For centuries the neighboring kingdoms of Askadon and Sefereli have been at war with one another. How it all started you ask? Well here is what was said to happen. Twin brothers Askad and Sefere where next in line for the throne of their kingdom. The two were to divide the kingdom in half. Then the kingdom was knows as Leserd. When their father died the two men took the throne. Soon the differences in the ruling styles if the two men were apparent. Askad wanted peace, and Serfere wanted power and money. The differences soon tore the kingdom apart. The two men moved their half of the kingdom to opposite locations leaving the old kingdom to slowly fall apart. The brothers each wanted the other's kingdom and quickly went to war to try to get it. That war is still continuing now. Will the current generation make peace or will they continue to fight it out?

Name: Kituyo Zan
Age: Nineteen years old.
A rather tomboyish and unsociable woman, Kituyo is one whose trust is earned and has been only by a very select few, looking to all others as mere "acquaintances". Her adamant persona and air of insecurity often masquerade her innermost sentience; a young girl whose innocence and morality was lost as she strayed from the path of her peers, allowing herself to find solace in violence, even though she knows that it's wrong. She holds a grudge against her cousin, Kurixen Zan, and all of the Seferelian nobles.
Kituyo Zan was never always like the way she was now. Born to the youngest of the two Zan brothers, Kewam Zan, and a Seferelian noblewoman, Vixen Zan (nee Tulo), she was raised alongside her cousin, Kurixen Zan, who was the son of the eldest brother. Her father, like Kurixen's father, Kazuma, was a military leader and guardian to Ghereth, but not as successful nor renowned. Her mother died during childbirth. He was jealous of his older brother's popularity and talent that three months after the day that Kazuma announced his inability to continue due to sustaining life-threatening wounds, he turned his sword against his own severely weakened brother and murdered him in cold blood. Unknowingly, a six-year old Kituyo and seven-year old Kurixen stumbled upon the scene only when the guards arrived to apprehend Kewam, who was killed in an altercation against them. Upon seeing this, Kituyo was horrified; she fled the room and called for Kurixen to come with her, receiving no reply as she saw the royal wizard take him away.
Kituyo escaped into the capital city where she hid in a merchant's caravan which departed the kingdom and traveled into the heart of Askadon. When they stopped at a town, she left the caravan and was suffering from starvation on the streets when a hooded man found her, who was the leader of a notorious assassin group known as the Mucro Atrox known for the killing of countless nobles over the time of the war between Sefereli and Askadon. She lived at their hideout by the town and trained as one of theirs, being one of the few women apart of the organization, for the next ten years before she completed her first task by killing a Seferelian military officer at seventeen years old. She continued to carry out missions specifically targeting Sefereli before the Mucro Atrox were hired by Askadon, who she now works for.
Like Kurixen, Kituyo is the descendant of a foreign race that is distinct by their ruby eye color. She is very skilled with swords and daggers, also proving to be proficient when it comes to acrobatics and the like. Through her training as an assassin, she is able to turn simple and conventional objects into weapons.

Bio: Cimber's mother died in childbirth, leaving her to be raised by her father, a Colonel in the army. He didn't have much time to take care of a baby, and hired a nurse maid to take care of Cimber for the most part while he was out on the field. She grew up with her father telling her constantly that he couldn't spend time with her - he was busy with the army. She began thinking that the only way she would ever be able to get her father to pay attention to her was to be in the army herself. She constantly practiced with the neighborhood boys with swords, bow and arrows, spears, etc. She was especially good at wrestling. She eventually was able to join the army at age 18, but her father died in battle almost immediately afterwards. Since then she has grown cold, distant, and resentful, becoming the perfect solider to try and honor her father's memory to express her hurt at never getting the chance to make him proud of her. Plus now that she's an orphan with no one to be proud of her at all period, she is reckless with her own life in battle at times.

Alexander was the youngest of the Kenway family, his older brother ascending to the throne after their father's death of an illness. His brother's rule was the most twisted that the kingdom had ever seen, silencing those who spoke out against his rule and even going as far as to put Alexander into the dungeons for life. Alexander luckily escaped the dungeon with the help of a baby dragon, who he has not seen since. He currently has a large bounty on his head that has spread to Askadon and Sereferli, reaching prices over 500K and a quarter of the northern kingdom(though his brother would retake it in the first place).
Other: He is a Renegade Prince from a northern kingdom, hoping to find refuge and start a new life. He is known for being a legend with his trademark sword, "Dragon's Ruby" and a decent shot with the bow. However, his weakness is his kind heart.

Name: Serefi Aladar
Personality: Serefi is a proud and demanding woman. She encourages her husband (who has never taken much of an interest in the military) to be ruthless in battle. She is determined that her daughter will be as fine a lady as her mother and is exasperated when Seria manages to sneak away. But beneath Serefi's proud exterior lies a fear that she will never be good enough, that her children will never be sophisticated enough, and that her kingdom will never be strong enough. Beneath her fear is an unwavering strength and determination. And beneath that...a genuine love for her family.
Bio: Serefi was the daughter of the son of the son of the daughter of King Serfere the Mighty. Since childhood she had been betrothed to Serfere III, son of Kind Augnin, son of King Serfere II, son of Serfere the Mighty. But Serfere III was a reckless boy and was killed in his first battle at age 14. Serefi eventually ended up marrying the second son of King Augnin, Prince Ghereth, who was mannerly but unambitious. Ghereth and Serefi have two surviving chidren, one of each gender.
Other: Serefi's voice is colored salmon.
Name: Seria Aladar

She enjoys interacting with the people of her kingdom, often getting their opinion on a rule then bringing it to her father afterward as a "friendly suggestion".

Name: Kurixen Zan
Position: Guardian / Escort (tasked with protecting important figures, like nobility or high-ranking officials).
Generally a man of action over words, Kurixen is always predominantly attentive and prepared for just about anything, a trait he developed through his occupation as a guardian. Despite having to protect well-known figures such as those of nobility, he holds a significant disdain for the task; he would rather leave to travel the world, and only wishes for peace among the two nations. He does not, however, hesitate to fight whenever he feels that either the people, person, or he himself, are threatened, and has some devotion as a guardian.
Kurixen Zan is the only son of Kazuma and Swan Zan (nee Elain), born in the royal palace of Sefereli and considered equal to that of a noble. His father was the personal guardian to Prince Ghereth (later King), and a talented military leader of Sefereli with a natural flair for strategy. His mother was a dragon rider, though despite the gender inequalities, she was granted permission to participate in the war, but went missing shortly after Kurixen's birth. Given both of their positions in the Sefereli Army, they were unable to spend a lot of time with their son, and Kurixen went under the care of the royal family.
When he was seven years old, his father renounced his ability to be a guardian and militant due to sustaining life-threatening wounds in countless battles, which in three months, he would die from. In that time frame, the Princess of Sefereli, Seria Aladar, was born. Kurixen was told by his father that he must inherit the family lineage of guardians, with Seria as his priority in protecting from then on. He began to pass down his war knowledge and various combat skills to Kurixen until he died. Although it took some time to prepare for the lifetime of servitude ahead, Kurixen honored his father's request, promising not to fail him, and he has not broken this promise for almost seventeen years.
Kurixen is a direct descendant of a foreign race's bloodline.
Name: Ritara Acumen
Kingdom: Born in Serefeli
Personality: A sort of selfish, stuck up girl. In conversation her speech patterns tend to run informally to everyone regardless of class and aged. The girl found it hard to not look down on those she regarded as less learned and she helps people so far as it supports her own selfish needs. She has an innate lack of trust in others. If a task needs to be done she’ll do it herself. She also doesn’t care very much about how people perceive her. She has quite the fascination for machines. Ritara may have been born in Serefeli but she has no care for her nation. The girl feels that both nations are silly for waging war on each other given that they technically are related by blood even if it is divided by generations.
Bio: As a child Ritara liked to solve puzzles. She would then figure out how contraptions would work. Her curiosity knew no bounds. Her parents then decided to send her to study under the wisest and most knowledgeable sage at age 6. She was naturally able to learn things quickly and during her study days with him she learned much knowledge in the world. The sage eventually taught her machinery and she was widely curious about it. After the many years of studying she was able to dexterously create mechanisms and improved her skill little by little. These little projects of hers were ingenious yet some were useful and others not so much. While some served their intended use such as the hand-crossbow she eventually crafted others did not such as the Ritara Flying Machine. The sage was the only person in the world that Ritara trusted and respected yet eventually he died of natural causes. She listened to his last words.
Now she roams around attempting to learn what she can and write down what she has learned to add knowledge to the old sage’s library for future generations.
Other: She was nicknamed by some people as ‘The Sage Girl.’ She created a hand-crossbow for personal protection as well as a dagger given to her by the old sage. She discovered practical uses for whips for things other than torture. (Think Indiana Jones)
Name: Vodsako Misbenti
Position: Roaming Alchemist
Personality: Curious and calm in nature. Almost like a wandering sage, yet when angered the world seems to boil, and sometimes it literally does.
Bio: Vodsako was raised in a normal family, with the exception of the fact that his father convinced him to work under the tutelage of the local Alchemist. Though most people of the village believed that Alchemy was the practice of mixing herbs with bits and pieces of the world to create salves and strange concoctions, the local Alchemist showed him a world of magic and Transmutation. Under his master's teaching Vodsako soon learned and mastered this subtle art, yet his master was not done. You see, most Alchemists must use Runes and Symbols drawn onto objects or clothes to change the forms of matter, yet his master forced him to learn the art of shifting without runes. More years passed and Vodsako mastered the skills, but still his master was not done. As a final gift (and as a fall back in case of the odd chance VodsIko would forget his teachings), his master tattooed almost all of the glyphs and runes onto Vodsako's body; leaving him one last line of defense. So Vodsako set of to travel the land and discover new properties that he could use in his transmutations. As the years progressed and Vodsako turned from a teen to an Adult he mastered new skills, the ability to shift his own shape, and the matter in the air around him. Yet there was one thing he did not expect, with this knowledge his body was no longer able to shift things without exerting vast amounts of energy. His travels brought him to a kingdom at war, where he thought he could find some new properties of the earth.

Name: Yuri Wolfury
Personality: Kind, sarcastic, and cynical. He treats his friends well and shows no mercy to those he considers enemies. He’s easy enough to get along with and dislikes rules and laws.
Bio: Yuri had joined the military originally for the sake of fighting. He quit when he felt that some of his superiors were taking advantage of the civilians.
Other: Yuri fights uniquely with a metal gauntlet on his right hand and his sword held in his left.
Valios, but goes under numerous aliases.
Seventeen years old.
Formerly Askadon, now neutral.
The Exiled Prince of Askadon, known as "The Upstart" by the common people of the two nations.
A vigilant and rebellious individual with a vindicated spirit, Milos wants nothing more than harmonic coexistence and peace between Askadon and Sefereli, going so far as to leaving his home within the royal palace countless times and speaking to the general public across the nation in an effort to sway them away from the notion that warfare is the only option. As a result of this, he was the most distant member of the ruling noble family of Askadon, and spent only little time with his siblings.
Valios was exiled from Askadon after being framed for the assassination / murder of a highly-respected and regarded noble. He has a bounty on his head, and is currently in hiding between the two nations.
Often uses the alias "Milos".
Skilled at archery, and very agile (capable of advanced parkour / freerunning for nimble movements and when necessary, escapes).
Fights both Askadon and Sefereli in a guerrilla-like manner.
