Flight of the Gryphons info/sign up - open to all

Post by Jiminy on Wed Sep 06, 2017 10:59 am

[This was created with some help from Daydreamer.  Play for this RP starts Saturday, 9/9/17]

The land of White Gryphon has been at war for five years now, embroiled in a bitter feud with their neighbours, Black Lyon.  The benevolent Empress Livia Orestilla has been doing all she can to help her people during this time of crisis.  Her people adore the Empress, honouring her every move.  She has personally overseen the training and raising up of the most elite class of warrior in the world: The Silver Gryphons.  It is the dream of every Gryphon owner to earn the right to be a part of the Silver Gryphons.  They even have a song the civilians have dedicated to these warriors, a song that every warrior knows even while pretending to be ignorant of.

Bad news is coming by to call.
Bad times are here.
Bad guys are smashing through the walls.
Time to know fear.
Bad dreams are cruising like a shark.
Bad as can be.
Bad things are laughing in the dark.
Nowhere to flee.

It's time to make a stand, it's time to pay the cost.
The Reaper's scythe is keening in.
Situation desperate, the day is all but lost.
There's just one chance you have to win.

Send in the Silver Gryphons!

No way of leveling the odds.
No hope to win.
No use in calling on the Gods.
They've got you pinned.
No time to make another plan.
No breath to shout.
No strength to make a final stand.
Luck has run out.

Your life is on the line, the blade is at your chest.
It's time to play the game to win.
Call back the amateurs; it's time to send the best.
Call us or call your next of kin.

Send in the Silver Gryphons!

Bad news is coming by to call.
Bad times are here.
Bad guys are smashing through the walls.
Time to know fear.
Hard folk make sure the job is done.
Hard as a stone.
Hard fights can still be fought and won.
You're not alone.

Send in the Silver Gryphons!

Gryphons fight causes that are lost.
Gryphons defend
Gryphons don't try to count the costs.
You can depend on
Gryphons, as smart as they are tough.
Gryphons don't rest.
Gryphons, when good is not enough
Send in the best.

Send the Gryphons

Send the Silver Gryphons
Send in the Silver Gryphons.
Send in the Gryphons.

Send in the Silver Gryphons!
You gotta call for the Gryphons
Send in the Gryphons.
Call for the Gryphons
Send in the Gryphons!

Gryphons!


~~~~~~~~

The world is only mildly steampunk, rudimentary weapons and steamships, not much beyond that.  There is no magic in this world, but plenty of fantastical creatures exist.
Gryphons come in many sizes from elephant size (give or take) to house cat.  Only the largest of Gryphons are allowed to be soldiers, and of those only the best of the best are chosen to be Silver Gryphons.

Name: General Nikolai Svehla
Gender:  Male
Age: [does not have to be exact]. 28
History:  Nikolai came from humble roots, his father being a breeder of small gryphon, mostly for pets, and his mother a seamstress.  But one man appreciated his fathers talents and brought to him his full sized gryphon to breed.
It was an exciting thing for them but also somewhat intimidating as the gryphon seemed intent on eating everything they owned, being a rather mischievous creature.  It ended up having twins and in return for the things his gryphon destroyed, along with the agreed payment, he let them keep the smaller one.  Neither parent wanted anything to do with another big gryphon again so they let young Nikolai have it, much to his excitement.
He turned out to be a champion Gryphon and Nikolai an excellent rider, giving him a low spot in the much desired Silver Gryphons at a young age.  From there he rose to the top, over the years, and has become the youngest general the Silver Gryphons have ever had.  Due to that many don't take him seriously enough.
Persona:  Nikolai is a humble man and prefers simplicity over grandeur, though as a general he is expected to portray at least a little bit of that lifestyle.  He doesn't like parading he's above people if he can help it, though.  Nikolai enjoys getting involved with the recruits during his spare time and sometimes even goes on the lookout for new riders to join the Silver Gryphons.

Name: Kyan Sveltsan
Gender: Male
Age: 24
History: Kyan and his little sister were orphaned when he was thirteen. His father bred and trained large gryphons for a living and when he and his wife died suddenly of a fever, the business was left to his son and their older cousin. Kyan trained his own gryphon and steadily worked his way up until he was able to secure a position in the Silver Gryphons two years ago. Though still a young, new member he has gained respect with his grasp of tactics, steadiness and bravery
Persona: Kyan is a tactician. He thinks logically and seldom lets emotions get do his head. He will abide by his own moral compass even if it means going against the flow for what he believes to be right. His weakness is his little sister, she is one of the few to see him smile or show intense emotion and he is motivated by his desire to protect her innocence and the safety of the people around him. Not to say that he is made of ice however, if put around the right people he can be bullied into having a good time and he absolutely, under no circumstances should be allowed to drink….

Name: Trinity Sveltsan
Gender:Female
Age: 19
History: At the same time that her parents died of the fever, Trinity also contracted the disease and sustained serious damage to the lower half of her body, leaving her incredibly weak and only able to walk for a few steps before falling, therefore she spends most of her time in a wheelchair. She has taken on much of the burden of running the Gryphon breeding farm with her brother working for the Silver Gryphons, but she also has help from an older cousin.
Persona: Trinity is Kyan’s beam of sunshine and she tries her best to always be a positive thinker. She is a quiet soul, but quite friendly and bouncy once you get to know her. She is quite sensitive and empathetic, but strong in her own quiet way. She has a streak of stubbornness in her and she is quite the little devil if she has to be.
