Burning Fail: Redux
Widow, Court Darling & Covert Mistress of Duke Devereux
Belief #1: The duke has crossed the line and doesn’t show proper gratitude for all we’ve done for him. He will either agree to marry me and stop being a dick or I will sink this ship with both of us on board.
Belief #2: There is going to be fierce competition for the throne. I will do whatever it takes to make sure the Duke claims it, and I’ll start by taking Sir Sernan out of the running. First I’ll win Sir Coen to our side.
Belief #3: The dwarf’s desires can’t be met and the request will drive the Duke to make bad decisions, i will either convince him to settle for a lesser price or find blackmail material.
Instinct: Always be fashionably late.
Instinct: Always make the Duke jealous at court and in company.
Instinct: Always protect my stomach.

Since then she’s lived life large at court despite the Queen’s best attempts to kick her out, entertaining and rejecting all offers to remarry.
