As the princess of the Air Kingdom, Courtly is expected to one day rule it. She doesn't like to think about that too much, so she is generally more of a laid back person. She doesn't necessarily ignore her problems, she just shoves them off to the side until she's prepared to face them. It's hard to get a rise out of her because most of her responses are usually sarcastic and blatant. There is no in between. She's a very straight forward person and doesn't like beating around the bush, it's just not her style.
Courtly Ariadne Jopan was the second royal child produced by the queen and king of the Air Kingdom, as a result of... some interesting occurrences during their fourth anniversary. Nine months later on July Fourth, Courtly was born. Courtly was named Courtly because her parents wanted her to be original, despite her generic appearance of blonde hair and brown eyes.
Despite being born in Australia, almost immediately, she was taken back to Elementrium several days later, but for some reason, still developed the Australian accent that is known to many today. The reason for this remains unknown. As Courtly grew, she began observing and realizing that being the ruler of a kingdom was a lot more cut out than what she wanted. Her brother was a Tri-Elemental, which immediately meant he was out for the throne, therefore she would inherit the crown.
She didn't want that. She did not want the responsibilities of a queen, she did not want to govern a kingdom, she just wanted to be her without any attachments. After awhile, Courtly began resenting her status and wished to be treated like a normal child. She never really got her wish, but servants were more lenient about her parent's orders towards her. Ever since she turned thirteen, she's been attending the Academy, and still goes there now. As of right now, Courtly is seventeen.
