The Sand and the Stranger - "Strong Wife"
Characters from a project I've had in the works for some time, about an insular desert princes and his three wives, who can't seem to produce and heir. Spoiler: It's because they're all queer as hell. Basically I wanted to make a romantic VN that was about investigating the relationships between other characters, than being an outright dating sim. It's sort of my recurirng ILUJam project, so I hope to work on it again!
Anyway, "Strong Wife" was pursuing a warrior's calling until her parents implored her to marry in order to save their finances. Taj requested her hand to assuage their fears, but her true role is as his confident and bodyguard. She adores the prince, but as a devoted retainer rather than a wife; secretly she's probably in love with "Shywife". She's courageous, abrasive, protective, and basically humourless. I am having a huge amount of trouble with her name, so please feel free to send suggestions.
