It’s not easy being the Protector Queen, with the safety of the whole Queendom on her shoulders. Usually the daily stresses of being a Queen don’t get Florencia down, but the memories of the past, and names of those that have been lost, will sometimes overwhelm the survivors.
There isn’t a single citizen of the Queendom who hasn’t suffered loss. A hazard of living in an a post apocalyptic world.
Berdine, the fixer and the last of my five queens. Her faction are in charge of tools, and technology. Recently her faction has been working with solarpanels, and slowly electricity has become more widespread in their Queendom. Those in her faction are in charge of upkeep of machines, weapons and anything else that might need repair. Currently technology is a weird mish-mash of low tech, and more current technology, though things are often taken apart, and studied. They are also capable of creating new things out of old.
Electricity and other such things have to be self-sustained since there is no more companies to run such things.
Berdine is in a relationship with Karla. She is the most introverted of all the Queens, though she is the most regal looking of all the Queens, with how she carries herself and how she dresses. Sometimes she will ‘translate’ Karla’s nonsense nerdy references since Berdine was a nerd once too. Her guilty pleasure are comics, and sci-fi books.Often times she can seem aloft, and can come off as a loner. This is not true, she just gets lost in thought, and obsessed with her current projects. Karla helps with her coming out of her own space, being very outgoing, and an extrovert.
Meet Karla, one of the five Queens. She is the Queen of the Scavengers. Her faction is the one that often leaves the Queendom in search of abandoned goods, and trades with other groups if need be. She is the most childish of all the queens, often fawning over things from the past, or playing with toys. Karla often makes references to shows and books from her childhood and the before, but is sometimes deterred by how the young ones have no ideas what she goes on about.
Despite how she may seem to outsiders, she is a very important part of the five queens. She helps out the Tech/fixer faction by getting a hold of tools and parts, keeps the protectors stocked with weapons and ammo. She is also a whiz at numbers and keeping track of stuff. If any of the other queens (or anyone else) wants to know how their stock of anything is doing, Karla is the one to ask. She will often go to Courtnie and tell her that they need to focus on a certain crop that year, or to lay off on something no one likes and isn’t being used up fast enough.
She is also known as the story queen to the young ones. Having a large pool of stories from books, movies, and such to draw from. Though it was noone’s intention, Karla has sort of become a bit of a teacher as the years went on and children were born into their Queendom. Reading, math, History, she loves to talk and pass on knowledge and it has become a part of her role.
Karla is also in a relationship with Berdine the Tech/Fixer Queen. The other Queens are completely okay with that, and it is common knowledge. Though kissing and other ‘intimate’ acts are forbidden during meetings. There was this one time, when the discussion got a little heated, and things got out of hand.
Drawing is my life and I honestly hope to be able to do something with it eventually but for now I just draw in my spare time. I'm a bit of a hermit, but mostly because I'm shy, or busy drawing. I'm easily intimitatied by artist who are younger then me and much better, but I try to improve and not dwell on it TOO much.
