You notice large animal tracks in the dirt. Wow, these paw prints are huge! And made by a wolf! Your hackles raise. Who could have made tracks this size? And why are they are in your territory?! You spy 1 Arctic Fox.
Carrigan stands at a striking 6'5" with a lean build. His shoulders are broad and muscled from years of sword fighting and riding. The strong torso tapers to a thinner waist that leads to long muscular legs. Scars litter his lightly tanned skin from falls off horses to battles that he has participated in. Dark brown locks barely reach into his crystalline blue eyes as he tries to keep them shorter for fighting. His larger hands are calloused with a few scars on his palms from catching a blade with his bare hands.
Looking at his facial features, many see a battle hardened Knight. He has a sharp jawline with high cheekbones. A light dusting of dark facial hair is usually seen on the jawline no matter what the occasion is. His eyes are slightly rounded with long eyelashes that many have teased him about. His nose has a small deviation in it from an uncoordinated meeting with a tree when he was a young child. Finally, his lips though full are always in a stern position. Not many have been honored to see the male smile or even show off his teeth in a more genuine setting.
Carrigan is usually wearing a pair of riding pants, knee high boots, a loose fitting white or dark colored shirt with a sword on his right hip. Not very many things the male wears, give off a warm impression. Almost everything screams to stay at arm’s length from his cold gaze to the stance that he takes when listening to battle meetings.
Carrigan is known for keeping his emotions in check whenever performing his duties. The only person that sees the man in any facial expression other than sour is his sister Ellie. To her, he is the biggest teddy bear that she knows. He will do everything in his power to get her something she wants or the medicine she needs.
Due to his station, he is loyal to his superiors even if internally he despises how they look down their noses at him. He also takes his job very seriously and when he is doing his rounds, it is hard to distract the man. Carrigan would love to have a family of his own, and does flirt with many of the girls when he is out drinking and such, but he doesn't want to commit to anyone due to his job. He knows that he could die at any moment and will gladly lay down his life to protect those he has been assigned to. But with that he doesn't want to have a serious relationship and cause a deep pain to his wife or children by not being there to provide or keep them safe.
Carrigan spends a lot of his time with his sister since she relies on him to carry her once she is tired. He will always put her first whether it means he doesn't eat or if she needs a new dress. When he is with her, are the rare times that one will see him smiling and in a more relaxed state. He has been known to buy food for beggar children as he walks by, hating the knowledge that it may be their meal for the week.
Women that he finds attractive
He doesn't understand why someone would want to use daggers and get that close.
He rarely shows his emotions
Listening to the stories from travellors
The high taxes
The ruling family
That many of the nobles and royals look down on his common blood.
Poisons-Thinks it is the coward's way of doing things.
Carrigan has a fear of commitment. He knows that he can die at any point and doesn't want to hurt someone that gets close to him with his death.
Please PM me to be a family member.

Cadmus is a olive skinned 17 year old prince of the Staelvor Kingdom, with short but messy and slightly unkept Ash Blonde hair that's longer towards the right side of his face and slightly covers his right eye. His eyes in question are a piercing light icy blue color and he has trouble seeing colors, really any colors at all. To Cadmus the world has always been in greyscale and will probably remain that way for the rest of his life. Though his olive colored skin is mostly smooth with no major or serious scars or burns one deep scar is present on the inside of his right wrist but is often hidden by his sleeve or the side cape he wears indoors. The cause of his scar is unknown, but there have been 2 rumors going around. One saying that a horse inflicted the wound or from a sword fight of some sort. Nevertheless, Cadmus won't tell anyone. Not even his family knows how it got inflicted. Clothes wise, outdoors it is common to see him in a furred cloak that hangs over his shoulders down to his knees that is the color of the snow, a beautiful white. With regular black riding boots and dark brown colored trousers along with a black tunic laced with gold around the edges and sleeves. A white shirt is underneath his tunic and the sleeves are commonly rolled down because of the cold weather. Inside, he sports the same attire except he wears a blue silk cape that covers his right shoulder down to about his waist clipped with a golden pin on the front right shoulderof his tunic. Outside or inside a golden leaf circlet can be seen sitting atop his head though he doesn't show his face outside much despite how much his family does. White gloves are on his hands along with a belt that is around his waist that had used to carry a beautiful silver sword but is now gone from it's place. Cadmus placed it somewhere in his room hidden unless he feels he really needs it. Instead, there is a Estoc taking it's place inside of the sheath that used to carry his sword. Faint eye bags can be seen under his eyes from his lack of sleep, he tends to either do all-nighters reading or just staying up in general until he eventually falls asleep. Despite his insomnia though he tends to hold himself with his head held high and with a regal demeanor when in a gathering of meeting with others of high standard or walking around town with his family if you can convince him to go out or better yet drag him outside
Outwardly, Cadmus is usually incredibly formal and quiet around the village folk, nobles, other royalty, maids, commoners and anyone really, maybe the occasional nod or agreement to a sentence or during a meeting or gathering of some sort but other than that he's very silent and keeps to himself. The prince will usually shy away from any physical touch, partly because of bullying when he was younger but has kept that a secret from his family or has tried to best he can, he has no clue whether they know or not but will dismiss any efforts if getting information. If he doesn't want to share he won't unless you're very determined and keep pestering him. He used to be outgoing and very talkative, walking outside and socializing with many of the town people until eventually he grew quieter and a bit jumpy at approaching footsteps. He's Catious around anyone he doesn't know but is very observant, noticing things others may not be able to catch and being able to read ones emotions a lot. He can tell if someone is lying, but if they conceal it well or are very good at it your guess is as good as his. Like before, he is very hesitant to open up to anyone at all, even his family at times and will usually be found reading a book alone inside of the library or by a tree by himself outside. He doesn't mind the cold, or any weather at all if it means he gets to be somewhere serene and quiet. Though he might answer a question or words addressed to him with a straight forward or monotone answer, some sarcasm or negativity will be hinted in his words either vaguely or entirely. He doesn't act like it or tries not to show any major emotions towards strangers but is very emotionally sensitive. That doesn't mean he won't laugh, smile, and talk with his family though
Though he usually doesn't open up to anyone he does love his family dearly and stays away as to not involve them in his issues. He does have a particular fondness for one of his siblings though (PM me) and will usually open up yo them more than he does anyone else. They're his anchor if you will. While he does love his freedom and not being pestered or babied, he loves long rides on his horse Cavalier and will try to ride unnoticed when he can. If one were to topic something about books, riding, or a form of literature though Cadmus is all for it. His will to be alone doesn't mean he likes small spaces. Sure, maybe a cuddle up in a blanket or two since it's cold and he likes the feeling but in a small area or room by himself, it will make him highly on edge and nervous for majority of the day afterward. He's colorblind, but adores his freedom, not being babied, and any description of colors someone might be able to give him. It brings him joy to be able to imagine it in his head. While he cannot see color, Cadmus is strangely drawn to the color red and will unknowingly pick a book or anything at all in similar values of the color in his greyscale vision. He is quite, but won't mind throwing in a remark to stupid actions or words one of his siblings will say, if he must make a decision he will do it fast and measure out the possibilities and consequences that might occur later before picking a more beneficial option. While he tries to be quiet and alone, that won't stop him from stopping fights or asking what's wrong if someone were to seem off and is always there to give advice about a matter. His sword skills are amazing, but won't resort to his sword (The Estoc) unless he feels very threatened. The silver sword in his room is just a reminder for himself, the blade chipped at the edges and worn anyways and far from use. While he has heard the rumors, he refuses to confirm or deny them in any kind of way but yes, he is very hesitant around horses that are not his own or his family's. While he does try to keep a confident outward appearance and act like everything is fine to his family his unkept look and eye bags are an easy giveaway to his lack of sleep and self care. While he usually refuses to pass out in front of others it's happened once or twice in his life. Best way to force him to sleep? Knock him out.
- Sword fighting - Very experienced, can be classified as advanced - If challenged will be lazy and sloppy - Doesn't fight seriously unless highly provoked or he needs to do so
- Analyzing people - Cadmus can identify people better than the average person, though he's not a god at it and doesn't get everything right - He can tell better than the average person if someone is lying, but again can be wrong
- Intelligence - Cadmus reads a lot so he's knowledgeable about a lot of things but won't blab on and on about it, of you need backup he'll just state a fact of the topic you speak of whether that help you or not
- Socializing - Cadmus doesn't go out much anymore and his social skills are very lacking, if someone provoked him he can snap and keep going which doesn't bode well with his reputation - Talking to a stranger is hard for him and it's even harder for him to reveal to others about himself
- Hiding - Cadmus hides away both in solitude and his feelings, giving blbak or annoyed looks to most of his family of they try to converse and reading in a lot of quiet places like the library or a lone tree outside - To get him to admit his own personal feelings is a tough task and not healthy for him but he doesn't care
- Swimming - It's simple, he really can't swim haha - He will avoid lakes and rivers just because of that reason for fear he will tip over the edge - Also, he tends to procrastinate about silly things but just bear with him and he'll eventually calm down or run away to his room for the rest of the day
- Long Rides - While he is scared of horses not owned by his family or under his care he loves to sneak out unnoticed and talk a long ride on his horse Cavalier
- Reading - Cadmus generally enjoys books, tales of knights or informative readings, anything really - His favorites are any about adventure or knights
- Solitude - Cadmus enjoys his solitude though it isn't healthy for him as being alone gives him time to think his thoughts through and come to terms with himself - He likes peace and quiet in general anyways and figures it better than walking outside in the coldness of the north and townsfolk who will probably try and converse
- Descriptions of items or places - He adores anyone who can tell him about the different colors in any kind of places and what they look like during night or day, the more descriptive the more captivated that he will become as he's never seen the world in color before, he was born colorblind so that the world is in Greyscale to him
- Physical contact - Though he does like snuggling in blankets in his room or anywhere really physical contact whether it be touching his shoulder or hugging him will make him give a flinch, small or not - The bullies are to blame though Cadmus has shrugged it off and tells people he's fine or not to worry
- Bringing up his color blindness - Cadmus absolutely hates it when anyone brings up how he's colorblind, he will either walk away or turn down the discussion right away in any means nessecary - He has never seen the world in color before but nevertheless hates talking about it unless you have a description to give him, then he's all ears
- Being babied - He hates it when others are hovering or ghosting him all the time and would rather much go outside and talk then let that happen, he finds it very bothersome and hard to focus on any kind of work that he may be doing - He hates it when others are concerned and give him pity or their empity words when they see his deep scar on his wrist or learn about his colorblindness, he hates any words of sorry or pity at all no matter who says it or what they meant
- Cadmus has a large irrational fear of large groups, any large cluster of adults or older kids he will always do everything in his power to avoid of he's wandering alone - Gatherings are fine, as he knows no one will hurt him but outside he will always be on edge whenever he sees one
Ill update this as people start making the king, queen, and princes/princesses
He stands short at 5 foot 3 inches and weighs in at around 100, his BMI being at 17.71, 0.79 underweight using the bare minimum for a healthy BMI. Actually being underweight by 4ish pounds, which as bad as some he has known. His skin is a bisque with cool undertones. He has a neat manbun hairstyle, his hair being a dark brown in color. He also has deep-set eyes, and his eyes are a brown in color. His eyebrows are rather thin. His nose is a tibe shape and his ears are triangular in shape, the ear lobe being medium. His lips are downturned thin.
For clothing, he normally wears a light brown tunic with black chausses and dark brown calopedes. Though, sometimes he will add a dark brown doublet to the mix.
He’s usually an extremely patient person, if not a bit proud. Despite this, he holds grudges for a long time, and is rather good at planning revenge by doing pulling pranks using food. Something that usually comes as a surprise is actually the fact that he’s extremely easy to fluster or flatter, taking all compliments to heart practically immediately.
Due to this though, he’s also very easy to insult and he takes those just as seriously. In short, words to him are what mean the most. Though actions are definitely second, if someone says one thing and then immediately does the opposite, he’ll take it extremely seriously and hold a grudge on them for as long as time will allow.
Strengths: Knives due to years of cooking, Cooking, Planning, Patience, Lying, and Agile.
Weaknesses: Flattery, Words, Being Honest, Tall People, and Unexpected Kindness.
Likes: Flattery, Food, Money, Patient People, and Kind People.
Dislikes: Impatient People, Unfairness, Bad Food, Insults, and Snobby People.
Fear: Being a failure.
Family Members: Most are dead, other than his mother, who’s name is Iyumi Kanzou.
They are 6 foot and weighs in at around 150, their BMI being at a healthy 20.34, their skin is a pale bisque with cool undertones. They have a neat textured bowl cut hairstyle, their hair being black in color. They also has deep-set hooded eyes and the eyes are a gray in color. Their eyebrows are practically completely straight in shape, though extremely thin. Their nose is a tibe shape, and their lips are downturned thin. Their ears are triangular in shape, the ear lobe being medium.
The clothing that they normally wear consists of dark greens and browns for cotton tunics and cotton chausses, and leather boots are their go-to shoes. During winter they also wear a fur cloak as to stay warm throughout the colder months.
They aren’t what one would call a nerd with ease, despite looking like one. Sure, they’re observant and practically always reading, always wanting to learn. But they are also confident and laid-back, turning lazy and content in a moment’s notice. In public, they have trouble socializing at first, though after a bit the shyness melts away and they’re laid-back and fun to be around.
At the same time, they’re serious and mature when it comes to academics and training, always wanting to be better than anyone else. They’re extremely helpful, practically offering to help with studying or training at any given moment, believing that learning is the best way to get through life, and wanting to help others to see that too.
With Ichiyuu, it’s a whole other story however. They become critical and snobby almost immediately, practically looking for the tiniest slip up in their twin and then getting onto him for everything that was ever done wrong in a heartbeat, an insult being thrown in every few things or so.
Strengths: Practical/Logical Thinking, Courage, and Empathy.
Weaknesses: Cats (They’re Allergic), Endurance/Tolerance, and Patience.
He is 6 foot, but is usually slouching to where it looks like he is 5 foot 8 inches, a noticeable 4 inch drop, though it seems to only succeed in making him look darker. He weighs in at around 125, his BMI being at 16.95, a whole 1.55 underweight using the bare minimum for a healthy BMI. Actually being underweight by 12ish pounds.
His skin is a pasty pale bisque with cool undertones, only adding to how light it looks. He has a few scars lining his forearms and thighs, though he keeps them hidden quite well. He has a messy disheveled bowl cut hairstyle, his hair being black in color. He also has deep-set hooded eyes, often half-lidded, and his eyes are a gray in color. His eyebrows are practically completely straight in shape, though extremely thin. His nose is a tibe shape and his ears are triangular in shape, the ear lobe being medium. His lips are downturned thin.
The clothing that he normally wears consists of dark grays and blacks for cotton tunics and cotton chausses, and leather boots are his go-to shoes, though sometimes he’ll switch for light gray calopedes if he feels lazy enough. He also wears a black fur cloak.
He’s what one would very easily describe as a loser or downer, as he always radiates that sort of aura. One glance either at him or from him, and the dread, the danger, feels physical according to other people. His brothers and sibling used to often make jokes about how he practiced poker faces while looking in the mirror to the point where he doesn’t know many other ones.
He’s bitter and cold, ignoring anyone with an ease that seems impossible. But, if you get him to actually acknowledge you, and to not have a straight face. Well, just know that an insult is probably coming your way. He’s quick to call someone trash or threaten to kill them, even if the threat is actually completely empty it doesn’t sound like it is at all. Though, if he did actually try to/when fight(ing) someone, he can hold his own quite well and can keep fighting as long as his legs aren't broken, sometimes even after that if the adrenaline is high enough.
He’s unmotivated and lazy in practically every single way, uncaring whether he’s late or not to something, uncaring if he eats all three meals or not, uncaring whether he gets sleep or not, and all of it shows. Though, in all honesty, the biggest part about him, the part that he tries to hide the most is that he’s a coward trying to keep his insecurities, his extreme insecurities especially, from becoming reality, pushing everyone away as fast as possible with just a single look. Pushing everyone away so that they don’t learn just how much of a mess he truly is, family and friends included.
He is 6 foot and weighs in at around 140, their BMI being at a healthy 18.99, his skin is a pale bisque with cool undertones. He has a textured fringe bowl cut hairstyle, styled to try and make it look cuter than should be possible, his hair being black in color. He also has deep-set hooded eyes, his eyes being gray color. His eyebrows are practically completely straight in shape, though extremely thin. His nose is a Tibe shape, and his lips are downturned thin. His ears are triangular in shape, the ear lobe being medium.
For clothing, he normally wears a mixture of browns and grays for cotton tunics and cotton chausses, leather boots being what type of shoes that he always wears. During winter, he adds a fur cloak that is rather indecisive in colors of browns and grays.
He’s what one would call a people-person, picking up on social cues and speak patterns easily. Even body language is no match! He loves to get compliments on how he looks, or acts, and is even more thrilled when invited to a party or outing. He’s usually quite relaxed and calm, seeming like a very easygoing person that is just as easy to get along with. Thoughtful and kind are practically the first thing anyone ever thinks upon meeting him, almost childlike even.
All of this changes the second his eyes meet his siblings though or when he’s around someone he can’t stand in general, doesn’t matter which one. He goes into what Ichiyuu has dubbed ‘Attack Mode’ and will threaten them immediately to make sure they don’t mess up his chances at normal social interaction or mess up his plans in general, all the while throwing insults at either of them. Anytime someone walks by, he switches it to either look like they were the ones being mean or where it looks like they were getting along.
If forced to hang out with his fellow triplets he can, especially with Chigusa. They can be polite and civil towards one another, though with Ichiyuu.. If Touki is forced to hang out with him, it’s nothing but cold stares from both parties, some insults thrown in here and there. Though, usually, they all just avoid each other.
Loreza is a tall, stately woman with dark amber skin. Her face is marked with laugh lines as well as the beginnings of crows feet around her wide-set, dark brown eyes. Her hair is a beautiful ebony black. Thick and curly, its usually kept in a low bun by a thin band of gold. The queen has never been known for being any great jaw-dropping beauty, but the years have been kind enough so far for her winkles to be far and few between.
Her body is unmarked, save for a permanently twisted ankle on her left leg leaving her with chronic pain. Because of this, she uses a polished wooden cain with a handle fashioned to look like three entwined cobras. Her clothing usually consists of cobalt or ochre colored Stola dresses with intricately patterned sashes and golden zoster belt.
Compassionate and soft-spoken, Queen Loreza is known to be a warm and motherly presence in the palace. Spending much of her time socializing with nobles, and basking in the presence of whatever the court musicians are playing. Once you gain her ear, Queen Loreza is happy to offer any help or council, however, she is not the wisest member or the royal family. While she chooses to see the good in others and wants to help all who ask, this comes at the price of being at times gullible and too often giving undeserving peoples benefit of the doubt. Though she has an unyielding sense of innate trust in others, Queen Loreza is perceptive to details. Able to pick up on nervous ticks or a hidden mood as easily as a loose thread in a tapestry. She is also known to be very religious and especially devoted to the goddess Fada'h.

Verdant is my favorite word I think
Standing in at around 5'4, Lynette is a short, lilthe woman with a comely figure and high cheek bones. Her skin is a pale ivory color with a dusting of freckles warming her cheeks and arms that mark her love of the outdoors.
She has laughing grey-green eyes, almost like a cat, always seeking out a new means of entertainment.
Her copper hair is long and thick, softly curling past her shoulders. Her hair is kept out of her face with two small braids at her temples that amass into a single larger braid in the back.
As for clothes, Lynette is often found wearing dark grey or blue colors. Her usual choice of clothing is a wool dress embroidered with roses, an embossed leather corset, and a heavy black fur cloak. Notably, the only jewelry she ever wears is a plain steel pendant of her personal crest: A single rose surrounded by ten snowflakes.
Intelligent and shrewd, Lynette is one of the strongest minds among the court of Staelvor. Charasmatic as she is cunning, Lynette is the antithesis of a wallflower. Often found cheering over Staelkata sparring matches, or tagging along to watch hunts rather than partake, Lynette is known for being more stereotypically feminine at best- prissy at worst. Not that Lynette is afraid to get her hands dirty, but her weaker physique lends itself to needles rather than swords. Despite being lively and musical on the surface for those passing by, extended time spent with her reveals a deep melancholic and cynical nature. Her humor tends to be more dry and self deprecating because of this. Regardless of it all, Lynette leaves the impression of a friendly and helpful young noble-woman
Lullaby's Poison and Fusty-Dudget I may have forgotten to explain this in the Vellamonta culture, but women aren't allowed to fight as they're too weak... if you want your characters to be good at archery and sword fighting, it would have to be secret and behind the back of the other royals. But otherwise, they're accepted!
Fusty-Dudget and Kämpe both your princesses for Vellamonta are 19- just letting you two know so you can discuss ^^
Overthink 101 Your characters look good, though I would prefer a bit more description in their appearances and personalities...
