Chief of the Fanaglian Department of Agriculture, though her position nowadays has more to do with diplomatic relations than agriculture. Childhood friend of Queen Autumn, with whom she was "closer than even a sister," feeling a sort of duty to keep the young queen out of trouble. Often quiet, she is very calm and calculating, possessing an almost encyclopedic mind with regards to foreign nations, their leaders, their economics, and their cultures. She was particularly devastated by the death of Queen Autumn; it was rumored that she and the queen had been long-time lovers.

Early LifeEdit

Before the Unification, her father founded Alans Hemp Products, based out of Cynfel City. She grew up around all aspects of the industry, from the planting to the department store racks. He died shortly before the Great Coup, leaving his company to little Lucy Alans and making her one of the wealthiest women in the kingdom.

Then came the coup and when King DiMarco seized the company for the war effort, she fled to Pisiano and joined Libre Fanaglia. It could be argued that the rebels would have failed, had it not been for her efforts to encourage the local farmers to grow hemp to be used in rigging, sails, uniforms, and airship envelopes, instead of the traditional oranges or corn.

It was there she became close friends with the queen; once they retook the throne, she appointed her to be her agricultural adviser and she sold Alans Hemp to Alonso Tagan of the Fanaglian Central Textiles Company.

Tenure as Chief Agricultural AdviserEdit

She was chosen to head this newly-created position because of her proven experience in the field. As she did in the war, she drew close parallels between agriculture and politics, especially in the fertile lands of Fanaglia. She used her position to force tough negotiations in nearly every industry even remotely related to textiles or agriculture in the Kingdom. After appointing Jacques LaFayette as the Assistant-Chief of the Fanaglian Department of Agriculture, she then proceeded to use her new-found political sledgehammer on the international stage, using "Agricultural Adviser" almost as a cover-up for the amount of power she actually held. Internally, she was sometimes privately regarded as being more powerful than the queen herself.
