Collette was unpredictable and headstrong from her early childhood. There were whisperes even among servants, that this child is the worst they‘ve ever seen. This small and pale baby could scream two or more weeks and nobody can do anything to calm her down. Sometimes she didn‘t talk or smile more than three days and nobody could get a word from her throat.

However, girl grew apace and with each day she became more and more talkative. She was obsessive shadow of her parents, brothers, sisters and even servants, guards or commoners with hundreds of questions. Favourite game for her was really strange. However, it improved her knowledge and stealth abilities. Collette called this game „Little monkey“. The main rule was to find an interesting victim and follow him or her all day trying to imitate the creature. At first parents wanted to forbid this foolish mike, but her tutor saw how fast Collette learn things from her victims and even encouraged the girl to play it.

Collette was very close to her old tutor. He was the only man for whom Collette obeyed. Actually, the girl was very active and loved to spend whole day outside. For this reason she has a strong body and looks sporty. Also, her reaction is very good. People were whispering, that she could catch an arrow with her hand or she could outrun it. So, just her old tutor knew how to stop this little wind for a few hours in the library. Just because of his patience the young girl finally found a beauty of written word. For this reason Collette spends rainy days in the library reading a huge old books about history and philosophy. The old tutor even taught a girl count and easily spot forged documents. People say, that this old tutor was the best in perception in the whole kingdom. So, he gave his knowledge for his favourite apprentice and a friend. The most interesting talent, which was found by the same tutor, was the girls‘ ability to write an amazing stories. At first, she just created thousands of spurious stories about her adventures ouside. The tutor was the one, who learned Collette to write it on the paper. Now she spends more than a few hours writing something in her room. However, still nobody read it.


There is a tradition in the Lohstren family which helped the young girl to find her real passion. Before a girl is considered a woman, she must journey into the wilds of the March to capture a foal from the wild horse herds that still run about the alpines. Than time came Collette bravely and with a lot of joy in her eyes took this task. She was just 14 years old, but already quick enough to race with wild horses. She took half day before came back with a black male horse. From that day she became self-confident and even arrogant. She was so proud! The most interesting part is that she caught the horse very similar to herself. It grew up into a strong and as fast as mind stallion. The young girl called it Arrow and it was her new best friend.

She was born to ride. Race with a wind became her new favourite game. However, the young woman felt that something is not right. She wanted something more, something more interesting and more dangerous. She is temperamental and easily becomes angry. That is why, than she started to demand to be taken into the hunting, nobody said “No” to her. This was the day she first time used a bow to kill a moving target, while riding a horse. It was straight to the right point. The girl felt really good. Somehow, she knew, that this is her thing. She became obsessive about it. From that day she started to train her archery abilities and she got more and more opportunities to go on hunting. This hobby trained her in tracking, stealth and horsemanship abilities, but what is the most important, Collette learned how to survive. One day, than she was hunting, Arrow was frightened and started to run. She could not to control it. Than the horse finally stopped, Collette understood that she is lost. Nobody found her whole day. However, she found home after a long night alone in the woods.

Maybe because she is a little bit arrogant, maybe because she likes to be natty, the girl has totally different personality. Between all the activities she finds time to the needlework. She does not trust tailors and likes to embroider her gowns herself. She knows, that she has talent for it and loves to show it. Also, as all the people, she likes feasts, because then she can show her spruce dresses and meet new people. But most she likes dancing.

On my own
Pretending he's beside me.
All alone
I walk with him till morning.
Without him
I feel his arms around me
And when I lose my way, I close my eyes
And he has found me.

In the rain the pavement shines like silver.
All the lights are misty in the river.
In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me
Forever and forever.

I love him
But when the night is over
He is gone.
Ther river's just a river.
Without him
The world around me changes.
The trees are bare and everywhere
The streets are full of strangers.

(Les Miserables - On my own.)
