Name: Princess Sunset (Tech)
Kingdom: Sunset Cloud
Nestled against a mountain that draws masses of clouds to it, Sunset Cloud kingdom specialises in wringing beautiful pure colours from the sunset drenched clouds. This colour is then used as paint, dye and even sold to picky vampires seeking the perfect shade.
Personality: patient | confident | melodramatic | impulsive | clingy
Being raised to inherit the rule of the kingdom, Tech has developed plenty of confidence around people. He is also quite capable of sitting through long ceremonies and discussions, a trait neither of his older sisters have managed. However once his goodwill his been expended he can and will lapse into “I don’t feel like it, woe is me” melodrama, and disappear from the castle grounds to mingle with the kingdom’s residents. He likes meeting new people, but be wary of befriending him as he tends to semi-worship anyone who hangs out with him more than once.
In known history, the Sunset Cloud kingdom has only ever had females as rulers. While Kings were present they have always been secondary, important for the continuation of the monarchy rather than holding any power.
The heir to the throne has almost always been the first born female, if not the second, identified by pale blue skin very unlike the common reds, oranges and purples. With this generation of royals though, neither of the girls born carried the trait that would mark them as the next ruler; and then he was born.
Since the Queen’s hair reached the bleach-point 2 years ago, Tech has taken over the official responsibilities of running the kingdom. Alongside the exciting jobs of organising cloud-draining schedules, managing the colour inventory and generally maintaining happiness for the kingdom’s residents, Tech also has to pretend he’s a girl.
Due to the long history of female rulers, and the myths of any male rulers turning into bloodthirsty tyrants during their invariably short reigns, it was decided shortly after Tech’s birth that he must at least present to the public as a Princess. This was ingrained in him from a young age, and with the example of his older sisters learnt how to carry himself as a ‘lady’, though away from the public eye it’s pretty obvious he’s anything but lady-like.
His favourite way to pass time, other than participating in the cloud-drainings personally, is going into town incognito; the only time he gets to both dress and act like a boy. Generally he just joins in games in the town square, but a few times before he became the ruling royal he wandered out of town to do some A D V E N T U R I N G. It was on one of these ventures he met Henry, was given a name other than “New Boy” or “Prin”, and essentially laid the groundwork for the kingdom to have it’s own patron Adventurer.
Nowadays as the kingdom starts to expand Tech likes to organise research expeditions with Henry, exploring uncovered ruins for clues about the Sunset Cloud kingdom’s forgotten past.
» For most of his life, ‘Princess Sunset’ has been known as exactly that. Variations included ‘Sunset’, ‘Sunny’ and ‘Prin’, all of which Tech felt were very unimaginative but had little say about
» ‘Tech’ is short for ‘technicolour’ which is the first thing Henry said when they met, as an astonished comment on Tech’s extraordinary hair
» Tech rather enjoys wearing the floopy dresses his Princess role calls for. Mostly due the amazing and perfect dyes used on every single one of his royal outfits, but also because they swish and that’s fun~
» Tech is not at all oblivious to his precarious position of imitating the opposite gender. While he has hopes to one day step up as King rather than Queen, he know that he needs lots of evidence to disperse the myths before this becomes remotely possible
» The above is an affecting factor as to why he’s not already seeking a ruling partner; ruling Princesses typically step up to the position of Queen once they take a partner to be their King, but Tech refuses to take a male partner just to further the shroud of deception
Catchphrase: So many C O L O U R S to collect~
