Salvatorem was once a beautiful, fairly peaceful land. It was full of life and magic, and people who, despite differences and disagreements, would never go to war against each other. The royal family, consisting of the king, his wife, three sons, and one daughter were very kind and generous. Everything seemed right. Even the poor could not complain.
But with the Princess' birth, problems began to arise. She was not the rightful daughter of the queen. She was the daughter of a sorceress who had deceived the king into thinking she was his wife using magic. The king set out to kill the sorceress and the child both, but in a final wish before death, the sorceress pleaded with the king to spare her child.
She prophecized the girl would come to provide the world with help and protection in its time of need. Evil was rising in remote places, and spreading fast. The child, with the blood of a sorceress and of the king, would be given something very special. She would be able to protect the world.
The king showed mercy and kept the child, his wife accepting her as her own. Things remained peaceful, for the most part. But the king was now aware of the growing darkness, and he was having it closely monitored.
At the age of seven, the young princess was having trouble keeping up with her three older brothers. She proved to get herself into a lot of trouble, falling out of a tree or getting her foot caught in weeds underwater. It was, however, when someone attempted to kill her that her parents realized she needed extra protection. Although the assassin failed, being captured and killed, the princess needed a bodyguard, for she might not have been so fortunate in the future.
After years of faithfully and loyally protecting the princess, her bodyguard retired. Now sixteen, she is old enough, her parents decide, for her to choose from the choices they provide her. She chooses a guard closest to her own age. A seventeen -nearly eighteen- years old young man, who shows great loyalty to the royals family.
This is their story.
I will be playing the girl. Mature romance as in mature elements but actual scenes of that nature can be smoothed over if needed. Although I personally have no limitations. I'd prefer someone who avoids one-liners, and will be getting onto me for making one-liners too frequently.
Appearance: (Detailed, please. I'm not asking for paragraphs upon paragraphs but please do not skip out just to take the easy way. And NO PICTURES.)
*You may add to the skellie as you like but this is a minimum of what I'd like to see.
This sounds good, mind if I do it with you? I as well have no limitations on anything...
Cool! I'd be glad to give it a try with you. Post a skellie, I'll have mine up soon. And then as long as you have no questions I believe we can begin.
Appearance: Trinity has long, flowing and wavy blonde hair. Her eyes are a lively forest green, and her features show a delicate flower of beauty but hidden danger. She has rather pale skin, and often strange marks will appear in random places and fade away with time. She has a tall, slender and lithe form. She's attractive, but she doesn't see it in herself, nor does she seem to care.
Name: Luke Bridgewater
Appearance: Luke has shaggy sand-blonde hair which makes him look a little older than he really is. His eyes are dark blue which also helps his case in making him look older. From helping the royal family with their horses, he has a dark tan and the muscles to prove it. He stands tall and knows it, but not wanting to scare people away, he makes sure he at least shaves his face to keep it smooth and clean.
Extra Note: He has seen the princess before but hasn't quite had the chance to have a full conversation with her.
(I hope this is okay. I can change anything if you want me to).
(No, it looks like a perfect start.)
Trinity hummed a soft melody to herself, walking through the gardens. She was waiting patiently for Luke to arive. Her father was supposed to make sure he knew all the proocalls. Secret passages...signals...trustworthy guards and average guards...socialization...sleeping arrangements. Of course there was a threat lingering that if the man messed with his daughter in a way beyond friendship and protecting her, he'd pay dearly. But it was never actually said.
Luke walk into the castles gardens where he was supposed to meet the princess. Her father, the king, had him learn everything he ever needed to know about the castle and its men. He could sense the king was on edge but never asked why. Once the king told him everything he needed to know, he left to go meet with princess Trinity. As he walked through the gardens he heard a soft humming coming from behind some hedges and without thinking, he stepped through the hedges, branches scratched at his face, but before he knew it he was on the other side, and right in front of the princess. "Milady.." Luke said as he bowed in front of her. "I didn't mean to frighten you if I did."
Trinity was standing very still, having taken a step back. "L-Luke, right?" Her green eyes were wide and alert. She looked ready to dart. "Please...don't do that again." She recently found she was in a state in which she could very easily do magical things without meaning to.
Luke stood up and nodded, "Yes milady. I will never do it again, I promise." Luke looked into Trinity's eyes and his breath caught in his throat. He couldn't believe how beautiful Trinity was but knew that he stood no chance. He was sure that she had her eyes on someone already anyway. "You wanted me to meet you here. Is there something troubling you milady?" Luke asked as he joined her side and began to walk with her again.
"Just...uh, it seems I feel safer when I know the person protecting me." Trinity said, taking deep breaths to calm herself. "We need to spend a bit of time together, that's all. I'd like to get to know you, and you need to learn my routine."
"Well, Milady, you may ask whatever you want about me, I don't mind. I have nothing to hide." Luke walked with Trinity and waited for her to begin with questions. He would occasionally look up at her to let her know he was paying close attention and made sure that he kept a high alert out in case if anything were to happen.
"First of all, my name is Trinity, not Milady." She said pointedly. "So what's the situation with family? Do you...have any?"
"I'm sorry if I upsetted you Mila..I mean, Trinity." He smiled when he said her name. "My family? Yes, I do have family. My father died from sickness when I was five years old. My mother, she had to raise my two brothers, three sisters, and of course myself. She is still alive and lives in the town of Briar. My two brothers and one of my sisters live with her, and help farm the land. My other two sisters are married and living with there husbands."
"Oh..." Trinity was silent for a bit. She looked over at him. "So why are you here? I mean, why not with your family or something?"
Luke shrugged his shoulders and then looked at her, "I left because I felt like I could do greater things in life, and they understood. I visit them of course every now and then, which they're just glad to see me. They are happy that I'm happy and doing something with my life." He looked down at the ground and smiled, "You know, when they found out that I was being selected as your guard, my mother broke down and wept. Thanking god for the blessing that he had given our family." Luke looked back at Trinity, "so I must thank you for giving my family hope again."
Trinity winced. "But...you realize you aren't allowed to visit them anymore...? I mean...wherever I am is where you have to be. To go against that defeats the purpose of having you. The only other option would be to take me with you, and I highly doubt my father would allow that. Plus I really don't do well socially with any group, nobles, royalty, farmers..." She looked down. "I'd feel bad to take that freedom from you."
Luke walked in front of Trinity, stopped, and looked at her. "Mil...Trinity, please do not worry or feel bad. My family knew what the consequences would be if this worked out. Again, they understand and are just happy that I'm happy. Always remember this too, I will always be around you, no matter what. Even when you can't see me, do remember that I will always be able to see you, unless you are for certain, that you do not need my protection." Luke looked into Trinity's eyes and smiled, "Please remember that at least." He joined her side again and they began to walk once more.
"Not always." Trinity mumbled, blushing faintly. "If you peeped on me while changing or bathing my father would have your head in a heartbeat." She sighed. "I still don't like the thought that I'm keeping you from your family. I love my family and when my brothers are away for long periods it hurts."
