Ultimately Mnemon is the kind of person who would rather be frumpy and alive than fierce and demanding but dead.
    I think Mnemon's rich enough to buy some form-fitting armor so she can finally stroll around with some proper cloth on, or can she just use the Living Armor ? What with her being a talent demon summoner and all, hmmm, she does seem like the "Look, don't touch" kind so she probably hates something like Perronele.

    Hey, still better than the average "I just came out of Saint Seiya" Solar :P

    So how close is Mnemon to the dragons? I mean is she a pale skinned red head, or does she have skin of flawless marble, and hair vibrant red like a ruby.

I don't trust her to rule. And whoever told her that was a good look was clearly not looking out for her bests interests.

    She's Earth-Aspected, she should ditch the purple dress for some flowing white silk chiffon. Make the crown darker and more severe (to project power), use food dyes to enhance the red of her hair. Get up in some really high heels to literally tower over her lessers. She could be really fierce and commanding but, at present, her character design really phones it in. Her purple dress makes me sad and angry. I hate it.

    Glad I'm not the only one who hate Mnemon's dres. Her shoulderpad's design is just meh, her chest area is a big blob of purple, that "crotch" protection piece that attach to her big belt just shred her image as a powerful Exalted to pieces.

    It's not that her dress are too ugly, more like it's too bland and mediocre for someone like Mnemon, or maybe that magic explosion cause her sense of fashion to deteriorate like a zombie, no, like the Lover !

    Flowing, translucent, buoyant silk chiffon? Oh sweetie, let us sit down and watch the "Johnny Chiffon-y" season of Project Runway, shall we? But, really, that purple dress just looks so uncomfortable. It has all the shape of a trash bag filled with meat.

    I love the idea of her White-Jade Crown, I just have never liked any of its depictions so far.

    You are now and forever my nemesis. Her dress is amazing. The White-Jade crown a work of beauty. Had I the resources or personal skill to do so I would go as Mnemon for halloween or cosplay as her for every convention.
    Your ideas make her into some sort of Disney character. No part of chiffon makes anyone look powerful, ever. You are wrong and should feel bad about how wrong you are.

    Well she certainly picked the most hideous shade of purple to wear. And, again, that dress fits her horrendously. I'm sure many of the other Dynasts make fun of her for it. I'm sure mothers tell their daughters, "You don't want to look like Mnemon, do you?"

    I love that image. Going to have to use it.

    That said...The Purple thing might also be because she is using a hearth stone to keep herself young (Stuck bodily at something like 16?) Not to mention not all house colors could the element color, House Mnemon might be Purple and Gold.

    Mnemon doesn't want that. Mnemon wants the entire Realm to be molded in her image, to be the House of Mnemon: ten thousand inferiors crawling at her feet, clay in her fingertips, and she, mistress unconquested, sorceress supreme, having squashed all her siblings.

    Mnemon looks like she wants to be the Empress, but the Empress was utilitarian. Mnemon is much more... megalomaniacal.
