Buon giorno! I'm Bianca Del Sole, the daughter of the daughter of the sun. I'll tell you the story. It started with my grandmother, who was prophesied at birth to be loved by the sun before she was twenty and to bear his daughter. They shut her up in a dark tower. One day, she climbed up the windows to see the sunlight, and she became pregnant due to the sunlight. She gave birth to a girl, who was abandoned and taken in by another king and queen, who had a son of their own. When they grew up, the girl wanted to marry the prince, but the king would not allow it. The king married his son to a princess. The sun's daughter had powers of her own, and she was able to resist fire. She displayed her ability to resist heat. The prince's bride tried to do the same and she burned to death. He took another bride, and the same thing happened, resulting in another dead bride. He took a third bride, and the same thing happened again - another dead bride. The prince eventually became ill, and to get better, he needed a special dish of barley that needed to be grown and prepared in an hour. The sun's daughter was able to do it, and she cured the prince. She then revealed to the king that she was a princess. The sun's daughter finally got to marry the prince.
Of course, after that, my mother lost her powers - it is said that children of the sun lose their powers if they marry. She doesn't mind, since she's been able to find non-magical ways to express her talents. My mother was eventually reunited with her mother and grandparents. My grandmother, Danae Del Sole, had taken a husband a few years after her daughter's birth and had three more kids. I'm close with my maternal grandmother and great-grandmother. My great-grandfather died when I was nine, and so my grandmother now rules as queen. I have five siblings (I'm the fourth of six) and a number of cousins.
I've been given abilities from the sun, who is technically my grandfather. I'm able to withstand extreme temperatures. I can walk right into a fire and nothing will happen. I can also put my hands in boiling hot water and not get hurt. People are impressed by my powers, and always wonder how I got them. I explain that, having the sun's blood in my veins, I'm able to do all this weird stuff. I love showing off to the other students.
Being the fearless girl that I am, I consider myself fearless. I'm not easily daunted, and I often do things that are extremely dangerous and could easily get other people killed. I'm very much a risk-taker, and I don't care if something is dangerous - as long as I can make it out alive, I'll be willing to do it. Some of the students here are afraid of me because they think that my recklessness might be the death of me. I always reassure them that my solar powers will protect me.
Of course, there's the destiny conflict too. I think I'd like to take my destiny. It seems pretty cool. I'm aware that my powers will fade away when I get married, but I'm willing to make that sacrifice for destiny's sake. When I get old, I can always tell my children and grandchildren about the things I did in my youth. Plus we all have to grow up eventually. But for now, I'll just enjoy thrill-seeking and dodging certain death.
