★ - Leonelle used the Orlesian biases towards fashion in order to start cultivating power of her own accord as soon as she was engaged to Gaspard. Being engaged to him meant she had visibility, accompanying him on his arm to various functions, galas, balls. She used that visibility to draw attention to herself beyond being his fiancee by endearing the Orlesian noblewomen to her through the use of fashion. Just as Vivienne says to the Inquisitor, fashion is a weapon in their arsenal and it should not be underused.
★ - she is pretty insecure when it comes to speaking in both Common and Nevarran. She grew up speaking Orlesian as her first tongue, but never had much of a head when it came to languages. However, she is proficient enough to deal with Nevarran, Fereldan and Marcher ambassadors further down the line.
★ - kinda along the lines of ~education~ she was never really a good student. She didn’t put much effort into things beyond her music and dance lessons, much to her tutors’ and family’s frustrations. Her work ethic changed during her training as a bard, but a 16 year old Leonelle didn’t want to learn about history or rhetoric.
