The past. It is the realm of things gone and oft times forgotten. Composed of events and eras that have since passed by the wayside. But for some the past is just as real as the present. For those people each day is lived in a shadowy haze where everyday actions and past regrets intermingle. This was the life Sebastian Sundown had known for ages. A life bereft of transgressions, heartache, and darkness. A life lived as an assassin for hire, under the authority a small yet powerful organization. They were but 5 large (including their leader) and went by the name of Crudus Sol (the Bleeding Sun). They operated in secrecy; outside of any jurisdiction and were known in the underground for their skilled warriors, clean kills, and brutal demeanor. Sebastian had trained under them and was an accomplished warrior himself; even gaining the title of second-in-command. Yet despite all the glory and respect this brought him he somehow never felt right about what he did. He wanted out and given the first opportunity disappeared from the group and seeminly all existence. Changing his name to Rio he journeyed far away to the land of Rofsyth. Their he proved his worth to the province's king and earned his trust, gaining a position within the royal palace. Many years passed, a secret romance blossomed between he and the King's daughter, and lost in all the emotion Sebastian felt for the first time he was free. However, the agency never stopped searching for him, believing either he had died, or become a deserter. Believing himself to be safe behind his new life and strong love Sebastian will neglect to predict the impending struggle he will soon face. A trial that will seperate him from his love and disrupt the new life which he has created. [hr] The story you are about to be a part of takes place in a medieval era of fantasy and rustic living. This is the land of Moonglow. Only original characters are welcome here. Only blade style (this can include katanas and the like) or medieval style weaponry allowed.
