It's been a while since I created a new OC hasn't it? Well then, this is Gelatria Blauherz, the Grand Duchess of the region of Snowloft! She is actually special because I adopted her from my friend *MarioBlade64
when he began offering adoptable OCs:

Occupation: Grand Duchess of the region of Snowloft.
History: Gelatria was born to the house of Blauherz, the current reigning house of Snowloft and successor to the archducal House of Lilac. While her parents were kind and reasonable and brought her up to be a good woman, they were not without their enemies, especially in the rivaling House of Rothunder from Southwark. Rothunder ended up attacking Blauherz when Gelatria was ten, with the former's nobles attempting to assassinate her parents. Even though (or perhaps because) the coup failed and Rothunder was publicly shamed, Gelatria lost all respect for the House and even today still resents them.
As for her ability to inflate, it initially came as a curse when she was an unknowing rival for a fellow archduke's affections. The other rival, jealous of her good qualities, found a way to deceive her with a magic ring as what she claimed was a sign of "friendship". However, when Gelatria tried to court the archduke, the ring activated and she found herself in an unfortunate situation. Thus, she lost the chance of marrying him, and she became scared of turning into a balloon and popping. Thus, she sought the great sorceress Shannon Maiara Blythe to get over her fears and control her curse. However, a few years later the rival revealed the ruse to her and even offered to remove the curse; she found that she could no longer be jealous of Gelatria as she was simply too nice as a grand duchess. While Gelatria did forgive her, she declined the offer as by then her training had made her comfortable with inflatability; nevertheless, they soon became actual friends. Now, Gelatria is able to inflate herself freely, and she is planning on making Shannon her official advisor.*Measurements for untransformed state.
