Though Sharla never disliked Saturn, the very idea of a modern woman having been pawned away by her own father was apalling to her. She fought with her mother for days before agreeing to meet this arrogant *older* fellow who adored her. It wasn't love at first sight, perhaps a bit of like, but no love. Sharla admits to her daughter, Nia, that perhaps love was never meant to be between them, but there was such a strong devotion and fondness that it may as well have been *love*.
Sharla Napol DeBroc Mattiasa, Empress of Riod, LUP
Race: Riod (full-blooded & proud of it)
v3/4 Riod, 1/4 a muddled mixture of Ulanth, Iun, and Antan.
Born: Esa 13th (13th month)
Lopin 2nd (equal to September)
Age: 38 (at time of departure)
24 (at time of departure)
Hair Color: Vivid (manic panic) Orange
Eye Color: Brown
Appearance: Saturn is quite overweight, and makes no attempt to rememdy the fact. He's typically jolly, though at times can be too worrisome. Saturn frowns around Iren, whom he considers a friend even though he's scared of the man. He modeled his new crown after the one he wore on his planet, changing the Riod symbol at the top into a small cystaline model of his planet with its rings and a scaled down golden Riod arrow top it (pointing up toward *the apex*). He has curly locks when they grow out (especially at the nape of his neck) and a curled mustache. He loves his long cape, it makes him feel "more majestic".
Sharla is quiet, reserved. She's frail, thin, and when she smiles her eyes light up like a cloud of swamp gas that has sunlight reflecting off of Venus and into it. She isn't fond of the palace life, which is why she chose to attend University instead of going to Court. Her tiara is a scaled down version of Saturn's, including the Riod arrow atop it. Her hair is only a bit below shoulder length now, having been much longer in the past, much like Nia's, only straight. Her gowns are form fitting, by Riod custom, even during her long pregnancy.
Weapons: Saturn carries his "Saturn Rod" which holds a portion of each of the four crystals in it. The core of the planet atop his crown is the Life & Soul crystal. He is not a hand-to-hand combat kind of guy.
Sharla is completely adverse to violence but Saturn created a small version of his rod for her when they first arrived on the planet. It had a bit of all four crystals in it as well as a dagger's blade on the end. This later was bestowed upon Pakhar Meemo, the Saturnian noble chosen to marry the daughter Sharla & Saturn were trying to concieve.
Attacks: Finale (a combination attack that encompasses all bits of his powers).
Talisman: He has a necklace, technically it should belong to the current Emperor of Riod but Saturn "accidently" took it with him when he left, that his father had crafted for him on the day of his birth.
Sharla has a small white jewlery box that was given to her by Yulen, the man she'd hoped to marry until his death during their junior year at Kryss University.
Favorite Color: Dark blue
Favorite Food: Just about anything, but especially a Cheesecake-like pudding called Ulla-mo.
Kiroa (sautéed mushrooms over steamed rice)

Pakhar Meemo's parents, Ulla-mo
