⒈ Describe the character's height and build. Is she heavyset, thin, short, rangy?
Romana stands at 5'2, and has a fairly average build- Not super thin, but not super curvy. She exercises a lot to stay in a reasonable figure, and as such she has very toned ass and set of legs. She's about an Australian B cup in bust size, and this never really changes even if she puts on weight, the excess instead heading straight to her hips.
⒉ How old is she?
Physically, Romana looks like a woman in her early twenties, around 22 or 23. In actuality she's quite old, around 20 centuries. I place her creation as having occured when Roman influence over took Greecio in Southern Italy, which occurred around 282 BC. While she has no offical set age, her 'birthday' is March 17, the date when Italy was unified.  
⒊ Describe her posture. Does she carry himself well or does she slouch?
She carries herself well and with a sense of purpose. She does this instinctively, finding that standing up straight gives her an air of power, and with this height she finds she needs it. Not to mention she had enough lessons in being a proper lady from both Spain and Austria.
⒋ How is her health? Is she fit or out of shape? Any illnesses or conditions? Any physical disabilities?
Fit! Like I said, she does exercise regularly, to keep in shape and to keep off weight. This means she's quite fit and has a lot of energy to get through each busy day. Occassionaly she needs reading glasses when doing paperwork, due to her age, though this is usually only when she's tired and the lighting is poor. (Her glasses are black and Gucci, like these.)
⒌ How does she move? Is she clumsy, graceful, tense, fluid?
Graceful, and sort of tense. She walks quickly, as if she's always in a hurry, and this makes her a bitch to keep up with. And as she's always in ridiculously high heels. When she's under attack, be it violence or just a person threatening, she's surprisingly quick and agile, even in those shoes.

⒍ How attractive is this character physically? How does she perceive himself in the mirror?
In the mirror, Romana rates herself as average, if not plain. She compares herself to her sister to a point that she's blind to her own attractiveness, and will refuse to see it any other way. Venezia's slightly taller, has a bigger bust size, doesn't have the scars Romana does, doesn't need to fight to stay slim and in general gets all the attention. Romana just doesn't see that it's Venezia's cheerful and friendly personality that makes her more likeable, not her looks. If someone tries to tell her otherwise she'll scoff and assume they just want something from her.

In reality though, she's at least a high 8 or low 9 when she doesn't smile, and a definite 9 when she does. She's slender with the right amount of curves, even though her bust size is small. Toned legs and a nice ass are definetly two of her best features, as is her hair. She also has a very good sense of dress, and even as she dresses relatively modestly and covers her scarring in most outfits, she also draws attention to he good features. Overall she's definetly the type that would get at least a second glance, if not a wolf whistle.

Oh and apparently being tiny and prone to blushing is cute :|
⒎ Describe her complexion. Dark, light, clear, scarred?
Romana has a very light tan all year round, no where near Spain's, but definetly a tad darker than Venezia. When she spends more time out in the sun it deeps to a more olive tone, naturally. She has no freckles though there is a few small moles scattered on her body, but overall she has a clear complexion. There a few small faded scars from sword cuts or bullet wounds, but the ones that were inflicted on her human body have faded. The only really noticable scarring is the one from the Bombing of Naples, as it was actually inflicted on the land. The scarring goes from her left side, from hipbone to just under her breast, a slight bit reaching to her back. It's also on her upper left arm, and looks like a typical burn scar that's faded to a dull pink, several shades different to her normal skin tone.

⒏ Describe her hair: color, texture, style.
It's a chocolate brown, very thick with very loose curls that reaches about her shoulder blades. She wears it out most days, with a headband as well, and has a side fringe that sweeps to the right. When she's in a... 'sensative' state, she'll hide her curl under the headband to protect herself from added stimuli, and when she's in a very businessy mood, she'll wear her hair in a loose bun at the nape of her neck, or in a high ponytail.

Before 1942,specifically before the German Invasion of Italy, her hair reached at least her hips. In an effort to fight back and protect her sister she was forced to crossdress, and this meant she had to cut her hair. She's misses it quite a lot, and will often avoid talking about it, as she feels it was one of her best features.
⒐ What color are her eyes?
Olive green, though they look greener in some lights, and browner in others.

⒑ Does the character have any other noteworthy features?
She has a hair curl that's on the top of her head, slightly towards the right. It stands up in one strand, in a very loose curl, unless she wears a headband to flatten it. There's also her scar from the Bombing of Naples.

⒒ What are her chief tension centers?
Her calves, from constantly wearing 3 to 4 inch heels, as well as her back and shoulders at times, when she's under stress. In certain weathers her scarring will tend to ache, as well as when she over uses her left arm or does something that pulls the skin.

⒓ What is the character's wardrobe like? Casual, dressy, utilitarian? Bright colors, pastels, neutrals? Is it varied, or does she have six of the same suit?
It's all designer labels, and Italian designers to be precise. Over all there's a very modest sense to most of her outfits, with blouses covering her down to near her elbows and, skirts to her knees. Even in her casual clothes there's a definite sense of style- she wouldn't be caught in baggy, ripped jeans for example. They'd be well fitting, hemmed so they won't drag and expensive. All her outfits will be worn with some version of heels, be they pointed stilletos or wedged. Anything that will give her a few more inches of height.

Colourwise, she tends to prefer darker shades of colour for her formal colours, like a burgandy or navy blue. For casuals it will generally be pastels, paired with white accesseries, and for business she'll move toward blacks and whites, with maybe just a dash of colour in the form of an accessory, depending on the situation.

The only outfit that breaks her knee length and no clevage rule is her usual military dress. It's much shorter, and with a neckline that clearly shows off her cleavage (which, by the way, she pads to get.) This is all just to try and distract and opponent with her appearence, in the hope that those few seconds will mean that she'll get a shot in first.
⒔ Do her clothes fit well? Does she seem comfortable in them?
Her clothes aren't clingy, but they fit well. If it's an outfit that covers her scarring, and usually goes down to at least her knees she'll be quite comfortable in the. If it's too clingy, or short, or shows her clevage too much she'll be obviously uncomfortable, as she tends to find and pick out faults in herself. Overall everything is neat and tailored to fit well.

⒕ Does she dress the same on the job as she does in his free time? If not, what are the differences?
Nope. Her casual clothing is much more relaxed, and even a little bit looser. When she's in meetings, clothing is a lot more formal, simply so she can get across the image of being powerful, despite her gender and height. She's had to deal with a few sexist pricks okay.

⒖ You knew it was coming: Boxers, briefs or commando?
Panties, generally in a more 'sexy' style than one would assume. Lace and silk feature a lot.

Prussia. She thought the woman was a man, what with her short hair, her act of being a knight. She's really quite embarrassed of it, and if asked, she'll deny it and maybe suggest that Belgium was her first crush. Which is only a half lie, he was her first male crush.

None biologically, though there's a few nations out there that she'll treat like her children, mostly other ex colonies of Spain, specifically Argentina. She'd love to have children, but as a nation, it's not going to happen. Even if she found a way to get pregnant, it's a delicate thing, and the slightest shift in her country could loose the baby.

Her sexual orientation is purely heterosexual, but she is biromantic. Meaning while she's only sexually attracted to men, she is okay with having romantic, non sexual (or at least not beyond kissing and cuddling) relationships, or would be if someone explained sexuality vs romantic interests

⒗ How does she feel about sex? How important is it to her?
Very important! She's still a virgin, because when she was younger the idea of sex before marriage being a sin was drilled into her. So she waited, and waited. Now days, she realises that she will most likely never be married, but she's still waiting. She wants to save it for someone she really cares about and finding that person... well. It won't be easy.

⒈ Do you know your character's astrological (zodiac of choice) sign? How well does she fit type?
