CHARACTER APPLICATION
Name: Lucerys Velaryon
House: Velaryon
Age: 38
Gender: Male
Titles:
Lord of the Tides
Master of Driftmark
Master of Ships
House Seat: Driftmark
Allegiance paid to: House Targaryen
Appearance:
Image

Personality: Lucerys is a man who knows his duty and seeks to perform it admirably. But as a sailor, Lucerys also knows the importance of relaxing. He has been known to carouse through port cities with a flagon in one hand and a maid in the other.
Skills: Lucerys is a skilled fighter, trained from a young age by Driftmark's master-at-arms. He is also a masterful commander and is peerless in naval combat.
Weaponry : Steel longsword
Biography : Lucerys Velaryon is the scion of a once great and powerful house. Though he would never admit it publicly, house Vealryon is a shadow of the house it once was. Gone are the days of the Sea Snake and the Oakenfist. But, Lucerys is determined to restore the power and prestige of his house. To that end he has sought and received a seat on the small council and maintained the trust of King Aerys II. Though that task has remained difficult with the king's growing madness. Every move Lucerys makes is now carefully calculated for the ripples it may cause.

Lucerys' caution and fear has grown greater in recent days. With the executions of Elia, Rhaenys, and Aegon and the naming of Rhaegar as a traitor, Lucerys questions his loyalty to the Mad King. In a bid of desperation Lucerys has arranged for his own son, Monford, and a sworn shield to be smuggled out of King's Landing aboard a merchant ship bound for Dragonstone. Lucerys can sense an impending war to split the realm. He prays for the wisdom to see his house through the struggle.

EXISTING HOUSE APPLICATION
House Name: House Velaryon
House Sigil:
Image

House Words: The Old, the True, the Brave
Allegiance Paid to: House Targaryen
Approx Number of military at command: 1,000 men, a dozen warships
History of the House: Boasting an ancient lineage, the Velaryon bloodline flows back to the Valyrian Freehold. While never dragon lords, the Velaryons were masters upon the waves. They settled in the Gullet on the island of Driftmark. In time they would swear allegiance to the Targaryens who came to inhabit the neighboring island of Dragonstone. The Velaryons faithfully served Aegon the Conqueror and rewarded with the title of master of ships, which often passed from father to son.

For centuries the Velaryons would remain close to the Iron Throne and were often married to Targaryen princes and princesses. House Velaryon even sired a number of famed dragon riders. However, during the Dance of Dragons the Velaryons faced a turn of fortunes. The island of Driftmark was sacked by a fleet from Essos and a great number of ships were lost. The Velaryons would slip from their former lofty positions, but remained ever loyal to their Tragaryen cousins and a naval power in the Gullet and narrow sea.

I usually do not use Discord in RPs, I find it ads an extra layer that detracts from the OOC.
If it would be useful to everyone though, I can create one.

Name: Tywin Lannister
House: Lannister
Age: 41
Gender: Male
Titles: Lord of the Westerlands, Lord of Casterly Rock, Warden of the West
House Seat: Lord of Casterly Rock
Allegiance paid to: The Iron Throne
Appearance : Here.
Personality: Tywin's motivation is simple; he wishes to further the Lannister family and name in terms of rank and status. Ambitious, ruthless, cruel where necessary but not needlessly so, and possessed of a will of pure iron.
Skills: Tywin is, first and foremost, a commander and an administrator; although not an accomplished warrior, he is a capable commander on the field of battle, but his true talents lie in the higher levels of administration and strategy, especially in political strategy.
Weaponry: Sword and lance.
Biography: Not much needs to be said for Tywin Lannister. He found the Westerlands in disarray when he inherited them from his weak father, and swiftly set about correcting that. The Reynes and Tarbecks were destroyed with customary brutality, bringing the Westerlands firmly back under the Lannister heel. Tywin's relationships with both Rhaegar and Aerys are fraught with difficulty; the former, he has never quite forgiven for marrying Elia Martell over his own daughter Cersei, while the latter has his eldest son Jamie hostage as a member of the Kingsguard in King's Landing, nor as Tywin forgiven Aerys for his treatment of his now-deceased wife Joanna or the appointment of his heir to the Kingsguard. Tywin broods in Casterly Rock with no love for both sides, but he is a cunning and ruthless man who will not pass up an opportunity like this to advance House Lannister even further.
RP Example: Here.
Notes: Jamie, Cersei, Gerion, Tygett and Stafford Lannister, Gregor Clegane

House Name: House Lannister
House Sigil: Here.
House Words: Hear Me Roar. Equally as well known, if not the actual words themselves, are A Lannister Always Pays His Debts.
Allegiance Paid to: The Iron Throne.
Approx Number of military at command: 50,000 men, of which approx 1/4 are cavalry.
History of the House: House Lannister are an old and proud house, being brought under the Targaryens following the Field of Fire. They have remained rather aloof from the politics of the realm at large, remaining neutral during the Dance of the Dragons, and reluctantly siding with the crown during the Blackfyre Rebellions. Tywin's ambitions marked the first movement of the Lannisters towards greater prominence in the realm, proposing that Cersei marry Rhaegar but being rebuffed in favour of Elia Martell, being appointed Hand of the King by Aerys only to resign after his son and heir, Jamie, was appointed to the Kingsguard.

The Lannisters are very much a wildcard in the coming war; a house that does what is best for themselves, with no regard for honour or other such trivial things unless they unduly besmirch the family name.

Haha, I'd TG you a strategy of my own, but merely having one would be greatly out of character.

Robert isn't too fond of Rhaegar but then I doubt murdering children sits that well with him either at this point. Expect him to be much more reactive than proactive.

Ser

Allegiance paid to: None
Appearance:

Personality: Mad, Paranoid, Unpredictable
Skills: Unpredictable (Formally a respectable warrior)
Weaponry: Standard Longsword and shield
Biography:
Born in the Year 244 AC, Aerys Targaryen was not destined to be king, but his fathers elder brother, prince Duncan, died at Summerhall. Aerys showed great promise during the War of the Ninepenny Kings, though the honor eventually went Ser Barristan Selmy of the Kingsguard for slaying Malys the Monstrous.

Aerys showed promise at the start of his reign, bringing peace and prosperity to the Seven Kingdoms, but later descended into insanity, caused by, amongst other factors, multiple miscarriages and stillbirths, the deaths of three sons, and a brief uprising known as the Defiance of Duskendale, in which he was held prisoner for half a year by a rebellious lord. His paranoia and cruelty grew out of control. Leading to the murder of princess Elia and her children.

Allegiance Paid to: None
Approx Number of military at command: The entire realm owes allegiance to the rightful King Aerys, though it is unknown how many will honor his call.
History of the House :
House Targaryen is a noble family of Valyrian descent who once ruled the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. The Targaryen sigil is a three-headed dragon breathing flames, red on black. The house words are "Fire and Blood".
The only family of dragonlords who survived the Doom of Valyria, the Targaryens left the Valyrian Freehold twelve years before the Doom. They resided for more than a century at Dragonstone on the island of the same name, until Aegon the Conqueror and his sister-wives, Visenya and Rhaenys, began the first of the Wars of Conquest in -2 AC.

The Targaryen kings have ruled Westeros for nigh on 280 years. With the Noble King Aerys II Targaryen as the present monarch. But with the treason of his first born son, Rheagar, the safe keeping of the Targaryen name has been thrown into the wind, and now all Westeros waits eagerly to see if the Traitorous prince shall be put down.

On second thought I would rather take over Aerys myself, just until we find a player who is not already tied to a Lord. Unless you would prefer to put the Starks aside.

Aerys Targaryen the Second of his Name,
King of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and Protector of the Realm


Born in 244AC, within the walls of the Red Keep
Rules from the Iron Throne in the Red Keep, at the heart of Kingslanding

Aerys was born to Jaehaerys and Shaera Targaryen, themselves the children of Aegon the Fifth of his Name. From a young age he never proved himself to be a great man, possessing neither the mind nor the skill to excel as a prince of the royal family. And yet he was gifted with charm, enough to make him a great number of friends on whom his later successes would depend. One such friend was the young Tywin Lannister, the heir to House Lannister of Casterly Rock. The Lion of the West, after the War of the Ninepenny Kings saw the last of the Blackfyre Pretenders slain on the field of battle, was chosen to knight his friend who had earned his spurs at only sixteen. Two years later, this friendship would prove to be a blessing for the once failing Lannisters. Aerys, now dubbed King Aerys II with the death of his father, named Tywin his hand. Together, the two would bring the realm a dozen years of peace and prosperity.

As a teenager, under the watchful gaze of his weak father, the future king was wedded to his younger sister. Even at such an age the two were far from lovers, the marriage made purely out of a child's duty to an ailing father. As the years dragged on, this marriage continued to forebear a great tragedy. After Rhaegar, no more children blessed their house, driving Aerys into paranoia as he laid the blame on his enemies at court.

However it was not just dead children which tore at the sanity of the King. His friend and Hand, Lord Tywin Lannister, proved himself to be an exceedingly competent administrator, governing the realm without fault year after year. And year after year Aerys found himself having his own accomplishments overshadowed by that of the Lion. Slowly, the king began to act on his envy, acting against the wishes of his friend as he tried to grasp at prestige and glory that was being denied him. It was not long until the court learned that their own advancement lay in doing the same, giving Aerys the attention and praise that he had long wished for.

And yet there was a chance of recovery for the king's mind, and that chance was when Jaehaerys was born. A second son to strengthen the name and history of Aerys. And by a uncaring god the babe died. Aerys blamed his wife, her midwife, his mistress, his lover's entire family. Yet it was not enough, not for the King. In a fit of despair he took a walk of repentance, pledging himself to only lay with his wife. And while a son would come, healthy and strong, the damage of Jaehaerys' death could not be repaired.

Aerys, his envy of Tywin driving him to greater feats of humiliation against his former friend, once again refused his Hand's advise when Lord Darklyn refused to pay his taxes. Choosing to deal with the rebel himself, Aerys was captured by Darklyn and held prisoner for six months. Upon his rescue by Ser Barristan Selmy, Aerys had truly broken.

Once he was a handsome and charismatic man, generous and resolute. Now his paranoia led him to see treachery in every act, his envy to consider Tywin and his own son Rhaegar a threat. He refused to leave the Red Keep for four years, letting his hair and nails grow unkempt for fear of a blade. Only the Tourney of Harrenhal, in the Year of the False Spring, roused him from his seat. There, the realm at large was allowed to see the state of their king. Naming Jaime Lannister to his kingsguard at the behest of the youth's twin sister, Aerys deprived his Hand of his heir and saw to it that Tywin gave up his position. Considering himself finally victor over his rival, Aerys returned to the capital, believing the realm to once again be behind him as it was when he was still young.

Alas, with the threat of Lord Tywin neutered, Aerys found himself remembering the danger of his estranged son. Rhaegar, though known across the realm as the heir presumptive, was also a traitor. He was conspiring with disloyal vassals, with men and women lusting after his birthright. So, in a single stroke he stopped the daggers from striking. The king who had once promising to make Dorne blossom instructed his loyal retainers to execute his daughter in law and her Dornish offspring. With the city safe from his foes, the king made the final step - urged on by his most loyal council - and declared his eldest son a traitor.
