A couple days ago, I had a few people ask me why Icelandic. It was kind of weird how the comments came on the same day. Strange timing aside, Niobe isn't mine so I can only pass along what I know. Her bio
says "She also only speaks Icelandic, even though she grew up in an English speaking country. She can understand English just fine." It doesn't make a ton of sense to me but I got my head around the idea by telling myself she was suffering from the world's worst case of foreign accent syndrome
. Obviously, that isn't official but it helped me get in Niobe's head. Do with it what you may.
tl;dr - Niobe is from an English speaking country with a royal family (she's a princess
) and understands English but only speaks Icelandic.Niobe translation courtesy of *bananamonHey hey hey, hvað þykistu vera að gera?! Aquin á þessa skrúfu og það er ekki séns að þú sért að fara að taka hana frá mér. Þetta er það eina sem ég á frá honum. Ég skal gefa þér eitthvað annað í staðinn. Ég get búið til fullt af dóti fyrir þig, hvernig hljómar það? Ömm, hvað finnst litlum strákum skemmtilegt? Ég veit ekki mikið um stráka á þinum aldri. Hvað ertu annars gamall? Ertu ekki aðeins of ungir til að vera einn á vappi? Hvar eru foreldrar þínir? Hey, slepptu skrúfunni annars segi ég foreldrum þínum hversu óþekkur þú ert!
Hey heyhey, what do you think you're doing? This screw was Aquin's and there is no way you're getting it from me. This is the only thing of his I have. I'll give you something else instead. I can make you all sorts of toys, how does that sound? Umm, what do little boys find fun? I don't really know that much about boy's your age. How old are you anyway? Aren't you a bit too young to be walking out here alone? Where are your parents? Hey, let go of the screw or I'm telling your parents just how naughty you are!ÁÁ
