You play as the heir to the throne. Loved and cherished, you are next in line to inherit the throne from your doting parents. As years go by, your relationship with your twin sister slowly frays, until one fateful night when you are confronted with malice and hatred from your own blood and bone. When the palace falls, and your twin cannot be found, you are whisked away- the sole member of the royal family. When mysteries, betrayals and stories are uncovered, as the crown weights heavily on your head, choices, loyalties and lives placed into your own hand, you must decide what to do next. Will you fall under the turbulent tides of the burdensome crown, or will you rise above the challenges and lead your kingdom to victory?
Lieutenant Blanche: a lieutenant in the royal army, known for his ruthlessness and skill on the battlefield. Tall and broad-shouldered, with icy eyes that freeze you to the bone, he is cold and stoic- even to you, the princess herself. Detached from anything and everything, you can’t help but wonder if it’s possible to befriend him- and dare to hope, maybe become more?
Lieutenant Carnell: your loyal lieutenant with his ruffled chestnut hair, his smile full of warmth that strips away all your negative thoughts. Tanned golden skin and vibrant brown eyes might just make your heart skip a beat. But when his smile drops, when his eyes dull, you can’t help but think he’s hiding something behind all that laughter. Can you teach him to confront his own past, or will you simply leave him be?
Private Kingsley: tall, dark and handsome. The raven haired soldier is charismatic, charming and always has a mischievous glint in his eye. Full of fierce determination, challenging his superiors often has deemed him to be a ‘troublemaker’. Confident and rebellious and always up to no good, you can’t help but be drawn to him. Fueled by his fiery ambition, you know he would sacrifice anything to be lieutenant- even you. Will you be able to tone down his ambition, or will it destroy you instead?
