              THE POWERS
                    ▌Dryad ▬▬ a simple, well worn staff given to him by his mother.
                    ▌Fighting Style ▬▬ defensive. isador is skilled in stave combat, but he is no warrior. he depends heavily on his slick mouth and silver tongue to get him out of problems. however, he is an apt magic wielder, preferring the earth element amongst all others.

                    ▌Clay Guardian ▬▬ Fortifies armor and defense.
                    ▌Copper Flesh ▬▬ Hardens skin, preventing piercing attacks from doing harm.
                    ▌Canopy Defense ▬▬ Protects user from magics for a brief time
                    ▌Earthquake ▬▬ Causes the ground to shake violently for a brief time, extremely taxing and only used as a last resort.

                    ▌Persuasion ▬▬ isador has an uncanny ability to rally others to his beliefs. he's suave, intelligent and people flock to him because of it.
                    ▌Deception ▬▬ he is also a superb liar. because of his ability to persuade, people trust him. he can weave intricate lies with ease and doesn't think twice about it.
                    ▌Painting ▬▬ isador's most innocent skill is his artistic ability. he has an eye for soft lines and delicate detail work and is often found in remote parts of the palace, or at the beach painting the horizon or some other subject.

              THE PERSONAL
                    ▌Graceful ▬▬ everything isador does is done with perfect poise elegance. a trait he received from his mother, isador is soft spoken and eloquent. his grace helps hide the serpent that lies beneath the surface.
                    ▌Charismatic ▬▬ like his brother, isador has a plethora of charisma. he can charm people into just about anything, and often used this tactic as a child in getting what he wanted from the palace staff.
                    ▌Wicked ▬▬ lying shallowly underneath his pleasant, poised facade is a toxic, and dangerous individual. capable of dismantling his opponents using his sharp tongue, isador leaves little to be desired when his ire is provoked.
                    ▌Narcissistic ▬▬ the young prince is incredible vain. he won't be seen in public unless every strand of hair is perfectly in place. his clothing, his speech, everything is as perfect as he views himself. he's in love with beautiful things as much as he is himself.

                    ▌History ▬▬ - isador was a happy, healthy child. his parents doted on him as much as they did atreus, making sure he never felt left out. his brother often brought him along any place he went, despite his friend's protests.

                    - as little boys the brothers were inseparable. it was obvious that atreus received a different type of attention from his brother, but as children, he didn't mind. he was in awe that his own brother would one day be king.

                    - however, as they grew older, isador started to grow a bit of resentment for atreus. their mother spent an awful amount of time fawning over him in an attempt to find a suitable bride. while isador wasn't exactly jealous, he knew that the time he'd have with atreus was soon coming to an end.

                    - it was around this time that he noticed that atreus ideals and ways of going about things were...not as succinct as they should of been. yes, their father was a kind, gentle ruler and the people loved him. but with the flames of war lapping at their heels, they needed a more firm hand.

                    - when the war started, things changed forever. atreus proved fearsome in battle and in leadership, but isador felt as if the war dragged on too long. they were being too cautious. they had the numbers, soldiers knew what they signed up for. they were expendable. unfortunately, isador was a tad too young to off to war.

                    - once the war was finally won, atreus and his father returned home. by this time, isador was bitter. he had potential brides lined up, there was a parade in his honor -- all things isador felt as if he didn't deserve. being a kind leader was one thing, but one that was too afraid to sacrifice lives for the greater good? pathetic.

                    - years passed and his own mother died in childbirth. distraught, isador for a time sought to rekindle his relationship he had with atreus. it would not work. atreus was indifferent to it all. he was sad, but not as sad as he should have been -- all these half feelings were starting to wear isador down as he felt that atreus was a walking contradiction something he couldn't stand to look at after awhile.

                    - a mere year or so later, isador had totally grown tired of his brother. he wanted nothing but to take ismir by the reins and make it into the empire its people deserve. however, in order to do that, his father and atreus both must die. this is where his grand plan begins.

                    - when he's finished, his father is dead and atreus is on the run. isador is crowned king and the people rejoice. he publicly sends a team of specialists to hunt his brother down in order to bring justice to the dead king. the people rally in the streets, praising isador; something he never knew he wanted.

              PLOT WISHLIST
                    ▌▬▬ - possible redemption?
                    - definitely a confrontation with atreus
                    - perhaps his minions have a change of heart and turn on him?

So begins...
