Introduction

Image

Image
For as long as anyone has known, the village of Wall in England has been home to a gateway between the mundane world and that of magic. Of course, if one were to ask, the residents would claim the gap in the wall from which the village got its name was only guarded out of tradition rather than a closely held belief. Still, no one dares cross the gap, except once every nine years for the Market Faire. Nearly eighteen years ago, little more than nine months after the Market Faire of April 1839, a pair of babies, twins, were left on the wall for a Wall resident. Now, these children are grown and pushing the boundaries of their little village.

The village of Wall is peaceful and comfortable. Nothing of particular note to outsiders happens between Market Faire years, but once every nine years, for three days late in April, travelers flock from around England and around the world to see the fabled market just beyond the gap in the wall. That gap is guarded 24/7 by a rotating roster of the village's men. The market is the only time anyone is ever allowed to cross the wall.





ImageImageThe Thorn Family || The Thorn twins have always been considered odd. Most people in Wall have at least some inkling of their true heritage, but the twins have no clue that the woman they call mother is actually their step-mother. Their real mother lives in Stormhold, beyond the wall.

Image
Dunstan Thorn || 37 || Male || FC: TBD || NPC
Eighteen years ago, Dunstan Thorn attended the Market Faire, where he met a woman being held as a slave by a nasty shopkeeper. He purchased a glass snowdrop from her for the price of a kiss, and they spent the night together. One month later, he was married to Daisy Hempstock. Eight months after that, twin newborns were placed in the gap of the wall for him, their names pinned to their blankets.

Image
Daisy Thorn || 36 || Female || FC: Rebecca Ferguson || NPC
Daisy was Dunstan's sweetheart when they were young. Everyone expected they would marry. She did not expect to raise another woman's children as her own, but she did so with alongside her own daughter with Dunstan with little complaint. She's grown to love the twins just as she loves her daughter.

Image
Twin one Thorn || 17 || Male || FC: TBD || OPEN
Twin One believes themselves to be completely in love with Child Forester. So much so that they have foolishly promised to bring her back a fallen star they saw in an attempt to win her affection and her hand in marriage. To do this, they must cross the wall. Both twins have numerical names.

Image
Duana Thorn || 17 || Female || Luca Hollestelle || Taken by PutAnotherX
Duana loves her brother, but she also knows that this endeavor is foolish and pointless. That doesn't mean she won't indulge Twin One in his attempt, if only for a laugh and to keep him from dying a horrific death in the unknown world beyond the wall.

Image
Louisa Thorn || 16 || Female || FC: TBD || NPC
Louisa was born just six months after the twins

The Monday Family || The Mondays own the Monday and Son's General Store in Wall. Child Monday is expected to take over the family business when he comes of age.

Image
Child Monday || 17-19 || Male || FC: TBD || OPEN
Child Monday has been quietly courting Child Forester for about a year, and he had planned to begin openly seeking her hand in marriage when the Thorn twins disappeared past the wall. Although he never liked either one of them, now he's been roped into helping Child Forester get them back.

The Forester Family || Both Mr. and Mrs. Forester were childhood friends with Dunstan and Daisy Thorn.

Image
Child Forester || 17-19 || Female || FC: TBD || OPEN
Although friendly with Twin one, Child Forester has never been romantically interested in them. She plans to marry Child Monday, but an offhand comment about doing anything to have a fallen star sends Twin one off to find the star they believe will win Child Monday's heart. She feels guilty for sending the twins to their death, and sets off with Child Monday

Stormhold, also known as Faerie, is a world of magic and splendor, filled with every fae creature under the sun. The king has been on the throne for two and a half centuries, but his failing health has forced him to hurry along the selection of an heir.

Image
The Star|| Unknown || Female || Emilie De Ravin || Reserved by Wandie230

Una || The Lost Princess || Unknown || Female || FC: TBD || NPC
Tricked and enslaved by a nasty merchant witch, Una has been kept as a colorful bird unless needed since she gave birth to twins. She is enduring a long punishment for giving away a prized and powerful crystal flower, and she's been cursed to stay a slave to the witch until a star loses her heart, if it happens on a week when two Mondays come together.

Image
The Princes || Most of the potential heirs are dead, and not by coincidence. Tradition creates a lifelong battle between all potential heirs until only one is left alive. For the first time in memorable history, there are two princes alive by the time the king dies. The law dictates that the throne must pass to a male heir.
