About the Empire of Lancaster

The Empire of Lancaster is an Empire established 600years ago, and named after the first king Lancaster the First. (Henry de Lancaster) The precursor of the 8th king and the First Emperor, the Aaron de Lancaster, who unified the entire continent of Este. Before they were unified, there was many ethnic groups existed in this continent, however, they are now all live as the Lancasterians and their loyal peoples of Emperor. Empire left the former kingdoms' Capital cities standing, in order to maintain the public order.


Notable NPCs
s
Seres de Lancaster:
Age: 36
height: 167cm
14th Empress of the Empire of Lancaster. Concubine of the 13th Emperor: William de Lancaster.
Because Prince was too young, she has claimed the throne as Empress Regent, but now, she is the Empress. She is very beautiful despite her age, but she is cruel, and extravagant. (Think of Marie-Antoinette of France). Because Prince Edward is not her son, she loathes him to the core.
She is paranoid of possible rebellions and thus has used forced to keep the population of the Empire in order, resulting with the ‘replacement’ of several lords that were highly respected by the people. She also fears that the loyalty of the ordinary army itself would change and fired several high ranked generals, leaving several regiments to be leaderless and slowly scatters with time (some going home, others forming new ‘Irregular’ regiments).


e
Edward de Lancaster
Age: 20
height: 165cm
Prince and true heir of the William de Lancaster. Son of Charlotte de Lancaster the Wife of William.
He leads his secret organization call Redeemer in order to reclaim his rightful throne.
Young of age, he is highly intelligent, due to the large resources he can use. He has the loyalty of the general ‘minor’ nobles and ‘Irregular’ regiments.

n
Isaac de Campbell (Ludwig Schwarzhelm?)
Age: 32 (I’ll suppose he is really experienced then)
height: 183cm

(Just like Cesare Borgia). However he is not satisfied with the Empress reign, but for his own safety and power, he obeys the Empress without a question. So he is seemingly loyal, but no one knows what he is really thinking. He is very experienced fighter, and winner of last Imperial fencing classics too. He and Gabriel have known each other since they were boy, so does the Rachel. He met Oscar when he entered the Order, and they competed for the seat of Grandmaster, and he won.

r
Gabriel von Rosencroitz
Age: 28
height: 180cm
Marquis of Cordelia, Seneschals, the Knights of Retribution's sector-chief. Prideful, but slightly simple-headed in some aspect. He is bit impulsive compare to other Seneschals, but as a sector-chief, he is capable of controlling his own emotion, and think logically. But when somebody picks on his bone, he will start punching and kicking. Well it is true that he acts somewhat immature compare to his age, and especially when he is in front of Cesare, he acts like 10years old kid. Acting like as if he is Cesare's younger brother. He often laugh at set pranks time to time, but at the public he is very ridged....well at least he tries to. He think he is taking care of Rachel, cuz he is the older brother of Rachal, but It is the Rachel who takes care of him....sadly.

q

At least she behaves like a proper lady....She is the one who takes care of Gabriel. She is gentle and well mannered, but she is bit sarcastic and turn cold shoulders to people times to time. Really hard to be friendly but when you get to know her better she will be quite personal.

y
Oscar van Kessel
Age: 30
height: 185cm
Marquis of Pyrence, Seneschals, the Knights of Purification's sector-chief. among the order, he is the most cunning and cruel bastard of all.

“Oh Grandmaster? Why the hell did you promoted that buffoon(Gabriel) as a Seneschals?”
That is what he always complain. His fencing skill is almost compare to the Grandmaster Cesare.

a

What's Outside the Continent?

The Orleans Kingdom (France)
Right across the southern ocean, there is another continent known as Terra-Grande. The Orleans Kingdom is only known Kingdom to people of Este. Major ethnic groups are people known as the Merovingian. This is their Kingdom, so far known to be the strongest in the Terra-Grande. Lancaster and Orleans were at war during the last century, and now it is settled as draw. Since then, Orleans didn't attacked Lancaster, not because they are forgiver, but because they are in war with another kingdom they are bordered to. Which mean, Lancaster doesn't really~ have to worry about the enemy.

The Variangia Magna (Scandinavia)
The Greater Continent where people believe the Variangian came from. It is really far from Este, (Estimated 800km away from Este). This land is dead frozen. Summer's short, Winter's long. Blizzard is horribly strong and often. Probably only Variangians are capable of living in this dreaded land.
