Atalaya Province Wanteds!
« on: December 31, 2018, 07:00:02 PM »

Atalaya Province Court

Melchiar has been ruling Shalador's northern most province for 350 years after his appointment by Witch to his late mother's court. To the people he's been a mostly fair ruler, stifling open dissent in the wake of Witch's downfall and continuing to work for the province's betterment. In private, Melchiar has been plotting a coup. His eyes have been on the territory throne for as long as he's been in permanent residence in Shalador and he's been working toward that goal in the longest game of chess. Murdering young queens, merchants and yes, even landen are all fair play.

Toward that end, Melchiar needs his court! His trusted and not so trusted inner circle, all of whom are some part eyrien or fully eyrien. Outside of these wanteds, Mel has numerous children both with his wife and from his years as one of Witch's pets so they too are open and welcome to throw a wrench in his plans.



Consort
Wife, #1 Weakness sent by Witch


Dalian


General Information:
Half Eyrien, half short lived, Dalian has been Melchiar's consort for roughly 300 years. Originally she was a 'gift' from Witch and as such she was one of the eyrien queens trained by Witch's lackeys. Melchiar is heartbound to her and he spent at least a decade gnawing at the leash before he finally settled down and stopped scaring her/giving her grief. Dalian taught Melchiar enough healing craft to be competent and they're close enough now that she's absolutely likely to be used as a pillow while he works because Mel is a Hover and Cling Husband. In their 300 year marriage, the two have four children and Dalian has seen the full extent of her husband's planning and devotion to serving Witch and Witch's ideals even after her death.

Dalian can swing either in favor of Melchiar's plans for a coup or attempting to convince him that that's not a good idea.

Requested Caste: Healer Queen

Relationship: Wifeee

Preferred Jewels: Fam roll of Yellow to Rose

Face Claim: Julia Evans

Miscellaneous:
Dalian came from Askavi with the Seer in tow. The two are as close as siblings.

Master of the Guard
Sparing partner, blood brother


First Last


General Information:
The only full blooded Eyrien in Melchiar's court, the two men made a blood pact when they made their offerings. Both trained under Witch's henchmen and both came out of it in some...fashion. Melchiar submitted his old friend's name for the motg position and Witch was gracious enough to send him along to Shalador, likely to get one more Eyrien out of Askavi. Shit talking is a common activity between them and the motg is in full support of Melchiar's plan to take over Shalador.

To say he doesn't trust the Steward is an understatement but the man at least gets results.

Requested Caste: Prince or WP

Relationship: Friend/Blood Brother

Preferred Jewels: Dark to keep up with Melchiar

Face Claim: Any

Miscellaneous:
Are there any other points that you wish to add that don't fit anywhere else? You can use this spot for that.

Steward
In it for himself and himself


First Last


General Information:
Another half eyrien appointed by Witch, the Steward is in charge of overseeing the finer points of Melchiar's coup. Both with and without his prince's blessing he's been manipulating court politics in other provinces for centuries as such he's got a network of spies and assassins that are singularly loyal to him. A healthy fear of Melchiar's temper keeps him in check and away from trying to oust him.

For now.

Requested Caste: Any

Relationship: Friend

Preferred Jewels: Any

Face Claim: Any

Miscellaneous:
N/A

Court Priest/ess
Wildcard.


First Last


General Information:
Eyrien. They serve because they must, because Mother Night's avatar told them to serve. The priest/ess's loyalties forever lie with Witch, Melchiar a tolerable substitute but not at all someone they'd follow to the ends of the earth. Their association with Melchiar's court is something of detached curiosity, watching to see which way fate swings. Or in the case of fate not swinging fast enough which way the Steward goes.

The Priest/ess can swing either in favor of Melchiar's plans or against, they could even support the Steward's eventual desire for power too.

Requested Caste: Priest or Priestess, single or dual caste

Relationship: Friend/Court Priestess

Preferred Jewels: Any

Face Claim: Any

Miscellaneous:
N/A

Court Seer
Loyal to the Queen


First Last


General Information:
The Seer is either heartbound to Dalian or just a very very close friend of the queen. Either way, she came with Dalian from Askavi and her loyalties lie squarely with Dalian despite Melchiar being the province leader. The Seer has been spinning webs near daily to see what the possible outcomes of this coup could possibly be and whether they'll be a life threatening problem for her friend.

Requested Caste: Black Widow, single or dual caaste

Relationship: Friend/Court Seer

Preferred Jewels: Any

Face Claim: Any

Miscellaneous:
N/A

Court Healer
Medical Newbie


First Last


General Information:
The newest member of Melchiar's court, The Healer is here by Dalian's recommendation having joined several decades after she did and clung to her side ever since. The unnecessary clingy-ness has drawn Melchiar's ire more than once but so far he hasn't done more than growl. The Healer has been whispering in Dalian's ear as of late that Melchiar's coup might just be a very bad idea for all of them if he succeeds. Loyalty to Dalian is the only reason the healer's remained at court so long and loyalty to her might be the only thing saving them from Melchiar's rage in the future.

Requested Caste: Healer, single or dual caste

Relationship: Friend/Court Healer

Preferred Jewels: Any

Face Claim: Any

Miscellaneous:
N/A
