Ceras Novaelin was practically panting as he made the sharp turn and ran down the next street. He couldn't look back to see how far behind his pursuers were, but he knew they were close from the sound of armored boots hitting concrete. Quickly he dashed down an alley and out the other end then turned right, he had to lose them or he was going to die. An arrow flew past his head and he knew archers had joined the chase in the city streets. Overhead the moon gave the only light over the city..everything was dark and silent except for the sounds of city soldiers yelling and trying to organize themselves to catch their target.
Ceras was the leader of the opposition to the government of Troas, a rather large city-state. He had taken 10 men with him to burn down armories of the militia, and were caught in a trap. His companions were either captured or dead, and now he was trying to escape without leading these men to the hideout of his other companions. He would have stayed and fought to the death, but the rebellion counted on his leadership to continue. But if him living meant causing the unnecessary death of his friends..he would rather be run down and killed.
A sudden loud and rapid sound of twanging broke a moment of silence. Arrows flew around Ceras and past him, into the soldiers trailing behind. Screams of shock and pain erupted behind him and Ceras knew help had arrived. Even in the dark, Ceras could now make out the black figures ahead of him in the street. As soon as he had made it past them another volley of arrows launched across the street and then the group surrounded Ceras and took him to an abandoned house down the street.
So basically. Ceras is the leader of a group of rebels who are opposing the rule of the king of Troas, a large city-state. I will play Ceras of course and I'll play King Troas as well. First person who makes a decent character sheet and wants to be the general in charge of Troas's military. You can join as a rebel, a citizen, a soldier, pretty much whoever you want.
