Motto: "Sadness is punishment for foolish deeds."
Quotes: "Yes. Open your heart up to the cold. Engulf yourself in the cold water that is despair and become numb. Numbness is true salvation, you see. If you no longer feel, you no longer need to get hurt. Surrender to Winter, child, and you shall never know pain again."
"The Summer Court marches down blood-paved roads, zealously waving banners of ancient meaning they're too drunk on bloodlust to understand anymore. The Spring Court immerses themselves in pleasures both worldly and otherworldly with a foolish lack of caution and no sense of self-awareness. The Autumn Court, perhaps the most admirable, delves in their old books of eldritch and arcane secrets, shooting hellfire from their great, stone castles. They are all fools, really. The Winter Court is logic. It's survival of the fittest. Only those properly prepared can survive the cold."
"Submit to the frost and the cold. Submit to the darkness and submit to death. Your foolish actions have led you to a point of no return, mortal. And now Winter shall take you with no remorse."
Theme: Theme to Susparia
Occupations: Queen of the Winter Court, Advisor to Queen Mab
Origin: Long ago, ice had covered all the land. The sun was not seen for a long time, and due to this many creatures died, except for those most fit for the first harsh winter. Many deaths had happened, happiness was blotted out like the sun. Instead of enjoying life, creatures focused on simply surviving the cruel environment. It is possible that this was how Ava was born. It's unknown if she was actually born this way. She doesn't seem to be as acutely delusional as other fae, so she may actually know of her origins. Whether she does or she doesn't, she isn't telling anybody.
