I am "Genevieve Chastisse de Vaucresson", a 16th century French woman, the daughter of a farmer with properties on the outskirts of Paris. My mother died when I was 8 and my two older sisters married off before I was 11, so I was fostered out to a local noble lady for my training in the domestic arts.

During a period of some travelling around Europe for my education in my late teens, I ran away from my chaperone after falling for a charming mercenary whom I desperately attempted to follow. That did not end well. From there, I spent time in Italy where I was 'adopted' by and became friends with a group of ladies from Istanbul who in sharing with me the foods and dances of their lands gave me a love for all things eastern.

Later, in 1569, my path took me to England where I found I could make a living as a seamstress to the noble ladies of the Queen's court. But, getting itchy feet after a few years I returned to Italy, caught a boat with my friends to Istanbul, and shortly after that a merchant train to India. Ended up in the court of Akbar as a handmaiden to Jodhaa. But, court life was dull, so I dressed up as a man and went out with the army and learned to ride a horse and shoot a bow.

Eventually the guys decided a nice 'boy' like me needed a wife and fixed me up with a cute Russian girl I ran into and made friends with in Kashmir, and next thing we knew we were married. She doesn't mind, I'm in heaven, and my army buddies still don't have a clue that 'Veer' isn't quite the man he seems.

Note:As an severely sensitive introvert with ADD, it is unlikely that I will ever be able to contribute by taking on a Kingdom office, due to what would be, for me, a possibly toxic-ly overwhelming amount of interaction and information. I really wish I were capable of serving in a higher office, however I would happily support anyone holding such an office in any way possible.
