A Selection Inspired Roleplay

This is an rp based off of the Selection series. For those of you who haven tread the series, the Selection is about a dystopian America called Illéa where they have a caste system. A caste, for those who don’t know, is similar to a rank. Ones are royalty, twos are celebrities, threes are great minds, fours are business men, fives are artists, sixes do housework, sevens do outdoor work, and eights are the untouchables, theyre either homeless, runaways, or criminals. Last names in Illea also are based off of ones cast. http://theselection.wikia.com/wiki/Caste_System#Two.

Illéa is a monarchy. This rp will be set during Clarksons Selection and the north and southern rebellion will be starting. Illéa has a system where when they have a princess, they marry them off to another kingdom but if they have a prince, they have a Selection. A Selection is when 35 girls from the 35 different provinces get chosen to compete to marry the prince, who in this case, is Clarkson. This roleplay isn’t about the Selection though, it’s about the rebellions. Basically, you can be one of the selected but the Selection won’t be too important.

In Illea, not everyone is happy with the monarchy. So, there are the Southern and Northern rebels. The Northern rebels hope to work with the royals to demolish the castes and make a more fair Illéa, while, the Southern rebels want to destroy the monarchy and rule over Illéa and are not afraid to murder innocents, unlike the northern rebels. Basically, the two rebellions are against each other and the southern rebellion is constantlynattacking the palace.

Just for a bit more info on the Selection. In a Selection, the selected go on dates with the prince and are slowly narrowed down to six, the elite. Then, they’re narrowed down to two, which the prince will pick from.

Rules:
If you decide you want to be part of the selected, You’re character must be female and 16-20

Rp name: Azura Bright
Age: 17
Role: Northern Rebel
Province: Waverly
Caste: 3
Background: Azura grew up in a family of five. Her father was an engineer and her mother was a librarian. She had always dreamed of becoming a guard but she knew it was impossible. Females couldn’t be accepted into the draft. Still, she held onto that dream. When she was 9, her father and brothers joined the Northern rebels. Quickly, she joined as well, it was her chance to fight. Azura had always known her skills were wasted. She understood strategy as if it were a language she was fluent in. Still, when she joined the rebels, it wasn’t enough for her. She didn’t see the point in trying to make peace with the royals.
Desc: Azura has long brown hair that’s normally worn in a braid. She often wears a pair of jeans and a plain shirt. She looks kind of like like this: image

Personality wise, Azura isn’t a very pleasant person. She’s always calculating what’s best for her. She’s selfish, competitive, manipulative, and fake. She’s often putting on a smile for everyone and acting kind even though at every second she’s figuring out how to destroy them. Deep down, she’s not as bad though. As a child, she never understood jokes. She’d spend hours pondering them. Her mind was hardwired to only undestand the strategic and logical part of the human brain, she just couldn’t understand the other half.

(well, this is set in the future. In the early 1900’s, the average male was 5’9". Nowadays, The average Male is 5’11". So feasibly, She could be short at 5’7".)

(We should probably start)
Azura hurried around the library, helping her mother place books up on the shelf. “Azura! You could do that more neatly you know!” Her mother scolded. Azura groaned. She hated things like this. People were always trying to find peace. She had never understood that. Her father was always going on about how the rebels need to work with the queen, but she didn’t see how that would help. Azura knew her father didn’t agree, but she thought the southern rebels were right. The royals would never agree to what the rebels asked for, not without a fight.

(I checked the first book out from the library, ate lunch, and finished it in four hours. My brother told me I needed a life. I said, “I’ve got teen romances, I need nothing more.”)
