"If you were to characterize us when we were girls," she commented, "you would say that Elega was bold; Torrent, timid; Myste dreamy."

In addition to that, I would add that Elega can be ambitious and Myste idealistic and courageous.
Which of the three princesses can you identify with (if any)? Which of the three do you like the most?

Myste is definately my favorite. I love her simple morals in such a convoluted world.

I had to go with Myste too, her compasion and vision are starteling. Elega's journey is remarkable, especially when you consider how daddy sets her up...

I always felt as if I never got as much as a feel for Torrent as I did the other two sisters. Confused
I always admired Myste's convictions -- when she saw something as her duty she truly felt that she had to follow it...straightforward morals, as Birdy said, in a place where most did not follow them. Smile

Myste is passionate, tolerant and honest AND she is one of the few helpful souls Terisa meets in Orison. So for me she's the most likeable of the princesses.

On the other hand, there is a part in me that's very much like Elega (I can be very critical and cynic). So, in a way, I sometimes shared her view of Myste as naive and 'too romantic'.
Elega is very admirable and impressive. A strong and intelligent woman who takes things into her hands. You don't like her, you want to be like her.

Torrent...has a beautiful name. Wink

Just her name. Wink

Though I like the part where she goes back for the knife.

I like Myste the most too... and despise Elega... she is, in my opinion, a b*tch. Very Happy

Just a couple of quotes I like about the girls:

Quote:
Myste's eyes darkened. All at once, the distance in them seemed poignant to Elega. Myste was the youngest of the King's daughters, and in some ways the least respected: alone in her romantic dreams, her strange notion that there were no real limits to the lives of ordinary men and women. Only her father had ever listened to her with anything except kind contempt or outright mockery - and now his kingdom was in ruins, and the fault for it was his alone.


And Elega's thoughts on Prince Kragen:
Quote:
That was why she loved him. Despite the fact that she was the daughter of his enemy - that she had betrayed her own father and might thereforebe capable of betraying anyone - that she had helped another of the King's daughters escape - Prince Kragen went into her tent and heard her story.

I voted for Myste .. she was the one I admired most .. I felt sorry for all the girls though ..

as I have always held .. Joyce's ruse did not serve the purposes he intended .. and I stand in awe that he could ever have really thought it would
