Fuchsia


I'm reading the Gormenghast Trilogy by Mervyn Peake. This is the Lady Fuchsia who is the daughter of the seventh-sixth earl of groan- Sepulchrave Groan.

She loves being in her secret attic which is above her room all alone where she can draw with charcoal and imagine being the sole queen of the giant castle known as Gormenghast.
