The Lovers Masquerade is a traditional ball and sacred right in which the eldest Princess of Lyra is courted by all of the high ranking nobles of the planet. The ball was designed to have both the Princess and her suitors to wear masks, concealing their identities. This tradition dictates that the Princess should choose her husband and future King before ever seeing his face or knowing his name. This practice has continued ever since the first Queen of the United World Government came into power, symbolizing that the new world order would be founded on Love and Intellect, rather than the brutal ways of the Old Kingdoms of War. Princess Violeta however, is more motivated by the desire to serve her people than in chasing romatic fairytales and rather detests this tradition.
