Elizabeth Victoria PendragonNicknames:
The First Queen of the Dragoons; Queen of the Faeries; The First Queen; Victoria the Great; Elizabeth the Great; True Age:
Elizabeth is not the standard noblewoman. Unlike her Eastern counterpart, she is a noble first, a knight second, and a woman third. As the original Queen of the West, Elizabeth has some political power. Granted, she only uses it when she
feels it necessary, not always when it is
necessary. One of her "abuses" of power is what she does to those who distinguish themselves through "conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his or her life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the Western Sugiura Lands." Simply put, Elizabeth gives that family a "social boost" by making the person either a baron or baroness. If the distinction is good enough, Elizabeth will make the person a count. One thing she hates are the "faux-Pendragons." These are those who are not related to her in any way (granted, she forced all of her children to have a different surname) with the "Pendragon" surname.
However, a queen can't be called "great" just on heroics and battle preparedness. No, a great queen is one who has also helped the people. And by God, Elizabeth helped them out tremendously. In the original Western Lands, it was simply a conglomeration of colony-states under the rule of Dechtere the Destroyer. Under Elizabeth, the firestorm caused by her predecessor was quelled. She provided for her people, sacrificing her own time to help with some work. It is rumored that she placed the first brick in her castle's foundation, but let a war orphan place the last.
Despite being a noble, she knows that there are people whom are not of high class that can outshine her and her descendents. However, despite knowing
there are those who are more skilled than her, she does not believe any
claims that "x is stronger than y." In fact, such claims without any sort of physical evidence to back it up are treated as an insult. Now, what does Elizabeth, as both a knight and noble, treat the insulters to? She challenges them to a joust. Of course, Elizabeth uses her Pseudo-Sacred/Chevauleger's Standby Form to do so. Other than ceremonial occasions, that would be the only time the Lance of Longinus
is revealed for non-major combat.
Elizabeth is a beautiful woman with blue eyes and long blond hair. Befitting her status as the first Grand Marshall of the Royal Dragoon Corps, she wears an extravagant uniform, with a gold and orange color motif compared to the blue motif used by regular Dragoons. She also wears a headdress that resembles a cross. Animalistic Traits:
Elizabeth is known as the Queen of the Faeries because of her animal traits. Tucked inside the apparatus on her back is actually a set of fairy-like wings, deployed whenever she needs to prove that she is who she is. She also is incredibly lightweight.Appearance Age:
Despite being a Tsurugi, Elizabeth is rather highly skilled with the Sugiura magic. This is because before she was a technical Magus Sugiura before throwing away her Magecraft for her to wield the Lance of Longinus. Her Magecraft's abilities are long gone, however. Fairy Lineage:
Because of Elizabeth's Fairy Lineage, she is granted special abilities much like her ancestors.
- Magic Resistance : Magic Resistance grants protection against magical effects. Differently from the Resistance effect that merely rejects prana, this ability cancels the spells altogether upon impact. Elizabeth demonstrates high Magic Resistance due to her unwavering piety. She can stop equivalents of Kidō up to 60, as well as "otherworldly" energies (Death Energy, Life Energy, etc.) being reduced to 1/4 of their effect on her.
- Presence Detection: Presence Detection is the ability to detect other beings and local energy sources. Called an ability of the highest class, Elizabeth is capable of detecting anything from non-spiritual assassins to water sources clear across Camelot, covering more than ten kilometers.However, she can only give a vague estimate of strength, as it's just a radar-like system.
- Protection of the Fairies: Protection of the Fairies is a blessing from Elementals; the capacity to increase one's Luck in dangerous situations. Activation is limited to battlefields, where it is possible to perform feats of arms. This means that Elizabeth will be able to have "saving throws" more easily accessible. It also prevents fairy-like beings from being able to harm her.
- Uncrowned Arms Mastership: Uncrowned Arms Mastership is arms competency that was not recognized by others due various reasons. To the opponents, the rank of Elizabeth's skills are all "shown" to be one rank lower than they actually are. If she reveals the Lance of Longinus, the effect is terminated.
- Military Tactics: Military Tactics is tactical knowledge used not for one-on-one combat situations, but for battles where many are mobilized. Bonus modifiers are provided during use of one's own Anti-Army abilities within Camelot or when dealing against an enemy's Anti-Army abilities. For her own, the power is doubled (Lance of Divinity is always doubled, and the stats mentioned in it are the doubled version). For the opponent's, the power is halved (if it is an otherworldly-energy-using ability, this puts the ability's power at 1/8).
- Prana Burst: Prana Burst is the increase in performance caused by impregnating one's weapons and body with magical energy and instantly expelling it. Simply put, recreating the effect of a jet burst by expending large amounts of reiatsu. Elizabeth does so with her Fairy Wings mainly, using the swords on her back as aerofoils and rudders, allowing her to have rather sharp turns and climb when using Prana Burst. She can do it once per three posts.
- Fairy Writing: Elizabeth, being half-fairy, is the only person alive today that can write in the mystical Fairy Language. Every weapon she crafts, she engraves with the mystical letters. They act as a pseudo-Unifed Language, granting the weapon immense power. However, it is only in the hands of "þá gesetennessa æt gereccede" (those meant to wield) that the weapon's true power can be attained. Anyone can brandish a sword, but it takes a true knight to wield it. As such the case of Excalibur, it was meant to be a sign of Kingship but also a sign of Knighthood. In her time, Elizabeth was both. Thus, she was able to wield it at its full power. Only one who identified as both a king/queen and a true knight could wield the weapon to its full power.
- Fairy Wings: Tucked under her armor and kept concealed with her reiatsu are a pair of massive fairy wings. When released, the wings create a massive shockwave of pure reiatsu. They appear like massive flows of rainbow-like color. They do not do anything except create the shockwave.
Elizabeth is, strangely, a master blacksmith. She crafted the Holy Sword Excalibur as well as the Lance of Longinus. And while she did not craft the sword, she did engrave the finished Arondight.Lance of Longinus • Only One Pierce:
The equivalent of Excalibur and Fragarach. It is a powerful lance, engraved with Fairy Letters much like Excalibur. The Lance of Longinus is actually no longer in its proper lance form. The shaft of the once-great lance was snapped off. Instead, only the blade of the great weapon remains. This was so Elizabeth could weild it much like her first weapon: Excalibur. The Lance of Longinus is a great sword still, as its full length was well over six meters with the shaft still attached. Now, the weapon is a full meter long. Its ability was, and still is, to break through any armor. It could be called the precursor to Diarmuid Ua-Duibnhe's Gáe Dearg. Unlike Gáe Dearg, it does not use severing of bonds to cut through armor. Rather, the Lance of Longinus penetrates anything with the concept of "armor" or "shield." This means whatever is used as armor or a shield is useless against the Lance of Longinus. Lance of Longinus • Lance of Divinity:
A powerful ability that is considered as Camelot's "homeland defensive ability sword". When invoked, it summons a long sword made out of light 20km in length and 2m in thickness. It is designed not to slice its target, but rather to crush anything that comes within the shockwave that is produced by swinging the sword around. It can only be used within the boundaries of Elizabeth's castle itself. It can only be used once per thread.Lance of Longinus • The Key to Camelot:
Only with the Lance of Longinus, may those outside enter Elizabeth's domain. Elizabeth will thrust the Lance into thin air, its single red orb glowing bright. From the area pierced, countless branches of blue energy spread out like a circuitboard. The lines are thin and translucent. The branches have sub-branches, the sub-branches have sub-branches. The tree of energy is ultracompressed, glistening in the sun. They spread for kilometers in every direction, eventually making an inverted cross. Then, the tree inverts and becomes a stone door that will be opened once and closed once per usage of Lance of Longinus • The Key to Camelot.Lance of Longinus • King's Gift Sword Second Form:
This is only usable within Camelot. Lance of Longinus • King's Gift Sword Second Form
uses the honor of knights to be able to summon swords, spears, axes, lances, etc. from anything in there. They are metal-reishi fused, making them a dual-purpose weapon. Elizabeth can command the weapons telepathically. It is unknown how many she can control at once.Camelot • The Kingdom of Honor:
Elizabeth's castle is kept hidden in a sub-existence of the West, hidden away from even the most skilled Magi's skills. Not even Elizabeth's own Presence Detection can find Camelot. There is only one way in, but there are multiple ways out. However, if come from a different plane or such, you can not enter Camelot forcibly. If you use a Reality Marble, you will be thrown out of Camelot upon the end of it.Other Weapons:
On her back, there are six large broadswords, of which she is highly skilled with. They float in orbit around her back. They are single-edge, which is strange for a broadsword. However, they are quite ornate. Inscribed with Fairy Letters, the black blades stand out against her white outfit. She also has an ornate dagger in her headdress in case she needs to knight or "noble-fy" someone.
"The Blade Must Be Pure." (For every innocent person's blood is spilled by Chevauleger's weapons, Elizabeth not only experiences excruciating pain, but also her lifespan is reduced by a century. Innocent people are those who did not draw their weapon to defend against Chevauleger. Those that repent for their "sins" will be counted as innocent until they re-draw their weapon against Chevauleger.)Smith:
Sieghard Asgar Hildebrand Lanzo Waldermar Torsten Gerulf Egon von Austerlitz IIIStandby Form Appearance:
The Spear of Destiny, the Lance of Longinus. The standby form of Cheauleger is nothing to scoff at, as it is a holy weapon within itself. However, this is not the true Lance of Longinus, but rather meant to make people think it is.Humanoid Form Appearance:
Sieghard, as the humanoid form prefers to be called, is a young knight. He has white hair and a golden headcrest adorning his forehead. Two pair of angel-like wings adorn his back. He has platinum-colored armor with golden inlays all across. However, his grieves are both golden with lighter brass inlays. His sword is carried in his left hand and keeps his color scheme and overall design.Personality:
Sieghard was a knight of justice but not blind justice. He did not randomly swinging the "Sword of Justice" at anything that seems evil. He did not believe that anything was truly irredeemable, and so he'd try to get his opponents to repent instead of meet at the pearly gates. However, Sieghard's view was narrowed before his sealing inside Chevauleger. It was because he met a truly evil woman, someone who had nothing but destruction and hatred in her heart. Now, Sieghard is wondering how many of those he "saved" actually were.
Thus, Sieghard doesn't try to "save" people, but rather smite the at first. However, he still wants people to be saved, even if it takes a bit more effort and bloodshed.History:
Sieghard was never a knight under Elizabeth. He was a bit older, a knight under Dechtere. Yes, he was her first knight, and he wielded a holy sword, one of the first. However, Sieghard was sent to "purify" and "save" "heathens" from themselves. These "heathens" were truly just anarchists who opposed Dechtere's rule. However, Sieghard did not know this. He was under the impression that she was a good person... what a joke.
It took him raiding a village near his home to realize that something was wrong. His saving was all for naught. The people he saved did not repent, and the people he purified were innocent. He did not sleep for days, and finally he stood up to Dechtere, where he was instantly defeated by a rain of blades. As punishment, Dechtere sealed him within a suit of armor she had on display. Granted, she did not allow him to move or speak. It took many thousand years before Elizabeth learned of the suit of armor's true nature, where she made it her own personal sword. She promised to him that he would
Tsurugi UnleashedCalling Phrase:
Reason will not decide at last; the sword will decide.Armor Appearance:
Chevauleger's armored form is sterling white, adorned with wing patterns and a wing visor on the helmet. It can use Elizabeth's wings as propultion, even with them tucked inside. This removes the bulky booster on the back needed for high-altitude combat. Height:

NoneOptional Fixed Armaments:
The main weapons of Chevauleger are a pair of massive (3.5-meter long, and half-meter wide for the BLADE ONLY) swords. However, the swords each has a 1-meter long handle, making these half-pole weapons as well. The handles can be attached to one another, making the total length of the combined weapon 9 meters. Outlaw:
Lanceam Longinum•Sancto PenetrabileOutlaw Abilities:
Crucifixion. The ancient method of deliberately painful execution in which the condemned person is tied or nailed to a large wooden cross and left to hang until dead. When Chevauleger prepares for Lanceam Longinum•Sancto Penetrabile
, it changes form. One of the swords turn into an oversized lance, while the other turns into an ornate shield. A single wing appears from the read right shoulder. Without using its true ability, Elizabeth can keep the form up for four posts. The ability of Lanceam Longinum•Sancto Penetrabile
is first started by firing energy lances from the tip of her own lance she fires four at a time, each of them locking onto, but not truly homing in on, the wrists and ankles of her target. If two of them impact, a large cross appears behind them to which they are bound to by the lances. The lances dissolve into nails, driven into the cross. She then uses a form of Prana Burst to infuse as much energy as she can into her physical lance. To disorient the opponent, the cross starts spinning with the center where the opponent's heart is. Elizabeth will then penetrate the opponent's chest if they're still on the cross. Upon penetration, she will release all of the energy gathered within her lance. That almost guarantees a kill, as even if the penetration does not kill them, the massive release of energy will most certainly turn the organs, bones, and muscles into nothing but goo.Outlaw Drawback:
It may be powerful, but it is a process. Her opponent could possibly break free (if their strength is high enough) from the nails (ouch, and hello, hand damage?). And it is entirely possible to break the cross from its rotational axis, so her opponent could be running around with a giant cross on their back. There's also the fact that she has to actually HIT her opponent's wrist and/or ankles. Then, there's the fact that the lance itself is an unwieldly weapon. And finally, there's the fact that she can only use it once per thread.
Past & Roleplay Sample
Character Background: Elizabeth's birth was never recorded. She doesn't even know exactly how old she is, nor her birthday. Her mother was a fairy-type Guardian Beast, one of the so-called "Phantasmal Species." Her father was a knight under Dechtere, like many of the men at this time. However... Elizabeth was kept secret. She would be purged because of her lineage, which was a direct threat to Dechtere. Elizabeth was raised by her mother's kin, who taught her great ettiquette. It was like the faeries were training her to be the next queen...
When Dechtere disappeared, the entire West was thrown into disarray. However, the remaining few knights gathered. Elizabeth's father told them of his daughter, who was being raised in secret. The other knights had no other suggestions, and it would be a massive undertaking to make the West less... anarchistic. The knights then realized something: Elizabeth was not old enough to rule. They chose her father to be a regent until she gained more experience in the political world.
Over a few centuries, Elizabeth's father kept things the same, which was better than letting the West's situation deteriorate further. Eventually, Elizabeth stood up. She took the power from her father and went to the two largest factions warring for control. Singlehandedly, she made both of their leaders agree to a ceasefire. She did so by simply proving that the previous queen was who they should be warring, not each other. This gained her much respect throughout the West. Over many years, Elizabeth united the West under one flag and overall system, granting each city-state the ability to become provinces and be protected under a single, large military force. Unanimously, all of the once-warring territories accepted her deal.
She kept the rule for many thousands of years, where she started to learn more talents from her mother's side. She could craft weapons of massive power now by inscribing Fairy Letters into them. She crafted a golden sword of pure victory which she wielded, a sword of the lake which she hid away, and a lance of pure divinity. Elizabeth used the golden sword to prove she was THE Queen. Elizabeth however, soon started to realize something. She was ruling for too long. There needed to be someone with fresh ideas, so she placed EXCALIBUR•THE SWORD OF PROMISED VICTORY in a lake with her aunt. She said that only the next person capable of being a ruler could take the sword, but only if he or she also was an ideal knight.Elizabeth fled the West, where she went into hiding in a sub-space created just for her. Ironically, she placed it right above the capitol of the West.
