Physical appearance Edit
She was known as 'Brigade Commander Delta' and was regarded as one of the most effective guerrilla leaders opposing the Legislaturalists. After the revolution, she realized that the Committee of Public Safety was going to sour swiftly on the demands of the April Tribunal and allowed herself to be co-opted to State Security as a People's Commissioner in order to avoid being purged. Since 1909 PD she served as Javier Giscard's Commissioner, and soon began a romantic relationship with him. (HH6, HH8)
After Admiral Thomas Theisman overthrew Oscar Saint-Just, she became acting head of state of the People's Republic and oversaw its transition back to being simply the Republic of Haven. She then won the following elections, becoming the first Havenite head of state to be freely elected in generations. (HH10) She was also the head of her party, the Constitutional Progressives. (HH12)
As president, it was Pritchart's mission to rebuild the struggling Republic and negotiate a lasting peace with the Star Kingdom of Manticore. She also had to deal with internal political troubles, most importantly her Secretary of State, Arnold Giancola, who eventually caused the resumption of hostilities and the beginning of the Second Havenite-Manticoran War. (HH10)
After evidence of Giancola's involvement in the manipulation of Havenite-Manticoran diplomatic mail was discovered, she tried her best to reach a ceasefire with Manticore and the resumption of peace talks. However, after the assassination attempt on Queen Berry of Torch and the assassination of James Bowie Webster, Elizabeth III ordered the execution of Operation Sanskrit, a deep raid that caused the death of Javier Giscard in the Battle of Lovat.
Having no time to mourn her lost love, Pritchart decided that a final, never before seen military strike had to be executed in order to bring a quick end to the war. She authorized Operation Beatrice, which led to the Battle of Manticore, the largest space battle in human history. (HH11)
Some time after the battle, Admiral Honor Harrington arrived in the Haven System as an envoy for Queen Elizabeth, and peace talks were held. However, they came to a stop when Harrington was recalled to the Manticore System after it had been hit by the Mesan Alignment's Operation Oyster Bay.
In May 1922 PD, Victor Cachat and Anton Zilwicki arrived on Haven with Herlander Simões, a Mesan defector who informed the President about the Alignment's secret plots, including Operation Rat Poison. Realizing that Mesa was the true enemy, and that it had used the distrust between her and Elizabeth III to weaken both their star nations before the upcoming confrontation with the Solarian League, Pritchart decided to act: she traveled to San Martin aboard Haven One and Honor Harrington took her to finally meet the queen in person aboard her flagship. Hours later, the two leaders chose to end the war and combine their remaining military power against their common enemies. (HH12)
In June 1922 PD, she along with Empress Elizabeth and Protector Benjamin signed a peace treaty ending the Second Manticore-Haven War; at the same time, she concluded a military alliance with Manticore against the Solarian League. During her visit she was a guest at the royal wedding of Crown Prince Roger Winton and Rivka Rosenfeld. (HH13)
