Maerys joins Novus with a clean slate. No one in Novus knows who she is or where she is from other than herself. Her hopes are to return home one day and reclaim her rightful rank as Queen of Varak, acting King. She is ushered into Novus quickly and asked two questions nearly instantly upon arrival: which court (if any) and what rank? Her desire to reclaim the throne moves her desire to be soldier as she must learn to defend herself while also learning discipline and precision. She chooses Dawn Court as their values mirror hers most closely: wisdom, curiosity, honesty, neutrality, calmness. Pledging allegiance to God Oriens, her life in Novus begins swiftly.

i. maerys, dawn court soldier; grabbing a spot as a Dawn Court Soldier, Maerys learns her new home is within stark palace walls in an area known as Delumine.
ii. she was waiting for a sword; upon entering Delumine and settling down in Dawn Court and in her new rank as soldier, Maerys meets Regis who is a wise-beyond-his-years yearling.
iii. when snow falls, she listens; jumping right into her duties, Maerys begins patrolling the meadows in Delumine where she is approached by Fia who reveals little other than her desire to speak with the king.
iv. the trembling of a distant land (swp); while wondering around, Maerys is one of many who witness the explosion of a volcano.
v. a pilgrimage made strange (swp); the volcano has left behind a bridge in its wake. the bridge is very odd, though many choose to walk across it (including Maerys) despite the lurking sea monsters and strangeness it offers.
vi. how reality collapses (swp); the first of many step foot on a mysterious island, Maerys among them. this new land is for everyone to explore.
vii. the waves can see (swp); a strange unicorn statue has appeared by the entrance to the island. on its horn is a note that simple states "time is free, time is here", but what does that mean or entail?
viii. god whispers on the wind (swp); the unicorn statue note has been added onto by a dawn yearling. the little addition of "tempus" can only mean one thing - the god is among them.
ix. the taste of laurel and sable; once back at home, Maerys chooses to explore the Viride Forest in Delumine to acquaint herself with her new home when she is approached by Lasairian.
x. among granite peaks; with Vradara in tow, Maerys ventures where she hasn't before - denocte.
xi. song of the girl (relic hunt); Maerys and Vradara search for the mysterious and lost relic for only minutes before being approached by Isra and Boudika, two mares she still knows little about.
xii. awake, alive, and ready to play; Maerys takes a needed break from the island, venturing into new lands. in eluetheria plain, she meets the bold stallion Huehuecoyotl, who is quick to flirt with the girl.

she was powerful not because she wasn't scared,
but because she went on strongly despite her fear.
A man of little words, Dimitri prefers to observe others, probing strengths and weaknesses before introducing his own. He comes off as cool and aloof, but deep inside there is a small nugget of a heart he keeps hidden. Emotions are not weaknesses, but they also are not useful. He will cast aside his feelings for the task at hand and attempt to solve problems using reason and logic.

Dimitri is very reserved as well - a true warrior at heart. He is slow to act in violence and quick to defend those who cannot defend themselves. He doesn't think of himself in terms of good or evil. He simply IS and DOES what his head tells him is a choice that will lead to the most peaceful outcome. That isn't to say that he's unwilling to tip the scales if the need arises.

Because of this, he's been called "insensitive", "asshole-ish" and even "cold". He shrugs off all of these assessments as they do not matter in the end - what matters are his actions. Words, though powerful, are easily forgotten when you are saving someone's life, and if you kill them, who will remember anyway? Instead, he does admit to being gruff. He also admits that his patience is rather thin, especially to those who lack seriousness and engage in folly.

By folly, he means frivolous activities like dancing and partying. What is the point? Why engage in something so meaningless? If the goal is to find a mate, then by the gods, talk! Don't wiggle provocatively and then expect conversation. Dimitri has similar feelings about drinking. Don't drink. Period. There is no middle ground.

He is not a religious man in that he prays devoutly to the gods, but he recognizes their existence and their strength as superior beings. Part of him chafes at the idea that there are imperfect supreme overlords, but knowing that there's nothing to be done about it makes him keep his head down. "I don't speak often, but when I do..."
