Not available today, but for tomorrow, I am thinking of doing either Oberyn mustering his own Mercenary Company* plus the Company of the Cat in Essos.

*Which may or may not be the Brave Companions.

Looks like Lord Velaryon may want to get the hell out of King's Landing.

CHARACTER APPLICATION
Name: Lord Leyton Hightower
House: House Hightower
Age: 56
Gender: Male
Titles: Lord of the Hightower, Voice of Oldtown, Lord of the Port, Defender of the Citadel, Beacon of the South
House Seat:The High Tower, Oldtown
Allegiance paid to: House Tyrell of Highgarden
Appearance (Picture appreciated): Lord [img=https://awoiaf.westeros.org/images/7/7b/Leyton_Hightower.jpg]Leyton[/img] Hightower is a man well past his prime and has recently decided to stop entering tournies.
Personality: Cold, Calculating, Distant
Skills: Excellent Administrator, Good Spymaster, Good Scholar, Fair Warrior
Weaponry (If any): Vigilance (Formerly), Steel Longsword
Biography (At least a well written Paragraph please): Letyon has lived a long and prosperous life. He has had many children and is considered by many of the Lords of the Reach to be an honorable man. While this is all true, there are rumors that he, like many Hightowers before him, has a keen interest in Magic. His eldest daughter has already taken to remaining within their monolithic castle and never descending to the ground. Many believe it is only a matter of time until he does the same.

Already he leaves much of the control of his estates to his children Baelor and Garth. While his two younger sons Gunthor and Humfrey are still learning. He even has many daughters, one of which is married to Mace Tyrell. This has proved advantageous to the Hightowers giving them relative freedom in the southern Reach to expand their influence over the entirety of the southern coast with vassal lords and landed knights.

RP Example: Don't have much recently, but here is the one I am in currently: Example
Notes: Members of House Hightower, primarily Baelor, Garth, and Alerie. I plan on making an app for Baelor and possibly Garth if I end up using him a lot.


CHARACTER APPLICATION
Name: Ser Ixidor Bloodfyre
House: House Bloodfyre
Age: 22
Gender: Male
Titles: Ser
House Seat: None
Allegiance paid to: House Hightower
Appearance (Picture appreciated): Ixidor held distinctly [img=https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS6NoGBLzJ60jk5ncmUBtfybpATi-hU4h5ccTHkcLnjYgXDPAjTHw]Valyrian[/img] features as is common within the Black Walls.
Personality: Practical and Intelligent.
Skills: Good Commander, Good Fighter, Fair Diplomat, Poor Sailor, Abyssal Spy, Fair Administrator
Weaponry (If any): 2 Family Valyrian Swords (Claimed, but somewhere within the Black Walls of Volantis), Steel Longsword and Shield bearing his family crest.
Biography (At least a well written Paragraph please): In Volantis, the Black Walls house the last vestiges of what was the glory of the Valyrian Freehold. Dozens of families live here and each work to dominate the others to take control over the vast city which now surrounds them. To the outside world, they are but a footnote. Living as if time itself froze with the doom. Centuries of intermarriage has made most of the families very similar to one another. Rarely does new blood find its way into the walls. When it is permitted it is only with definitive proof that they are the blood of old Valyria. It is from one of those newly acquired bloodlines that a family was able to elevate themselves ahead of others many years ago. They then began to slowly lose prestige, and with that, power within the walls.

In our present time, fifteen years ago, the Bloodfyre family found themselves on the accusing end of a scandal. Freeholder Tafari had been accused of bringing non-valyrians into the Black Wall. While it was untrue, the family did not have the prestige enough to hold off the scandals. As the charges moved forward and the end seemed near, Tafari prepared for his family to make their way out of Volantis entirely. During the escape Tafari's own wife was among those breaking down the family estate to capture them. She had set them up to acquire the family's wealth. Within an hour the manor had been overtaken with Tafari and his children hardly making it aboard the boat. They had filled it with as many of the family treasures as they could.

They made several stops on the way west: Lys, Pentos, Tyrosh, and then finally Oldtown. Here the Bloodfyre family came into the employ of the HIghtowers and quickly proved themselves. The family brought with them a large contingent of slave soldiers. By the command of Leyton, Tafari freed his slaves and converted to the Faith of the Seven. His children were inducted into the faith shortly thereafter. Following their freedom, most of the slaves left the employ of the Bloodfyres. Those that remained served as soldiers and servants to the family, which now lived in the Hightower's lower levels.

It was here Ixidor spent most of his life, training with the Hightowers and learning to fight with Garth Hightower . It was during this training that Ixidor was given the scar he now has on his face. His training came to an end at age 17, when he was knighted and given a ceremony officially making him the head of his noble house. In the five years since, he has served with House Hightower and made a name for himself as a capable warrior and excellent battle commander. He has twice searched for a bride for himself, and twice he has been unsuccessful in the attempt.

On the eve of his twenty first nameday, Leyton came to him following the ceremony and presented him with a scroll and a small package. Ixidor was intrigued, the man had already acted as a father to him since his own father died protecting him. Opening the scroll he was quick to read that it was his family lineage recorded as of his sister's birth. The package held the family crest, a blue shield with a black dragon. The swords which crossed the shield were missing, both were apparently of Valyrian Steel if what Tafari had told Leyton was true.

While reading through the list of names he noticed two things, several generations ago. His family had a habit of adopting exiled valyrians into its ranks. One 'daughter of the Blackfyre' in 200 AC was wed into the family in exchange for several hundred horses and suits of armor. Before that a 'Sarea Targaryen' was wed into the family as well. These gave his family some prestige if it was revealed. However, hoping to prevent any kind of scandal on Westeros, Ixidor asked that this be left out of any public records and instead be recorded by the Maesters and sealed in a restricted section of the Citadel for posterity.

RP Example:
Notes: His younger sister, Aelora. Again, if I use her frequently enough I'll probably make an app for her too.

Since I was not notified of being accepted or denied, I announce my drop-out. Too bad, the thread had potential; it is the curse of ASOIAF threads
