The Princess Alexandra Kirillovna Golitsyna is an envoy from the Russian Imperial Court of Tsar Alexander II. Ostensibly she is here to observe how an integrated society of supernatural beings an mortals functions in Great Britain. She is guest of HRM Queen Victoria, who cautiously welcomes the chance to forge closer ties with her Slavic cousins.
The Golitsyns are a very old family, one of the largest and most princely of the noble houses of Russia. Princess Golitsyna is enigmatic and unpredictable; often leaving people in states of awe and speculation. She plays every hand very close to the chest with the quiet strength and nobility of a seasoned politician.
Although she looks quite young, her mannerisms and measured behaviour speak of an unexpected maturity bred of the aristocracy.
