The Amircie Family:
They find their roots in the kingdom of Lipaupanga. A princess (term used loosely, daughter of a chief on the council of Lipaupanga) named Subira was sent to the capital of the Nyrisan Empire (Midevit) to represent the kingdom. She quickly made friends with the Iersi (pope like figure), who helped build up relations, and between the two women they tied the Kingdom of Lipaupanga and the Nyrisan Empire close together.
In 273 A.I., Subira established a bank under the blessing of the Iersi, and married her son to the Iersi’s daughter to further the bulding. So in 338, when the Nyrisan Empire officially crumbled, the Iersi took much of the lands, while Subira established a bank with her kingdom (and family’s) ridiculous wealth. Subira bankrolled many of the now city-states, and was given Amircie by the Iersi. Subira adopted the “di Amircie” title. The Amircie’s have ruled ever since.
Current Ruler: Ploratia Vsrei d’Amircie
Heir: Gieve Vsrei d’Amircie (tentative)
Heaven Is Infinite; the gods have lived in relative peace for the past seven thousand years since their creation. Their names, their faces, their very being has changed countless times. In the spring of 1654, a short time after the end of the First Anglo-Dutch War, the Goddess of Europe- Rebekkah- meets a young Dutch colonist named Ruben Aaldenberg. Though he was supposed to have died during the war, he- like the two current gods- became one of them. The orange eyes gave it away immediately.
Rebekka took him to Heaven, took him to Ahmet- God of The East. They befriended each other quickly, and Ahmet took him in as a sort of protege. Ruben took to Ahmet’s lessons, but there was something more to the young god that unsettled Rebekka.
As the years wore on, Ruben’s own independent experiments grew too wild, too chaotic, and cost too many human lives. Rebekka pleaded with Ahmet to remove him from Heaven, and Ahmet conceded, exiling him to the nation he’d claimed as home.
Now move to the current day.
The gods: Amar (Ahmet), Becca (Rebekka), Ruben Aaldenberg, Heinrich Meitger, and Micaela Elvia Salcedo Fuentes.
Ruben’s reach has spread, taking advantage of the further splits that the new gods have caused. Earth has made him stronger, more knowledgable, and he understands that the key to killing a god is to kill their people.
So Heaven’s War begins.
1.- Right back leg. During the Quiet Coup, Gisela got into a scrap with Birszi. They ended up fighting as animals, and Birszi got a hold of Gisela’s back leg and bit down hard. It’s mostly faded now, and is hard to see unless you’re looking for it.
2. Black line across neck. Miras kept her tied in their main courtyard, for the most part, and kept the leash painfully tight so she would choke if she tried to change back. The area got infected several times during the eight year period. Over the years, this has also faded, and just looks like a discolored line.
3- Red marks on her neck. The most noticeable of her scars, because of the messed up skin on the area. During the Quiet Coup, near the very beginning, Jarimal- the previous Knight of Dawn- got a hold of her when she started to chase after Peytra. His magic being fire, he burned her badly, and it almost seemed like she wouldn’t recover from that attack. Needless to say, she got the upperhand in the battle and caught the knight by surprise.
1- Right forearm. He was bit by a fairy when he was fourteen. This would be the same fairy he tore the wings off of.
2- Back. When he was seventeen, he got into a scrap with several of the squires in the barracks. The fight ended with broken legs and arms and scars galore, along with plenty of broken furniture. Andrius landed on a shattered mirror- and wasn’t able to get up due to the boy still fighting with him. Darius healed all the boys himself, but made them keep the scars they got as a reminder of what happens when a unit falls apart.
3- Chest. A tiny nick over his heart, received when he was six from his father. It was the first time his father caught him using death magic and, once Miras very graphically explained what happens to death mages, the last time.
