My History[]

Madame Adele Regine LeChat, nee Dubois.  She was born the only daughter to a French Scottish immigrant and his French wife.  Youngest of 4 she was a child when they left Charleston due to the rumblings of war and moved to New Orleans.  Sadly her brothers stayed and fought for the South.  Raised bilingual she began teaching the children of wealthy merchants at a young age and was soon hired by a Texan cattle baron to educate his daughters in the finer things.  Unlike most governesses she was well paid for her work and even travelled abroad with the girls until they became of age.  The family rewarded her long service with a generous bonus and a trip abroad to expand her knowledge.

On that trip the airship was attacked by pirates and she was taken hostage.  Rescued by a debonair Italian from the borders near France she falls head over heels and quickly marries him.  The marriage is short lived alas and she is soon widowed due to his impetuous nature.  However she is left with a large inheritance to console her and she travels throughout the world for a while learning about other cultures.  She meets up with a stubborn Prussian Field Marshall but his pride after being dismissed from the ranks due to his severe war injuries keeps them apart. 

She moves to Cowford after reuniting with distant relatives in the Florida territory and settles at the beaches near the town.  She finds an older home once owned by a sea captain with wide porches facing the ocean where she watches both ships and airships alike.  She occasionally takes on students (mostly the children of pirates and mercenaries) hoping to better themselves.  She has also convinced Field Marshall Beanz to come reside with her so she can nurse him back to health.  She also enjoys occasional adventures with her pirate friends  and other mercenaries who still come to visit.  Recently she has opened a boarding house for young ladies that have come to the beaches near Cowford to *ahem* "take the sea breezes."  The boarding house is currently called "Auntie Mary's Boarding House"
