Midnight Monarchs by chesterocampo Midnight Monarchs by chesterocampo
A PRINCESS, A KNIGHT, AND A SORCERER

In the aftermath of the 7-year long Battle of Kazkhan, an all-out war between the kingdoms Abyssinia and Cordonne, Cordonne's victory is short-lived as their King is found brutally murdered in his bedchamber. What follows is a series of clandestine events that unite a princess, a knight and a sorcerer to solve their King's mysterious demise…

Princess
Goes underground after her father, the King of Cordonne is murdered. The brooch she wears in her hair was a gift from the Monarch of Abyssinia 10 years ago, in an inter-kingdom banquet for the Pact of Peace between Abyssinia and Cordonne. She refuses to let it go, this symbol of a life she once had and a peace her father had once believed achievable. Armed with the Cusp of Monarchs, the sacred sword of the Cordonne Royal Bloodline, she seeks to unravel the mystery of her father's death.

Knight
Served in the Battle of Kazkhan as an Armada Commandant of Cordonne's Elite Unit. Three years into the Battle of Kazkhan, the Knight is severely wounded. Disillusioned with the War, the Knight turns to skypiracy for several years. During the closing year of the Battle of Kazkhan, the King of Cordonne pleads for the Knight to return to the kingdom, this time as the blossoming Princess' retainer and mentor. When the King was murdered, the Knight immediately took the Princess underground, fearing that she would be the killer's next target.

Sorcerer
One-time Royal Adviser and long-time friend of the King of Cordonne, the Sorcerer was vehemently against the war between Abyssinia and Cordonne. His stand against the war cost him not only his position as Royal Adviser, but also strained his friendship with the King. Speculators say that the Sorcerer was against the war because the battleground was his homeland of Kazkhan; but the Sorcerer maintains that the conflict might have been averted had the King practiced lenient diplomacy. Now, the day after the King is murdered, the King's daughter stands on his doorstep, asking for his help to exact vengeance.

I love the art, but as a writer I’m more intrigued with were the story could lead. Either way, both tell a compelling story.

Superb work Elpinoy, a brilliant piece you have made. The knight looks great in the light garb, with the claws, fire and both sword and pistol do make him striking in the group. The sorcerer is strange in a good way, the clothes are fitting, the ears and facial build add to the mystic. The princess herself does have a good look to her, complimented in a odd way by the blade.

Well done, keep it up.
