Named the Steel Regent of Cormyr upon the death of her father Azoun IV, Princess Alusair Nacacia Obarskyr now finds herself ruling the kingdom for the infant Azoun V.

A rebellious tomboy, the hot-tempered, impulsive youngest child of Azoun and Filfaeril won the hearts of commoners for her valiant fighting against the Tuigan Horde. Accomplished in battle, strategy, hard living, and mastery of horses, Alusair has spent most of her life fighting and riding the Stonelands with other young noble-born knights, who admiringly dubbed her "the Steel Princess" for her battle-prowess and spirit. She is Cormyr’s best battlemaster though better in raids and skirmishes than in matters of diplomacy.

Alusair hates court life, gossip, endless revels, and diplomacy. Her anger at her role makes her precise, clear, and cold in diplomatic dealings, but the wise advice of Caladnei and Filfaeril, coupled with her own battlefield experience, means that she misses very few nuances and consequences and usually does the right thing.

Her primary aim is to rebuild Cormyr’s morale and military strength by reclaiming and resettling all lost territory, replanting crops and rebuilding steads. At the same time she intends to deny investors from Sembia and Westgate who want to gain firm holds in Cormyr and rebuff all their attempts to control and influence Cormyrian affairs.

As long as she can pour out her rage in short, savage sword-bouts (with healing clergy standing by) against "the Blades" (the young nobles she rode with, and trusts), Alusair will be a good Regent, and an increasingly contented one. She's good at ruling, and her father's death -- a fate he embraced, she believes, because he would not flee his duty -- has made her determined to preserve the realm for the next Azoun. She'll avoid being goaded by clever-tongued envoys into doing anything that's not best for Cormyr.

Alusair has ash-blonde hair, black eyebrows, and oak-brown eyes in a face that's just acquiring its first, tiny crows-feet wrinkles. In battle she wears mithral full plate, a gift of the dwarves.
