Post by Deleted on May 2, 2019 8:54:24 GMT -5
House Drake is an old, proud family of lesser nobility, whom once held great influence in the kingdom and produced many excellent magicians. In the past decades however, their golden days of might and glory have been reduced into distant memories, as the family has began to struggle with financial troubles and incompetent leadership, even if none of them will ever admit to it. According to their legends, those who carry the Drake name descend from an actual dragon, whom mated with a man and laid an egg from which their mythical founder was born. Because of the legend, many refer to themselves as "dragons" and there are those, who seem to believe they really have dragon blood in their veins.
And those, who have met a Drake know that the legends might just be true. In addition to their notoriously fiery temper, the Drakes are stereotypically arrogant traditionalists (some even more so than the greater houses) with a taste for gold and all things shiny. They tend to excel in offensive magic and most of them have an element related to fire. They only marry into other noble families, to keep their blood as pure and blue as they can: thus, the only common class blood relatives they have are at least two degrees removed. Marrying your first cousin was not unheard of in the past days.
Wanted: This ad will focus on the main branch of the family, specifically Aster's two siblings. Other members of the family and their relatives, such as cousins, aunts and uncles, are welcome, however! The face claims below are just suggestions, but a physical trait that all the siblings share is blonde hair. You can read Aster's app here. Their parents will be NPCs, and their father is the current head of the house. I'm happy to help you with character creation and we can work out their shared history together!
Status: TAKEN [Vanilla]
The youngest sibling of the three. Her personality is pretty much open, but here are some pointers. She's supposed to be the least dragonic of them, although might have a slight temper. Shy, introverted, perhaps kinder than her brothers. Not as strong of a personality or mage as their strict father wanted. She's the closest with Aster, while their older sibling is something of an example for them. Possibly in Blue Rose?
15-16. Male or female. No specific face claim, but she must be blonde.
Affinity doesn't have to be fire-based, could be totally opposite. Non-offensive magic, maybe healing or sensory spec. Bronze tier or above. Plus points if the first name starts with an A and/or is Greek-influenced like Aster, ex. Alethea, Anastasia, Ariana, Aura, Alaina, Allison, Alice, etc.
The oldest sibling of the three, also the heir of the family. His personality is also pretty open, but I've laid some basic ideas out. He's cunning, values intellect and strategy in a similar fashion how Aster values strength. Charismatic, perhaps a bit manipulative, ruthless. He's most of a father figure his younger siblings had, he loves them by teasing them to death. Has the family's temperament, but his general demeanor is calm and calculated. Possibly a prodigy and in Golden Dawn?
Early 20s. Male or female. No specific face claim, but he must be blonde.
Affinity doesn't have to be related to fire. His magical specialty is also up to the player. He has to be bronze tier or above to be a noble, preferably silver or gold (or platinum). Plus points if his name starts with A and/or is Greek-influenced like Aster.
best friends, (b)romance
This is Aster's future partner-in-crime, who's also in Crimson Lions. He can be a noble, but having him be a commoner would be nice contrast, since Aster is a bit entitled and sees 99.9% commoners as weaker than him (read: trash). He should have a thick skin to shrug off Aster's barrage of insults, when they first meet, and perhaps a more positive attitude than him. He likes to brawl and spar, but isn't necessarily an aggressive person. Other than that, his personality and history is up to you. There's a chance this plot will evolve into lowkey romance plot, where Aster realizes he likes to beat his best friend up more than any other friend, but the main thing is that they are super super close brothers who don't share any blood between them. If you take him I'll love you forever!
Male. 17-19, around the same age as Aster. His face claim is non-negotiable, Eijiro Kirishima from Boku no Hero Academia.
He can have any grimoire tier and element. Art-wise, there's plenty of images of him, that could make his affinity earth (copper tier) or scales (gold tier), and specs, that make the most sense would be physical reinforcement. Note that you need attack creation spec to app into Crimson Lions. He should be a combat-oriented character, as Aster is, because there will be plenty of threads with them fighting!
