Just as Chalyela walks into the castle, the imposter greets her in a rude, disrespectful matter.
“You shall never see even a segment of the crest if this is how you treat a guest!” He shouts.
His words seriously anger her and she swiftly pulls out her sword.
“What is going on cousin? I was just funning you.”
“If you are a relative of mine, than certainly you know that we have a family tradition of being swift with the blade,” Chalyela says holding her sword in a ready position.
“OK…OK, I lied! I intercepted your scroll and decided to pretend to be your cousin to see what I could get out of you. I meant no harm!” Jace finally admits.
“Then you have committed high treason! And that is punishable by death!” Chalyela says slicing Jace across his middle in one swift swing.
Jace crumbles to the ground holding his injury...
…before perishing at Queen Chalyela’s feet.
Death arrives to take away his soul.
Chalyela shall never get used to witnessing his arrival.
She feels terrible about taking a life, but knows that she has done what was needed to protect her kingdom and her crown.
As she stands and looks over the kingdom that she has built, she decides to make a new family crest, based on her accomplishments as queen of Archolia.
Knight Commander Ivan continued to train and build up the security of the kingdom. He built a name for himself throughout Archolia and surrounding kingdoms. His love for Queen Chalyela never faltered and the two of them built upon their love until the day he died.
Surgeon Gavin found great happiness with his wife Jolene and his son Godfrey. Jolene still occasionally suffered the effects of her lifetime curse…
…but with Gavin by her side, she never feared again.
Amelia drew the eye of many available men, but decided that music and performing came first in her life. Over time she realized that she really did have love in her heart for Aramis the Rat king from Aarbyville .
She never forgot him, but she refused to let his death weigh on her.
Prioress Ermine also never married. She spent her days preaching about The Watcher; dedicating her life to the Watcher fully. She went on to author several more books that taught The Watcher’s message.
The marriage between Percival and Huntress Felicia did not last long. Felicia was never very happy being a merchant’s wife and eventually ran away with a fellow hunter; leaving Percival to raise their daughter Illiana alone. Illiana grew up and eventually took over her father’s trade as merchant.
Queen Chalyela ruled over Archolia for many years.
She was successful in her mission to build a kingdom up and keep it safe. Despite her fears, no foreign dignitary was ever successful in overthrowing Queen Chalyela as ruler of Archolia.
At a young age, Princess Adela was groomed to rule the kingdom of Archolia as well as her mother before her.
She inherited the right to rule over Archolia after the death of her mother.
However, her rule did not last long, because she too inherited her mother’s weak constitution; which led to her death a few years after she took over the crown.
After the death of his sister Adela, Ivan the 2nd was next in line for the crown. Rebellious in nature, Ivan the 2nd used his power and money to party and entertain women. His inattention to the affairs of the kingdom led to the kingdom of Archolia being attacked and taken over by a nearby territory.
