Queen Laurel is the reigning ruler of the Kingdom of Northern Ice, and so officially the feudal lord of both Baron Padraig Ailil (despite his Unseelie status) and Lady Catherine, as well as the exiled lord Jealous Galen. Events have shown Catherine to be outside of Laurel’s control, however – leading to Padraig’s arrival, decades ago, to observe her silent rebellion against Laurel’s rule.
Queen Laurel is easily the most passionate and tempestuous of Concordia’s monarchs. She is loving and nurturing one moment, then cold and aloof, then fiery and resolute. All these personality changes are made well within the confines of a strong Seelie persona, however.
Laurel is, perhaps, Concordia’s most potent monarch. She is both brilliant and inspired in her leadership; she also has the distinction of being the most accomplished of sorceresses among Concordia’s first tier leadership. Even High King David Ardry exercises little control over her. Speculation about her is a favourite pastime among the fae of Concordia. Her roller coaster love affair/arranged marriage with the “Shadow Court” lord Duke Rococo, is of special interest. Queen Laurel is also considered a singer of near-legendary talent among the sidhe (a high honour indeed). She is a grand diva and part owner of a major Canadian metropolitan Opera company.
