Despite this, and despite the shy facade she puts on, Dominique is a very clever, capable young woman, making the most of her place in life. She has a grudging admiration for Montegue’s honesty.
