Info
I wish to see no more battles for power and authority, yet my decision here may create another tragedy like the one that took my family. I do not want to plant the seeds of war.
— Eglantine to Rozemyne in Part 4 Volume 2, Chapter 13: A Tea Party with Eglantine

Eglantine (エグランティーヌ, Egurantiinu) is an archduke candidate of Klassenberg. She recently graduated from the Royal Academy, and is engaged to Prince Anastasius[1].

Header.pngAppearance

Eglantine has bright orange eyes and wavy golden hair that she wears in elaborate braids. Due to her appearance and her skill at performing the dedication whirl, she is often compared to the Goddess of Light[2].

Header.pngPersonality

Eglantine is polite and soft-spoken. Although she is usually reserved, she loves art and can become animated when discussing music and dance.

After losing her family in the recent civil war, Eglantine developed a strong aversion to political conflict. She values peace and is willing to make great personal sacrifices to prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future[3].

Header.pngHistory

Eglantine is a former princess. Her father was the previous third prince of Yurgenschmidt, one of the main figures in the recent civil war. Her entire family was killed when an assassin poisoned their food. Eglantine, who had not yet been baptized and did not eat dinner with the family, was the sole survivor[4].

After Eglantine was orphaned, she was adopted by her grandfather, at the time the Aub Klassenberg. While he adopted her for her protection, he later came to regret his actions. He feels he stole her birthright, and he is determined to have her marry Anastasius or Sigiswald to regain her original status as royalty[3]. Since then her grandfather has retired and passed the position of Aub on to his successor, but he is still an active and very influential participant in Klassenberg's political landscape. According to Prince Anastasius, she has more elemental affinities than the current king and is expected to exceed his mana capacity before she reaches adulthood[4].

Due to her elegance and skill, she was chosen for the part of the Goddess of Light at the dedication whirl performed at her graduation ceremony at the Royal Academy. During the two years she and Lady Christine shared at the academy, the two bonded over their shared appreciation of art and attended many tea parties together[2].

Header.pngTrivia

  • Eglantine seems to have a weakness for direct compliments, as Rozemyne's earnest admiration and Anastasius's effusive praise both leave her flustered.
  • Eglantine is said to resemble her mother a lot in appearance, who was also wooed enthusiastically by a prince[1].
  • Eglantine's name is derived from Églantine, which is Briar rose in French.
  • Eglantine regularly came in as first-in-class during her academy education[5].
