Aspects
High Concept: Terminally ill, overlooked child of distant royal blood, I will make my mark on the monarchy before I die
Trouble: The Monarchy will live in the heavens, even if it must die on Earth
Aspects:
  • Poster Child: Olivia is so waif like, innocent looking, and somewhat sickly, that people tend to want to help her, or at least have a very hard time resisting her innocence, overlooking her illness, and assigning her blame and/or attacking her.
  • Archie, The Duchess and me: Ever since the Duchess learned of her royal niece and her illness, the Duchess has been her champion and her close friend. Archie also remains a staunch supporter given their close age, views towards Transhumanism, and awful but common family circumstances. The three have been know to have outings, and perhaps plots, together
  • The Sword of Damocles: Olivia has lived her life with a terrible genetic mitochondrial mutation, and while her status as a royal has provided her the very best in medical care to manage the disease, all the specialists have indicated that it would be fatal near the onset of puberty. As such, she has been urgently searching for a cause to give her life great impact and meaning.
  • What did I just sign up for?: Olivia swore fealty to the PD with great haste to try to save her life from her genetic death sentence. She is very sketchy on the details of the treatment she has had but Archie pleaded with her to try. Based on their strong bond and trying to spare him more loss, she signed up. She isn't sure how her treatment and her commitment to the PD are related, but she is very excited to be part of this group that appears to share the same views regarding transhumanism, humanity, and the need to push to live in the stars.
  • Archie takes the High road, I take the Side road: Archie and Olivia absolutely share the same intense drive for a better world - but Archie works to fix it, Olivia intends to change it. Olivia has the tools and games the system, but will stop short of 'at any cost' only because of their relationship and Archie's indomitable will. Archie has the presence, breeding, and authority to always do the right thing, but affectionately 'lives' with Olivia's results towards their common goal. Together? A staggering combination.

Appearance

A small frail, teen girl that looks more like a tween, appears demure, harmless, and easily ignored. What you don't see on the surface is her incredible willpower and fortitude that has enabled her to survive, both physically - with her devastating disease and it's symptoms and harsh treatments - as well as socially thrust into the complex political and social environment of her family.

For most, her diminutive appearance is enough to discourage conflict. Those that do try to take advantage of her tend to get completely blindsided by her quickness and ability to forcefully take control of the situation through manipulation of any weakness she can find. She will allow you to feel you've intimidated or underestimated her, but has both the killer instinct, determination, and fortitude to make your life miserable.

A renaissance girl both in education and experience, she has received all the benefits of a technological and medical explosion in western upper class society, and she fully embraces Transhumanism, and the belief there is a need to change to the monarchy and drag it forward into 22 century dominance and a rejuvenated relevance among the Galaxy.

Backstory

Coming from a distant branch of the royal family tree, Olivia is the result of the union of remote royal cousin and her consort, a unremarkable Indian servant. She was born in India, and while the birth was mildly scandalous, the intrigue quickly changed when it was revealed that the baby had a deadly genetic illness. Olivia was transported to Britain and spent most of her babyhood in treatment facilities. As such, and due to a perceived defect, her parents had little connection or contact with her, physically or emotionally. She has been occupied mostly with making the most out of a life that has been expected to be cut tragically short by a rare genetic illness affecting her mitochondria. Her aunt, the Duchess of Luna, took her in, championed her cause, garnering support from more wealthy and connected aristocrats, and organizations and charities, all to ensure that she would receive the best nurturing and care as possible in what was expected to a very brief lifespan.

She has spent most of her 14 years bouncing around from the very best treatment facilities and the very best education opportunities. An exceptionally bright and child and quick learner, she has made the most of her abilities and status to attend the most exclusive schools - culminating with her attendance at Gordonstoun where she forged an powerful bond with her cousin, Prince Archie.

Financial Dependence (4L): Estranged from her parents, she is financially dependent on the Duchess for her education, and the basics of her life. Without her she does not have the financial means to survive. Quite often she stays as a guest at the finest places in the society, but has zero financial clout and is at the whim of the codependent relationship and expectations that requires. She owns nothing of consequence, certainly nothing from the royal family, and has to struggle to find places to sleep. Vulnerable to Financial Stress, taking +2FS for every expense.;

GG Toys: She has had the regular protection of the Grenadier Guard and regularly 'toys' with them and uses them as playthings. She has experience being protected by Royal Guard Armour and RPOs. Dale is especially irritated by her, and knows her well.;

Urumi Bored: Olivia is a master at fighting with her ancestral, ancient weapon the Urumi and it's weapon style. She has adapted it so that she can use nano-filament blades and is incredibly deadly with it.;

Mycroft's secret is safe with me: Olivia has a special relationship with Mycroft, given the amount of idle time she has spent alone in treatment. Even on Earth, Olivia has had frequent contact with Mycroft, and feels great affection for the AI. Olivia believes that Mycroft is a true AI, and while Mycroft isn't acknowledging it, it's been clear to her that he has made a lot of things easier for her than a normal virtual assistant / machine intelligence would. Mycroft's motivation for the affectionate relationship is unclear. He has referred to Olivia as a "disruptor" species that can invoke positive change to the Key Stone species....whatever that means.;

Urumi BOOMY: Because she's a master of Urumi fighting, Olivia can use any flexible blades, ropes, whips, chains, etc to give her +2 to quickly attack.;
