Summary: It's midieval times, and all chaos had broken loose. There is a war between the three Kingdoms. The Larose, Elique, and Harbork kingdoms are locked in a savage war with the Elique and Harbork fighting the Larose kingdom. An elite team of griffin riders has been chosen to infiltrate the kingdom and execute both the queen and king.
Detailed: This war began about 9 years ago. When the Larose kingdom attempted to burn down the Elique kingdom in order to assert their power, the Harbork kingdom stepped in to help the Elique to fend off the Larose military. Even though most the city was saved (as it was decimated in a few places), that marked a distrust among the Larose and the other kingdoms. Now, the Larose aim to destroy everything but themselves in order to come out victorious.
Luckily for the other two kingdoms, their teamwork has managed to fend off the Larose so far. Yet, they were starting to exhaust their resources until they recently came up with a plan. Send an elite team to infiltrate the Larose kingdom and execute the leaders, otherwise known as the king and queen. It was these two that came up with the idea that Larose was surpreme and deserved to rule over all. Though, they don't know that they have rebels fighting against them, and the rebels have a lot of information that can help the other two kingdoms to pull through.
The plan is to have the elite team kill off the king and queen, and then the Harbork and Elique militaries will enter the city and handle anybody who is resisting.
Will this elite team succeed, and bring peace back to the land once more? Or perhaps, the Larose will win after all?
Warriors: These individuals are mainly in charge of protecting the rest of the group, and fighting whenever they must. They have a lot of knowledge on how to survive in the wild, as that was part of their warrior training. They own Fighter griffins due to the power and durability these creatures show.
Spies: This is mostly what it sounds like. As these individuals tend to be sneakier, and rather good at reading others' emotions. They tend to be more tricky in nature, and aren't as attached to morals, which is something their training taught them. They are lightfooted, agile, and rather athletic. Their main role in the group is to sneak into the palace once the time comes, and slip the poison into the royals' food at the right moment. They own Whispering griffins due to the silence these creatures are capable of, as well as the intelligence they show.
Scouts: These individuals have the job of flying over the group as they travel in order to keep a lookout for oncoming dangers. If they spot anything threatening, they must fly to the ground and inform the rest of the group. They own Wind griffins for the stamina these creatures have, which is needed in order to fly for such long periods of time. They often fly together, and only seperate if they see two seperate dangers that require investigation.
Healers: These individuals are mainly around in order to take care of any physical ailments others in the group attain. They tend to be understanding and wise in nature, as their job requires it. They can own any kind of griffin, but tend to favor the Cuddler griffins for the patient, caring, and intelligent nature these creatures have.
Larose Rebels: These three individuals didn't agree with the ideals that their kingdom seemed to be spreading, so they harbored their rebellious nature until they were approached by Elique spies, who had been watching them for quite some time (these spies are not going to be in the RP). The rebels are servants in the Larose castle, and give a letter to the elite team from time to time by Messanger griffin. (Messange griffins are only about 2 feet long, being extremely miniature compared to the rest. They are a raven and domesticated cat hybrid. Nobody in the RP will own one, they are simply messangers.)
Differences between the Kingdoms:
Elique: This kingdom tends to have individuals with slightly darker skin tones. More olive skin tones and almond skin tones are seen here. The eye colors are warmer, but not necessarily darker. They usually have taller heights, an average being 5'10".
As for clothing, leather is common, as raising cattle is a practice that many choose to do. Though, soft fabrics aren't rare either, simply not as common. The color of clothing is usually some shade of brown, or a dark variation of another color. If clothing is dyed, it might be a sign of higher status. Women tend to wear their hair long, but styled well. Men will usually cut their hair short, or wear it long and braided.
Harbork: Individuals found here tend to have paler skin colors. Not blindingly pale, simply more tan or something similar to ivory. Their eye colors are usually in cool colors, and often pale as well, though dark cool colored eyes appear here and there. Those that live here are often more average in height, with 5'5" as the average. Here, women often have long hair, but it is common to see it both styled and not styled. Men tend to cut their hair short, and it is rare to see one who wears it long. As for clothing, brighter colors are seen here than in the Elique kingdom. More purples, blues, and reds.
Larose: Those who live here have many different appearances, but their features tend to be more defined than the other kingdoms. Sometimes, their faces make them appear as if they haven't eaten in weeks, but sometimes this effect is softer, looking only mildly defined. As for skin tones, it can vary. The average heigh tis about 5'11," with most being taller than those found in the Elique kingdom. Clothing tends to be softer fabrics, as their supply of leather was cut off when they went to war with the Elique kingdom. Common clothing colors tend to be a dark shade of any color. If their clothing is dyed to be brighter or paler in coloration, it is a sign of higher status. Women and men both often wear their hair shorter, though women might have hair that goes to their shoulders, while men might buzz their head completely or wear their hair a couple inches long. If a woman does happen to have long hair, she wears it up, as long hair can be considered obnoxious.
Fighter Griffins: These large griffins stand at an impressive 13--15 feet, and weigh roughly 5000--5500 lbs, being rather muscular. Their wings tend to be somewhere around 30 feet long. The domesticated ones have all been trained in skilled combat on top of their natural skill, while the wild ones have incredible natural skill that would give them a fighting chance against one that has even been trained. They are a mix of a large species of bird as well as a large species of cat. Their natural character is rather aggressive, but they can be tamed in order to be only slightly snappy. No matter how handled they are, they will be even more temperamental than other types.
Whispering Griffins: These are rather small griffins, standing at only 7--8 feet and weighing in at about 2500--2800 pounds, being just slightly muscular, but not noticeably. Their wings range from 15--20 feet long. Those that have been domesticated and trained are extremely good at moving through any environment without making too much noise, and can slip through most without making a sound. Those that are wild are extremely good at silence, but aren't as observant of their surroundings and might make a careless mistake like stepping on a twig. They tend to be a mix of a bird and cat both on the smaller side. Their natural character is very mischievous and deceptive. While they can be trained to behave themselves, they are always very curious creatures that are looking for a way to cause trouble.
Wind griffins: These griffins come in a range of sizes, standing at 8--11 feet, and weighing 3000--4500 pounds. Though, they are never quite as small as whispers or quite as large as fighters. They don't have much muscle on their body, but still have a decent amount, as too much would weigh them down and take from their stamina. Their wings tend to be rather large compared to their bodies, at about 30-35 feet long. When trained, they know how to manage their energy and stay in the sky for up to 8 hours, though they don't manage their energy as well in the wild and can stay up for about 6 hours. Their temperament can vary, but they tend to follow their owner's actions. If they have a temperamental owner, they will be snappy, but a mellow owner will make for a very mellow griffin.
Cuddler Griffin: These griffins are usually just slightly on the smaller side, standing at about 8--9 feet tall, and weighing about 3500--4500 lbs. Their wings are usually about 18--20 feet long. They can lack muscle, and also be rather muscular, as their body shapes have large variations. When domesticated, these are extremely loving griffins that will only ever be snappy if they are nagged constantly. They catch on quickly, and therefore have amazing minds, both in the wild and domesticated. In the wild, they are not as kind as when domesticated, but even when threatened, will only become snappy if they feel it is necessary.
RP Example: Read the Sign-ups, and you'll see I can write essays XD
Name: Ern Davidson
Appearance: Dark brown, almost black, hair. He wears his hair buzzed to about 1/2 an inch on the sides, and around 2 inches long on the top, messily styled. He has strangely colored hazel eyes, which are mostly a warm brown. His skin tone is a cool olive tone. He has a somewhat muscular build, and stands at about 6'0". His weight is somewhere around 210pounds, as he is somewhat muscular. He wears a shoe size 9.
He has a faint scar on his cheek from when he was training Belle and he made a mistake, earning a scratch from the terrified griffin. He wears dark brown pants made out of a soft, relatively loose, fabric. There is a tattoo of an intricate design on his back that barely barely peaks above his shirt on the back of his neck. Normally, he's found wearing a simple white/ black/ dark blue shirt with a large black leather belt loosely around his waist. If he gets cold, he might put on a brown, faded leather vest in order to retain some heat. His shoes are often simple brown close-toed shoes. His voice is an average octave, and just slightly rough.
On his belt, you will find several small bags that mostly contain medicinal supplies, along with one filled with small dried pieces of meat to give to the occasional griffin.
Personality: This male is rather quiet, actually. He takes in every detail of his surroundings thoughtfully. He must know everything about everyone and everything before he will trust them. He is extremely slow to trust. He tends to be the quietest in the group, but will speak his mind without hesitation when he feels it is necessary. He often believes himself one of the most mature (if not the most mature), and he quite often correct. Though, he will always respect all others and listens to their opinions gladly.
He is very patient, hardly snapping at others. It would take a lot to draw a shout of anger out of Ern. Although, he will quickly give you his mind if you invade his privacy of personal space, especially when he's in the mood to be alone. He doesn't need much time to be alone, though, as he knows his responsibility to look out for the others. He does tend to keep his personal thoughts and feelings from others, only trusting his secrets to those he feels very close to.
When it comes to other healers, Ern is often much quicker to trust them than he is to trust others. He enjoys spending time with other healers, as he feels he can converse with them more. Although, he will gladly grow close to someone who isn't a healer if he believes it worth his time. When it comes to his romantic life, he definitely doesn't have much of one so far. He doesn't really expect to have one, but he, like most, hopes to meet somebody.
He is always willing to lend a listening ear, and will occassionally evne offer advice, if he feels he had any good tips to give. Mostly, he is very patient and understanding, which makes it easy for most to trust and open up to him. Once somebody has become trusting and open to him, he is usually quick to follow.
- Intelligence + wisdom
- Medical talents
- He has a way with most griffins
- His observance and silence makes it easy for him to learn more about others, and he sometimes even hears things they don't want him to
- Lacks brute physical strength

Name: Isabelle (Belle, Iz)
Species: Snow leopard X Barn Owl
Height: 8 feet
Weight: about 3500 lbs
Appearance: This female has a lovely, soft and furry body. With her body being snow leopard, besides her front legs, she has a very fluffy appearance. Her front legs are the feathery white legs of a barn owl, and her head is also that of a barn owl. Her wings, which come out from her shoulders, are about 19 feet long, with the feathers being a slightly creamy white coloration. Her eyes are large, and have watery blue irises around her black pupils. Her expression almost always looks patient and observant.
Personality: Being sweet and intelligent, this female caught Ern's attention rather quickly when he was at one of the royal farms on the search for a griffin. Naturally, he had gone to the Cuddlers, knowing that he liked their characteristics, but something about her stood out especially. Her large eyes seem to constantly observe her surroundings, and she is curious about everything. This female will almost never get angry, but constant negative behavior will slowly wear away at her tolerance so that you're standing on thinner and thinner ice with her. She doesn't just judge on how you treat her, or even how you treat her owner, but how you treat everybody.
I assume you've seen some of my RP Posts since were in the same RP together but I'll put a Fletcher post here just in case
Fletcher wasn't sure what he had had in mind by following at a distance, might he add, very far distance from the Bearclaw herd that had recently decided to take a stop in the swamp. I guess he could say it was curiosity that had urged him to follow them in the first place rather than stand in a much safer general area with less... Jaws of violence and teeth? Though he knew to some others it could be considered stalking and would end up just calling him a creep. Did Fletcher care at all? No, not really. Well, maybe secretly but he wouldn't show it. Fletcher wanted to find something interesting to do rather than stand alone in some boring peaceful area with the butterfly's and rainbows crossing the sky like everything was fine and dandy. Maybe he could rile up the herd, converse with a mare or two even if he was lucky enough to find an opportunity to do so. Did he want a herd of his own? Heaven's no, he would make the worst possible leader ever and he wasn't sure he was ready just yet to be in charge of lives, heck, he could easily sneeze and end 1 life right there. How? ... Fletcher hadn't thought that far actually
Hearing the sudden loud splash from the waters that the herd had stopped nearby successfully jerked Fletcher out of his thoughts as he lifted his head a bit to hopefully see over the fog. Didn't really help. He could barely see the top of the other horses heads from where he stood far away from them and the sound of splashing water was that of a brief murmur to his ears as a worried frown took his face. Were they in danger? Dying? Perhaps it was a crocodile targeting someone? Fletcher resisted the strong urge to gallop quickly over and check out the scene incase help was needed, he had to restrain himself and keep a reminder in his head that whatever the problem was there were many capable hires inside of the herd that could help resolve the conflict or save the life that was in danger. If he approached it would only turn out horribly wrong for him no matter how he or anyone else looked at it. Soon hearing brief silence the stallion pinned his ears and strained to pick up a single noise
Arguing broke the thin silence soon and Fletcher found himself heaving a sigh of relief. No, he hadn't had much of a proper connection with this herd in particular. Maybe a small chat with a single mare or two once but he was quickly chased off by the close stallions. Still, he hated-, no, despised the thought of death or abandonment with his very being. Seeing as more voices joined shortly, Fletcher found it a time to wander and hopefully find them again later to watch and observe from a distance before trying to talk to a mare or two. Turning, he strained his ears to hear for any dangerous sounds near him whether that be him approach water or another animals footsteps, his bluish-black hooves sinking into the mud before being lifted from the warm squelching prison and being placed upon the ground once again
Swamps were never one of Fletcher's favorite spots, but nevertheless it was 10 times better than what the plains or a boring meadow had to offer, he was craving adventure. Fletcher wasn't sure how long he had been walking, or trotting if you count the few minutes he decided to pick up the speed before slowing down again, but the pale palomino could have sworn he had heard voices, yelling to be more precise. And was that smoke?! Alarm took the stallion's mind. The herd was far from where he had last left it and doubted they would be able to move faster than him with the fog, foals, and mother's. So what was it then? He was not aware of any additional herds taking the area. Stopping in his tracks wig the mud slightly facing in around his hooves, Fletcher perked his ears and strained to listen, closing his icy blue eyes in attempt to pick up any voices
