Wilhelmina Adelaide Fischer
age: 19
from: munich, germany
status: daughter to the president of germany
Wilhelmina Fischer is one of the most boring girls you will ever meet - which is why her secrets come as such a shock. On the surface, Wilhelmina goes to school, looks pretty (but not too pretty) at her father's events, and dutifully stays out of the tabloids. However. Wilhelmina is hiding a secret that could crack her fragile little dollhouse forever. Wilhelmina is having a relationship, and it's not the kind that anyone would approve of. Her secret lover is forbidden to her in every way, and yet...something draws them together. Throwing caution to the wind, Wilhelmina ditched her obedient schoolgirl attitude and jumped on her lover's Vespa. She's so plain that you probably don't remember seeing her, but if you think carefully, you have seen them, haven't you? The girl - very ordinary, nothing striking - and the boy: beautiful silky hair. You envy her so. Even though Wilhelmina's not the prettiest girl you've ever seen, she lights up next to him. And a pretty girl and a beautiful boy? That's something you're bound to notice. And, if Wilhelmina's not careful, so will the paparazzi.

Five facts; 

1. Wilhelmina's nickname is Willa, but the only person who calls her that is her father. She refuses to let anyone else call her that, even her boyfriend. 

2. She received a pet peacock for her sixteenth birthday, and it still resides at her home in Germany. It's her favorite pet, and follows her everywhere when she is home.

3. She loves pearls and lace, and all pieces of her wardrobe include a touch of the two lavish materials. 

4. Wilhelmina can play the violin, but gave it up after ten years of private lessons because she was tired of practicing an instrument that got her nowhere.

5. Wilhelmina is supposed to wear glasses, but she finds them unsophisticated and often lets them sit to collect dust on her vanity.

Questions; {in character}

1. Okay tell us about your past, where do you come from?

I was born and raised in Germany, lived there my whole life. My mother was a homemaker, and my father was a politician. Eventually, I wound up in the beautiful Bellevue Palace when my father was elected president. It's such a beautiful place, so different from my old home. His election has changed the family quite a lot, but I don't mind much. My personal assistant, Beatrice, always spends time doing my hair or talking to me when I need. Otherwise, I spend most of my time alone, in the garden or my bedroom, or I'm traveling with my friends. My mother and father always keep a close eye on me, but spend little to no time being social with me.

2. How do you know Marie, or if you don't what are the circumstances around you being invited to the wedding court?

Marie and I met a royal ball for European aristocrats and political leaders. We met mostly through mutual friendships, but she and I were quite close for some period of time during her vacation to Germany last year. She really is a sweet girl and I'm so happy for her. 

3. Can you tell us a few personal strengths and weaknesses?

Well, a few of my strengths would be my ability to keep my mouth shut. I never try to start trouble, it was the way I was raised. Some people find being plain and quiet is curse, but I find it to be a blessing. I am also good at keeping secrets, especially when they're important. Some of my weaknesses? Saying "no" would be one of them. I like to keep people happy, and it's hard to deny anything to anyone.

4. What are you most looking forward to about moving to Versailles and taking part in court?

I'm obviously looking forward to seeing Marie again, but I am most excited about spending time unsupervised by my parents. Germany and France are close, but far away enough for them to stay in their own business, not mine. It also gives me time to shop with my father's lovely plastic cards. 

5. What is one thing the world should know about you?

One thing you should know about me is that there is more than what meets the eye. I'm not just a plain Jane, and I obviously don't have low standards. I seem to be "less" than I truly am.

1. Why did you choose this character?

I chose this character because I love the whole premise of her story, and her character could go so many different routes. She would be interesting to write for. 

2. Can you honestly be active?

I have a job and school, but as the year winds down I really have no other engagemnts. I could be active enough.

3. Why should we choose you for this character?

I can honestly relate to her, and I love the story! I also love Edie Campbell. She's stunning.
