"Eighty percent of my life is normal like any other mother. I worry about my children, if they're doing all right. I worry that my husband is doing well. The 20 percent is just the queen aspect that factors in. But for me, it's life as usual, and it's just taking care of my family."
- Kanina Paskhina-Halevi, 22 September 2017
Born Kanina Emiliya Paskhina-Halevi of the House of Paskhina-Halevi on May 12, 1976 as the second daughter of Dearest Lady Belina and Dearest Gentleman Aleksandr. Her older sister, Yulia, was originally the next in line to ascend the throne, but after her mysterious disappearance in 1983, Kanina was named the future heiress in her place. Eventually, she would ascend to the throne and be coronated on June 24, 2017 after the passing of her mother - her father today is recognized as the "Elder Gentleman of Kabzeel", an honorary title given to the spouse of the former reigning monarch who passed away.
Born May 12, 1976 in Belcross, Volgagrad, Kabzeel; Kanina was welcomed warmly by the public and by her parents. Born during a time when her parents were at their most popular for their well-known philanthropy and human development work in Africa and Asia, she was well received by the greater public and was shortly named as next in line after her older sister, Yulia, who at the time was only 2. However, after the Incident of 1983*, where Kanina's sister was mysteriously kidnapped, her grandmother, Dearest Lady Galina, grew bitter and harshly criticized the idea of a "second daughter" ever ascending the throne of Kabzeel and was a firm believer that her first granddaughter would return to her family one day. Due to her grandmother's beliefs, Kanina was constantly berated by her and was often referred to as "вещь" (thing) for nearly every interaction between the two. By 1995 she was forcibly married to Victor Roma Chernykh, princeling of the Statnik Group (Kabzeel's largest multinational retail and construction company), in an agreement between her grandmother and the company's then owner, Kondrati Chernykh.
Her marriage was at first uneasy and uncooperative, due to her dislike and distrust of her husband, Victor. She repeatedly questioned his commitment to their marriage - initially believing he was having an affair - and often found him immature and unworthy of managing one of Kabzeel's three largest companies - and despite her efforts to fix the mistakes of her husband regarding business affairs, she was constantly berated by her father-in-law and strictly confined to the role of an obedient housewife, which according to Lady Kanina in 2011 "drove her to immense frustration". However, after the birth of their first daughter, Ivanna, they were forced to begin cooperating with each other in the interest of their growing family. At first, it appeared that only Kanina was taking her new role as a parent seriously while Victor was out living a "bachelor-like" lifestyle and working for the company while often neglecting his family duties. Internally, she was enraged by her husband, but out of traditional Kabzeelian values remained quiet to her husband's antics. Only after the birth of their first son, Abram, in 1999 did her husband eventually start to take a more proactive role in raising his children.
By the start of 2000, Kanina had begun to form a closer relationship with her father-in-law who began to allow her to work for the company as a financial adviser, where she could could put to use her finance degree from her years of study at the Federal University of Belcross. Her husband was not at all too pleased and believed his wife should remain at home with the children and ensuring they grow up with a close bond to their mother, instilling a sense of traditional Kabzeelian family values. However, nearly every one of his attempts to stop Kanina from working proved fruitless as she continued to prove herself as a resilient, smart, and charismatic businesswoman. Throughout, most of the year 2000, she continued this trend until she gave birth to her daughters Adriana and Mariya in 2001. Her pregnancy was a shock to the public who were completely unaware of it as it was concealed by the company for unknown reasons.

In 2004, Kanina attempted to appeal to her grandmother and rebuild their relationship once again, but her grandmother did not budge and made moves towards completely disowning her - while continuing to reference Kanina's sister as the only true heir of the Kabzeelian monarchy. However, fortunately, her grandmother passed away peacefully in 2006, allowing for her mother to ascend the throne and welcome Kanina back into the family with loving arms.
While she was accepted back into her family, she remained apart of the Statnik Group in becoming one of the companies most prominent and successful business managers and investors. Her work with the company continued throughout the late 2000s and early 2010s, which allowed her to amass a total net worth of $3.5 billion. However, after the death of her mother in 2017, she left the company and ascended to the Kabzeelian throne, being coronated as Kabzeel's next reigning monarch on June 24, 2017.
As a Kabzeelian nationalist, Kanina often puts her support behind policies which ensure the betterment of all Kabzeelian livelihoods. She has in the past supported free trade, globalization, nationalization, and economic liberalism for having a positive effect on improving the people's lives and developing Kabzeel into a world economic powerhouse alongside the likes of the United States, the Soviet Union, Germany, the United Kingdom, and China.
Kanina is socially conservative and a Kabzeelian traditionalist, much like most of Kabzeel, she does not support cultural liberalism or complete LGBT acceptance - in that she does not recognize the legitimacy of "transgenderism", considering it a perversion of "womanhood" and a form of misogyny by mentally-ill, and immoral, men.
Kanina is often referred to as a conservative jew, paternalistic conservative, and technocrat through her promotion of a traditional Kabzeelian paternalistic society with the social classes intact, but with the working class receiving support from the Establishment made up of a proposed system of governance in which decision-makers are selected on the basis of their expertise in a given area of responsibility, particularly with regard to scientific or technical knowledge.
