Dhemlan Archives / An Offering of Gratitude
« on: January 26, 2018, 04:59:34 AM »
This wasn’t real.

It couldn’t be, right? It certainly didn’t feel real.

It had been nearly a week now since the raid. Since the Queen had died. Since Eun-Seong had suddenly found herself the District Queen. It still didn’t feel real. It was like she was in some horrible dream and she just couldn’t wake up.

She wasn’t ready, she certainly didn’t feel ready. It wasn’t that she hadn’t taken her apprenticeship seriously, but she hadn’t thought to have even a chance to rule until she was centuries older. Things never moved this quickly. Not in Dhemlan at least.

Close as they were to the Askavi border, raids weren’t uncommon, but never could they have predicted something this tragic. Eun herself had been apprenticing under her for over a century now. They’d had losses, of course, mostly guards. But there’d never been even a close call where the Queen was concerned. Not in the years Eun-Seong had been with the court at least.

Not just the Queen either, but the majority of her companions of the riding party. Including the Court Priestess. Fortunately a talented Priestess had been nearby on other business and volunteered her services. She’d even agreed to stay on in the role of Court Priestess. It was a relief because the court had been absolute chaos since news of the attack reached them.

There still seemed a thousand things to do in order to begin putting things back in order. It seemed never-ending, and Eun felt nowhere near ready. For all that she held the title and caste of Queen, she had no idea how to rule.

Right now, her Steward was probably trying to hunt her down to for a signature or tell her some task that needed done urgently or some such.

Which is exactly why she was avoiding him at the moment. It was too much. It was all too much. Too much far far too quickly. She didn’t have time to think about anything, and there was never time to so much as take a breath it seemed. She was suffocating in her duties and it hadn’t even yet been a week.

So she was hiding. Well, more accurately, she was searching for someone in an effort to distract herself.

The Priestess, in fact. Sang Rhee. She wanted the chance to thank her, properly. In the midst of all that had been happening, she wasn’t sure she’d gotten to exchange more than a couple words with the woman. That hardly seemed fair after she had done so much for them. Things were crazy enough as it is, she couldn’t imagine how much worse it might be if it weren’t for Lady Rhee.

It didn’t hurt that no one would be looking for her in the Court’s temple.

“Lady Rhee?” she called out tentatively, glancing around. She was fidgeting, hand in hand, full of anxious energy. Everyone wanted something from her, something she didn’t know how to give. Everyone was looking to her to be this pillar of strength, and she was anything but. She was just a scared girl who was in so far over her head. At least one on one, it was a little less intense.

At least that much she could handle... probably.

The First Circle
Connected to Eun-Seong Baek


Master of the Guard


General Information:
Eun just recently inherited her Court when the former Queen was slain. Her MotG is likely inherited. Given that their district includes a large portion of the border to Askavi, the MotG would have to be a well-seasoned warrior. If inherited, he would likely feel a great deal of guilt over the prior Queen’s death. Alternatively, the prior MotG could have been slain alongside the Queen, and this be a recent promotion. He would have to be a very distinguished warrior to have earned it.

Also worth noting, clashing so frequently with the Eyriens, this character would likely have strong feelings about Dhemlan’s rule of Askavi. They may have a hatred for the Eyriens or feel that the warring is pointless and futile. Eun-Seong harbors a belief that preventing deaths is more important than all else, including forcibly maintaining control of Askavi. This opinion could put these two at odds or make them unlikely allies.

Requested Caste: Any
Relationship: Master of the Guard
Preferred Jewels: Any
Face Claim: Any


First Escort


General Information:
There is a remote possibility that this person was inherited from the prior court. However, it is also highly likely that this role would have been given to her brother, Jae-Hyuk Baek. They have always been close and he has always acted as her escort and protector. For more information about their relationship see her app or his want ad here.

Requested Caste: Any
Relationship: First Escort/Friend/ Maybe Brother
Preferred Jewels: Any OR Summer Sky - Green family roll
Face Claim: Any


Court Healer


General Information:
Eun just recently inherited her Court when the former Queen was slain. Her Court Healer is likely inherited. They would have to be very skilled at trauma healing given the likelihood of Eyrien raids in their District. There may be some guilt over the prior Queen’s death, or a grim outlook after the amount of bloodshed they’ve seen.

Requested Caste: Healer
Relationship: Healer
Preferred Jewels: Any
Face Claim: Possible face claims


Court Seer


General Information:
Eun just recently inherited her Court when the former Queen was slain. Her Seer could be inherited. Alternatively, she could have put someone she trained with into the position. Some might view the prior Queen’s Seer as having failed her duty in not sensing the omen of the raid that killed the Queen and much of her riding party. Eun would love to have someone she knows she could trust in this role. Also, it is preferable that the Seer be very skilled with Tangled Webs as that is one of Eun-Seong’s weaknesses in Widow craft.

Requested Caste: Black Widow
Relationship: Seer, possible friend
Preferred Jewels: Any
Face Claim: Any

The Baek Family
related to Eun-Seong Baek


Jae-Hyuk Baek

General Information:
Jae-Hyuk has been enamored with his baby sister since she was born. He often cared for her while their parents were working, and he taught her to ride a horse when she was very young. He often defended her against their sister and has always felt very protective of her. He followed her to Busei to attend prep school there. He passed the Territory Exams on his first try, always intent on following his sister and serving her however he could. He would make an excellent candidate for her First Escort.

Age Approx 5-10 years older than Eun, so 169-174 years old
Requested Caste: Prince
Relationship: Brother/Friend
Preferred Jewels: Summer Sky - Green family roll
Face Claim: Any, preferably with some resemblance


Jang-Mi

General Information:
Jang-Mi has never liked her sister. Born just after her Birthright, she felt as though baby Eun stole the attention and adoration that was rightfully hers. She was distant from the child, and resented that their brother preferred the baby sister to her. She enjoyed having a darker birthright than Eun, but loathed that she was a Queen and suddenly became the darling of their entire nomadic community. Despite their shared caste, she felt that their mother preferred her Queen daughter instead. She aspired to be the Priestess-Singer that her mother had once wanted to be before marrying their father to become a horse breeder instead. It is possible she may have remained in Anahi Province or may have chosen to travel elsewhere in Dhemlan.

I’d love to explore their antagonistic relationship now that they’ve had over a century apart to grow into themselves. 

Age Approx 12-14 years older than Eun, so 176-178 years old
Requested Caste: Priestess
Relationship: Estranged Sister
Preferred Jewels: Summer Sky - Opal
Face Claim: Any, preferably with some resemblance

The Scarlet Rose
Come One, Come All

The Scarlet Rose is a Red Moon house unlike any other. They not only offer their clients all manner of companionship and pampering, they are also a theatre and hub of entertainment. For more on the workings of the Scarlet Rose see here.


Hosts and Entertainers


General Information:
Hosts and entertainers are two sides of a coin. Some employees choose to provide both services, while others find only one suits their particular needs. Hosts offer platonic companionship which can be as simple as sharing a meal or otherwise doting on their client. Entertainers are those who provide intimate pleasures to their clients as would be typical of a Red Moon house.

All castes and jewels are acceptable.


Performers


General Information:
The Scarlet Rose is also a fully functioning theatre. They do both full scale productions and offer individual acts consistently. As such, in addition to actors, they employ singers, musicians, dancers, illusionists, etc. Anyone who can entertain a crowd.

All castes and jewels are acceptable.


Tech Crew


General Information:
In order to put on productions, the Rose naturally must employ not just the performers, but skilled individuals who can create the scenery, costumes, lighting, etc that makes for a full experience.

All castes and jewels are acceptable.


Composer


General Information:
For the current upcoming production, the Scarlet Rose is looking to hire a composer to turn a play into a musical. Any caste or jewels are acceptable for this position.


Assistant/Secretary


General Information:
Caitlin is the half of the owners responsible for matters such as paperwork, budgets, payroll, and organization. As such, she is finally caving and looking for someone to help her manage everything. Whoever is hired will need to be patient and have an eye for detail in order to keep things organized as she wishes, but she is a very straightforward and fair employer.

Any caste or Jewels (or lack thereof) is perfectly acceptable for this role.
 

Head Healer


General Information:
The Rose has a current staff of 3 Healers to see to the health of their employees and to provide services such as expert massages. The Head Healer is in charge of the other 2 employees and likely has a lodging provided as a part of their employ to be certain someone is always on hand in case of emergency.

Any Jewels are acceptable for this position(s).


Miscellaneous


In addition to all listed above, a variety of additional support staff is required for the Scarlet Rose to run smoothly. Some examples include security, cleaning staff, cooks, waiters, etc. There is truly something for everyone. All castes and jewels are acceptable.

Equally important are the establishment’s patrons. Naturally a business is nothing without the paying clients whose needs it fulfills.
