♠ The Jack of Spades. ♠
"See No Evil."
|| Male. ♂ || 400 years of age. || March 22nd, 1401. || Aries. ♈ || Aquamarine. ||
The Jack of Spades with an A blood type.
✦ || 5'8 (172cm) || ✦
✦ || Dirty blonde and styled it up to look soft, but messy. || ✦
✦ || Eyes are unidentifiable for unknown reasons. If you wish to know, ask the Jack himself. || ✦
✦ || More than one-hundred tiny little tally marks no longer than 3cm tattoo his skin, all over both of his arms. And a left eyebrow piercing. || ✦
The mystery man of the whole operation, Vance likes to keep his appearance simple but conservative. Long sleeves and pants are all that he wears these days, along with the sunglasses collection that he has somewhere to hide his deceiving eyes from the people that meet him on the rarest occasions. Vance also tends to wear a hat to cover his short blonde hair, and sometimes he doesn't. The hat dilemma really depends on the weather for him, but the long and sometimes oversized clothing will never be out of trend for the guy, even in the hottest of weathers.
Vance enjoys people trying to find him out using his secretive slim appearance, and gratefully, they always seem to fail as the distraction of getting their troubles removed from history takes their mind up more than some fashion statement.
|| Keeping it on the down low. ||
Vance prefers to keep things a mystery, whether that be himself, or others' secrets, and that seems to drive people crazy the most.
|| Cardiovascular Endurance. ||
The Jack of Spades can run two miles in less than 10 minutes, and when he's done, not even a single heavy breath escapes his lungs, despite his old age.
|| Combat. ||
He's immortal but reigns with a heavy fist. Vance can handle himself and even his partner in crime, the Jack of Hearts with his eyes closed and blind.
|| Intelligent. ||
Vance is more intelligent and knows the ins and outs of Pip more than the Clubs themselves, as he is always traveling, looking for news to tell.
|| Humorous. ||
With all of the hardships he's seen people get themselves into, he still keeps a childish demeanor, taking every single thing that's meant to be serious, as jokes.
|| Quick-Witted. ||
He can easily tell when someone's being serious about what they wish for or not. This determines his decision process.
|| Stubborn. ||
Even if you do beg, it's going to take a while for him to remove something off of the Timeline, or perhaps, he won't remove it at all.
|| Loose-tongued. ||
He spreads around anything he can find by putting it on The Timeline, for permanent stories to come for future generations.
|| Aggressive. ||
Always trying to make the clients he meets beg for their wants, even if that means direct and commanding orders, sometimes even violence.
|| Blunt. ||
He will sometimes say things that will hurt other's ego, but he doesn't know that. Not that he wants to, anyways.
|| Unaffectionate with love. ||
Not even the best seductress in the land could sway the man. Even his companion, the Jack of Hearts, couldn't move him with her beauty.

This is the personality that the world sees. What people believe of your character. How the interact with other people.
The inner personality of Vance Eden is the same on the outside, cold, silent, and mysterious with a bit of a flair.
A feathered quill and a scroll.
Has absolute control of all aspects in which other people exist, and can freely alter their nature, content, history, destiny, etc. All rules can be changed on a whim or flat out ignored, as he is the one dictating them.
Cannot grant themselves any life they wish, change any aspect of it, or simply start whatever they desire.
Vance can share his visions of different timelines to others, letting others see whatever they see on that specific timeline. This is either done via touching a person or controlling others' eyesight for the power to work.
What others see is very low quality, and most that touch him can barely make out the timeline that Eden sees.
Vance can gain strength from the moon, manipulate the time of night, block out the moonlight, and heal others using the moon's lunar energy.
The moon has to be out for all of these abilities to take into play and has to use the ability outside.

♥ The Jack of Hearts. ♥
"Speak no evil."
/ Female. ♂ / 399 years of age. / April 21, 1402. / Taurus. ♉ / Diamond. /
The Jack with the O blood type.
+ / 5'6 (171 cm) / +
+ / Natural dark brown with extremely frizzy hair, Diane doesn't think it's necessary to style her hair. / +
+ / Hazel hues cover Diane's eyes, you could almost get lost in them. / +
+ / Hundreds of small, 3cm tally marks adorn both of her thighs. / +
Unlike Vance, Diane absolutely loves fashion. She is always up for going to clothing stores or making her own clothing. Although there are scars on her thighs she doesn't mind showing her legs off with short shorts, skirts, and dresses, as it makes for a good conversation topic. She enjoys wearing the highest of heels, but she also enjoys wearing low heeled shoes. Although she enjoys the girly glamor, she enjoys dressing up in a style similar to Vance; long-sleeved and conservative. She sometimes steals Vance's clothes so she can fit into her desired style choice for the day in comfort, but don't tell him that.
Her looks and writing are all it takes for a certain client to come running to her, begging for their desires.
Finding true affection to those she encounters.
She's a lover, and most definitely not a fighter, capture her heart first, and she's all yours.
Being cautious around people and their feelings.
Out of the two Jacks, she's the nicest one. She can come across as blunt, but she always apologizes with a sign language sorry.
Like her partner in crime, Vance Eden, Diane can run for miles on end without breaking a sweat or breath.
Upper body strength.
With toned arms, you'd be surprised at that this woman can carry with her arms and core strength.
Eating a mass quantity of delicacies is Diane's passion, and she's not ashamed of it.
She tends communicates with people using simple pen and paper, and if they know how to, sign language.
Diane spreads around anything she can find by putting it on The Timeline, for permanent stories to come for future generations.
Diane blames the food for that.
Diane has Vance for that.
Cold-hearted on first encounters.
She appears mostly as judgemental and straight-forward at first, but if you keep running into her, she'll warm up to you eventually.
Diane's stubbornness is the exact same with Vance, no matter how much you're important, it's her job to keep you begging until you're on your knees.

Diane can gain strength from the sun, manipulate the time of day, block out the sunlight, and heal others using the sun's solar energy. Together with Vance's Lunar Abilities, the two are able to create eclipses and gain twice as more power energy that way.

FC: Demi Lovoto
"Just because it is the "Law", doesn't mean I'll listen."
Elora - In English, the name Elora means - Modern blend of El- and Lora meaning God gives the Laurel; the crown of victory.
O'Shae - The Gaelic prefix "O" indicates "male descendant of", plus the personal byname "Seaghdha", "hawk-like" with the implied meaning of "dauntless".
Eli - A shortened form of Elora and often what most people refer to her as in casual conversation.
Queen of Spades - Often in reference from a third party conversation
Duel Demon - A nickname conjured by those either directly involved in the Spades Kingdoms assassinations. Elora constantly carries two twin pistols on her at all times, and is known to be rather 'demonic' if and when she takes a life.
♠ Kingdom of Spades ♠
QUEEN of Spades
5'11 - Five Foot, Eleven Inches (180cm)
Natural Chocolate Brown || 18 inches in length
Hazel /w specks of orange
‼ Vertical knife wound - nape of neck ‼
Elora is what one would call an "exhibitionist" of style and flare. She holds nothing back when it comes to dressing up and being seen, even if it shows a bit more skin than anyone had anticipated. She uses this as a seduction tactic, and also as a fear-tactic, seeing as throughout history, women who dress more provocatively and outlandish, seem to garner more attention, and are able to pass off their reputations easier. Elora enjoys anything leather and PVC - high heels included. Anything with chains and bangles are an instant go to for the ostentatious young lady. She enjoys occasionally dip-dying the tips of her hair tones of purples or pinks, sometimes even colours no-one would expect. Elora enjoys keeping in shape, and seems to find that her habits, though rather awful at sometimes, don't do too much to deter her bodies metabolism. Her eyes are a hazel brown with flecks of orange sprinkled throughout, which -if caught in the right light- entrance by-standards. Her skin is naturally spotted with the occasional dimple and mole, here and there, however, aside from the occasional spotting, she is rather flawless in terms of physical appearance - this may be thanks to the tons of makeup she wears, but Elora herself would never admit this.
S✡ T ✡ R ✡ E ✡ N ✡ G ✡ T ✡ H ✡ S
Elora has always found it easier than most to get her way. Call it physical appearance, or mental tricks - whatever you will. It it rare that Elora gets turned down... for anything.
Often finding herself in rather sticky situations, Elore has mastered the ability to escape 'most' dangerous instances, though she cannot elude everything, she stands a fair chance making a break for it, should someone corner her.
Elora prefers distance combat to close, however is skilled enough to fend off a decent sized attacker or two at close combat. She weilds two twin-pistols constantly and therefore is more comfortable fighting from a distance; especially when the laws and rules of guns are on her side.
Though she might not seem it, or come off as interested, Elore finds the kitchen a relaxing place (such a steroetype). Cooking, baking, and the general hustle bustle of a smooth-opperating kitchen brings the Queen to peace, and after a childhood of cooking with her father, she's become rather proficant - able to cook up tasty meals.
Not a skill Elora capitalizes on, she was given the insite to her singing talent by her husband and King, Damon, shortly after their marriage and overtaking over the Spades Court. She rarely sings infront of people, however, should one walk by her bedroom/bathroom with a closed door, it's more often than not that lyrical symphonies should echo through the wood.
Finding a love for something, truly, has always been one of Eloras downfalls, however, she discovered around the age of 21, that she rather enjoyed teaching simplistic subjects to those willing to listen. Her love for science and the arts are what brought on this need to pass on her information. She considers herself a well-educated individual, capable of possibly even tutoring.
W ✡ E ✡ A ✡ K ✡ N ✡ E ✡ S ✡ S ✡ E ✡ S
✛ Keeping Secrets
Should someone require a secret be kept, Elora is the last person in the land of Pip you would want to trust. She lives for gossip, spoilers, and anything of the sort - so should he best friend come calling with a juicy secret, you better believe the entire land shall' know about it the folloiwng day.
✛ Following Rules
Laws and rules have never been this Queen's fortay, and why should they? She is one of two leaders to the most corrupt and under-appreciated Courts in the land of Pip. Often choosing to follow her own path rather than that of the laws or of physicas, Elora cannot be tied down by rules.
This comes as no surprise for the Qurrn of Spades and Elora O'Shae, but, monogamy has never been her strong suit (feel that pun). She often dables in bed with other men and woman, experimenting with her bisexuality as she pleases. Should someone interesting and attractive come calling, Elora is happy to put her husband and king to the sidelines and bed another.
✛ The Kingdom Hierarchy
For a rather small girl, Elora tends to be intense and feisty, even on her worst days. She likes to challenge authority and break any semblence of court rulings given to her by the history of Spades. Often trying to bribe the Ace of Spades, or screw with her husbands mental pysche', Elora strains with her "second-best" position in the kingdom of Spades - wishing to stand a top the rest.
Eloras endurance has never been, and never will be the best. She struggles with physical activity in general, and can only ever last for around one to two hours with any type of activity. This weakness has always been one of Eloras most hated, seeing as it interferes with her sexual life, and her hobby of parkour.
An average person has decent situational awareness, often able to sense dangerous around them before the danger itself get to said person. Elora, however, is the type to blank out in any intense situation. She often finds herself day-dreaming, even when partaking in parkour. In a fight, she can be seen focusing on one target and one target alone, leaving herself an easy target in and of itself.

Running Underground Operations
Controlling her Urges
Elora is an ostentatious, outrageous, and demanding person - this is shown daily with her personality. She is also very hot-headed, easily finds herself in arguments, and won't back down until the other person is crying, or has made a fair point. She isn't the type to relinquish secrets to others, lest they give her a certain 'feeling' that she can trust them. With her King, she is very loving if and when she feels like it, doting on him with food and physical affection, however, should he ever reject her embraces, she's happy to find the next best thing, this putting many rifts in their relationship.
Elora is loud-spoken and not easily settled down, once riled up. She is the type to take action rather than wait, and has found that fighting with people releases this pent up energy, giving her emotions some breathing room at times. She has been known to be very giggly and a massive tease, however, this easily changes like day and night, should you anger or betray her. Elora is awful with secrets, however, she tries her best to keep backdoor dealings and such under wraps, but should never be trusted with the namesake of a person or court, lest she spill her guts and get the person or people in trouble.
On the inside, Elora is insecure, scared, and even worried that she won't live up to the high-standings her Kingdom know the previous Queen of Spades to be. She fears the love and partnership of her King, Damon, will eventually fade away due to her promiscuity and flirtatious actions with others, causing her to lose someone who truly means quite a lot to the woman. She is also concerned that her jaunty actions will attract to much attention to the things Damon and her control within the underground of Pip, meaning the end of the Spades court, and the end of her.
Elora keeps but one special item on hand at all times. This item serves as a memory - for the day she met her king, and the day she was betrayed. Securely fastened around her neck is the silver medallion she was given the day her contract to kill the previous King and Queen of Spades became official.
|| TWIN PISTOLS ||
A favourite pair of pistols that Elora keeps on her person even throughout the night. She treats these weapons as if they were flesh, or her own children. Each gun is infused with special bullets that allow Elora to infuse her enhancement magic within them, in order to fire bullets unlike any others fired before.
|| SNIPER RIFLE ||
A one-of-a-kind, completely custom sniper rifle fit to Elora personal flare. She rarely uses this weapon, unless an incredibly long distance shot is required. This rifle functions much like her pistols, where she is able to infuse the bullets with magical energy.
|| DUEL BLADES ||
Elora's cherished blade - duel in it's origin, Elora occasionally carries around both, however is often seen with just one. The blades hilt was designed specifically around Elora's hand itself, fitting into every curve and crevice perfectly. Alone, it is a deadly weapon, with it's brother, you'd best skee-daddle.
Elora is able to enhance her physical attributes, not in size, but in ability and power. She can enhance her five senses, as well as basic motor skills such as balance, accuracy, and things of that nature. She is able to boost her strength and speed as well as logical and critical thinking skills. The downside to this massive power-boost, is the energy it absorbs. Once used, this ability puts itself on an internal cool-down timer, and more often than not, makes Elora ill. The time between using this ability and it's cool-down, is anywhere from 2 days to a weak, depending on how much energy she exerted. This ability can be paired with OEM (object enhancement magic) however saps twice as much energy.
Just like Eloras ability to enhance her physical and mental features, she is able to enhance objects on or around her. Her primary use for this skill is with weaponry. Elora often uses her enhancement magic to boost the firing power of her guns, as well as the bullets trajectory and impact, this enhancement causes MASSIVE devastation to anything and everything, Eloras bullets touch.
Elora has the ability - born of her assassins heritage, to blend and completely disappear within the shadows, no matter where they may be. The drawback to this is that, while using this ability, Elora cannot move - let alone make a sound, while cloaked by these shadows. If she moves or makes a sound around a low decibel, she becomes visible in the form of moving shadow - the faster the movement, the more visible she becomes.
Elora's heart has been tainted by the darkness of the Spades Court. Overwhelmed with hatred, malice, and the inability to feel anything good or pure. The weakness of this heart is she can never truly love, or care - she finds no issue with killing, human or other, she is cold, devoid, and insane.
Sub-abilities of Dark Heart

Black, straight, thick, down to mid-back
Tattoo of book pages fluttering to birds up the inside of left forearm
Small birthmark on her left hip
Najiba is tall and shapely, with long legs and a long neck. Her features are distinguished, with an aquiline nose, a beautifully carved full mouth, and a perfectly oval face. Her eyes are deep-set and shaded by heavy lids, and her cheekbones are high and distinctly cut. She has dark, creamy skin, except on her elbows where it is often dry and cracked. Her teeth are white but not all perfectly straight. She has a weirdly crooked big toe, so she always wears closed-toe shoes.
Najiba is always perfectly dressed and coiffed with not a hair out of place. She is usually overdressed for the occasion, though her styles tend to be somewhat conservative. She prefers to wear her hair up and elegantly styled, as it makes her appear older and more intimidating. She almost always wears black and gold.

Having to sing in public
Najiba is extremely formal and traditional. She was bred to be queen, her marriage having been arranged from her cradle, and never for an instant forgets that she is in the public eye. She is always perfectly put together, and generally overdressed, and takes care over every step she takes and every word she says. She takes pride in her intelligence and her learning, but also fears that she might someday be taken in fault for saying something wrong. She is never headstrong or impetuous, always planning out everything she does beforehand. Because of this she can come across as cold and calculating, especially in personal relationships. But to her there is no personal relationship for a queen – even her marriage is a public matter. She has never been known to show strong passions or emotions in any situation.
Knowing her own intelligence, she rarely takes the advice of others, though as a matter of form in being a monarch she pretends to listen to many others’ opinions before she makes a decision. She tries to keep strict lines of responsibility between herself and the king, never pushing herself into his realm and also never letting him inch into hers. She places her role as queen and duty to the realm above all else, even her family. Within that calculation, however, she is known to be very fair, and has never once been accused of prejudice.
Though usually serious and controlled, she can be quite witty, and knows the value of humor in winning over others. Her wit, being very bookish, would be lost on those less educated than her and her court, though.
Though her emotions are now well under control, and her priorities quite clear, Najiba once went through a turbulent time that almost overthrew her resolve. When she was a teenager, a year before her marriage, she fell in love with a most ineligible young man. He was, in fact, the stable-hand at her family estate. She came very close to running away with him, and forsaking the life she was bred to – but in the end her control and upbringing won out, and she sent the boy away forever. She still struggles with this decision, knowing she’ll never feel that way again, and wondering if her crown is worth the strict, ordered life she now leads.
"Nothing is 'personal' to royalty."
A copy of her favorite book – she’s read it dozens of times, and it’s always beside her bed.
None, but always carries or wears some kind of living plant
Plant manipulation - must have access to a living plant; cannot create plants out of nothing or bring dead plants back to life
"I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library."
Najiba was born to be royalty. The daughter of the second most important noble family in the realm, after the King, her marriage to the Prince was arranged before she was named, The instincts of a Queen were bred into her since she took her first steps, and she never knew any other life than in the spotlight. Every moment of her life was planned, every step trained and drilled for years. This preparation suited her conservative, strict personality, and she was quite conformable for most of her childhood. She had her days of rebellion, sure - once in a while she blew off lessons to go riding, or got distracted from history lessons by creating a clever acrostic in the margins of her book. But generally she was a model queen-in-the-making, and the pride of her parents.
Najiba's moment of crisis came when she was 16, a little over a year before her scheduled marriage to the then Prince of Clubs. Riding and horses were her passion, and she spent every moment she could spare from lessons in the stables. It was there she met Faris, a new groom in her family's stable. Najiba could not deny that she felt something new the first time she saw him, brushing down her noble black mare. A flutter, a tug at her heart, that threw her ordered life upside down. Suddenly night was day and wrong was right and she had no idea what she wanted anymore. She tried to keep her distance, to treat him with the same dismissive politeness as she treated all her servants, but he wasn't satisfied with that. It was as if he, too, felt they were united by some other--worldly pull, by some invisible string from his heart to hers. He laughed at her, flirted with her, let his touch linger just too long when he threw her up into the saddle. It was more than a 16 year old girl falling in love for the first time could resist. She ended by tumbling in his arms when he helped her down from her saddle, and sharing a passionate kiss. "Run away with me," he begged her, holding her cheek to his heart. It was then that reality came crashing back down. To run away would mean to give up everything she had been working toward her entire life. She didn't even know who she was if not a future queen. She had never learned anything, done anything that wasn't leading her down that path. To suddenly stray from it... would be to deny her own essence. It broke her heart, perhaps forever, but she had to say no, She begged Faris to leave the castle to leave Pip altogether. He agreed, but promised that he would never forget her.
It took months for Najiba to pull herself back together, but by the day of her wedding she was exactly the cool, emotionless, rational, unshakable bride that she had always meant to be. She entered her marriage with exactly the same mentality as she entered her responsibilities as Queen a few years later - as one duty-bound to do the best for her country. Her relationship with the King was never passionate, nor even romantic. She had not expected it to be - indeed, that would be unbecoming of such public persons as they were. She was formal, polite, pleasant, agreeable, almost mechanical, but never passionate. There were no heated kisses in the stable in this marriage. No whispered pleas to run away and forsake the world. With them, the kingdom always came first. And always would.
"Letting go doesn't mean giving up, but accepting that some things cannot be."

“… so that’s it?” She bore blankly at the multitudes of zeros.
“You are willing to pay for this extraction and extermination?” He shuffled his foot to a more comfortable standing position before resting his eyes on the shadowed individual.
“Getting rid of these two regent a-holes will land me with this much dough?” She exclaimed in glee.
“You are a generous… individual.” He arguably set his glasses down on the table to his right, underneath the dimly lit antique lamp.
“I agree to your terms.” They both smiled with a tenacious and severely macabre arch to their lips.
NIGHT OF THE LAND OF PIP’S COSTUME BALL AND AUCTION
Damon was the first on the scene, elegantly dressed in a pin-stripe tuxedo with a glittering International Klein Blue bowtie. He seemed unapproachable, bathed in the harsh yellow light of the clubs off-to-the-side seating areas. One would assume he was rather relaxed in such a reclined position, however, Damon only came off as such – he was always vigilant, and ready to strike. He surveyed the crowd, anticipating the King and Queen of Spades to show their masked-faces momentarily for the first spotlight dance of the night; it would be any moment now.
Something out of the corner of the assassin’s eye peaked his attention from the surveillance he was doing. It was a woman; however, she stood out from the rest. Clearly there to gain attention where she moved, and moved she did – with each step, the eye-catching beauty seemed to demand attention with each click of her stiletto to the polished ivory marble floor.
The lighting was dark, and vision was poor, yet Damon’s eyes could see what others could not – the threat lingering behind this woman’s hazel gaze.
Elora had found her way inside the building, after generously bribing one of the two security officers at the grand door steps. As she entered the large dimly lit ballroom, she inhaled deeply, centering herself and preparing for anything and everything that could happen tonight. It was a night of dancing and death – the dance macabre may be a more appropriate name for this ball, now that she thought about it.
With a sly smile, the woman paced forward, getting the strangest sensation of eyes on her back. She shook it off, not to attract attention, and merely progressed forward as one of the regular party patrons.
Damon had risen from the chair moments after catching this woman’s glance. There was something in the back of his mind, warning –no—telling him, that this person was a bad day to come. He didn’t need any distractions tonight, and was eager to put the gnawing gut feeling of bad-news-betty to bed. With a quickened pace, Damon caught up to the mystery woman, just as the music in the ballroom, played from a closeted orchestra hit a high-peak, signalling the entire ballroom that it was time for the first dance.
Damon felt a small, petite hand around his, and was whisked away from the woman, just as she was by another man; the two fell into a pattern-like circle of dance moves, mimicking that of the waltz, and the meringue. It was soft and subtle, but had the kick of a Louisiana pepper – the perfect combination in the world of dance.
As the notes changed, so did Damon’s dance partner, rather than the short blonde doll, he found himself now paired with a rather large masculine looking female. He smiled coyly, as to not offend. Damon wouldn’t admit it out loud, but he was rather appearance driven – those who did not fit his standards, simply did not exist.
Once more, the violins echoed from somewhere in the ballroom – their stringy notes reverberating off the walls to the patrons ears, causing the partners to once again swap.
Elora was forced away from the man she had held hands with, wishing once again to find connection. The pleasant feeling of another’s skin touching her own was enough to make the woman reel – though it was a constant need she could never endure. The people around her were never around for too long, mostly thanks to her hand.
She connected with a man almost instantly, and was taken aback. He was handsome, much more so than any of the others she had been dancing with recently. There was no mask on his face, so she was allowed to gaze into his ice blue eyes, and was momentarily lost before a rather forceful spin woke her from the daze. She could feel his larger hand on the small of her back, as their two free hands connected at eye level. There was silence between them for a moment, each one assessing the other, gauging their danger levels, trying to see if the other was a regular patron, or something else.
It was the sudden appearance of the King and Queen that broke their studious glaring. Both looked to where the two had entered from, a small door underneath the large bending staircase that most likely lead up and away to a completely separate part of the castle. The two seemed to have stilled in their dancing, as such, everyone around them followed to allow the King and Queen the entrance they demanded with their shared presence.
It was unfortunate that that presence would be short lived.
Elora and Damon both looked to each other in unison, shocked to find the other with the same determined glance on their face.
“If you will excuse me…” they both spoke in unison. Elora simply smiled, Damon fashioned a cheeky grin.
The two parted their hands and went separate ways.
Once the King and Queens’s dance had finished and the ballroom had picked up its flourishing pace of many couples rather than one, mingling and dancing, Damon began to trail the hosts. He had noticed early on that there was a seating area specifically made for the two to observe the ball, accept gifts, so on and so forth. He had also noticed that security was tight. It made sense, the King and Queen of Spades were known amongst the four courts to be the most brutal and harsh of all, especially with their alleged backdoor dealings and secret prostitution rings.
Elora couldn’t care less if the two she was looking at were surrounded by hundreds or thousands of men and woman, ready to fight her. The payday she was getting from this extermination, would set her up for life. She would be the richest assassin walking the streets, never needing to take jobs ever again. She smiled at the thought, watching through her peripheral vision as one mauve suited guards leaned over to whisper into the Queen’s open ear.
She nodded, opening her feather fan before her face, turning to the guard, and responding with a cloaked set of lips. She was intelligent, that was a given. Most individuals didn’t think to mask their faces when speaking at such a hushed volume over such a magnificent roar, however, this Queen had obviously met her fair share of lip readers.
Damon stood at the buffet table, a few feet away from the lifted wooden stage holding the King and Queen, as well as their arsenal of armed guards. An untrained eye couldn’t spot the weapons the guards had on hand, however, Damon had always been a specialist when it came to spotting and detecting concealed weapons, which made him question his own skill set as two simultaneous shots rang out through the air, landing dead-set in the torso of the King, causing him to fall limp. Damon pivoted as quickly as a buzzing bee, eager and angered, but more so curious as to who those shots has come from, and where.
He was met with a grinning figure, a woman who imposed status with two twin pistols gripped in between her perfectly manicured nails, aimed at the royals and their guards. Damon had to react fast for many reasons, however, in that moment; his only though was this ostentatious woman’s safety. With a speed that was almost unrecognizable to the human eye, Damon whipped a small concealed dagger from his jacket pocket and hurled it directly at the Queen, whose guards were too distracted by the mystery pistol woman to guard her in time.
The dagger made contact with Damon’s target – her heart. He grinned viciously, quickly gazing up at the woman who was now scowling and cursing just long enough to escape with a vicious speed that Damon had to stand in awe at. The guards who were now encasing two dead regents seemed dazed and confused, the patrons were screaming and running, and Damon, well… he was smiling, and slowly striding from the ballroom into the pitch black night.
Once the man figured he was far enough away from the chaos, he reached into his pocket for an un-lit cigar. Clipping the end with a brutish finger and thumbnail, he lifted his circular lighter to the nub, sticking the thick tube of tobacco and various otheringredients into the part of his lips, inhaling and absorbing the sweet taste of hickory and tobacco.
The enjoyment was cut to a short as Damon found his entire body shoved up against the brick wall behind him. The cigar stayed put however, as his signature grin fashioned easily on his face when he recognized the person in whom he was captive to.
“How dare you!” She spoke in a low, and threatening tone. “They were mine to kill! I had money on these two, money that would have set me for life!” She gripped his pleated shirt tighter, wrinkling the crease.
Damon simply stood there, allowing her anger to subside before he spoke himself.
“Listen, Lady, they were my targets as well. I’m not about to let some half-assed exhibitionist steal both of my targets and get away. I had money on them, just as you, and an awful lot.” He inhaled once more, the taste of hickory now melding with something from earlier that had come from the buffet – keesh tarts, perhaps.
“You… what?” Her voice came in exasperated breaks, with confusion laced in each word.
Damon placed his hand on top of hers, brushing his dry thumb across her soft ivory skin.
“Are you done?” He spoke with a relaxed tone. Without the possibility of reacting, Damon gripped the top of her hand and palm tightly, winding her entire arm counter-clockwise, disabling her grip on his shirt. He used his body weight and outward placed ankle to cork her balance, forcing the front of her body into the brick wall with just enough force to get his point across. He crossed her arm behind her back, pushing it into the plush fur coat she had draped in the crease of her inner-elbows.
Damon pushed on her body, bringing his own body almost too close for her liking.
“Let go of me, bastard.” She spit to the ground, showing that lady-like pleasantries’ truly weren’t her thing.
“But we were having so much fun.” He responded in a snarky and condescending tone, dropping his nearly finished cigar to the earth.
“I’ll let you go, if you promise to relax and let me speak.” His offer sounded sincere, and in that moment, Elora trusted him. She relaxed her body, sighing deeply before speaking in the softest tone possible, “Fine.”
With that, Damon released her, watching her face him, and once more taking in her gorgeous features.
“What is your name, ma chérie?” Damon’s tone was sultry and provocative, it conveyed everything he wasn’t willing to do, but everything he wanted to.
“E—“She hesitated momentarily. Would it be wise to introduce herself to a stranger? One she had just met after-all, one who had clearly just robbed her of a massive payday and possibly cost her the career she had been working for most all of her life? She considered the many possibilities of telling him her name. Elora wasn’t exactly a common name; therefore, he wasn’t likely to forget it, which was bad for Elora. However, Eli was too childish and, if he did enough research, easily connected to Elora. She pondered many aliases for the moment, before the silence between them became too much to handle, and her lip had received enough punishment from her acuminated teeth.
“Elora. My name is Elora.” She sighed outwardly; glad to have the relinquished feeling of this weight off her shoulders.
“I am Damon, and as I’m sure you have already guessed, I was a hired assassin targeting the King and Queen… as were you.”
She wanted to say no, to deny the accusation, but she couldn’t, it was true. Years of hiding this from her friends and family had led her to test her words many times before speaking them, but something about this man intrigued and fascinated her. She wanted more of him; she wanted to know more about him, to see more of him, to feel more of him. Shaking her head quickly, she returned to the stand-off question at hand.
“Yes, you are correct, Damon. Though, I was told that I would be the only one partaking in this little… how do you say… murdering-spree?” She chuckled, covering her clearly splitting smile with the back of her hand. Just as soon as it came, her face returned to normal. She looked to the handsome stranger in front of her, assessing his own appearance at the ball.
“I was offered 800 million to exterminate these two by my own hands and bullets. To be cut short of such a pay day, has garnered you a place at the top of my enemies list.” Her tone was cold, calculating, and ruthless. Things only moments ago, one could not fathom coming from this woman’s lips.
Damon paused, momentarily fazed and then unfazed by her change in demeanour.
“A moment, ma chérie, did you say, 800 million?” Elora seemed confused, but answered regardless, “yes, why?” Damon brought a hand up to his slicked back hair, running fingers through it with a slow, meticulous stroke. “May I see your token?” He spoke softly.
Elora didn’t have a moment to think over the request, she simply reached into the clutch she was holding ever so tightly, and removed a silver coin with a strange joker face emblem engraved on one side, and a rather gaudy chaos-star on the other. She handed it to the man, before remembering, he shouldn’t have known she had this, unless…
Damon pushed his hand into the silk lined pockets of his pin-striped trousers, retrieving a coin of exact same measure, holding the two up for comparison.
“It looks as if we’ve been played, Elora.”
“So it does…”
Damon and Elora went about killing the men who set them up. They took the money and set themselves on the throne. They rule over their kingdom. This kingdom is corrupt and the worst place to be caught in if you were not a spade. The Spades were made up of the worst of humanity. Chances and cheats, criminals killers, gamblers, assassins, and slave sellers. Sex rings and slaves. The King and Queen do not just sleep with one another however, they know of the indiscretion and sometimes encourage the other. His wife will take MN and woman. He will take any woman sometimes the Joker joins in on their fun. The Joker is just as deluded and made as they both are.

In a general sense she carries herself in a Regal and Dignified appearance when among that of her subjects. From a young age she was taught to hold herself in that mannerism so that the people would see her as strong and unbreakable. It was one of the many a lessons she prided herself in during her younger days as a member of the Diamond Court.. She is one well known for speaking her mind fully on her beliefs no matter the case. In a way it could be seen as a weakness and strength depending on whose opinion you sought upon it. When it comes to the way she interacts with her husband it is extremely playful , gentle and abundant joy. It is true he is not always the most clear headed but , it is just one of the flaws she eventually came to love in the beginning spring of their love. Yet , the gentle Queen is not always gentle.. As many known she was known by Little Red and Soulraider. She was known to be nearly maddening and unstoppable in battle & or duel. When she had her daughter though it all diminished away under lock and key to where she became a doting , caring and fully happy mother and wife. When with her King she is passionate and loving.. She is also known for being rather cunning and tricky with the fantastical aid of her Joker by her side..
Not much can be said... But , this part of her not even her King , Family and or Subjects know of. The only ones to have ever bore witness to this side are that of her Joker and Cousin. She is prone and weak to that of Blood Thirst and temporary madness. When engaged in battle she cannot hold back her want to paint all things beautiful crimson red and to watch her enemy and or victim writhe beneath her Sythe's blade.. You will be lucky if she holds it back and finds her way once more to that of reality.. It can be hard to fend it off when it is placed right before her.. Only will truly occur with enemies and or those that dare to betray the masked queen of hearts.
MoonBreaker ~ This is a necklace sported by that of Aphrodite and her beloved cousin & Childhood Friend. They both gave one to each other on Aphrodite's 12th Birthday. It has never parted from her neck since the day they were separated. At sixteen , she was sent away to join the Hearts Court and marry at that time , Prince Valentine. They have not seen one another since than and their marriages.
Engagement Ring & Wedding Band ~ A true reminder of her grand love for that of her King and a way to remind her when even they fight , argue and or grow vastly angry at one another that one glance down would serve a reminder.
Royal Crown & Regular Tiara ~ Both are great representations of her rank as Queen and the power that she truly holds in Court.
Crimson Heart ~ This particular Sythe was gifted to her at the mere age of 8.. Back than , she could barely hold the behemoth of a weapon. It was no ordinary weapon though. This one had been blessed with a truly special script magic by the King & Queen of Hearts. It had been gifted with a unique ability. When in battle , as long as the blade was able to pierce and or cut the skin a unique magic would imprint across the victims body.. If the victim is seen worthy they will be deemed another chance. But , if it see's that the heart is inpure and tainted it will instantly constrict and crush the heart. Always found upon her person and strapped to her thigh appearing to look like a small tucked away batter stick but truly more sinister than that.
Poisoned Kiss ~ A unique gun not often used by her. Only brought forth in dire need. It feeds off her own emotions and magic to fire and can easily drain her after a certain amount of fired shots.
Emotion Infusion ~ The user can infuse objects (usually a weapon), beings or powers with emotions and/or emotional energy, empowering and energizing them and allowing the user to manipulate their qualities and efficiency. The only downsides to this given ability is that she can only use it on her gun and or a set of playing cards and will drain one of her emotions rather quickly.
Emotional Energy Manipulation ~ User can create, shape and manipulate the energy that is created/generated by the emotions of every all living things in existence by capable of feeling them. They are able to increase, decrease or change it, manifest the emotional energy to physical level, etc. Can only drain love to use this ability and nothing else will do or sub in.
Pleasure/Discomfort Inducement ~ The user is able to make people feel extreme pleasure or discomfort. Used as a weapon, this power can effectively incapacitate victims with weakness and nausea. Can only do to someone extremely drawn near to her and or in the same room.. Weakens her own emotional and magic state

June counts three gems as birthstones: pearl Alexandrite, and moonstone.
Pearls are unique as they are the only gems from living sea creatures and require no faceting or polishing to reveal their natural beauty. In the early 1900s, the first successful commercial culturing of round saltwater pearls began. Since the 1920s, cultured pearls have almost completely replaced natural pearls in the market.
A relatively modern gem, Alexandrite, was first discovered in Russia in 1831 during the reign of its namesake, Czar Alexander II, and is an extremely rare chrysoberyl with chameleon-like qualities. Its color is a lovely green in both daylight and fluorescent light; it changes color to a purplish red in incandescent light.
Due to its rarity, some jewelers stock synthetic versions of this enchanting gemstone. (Synthetic gemstones are man-made alternatives to the natural material, possessing the same physical, optical, and chemical properties as the natural gemstone.)
The third birthstone for June is the moonstone. It was given its name by the Roman natural historian Pliny, who wrote that moonstone's appearance altered with the phases of the moon — a belief that held until well after the sixteenth century.
A phenomenal gemstone, moonstones show a floating play of light (called adularescence) and sometimes show either a multi-rayed star or a cat's eye.
Considered a sacred stone in India, moonstones often are displayed on a background of yellow (a sacred color) and are believed to encapsulate within the stone a spirit whose purpose is to bring good fortune. Part of the family of minerals called feldspar, moonstone occurs in many igneous and metamorphic rocks and comes in a variety of colors such as green, blue, peach, and champagne.
The most prized moonstones are from Sri Lanka; India, Australia, the United States, Mayanmar, and Madagascar are also sources.

. Along with Xena's ability to act, she is a natural born manipulator. She thinks fast, especially when caught in a tough situation, and will use these two talents to her benefit. She mostly wears heels, and so she has learned t not only walk but also run in them. Xena stretches everyday, and as a result she is so flexible she can put both her feet behind her head. She is also great a baking .
"I can do anything I want to do."
. For one, Xena struggles with admitting she is wrong or taking fault. She cannot sing, nor does she know how to speak any other language but English. She is unable to tell when people are lying to her or, ironically, when she is being manipulated. She has never been good at math or reading, despite the fact that she enjoys the latter, thanks to her being dyslexic .
"I only fear rational things."
. Xena has the fear of oblivion, of being forgotten. She wants nothing more than to be significant. She also fears needles, or more specifically injections. And, for whatever reason, she finds dummies extremely off-putting .
"I take pride in being a closed book."
. A girl of tact, Xena has perfected the art of manipulation. She is not afraid to put up an act to get what she wants, and she will go to great lengths to achieve her goals. As a sort of self-defense mechanism, she has developed a great deal of wit to accompany her sarcastic tendencies. Most people would describe her as just plain mean, mainly because she is only outwardly kind to those she deems worthy. She is insanely honest, and this makes her come off as rather rude. Xena knows how to be very charming, when she wants to be. Because she is usually looking out for herself, if she sees things are not going in her favor she will switch sides immediately, just to be on the winning side. She's calculating and, above all, Xena knows how to appear. She knows who she needs to be in each situation, and will change to fit the role .
"Only a few people know who I really am."
. As a child of neglect, Xena truly desires attention. She will go to great lengths to get it, whether it be negative or positive attention. However, she also wants to be loved, or rather to be significant to someone. This makes her very easily manipulated, because if someone shows her even the slightest bit of affection she will become unreasonably loyal to them. She is extremely brave, likely a result of her fending for herself most of her life. Also for this reason, Xena has grown to be rather selfish. She's been taught by the world that if she doesn't look out for herself, no one will. Independent and determined, Xena believes that if she puts the work ins he will get whatever she wants .

"I do have some magic, though I don't prefer to use it often."
. Disruption Xena has the ability to disrupt Mechanical objects. Whether it be a computer or a gun, she can cause it to stop working.
Limitation: She can only disrupt one object at any given time. Also, when using this ability she can not use any other kind of magic. Can also cause migraines, if used for an extensive amount of time. .
. Phasing The ability to phase through solid matter, such as table. Simply put, this is the ability to walk through walls.
Limitation: Xena cannot use any kind of power if she is phasing through things. She will not be able to pick things up. The longer she uses this ability the more blurry her vision becomes. Also, after use, her whole body is often very sore. She can only be in her phasing state for a consecutive ten minutes .
. Enhanced Strength Xena is much stronger than many girls her size. To keep this ability working well, however, she does need to work out often. Her limit is only five hundred pounds. .
. Shadow Walking Potion This potion takes up to twenty four hours to brew, and gives the consumer the ability to travel by shadows. The potion recipe has been passed down in Xena's family for generations.
Limitations: The consumer will not be able to speak or touch anyone while Shadow Walking. They can only jump from one shadow to another, and cannot be seen by anyone or anything. They themselves also cannot be touched. The potion lasts for a period of twenty minutes. Xena seems to have an allergic reaction every time she uses it, and often gets a rash that remains for about two days after use. .
"Oh, see, now that's none of your business."
Xena was the first child born to Margaret and Jameson Rose, with a baby boy following her only two years later. She was a happy child, though she never developed a strong bond with either of her parents. Her father was a knight, and so he was away often, and her mother couldn't be bothered with the children she brought into this world. Often times, Margaret was only seen in public with her children when she went to the black market, in hopes of someone taking pity on her and giving her a bargain.
This wasn't unusual in the Kingdom of Spades. Truthfully, Xena was lucky that her parent's kept her, rather than leaving her int he gutter like many Spade commoners did. She was only seven when her parents were caught in a house fire and killed. Her brother's body was never recovered, but he had also disappeared, and so there was rumor that he had set the fire to kill his awful family. Whether this was true or not, Xena was now all alone in the most horrible of kingdoms.
For a time she thought of traveling to a new Kingdom- perhaps the Kingdom of Hearts- where there were kinder souls who might be more willing to take her in. She never got the nerve to leave, however, simply because she knew how Spades worked. She was one of them, so she knew their mindset, their behaviors. She got very good at stealing very quickly. When she was ten she met a boy, Harold, and they became partner's in crime for a while.
Harold had knowledge of hand-to-hand combat, for reasons Xena never found out. In exchange for fighting lessons, Xena taught him how to sew and steal. By the time she was thirteen she was very skilled in the art, and was able to defend herself- which was good, for a girl coming into age. Especially when she lived on the streets of the Spade Kingdom.
One night, Harold disappeared, and the next day Xena witnesses him being executed in the streets by a pair of guards. This sent her into a stage of depression, having again lost the only person in her life. She became reckless- which eventually led to her imprisonment. She became a slave tot he King and Queen, serving them for six years.
Under the rule of King Damon and Queen Elora, Xena started to become defiant. This led to a meeting with the King- which did not go as expected. She assumed she was about to be executed, but the King seemed to take a liking to her. Instead, she was appointed as his Ace, to serve him and only him. She has been Damon's trusted Ace since she was twenty, and has grown to love her status.
"People change, okay? They grow."
Oh, great! I think I'm going to claim Jensen Ackles for my FC. ♥
Ardal Cornelius Cormac
Name Meaning: Ardal: intelligent, noble Cornelius: linked with saints
Alias: King of Letters, Clubber, Earth Lord
Gender: Male ⌉ Age: 26 ⌉ Birthday: September 8th ⌉ Zodiac Sign: Virgo ⌉ Bloodtype: O ⌉
Birthstone: Sapphire ⌉ Court: Clubs ⌉ Position: King
Weight: 154 lbs
Hair: Short dark brown hair with swept back bangs
Distinguishing Marks: Small club shaped birthmark on the back of his neck
General Appearance: Ardal has olive skin and dark hair. He is typically seen with facial hair that is neatly kept at all times (this also holds true for his hair). Ardal is medium weight with broad shoulders and no obvious muscle, but is actually very strong. He happens to be a shorter than his Queen, a topic that he's a bit sensitive about.
Ardal tries to match his Queen's preferred dress code and is typically seen in formal-esque attire. Unlike Najiba, however, Ardal tends to be more laid back and can also be seen in some casual wear.
Typical Court Wear
Formal Events (ignore the background)
Traveling Wear (non-FC)
Physical Strengths: above average power, medium amount of agility, great stamina
Physical Weaknesses: not very flexible, crappy balance, not very fast
Allies: Queen of Clubs and Club Court
Hobbies: Writing, making puns and lame jokes, drawing doodles/cartoons and hiding them in various books in the Library, reading
Likes: to be called Corny (he finds it hilarious), Najiba's teas, learning new things, stargazing in the observatory
Dislikes: the ocean, wearing ties(if he has to wear one he takes it off immediately when he can), and he doesn't like the taste of carrots so he uses them to bribe the horses.
Talents: tongue twisters, listening,
Inabilities: Despite his love for writing, Corny has horrible handwriting, a trait he oddly shares with his Queen(cursive is ironically his only legible writing). He can't tell one side of the kingdom from another, even when given a map(bad sense of direction) and despite his ability he is incapable of winning at chess.
Fears: Falling off a horse, Najiba getting hurt, heights
Mental Strengths: Mentally tough(can deal with a lot), tenacious, resourceful
Mental Weaknesses: prone to attachment, can't focus for long periods of time, low adaptability
General Personality: Ardal tends to be a very level headed ruler, not one to stir up too much trouble. True to suit, he rules logically alongside his Queen, having her input in mostly everything. To his subjects he seems very happy-go-lucky, quick with a joke just to lighten someone's day and he and Najiba seem to be very compatible.
Inner Personality: Ardal inner self isn't much different as his outer since he likes to express himself fully and wears his heart on his sleeve. The only things he tries to keep from people is his insecurity about being shorter than his Queen and the fact that their marriage will never be more than what it is. His height is more of a pride thing, most people don't even really notice the difference especially with the way Ardal carries himself. As for his marriage, Ardal knew going in that love was not part of the equation and instead only sees Najiba in a mostly platonic way; it's just on those occasions when she pulls away from his touch that he gets a sinking feeling in his gut.
Special Items: Ink pot and quill set passed down from the generations, Record journals: one to keep track of the duration of his ruling and the other from his father's reign.
Weapons: Stone club that helps channel his magic, plus a pretty good head smasher at close range.
Magics: Earth Manipulation (think Earthbending from Avatar but to a lower degree). Can only control natural earth and raw metals, nothing made or modified by humans. Control limited up to 3x his own weight in earth/metal at once. Can also draw strength from the earth but can only be done a single time every day.
Ardal was born into royalty so it was expected of the eldest and only son of the previous King of Clubs. As soon as the Queen discovered that her first born was a boy, she and the King began to search the kingdom for a suitable wife to act as Queen by his side. After making a long, educated decision they decided to pick the daughter of the second most noble family in the Club Kingdom: Najiba. And that was how Ardal, just a few months shy of turning one himself, got engaged to a newborn (who at the moment of the final decision wasn't even named yet). This is how it was in the Club Kingdom. Marriages were contracts, if there happened to be love then that was a bonus but it was never required.
And Ardal had learned this the hard way. As the two grew, they spent a quality amount of time together getting to know one another; since they run in the same social circle they would see each other even when they were scheduled to. The young Prince of Clubs was aware of the social standard linked with their union, yet he still hoped to have more of a connection with Najiba. When that failed to happen by the time they were to get married, Ardal realized it never was going to. The first few years of marriage were a bit hard, but he ultimately enjoyed her company and they made a good team. Now he doesn't mind it as much, but still likes to make her smile.
Name Meaning: bright light
Alias: Mayhem, Flashy Ace
Gender: Female ⌉ Age: 21 ⌉ Birthday: June 25th ⌉ Zodiac Sign: Cancer ⌉ Bloodtype: B
Birthstone: Alexandrite/Pearl ⌉ Court: Diamonds ⌉ Position: Ace
Weight: 121 lbs
Hair: Brown with streaks of blonde. Typically changed between that and black. Shaved into the back of her head but full diamonds instead of triangles
Distinguishing Marks: Diamond Tattoo on right thigh
General Appearance: Meira has fair skin and eyes that seem to shift from green to blue depending on the lighting. Her hair is almost always seen up (unless she absolutely has to wear it down) for practicality and to exhibit the design she has shaved on the back of her head.
Meira loves to wear anything with bell/flare sleeves (mostly to house her blades) and short bottoms in order to show off her tattoo. She wears massive amounts of jewelry and wears a ring on her left hand that is visually similar to the Commerce Ring worn by her King and Queen, but of course much more cheaply made. Her eye makeup tends to be a bit heavy, but she doesn't really care.
Typical Court Wear
Physical Strengths: great coordination and agility, relatively flexible
Physical Weaknesses: low stamina and power, below average coordination (can't use weapons and magic at the same time)
Allies: King of Diamonds and Diamond Court
Hobbies: experimenting with her powers, shopping at the Marketplace, praticing with her blades
Likes: showing off to kids, shiny things(she is a girl after all), gumdrops
Dislikes: birds(especially the ones who "sing"), mushrooms, showing her wrists and shoulders
Talents: dealing with children, being aware of her surroundings, and making up stories
Inabilities: Meira is incapable of speaking in front of large crowds and gets very nervous which causes her to stutter a bit. She has difficulty retaining information and does multiple exercises to help her memory. Regardless she still has to write everything down and keeps the papers in a special pocket in her collar. She also finds it hard to just relax and enjoy the day; with Meria there's always something to worry about.
Fears: Not being strong enough to protect her King, having a breakdown in front of the whole Court, the possibility of having to rule the kingdom if the Queen dies.
Mental Strengths: Self validating, prepared for the worst, high pain threshold
Mental Weaknesses: prone to stress, emotionally unstable, low patience
General Personality: Meria is a typical member of the Diamond Court, so she's more than a little spoiled. She likes to have new things so is often found at the Marketplace in her (limited) free time. To people in other kingdoms, she comes off a bit brash and bitchy and she has been accused of being a snob on more than one occasion.
Inner Personality: The Diamond Ace, though prepared, is actually anxious the majority of the time. She tends to keep her guard up and her eyes on what's going on around her. She lives for herself, but can be her own worst enemy. She judges herself rather harshly on some key points and stresses over things that aren't important.
Special Items: Wannabe Commerce Ring given to her by her mother when Meira expressed her interest in becoming an Ace. Can absorb low amounts of magic but cannot grant access to the Underground Tunnels.
Weapons: 8 inch wrist blades (smaller than this) that rest on the back of her wrists and are concealed under her sleeves.
Magics: Pyrotechnic Projection (think Jubilee from X-men). Meira can shoot out firework-looking projections and flash bombs from her hands. Projections from right hand are strong than those from her left. Good for blinding enemies and creating chances to escape. Only harmful at a close range and ultimately nonlethal. Great at parties.
Meira grew up in a well off family in what the fellow subjects of the Diamond Kingdom would consider middle class (but still wealthy compared to middle class in other kingdoms). She was the only girl in a mess of brothers and her parents were scared that she would spend more than they could afford on any personal vice.
When the opposite happened and her brothers spent almost every dime of their parents' wealth, Meira took it upon herself to remedy that. She had been looking into becoming the court Ace for awhile(working somewhere as beautiful as the Diamond Castle was a dream of hers) and this only encouraged the decision. Now she helps support her parents and gives her all to protect the King despite her lower level power. She took up using her blades a few months after gaining her position, since she hadn't gotten a hold of her projections just yet. At the begining she hadn't used any sort of arm guards, so in result her wrists and upper arms are badly scared. Meira hates the way these look and therefore covers them up at every opportunity.
♣ Of the Kingdom of the Clubs ♣
Friedrich von Eckstein
Eckstein is made up of the German word for “corner” and “stone”
Ace of Clubs
"I am the personal butler to the king. I need to be as fit as I can be."
Dark brown and wavy
A pale, round birthmark on his back
Mr. Fritz is sort of a slender man. His formal attire for serving his monarch consist of a black suit over a white shirt and black pants. He has a voice that nearly always deep. His accent makes him pronounce i sounds like ee sounds and j sounds like y sounds. He writes with his right hand
As a butler, this man can carry a keg up many flights of stairs. He has strong legs. Mr. Fritz also had a good heart and lungs, so he can work without getting tired for a while. He can ride horse throughout the kingdom
He can barely stretch even for his life. His left arm is weaker than his right
attending theatre productions; criticising theatre productions; reading books on history, whether they're fiction or non-fiction; dancing; solving word problems; chess; and drawing maps
Power, suffrage, the Clubs, industry, ironically nature, the noblemen and noblewomen, science
The Spades, excess nature, strawberries, horror stories, wolves
Dancing; Strategy; Playing Chess; Persuasion; and lying
playing tic-tac-toe; reading faces; firing weaponry;
The Spades, loss of power
Mr. Fritz is a conservative and formal moderate. He takes in others suggestion and analyses them to see if they are better, though he rather likes to keep to his opinion since he believes that it is correct. He keeps his personal life away from politics. Friedrich believes that true history doesn't come from one, reliable source, but multiple sources of varying biases and viewpoints.
Mr. Fritz is an imperialist. He has a vested interest for improving relations with the Diamonds and worsening the relations with the Spades. He has the belief of a united Empire between the Clubs and the Diamonds, using their military and economic power to be supreme over the other kingdoms.
While he keeps his political and personal life apart, he doesn't always. There has been a time back when he had a relationship with a lieutenant in the military, sadly that ended with bad consequences once it was found out.
Friedrich keeps with him a silver pocketwatch. It is from his father. It's how he checks his time.
Mr. Fritz knows how to fence from his university years. However, he carries no sword with him usually.

-Might seem pompous to other people who can't figure out a solution to a problem
Born into a family of nobles, Friedrich von Eckstein was able to become a smart kid. When he was 18, he was able to attend the University of Particulars. That's where he got his interest into politics. He joined a student association that believed in a powerful Kingdom of the Spades. Mr. Fritz believed in it as well. When he graduated from the university, he had the interest of joining the government.
With his skills, he was able to join in on the state at the age of 22. However, as being the personal butler to the king. To him, while it meant that he would be carrying bags and making beds, it had a lot of potential. He gives the news from the joker to the king, and he walks around the kingdom warning the neighbors of an upcoming danger.
Mr. Fritz tries to keep his personal and political life separate, but there was a time where that wasn't always. When he was 24, he formed a secret relationship with a lieutenant in the military. It was kept a secret for over a year before being discovered, and being called a scandal. An investigation and trial was held. While there was little evidence to show that there was any corrupt action going on, it ended with the lieutenants resignation, three soldiers resigning for aiding in keeping the relationship secret, and Mr. Fritz being put under house arrest for a month, not to mention his and a part of the kingdom's reputation being stained. Sure it was consequential, but Friedrich felt that it was worth it. Sadly, he and the former lieutenant stopped seeing each other after the trial.
Now Friedrich keeps to his political life. He regarded the rise of the new king and queen of the Spades as a Coup d'état, but he keeps that too himself. He has secretly looked at the idea of a united Diamonds and Clubs kingdom, as he still has his college thought of a greater Clubs, but he hasn't told it to anyone yet. He fears what would happen if the Spades found out about it.
More shall be worked on
So how should we do the magic? You mentioned in the descriptions the rings would have special powers? Do you have pre-planned magic/powers for the kings/queens, or should we come up with these?
Oh, the rings don't have special automatic powers that you automatically get. You can choose whatever power you wish regarding the
1. Meaning of your suit.
2. Not OP
3. 1:1 ratio as mentioned in the character sheet.
The rings are just there to give you access to the underground tunnels, which supply all magical energy so your characters can perform chosen abilities with ease.
Yes, magic does run out sometimes, which is why you need to go to the tunnels.
I'm not done with the descriptions of the thread yet because I'm busy so you guys don't know the little details but I'll get there by the weekend!
