The Basics

ImageImageFull Name:
Simon Alexander Bjornson

His brother celled him Simmy growing up



Prince;Nephew to the king of Ostwall

Sexual Orientation:


What's on the Outside

Hair Color:
Eye Color:
150 lbs.
Various ones on his back, stomach, and one above his right eye
Simon looks exactly like his brother. The only way to tell them apart is how they act. Simon has brown hair, a square jaw, and brown eyes. He stands at 5'11" and weighs around 150 lbs. He appears to have an athletic physic and is strong though not as much so as those who train every day. Because Simon trains around three or four times a week, he is strong and very good with a sword though he doesn't appear like it. Simon has a scar right above his eye that his barely visible. He also has various scars on his back and stomach from a certain fight he was in.

What's on the Inside


{Outwardly: Weak, Overprotective, Loving (towards his family), Curious}
{Inwardly: Caring, Loving (towards his family), Curious, Dreamer}
On the outside, Simon appears to be too weak to stand up for himself. He really just doesn't care. He won't stand up for himself if he doesn't think it is worth it or will benefit him. He is very good about not caring if he is insulted but can't stand it when his family is mentioned. Simon is always overprotective of his brother and will always try to talk him out of a stupid idea that he is bound to come up with. He loves to study and will always read in his spare time, even at parties.

On the inside, he isn't much different other than the fact that he can't help but always hope for a good future. He openly cares for his family and will help them as much as possible.

Simon is constantly reading, he will always have a book on hand and would rather be reading at a party than really socializing. He can't stand it when he doesn't have a book around and will promptly find one. He is always up for reading no matter where he is or who he's with.
Simon loves to ride horses with his brother. The two could ride for hours. Simon loves horses and always takes care of his own horse instead of making the stable hand do it as he has always taken care of his own horse.
Simon is constantly studying. He has a private tutor that he shares with Guy though Simon is more prompt with their work. Simon loves to learn new information is always doing extra research when he can.
Simon loves to hum, he may not be very good at it, but he always hums when he's thinking. Along with humming, he is constantly tapping his fingers, feet, and or his writing utensil.
Staring off into space
When Simon isn't reading, and is just sitting around with nothing else to do, he zones out and will not react to anything unless he snaps out of it or he is touched by someone else in order to get his attention.
Panic Attacks
If Simon gets too much going on, he will have a panic attack which consists of him breaking down. He can't help but go into a mode where he won't respond no matter what except to his brother. He can't eat, won't respond, and goes into a state of unconsciousness after the hyperventilating. This only occurs in highly stressful, seemingly hopeless situations such as the time his father died.

What's Done Is Done


Place Of Origin:
Simon and his twin brother Guy were both born as commoners. They lost their mother in childbirth leaving them with just their father. The family were not extremely poor though they certainly were not rich by any means. The two grew up doing odd jobs for their father and for those around town in order to keep things running at the small store they owned that sold various objects.

The boys were never in trouble and would spend their free time running off ride or draw. When Simon fell in love with a girl when the two were fifteen, Guy told him the girl was no good. The two got into a large fight and Simon refused to acknowledge Guy for nearly a month. It was then that the girl revealed herself to just be using Simon to make an old friend jealous. The old friend nearly killed Simon in a fight the night the girl revealed her true identity. Guy swung in and was able to get Simon out before any real damage was done though Simon doesn't remember it.

Guy and Simon became closer than ever and hardly left each other's side. Even though Simon thought Guy appeared as an arrogant idiot for self esteem, Guy had other reasons. Guy could not accept that he had almost seen his brother die and hadn't done enough, so he swore to make it so his brother never got with another girl. That way, he would never be able to get hurt again, Guy would rather keep the pain than let his brother experience it ever again.

Guy and Simon were out riding horses that belonged to their uncle, the king, when there was a fire at their father's store. Within, their father died as he was trapped. The two came home to nothing and were forced to leave the town for they had lost everything but each other. When they arrived at court, they had a difficult time adjusting and couldn't help being rather secluded until they discovered the library. They both took an interest in learning to read and began reading often as well as their other hobbies.

They both adjusted to court life after that and became rather sociable. Simon was slightly less so as he was more in love with reading than Guy, though that didn't stop him from starting to try to help his uncle. Simon worked to help his uncle when he could in between his studies on diplomacy. He hoped that one day he might become a diplomat and that he and his brother could travel around the world to seek peace, even if Guy wasn't entirely into that kind of stuff.
Happiest Memory:
Riding with his brother out in the fields near the town they lived in.
Saddest Memory:
Their uncle dying and seeing the remains of their old store/home.

Simon had been standing outside Guy's guest room door for nearly half of an hour before his brother opened the door. "What, decided to hand sew your own outfit?" Simon asked, annoyed that his brother wouldn't let him in and wouldn't tell him why. "Of coure not, I was rather busy with my mask thank you very much. It was too drab and plain. That and I had to finish something," Guy says simply with a shrug.

Simon nodded as he caught a glimpse of a canvas leaning against a bookshelf in Guy's room. He adjusted his own mask to make the strings go over his ear since it seemed to keep slipping slightly out of place. "Did you bring a book?" Guy asked as he caught a glimpse of the book in Simon's hands. Guy shook his head, wondering about his brother. He really had fallen in love with reading hadn't he? Even though the two had only been reading for a year or so, they were pretty advanced with it. "Parties are boring and you know that," Simon says as the two walk towards the sound of a ball. "I still don't get why we have to come. Just because we have a title doesn't mean anything. You know that. We hardly act like Ronan ever, so why do we have to be lumped in with his same title? Not including the heir to the throne and all..." Guy drawled. He loved and hated parties.

Simon shrugged. In all honesty, he was glad for the title, it allowed him to see the inner workings of diplomacy and allowed for the highest education possible. "Just try not to get slapped tonight, you've been known to do that," Simon muttered under his breath to Guy as they entered the ball only to have a few people that they recognized from the tournament this morning leave. "What's the fun in that?" Guy asked with a smile as the two made their way into the throng.

Guy followed Simon as Simon searched for a rather secluded place to sit and read. Guy hated that his brother wasn't one for a party, but only their uncle could force Simon to dance, well, perhaps Ronan too, but other than that, nobody else, besides maybe a neighboring king, but that doesn't matter. "Don't go back to the rooms before telling me, I'd join you," Guy says before looking around. He spotted a lady that was staring at the dancers and was about to move in to invite her to a dance when Simon asked, "Are you wanting to go on the hunt tomorrow?" Guy shrugged, he really didn't want to, he would much rather lock himself in his room though he knew that might not go over well with the others.

"Let's talk to uncle and ask if we can get out of that, I know you aren't too keen on killing animals," Guy says softly before moving to accept a flute of champagne. He took tiny sips, not wanting to drink a lot. Guy left his brother in search of their uncle and saw him with Celia. "Hello uncle, if I could just steal a moment, I wanted to ask you about the hunt tomorrow. Do we need to go?" Guy asked knowing his uncle would understand the "we" as Guy and Simon, it wasn't hard to figure it out since the two were always around each other.

Simon sat in a corner on a column's base, a book in his hand. He wasn't really paying attention to the world around him as he sat in the shadows, entirely focused on his book.

Simon stared at the sight in horror, feeling something like regret and guilt even though he had not killed his uncle. He listened to Ronan's story, not believing this was how his uncle died. He believed Ronan, but was in disbelieving that his might uncle would fall in such a way. "Ronan," Simon begins upon seeing his cousin growing colder by the second. He didn't like that he was speaking to Renly that way, he didn't like it when he spoke like that to anyone.


Simon moved forward to help his cousin lift his deceased uncle, holding back the feeling he wanted to go crawl into bed and sleep forever. Simon grabbed the reins of his horse as they passed her, helping Ronan guide Ulfric's body on Ulfric's horse. Simon walked solemnly, his face devoid of any emotion. Where was his brother? Simon breathed deeply, not making eye contact with anyone as they moved forward. He hated it, he hated everything at that moment if he was going to be honest with himself.

"Ronan, have you seen Guy this morning?" Simon mutters under his breath, wanting to know if anyone had seen Guy at all. He knew Ronan and Guy had something against each other, but he had hoped the two might at least know each other's whereabouts on such a large day as a hunt.

Simon saw his uncle's arm fall off from where it had been on his chest causing Simon to turn away for a moment. The man who had taken him and his brother in, the one who had practically raised them, their father's brother, gone.


Guy smiled as he stepped back, looking at the web with drops of dew hanging off it as if it was hanging in his window. Guy looked out to see storm clouds brewing and frowned, pulling his painting inside but keeping the windows open. He liked the humidity storms brought. He studied his painting again, frowning now as he saw that he hadn't caught the light, he had neglected the light! He'd have to start over. He sighed and tossed the half dry painting on his bed.

Guy heard a rush at the door then saw a servant barge in. "Prince Guy," He begins, out of breath and looking horrible. Guy instantly knew something was wrong, something had happened. Was the storm worse than he had figured it would be? "Is Simon alright?" He demanded, fearful his twin might have broken himself should he have gone on the hunt. Simon had figured his brother would have just stayed in bed, not go on the hunt without him. Now he wished he had gone. "No, sir, you're uncle..." The guard hesitated, as if he wasn't quite sure what to do.


"Well?" Guy presses, moving to grab his vest. "You're uncle... you should come see him," The guard finishes. Guy nods, pulling on his boots and grabbing his cloak as well as Simon's. He had left it in Guy's room after their ride outside yesterday. Guy followed the guard, walking quickly. What could have happened to his uncle that had caused such behavior? He probably was just sick or had pulled something, wanting to have Guy around just so that he felt a little better.

Guy followed the guard until they were outside where the guard pointed to the tents. Guy saw his brother, his shoulders hunched, looking rather unhappy. Frowning, Guy accepted his horse from a nearby squire he looked relieved to be going back into the stables. Guy felt bad for making the kid stand outside for so long, but dismissed it as he mounted and rode towards his brother. He saw something on Ulfric's horse, perhaps his cloak. As Guy rode closer, he slowed, seeing people were crying or staring at Ulfric's cloak. "Simon... What's wrong?" Guy asks as he dismounts, approaching the small procession where he spotted Renly and Ronan as well. Simon's head sprung up, staring at Guy with something Guy had rarely seen from his brother.

"Where were you?" Simon asks, staring at his brother. Guy looks at his brother with surprise. "What do you mean? Simon what's wrong with uncle?" Guy asks as he walks forward, offering Simon his cloak.

Simon takes it only to throw it on the ground, furious at his brother. He needed an out, he couldn't let it out on Ronan or Renly and there was nobody else around that could take his anger but his brother, even if it was a little hard now. Simon looks around incredulously, then walks forward to grab his brother by the vest. "Don't you get it? How can you not see it? That's him, that's him right there, Guy. He's gone," Simon declares, pushing his brother towards Ulfric's body before turning and leaving, having a hard time taking the horror.

Guy looks at what he thought was Ulfric's cloak but catches sight of his uncle's pale hand. "Oh my God," He whispers, looking around and realizing what had happened. He wanted to fall on his knees, but withheld, staring at the body, then Ronan on the other side of the horse, then back at Ulfric.



Lucas noticed the disapproval from the count and his friends. Lucas nearly ignored Christoph altogether had it not been for Priscilla coming over. He couldn't believe the girl was sitting with her father, in his lap. He couldn't remember the last time he had sat in his father's lap, he couldn't remember the last time he had talked to his father about something like that.

His attention was caught when he spot the king of Ostwall was shown to be dead. He moved closer to his ward, standing right behind him. They had been apart too long, he was afraid now more than ever that he wouldn't be able to keep Nicholas safe, especially when one of the strongest king through the world was found dead, killed.
