Warriors of Unia
Princess of Khanau
The second of five fire Genasi children born to the King of Khanau, Miliani has no patience for anything that distracts from her goal of succeeding her father to the throne. In order to assure her ascent, Miliani has two options: either impress her father so much that he declares her as his rightful heir, or eliminate the competition. Of her siblings, she has only gained the support of her youngest brother, Lono. Her younger sister has no interest in ruling, which leaves only her other two brothers as her rivals.
In public, Miliani is the perfect princess, with the grace of royalty, the flawless manners of a born diplomat, and the mental and physical strength to back up any ruling. In private, however, the princess’s temper often gets the best of her. She has been known to fly into the kind of explosive rage that only a fire Genasi could truly understand. Her brother Lono, knowing her nature and her one (possibly fatal) flaw, suggested that an extended trip across Unia might help to give her some perspective and help her to tame her own emotional outbursts.
Miliani was reluctant to agree to the trip in the first place, but nearly let her temper loose on her beloved brother when he convinced her to go to Ciafaran for the Founding Day celebrations. Their mother was born a peasant in Ciafaran, and Miliani feels that accepting this aspect of her heritage will somehow weaken her position in Khanau. For now, she has placed her trust in Lono’s cooler, more logical thinking. After all, Miliani knows that her brother wants to see her on the throne almost as badly as she does herself.
