#1PostSubject: The Blue Lioness - Lady Florence Gaheris   Fri Aug 18, 2017 4:58 pm


Lady Florence Gaheris

Name:
 Lady Florence Gaheris
Heritage: Daughter of Lord Arthur Gaheris, Chief Kingsguard of the King and Protector of the realm and Lady Hildga Gaheris.
Siblings: Ser William Gaheris, The Black Draconis - Elite Kingsguard of the King.
House Gaheris: One of the great noble houses. For a millennia, House Gaheris have been loyal to the protection of the royal kingdom and the people within its realm, with tradition that the men are trained for combat and duty in order to best serve upon the Royal Kingsguard, the most elite level of warrior, charged with ensuring the safety of the royal family and their people. House Gaheris has been home to several of the greatest Knights of legend, helping to secure the prestige that is expected of their house name. House of Ser Alexander Gaheris, the greatest known Knight of lore, a knight of profound legendary status, the man to have ended The Great War 2000 years ago, putting an end to the reign of the Dark Wights and Dragons.

Age: 24
Height: 5' 9"
Build: Naturally athletic, Physically strong yet slender.
Eyes: Red (Changes to Blue when her 'Stone of Gaheris' is active).
Hair: Natural Red Haired.
Sexual Orientation: Zero preference. Bonds with a beings soul, not gender or appearance.
Attitude: Calm, cool and collected. Due to her high intelligence, she is observant of as much of the fine details as possible at all time, which can come across as her not paying attention. Extremely honorable, her word is her bond, which she will never break. Politically minded in general but on occasion, is able to forego the politics of a situation in order to simply act to achieve the best interest of the many. Enjoys some taboo's in the form of alcohol and smoking.
Appearance: Nimble and swift, she is graceful in her movement, almost silent in her light step. Lady Gaheris prefers to keep a low profile and opts to wear a lightweight black hooded cloak, with gold silk trimming, usually worn open and free-flowing. A black leather crop-top covers her upper body enough to keep her modesty, though not too much as to restrict her movements, her stomach on show. The top is adorned with several buckled straps for decoration more than practical use. Black leather trousers, also with buckled straps around the thighs for decoration, are tight in appearance but the material is flexible enough that there is zero restriction to the movement of her legs. The same black leather with buckled straps extend to her leather boots that stop about an inch beneath her knees. Black gloves worn on both hands, with the left hand fully covered whilst the right hands glove are fingerless, stopping at her first knuckle. Lady Gaheris wears no jewellery except for her neckless pendant containing her Grandfathers 'Stone of Gaheris'.

Stones of Agaeshia: The Stones of Agaeshia are gifted to the thirteen noble houses, charged to serve the Royal House as knights of the royal Kingsguard. Each son of the thirteen houses upon completing training and becoming strong enough to become accepted into the Kingsguard, receives a crystal clear gemstone (Forged when the King places an Obsidian stone into the eternal dragons flame, gifted to the royal lineage a millennium ago by the Kings personal dragon and friend Agaeshia, until the Obsidian gem is removed in a magical crystal clear state). These gemstones are fixed within an open pendant and attached to a neckless before being gifted to the Kingsguard, granting the magical ability of absolute protection. During the ceremony of the birth of a new Kingsguard, when presented with the clear gemstone, the stone and new recipient are magically bonded as the stone detects the presence of a new protector of the realm. Once the bond is created, the gemstone begins to take on a colour most suited to the new knights truth and will remain in a glowing, colourful state until the death of its bearer. Upon death, the soul of the gems bearer is absorbed within the stone, to which these souls can act as spiritual guidance to whomever comes to inherit the gemstones thereafter. 

 

Stone of Gaheris - Abilities: One of the thirteen Stones of Agaeshia, gifted to House Gaheris. The stone is activated through the bearers mind & thoughts. 
(1) The Kingsguard immediately increases his internal aura, which is the natural energy in control over ones body, increasing their speed, strength and natural abilities. The users body becomes wrapped in an aura that appears like translucent flames, taking on the colour of their gemstone.
(2) The Kingsguard is able to magically summon a suit of armour, unique to that respective Kingsguard, that shrouds the user and protects from most physical harm.
(3) The Kingsguard is able to magically summon various weapons dependent on the users preference to the situation (Swords, Axes, Maces, Lances, Spears & Bows). The Kingsguard is also able to summon two shields, one small for minor blocking and one large, requiring the use of both arms to maintain.

History of Lady Florence Gaheris: Ever since she was old enough to remember, she had watched her father train her older brother Bill in the fighting arts of the Kingsguard, preparing him to one day be strong enough to take his oath and accept his fate of becoming one of the Kings personal protectors. Being a lady of the House Gaheris meant that this gifted inheritance would never be granted to herself personally, to which this fact greatly frustrated and annoyed the young lady of her house. She had absolutely no intention of becoming a true lady and concentrating on perfecting her role as wife, maiden to whatever noble husband her parents deemed as a fit enough match, and bearer of children and nothing more. Though the idea of marriage and children was a nice prospect, being nothing more than this fate was a life well wasted in her young eyes.
At every opportunity the young lady would pick up a sparring sword or bow and practice whilst watching her father & brother go at it, however this would only ever end in being disciplined by both parents in order to teach her the lesson of knowing her place. This deterrent inevitably failed, with her becoming more determined each time and choosing to instead practice in seclusion on her own. One day during her private practice, her brother had stumbled across her and had stood in silence watching her train, the young lady completely oblivious to his presence. Upon the realisation that she had once more been caught, she couldn't help but show the panic on her face at the idea of being stopped from these personal private sessions as well.. however having taken notice of the natural talent of swords play on show from his younger sibling, her brother decided to take it upon himself to continue her training in private with him as her teacher, allowing her to inherit the teachings of their father & the Kingsguard. 

Several years passed and Lady Gaheris had not only become a lot stronger and more skilled, but had grown into a fine young woman. Her brother William had followed his fate and had become a skilled member of the Kingsguard, working under the guidance & council of their father, the Chief of the Kingsguard. A few months after her 17th birthday, Lady Gaheris received a personal invitation to attend an audience with the King. She was fully aware of the traditions and rules of the Kingsguard, however through nothing more than pure belief and confidence in her skills as a warrior, as well as knowing that the Royal Kingsguard would also be in attendance with the King, she had made the decision to request in person from both the King himself and more importantly her father, to ask to serve upon the Kingsguard in protecting the realm. 
Lady Florence Gaheris had walked up the center isle of the Grand Hall as light and as graceful as petals being danced about in the wind. The Grand Hall was packed from front to back with the people of the realm in attendance, watching and lapping up the grand proceedures of the royal family and the great noble houses. At the very front was an grand Obsidian throne, upon which the King sat, thirteen members of the Kingsguard arched in a line either side of the throne (7 to the left, 6 to the right) with her father and the Chief Kingsguard stood immediately right of the King as personal adviser and friend. Both the King and her father were smiling as she got closer, she briefly glanced at her brother who too was smiling before nodding his head in her direction in welcome. 
Lady Gaheris curtsied as is tradition for a Lady in the presence of a member of the royal house, before the King began his long winded dialogue to his audience, bringing his speech to a close before gazing his sights unto her. The words that preceded his speech instantly destroyed the smile on her face, as with a mix of anger and horror, she turned to face her father. The King and her father had come to the agreement that the young Lady Gaheris was now of age to be married off to one of the heirs of another noble house. Refusing to accept her fate, Lady Gaheris rallied back with her refusal of the arranged marriage and personal request in joining the Kingsguard. The Grand Hall fell into a mix of shock, astonishment and pure uproar, as the King questioned the meaning behind such abhorrent behaviour, such a stupid request and absolute disregard for tradition. Her father, furious with her apologised to the King, stating he would punish her for her insolence, before taking steps towards his daughter.. she looked at her brother with sadness upon both their faces, as her brother mouthed the word "run". Lady Gaheris instantly turned and with her self-trained swiftness, escaped the proceedings and headed for home. 

Arriving at her home, she began to panic, the realisation that by refusing the Kings offer of marriage, dishonoring the noble house with whom she was to marry and being adamant on her request to join the Royal Kingsguard, she had unavoidably brought dishonor to herself and more importantly, her family. With this is mind and being fully aware of the punishment that must be granted in such a case, she had decided to leave at once. Quickly grabbing some foods and stockpiling them into a pouch attached to her trousers waistline, she headed for the door before coming to a stand still as a feint recognisable voice like a whisper, caressed her mind. She turned her head and gazed upon the mantle piece above the fire pit, to where an ornamental box sat in mild dust, seemed to be from which the voice emanated from. She walked over to the box and tentatively opened it, to reveal her Grandfather's Royal Kingsguard neckless at rest, colourless in its slumber since his death. The whispering noise continued as she stared at the pendant confused.. unsure of the meaning of this, she decided to steal it and take it with her, promising to return it one day. 
Lady Gaheris grabbed the the necklass by the gemstone in her right hand, then prepared to turn and run. A sudden ice cold rush of tingles began to eat away at her hand, increasing its speed as it shot right through her, the sensation of placing her heart into the freezing ice cold waters of the north took over her chest. She barely had chance to turn her face towards the now glowing gemstone in her hand, when a sudden extreme rush of cold energy burst its way through her, knocking her flying through the air, landing in a heap a good few feet away from the fire pit. For what felt like an eternity but in reality was no more than a few seconds, Lady Gaheris snapped out of her dazed state and stared upon the now icy blue glowing gemstone that was once lifeless... somehow the gemstone had chosen her to bond with. The door to her house swung open, her mother and enraged father standing in the doorway, her fathers physical appearance changing in a matter of seconds from one of rage and anger, through to confusion and disbelief before ending at confusion and partial acceptance. As swiftly as she had escaped the Grand Hall, Lady Gaheris rose back to her feet, clasping the neckless as tight as physically possible and strode towards the doorway and her parents.. with tears in her eyes, she hugged her mother before turning to stare into her fathers eyes, saying aloud softly.. "I'm sorry....". Her father didn't respond with words but his eyes told her everything, she stepped past both her parents, neither one attempting to stop her as she turned, and began running....
Years have passed since that fateful day and well traveled she has become. Though she still carries her house name Gaheris and wears the Stone of Gaheris amulet, she has never returned back to her homelands. The magic and presence of her Grandfather's voice and other souls within the amulet have guided her across several worlds, protecting the people as she goes, honing her skills in the process. Though never a Kingsguard, her reputation as a protector of the people and her fighting prowess in the service of protecting the people from beasts, demons and mercenaries, has started to precede her. Her victories and notoriety for both courage and honour, coupled with the presence of a blue flamed aura that engulfs her upon activation of her Stone of Gaheris, has earned her the title - The Blue Lioness.

Well she is only human. Though she gets a speed & strength increase, its not unbeatable and is probably no greater than that of a werewolf/vampire/elven ability. The magical armor might be able to stop a standard level solider from cutting through with an ordinary sword but that level of attack will still leave bruising, and anything of a stronger nature or serious blunt force will also penetrate through via shock impact damage etc with potential to break bones or damage her internally...

There are plenty of means of hurting her or worse, I just am not a fan of having to tell everyone! Surely its more fun to come work out her weaknesses for yourself no?  Wink

Ah yes, there was no problem, dont get me wrong. But it's kind of a rule to list weaknesses against a character. But as long as there are weaknesses i guess its cool. Im just trying to get a few things straight :3

It's cool, it is also completely understandable, what with the amount of people that feel they can't roleplay without the need for a dramatically OP character at their disposal. Personally for me, the risk of being able to lose your favourite character during a T1 battle or whilst story telling because the author is unable to be creative or forward thinking enough, is all part of the thrill of it all Smile

I would always stop prior to delivering a final blow anyway so its fine. I would always insist on everyone involved in that sort of match up to agree prior to starting the only one shall leave alive etc

SO whats the community like here? Have yet to actually have enough time to work my way through these forums to determine the level of activity, type of activity and so forth Surprised
