Edit: Shifted her stats around to make her better at finesse
Born and raised in Mons Electi, Adeline is a bright, ambitious young woman, who always got her way through a combination of charm and manipulation, managing to put herself in good places and to avoid most chores. She didn’t want to be a common maiden, and did everything she could to climb up the covenant social ladder and be put in service of the magi, despite her poor skill as a handmaiden, something she did not intend to stay all her life.
Once there, she managed to seduce Isen and attach herself to her service, not by her cleaning skills, but by interesting herself to all these things that were bothersome and incomprehensible to him, such as politics and social graces. Despite this, she feels genuine loyalty to Isen as he gave her her chance to prove herself, and always treated her well and respectfully.
It’s been 5 years since (she did this in 1223), and she is slowly becoming more and more indispensable to Isen. She has increased her knowledge of hermetic and supernatural matters, established a tentative spy network, and plans to become his mouthpiece and figurehead in all social and political matters. Knowing his plans for mundanes, she also wants to prove more useful on supernatural matters and has managed to grasp the basics of Finesse, so that she may prove also useful on that point. The goal being to prove herself at the very least useful to him on all matters, so as to further secure her position.
Her ambitions doesn’t stop there, though. She had always wondered about the magi’s longevity, and, since she learned of Longevity Rituals, she has begun pressuring Isen to get one, arguing that it would help him secure her services for a long time. The sooner, the better, as she intends to keep her good looks. Since she recognizes that she can also be replaced by a more cunning and experimented advisor, she is also considering trying to marry him, but she hasn’t even begun trying to push this up, since she fears this might be going too far. Yet.
As for Isen, he is slightly aware of Adeline’s ambitious nature, although not of its extend, but he doesn’t care much. She is quite useful to him, discharging him more and more of much bothersome matters, is great in the bed, and, well, he likes her.
