'Avril L'Épée is the daughter of d'Artagnan, one of the four protagonists of The Three Musketeers. She is a Royal, and is perfectly fine with her destiny. Avril, personality wise, is described to be kind, a little naive, but from time to time has angry outbursts.
She was created by TheHatter.
Avril is shown to be kind and thoughtful. Though she predominantly has these traits, she tends to have short, angry outbursts, which are difficult to calm her down from. During these angry outbursts, she also reverts to speaking in her natural French. She enjoys fencing, horse riding, and several types of dancing, such as ballet.
Avril has long, dark tangelo colored hair styled into ringlets and curls, pale skin, and "unusually brilliant raspberry eyes"*. She wears light raspberry lip gloss, heavy mascara and a light amount of pale pink eyeshadow.

Avril's father is d'Artagnan, one of the protagonists of The Three Musketeers.
Avril and Willow have been friends since their first year at Ever After High. Avril took it as her responsibility to help Willow get over her fears and prepare her for her destiny. Others described Willow and Avril as inseparable, and the Royal or Rebel drama has only pulled them closer together, even if Avril is Royal and Willow is Rebel.
Though she doesn't have a boyfriend now, Avril is looking for her very own 'Prince Charming'.
In her Basic attire, Avril wears a ruffled light crimson dress with poufy sleeves, lace along the bottom of the skirt and bows around it. Over the top of the dress she wears a dark fuchsia overcoat, tied together under the chest with a raspberry colored bow. The coat has silver lining and lavender Fleur De Lis accents on it. She wears a knee length brilliant raspberry cape with lavender Hydrangea lining the bottom. She also wears dark fuchsia pumps similar to Apple White's pumps with some differences. On her legs she wears thigh-high stockings with raspberry frilled trim. Finally, she wears a small dark fuchsia Cavalier hat with a bow and pink feathers.
PortrayalsIf Avril were to be a canon character in the webisodes, her voice would be provided by Jessica DiCicco, voice actress of Flame Princess in Adventure Time. Not only does she have the kind of voice TheHatter had in mind for her, but she would also be able to prefectly act out Avril's angry outbursts. A sample of her voice can be found here.
If she were to be in a live action movie, she would probably be played by Marzia Bisognin, or CutiePieMarzia. Her face shape combined with her eyebrows (because damn) would be perfect for Avril. The only exception would be her voice, as Marzia is Italian and Avril is French.
