Staring At The Stars by darkspeeds Staring At The Stars by darkspeeds
"Star light so bright, it shines with might, dreams of tomorrow shall be realised by night..."

*High above the windmill tower four members of the Royal House who defend the Kingdom of Mercia look up into the starry night. An ocean of stars can be seen, it is a sign of magnificence and good luck.

Airlith: *folding his arms calmly and says the following with adoration* "My father taught me those words Parmir... Star light so bright, it shines with might, dreams of tomorrow shall be realised by night..."

Parmir: *sits with his legs crossed and staring at the night sky...* "Yeah..." *he smiles softly and appreciates the glorious lights that shine brightly above him*

Airlith: *he smirks at his companion who is very much like a little brother to him. He follows what Parmir and the others are doing - staring at the night sky gracefully*

Belling: “It’s so beautiful… I’ve never seen so many stars before in my lifetime” *a gentle priestess sits behind the two and has her hands form a close, as if she was praying, lays it lightly on her lap*

“It must be a miracle…”

Johnathan: *the priest with the shiny nose stars carefully into the night sky and agrees with Belling* "Is this a message from our heavenly fathers? A sign of hope perhaps Sir Airlith?”

Airlith: *the young paladin nods his head in the direction of Johnathan and Belling and turns his head back towards his little companion Parmir. He stares at him for a while and is amazed at how much he has grown*

“Tomorrow will be your first official mission, are you ready for it little guy…?”

Parmir: *without thought he turned his head towards his mentor Airlith and nodded in agreement.*

“I won’t disappoint you Air! I’m confident that I will succeed!”

Airlith: “Mmh! Good.” *nods back approvingly*

*Parmir turns his head back and continues to stare into the beautiful sky. He is very excited about tomorrow for it will be his first real venture with the holy guards. They plan to go deep into the forest and out to the mountains where Castle Wolfenwood is. Their mission will be to deliver vital medicine to heal the king who is significantly ill from a disease caught from his visit to the village. The king must be healed before peace negotiations take place for the North and South Kingdoms of Mercia*

Parmir: “I won’t let you down Mum… Dad…!” *he whispered to himself and closed his eyes for a while. Clenching onto his memorabilia ruby necklace he stands up and prepares for his journey tomorrow morning.*

So much creativity in one pic... I really like how you are slowly expanding the backstory of your characters.

For some reason, I can see these guys in a Fire Emblem game.
Airlith: Paladin
Belling: Cleric
Johnathan: Bishop
Parmir: Brat *is mauled to death by millions of Parmir fangirls*
