INTRODUCTION TO A
A VENOM VICE
Princess Bellardia Pimpernel Andryala Orchid is far more skilled at crafting highly toxic potions that are prone to explode than she is at basic human interaction. This is unsurprising as, unbeknownst to her, the king’s obsession with finding one of the Four True Heirs of Matheque (along with his ever increasing age and illness) led to an extreme sense of paranoia. He banished all the nobles and gentry from the castle (save for on special occasions every now and then, of course). Thus, Princess Bellardia grew up in a nearly empty castle (aside from all the maidservants, manservants, cooks, gardeners, guards, tutors, the king’s councillors, her Lady-in-Waiting, and the court soothsayer/alchemist/doctor, Merdwick. So, practically deserted). She is quite used to being generally ignored until on her eighth birthday she is given the gift of her very own jester.
This boy, Jack, proves to be her very dearest of friends (not that he had much competition in that regard) despite a past he won’t discuss and his predisposition to causing chaos. Aside from crafting poisons and the occasional small explosive to clear her head, he is perhaps her only anchor to sanity when she comes of age and is thrust into a world of political intrigue, arranged marriages, the machinations of cloying nobility, plots of murder, whispers of regicide, and the darker parts of her family history that she would really prefer not to think about. But of course she doesn’t have feelings for Jack. That would be ridiculous. He’s a jester. Even if his perpetual acrobatics over the years paired with a very kind puberty and his intensely green eyes may resulted in certain aspects of him that might be rather pleasant to look upon…
