[The Rotborn Warrior]

Zareh is one of the highest ranking fighters in the Empire, not ranked much lower than the Frightful Trinity, in the same class as them, and is one often seen at the frontline during fights. He is a lot older than his appearance suggests, though his true age is unknown. He has been with the Empire for a long time, longer than they have been an Empire, having joined during their Bubbling Pit days in the Blacksand Annex, though his stay, due to him being more of a traveler, wasn’t intended to be permanent. The fact he seemed needed after a while coerced him into staying with them for the time being. And now, he can’t see himself permanently leaving them, though he does still leave from time to time to ease his wanderlust. He has never been one to stay in one area for long periods of time without moving around, ever since he lost his original home.

He was born in a small village in the Abiding Boneyard, on the edge of Rotrock Rim, where the dragons were few, but strong. He learned early on that the reason his mother wasn’t around was due to the fact that she was the Plaguebringer Herself. So in the beginning, he’s known his true parentage and has done what he can over the years to prove that he is a worthy son of hers. It may or may not have put a little bit of pressure on him as a kid, though he didn’t let that get to him too much, nor did he use it to his advantage.

Needless to say, he was only one of three in the village that survived a nasty Shade assault that tore it completely apart one fateful morning. He and the other two, one of which was an old Imperial named Keifer, and the other a bright red Wildclaw named Sata (who Zareh himself had to kill later on due to a betrayal that nearly resulted in the death of a hatchling) banded up together afterwards, on a journey that, at the time, likely didn’t have an end, to hunt down creatures of the Shade to help the world overall. They gathered many allies in the end, including a dragon who ended up being Zareh’s Charge, a female Guardian named Ida.

Eventually though, it all did come to an end after they bit off more than they could chew, which resulted in the death of almost all of the dragons that had gathered in this one large pack. Zareh, a male Guardian named Yukikaze, and a female Wildclaw named Vasska were the only ones to survive, though Ida, due to not being involved since she was taking care of hatchlings of her own and another dragon’s, also didn’t perish. Until he reunited with the two other survivors later, Zareh, due to him waking up first and dragging himself out, thought he had been the only one to survive the attack, same with Ida once he had told her what had happened. The two traveled together, away from that, once Zareh was recovered enough to make a longer journey, eventually having kids of their own, though they never considered themselves mates, at least not for long. He doesn’t know where any of them are, same with Ida’s first, original kids, but he does hope they’re alive and well. Not only that, but Ida herself had also gone missing years and years ago, and Zareh only knows she’s still alive due to her being his Charge. He knows that he’d get consequences if she died, and due to the lack of those, he knows she’s still out there.

He doesn’t actively hunt Shade creatures in the way he used to, though he still keeps an eye and ear out for Shade happenings so he can go and hunt things down. He is still a Shade Hunter, definitely, but he only seems to track down creatures that have been doing a lot of damage, and he doesn’t travel constantly in search for them. He also used to be hateful towards anything Shade related, though now, he does know that there are Shade possessed/tainted beings who aren’t harmful or very harmful, so he does his best to keep an open mind about it. Even then though, there’s no harm in being wary.

He was born with some of the markings that adourn his body, the wing, eye, and neck markings, to be precise. The rest of the markings are tattooing and jewelry, to enhance his natural look overall. The end result does tend to make him look a little intimidating, especially considering his scars, though he doesn’t mind much. He does like the edge it gives him.

His body is also littered with scars, from the years of traveling and fighting, the most notable being the one that passes over one of his eyes (which thankfully didn’t affect his vision) and a burn scar that covers a lot of his right back leg, rendering the whole thing sensitive, even the untouched skin/scales. He’s very proud of his scars, for they are proof of what he has gone through, proof of the fact that he’s a survivor, something that most Plague dragons would take pride in. Insulting his scarred appearance is one of the quickest ways to incite his temper and lose his respect, second only to insulting/talking bad about his Mother. He does not take insults to his heritage well, and doing either of the above things is insulting his heritage as far as he’s concerned. Questioning his loyalty is another way to get him riled up easily.

Those and his muscular build make him quite a sight, especially in battle. He’s also an experienced and strong fighter, hard to take down and very good at taking others down. He’s one of the individuals involved in battles that tends to get multiple enemies on him at once, due to how much of a threat he is known to be, despite the fact that it’s rare for him to wear armour heavier than light. He’s also one of the individuals who leads groups if the fighters need to separate.

He’s devoted, loyal, and even though he’s not as hot-tempered as he was in his youth, he still isn’t hard to anger overall. Angering him is not suggested, for he’s known to get quite irrational and impulsive when angered enough, and that’s a thing that will likely never change. He is also definitely the type to hold grudges, and in addition he has a good memory, so anything done against him will likely never be forgotten. He also is serious for the most part, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a sense of humor, for he does, though it’s hard to coax out of him sometimes.

He still does travel and move about, of course, so he’s often not seen in the Empire for days on end. A lot of his being gone does have to do with his Hunting, though other times he just travels and moves about just to do that, to keep from staying in one place for too long. It’s not common to see him wandering or walking the streets of the city, since he usually spends a lot of time with the other fighters when he’s not somewhere else entirely. However, it’s also not a rare sight for others to see him in one of the taverns at night, for that is the kind of place he enjoys relaxing in, though sparring with others is oddly relaxing to him as well.

The Cosa case

You can find me on some iOS otome as Cosa. I’m Cosa where I used to be active as Lisythea (Lisythea is not dead, but not active for various reasions).

I don’t play the following otome seriously now, BUT I login everyday and if you want to add me let me know here or on the game since I’ll invite you in lessons and send you items if I get them. You don’t need to send me back items because I’ll keep a very low charm and like I’ve said I’m not seriously playing these otome. I’m here just in case. I think it’s not a bad thing for you to add me ‘cause of the items, but remember that I’m not playing to get high charm or anything, so you will get a few items, but maybe I could help you. ^.^ 

If you want to help me too add me as Lysithea on the games that you can find above and send me all that you can! (The cindereala contract, My sweet proposal, Royal midnight kiss, Sweer scandal returns, voltage party and more but it’s another story).

Sooo…these are the otomes where you can find me as Cosa:

I’m back everywhere as Lysithea! <3

anonymous asked:

Say your King dies suddenly and leaves a child heir to the throne. As a noble, how would you secure yourself as a regent?

Depends on the type of noble you are. A lot of regency is based on access to the person of the king, so family members (especially mothers) have a good reason to have frequent access to the king. Councilors entrusted with important positions are also useful, leveraging that position for actions that require the royal seal. Of course, a regency based on controlling the person of the child king runs the risk of someone waging a war to liberate said child.

A councilor could attempt to forge a royal writ naming themselves as regent and using the king’s signet ring, though a lot of people will claim that it is a forgery because of the convenient timing. The farther back you go with the king, the more credibility you might have, William the Conqueror invaded England with his papal sanction and with his long period of time spent with Edward the Confessor.

You could also use precedent from the last time your particular nation had a regency. Drawing parallels can get sacred precedent on your side.

Tagging @goodqueenaly on this. She probably has more info.

Thanks for the question, Anon.

SomethingLikeALawyer, Hand of the King

Why I don’t post much…..

  • I want to explain why I hardly ever post anything and believe me it’s not because I’m lazy it’s cuz I don’t feel motivated enough to do things I use to feel motivated to do. What I mean is that Since I started college last year in September I have had all my time and energy focused on college work. Last year I had to do like 5 or 6 subjects cuz I didn’t have the grades I needed for the subject I wanted to do, so last year it was all about getting the marks I needed for the course I wanted to do. Now this year I’m doing the course I want to do but I’m doing level 2 which is gcse instead of A level. And this course is probably taking up so much more time to try and get all the units we’ve done so far up to date. These are the reasons why I haven’t been posting much. Now believe me when I say this but I have sooo many screenshots to post and so many ideas I want to share that I’m really excited to do so. No around june/July time I should hopefully be posting more if I’m not in an aprenticeship or a proper job. But i definately do have things i want to start posting. For example, lovestruck/choices/voltage game theories and just random screenshots of games to post. And this has definitely been on my mind a lot recently along with other stuff, but I think it’s important to keep you all in the loop and be honest instead of looking like someone who can’t be bothered and literally forgot about my this. So soon maybe this week or next week~if I feel ready and everything is up to date with college~ I should post something cuz I really want to, and I hope that what I want to post will be different and more interesting. But yes she I’m talking about theories like gangsters in love or the royal romance or something lie that its gonna be a mess so I apologize in advance for my poor explain in cuz I’m bad at explaining.
  • Also how do people post do regularly 😕😅

  • In September, King Gongmin was assassinated.
  • After losing his beloved wife Princess Noguk, the king’s madness had been aggravated. He forced his other consorts to sleep with his royal guards (Jajewi).
  • When he learned from Eunuch Choi Man-Saeng that Lady Han (one of his 4 consorts) was pregnant with Hong Ryun, he decided to kill Hong Ryun as well as those who knew the truth. He wanted to make the baby his own child, so he talked about his plan to seal their lips under the influence of alcohol and fell asleep.
  • Eunuch Choi Man-Saeng was afraid of being killed, so he let the royal guards know about it. As a result, Hong Ryun and Choi Man-Saeng killed the king sleeping in the bedroom, and gave false testimony that an assassin from outside killed the king.

Three years ago, the little boy had been officially declared by King Gongmin as his son from palace maid Lady Han, not from Shin Don’s slave girl Ban-Ya. In fact, it is one of the biggest mystery of Korean history whether he was a real son of King Gongmin or not.
  • By crowning the boy as a puppet king, Dodang trio including Yi In-Im took over the reigns of the court.
  • In November, a Ming Chinese envoy was killed in Goryeo. The conflict between Ming China and Goryeo was turning ugly.


  • As a result, the Dodang trio wanted to reestablish the ties with Northern Yuan (Mongols). They appointed Jung Do-Jeon as a greeter for the Mongol envoy.
  • Jung Do-Jeon rejected their order, claiming “It is against the late king’s will. If you appoint me as a greeter, I will either kill the Mongol envoy or sent him away to Ming China!” Therefore, Jung Do-Jeon was arrested by the raged nobles. (ep. 2, Jung Do-Jeon’s Jangpyeong Gate Uprising)
  • He spent 4 years in exile in Naju, Jeolla province, where he learned a lot about the impoverished conditions of Goryeo commoners and designed the concrete revolution plan.


  • In March, Ban-Ya claimed in front of the Queen dowager’s palace that she was the current king’s real mother.
  • Yi In-Im ordered to kill her by throwing her away to the Imjin river.
  • In December, Dodang decided to kill the baby girl born from Lady Han with Hong Ryun, the cause of King Gongmin’s assasination.


  • In April, Japanese pirates attacked the capital. General Choi Young and Yi Seong-Gye defeated them.


  • In August, The naval battle of Jinpo against Japanese pirates. It was Goryeo’s first military use of gunpowder which was created by General Choi Mu-Seon. (ep 16, Yi Bang-Woo’s comment)

  • Yi Bang-Won entered Sungkyunkwan.
  • Professor Min Je of Sungkyunkwan decided to make him his son-in-law.
  • Yi Bang-Won married Min Je’s second daughter. She was 2 years older than him. (ep. 15)
  • Hobaldo, the poweful Jurchen chief in alliance with Ming China, invaded the northeast region of Goryeo. (ep. 11)

  • In August, Yi Seong-Gye defeated Hobaldo and submitted the border stabilization plan to Dodang. (ep. 9~12)
  • In September, Yi Seong-Gye returned to Gaegyung and entered into politics. (ep. 12)


  • Jung Do-Jeon made his comeback to politics by the help of Yi Seong-Gye. (ep. 17)
  • In July, Jung Mong-Joo and Jung Do-Jeon were sent to Ming China as envoys.


  • In August, Yi In-Im (“Yi In-Gyeom” in SFD) resigned from politics because of his old age. (ep. 13)


  • In January, Jo Ban’s rebellion broke out. It was fabricated by Yeom Heung-Bang (”Hong In-Bang” in SFD). (ep 15~16)
  • General Choi Young joined forces with Yi Seong-Gye and drove out the corrupt Dodang trio.
  • Yeom Heung-Bang (Hong In-Bang) and Yim Gyeon-Mi (Gil Tae-Mi) were arrested and executed. Thousands of their relatives were killed, too.
  • Yi In-Im (Yi In-Gyeom) was not killed. He was exiled to his hometown because he was good friends with Choi Young. (ep. 19)
  • As a result, Choi Young and Yi Seong-Gye became the top 2 leaders of the Goryeo court.
  • In March, King U married Choi Young’s daughter to maintain his power. (ep. 19)
  • Around the same time, Ming China demanded the return of Goryeo‘s Northern territory.  It was the land that the former king (King Gongmin) had ordered General Choi Young to retrieve from pro-Mongol forces in 1356. Yi Seong-Gye and his father also had helped it. (ep. 1) 
  • It had been a national project for Goryeo to retrieve the lost territory of ancient Goguryeo kingdom. Therefore, Ming’s demand made the diplomatic ties between the two countries significantly damaged. (ep 19~20)
  • In April, King U and General Choi Young drafted soldiers in the name of a hunt. They ordered General Yi Seong-Gye to carry out a preemptive strike against the Ming Chinese base in the Liaodong peninsula. (ep 19)
  • Yi Seong-Gye suggested 4 reasons why they should not go to war, but his opinion was dismissed by Choi Young. (ep 20)
  • In April, Yi Seong-Gye and Jo Min-Soo were sent to the Liaodong Conquest. Choi Young was supposed to lead the expedition, but King U’s desperate request made his mind weaken and he decided to stay with the king at the last moment.
  • In May, Yi Seong-Gye’s army was stranded on Wihwa island, the northern border on the Apnok river between Goryeo and Ming China, due to increased water from heavy rain. Hundreds of soldiers dying in the process of driving a stake in the river to put a floating bridge.
  • Despite of Yi Seong-Gye’s desperate messages, Choi Young constantly urged them to cross the river.
  • Yi Seong-Gye arrested Choi Young’s messenger Kim Wan, and finally decided to stage a military coup.
  • May 22, Yi Seong-Gye and Jo Min-Soo started to retreat from Wihwa island. (* Wihwa island Retreat.  ep. 20)
  • Yi Seong-Gye’s eldest sons, Yi Bang-Woo and Yi Bang-Gwa, escaped the king’s camp and moved to his father. His 5th son Yi Bang-Won evacuated the general’s family to Hamju. (ep. 21)
  • In June, After the street battle in Gaegyung, the palace was taken by Yi Seong-Gye’s army. General Choi Young was arrested and sent into exile. (ep. 22)
  • Yi Seong-Gye and Jo Min-Soo became top 2 supreme power of the court.
  • King U led 80 armed eunuchs to kill the generals but his plan ended in failure. The king was deposed and confined in Ganghwa island.
  • Jo Min-Soo betrayed Yi Seong-Gye and joined forces with Yi Saek to enthrone King U’s 8-year-old son, King Chang. (ep. 22)
  • Jo Min-Soo tried to reinstate Yi In-Im to prime minister, but found out Yi In-Im was already dead while in exile. (ep. 23)
  • In July, Jo Joon submitted a petition for land reforms, and it became a big issue in the court. Jo Min-Soo objected to it. (ep. 23~24)
  • Jo Min-Soo was impeached by Jo Joon’s accusation of land plundering and corruption. (ep. 25~26 The bloody banquet)
  • In August, Jo Min-Soo was released from the exile on a special amnesty given on King Chang’s birthday.
  • In December, General Choi Young was executed.

I think it would be cute if, in season 3, Star and Marco, as a couple, wanted to make Jantom a thing.

[episode idea] Star tells Marco that “double dates” are kind of a big thing on Mewni and in royalty in general as it forges alliances between different royal families / kingdoms and so she thinks it would be fun to have one themselves on Earth.

None of their friends are dating though and so Star decides that it’s up to her to find the perfect “double match” for her and Marco.
