It is currently WINTER in WESTEROS during the year 303 AC. The new moon cycle marks a full twenty years since the Mad King was murdered, and his son King Rhaegar ascended the Iron Throne in his place. Though the year is fresh, war in the Narrow Sea has been declared on the Stepstones, and the Long Night continues to beckon from the Northern fringes of the Seven Kingdoms. With the Queen Lyanna presumed dead, the citizens of the realms look only to each other for survival.

Fire

and Blood

Aegon Targaryen


Prince of Dragonstone
The Red Prince

The only remnant left of Princess Elia of Dorne, Aegon remains nearly the mirror image of his father Rhaegar. His life as an infant had been precarious, if not entirely life threatening, for the Mad King was soon whispering things about taking him hostage, if only to lure Rhaegar out from hiding during the War of the Seven. Instead, not even two weeks after he was born, Elia's uncle and Kingsguard Lewyn Martell, Sword of the Morning Arthur Dayne, Master of Laws Jon Connington and the Spider Lord Varys had him separated from his mother... smuggling Elia out of the palace in one direction, and Aegon in another. Taken to Griffin's Roost and kept in hiding with Jon, Elia was taken to Starfall with Arthur, where mother and son never saw each other again. Even Rhaegar did not meet his heir until after the war, where the boy was already months old and raised by the household of newly-made Hand of the King, Lord Connington.

But his life as the Prince of Dragonstone started almost immediately. Rhaegar was heavily scarred by the losses of Elia and Rhaenys, so he had Aegon well-sheltered throughout his years as a babe and toddler. Lyanna herself became like a mother to him, really the only mother he ever knew, and her children his beloved siblings that he was constantly raised beside. With the help of men like Arthur Dayne and Connington, even Barristan Selmy, the young Prince was finally guided out of his father's protective shadow and allowed to flourish into the bright, strong heir of Elia Martell and Rhaegar Targaryen. With his dragon being the first to hatch, any possible doubts of his future abilities were dashed as soon as that red and black leviathan crawled out of its ossified shell. His mother may have been weak and sickly, but it was clear that trait did touch who some had already begun calling the Red Prince.

Betrothed to his half-sister Visenya at sixteen and finally married to her at nineteen (nearly twenty,) the two continue to even out the seams of their union... finding the lines drawn between brother and sister, and husband and wife. Though kept close by their two dragons and the love the Seven Kingdoms have for them, the weight of future King and Queen of Westeros does not weigh lightly on either of their shoulders. Some almost think the same shadow that has plagued a somber Rhaegar his whole life, too follows young Aegon.

In just recent times, the Prince was ordered to fly to Volantis to try and meet with the Triarchs and stay their hand from declaring war on the Free Cities. True to their nature, however, a huge siege was underway that ended in the Prince's capture and wounded his dragon. His beast returned to Dragonstone without his rider, signaling that the Red Prince had been taken as a royal hostage. After sending Prince Viserys to rescue him, the Red & White Princes soon returned together... but not before setting half of Volantis ablaze. Now, after the war in Tyrosh, he and Visenya ready to welcome their first child together. But we all know the true darkness is yet to come...

WIKI PAGES HAVE BEEN MADE FOR AEGON AND HIS DRAGON AEMITHOR! You may use these only as a guide, please do not feel as if these have to be followed precisely! Just let a staff member know if you have any qualms or questions or specific changes you'd like to make, and it will be totally fine!!

Aelix Targaryen


Prince of Westeros, Deputy Warden of the Kingswood

There were very few good omens surrounding Lyanna's pregnancy with Aelix, and even fewer when he was finally born. Though he came out wailing and gluttonous for milk, it left his mother bedridden for weeks - and that is not counting the many times he left her ill whilst still in the womb. Rigid and reclusive, the boy was not easy to raise and was even harder to please, and was prone to the very same melancholic mood swings that his father was so well known for. As a child he disliked public gatherings or celebrations, and had very specific tastes in music that only certain bards and minstrels could play. Though he was indulged, for the most part, he was not allowed to lash out or behave wildly, and would be sent to his own chambers with his siblings if he became too emotional.

It has taken a long, long time, but with his family's love and his father's diligence, Aelix is slowly beginning to show the makings of a true Targaryen prince. (However, I can't say the death of his mother has helped that any.) Though he struggled long and hard to form a bond with his crazy ass unpredictable dragon, there was no stopping the pair once it was finally made, and the two are hardly without each other during daylight hours. Rhaegar intended to start out slow with Aelix's training, and began with making him the squire to Kingsguard Ser Barristan Selmy... who likely beats the crap out of him on the daily. It was not long after that did he appoint Aelix to be one of the two Deputy Wardens of the Kingswood, where he was responsible for protecting the King's game, assigning knights to patrol the forests for bandits, and bringing to justice any illegal poachers.

In the wake of the current wars with Essos, however, Aelix was the only Targaryen to remain behind while the rest of their family journeyed to fight Tyrosh. It was during this time that Rhaegar appointed his youngest son Commander of the City Watch, where now over a hundred armed men answer to he and his young dragon. It was much of Aelix's efforts that quelled the city riots during the war, and now has been confronted with the very-real truth that his father may even have a betrothal for him all too soon.

YSERA TARGARYEN


nee Manwoody. Princess of the Tower.

Though not the first Manwoody to be married into House Targaryen, Ysera remains the first woman to do so, receiving now the royal title of Princess and a firm foothold in the ruling of the Seven Kingdoms. Chosen by the King himself to marry his beloved Winter Prince, it is no doubt he recognized the polar differences in the two long before he signed the betrothal agreement. His son is known to be reserved and almost unmoving, finding refuge in his books and the contemplating turmoil that is his thoughts, whereas Ysera herself is action personified, flame made physical with her eagerness not only to debate, but to pick up a weapon and fight for what she believes in. He has great faith that, even despite their initial clashing, Ysera will come to be a much-needed figurehead not only for Dorne, but a revered co-ruler alongside Matarys. Widely accepting of her into their family, Rhaegar has already come to love her as his gooddaughter and newest Princess, only hoping the rest of his children will follow suit.

True to her nature, Ysera defied the wishes of many and took up arms to join the King's war, finding herself on a ship to Tyrosh alongside her new royal siblings. Though it is her husband who stands second-in-line to the Iron Throne, the idea of self-preservation when so many of her people do not have the choice is not something she can stand by and quietly abide. Just as admirable as she is foolish, Rhaegar will still be eager to welcome her back home upon their victory, for he will accept nothing less and refuses the idea that they could all perish on foreign soil. He will not be responsible for Ysera's death, as well, so it is up to her to get back to him alive and bring him a damned grandchild soon!

Arthur Dayne


Sword of the Morning, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard

Arthur might as well be apart of the family, so close to Rhaegar that he is often referred to by him as his unblooded brother. If there were three keys to the Seven Kingdoms, you can bet it would be Rhaegar, Arthur and Jon to hold them. They might as well, anyway. Having first met as young boys when they were just squires to Gerold "The White Bull" Hightower, it did not take long for them to form an inseparable kinship. It was mostly due to Rhaegar and Gerold's machinations that saw Aerys appointing him to the Kingsguard, and it was mostly Rhaegar that Arthur ever found himself beside when standing vigil. While their friendship was seriously tested during the times that the Mad King abused Rhaella (since Rhaegar initially blamed the Kingsguard for not protecting her, and Arthur, too,) their bonds remained and it was Arthur who, in the end, saved Elia from Aerys' grips and smuggled her to safety in Dorne.

He was appointed almost immediately to Lord Commander of the Kingsguard upon Rhaegar's ascension, succeeding his own mentor Gerold Hightower after he was slain the Sack of King's Landing. It was not an easy first few years, for almost all of the realm's superb fighting men had died in the war, and the rest were not as eager to put forth their names for the brotherhood. When Princess Elia was murdered under Ser Jonothor Darry's charge, Arthur had to take the man's head for his failure, shortening his ranks even more... and that s u c k e d. Still, together, they were able to rebuild the Kingsguard one by one, and though some came and went over the years, they will not go without a full seven ever again.

As someone who had a major hand in the raising of all the royal princes and princesses, you can say Arthur might even be referred to as Uncle by many of them. A mentor to Aegon and Valarr, it was he who first thrust weapons in their hands and shoved them into the training yards, even entertaining Princess Visenya with her own martial desires. House Targaryen's greatest champion, Arthur is as revered as he is loved.

to the end

Myles Mooton


The King's Steward, Knight of Maidenpool

Right at fourteen years of age, young Myles was selected to be the newly-knighted Prince Rhaegar's first squire. As the second son of Maidenpool, he was not in line to inherit his family's seat, and instead was given the glory of King's Landing and the ultimate honor of learning and training in the Silver Prince's shadow. With only three years separating the two, the pair actually garnered a trusting friendship, and though Rhaegar was still his mentor, he became more of a brother and confidant to the boy of Maidenpool. He officially knighted Myles during the Tourney at Harrenhal, it was only during the War of the Seven that he was actually asked to come with Rhaegar and Lyanna to Dorne, accompanying Ser Oswell Whent and Richard Lonmouth to the Red Mountains. Upon Rhaegar's ascension, he appointed Myles to the very tedious and important position of King's Steward, entrusting him with the management of the entire royal household, and has served dutifully ever since.

As far as his personal life goes, that would be completely up to the member who makes him! The King would have happily arranged a noble match for him in the past, perhaps even to one of the Queen's ladies if you'd like, or he can easily remain unmarried because I mean let's be real, managing the King's household is like a marriage in itself.

The steward's role involves managing the household for the king, overseeing a wide number of aspects and drawing from the king's personal household funds to see it take place. He oversees the servants, he helps arrange the king's daily schedule of audiences and meetings, he helps arrange the logistical aspects when the king chooses to travel outside of the city. The steward is a closely-trusted aide who alleviates many of the day-to-day tasks the king would otherwise have to see to. This a Major Office. -Westeros.org, Blood of Dragons Articles

Lorent Banefort


Heir to the Banefort, Squire to King Rhaegar

The eldest of the King's three squires, Lorent has spent at least the past year expecting to earn his knighthood. Having distinguished himself as an attentive page, servant and squire, he is still a bit brash when in the ring with fellow opponents, and only won some rounds at the tourneys at Lannisport, Dorne and Summerhall because of a few dirty tricks up his sleeve. He is not a troublemaker or outwardly disrespectful, but he believes he will do whatever it takes to win a name or earn glory for himself. He has grown up watching princes and princesses on dragonback and sometimes feels a bit competitive with them, and can become a bit overzealous sometimes in his attempts to be noticed.

Lorent was first sent to King's Landing as Rhaegar's page at ten years old. At thirteen, he was officially made his squire, and has been training ever since. Though hungry for glory, he has always had an appetite for the fairer sex, and is even known to bugger with some of the royal ladies in waiting. He has no qualms with courting multiple young women at once, and with an all-too charming smile, he is often presented with potential matches from his father in the Banefort. One can only imagine why he has so far rebuffed them all...

There are many opportunities for him at the palace, and he would have gone with the King on every progression he's made this year. (Lannisport, Sunspear and Summerhall.) Having grown up surrounded by the princes and Kingsguard, Lorent could very well be a skilled swordsman in his own right, being very familiar with the famous knights of the realm that serve the King. He would be a delight to have around, as Rhaegar could still use to knock talk some sense into him!

18 / Lucas Medeiros

Theo Charlton


Heir to House Charlton, Squire to King Rhaegar

Consumed with anger issues as a child, Theo's parents believed forcing him to court by the age of nine would shapen him into an heir worth his father's name. In some truth, he has greatly improved since he was younger, but Theo still has temporary fits whenever he loses to Lorent or another squire of the palace, and has even been known to try and argue with the King a few times. However it is Rhaegar that sympathizes the closest with him, and is really the one that has helped Theo the most over the years, not letting the boy's temper define who he is as a man.

Otherwise Theo has all the makings of a good knight, once he is ready. He is good with an axe and on a horse, but in truth, seems to enjoy being a squire more than he would earning the responsibility of his silver spurs. He is pretty close with the King, trusts him and looks up to him like a father, and knows Rhaegar isn't prepared to give him a woman yet, much less the title of Ser. He is content with that, however, for deep down, Theo knows he has much to learn and a long way to go before he himself feels deserving of the King's dubbing.

Despite that, the boy continues to have his own freewill, and rumors swirl that he has been secretly involved with Princess Rhaenna's Mistress of Keys, Tayce Paege. Seemingly the only one that can soothe or calm him, he's found himself almost obsessed with her. Since the girl's departure to High Tide after the Princess's marriage, however, Theo feels moody again, if not angrier, and feels some defiance in his role to Rhaegar. If only the King would knight him, perhaps he could sail to Driftmark and win Tayce's hand in marriage on his own...

17 / Ryley Lanteigne

Olyvar Oakheart


Heir to Old Oak, Squire to King Rhaegar

Grandson of Arthur Oakheart, former Master of Coin to the Mad King, Olyvar is the youngest and least troubled of the King's squires. Though he is quiet for a boy his age, he is surprisingly talented with a sword and shocks most onlookers once he is in the ring. Known for being a young man of few words but many actions, there is talk of Olyvar earning his knighthood before the other, older squires he serves beside, and because of that, is not very close with either Lorent or Theo. He is a favored pupil of Rhaegar's and is even enjoyed by knights like Arthur Dayne and Barristan Selmy, and has plenty of ladies swooning after him - much to the chagrin of Lorent.

The boy is peculiarly honorable, and as nephew to Lord Arys of Old Oak, he prides himself in his old House and trains diligently for the day he may have to inherit. Though it is not something he wishes for, as he hopes his uncle soon marries and has children, Olyvar is one to map, plan and organize, down to the very minute details of his day. It is getting more difficult, however, to withstand the affections of all the young girls that like to fawn over him while he's in the training yards...
