Greetings! This challenge is all about you creating a character for this setting. This is one of the settings out of my folder of plots, and I would LOVE to see what kind of characters everyone would design. There is NO time limit on this challenge. You can even do this challenge more than once! And maybe if I do ever run this plot, you might be kidnapped to play! >:3 You are creating a Knight of The Seven using the setting and world information provided below. The Seven are an elite secret Imperial Guard for the current Vykendria royal bloodline. They have existed since the very first Oelamir King and are loyal only to blood heirs. The original Seven were chosen from the most skilled & talented warriors of the age by it's founder, a man part of the Previous King's bloodline. As years went on if one was lost, they were quickly replaced by another. Someone that was chosen as their successor, or chosen by the Head. Only Seven, Always Seven. Never more, never less. Remember that the Seven are SECRET. No one has ever known of their existence except blood heir royalty. Each of the Seven have a number they "inherited" from their predecessor, this number they use to identify themselves to other Seven members. (1 - 7) Usually they will have a Tattoo or an Special Item that has the number in code. Most of the Seven have never met each other. They keep in contact through their current Leader. Several years ago the Imperial King Stephane Oelamir passed away leaving his second wife, the Queen Amethyst as acting ruler until his heir Princess Gwendolyn comes to age. The King was a beloved man as was his first wife. His second wife is an enchanting, beautiful woman, but harsh and feared. The Princess is a mystery. No one outside of the palace has seen her since she was a child. There are suspicions that the Queen is either trying to groom the Princess as a puppet, or have her "removed" in order to keep the crown. The Princess is the last blood heir of the Oelamir line. In it's current era, Vykendria still holds on to old world traditions even as advanced technology has become and every day thing. Castles, quaint villages, horse carriages, fashion and other traditions are blended in with high tech weapons, machines, and power structures. Though magic has been a part of the world since the dawn of time, it has become old fashioned in favor for the less draining machines of today. There IS magic, just remember that it's "old fashioned" and not as common as high tech sci-fi weaponry. Imagine a world that looks a lot like the time of King Arthur, with the castles, the knights, the forests and villages... but there's a lot of new tech mixed in. Laser guns, light sabers, machines. Vykendria's old world traditions are blending with new school tech. This world also contains different races, like elves, fae, dragons, etc. It has NOT reached the point of space travel or meeting alien races.
