Name: Donna Joan
Posting: Duke Pedro’s Aragon Regiment
Commanding Officer’s report
Introduction: Donna Joan is a tough soldier able to tackle the most challenging tasks with bravery and determination. She is the illegitimate sister of our commander Don Pedro. Although she has many successful campaigns under her belt her loyalty is not to be trusted as fought for the opposing side in the recent battles.
Issues: Don Pedro has forgiven his sister for fighting with the opposing army but because of her actions Donna Joan has not been promoted having lost out to her fellow soldier Claudio from Florence. As well as her disloyalty another reason that would have prevented Donna Joan being promoted was that her commanders felt that she was not a good leader of men as she is rather too self-obsessed. There is a feeling in the regiment that the failure to obtain the promotion is something that Donna Joan is brooding on and feeling angry about. Such selfish concern about her position is not the kind of approach likely to make a leader that men can look up to and follow without question.
Donna Joan is close to one other soldier Borachio who seems to admire him greatly. There has been concern about these soldiers who have been involved in activities which have made their commanders doubt their trustworthiness so it is a worry that Donna Joan is associating with these men. It is recommended that Donna Joan’s commanders keep her very closely watched to ensure that her loyalty and behaviour is what is expected of a leading soldier in Duke Pedro’s regiment.
