People in Charge

Royalty and leaders

Princess Adriana

The princess of a small European country called Morvania, where she lives in an old-fashioned castle built right on top of a mountain. She has a kind heart, but doesn't really like all the responsibilities of being a princess and looks forward to becoming the queen and doing as she pleases. She is about to turn 18 in one week, which is when she will be crowned queen of Morvania. But her royal cousin Lexa, and her royal secretary Dimitrios is trying to stop that from happening. She is virtually identical to Kimber, and is a big fan of Jem and the Holograms. Infact she sent the royal jet to bring them to Morvania for a command performance. But she and Kimber are mistaken for each other, and has an unplanned switch places.

She has a love interest in one of her royal guards, Corvin.

When she is mistaken for Kimber, we learn that she does not have the same musical talent.
