Faith Garrett | Princess of Samoa | 19 | Emilia Clarke | OPEN
Princess Faith has had a lot of pressure put on her to be the perfect princess, and one day, the perfect queen. You see, a few generations ago, some of the older kingdoms - America, France, Great Britain, in particular - began to colonize some of the smaller islands adrift in the lawless country of the high seas. In America, one of the king’s most trusted advisors, Hunter Garrett, was sent to rule over the kingdom’s newest colony, the American Samoa. The disconnect between ruler and people became greater and greater until one woman, Tanya Garrett - Faith’s grandmother - was able to connect with the natives and staged a coup against the American authority. Small battles were waged, because America didn’t care too much about losing the little island, and Samoa became an independent kingdom. Faith has been told time and again how important her leadership is, and how much she reminds people of her grandmother, she is really starting to feel just how much people expect of her. She’s the typical older sister, a bit bossy, very type A, definitely the perfectionist, but she’s also very protective of her little sister, Wendy. She’s been mothering the girl pretty much since she was born. She didn’t start out a perfectionist though; she just started hearing it so often that she became convinced that perfection was required of her, by her parents, by her people, by her boyfriends… it’s started to become a bit much for Faith, and her obsessive-compulsive disorder has really started to get out of control. She focuses in on one thing very easily, starts to pick apart everything wrong with it, and won’t stop until it’s absolutely 100% perfect. It started when she heard the first rumor of being one of the guys’ “perfect woman.” She later found out it was Chris Rufford, and the next time she looked in the mirror, she saw so many things wrong with herself, she was so bothered that she began to change herself. Just a few minor changes here and there - straightening her hair, clearing up her skin, plucking her eyebrows, losing a few pounds… it was nothing, really. She did it all without a word or complaint, because it would make her better than she was before. She’s also incredibly germ-ophobic, because she couldn’t stand to be sick and miss everything. She’d be way too far behind, she protests. She’s hoping that she’ll end up with a boyfriend pretty soon, but she really doesn’t care. So she says. She knows it’ll up her chances at the throne, and she wants to do all she can not just to meet, but to exceed everyone’s expectations for her.
