The Dune Chronicles- okayophelia’s Archetype Series

Hwi Noree- Fairy Tale Princess

Raised in secret, sharing the blood of a devil to be the perfect temptation for a god. She could give benediction for a lifetime of cruelty with a single word and soothe the worried brow of a soldier with a brush of her lips. 

But hers is not the usual fairy tale because her Prince is a god and her ending will not be a happy one. 

She did have that dark skin, though, the oval face with its regular features. Placid brown eyes stared back at Leto. And where Malky’s hair had been gray, hers was a luminous brown. Hwi Noree radiated
an inner peace which Leto sensed spreading its influence around her as she approached. She stopped ten paces away, below him. There was a classical balance about her, something not accidental.

Hwi Noree/ Leto II- Beauty and the Beast

Long ago I should have seen
All the things I could have been
Careless and unthinking, I moved onward

No point anymore, if I can’t love her

We had something few experience. We were joined in our strengths rather than in our weaknesses.

Hwi Noree/ Leto II- Merlin & Vivienne 

“This is beyond understanding.“ said the king. "You are the wisest man alive. You know what is preparing. Why do you not make a plan to save yourself?”
And Merlin said quietly, “Because I am wise. In the combat between wisdom and feeling, wisdom never wins.” 

"Hwi helps me …”
“And look what it got you!”
“Yes, and pray that you get the same!”

“Its not like last time, Hwi. You can be with him now if you wish.”

“Do you think I had so little choice then? I’m quite happy with what I chose before, beloved.”
