The Queen's Games -> Available Canon List

Welcome to The Queen's Games, a roleplay based on Tamora Pierce's Tortallan universe set in the matriarchal monarchy of Kalim. In the shadow of a power-hungry Empire, the Queen has been pushing for alliances with Tortall and other lands to the east, as well as rallying Kalim's own magical and martial defenses.

That popping sound you hear is the cbox! It's at the bottom of the page. Why not drop in and say hi?




July is a brutally hot and humid month in Kalim. Those with money often take trips to the coast for relief while businesses in the major cities may close in the middle of the day or even for the rest of the summer. Rainfall is rare, except around Eldeva and Akhtil, where thunderstorms account for most of the precipitation.

AVAILABLE CANONS


Below is a list of the available canons for our site. Within the collapsible box is a brief description of the character, major characters relevant to them (spouses, close family members, etc.), and an optional set of links to recommended reading. Most characters' names and PBs are negotiable. If a piece of information seems to be missing, it may be up to the player's interpretation. If you are uncertain about any of this, you can contact a member of the staff through your choice of methods here. For a list of canons currently in play, look here!

Canons can be reserved! Without an application, each canon can be held only once per person for a maximum of seven days. A posted application counts as a reserve until it goes inactive.

ROYALTY


user posted image user posted image user posted image

LERANT OF RICHILDE
23 (b. 580) - Prince of Kalim - The Pretty Brother

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  
Lerant is perhaps the most obnoxious variety of big brother. Prone to harassing and teasing his younger siblings, he has been accused of having an obsessive need to have someone paying attention to him. He has been quick to brush off these assumptions.

His path in life is largely up to the player: Mage? Knight? Something else entirely? What's certain is that Lerant makes friends wherever he goes, and isn't shy about using royal wealth and privilege to show his friends a good time.

He married Batari three years ago, and while the alliance is assured, their relationship has been less clear. At present they have achieved something of a friendship by way of intense, (mostly) friendly rivalry. Batari infuriatingly makes a contest out of anything, and he's not going to stand by and let her win!

Important Connections: Batari of Richilde (wife), the Richilde family.
Magic: Moderate to none. Type and specialization up to player.
Recommended Reading: Schooling (Convent, Academy, or Knighthood as applicable), Magic (if applicable)

Suggested PBs: Tom James (model), Alex Teixeira, Raul Merida

BATARI OF RICHILDE
23 - Princess of the Copper Isles - Troublemaker

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  
Batari was raised to be heiress to all of the Copper Isles. Her aunt, the queen, had no children of her own, and her own mother had abdicated her claim to it when Batari was still a child. Her assumption that she would be the next queen was turned on its head in 599 when her aunt finally had a child late in life. Her fiery personality and mulish stubbornness had often been excused if she was to be queen, but after a scandal in 600 H.E., her aunt was quick to marry her off and send her away from home.

If she holds it against anyone, it isn't the Kalimi. She went from one Matriarchy to another, and this one less experienced in dealing with her. Her firecracker personality has burned even brighter the last few years as she has rained righteous and richly-deserved antagonism on her husband. It's just too tempting! The guy can't resist a challenge! It's ridiculous the lengths he will go to to try to outdo her, and she has yet to find the limits of it.

How Batari feels about her replacement as heiress (bitter, relieved, etc.), whether she was trained as a warrior queen or not, and the nature of the 600 scandal are up to the player.

Important Connections: Lerant of Richilde (husband), the Richilde family.
Magic: Moderate to none. Type and specialization up to the player.
Recommended Reading: The Copper Isles (Tamora Pierce Wiki), Magic (if applicable)

Suggested PBs: Maria Agnes Bong, Michelle Agnes Samantha, Manohara Pinot

KESSLER OF RICHILDE
20 (b. 583) - Prince of Kalim - Knight of the Realm

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  
Kessler has never been good at sitting still. As such, knighthood seemed like a natural course of action for him, but with three years on his shield now, he wishes someone would just let him do something! He has always been close with Eleni, but his proximity to her has often caused him to be overshadowed, fostering in him a desperate need to prove himself and be useful as something more than a marriage alliance.

In his time on border tour, he became more familiar with the Eversworn and admires them greatly. Their fervor and (some would say brash) determination to act speaks to his desire for action, and he longs to be sent to their aid. For the good of the people! For the glory of the fight! Just... not for a wedding, please!

Important Connections: Eleni of Richilde (Sister), the Richilde family.
Magic: Minor or none. Type and specialization up to player.
Recommended Reading: Schooling: Knighthood, Current Events, The Eversworn, Magic (if applicable)

Suggested PBs: Tyler Posey, Brennan Mejia, Michael Trevino

ALASTOR OF HOUSE SUNSPEAR
40s-50s - Lord Commander of the Eversworn - High Expectations Father

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  
A proven leader and well-trusted by his countrymen, Alastor was appointed provisional leader of the Khirosian resistance known as the Eversworn. He is a man of integrity and determination grown harsher by having his lands and titles usurped and his oldest son slain. He has spent the last several years trying to persuade the Kalimi royals and nobles to help the Eversworn reclaim their country, serving in the courts rather than the battlefield. Between his grief and his fervor, he may have lost sight of the things he still has, leading him to clash with his older daughter Elaina as she challenges his control.

He is married with one surviving son and two daughters. Recent negotiations with Kalim have suggested the possibility of wedding Elaina to an important Kalimi nobleman, perhaps even the youngest prince.

Important Connections: Elaina of House Sunspear (Daughter)
Magic: Type, strength, and specialization up to player.
Recommended Reading: Current Events, Khiros, Knighthood: Khiros, The Eversworn and The Eversworn (Extended Information), Magic (if applicable)

Suggested PBs: Alessio Boni, Kim Rossi Stuart, Antonio Rubio (model)

NSIA OKAFOR
Late 20s - Early 30s - Academy Instructor - One Woman Army

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  
Nsia was sent to the University of Carthak at a young age, her magic already manifesting in grand and sometimes hazardous displays. By the time she left the University, she had a red robe to her name, the second highest classification the University awards. The Havran Academy invited her to Kalim to teach and to assist with a massive, highly confidential research project. She has quickly gained a reputation among her students as no one to be trifled with. Nsia is a transwoman and should not be apped as cis.

Magic: Very strongly Gifted, war magic.
Recommended Reading: Magic: The Gift, Schooling: The Academy & Foreign Institutes, Current Events, The Gift: Extended Information (Optional), her country of origin - if you are uncertain on where to find information, ask the admins. We suggest either Carthak or somewhere on the Western Continent

Suggested PBs: Janet Mock, Lea T, Jenna Talackova (or other transwoman PBs)

ENLAI GAN
Mid 20s - Early 30s - Arms Merchant - Opportunist

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  

Fast-talking and charismatic, Gan is an arms dealer from Huainan come to Kalim to cash in on growing tensions with the Darshani Empire. He seeks to open a steady exchange: his access to steel, gunpowder, and specialized weaponry in exchange for Kalim's generous limestone stores. Though this enterprising young businessman has got his lips to a few noblewomen's ears, he has his work cut out for him getting into their purses, and if the strings prove too tight, hey, he hears those Khirosians are getting pretty desperate.

Note: Huai names go [Family Name] [Given Name] and should be registered as such.

Magic: None.
Recommended Reading: Huainan, Economy, Current Events

Suggested PBs: Godfrey Gao, Daniel Liu, Aarif Rahman

MIA PRIETO
Early 20s - Rook Chief - New Council

Collapse (Show/Hide)
  

Any skepticism due to Mia's young age is quickly settled by her unquestionable capability. Appointed crew chief to a group of rooks in Alora at a young age, Mia earned they loyalty and respect, growing her reputation when she stepped into the shoes of the district chief following their death in the conflicts with the Richilde Council. Her rooks rally behind her with a mad faith and dedication, supporting her rise to the new rook council as a voice for the people of the River Cities. As sort of a grass-roots contender, her support having truly come from the ground up, her people hope she will act as a voice for even the lowest in the River Cities, fighting for their interests in what they perceive to be a den of wolves.

Magic: Moderate to none. Type and specialization up to player.
Recommended Reading: Rooks, The River Cities, Current Events, Magic (if applicable)

Suggested PBs: Pilar Moraga, Shanina Shaik, Katie Findlay
