► Headcanon: Elle vient d’une famille d’aristocrate ruinée: sa relation avec Damas (encore prince à l’époque) est donc mal vue.
Bien que Eyrin ait une très bonne éducation, la plupart des gens du grand-monde l'appelle «la roturière» (même si elle n'a rien d'une simple roturière, et même si elle se montre plus raffinée et plus humble que la plupart des personnes dîtes de haut rang)
Damas obtient le consentement de son père, qui est un homme brave et se rend compte des sentiments profonds de son fils pour Eyrin,
Cependant, un drame frappe le couple royal: Damas et Eyrin comprennent rapidement qu'ils auront du mal à avoir un enfant. En effet, Eyrin n'arrive pas à garder les bébés et fait fausse-couche sur fausse-couche. Elle souffrira beaucoup de cette pathologie, se tournant alors vers la religion (NB: fortement inspiré de la tsarine Alexandra)
Beaucoup dans le grand-monde verront en cette maladie un signe des Précurseurs (Veger dira que les Précurseurs punissent Damas d'avoir épousé une roturière), et beaucoup traiterons (dans son dos) Eyrin «d'incapable» et «d'inutile» puisqu'elle ne peut même pas donner un héritier au trône.
Cette nouvelle terrible pour toute Abriville n’arrange rien à la situation eco-politique chancelante que connaît la ville (les prémices du putsch de Praxis)
Ce n’est que bien plus tard, après presque 20 ans d’attente, qu’Eyrin tombera enceinte et que l'enfant naîtra à terme. 9 mois plus tard, elle met au monde un fils qu’ils appelleront Mar (connu plus tard sous le nom de Jak)
Le peuple accueille avec effervescence ce nouvel héritier. Damas et Eyrin voient en cet enfant un signe des Précurseurs (ce que Veger regrette et ne comprendra jamais)
Le couple royal et la ville oublie un instant le rapprochement des Metal Heads… un oubli fatal pour Damas: seulement quelques mois après, Praxis trahit Damas.

Here is my interpretation of Jak’s Mom.
I called her: Eyrin.
► Headcanon: She comes from a family of ruined aristocrats: her relationship with Damas (who is still the prince at the time) is thus badly seen.
Although Eyrin has a very good education, most people in the great world call her “the commoner” (even if she is not a commoner, and even if she is more refined and humble than most of the people said of high rank)
After a while, Damas obtains the consent of his father, who is a brave man and realizes the deep feelings of his son for Eyrin,
Damas and Eyrin quickly realize that they will have trouble having a child. Indeed, Eyrin does not manage to keep babies and has miscarriage on miscarriage. She will suffer of this pathology, and turning herself to religion (NB: strongly inspired by Tsarina Alexandra)
Many in the great world will see in this disease a sign of the Precursors (Veger will say that the Precursors punish Damas for marrying a commoner), and many will call (in her back) Eyrin “incapable” and “useless” because she can not even give an heir to the throne.
This terrible news for all Haven City does not help the staggering eco-political situation of the city (the premises of the putsch of Praxis)
It was not until much later, after almost 20 years of waiting, that Eyrin will become pregnant and the child will be born in the long term. 9 months later, she gives birth to a son they will call Mar (later known as Jak)
The people welcome this new heir with effervescence. Damas and Eyrin see in this child a sign of the Precursors (which Veger regrets and will never understand)
The royal couple and the city forget for a moment the approach of the Metal Heads… a fatal forgetfulness for Damas: only a few months later, Praxis betrayed Damas.
End of the headcanon
• Here, a overview of one of the dresses she could wear during ceremonies (when she will be Queen)
(lately I’ve been thinking a lot about Trans Girl Ashelin and Crossdressing Prince Damas; Praxis is a tightass and thinks it’s ‘just a phase’ and refuses to acknowledge it, but Damas understands and he buys Ashelin dresses and encourages her to BE HERSELF, and eventually Praxis just has to fucking get used to it because he has a daughter now)
Around the world the celebration most commonly known as a quinceanera is one that marks a transition in a girl’s life as she goes from childhood to womanhood. In Latin America it’s the most important birthday a young woman will ever have. Though the age is always the same (quince anos) how a quinceanera is celebrated depends on the origins and culture of the family.
Here in the U.S., quinceanera is the most common term for the celebration, but that’s not the case in other countries. It goes by many different names, sometimes more than one, including:
Fiesta de Quince in Argentina
Festa de Debutantes, Festa de Quinze Anos or Baile de Debutantes in Brazil
Quince in Ecuador
Fête des Quinze Ans in the French Caribbean
Fête des Quinze Ans in the French Guiana
Fiesta de Quince in Paraguay
Vestidos de Quinceanera
The most important part of the celebration for the guest of honor is vestidos de quinceanera. While different cultures have different quinceanera traditions, one remains the same no matter where the girl’s family is from – the dress.
The quinceanera is all about a young woman who’s turning quince anos, so it’s important that she look her very best. No matter where you go, vestidos de quinceanera are elaborate, show-stopping gowns that are usually fitted up top with intricate, embroidered details, sequins, and rhinestones. The skirt of the dress is very full, sweeping all the way around the quinceanera in a wide circle. When it comes to color, just about any pigment can be worn. In the Dominican Republic, vestidos de quinceanera are typically very brightly colored. While in Ecuador, teenagers usually wear lighter or pastel colors.
Making a Grand Entrance
In nearly every culture that celebrates the quinceanera, the young woman makes a grand entrance at the start of the ceremony, accompanied by an escort. It could be her father, which is the case in countries like Argentina and Ecuador, while in other countries the escort is usually a young man that the quinceanera has chosen. In the Dominican Republic, she is escorted in by a partner of her choice and 14 pairs of guests.
Dancing the Night Away
From formal waltzes to choreographed routines that include dozens of people, dancing is the number one form of entertainment at a quinceanera.
In Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, Cuba, The Dominican Republic, Paraguay, Uraguay, and Mexico, the guest of honor will take part in a waltz. Who she dances with depends on where she’s from. In Argentina, Peru, Paraguay, Uraguay, Ecuador, The Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and Mexico, the waltz is danced with the girl’s father. In Mexico, The Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and Cuba, she also waltzes with a partner of her choice.
Quinceaneras Can Have Their Cake and Eat It Too
Many celebrations include a cake and a quinceanera is no exception. This birthday cake is likely to be one of the best cakes a young woman will ever have; cake that is often better than her wedding cake. The cake cutting ceremony usually happens towards the end of the celebration, after the meal has been served and guests have worked up their appetites with lots of dancing. There is typically a toast along with the cake cutting, which is sometimes made in honor of the quinceanera, or in some cultures, it’s made by the young woman herself.
The traditions may be different, but the reason for the celebration is always the same. At the heart of every quinceanera is a young woman turning quince anos; transitioning from a girl to a young woman.
