Named the Steel Regent of Cormyr upon the death of her father Azoun IV, Princess Alusair Nacacia Obarskyr now rules the kingdom for her infant nephew, Azoun V.
Once a rebellious tomboy, the hot-tempered, impulsive youngest child of Azoun and Filfaeril won the hearts of commoners for her valiant battles against the Tuigan horde. Accomplished in strategy, hard living, and mastery of horses, Alusair spent 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 hattlemaster- more at ease in raids and skirmishes than in matters of diplomacy.
Alusair hates court life, gossip, and endless revels. 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 in the games of the court.
She aims 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 denies investors from Sembia and Westgate who want to gain firm holds in Cormyr and rebuffs all their attempts to control and influence Cormyrian affairs.
As long as she can pour out her rage in short, savage sword-bouts against the Blades (the young nobles she rode with and trusts), Alusair will be an efficient 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 - makes 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.
