    STORY

    Our little story takes place in a land known as "Alderia", a land ruled over by hundreds of Human and Elven Royal Houses who have waged war on one another for centuries, trapped forever in a never ending Stalemate, wasting resources and sending both the young and old ot their doom..For what you may ask? Pride, theses lords wanted nothing more than power and respect, fighting anyone they deemed weaker than them simply to rub their ego. Lords who showed even the little bit of compassion would be targeted by neighboring kingdoms and usually be wiped out, any sign of weakness is acted on to hopefully end this stalemate that has prevented any progress.


    THis war was simply called "The Vanity war" and was only the first chapter in this chaos, the next chapter was only far more troubling than the first. You see, the Vanity war is what caused this; with all the resources beign drained at a futile cause a shortage in troops began with lords being unable to crate armies capable to take on a garrison and have enough troops to defend their territory at the same time. They began conscripting villages at a rate that began a uproar int he community, the lower class citizens have had enough of being forced into this foolish war of theirs and gain nothing but a dead son or father.



    Due to this shortage of military power, bands of mercenaries comprised of mostly armed peasants trained by AWOL soldiers start appearing in the thousands across the realm from all races and cultures, this is infamously known as "The War of Fortune" due to every battle in this war being fought by mercenary groups.

    The royalty of the realm only saw them as ungrateful peons trying to "move up" in this world rather than stay in their modest lifestyle..But they needed troops and if theses people are willing to kill themselves for a few coin, why not? So the nobility play along and even offers some groups their own land if they work for them, maybe even make them royal knights if they prove their worth. So they sent them to fight their vanity war and kept their actual troops inside their walls for their protection.


    To say the least theses rulers never kept their promises and ended up slaughtering entire bands when they come to receive their reward, refusing to honor their agreement and pay up to some lowly peasants. Of course this does not end well and they realize the error of their ways and see that they are without a army again.


    Then one of the more influence rulers of the realm, King Hale IV, a human ruler then called for a end to this chaos among each, to put a end to the slaughtering of their people that their foolish ancestors put them in. The various empires and kingdoms agree to this and wish to try for a era of peace. but they want to make it spectacular , not just some verbal agreement among messengers. No what they wanted this to be a amazing event. A grand citadel was constructed smack dab int he middle of the continent of Alderia, After its construction each royal house would send their son or daughter as a envoy to a gathering held in this citadel, each accompanied by a hundred royal knights each to the grand structure to sign a peace treaty on behalf of their nation...In their own blood, as a sign how they will honor this agreement.

    But something goes horribly wrong...

    You see during the "War of Fortune" the people of Alderia stepped on the toes of a giant. West of Alderia is a continent not as large as Alderia..But despite its size there us a long history on this piece of land. This continent is known as "Celdrin" to the natives, the natives of this land were also caught up in their own war, but compared to the wars waging in Alderia, the wars in Celdrin were far "cleaner" and "Honorable" if there was ever such a thing.

    five factions are native of this land, children of each are bred for war and can't wait for the day they can fight. The Factions here did not fight for land or Vanity,they fought because they see it as the ultimate test of Skill, Discipline and honor. Everyone is trained for combat and those deemed "dishonorable" are enslaved to work on their farms to pay for their crimes and eventually upgrade from slave to a Laborer and live as a citizen with rights..banned forever from fighting however.

    The people of both Celdrin and Alderia have known about each others existence for awhile but never really bothered with each other during the "Vanity War", the Celdrin did not see it as their war and that they should stay on their land and keep to their honorable warfare, but they did however do trade with some of the rulers of this land for food and sometimes even purchase prisoners to work on their fields as slaves.

    However when the "War of fortune" comes around and see the need for mercenary bands as a "inventation" to be apart of the war, the five factions of Celdrin see the need to band together to combine their epic trained forces as one massive army to take on the larger war happening in Celdrin.

    They sent some of their best to Alderia to represent what true warriors look like, looking for honorable Combat and a fortune they make way to Alderia to take part int he epic battles they hear stories of that happened in Alderia. Sadly they did not get what they expected, they got battles but they fought against untrained peasants that used dishonorable tactics that sacked villages and are only doing this mercenary gig because they were mistreated by their former masters due to their corruption and their Vanity war.

    They were also betrayed by their employers, nobility saw them as equal to the mercenary bands made of peasants, and thus treated the same, not getting their end of the agreement and disrespected by the "Mighty" Royal bloodlines of the land.


    The forces of "The Celdrin Union" boil with disgust and anger at the of Alderia, labeling the royalty as "Dishonorable savages" that need to be put down, that plagued this land with their own selfish desires. A council meeting made of the leaders of the Five factions of the Celdrin Union to discuss a drastic move, to purge the land of Alderia of this "Royalty" and bring more "Civilized war" to Alderia. When they learn of the peace treaty signing in Alderia, the Union of Celdrin only want to destroy them more, seeing this as them trying to run away from their dishonorable actions for a few years before going back to their savage war.

    The Union of Celdrin does not even see this as them declaring war on Alderia..More like a "Purging" it and building on the ashes a new future. With the armies of Alderia small and feeble, and the well trained and massive horde belonging to Celdrin; its would be very easy to take them out. So they plan to make their mark and attack the Citadel after the signing of the treaty.

    "If they truly mean to stand together then let them show it."

    -Huan Irow's closing words before giving the signal to begin the invasion"

    --------------------------------
    Your role in this

    You are a member of one of the many many royal houses that populate Alderia, not just any member of course but you are the heir to the throne whatever it be Prince or Princess, you are sent to the middle of Alderia to attend a gathering to sign a peace treaty to bring in the first era of peace..In your blood.

    Why The heirs you may ask? Why in my blood? The land thinks it would be best if the next generation be the one sto sign it as it will be their responsibly to honor this treaty once they take their throne and to show how much this treaty means to them they will write it in the Royal blood that flows though their veins and makes them who they are.

    But....Tragedy strikes the gathering as a foreign faction known as "The Celdrin Union" launch a invasion on the Citadel to start their bloody campaign against the Royal class for their dishonor during "The war of Fortune"

    Their goal? To snuff out the royal class and build upon the ashes of Alderia a new warzone for honorable combat, to wipe it clean of all the dishonor.

    You and several other heirs meet up during the attack and must work together to escape the citadel alive, but your nightmare is far from over as you will all be in a brutal manhunt, bounties will be placed on your head and unsettling executions await you if caught

    You are all in this together...So work as a team and honor the treaty, or betray each other"
    --------------------------------

    The Celdrin Union

    The Union of Celdrin is made up of five groups who for generations fought each other with respect and honor, believing that war is meant to test the discipline and skill of the opposing force.

    The Yakens

    The Yakens are oddly human in appearance and can easily be mistaken as one but their rough features and no-nonsense personalities are what tells them apart from Alderian Humans

    This faction is considered to be the main leadership of the Union despite each Group being apart of a council, its just the Yaken's current leader "Huan Irow" is seen as the most influential and respected member of the council

    The Yaken soldiers are all bred for war, at age 8 every child is pushed into a brutal training process to prepare them for honorable combat, soldiers are well versatile and focused in combat, making them one of the most deadliest units on a battlefield


    Children of Veran
    [​IMG]

    The Children of Veran are a Orcish cult that believe that they are the children of a war god known as "Veran". Legend has it that Veran created them to reap the souls of warriors to feed him, their weapons are crafted and "blessed" by the tribe's shamans to act as a connection to Veran's realm.

    Any kill with this blade reaps their soul to send to Veran to absorb, Due to this however the Children of Veran only are interested in fighting warriors, they don't raid villages and kill unarmed opponents. They were created to kill warriors and not non-combatants. But even since joining the Union they adopted the Yaken's "code of honor" while still serving Veran, they will happily execute dishonorable non-combatants, but not with their weapon..they would instead use their hands or feet to execute those that are dishonorable so they don't send a weakling to Veran and anger him...Curb stomping is their favorite form of execution!

    The CoV have the largest population of warriors and act as the main force, their eagerness for combat makes them a fearsome foe to fight. They wear light armor as they think their faith is enough of a shield to protect them.


    The Jikkions

    [​IMG]

    The Jikkions are a reptile like tribe who hail from the south of Celdrin; They are the fourth largest faction in the union but dispute their size their soldiers are equal to 10 CoV warriors thanks to their very tough and thick skin combined with their skill in spears and shields makes them walking walls on the battlefield

    Their skill is not only in combat, this tribe is also the main contributor to the Union's naval forces, half of the entire Union's naval is made up of Jikkion vessels. Theses vessals were not only used for war, but for trade! Yes, the Union actually was active the Alderia economy by mostly purchasing prisoners of lords to work as slaves in Union lands.


    The Fol'a

    [​IMG]

    Reknowned for their Four arms, the Fol'a are masters of swordplay and close quarters combat, not favoring open combat the Fol'a are very good at taking on multiple opponents in tight spaces. They favor a defense over a offensive and are considered the most patient of all the other groups apart of the Union.

    Alot of their culture was influenced by the Yaken's code of Honor and discipline. The only difference with their cultures is that the Fol'a does not devote all of its resources to war and actually leads in Philosophy and Mathematics, able to construct siege engines for the Union to use...Theses come in handy during the invasion you can tell.



    The Ohrions

    One of the factions of the Celdrin union is shrouded in mystery as they never been talked about outside the island besides being listed as a member of the union...Nobody not native to Celdrin has any idea what the Ohrions are or what they look like. Many rumors in Alderia spark up that the Ohrions are the true puppet masters behind who runs the Union

    Some stories are made to scare children that the Ohrions are horrible beasts of incredible power that come after the naughty boys and girls of Alderia. However those from Celdrin must know who this faction is..They are openly mentioned as a member of the union but nobody in Alderia has ever seen them or given info on who they are.

  2. This sound really cool. Making an elf Prince. Would it be cool if he knew like little magic and it will grow through out the rp. Like he will able to levitate things, but only things under 5 pounds? Going to have skill in trickery and assassination. Later down the line if it's cool, his magic will grow (like learning a form of Telekinesis) and his assassin skills. Char will be up before end of the weekend.
     
  3. Name: Seti Wyisswar (pronounced Vee ess var)

    Race: Human

    Gender: Female

    Age: 23

    Sexuality: Heterosexual

    House you represent: House of Virtues Vice

    Short History of your Royal house: The House of Virtues Vice is a council of the countries officials that have been hand picked by the rulers of the time, the King and Queen. The kingdom rose under a family of wise men that raised the walls around a city in order to keep themselves safe. The city of Yirral would eventually elect the family into a monarchy which they gratefully accepted, but they also set up their council that would remain through the royal house through tradition, though not necessary for getting legislature done. The next heir to the throne not necessarily the child of the royal family, however it must be the child of nobility. To avoid the nation falling into the hands of a child that does not wish to rule, the council holds a series of tests for those that wish to become the next ruler. From the tests, both mental and physical, the council gathers information on the individuals and chooses their Shahzadi, the individual that, while not a prince or princess, will act as the heir to the throne when the next passes.

    List of siblings if any: Only child

    Royal Title: Shahzadi

    Height: 5'11 / 1.95 meters

    Honorable

    Personality: Seti is the type of person that will operates extremely well under pressure. This is mostly due to a certain level of arrogance that she holds with herself almost at all times. It would even be debatable if she is doing well under stress or if perhaps she doesn't get stressed because she constantly believes herself to be above the issues at hand. This confidence comes to a fault as she never knows when to quit even if she finds herself in a situation in which she cannot win. The idea that one might best her at something she has practiced is inconceivable in her mind, thus also causing her to be headstrong. Being both arrogant and headstrong also leads her to end up questioning authority of others very frequently and intentionally disobeying the orders of her superiors if she thinks her ideas are better. This is not out of the desire for rebellion, if she has gained respect for her superiors she will do as they say, but earning her respect is no simple task and few have been able to do so.

    Under normal circumstances, while Seti is vocal and often speaks with volume, she is very calm and collected. Most of what she says is backed up by some sort of logic, though that is not to say she is always right as she does often make mistakes, particularly when it comes to how she judges people. First impressions are everything, if one were to give her a negative first impression they would have an extremely difficult time making her think anything other than that initial impact. Unfortunately, she is also quite judgmental and will find the negative in people before she finds the positive, making it very difficult for her to make friends. To further make friendships difficult to come by, if Seti has nothing nice to say she will still speak and is not afraid to leave off the sugar coating over it. She is not afraid to call out a lie and she will do so in a very rude respect. It would be best to avoid speaking to her if you don't have thick enough skin to take the verbal lashings she can dish out.

    While she was raised to treat everyone as equals, she never truly took this lesson to heart. In her eyes some people are inferior to others. Though this is a very negative look, she tries her absolute best to not profile, but finds it rather difficult to do so. Patterns will emerge in her mind and she will assume that someone of the same type will behave in the same way, but she will not vocalize this until she has seen it happen herself, but once it has been seen she will make it known without hesitation. If she dislikes you she will not only not try to hide it, but she will make it known to you directly.

    Skills:
    Seti can speak 3 languages and can read them all, though not perfectly.

    She is also quite observant, she notices the small things about people.

    History: Seti was born to an alcoholic father and an abused mother. When her mother had fallen pregnant, she ran away from the terrible man that was her father. However, her mother was not prepared to raise a child on her own. Knowing this and fearing her husband, Setis mother had come into contact with a member of the royal council and begged them to take care of her child. The couple had agreed to the womans plea and hid the woman from her husband while they took care of her while she was pregnant, offering to cover the expenses of any medical care required. It was because the couple could not have children themselves that they agreed to do this, the man of the relationship was sterile. When Seti was finally born, the couple let her mother name her, and the woman picked the name "Seti", the name of her grandmother.

    Her adoptive parents raised this child as their own daughter, but they did not hide the fact that they were not her actual parents. Seti was never bothered by this fact, why would she be? She didn't know any other life and her parents loved her very much. The pair of adults had great hopes for what would be their only child, how could they not? They finally had the child they'd dreamed of having one day. Being a family that was of high nobility the couple also were able to pamper their child and treat her like the princess they wanted her to be.

    The country Seti grew up in put a lot of focus in ones ability in combat and as such Seti was taught the ways of war, however she was not trusted with weapons at such a young age. She has read up on the arts of war and understands a lot of strategies, but with a lack of real world experience the application of those studies were highly limited. They did, however, give her the confidence it took to become an aspiring warrior. She studied more than war history, but also the crafting of weapons and did her best to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each type of sword and polearm. However, when it finally came time to brandish a weapon her lack of actual experience was shown very clearly as she found that carrying and using a sword was not as simple as swinging it about. She had known from the beginning that the center of balance was going to vary based on sword, but there was no book that could tell her how to properly wield that weight. Her first choice of weapon was the katana, it seemed like the most valid option, but when it came to Kendo, she was terrible at the movements. Eventually, her trainer had her select a different weapon, a sword with significantly less finesse involved. The one handed knight sword.

    Because of Setis education on the workings of a battlefield her physical incapability to execute movements and her lacking experience to know the best course of action, she drove to improve herself, but her training was cut short before she could finish her improvement process. The king was pronounced as ill, and that could only mean one thing. The trials to become the next heir to the throne would begin. Seti had to participate, otherwise she would feel she was letting herself down. Her loving parents had driven her to become more than she was. The tests, however were for more than she bargained for. She had to study on politics, external affairs, trade management, and much more. Regardless, she would net let it get in her way. The written tests were very difficult, but she managed to pass all of them, even if just barely.

    It was quite ironic that the test she was least prepared for would be the physical set of tests, ones to put her strength, stamina, and combat skill to the limit. While she did wonderfully in the test of stamina, she did poorly in the test of strength, though this much she accepted graciously. It was on the test of combat skill that she became completely shocked. She had lost, and not by a thin margin. At this point it became clear that no amount of books and words could possibly prepare her for real world combat. Of 15 contestants, she placed 14th. She understood the mechanics but lacked the warriors instinct. Fortunate for Seti, the council had chosen her as the heir despite her loss in the test of combat. When she asked why she was selected, they responded telling her it was her confidence and determination, something that the country needed from a ruler. Despite this, she still seeks to improve her combat skill in order to be a stronger leader before the late king passes.

    Motivations: Seti is out to prove she can become a great warrior not only to her nation, but to her family as well.

    Likes:
    Reading is a wonderful thing, put words in a specific order and you've created the universe.
    Architecture is an art form in its own, it should be respected as one.
    Swords are somewhat a passion of hers, should she find herself near a blacksmiths forge she'll surely annoy him with her questions.
    Purple, the color of nobility and royalty.
    Finding her limits, it means she can break them.

    Dislikes:
    Both pretentious people and those that lie.
    Magic users, they are cowards using the arcane as a crutch for their lack in physical skill.
    Idling, there is always something that can be done.
    Heat. It makes her uncomfortable and she feels much better in a cold environment.
    Black. It's the most boring color.

    Fears:
    Defeat is worse than any fate
    Finding oneself alone in a crowded world is absolutely terrifying.
    Bats, they're a pair of wings that see with their ears.

    Notes: She does not use magic at this point, though she may learn some later.

    EDIT: I just read your interest check and I now realize this isn't exactly what you had in mind for characters...I'm still going to try my luck though, let me know if you want me to change her to being born into it and such. Alternatively I can make her be adopted by a member of the council, they'd get similar treatment.

  4. Either change it to the Former or latter as being adopted into a royal family is allowed even though your not born into the Royal class your blood does become a Royal Bloodline as you enter Royalty/Nobility so you are still a target

    so im fine with either of those options
     
  5. Alright, I made some tweaks to better meet your intentions. I changed it so that the heir doesn't necessarily have to be the royal families child, but only nobility can compete. She was also adopted by a member of the royal council and pampered. Just some small changes that change how the character will work. It would also be a good idea to note outsiders might not know she was adopted and could easily be mistaken for blood relations as well.

    Was there anything else I needed to change?
     
  6. ACCEPTED!
    To be honest i can see the Celdrin Union liking your character...Might still want to kill you but...with respect >.>


    Also if you have any notable members of your house please message them to me so i can add them to the cast list under your House's section so i can keep track of their status

    Name: Bronwien Vrannoth
    Race: Elf
    Gender: Female
    Age: 126 (equivalent to 25 human years)
    Noble House: House Vrannoth
    House History: House Vrannoth was created by Bronwien's great grandfather, many centuries ago. The house specializes in very specific and luxurious Elven wines as an export. Because of the need for protection from bandits when shipping the wine, they also produce fine warriors, and the Royalty are more naturally strong than many other Elves. Better suited for melee combat than others, their guards have always been well versed in combat. The royals were all taught the basics, however it was never a main focus. The current King of the House is Elheal Vrannoth and the Queen Riniel Vrannoth, Bronwien's parents. The house itself has never been very outspoken in the wars, but did contribute. It used their peasants just like the rest of them, and to this day feel no shame in it.
    Siblings: Theredir Vrannoth, her brother; Arien Vrannoth, her sister; Duvain Vrannoth, her brother; Sildir Vrannoth, the youngest brother at home.
    Title: Berethenna (Crown Princess)
    Height: 5' 2"
    Morality: Honorable
    Personality: Bronwien is a very outspoken young lady. Not one for the arts that her mother tried teaching her, she instead took up learning from her father and his advisers on how to run an economy, lead a war, and manage a business. She prefers the rough and tumble to a life of luxury, even though she's never really seen what the world has to offer. She is just barely an adult elf, with 50 years into adulthood, and is still a bit immature, and rather arrogant. She has the outward personality of a stereotypical royal. She does like to think she knows everything, but she's only scratching the surface of a much scarier world than she could have ever expected.

    Bronwien is a very diplomatic individual, and believes the right words and actions can solve the issue any time, no matter what. This may be naive, but she truly believes that the right combination of actions and words can solve any diplomatic issue. She is very for the signing of the treaty, because she sees it as a good opportunity for the houses to become allies, and band together to fight any possible invaders, rather than being a union of ruinous states.

    Her arrogance shines through the most when she talks about House Vrannoth. She is very proud of her heritage, as a Vrannoth and as an Elf. While she does not agree with everything her father has done, she still follows him with loyalty, and would never dream of betraying him. She understands that it will be some time before she takes the throne, but does not mind waiting and serving her father in the meantime.

    Skills: Basic swordplay, a good strategist, can handle trade and money, diplomatic
    History: Bronwien was born to Elheal and Riniel and was their first child. When she started to age, her mother took her under her wing, and started teaching her skills that would make her a good wife. However, it was soon evident that she didn’t like this, and instead was taken under her father, to learn how to run the kingdom herself instead of finding a husband to run it.

    As Bronwien grew, she was given basic sword lessons, as all royals of Vrannoth do, and her brother Theredir was born. The two loved each other, and she would play with him constantly when she wasn’t in her lessons. Her Sister was then born, and she was not quite as happy with that. She wanted to be the only girl, but she learned to love Arien just as much. When her youngest brother Naurion was born, she was at the stage where she was too busy to spend much time with him, so she knows the least about him. Another brother was recently born, Sildir, but she has rarely even interacted with him. During this time, she met a boy around her age from her father’s line of nobility, and the two are now planning to be wed in a few more years.
    Motivations: Her fiance, the desire to protect her siblings, the want to see herself on the throne

    Name: Theredir Vrannoth
    Race: Elf
    Gender: Male
    Age: 103 (equivalent to 20 human years)
    Noble House: House Vrannoth
    Siblings: Bronwien, Arien, Duvain, Sildir
    Title: Mernil (First Prince)
    Height: 5' 4"
    Morality: Honorable
    Personality: Theredir has always been a quiet and humble lad. Instead of learning with his father, he learned from his mother. He learned sewing, baking, cooking, and most everything else his sister was supposed to learn. He is a little bitter that he won't be king because she took to it so well, but he loves Bronwien so much nonetheless. He was still taught the basics of swordplay, but he preferred learning magic from his father's personal magician. Because of his love for magic, he was even able to learn a spell. He decided to join his sister, mostly under order from his father, but also because he enjoys the thought of peace throughout the houses. A very kind individual, Theredir would never dream of harming innocents, which is why he hates the wars so much. He helps those he can when he is outside of the castle.

    Theredir does not believe in the use of words. However, he also does not believe in war. He believes good actions can be the only way peace is attained. He feels words can help, but are mostly empty. You can say you honor someone, but that means nothing unless you can show it. Because of this, he often does favors for his siblings when they were angry at him. He is in good graces with all of his family members.

    He does not like violence, and usually shunned his sword lessons. He is not the best at the sword, but he is rather good at defending himself with a shield. He tried to get away from sword lessons whenever he could, but was forced to take them. He's a stubborn boy, and will often try to run from responsibility that he doesn't like. He will only fight back if it's in self defense or if his family is threatened. However, because of his lack of sword skills, he tries to keep around Bronwien for protection when guards cannot be found.

    Skills: Very basic sword skills, some shield training, has a light-based spell he can use to give light to an object and extinguish it; doesn't work on any other light thus far.
    History: Theredir is the second child of Elheal and Riniel. Born about 30 years after Bronwien, the two grew up together. She was a young child when he was born. They two became the best of friends, and played nearly every day they could. As Bronwien aged, and went into studies, Theredir became lonely, but they still spent as much time as possible together. When his father tried to teach him ways of war, he didn't like it. He preferred watching his mother embroider and casually bake and cook. He wanted to learn those instead, so his mother did. He quit learning with his father, and went with his mother.

    As he aged, he was urged to start finding a wife to birth some grandchildren. This is the time when he learned he enjoyed the company of both men and women. He began a relationship with another man his own age, but it was never to be. He was sent off to war, and he was killed. He regrets it, but isn't traumatized from it. He has yet to find another person.
    Motivations: Seeing his family live on and having one of his own, studying more magic to become a very powerful wizard

    Dislikes: Rain, Military, Crime, Drama, Noisy Settings

    Gender: Female
    Age: 87 (equivalent to 17 human years)
    Noble House: House Vrannoth
    Siblings: Bronwien, Theredir, Duvain, Sildir
    Title: Tadaranel (Second Princess)
    Height: 4' 10"
    Morality: Honorable
    Personality: Arien is a sweet and adventurous girl. She has in innate gift for helping people. She spent most of her childhood following around her older siblings, even though Bronwien didn't like her at first. Theredir immediately became her friend, however, so the three of them played together despite any of Bronwien's protests. She is moderately quiet, but enjoys talking to others. She loves history and learning, and will take any opportunity to learn about things.

    She enjoys many of the woman things her mother taught her, but also likes playing outside. She wanted to come with her siblings because it was a new adventure, and an opportunity to learn about other houses. She learned some basic healing magic from the royal medic, which helps when she's outside and gets a little scratch or bruise. She doesn't like dresses very much, but wears them because she should. She's a very smart girl, and definitely the most studious of the bunch.

    Arien does not like conflict, verbal or physical. She took sword lessons, but she doesn't want to use them. She thinks the war is dumb, and hopes this will end it. She doesn't get involved with politics, and just leaves that to her father and siblings. She instead just keeps oblivious to the details, and only gleans some information from listening.

    Skills: Basic swordplay, can heal tiny wounds like small cuts and bruises, Is very book smart and knows a lot of history.
    History: Arien is the third child, also the Middle child. She is 16 years younger than Theredir, which makes them very close in age. She was always adventurous, and always soaked up her studies. She learns very easily, some may even call it a gift. Arien was never lonely at home, because she was either playing with her siblings or with her mother and learning how to make fine pastries, cook beautiful meals, sew amazing tapestries and dresses, and everything else her mother felt was necessary for a young lady.

    She has not yet entered the age where she needs to consider marriage, but it is soon enough that her mother talks to her about it. She doesn't have many friends outside of royalty, so she assumes she will have to marry one of them. Her eye is set on a specific young man from the lower nobility.
    Motivations: Growing up to reach adulthood, Getting married one day, Learning all she can to become a scholar

    Name: Duvain Vrannoth
    Race: Elf
    Gender: Male
    Age: 71 (equivalent to 14 human years)
    Noble House: House Vrannoth
    Siblings: Bronwien, Theredir, Arien, Sildir
    Title: Tadernil (Second Prince)
    Height: 4' 8"
    Morality: Honorable
    Personality: Duvain is a simple lad, preferring his fighting to his studies. He can barely wield a sword, but when he's learning, he has fun doing it. He's also being taught how to use a bow, and is learning rather quickly. He hasn't done much with his parents yet, but he plans to study with his father and Bronwien when the time comes. He does like the thought of war, but only in the childish sense. It's a time where heroes can be heroic and bring glory to their kings and win the hearts of maidens and get praises and treasure. He has not yet had to experience the true horrors of war.

    In his spare time, Duvain loves going "hunting". He stalks animals through the woods and streets, and loves setting up snares. He always lets his prey go, because he has no use for it. He likes grossing out Arien with bugs and things, and also likes when she comes along and helps him. He is very carefree, and his only enemy is school and a few mean boys in town. He loves the freedom he has, but wants more. He doesn't care for the royal life, ad actually wants to become a guard or a hunter.

    He does like one subject, and that's art. He enjoys sketching things that he sees in the wild, and showing his art teacher. His room's walls are filled with sketches he's done. He absolutely loves the outdoors, and can handle himself pretty well in the wild. He's never had to deal with anything serious in his life, so he's still rather immature. He does enjoy playing with Theredir, but he holds only respect for Bronwien.

    Skills: Can kind of shoot a bow (only a small bow), can draw and enjoys doing it, knows how to "survive" in the wild and can track relatively well for a child.
    History: Duvain is the fourth child, and second youngest of House Vrannoth. He spends a lot of time with Arien, because they were born so close together. He hasn't grown up very much yet, but he is taking fighting lessons. He is not favored by the family, but still loved. His father thinks it's ridiculous that he would want to be a simple guard or a hunter, but his mother assures him he'll grow out of it.

    Duvain started his bow training early, even before his sword training. His teacher said he had potential, and that was all he needed to want to become super good at it. His siblings support his want to be a guard or hunter for the most part, though they all think it's just some silly flight of fancy. He was told to go with his siblings so he could see how some politics worked. Because of him, they're more heavily guarded.
    Motivations: Wanting to grow up and do whatever he wants, seeing his parents
    Likes: Outdoors, Playing, Hunting, Art, Sunshine
    Dislikes: Heavy Wind, School, Vegetables, Snow, Big Dogs

  13. Character Sheet


    Name: Neima

    Race: Human

    Gender: Female

    Age: 14

    Sexuality: Heterosexual

    House you represent: Aello



    Spoiler

    Short History of your Royal house:
    Aello is the name of a great Amazonian warrior, and the person who inspired Neima's great-grandmother to create the country. The original purpose was to provide a safe-haven for any and all woman who didn't want to live in a place where they held no-more power. Men were also welcomed, though the women were the ones with the power in both government and military.
    The country, while it may not be the largest or the most powerful, can be seen as an equal to the others for their special understanding in the ways of strategy...which mostly consists of torturing whatever soldiers are unlucky enough to get captured by them. It can be said that once caught, to describe it as a living hell would be
    Such as this name entails, the way this house works is also very Amazonian-like. For example, the heiress can never be male, only female, and the current queen must birth as many children until the first female child appears. Any males that come before the heiress shall be trained to be her royal guards, because while they may take pride in their leaders being of the so-called 'weaker sex', they don't like to see their precious 'Varis' become stained with the blood of outright murdering low-life enemy peasants.
    Along with this, no heiress is to be given a last name, it is believed that by doing so the parent is shackling their child to themselves, instead of providing them with the loving support of serving the country. Any 'brother' of this precious heiress, called 'Wasi' would be given the surname Clete, for they are appointed by the Great Goddess to serve and protect their future leader.

    List of siblings if any:
    Yerik Clete

    Royal Title: Varis (Crown Princess)

    Height: 4'9

    Morality: Honorable

    Personality:
    Neima is considered a very complicated girl, as she was raised to be the diplomatic actress her mother wished her to be. Most people who don't know the Varis see her as polite to a fault, as somebody who is always smiling and thinking of others' opinions without judging too much. Then again, there are mixed opinions about her, depending on who you ask. Some say she's a very quiet girl, a great listener and observer, basically a great comforter should one ever need her to be. Others say she is a cute, bubbly child, always taking things with a grain of salt and overly-enthusiastic.
    Though, rumor has it that she is considered one of the most frightening and inspiring to the Aello military's torture squad. As one who's cold and calculating, Neima's known as a monster who holds no mercy when in charge of extracting information from a soldier, be them elder, man, or child. The only people who have ever seen her this way, and live to tell the tale, are her mother and elder brother, but that doesn't stop rumors from spreading around the kingdom.
    Though, if you were to take away her masks, and peel away the layers created by both her mother and a ever-lasting sense of caution, you would find a small, fragile child, insecure and easily confused about the ways of the world. With her brother, she sometimes drops these masks and layers and reveals her true nature, interacting with constant teasing and prankish orders like she used to when she was younger. She doesn't drop her masks around her mother so much anymore though, mostly because the last time she did she got scolded for it.

    Skills: She is fairly accurate with her throwing knives, though only from a somewhat short distance away. (Think around 10 meters or so)

    History:
    Neima was born child of the Queen and late king, the second of the two children born from the happy couple. For the first few years of her life, the family was happy. She could almost all the time be seen with her brother, running around the royal residence and playing games such as hide-and-seek and whatnot. It was a happy time, even if there was a war currently going on at the same time, it was still pleasant for the young girl.
    Then came the death of her father.
    It was quick, overnight something had gone horribly wrong with the nightly medicine he was taking at the time. By morning, he was dead. It appeared to be the aftermath of what the royal doctors considered poison, though they wouldn't dare suggest that their queen committed treason. At least not until their Varis was of age.
    Since the King died, the current Queen focused on her daughter, training her in the art of being the perfect little princess. Acting lessons, throwing knives 101, oh, and let's not forget the cute little moments where Neima got to be the one to torture an innocent soldier.
    By the time she was 13, her mother had the Varis wrapped around her little finger. Over the years she had grown a bit distant to her brother, despite the fact that they had basically the same schedule each day, as is the tradition. Then again, maybe it was the argument they got into about Yerik believing that their mother was the one who poisoned the late king. Shocked at the fact that her own brother believed this, she outright denied it, and one heated argument, she still denies it. It took months before the two could speak to each other again, even with the help of the entire household.
    Now, as news of a treaty between the entire continent swept across the world, the current queen was furious. She didn't want to give up power, but knew that it must be done, so she sent her children to go do their royal duties, whilst she tried to come up with an idea about how to keep her reign on the throne, and get even more power. Then it came to her, if she could make it look like one of the other royal families murdered her children, war could rage on, and she could get the power she so wished for, all while keeping her position on the throne safe at the same time.
    Too bad she didn't realize what was about to happen when the treaty was signed.

    Motivations:
    The fact that if she dies, her country will be without a Varis, thus most likely collapsing. There's also the fact that she wouldn't want to leave her brother alone in this world, but she'll never admit that to anybody.

    Likes:

    Dislikes:
    -Low-life scum
    -People controlling her actions forcefully
    -Sweets
    -Sunlight
    -DOGS

    Fears:
    -Bathophobia-
    Fear of water-related depths, such as deep water and/or drowning. This is mainly because of the fact she cannot swim.
    -Cynophobia-
    Fear of dogs. Yes, this includes wolves and anything resembling a four-legged dog.

    Character Sheet


    Name: Yerik Clete

    Race: Human

    Gender: Male

    Age: 19

    Sexuality: Heterosexual

    House representing: Aello

    List of siblings if any:
    Neima

    Royal Title: Wasi (Guardian of Crown Princess)

    Height: 6'1

    Morality: Dishonorable




    Spoiler

    Personality:
    Yerik, when he was a young boy, was always a giant sweetheart, not to mention a bit of a flirt (which was, as the maids at the palace said, was adorable). He never liked to hurt anything or anyone, even when provoked. It's exactly because of this that Neima used to tease and prank him, usually involving the royal cat.
    But over the years he has hardened, becoming much more cold and harsher on the outside. If you insult him, he insults back, and other (more tsundere-like) things. While people may see him as a jerk, truth be honest he's a big softie when it comes to his sister (or cats, or cooking, or-oh well, you get the point). Seriously though, he's still just a big sweetheart, and still falls for his little sister's childish tomfoolery.
    Against his enemies though, he's back to that hardened state, coldly attacking with no hesitation for the fact that he could kill them. Unless he's battling a giant cat, in that case all bets are off.

    Skills: While he has the ability to shoot a bow, he is more skilled at swordsmanship (even if the guy's never been in a real fight before).

    History:
    Yerik was the first-born out of the two children. Sadly, most were disappointed in the fact that he was, well, a he, but that soon changed when his little sister popped out 5 years later. He never cared about the throne, the minute he set eyes on the crying wrinkled beet-red thing that was his sister, he instantly knew she was going to be perfect.
    For years, he watched his cute sister grow up, training and learning with her like a Wasi should with his Varis. When their father died, he had overheard the royal doctors murmuring about murder, and approached them about it, promising to keep it a secret from his mother.
    Ever since then, he has been much more wary around the current queen, trying to keep an eye out for his sister and not realizing that she was slowly becoming their mother's puppet until it was too late. When he tried to untangle her from the strings set by the cruel ruler, he was denied, his sister shutting down and reverting back into her mask right in front of him. To say it broke his heart would be an understatement, and one heated argument later he was shocked at the fact that she still had faith in the queen.

    Motivations: Minus the fact that he is loyal only to his little sister, and would do anything to keep her safe? Absolutely nothing, after all he was raised to care about nothing but his little sister.

    -Ailurophobia-
    A persistant, irrational fear of cats, big or small.
