"If there's one thing I regret most in life, it's not making up with my birth mother, a close second is being an Occultist." - A signature phase used by the Depraved Queen.
Antoinette Lilian Avharain Eldor, a young woman who lived as she died, in a series of confusing events that she could never fully understand. Born Princess of Byson to the crowned Queen Chandra Avharain and King Ceris Avharain in their second set of twins. Twin sister to Kresnik Avharain, adoptive sister and wife of King Niklaus Eldor, Antoinette had a large family, and an even larger reputation for making a mess out of things, so much so that she mutated herself; becoming the first royal-blood woman to mutate themselves into a Malpercius as well as be the first known Avharain to be an Occultist and even end up wielding the Dark Blade Durendal toward the end of her life. If there was one thing the young woman wanted to do, it was make up for her past and do something good for once, however always twisting down the downward spiral of Occult Madness. She often went by the nickname of Toni to family.
Antoinette was, a very self-righteous and childish individual. Her dreams and ambitions always seemed to border near the impossible, and most of her personality in the latter half of her life came from her crippling depression, desire for redemption, and overall wanting and longing for love. Very anti-social outside of those she viewed as family and those that family had introduced to her, Antoinette was a rather poor conversationalist, yet oddly a great speechwriter.
She was known for doing things for the sake of others, sacrificing her own needs and wants for what she felt would be better for others. No matter what she did, her mentality was to make the world "better". If Occultism is powered by destruction, Antoinette's was powered by her own self-destructive tendencies.
Despite this, Antoinette was a loving mother, and had a weakness for children and a pathological desire to forgive those in her childhood, often times turning a blind eye to any wrong doings of those she cared about.
When not occupied by her depressive tendencies, she was known to be snarky and sarcastic. Sometimes a bit witty. A personality trait she picked up from Korrin Sakete.
Antoinette Avharain was born in age 787, Princess to the Avharain lineage and the village of Byson, Antoinette was rather sheltered as a child. Having only one true childhood friend from the age of four, she developed a strong bond to the boy named Vucari Sevren and by time she was 13, she had decided to marry him, ending up having a set of triplet children.
At the age of five, Antoinette experienced a forceful push of Occultism into herself by her Lightning Magic instructor, Daana Akida. Daana Akida was a mother figure to Antoinette, as Chandra; her mother was often to busy with the other children and her Queenly duties to tend to the ever-so needy Princess. By time she was age 9, her twin brother had attempted to, and nearly killed her. Causing the girl to run away only to attempt to return home moments too late. Her mother and home of Byson was destroyed by the threat of Mimics. However at age 9, Antoinette had also met with Hecate Rosengard , A woman who she had come to refer to as her mother; albeit reluctantly at first due to her love and mourning of her birth mother.
With the Death of Chandra Antoinette met a Doppleganger Mimic in the shape of the woman. Though Younger, Antoinette knew the woman as being a fake, but was unable to destroy the Mimic as she vowed due to the family-face.
