Zari is strong leader and has proved herself many times. Her fighting skills are widely known and many rumours of her fights have been told. She loves to have power and money but she's a strong and loyal ally – if you just pay her enough. But even if she loves money, she's making sure everyone gets their own cut. Most of the Kingdom's wealth she uses to maintain her army. She's also skillful when it comes to trading and bargaining. She's ready to fight to get the best possible deal for herself. Being open to both sides ensures she has the best chance to be on the winners side – or maybe even being the winner and getting the position she dreams about, The Queen Lion.

She's proud, and that makes her stubborn as well. She wants to have control over things. Manipulating people to work as she wants is, as she says herself, her hobby. She's also clever and sneaky. You can't always be sure if she's telling the truth to you, and she's not so concerned about right or wrong as long as it benefits her.

There is also a more caring side of her that is hidden deep inside her. She's always been taught to survive alone but in reality wouldn't mind if there was someone to take care of her. Even if Zari acts strong, she cares greatly of her people, trying to make sure they won't suffer in rash environment. She's especially concerned about her younger brother even if he's almost as good fighter as she is, but losing him would shake her world.

However she tends to get mad easily – especially when her plans don't work. Her short temper and amazing fighting skills are reasons why most of the people fear her. She often carries a claymore with her so pissing her off and your death might be only few seconds apart.

~ History ~"I wouldn't be Princess if I couldn't fight."
In her kingdom all that matters is good fighting and surviving skills. Living in the bare mountains with wild animals, they're vital conditions. As soon as the children turn seven, they're given their first weapon, usually a knife or bow. By the age of 15 they're expected to handle at least two different weapons and survive in the mountains alone. Zari was perfectly capable of doing this and even surpassed many of her age. She was able to fight barehanded, or use a bow, a knife or swords.

When the previous prince, who was Zaris father, passed away, there was a tournament in which the next ruler would be decided. The rules were simple: the next prince would be the one who doesn't lose, and if you lost your match you couldn't fight in another. Zari, however, couldn't stand the thought of her little brother Griffin taking the crown. Being sneaky, she waited until her brother had won most of the matches. Because "Princess of Leos" was unheard of, Zari took some armor to hide her face and hair. The battle was intense but after three hours she finally won. When she revealed her face the Leos were in shock. They didn't think a woman could rule a country - especially when it was 17 year old girl. There were many who challenged Zari to a duel and she has won every single one of them. She has shown that a woman can be a leader. After all, she has ruled the Leos nine years already.

~ Family ~"The death of my family will never be forgotten"
Aldrich Leo - Father and the previous Prince - deceased at age of 46 (when Zari was 17 years old)
Sanura Leo - Mother - murdered by Jafari at age of 26 (when Zari was 4)
Griffin Leo - Brother - 23
Jafari Rashid - Uncle from her mother's side - killed by Zari at the age of 38 (when Zari was 13)

~ Thoughts on Others ~"I'm not saying I'm better than them. However everyone has their weaknesses"

King Constellation "I'm grateful for all his help but I'm still not going to help him for free. Let's say it's payment for all those extremely bad dad-jokes."

Queen Stars "There's some things we think alike. However she's even too confident of herself and her powers. She should think carefully about hiring me, otherwise.... I might just go after her crown."

Aries "Strong leader, fighter and woman. Those are good qualities. Also I have to admit I have never forgotten the day we met"

Taurus "Calls herself a warrior but has never been in a war nor doesn't want to even get involved. I can't respect someone like that."

Gemini "It's so frustrating to talk with her. Because you can't actually talk to her. But I have to acknowledge that she's not stupid. Being mute and able to rule needs intelligent and quick witted person."

Cancer "I have only heard rumours of him. Would be interesting to meet him. Maybe have a match or two."

Leo "Me? The one you don't want to piss off."

Virgo "I don't really know that much about her. But the little I know... She seems boring. I doubt I even want to know her better."

Libra "An overly self-righteous idiot, annoying egoist who thinks he's funny, smug bastard, drunkard moron, a leech at his best and has less manners than the leeches in question. Actually calling him a leech is disrespectful towards leeches."

Scorpio "The new ruler has something even more shady going around him than the previous Prince. He will have to earn my trust before I continue business with his Kingdom."

Sagittarius "So full of herself."

Capricorn "He's not that bad. I can congratulate him for his success."

Aquarius "A bit of mystery to me even if we share a border. Somehow we haven't been in the same place at the same time. A true warrior and strong leader, someone I could spar with."

Pisces "Over-excited, way too cheerful and childish. Do you need to know more to realize I don't like her?"



The land of Leos

~Geography of land~"You need a tough shell to make it alive."
The land of Leos is in the middle of the mountain range - making it tough to survive in bare terrain and on cold nights, especially in winters. It's not rare to see people gathering to forges where fire is burning almost all day long. The castle itself is on the highest peak, and has sturdy stone walls that won't shatter when there's an earthquake. Most of the Leos live near castle for best supplies but there's training camps all over the kingdom.

The capital is also hard to reach - the mountain path there is long and most of it is a winding road. On horseback, it takes at least 5 hours to reach the high and sturdy walls of the castle - if the weather is in your favour. When raining, the roads quickly get slippery, and in winter they are covered in snow and ice. Landslides can also block the roads and you have to find another path around. However on foot and using shortcuts over the mountains it's possible to reach the castle faster - unless you run into cougars, bears or wild boars.

There's no forests or plains where you could have fields, and so getting enough food for the whole nation has always been a struggle. It's possible to grow some plants on the lower mountainsides where it's warmer and the ground has better fertility but it's not enough to produce food for everyone. Often Zari uses the kingdom's wealth to buy vegetables and fruits from other kingdoms. However when talking about meat - there's no shortage. There's many wild animals on the mountains as well as some streams where you can catch a fish or two.

~Military history~"Fighting is in our blood"
Given that the Capital of the Kingdom is hard to reach and has sturdy walls, their military isn't made for purely defending the castle. Since the ancient times Leos have always loved to fight, either with each other or someone else. They were ranked by their military skills and the ruler was always the one with most strength and strategic skill. Most importantly, good fighting skills were needed to defend oneself from the wild animals as well as to catch prey.

Some centuries ago, the current Prince was asked to help another kingdom in a fight. He saw it as an opportunity to grow Leos wealth and formed the first army of mercenaries. They won the battle and Leos reputation as an efficient army was quickly formed when their help was asked time after time. As so the Prince formed a larger army of mercenaries using the mountain area as an ideal training camp. Leos didn't only polish their fighting skills but their strength, speed and stamina when training on the tough terrain every day in any weather. Over the time more and more Leos wanted to join to army dedicating their life to fighting.

Nowadays every Leo can fight, loves to fight, follows orders and are loyal to their leaders. As a ruler, Zari is also the warlord guiding the captains of the smaller units. Even if the army is formed from the mercenaries, they usually won't get paid straight. Instead of the salary, Zari uses the large pay she gets to maintain the army as well as getting food resources. Surprisingly, not many is against this system since it's not only benefitting them but everyone in their family as well. For the upcoming war, Zari won't only provide an army to fight in front, she can also provide protection to other kingdoms.

~Culture~"We're proud to show our traditions"

Verasey, the Capital: The Capital of the Kingdoms of Leos is located up in the north, on the highest peak of the mountains. In Verasey, you can find the Castle where Zari lives, and most of the Kingdom's forges are also located there. Most of the Leos live in the capital so it's the busiest trading centre in Kingdom and from the marketplace you can find finest pieces of art: weaponry made by blacksmiths of Leos.

Steelbound Forges: One thing you can't miss while visiting the city is the large complex of the forges located near the castle. From early morning to late night the fire is burning in the heart of them; the sounds of hammer hitting in the metal echo all over. There's several smaller forges that each has a focus producing one item: one- or two-handed swords, shields, armor, spears or bows and arrows. Each blacksmith has a passion for their work and it can be seen from their accuracy and skill.

Colosseum: The grandest sight in their land is a Colosseum, built in ancient times when the Leos were fighting against each other. It's not built stone by stone but is actually carved in the mountains, so that the highest row of seats is in the same height as the rest of the land. The colosseum is extremely large and even with every Leo in there, it won't be even nearly full. It's located a bit further away from the castle to the east where the terrain is more flatter. Nowadays, it's used for the army training or fight shows when there's a duel. It's also used if someone outside the Kingdom wants to challenge a Leo since on uneven land the Leos usually have an advantage. It's also been used to keep large gatherings, for example, when the new ruler is crowned.

Misty Hallows, the Cemetery of the Fallen Warriors: Behind the Capital walls, where the last rays of sun are falling, is an old cemetery for the greatest fighters of the Leos. Buried there are the previous warlords, the highest ranked Captains and Princes among Zari's father, Aldrich Leo. Also it's the last place of rest for those Leos who have done a great, some could say even heroic, task for the Kingdom

So begins...

Princess Zari Leo's Story

2,5 years ago in Leo's Kingdom


As every morning Zari was practicing with Griffen. Their swords slashed together, and Zari was jumping around their practice room. She was wearing a light black leather armor as usually for easier moving and knowing she definitely wasn't in danger. It was an unwritten rule between her and Griffen that no blood would be shed and the sword would stop before it faced skin. "Miss Leo!" Cayden, one of the Captains and her closest adviser shouted. "What?" Zari asked bluntly not letting her eyes of Griffen as their fight continued. " I have interesting news. There's someone challenging the warriors of Leos near the market place." Zari chuckled a bit. "That person is either bold or crazy. But fine I go check what this is about." she answered and hit the sword off from her brother's hand placing the edge of her blade on his neck. "You died."

After getting to the market place still wearing the same outfit she looked around to find this person. It didn't take long to find as there was already a ring of audience cheering their fellow Leo that were getting mixed into fighting sounds. Leos let her through as soon as they saw her but the view Zari faced made her surprised. Not only the fighter was an Arian and a woman but she could fight as well. Her opponent at the moment was Zari's childhood friend Lucas who, when not a great fighter covered it up with his amazing speed that the Arian was capable to keep up with. "Lucas! Don't play around!" she shouted to him. "Are you warrior or not?!" It was rare to see someone from another kingdom and even rarer for them to challenge a Leo or several. And of course Zari wanted to prove everyone her army was strongest. She observed the Arian close. She had to admit that girl could fight, however with Zari's keen eyes her movements were easy to predict.

Alexis Conall- Prior to Princessdom

Controlled breathing. Quick movements. Sharp eyes. Vigilant responses. Alexis recited these in her mind as she fought this Leon, her sword clashing with his constantly. These fights had long since failed to be fun. In all honesty, the first fight came as a result of wondering where she could go to train. All of a sudden, she was training in the street? Not uncommon in Aries but the thought it could happen elsewhere surprised her.

'Don't hesitate! You should have finished me!'

Those words were so engraved in her mind that she could think the words faster than she could say them. She had to fight to win. To live. Her mind travelled back to the challenge issued by Prince Travis Hunter Aries. The demand in his eyes. The determination.

The bloodlust.

That was the only reason she had interfered in the first place. Stupid Jaun and his lack of fighting skills. The scar on her back seared, still painful months after. Her teeth ground, eyes flaring angrily.

'Show me you are worthy of fighting a Prince of Aries!' The voice bellowed. 'Three years! You will fight me again!'

There was no need for him to say the or else. It was a given for Prince Aries's rule.

As the Leon charged at her, she pivoted. Not wanting to cause bloodshed from his carelessness, Alexis threw herself at him, causing him to fall over and hit the ground. Her foot slammed down on his sword hand and her sword tip went to his throat. "Yield."

With a sigh, the Leon released his sword, grinning up at her. A small smile of her own formed as she removed her foot and sword and offered him a hand to stand once more. He rose, grinning at her. "Nice fighting, little lady."

"Not so bad yourself," she answered, a cheerful attitude finally breaking through her stern demeanor. Alexis looked around at the crowd around her, thinking quietly. "I guess I'll be going now. There are fights elsewhere to do and I've had my fill of Leon's."

Princess Zari Leo


Seeing Lucas to lose the fight Zari growled lowly. How could a Leo lose to someone? Before Lucas even had stepped away from the ring Zari had drawn a claymore from her back and stand in front of the woman."Mind to have another fight?" she asked from her loudly enough to everyone hear. There was immediately gasping and whispering among the Leos. "Zari? Is she going to challenge her?" "That girl is an outsider. She has no chances." "We're having an Arian for dinner tonight" The audience were laughing and mocking her. Zari ignored their behaviour. She wasn't going to take this fight lightly. She had to show the true nature of her Kingdom. Besides it was also a good opportunity to give a little reminder to Leos why she was the Princess.

"And Lucas, you need more lessons. I will talk to your Captain." She said confidently even if Lucas was few years older than her. Lucas blushed and nodded stumbling away from the ring and out of the way.

Zari looked back at the Arian. "What you say, stranger? Or are you perhaps too scared to accept my challenge?" The Leos laughed. This was a fight they wanted to see. Their ruler kicking someone's ass.

Her eyes settled on the newcomer, examining her. The Leo seemed to hold power to gain so much response to her challenge. And here she was thinking she could finally move past this city. Or at least get some rest. 'Not like the Prince would give you a break. He will be relentless. There is no exception.' She turned to face the Leo, grin wide and hiding her reluctancy to continue. "Very well, miss. I will fight with you."

Taking her stance, Alexis held up her sword. She examined the other, trying to predict what her fighting style would be like. Would she pounce forward like the other Leos? No... No, she was different. She would be more controlled, containing that wilder side. She wouldn't hold back. Alexis felt a spark flare inside of her, a new excited light in her eyes. 'No need to hold back.'

Another beautiful day yet again. Eugene sighed happily as he took another long puff of his cigar. He enjoyed traveling and today he had the task of going to visit Zari and Griffin as he usually did. It had not been too long since their parents died and he happily took them both under his wing. Nothing could be more tragic than losing those so important to you at a young age. He didn't mind keeping a eye on them. In fact, it was his pleasure to. Aldrich and Eugene grew up as very close friends. It was no surprise that he would take up the responsibility. Eugene slowly lifted his head as he felt the ship stop.

"We have arrived your highness."

He smiled slightly standing and stretching a bit before walking over to the large bag that was seated next to him. What sort of guy would he be if he didn't bring presents anyway? Once the ship had come to a complete stop, he stepped off and bowed along with the others to the guards of the Leo kingdom. Once granted entrance, he made his way to the courtyard and smiled slightly before calling out.

"Now then. Where are my two favorite trouble makers huh?" He yelled with a small laugh waiting for the usual running.

Princess Zari Leo


Zari hold her claymore firmly. She let the Arian estimate her since it was only fair for this duel. She had been observing her fighting style already. Zari bowed her head before start – an old habit taught by her father. You had to always show respect towards your enemy even if it would be a mere thief.

”Fight!”

A Leo that had been acting as a ringmaster shouted and immediately Zari run forward. She headed straight to her head first – a move usually made by amateurs, but it was only a bluff. Using the long blade Zari reflect sun towarsds the Arian to blind her even for a second. As Zari was in the distance close enough to attack with a sharp movement she spun around to backside of the Arian swinging her sword aiming to the side of her neck.

The battle had begun.

As the light blinded her eyes, Alexis knew she was fighting no amateur. The other was doing whatever it took to win. She felt a small tingle of excitement running through her as she ducked below the swing, moving at a much faster rate then she had been doing with the other Leo’s. Below the other's arm, she shoved her body into her, causing the woman to stagger bit ever so slightly before getting back into her ready stance. Her eyes hid a glimmer of a challenge, daring the Leo to attack her once more. She knew very well she was tired and attacking with reckless volleys currently would not do any good for her.

“COME ON! GIVE US A FIGHT!” A voice from the crowd screamed. Everyone began to jeer and shout, calling for Alexis to move. She held her place, ready for the next attack.

Zari was slightly surprised the Arian had been able to avoid her attack and made her even took a couple of steps back to find her balance. "Not too shabby." She smirked taking a stance. She could have just keep attacking but waited. She wanted to see what this woman was made of. The look Arian had told she would do everything she could.

"What is it? Did you already lost your strength?" Zari spoke loudly mocking her. However she wasn't doing it for disrespect, she wanted the battle to continue.

Alexis laughed, examining the other with bright eyes. So it looked like it was a test of stamina and energy. Ah, this would be interesting. She dashed forward, her sword easily blockable as it came down. Alexis wanted to clash swords, to test this woman’s strength. Adrenaline rushed through her veins and excitement burst from her eyes. She didn’t have to hold back.

Images from her training reemerged, multiple battles on end in the special training camp the Aries Prince had saved for the best of the best. She learned of honor. She learned of how battle style was another expression of herself- her true self, no boundaries. Alexis found a strange being residing inside of her, having been fighting to emerge since the beginning. The spirit inside of her seemed to carry bright desire and intensity. The spirit loved life and action. The spirit loved to fight. And although Alexis had been suppressing it through her travels, the spirit was coming to light once more. ’Fight! Fight!’

Kingdom of Leos:
After the previous Prince death


"Now then. Where are my two favorite trouble makers huh?" The Kings shout was echoing in the empty courtyard. The whole castle seemed sad and gloomy. The guards stood still, there was no usual chit-chatting between them. Only couple of servants walked past the yard doing their work but none paid attention to Eugene as they walked quickly head down.

Cayden, one of the Captains approached him. ”King Constallation. It's pleasure to have you here. A quest room has been prepared for your stay. The servants can take your belongings there.” he spoke formally. ”Griffen is in the throne room with the counselors organizing the battle for the crown. And Zari, I believe, can be found from the practice rooms. That girl pretty much lives there nowadays.” Cayden tried to joke but the way he talked revealed that it was more truth than a joke.

As the servants took the King's baggage to his room, Cayden led him to the practice rooms and opened the door. ”Miss Zari! The King Constallation has arrived!” he shouted to her but Zari even barely glanced at them as she was practising with a bow, hitting a target after target.

Zari laughed softly seeing the Arians excitement. It made her to feel more excited as well. It was refreshing to fight against someone else than a Leo. The audience was now growing more and more louder as well cheering for both of them. This battle wasn't just a practice match, this fight had a soul.

She blocked her swing easily their swords clashing against each other. Zari's hold was firm and tight. She pushed against the other blade not going to lose. As she was facing her she spoke to her. "You're not an ordinary fighter, I can tell it from your eyes. However..." Zari was using more strength to push her blade away. "Your movements are too easy to read." She finished pushing her away, taking a couple of the steps back and dashed towards her from the side, lowering her body about to attack on her side but in the last second she just swung her leg hitting the woman behind a knee to drop her down. Zari stopped behind her and turned towards her in a stance.

The strength and firmness behind the sword gave Alexis a good gauge of how the other’s power was. She seemed nearly as solid as a rock. Then again, Alexis was good at breaking rocks. As the woman slammed the back of her knee, Alexis fell before pivoting in the other direction, still on one knee but in a proper defensive stance as she once again rose to her feet. ”You read my moves because I’m not trying to hide them,” Alexis informed her, teeth glinting in the sunlight. ”I charge, you get out of the way.” With this she came at her once more, the light glinting as it swung in an arc to get at the other’s side.

Zari smirked as she saw the blade coming. A move she had waited for. She waited until the blade was just in the right angle and distance and... Jumped. With just right timing she landed on top of the Arians blade on one foot, and using it as a springboard jumped again.

The Leos were going wild. This was Zari's signature move. No one else even in Leos had been crazy enough to jump on the opponents blade. It was a combination of accuracy, strength, speed and reading the opponents movements. It also needed a great knowledge of swords not to injure one's foot and to count it could handle the weight. All this in few seconds.

Zari made a volt over her opponent's head landing behind her and quickly turned around to see the effect of her move.

The blade nearly tumbled from her hand at such a strange technique. Alexis eyes grew wide in surprise but she forced herself not to think but to act. She squatted as the blade bent under the Leo’s weight, balancing herself. Her hand held strong against the reluctance of the blade to bend. The Leo bolted above her but as Alexis turned on her heel, prepared to strike immediately at her landing. Then words cut through like arrows.

”Go get her, Princess!”

That made her freeze in her place. ”Prin…cess?” Her blade, which had been about to move forward to take out the other, stopped. She stopped. Her mind went to the Prince, the anger on his features, the b…bloodlust…

Her hesitation was all the other needed to win.

Seeing her opponents moment of shock and hesitation Zari charged swinging her claymore hitting on the Arians blade that swung away from her hand and with another fast move her blade was against woman's neck so close she could feel it but there wasn't a single drop of blood.

"WIN!"

The ringmaster shout and Leos shouted and applauded to Zari who lowered her sword and bowed to them. She turned back to the Arian. "Nice match. Now may I introduce myself. I'm Zari Leo the warlord and the Princess of this Kingdom." Even being a fierce fighter she was still had taught good manners. "What is your name, warrior?"

It all happened so fast. Yet, all she could expect when the sword came to her throat was anger and outrage.

‘I didn’t mean to hesitate. I won’t do it again. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Please, don’t scar me.’

Her fears faded as the sword left from her throat and the Princess bowed to the crowd. She blinked a bit before throwing on that smile once more and reaching down for her sword, sheathing it. Alexis met the Princess’s eyes before bowing slightly. “Alexis Conall, Prince Leo. I’ve been traveling around the kingdoms in search of training outside of the Aries kingdom. I did not mean to intrude upon your street. I was actually looking for a training center, not a fight.”

Zari laughed. "A training center? This whole Kingdom is a training centre. Everyone in here dedicate their life to fighting." Zari smiled to her as she placed her claymore on her back. "But if you want to find a place to practice we have large training grounds on the palace. Sword fighting, bow, hand to hand. Anything you can think of can be trained there. But the best way to train yourself is to challenge others. Smashing targets can't be compared to a real fight." Zari was sure the Arian knew it already but her instinct told her that woman would do something great one day and that's why she should be polite and help her. She didn't know where that instinct came from but it was another lesson from her father. "Always trust your instincts, the are rarely wrong."

The ringmaster walked to them offering a jar of water both of them bowing to Zari. Zari nodded as a thank and took a long sip. "I can also offer you a place for night or a meal. Think it as a reward for a good fight. And I'm sure with a little polishing you'll be able to reach what you are aiming for."

Alexis Conall- Prior to Princessdom

Alexis accepted the jar offered, taking a quick sip before letting it hang to her side. It seemed she had not been too exhausted from the fights, just extremely bored. "I do appreciate the offer and would be happy to take up on your offer. It's been a while since I've slept in a bed so that would be good." Moving to the side, Alexis picked up the lone but large bag that had been laying there. Worn, the bag seemed to have gone through months on the road. It seemed far past retirement.

Slinging it onto her back, she looked to the Princess once more. "Your fighting skills are phenomenal, Princess Leo. It must be from much training. I personally prefer training on my own before training with partner. After all, there are no repercussions for cutting up a wood post." She tipped her head back, finishing up the rest of the water before handing the empty jar to the ringmaster. "Thank you for judging the matches today."

"No repercussions but not real life experience either." Zari laughed friendly. She preferred to train against another person instead of wooden dolls but everyone had their own style. It was important to find a training method best for them. "And since you asked, I was five when I got a real sword instead of some clumsy wooden sword." she added as she waved Cayden to her.

"Cayden, show this miss a way to the barracks and arrange her an own room. We want to let our quest to sleep in peace instead of having to listen brawling men." Zari smirked and some nearby Leos looked embarrassed. Zari knew well enough the soldiers liked to drink and fight even more after being drunk enough. She turned back to Alexis. "The dinner in barracks is from four to six. Cayden will show you the way to dining hall and practice rooms as well. Eat as much as you want. It's all on me." Zari gave a friendly smile - something you didn't see often. But this Arian had lighten not only her own but Zari's fighting spirit as well.

"I wish best of luck to your journey miss Conall. Remember never underestimate your opponent."

He raised an eyebrow slightly. That was quite odd. He then nodded as he heard the captain speaking. "Thank you." He said as he left his things and picked up the small sack before making his way inside. He looked around slightly wondering what was on the mind of the little ones he was meant to watch. He sighed slightly while rubbing his chin.

"Hm... Knowing those two, Zari will probably be the hardest nut to crack..." He mumbled slightly before continuing his way to the practice rooms. He hummed lightly before finally finding his way into the room. He looked around slightly taking in the memories. It had been quite awhile since he stepped foot in here. He smiled hearing the sound of arrow after arrow hitting targets. Yep, Zari was here for sure. He made his way behind her observing as she took each shot. Something was the matter he could tell.

"Ahh quite the eye you have. Your getting stronger and stronger each day Zari." He said as he placed a hand on her head.

Zari Leo


Ignoring his hand on her hear Zari aimed one final arrow hitting on bullseye. "This is nothing. I need a longer practice room." She said bluntly without even greeting him. Cayden looked shocked. "Miss Leo, please have some manners." "What? It's true. This room is way too short for training." She said as walking to the other end of 50 meters long room starting to remove the arrows from targets. Shaking his head Cayden left, leaving the two of them alone. Zari stayed quiet pulling the arrows putting them into a quiver on her back. She was frustrated that she had to stop her practices. She had to practice more to win her brother.

After a long time of silence Zari turned towards Eugene. "And you are here because?" She asked sharply, almost hostility. She didn't care she was talking to a King. She didn't care anything expect training right now. Her manners were far from those her father had taught to her. Compared to that she was having manners of barbarian. She even looked like one. He hair and clothes was messy and in dust like she hadn't changed or showered in days. Her eyes were red from forcing herself staying awake at nights. There was even table of food brought in the room that was almost untouched. It hadn't been a joke. Zari was living in the room.

He smiled slightly as he heard her speaking. He then turned to Cayden and laughed a bit. "No no it's fine." He said before watching Cayden leave. He stretched slightly before removing his coat and placing it to the side. He then began to fold back his sleeves and picking up another bow off to the side. He smiled innocently.

"What me? Well, I'm just here to keep you company. Don't mind me."

Unfortunately, he hadn't used a bow any day of his life. He recalled playing with toy weapons with Aldrich as a child. He was more of a striking weapon kind of guy. He took a deep breathe and pulled back the arrow only to drop it. Yep, he was not skilled at this what so ever. He continued his cycle of picking up the arrow and dropping it immediately before finally getting it to fly. Well, it didn't go that far. Only a few inches. He smiled and laughed a bit.

"My my. You and Aldrich sure do make it look easy. I could never stand a chance against such bowmen masters." He said before attempting to try again. "Have you been grieving child?"

Zari watched him as Eugene tried to use a bow. He was truly terrible at it. She let out a little chuckle seeing his attempts. "Your arm is in completely wrong position."

As he got more serious Zari looked away from him. "I don't have time for something like that. The battle will be held in few weeks." She spoke bluntly again. She was going to participate even if there was never been a female Princess in the long history of Leos. Probably there wasn't even been female contestants. But Zari had already made her mind and nothing could stop her. Not even the King himself.

She smiled at her, eyes bright. "Thank you once more, Princess Leo. I hope to see you again sometime. And another sparring match would be welcomed as well." Alexis gave a small wave, turning to follow Cayden. A good rest sounded pleasant after all this fighting.

"I'm booooooored," Alexis groaned, splayed out on her bed. She was restless. The last fight so good it got her blood pumping for more. But she knew very well she shouldn't push herself to do more. Sighing, Alexis hopped off the bed and left the room in search of entertainment.

"Hmm.. Oh seems like your right. Am I suppose to hold it this way then?"

He said with a small smile before turning the bow completely upside down. He then looked over to her slightly as he picked up a arrow and accidentally shot it into the ceiling.

"Ah so close."

Well, he was no where near close really. But as long as it made her smile, he didn't mind seeming like a complete idiot. He looked to her and smiled.

"Battle? Ahhh sounds intense. But I'm more than sure you aren't afraid. You are a strong girl." He said with a smile. "Though a Princess of Leos hasn't been heard of. You bare a strong will. I can tell."

He said before laughing a bit.

"A strong will and a strong heart make the perfect leader." He then smiled happily. " You remind me of Aldrich so much, it's almost as if I'm looking at him again." He lifted his head slightly looking to the arrow that was firmly in the ceiling of the practice room. "Tell me Zari, how strong is your will to rule?"
