Character Sheet:

Name: The Rose Queen (Her true name is kept secret for her protection. -Anaslyn Xyrleth-)

Age: 326 (Looks 25)

Race: Wood Elf

Powers/Magic:

Elven Life: All Elves have been blessed with long lives with the oldest among them living upwards of ten thousand years, but their long life does not make them invulnerable to diseases and the cutting slice of the sword.

Field of Thorns: With an ability to make whips of thorns in a matter of moments, The Rose Queen and turn a select area into a large patch of thorny vines. While this covers a large distance, nearly thirty meters wide and thirty meters long, it doesn't always do much other than making moving toward her very painful and difficult.

Sea of Petals: If she finds herself in a concerning situation that threatens her life, the Rose Queen can turn her form into rose petals that then quickly begin to float away in the breeze. This is just a minor form of teleportation that can transport her up to fifty meters away. Though if every petal is caught, her teleportation can be directed to a specific place where the petals land.

Wings of the Faerie Queen: After many years of learning and talking with a few Faeries on the continent of Kaleth, the Rose Queen was granted a blessing by the Queen of the Faeries. This ability allows her to grow wings similar to fragile Faerie wings, and they last for a limited number of hours before she must rest to use them again.

Kindgom:

Current - Trivel
Past - Vellidor

Role: The Rose Queen, Head of the Rose Guard

Scars/Tattoos/Piercings:

Tattoo:
Image
(Tattoo's placement is on the outer part of her right thigh.)

Scar: She has a scar that runs from the left side of her temple down past her left eye down past her lip to the tip of her chin.

Likes: She enjoys nature, archery, sword training, books, music, and helping her people.

Dislikes: Emperors and rulers that do not put value in the people they rule, liars, cheats, and being a ruler.

Personality: While she is very secretive, this allows her to do what she enjoys, helping her people when she doesn't need to be a Queen. Often during her rule, the Rose Queen has opposed her position as the singular leading figure in the kingdom of Trivel, though she puts up with the situation due to the fact the people of Trivel adore her and continue to ask her to remain as their queen. She is respectful and kind, but just because she is peaceful doesn't mean she had forgotten how to be violent. When provoked to a combat situation she is the first to charge and kill her opponents. She is incredibly lethal on the battlefield as proven in the war for Kaleth.

Biography:

Anaslyn was born to a family who prided themselves in their combat prowess. With this push to become a powerful warrior, Anaslyn spent her early year's training and preparing for combat. Often she would adventure far from her home against the wishes of her father and return with a trophy from a powerful beast. Though, being so versed in battle was not Anaslyn's greatest wish. What she wanted to be was a musician, and often when she left home on her little adventures she would write and experiment with musical instruments. She would never dare show her parents, especially her father, that she was musically inclined. Apparently, the world had other intentions as eventually her father and mother were told about her musical habits.

Her mother was curious and slightly proud that her daughter was smart enough to be a lethal weapon in battle and while playing the lute. This curiosity from her mother helped nullify her father's frustrated rage as Anaslyn began to learn how to be a courtesan. While the court of Vellidor was too far from her reach, one of the nearer Lord's had prepared a court in hopes to find a suitable wife and advisors. Anaslyn's mother saw this as an opportunity to raise her family and teach her daughter how to be cunning when it came to men. Thus the new training began and eventually Anaslyn earned the favor of the Lord.

Though she had little interest in the Lord and bearing his children, she prepared a clever ruse to keep what her mother so desired. After a couple years of clever manipulation, the Lord was cut down and reprimanded by the court of Vellidor for conspiring with another kingdom. This act of treachery was conveniently found by Anaslyn's mother after the Lord had prepared for a far away vacation with his new wife. As recompense, the now-widowed Lady Anaslyn committed herself to the court of Vellidor and her service was accepted. Many years passed as her proud mother and father cherished their positions as both a Lord and Lady due to their daughters cunning. Nearly fifty years later the world shook and the kingdoms became interested in personal preservation.

With the rise of Kaleth, and the new coming war, Anaslyn was seen as a valuable resouce in the new world. To keep the soldiers in line, and keep the kingdom aware of enemy movement. Anaslyn was deemed, the Lady of War and commanded to watch over the battles. In a desperate offensive, Anaslyn and her elite troops were commanded to attack a seemingly insignificant area of Kaleth. Little did she know she was being cast into a suicide mission. Back home, Anaslyn's mother had disclosed the truth of what her daughter had done in hopes to increase her station among the nobles of the Vellidor court. While she did receive a higher station in the court, her daughter was sentenced to death.

As Anaslyn and her troops desperately fought off a horde of troops from the Adrivia Empire a few of her own troops turned against her. It was at this point she realized that her home demanded her blood and death. So she gave it to them. Coaxing the troops of the Adrivia Empire into saving her, she earned their trust and confided in them and the remaining soldiers of her elite troop who were still loyal to her above all. This was the point when Anaslyn died, and the Rose Queen was born. Though at the time her new name was the Rose Warrior.

Appearance:

(The Rose Queen wears one of two masks, one is in this picture with her pet Faerie Dragon Damaris. Also, the dress she is wearing here is what she wears when she doesn't need to be incredibly fancy.)

Image
(This is the mask she wears more often.)

Image
(The dress here is her more fancy dress, though she is able to fight in this dress if she needs.)

Image
(If she is prepared for a battle, this is what she wears with the golden mask. She rarely fights without her mask. When she is not in combat she will wear the same thing in her kingdom when she wants to help people, in which case she won't wear a mask.)

Name: Lucian Caelum

Age: Twenty-six.

Race: Half Human/Elf

Powers/Magic:

Elven Life: All Elves have been blessed with long lives with the oldest among them living upwards of ten thousand years, but their long life does not make them vulnerable to diseases and the cutting slice of the sword. Owing his Elvish inheritance to his mother, Lucian benefits from their longevity and grace, but perhaps to a lesser extent.

Lightning/Fire Elemental Affinity: Even from an early age Lucian was gifted in the arcane arts. This was often a source of tension between him and his parents, as well as the Elves with which he learned under.
Image
He found some measure of control under the watchful eyes of his tutors, and grew proficient in drawing flames seemingly from nowhere, as well as manipulating the electrons in the air at will.
Image

Soulforged Kukris: Lucian’s weapons of choice in combat, he forged the blades with the help of a Master Blacksmith, combining his unique mixture of magic together during the forging process to create a pair of blades uniquely fitted to Lucian. When thrown, he can recall the weapons at his leisure, though he can also warp himself to the blades as well. It isn’t known precisely how this sort of teleportation is possible, but Lucian has posited it may be because during the forging process his magic was not only bonded to the weapon, but the weapon was bonded to him in return.
Image


Kindgom: Vellidor previously. Trivel currently.

Role: Rose Guard Initiate.

Scars/Tattoos/Piercings: Lucian has small and subtle tattoos. He has a "crow's foot" on his right cheek, and a line and a dot under his left eye. He has markings on his ears, a line down his neck, one around his right leg and a line down his middle finger of his left hand, and another down his forefinger on his right hand.
Image
Likes: Lucian enjoys physical activities like sparring and hunting, though many of the more nature-inclined tend to look down on him for it. He enjoys music and was taught to play the piano at an early age, though he would eventually stop playing, and he likes his privacy.

Dislikes: Ostentation, braggarts, liars, thieves, superior attitudes and overly-sweet foods.

Personality:
Despite his love for privacy, Lucian is a fairly open individual. Often he will speak the truth of his mind when allowed with no thought for social nuance. He is selfless, willing to take on burdens despite personal inconvenience. Though selfless, he’s been called arrogant due to his belief in his abilities and the confidence he exhibits to the world. Lucian is thoughtful, and will sometimes take a moment to think out his answer before replying to an individual, and often remembers even the smallest details.

Biography: Lucian’s mother was an Elven-warrior during the Hundred-Year War. His father was a human of some credibility, being a member of an ancient lineage of hunters. Lucian was never told how they met, with elven and human couplings being rare, but not unheard of. His father would admit later in life that they loved each other fiercely, and that the day Lucian was born was the happiest day of their lives. Not long afterwards his mother perished in a fire in which she saved many individuals.

Due to his grief, his father took Lucian and left Vellidor for the first time in his life, seeking a new start and the solitude it might bring. They arrived in the Kingdom of Trivel just after Lucian turned six, starting life anew in the fledgling country. Together they began to pick up the pieces of their life to forge something new, and the bond between him and his father grew. He learned much through the inheritance of his father’s ancient lineage. They went hunting together often, though they didn’t always hunt to kill, and his father taught him the skills of his father and his father’s forefathers. Lucian became an expert tracker and Ranger of some repute, though he struggled to sit through his schooling at a young age, much to his tutors often well-placed dismay.

Growing up Lucian often struggled with his half-elf heritage, and was constantly looked down upon by full-blooded elfs and humans as well. This problem was only exacerbated when Lucian began to develop his natural affinity for the arcane arts when he turned nine, culminating in an accident that left one of his bullies severely wounded. After that incident Lucian was privately tutored from then on.

As he grew older, Lucian’s skills would develop further as he became more interested in his studies. His mind took to history like a sponge, and he eventually found that the elvish ways of magic didn’t quite suit him, and he eventually took to practicing what he knew on his own. With time, his body grew tall and fit from his intense training regimens, and his mind grew sharp as he found more subjects that suited his interests.

As an adult Lucian gained some measure of independence working as a woodsman, mostly helping travelers navigate the forests around Trivel teeming with magical creatures, though he worked a variety of jobs. During one of his visits to the city, he caught the eye of one of the Rose Guards, a prestigious group of warriors dedicated to the defense of the Rose Queen, though the man was out of uniform at the time. After initially expressing disinterest, Lucian finally caved and the two met up again at one of the training yards. He impressed the Rose Guard with his combat prowess. Despite having never fought in a battle, or even participating in a real fight, Lucian was able to hold his own for a time against the Guard, until he eventually conceded defeat. However the fire was lit, and Lucian knew he wanted nothing more than join the Rose Guard.

Nice! Just let me know when it's complete but so far it is great!
(Just so I am 1000% sure, his magic with fire and lightning can't go too far. I'm sure you know that but I just want to be super sure before something happens in the RP and Lucian does God Magic.)

I have just a bit more for the bio.
And no worries! He probably sounds more powerful than he is, but I'm confident I can sell it well and keep things interesting for you wothout seeming overpowered. And if I ever do anything you don't like don't be afraid to tell me. (:

If you're the same Nyx from three or four years ago, then I am nervous and trust you completely with making a fair character.

I don't think I'm that old yet. Maybe 2 years? A little more?
Time flies sometimes, makes it hard to keep up. But I enjoy doing this more for character interactions rather than writing powerful beings without any weaknesses, so you're safe with me, promise<3

I didn't mean it that way I meant that I remember when I first joined the RPF and all the changes it went through and everything and...now I'm just rambling...
I'm just going to let you finish the CS and stop embarrassing myself.

You're fine. xD
I'm trying to come up with a convincing enough argument for why she would want him anyways.

Romance doesn't have to be instant. It could take time in the RP.
