WebSerialNovel of Website/DeviantArt, '''[[http://okadu-realm.deviantart.com/ Okadu Realm]]''' is a {{Fantasy}} WebOriginal and comprises works set in the [[ConstructedWorld fictional Okadu Realm]]. The main characters thus far are all seventeen, around the age of the author. Locations in the Okadu Realm are [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Town of Saint Robin]] which is in Hijo's Kingdom, Hijo's Kingdom itself, and Gola's Kingdom.

Two of the three main characters originate from the Town of Saint Robin, Jai TheHero and Lilia - TheChick and possibly a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. Grae is from Hijo's Kingdom but it is not specified where. Jai and Grae are both Dragon Callers, who [[ShapedLikeItself call dragons]].

Along with the main characters, there are the characters of legend. These are [[PatronSaint Saint Robin]], [[TheGoodKing Hijo]], and [[WellIntentionedExtremist Gola]]. Other characters have also been mentioned.

!!Tropes that apply to ''Okadu Realm'' are:
* AcademyOfAdventure: Jai and Grae's ''Dragon Caller training school''.
* AllInTheEyes: The residents of the Town of Saint Robin have green eyes, except for Jai. His oddly-coloured eyes give away that he is a Dragon Caller.
* AlliterativeName: Lilia Le-eena. Now try say that when drunk.
* AmazingTechnicolorWorld: With a description bordering on SceneryPorn, the Hidden Haven's [[http://futarinokizuna.deviantart.com/art/Hidden-in-Red-339045435 inspiration art]] is ''majestic''.
** Possibly with AmazingTechnicolorWildlife, the dragons being ''"nearly gold and grey-blue, the colour of the sun and the colour of the restless sea combined"''.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Jai Holten, Grae Ringback and Lilia Le-eena with Mika, Kegin, Darto and Raty, Gola and Hijo.
* BilingualBonus:
** There are random inserts of UsefulNotes/{{Spanish|Language}}, like ''casas pintadas blancas'', which is excusable as there isn't really an English way to concisely describe [[http://us.123rf.com/400wm/400/400/philipus/philipus0712/philipus071200161/2206504-traditional-spanish-white-houses-in-malaga-spain.jpg those]] [[http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/07/05/article-1197637-05955E14000005DC-543_468x286.jpg Mediterranean]] [[http://thefabweb.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Villas-in-Es-Migjorn-Gran-in-Menorca-Spain.png buildings]]. It literally means 'houses painted white', but translates better as 'whitewashed houses'.
** "Calle" is used instead of street and "edificio" instead of building. Not because the author doesn't know the English, though, because both 'street' and 'building' are used in the writing.
** "Hijo" is the Spanish for 'son'. This is the name of TheGoodKing.
* BringMyRedJacket: Lilia could wind up as a LittleDeadRidingHood or LittleRedFightingHood as in the last 'scene' she was in she was wearing a long red dress, in a room full of (mostly) red plants, with her red hair. Though she is, to begin with, a woman in white.
** The town of red-heads was also the only place attacked by Gola, though this could be due to it being a MiddleOfNowhereStreet or that it was the nearest part of Hijo's Kingdom to Gola's.
* CallToAdventure: An old man lands in the lone town in the middle of nowhere and tells a boy he has great powers before whisking him away on the back of a dragon.
* CloseKnitCommunity: the Town of Saint Robin appears to be this.
* CreatorProvincialism: Author does not mind saying that ''"The Town of Saint Robin may or may not be largely or in part based upon Es Migjorn Gran and the summer festival on the Festes de Sant Cristòfol."'' Of course, Es Migjorn Gran is inland and rather flat, and nowhere near a desert.
%%* DescriptionPorn
%%* DoomedHometown: [[ContrivedCoincidence Just so happens]] to get attacked by dragons.
* FreeRangeChildren: They can't escape the town but they can go missing onto rooftops without parental questioning. [[ShouldntWeBeInSchoolRightNow They don't seem to have school, either]].
* GratuitousSpanish: Amongst the Spanish the author does know, and will use, the English for, there is "Pico", for which the English ('peak') is never used. The way pico is used in Spanish is different to the way peak is in English, and the author may very well know this. In the work, replacing any instance of Pico with peak wouldn't make sense, as the usage is different.
%%* HeterosexualLifePartners: Jai and Grae.
%%* InterspeciesFriendship: Lilia and the dragons.
* LaboriousLaziness: Jai and Grae cannot be bothered to get out of bed and so [[DuctTapeForEverything construct a ridiculously complicated contraption]] to [[HandWave transport them]] [[InsaneTrollLogic by means]] to their shower.
* MeaningfulName: Lord Hijo, hijo in Spanish being 'son' but is used specifically when referring to a male child - and sometimes instead of chico for just any male child - which shows innocence.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent:
** They're all one colour to start with.
** The Dragon Callers (minus Gola), so far, come under InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons. Otherwise, dragons have plot!
* PeopleOfHairColour: All the people of the Town of Saint Robin are red-heads. Except Jai who has a natural blonde streak.
* PowerDyesYourHair: It is implied that [[MulticoloredHair the gold in Jai's native red hair]] is due to his being a Dragon Caller.
* RedIsHeroic: Because of the LawOfChromaticSuperiority, we have Lilia being a force to be reckoned with.
* SelfInsertFic: Though [[WordOfGod the naming was a coincidence]], the author's first name is Jaia (Hah-yee-ah) and the main character Jai (Jy). They're around the same age, too. Even though the name was accidental, it is probably safe to assume that the author is living out fantasies through these characters, as they do.
* [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Shameless Nudity]]: When Jai's ModestyTowel falls off he is totally fine baring all around Grae, but when the messenger kid [[{{Mooning}} sees his backside]] he grabs the towel again - though it is portrayed as more for the kid's benefit.
** Because there is familiarity between the pair, Jai doesn't falter when Grae just walks up to the bathroom as he's showering.
%%* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Lilia.
* SinglePaletteTown:
** Where everyone is red-haired and [[CutAndPasteSuburb the houses are all white]].
** The Hidden Haven is mostly red, red trees, red grass, Lilia in a red dress.
* SmallSecludedWorld: Residents have no clue if there's anything beyond TheWallAroundTheWorld.
* TechnicolorEyes: Jai's are ''"nearly gold and grey-blue, the colour of the sun and the colour of the restless sea combined. The colour of dragons."''
* ThirstyDesert: Separates the Town of Saint Robin from Gola's Kingdom, it is the highest elevated (bar the Pico) and Southernmost point of the town, complete with angry raging sandstorm and other untold terrors, making it literally impassable ([[ImpassableDesert but not in the gaming sense]]).
%%* UndefeatableLittleVillage: [[DavidVersusGoliath Robin versus Dragons]].
