Year 1829: Danielle was born to Geoffry and Mariana Waterfield. Mariana died during childbirth, so that left Geoffry to take care of his precious little girl. Thankfully, he had help with raising Danielle through his brothers and sisters, all of who had children of their own to keep Danielle company while he was away doing his job.
From the moment that she was born, Danielle seemed to nearly worship the ground that her father walked on. She was a daddy’s girl, and she wanted nothing more than to be just like him. He was a good man that loved his country and his family. He would do anything for both. He assumed that if he was doing good for his country, then he was doing good for his little girl too. It made Danielle extremely sad when her father had to go away, but he always seemed to come back (and she had her cousins to keep her entertained while he was away).
Year 1845: Tragically, when Danielle was 16, Geoffry was killed in the line of duty. She was sent to live with her aunt and uncle as she didn’t have any other family. During that time, she practicing the skills that her father taught her as much as possible, as she wanted nothing more than to follow in her father’s footsteps. She figured it was the best way to honor her father’s memory.
Year 1847: A few years after Danielle was out of school, an old friend of her father’s showed up - Virgil - seemingly to check up on her. They went out for a very harmless walk before they were attacked by apparent thugs. Danielle’s training kicked in, and she used every asset she had to hold the thugs back. Thankfully, there were only four of them. Once they realized that Danielle was more trouble than she was worth, they ran off before Danielle did anymore damage to them.
Virgil immedately recruits her to the knighthood. She was put through a test to see if her skills were good enough to actually be flat out recruited instead of trained. She passed with flying colors much to her delight. She took her vows, and soon began serving her country like her father did before her.
Year 1854: Danielle learns that an old enemy of her fathers, Gunter, is in town and is targeting the royal family. She tells Christopher but he doesn’t take her seriously.
Chestin is abducted and a messenger tells Danielle that he will only be released if she turns herself over to Gunter. Naturally she does so but she is double-crossed and he keeps them both! Chestin is gagged and tied up pretty tightly. Danielle is hanging by the ceiling by some chains. Gunter explains that he didn't expect any less from Gregory's daughter, and is out to extract his revenge (since Gregory is dead) upon Danielle for her father taking his eye and putting him on the run. He tortures her and makes Chestin watch just to be a sick bastard.
Chestin's friends (Tyler, Arcadian, Akuchi, etc) finally find them to rescue the prince. They find Gunter's hideout and basically cause enough of a distraction for Danielle to get a chance to get a hit on Gunter. Chestin manages to grab the keys to get himself free. He frees Danielle and they escape. Chestin checks in to see how Danielle is holding up.
Danielle also tries to comfort Chestin, she uses a children’s class she’s watching over to horse around and divert his attention.
Marlene and Emeline are ambushed on their way back to the Emberlight Tavern by Cult of Asoth assassins. However, Danielle steps in to make the deciding difference. After, Marlene and Danielle find they get along well as Danielle collects the report.
After being friend a few months, Marlene notices Danielle chatting with Chestin and the knight seems fond of the overly stressed prince. After they are done, she talks to Danielle about needing to be careful – Harpies follow the royal family nearly everywhere and they won’t take kind to a “lesser” woman chatting up their object of desire.
Year 1855: Iradessa and Christopher officially go dowager from the throne. Chestin Promathea becomes King of Aether. A major ball is held in honor of this change of the ruler ship. During the event Chestin dances with many women: Danielle (because he needs someone who gets how silly this ‘dance with the ladies’ charade is), Fenda (about how he looks forward to her big play), Audrey (bond and get to know each other).
Year 1857: Marlene and Emeline are out with Akira and Danielle when they are attacked by Ross and Abel – who are after Emeline. When Abel and Akira’s fire go head to head, Abel decides to take him because he’s like the child him and Ross never had! Danielle is left to get an injured Marlene and targeted Emeline out of dodge and tell the others.
Year 1858: Kris hosts a little drinking knight but with an important motive. He tells his friends (Fawkes, Danielle, Danx, Ichiko, Willow, Kero, Nicholas & Alessa) and the Shattered Realm (Cross, Akira, Emeline, Marlene & I’Frit) that he intends to go back to Cardinal Meridian and kill a damned black-blooded zombie – no matter what this time. While many think this is a bad idea, Alessa, Ichiko, Fawkes and Kero agree to go with him.
Year 1859: Danielle is arrested by Marek and brought to Jean for questioning. It has come to their attention, from an anonymous source, that Danielle is fraternizing with the Shattered Realm – just as her father had before her. When asked if this is true, she favors integrity and admits it is since she’s been with Marlene. As a result the investigation is re-opened and she is placed into the dungeon until the truth is found.
A thief broke into Larisa’s shop the night before, she’s devastated of course and Danielle is the knight given the task of looking into her case and trying to find the lost art pieces. Sadly though, most cases like this one go unsolved and Danielle knows that. The worst part is that the portrait of Jasper has been stolen too!
