Her Majesty's Companions

Here ye shall encounter a crudely illustrated listing of all Her Majesty's associates and friends. Such listing may adversely affect the enjoyment of reading chapters I through XIII of Her Majesty's encounters, so please read carefully.


 Her Majesty Queen Olivia came into power after the sudden deaths of her parents. She was briefly enamored with a charming knight, Sir Gregory, but has since set her affections upon her loyal courtier, Jenner. Her kingdom is a small one, protected by a larger kingdom, but please do not share that information with outsiders, or else Her Majesty will have my head separated from my body. She first appeared in Chapter I, Page 1.

"It's wrong to love outside of marriage. Why should I have to sin to love?" --Chapter III, Page 11.


  Jenner is Queen Olivia's favorite courtier. He is exceedingly loyal to her, but fears to return her affections, instead wishing for the Queen to be wed to one more worthy and powerful. He first appeared in Chapter I, Page 2.

"I hope to stay at Your Majesty's side forever...I just...we cannot marry..." --Chapter III, Page 11
