Petranne Balitang (pronounced peht-RAN BAHL-ee-tahng), born in 458 HE[1], was Mequen Balitang's first child with his second wife, Winnamine Balitang. She had a younger brother, Elsren Balitang, and two older half-sisters, Saraiyu and Dovasary.

Biography

Early life

She grew up closely with her younger brother, Elsren, and she had a good relationship with her two older half sisters, Sarai and Dove, who sometimes mothered her. She grew up in luxury in the city of Rajmuat, where she was presumably born. Her family was forced into exile by King Oron, a Rittevon king and her father's first cousin. The family had to give up quite a lot of its money as well as sell many of the slaves due to the demands of King Oron. They moved to Tanair Castle on Lombyn Island, holdings that were part of Duchess Sarugani's dowry.

Tanair

Petranne was always with her brother, Elsren, at Tanair, being around the same age. Aly sometimes looked after her and her brother, but mostly it was the raka servant Boulaj.

Rajmuat

Petranne was presented to the Court of Rajmuat, and to Princess Imajane and Prince Rubinyan, the regents, when they returned. She was styled as Lady Petranne Balitang.

When Elsren Balitang was assassinated during a freak storm while aboard a sailing vessel made for King Dunevon's birthday, Petranne was most likely hit hard by the news as she was very close with him and was raised with him.

After the assassination attempt on her sister Dove's life in Rittevon Square and the kudarung rescued Dove, Petranne was confused about why everyone was kneeling to Dove, saying that people only bow like that to the king. Her mother gently told her that Dove was to be the new king. When Petranne saw that her mother was curtseying to Dove, Petranne followed suit, although her curtsy was not as graceful. Her sister didn't allow her to stay down for long, though, saying that she was not to be that sort of king and she didn't want them to shut her out.

As the Queen's Sister

Because she had only luarin blood she was never considered Dove's heir after her older sister became Queen of the Copper Isles. Instead she held the title of a duchess and her future husband would have Mequen's former lands. Petranne's husband would also inherit the position of being head of the family. She would certainly make a political marriage.[2]
