The People of Gallia

Recommended Posts

Preamble

Gallia was a kingdom of art, elegance, and the first stirrings of flight technology in a world that was bound to land and sea. It was famous for its delicious food, artistic talents, and opportunity for businesses to flourish. The Gallian/Gallican population was known for being the wealthiest in the world, possessing massive pools of natural resources, goods, and a powerful internal trading economy. Migrants from all over the world flocked to Gallia to seek a wider market for their businesses. Eventually, Gallia became the last standing superpower in the world, dwarfing even the Atlesian Port City of Acheron in its functionality as a trading hub. The Gallians/Gallicans are an artistic race of people, long having valued the study and development of culinary, aesthetic, and architectural sophistication.

 

Aphrystia

The trading city of Aphrystia is the home of the Gallian navy. Great economic prosperity and powerful military might have contributed to the power and dominance of Duke Luxbourg, allowing him a great degree of control over the Gallian government. Aphrystia is the centre of foreign politics, most countries conducting diplomacy directly at Luxbourg’s home state. Aphrystia contains mostly humans and some halflings.

Rheya

Rheya is the capital of Gallia. Meetings are held yearly at the extended Winter Solstice Celebrations. Home to the main bulk of the Gallia army and office of many powerful politicians, Rheya serves as the figurehead from which the rest of the empire of Gallia follows in suit. The population of Rheya largely consists of humans and elves, most of the upper to middle class, all highly educated and well versed in theory of magic.

Lucas Clause

Lucas Clause was a commendable soldier of the Gallian military, his character shaping him into a reliable and ambitious leader. He was comforting yet protective, contrasted with his unforgiving nature revealed in the midst of battle. He was a man of genuinity, never one to refrain from cracking jokes, and never one to hold back attempts in pursuing life's highest passions. Clause was a former military commander in Rheya from 1846-1849, his term ending due to his tragic death during the Battle of the Miroir brisé. Upon his death, the commander left behind a wedlock shared between him and his partner, Koralee Clause, as well as young Ethan Clause, the son he was never granted the chance to watch grow up.

Kora became the Duchess of Rheya during the Depression as she was the highest ranked living military operative in Rheya and one of the last soldiers from the history of the 13th Defence Division as majority fled. Kora began the great expansion of the Gallian Military which soon lead to the opening of the old mines that had been overrun by bounty hunters.

Luca Valentine

New Gallia Governor Luca Valentine has not always enjoyed the agency and independence which she desired. A long time ago, she was merely a Defense Lieutenant under Captain Koralee Clause (The rankings were reduced down to Captain being the highest until the military reflurished), during which she learnt discipline, tenacity and rigour, a far cry from her childhood as a pampered royal. Luca soon became distant from Rheya as she was commissioned into the colony of New Gallia soon being appointed as Governess for the first 4 years which was agreed upon in the Independency Treaty - stating that "For the first four years of New Gallia's semi-indepence, a Lieutenant or above shall overlook the nation as Governor". It is still unknown if Luca will stay in power as it turns to its 4th year.

She was born and raised in Herograd for most of her childhood by her parents, both skilled in medical practice. She was dragged into their shoes, entering into a life of medicine. The pink-haired girl enjoys conversation and discussion, finding herself acquainted with new individuals every day. In addition to her free-spirited nature, she has a bright mind, motivated by her infinite curiousity and hunger for discovery. Wren's yearning quickly grew beyond the science of medicine, her interest in philosophy settling elsewhere than the mundane walls of an infirmiry. To the girl's dismay, her parents could not bear support a daughter spiralling in rebellion and wanderlust, thus she fled Herograd to pursue the ideas of her own mind. She found herself in Gallia, originally making coin through a medic's work. To her pleasant surprise, Gallian development industries shifted strongly into the areas of invention and research, to which she found herself finding new employment as Rheya's Head Researcher in the area of flight. Rumour has it that she developed the world’s first working aircraft.

Brighton

A mild-mannered man, Brighton serves Rheya’s guard as Archcleric. He is equal parts mystic and physician, as his work has come to blend both supernatural and practical methods. Brighton’s research into medicinal spellbinding has afforded him a weighty position among his peers, eventually growing to spearhead medical operations in Gallia’s capital.

Born to vampiric lineage, Brighton once rejected the magick arts from which his blood was brewed. Following his brief alignment with a necromantic cult, he renounced the dark arts entirely, and pledged his life to healing and medicine. 

However, since the resurrection of his lover, Olivia Knight, through uncanny means, Brighton has come to better realize the nature of mystic arts. No longer viewing it through binary readings of good and evil, Brighton has concluded that sorcery, just as any other tool, is little more than a means to an end. 

“Think it light or dark, all magick is suffering; only its use is absolute.”
