Active Johanna


Lord of Altera
{art by me}


Name: {Note: This is unknown IRP.} Adelheid von Hallon
Variant of Adalheidis, meaning ‘noble.’
Hallon coming from the ancient westrons, a family of warlords and politicians, ruling house of the Empire of Anhald.
Nicknames: Jo, Adel, Adelaide

Alias: Johanna Fischer- a well-kept guise that most if not all people still know her by. She doesn't intend to give it up easily. She introduces herself simply as "Johanna" to all that may ask.
Meaning 'God is gracious.' A variant of the alias her father took, Johan- although that was unknown to her until recently. "I suppose it all had to come into a full circle."
Titles: She prefers not to be associated with them.
Princess of Anhald, Acturus, and Lavoyarde
Lady of Hallon
Pretender to the Throne

Age: She just turned 17.
Gender: Female.
Race: Human, Northerner. Anhalder.
Social Status: Supposedly of noble blood.
Height: 5’7”
Weight: Around 135 lbs.

Homeland: The North. Wellenbrecher.
Current Home: With... Family.
Wealth: Dwindling. She has none to her name but the left over wages from previous work, which she intends to change soon.

Status: Battling with her own conscience about her identity; her name, her purpose, and her place in the world. She refuses to take her birth name but knows that her alias, Johanna Fischer, is a battle that cannot be won. With either identity comes downfalls and struggle, things that she is not yet ready to face fully in light of her past. For now, she introduces herself as simply "Johanna" to all that ask.

Lord of Altera

Albrecht von Hallon (Father): "Truly, father, I always felt that I failed you. My birth must have been the worst day of your life, when it should have been the greatest. I was your firstborn. I wanted you to love me but I was a girl. And I was scared and you hated me." Secretly she hopes that she never has to face the man again in this plane of existence.
Josephine Varyn (Mother): "I try not to dwell on my memories of you. I'm not sure if you were distant or hated me or both. I hope you're proud of me, wherever you are. I won't disappoint you." She wants to see her mother just once more.
Sigmund von Hallon (Brother): She has not seen him in a long time, but holds no grudge against him for being born and sending her life spiraling. She hopes that he is nothing like their parents.
James Varyn (Cousin): She is unsure of him, of if his words will ring true. Wether or not they do, she needs his guidance now more than ever. { TheDeester }
Gael (Trouble)​
he is more honest than most knights she has met- then again, she hasn't met many. She wonders what caused such a rift between him and the Kanes, and she wonders if he knew her parents. { Scardrac }​
Jaden (Ranger)​
she prefers him to his counterparts but knows very little about him. He seems to have an almost... Childish and spontaneous side to him that makes her slightly wary. { CloakedReaper }​
Otto (Loyal)​
he owes her a cloak. She respects his trust for Charles and thinks he is a decent kid. { Paint }​
Lisbet (Plain)​
she is a kind woman, Johanna thinks. She isn't sure if Lisbet is Charles' mistress or his servant- not that Johanna cares much. She appreciates having some sort of comforting company. { Elz }​
Raalvara Varyn (Emotional)​
she acts emotionally and does not check her husband when he crosses into uncomfortable territory. While she told James to let her go, she is still unsure of the woman and where her loyalties lie. "Stay in your lane. We might be related by marriage, but please, I can handle myself. I don't need you to protect me." { Raal }​
Elizabeth Kane (Transparent)​
"Like your brother, you think yourself superior to those around you. You think that your power demands respect. It doesn't, Lady Kane." { NIAH }​
Charles Kane (Egotistical)​
"You stand on an Empire that your mother built and call it your own. I thought we weren't our parents, but you still milk her work for what its worth.."{ Lannis }​
Schmidt (Anhalder) { x }​
a whoremonger. He knows to some extent her true identity but his romantic advances have thrown a wrench in her strong belief in his loyalty to Anhald. While they are not completely unwarranted or immutual, they are wholly unwanted, which she has made clear to him. She is aware of his tendency to lash out violently when angered, which has occurred twice already with her as the object of focus. This is a quality among many about him that she dislikes greatly.{ Boofenshmirtz }

I like your reference. I almost used her for Niah a couple times, but never committed. Kahlan is a good character and so is Johanna. :)

wot. They said they didn't care who her parents were or weren't, and she took her wages and left.
