I still need to get on doing that. My characters have changed so much since their original conception that they are mostly not accurate anymore.

No, it does not.

Some of the players do have Discord Accounts however and can be reached through those.

Well now that you mention it, a lingering question I have is if Achisia started the war and lost why does it remain as a state? Or is it under occupation by the alliance. Secondly, is Kartara inhabited by humans or orcs? Part of me assumes Humans but I dont want to assume. Also if the Blight is consumed by a plague that kills from within, how does one venture in and how can there be monsters and creatures roaming it? And lastly, is the Karakian Steppe geographically like Mordor of sorts or is it mostly vast open fields?

Sorry if its a lot, im just very vested into the world is all.

Three of those I can't answer since I don't know much about Kartara or the nature of the Blight (besides the Age of Abhorrence being a bad time for literally everyone). As for Achysia (new spelling introduced) it isn't a state anymore and was/is occupied (currently an uprising is in process).

No problems.

Okay occupation makes sense. ooooooh, an uprising I hear, now that's interesting.

Now to post the app of someone who me and Thrace discussed like a year ago but his area is now relevant enough for him to no longer just be a background character.
Character Application

Name: The Last Admiral (first name not known to most, those with experience with the Achysian Navy or the Achysian nobility would know his last name is Mavrakis)
Age: Around 50
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Race:Human
Appearance:The Last Admiral's face is unknown to practically everyone besides people who know him extremely well and most of those, besides General de Velira, is dead. But what can be seen about him is that he has blonde hair that reaches the shoulders, pale skin, is about 5'11, and has an athletic figure to be expected of someone of his profession. When it comes to clothes he still wears the clothing that symbolizes his rank in the navy and his status in society which includes his ceremonial mask which he is never seen without.


Position/Status/Affiliation: Admiral of the Achysian Navy, head of House Mavrakis, allied with General de Velira
Skills/Powers//Magic: The Last Admiral is well known for being a very talented illusionist and he does have some ability with wind magic. When it comes to his martial abilities he is skilled with a rapier and naval combat but where he excels is with boarding actions and logistics.

His fleet:
11 Dromons (200 men crew each, 2 Mages each)
3 Heavy Dromons (300 men crew each, 4 Mages each except the Flagship which has 5) (the flagship, the Flame Untarnished, the Pure Light and the Enduring Gift
4 scout galleys (60 men crew each, 1 Mage each)
Total Manpower: 3340, composed of various races but primarily human
36 Achysian Mages
1 Maiden of the Eternal Flame


Equipment: A rapier, his traditional mask, maps of the seas, the equipment expected to actually do his job


Personality: Even before the war the Last Admiral was a quiet man and even during conversations he could come across as terse but all of that covers up a man who is truly a fanatic, something no one could really see in him until he revealed it. He is absolute in his dedication to Achysia and its laws and is possessed with the determination to fight to the very end, for the war will never end so long as he is alive. However, despite being a fanatic, he is a pragmatic one and is willing to overlook certain things if just barely so long as it prevents him from not making any more enemies.
Moral Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Biography: House Mavrakis was a House of moderate prestige, pedigree, and rank in the Achysian court whose claim to fame rests upon two pillars, a fine tradition of providing officers to the Achysian Navy and the fact they are descended from freed slaves that ascended into the nobility with generations of hard work and service.

As for Admiral Mavrakis he was and is very much a solitary man, in fact when it came to the Achysian court he could easily be described as "completely divorced" and he was rarely ever seen there besides for ceremonial purposes but it was also known in court that he was an ally of General de Velira due to a historical friendship between House Mavrakis and House de Velira. When it came to his personal family he had a wife who gave him two sons and a daughter. Of the sons, one went missing during the war, the other died during one of the largest naval battles of the war after he went down with his ship. Similarly his wife, a ship captain in her own right, died in that battle. The only one who didn’t die during the war or went missing was his daughter but she died at sea of an illness while serving as the captain of the Last Admiral’s flagship.

Come the war he served with distinction and displayed his talents for boarding actions, doing such things when other people thought it to be impossible. When the war ended the remaining senior officers in the largest gathering of the fleet in port were ordered to stand down and most were inclined to go along with the surrender but the normally silent Admiral Mavrakis stood and stated a single line that declared what he would do and stunned all in the room.

To admit defeat is to blaspheme against the Emperor.

As if that was a signal, soldiers, sailors, and mages that either agreed with him or were just simply loyal to him seized as much of the Achysian Navy as they could and, under his leadership, they staged a breakout and made for open sea. Upon his departure he had a simple proclamation "the war will never end, not while I live" and thus he leads the remnants of the Achysian Navy from his flagship the Flame Untarnished, the crews, due to attrition, being a mix of native Achysians and former slaves freed during his raids. Since the end of the war Admiral Mavrakis acquired a title given to him by both the crews of his ships and the native born Achysians on the mainland: The Last Admiral, for he was truly the last admiral of the Achysian Navy because, for all intents and purposes, his fleet is the Achysian Navy in their eyes, or, at the very least, its continuation. Overall while he does command a strong force, his enemies tend to think of him as an over glorified pirate, which, to be fair, he does indulge in a lot of piracy targeted at Calaria and Anselm but woe to anyone who underestimates him. For the Last Admiral this is war, and it is a war he intends to win. Notably whenever he frees slaves he offers them a choice, transport to Achysia when he can and they can hide among the Achysians he has contacts with, magical or otherwise, or they can join his crew and continue the war, he is absolutely clear to each and everyone of them though: if he can help it, they will never be enslaved again.

Goals: To win the War of the Seven Nations.
Theme Song: Warlords of the Sea


RP Sample:
Did you read the Rules?: Yup.
Miscellaneous: As Thrace knows, all my characters besides Felicity and Rosaria have at least one secret.

Welcome! Yeah, the lore is in the process of being rewritten, so if you have/will have any questions, feel free to ask xD

Like Elysian said, Achysia is no longer a state and is in theory a theory under the occupation of the Holy Council, which was the alliance of realms that eventually defeated it, but in practice most of the occupying forces belong to the Faith. ICly also a rebellion has started during the Night of the Bloody Moons, and several parts of the country are in open revolt.

Kartara is inhabited by humans, but culturally the Kartarans have always been seen as outsiders and barbarians by the inhabitants of the Silver Realms.

As for the Blight, I'm admittedly not fully sure how well I was describing it in the old lore, some things have slowly changed. The Blight is a plague in that seems to affect all living things, but it's more akin to a kind of magical corruption. One does not venture in because the Blight would kill that person, no one has been inside the Blight ever since the Calamity. There have been some attempts to fly over it with Wyverns but few have returned and none after landing, since flying too low would expose them to it, and even while high the effect seems to severely weaken the Wyverns and their riders.

As for monsters and creatures, well, that is one of the great mysteries of the Blight. They generally seem to be corrupted by a weaker form of the Blight that doesn't infect the ground and the nature around like the Blight itself does so while they can attack and people they wound will succumb to it, they do not spread it in the same kind of way that blighted all the former Thyrian heartlands during the Calamity. No one knows how exactly they are created. Their numbers have also declined a lot, from the point in past where Xerena had to be created as a defensive mark of sorts now there have only been three or so raids in the last 30 years and none in the last 10.

As for the Karakian Steppes, they do have a few mountain chains and a few forests, but generally there are plains and steppes, so it's a lot easier to live there than in Mordor, but it is affected by irregular dry seasons that constantly push its inhabitants to try to migrate towards the south.

FINALLY done redoing the apps you have no idea how hard this was

Character Application


Name: Alina
Age: 16
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Race: 'Human'... perhaps
Appearance:
The clothes are different, but if you think I'm going to go and find a perfect character image in medieval clothing, you are wrong. I am not doing that.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image



Position/Status/Affiliation: As the disowned daughter of a nobleman, Alina no longer has any position or status to speak of. However, her engagement means that she will soon become a baroness, as long as nothing gets in the way...
Skills/Powers//Magic: Due to a fairy's gift(no fairy would ever want to be indebted to a human, after all), Alina is one of the few humans who can wield Ancient Magic. She is in tune with the world around her on a near-subconscious level, especially when it comes to flowers--you can often see wildflowers blooming where she walks. Unfortunately, the special affinity to flowers in particular means that other forms of nature are much harder for her to manipulate(for a fairy's gift to a human may not be much of a gift at all). In order to defeat her, simply hold back until she is exhausted.

However, Ancient Magic can be corrupting... and a deal with a strange little god means that her powers have begun to steadily grow. Although she is losing her humanity, she will soon become near-impossible to defeat at all. After all, how many can truly stand against the full might of nature itself?
Equipment: Nothing save the clothes on her back.


Personality: Alina is a gentle person, peaceful, and rather introverted, preferring to spend time with flowers rather than people. She dislikes people who disrespect nature and others. She's rarely actively aggressive. She gets extremely nervous around large crowds of people, and hates feeling surrounded. She is very easily startled and frightened of people in general, and hates loud sounds and feeling like she's being pitied. However, another side of her has been starting to occasionally emerge... a side which is much more dangerous, and much less willing to hold back.
Moral Alignment: Neutral Good, though that may end up changing rather quickly...
Biography: A dreamy girl whose idealistic nature made it difficult to adjust to her father's rigid standards, Alina has been seeking affection her whole life. Unfortunately for her, a chance encounter with the wrong person led to her becoming a captive of the cult of Luxuria, where she spent a hellish few months trying desperately to hold on to her sanity, and briefly met the Archbishop of Pride, developing a strange trust for him after he refused to hurt her. After being rescued by the cult of Castitas, she found herself on the run, where she met a young squire named Rafal. She quickly began growing to care for him due to his brave and kind nature, something which fell perfectly in line with the idealistic views she'd had when she was younger, and ended up striking a deal with a strange god in order to gain the power to be able to protect him, in exchange for her own humanity. Things did not get better from there, though; not long after that, she discovered that she was pregnant, much to her horror and despair. In order to protect her from the scorn she would receive for being an unwed mother, particularly one who could not even name the child's father, Rafal offered to marry her, and claim the child as his own. After some protesting, where Rafal soothed her worries about the idea, she accepted gladly, and for the first time in quite a while, she actually felt that she might have some hope...
Goals: She wants to be able to keep her own sanity, as well as protect the people she loves.
Theme Song: Birth of a New Witch, Calendula Requiem


RP Sample: Ha ha ha.
Did you read the Rules?: I'm the co-OP, so...
Miscellaneous: I have an enormous draft that's just the two of them getting married and I am so eager to post it. I am so excited. Can't wait.
#KBE7TY2IEV


Character Application


Name: Mireille Vermillon
Age: 9
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: She's 9, so shut the fuck up.
Race: Naphil
Appearance:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image



Position/Status/Affiliation: With no position, no status(save 'despised abomination that must die'), and an affiliation with only herself, Mireille is basically a crazy little vagabond. That's pretty much it. That's her position.
Skills/Powers//Magic: No magic for this little Naphil--she doesn't need any. Since she's the child of an angel, after all, her powers are quite potent on their own. With the abilities of flight, naturally, healing, telekinesis, telepathy, and pyrokinesis(including holy fire), even this child is a force to be reckoned with. Unfortunately for her, her heritage also comes with a curse. Specifically, cursed items and black magic curses are extremely dangerous for her. To increase your chances of defeating her, rely on black magic above all else. Other than that, all you can do is hope to stay alive.
Equipment: The clothes on her back, and a teddy bear she has affectionately named Jermee.


Personality: Mireille is one of the Nephilim corrupted by her power, and as a result, she's rather unhinged. She'll do what she wants, when she wants, and she doesn't really care about anyone else as long as they aren't disrupting her fun. If someone does get in her way, though, there's no guarantee they'll come out of the experience unharmed... or at all. For those who meet her, you should hope that you're entertaining and nice enough to be classified as a friend instead of a toy... She has a bad habit of breaking those.
Moral Alignment: Chaotic Chaotic.
Biography: She's 9 years old. Basically all she's done in life is run around and have a good time. And kill an extremely large number of people.
Goals: To have fun!
Theme Song: Search and Destroy, Heart Color


RP Sample: LOL no
Did you read the Rules?: And if I didn't?
Miscellaneous: I have no regrets.
#KBE7TY2IEV


Character Application


Name: Lucia Serafina Trista
Age: 20
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: Asexual
Race: Human
Appearance:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image



Position/Status/Affiliation: Archbishop of Castitas
Skills/Powers//Magic: Lucia is incredibly skilled in white magic, both of the defensive and much rarer offensive variety. Although her offensive spells are quite powerful, her specialty, of course, is defensive magic, with focuses on healing(both in body, mind, and mana) and guarding others. Generally considered to be one of, if not the most powerful exorcist in the world, she is capable of completely canceling out most forms of mind-control(save those caused by the very powerful, such as other Archbishops) and expelling most any entity which may inhabit a person's body. Casting long spells is unnecessary for her, due to her scroll(more on that in Equipment), only making it more difficult to fight her. She fights almost exclusively with magic, although she carries a sword with her as well in the rare case that she needs it. Naturally, she's also been given the Authority of Castitas, allowing her to truly cleanse a person of lust, save those sad few who are too far gone to be rescued by any means. To defeat her, the best course of action is to focus on any allies she may have with her, since she values their lives over her own.
Equipment:
  • Spirit Scroll -- The scroll she carries contains the spells and chants she needs for her magic. This isn't to say that they're written on the scroll, but rather that the scroll itself is made of them. Because of that, it's lighter than a paper scroll and the amount it can hold is near-infinite. It's a very powerful item, one that took years to make, and allows her to say a single phrase indicating the spell she wishes to use--at which point it completes the spell on its own. It was created to have a will of its own, so that a thief who took the scroll without permission would be unable to use it--but were she to give the scroll to someone else, they would be able to use it so long as they knew the spells from which it was crafted.
  • Purity Robe -- The dress she wears is the same type of material as that used in the robes of all other members of the cult of Castitas. It is essentially a form of strong, yet incredibly lightweight armor and cannot be destroyed easily, thus helping to protect the wearer from any who might wish to do them harm. However, if worn by anyone but a member of Castitas or someone officially under its protection, it will be nothing more than a simple article of clothing.
  • Bonded Ring -- She carries a small silver ring with a translucent, icy blue stone set in it, which allows her to communicate with other members of the Cult of Virtues. Others must be near a mirror or a reflective surface, or hold a similar ring, in order to communicate.
  • Star Sword -- She has a short sword with a blued steel blade. It is designed with a stellar and queen-like motif and has an ornate gold pommel and guard. Spells can be used on it, or it can be used to help direct them.


Personality: Kind yet stern, Lucia is caring when it comes to the innocent and harsh with those she considers guilty. She has very rigid views on sexuality, considering such activity outside of marriage to be sinful, and even looks at such things within marriage with slight disgust, not understanding people's interest in such things. She is, however, able to let others live their lives as they please, as long as they are doing so within the bounds of what she considers to be morality. Those she deems to be sinning, however, overcome by lust, are fair game. Despite her harsh nature in such situations, she genuinely wishes to help other people, and her actions stem from a desire to cleanse their souls and allow them paradise in the afterlife.
Moral Alignment: About on the line between Lawful Good and Lawful Neutral.
Biography: None of your business, frankly.
Goals: To save as many people as she can, cleanse the world of as much evil as she can, and to fight Luxuria until she can fight no longer.
Theme Song: Beauties of Nature


RP Sample: Come on. It's me.
Did you read the Rules?: Naturally.
Miscellaneous: Most of her equipment is either shiny or colorful or both. Because I like it that way.

Position/Status/Affiliation: Sailor. Loosely affiliated with Lucia. Generally just does what she wants.
Skills/Powers//Magic: She's an excellent sailor, of course, is very good with her hands, and has a very strange connection with water...
Equipment: A magic ladle that can fill itself with water, and her clothes. That's pretty much it.


Personality: Brash, but not unlikable. She still has a very bright personality, when she's not in some odd, trance-like state. Somewhat uncultured, but a good conversationalist. Adores the ocean and anything to do with it, and has a more minor interest in astronomy. Oddly enough, is also fond of origami and creating art. Somewhat immature, and prone to pulling faces when irritated. Collects sea glass. Is a bit of a hoarder in general, and now that she can survive being far underwater for as long as she pleases, plans to start diving for treasure, and any other cool things she can get her hands on.
Moral Alignment: Probably Chaotic Good, or Chaotic Neutral.
Biography: Marina led a largely uninteresting life before becoming a sailor, and even after that; her life was a typical sailor's life, with nothing particularly special to speak of, until one day at sea during a terrible storm. She was up in the rigging at the time, furling the sails so the storm wouldn't shred them, when a particularly large wave struck the ship; although the ship itself weathered it easily enough, the impact of it dislodged Marina, who was unable to grab onto anything to save herself. She fell into the ocean, and her last, terrified memories were of sinking into the dark water, the tiny glimmer of light from the surface shrinking more and more until it could not be seen at all, as the seawater slowly filled her lungs.

It was then that something entered her; a bitter, angry ghost who had once met the same fate. Altering Marina's physical form to suit its purposes, the ghost lifted her out of the depths and capsized the ship she had fallen from. It then continued on, crossing from place to place, any body of water a suitable home and any vessel upon it or person in it a suitable target, until by pure coincidence it encountered the Archbishop of Castitas. When it attempted to drown her and those with her, she exorcised the spirit from Marina's body, saving the young sailor, who felt indebted to her for her actions. With her body still in the state the ghost left it in, Marina is learning to navigate her new life and new capabilities, while enjoying the adventure of it all in the process.
Goals: All she really wants is to be a sailor for as long as she lives, and enjoy life. At the moment, though, she's traveling with the person who saved her, in the hope that she might be able to repay the favor someday.
Theme Song: Deep Blue Jeer, Anchor's Compass. Translation here.


RP Sample: No.
Did you read the Rules?: It's possible that I did.
Miscellaneous: Sweet Aequor, she cannot sail -- slender Aeria has overcome her with longing for an elf. (She can actually still sail though.)

#KBE7TY2IEV


Character Application


Name: She has no true name, but she goes by Meta, among other titles.
Age: Unknown
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: She has only ever expressed true interest in one person. Sample size too small.
Race: Human
Appearance:
Image
Image
Image
Image
If you get close enough to get a good look at her eyes, you'll notice that they are, in fact, made of glass. And, though it's hidden beneath her clothes, on her chest is the mark of the Faith's flower--though directly on top of that is the mark of Acedia. She also has a large amount of other scars of various causes, mostly on her back and arms, though these are also covered by her clothing. Finally, she has a long scar across her abdomen.



Position/Status/Affiliation: Archbishop of Acedia, leader of the Cult of Acedia. Closely affiliated with the Archbishop of Superbia.
Skills/Powers//Magic: Unlike most of those who practice the Magic of the Oath, Meta doesn't have chants for her spells. Rather than speaking combinations of words, Meta sings--specific combinations of notes corresponding to specific spells. The Sleep Princess sings a lullaby, and the world rests... indeed, that is her most powerful spell of all. The Authority of Acedia, preying on a person's exhaustion, whether that be physical or psychological, and amplifying it until that is all they know. She has caused mighty men to collapse in exhaustion, falling unconscious, or even causing their body to give out entirely... and when someone tires of life as a whole, Acedia turns quickly to despair, until they can see only one way out.

Oddly enough, she has never been seen affected by mana deficiency. The reasons for this are unknown.
Equipment: Around her neck, Meta wears a necklace with a small vial on the end. This container is enchanted to never be emptied, and contains a deadly poison.

Interestingly enough, Meta doesn't wear the robes of a typical cultist--whether it's because she prefers normal clothing in terms of comfort, or doesn't want to bother with the robes, or wants to blend in is unsure. Even so, it does make it much more difficult for someone to tell that she's a cultist at all, much less the Archbishop of Acedia herself. Often, no one knows until it's far too late...

She also carries several small blades and a few more vials of various poisons hidden in the folds of her dress, and a relic of her own--Zaria, the Silver Sword, able to be summoned at will.

Finally, she has two glass eyes, enchanted to allow her to 'see' through them.


Personality: Meta is... tired. Perhaps fitting of an Archbishop of Acedia, she has little motivation beyond achieving her rest, and, if she can, perhaps allowing others to rest as well. Often, she seems simply... numb, as if she feels nothing but heavy exhaustion. She doesn't really seem evil, and in fact speaks to others as if she cares for them, treating them gently up until the point of their demise. Yet she seems to consider that a mercy, and doesn't appear to harbor any ill will towards them at all. She doesn't treat the world as if it's really there, and seems to walk through it as if everything were only a dream... but as an Archbishop of Sin, she harbors a darker side, twisted by the sins she serves. The only person she seems to truly love in this world is the Archbishop of Superbia, but as someone who thinks death is a mercy, how will that love be expressed?
Moral Alignment: Who knows?
Biography: It was three years ago that the girl who came to be known as Meta appeared. She knew nothing of herself or her past, only the magic that came to her as easily as if she had been using it her entire life, only the pervading sense of having had something stolen from her, something she wanted more than anything else. With a wide array of scars on her body, the mark of the Faith's flower on her chest, and empty, ruined eye sockets disfiguring a face that could have otherwise been called beautiful, she was a strange figure to be sure--and only grew stranger when her self-appointed guardians discovered what might have been the most remarkable thing about her.

She never slept. Ever.

And she tried, oh, how she tried--spending the night's hours lying in bed, gaping sockets fixed on the ceiling, trying desperately to fall asleep the way everyone else did--but nothing ever worked. And she never grew tired--never fatigued, never sleepy, able to work constantly for hours on end, possibly even longer--but there was no denying how unnatural it was, despite its usefulness. She was taken to the Church, in the hopes that they could discover the source of the anomaly--but the moment one person put their hands on her, she started shrieking as if she was in physical pain, tore herself away, and ran.

She ran and ran, her muscles never straining, her breaths never quickening, until she finally stopped and found herself lost, her ruined eyes unable to gauge where she was or how far she'd gone. Though she couldn't seem to become tired, she no longer wanted to continue--she fell to her knees and cried, not even knowing if the liquid running down her face was truly tears or simply blood running from the wounds where her eyes had once been. She was tired, but not of running. She was confused, and scared, and in pain, and she wanted it all to stop.

The next time anyone saw her, she looked upon their faces with cold glass eyes, and sang a gentle lullaby... and it was that day that Meta, the Sleep Princess, the Archbishop of Acedia, truly entered the world.

Yet it was not until she encountered the Archbishop of Superbia that that world came to have any meaning to her. With his appearance came a strange familiarity, a longing, a deep, immeasurable love that made no sense to her, for how could she love someone so much when they had only just met?

The cause, she decided, did not matter. From there on out, her loyalty was pledged to him alone, and her heart filled with a deep pain, until the Night of the Bloody Moons; for it was on that night that her dreams and wishes finally came to fruition, and she learned the true cause of her love, and found it returned to her. It was the first true happiness that she had felt in all the years since her awakening, and now she is determined to never again let it slip from her grasp...
Goals: With happiness within her reach, Meta no longer chases after sleep. Instead, her one goal is to keep a tight hold on the one thing that could ever fight back the despair infecting her soul--the love she has finally regained, after so long.
Theme Song: Nocte of Desperatio, Flower of Sorrow, Ricordando il passato (gee Meta how come you get THREE theme songs? don't tell me... the author is BIASED?)


RP Sample: Nothing to see here.
Did you read the Rules?: Would it matter if I didn't?
Miscellaneous: Copyright is boring.
#KBE7TY2IEV


Relic App


Names: Zaria, the Silver Sword
Type: Formerly holy, but now cursed... although something seems to have gone slightly wrong during the process.
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: Bisexual
Race: Largely human
Form as an object:

Form as a being:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image



Position/Status/Affiliation: Zaria's mistress is Meta, the Sleep Princess, Archbishop of Acedia, fourth most powerful in the Cult of Sins, and Zaria serves her without question. As a result, she is also loosely affiliated with the Archbishop of Superbia, though she does not fully trust him.
Skills/Powers//Magic: The wings that Zaria possesses in her form as a being allow her flight. She also has incredible eyesight, able to perceive both incredibly fast and incredibly slow movements that an ordinary human could not, and can see clearly about eight times farther than an ordinary human. In her form as a sword, Zaria fights of her own free will, leading her mistress into battle without requiring her to truly even pay attention. Once she is taken in hand, she will control the fight herself--all Meta has to do is abandon her own will and allow Zaria to do the fighting for her, guiding her hands where they need to be. She also possesses the ability to appear and disappear at will, and allows Meta to do the same. Finally, she is a frighteningly sharp blade--the things that cannot be cut by her are close to none.


Personality: In an interesting case for a relic, Zaria's corruption did not fully take, so to speak. As a result of this, she is divided into two fragments; one, the remnant of her holy form, and the other, her new form as a cursed being. Her holy form is very kind and cheerful, and always pleased to help out, but her cursed form is suspicious, angry, and very, very bloodthirsty. They seem to switch almost at random, although her cursed form is always the one who takes charge during a battle. She dislikes those who get in the way of herself and Meta, but she'll tolerate them up to a certain point... and then she won't hold back against them.
Moral Alignment: Her two forms are exact opposites; one is Lawful Good, though leaning towards Neutral Good, and one is pure Chaotic Evil.
History: The history of the Silver Sword... what is it? She was something important once, wasn't she? Something else, something even greater... but... why can't she even remember that? Why is everything up until three years ago a near-absolute blank? And why is her clearest memory of before being stained with the blood of someone deeply important?
Goals: Well, figuring out what the hell happened before three years ago would be very welcome.
Theme Song: Day and Night, Protest Song


RP Sample: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Did you read the Rules?: You can't prove anything~
Miscellaneous: Look at how shiny she is. I didn't even pick the shiniest available images.
