    House Cronwell:

    Founding: ~500 years ago.
    Heraldry: Head of a dark horse and a white colored tower below the horse's head, with red colored background .
    Colors: Red, white and black.
    Motto: Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears.

    + Allegiances:
    _ Velder state.
    _ House Ilych.
    _ House Grevan.
    _ The Order of Feita (Feita knights).
    _ Kinaz school.
    _ Crow Mercenary Knights Company (before it was destroyed).

    + Vassals:
    _ House Williams (cadet branch of House Cronwell).
    _ House Croix-Rivière.
    ​​​​​​
    + Rivals:
    _ Lord Wally of Elder.
    _ House Felford (after betrayal).

    House Cronwell is said to be already around at the time of the foundation of what would later become Velder and amongst its oldest and most major Houses of the country's aristocracy, although they themselves have also claimed to be descendants of a lineage which stretched hundreds of years before El Explosion, however that claim couldn't be verified.

    House Cronwell have maintained a reputation of distinguished services backed by their powerful and robust military mights throughout a large part of their history, most notably their contributions in the 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 7th Velder Civil war, having extinguished many rebellions, participated in many conquests and reconquests of regions in Lurensia...

    Over the years they have developed, refined and maintained their devastating cavalry units, and House Cronwell's cavalries are among the finest in the entire nation. House Cronwell is so proud of their cavalries, the dark horse has eventually been incorporated into their House Heraldry.

    Their motto, "Beat your plowshares into swords and pruning hooks into spear" stemmed from a real event when Sir Gregor Cronwell told his peasants and servants to literally hammer their farming and gardening tools into weapons, then led them who were armed with such weapons to achieve a surprising victory, winning through the skin of their teeth.

    Outside of House Cronwell, the motto has became a widely known, quoted and debated in Velder's military, denoting situations when the armed force has to mobilize properties and manpower originally intended for civilian's usages to try to win in war, no matter the cost.
    ~~~WIP~~~
    House Cronwell (continue):


    Incomplete list of distinguished Cronwells:


    Name: Nika Cronwell.
    Nickname: The icebreaker.
    Gender: Female.

    Background:
    _ Famous military leader who's most remembered for the achievement of conducting an epic offensive which breached and collapsed the so-called invincible defensive line in Second Velder civil war: the Leopard-Wotan Line, breaking the stalemate which had lasted for years, contributing greatly to the war effort and the eventual victory of the war for the faction she sided with.


    Name: Gregor Cronwell.
    Nickname: Gregor the redemptor.
    Gender: Male.

    Background:
    _ Gregor and House Cronwell were intertwined with the major chains of event which would shape and influence the continent for centuries to come - the War of the Lurensian succession. The conflict broke out when a self-proclaimed claimant (together with their scions) of the ancient Elrian Kingdom's throne stepped out of the shadow, declaring their agenda: the restoration of the aforementioned ancient nation - with claimed domain of which would encompass the majority of all nations and sub-nations existed at that time in Lurensia. Needless to say that wouldn't sit well with many powers in Lurensia, to say the least.

    The war was a huge struggle to decide the fate of the entire continent, between the Pan-Lurensian Coalition (PLC) which sought to preserve the new order which had arisen after the El Explosion, and the ultra-reactionary Dominion of Elrian Secundus (DoES) which sought to restore the Elrian Kingdom, at the expense of the current presiding powers which were ruling over Luresnia. The conflicts saw the entire continent torn apart because of the wedge it drove between the powers which came from both sides, and even among the existing nations there were many splits and schisms which saw break away and defections to the other side - with scales ranging from elements of an fighting force to whole noble houses - and unfortunately House Cronwell was no exception.

    When the war had raged on for a while and the Coalition was having a slight upper hand, the infamous turncoat Vidkun Cronwell suddenly decided to drop all pretense and struck against PLC which House Cronwell initially sided with, the act which tipped the tide of war effort in DoES's favor. Vidkun led the backbone force of House Cronwell together with him to come to the service of his new allegiance - the Dominion. The rationale for this decision was because in the past, ancestors of House Cronwell used to swear an oath which offered their loyalty to the ancient Elrian Kingdom's throne, and so to honor the ancient oath which predated even the nation House Cronwell was serving at the time, and was further promised a higher position should DoES success, he effectively defected to DoES's side, bringing with him a large portion of House Cronwell's personnel.

    The part of House Cronwell which stayed loyal to the Coalition faced dangers of being punished because of the turncoats from their house, and needless to say they were looked at with suspicions, furthermore many loyal Cronwellian commanders were relieved of the ranks and positions they held in PLC's force. Wanting to redeem for the loss which the defectors had caused, the remaining Cronwells - led by Gregor, had resorted to a last ditch effort to get rid of the traitor, who was defending the Estellion fortress - House Cronwell's bastion which guarded a choke point with very high strategic values.

    Gregor mustered every force remained at his disposal, and further mobilizing his servants and peasants to join the storming of Estellion fortress. They were shorthanded and ill-equipped for such a daunting mission, but that was everything they had, since none of the allied forces were willing to join force with them. When they began to assault Estellion fortress, the majority of the fighting force was tasked with the role of frontal assault, serving as distraction for a second, much smaller elite force to secretly infiltrate Estellion. The infiltrating force split into two teams which infiltrated the fortress by scaling the walls and through secret tunnels underground, respectively.

    In short, the plan was a success, due in no small part to the cadre of 7 Kinaz swordmasters which formed the spearhead of the infiltrating team. They found and then kidnapped Vidkun and most of the turncoat force's honcho, and Gregor urged the captured people to order the soldiers under their command to surrender and throwing open the fortress's gates. Then most of the turncoat soldiers were pardoned and absorbed into loyal House Cronwell's ranks, but the turncoat's leaders were given to Pan-Lurensian Coalition's high command for trial.

    House Cromwell was partly vindicated and regained back some of the trusts from the Coalition.


    Name: Wolfhall Cronwell.
    Nickname: N/A.
    Gender: Male.

    Background:
    _ A lawyer and chief minister who served in the court of the monarch of Velder. Later on in his life he was wrongly accused, stripped of his occupations and titles, and was subsequently executed under the order of his liege - the king of Velder. Later on Wolfhall was vindicated when the true culprits of the conspiracy were detected and found guilty, and having had his honors restored, post-mortem.

      Name: Shin Lee
      Gender: Male
      Age (Base): 22
      Weapon: Knuckles

      Backstory:
      A monk of a renowned martial arts school from a remote part of Northern Fluone. During the demon invasions, his prefecture were ones affected later in the chaos but had many advantages being in its remote location. Otherwise I don't got much in the way of backstory yet.

      Gameplay:
      He is martial arts based character so his movement primarily focuses on an array of punches and picks. He's let floaty than Laby virtually none of his commands are multi hit. His Z attacks mainly focus on punches while his X attacks are mainly picks. A trait of his commands is that they are very easy to cancel, he is able to cancel out of practically any and every single one of his grounded attacks effortlessly.

      System: Chi
      His character system will be a Chi system. His gimmick is that you are able to activate Chi Power by pressing V, while this is activated you will be able to cycle between three different abilities. You can increase attack at the cost of defense, increase defense at the cost of speed, or increase speed at the cost of attack, the buff/debuff is typically +20%/-5%. However, in order to activate Chi in the first place, you need to build up Chi Energy. Much like Ara, Shin is able to cancel skills, doing so will typically net his +1~3 Chi Energy, for each energy you have, when activating Chi Power, it will last 6 seconds, up to a max of 5 energy or 30 seconds.

      Double on top of this, similar to Ara he too has a Secret Art system attained during job advancements. How these work is that some skills instead of gaining Chi Energy when canceled will take Chi Energy instead. If you chain certain skills and have enough Chi Energy to chain them, you will activate their Secret Art. 1st job arts will typically consume 3 Chi Energy and 2nd job will consume 5 Chi Energy.

      So Chi is a system which allow you to either buff yourself of consume it to perform Secret Arts.

      Job Paths:
      Monk > Combat Monk > Headmaster > Dragon Fist
      Type: Physical
      The hand to hand combat based class focused on melee attacks and inner Chi. This class is the one which furthers the use of Chi Power and increases its potency. One such way is that performing Secret Arts will activate a full powered version of Chi Power where all effects apply. This class has an animal based theme to its martial arts attacks.

      Monk > Spiritual Monk > Earth Rider > Great Sage
      Type: Physical
      This path takes a different approach and goes into he art of elemental attacks. This will be the more ranged oriented class. However these are elemental attacks tied into martial arts, like say Avatar the Last Airbender style. Despite being an elemental based class, it is still physical. No real advancement with the character system.

      Monk > Wrathful Monk > Dark Shaman > Death Master
      Type: Magical
      This class is a close range based magic class which focuses on Chi Energy, but in relation against opponents. This class hits hard but a lot of stuff revolves around consuming Chi to unlock their full potential. A main feature of the class is drawing in Chi Energy from enemies either through skills of combos. Additionally Chi Power in this class is more extreme with the benefits being higher but the debuffs also being higher.



      Name: Null
      Gender: Male
      Age (Base): ?
      Weapon: Mask

      Backstory:
      Once a normal demon roaming the barren wastelands of the Demon Realm, he came upon what appeared to by a mysterious masked corpse in the wastelands. Soon after investigating the decayed body he found what appeared to be a circus of some kind. Intruding the place in order seek refuge, he finds himself headed with the troupe's leader. An unsettling demon who bids him a contracts for immortality. In doing so, his soul was taken from his body and embedded into a single gem as his mind lied within the realm of dreams and nightmares. A primordial realm which bound subconsciously bound the living things of the Demon Realm beyond their understanding. This gem he has placed at the crown of his mask. Though his body still moved, it was merely a puppet husk. Imprinted into his soul was the desire to enact the will of the troupe, to seek through the material world to find places where the troupe may harvest souls to perpetuate their cycle.

      Gameplay:
      In his form, he is a showman. The backside of the mask if an empty void of darkness which is able to fire out tendrils to strike enemies. He is able to performs fits of magic, either with crimson red fire of the ability to bend reality with illusions.

      System: Nightmares
      As a being that exists within the realm of dreams and nightmare, he feasts off of the dreams of others. When successfully performing attacks, he is able to consume dreams and gradually becomes stronger, if felt idle, his powers slowly fade. When achieving certain checkpoints, he will receive various increases to his performance ranging from varying stat increases.

      Job Paths:
      Husk > Smiling Husk > Ringmaster > Nightmare King
      Type: Physical
      This path focuses on the use of his more circus like magic tricks and illusion attacks. This path features a lot of spikes creates from his cloak and reality distorting attacks.

      Husk > Laughing Husk > Earth Rider > Crimson Soul
      Type: Magical
      In this path he is still just as much a showman as his other, however he has a distinct focus on the crimson fire based attacks. This class is all about barrages and spectacle. This class also features Flame Kin, familiars born from fire which assist it.

      Husk > Broken Husk > Void Marionette > Given Form
      Type: Physical
      In this path, his body deteriorates and the shadows which comprises his soul's form fill in the cracks. The body becomes a vessel for the dark void and with it, it becomes a weapon in itself which can expel the darkness is wild uncontrolled fits.

        Not at all. Don't even play or keep up with League other than the occasional outsider looking in.

      Samar, The Guard



      Lore
      : A young dark elf living in Varnimyr. When war threatened to come to their lands, he joined Chloe in the invasion of Elrios. But the invasion failed. His own bow destroyed, his allies dead, and his commander missing, Samar only has a number of scavenged chakrams for weapons. Now, trapped in another world and with only enemies around him, he sets out to find a way home.

      Appearance: Your standard dark elf, but make him a male teenager with a slightly customized uniform. And wears shoes. The picture above is Griff from Recettear. Take off the glasses, make him a little younger, remove the claws, and change the color of his shirt into gray, and there you have it!

      Age: Younger than Rena, he's just reached adulthood in Dark Elf society. Still much older than the rest of the human cast.

      Character System: Much like Rena, Samar has a close connection with the spirits, leaning more towards the more nocturnal and dark side of nature. Alongside this, his time with the Glitters has taught him the value of discipline with his resources and movements. His Midnight system is a reflection of these two characteristics.

      Samar's system is represented by a bar underneath the MP bar. Using actives or special actives fills this bar with Spectral Energy. When the bar is filled, a spectral owl manifests that circles around Samar, dealing damage to all enemies without knockdown or hit stun. The owl recovers a lot of MP per hit. Samar's attack speed, critical chance, maximize, and MP gain are increased during this time. The bar will slowly drain while the owl is active.

      During Awakening, two owls will appear and circle much faster, and the bar drains much more slowly.

      Job Paths:

      Heavy Guard -> Huscarl -> Varangian Guard

      In which Samar finds his chakrams too small for bigger foes, so he forges a bigger set of chakrams and later, chakrams set on demonic fire.

      Shadow Guard -> Janissary -> Secret Service

      Where Samar decides that stealth is the best way to protect his allies. That, and a lot of dark magic.

      Scout Guard -> Hussar -> Cataphract

      Where Samar trains for long-ranged combat, and later finds a baby Nephilim that he raises with love and care. Translation: It becomes a killing machine.


      Weapon: Samar primarily uses chakrams, partly modified to have handles in the center so he can use them in melee. The Heavy Guard path adds a few very large ones. The Shadow Guard path sticks to the normal chakrams but makes them extra sharp. The Scout Guard path also uses normal chakrams, but he fights alongside a young Nephilim named Dot.

      Combos:

      zzzz - Slash three times, the fourth attack is a downward slice that knocks down.
      xxxx - Three throws with the chakram, followed by throwing two chakrams that knock down.
      zzzxx - Two slashes, followed by a swipe that pushes enemies away and throwing two chakrams.
      xxz - Two chakram throws, then a lunge.
      ^z - single jump swipe..
      ^x - single jump throw
      >>zz - running dive into a slashing uppercut that launches.
      >>xx - roll behind target and throw an chakram
      >>^z - While in midair, slash with the chakram.
      >>^xx - While in midair, backflip upwards and throw a chakram diagonally forward.

        Vinca Inore

        "Hmph. You can't match me."
        ⚜ General Information
        SPOILERName: Vinca Inore (pronounced: vin-kah ee-noh-ray)
        Color: Periwinkle
        Class:
        Magus
        Weapon: Relic Sceptre, Advanced Magic
        Gender:

        Age: 18(base) → 20(1st class) → 21(2nd class) → 23(3rd class)
        Birthday: December 1st (
        )
        Blood Type: O+
        Height: 5'6" (167.6cm)
        Weight: 120lbs (54.4kg)


        [A young scholar who's mastered his family's Arcane Magic.]
        A young magician who can sweep enemies with intricate displays of advanced magic, including the “Arcane Arts” of the noble Inore Family.

        Special Ability/System: Arcane Wisdom (W.I.P)
        Having mastered the Inore Arcane Arts at the young age of 13 proved that Vinca was more than capable of wielding them responsibly. Much like Ara and her Skill-Chaining abilities, Vinca can link his spells together so long as the second spell is cast before the first one ends. Doing so allows for Vinca to overwhelm his opponents with a continuous stream of spells (so long as his MP allows for it), all while preventing KD. Casting certain spells together in a specific order also allow Vinca to perform an “Arcane Art.” A shortcut to this would be the have the first stance of an Art by registered into Vinca’s skill slots and repeatedly press whichever skill key it’s set to so long as Vinca has already learned all the necessary stances. Naturally, some Arts prove to be stronger than others, but some Arts remain undocumented from the Inore Family’s records, meaning that Vinca can improvise and perform an Arcane Art that is “unrecorded” and, therefore, one of his own making. The only downside to performing unrecorded Arcane Arts is that they can’t be chained together through the aforementioned shortcut of repeatedly pressing whichever skill key the first stance had been set to. The only way to activate an unrecorded Art that way would be if Vinca doesn’t know all the steps for the officially documented Art but knows all the steps for the unrecorded one.
        Using his Relic Scepter, Vinca can store a bit of magic from the spells he casts inside of it to power up others at a later point. Stored magic can be seen in a third bar that runs under his MP bar which is segmented into 11 points. Stored Magic Points or SMP are accumulated each time Vinca successfully performs a spell and lands a hit and is depleted by casting either an Arcane Art, a spell which automatically depletes some to power up, or a spell specifically designed to release it all. The Relic Scepter will also become fully charged with magic upon Awakening but, during this time, Vinca can only use skills that use the stored magic.
        His hyperactive skills also remain unaffected by any magic boosts they’d otherwise receive from depleting SMP.


        Personality
        Vinca is an incredibly prideful and cold young man. Being the first in a generation to be successful in casting the Inore Family’s Arcane Arts and having mastered the act by a young age has caused Vinca to develop a deeply-rooted belief that he is superior to those around him; his own family included. He views bonds—familial, platonic, romantic—and the people they’re tied to all as “tools” that exist solely to help propel him towards greater and greater successes, and he has maintained this view ever since he was but a child. Though he can hold respect for some, can think of others as “less expendable,” and can generally mask this view from those around him, Vinca genuinely fears this strange detachment he has and believes that it’s the one thing he can admit to being a mistake—something he’s missing. In the few instances where Vinca allows himself to struggle with that part of his personality, he’ll often question the feelings that spring up from such distress.
        Because casting arcane spells requires perfect pronunciation and precise movements, and will backfire horribly if either is done wrong, Vinca has become a stickler for correct pronunciation, even with things outside of his studies. He’ll critique and belittle people for mispronouncing words and terms but does very little to correct his own mispronunciations unless he’s stuck trying to pronounce a word he can’t seem to get it out, like with the word “watermelon.”
        Vinca also holds a distinct disdain for the Landar Family, who are hailed as the most impressive group of magic-users to ever exist. He sees them as nothing more than roadblocks to his own personal success, especially since many magicians idolize the Landars and strive to be like them rather than to break the mold they had set. Just hearing someone mention the Landar Family name can make Vinca enraged, causing him to be harsher and more condescending than he typically is, and he’s set to become even more vicious whenever he’s stuck in the presence of a living Landar themselves. The only other person to set Vinca off this much is his step-father, Forrim, whom he views as “a being below leeches and pests.”


        Background

        Vinca was born into the Inore Family, a relatively wealthy and fairly respected family of magic-users in Velder, as the only son to his parents Ron and Cea Inore. Though Vinca’s family consisted of many impressive magic-users, none compared to that of his grandfather, Catharan Inore, who stood as one of the most skillful and powerful wizards in the Velder region in his day. Both the family’s reputation and the legacy left behind by Catharan made Vinca believe that he was destined for greatness—that he was born to surpass his grandfather and stand above all other magic-users in the whole of Elrios. Though he respected his parents for being competent spell-casters, Vinca, at his core, saw them as stepping stones to his peak.
        And so, at a very young age, Vinca began studying all the magical tomes, books and scrolls his family could offer, and took off at seemingly astonishing speeds. He excelled at nearly everything he studied and practiced to the point where his parents, peers and anyone else who was aware of the Inore family name was convinced that he could become a powerful magician. As he received praise and encouragement from his parents for his continued excellence, Vinca’s beliefs were further cemented into his being.
        He was meant for greatness.
        He was meant to surpass Catharan.
        He was meant to soar beyond his family name and become the personification of excellence with his name and his name alone. Even with rising tensions and the destabilizing of Velder’s upper class as a result of the ensuing civil war, Vinca remained absorbed in his studies, during which he uncovered his family’s “Arcane Arts”: powerful spells performed through precise movements in very specific sequences that his grandfather was the last to use.
        As Vinca moved on to mastering these “Arcane Arts,” his father, Ron, had volunteered himself in the war effort and left behind his wife and child. Vinca didn’t understand why he would choose to do such a thing but respected his father enough to not belittle his decision. Sadly, the next time Vinca would see his father would be in a casket as one of the many casualties of the civil war. Though Vinca didn’t let his father’s death deter him from his studies, him continuing to close himself off in pursuit of mastering the family’s Arcane Arts left his mother, Cea, all alone with no one else to help her grieve.
        By the time he had turned thirteen, Vinca had managed to master casting pieces of the intricate spells and could seamlessly chain-cast them together. However, his successes were hampered by another terrible force: a sleazy man with no useful skills named Forrim Coetann, who had begun to romance Cea as she stood as nothing more than a shell of her formerly vibrant self. Vinca could tell from the start that Forrim was a detestable man who only wished to take his mother’s hand in marriage to become an Inore and “gain” all the respect and prestige the name still carried. Unfortunately, about a year later, Forrim was successful as Cea had chosen to marry him. To make matters worse, news of a young prodigious magician began circling the kingdom.
        Vinca could tell immediately that he was starting to get nowhere. Though he learned more and more of his family’s Arcane Arts, this prodigious little upstart’s name kept reaching his ears, and Forrim kept attempting to worm his way into his good graces. It was becoming clear that his home stood as nothing more than a distraction—a hamper to his success—so Vinca made the decision to leave the kingdom for the faraway territory of Elder to continue his studies in peace.

        Warcry: The Black Fleet is the strongest.

        Motto: There are decades when days happen, and there are days when decades happen.

        Banner:
        _ Black colored background, at the center is a silver colored raven spreading wings, its head facing toward the left. Inside the silver colored raven symbol there is a black colored cogwheel, and the raven on the banner also has three legs compared to the usual two, 2 legs on its left and right sides, and an extra leg between its left and right legs.

        Compostions:
        _ As least 2 known battleships, named the Bendigeidfran and the Guntram.
        _ Rifle platoons.
        _ Shock troop squads (mélee).

        Background:
        After having defeated King Nasod and his forces, Raven Cronwell reformed the The Meritorious Service of Black Crow Privateers Force into the Black Crow Force. When Raven departed together with El gang, he told the Black Crow Force that one day he would be back to lead them, and arranged a deal so that in the meantime the Black Crow Force would be employed by the Ponggos at Altera, protecting and transporting the Ponggos while in turn the Ponggos would provide them with food, spare parts and supplies.

        Raven also changed the name of The Black Crow battleship to the Bendigeidfran, though people still occasionally refer to the vessel under its original name when mentioning the vessel from time to time.

        Black Crow Force (continue):

        Black Crow Force's Special Operation unit:

        Official name: Alfa Libertadores.

        Codename: The revolutionary sword.

        Motto: Where Alfa arrives, compromise ends.

        Compositions:
        _ The most elite unit of Black Crow force, composed of veteran troops primarily drawn from the rank and file of frontline combat soldiers (rifle and shock troops) who have distinguished themselves in battles, and then given further special trainings. Troops who have passed all of those requirements will be introduced into the unit.

        _ They are equipped with the special equipment reserved only for the unit, with the Mechanized power armors as the centerpiece of them all.

        Background:
        Raven and Black Crow force found out about the armories in Wally's secret facility - the underground complex at Elder. They looted for usable equipment and war materials, including several mechanical exoskeleton suits, called the Mechanized power armor. Raven and his force sought to put them into good use, which further augmented the strength of Black Crow force.

        A new military detatchment was formed, named the Alfa Libertadores, with members chosen from the most excellent troops among the force. The Mechanized power armor provided excellent power-to-weight ratio, great protection and enhanced strength. Not only it could shrug off damages which would have killed a soldier several times over, it also allowed soldiers wearing it to carry with them a huge weight, far higher than the amount they could carry in normal conditions.

        The application of the Mechanized suits made Alfa Libertadores the pinnacle of heavy infantries, who could carry and employ heavy weaponry individually, and at the same time would be extremely well protected compared to the more conventional infantries who went without advanced protections from power armors, all the while retaining the mobility and flexibility of foot soldiers.

        Formations:
        _ The Alfa Libertadores soldiers could fight together in the same unit as a whole, which would form a nearly unstoppable formation which excelled in both offense and defense.

        _ Alternatively the Alfa soldiers could serve as a force multiplier, fighting alongside other types of troops, and boosting the total effectiveness and survivalbility of the whole force; moreover different types of troops would be able to cover the disadvantages of each others.

        _ Alfa soldiers could also operate in the manner of small units with 3 soldiers each - called a cell. The cells would be expected to carry out, in secrecy, the much more demanding missions than ordinary, operating with much greater autonomy and over a quite lengthy duration. Usually the harder and more daunting the mission is, the more Alfa cells would be dispatched to ensure the mission could be completed.

          I have made several references regarding Kinaz School in some of my articles in this thread, as well as in my fictional works since years before. So this time I will give the organization its own article.


          Kinaz School:

          The Kinaz School could trace its origin to an ancient organization founded in Nasod Rebellion - the Killing-Nasod Zealots (KNZ) unit. The renowed Zealots was originally established as a military unit which allied itself with the pan-human front in the war. The majority of its members were orphans whose parents were dead soldiers and civilians alike, they volunteered to join the unit, with a burning hatred for the enemies of humanity.

          Over the course of the war they had fought with such ferocity, tenacity and courage which made them famous, all to achieve a single purpose: the survival of human race. They were much sought after by human forces and had fought in many battles that ultimately culminated in the pyrrhic and costly victory of the human faction...

          Their original main combat capabilities were under the form of a sophisticated system of martial arts formulated specificially to liquidate the Nasods. Compared to other more conventional forces which leaned more toward brute strength, the Zealots dedicated much of its efforts in psychological and philosophical trainings, sought to cultivate the innate strength of human minds and through that surpassing human's limits.

          After the Nasod War was over, the few survivors of the Killing-Nasod Zealots, after having served their role in shaping history, had reorganized the organization into its new form of a martial arts school. Because the threats of Nasods were over, the name of the organization had become obsoleted, and the leader of the organization at the time had combined the first letters of the words which made up the name of Killing-Nasod Zealots into a name for the newly founded martial arts school - the Kinaz School.

          Virtually every leader of the school has followed the tradition of setting a honorary title upon becoming leader which reflects their status and feats.

          House Cronwell has a tradition of maintaining a mutual relation with Kinaz School, and often employing warriors trained by Kinaz School.


          Incomplete list of leaders of Kinaz School/Killing-Nasod Zealots unit:

          Name: n/a.
          Codename: Roboticide.
          Gender: male.
          Rank: Leader.
          Occupation: Founder and first leader of the KNZ, military officer of human's force.
          + Armaments:
          _ Pulse-swords.
          _ Energy shield (a type of protective energy field shrouding the wearer).
          _ EMP grenades.

          Background:
          The first leader of KNZ who operated under the codename "Roboticide". Almost nothing was known about him prior to his life before he established Killing-Nasod Zealots. Because of his importance, the millitary had classified his name and most of his identities, and then after the war was concluded, unfortunately the archives containing Roboticide's identities were permanently lost in process, together with a giant chunk of total human knowledge in general.

          Roboticide was responsible for inventing the philosophy of the KNZ and having invented up to one third of the techniques which the Kinaz apprentices still learns and employs even after hundreds of years. He trained and wisely led his disciplines in combat, and his personal combat capabilities were fabled.

          He lost his life in an event that marked the turning point of the war: the Fall of Krai. Krai was the largest military base of human force, which was extremely essential to the pan-human faction.The base was extremely well protected, it could take on a very strong force being thrown against it. But they had never accounted for the Nasod's most intricately planned and coordinated offensive ever, which involved 80% of the total strength of Nasod's air force and also airlifted an approximately 34% of Nasod's total ground force, their total force was divided into multiple waves of assault and evacuation.

          The Nasods were determined to obliterate Krai, but against the overwhelming odds, humans put up a fierce resistances to the bitter end nevertheless.

          Roboticide single-handedly destroyed 9 of the enemy's infamous SHAWNs (Super Heavy Armored Walker Nasod) before finally succumbed, a feat unrivaled by anyone else up until that point. With that, it could be said that Roboticide had lived up to the meaning of his codename...


          Name: Ng. Long.
          Codename: Charlie.
          Gender: Male.
          Rank: Leader.
          Occupation: second leader of the KNZ, military officer of human's force.
          + Armaments:
          _ Mechanical gauntlets (a type of technological gauntlet with retractable metal claws which were shrouded with anti-material energy field).
          _ Stealth field (a type of protective energy field which also helped to hide the wearer from being detected).
          _ EMP grenades.

          Background:
          One of Roboticide's most excellent disciplines. He was captured alive in the Fall of Krai, apparently the Nasods wanted to use him to learn as much of Killing-Nasod Zealots' techniques as possible, so that they could find a way to neutralize those. However Long managed to escape his captivity before the Nasods could make much use of him, and trekked all the way back to human's line - a feat which amazed human force's high command.

          At that point human force in general and the KNZ had suffered major losses from previous Nasod's offensives. A staggering amount of roughly 70% Zealots members were either killed or missing in action by that time, forcing the unit to change their modus operandi to fit the new situations and minimizing the attrition rate which they could afford no longer.

          Ng. Long devised a plan to wage a guerilla war, utilizing small units, emphasizing hit-and-run maneuvers, stealthiness and mobility of the units. The new doctrine served KNZ perfectly, as well as helping them to survive.

          With that, Long himself was never captured by the Nasods again. Rather it was the global ecological collapse disaster resulted from the El Crystal shutdown incident that killed him...


          Name: Mei Lin.
          Honorable title: Risorgimento.
          Gender: Female.
          Rank: Leader.
          Occupation: founder of Kinaz School.
          + Armaments:
          _ Sword.
          _ Gauntlet.

          Background:
          Mei Lin was both Roboticide's and Long's student, respectively. She made a name for herself in the scouring campaign against remnants of Nasod force, in the aftermaths of the war.

          After the conflict was over, instead of disbanding the KNZ, it was Mei Lin who sought to preserve the legacy of the fabled Killing-Nasod Zealots unit, by reorganizing it into the Kinaz school, which marked a new era of transtitioning from a military organization to a civilian one, diverting priorities from robot-killing techniques to techniques which helped combating other types of threats, improving and inventing new techniques in process...

              First time posting anything in these forums, but I am an active fanfic author on Fanfiction.net. I am probably late to the party, but I still thought it'd be fun to bring out the OCs of one of my oldest and longest planned series of future works. I'm completely lost with all the new lore, so you might as well consider the characters below part of an AU.
              Lara Tureen

              Name: Lara Tureen

              Weapon of Choice: Dyrnwyrn (an enchanted elven rapier)

              Gender: Female

              Race: Half-elf (human/dark elf)

              City of birth: Resiam

              Height: 175cm (5 feet, 8 inches)

              Occupation: Blacksmith (former)

              Appearance: Lara Tureen is a young woman who appears to be in her mid-twenties but, because of the elven blood in her veins, she has lived for much longer (at least twice as much as Horatio). Her hair is a dark brown, which she keeps at shoulder-length and tied in a ponytail. She has a bit of a muscular figure due to her occupation, but the traits of her face are as delicate as any other woman's. Her blue eyes shine easily with her emotions, so she is unintentionally a very straight-forward person.

              Backstory: Born to a family of blacksmiths who could not have a male heir, Lara was expected to eventually take over the family business. Under the strict guidance of her father, Lara learnt how to infuse weapons with elven rune enchantments. Because of this, Lara's craftsmanship soon gathered the attention of various Fluonian mercenary guilds and even the Senacian military. That is how she met Horatio, who -at the time- worked for the Red Knights as a young blacksmith. There, her skill with the rapier she inherited from her father did not go unnoticed and although she was offered to become part of the infantry division, she never agreed to it. Because she was only a young girl at the time, her relationship with Horatio and the other blacksmiths associated to the Red Knights was closer to the one between two siblings and it remained that way until Lara's retirement to work as an independent blacksmith in her native Resiam. There, she took an apprentice (Reijak Asini) to train so she could finally retire and devote herself to form a family with her husband, Darhan Irisse.

              Unfortunately, her quiet life was cut short when the demons raided her native town during the night. Although she fought with all her might to protect her family, she could not escape the demons' claws.


              Reijak Asini

              Name: Reijak Asini (Rei-jack Ah-see-nii)

              Weapon of Choice: Ignis Lupus (enchanted fire sabre)

              Race: Human

              City of birth: Feita

              Gender: Male

              Height: 178cm (5 feet, 10 inches)

              Age: 24

              Occupation: Knight of the Centurion Guard (former), Blacksmith (apprentice)

              Appearance: Reijak Asini, though almost identical to his younger brother Lento, is 5 cm (2 inches) shorter than him. Reijak keeps his hair shorter than his brother, always combed completely back from his face, mostly because of Lara's insistence about it. Before, he had bangs over his forehead and held his long hair in a low bun.

              Backstory: As the firstborn of the Asini household, Reijak was expected to be the heir to his father's noble title and lands as well as being an exceptional knight. Reijak himself set himself to rise through the military ranks the moment he was old enough to join the Centurion Guard. His resolve was put to the test at the height of the Velder Civil war, where he was put at the head of a scouting unit. Though he led them safely for most of the path, on their return, Reijak decided to stray from course to save some civilians. That revealed their position to the rebel troops, who made their escape to safety almost impossible. His actions saved the lives of four civilians but at the cost the life of one of his subordinates. The Centurion Guard's court-martial judged his actions decided to revoke his position as a lieutenant and he was forced to come home to an angered father and a brother who had not only shown more talent for the sword than him but became a lieutenant himself only two months after Reijak was expelled. His father rewrote his will so the heir was Lento and gave Reijak two months to leave his native town. With no ties or claims to Feita nor the Velderian Kingdom, Reijak used the last ED tied to his name and travelled to Fluone, where he searched for a job where he could. His search was fruitless for the first two months, given that the adventurer and mercenary guilds knew of his actions and their policy prevented them to hire a knight proven guilty by a court-martial. One night, he met Lara Tureen in a Tavern where he was drinking his last coins and, after he told her his story over one too many drinks, she accepted to take him in as an apprentice. She told him, however, that if he failed to learn how to do a good job two months from that day, that she would expel him. With a new-found hope, Reijak trained rigorously under Lara's guidance. The night of the demon raid, he finished his first weapon: a sabre he named Ignis Lupus. As he rushed out of the workshop to show proudly his work the next day, the demons attacked. On instinct, he took charge of a family passing by and swore to protect them, just like he did during the rebellion. Out of the five thousand inhabitants of Resiam, only he made it out to safety in Hamel.

              Darhan Irisse


              Name: Darhan Irisse (Dar-haan Eye-re-suh)

              Weapon of Choice: Chulainn (lost enchanted elven spear), elven martial arts

              Race: Dark elf

              City of Birth: Sirian (capital of the Myrrhian Kingdom)

              Gender: Male

              Height: 187cm (6 feet, 1 inch)

              Occupation: Royal Guard of the Myrrhian Kingdom (former), Alchemist (current)

              Appearance: Darhan has long, silver hair he combs in a traditional elven style (like Tolkien's elves). He has golden eyes, which is rare even among the purest of dark elves. Though he was much more muscular when he was an elite spearman, he still works out to keep himself fit. While most people know he has lived for centuries, he looks to be in his mid-thirties and always dresses soberly.

              Background: While most dark elves were banished to the Demon Realm by Elria, two societies were allowed to continue to exist in Elrios: the Myrrhian Kingdom and the Resiam Empire. The former occupied the modern-day Feita and Velder region. The biggest temple, the roads and the aqueducts that were once part of the capital are still used by the Velderian kingdom and became important landmarks of the small town of Feita. Darhan was born to a noble family of Myrrh, trained for as long as he can remember to master spiritual magic, alchemy and armed combat: all so he could inherit the family's ancestral weapon. When the Debrians development of Nasod technology broke out, the Myrrhian Kingdom became the battlefront of the bloody combat that unfolded for half a century. When the situation seemed hopeless, Darhan was ordered by the royal family to seek the help of the Resiam Empire. That mission might have been what saved him from seeing the Nasod King bomb his kingdom to the ground. While some elves from Myrrh survived, none of the nobility had the same luck. Because of this, the Empire welcomed him with open arms and hired him as a knight of their forces. After the El Explosion scarred the continent with war again, however, the Resiam Empire was brought down by a coup, most nobles killed or imprisoned for life. Darhan managed to convince the rebels to spare his life in exchange of disposing of his weapon. Though he agreed with a heavy heart, he kept his mind busy by using his skills in alchemy to treat their injured and the sick. He continued with his job ever since and all local thieves avoid his shop because of his known past as a veteran and tactician. He met Lara during one of the dances organized during the Night of Light. They soon got along and, after some years, got married. During the night the demons raided the town, he had woken up earlier due to a nightmare. Once he saw the first demons approach, he quickly woke his wife up and used every elemental orb, enchanted scroll and magic he had at his disposal to help her get out. Yet, his efforts were not enough to the sheer numbers of demon soldiers that kept coming.

                  Change to Samar's Midnight System

                  Before: Samar's system is represented by a bar underneath the MP bar. Using actives or special actives fills this bar with Spectral Energy. When the bar is filled, a spectral owl manifests that circles around Samar, dealing damage to all enemies without knockdown or hit stun. The owl recovers a lot of MP per hit. Samar's attack speed, critical chance, maximize, and MP gain are increased during this time. The bar will slowly drain while the owl is active.

                  During Awakening, two owls will appear and circle much faster, and the bar drains much more slowly.


                  After: Samar's system is represented by a bar underneath the MP bar. Using actives or special actives fills this bar with Spectral Energy. When the bar has 100 Spectral Energy, Samar gains +3 MP recovery and a small boost to his attack speed. However, pressing V will unleash a burst of energy forward (Spectral Burst) as well as give Samar increased MP Gain and +3% Physical/Magical attack for 5 seconds. Spectral Burst uses the entire bar and has a cooldown of 20 seconds. He cannot gain the MP recovery and attack speed boost while Spactral Burst is on cooldown, though he can still gain Spectral Energy.

                    Below I will explain and list inspirations or sources of references which I used to create the characters/institutions/organizations above. These are stuffs I think need explaining:


                    _ The Crow Mercenary Knight Company's warcry "Victorus aut Mortis" is a Latin (technically a language called High Gothic in Warhammer 40000's universe) quote which translates to "Victory or Death" in English, source: https://warhammer40k.fandom.com/wiki/Raven_Guard. I chose that quote because of the foreshadowing meanings of its content (when at the end the CMKC didn't win, they were slaughtered to a man).


                    _ Raven's abilities of Fingerspitzengefühl and coup d'oeil are German and French loanwords, which describe natural abilities of commanders which are intuitive. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fingerspitzengef%C3%BChl and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coup_d%27%C5%93il , respectively.


                    _ Esprit de corps : French for morale (of military units).


                    _ Equestrian skills: skills of the riders on horseback.


                    _ Lysander's epithet of "Schwerpunkt" is a German term which has no English equivalent, its rough translation is the "center of gravity" or "crucial point", which is an extremely important concept in Germany's military doctrines and military science.


                    _ The motto of The Meritorious Service of Black Crow Privateers Force, "Nemo mea poena effugit" is a Latin (again, High Gothic in-universe) quote, with meanings explained below:

                    Source: https://warhammer40k.fandom.com/wiki/Legio_Honorum

                    "...And the name of the Order shall be the Death Bolts, and their Forge World shall be Esteban VII. The Colours of the Death Bolts shall be red over gold. Their banner shall be quartered, gold against chequered blue and silver, bounded red. Their badge shall be a crossbow bolt ordinary, over an inverse triangle gold. The Grand Master of their founding shall be Maxen Vledig, and their motto shall be "nemo mea poena effugit" - None may escape my vengeance."

                    — From the foundation charter of the Legio Honorum Titan Legion, Collegia Titanica.
                    _ House Cronwell's motto "Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears" is a line in Book of Joel (Joel 3:10 - KJV). Reference source: https://biblehub.com/joel/3-10.htm


                    _ The Black Crow Force's battleships are named so that they still retain the theme naming senses (having crow, raven and overall avian themes in it ) of forces led by Raven:

                    + Bendigeidfran is Welsh for "Blessed Crow" or "Holy Raven", which follows the patterns of its original name (The Black Crow), source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Br%C3%A2n_the_Blessed

                    + Guntram is ancient German for "War Raven" or "Battle Raven", source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guntram


                    Simple as that, folks. If there is anything else you don't understand please feel free to ask, I will help you with it. xD
                    Trivia (continue):

                    Continuing explaining stuffs and my references/sources of inspirations:

                    _ First, let's start with the House Cronwell. It was heavily inspired by the 5-star Cronwell Resort Sermilia in Psakoudia, Greece - oh, who am I kidding - what else can it be other than the historical House Cromwell: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cromwell_family

                    You can find the heraldry of House of Cromwell in this list: https://www.europeanheraldry.org/uni...es/families-f/

                    (But you should have already figured that out by yourselves, maybe as early as back when Raven's side story was released since years ago - like me... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

                    Of course the inspirations didn't merely stop at the namesakes. The character who was named Wolfhall Cronwell for example, his name was inspired by the title of a BBC's tv series named "Wolf Hall" which featured Thomas Cromwell as the male lead character.



                    So yeah you got the idea, my character Wolfhall's backstory was heavily inspired by Thomas's backgrounds. House Cromwell irl also having a member named Gregory (son of the aforementioned Thomas Cromwell), but I came up with the name of my character Gregor Cronwell indepedently, and my Gregor character didn't share the story with the Gregory guy irl.

                    Regarding the character Nika Cronwell, initially I intended for the character to be male named Nicholas/Nikolai instead. Then after having done writing 3 characters above, I suddenly wanted to add a female character, but the backstories of Wolfhall and Gregor didn't fit a female character at all, so I changed Nicholas to Nika and changing the character's gender to female.

                    Why Nika you ask? Nika (Nίκα) is a Greek word and name which means "winning, victory". The names Nicholas (meaning "victory of the people") and Nika are both originated from the name of an ancient Greek goddes named Nike.


                    _ Next, the name of the self-proclaimed successors of ancient Elrian Kingdom (having long defunct) and their faction: Dominion of Elrian Secundus. Secundus is a Latin word which means "the second".

                    There is also another Cronwell which I forgot to mention - Vidkun Cronwell. The character was based on Vidkun Quisling - an extremely infamous collaborator of the Axis in World War 2 who was head of Norway's government and cooperated closely with Germany in the war.


                    _ Next we would examine the Alfa Libertadores. Alfa is the equivalent of the letter A in NATO phonetic alphabet which was also based on the first letter of Greek alphabet - Alpha (of course). Libertadores (plural of libertador) is a Spanish word which means "liberators".


                    _ Finally the Kinaz School. Tbh at first when I wrote about the Kinaz School since years ago, it was just a shout out to the Ginaz School in Dune series, while I have only came up with the true meaning behind the name Kinaz recently. My fanfictions also have many Dune references as well, kudos to you if you can find them.

                    Ginaz was a planet made famous for its Swordmasters.

                    [...]The world had long been inhabited by a small but ferocious culture of warrior humans. These people played an important role during the Butlerian Jihad, where they fought as mercenaries in close combat against the thinking machines.
                    Source: https://dune.fandom.com/wiki/Ginaz

                    _ Roboticide means "the killing of a robot". I first learned of it from Isaac Asimov's "The Robot of Dawn".

                    _ Risorgimento is an Italian word which means "rising again".

                      Black Crow Force (continue):

                      Black Crow Force's RAID unit:

                      Official name: Rapid Airborne Insertion & Deployment.

                      Codename (newly set after King Nasod’s death): The revolutionary bayonet.

                      Compositions:

                      _ Composed of Black Crow's best shock troops who are armed with and utilizing melee weapons, and also a smaller portion of the soldiers armed with firearms. They are specialized in close combat, conducting ambushes, stealth and mobility.

                      _ Beside standard melee weapons such as swords, bayonets, falchions... and small arms, they are also equipped with non lethal explosives such as smoke grenades and flash bang grenades. Their gas masks make them immunized to the smokes generated by smoke grenades, as well as effects from their flash grenades.

                      _ RAID also possessing soldiers and engineers who are well trained in machineries, so that they can control, repair and piloting the vessels which they have managed to capture.

                      Background:

                      _ The unit called the RAID (acronym of Rapid Airborned Insertion & Deployment) was the first specialized infantry unit of the Black Crow Meritorious Service, and then later the Black Crow Force.

                      _ RAID's main functions are performing raids and conducting boarding activities, taking control of and/or crippling enemy's vessels, guarding Black Crow's vessels from hostile boarding forces...

                      _ Because of the main combat environments which RAID operating in (inside flying vessels), they are primarily equipped with melee weapons, simply because utilizing firearms can cause much collateral damages to the surrounding interiors of the ships which they are on, which in turn can cause the machines inside the ships to break and malfunction, and may even leading to those ships losing control and then crash landing.

                      _ At the time Raven and Black Crows were under control of King Nasod, RAID was established by Raven as the force's boarding unit, which directly carrying out raiding activities of vessels and then robbing goods which those vessels carry, for the rest of the force.

                      _ Beside tasks such as assisting other units, guarding and boarding flying ships, RAID is also highly effective in enclosed combat environments with lots of obstacle, and observations are generally limited, such as dense forests/jungles... which are where they can stalk and ambush their enemies effectively, or simply closing in before enemies could detect them.
