A long time ago, when Musentia was nothing more than a fledgling realm, darkness threatened to encompass the world. This darkness took the form of wretched, demonic beasts that preyed on the flesh of men. The people of Musentia struggled to fight against these monsters for many years, but they lost more and more ground every time man and beast clashed. These people fervently prayed to their deity, Yhirel. For many years, He remained silent as the beasts continued to ravage Musentia.

Just when the shadows were about to engulf the rest of humanity, Yhirel presented himself to ten individuals whose hearts rang with desperation to help their kind. He bestowed upon them divine weapons that would aid them in their onslaught against the monsters. But even then, victory would not come easily to these heroes.

When the heroes reached the source of the monsters, a vicious creature known as Azaral, they engaged in battle for six days. It was on the seventh day that the ten Divine Heroes were able to slay Azaral and finally bring peace to Musentia. The Days of Ruin were finally over.

The Divine Heroes eventually went their own ways, staking claims to territories all over the realm. With time, there would be conflicts and tension between the three nations of Musentia, as expected. But the Divine Heroes’ bloodlines ran true through history, and their weapons were either passed down from generation to generation or hidden away from the eye of man.

But this story is not one of the past. This story is one of the present, where a new generation thrives for a place in this world. While the Irinduil Monastery maintains its religious influence over Musentia, it is also known for its prestigious Officers Academy. The royalty and nobility of the three nations of Musentia send their heirs to the Officers Academy in order for them to learn the art of warfare and make sure they are ready to succeed the previous generation. Even commoners are able to attend if they have the coin or are spurred by sponsors. The Officers Academy is divided into two academic houses, the Red Chimeras and the Green Falcons.

Our story will focus on the Red Chimeras. Our characters will strive to hone their skills, achieve their goals, pass their tests, forge relationships with other students, and compete with the Green Falcons in tournaments. For now, the students have little to worry about, but their bright futures can change at any moment...



Information about the three nations of Musentia can be found in the Traveler's Guide to Musentia.


The people of Musentia worship a single deity, Yhirel. The Church of Yhirel is composed of many devout followers who believe that they are to be granted a peaceful, fulfilling afterlife if they are to follow his word. The Church also revere three Saints, who were said to have spread Yhirel's word in ancient times. In the Irinduil Monastery, both students and faculty are expected to stick to Yhirel's teachings.


Those who have Crests have the blood of the Ten Divine Heroes flowing through their veins. In Musentia, Crests are desirable to have, as they are the bonafide symbol of status. A person who has a Crest, whether a Major or Minor one, have certain aptitudes for fighting, the arts, or so forth. However, those of noble blood do not always have Crests; sometimes, the presence of Crests can skip generations or appear in one sibling and not the other. Lords and ladies of Houses are often interested in marrying their children off to Crest bearers in order to increase the presence of Crests in their bloodline.


Located on a plateau, the Irinduil Monastery was built roughly five hundred and fifty years ago. It is perched on a mountaintop from which one can see the three nations of Musentia. At its base lies forestlands and a bustling town that bears a lake and hot springs. Students and faculty are free to visit the town as they so wish. The Irinduil Monastery is divided into specific areas, which are listed below.













The Divine Calendar is used all over Musentia. There are twelve months, and each of them bear between twenty-eight and thirty-one days. It is currently the 28th of the Traveler Moon, Divine Year 781.




Please note that this is a 18+, high-casual/semi-advanced roleplay. While I don't expect novels for posts, I would like for you to please take your time creating your characters and writing your posts. We all make mistakes, and that's fine, but if your post gives me a headache to read, then that'll be an issue.
Do not ghost us. If you need to step away from the RP, please let me know.
I will listen to people's suggestions and ideas for plot development and etc. However, my final decision is law.
Please read the OOC. There is a ton of information that is already set in stone.
While we do have a handful of people, I don't want you guys to constantly pump out posts. Thus, we will be running on a semi-cyclic posting schedule. This means you should try to wait for a couple of people to post first before typing another post. If the person we're waiting for doesn't post in a week or so, then we may move on.
I get that we're all busy at times, but I would love it if players post once or twice a week.
Not all characters are going to have Crests or be nobility.
Try to keep characters balanced! This means that if there's four girls and only one dude, then you should probably make a dude.
Fill out all portions of the character sheet, please. Also, please follow the format of the character sheet.
I am a fun-loving person. I love it when we talk about things and make fun of characters, create ships, theories, and relationships. Don't hesitate to reach out to me for anything you need!
Have fun~

(minus the eyepatch)


[Full Name]
Maelys Ernst Pleiades

[Alias]
Mael (preferred name)

[Affiliation]
The Syndicate of Cretus

[Starting Class]
Noble

[Status]
Heir to House Pleiades

[Crest]
Major Crest of Pleiades

[Age]
Seventeen years old

[Date of Birth]
22nd of the Hallowed Moon, Divine Year 764

[Appearance Information]
Mael stands at a modest 182 centimeters tall (or 5'11), and weighs around 79 kilograms (or around 175 pounds). He is said to bear a great resemblance to his grandfather in the latter's youth; his long facial features are well-sculpted, his strikingly natural charm attributed to his noble heritage. Many have observed that his thin eyebrows often narrow to give off sudden sharp expressions, his light blue eyes sharing that same articulation. He has medium to long, wavy dark brown hair that he prefers to comb back, going great lengths to style and preserve it each day. Spending plenty of his years basking in the sun, his skin complexion is moderately tan, considered an 'undesirable' trait for someone of his stature and background.

While Mael is a fairly slim person, his attention to conditioning has kept his body in a healthy, athletic shape, which he actively works to develop. He wears the standard Officer's Academy uniform in his own personal manner, preferring to keep the jacket loose and unbuttoned (similar to Sylvain) while folding the sleeves up to his elbows unless the weather is too cold or in the case of required formalities. He has tribal markings imprinted on his arms from the biceps to wrists, and wears a necklace with two colorful feathers and a keepsake attached.

[Personality]
Despite his heritage, Mael is unlike the usual pompous and superfluous attitude that most nobles portray towards their associates and subjects, preferring separation from formality in his everyday interactions. He has been a habitual troublemaker since early adolescence, never seeming to learn from all of the past scolding and reprisal. When the young man doesn't have the urge to scheme another one of his antics, he likes to take the passing days in stride, enjoying casual conversation behind a good meal. He is genuinely friendly and approachable, always looking to befriend others and be within the presence of his companions.

Though, when it comes to certain things such as sparring or contests of any sort, he can become fairly competitive against his rivals. Mael is devoted to his conditioning, possessing a strange fixation on becoming the strongest boxer and strengthening himself tirelessly to meet this ambition. To this end, he will accept any sort of challenge regardless of how ridiculous they may be, simply to prove his own power to himself, with the exception of monotonous tasks and chores.

[Personal History]
Born Maelys Ernst Pleiades, he is the grandson of Farfalle Roose Pleiades, the only Crest-bearing child of the noble family's bloodline. He was declared the heir to House Pleiades after his father, Bach, fell out of Farfalle's inheritance from the absence of their Crest. While Mael was considered his grandfather's child foremost than his own father, their enormous wealth removed any amount of difficulty from his upbringing, and the young boy found himself in the presence of caretakers and tutors more often than his own family. He would frequently prove to be a troublesome youth, for he would slip out of their extravagant abode to escape the 'boring' instruction against his grandfather's decree to play with the other children.

Through all of the stern reminders of the destiny set out for him, Mael accepted the inevitable responsibility of House Pleiades' future on his frail shoulders, however reluctant the boy may have been. His childhood was rife with marriage proposals and promised betrothals to many princesses due to their wealth, but Farfalle refused them all, citing anything short of perfection as meaningless to their name. At the age of ten, he was taken under the wing and personal instruction of his grandfather to undergo the Path of Pleiades, testing the mettle of his birthright when the time would come. Mael would be sent to the Officers Academy after his grandfather's sudden illness prevented the continuation of his grooming, where House Pleiades would await the return of a true man.

Hmm, so I had an idea to go for a commoner who bears a crest. That is because, unbeknownst to him, either he's the bastard of one of the noble houses, or someone in his family was and the capability to get a crest was passed down that way. Not sure how far back the connection goes. Anyway. He's caught thieving/spying/doing other shady stuff in a prominent noble's house and gets caught. But as they realize he has their family crest and their own heir(s) don't, he's adopted and presented as their legitimate son who they've just kept away from spotlight all these years. So this scoundrel who knows nothing about nobility or customs ends up being sent to the academy and having to play the part of a noble heir, ayy.

I might reuse an older character (with appropriate tweaks) since he fits the role quite well, or make a new one. Haven't yet decided, but got the basic idea down.

Also! Could I reserve house Sylmare? I feel like the whole atmosphere of sabotage in Cretus would fit my plans the best. The house could claim they kept their crest-bearing heir a secret in fear of assassination, after all.

Speaking of, his eventual class will be Assassin, so sword/bow focus.

Err, with all that said, would I mark him down as commoner or noble class?

@Zoey White Alrighty, so I've looked over your character and I think there are things that should be changed.

- Her name. I see that Critical Role reference. While I've listened to some of their podcasts and love all the characters I don't think that you should reference that here. I would prefer if you changed it.

- Her personality. It isn't really fitting of a noble to act in such a way, especially one that's related to the Speaker of Mordlind. Sherry is sassy in her own right, but she doesn't joke around and takes things pretty seriously.

- Fighting Style/Equipment. There's no such thing as a Training Staff in FE. If you want her to focus on the lance, it must abide to FE's weapon rules. A bendy lance is kind of useless. She'd use a Training Lance instead.

- Her backstory. The Officers Academy isn't really a place where people are sent to be taught how to be proper. Individuals go there willingly because of its prestige and because of how the Officers Academy prepares them in becoming heads of Houses, nations, or well-rounded nobility. That being said, she's going to have to WANT to be there-- there's no one stopping her from leaving.

- Other tidbits. I find it amusing that she's not a fan of the religious types if she's gonna be residing in the vicinity of a cathedral. Either she'll have to keep it under wraps or she's not gonna be liked by the NPCs. Also, refrain using the term "badass" in her likes and instead try to be more specific.

Okay, I think I like Braelynn too much to just abandon her. I made some changes to her personality, and I think I like her better for this RP. Let me know what you think.
