Nadezhda Petrovna Kozlovskaya, or Celaena Aelin Sardothien, as she goes by, was born to the Polish Jadwiga Kozlovskaya née Dzięcioł, and the Russian Peter Vladimirovich Kozlovsky on January 3rd, in Kandalaksha, Murmansk Oblast, northwestern Russia. When she was six, her parents were murdered in their sleep - she isn't sure why she wasn't. She was found and taken in by Evgeny Boskov, and trained in the art of killing as his Protégée. After graduating from EESM last year, she's probably the youngest widely recognised assassin, and certainly the biggest threat in Poland. (Full here)
Nadezhda has long, blonde hair and blue eyes. She's naturally rather plain, but has long since found that cosmetics can make her stunning, if she applies them skilfully.
Celaena is very stubborn and headstrong. She usually appears sadisic and can be disloyal, but once her loyalty is gained, it doesn't easily waver. She does have morals, outright refusing to kill children, and is unlikely to accept a mission if she doesn't know exactly why the target needs to be eliminated. She often says that she hates everyone, and that almost always seems to be the case. Celaena is usually sarcastic and cold, but is known to be warm towards her friends, as few as they are. Despite her profession, she is still rather girly and delights in cosmetics, pampering and shopping.
Celaena despises her uncle, aunt, and cousin. Fryderyk didn't really seem to care about Jadwiga's death, and she hates him for it. Jacquetta will always be pompous and unintelligent, and Maryla she saw as insufferable and stuck-up. She killed Maryla.
Celaena is rather fond of Emelia, mainly because she can see the similarities between them. She usually treats her sort of like a little sister, and there's always a place for her at Celaena's house, should she ever want it.
