History:
Marcus was born into a house of privilege, the House of Stonewall. The wealthiest House in Deamore and one of the richest in the continent. He taught not in the art of war, but the art of business and politics. His father had always said that in the end, all men knelt to the burden of money. When he reached the age of Twenty he became the new Duke of Vont.

His reign started with tax reforms and deals with other nobles. As the replacement to his father, he was excepted into King Leonardo's council. He loved serving Leonardo up to the die he was betrayed by Lord Kenneth. Many of the nobility were frantic over the foreign powers taking their land. The largest one, the country of Lodaire, tried to convince the Duke in allowing the annexation. In response the Duke pulled in favors from indebted nobles in Lodaire to have its entire royal family assassinated. Assassinations followed to those who stepped in to annex his lands. Soon none bothered him again.

As with Leonardo, Marcus became Jonathan's main benefactor that supported his reign. In exchange the new King gave the Duke new lands and trade rights. After a while he had a monopoly on the silk, spice, and precious metal trade. With the money he lowered taxes on his people and opened state paid apothecaries and healers to treat them during the plague. It was in those years that he became discontent with the new King's rule. When he was walking through Vont one day he saw a sight that he did not expect. It was Jade Olivander, Jonathan's boy, lying in a ditch. He took the boy in and had him taken care of. Then he found a home for the boy that belonged to a man that he knew who was from the Order of High that was willing to take him in.

When Jonathan had ordered a sweep without his consent he was furious. He threatened the King with increasing interest to his massive debt to Stonewall unless he was given land rights to a forest near his borders. Marcus found Jade again after he had escaped and offered him a chance to fight back. Jade had created the Liberation Front yet it had no means of maintaining funds...that was until Marcus became involved. He poured money, weaponry, and food into the resistance. He promised more if a replacement for Jonathan was found.



Face Claim: Dot Pixis; Attack on Titans


Other Now the Liberation Front is stronger and is filled with unique individuals. Marcus knows many of them and about their pasts. He knows what Jade is yet refuses to tell him until the time is right. He also knows Tiana is Jonathan's daughter for they had met many times before she ran away and he always brought gifts. However, he guards her secret for he knows the danger that comes with her name.

So begins...

What was it about the town square that made Lisia feel so exposed? To her, it was as if someone was parading her around, screaming her name at the top of their lungs. Not her alias, the name given to her the day she escaped the clutches of the "king". No, her real name. The name of Deamore's Crown Princess. Lisia was positive that her fake name did not suit her. Lis Mirakel made her sound as though she was just another face in the crowd. On the other hand, Lisia Hallowell made her sound regal and unique. She was not entirely sure if sounding regal is what she wanted though. Maybe the sleepy town life was the way she should spend her years. Surely whoever took the throne after Jonathon died would be a much more gracious king. Lisia did not know that for sure though.

So, for the time being, she would wait for the opportunity to kick that phony king off his oh-so-high throne. She had to win against him. Lisia looked up from the book she was pretending to read to watch the people passing by outside. Her face was shadowed over by her cloak, but she was still terrified that someone would notice them. Sonia didn't even know that Lisia and her servant Lucia were out of the house. She was happy that Elliot agreed to cover for her; she couldn't spend another moment cooped up.

Now that she was in town though, she wondered if it was worth it. If one of Jonathon's forces found out who she was, they would have her head then and there. Lisia put the book back on the shelf, wondering where Lucia was with their coffee. She wanted to leave town soon so she could spend a quiet day reading at her favorite spot by the cliffsides. Absently, the brunette girl ran her hands along the spine of the books.

She loved the feeling of their leather binding beneath her fingertips. It reminded her of her late mother in a way. Caprice had been so fond of reading. Lisia felt as though it brought her closer to her parents. Her memories of them were few and far between, but the emotions that came with thoughts of them were too much to not love. Warmth, kindness, love... Lisia shook her head as if it would clear the thoughts away. It worked for a moment when she pulled a heavy volume off the shelf. She flipped through it. It was well-written, constructed with an artistic grace.

With a sigh, Lisia sat herself down on one of the many provided chair. She turned to the first page, her eyes hungrily eating up the words. What is fate? Is it the abstract thought that governs our lives or is it nothing more than a romantic notion that was created by man long ago?

Lisia sometimes wondered that herself.

ImageJade smiled at his surroundings. His small team was in place, he was in place, and he certainly wasn't about to waste the best and most amazing opportunity to make fun of his most hated friend, not really a friend in any way, king. He wouldn't bow or call him a king ever, just because he hated the lunatic.

Jade was about to give the signal to move when he caught sight of something, someone, that he never thought he'd see again. Was this really happening? How could it be? Maybe Jade was going crazy, but was that the princess down there? The one person that he had searched for for years? The one person that could truly save the kingdom.

Jade left his place of hiding, not concerned about being caught or reocgnized though he knew he should be. He even walked past his wanted poster, the one word he could read. He smiled slightly as he yanked the paper down and continued walking towards the girl. Only then did he give be signal, giving a flourish of his right hand as he didn't pause.

Rather suddenly, a group of ten, fifteen maybe, of his group appeared in the square, chasing down guards that were being cruel or harsh to the people of the small town. This was the fifteenth one that month Jade had personally visited to assist with. He was recognized by a guard and when charged, ducked under the man to throw him over his shoulder without so much as pausing his stride towards the red haired girl.

"Hey, hey girl, we gotta talk if only for a moment," Jade sakes to her as he approached. He removed his hat as he approached, looking at the girl closely. "Listen, you look like someone I know, please, please, swing by this tavern towards the edge of town tonight at midnight if only for ten minutes. I just have to ask you some things if you don't mind," Jade says with a smile of disbelief. If this was who he thought it was, the kingdom was saved, if she wasn't, then he could very well die tonight.

Jade just stared at the girl for a moment. Did she know who he was in any way? Did she know where he came from or who his parents were or why he was having a pretty horrible life so far? He doubted it, but he really hoped she did, even if it wasn't very probable.

"Midnight my friend, lest I must seek you out. May we someday meet again should you choose to avoid me my dead," Jade says with a smile as he gives a slight bow in a more polite way than respect or anything, before dodging another soldier to throw over his shoulder and into a nearby fountain.

"You men must realize, running at me doesn't do anything, it is only when you know how to fight do you have a chance of actually doing any damage whatsoever to my ego, ideals, or body," Jade says as if putting the soldiers who couldn't match Jade with their rather pathetically basic fighting styles.

"Jade!" the familiar voice of the head guard rings out. Jade smiles at him with a smile some people would describe as a lunatics smile. "Eduardo, hello, I'm sorry, but I'm off to go have a drink, let's fight another day when you have more men and might be a challenge," Jade says waving in a friendly way, "Until then my doomed friend whom I hate."

Jade turns to walk off, the square no longer being filled with guards searching for The Liberation Front or the royals. The head of guards moves to charge forward though Jade already is gone, dissapearing through the sense crowd, almost as if he was never even there...

~Another day sneaking out with Lisia from the rather cramp house. It was rather normal now and Lucia knew it, and her mother Sonia eventually found out that Lucia and Lisia had snuck out of the house and into the town. Though she never told Lisia that her mother found out. Yet today in the square Lisia was waiting for Lucia to bring her some coffee and thus she did. Having to make the coffee herself at a little shoppe. Humming a little tune that she learnt from her mother when she was younger. Smiling Lucia made the coffee and proceeded back to where Lisia was.

~Moving along with the cup of coffee, Lucia evaded the people in the square all she could, a few bumps and all from some and she was unwavering in giving Lisia her coffee, which she had made on her own using her Majik to make, because, you know she doesn't really mind doing something like that. Yet something caught her off guard which knocked her nearly off her feet, a bunch of fleeing people. Though one person had ran straight into her and took the little cup out of her hands and put it's contents onto her shirt and body, Why did I have to make this coffee so HOT?! she thought as she took out her brush and drew the symbol for her control over water and pointed her brush at the coffee scalding the left part of her chest removing the coffee and placing it in the cup. She picked up the cup and soon rushed to the square in worry.

~As she reached the square, Lucia noticed several things, and Several people, Lisia in her cloak standing near where she was earlier, on assumption she was about as confused as Lucia, then there was a man whom she saw for a second before he disappeared into the crowd along with about fifteen others, and several guards on the ground and the chief of the guard standing in the square, Lucia hastily approached Lis, having a bad feeling about the princess being found by the guard,

"Lis! Are you alright?" she asked as she got within hearing range of Lis and where Eduardo wouldn't hear, ready to move at a moment's notice. Since she was about as confused as most of the rest of the civilians in the area.
