The stern breeze. It blew through the castle courtyard, the high of the morning yet to come, and the lines of young women dressed in ceremonial attire caused the atmosphere to be heavy. For the half seaside, half mountainside kingdom, Fract was a world of its own. Wedged between the two, it was highly defensible and supplied from both the mountain pass and the sea. For now, though, those young women had a fate and destiny to play out. They were the next generation in the Order of the Lady Knights, and while they all lacked their armour to begin with, they'd be given their first chance of the future they would bear, should they survive through the training. Soon, a rather tall woman fronted all of the young ones, clad in the armour of the Lady Knights. She seemed so composed, poised for any danger or situation which may present itself at any moment. When she arrived, all idle chatter and general noise ceased, before she cleared her vocals. Her presence was truly awe inspiring. "Ladies, knights to be, scholars without their degree, I welcome you to this very day. The first day of the Solar Calendar, this is the day which you find your path, and walk it indefinitely. By standing here, on these lands, you submit yourself to the Queen." The woman looked around, gazing toward everyone present. Another woman, surprisingly shorter than the other but no less intimidating, stood by her side. "You are all given a privilege, to be here, to have the chance to grow as you will. Often, in times now past, those who were noble were the sole people who could enter the knighthood. Due to this, there were fewer than a hundred knights, and they were often killed, as skilled as they were. With our new respect for techniques involving simple magic, we will outlast those before us!" The short woman raised her arm, fist curled, while the young women cheered. With that, everyone seemed to scatter, and to Protactus, everything was so chaotic. Her empathetic senses were her eyesight, but the mass of people in a single place caused her distress. Beside her, Dianne the doctor placed an arm around her shoulder, a calming gesture if the sixteen year old didn't utterly despise her. Her blindness had forced the doctor, originally a fairly high ranking noble, to look after her. Nearby, Edifelt was rather excited for the future. Her gleaming blue eyes truly told the entire story, and she seemed to have a skip in her step while she approached the building filled with everyone's individual sleeping quarters, more than a hundred girls to sleep there every night. The fifteen year old simply admired the architecture put into the buildings and towers around the place, the exclusive training centre of the lady knights. And far away, in one of the corners, da Capriá sighed with annoyance. She was usually in the thick of it, a popular person in her own right, but her foreign garb seemed to do much the opposite. Even so, the fourteen year old went about her way, a bored expression gracing her eastern features while she stepped along with a flat soled shoe. For now, at least, you find yourself walking along toward one of the three girls. Who will you follow? Who will you meet? This is down to you.
