Princess Marya. Now there's a character. She just can't help herself. Her inability to find any real human connection is painful to read about, at the same time, there's an almost comic excess. She is offended so easily, is so irritable. Is she just full of self-loathing & that spills over to everyone around her, or does she really feel that she is the ultimate martyr, simply because she must put up with "normal" people. What does she want??
