Abele (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Abele (open) Abele (close) In the Kingdom of Galbadia, existed a strong monarchy. This monarchy, known as the Barton monarchy, had been in control of Galbadia for almost three centuries. Many royal families married into the Barton family, creating a strong extended family- a family tree of which consisted of military captains, war heroes, philosophers, explorers, and most importantly, shrewd politicians. The current king, King Lionel, gave birth to four children from three different women. Two were girls, considered to be ignored in the line of succession. The other two? Two vastly different males, twins to the third woman, a concubine who died in childbirth. Julian, the one deemed as the King’s first son, was a genius in the classroom. Theory, reason, war strategy, philosophy, science… If the boy could be given the time to think, he could be given an answer. He impressed the men with his quick thinking, and the woman with his wit and quick tongue. A social butterfly, a man who could do no wrong! Meanwhile, the second child was something different. Average in the classroom and studying, he was more of a wild child if there ever was one. Strong, cocky, and ever brimming with confidence, he attracted all around him. Rumors of his promiscuity ran rampant through the castle from the age of fifteen. He would never confirm nor deny said rumors, but they were still there… His name was Abele (Ah-beh-el), a never ending reminder of what he was. Just like the ancestral second son, that was what he was always destined to be: the second son of Lionel. Today, however, came an event that would begin the shaping of his life forever. As he laid fast asleep in his bed, Lionel had already begun to organize attempts to get the family’s wild child under control. His first action, was to call in one of the few who could reign him in. That was why they were leading a new knight to the throne room, for him to meet Lionel as Abele’s newest and personal knight!
