        Silver mountains, golden fur,
        glimmering in dawn of sun.
        The call is set
        for chosen twelve.
        Time nears.
        Sun sets.
        World is colored Crimson.

        King’s Guard / 31 / Inubashiri Momiji

              A weapon passed down by the King to each of his guards, Odysseus takes a form of the weapon the user is most skilled at. The weapon also does not like to be held by anyone else but the King’s guard and picking said weapon might at worst suck the life out of them and cause them to drop dead in a blink of an eye. In other cases, the weapon just takes another form as a rock. For Gin the weapon changes between katana or bow, seemingly to change by the set of her mind.

              The sword also increases one’s performance in combat. However this skill does not come without a drawback as it pushes one’s body to its limits.

              Using the weapon requires both a strength of mind and strength of body. The increased performance causes muscle deterioration and other physical effects from overexerting. For Gin, the more exhausting part is the self-control required to use Odysseus as weakness of the mind can cause her go berserk. The weapon is also tricky in her hands as if it’s not sure which skill is Gin’s true skill, katana or bow. And it seems when her mind is the weakest, the weapon shifts to bow - a reminder of her hometown and family she once left and wanted to forgot.

        Unwavering Sword



        Gin has always been loyal to her Kingdom and hardworking in her career, but after reaching the ultimate honor a Leo fighter can gain - to be King's guard, she became even more loyal and hardworking. She takes her job extremely serious, so serious that she even tells other guards and people working under King how to do their jobs.

        She's not very talkative, mainly talking if needed and is extremely cold towards strangers. More often than not she steps between a guest and King, just staring them with cold gaze until they either back up or the King tells her the visitor can approach him. The one person she's closer to, is the King. Even if people call her glorified babysitter as she handles the Kings emotional outbursts, she feels a level of connection with him. Away from her homeland the King is closest she can call a friend.

      Through the Silver Mountain


      The past of Gin was same of many Leos - to become a skilled fighter. However becoming King's guard was not in her goal list as she was expected to become a hunter. As a child, Gin lived in the hunter’s town in woods and became a skilled killer with her bow and arrows. However she didn’t really fit in as there was one dream of hers that people didn’t agree with: to go out and explore. Thus she has used to being alone and spend her days hunting and bringing home food and money in rather young age as she didn’t have many people to call friends to go and play with.

      But her heart was set to explore the world, and as such once she was called in the army at age of 15, she stayed there, training hard every day. Practises made her travel across the Kingdom, training in different camps and people took notice of her skills. She became a member of Crimson Mercenaries at rather young age, only at 21 and was working for them at the same time as the current Prince of Leos, Edric. The two of them were about same age, and being youngest members became friends rather quick - however they also fought a lot. However after Edric won the tournament and was crowned a Prince, Gin took her distance of him, almost shutting him away completely, not wanting people to think she was his favourite as she was now working directly under him.

      After a year another chance was given to her. A chance to become King's personal guard. It was tradition that the guard was one of Leos, more specifically one of Crimson Mercenaries. The Crimson members and couple black horses, or black cats, were invited to take on series of trials that would determine the best one to be King's guard. The different trials measured strength, stamina, speed, agility, fighting skills, book smarts and even etiquette. Where Gin lacked in one or two overwhelming strengths, her skill palette was very balanced gaining her good points in front of the jury. However, one of the people observing her was Edric himself. To this day Gin does not know if he was the one making it so she could achieve the second highest honor a Leo would got, highest being the ruler of Leos.

      Now, for last 6 years she's served under the King of Constellations. Her maun job is to be his guard but over the last 3 years she's been taking more and more responsibilities as King's diplomat as the King has been shutting himself more and more. Anyone wanting an audience with him must now go through Gin first.

So begins...
