- Money buys everything. Food, finery, shiny things and odd knick knacks in between; and when that gets boring, why not even hearts and souls themselves? A Cavalier pledges these in return for everything that the same benefits that the nobles themselves possess.. Of course, pledging over one's heart and soul would mean that you would be a pawn for the upper echelon to use as they see fit.
[mc] is a noble who had the rare distinction of being able to form a relationship between her and her Cavalier that almost managed to resemble something like love. Of course, this all falls apart when a rival noble manipulates events that ends in the death of [mc]'s Cavalier. Cue several years into the future and despite the calm facade she has, most know that something does not quite tick right anymore and decide that it is better not to get in her way. She has been Cavalier-less all this while till [yc] steps into the picture; one that has been passed and broken far too many times; unpredictable and dangerous and that they have decided to eventually put down till she steps in and decides to take him in.
the meeting of crazy and crazier
Here, Cavaliers are like more extreme versions of bodyguards. Not only do they protect the nobles, but they duel with other cavaliers to resolve disputes, problems and basically, whenever their nobles feel like they need a bit of entertainment. Both characters in this rp would be broken but I'd like to see how, against all odds, a friendship and something more manages to strike up along the way.
The idea struck up when I had this image of a woman asking a highly dangerous killer to do everyday tasks like making tea and crumpets and oh, woud you water the plants as well?
in this huge opulent house full of useless things and the both of them just faffing about and driving each other crazy; what with her strangely banal requests and his fickleness.Alternate Versions
