The Eyes of Yocasta


An elite unit dedicated to The Queen.

Queen Yocasta’s mother and father were murdered in a coup by an army general.When Yocasta used her skills and beauty to defeat him and take the throne, she decided to create an elite and utterly loyal military unit to prevent such a thing happening again. She was young and beautiful when she set it up. The guards were carefully selected. They were paid well and trained in guard duty, as bodyguards, policemen,and spies. When on open duty they wear iron chainmail armour with the symbol of an eye on the surcoat (protects the armour from rain) and carry shortswords.

Yocasta is never seen publicly without at least ten of them by her side.

They guard her and the Royal Palace and they also track down criminals and act as police,helping the ordinary people as well as dealing roughly with any rebellions. They sometimes dress in normal clothes to act as spies to uncover plots against the Queen.The ordinary subjects are unsure what to think of them.They like the stability which they represent and applaud the catching of criminals,but hate and fear being spied upon.

They swear an oath of loyalty to Yocasta when they join. All of them like her and many would do anything for her, even an assassination beyond Valermoore’s borders. When she got married it was to one of them. He became the Royal Consort, as she feared that to give him the title of King might damage her political position.

An alright piece of setting background, but why do "all of them like her?" It sounds like these men are highly privileged, in one way or another, since they love her so. Still, I would not block the potential for strife and deceit, not even among these men... Or perhaps especially not among these men.

It is possible that one could strike at the Queen, but why would he, when he is paid so well? The unit is the best paid and the best treated in the armed forces so it would be unlikely to mutiny, and any one person who struck Yocasta down would pay with his life.They are indeed privileged...high pay, an interesting job with duties that change each day,their familes are provided for,and they are respected and feared by many.

Also I was stating the *offical position*. I should have made it clearer.

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
