| November 20, 2012 | 0 Comments





CHARACTER BIOGRAPHY: 3 million years in the future the human race has expanded into the far reaches of Universe.  Much of these civilizations of yet to come, are unaware of their earthly origins.  Many of these civilizations are made up of the descendants of mankind could hardly be recognizable from us today. One of the worlds our descendents will colonize is millions of light years away and known to its inhabitants as Jorol.  It was colonized 2 million years ago by several parties.  These groups eventually grew into seven distinct offshoots of the human race, having adapted to their particular climates and habitats.

One of these offshoots are called The Norlympians.  They resemble us physically for the most part.  Their culture is that collection of city states that bands together for economic and defensive purposes.  One of the most powerful of these city states is that of Kortha, a people who pride themselves on its cosmopolitan, city and market driven society.  Its military, economy, and, and society were the envy of its neighbors.  Its leader was chosen from the patrician classes and is known as the First Prime.  The  current First Prime at the beginning of our tale was Martelle of the House of Valden.  His son was a up and coming Military Commander by the name of Doule.  Doule was a brilliant warrior, soldier, statesman, and tactician.  He was also smug and arrogant sort that bought into the propaganda of Kortha supremacy in the grand scheme of things.

This world view was shattered when a long thought lost race that once occupied the surface world of Jorol, before being driven underground.  It took them eons to rebuild, but finally they found the resource and opportunity to re-take their homeworld.  These organic metal beings are known as the Frahl Wraiths.  They rose to the surface one evening, without warning, and with their terrible arsenal and military might, laid waste to Kortha in one evening, slaughtering over 80% of the population, and taking those few that did not escape into slavery.  Doule managed to escape, but not without witnessing the deaths of his men, his parents and the abduction of his younger sister, Clarene. Doule, managed to make it to his Grandfather’s villa, 20 miles north.  There he recovers and begins his quest to free his people from captivity, turn back the Frahl Wraiths, and return peace and security to the seven nations of Jorol.  To do this though, he will need to enlist the aid of the rulers of those nations.  A task not so simple, when one considers Norlympia has had strained relations with these nations for centuries…
