Here is one of my OCs from a French role playing.
Her name is Tyrielle. She is the 'Connetable' aka General of the Wolves Caste, a caste of soldiers. She is a fierce woman and fighter and takes everything very seriously.
An orphan, she does not know anything about her family or origins. As a result, her duty to the kingdom means everything and goes before her own life and feelings.
The more I am playing her and the more I notice that she is inspired by Lady Oscar de Jarjayes, the Rose of Versailles, although in Tyrielle's case there is no question that she is a woman.
I made a Cosplay costume of that character:
