Profiles for Kings. (Current and deceased)

Ok I'll hit you with that generic easy to understand profiling. Because I just sort of explain things instead of dumbing down things to the most easy to understand because you know... I'm on overly complex person because I like not making sense.
Either way there will be things that are not meant to be 100% clear. Like real names for the leaders will not always be said, but a title they have been given or taken. Many other interesting side notes like kill count.


"You couldn't just leave well enough alone. I'll show you what you think Lowblood truly is, and truly can be."
Due to rapture republics involvement in this timeline will be cannon.
Also this short little info section will be expanded greatly in due time as the original info was ripped straight from the fallen festival FACTBOOK
A new factbook will be crafted in due enough time.

Name:He has not had the opportunity to state his name
Species: He was once human
age:Unknown

Past info:

One shrouded in mystery as leaders in the past torched any history of the creature.
Many fear to even mention his existence as he is often times referred to as a bad omen, appearingin dreams, lore written deep in caves and even the abyss about his existence.

Many have tried to travel down to his tomb in the tower of fallen lords but non have managed to pull it off due to unknown reason.

With Oni's journey along with the attempts of others in the past, the abyss holds much lore, even structures where the creatures of the abyss praise the first king. As he could bring out the humanity in beast, and the beast in man. Only an ability so rare that there has only been two other than him to hold it.

Rebirth & reclamation of lowblood


Escape from rapture:
The king wasn't ready to go down quietly, nor was he even ready to go down. But he felt as if Lowblood wasn't delt a fair hand, rather a cheap shot as he escaped Rapture Republic.

John Mercer was attempting to call together mages to somehow cancel out his own doings to only futile attempts as the more the mages cast and try to cut, the more His presence could be felt, finally the first king forcibly ripped himself from from John, if not for Mercer's immortality he would have been half the man he was at the start of the process.
With the flick of the wrist the first king pulled the mages towards him seemingly through the air as he absorbed them in a harrowing process, even making a cloak from their torn robes.

The first king left with unload a few rounds into the leader of rapture, then ultimately placing his hand on one of the glass tunnels of rapture and watching as it became nothing blowing a hole in the building and then again through the protective shutters before fading out of reality back to Lowblood.



Calling to arms and officially going to war with rapture:
The first king warped onto Lowbloodian soil towards a shut down lab of a fallen King, Strauss. The lab was made for war purposes and wasn't put into full use as Valtr was dead before he could react.

With the wave of a hand Lowbloods Defense AI booted up and Greet the first.
Fairies as he put them, then ordered the creation of a few plans to be constructed involving weaponized beasts. And raise the nation's defensive procedures.
He then walked outside and waved his hand in the air once more as the clouds around Lowblood darken to a pitch black. (This was so none can enter nor escape. And furthermore to make sure Lowblood was not nuked as any blast from outer forces will be warped to a pocket space)
At this point stone would see about half the population turning to beasts, giants breaking from their slave laborers, Rapture AI slowly becoming rampant.
All in a unified manner. Even the beasts were acting as if they still had control, working along side the unchanged as a full blown rebellion.

Oni's legion even returned from the abyss to take part in this event. Bowing at the word, as they were disgusted by what Lowblood had turned into

As The First warped the whole populus to one location He gave a speach.

"Citizens of Lowblood, as some of you may have noticed a scourge has defiled our once glorious nation.
Trying to correct and corrupt you all to what you see fit, we did and do not need this. As I'm sure many of you have gave hell before being forced into this reform.
At this time we must call to arms while we have the upper hand, we must assure that if Rapture isn't with us, they sure as hell will know they are against us!
Let us avenge the King of corpses and the Law that was broken when Their leader invaded and killed a man in a unrighteous manner, without even a proper duel.
And last but not least, let's show them why we are the nation of Lowblood. We were known for letting refuge for falling nations in the past, now they punish invade and punish us for our open arms. We are not Aquarians, but Lowbloodians!(Or Lowians)
Let's give them hell!"

While the first king could vary easily just warp the nation away or split its reality and place every rapturian in a false reality, or while he could just whipe anything off Lowblood with abyssal magic and the nightmares of the abyss.
He decided to show Lowblood's fangs as many have tried to abuse this nation in the past.

As they started taking back Lowblood he gifted magic to beasts, taught new magic to the mages.
Delving into past projects and further them as Strauss dreamed of weaponizing beasts as they have a stronger threshold for damage, so not only can they wield stronger tools they can take more damage.

Things were fully unified. And hyper agressive.

This lead to a rather stalemate that outlived even John. The first king despises the colony, and even holds more for those of Rapture. But he has acknowledged that the war is as good as over. Even though the Lowbloodian populus is still hyper defensive.

And with this new era for Lowblood he finally believes that they can finally start reconstructing.



Policies & goals
While the first king put alot of his chips into war, but as soon as it ended he now must plot out a path to undo the destruction of war.
He even reverted all that had been turned to beast back to normal. (Keep in mind this doesn't effect those that were beast before this)

Aid to those affected by the war
Those that may have lost homes or jobs are offered to home and work at one of the many shelters till repairs are made.
Repairing of kingdoms and overall lands. Day by day repairs are made from buildings to scorched lands.
Mages are brought together to heal the planet from the marks left by war. While even the king accompanies the construction of new structures.

"Finding a new king once this is all over."
The first king is on his second term as a king of corpses, that's a feat non have accomplished as to end ones rule they must have their life taken.
With this being said The king has a sense that maybe he should go back to resting.
So trials are being held to find the next bearer if the soul.

Jolly cooperation
A new colony has formed near the lands of Lowblood. While the first king had thoughts of just warping the colony to space that would bring death to many great mages so he will settle with this alternative for now.

Watching the abyss
The war left many new occurrences in the lands. Oni's legion has been appointed to combat the newfound rise in the sightings of abyssal occurrences.




Name: Valtr
Species: Human
Age 34

[b]Bio
[/b]
A boy born into an average life, Valtr grew up in the harsh lands of Lowblood with a rather grateful view of his upbringing.
Younger life
Valtr was born his father a soldier and mother a priestess.
His name was given to him as a remembrance to his father's best friend,a soldier that died in combat.

His life was fairly normal, Valtr had visions he thought was just destiny or perhaps a dream.

Base life
He had faced many tough times and took up his father's retirement, a business as a blacksmith, and when his father had passed away.

For quite some time he had grown interested in the adventurers that traveled through the lands and decided to partake in a journey that led him to the burial ground of all kings he had fought a long battle that led him to stare into the abyss for a moment he even thought he'd be consumed by it, but indeed it forewarned him of the fast approaching future...
The fall of the king
As Valtr made made his way to the destination he felt uneasy as he made his way up to face Oni.

Some words were exchanged but both souls knew what had to be done, Oni had been dodging fates bullet for far too long as he felt the corruption fighting him. The king of corpses became the consumed king unable to even exchange words as an endless assault
was unleashed, Valtr kept a calm mind after the duel had commenced as he had seen Oni fight.

An opening finally came to view as Valtr used his sword to take one of the king's arm off and slowly unraveling Oni till the king finally fell.

Valtr exchanged his final words with the dying king. The two seemed like they would have gotten along well, Oni's spirit actually lurks around him farly often.

A new chapter lies in Lowblood as this is a new king. So return in the future to find more lore

Other misc info
Many think that Valtr lost his arm due to Oni during their fight.
But in fact it was the head of Oni's legion as they have split from the military only working under Oni's command.
Valtr tried to strike the knight down the same way he did Oni, only to see his own arm spinning.

[The story of the knight will soon be up on The legion's factbook.]
Valtr sports a prostetic at times but not always as just the fact he lost the duel instilled doubt in himself for quite some time.





Nickname:Oni
Creature: Neko
Age crowned and death:28-56
Bio:

A man with a shady past and many names. Oni rose to power after taking the life of the previous King.

Oni started working at the age of 15 where he was offered by a drunk to take another mans life. Not much is known about how Oni got into the bar but without hesitation he took the job and many more to come.

That is till till the assassin met face to face with the King of Corpses Low, the two commended a duel in which Low had won.
After killing the one responsible for the hit Low offered Oni a fresh start to either die by his blade as many have or join a special group of many that have met the same fate as his own.

For many years Oni was a spy for Low picking up tasks until Low fell, his comrades executed, The spy made it out but only by pure luck. Forced yo go into hiding for a week.

Strauss was ruthless but he left himself open, Oni challenged him to a duel with the neko hailing victory.

Oni was a little hesitant at first but in due time he became stronger and gathered more knowledge.
Even though it was difficult as many saw Oni as tainted blood and unstable as his ears and tail raise question.
This dislike has shrunk since his start.

End
Over time Oni had done quite the number of things in Lowblood spanning from rebirthing magic, renovating and reinforcing Lowblood from its structure, and finally travelling into the abyss.

At the end Oni was said to have met his fate countless times by the witches that serve the leaders of lowblood.

They were false surprisingly 36 times, Oni was the first mistake of the old witches.

Sadly dodging bullets for so long Oni felt the abyss pulling at him with each skirmish his legion held, the corruption slowly was taking hold, even Strauss's suppressant wasn't working for the King.
He finally felt his time he heard steps making their way to the dueling field as as he tends the the greenery and the old blades that cover the area.

He kept repeating his name in his head until he finally gave into the corruption, Occasionally murmuring not Oni, but his actual name.


Policies:
As a popular request here are some of the acts this leader has inacted to (attempt) make the nation a better place.
Structural remodeling Oni first ordered that houses beyond 50 years be remodeled for safety reasons and to make the nation look less worn down and weak.
Furthering even more with Lowbloodian science/ lore and knowledge: Oni worked with the fallen king Strauss as he saw reason to his methods, so he allowed and even gave some resources to help.
The revival of Lowbloodian magic.: within such a short period of time Oni had discovered that magic is still accessible to civilians and allowed the practice of it with the construction of a grand library.
"Into the parallel" With the revival of magic, also the revival of a dark shroud hidden within Lowbloods. A forgotten land was discovered and Oni set out to explore it also forming a legion.

It should also be stated that now actually veiws himself as a King Of Corpses as a placeholder wouldn't have been at it for this long.


Weapon: Jaws of death

If you were ever wondering what weapon Oni uses this is the famed set of this specific King of Corpses, while it is a devastating blade it is only used by this one soul just as some others have unique tools.

The great swords work hand and hand, when combined it forms a heavy force that one can literally feel the duel blows but split it makes a dexterous force.

Oni decided to trust in an old hunter who smithed him the jaws of death. He decided to switch his weapons around after his 24th pair of daggers broke on him.




Name:Strauss
Creature:Human.(Deceased)
Age of death:40
Bio:

Strauss, a man ruthlessly obsessed with finding a cure for the tainted blood that scourges Lowblood to this day.
Strauss rose to power after killing the previous King.

In his younger years Strauss, while not being the top scholar but was indeed one of the more notable of his class.
During these younger years he caught feeling for an unamed woman, the two dated for fifteen years before his lover suddenly fell to a condition that most Lowbloodians call "Tainted blood" this resulted in her nearly killing her lover and eventually being put down.

Strauss enraged by this act felt he could have fixed the situation. Riddled with guilt and depression Strauss went to the King Of Corpses, Low in hopes to persuade him into letting him assist Lowblood and crate a cure.

The king however was experiencing some difficulties at said time and was forced to decline, but gave some reassuring words.
Strauss not satisfied by his encounter took a turn for the worse and planned a way to achieve his goal. With foulplay he killed Low and ruled for a year before meeting his demise.

However his story doesn't end as Oni granted his spirit to linger in the labs Strauss had created so that he may find a cure.
Final words:"I kind of like how I could be considered a villain and some people liked me, you know?"
He's pretty much Handsome Jack from the borderlands series.




Policies: As a popular request here are some of the acts this leader has inacted to (attempt) make the nation a better place.
Furthering Lowbloodian science Strauss thought to advance the knowledge of the labs and its equipment to cure the Tainted blood Lowbloodians carry.

Strauss made many changes but not all were logged because some were lost due to his lack of time ruling.


Weapon: Revolvers

He had two heavy revolvers that were quite the force when hitting a target.

When shooting both in unison it actually launched him back.







Nickname:Low
Creature: human(deceased)
Age of death: 38
Bio:

A rather calm and Quiet boy, Low rose to power after killing the previous King.

At a young age Low made it through his lafe being dragged through the mud. Living a life of education balanced with work Low had only one thing on his mind, a fear to never stop moving.

When in middle school Low had an encounter with a group of foreigners in which he was nearly put in a cage in which he barely managing to escape.
This encounter left a mark on the boy as he was rescued by a man wielding a scythe.

The man was scared but had an idol, the King Of Corpses. As time passed Low found himself challenging his Idol as Death was weak from his life and wished to experience a true fight before he went out.

Low struck a fierce blow in which took down Death.
Low, thinking his battle was mock was caught off guard when he stiked the king down. Death would look after Low in the afterlife as a master to an apprentice.

Sadly Low had met his fate at the hands of five gunman.
Final words:"Looks like today just wasn't my day."



Policies: As a popular request here are some of the acts this leader has inacted to (attempt) make the nation a better place.
Ban on out of state mercenaries and slavery in general.: Low nearly became a slave at the start of his life so he had a strong hate for mercenaries as some held side jobs as slavers. He noticed most were from out of state so he set a ban, and any sight of the practice will result in death.

Army modifications: Low introduced a few branches and special ranks.

More jobs: During his rule Low had many ideas for the industry and inspired quite the amount of companies to add a bit more positions for manners of safety and for the mechanical advance that time had to come.

Understanding expirementation:One of the interesting things Low did was invited ideals and offered himself as the dummy for other nations to experiment for those more curious towards the king of Corpses. Just as long as it isnt lethal, or furthermore aiming towards killing him (which has happened a handful of times.)

Upgrades to Lowbloodian techLow always thought that nations would veiw him as a a pushover so he invested in the futherment of military equipment, servers, and much more.


Weapon: Gravelord sword

A sword forged for a lord of grave.






Nickname: Death
Creature: Human (Deceased)
Age of death:?
Bio:

Death had a knack for calling those around him "Senpai" a story told in many different ways.
Death rose to power after killing the previous Queen

Death wasn't always a skeleton as he started life much like the normal Lowbloodian citizens.
When Death found a suitable business opportunity he took it working as a store owner.

As his life went on he eventually crossed paths with the current Queen Of Corpses and commenced a fierce battle resulting in Death's Victory.

It took the king awhile to get use to but withing a few months he knew what he was doing and in years he felt like he did as well.

It was an unpleasant sight to see but a rouge nation led by a Quern named Rosaria sent a small army to pillage Lowblood.
Through time Death attempted to settle these attacks with a peace treaty that was a set up resulting in a bombing in which Death lost his flesh and muscle.

A skeleton purely held together by The First King's soul. Death wasn't too happy with this and declared war, brutally whipping out the opposing side.

The nation gave Death his name and designed a flag in his honor. His rule was long but he was pleased with it down to the end.
Final words:"You're gonna do great, kid!"



Policies: As a popular request here are some of the acts this leader has inacted to (attempt) make the nation a better place.
Memorial day.:
This holiday is to remember those that fell during the war against Queen Rosaria and her nation of soul stealing minions.

Opening Lowbloods gates:
Before this act Lowblood was an isolated nation hidden away. Death saw potential as the nation had rare resources and much to give and gain.
And he just felt lonely.

And not to mention alot of lifts on strict bans in which will remain out of context.


Weapon: Death's scythe

A sick blade/golf club in which has slayed over five hundred men.
