Christianne Marian Shieh (don't ever call her by her full name) is a retired agent who occasionally still consults on missions. Prior to her retirement, she worked in the Department of Mary Sues. She joined the PPC in December 2006.
Christianne, the daughter of Taiwanese businessman Martin Shieh and American novelist Elizabeth Halloran, had been a fan of the PPC since grade school. She was named after her grandmothers, Christine Halloran and Ling An. Her Chinese name is Shieh Chun-Ying, (T: 謝純英 / S: 谢纯英), which is, ironically, ‘thankful pure hero’. (To be fair, this might have been a deliberate change on her part; her parents were more likely to have gone with the more feminine 春英, ‘spring petals’.)
Entrapped by the mundaneness of the Real World, young Christianne would often turn to literature for escape. This included mocking the romance novels her mother ghostwrote, yet unwittingly internalising some of the messages.
Christianne entered university to major in English, during which she entered a whirlwind and abusive relationship with an older classmate. This caused her to drop out without finishing her degree and travel the world instead, spending time in London as well as New Caledonia, during which she joined the PPC.
Christianne first worked in the Naruto continuum, where she learned how to use Japanese weaponry. She transferred to the Harry Potter fandom after her partner died. After her partner in Harry Potter went insane after the 2008 Macrovirus Epidemic and Mary Sue Invasion, Christianne was transferred to Lord of the Rings and assigned to her current partner Eledhwen Elerossiel.
There is probably a betting pool somewhere in HQ as to when Eledhwen will die, too, because Christianne seems to be the Sam Winchester of partners.
Christianne has dark hair and green eyes, and is mainly identified by the bright red ribbon she wears in her hair. She is dwarfed by her partner Eledhwen, being only 5'6", and lacks a figure.
Christianne's bloodthirsty urges to charge the Sue at the first sign of damage to the Canon are often tempered by her more level-headed partner. She gets easily impatient and just as easily bored, and when bored, she will pick random fights with Eledhwen just to see what happens. The two are capable of bickering over the smallest things (like stray fingerprints).
Christianne is also rather untidy, but hardly anyone would know since Eledhwen practically shadows her, picking up after her. This untidiness has also been a source of tension between the two.
Christianne is a feminist of the extremely sardonic school, often pointing out how Sues are anti-feminist while on missions.
However, Christianne is probably first and foremost a fandom-collector. She streaks through cycles of obsession with different fandoms, often dragging her partner along. This often explains why Eledhwen knows about non-Middle-earthian things like Red Pants Mondays in the BBC Sherlock fandom (and even the concept of pants at all). When Christianne is agitated, she will start reciting passages of literary works she had studied in university, including the works of Edgar Allan Poe and Shakespeare.
Eledhwen and Christianne currently have three mini-Balrogs (Mara Labingi, Mara Labinigi, and Ithillien), two mini-Dragons (Locy and Lucy Pevenzi), and four mini-Centurions (Cotti, Galacitca, Doran, and Adam). They were also adopted by Marley the giant king cobra, formerly a Not-So-Cute Animal Friend of a Stu that tried to infiltrate IAHF.
Relationship with Eledhwen
Christianne and her partner have had a reputation in the PPC for being the "will they/won't they" couple from as early as 2011-2012. They got together after the Blackout in 2013, and have been inseparable since. They were married in Rivendell in 2016, followed by another quieter ceremony in New Caledonia later that same year.
Activities Outside the PPC
Christianne is the primary link between the PPC and the International Academy of Hetalia Fanfiction. She, along with her partner Eledhwen Elerossiel, constantly keep the Course Coordinators at IAHF updated on the movements outside their campus. She aided in the defense of IAHF in 2011 HST, and was thus awarded the Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Mochi.
Christianne is also involved with the Modern Baker Street Fanfiction Academy, having delivered a Sue to them for disposal before.
In 2015 HST, Christianne and Eledhwen made appearances in the Quest for Erebor Liveblogs as Cellinnel and Eithriel respectively. They remained in Rivendell until 2016 HST, when they returned to officially submit their retirement paperwork and get married. Since then, Christianne has finished up her undergrad degree, and is focusing on raising her family.
