"You can't comfort the afflicted without afflicting the comfortable."
The face of Creamland to much of the world, Princess Pride is the second of the tiny nation's three princesses. Rejecting the crueler premises of her neo-objectivist upbringing, her natural empathy toward the plight of "unworthy" others led the Dairy King to make her the kingdom's spokesperson. Her work as a diplomatic has made her more worldly, but it has not had the desired effect of making her more cynical or callous. Idealistic but not naive, she uses Creamland's discretionary funds to support humanitarian causes and the arts, maintaining a policy of optimism and hope despite the world around here. Often the target of terrorist attacks, she is kept under constant protection, and has become quite a capable combatant herself in her next-generation power armor, the Cream Knight. Her love for Laika, her guardian, is a source of irritation to her father, who would much rather her married off into what's left of the European royalty.

Princess Pride is the daughter of Her Serene Highness the Dairy Queen, also known as Annette, and the CEO-Monarch the Dairy King, Yaniv Baumann. The second child, she is the younger of Vanity and the older of Reason. She was born in approximately 2200, although no firm details have ever been released from the royal family regarding their actual birth.
Growing Up A Princess
As the child of royalty, Princess Pride started her training at a young age, working with those that had trained Princess Vanity to become a Princess worth the title, including topics as royal law and duty, and other more womanly things such as hand-knitting and yes, even cooking. Due to her pride in herself and her name, Princess Pride always put forward her best effort, no matter what the training is in.
In 2210 when Creamland officially became a official monarchy and welcomed into the United Nations, Princess Prides training continued, and broadened. She was always the more outspoken of the three Princesses, and wielded her charm and dignity like a sword, able to deal with even the worst of the worst with nothing more than a smile and a kind gesture. Due to this, as she entered her late teens, she quickly became the spokesperson for the monarchy and the land in general.
Protection And Love
It is not to say that all was well, however; due to the small forces of Creamland, they constantly reached out to the Swiss and others for help in protection. As such, when she turned eighteen in 2218, she was a instrument of diplomacy in making sure the European invasion by the Mavericks got overturned.
As such, she got assigned her own personal bodyguard by the name of Laika Hiro-St. James shortly afterwards, a man of good deeds and work. Princess Pride trusted him explicitly, and brooked no argument in her work after seeing that, unarmed, she was much of a danger as a terrorist target. As such, she worked with a group of scientests to make a power armor, the Cream Knight, so that she can fight alongside Laika and the other Commandos.
The Knight Commando In Love
As time has bled on, her attention has turned towards not only keeping herself and her small group of friends and her country safe, but also towards love. While she was unsure of it, she finally realized that she had spent so much time with Laika that she had fallen in love with him, a secret that she has made clear to her father, much to his displeasure.
Laika continues to not notice, however. Well. He has. Maybe. Sometimes its' hard to tell...
However, she continues walking the world with her charm and grace. The title of Serene Princess is not just one given, she has utterly earned it with her ability to defuse situations with her voice and personality alone. However, when that is a problem, she's got a giant chain with a spiked ball at the end.
She's not your typical damsel in distress, and she likes it that way. Now if everyone would settle down and be quiet, we can get back to the United Nations meeting regarding the latest problem....
Not The Storybook Ending
Currently, after punching Devilotte de Deathsatan IV in the face and abandoning the Cream knight armor to face carol on foot while snarking back to Joseph Gibson, and getting Laika into trouble because of her actions, she and he were given a choice, and accepted it. Laika will work with Repliforce while Princess Pride undergoes enhancements from Dr. Ciel Mallory so that she may fight in and out of the Cream Knight.
