Queen Emira Maresh was the Queen of Arnes, wife of Maxim Maresh, and mother of Rhy and Kell.

Physical descriptionEdit


Emira was a very anxious person, who was dictated by her fear of the world around her breaking. Although she loved both of her sons very much, she was constantly terrified of them getting hurt or worse, leading to her making poor decisions, especially regarding Kell.

Despite this, she was known to be a gentle and calming presence, especially to her husband Maxim.
