High Queen Faction:
the Kingdom of Sahal Age:
Believe it or not, Annora actually doesn't have big goals of ruling beyond her own territory of Sahal. Does she want peace? Not exactly. She was born and raised to be a true warrior, and a warrior needs battle. Does she wish to conquer? Kind of, but she also know conquering isn't something immediate, it takes planing. She does wish to see the other factions fall, perhaps tear themselves to pieces or reduce themselves to rubble. The bickering between the two is just annoying anyway. Let them destroy each other and she can come pick up the pieces. But if
they can convince her of peace, well, she might
consider it. Provided the stakes are properly to her liking. She's not looking forward to it. She sees the nobles
of the other factions as having theoretical sticks stuck up their asses. Personality: Thunderous tides shall awaken her wrath
Like lightning in the dead of night
Her sword shall be sharp
Her blade tainted with red
Her conquer shall spread through sands of the south
Annora is a true warrior. She is strong, smart, and commanding. Her people respect her because she has proven herself. She often feels the need to prove herself to others. She holds herself and acts with every demeanor of what she is, a warrior queen. She is rough, and can be rude by the others factions standards. But she is by no means dumb. She had studied and strategicalize. She may not have manners and edicate. She may be quick to temper and draw weapons at times. But that does not make her less than them in mind. Only different. Appearance:
Annora stands at five feet seven inches tall. She has long black with bangs that is not especially well kept up with, but at least looks brushed occasionally. Her eyes are a bright blue-gray, while her skin is usually finely tanned from her time in the sun. Her body is athletic, toned and strong at 130 pounds. Her curves are noticeable, with C-cup breasts, and hips to nicely balance them. She usually dresses, not in queenly garments, but in the clothes of a warrior, and she always has noticeable weapons on her. Biography:
Born the daughter of a high Warload. Annora had her start before she could even walk. He trained his daughter to the upmost mark. With blade and with arrow, she trained. Upon horses she rode into traitorous lands. Her father proclaimed himself the Count of Eredor, Lord of the Steeds. He and his father before him held great power within the land. Her grandfather rose quickly through the ranks. They had a great wealth of horses, of which he was trained greatly in. He gained loyalty, and created a Calvary of sorts. He passed this power, honor, glory, and talent onto his son. His son intended to do the same with his daughter. So, Annora trained and learned and followed her father's lead. Annora was not altogether unkind, nor was her father. They would not have been so good with their horses had they been. But they craved the honor power brought. Yet, they tended to stay fairly stationary. He had been older when he fathered Annora, her mother had died when she was young. He was content in training her to maintain the power that he held.
However, feeling threatened by the Évreux's steady fortress, the High King felt threatened. He wished to take them out, so when she was 20, they were attacked in the dead of night by the High King's forces. Her father was killed, and many of their loyal people and horses. Annora tasted the first flavors of revenge upon her conscious. She lay in wait, she plotted, she learned, she built her following up.
After a year, her house was ready, though not perfect. It was around this time that she first met Kali Charna. She was a mere teenaged girl, stealing from a market Annora happened to be mulling around in. Something about the girl intrigued Annora, so she helped Kali escape. She could've left her on her own, but instead, she took the girl back to her mansion. They became close friends, almost a sisterly bond one could say. Annora taught Kali what she could about the art of war and her plot for revenge. Annora wanted to make sure
That plot would not be put into place until three years ago. Respectively, Annora simply rode up to where the High King lived with a few solders of her own, Kali at her right side, and challenged the King. She knew his temperament would not allow him to say no. She had studied up on him. So, challenge him she did, to a duel at that. He accepted of course, and so they dueled. It was a long and hard duel, but the ending is what mattered. It ended with her beheading the King. This of course created a flurry of anger from the King's own men, but when they moved towards her, they were blocked by her mounted men. With the King's head in hand, she declared herself Queen, and warned that all should respect her as such. Given the criminals code of honor that liked to run through Sahal, most everybody did. She had proven herself strong enough, they would be respect that. Though not everybody did...
Nonetheless, she was now Queen, with Kali at her right hand. She declared the title of Princess upon her, to signify that Kali was not only her friend, but she who was second in command of the country.
