In a land known as the Apura Kingdom, there was a king who would be considered unique. He was kind yet tough. He was strict yet fair. He was cold yet he also cared. Some outsiders would think this odd, but to those within his borders, this was a rather normal thing for the king to be. They were used to it. They were safe for many years because of how he was. He was quite the ruler.

The king had four daughters. They were his only children. Eventually, word got to him about the sons, the princes of the four other kingdoms, being old enough to marry, and right around the time his daughters were old enough to marry as well. This gave him an idea. This was an idea his daughters would not agree with. However, they would not have a say in the matter, as this would be of great importance to not only the king, but their entire kingdom as well.

The king planned to marry off all four of his daughters. Each kingdom would get to decide which one of his daughters married their prince. This, in the kings' mind, would ensure a political alliance with the other four kingdoms, binding all of them together as one land, at least in a way. This was sure to provide great safety and security for them all, or so the king thought.

The daughters all agreed on one thing. They all thought that they should not have to do this. But, it was for the sake of their kingdom. They would become convinced that they would be selfish if they refused at one point. And so, they would all reluctantly agree to it. They could only hope that they would grow to at least be friends with their husbands. They did not get their hopes up about falling in love or anything like that.

The king would send out letters, one to each of the four other kingdoms kings/queens. The arrangements would be made. The princes would arrive in the kingdom to select a princess to be their bride. They were in the same boat as the princesses, but they did their best to hide it as they grew up in families were proper behavior, bloodlines, and seeking approval of the other royals was important and quite common. After all, arranged marriages were common in the royal families and even traditional. They would arrive in the kingdom, along with their parents/families, soon enough.

That would be the day it would all begin.

There would be a big fanfare. The citizens would become excited upon the arrival of the princes, one of them being the potential next king of their kingdom, depending on which daughter would be queen. Those royal families would be welcomed in with open arms by the citizens. The princesses , however, would not be as pleased about it, for obvious reasons. But, they would do nothing to upset their father or their people, nor do anything that might harm their kingdom in some way.

There would be a big celebration in honor of the guests. There would be a grand gala of sorts. The princesses would be expected to dance with those princes, specifically whichever ones they were to marry. This would be quite the affair. The announcement of who was to marry who would be made that very evening, to the people of course. The king, and father of the princesses, would be the one to make that announcement of course.



The decision of the arranged marriages would come at a time when a rogue king from a far off land from their continent would decide to declare war on them. He blamed them all for his sons' betrayal when he chose to cast aside his royal title and marry a common girl from one of their lands, after meeting her at a sort of gala-like affair during his time there. It had been a business trip his father would grow to regret allowing him to go on. Anyway, that anger, and his son running off to elope, was what made the king desire revenge, as well as have a need to destroy them all.

This would create more incentive for the princesses to go through with what their father wanted them to do. They still wished to marry for love and follow their hearts, but to do so may just cost them. What were they to do? They were trapped, in a sense, with no way out, or so they thought.

Would they follow their hearts and risk a war? Will they go through with the marriages and risk their own unhappiness? Or will a miracle happen that changes everything?

Time will tell.

character sheet:
appearance: Black hair, warm brown skin, brown eyes. Quite short and decently muscled. Looks very much like her late mother.


name: Jinayah

age: 17

bio(optional): As the youngest of four, Jinayah has enjoyed some degree of freedom. She is a strange sort of princess, well-known for demanding boys' clothes since she was old enough to express it. While she will wear gowns on formal occasions, most of the time she can be found in specially tailored tunics and pants, down at target practice. Her mother passed on due to sudden illness, which may be part of the reason she is allowed her freedoms and odd habits.

role in the story: Princess to be married off, I suppose.

other(optional): I will try to make something with her 'boy' clothes as soon as I can.

Character sheet

Appearance:

Name: Sigismund Alrich Merving

Age: 20

Bio:
The people of Gallatria was not only well-known for their fine winemaking and artistry. The high number of its population combined with their proud military tradition had been putting them into constant warfare with their neighbors. Though the ancestors of their leaders had never aspired for unification of their realms or even expansion, the lords of the Merving clan had a different idea. Beginning from a humble principality, the realm of Merving had been growing for several generations that its rule now encompassed the whole lands of Gallatrian-speaking people. Sigismund's great-great-grandfather was merely a Marquis of Mervmarch, but now the young prince had been appointed as a potential inheritor of a far greater title, the High-King of Gallatria.

The tales of his brave ancestors had inspired Sigismund to do better. Having so little interest in trivialities of life, the prince surrounded himself with veteran generals, martial artists, senior treasurers, and retired diplomats. Eager to learn from them, he committed himself to become their apprentice. The current High King had been concerned with the ambition and sternness of his son. He was surprised that the elderly Steward of Mervmarch had been delegating his duties to the prince for years in which somehow he had been able to conduct it very well. Sigismund was eager to prove to his father that he was ready to become the lord of the land and requested a demesne for himself to rule.

Instead of granting his son a demesne, the King decided to ease his son from military and political matters. The King insisted that his son would take another couple of years to study and appreciate the subject of arts of the prince's liking. The King also demanded his son to take a woman as his consort. Only then, the King would grant his son a personal domain to rule. Obviously, Sigismund was quick to notice of the news from the neighboring Kingdom of Apura, brought to himself by his own Spymaster.

Sigismund realized that the other kingdoms would take advantage of this situation. In his vision, the realm of Apura looked like a banquet being prepared for a feast. Gallatria had to take a portion, as significant as it is necessary. Yet, care must be taken for it to only pay the least cost if any violent scramble should ever happen.

Role: A Prince

Other: Expect similarity with any characters from Frank Herbert's Dune

character sheet

name: Vyarin Kremazov

appearance: Tall and incredibly built, Vyarin is the model of a warrior. Indeed, his form is the sort that would take up an entire doorway he would happen to pass through. In accordance with the religious reforms of half a century past, he keeps his blond hair shaved down to fuzz. His face is similarly shaved. However, most notable about him is the rag that obscures his left eye, wrapped around his head, that conceals the gaping remains of his eye.

age: 19

bio: Vyarin was born to a most impressive pedigree. His father, the famed Zarrir "Usurper-of-Tyrants", had recently before Vyarin's birth led a successful rebellion against the so-called "Western Overlords" from across the Zpina mountain range. The Western Overlords' memory has been intentionally lost, with Zarrir having ordered all record of them destroyed and declaring that any who speak of them in his court have their tongues cut out. Thus, Vyarin's birth, coinciding rather neatly with the liberation, was considered highly auspicious by many. His name, "Vyarin", even means "of freedom" or "freeborn" in the now-dead Old Prozdy language. On his birth, Vyarin was given the courtesy titles of "Prince of Princes" (a title shared by his father), and "First Lord of the League". The League of which the second title represents is the nominally equal partnership of the great many rulers and nobles who had risen up alongside Prozdy against the Western Overlords, but in reality serve as effective vassals to Prozdy.

Vyarin grew up among the militant court of his father. In the Prozdy culture, strength and stoicism were the highest virtues, and nobles who shied away from military pursuits were considered illegitimate to rule. Thus, Vyarin was given a rigorous education in fighting with a great variety of weapons, strategy and tactics, and a number of traditional sports. Thus, he grew up strong, accustomed to physical strain and resistant to the fear of death. At least, that was the visage he put on for the court to see. In truth, he found he tired often of the singleminded pursuit of conflict and victory that Prozdy society seemed to worship, and found he was rather curious regarding a great many subjects not taught to him. However, there wasn't much to be done about that. His father Zarrir was an iron-fisted ruler, grim and incredibly competent, and would likely stand for no deviation on his son's part.

It was on Vyarin's coming-of-age day that his life changed rather oddly. During the celebrations, one of the princes of the League inadvertently insulted Vyarin before all the attendees. Zarrir, in a fit of rage, demanded that Vyarin and the prince duel with shashka to the death before the entire crowd. Neither were particularly interested in fighting this duel, and the prince offered to apologize, Zarrir's command was absolute, declaring that should either refuse this duel, they would be declared cowards and stripped of all honours. Eventually, after some heavy debate, a compromise was declared in which the two would fight only to first blood. The duel commenced, and ended when Vyarin fell forward, screaming and clutching at the left side of his face. Quickly, doctors were called, but the surgery was brutal, and perhaps did more damage to his eye than even the blade. Eventually, it was declared that Vyarin was blind in one eye. Zarrir, fearing for his son's life and his own court's stability, sent Vyarin away on the premise that he find a spouse.

role in the story: Prince and suitor
