He was raised as a trilingual as he is able to speak German,Japanese and Spanish so he is able to get across the language barrier,currently he is learning to speak French and Mandarin for the sake of the family.

Fears
- Rejection

-Broken promises



Secrets:
+ Before he came into the royal court, before he became a suitor to the princess he was in love with a girl of a lower status and his regret was that he couldn't say goodbye to her before he left to go to the Court.
+ When he was young he was subjected to entertain the people who came to his grandfathers house...let's just say its a past worth forgetting.
+ With his network within the Capitol and other sectors he has agents keeping tabs of those in his lists so that he can 'coincidently' bump into them. This is easier to look for them and find out what they like or not so that he can enter their good graces.

The Smythe Family
His agents whom he accumulated over the years
Enemies:
"I believe that I have enemies and I would be surprised if I did not, however they haven't made their presence known"

Love Interest:
[center] "At the past I had but now because of grandfather's consistent badgering I must fight for the princess's hand with the other suitors"






Personality:
The easiest way to describe his personality would be of the physical appearance of the Roman god Janus. A two faced person.

He is a benevolent, chivalrous man who is kind and forgiving to others. He treats women with respect and courtesy as he is influenced by his mother from a very young age. His loyalty knows no bounds, is a very traditional person so he can be a bit old fashioned at times, he respects those who are worthy his respect and he sometimes share his knowledge with those he respects. Laughs easily,sociable and is intuitive to others.

In truth he is a self-proclaimed drink fiend who is sarcastic about society.He also has an insatiable sweet tooth. He has a near-perfect memory, but often enjoys messing around with the other people by creating nicknames for them; he also selectively forgets things he considers unimportant. A devils advocate and is a very careful man and generally make things up as he goes along but he can picture the big picture. He also doesn't forget his grudges.

In summary he is two-faced, sociable, mischievous, mysterious and traditional

History
He has bad memories...
the old people touching him
seeing his father with another woman
his grandfather putting down his dog

He has good ones...
his mother and sister's laughter
the holidays where they would go to disney land
the feeling of snow when he first saw them.

He left Historia when he was 12 years old to go to England and study at Eton to further his studies and during his stay there he received news that mother left and father remarried.
Then he went abroad when he finished school so that he would know the way of the world and during his time he was able to visit exotic and exciting places which he could only read in books but now he was able to see them. He made new friends, forged adventures and picked up tricks from the wise. When he turned 21 reality struck him in the face as he remembered his duties as a Smythe so using only his connections he set up a business purely made from his abilities but his grandfather took all of his hard work to the Xavier's older brother and sent back to Historia to become the princess's suitor.

Anything Else:
Believe it or not he loves Historia and doesn't want to harm it in any way if he can.

So begins...

The Arrival of the Suitors

A women stood before the suitors, who had just arrived at the castle, and the cousin of the prince and pincess, who also just arrived,"Before we begin I thought I'd start with a quick tour of the castle, oh my where are my manners I am Lady Tavern. I am in charge of assuring the suitors are comfortable and in order. First here is where the suitors and the prince and princess eat everyday. It's the white eating room.Now this is the one and only time you will be allowed in the royal wing without an invitation. Next we will go to the left side of the wing, which is for the prince and princess and their guest. Here are their private sitting room",She spun around and clasped her hands. "Now for a real treat you get to see the prince and princess's rooms." She opened one door,[/i] "Here is the Prince's." [/i]Then she bought then down the hall and took a right at the end of the hall sat a door, square in the middle of the small wall. She opened the door revealing a room completely of windows aside from the wall with the door. "This is the Princess's." 

She shoo'd them out before taking them out of the wing across the bridge and back to their wing. Where they learned they all have the same room the furniture just different  decor, including the things they brought from home. Leaving the suitors to their rooms which the staff was frantically unpacking things to she brought the cousin of the prince and princess to his room. She then went to the cousins room to check in on her. Though she had already been living there fo two yeas so she already knew the rules and such. She was also the only person allowed in the royal wing without any invitation. The lady's in waiting had presumably already settled in their rooms so she wasn't too worried for them.


three months later
June 21, The morning before the Mid Summers dream event and gala 
The mid summers dream ball is the event and gala celebrating summer, visitors, along with the rich and famous in the country all come. I's a great way to raise funds fo the queens charities as well. The Event includes polo, horse competitions and other outdoor activities during the day. And at night they have a gala. This is a great way for the people to meet the potential spouses of the prince and princess and deem their support.


The Servants and help are buzzing through the castle preparing for the ball. The Lady's in waiting are preparing for the princess. Waking her and generally trying to get her ready. The other residents of the castle are currently preparing themselves as well. It's a sunny crisp day. There are white tents set up outside with decedent foods being prepared for them The polo players are on the field practicing. The guest have been instructed to wear formal white or pastel clothes. Women are to wear gowns, dresses, or formal pantsuits(Remember this is outside so these are not wedding gowns, or homecoming dresses they are light and airy).Men are to wear crisp suits.

The sounds of the upcoming gala distracted Xavier as he was busy doing his daily routine which consisted of sleeping then breakfast then reading and finally working out which is what he is currently doing. He dropped the weights on the ground and headed over to the window, he opened an inch of the curtain to peek through and saw that everything was nearly prepared and what was left was the guests.
He decided to dress up now and so he went for a quick shower,dried himself and put on a casual white tuxedo. It was just a simple white blazer with a plain sky blue shirt,no tie, and white pants, they were of course all designer brand. Then just when he was about to finish tying the shoe laces of his leather brown shoes his phone buzzed indicating he received a text from someone, he finished tying his shoes and picked up the phone to see the text. http://www.ioffer.com/i/2013-hot-men-s-the-stylish-slim-white-suits-530483958

Xavier smirked as he quickly replied and slipped it into his pocket. It was from one of his agents who got him what he wanted to know about tonight's event. He then faced the vanity mirror to do his hair and saw that not many needs to be done to it as he prefers the 'just-got-of-bed-look' and felt sorry for the girls out there who had to primp themselves up. However just to be sure, he applied a quick dab of gel into it and some cologne. Finally he was prepared and ready to go and so he excited his bedroom and walked down the hallway. As he was walking down he heard voices coming from the suitor's room and decided to follow it. He discovered Katherine and Anais, if he remembers correctly, having a conversation and so being the polite person he is he decided to go and greet them.
"Hello ladies" he said with a smile as he walked up towards them ,hands in his pocket, "Excited for the upcoming gala? and you both look lovely in those dresses". He stopped before them waiting to hear their replies and at the same time wondering when will the guests arrive.

Rosalinda shook her head as her her old friend breezed into her room."What's up? Shouldn't you be down at the party... you know-- mingling with the people... one of which you have to marry?" she pointed at her before mentioning how attractive her suitors were. "Come on. There are some of those suitors who I wouldn't mind spending my life with. Mind if I have your leftovers? I don't mind picking up after you. Or, you know, we could share?" she offered before giggling and setting the tube back on the vanity. Rose sighed "Yeah they're hot," She said thinking about them " But I wanna fall in love," She clutched her friends hand to her heart "Like a fairytale."

Just as she let go and spun to her full size mirror Alex walked in "Hello Evette, fancy seeing you here. Knowing you that's what you're wearing at the gala?" Rose rolled her eyes as she tutted  "Can't you just wear a dress at least. It's an important event for the family you know"

Rose put her hand on her hip, knowing she was next. "I like the dress but isnt that showing too much of your assests dear? Wear a cardigan or a shawl. It will get cold tonight or are you just counting on the suitor's body heat to keep you warm?" Rose blushed realizing she probably heard their conversation. Rose threw her arm around Alex, "Well I can fix both of those problems. One we all are wearing different dresses to the gala, I already have my gown and one for you," Then she walked into her closet and pulled out three wrapped gift boxes "And here's a solution to Evette's outfit " She walked over to her bed and pulled out the dress, heels, and clutch outfitfrom the boxes "Tada!" She squealed. She then walked back into her closet and grabbed a cropped jacket that was grey, " Ok now I'm going to take your advice and greet people. Meet us outside in that dress. " She then pressed a button and two women walked in. "Curl her hair and do it in an amazing style." She said before turning on her heels and heading out the door, "C'mon Alex lets find me a man," She said as she strut out the door, returned, did a saucy pose, and strutted down the hallway. 

On her way out she spotted Xavier, Katherine, and Anais. "You guys look amazing," she said as she walked up to them. "Headed to the party?" She asked though she was squirming, she could Alex's disapproving glance at her cleavage so she pulled her hair to the front, making it spill down her chest. "Have any of you seen my brother or father, they always show up later. And I refuse to go down there without a buffer for my mothers wrath. " She clasped her hands and gasped " Xavier she adores the thought of us being wed and won't turn into a hellish beast around you. Care to join me?" She asked but before he could answer she steered him toward the stairs. 

 
As they walked outside she could feel the gazes and murmuring around them, "Ignore that," She mumbled plastering on a smile "They're trying to see if you've won my favor." She waved halfheartedly at some guest before spotting a curly headed girl sneaking treats, "Sweet Pea!" She exclaimed picking the girl up. "Xavier you know my half sister?" She asked pecking a kiss on the girls cheek leaving a faint red mark. The girl rubbed her cheek and groaned "Rose, stop it!". She turned to Xavier then back to rose "Are you gonna marry this one?" The girl asked "Dunno' yet." Rose shrugged.

Alex somewhat smiled approvingly as she saw the dress that the princess has chosen for her friend. It was white and a matching pair with Rosalinda's, to her this signified their friendship although Evette was already well known through out the castle grounds. As the princess was busy showing Evette's outfit one by one she arranged them on the sofa and took the princess's clutch bag for some emergency circumstances such as powdering up the nose or reapplication of the lipstick. As the princess did her antics she chuckled at it as this was not princess's would normally do however it was in Rosalinda's character so she let it past.

As they were walking down the hallway she noticed the other suitors at the same time Rosalinda did and so she greeted them along with the princess. She liked their attire and thought that they were properly dressed for this event then she glanced disapprovingly at the revealing amount of chest the princess was showing as she was well aware that Xavier,one of the princess's suitors, was there and was delighted that the princess covered it with her hair.

Soon they were outside of the castle and onto the gala grounds, she decided to leave them alone as the suitor probably needed the time with Rosalinda. She decided to follow them a few feet away although she couldn't hear what they are saying she could easily see what was happing. Before she left them she subtly leaned towards Xavier's ear to warn him to act civilised and be extra gentlemanly towards the princess.
As she was enjoying a small glass of champagne and doing small talk with important guests inquiring about this whole affair she could see the half-sister of the princess hang around the duo, she sighed at the idea but decided that she should just watch from afar but be always near enough to sense if danger was there. After all this is the prince and princess's big night with their suitors, why not let them have their fun.

"Good morning to you as well Anais. You look very nice today Anais and I agree it will be much more exciting than what's transpired in the last three months though I have to admit I'm a bit nervous." Anais smiled sympathetically at Katherine and touched the girl's shoulder gently.

"Oh, sweetie," she cooed. "All you've gotta do is smile and look pretty. You already got the pretty part down, so just smile. You'll charm all of their socks off." Anais winked at Katherine for good measure before giggling. She knew there was so much more that they would have to do for today, but freaking some poor girl out was not going to make it end well. Besides, if Katherine went down into the event with nerves, that would be the beginning of the drama right there. Just as she was about to say something else to comfort the girl before her, Anais heard a voice over her shoulder and glanced to see Xavier Smith coming from his room. Oh damn... Anais almost forgot; some of these suitors were gorgeous.

Hello ladies! Excited for the upcoming gala? And you both look lovely in those dresses." Anais smiled at him charmingly.

"Good morning, handsome. Getting over some morning jitters, but thanks for the compliment." Anais replied smoothly just as the princess and a few other familiar faces came downstairs. Anais curtsied deeply, smiling at the beautiful princess before rising as the young woman spoke. Rosalinda was asking about the King, whom Anais was not that familiar with, and of Richard. Inwardly, Anais seethed but smiled cordially to Her Highness. "If I see him,Your Highness, I will tell him that you're searching for him." When Rosalinda dragged Xavier away with her after having a mini mental breakdown over her mother, Anais pulled out her phone and sent a quick text to Richard. WHERE THE HELL R U? UR SISTER IS LOOKIN 4 U! -- Anais

Richard was jogging lightly down the steps and he paused, chuckling at Anais's irritation with him. Just for that, he was definitely going to mess with her first for the day before he went to the rest of the suitors. But first thing's first: save his little sister from his mother's wrath.

When he stepped outside, the sun's warm ray's instantly greeted his somewhat cool skin, sending an almost euphoric burst of energy throughout his pores that surged within his veins. He smiled charmingly at a few guests and bowed silkily, greeting them with a twinkle of his eyes. Some pretty much swooned; others blushed behind their fans. Smirking, Richard walked further out, catching his mother's eyes and embracing her while she was greeting a few guests.

"Good morning, mother," he said. She gave him one of her looks; one where she raked her eyes over him from head-to-toe. It definitely bothered him most times as his mother was always so critical of both he and Rosalinda, but moreso of his sister. He shifted uncomfortably until she gave him a tight-lipped smile.

"Hello, my dear. You remember what you're supposed to be doing today, don't you?" Rolling his eyes and still smirking, Rick nodded. "Good. Go flirt with one of your suitors - only your suitors. If your father complains to me one more time - "

"Perfectly understood, mother," Rick replied and kissed her cheek gently. "Don't you worry your pretty little head off. I won't even think about touching any other girls." The Queen shot him an incredulous look and Richard laughed, bowing to the women she was speaking with and excusing himself. As he turned and observed the crowd, he noticed Rosalinda on the arm of one of her suitors, Xavier, he believed. Ignoring the young man, Richard walked over and scooped Rosalinda up into his arms, grinning at her small shriek.

Everyone knew that Richard could be beyond infuriating. He almost seemed as though he didn't care about anyone but himself. However, those closest to him know that his sister had his heart and loyalty completely. It was only during these times where his true self showed - where he was warmer, softer, and maybe even a tad bit happier. He inwardly loathed the day that some random suitor would take his baby sister away and fought the urge to give Xavier a scathing look.

Looking beautiful as ever, Snow. Not like I didn't expect that," he told her and finally set the brunette down. He nodded to one of her ladies-in-waiting before settling his eyes onb Xavier, nothing but coldness and seriousness radiating in his eyes. "I expect nothing but respect and gentleman-like behavior from you. Otherwise, you will find how quickly I can it so that you do not exist." A beat later, Richard smiled charmingly. "Enjoy the festivities." And with a flourish, he was gone, sending a text to his tiny sprite of a friend for her whereabouts.

Off to find Anais and possibly one of his suitors.

Oh, and a glass of champagne to start his day.

Katherine smiled gratefully at Anais. "Thanks. I'm glad to see you're not as nervous as I am." she said and her tone held that of gratefulness. Seeing Xavier made her smile as well. "Hello Xavier and you're looking great yourself. We're just headed to the events actually I take it you are yourself?" she said to the suitor. When the Princess, her friend and her ladies in waiting approached and greeted them and Katherine curtsied to the princess. "Good morning princess and thank you. You look beautiful for the day's events." she stated honestly as she did to Anais and Xavier and noticed that she tried to cover her cleavage with her hair but said nothing about it and didn't think too much about it as it did not concern her.

The princess was indeed very kind to her but Katherine could not consider her a friend really but of course would reciprocate her kindness and respect her. After the princess went off with her suitor she noticed Anais' actions. "Everything alright?" she asked curiously. She wasn't going to pry but it was simply making sure that the girl was alright. If Anais did not wish to speak of it further she wouldn't.

Natalia woke to the brightness of the morning sun. The sunlight filtered in through her window, and cast an orange glow in the room. She tossed in her bed for a moment, not wanting to get up, but she finally pushed herself out of bed. She darted to the bathroom quickly so she could be ready on time. Once there, she started her morning routine off by brushing her teeth. Then, she turned on the shower. Hot water tricked down her body, both relaxing her and waking her up at the same time. By the time she was done, steam filled the bathroom and fogged the mirrors. Wrapping herself in a towel, she went to her closet to decide on what to wear. There was a party soon, so she wanted to look presentable.

Talia finally settled on her outfit. It consisted of a peach strapless dress, silver heels, a bracelet and a clutch. She wanted to keep it simple, since the focus today was on the prince and princess. At the thought of the princess, Natalia remembered she needed to help Rose get ready for the party. Quickly brushing her hair, she let her dark curls down, cascading down her back. After she put on some light lipstick and makeup, she left her room.

As she approached Rose's chambers, a servant tapped on her shoulder. Miss, would be so kind as to help us set up for the party? We're a bit short on hands right now," he inquired. Natalia glanced at the door to Rose's room and sighed. She had two other ladies in waiting to help her get ready for now. "Of course, I'll help," she replied.

Natalia spent most of the time helping set up the tables and the food, or hanging up decorations. Servants were running frantically around the castle, each set with a task in mind. It was hard work, but they were finally finished. By the time the finishing touches were done, people were already beginning to arrive. She spotted the princess walking out wearing a beautiful white dress. Alex, Evette, and Xavier accompanied her. Natalia absolutely adored the princess. She was a very kind person, and they had known each other for a long time. It was nice to see Evette in a dress, since she usually wormed her way out of it and wore casual clothes. She approached Rose, and gave a small curtsy. "Looking beautiful as always I see," Natalia said with a playful smile. "Sorry I couldn't help you get ready this morning, I was out here lending a hand with the set up." She smiled at Alex and Evette, before turning to greet Xavier. "Hey Xavier, how are you?"

ImageRose was standing with Xavier when she was suddenly sweeped into her brothers arms. She squealed with glee, ignoring the looks of the guest. She didn't really care about them. Her brother was her best friend. She also knew to some degree he loathed the idea of her getting married. And in some degree she haed the idea of having to share her big brother. She was always the one who would cheer him up or make him smile, she didn't want to share that ability. Though she supposed his child would do that too. She also imagined Grace wouldn't. That made a frown a little. 

"Looking beautiful as ever, Snow. Not like I didn't expect that," he told her setting her down. She pouted a little, because she knew that meant he was leaving soon. . It didn't take long for him to go to defense mode against Xavier "I expect nothing but respect and gentleman-like behavior from you. Otherwise, you will find how quickly I can it so that you do not exist.Enjoy the festivities." He then left in a way only the prince could. Rose blushed at Xavier "Sorry he does that" She said with a shrug. 

She felt a little tug at her dress and saw Cecily frowning "WHy didn't he spin me?" She asked. Rose frowned " He uh well..." Luckily Evette arrived. Cecily  liked Evette. "Did you forget about me, Cecily?" Evette To which Cicely responded "No Evie, 'course not," Rose smiled at the arrival of Natalia but was getting distracted by the couple with there eyes on her. 

She recognized the man immediately it was Blake, her blake, or he was her Blake. His mouth was in a firm uncomfortable line. She then noticed the woman snaked around him. ""that must be his fiancee" She thought to herself.  Just as she moved to approach them her fathers voice stopped her. He was  standing on the elaborate stage. 
The Polo Match

"Welcome, welcome my guest. Welcome to the annual Mid Summers  dream event and Gala. He smiled charmingly "I'm sorry this is just the event." He chuckled. "Well my family and my court welcomes you." Almost synchronized the court bowed their heads. The Royal Family waved, charmingly. "Well please enjoy the polo match it's beginning in ten minuets. " He said, his voice could be heard throughout the castle. "I ask you all to look at your invitation it has your seating sections.


The guest were all seated in their proper sections. The Princess and Prince right next to each other. The right hand man in the seat directly behind him, The princess's maidens sat behind her. The suitors all sat on either side of the prince and princess. The king and Queen were to be sat in an elevated section however the King peffered to sit with his people, though he was flanked by security, his mistress sat at the table next to him with their daughter on her lap. 



Image
Rose sat and watched the match. She glanced to her right and saw her father sitting with his mistress and half sister. Not that she minded she was happy Dorothy got to be out with her dad and sister in public. Though glancing at her mother, she couldn't help but feel a twinge of guilt. Because beneath her strong facade, her mother looked so... lonely. 

She sighed remembering when things were simple. Before Dorothy, before her dad started cheating. Back when her mother used to smile at her and Richard. Her mother never smiled at her anymore. In truth Dorothy is more of mom to her than her mother ever could be. But she still wanted her mother to be happy.

Just as the brother left another person drifted over who tuned out to be Evette, who was wearing a dress similar to the princess. He greeted her with a tilt of his head accompanied with a smile "Nice to see you here though I shouldn't be surprised as your face is very familiar in this castle" he said then he put on a playfully annoyed look but deep down he was annoyed "And only this cute little girl gets to call me Xav" he added as he playfully winked at Cecily who blushed and giggled.
Soon enough another lady whose name is Natalia ,who he believes is part of the lay-in-waiting, came over he greeted her similarly like he did to Evette and complimented her dress "Well, I didn't see you at the gala so far and you've finally graced us with your lovely presence" he said "Doing your duty's?" he asked.

Image

When he turned to talk to Rosalinda and was about to tell her that she was lucky to have nice companions he caught her staring at something. He followed her gaze and his eyes settled on a man and a woman, he resumed back to talking as he thought nothing of it thinking that they were some sort of important guests. Then he heard the king's voice announcing that the polo match was about to begin, he accompanied the ladies to their special seats, his seat was beside the princess and he looked to his other side to see two empty chairs for the yet to come suitors. He noted that he has a good view of the field and he also noticed the ing seated among the public as well as Cecily was beside him seating on a lap of a woman whose face he recognised somewhere.
'Maybe thats the mother..' he mused as he waited for the match, though he wasn't a fan of polo he appreciated the game at least.
