Image
Name
Ajax Alexander

Age
Twenty-Two

Appearance and Build
Ajax physique can be very intimidating thing to come face to face with. He keeps his dirty blonde hair cut short and has a manicured scruff. He has intensely captivating crystal blue eyes that he is said to have inherited from his father. Broad shoulders, massive biceps and a shredded 6-foot-5, 195-pound frame. His height helps spread out his weight. His strength gives him a rather filled out form, but he is not regarded as being overweight, just muscular. Between horse back riding, sword fighting and training with the gladiators of Salamis the half-god has the body of a god and strength to match. When it comes to his attire you are unlikely to see Ajax dressed in the luxury robes of royalty. He days are most spent training so when he is seen it is commonly clothed in only protective garments around his waist while having a mostly bare upper torso adorned with wrist-guards and belts to hold further weapons and returned to using a shield. Majestic. Every thing about him carries dignity and authority with it; his look is meant to strike, sometimes with terror, and sometimes with gratitude, but always with respect.

What/ Who they are?
He is the King of the Kingdom of Salamis. He like his cousins is known as and often called the half-god because of his godly parent. He is the son of Jupiter and Queen Alcmene. He is also known as the Champion of Salamis as he has remains undefeated in the gladiatorial games held in the kingdom.

Where they live?
Ajax calls the Kingdom of Tripartite his home but he lives in the city capital of Aianteio in the kingdom of Salamis.

Allies & Enemies
The Kingdom of Tripartite has just entered in an alliance with the South Atlantic and North Pacific kingdoms. They don't have any enemies at this time but only time well tell if it stays that way.

Personality

Ajax is a man who would prefer to lead on the battlefield instead of ruling from a throne. He is a born warrior, and most of his skills lie in the area of martial expertise. He isn't a very politically ambitious man, much to his mother's annoyance, and often turns down her frequent urgings that he should remove himself from the forefront of battle and settle into his throne. He has little interest in politics and court intrigue; by his own admission. Political maneuvering is just not his way, he sees himself foremost as a soldier who when confronted with a problem would rather take out his sword and cuts its head off to be done with it all together.

Ajax is a brave, strong and caring man, though at times he can be stubborn, prideful and assertive much like his father Jupiter. He has high levels of inattention, is highly distract-able, impulsive and restless, hyperactive or hypersensitive (ADHA). While somewhat arrogant, Ajax believes in working hard to earn titles and position. Ajax is a man who's respect is earned never given. He doesn't care about what you think your birthright entitles you to if you haven't earned it than you do not deserve it. It is as simple as that.

He's time spent training with the gladiators has given him a great deal of respect for them. It is because of them that he doesn't view people by their social stature but by who they are inside. To him a person is only deemed worthless when they themselves have proven that they have no worth.

Ajax' religious beliefs are a matter of debate. At certain times he seems to deny the existence of any gods, although at other times Ajax seems to acknowledge them as presently involved in his life. He was the last of the four half-gods to actually believe in and acknowledge was the son of his godly parent. It wasn't until Ajax finally accepted who he was that he was able to untap his true potential and really become the son of Jupiter. While he now accepts who he is the fact that the Gods do not have contact with their mortal children makes Ajax resent his father. However, in times when Ajax has been in need of and asked for Jupiter's help has father has never let him down.

He has a strong sense of honor and justice as shown by his great compassion. He greatly cares for his friends and family willing to risk his life to protect or help them. He loves to laugh and make jokes, and would try to lighten up tense situations with his sense of humor. Unlike some of his family members, he never hesitates to speak his mind, which when paired with his rather sword first words later makes him a loose cannon.

During his free time, he likes to play competitive sports and games, especially anything that involves a physical challenge. He is well known to physical participate in the gladiatorial games of the city, much again to his mother's disapproval. His keen intellect and deadly skill combine to make him a true master of war. Despite his somewhat reckless nature, Ajax is a born leader and a great one at that. He has a love for his family, his friends, his People and his Kingdom that is undeniable. Ajax maybe a half-god but at the end of the day he sees himself as nothing more than just a man. He is a man before he is anything else and being but a man he is not perfect. He has many flaws as he is somewhat arrogant and his temper and caring tongue is not one that a King should probably have. However, it is part of what makes him human and despite his flaws he is a good man and a great king.

Skills and Abilities


Combat Prowess

Before his gladiatorial training, Ajax was already an adept warrior, being able to utilize sword and shield with skill as well as having impeccable aim in throwing a spear. His own fighting abilities allowed him to take on four gladiators at one time, even before his own training as one. Following his gladiatorial training, Ajax greatly develops his fighting abilities and eventually becomes the true Champion of Salamis. Ajax is skilled in multiple styles of combat and in use of a cross-section of weapons. Being able to fight with a sword and shield, single-sword, dual-swords and use of the spear, both as a weapon and projectile. He has also used an axe, cestus, hammer, aquila and is extremely proficient in unarmed combat.

Ajax "signature techniques" are;

• Skillfully throwing his sword at his opponent, impaling them. He was told by his instructor that throwing his sword in the arena is equal to death, so he generally throws his sword only when fighting as a Dimachaerus, leaving him with his other weapon to protect himself.

• Jumping towards the opponent (generally he jumps off something) and trying to stab them. He doesn't do this move to often as it is a difficult technique to use. In the times that he has done it thought it has proven to be successful.

Tactical Ability

Altogether, Ajax is a force to be reckoned with in both the arena and on the battlefield. His keen intellect and deadly skill combine to make him a true master of war. He is a skilled strategist and tactician and has knowledge of the strategies used across the lands. These traits, coupled with his bold, proficient tactics have provided invaluable leadership to the kingdom's army, giving them an unblemished record in battle.

Half-god Abilities

Demigods are relatively stronger, more agile, and more durable than regular mortals, and have more resistance to diseases. Ajax being the son of Zeus has a god-like strength that out ranks his half-god cousins. Heightened senses and natural aptitude for battle. (Due to his ADHD) He has greater battlefield reflexes and the ability to see where their opponents will strike due to the tensing of their muscles. Being the son of Jupiter; Ajax holds divine authority over the creatures of the sky as well as weather, having powers that are greater than the children of nearly every other god. Ajax has the power of Aerokinesis, Atmokinesis and Electrokinesis.

Ajax has been given many gifts by his father. His sword also called The Lightning Sword was gifted to him by his father Jupiter. The Lightning Sword is the divine weapon of Ajax, he uses it to channel His lightning powers. The sword's compacted form is a small cylinder/baton which only at the touch of Ajax will glow and transform into its true sword form. It will revert into its dormant form unless he decides for it to stay in full form.


Ajax was also gifted by Zeus with the Pegasus, a beast no man has ever rode before. He was giving to him after Ajax and his half-god cousins killed the tyrant that once ruled what is now known as the Kingdom of Tripartite. He and his Pegasus have formed a strong bond and Ajax is the only person Pegasus will let mount him. Ajax's winged stallion acts as his noble steed in battle. The stallion is far from tamed and has proven to be unbreakable but it is also loyal and bravely fearless.

So begins...

Amelia stood out on her balcony looking down at all the festivities taking place below her. If there was one thing King Robert knew how to do it was throw a grand party. Since day one of the tourney there had been feasts and drinks and good times all around but on this final day King Robert had truly out done himself. As the king had predicted his nephew had been crowned victory of the jousting competition, which had giving Orys reputation most likely came as a surprise to none. Even though he had fallen Amelia was immensely proved on her old knight for Ser Jorah had fought with everything he had and in doing so honor himself, his queen and his kingdom.

The shock of the evening had come in Robert's speech. What she had thought was going to be a short speech of congratulations and pride had been that and so much more. She had known something big was coming the king spoke of all of Orys great feats and victories but even she hadn't anticipated what Robert had up his sleeve. The gods knew the queen surely didn't see it coming. Robert had made Orys his successor and now the next king to rule over the seven kingdoms. She wondered how Orys felt about that as she retreated back into her room.

Her room was far from empty as like the king she was currently hosting many guests. She had told the princess of the South Atlantic kingdom that she would consider her offer to forged an alliances between their kingdoms and that she had. Amelia had held many meetings with both of her advisors Ser Jorah and Ser Barristan in days past. While neither knight had at first thought the alliance to be a grand idea in the beginning Amelia had fought them both on the matter. She felt that Princess Kenna was right about her needing to gain allies outside of the South Pacific and more importantly she genuinely liked Kenna and saw a fire in the girl that reminded her of herself.

Her fellow knights had not gotten on board until after the half-gods of the Kingdom of Tripartite had agreed to ally themselves with the South Atlantic Kingdom. In joining in an alliance with the South Atlantic Kingdom she also allied herself with the Kingdom of Tripartite. Which was enough for both Jorah and Barristan to get on board. She wasn't sure if this would lead to problems down the line but that wasn't her primary concern at the moment. "Were missing the celebration. Let us adjourn for now. We can tighten up all matters when we dock in the South Atlantic."

With the tourney now at an end all foreign guest would be returning to their homelands. Instead of returning home immediately Amelia and her men would be taking a detour to the South Atlantic. There all things between the three kingdoms would be finalized and than Amelia would return home. "Well let us go now before we are seen as rude guests." Ushering out the princess, her lady-in-waiting and the four half-gods the Silver Queen was ready to partake in the festivities.

The week spent in the South Pacific kingdom had proven to be fruitful for both herself and her kingdom. She had come to Robert's tourney in hopes of forging new alliances and that was exactly what she had done. While she had hoped Queen Amelia would accept her offer she had been doubtful due to the queen's ties to the king. She was fearful that the king's alliance with the drake king would hinder any chance of her and the Silver Queen's kingdoms becoming allies. This was why when the royal cousins of the Kingdom of Tripartite arrived during day two of Robert's tourney she and Davina had convinced them to support her kingdom. It was not long after the half-gods agreed that Amelia herself had come around.

It was now the final day of the tourney and the victor had been crowned. Surprisingly Orys had not only won the title of victor of his uncle's tourney games but he was also now the newly crowned prince of the South Pacific kingdom. Kenna along with Davina, Ajax, Dalila, Jasunr, Mira and Amelia sat in Amelia's room. After the tourney had ended the the festivities began the seven newly-made friends and future had retreated to Amelia's to talk of things to come. Amelia clearly was bored of talk and wished to rejoin the rest of population. "Were missing the celebration. Let us adjourn for now. We can tighten up all matters when we dock in the South Atlantic." Kenna nodded in agreement as she too wished to join in on the festivities. She was in a joyful mood and had much to celebrate as everything was currently coming together for the young princess. "Well let us go now before we are seen as rude guests." Both Kenna and Davina laughed as Amelia began ushering everyone out of her room.

The sun was setting and the atmosphere surrounding the festival was one up life and happiest. Entering one of the many set up tents with her lady-in-waiting on her arm Kenna mixed and mingle with nobles from all across the lands. There were many servants walking about with trays of drink and foods a plenty. Kenna wasn't a big drinker but despite her small frame she quite the hardy appetite. The two girls seperated after some time together as Davina mingled and Kenna went to indulge herself in the delectable foods set about.

Blending into the crowd Davina conversed with many fine nobleman while keeping her eyes on the Drake King who sat a mere few feet away. The recent good fortune of gaining not one but two new allies for the kingdom filled Kenna with bliss. She was so indulged in her blissfulness that she had begun to lower her guard in favor of enjoying the king's splendid party. While Davina too was also happy she had not forgotten where they were and although they were not technically in enemy territory their enemy was among them.

Standing in a small circle of three Davina stood with Sansa Stark of Winterfell and Margaery Tyrell of Highgarden. The ladies spoke of Robert's shocking reveal, what a grand tourney it had been and how they were saddened by it's end. Davina might have been there in body but her mind and focus was still on the King Moloch. She had never once spoken a word to the man and yet she still held a profound dislike for the man. She noticed the way he eyed not only her queen but the Dragon Queen as well.

The Drake King was known for many things including his intellect. It wouldn't surprise her one bit if he was suspicious of Kenna's motives here in Robert's kingdom. In fact if he wasn't at least a little skeptical that would be surprising. They way that he eyed the two woman across the room made Davina sure he's mind was at work trying to figure out what exactly was going on. "Excuse me for a moment. I must speak with my queen."

Excusing herself Davina maneuvered her way through the crowd until she reached Kenna who busily at work devouring the food in front of her. I think the Drake King in speculating." She spoke a hushed whisper that only her queen's ears could hear, "Should we be concerned if he is?" Kenna looked past her lady at Moloch who sat with the Orys and appeared to also be talking in hushed voices. What does he say?"

Davina quieted the voices around her and listened on the Moloch and Orys's conversation. She hadn't picked up on all of what Moloch had said but she caught him asking, "What if Queen Amelia rode out against me at Princess Kenna of the South Atlantic Kingdom? Would you join me? Her? Or will you find a way to dissuade her? " He was definitely speculating. "He asks what the future king would do if the Dragon Queen was to side with us against him. Who'd side would he take up arms against." Kenna contained her composure on the surface but Davina could her the young princess's heart beat quicken in pace. She was worried. "And what does he say?"

Davina listened in closer tuning out the sound of the music, voices and everything else that was distracting. "He wouldn't go against either of them. As for us and any others he would fight with the Drake King against all." Kenna wasn't exactly sure if that was suppose to be good news or bad. "Meaning?" Davina gave Kenna a reassuring smile. "As long as we have Queen Amelia on our side I don't think we have anything to fear from the South Pacific. Orys says he would not go against her and I believe his uncle would feel the same. If Amelia stood with us in war this kingdom would not stand in our way."

Kenna breathed a sigh of relief. "Thank the gods!" Everything was slowly falling into place. She hadn't brought up her plans of war when discussing the alliances with either Amelia or the ruling cousins but they had to know going into this that they was a possibility. The history between the South Atlantic and Drake was well known throughout the lands and sooner or later either the kingdom or city would fall. With Drake standing alone and the South Atlantic allied with two other powerful kingdoms the odds appeared to be in her favor. However, she wasn't going to get ahead of herself. She wouldn't make the same mistake her father had. If she decided to go to war the the city of Drake she would not fail. She would make sure that Drake City fail never to rise again.

The ruling monarchy of the kingdom of Tripartite had arrived on day two of Robert's tourney. Ajax had probably been the most upset by there fashionable late arrival as it kept him from participating in the jousting segment of the tourney that he was so confident he'd be the victor of. While his cousins ignore him they knew that he was probably right but whatever the case the tourney was over and Orys stood the victor of his uncle's tourney. Despite they're none involvement in the games the tourney had been far from uneventful for them. The shocking revelation made by the king had been surprising to all especially his newly announced heir and scorned wife.

While the tourney itself had been thrilling and greatly entertaining the best part of the whole event had been the new friendships formed and alliances to come. It was Jasunr who had been approached by the beautiful Princess of the South Atlantic with the idea of forming ties between their kingdoms. Jasunr was not ignorant to the turmoil between the kingdom of the South Atlantic and the city of Drake. Nor were his cousins to which each had reacted differently when he brought up the case of Kenna's plight to them. Dalila concerned and worried about the possibility of war while Ajax seemed delighted by the prospect of war. His sister was a different case as she was indifferent to the idea of war.

There had been hours of discussion between the four but in the end they had decided to side with the young princess and whatever followed that choice they would deal with when the time came. So far the repercussions of their unanimous decision had been good as they not only gained the support of one kingdom but two. The Mother of Dragons Amelia Stormborn had like them been approached by princess Kenna and had agreed to not only ally herself with the South Atlantic Kingdom but the Kingdom of Tripartite as well.

Now standing amongst other nobles and royals of the different lands in one of the many tents set up a mere few feet from where the jousting competition had been held. Mira stood with Queen Amelia as they chatted and giggled amongst themselves. Dalila had captured the attention of several men and was being her usual gracious and charming self. The Kings of Tripartite had been enjoying themselves with drink and food when the noticed princess Kenna and her lady Davina huddled together talking in hushed whispers. Now was not the time for such things. Now was the time to celebrate and enjoy the festivities that Robert granted his guests on the last night of the tourney. Being the chivalrous men that they were they approached the two fair ladies and gave a courteous bow as Ajax extend a hand to Kenna and Jasunr to Davina. "Would you two ladies care to dance?" Ajax asked with that charming grin of his.

Western Desert
Caliphate of Andalusia


The Caliphs soldiers approached in the darkness, watching for any signs of treachery. As they drew closer the horses of the Drake men shied away from the camels, a common occurrence for camels are not only much larger than a horse but their smell is very foreign as well. Saheeb had drawn a small golden figurine from under his robes and now, as they halted a dozen paces from the Drake Knights he murmured several words to the figurine and tossed it to the sand.

In an instant the golden figure had seemingly melted into the sand and a woman’s figure rose, a sandy shape that walked forward several paces and then bowed most correctly to Prince Kallias. Then it spoke flawlessly in the Common tongue.

“Prince Kallias. You are most welcome to the Caliphate of Andalusia. The Caliph himself is aware of your coming and has asked me to direct you to Al Qasr.” The sand woman’s face was finely formed and almost beautiful in the moonlight that now washed across her. “These soldiers will provide you an escort to the Western Gateway where I will greet you personally. Until then my lord.”

The figure offered another bow and in an instant vanished into the sand again as if it had never been.


Sevilla
Caliphate of Andalusia


The knock on the towers lower door came as the sun was dipping on the horizon. The Caliph sighed and stretched his back as he listened to the exchange between the serving boy and the bodyguard. Farid was prized for his ability to do his duties quietly and without comment, a skill the Caliph prized in any servant but few could accomplish so well.

The General didn’t even glance up from where he was writing as the serving boy and a bodyguard appeared on the tower roof. The Caliph noted the look of amazement on the boys face and smiled to himself, he doubted the boy had ever been to the top of the Caliphs Tower before, the view was an incredible one.

A pot of steaming mint green tea was placed with two cups, then the boy bowed and backed away without a word, vanishing back into the tower with the bodyguard. Once the door had closed again the Caliph stood, stepping to the edge of the tower rampart and looking down over the city far below.

“We have built some amazing wonders in this desert land.” He said aloud and heard the General stand and made room for the other man to join him.

“Yes we have lord. It is no wonder they call this land the Jewel of the South.”

They were silent again until a sudden swirl of air made them both turn and a female shape formed itself before them. It bowed low to the Caliph who nodded in return.

“My lord Caliph, a Prince of the Drake Kingdom has crossed into our lands under the guidance of an Andalusian. One of our patrols has intercepted him. I welcomed him in your name and directed him to Al Qasr to await you orders.”

“Thank you Priestess. Please inform your sisters there that I will require a portal for myself by this evening. My personal regiment is also to transport to the city. We must greet this Drake Princling in the style I am sure he expects.”

“My lord.” The figure bowed again and vanished into nothing.

“A Prince of the Drake Kingdom…” The Caliph mused as he looked Westwards. “I wonder what mischief is brewing in the west to bring a man like this to our land.”


The South Pacific Kingdom

A woman moved through the crowd, a smile on her face that would have charmed the birds from the trees. She was shorter then the Western women by several inches but her beauty was undeniable. An hour glass figure, long black hair that fell to her waist in long curls, and slightly tanned skin that highlighted startlingly blue eyes.

She offered smiles to all and exchanged words with any who approached her. She bore no marks of a nation though it would be plain she was not a local, perhaps a citizen of the Triphate.

There was nothing sinister in her actions for all she did was listen, quietly marking everything she heard and saw. The alliances that formed, the word play between nobles, the glances and their implied meanings, all of it.

The Caliph had suspected that war might be in the offing and she was certain now that he had been right and that the lines were being drawn in the sand, and sides chosen. She knew well that the Caliph would not commit his own armies to any “White War” as he called them, but the Caliphate would eventually be affected one war or another.
