A while ago, I came up with a team of heroes who defend the town of Kingsport, Massachusetts
. They call themselves the Red Knights, and they are among or descended from the survivors of the terrible attack on the town by the Dark Stone Cutters
in Volume III.
1. Akihiko Himura
Description: The leader of the Red Knights, he was born during the reconstruction of Kingsport after the War. He has black hair and hazel eyes. He received the vision from the angel Raguel when he was 17, and met the other future Red Knights at the meeting place on top of the hill overlooking Kingsport.
Weapon of choice: Two-handed sword
Mount: Either a horse or a red dragon
2. Aislin Moore (née Maher)
Description: She’s Jayden’s wife, and used to be a stage actress. She’s often described as the most beautiful woman in town, with curly light orange-brown shoulder-length hair, silver eyes, and a silky smooth Irish accent. Thanks to her shapeshifting, she looks 24 forever. Her name means "dream" in Gaelic, which is appropriate
because she is as beautiful as a dream. And thanks to her shapeshifting powers, she can change as quickly as one too.
Weapon of choice: She usually fights via her shapeshifting, though she carries some throwing darts around just to be safe.
Mount: Self-powered flight via shapeshifting
3. Anzhelika Maksimov
Description: A Russian woman of 27, and also the only member of the Red Knights who was not born in Kingsport. Like Akihiko, she received the vision from Raguel during her younger years. Her father was a conservationist who went to America to participate in overseeing captive breeding programs. Unfortunately, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time; he was among the Kingsport townspeople who were killed by the Dark Stone Cutters. Raguel inspired her to become a warrior to preserve his memory. She has long blonde hair and a light hazel right eye and blue left eye
. Her armor is based on the leopard
Weapon of choice: Glaive
Mount: Horse (Black Holsteiner)
4. Jayden Moore
Race: Human (though technically he’s an outsider now)
Description: He’s Aislin’s husband. He used to be a tour bus driver for Kingsport, and met Aislin after one of the plays she performed in. Thanks to his becoming an outsider, he looks 25 forever. His eyes glow blue. He used to have dark brown hair, but he shaved it as part of his becoming a Monk. He wears a sleeveless exercise shirt and a pair of exercise shorts. Since Monks usually don’t wear armor, nobody will see it coming.
Weapons of choice: Kama
Mount: Horse (Black Friesian)
5. Allen Harris
Description: He’s about 19 years old. His parents were among the survivors Demetrios and company saved during the Dark Stone Cutters’ attacks on Kingsport, as well as members of the volunteers during the demonic attack on Ahrinor Island. He has blue-green eyes and black hair that he wears in a swept back style, similar to Vergil in Devil May Cry 3
. His specialty is fire magic
, he carries a crossbow as a backup weapon, and he has the rock hyrax/mastodon/mammoth familiar (I still haven't decided which one yet), which also serves as his mount.
6. Felicia Mason
Description: She’s of English descent. Her hair has often been described as being the color of coffee, and she has emerald green eyes. She looks 32. She used to be a junior high school music teacher and would even play during the Renaissance Fairs.
Weapon of choice: Dagger and violin
Mount: Horse (Black Thoroughbred)
7. Cameron White
Class: Pale Master
Description: He dabbled in the gothic crowd in high school, though he finished with it by the time he graduated. He still looked into it in his spare time. Despite his robust 37-year-old appearance, he has white hair and his narrow eyes (which are blue-grey) give him a mysterious look. Since he’s both a Pale Master and Lawful Neutral
, he comes across as stern and aloof. His familiar, by contrast, is very humorous.
Weapon of choice: Scythe
, the scarlet kingsnake/Titanoboa
Mount: Skeletal Horse
8. Sabrina Zhang
Class: Divine Champion
Description: She was fascinated with the Moon throughout her life, and upon becoming a ghost, was chosen as the champion of a moon goddess. She looks 23 and has blue-violet eyes. Her previously black hair has become silver in color, like the Moon.
Weapons of choice: She wears black and silver chain mail, has an arming sword and shield engraved with a symbol of the Moon
9. Hannah Wright
Description: She always liked magic, and hoped to become a professional stage magician. She looks 17 years old and is a Dark-Skinned Redhead
. Considering the career she wanted, she has a habit of speaking a bit theatrically
. Her specialty is arcane magic (kind of like what the Mages in World of Warcraft
or the Wizards in Diablo III
can do), and she has the tiger shrike/Phorusrhacos
familiar. She also uses a sword like this one
Mount: Red Unicorn
10. Carter Phillips
Class: Bronze Dragonsoul Heir
Description: When he was killed by the Dark Stone Cutters' curse, he feared that he was going to hell, but a bronze dragon, living in a secret cave near the sea and was also killed by the curse, offered to merge their souls together to save each other. He looks 27, he has black hair and his previously brown eyes are now bronze in color. He also has dragon wings that are nearly as tall as he is.
Mount: Self-powered flight
There is also an unofficial 11th member: Michelangelo “Mikey” Gagliardi
Description: A 10-year-old boy who lost his family and became a ghost after the Dark Stone Cutters destroyed Kingsport with their curse. He has blue-grey eyes and reddish-brown hair. His familiar found him and took pity on him, and led him to Felicia, who adopted him as her own. He's unofficial because the other members consider him too young to join, but considering what happened to him, he steadfastly refuses to leave his new mother's side.
Weapon of choice: Lightning magic
, a wand, and the tegu/Tyrannosaurus rex
familiar, who also serves as his mount
