Myfanwy is the only daughter of Oberon and Cymnea.
She holds the titles of Princess of Amber, and Regent of the Cybellelands in the Abyss.
On her marriage to Jarngrimr, she became the Queen Who Rules in Asgard. Also in Asgard, she holds Freya’s mantle.
Myfanwy is, as someone pleasantly put it, ‘as old as dirt’. She grew up with her elder brothers Finndo, Osric, Lucien, Mattias and Benedict spending little time with her half sister Elizabeth.
Since the deaths of her eldest brothers she has always been closest to Benedict. Myfanwy was retained by Oberon after his divorce from Cymnea and used as marriage bait for his machinations around Creation. However, as she could not be married without the combined agreement of Oberon, Cymnea and Swayville she remained singularly unattached. She flitted between Thelbane and her Mother’s Abyss Kingdom and occasionally, as ordered, back into Amber. She learned fighting and Strategy from Finndo and later Benedict as well as from both the Hendrakes and the Hellmaids. She fought in numerous campaigns across Solstice and commanded her Mother’s armies across the Queendoms.
Her relationship with her Stepmothers, as they came and went was poor until the time of Paulette and she was out of Amber far more than within. That with her Father, was varied. She was accused of having poisoned Faiella and made no secret of her loathing of Rilga. She was responsible for the killing of any of House Karm that remained in Thelbane. She worked hard at various times to protect Amber and was a member of the Cabal along with Obie, Gaius and Isaac to protect citizens during the burning times and later took the War into Eastern and Northern Amber earning a reputation for ruthlessness as well as being a vicious opponent and formidable strategist. That War was said to have damaged her significantly.
She was again recalled to the Abyss to act as Regent for her Mother and learned something other than Warfare. She fought for Amber during the subsequent Wars and worked directly under the Orders of Oberon and Benedict against Eric, Caine and Julian and for Amber during the Black Road incursion and the Battle of the Abyss. Any moves made against her for her actions during Wartime were blocked by Benedict and she was included in the pardon issued by King Bleys.
She is often seen in the company of a middling sized, incredibly ugly brown dog called Mauser.
Appearance: She is tall – around 6’ with large, bright Green eyes and long hair of the palest blonde and a fair complexion.
Colours: Her favoured colours are red and gold.
She is extraordinarily graceful in her movements. She flows and this is evident in her fighting and dancing. She has developed a faintly amused attitude towards her numerous younger brothers and sisters and their offspring. Was known for her dislike of Darlene but there seems to be a truce in place. Myfanwy was instrumental in uncovering Paulette’s murder and clearing Darlene’s name. She dislikes Dara – for reasons that are not entirely clear. There are huge lapses in her memories. Large enough to drive a carriage through.
Myfanwy is known to have a penchant for jewelry, specifically emeralds and diamonds – preferably green diamonds.
She retains her chambers in the old wing of Amber Castles. Her main residence in Amber is Dunluce Castle on the Southern Coast. Most of her time is now spent in Asgard in her roles as wife and Queen. She is also greatly engaged in activities relating to bearing of Freya’s Mantle. She takes this role very seriously and is very busy within it.
She is known to be very much in love with Grimr.
