What is the Navy Day Festival?

Navy Day is a national holiday which was implimented by the government of Port Ember once it gained independance from Great Britian in 1950 in order to commemorate the long and rich maritime history of the nation, celebrate the achievements and success of the nations maritime achievements and honor the sacrifices of the naval forces of Port Ember.

The Naval Day national holiday has expanded from just being a normal national holiday, into a full blown annual festival of international standards, whilst still remaining true to the original concept of Commemorate, Celebrate and Honor.

The festival is in essence a massive party, organised by the Navy with the aim of entertaining and informing the populace, whilst strengthening ties with foreign navies and shopping for new maritime technology.


Background Lore - Maritime History of Port Ember

Just to give a slight idea of what Port Ember is actually celebrating, here is a few 'Bullet Points' of the maritime history involved:

- The Kingdom of Ember was established in 1200ad by japanese slaves who shipwrecked onto the island and established their new home on the islands, attracting runaway slaves and convicts from the world over. These influx of violent characters caused uncountable civil wars, and the only way the kings could keep its subjects united was by building boats and raiding other nations. Thus from an early stage of the nation, the ocean provided means to unify the strongly individualist nation.

- Great Britian arrived on the Ember Islands in 1500ad, and used its overwhelming naval power to destroy the Ember Kingdom and colonise the islands in the name of the Queen, bringing superior weapons and naval technology to the islands.

- Around 1600ad the islands were a wealthy and bustling colony, situated on lucritave maritime trade routes. This, combined with weak military and political strength from the governor quickly and easily attracted privateers and pirates from accross the multiverse to settle on the islands and practice their bloody trade.

- In 1620ad the Black Incident occured - (The new British Governor attempted to quell piracy, and as an example had a famous female pirate captain be brutally and publicly beaten, gang raped, tortured and executed. The remaining pirates rallied together and slaughtered all British soldiers, including the governor, and subsequently formed the Copperbeard Consortium - and proclaimed themselves the new rulers of a new free Port Ember). This small free pirate nation terrorised the european powers for a hundred years until being finally crushed in 1720. This period has always been one of the most celebrated times of Port Emberian history, and remains an important part of modern culture and heritage.

- After being recolonised by Great Britian, the islands entered a period known as The Golden Age of Trade, where maritime trading brought immense wealth to the entire island, uplifting the living standards of the populace to even higher levels of european nations at that time.

- Port Ember, still a colony of Great Britian, entered both world wars on the side of the Allies, where they contributed heavily in the naval campaign against the axis, proving to be some of the best sailors and naval commanders in the world.

- Port Ember gained its independance from Great Britian in 1950, by displaying its seriousness for the cause by capturing the entire visiting British Fleet. Thus the Porr Emberian Navy will always remain part of the patriotic notions of the nation.

- Port Ember has continued to build on its proud maritime history in the modern era, and has become one of the world leaders in international trade, and possesses one of the largest Merchant Marines and busiest ports in the world.

- Port Ember has continued to build on its proud naval history in the modern era, and is considered one of the largest, strongest and most decorated blue water navies in the world.

- Port Ember has also become one of the world leaders in shipbuilding and ship technology, boasting the ultra successfull Umberlee Shipyards and Port Ember Maritime University as evidence.


Venue of the Festival

Although Navy Day is celebrated by the entire Republic as it is an official holiday, the festival itself is hosted by the Port Emberian Security Forces Navy at the Port Ember Maritime University, located in Port Ember Megalopolis, Musk Borough.

The University is an historic campus, constructed in 1725 and is a unique university as all the training presented and research conducted is maritime related. Please note that the University is currently on Break, so the festival will not disturb the students.

This will take place at the University Dock. All Warships will arrive here at this stage of the RP only.

☆ Each warship must fly two flags when they enter the dock - Their own flag of origin, and a smaller flag of the Republic of Port Ember. This is a symbolic sign of respect for Port Ember and shows that they are entering the dock as friends and in solidarity with the Republic.

☆ Each warship must fire two blank cannon shots before entering the dock. This is a symbolic sign of respect for Port Ember and shows that they are entering the dock as friends and in solidarity with the Republic. (Basically one cannon shot salute for both their own nation, and one for Port Ember)

☆ The crew who wishes to disbark and join the festival (The Captain is compulsary), must do it at this stage of the RP. The crowds are onshore, greeting you with cheers.


- 10:00 - 12:00: International Shipyard Promotion.

This will take place inside the Alpha Hall.

☆ The shipyard companies must have a display prepared here, and do some soft marketing to both civilians and military personnel. The other characters are free to view the displays here during this time.


- 12:00 - 14:00: Lunch.

All Invited Guests (warship captains and others whom I invite) will attend the VIP lunch at The University Central Manor.

☆ Other festival-goers are free to do as they please during this time, either visit the Pirates Beard Tavern or the University Park - Food Court, to choose from a wide variety of festival food.


- 14:00 - 16:00: Naval Forces Parade.

This will take place at the Campus Parade Ground. All warship crews must partake in a short drill parade here, with the festival-goers cheering you on.

☆ Please note that only the Port Emberian Naval Band will perform music here.

☆ Please note that if the crew carries weapons for the drill - these may not be loaded with ammunition under any circumstances.

This is very much a free for all mingle stage. The Tavern will be a good place to go, or the food court, and the beer tent will be open now. Also the University Open Air Theatre will now be operational and bands will perform till late (I will release the band schedule once I have enough entries)

Additional Lore

The following is some tidbits to help you understand my world a bit better:

- Port Ember is a Tropical Island nation. So its hot and humid.

- Port Ember is a Parliamentary Republic. The President is President Edward Flint.

- Port Ember is a hardliner capitalist nation. It has almost no laws - you can inport/export/buy/sell/use almost anything here (except WMD's). Guns/drugs etc is all legal here. (Except for the festival - as I said no weapons)

- Port Ember has no public decency laws. So you will not be arrested for being naked or semi naked. You will not see random naked people though, they are still a civilised and decent people.

Here is a few reaources for the more curious folks, to help flesh out the world you are about to visit:

The Selkie

Captain Galen Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath
Name:
    Galen Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath.
Rank:
    Captain, SDF-Navy.
Age:
    46.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio:
    Galen was born in 1973 in Wembury, as son of two long-serving Naval Officers. His father, Commodore Liam Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath (vintage 1950), retired in 2005 as Commander, Naval Station Silverport. Galen, meanwhile, attended the Naval School as a Cadet, joined the Officer's Course in 1992, graduated from that with flying colours in 1998 as a Lieutenant. In 1997, he made a training cruise aboard the Sciath-class Corvette SDFS Ógbhean, the commanded by Captain Amy Curadh of the Tribe of Wicklow.
    In 2002, when the Zampa del Lupo visited Wembury, Galen was ranked Lieutenant Commander and was first officer of the Claíohm-class Frigate SDFS Claíleath. He was amongst the officers, who pooled in money for Ruvido, the Guarding Fox Plushie of Aurora Alce. He served aboard the SDFS Claíleath until 2006 on multiple missions. During that visit, he formed a lifelong bond with the Lutetiian Officer Antonio Caccia.
    In 2009, he, by now first officer of the Rhiannon-I-class Frigate SDFS Carman Fea and ranked Commander, was deployed to the Operation Glantachán in the Gainimh-Islands. From 2010 to 2012, he was the head of the Military Mission to the Gainimh-Islands, the peacekeeping force there. Early in 2012, he assumed command of the Claíleath. He commanded his ship gallantly during the Battle of Marley Bay, but she was heavily damaged and was decommissioned upon her return.
    He was transferred into a shore-position yet again, to the Liaison-Group to SDY, and helped during the development of the Maighdean-class Missile Cruiser. He was promoted to Captain along with that.
    In 2014, Galen was chosen as the Captain of the SDFS Maighdean, which was being built at the time, launched a year later. He commanded her during her shakedown cruises from 2016 to 2018, her commissioning, and then also took command of the newly re-formed 1st Cruiser Squadron of the SDF-Navy.
    He attended the 2019 Cuan Spring Festival with his friend Antonio Caccia.
    In 1999, he married his long-time girlfriend Celina Comrádaí of the Tribe of Westmeath, with whom he has two daughters (Asteria, 2000, and Finnya, 2005) and a son (Sirlám, 2003). The marriage broke apart in 2006 due to Galen being away from home, often on deployment, and a divorce having followed in 2008. In 2015, there were rumours of him having an affair with Gwen Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, but these weren't even commented.
Appearance:

Commander Aidan Bratoi of the Tribe of Wexford
Name:
    Aidan Bratoi of the Tribe of Wexford.
Rank:
    Commander.
Age:
    41.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio:
    Aidan Bratoi of the Tribe of Wexford was born to a family of naval officers in 1978, literally near Fortham in a field, where his family celebrated a reunion - and, by the evening of that day, a birth. His mother was daughter of Admiral Yvain Neamhthábhach of the Tribe of Wexford, at the time Supreme Commander of the SDF, while his father was a young officer aboard SDFS Lodan Lir.
    His father fell in the line of duty on the opening day of the Second Vellenge War in 1983, when SDFS Lodan Lir was sunk.
    Aidan got into school in 1984, joining the Naval School in Wembury, joining the Cadet Cadre. He got to know his first wife there, who he married in 1998 - the marriage broke apart in 2001, childless. Main reason was, that he was a career officer and thus rarely at home. Upon Graduation as a Lieutenant in 2000, Aidan was not only best of his class but also assigned as a Lieutenant to SDFS Rhiannon, the Rhiannon-I-class Frigate.
    Promoted to Lieutenant Commander in 2005, he got taste of command in the Battle of Marley Bay in 2012, when the commander of his vessel was wounded by shrapnel and he took over command of his stricken vessel, leading her to safety.
    However, by 2010, his career had hit its peak, with a promotion to Commander in 2013 being his last - at the same time, he was assigned to SDFS Maighdean as her first officer under Captain Galen Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath. To him, this seems like a demotion by 2016, as he isn't going to sea - that changed with the shakedown cruises and the Cadet Cruises, leading him in 2019 all around the world, including to Port Ember.
Appearance:

Ensign Fiona Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford
Name:
    Fiona Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford.
Rank:
    Ensign.
Age:
    19.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio:
    Fiona was born in 2000 in Scilly as daughter of Ava Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford and Finnegan Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford, at the time Captain of the Scoth-class Corvette SDFS Sáiste, nowadays Commodore and commander of Naval Station Tipa. She was around the Navy from very early on, decided to make the Navy her career. She applied for the Naval School in 2009 and was accepted for the 2010 School Year onwards, passing the strict tests with flying colours.
    Originally a follower of Tank Sport, Fiona turned to Tankery or Sensha-Do in 2014 and joined the Puisíni upon their foundation, first as driver of a Faolchú Armoured Personnel Carrier, then as a commander. She still follows the Kyrenaian Tank Sport League and is a friend of Pina Tíogar of the Tribe of Wexford, one of the most well-known figure of the Realincse Fánaígh.
    In 2017, Fiona became the overall commander of the Team. In the same year, the entire team made a joint holiday trip to the Oileánra-Archipelago, where Fiona, Gwen and Kayla shared a room.
    After her graduation in 2018, Fiona joined the Officer's Training Programme of the SDF-Navy, hoping to be able to then to join the Regiment of SDF-Navy Troopers. In autumn of 2019, she made her first training cruise aboard SDFS Maighdean.
Appearance:

Ensign Kayla Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo

    Kayla Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo.
Rank:
    Ensign.
Age:
    19.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio:
    Born in 2000 in Perran to Liliane Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo and Finnegan Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo (at the time a platoon commander of the 14th Regiment of Hussars, nowadays commanding officer of the II./23rd, Kayla is what is typically called a military brat and as such, she decided to join the SDF from an early age - however, as it always drew her to new lands and strange places, she joined the Naval School in 2010, having passed the entrance tests half a year prior. There, she also met Fiona Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford.
    The two took a while to warm up to each other, but once they did, they were fast friends. However, Kayla did not share the other young woman's enthusiasm for Tank Sport at first - in 2012, Fiona took her to an exhibition match of the sport, where Kayla fell in love with the big machines used. Upon foundation of the Naval School Sensha-Do Team in 2016, she joined together with Fiona, although not with the same fervor. She began to drive the Faolchú Armoured Personnel Carrier Raicleabán-Aon for fun and soon became adept at it.
    After her graduation in 2018, Kayla joined the SDF-Navy and their Officer's Training Programme as an Ensign. She, crushing on Captain Galen Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath, would naturally prefer to be stationed aboard SDFS Maighdean. In autumn of 2019, her wish became a short-lived reality as she made her first training cruise aboard SDFS Maighdean.

Draycora

Amaraali Juhani Pauli Kaskeala
Name: Juhani Pauli Kaskeala

Rank: Amiraali (Comparable with the admiral) / CEO of Akatemia Inc.

Age: 61

Country of Origin: Draycora

Bio: Juhani Pauli Kaskeala was born into a working-class family in Halsholm in 1958, as was the case at the time. He enjoyed an average school education in one of the former unitary schools. At 16, he started a job in a then still state-owned sheet metal factory. However, due to the miserable working conditions, he left after a year. Juhani moved to the more liberal Crystal Realm, southwest of the Principality. There he visited the well-known Military Academy of Smeralda and managed to ascend to the rank of admiral.
At the time, the defense budget was severely curtailed by the government, consisting of the ecologically left-liberal PHRAPC and the classic-liberal Centre Party. This caused a mismanagement in the military and also in the navy. Juhani tried to act against these cuts, but in vain. From 1980, the well-known libertarian reforms of Draycora began. The budget was cut further. In the late 1980s, even the entire military was dissolved. Air Force and Ground Force were contracted with other states, the existing military system was dismembered and sold to private companies. Juhani was quite shaken by this development, but decided to make the best of the situation. In 1989, he founded Akatemia Inc., a military company focused exclusively on the Navy. The company was quite successful and now operates all along the Crystal Realm coast and even with other stations in Draycora.
Juhani now lives in Smeralda, because of his old age, he has started to focus only on working as CEO. Only on ceremonies and for representation purposes he performs in Admiral uniform. So also to the Navy Day in Port Ember

Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork
Name:
    Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork.
Age:
    55.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Company Represented:
    Silverport Dockyards Limited.
Occupation:
    CEO.
Bio:
    Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, born in 1964 in Silverport is a Selkie businesswoman and shipwright, one of the co-founders of Silverport Dockyards Limited. Her father is Tyran Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, who founded the company in 1983.
    In 1970, she followed her mother's footsteps by joining the Axemaidens of Gavida, the God of Arts and Crafts, being a good woodcarver herself, becoming a laywoman of that Cult. In 2001, she was 'promoted' to Arcane Servant, a position she holds to this day.
    At the tender age of 23, after finishing the Merchant School of Laclan, she joined her father's company as his registered office. During these days, the company was mostly a repair yard, but in 1992, SDY entered a competition for the new corvettes of the SDF-Navy with the help of a young, genius engineer named Fynn Caillte of the Tribe of Cork.
    What began as a business relationship soon blossomed into love between the two, culminating in their marriage in 1988 and the birth of their daughter Gwen in 1989 (Gwen Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork is nowadays an accomplished engineer, forelady of Yard 15 and representative of SDY on a multitude of events).
    She became a widow in 1997, when a storm forced an amphibious assault ship of a friendly nation to limp to Silverport for an emergency checkup and said 40,000 tons of warship fell onto Fynn's head during the inspection of the keel. He wore a hardhat, as did the other 29 people crushed by the keel. Nora fought on and raised further in the ranks of SDY. In 2005, she added the Grey Wolf Sról to the family, who is to this day her daughter's pet.
    In 2009, her father retired and she took SDY's reins, expanding the company and forming strategic partnerships with Ironcastle Ironworks and Gabha Blacksmiths as well as several other companies in the Free Lands, preparing it for the international market, which the company entered in 2015.
    In 2016, during a ball in the Empire of Criska, where she travelled abroad to represent SDY, she met Major Lukas Praeton of the Criskan Air Force, with whom she started a relationship intended as a one-night-stand to fill the loneliness in her life for a night, resulting in a relationship and a pregnancy. In April 2017, she suffered from a miscarriage, naming the child in accordance to ancient custom the name she would have given it would it have been born, naming it Kyra Cathlong.
    In early 2019, Nora took the duties as representative of SDY in foreign countries due to her daughter's pregnancy.

Occupation:
    Engineer, Foreman of Yard 15.
Bio:
    Raidri Gormchló of the Tribe of Fingal was born in Tipa in 1984 and, from a rather young age, showed talent with machines, less so as a mechanic but more so as someone designing things and even building some of the mechanism he designed. In School, he was part of the Mechanical Club, even headed them in High School.
    After that, he went to Silverport to study engineering in 2004, specializing in Naval Engineering. During his studies, he got acquainted with both Gwen Cathlong and Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, who would soon become his employers - while he had talent, though, he could not compare to the genius and dedication to the craft of Gwen.
    He found a girlfriend in 2006, who he impregnated in 2009. The two tied the knot shortly afterwards. His son Áed came into the world in the Winter of 2009, Raidri's pride and joy. He graduated in 2010 and was hired off the bat by SDY, joining Yard 15 - it would take until 2019 until he found out, that Gwen had recommended him.
    He worked on several projects and parts of larger projects before being made head of Togra Aoibhneas, or Project Rapture, in 2016. In 2019, Radri was asked to become head of Yard 15 to replace Gwen Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, who left the company due to her pregnancy.

Yvain Saighead of the Tribe of Westmeath
Name:
    Yvain Saighead of the Tribe of Westmeath.
Age:
    47.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Company Represented:
    Silverport Dockyards Limited.
Occupation:
    Businessman.
Bio:
    Yvain Saighead of the Tribe of Westmeath was born in Wembury in 1972 and, due to the long-history of the city with seafaring and naval matters, always had a keen interest in seafaring - due to his father being the owner of a number of fishing vessels and two fish processing vessels, he had a solid entry into the matters of the sea. He had three older siblings, Eileen (born 1970, died 2017), Yvain (born 1969) and Gawain (born 1965).
    Yvain had an unassuming school career, only really excelling in Mathematics. In 1983, he applied for the Iris Boarding School Complex and was taken upon passing of the entrance exams. There, he got to know his future wife, Liliane Saighead of the Tribe of Westmeath, two years above him. She was a young firebrand and he fell in love with her at first sight, although she took her sweet time to return his feelings. The two separated upon graduation.
    He graduated in 1991 and began his studies in Leuda in 1992. By 1999, he had a Master's Degree and joined SDY instead of his father's company. As the youngest, he would have become an over-glorified secretary, he believed, and he wanted to have a bit more impact in the world then that. He met Liliane again and the two began to date each other in 2000. They married shortly after that, their first child, Isla being born in 2001.
    He made a career and by 2019, he was the liaison between SDY and its subsidiary Sciathan Limited in Riverwood. When news of Gwen Cathlong's pregnancy broke, he knew, that they would be searching for someone to replace her as representative of SDY abroad, but he did not imagine, that Nora Cathlong would choose him. He was correspondingly surprised.
    He had his trial by fire a few months later, when he attended the 2019 Ball at Schloss Zyng with his daughter.

Bio(s)/Band History:
    The two young women met first at the age of a few months, in their shared hometown of Ardán, near Inis. While their fathers got along well with each other, their mothers were old rivals and fought each other at any given and not-given opportunity.
    The band came to a wider critical acclaim in 2014, with the concept album Cross and Arrow, the larger thematic context being the Crusade between 1280 and 1325.
    In 2017, Layla's father died of a sudden stroke. That led to a creative pause, soon resulting in the album Crua ar chúis mhaith from 2018, focusing a lot on love and loss, but also on peace and tranquility. One of the songs, Ár mBlocha Cloiche, is to be seen as a memorial to Layla's Father and dedicated to him.
    After the Battle of Falernum, Leannáin and Disread were troop entertainment for the SDF-Forces in Sadera, a bit of a reward for the men and women. They toured the stations, where the SDF was deployed, including their humanitarian efforts, and played two concerts.

Country of Origin:

Occupation:
    Business woman (Gabha Blacksmiths Ltd.), Servant to Carman Fea.
Bio:
    Fiona Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan is the daughter of Finn and Gwen Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan, born in 1987 in Traverse on Farpoint Island as the first of three children (two younger brothers, Tyran and Glynn). Not a Princess in the strict sense, Fiona is the daughter of a Clan Chief (her mother). She plans on keeping her mother's title in the family.
    When she was fifteen, an Aunt and an Uncle (Cecilia and Raidri Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Waterford) of her died in a plane crash, their little son being given to her family for the time being before it was decided, what was to happen to him. Her mother decided, that Fiona was to feed him and, after a crash course, she began to breastfeed the child for a few months. When he was taken to the Aunt's family, she cried. She later characterized these times as a 'difficult time' for her. As a sort-of replacement, her mother got her Sio, a Curly Mountain Fox, from a breeder, who was breastfed by her for three days during the so-called Milk Desaster, who soon after joined her bed.
    Having studied economics at the relatively small Traverse University, Fiona is prepared and willing to take over the family business, Gabha Blacksmiths Ltd., and lead it to the same recognition and fame as other companies of the Free Lands.
    She is seen as the more ideal candidate for this position by the Clan Members because she has more merit then her brothers: Although Tyran is the Steward of Arbhar House near Ironcastle, he is only taking care of the land, not expanding it, while Glynn is mostly occupied with his participation in Horseriding tournaments, where he starts as a lancer. Fiona meanwhile got Gabha several rather rewarding commissions, expanded the business to include several other branches and cleaned up the whole company administration.

Gina Fittipaldi
Name: Gina Fittipaldi

Age: 38 (will be 29 on November 11)

Country of Origin: Mercantile Federal Republic of the Aurora Confederacy (my first Nation States nation!!)

Occupation: Business owner (transport)

Bio:Born into a merchant navy family, Gina, youngest of her parents 3 children, and the only daughter, Gina was very much the unwanted one. Though not abused, Gina was pretty much left out of everything, Enrico spent more on his two sons than he did on Gina, and Dominica wasn’t much different either.

Her education was at St. John’s High in South Sands, a Catholic school, where she received a good education during her school years, leaving school with good exam results. As her brothers turned 16, they followed the family footsteps and joined the navy. William Fittipaldi, the eldest, joined the navy; Angelo Fittipaldi joined up with a merchant shipping company. In 1996, when Fitt turned 16, she was signed up to Chemica Atlantico, a chemical shipping company. The ship that she was signed onto, the Celestia was a ship with a chequered past, having been stretched in 1980 after being built in 1976 and had seen better days but the company still continued to use it. Gina was given the position of becoming the assistant to the ships cook.

It took a few weeks for Gina to settle into the all male crew, however settle she did, and unlike her father, who was the captain, Gina gained the respect of the crew, probably because of female company in an all male environment. Because of the respect, Gina became known as “Fitt” to her fellow crewmates, ever since then the name stuck.

In the early hours of 9th November 1999, 2 days before her 19th birthday, out in the ocean off 200km off the coast of Terra Azure, Astyria Celestia suffered a power loss then breaks her keel and begins to roll over, this roll threw Gina out of her bunk.

Sensing that the ship was in danger, Fitt put her life jacket on then began her escape, and to do this Gina used a fire extinguisher to break the latch off the porthole window, allowing water to cascade into the ship. As soon as the cabin was full of water Gina swam out and once out of the ship the ripcord on the life jacket was pulled, catapulting Gina to the surface, the ship itself now lies in 150m of water.

When Gina surfaced she looked around in the moonlit night only to see the main hull slowly heel over and sink as by by this time the entire front end had already gone under whilst on the surface was a slick of diesel oil from the Celestia’s fuel tanks. Hearing someone shout, Gina turned around and saw one of her colleagues so she started to swim to a lifeboat.

As she swam, Gina spotted a small semi inflatable speed boat racing towards her the men aboard it letting rip with machine gun fire whilst in the distance, a dark, low slung shape of a submarine was silhouetted by the moonlight. The seaman who shouted Gina was mown down in a stream of bullets, dying instantly and falling into the water. As the boat came closer Gina tried to dive out of the way, but the boat caught her right leg and ankle, chewing them up and almost instantly the salt instantly getting into the wounds. Gina later resurfaced, and with the inflatable going back to the mother boat. Gina recalls the ship as being very low to the water, almost submarine like in profile), Gina swam to the remains of a lifeboat, she also grabbed a dead crewman and removed his survival suit and put it on herself. With the life suit on Gina was alone in the ocean. The first thing she did was use a belt of one of the dead crewmen to seal the leg of the suit to ensure that the blood was contained, she also stuffed what ever fabric she could around the leg as well to act as a blood soak though being in salt water the pain was almost unbarable until that was the nerve damage meant that the wounds to her leg went numb.

Come dawn, Gina looked around to survey her surroundings, of the 30 crew aboard the Celestia she was the only survivor. Lying on the water were numerous plastic containers, pop bottles and the likes of, a couple of sports bags containing some water filters and sterilising tablets that had come from the two of the lifeboats. 19 other corpses lay afloat on the water, along with a partly deflated inflatable lifeboat, (the floor, and 4 of the 9 side sections were deflated, but it was afloat). Gina swam round to pick up some of these fizzy drinks bottles, and a couple of belts off the dead crewmen, climbed aboard it, the partially inflated boat moulding to her shape. As the sun climbed higher into the horizon, Fitt began to succumb to the fact that she may never get picked up which gave her a deep fear of the unknown. The day went on without so much as a single passing ship; the distress beacon pinging away but nothing came.

The first night alone at sea was quite frightening for Gina, as she wasn’t sure what lay for her in the morning, and she was frightened to go sleep for fear of slipping into unconsciousness and then death. After a night that was totally still, not much in the way of moonlight, as there was quite a bit of cloud cover. During the night, Gina resorted to singing with herself, if anything to take her mind off the situation and to keep her fighting on. These lyrics were made up of what ever thoughts came into her head, Usually, these were song lyrics inspired by what ever she is thinking of at the time, mainly to keep her spirits up. During the day, Gina was also taking note at the direction of the sun throughout the day, so she could gather a fix on which way she was drifting, (which turned out to be away from the site of the sinking, heading Northeast, away from land).

The morning of the second day, (Fitt’s 19th Birthday), began much like the other morning, except it was raining, so Fitt took the condenser apart and let it fill with water, it may not have been the nicest water in the world but it was water. Having an empty bottle and a knife at hand, Gina sliced the top off one bottle to make a funnel, then placed it over another bottle in order to collect rainwater. Once the bottle was full, Fitt added a sterilising tab and placed the top back on, then later on drunk the water. That evening, Gina was ready to give up hope; she was cold, tired and had practically had enough. Her physical strength to to keep going was fading and the EPRB was pinging at longer intervals now as the battery was beginning to fail, and so taking longer to power up the capacitor that flashes the strobe. Gina by this time was weak and nauseous, almost incoherent but she carried on through the night.

The following morning Gina looked up to the east and could make out the lines of a warship silhouetted by the morning sun, the warship was an Auroran patrol Frigate that had detected the distress frequency transmission from Fitt’s EPRB and come over to take a peek at what was giving off the radio blip. As it neared Gina, a Lynx helicopter was dispatched and once airborne it flew over. As it flew over the water the crew had spotted Gina, slowly moving her arms. Soon after, a Zodiac boat was dispatched to bring Fitt in. Once aboard the warship, Fitt was sent straight to the medical centre where surgeons began working on Fitt’s leg, however it had to be amoutated.

As the medical team operated on Gina, the ship sailed to the last known location of the Celestia, to retrieve any bodies on the surface. Some 18 hours later, Fitt woke up in sickbay aboard the warship standing over her was one of the medical staff and the captain. Fitt was hooked up to an IV Nutrient feed to help Fitt recover as she was very weak, many feared she may not survive, however she did, gradually getting stronger thanks to the cocktail of medical nutrients and medical steroids that were being put into her system, however she was in a lot of pain, to which Fitt puts down to the propeller of the Terra Azuran boat that ran over her.

When the Naval ship reached Haven, the capital city of Khayr Var a few days later, Fitt was put into the forces hospital on the colony, where she continued to recover. Gina stayed in Port Haven for a couple of weeks whilst she recovered sufficiently to be transfered home. Once recovered Gina was transferred onto a Ministry of Defence flight from Port Haven back home to South Sands.

Gina returned to the Aurora Confederacy only to find that she was not to be included in her father’s will, with everything being sent to her brothers, and all items purchased by her father for Gina, were also to go to them, this left Gina with almost nothing except what she had purchased herself. Arriving home, though her mother and two brothers were made aware of the loss of the Celestia and that Gina was the only survivor, NO ONE in her family came to meet her, only a few relatives of fellow crewmen, yet to this day Fitt has never spoken to the rest of her family, instead being closer to the rest of the crew relatives than her own family.

In 2000, with her residual limb recovered to the point it could bare weight, Gina received her artificial leg which gave her some mobility back and so with practice she was able to walk again. When she took those first steps, someone was there to meet her in the rehabilitation centre, it was the captain of the warship that had rescued Fitt, to this day they remain in contact.

With compensation and the wages of life at sea, plus a business loan (now paid off) Fitt went into business in something safer, trucking. her contract with her truck was hauling foodstuffs to places in the north of the country, some of it to outlying communities that can only be resupplied in winter when the northern ocean freezes over allowing access to those communities

the story of the sinking was made into a movie called "Alone" which tells the story of the sinking and Gina's survival against the odds and is narrated by Gina herself


Roberta Greenwood
Name: Roberta Greenwood

Age: 32

Country of Origin: Mercantile Federal Republic of the Aurora Confederacy

Occupation: Fitt's business partner

Bio:: A few years younger than Fitt. Robbie is a victim of circumstances, put into care as a child, exploited by the welfare system that should have looked after her, made homeless at the age of 18 because the privately run care home saw her as 18 and no longer their responsibility, so after spending a week homeless on the streets aged 18, Robbie came across Fitt's place and was cought raiding the dumpster for food, it was there that she was taken in, given a place to stay and a roof over her head and importantly clean clothes and pride. As a result of Gina's kind and loving heart, Robbie and Gina have been living together ever since.

An assault in mid 2009 by a drunken youth left Robbie with heavily fractured legs which were amputated at the knees but now uses two prothetic legs that unlike those worn by Penny are not able to detect nerve impulses to ease walking, relying instead on a processor in the lower part of the leg, compared to Penny's they are "dumb" legs. just don't expect Fitt or Robbie to be willing to try and run a sprint race it isn't going to happen. Of the assault, Robbie doesn't remember most of it, just a glass bottle hitting her square in her face then waking up in hospital some time later without her legs from just above her knees.

Alright... as heralded/threatened, I will participate in this with a few of my people.
Warning, this app contains high amounts of Selkie! ; )
Also, please keep in mind, that some parts of the apps, like for example Commander Bratoi's Bio, are still WiP. They will be handed in as soon as they are available... I hope, that this does not mean my immediate disqualification.

Character Application - Captain Galen Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath
Name:
    Galen Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath.
Rank:
    Captain, SDF-Navy.
Age:
    46.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio:
    Galen was born in 1973 in Wembury, as son of two long-serving Naval Officers. His father, Commodore Liam Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath (vintage 1950), retired in 2005 as Commander, Naval Station Silverport. Galen, meanwhile, attended the Naval School as a Cadet, joined the Officer's Course in 1992, graduated from that with flying colours in 1998 as a Lieutenant. In 1997, he made a training cruise aboard the Sciath-class Corvette SDFS Ógbhean, the commanded by Captain Amy Curadh of the Tribe of Wicklow.
    In 2002, when the Zampa del Lupo visited Wembury, Galen was ranked Lieutenant Commander and was first officer of the Claíohm-class Frigate SDFS Claíleath. He was amongst the officers, who pooled in money for Ruvido, the Guarding Fox Plushie of Aurora Alce. He served aboard the SDFS Claíleath until 2006 on multiple missions. During that visit, he formed a lifelong bond with the Lutetiian Officer Antonio Caccia.
    In 2009, he, by now first officer of the Rhiannon-I-class Frigate SDFS Carman Fea and ranked Commander, was deployed to the Operation Glantachán in the Gainimh-Islands. From 2010 to 2012, he was the head of the Military Mission to the Gainimh-Islands, the peacekeeping force there. Early in 2012, he assumed command of the Claíleath. He commanded his ship gallantly during the Battle of Marley Bay, but she was heavily damaged and was decommissioned upon her return.
    He was transferred into a shore-position yet again, to the Liaison-Group to SDY, and helped during the development of the Maighdean-class Missile Cruiser. He was promoted to Captain along with that.
    In 2014, Galen was chosen as the Captain of the SDFS Maighdean, which was being built at the time, launched a year later. He commanded her during her shakedown cruises from 2016 to 2018, her commissioning, and then also took command of the newly re-formed 1st Cruiser Squadron of the SDF-Navy.
    He attended the 2019 Cuan Spring Festival with his friend Antonio Caccia.
    In 1999, he married his long-time girlfriend Celina Comrádaí of the Tribe of Westmeath, with whom he has two daughters (Asteria, 2000, and Finnya, 2005) and a son (Sirlám, 2003). The marriage broke apart in 2006 due to Galen being away from home, often on deployment, and a divorce having followed in 2008. In 2015, there were rumours of him having an affair with Gwen Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, but these weren't even commented.

Character Application - Aidan Bratoi of the Tribe of Wexford.
Name:
    Aidan Bratoi of the Tribe of Wexford.
Rank:
    Commander.
Age:
    41.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio:
    Aidan Bratoi of the Tribe of Wexford was born to a family of naval officers in 1978, literally near Fortham in a field, where his family celebrated a reunion - and, by the evening of that day, a birth. His mother was daughter of Admiral Yvain Neamhthábhach of the Tribe of Wexford, at the time Supreme Commander of the SDF, while his father was a young officer aboard SDFS Lodan Lir.
    His father fell in the line of duty on the opening day of the Second Vellenge War in 1983, when SDFS Lodan Lir was sunk.
    Aidan got into school in 1984, joining the Naval School in Wembury, joining the Cadet Cadre. He got to know his first wife there, who he married in 1998 - the marriage broke apart in 2001, childless. Main reason was, that he was a career officer and thus rarely at home. Upon Graduation as a Lieutenant in 2000, Aidan was not only best of his class but also assigned as a Lieutenant to SDFS Rhiannon, the Rhiannon-I-class Frigate.
    Promoted to Lieutenant Commander in 2005, he got taste of command in the Battle of Marley Bay in 2012, when the commander of his vessel was wounded by shrapnel and he took over command of his stricken vessel, leading her to safety.
    However, by 2010, his career had hit its peak, with a promotion to Commander in 2013 being his last - at the same time, he was assigned to SDFS Maighdean as her first officer under Captain Galen Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath. To him, this seems like a demotion by 2016, as he isn't going to sea - that changed with the shakedown cruises and the Cadet Cruises, leading him in 2019 all around the world, including to Port Ember.

Character Application - Fiona Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford.
Name:
    Fiona Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford.
Rank:
    Ensign.
Age:
    19.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio:
    Fiona was born in 2000 in Scilly as daughter of Ava Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford and Finnegan Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford, at the time Captain of the Scoth-class Corvette SDFS Sáiste, nowadays Commodore and commander of Naval Station Tipa. She was around the Navy from very early on, decided to make the Navy her career. She applied for the Naval School in 2009 and was accepted for the 2010 School Year onwards, passing the strict tests with flying colours.
    Originally a follower of Tank Sport, Fiona turned to Tankery or Sensha-Do in 2014 and joined the Puisíni upon their foundation, first as driver of a Faolchú Armoured Personnel Carrier, then as a commander. She still follows the Kyrenaian Tank Sport League and is a friend of Pina Tíogar of the Tribe of Wexford, one of the most well-known figure of the Realincse Fánaígh.
    In 2017, Fiona became the overall commander of the Team. In the same year, the entire team made a joint holiday trip to the Oileánra-Archipelago, where Fiona, Gwen and Kayla shared a room.
    After her graduation in 2018, Fiona joined the Officer's Training Programme of the SDF-Navy, hoping to be able to then to join the Regiment of SDF-Navy Troopers. In autumn of 2019, she made her first training cruise aboard SDFS Maighdean.

Name:
    Kayla Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo.
Rank:
    Ensign.
Age:
    19.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio:
    Born in 2000 in Perran to Liliane Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo and Finnegan Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo (at the time a platoon commander of the 14th Regiment of Hussars, nowadays commanding officer of the II./23rd, Kayla is what is typically called a military brat and as such, she decided to join the SDF from an early age - however, as it always drew her to new lands and strange places, she joined the Naval School in 2010, having passed the entrance tests half a year prior. There, she also met Fiona Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford.
    The two took a while to warm up to each other, but once they did, they were fast friends. However, Kayla did not share the other young woman's enthusiasm for Tank Sport at first - in 2012, Fiona took her to an exhibition match of the sport, where Kayla fell in love with the big machines used. Upon foundation of the Naval School Sensha-Do Team in 2016, she joined together with Fiona, although not with the same fervor. She began to drive the Faolchú Armoured Personnel Carrier Raicleabán-Aon for fun and soon became adept at it.
    After her graduation in 2018, Kayla joined the SDF-Navy and their Officer's Training Programme as an Ensign. She, crushing on Captain Galen Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath, would naturally prefer to be stationed aboard SDFS Maighdean. In autumn of 2019, her wish became a short-lived reality as she made her first training cruise aboard SDFS Maighdean.

Character Application - Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork.
Name:
    Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork.
Age:
    55.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Company Represented:
    Silverport Dockyards Limited.
Occupation:
    CEO.
Bio:
    Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, born in 1964 in Silverport is a Selkie businesswoman and shipwright, one of the co-founders of Silverport Dockyards Limited. Her father is Tyran Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, who founded the company in 1983.
    In 1970, she followed her mother's footsteps by joining the Axemaidens of Gavida, the God of Arts and Crafts, being a good woodcarver herself, becoming a laywoman of that Cult. In 2001, she was 'promoted' to Arcane Servant, a position she holds to this day.
    At the tender age of 23, after finishing the Merchant School of Laclan, she joined her father's company as his registered office. During these days, the company was mostly a repair yard, but in 1992, SDY entered a competition for the new corvettes of the SDF-Navy with the help of a young, genius engineer named Fynn Caillte of the Tribe of Cork.
    What began as a business relationship soon blossomed into love between the two, culminating in their marriage in 1988 and the birth of their daughter Gwen in 1989 (Gwen Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork is nowadays an accomplished engineer, forelady of Yard 15 and representative of SDY on a multitude of events).
    She became a widow in 1997, when a storm forced an amphibious assault ship of a friendly nation to limp to Silverport for an emergency checkup and said 40,000 tons of warship fell onto Fynn's head during the inspection of the keel. He wore a hardhat, as did the other 29 people crushed by the keel. Nora fought on and raised further in the ranks of SDY. In 2005, she added the Grey Wolf Sról to the family, who is to this day her daughter's pet.
    In 2009, her father retired and she took SDY's reins, expanding the company and forming strategic partnerships with Ironcastle Ironworks and Gabha Blacksmiths as well as several other companies in the Free Lands, preparing it for the international market, which the company entered in 2015.
    In 2016, during a ball in the Empire of Criska, where she travelled abroad to represent SDY, she met Major Lukas Praeton of the Criskan Air Force, with whom she started a relationship intended as a one-night-stand to fill the loneliness in her life for a night, resulting in a relationship and a pregnancy. In April 2017, she suffered from a miscarriage, naming the child in accordance to ancient custom the name she would have given it would it have been born, naming it Kyra Cathlong.
    In early 2019, Nora took the duties as representative of SDY in foreign countries due to her daughter's pregnancy.

Character Application - Raidri Gormchló of the Tribe of Fingal.
Name:
    Raidri Gormchló of the Tribe of Fingal.
Age:
    35.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Company Represented:
    Silverport Dockyards Limited.
Occupation:
    Engineer, Foreman of Yard 15.
Bio:
    Raidri Gormchló of the Tribe of Fingal was born in Tipa in 1984 and, from a rather young age, showed talent with machines, less so as a mechanic but more so as someone designing things and even building some of the mechanism he designed. In School, he was part of the Mechanical Club, even headed them in High School.
    After that, he went to Silverport to study engineering in 2004, specializing in Naval Engineering. During his studies, he got acquainted with both Gwen Cathlong and Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, who would soon become his employers - while he had talent, though, he could not compare to the genius and dedication to the craft of Gwen.
    He found a girlfriend in 2006, who he impregnated in 2009. The two tied the knot shortly afterwards. His son Áed came into the world in the Winter of 2009, Raidri's pride and joy. He graduated in 2010 and was hired off the bat by SDY, joining Yard 15 - it would take until 2019 until he found out, that Gwen had recommended him.
    He worked on several projects and parts of larger projects before being made head of Togra Aoibhneas, or Project Rapture, in 2016. In 2019, Radri was asked to become head of Yard 15 to replace Gwen Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, who left the company due to her pregnancy. He still heads Project Rapture, but is also responsible for heading Yard 15 as a Foreman.

Character Application - Yvain Saighead of the Tribe of Westmeath
Name:
    Yvain Saighead of the Tribe of Westmeath.
Age:
    47.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Company Represented:
    Silverport Dockyards Limited.
Occupation:
    Businessman.
Bio:
    Yvain Saighead of the Tribe of Westmeath was born in Wembury in 1972 and, due to the long-history of the city with seafaring and naval matters, always had a keen interest in seafaring - due to his father being the owner of a number of fishing vessels and two fish processing vessels, he had a solid entry into the matters of the sea. He had three older siblings, Eileen (born 1970, died 2017), Yvain (born 1969) and Gawain (born 1965).
    Yvain had an unassuming school career, only really excelling in Mathematics. In 1983, he applied for the Iris Boarding School Complex and was taken upon passing of the entrance exams. There, he got to know his future wife, Liliane Saighead of the Tribe of Westmeath, two years above him. She was a young firebrand and he fell in love with her at first sight, although she took her sweet time to return his feelings. The two separated upon graduation.
    He graduated in 1991 and began his studies in Leuda in 1992. By 1999, he had a Master's Degree and joined SDY instead of his father's company. As the youngest, he would have become an over-glorified secretary, he believed, and he wanted to have a bit more impact in the world then that. He met Liliane again and the two began to date each other in 2000. They married shortly after that, their first child, Isla being born in 2001.
    He made a career and by 2019, he was the liaison between SDY and its subsidiary Sciathan Limited in Riverwood. When news of Gwen Cathlong's pregnancy broke, he knew, that they would be searching for someone to replace her as representative of SDY abroad, but he did not imagine, that Nora Cathlong would choose him. He was correspondingly surprised.
    He had his trial by fire a few months later, when he attended the 2019 Ball at Schloss Zyng with his daughter.

Musician/Band Application - Leannáin
Size of Band:
    2.
Name(s) and instruments:
    Alaina Trasnaigh of the Tribe of Clonmel: Electric Guitarist and Main-Vocalist
    Layla Dearg of the Tribe of Waterford: Bass Guitarist and Secondary Vocalist.
Age(s):
    Alaina: 25.
    Layla: 25.
Country of Origin(s):
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio(s)/Band History:
    The two young women met first at the age of a few months, in their shared hometown of Ardán, near Inis. While their fathers got along well with each other, their mothers were old rivals and fought each other at any given and not-given opportunity.
    The band came to a wider critical acclaim in 2014, with the concept album Cross and Arrow, the larger thematic context being the Crusade between 1280 and 1325.
    In 2017, Layla's father died of a sudden stroke. That led to a creative pause, soon resulting in the album Crua ar chúis mhaith from 2018, focusing a lot on love and loss, but also on peace and tranquility. One of the songs, Ár mBlocha Cloiche, is to be seen as a memorial to Layla's Father and dedicated to him.
    After the Battle of Falernum, Leannáin and Disread were troop entertainment for the SDF-Forces in Sadera, a bit of a reward for the men and women. They toured the stations, where the SDF was deployed, including their humanitarian efforts, and played two concerts.
    From 2019, with Disread's shift to harder rock, Leannain discovered influences from Power Metal and adapted them to their needs, delivering 2019's Arís sa Sárú arís.

Age:
    25.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Occupation:
    "Adult Movie Actress", trying to branch out into other movies.
Bio:
    Cecilia Umhal of the Tribe of Sligo was born in 1994 in Scilly as daughter of two craftspeople.
    In 2007, she was recruited by Bicíní Industries, but was quickly laid off by the company as she proved to not be a good model, having multiple issues with her bosses - she had found a liking to the camera, though, and soon got hired as a model by the Gníomhaireacht Model Agency. There, she was and is a pin-up girl, appearing in a multitude of calendars over the next decade.
    It was there, where someone had the idea of introducing her into the "Adult Movie Business". First, she hesitated, but soon found a liking to it.
    In 2015, she was approached to speak some supporting roles for Marla by Sicín Studios, her employer approving of her straying from her paths in order to participate - apparently, her voice acting was met with so much success, that she was taken under contract by Sicín Studios for dubbing and voice acting work. During her time there, she also joined the Cabhair Group in 2017.
    In 2019, she accompanied Dísréad to the 2019 Preetz Mittsommer Festival, doing research for her acting debut in 2020's The Singer.

    Being pregnant.
Bio:
    Gwen was born in 1989 in Silverport as the daughter of Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, one of the founders and actual CEO of Silverport Dockyards. With her father dying early, she was raised by both her mother and her grandfather Tyran Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, Master of his House. Her pet, the domesticated Grey Wolf Sról, was given to her in 2005.
    She went to school, trained her dog, obtained the hobby of Horseriding (she still sometimes participates in contests as a swordrider and lancer), and made her Master of Engineering at the University of Silverport, specialized in shipbuilding, in 2013.
    Gwen joined her mother's business, working her way up and becoming forelady of Yard 15, Prototype Development and Silverport Dockyard's girl for everything, including missions to foreign lands.
    In 2019, she attended the commissioning ceremony of FTS Challenger, during which she became acquainted with Jan Breytenbach, the Port Embrian Minister of Defense, with whom she fell in love after a one-night-stand, which left her pregnant. She stepped down from all positions within SDY on April 1st and placed herself at free disposal of her CEO.
    Together with Jan, she attended the 2019 Cuan Spring Festival and introduced him to her mother and her her Grandfather. The birth is due in October 2019.

Character Application - Fiona Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan
Name:
    Fiona Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan.
Age:
    32.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Occupation:
    Business woman (Gabha Blacksmiths Ltd.), Servant to Carman Fea.
Bio:
    Fiona Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan is the daughter of Finn and Gwen Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan, born in 1987 in Traverse on Farpoint Island as the first of three children (two younger brothers, Tyran and Glynn). Not a Princess in the strict sense, Fiona is the daughter of a Clan Chief (her mother). She plans on keeping her mother's title in the family.
    When she was fifteen, an Aunt and an Uncle (Cecilia and Raidri Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Waterford) of her died in a plane crash, their little son being given to her family for the time being before it was decided, what was to happen to him. Her mother decided, that Fiona was to feed him and, after a crash course, she began to breastfeed the child for a few months. When he was taken to the Aunt's family, she cried. She later characterized these times as a 'difficult time' for her. As a sort-of replacement, her mother got her Sio, a Curly Mountain Fox, from a breeder, who was breastfed by her for three days during the so-called Milk Desaster, who soon after joined her bed.
    Having studied economics at the relatively small Traverse University, Fiona is prepared and willing to take over the family business, Gabha Blacksmiths Ltd., and lead it to the same recognition and fame as other companies of the Free Lands.
    She is seen as the more ideal candidate for this position by the Clan Members because she has more merit then her brothers: Although Tyran is the Steward of Arbhar House near Ironcastle, he is only taking care of the land, not expanding it, while Glynn is mostly occupied with his participation in Horseriding tournaments, where he starts as a lancer. Fiona meanwhile got Gabha several rather rewarding commissions, expanded the business to include several other branches and cleaned up the whole company administration.

Wonderfull! There is only one stage ATM, but if there is too many musicians I would take you up on that offer.


That would give an area 2.5x13.6m

Excellent!! Awaiting your application with much excitement! Please note however, as according to the rules - regrettably only one warship per nation is allowed. This is due to the limited size of the dock. There are more and larger suitable docks around the island - but its too far away from the University and defeats the point of attending.

    Captain, SDF-Navy.
Age:
    46.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio:
    Galen was born in 1973 in Wembury, as son of two long-serving Naval Officers. His father, Commodore Liam Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath (vintage 1950), retired in 2005 as Commander, Naval Station Silverport. Galen, meanwhile, attended the Naval School as a Cadet, joined the Officer's Course in 1992, graduated from that with flying colours in 1998 as a Lieutenant. In 1997, he made a training cruise aboard the Sciath-class Corvette SDFS Ógbhean, the commanded by Captain Amy Curadh of the Tribe of Wicklow.
    In 2002, when the Zampa del Lupo visited Wembury, Galen was ranked Lieutenant Commander and was first officer of the Claíohm-class Frigate SDFS Claíleath. He was amongst the officers, who pooled in money for Ruvido, the Guarding Fox Plushie of Aurora Alce. He served aboard the SDFS Claíleath until 2006 on multiple missions. During that visit, he formed a lifelong bond with the Lutetiian Officer Antonio Caccia.
    In 2009, he, by now first officer of the Rhiannon-I-class Frigate SDFS Carman Fea and ranked Commander, was deployed to the Operation Glantachán in the Gainimh-Islands. From 2010 to 2012, he was the head of the Military Mission to the Gainimh-Islands, the peacekeeping force there. Early in 2012, he assumed command of the Claíleath. He commanded his ship gallantly during the Battle of Marley Bay, but she was heavily damaged and was decommissioned upon her return.
    He was transferred into a shore-position yet again, to the Liaison-Group to SDY, and helped during the development of the Maighdean-class Missile Cruiser. He was promoted to Captain along with that.
    In 2014, Galen was chosen as the Captain of the SDFS Maighdean, which was being built at the time, launched a year later. He commanded her during her shakedown cruises from 2016 to 2018, her commissioning, and then also took command of the newly re-formed 1st Cruiser Squadron of the SDF-Navy.
    He attended the 2019 Cuan Spring Festival with his friend Antonio Caccia.
    In 1999, he married his long-time girlfriend Celina Comrádaí of the Tribe of Westmeath, with whom he has two daughters (Asteria, 2000, and Finnya, 2005) and a son (Sirlám, 2003). The marriage broke apart in 2006 due to Galen being away from home, often on deployment, and a divorce having followed in 2008. In 2015, there were rumours of him having an affair with Gwen Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, but these weren't even commented.

    Fiona was born in 2000 in Scilly as daughter of Ava Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford and Finnegan Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford, at the time Captain of the Scoth-class Corvette SDFS Sáiste, nowadays Commodore and commander of Naval Station Tipa. She was around the Navy from very early on, decided to make the Navy her career. She applied for the Naval School in 2009 and was accepted for the 2010 School Year onwards, passing the strict tests with flying colours.
    Originally a follower of Tank Sport, Fiona turned to Tankery or Sensha-Do in 2014 and joined the Puisíni upon their foundation, first as driver of a Faolchú Armoured Personnel Carrier, then as a commander. She still follows the Kyrenaian Tank Sport League and is a friend of Pina Tíogar of the Tribe of Wexford, one of the most well-known figure of the Realincse Fánaígh.
    In 2017, Fiona became the overall commander of the Team. In the same year, the entire team made a joint holiday trip to the Oileánra-Archipelago, where Fiona, Gwen and Kayla shared a room.
    After her graduation in 2018, Fiona joined the Officer's Training Programme of the SDF-Navy, hoping to be able to then to join the Regiment of SDF-Navy Troopers. In autumn of 2019, she made her first training cruise aboard SDFS Maighdean.

Bio:
    Born in 2000 in Perran to Liliane Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo and Finnegan Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo (at the time a platoon commander of the 14th Regiment of Hussars, nowadays commanding officer of the II./23rd, Kayla is what is typically called a military brat and as such, she decided to join the SDF from an early age - however, as it always drew her to new lands and strange places, she joined the Naval School in 2010, having passed the entrance tests half a year prior. There, she also met Fiona Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford.
    The two took a while to warm up to each other, but once they did, they were fast friends. However, Kayla did not share the other young woman's enthusiasm for Tank Sport at first - in 2012, Fiona took her to an exhibition match of the sport, where Kayla fell in love with the big machines used. Upon foundation of the Naval School Sensha-Do Team in 2016, she joined together with Fiona, although not with the same fervor. She began to drive the Faolchú Armoured Personnel Carrier Raicleabán-Aon for fun and soon became adept at it.
    After her graduation in 2018, Kayla joined the SDF-Navy and their Officer's Training Programme as an Ensign. She, crushing on Captain Galen Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath, would naturally prefer to be stationed aboard SDFS Maighdean. In autumn of 2019, her wish became a short-lived reality as she made her first training cruise aboard SDFS Maighdean.

Character Application - Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork.
Name:
    Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork.
Age:
    55.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Company Represented:
    Silverport Dockyards Limited.
Occupation:
    CEO.
Bio:
    Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, born in 1964 in Silverport is a Selkie businesswoman and shipwright, one of the co-founders of Silverport Dockyards Limited. Her father is Tyran Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, who founded the company in 1983.
    In 1970, she followed her mother's footsteps by joining the Axemaidens of Gavida, the God of Arts and Crafts, being a good woodcarver herself, becoming a laywoman of that Cult. In 2001, she was 'promoted' to Arcane Servant, a position she holds to this day.
    At the tender age of 23, after finishing the Merchant School of Laclan, she joined her father's company as his registered office. During these days, the company was mostly a repair yard, but in 1992, SDY entered a competition for the new corvettes of the SDF-Navy with the help of a young, genius engineer named Fynn Caillte of the Tribe of Cork.
    What began as a business relationship soon blossomed into love between the two, culminating in their marriage in 1988 and the birth of their daughter Gwen in 1989 (Gwen Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork is nowadays an accomplished engineer, forelady of Yard 15 and representative of SDY on a multitude of events).
    She became a widow in 1997, when a storm forced an amphibious assault ship of a friendly nation to limp to Silverport for an emergency checkup and said 40,000 tons of warship fell onto Fynn's head during the inspection of the keel. He wore a hardhat, as did the other 29 people crushed by the keel. Nora fought on and raised further in the ranks of SDY. In 2005, she added the Grey Wolf Sról to the family, who is to this day her daughter's pet.
    In 2009, her father retired and she took SDY's reins, expanding the company and forming strategic partnerships with Ironcastle Ironworks and Gabha Blacksmiths as well as several other companies in the Free Lands, preparing it for the international market, which the company entered in 2015.
    In 2016, during a ball in the Empire of Criska, where she travelled abroad to represent SDY, she met Major Lukas Praeton of the Criskan Air Force, with whom she started a relationship intended as a one-night-stand to fill the loneliness in her life for a night, resulting in a relationship and a pregnancy. In April 2017, she suffered from a miscarriage, naming the child in accordance to ancient custom the name she would have given it would it have been born, naming it Kyra Cathlong.
    In early 2019, Nora took the duties as representative of SDY in foreign countries due to her daughter's pregnancy.

    Layla Dearg of the Tribe of Waterford: Bass Guitarist and Secondary Vocalist.
Age(s):
    Alaina: 25.
    Layla: 25.
Country of Origin(s):
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio(s)/Band History:
    The two young women met first at the age of a few months, in their shared hometown of Ardán, near Inis. While their fathers got along well with each other, their mothers were old rivals and fought each other at any given and not-given opportunity.
    The band came to a wider critical acclaim in 2014, with the concept album Cross and Arrow, the larger thematic context being the Crusade between 1280 and 1325.
    In 2017, Layla's father died of a sudden stroke. That led to a creative pause, soon resulting in the album Crua ar chúis mhaith from 2018, focusing a lot on love and loss, but also on peace and tranquility. One of the songs, Ár mBlocha Cloiche, is to be seen as a memorial to Layla's Father and dedicated to him.
    After the Battle of Falernum, Leannáin and Disread were troop entertainment for the SDF-Forces in Sadera, a bit of a reward for the men and women. They toured the stations, where the SDF was deployed, including their humanitarian efforts, and played two concerts.
    From 2019, with Disread's shift to harder rock, Leannain discovered influences from Power Metal and adapted them to their needs, delivering 2019's Arís sa Sárú arís.
Appearance:
Genre:
    Selkie-Rock.
Track List to be performed:
    Cúrsaí Síochána (Hounds of Peace).
    Coinnigh na costais go léir (Hold at all costs).
    Dínit Trodaí (Dignity of a Warrior).
    Seo deoch do na fir go léir (Here's a Drink to all the Men).
    Tine, Claíomh agus Creideamh (Fire, Sword and Faith).
    Mallacht an Mharthanóra (The Curse of the Survivor).

    Plus an eventual encore.

Character Application - Cecilia Umhal of the Tribe of Sligo
Name:
    Cecilia Umhal of the Tribe of Sligo.
Age:
    25.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Occupation:
    "Adult Movie Actress", trying to branch out into other movies.
Bio:
    Cecilia Umhal of the Tribe of Sligo was born in 1994 in Scilly as daughter of two craftspeople.
    In 2007, she was recruited by Bicíní Industries, but was quickly laid off by the company as she proved to not be a good model, having multiple issues with her bosses - she had found a liking to the camera, though, and soon got hired as a model by the Gníomhaireacht Model Agency. There, she was and is a pin-up girl, appearing in a multitude of calendars over the next decade.
    It was there, where someone had the idea of introducing her into the "Adult Movie Business". First, she hesitated, but soon found a liking to it.
    In 2015, she was approached to speak some supporting roles for Marla by Sicín Studios, her employer approving of her straying from her paths in order to participate - apparently, her voice acting was met with so much success, that she was taken under contract by Sicín Studios for dubbing and voice acting work. During her time there, she also joined the Cabhair Group in 2017.
    In 2019, she accompanied Dísréad to the 2019 Preetz Mittsommer Festival, doing research for her acting debut in 2020's The Singer.

    Gwen Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork.
Age:

Country of Origin:

Occupation:
    Being pregnant.
Bio:
    Gwen was born in 1989 in Silverport as the daughter of Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, one of the founders and actual CEO of Silverport Dockyards. With her father dying early, she was raised by both her mother and her grandfather Tyran Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, Master of his House. Her pet, the domesticated Grey Wolf Sról, was given to her in 2005.
    She went to school, trained her dog, obtained the hobby of Horseriding (she still sometimes participates in contests as a swordrider and lancer), and made her Master of Engineering at the University of Silverport, specialized in shipbuilding, in 2013.
    Gwen joined her mother's business, working her way up and becoming forelady of Yard 15, Prototype Development and Silverport Dockyard's girl for everything, including missions to foreign lands.
    In 2019, she attended the commissioning ceremony of FTS Challenger, during which she became acquainted with Jan Breytenbach, the Port Embrian Minister of Defense, with whom she fell in love after a one-night-stand, which left her pregnant. She stepped down from all positions within SDY on April 1st and placed herself at free disposal of her CEO.
    Together with Jan, she attended the 2019 Cuan Spring Festival and introduced him to her mother and her her Grandfather. The birth is due in October 2019.

Character Application - Fiona Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan
Name:
    Fiona Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan.
Age:
    32.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Occupation:
    Business woman (Gabha Blacksmiths Ltd.), Servant to Carman Fea.
Bio:
    Fiona Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan is the daughter of Finn and Gwen Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan, born in 1987 in Traverse on Farpoint Island as the first of three children (two younger brothers, Tyran and Glynn). Not a Princess in the strict sense, Fiona is the daughter of a Clan Chief (her mother). She plans on keeping her mother's title in the family.
    When she was fifteen, an Aunt and an Uncle (Cecilia and Raidri Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Waterford) of her died in a plane crash, their little son being given to her family for the time being before it was decided, what was to happen to him. Her mother decided, that Fiona was to feed him and, after a crash course, she began to breastfeed the child for a few months. When he was taken to the Aunt's family, she cried. She later characterized these times as a 'difficult time' for her. As a sort-of replacement, her mother got her Sio, a Curly Mountain Fox, from a breeder, who was breastfed by her for three days during the so-called Milk Desaster, who soon after joined her bed.
    Having studied economics at the relatively small Traverse University, Fiona is prepared and willing to take over the family business, Gabha Blacksmiths Ltd., and lead it to the same recognition and fame as other companies of the Free Lands.
    She is seen as the more ideal candidate for this position by the Clan Members because she has more merit then her brothers: Although Tyran is the Steward of Arbhar House near Ironcastle, he is only taking care of the land, not expanding it, while Glynn is mostly occupied with his participation in Horseriding tournaments, where he starts as a lancer. Fiona meanwhile got Gabha several rather rewarding commissions, expanded the business to include several other branches and cleaned up the whole company administration.

Looking good, glad to have an Ally attending. Your application is pending atm, as I have a few notes:

- I unfortunately do require an image of Commander Miles.

- I humbly request that you once again browse through the rules, as I require s specific answer to the question 'Have you read and understood the rules', which is different to the 'Yes' you offered.

- I normally demand a RP sample, but will make an exception to your account, as this is a special case.

- Thanks for the effort!

Please note however that his attendance would be 'Officially unofficial', meaning that PE recognises his attendance, but no official matters would be dealt with during the day, as no politicians are cleared to conduct political business on the day in question.

She was around the Navy from very early on, decided to make the Navy her career. She applied for the Naval School in 2009 and was accepted for the 2010 School Year onwards, passing the strict tests with flying colours.
    Originally a follower of Tank Sport, Fiona turned to Tankery or Sensha-Do in 2014 and joined the Puisíni upon their foundation, first as driver of a Faolchú Armoured Personnel Carrier, then as a commander. She still follows the Kyrenaian Tank Sport League and is a friend of Pina Tíogar of the Tribe of Wexford, one of the most well-known figure of the Realincse Fánaígh.
    In 2017, Fiona became the overall commander of the Team. In the same year, the entire team made a joint holiday trip to the Oileánra-Archipelago, where Fiona, Gwen and Kayla shared a room.
    After her graduation in 2018, Fiona joined the Officer's Training Programme of the SDF-Navy, hoping to be able to then to join the Regiment of SDF-Navy Troopers. In autumn of 2019, she made her first training cruise aboard SDFS Maighdean.

Age:

Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio:
    Born in 2000 in Perran to Liliane Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo and Finnegan Urchair of the Tribe of Sligo (at the time a platoon commander of the 14th Regiment of Hussars, nowadays commanding officer of the II./23rd, Kayla is what is typically called a military brat and as such, she decided to join the SDF from an early age - however, as it always drew her to new lands and strange places, she joined the Naval School in 2010, having passed the entrance tests half a year prior. There, she also met Fiona Bláth of the Tribe of Wexford.
    The two took a while to warm up to each other, but once they did, they were fast friends. However, Kayla did not share the other young woman's enthusiasm for Tank Sport at first - in 2012, Fiona took her to an exhibition match of the sport, where Kayla fell in love with the big machines used. Upon foundation of the Naval School Sensha-Do Team in 2016, she joined together with Fiona, although not with the same fervor. She began to drive the Faolchú Armoured Personnel Carrier Raicleabán-Aon for fun and soon became adept at it.
    After her graduation in 2018, Kayla joined the SDF-Navy and their Officer's Training Programme as an Ensign. She, crushing on Captain Galen Trodaí of the Tribe of Westmeath, would naturally prefer to be stationed aboard SDFS Maighdean. In autumn of 2019, her wish became a short-lived reality as she made her first training cruise aboard SDFS Maighdean.

Character Application - Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork.
Name:
    Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork.
Age:
    55.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Company Represented:
    Silverport Dockyards Limited.
Occupation:
    CEO.
Bio:
    Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, born in 1964 in Silverport is a Selkie businesswoman and shipwright, one of the co-founders of Silverport Dockyards Limited. Her father is Tyran Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, who founded the company in 1983.
    In 1970, she followed her mother's footsteps by joining the Axemaidens of Gavida, the God of Arts and Crafts, being a good woodcarver herself, becoming a laywoman of that Cult. In 2001, she was 'promoted' to Arcane Servant, a position she holds to this day.
    At the tender age of 23, after finishing the Merchant School of Laclan, she joined her father's company as his registered office. During these days, the company was mostly a repair yard, but in 1992, SDY entered a competition for the new corvettes of the SDF-Navy with the help of a young, genius engineer named Fynn Caillte of the Tribe of Cork.
    What began as a business relationship soon blossomed into love between the two, culminating in their marriage in 1988 and the birth of their daughter Gwen in 1989 (Gwen Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork is nowadays an accomplished engineer, forelady of Yard 15 and representative of SDY on a multitude of events).
    She became a widow in 1997, when a storm forced an amphibious assault ship of a friendly nation to limp to Silverport for an emergency checkup and said 40,000 tons of warship fell onto Fynn's head during the inspection of the keel. He wore a hardhat, as did the other 29 people crushed by the keel. Nora fought on and raised further in the ranks of SDY. In 2005, she added the Grey Wolf Sról to the family, who is to this day her daughter's pet.
    In 2009, her father retired and she took SDY's reins, expanding the company and forming strategic partnerships with Ironcastle Ironworks and Gabha Blacksmiths as well as several other companies in the Free Lands, preparing it for the international market, which the company entered in 2015.
    In 2016, during a ball in the Empire of Criska, where she travelled abroad to represent SDY, she met Major Lukas Praeton of the Criskan Air Force, with whom she started a relationship intended as a one-night-stand to fill the loneliness in her life for a night, resulting in a relationship and a pregnancy. In April 2017, she suffered from a miscarriage, naming the child in accordance to ancient custom the name she would have given it would it have been born, naming it Kyra Cathlong.
    In early 2019, Nora took the duties as representative of SDY in foreign countries due to her daughter's pregnancy.

Musician/Band Application - Leannáin
Size of Band:
    2.
Name(s) and instruments:
    Alaina Trasnaigh of the Tribe of Clonmel: Electric Guitarist and Main-Vocalist
    Layla Dearg of the Tribe of Waterford: Bass Guitarist and Secondary Vocalist.
Age(s):
    Alaina: 25.
    Layla: 25.
Country of Origin(s):
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Bio(s)/Band History:
    The two young women met first at the age of a few months, in their shared hometown of Ardán, near Inis. While their fathers got along well with each other, their mothers were old rivals and fought each other at any given and not-given opportunity.
    The band came to a wider critical acclaim in 2014, with the concept album Cross and Arrow, the larger thematic context being the Crusade between 1280 and 1325.
    In 2017, Layla's father died of a sudden stroke. That led to a creative pause, soon resulting in the album Crua ar chúis mhaith from 2018, focusing a lot on love and loss, but also on peace and tranquility. One of the songs, Ár mBlocha Cloiche, is to be seen as a memorial to Layla's Father and dedicated to him.
    After the Battle of Falernum, Leannáin and Disread were troop entertainment for the SDF-Forces in Sadera, a bit of a reward for the men and women. They toured the stations, where the SDF was deployed, including their humanitarian efforts, and played two concerts.
    From 2019, with Disread's shift to harder rock, Leannain discovered influences from Power Metal and adapted them to their needs, delivering 2019's Arís sa Sárú arís.
Appearance:
Genre:
    Selkie-Rock.

Age:
    25.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Occupation:
    "Adult Movie Actress", trying to branch out into other movies.
Bio:
    Cecilia Umhal of the Tribe of Sligo was born in 1994 in Scilly as daughter of two craftspeople.
    In 2007, she was recruited by Bicíní Industries, but was quickly laid off by the company as she proved to not be a good model, having multiple issues with her bosses - she had found a liking to the camera, though, and soon got hired as a model by the Gníomhaireacht Model Agency. There, she was and is a pin-up girl, appearing in a multitude of calendars over the next decade.
    It was there, where someone had the idea of introducing her into the "Adult Movie Business". First, she hesitated, but soon found a liking to it.
    In 2015, she was approached to speak some supporting roles for Marla by Sicín Studios, her employer approving of her straying from her paths in order to participate - apparently, her voice acting was met with so much success, that she was taken under contract by Sicín Studios for dubbing and voice acting work. During her time there, she also joined the Cabhair Group in 2017.
    In 2019, she accompanied Dísréad to the 2019 Preetz Mittsommer Festival, doing research for her acting debut in 2020's The Singer.

Occupation:
    Being pregnant.
Bio:
    Gwen was born in 1989 in Silverport as the daughter of Nora Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, one of the founders and actual CEO of Silverport Dockyards. With her father dying early, she was raised by both her mother and her grandfather Tyran Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork, Master of his House. Her pet, the domesticated Grey Wolf Sról, was given to her in 2005.
    She went to school, trained her dog, obtained the hobby of Horseriding (she still sometimes participates in contests as a swordrider and lancer), and made her Master of Engineering at the University of Silverport, specialized in shipbuilding, in 2013.
    Gwen joined her mother's business, working her way up and becoming forelady of Yard 15, Prototype Development and Silverport Dockyard's girl for everything, including missions to foreign lands.
    In 2019, she attended the commissioning ceremony of FTS Challenger, during which she became acquainted with Jan Breytenbach, the Port Embrian Minister of Defense, with whom she fell in love after a one-night-stand, which left her pregnant. She stepped down from all positions within SDY on April 1st and placed herself at free disposal of her CEO.
    Together with Jan, she attended the 2019 Cuan Spring Festival and introduced him to her mother and her her Grandfather. The birth is due in October 2019.

Character Application - Fiona Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan
Name:
    Fiona Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan.
Age:
    32.
Country of Origin:
    Free Lands of the Selkie.
Occupation:
    Business woman (Gabha Blacksmiths Ltd.), Servant to Carman Fea.
Bio:
    Fiona Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan is the daughter of Finn and Gwen Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Cavan, born in 1987 in Traverse on Farpoint Island as the first of three children (two younger brothers, Tyran and Glynn). Not a Princess in the strict sense, Fiona is the daughter of a Clan Chief (her mother). She plans on keeping her mother's title in the family.
    When she was fifteen, an Aunt and an Uncle (Cecilia and Raidri Banphrionsa of the Tribe of Waterford) of her died in a plane crash, their little son being given to her family for the time being before it was decided, what was to happen to him. Her mother decided, that Fiona was to feed him and, after a crash course, she began to breastfeed the child for a few months. When he was taken to the Aunt's family, she cried. She later characterized these times as a 'difficult time' for her. As a sort-of replacement, her mother got her Sio, a Curly Mountain Fox, from a breeder, who was breastfed by her for three days during the so-called Milk Desaster, who soon after joined her bed.
    Having studied economics at the relatively small Traverse University, Fiona is prepared and willing to take over the family business, Gabha Blacksmiths Ltd., and lead it to the same recognition and fame as other companies of the Free Lands.
    She is seen as the more ideal candidate for this position by the Clan Members because she has more merit then her brothers: Although Tyran is the Steward of Arbhar House near Ironcastle, he is only taking care of the land, not expanding it, while Glynn is mostly occupied with his participation in Horseriding tournaments, where he starts as a lancer. Fiona meanwhile got Gabha several rather rewarding commissions, expanded the business to include several other branches and cleaned up the whole company administration.

Character Application

Name: Euphoria Kitos

Age: 20

Country of Origin: Sophistan

Occupation: Sociologist/ social documentary.


Bio: Euphoria was born in 1999 in Polis. She was very successful in her time at the Education Center because she has a talent for writing and drawing. This ensured that the young sophist was assigned to the caste of wisdom at age 15, and now became part of the higher society of Sophistan. She studied sociology and accepted a job as a "social documentary". This is a representative with the task to travel to foreign countries and to record the social situation there. A recommendation should be made as to whether society is compatible with the Platonic-epistocratic principles of Sophistan. Euphoria now got an order to travel to Port Ember to attend a feast day there. She should look at and evaluate the culture and mentality of the people.

Age: 22

Country of Origin: Sophistan

Occupation: Sociologist/ social documentary.


Bio: Elias was born in 1997 and is two years older than his sister Euphoria. He also showed amazing performance in the education center and was best known for his strong patriotism. As a 13-year-old he drew the flag of the Confederation very often and read the Greek classics. At 15, he was chosen for the caste of wisdom. He studied sociology and political science for a year, but gave it up. He had a hard time finding a suitable job. Since Sophistan had a work obligation, he took on various jobs as a customs officer or committee member. Nothing seemed to fit, as his sister also obtained him a job as a social documentary. His first assignment is to accompany his sister to Port Ember to help her.

I do not think the whole nudity thing works for you. It would of course be logical that at least Elias as a hardcore patriot is naked in protest. But you can write, if that would fit, otherwise I find a way out.

Character Application

Name: Euphoria Kitos

Age: 20

Country of Origin: Sophistan

Occupation: Sociologist/ social documentary.


Bio: Euphoria was born in 1999 in Polis. She was very successful in her time at the Education Center because she has a talent for writing and drawing. This ensured that the young sophist was assigned to the caste of wisdom at age 15, and now became part of the higher society of Sophistan. She studied sociology and accepted a job as a "social documentary". This is a representative with the task to travel to foreign countries and to record the social situation there. A recommendation should be made as to whether society is compatible with the Platonic-epistocratic principles of Sophistan. Euphoria now got an order to travel to Port Ember to attend a feast day there. She should look at and evaluate the culture and mentality of the people.

Name: Elias Kitos

Age: 22

Country of Origin: Sophistan

Occupation: Sociologist/ social documentary.


Bio: Elias was born in 1997 and is two years older than his sister Euphoria. He also showed amazing performance in the education center and was best known for his strong patriotism. As a 13-year-old he drew the flag of the Confederation very often and read the Greek classics. At 15, he was chosen for the caste of wisdom. He studied sociology and political science for a year, but gave it up. He had a hard time finding a suitable job. Since Sophistan had a work obligation, he took on various jobs as a customs officer or committee member. Nothing seemed to fit, as his sister also obtained him a job as a social documentary. His first assignment is to accompany his sister to Port Ember to help her.

I do not think the whole nudity thing works for you. It would of course be logical that at least Elias as a hardcore patriot is naked in protest. But you can write, if that would fit, otherwise I find a way out.


Okay so after we worked out the technical kinks regarding the nudity, both apps have been Accepted!

Thanks for the effort and looking forward to having you!
