Boadicea of different times
“So the Queen Boadicea, standing loftily charioted,/Brandishing in her hand a dart and rolling glances lioness-like-” Will broke off at Tessa’s look of incomprehension and grinned. “Nothing? If you were English you’d know. Remind me to find a book about her for you. Regardless, she was a powerful warrior queen.

I like to think Charlotte is much in the same mold, if somewhat smaller.” -Clockwork Angel, Chapter 4: We Are Shadows, Page 93.
