Description:

Lauryn Auriol, a young woman appearing to be in her mid 20's. She has thick blonde hair that falls to about her shoulders and deep set golden colored eyes with a hint of brown in them. She has a seemingly slim build with a bit of an hourglass shape to it, upon closer examination while she appears slender she is actually quite lean giving her a small amount of muscle. She is quite short standing only at about 5'5'' and weighing around 133Ibs. She is often seen as rather attractive but beauty is in the eye of the beholder of course.

She often wears a puffy white blouse type shirt; along with a bodice that are the iconic Advaraian Crimson color (as shown at top). Along with this she wears about knee high riding boots and black suede pants, with this she wears a crimson sash fastened to her side that a variety of pouches and a sheath on her side that holds her weapon.

Personality:
Lauryn is overall a very sweet and fun woman, normally and she does have quite a few things. She very intelligent and is quite cunning. She often uses this to outsmart her opponents who are typically stronger than her. She is very kind and loving; always trying to help someone out or befriend others, at times against her better judgement. She is also quite outgoing and confident as all Advaran woman are, she is always willing to talk and often has something to say and as mentioned is always looking to befriend people. She is also said to have quite the sense of humor; she is all around said to be interesting b those who have meet her. Lauryn has a few negative traits to though; trait such as pride, she has such an intense pride for her nation and self that she will often not except help or will possibly fight to defend a belief or thought she holds dear. She also can be overconfident and over zealous at times causing her to believe too much in her abilities and at times take off more than she can chew (though this rarely happens and only happens normally in extreme situations)

History:
Lauryn was born and raised in the capital city of Freymere, she was the daughter of a the prominent House Auriol; a noble household known for the warriors and great negotiators. Lauryn was both of these things as she was raised to be a cunning warrior and negotiator, she started training in the art of negotiating at a very young age around 10, by age 18 her speechcraft along with her beauty made her one of the biggest assets to house Auriol as she could easily talk someone into what needed done. She was also an astute warrior, arguably the best swordsman in all Advara, so she also trained in this until around age 19 at which point with her speech and combat skills she decided it was time to make her mark in the world.

So she joined the Advarian Army as a captain, given her tactical, diplomatic, and high social statuses she quickly advanced in the military reaching the rank of commander. With her new achieved status she was sent to the frontlines of Pandemonium where she had held the border successfully held the border of Advara for 5 years stopping the demon armies dead in their tracks. She gained her greatest amount of fame however on that very last year as she held the gate in a seemingly hopeless battle where she was outnumbered 5-1 using brilliant tactics she held off and saved Advara making her a hero and icon to the people.

She returned home to a hero's welcome, being among the youngest heroes in the nation's history being only 23 at the time. With her new even higher social status she was able to bring her family to power as the old king had died and left no heir and there was need for a new sovereign. Through a series of votes, meetings, and convincing she was able to secure the throne for House Auriol and was chosen to be the nations new Sovereign; she is now tasked with the burden of leading her people and dealing with both Ventera and the Demon threat.

Skills:
Lauryn has a variety of skills mentioned earlier, most notable are her speechcraft (ability to get information and talk to others), her combat prowess and fighting skills, her spying/infiltration skills, and her leadership capabilities. All others are readable in her information.

Weakness(es):
Lauryn's weaknesses are her pride and zealousness as far as personality is concerned, this could be exploited but it would take a great deal of effort. Physically, she is much weaker than most of her opponents but relies heavily on her speed and mobility, if you slow her down she becomes much harder to deal with.

Equipment:: Lauryn only carries a few notable items, the first being her rapier at her waist. The sword never leaves her side and is said to have belonged to her grandfather. Secondly she has a series of pouches on her belt that hold different utility items and small tools she would need to survive or escape a hairy situation. Lastly, she carries quite a few knives on her; 2 throwing knives in her boots, and a medium-sized survival knife sheathed in her belt.

Notable Miscellaneous Information
-Lauryn is a master duelist, she has won many competitions in the name of House Auriol to bring further honor to her family name.
-I am open to Lauryn having a romance
-For roleplay reasons Lauryn is very skilled at talking to others and others normally take a shine to her easily.

So begins...

Akuma strode through the streets of Freymere, her boot heels clacked on the cobblestone street as she made her way to the hall where her meeting was to take place. She tried to ignore the stares she received from the Ardaran citizens. Today she didn't have time to be stealthy and take her usual back alley pathways but she didn't want to fly overhead and cause a panic either. So she walked as quickly as possible and tried to blend in as much as she could, being a 6 foot tall demon in a city full of humans. She made her way into the building where her meeting was. It was large and well decorated, to her it looked more like a church than a meetinghouse but then again she had never really had an eye for decor. She pushed open the large oak doors that led to the central chamber and strode in just to find herself alone. She had expected this, she was early, just the way she liked it. Akuma scoped out the room and mapped every possible exit in her mind. The Ardarans were usually very civil but one could never tell when it came to war. In the center of the room there was a large, oval shaped table with many chairs surrounding it. She took a seat in what she thought was the most strategic position and left the head of the table open for her guest. Speaking of her guest she wondered how she was to address her. She couldn't just call her by her first name, humans were so touchy about titles. She eventually thought of a title that she hoped wouldn't be offensive and sat back to wait.

Akuma sat there, silently for a moment or two. She should have bowed when the woman entered but she was more focused on charting new escape routes since her guest had brought armed guards with her. She had heard them coming from all the way down the street. Her guest seemed like a "no-nonsense" kind of person so she finally decided on a course of action. She stood removed her cloak and hood and bowed, spreading her wings as far as they would go given the limited space. "Good afternoon, Lady Auriol. My name is Akuma Sayako and I represent The Justicars. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to meet with me." She stood up straight, closed her wings and put her cloak back on; however she did leave her hood off. Akuma could feel Lady Auriol tense up when she realized Akuma was a demon but she continued to talk as if she hadn't noticed. "As you surely know the demon army grows stronger every day and if Pandemonium's Gate is not closed soon they will surely overrun this world." She began chanting a spell and then runes on her armor glowed faintly, dark magic swirled around her fingers and soon it enveloped the entire room. Suddenly they were no longer in a meeting room in Freymere, they were in the Demon's camp and the Gate could be seen not far off with more demons coming out of it every minute. "Do not be alarmed Lady Auriol this, all of this, is nothing more than an illusion." She passed her hand in front of a nearby demon and it went straight through him. "I have projected this illusion to give you a better idea of just what you're dealing with here. I realize that I myself am a demon but I assure I am nothing like my kin. You see I can actually control my blood lust." She pointed over to Pandemonium's Gate. "As you can see, my lady every day the demons grow in numbers and if we do not do something soon it will be too late to do anything at all."

Lauryn sat as she observed with a deep sense of disgust and disapproval as Akuma spread her wings, now her look of welcoming slightly faded instead turning to a stone set face nearly emotionless. She let the woman finish speaking then once she finished she sat thinking for a moment. She put her hands together and set them on the table. "The Justicar's sent a demon as a messenger to me?" She laughed slightly "It's a bit ironic to be honest". She looked down to her hands then back up to the woman "I know the demon threat is all too real, I spent the majority of my adult life fighting them. But in all respect my kinsmen have held the border since the invasion of the demons and our great walls have stood strong to many demon sieges."

She stood up and walked to a decorative glass window and put her hand on it as she looked out towards the land of Pandemonium
. "I do understand they are a danger but at this point Advara has remained safe and gods willing will remain safe, I can not afford to take immediate action against the creatures other than defend do to risk of invasion to Advara."

The Angel of Death was losing ground, quickly. She would have to say something to convince Lady Auriol that it was in her country's best interest to fight alongside their worst nemeses, and she'd have to say it soon. "I understand that you and your people have been able to hold your own for the time being but you must listen. I have walked among the demons in their camps and I have heard them speak. They expect their numbers to triple over the next three months. Now tell me, my lady can your forces handle that many demons coming at you all at once?" Her illusion of the demon camp faded as she spoke and they were once more in the great hall in Freymere. "Please remember that the Justicars are an order composed of both Advaran and Venteran soldiers. They saw that the only way to vanquish the demons was through cooperation, so why can't you see it too?"

She strode up and down the hall as she spoke, her voice growing more and more urgent, her wings spread wide. "[b]Have you ever heard the phrase the enemy of my enemy is my friend? Well if it is true that makes the Venterans your friends and friends work together. Please, my lady I am certain that if you gave me your seal of approval I could surely get the Venteran leaders to join in an alliance and rid this land of the demons once and for all!/b]" When she had concluded her speech she closed her wings, slowly walked back to her seat and awaited an answer.

She sat down in her chair once more and set her hands under her chin. She sat deep in thought for a few moments and looked forward at the middle of the table as if fixated on something. She had come to her conclusion. "Currently the brunt of my armies are on the border of Ventera, as we expect an attack soon. If you can talk to someone of authority in that god forsaken mess of a nation, perhaps a chieftain or lord as there are many different ones all controlling their own armies and get them stop the encroachment of my border. If you can't then I will simply have to retaliate against Ventera and trust that my men will hold the Border of Pandemonium as I trust they can". Her eyes shifted now to The angel of death once more. "This is the only way I can support the Justicars without jeopardizing the Advara's security"

She now stood up and walked over to a different part of the room; a room full of boards with maps and a large rectangular table with a map of all of Aurelia and on it were little pieces that represented armies and the estimated amounts of enemy armies. She had forgotten about her guest and said. "I wish I didn't have to put you in a position like this but it is necessary, but if Ventera can be convinced you will have Advara's full support... so long as Ventera stays in check."

Akuma saw a glimmer of hope in a sea of despair and she grasped at it. If she could get the Venterans to move their men away from the Advaran border and towards the gate the humans could definitely overpower the demons that had come through the gate and find a way to stop more of them from coming through. She didn't smile, she hardly ever smiled but her eyes and her words showed her gratitude. "Thank you, Lady Auriol for giving the Justicars a chance, I am sure that we will be able to get the Venterans to move their forces away from your border and finally put an end to the demon invasion. I will return when I have the Venteran leaders' approval and we can all work out a plan of action."

Akuma put up her hood and returned her cloak to it's normal position over her wings. She now looked more like a tall human than a full-out demon. She bowed and exited the room, her heels making even more noise now that she had a job to do. As soon as she left the building she moved the cloak aside, spread her wings wide and took off. Ignoring the shouts of the guards below her she hovered over the city. She had heard that the Venteran leader Sergei Kottorov was in Freymere at the moment and if she could convince him now they would all be able to discuss how best to deal with the demons. She used her excellent eyesight to scan the streets in search of him. It didn't take her long to find him, he was accompanied by troupe of guards but they were nothing she couldn't handle. She dove towards him and hoped this meeting would go as well as her last one.
