The woman behind the desk wore a wide-collared, V-necked dress of blue-green, had long hair and low bangs, all of a cross between sunset clouds and the outer edge of a candle flame in an otherwise dark room, and natural, I somehow knew, and her eyes behind glasses I didn’t think she needed were as blue as Lake Erie at three o’clock on a cloudless summer afternoon; and the color of her compressed smile matched her hair.
Florimel is the youngest Princess (for the girls, the order seems to be: Deirdre, Fiona, Llewella, and Flora) and on top of this is apparently the dumb blonde of the family. Set to watch over Corwin by Eric during his exile, she nevertheless completely buys his
amnesiac bluff and sets him back on the road to recovering his full memories; and is furthermore spooked enough to try walking back to Amber as soon as he appears.
For this reason, I always imagined her as being a softer, more feminine character, in contrast with the dynamic Fiona and sultry Deirdre: Joan Fontain as Rowena in the 1952 Ivanhoe.
