Handsomest Woman Tournament
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Contestant info:
Applejack: "mlp writers are allergic to putting girls in suits but she has expressed many times that feminine presentation isn't for her and is always potrayed as masc she's the butchiest horse ever and i love her"
Lady Maria of the Astral Clocktower: "Lady Maria is a hunter of beasts, and has committed atrocities, but she feels bad about them. She's essentially a descendent of the game's version of vampires. She has the whole tortured badass thing going for her, and tries to ""free"" the player character from the hell she is in by killing them (this would wake them up from a nightmare realm).
Her boss cutscene includes her gripping the player character's arm before gently releasing them as she scolds them: "A corpse... should be left well alone. Oh, I know very well. How the secrets beckon so sweetly. Only an honest death will cure you now. Liberate you from your wild curiosity."
She wears a suit, cravat and cape, has an attractive voice, and can beat your ass. She dual wields swords, and if she parries or staggers you there's a chance she will hug you before ripping your chest open. Which is pretty polite!"

Some Headcanons For Queen Annalise
Tumblr media
I can鈥檛 just sit here and complain about the lack of Annalise content without doing something about it myself, so here are some ideas for Annalise鈥檚 character, pulled straight from the depths of my Tumblr drafts and cleaned up at last.
Character and Family Origins
Tumblr media
Annalise was a very different individual as a child. I based it off of the cut content version of her character in Bloodborne, where she was voiced by the Doll鈥檚 actress and was portrayed as a very frightened, docile girl. Certainly not the cynical and poised queen we meet in-game. Anna was a very sweet, whimsical, and idealistic child, even a little ways until her teens. She smiled often and romanticized her royal position with the day-dreaming eyes of youth. Her people adored her lilting, light-hearted and laughter-fueled demeanor. She was the delight and heart of her kingdom.
Annalise as an adult was a different story. The circumstances and events of her life, as well as her mother鈥檚 vile influence turned her into a very cunning, merciless, and bitter woman around the time she was crowned queen. The Healing Church only knew this version of Annalise and condemned her as an evil witch-queen of blood. In truth, this outer semblance of cruelty and ruthlessness was Annalise鈥檚 armor. She used her reputation and mythology to frighten and manipulate her enemies and political allies, as was necessary to prevent any sign of weakness within her kingdom from being unveiled. Whether this dangerous queen was truly so callous and cold behind closed doors was a mystery to most. It鈥檚 safe to assume that her inner, vulnerable child was mostly dead, but perhaps to some she dared reveal it.
Tumblr media
Annalise had one younger brother who became her captain of the royal guard for many years. The two were quite close, but as Annalise grew older, their relationship became somewhat complicated as the brother began to realize the ways in which his sister used him as a pawn in her game, but with the intent of compensating for it with lavish treatment and public displays of honor for his name. He was less her equal as an adult, and she treated him as such out of necessity. He rarely expressed any resistance, but his secret mix of resentment and admiration for his sister prevented them from remaining as close as they were in childhood.
Annalise鈥檚 parents were polar opposites. Her mother was the former queen of Cainhurst, and her father was the Queen鈥檚 Consort. There was no love between these two people, but Annalise鈥檚 father adored the only daughter born of his spiteful marriage. He was a foolish, naive man with nothing more than a desire to enjoy his life and dote on Annalise, who cherished him in return. However, Annalise mother was a narcissistic and abusive figure who wanted her daughter to become a weapon for the kingdom and to carry on the immortal line of Vilebloods. This woman detested her consort and the way he treated Annalise, as she believed it was 鈥渨eakening鈥 the girl and ruining her chance at becoming a competent queen. The conflict ended when Annalise鈥檚 father was sent into exile by the queen for a sin he did not commit. He never returned, and presumably because of a premature death. It was after this event that Annalise began to change for the worse.
Tumblr media
From the moment she was born, Annalise had been arranged to marry the heir of the royal family executioners, Logarius. The desire was for Annalise to wed someone with strong and pure Pthumerian heritage in order to further strengthen the Cainhurst bloodline. Logarius himself had been a child when the decision was made, but it was only a few years later that he betrayed Cainhurst in his teens and began to plot against them. Afterwards, when Annalise became of age, many suitors and potential matches for the soon-to-be queen were lined up and offered for marriage. Annalise rejected many of them for a long while, as she refused to fall into a loveless marriage as her mother had, but eventually she did take a maternal cousin as her consort for the sake of security. It was a marriage meant for the public eye. Her plan was to have the Child of Blood, but to present it as a natural birth to her kingdom, so that her enemies would not know she had succeeded in bearing a god鈥檚 child, which would elevate the chances of an attack from the Church. Yet the long-term rivalry between Annalise and Logarius, her unabashed hatred for him and his twisted obsession with her, was what sent this plan awry and led to deadly conflict.
On the subject of birth, Annalise herself initially detested the idea, and did not want children. The expectation was forced on her from a young age, and after many failed attempts to provide an immortal heir by her mother鈥檚 demand, she began to resist the 鈥渄uty鈥 all together. The former queen even had a portrait made of a red-clad, golden-haired child in her arms鈥攖he ideal Vileblood heir and daughter of Annalise. This obsession sickened Annalise and nearly drove her mad. However, after many years of consuming blood-dregs and working towards bearing the god-child of blood, and after losing that very child in the Cainhurst massacre, Annalise secretly wished to have at least one natural-born heir that she could truly love and care for without the intent of weaponizing or using to further the kingdom鈥檚 bloodline. A child brought about by genuine love, not gods or consorts. Very few knew of this longing desire in the girl that was only ever treated as a producer of immortal heirs for her people, and Annalise herself often wondered if the desire itself stemmed from spite for this image and her mother鈥檚 expectations.
Tumblr media
Overall, it was thought that only one of Annalise鈥檚 children survived, and the rumor was that it was the notorious golden-haired woman of the evening, Arianna, who stood out among Yharnamites thanks to her strange appearance and garb. Her origin and date of birth were shrouded in mystery, and it was never truly known if she was indeed the daughter of the lost Vileblood queen. It was well-known, however, that Annalise鈥檚 other children, including her first child of blood, did not survive. The second blood-child that she seemingly wishes for in-game is also a mystery, and none will ever know if she succeeded in bearing it.
Annalise as a queen was respected and adored by her subjects, even if greatly feared as well. Many knew her to be dangerously intelligent and unpredictable, willing to mercilessly snuff out any sign of rebellion within her kingdom, but also generous and benevolent towards her people. The Church only ever saw a blood-lusting siren that fed her fawning worshippers with the lifeblood of innocents and forced them to bring her dregs, but this was only the mythos Annalise had allowed to blossom and spread. Her philosophy was to embrace every weakness and flaw so that none could use them against her or manipulate her. There could be no indecisiveness or wavering, no hesitance or uncertainty. Annalise trusted very few individuals, even those closest to her, and considered herself alone in the world. She had to be an isolated, feared, and demonic figure in order to protect herself and her people. It was the only way they could survive. It was the way of the Vilebloods, and had they remained loyal to each other, their grievous fate may have been prevented.
Personality and Random Headcanons
Tumblr media
Annalise adored roses as a child, and tended to her courtyard gardens full of the flowers as she was growing up. Her father spent much of his time in these gardens, and taught his daughter how to cultivate them. However, when she was older, she abandoned her love of roses, and sought to surround herself with Higan Flowers (Red Spider Lilies/Corpse Flowers), or as they are known in the world of Bloodborne, Coldblood Blooms. The deathly, blood-soaked blossoms were more suited to her grim life, and the looming threat of massacre. The memories associated with roses were too bittersweet and innocent.
Tumblr media
Annalise and Lady Maria were good friends in their youth, as well as Maria鈥檚 younger brother鈥攖he future Crow of Cainhurst. They all loved to spend time in the old library, stargaze, and explore the courtyard gardens together. These three were some of the few children that enjoyed brief peace in their early lives before everything changed. Annalise was bitter for many years over Maria鈥檚 departure, wishing that the latter had not cut off her people entirely.
Annalise was taught piano, and could play quite elaborate pieces when she wished. She found the instrument to be a therapeutic escape from her daily trials, and was often found pouring much of her energy into composition.
Annalise wore a necklace with a glistening red heart enclosed with silver and diamonds for many years that many believed to be a precious ruby that she would promise to her chosen consort. In truth, the heart was nothing more than a concealed bit of resin that had been given to her by a childhood companion, and merely symbolized Annalise鈥檚 longing for her own lost innocence. She wore it as a reminder of the true heart she had buried. Few knew of this clandestine meaning.
Tumblr media
Annalise was briefly taught how to wield a rapier and how to handle an Evelyn pistol by her aunt. She could engage in fencing with relative ease, and was fond of the pistol, but she often doubted her own skill and tended to avoid any sort of serious combat. She instead preferred to command her knights and guards with strategic intent. Yet if one were to challenge her directly, they may have been surprised by her hidden abilities.
Annalise had a very private nickname (Anya) that had been used primarily by her father. She was fond of the name, but did not tend to share it with anyone unless they were quite close to her. The sentiment attached to it was too prevalent.
Annalise loved to hold grand masquerades and dances for her people, particularly within the Cainhurst moon-dome, an old ballroom within the castle that had a retractable roof for stargazing. On full moon nights, Annalise would gather the nobles for festivities and open up the ceiling to allow the moonlight to flood in. She was fond of waltzing and drinking with her people during these nights.
Annalise loved chess and spent many hours playing against her brother or even her knights. She found that is was a way to sharpen her strategical thought-process and hone her wits.
As queen, Annalise used archaic speech and the royal 鈥渨e鈥 to adress her subjects. It was a way of distancing herself from them, holding to tradition, and keeping her outward appearance as a cold, enigmatic authority figure from another time. In private, she abandoned this practice.
Annalise鈥檚 favorite color was blue, which she had worn throughout most of her childhood. She felt that it symbolized youth and innocence. As an adult, she rarely wore the color and preferred red, grey, black, and gold, all of which felt stronger and more powerful.
Annalise loved nightingales, ravens, and finches. She fostered and cared for many within the security of her gardens. She often enjoyed training her ravens to deliver messages in the manner of the old kingdom.
Tumblr media
Annalise hated winter in Cainhurst, even though it was the dominant season. She grew used to it, but the gentle peace of spring and its rainswept nights was when she was happiest.
That鈥檚 all for now, and though I do have more ideas, I figured this was a decent summary of how I see this character. She is alluring for me, because I sense that she is very morally grey and complex, but with a gentler side. Yes, she can be cruel, merciless, unhinged, even slightly mad, but she was just a child once, and a kind one at that. She did what she had to in order to survive. I love her for it 馃
