I just added to the tournament rules, Princesses may also join the tournament if they wish too. Maybe it'll help spark a bit of interest

Weight: 200 odd pounds
Weapon(s): Lance, longsword and horseman's pick
Personality: Proud and charismatic, Erwin is leader of men in battle. Where his banner flies, warriors gather to follow him.

Together they hunted bandits, tracked barbarian raiders, quelled rebellions and the like, rising over the years, to command armies, with Erwin earning the title, Lion of the North and Lothar leading a company of two hundred knights and men at arms, as the Lion's personal bodyguard, the elite thrown in with the general himself, to turn the tide of battle.
Physical Description: Fit and strong, from years welding weapons and carrying armor, Erwin is the model of a general. Strong of jaw and commanding eyes, he has been know to rally troops with a look and a few words. He rarely smiles, mostly when charging into combat at hte head of his bodyguard. Rich brown hair covers his crown and is allowed to grow five inches or so but is shaved clean from his face. Calluses and scars cover his hands but the rest of his body is unmarked.

Character: Ellya Hellatius
Role: Princess
Age: 18
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 120 lbs
Weapon(s): Compassion, Charm, and Elegance
Personality: Ellya is a compassionate and passionate young woman.  She is eager to be heard, though wise enough to hold her tongue and know when she shouldn't speak.  She respects the traditions of the empire though she disagrees with them in her heart.  She believes she, or any of her sisters, could rule just as well as a man, if not better.  She values honesty, honor, loyalty, kindness, justice, and family.  Above all she wants what's best for the people of the empire, and fears that if one of her sisters become Empress she will be cast out or worse.  Ellya feels she would be committed to make amiable arrangements for her sisters, though knows that nothing will ever be the same once this tournament begins.  She enjoys pursuing knowledge, hawking, lawn games, horseback riding, dancing, and helping others.  She prefers art and culture over warfare.

Background: Ellya is the third daughter of the Emperor's second wife.  Like her sisters and half-sisters, she was given everything she ever wanted.  She was provided with the best education available in the empire and excelled in etiquette, diction, and articulation.  As a very young girl her compassion was limitless and unbridled.  She was known to smuggle injured animals into her bedchambers and attempt to nurse them back to health.  Eventually, she grew out of this habit and learned to guard her heart more carefully even as her tutors slowly directed her education toward the healing arts.

She is renown throughout the empire for her ability to heal and for founding charities for the ill and wounded soldiers.  She often visits the wounded soldiers who've been brought back from the front lines.

While Ellya enjoys hawking, she doesn't like to see her owl catch something.  She doesn't hunt though she will ride along.  She's been taught to use a bow, but has little desire to do so and less skill.  She can be found within the imperial library when she has ample free time.

Physical Description: Ellya is statuesque, slender with feminine curves.  She is of average height and build.  Her brown hair is often worn elegantly, though when not in public she prefers to wear it loose and long; it falls to her waist.  Her skin is unblemished and the color of cream.

That's good, assuming MJ2002 is still interested and with Carni's princess that will bring our ratio up to 5 Men - 4 Women. That's actually not too bad.

Character: Jacquelyn Hellatius
Role: Princess
Age: 16
Height: 5'3
Weight: 118lbs
Weapon(s): Remarkable intuition and character judgement.
Personality: Jacquelyn has been called impish, sometimes even the wicked princess, and personally she doesn't know what all the fuss is about.  Unladylike, blunt, and rude, many a noble dislike her, but Jacquelyn is also perfectly capable of acting appropriately when directly ordered to do so by her father or Ellya. One of her finer points is that she has always had a childish, innocent charm that wins over the servants and simpler folk. 
When it comes to her duties as Ellya's apprentice and healer, Jacquelyn is attentive and hardworking.  Much like her older sister, Jacquelyn feels that she must help the less fortunate, even if she is far less compassionate and kind. For all the trouble she causes, Jacquelyn is no fool.  Ever since she was a child, she has always had a very strong sense of intuition.  Sometimes people fear it is too good, as if she peers directly in to one's soul.  It is a truly frightening gift, and she uses it to her advantage.  Unlike her sister Ellya, Jacquelyn has no problem twisting the truth (her truly great lies are few and far between), and even the occasional arm, to get what she wants.

Background: Jacquelyn is the fourth daughter of the Emperor's second wife making her Ellya's younger sister.  Compared to her angelic healer of a sister, Jacquelyn has been likened to an imp.  When she was much younger she would always tear her gowns, and get a hoot out of scaring the royal dogs.

This particular princess has always hated boring ceremonies, and obligatory socialising.  How unfortunate that the princess that dislikes politics the most has become one of her father's most trusted advisors!  Due to her ability to detect snakes, she is constantly forced by her father attend social gatherings and to sit with him in meetings.
When she manages to slip out of her father's grasp, she can be found with the stable boys or cooks, helping them with their chores and listening to their stories.  On a few rare occasions she snuck out of the castle entirely to play with the local children in the less affluent parts of the kingdom.

Jacquelyn craves a simpler life and is fascinated by common folk and the hardships they endure.  When the rest of her family is out hunting and riding, she is in the armoury, listening to the soldiers swap stories.  Because of her constant visits there the soldiers have tried to teach her how to wield various weapons, but this princess has no gift for sport.  If anything, she is competent enough with the short sword not to accidentally kill bystanders, but she is no shining star. 

Being the youngest princess, and not to mention the most childish one, she feels that there should be no attention on her, when it is honestly quite the opposite.  Her father's eye is ever on the lookout for mischief, which she is usually the centre of.  Being young she has her immature moments, one is when she still claims that she will never marry and will be perfectly content as an old maid.
Physical Description: While she is not as tall and ladylike as the rest of her sisters Jacquelyn has her own kind of grace.  Despite her small stature, her curves are generous and smooth.  When it is not combed down and fixed, her thick jet black hair is full of soft curls that fall down to her elbow.  Her brown eyes are large and full of curiosity.  Her walk has a sensual sway, as if she were dancing to a song that only she can hear.

But yes, after I posted my character I saw that yours would be a good fit for mine.  If your character can win her over, that is.

Character: Vera Hellatius
Role: Princess
Age: 19
Height: 5'5" / 165cm
Weight: 116 lbs / 53kg
Weapons: Composite Longbow, Cunning, Icy Demeanor

Personality: Vera is in many respects quite unlike her sisters. Her personality is cold and her aura is one of distance and lack of compassion. She is most at ease when she is alone, but even then she exudes an air of unpleasantness and contempt for her surroundings. Matters that concern her most are her own well being, power, material wealth and the ability to ride out into the wilderness whenever she pleases. Vera is an excellent wild game hunter and is an expert archer. For more sociable concerns, she cares not so much. She holds most of her sisters and even her father in disregard, but keeps the latter a secret. As for anyone else, there isn't any noticeable compassion. The only exception would be her horse.

She would have refused to partake in the tournament altogether, were it not for the fact that she found her sisters to be undeserving of the power that came with victory in the tournament. If anyone were to wield such power, it would be her and whatever suitor would appear to be most eligible. As such, the stakes of the contest were too important for her to disregard the event and had left Vera determined to partake in it. The rules of the tournament were clearly set, but that by no means meant Vera would abide to them at all times.

Background: Vera is the second daughter of the Emperor's second wife. Love for any of her sisters is either extremely well guarded or non existent. As a younger girl, it had been rumored that she had displayed cruelty towards several of her younger sister's pets and sometimes even the sisters themselves. Once beyond the age of 12, these reports no longer appeared. Either she had stopped with such petty acts, or was wise enough to have them remain unnoticed.

Her skill as a huntress is matched only by her older (half?)sister Avelyn, which is one of the very few entities with a pulse that she holds in high regard. Unlike her older sister though, Vera finds no use for hunting parties and often rides out herself and takes a more intensive approach to the sport of archery and hunting. Rumors had been floating around in court that at one time, Vera had purposefully and intently killed another hunter during a night in the dense forest. However, no person knew where the rumor had started, nor were any local hunters found to be missing. Eventually the rumor had been dismissed as a myth and no investigation had ever been conducted.

When Vera is not hunting, she is usually found in her room, studying ancient texts or ordering around servants to her petty desires. What knowledge she means to acquire from the books is unknown to most in the court, but her desire for fine and exotic fashion is well documented.

Physical Description: Vera is of average height but remarkably fragile looking for a huntress. Her femininity is somewhat underdeveloped compared to her siblings and it is often that visitors mistake her for being a sister much younger and further down the line. Vera has short brown hair that is left to lie straight across her face. Her skin is pale which leads many to believe that her solitude is often spent indoors, not taking into consideration that the princess might go out at night more often than by day.

Just curious, would I be allowed to create a hero as well? I'm not sure of your stance on the gender roleplay stuff. Seeing as there are more ladies than heroes, I would make a hero, and switch to a lady if the balance tipped either way.

Skies mentioned earlier that the ratio was 5 men and 4 women, so there may be male player who expressed interest outside the thread.

Scribbles: I know what you mean.  Looking back at it I think I played a cold, calculating character once, but she did it out of necessity than personality, and it still felt weird.

CarnivorousBunny,

Can definitely feel a little weird although having a reason does help, otherwise you just can't help but look at your own charry and think, "Gawd, why do you have to be such a bitch?" There's also the risk of overdoing it and having your character completely ostracized for the rest of the RP.

mj2002,

It's fine mj, it'll just give them a lot of stuff to chat about. They'll definitely have to share a hunting trip.
