High Councillor of the Commonwealth of Blackthorn
Emilia Whiterose Rivers is a Valtaran politician and the de-jure Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Triumvirate of Ceyreto. She is most known for her activity within the Ceyreto-Zydel Conflict, her outspoken opposition to the Valtaran monarchy, and the Travels and Tales series of novels, documenting her time as Foreign Minister.
Emilia is a svelte, and pale figure with long, brown hair going down to her upper back. Despite her purple motif, her eyes are a strong blue colour, reminiscent of the ocean. Emilia is most commonly seen wearing a long purple dress, with her face decorated by a pair of glasses and a white rose in her hair. When not in her common attire, she can be seen sporting a variety of outfits, all of which purple.
Little is known of Rivers' early life. According to some, she appeared in Valtara shortly after the Valtaran Civil War, while others claim that she was born as a mere citizen of Blackthorn, so she kept a low profile before gaining a seat on the council of the Triumvirate of Ceyreto.
From birth to the end of Valtara as a sovereign nation, Rivers did little of noteriety. She was a mere Valtaran citizen, living in a house of middling income in the north of the city of Blackthorn.
Shortly after the formation of the Triumvirate of Ceyreto, Emilia was approached by Lord Gem Valtara with an offer to gain a seat on the council after her trustworthyness was vouched for by a close friend of Rivers' in the Valtaran military. She would go on to be one of a handful to represent Valtara and the city of Blackthorn within the Triumvirate.
About a year and a half later, she was approached again with another offer by Lord Valtara, this time offering the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs. Rivers immediately accepted the position and would begin her job by attempting to forge relations between the Triumvirate and the nearby Empire of Aether (generally more known by their capital city's name, "Cielo".) It was at this point where the Travels and Tales novels would start being written.
Rivers, as a high-priority member of the Ceyreto government, found herself as the first victim of Zydel aggression. She was jumped and beaten by a gang of mercenaries during a short meeting with the leader of the city of Fort Khirom, and only survived after a swift rescue by a Fort Khirom delegate. For the duration of the war, Rivers would hide away in the city of Cielo, where she was inadvertently transformed into a Rat fae. She would be known for being one of the most outspoken opposers of the war.
After the end of the war and the salting of Blackthorn, Rivers would be one of the main pioneers of the Zethortal project.
