Lady Yelinda, from Ultima VII Part Two
Lady Yelinda is the nominal ruler of Fawn on Serpent Isle. In reality, however, while her power is great in concept, others make the important decisions. She is naive and unaware of her powerlessness. She is said to be the most beautiful woman of Serpent Isle.
When the Avatar arrived in Fawn in Ultima VII Part Two, the hero and companions were invited to an audience with Lady Yelinda after a good public song from Iolo. She awarded him with a diamond necklace for Gwenno, but then Dupre slipped by revealing his allegiance to Lord British. Lady Yelinda didn't do much in the trial, thanks to her apathy, but when the Avatar and the Cause revealed the truth behind the Oracle of Fawn, she finally realized the truth, and started to use her power for real, giving Dupre the Crystal Rose of Love as compensation for all the trouble.
Her new rule didn't last long, however. When Mad Iolo devastated Fawn, he left Lady Yelinda alive with a curse that completely removed her skin, mocking that beauty only goes skin-deep. The Avatar found her in the Gorlab Swamp and restored her with the Comb of Beauty. Thankful, she gave the hero the key to the treasury of Fawn.
- Zulith writes that he thinks of Lady Yelinda as a woman with the intelligence of a fish: Good to look at but no brain.
