Posted 24 March 2011 - 02:54 PM
The Society of Earth
Those born into the Society of Earth are trained to be strong leaders. When a baby is born, it lives at home until the age of 4. Once at the age of 4, children are sent off to a special boarding school. There, they are educated in military strategy, academics, sports, combat, and leadership. They stay at the boarding school until age 18. Then, they are given a test. The test consists of 2 parts. A written test and a combat test. If the student passes the test, they are assigned a career by the elder council. That is the career that they stick with for the rest of their lives.
The Society of Water
Those born into the Society of Water are trained to be Battlemages and assassins. When a baby is born, it is immediately sent to a boarding school to be raised by a supervisor. At the age of 6, the child's supervisor suggests a career to the elder council. If the council agrees, the child is trained in that career. Children showing promise in the art of magic are trained to be Battlemages along with their career. The rest are trained to be assassins. At the age of 25, the adults are forced to fight a monster. If the adult succeeds, they are given a house and a place to practice their career. If the adult loses, they die.
The Society of Fire
Those born into the Society of Fire are trained to be warriors. When a baby is born, if it is too weak to be a soldier, it is sent to school to be trained in a career. If the baby is strong, it is sent to a boot camp to be raised by a supervisor until it is old enough to be trained. The child is trained until age 18. Once the child comes of age, he or she goes before the council to be judged. They are stripped naked and given a full body examination. They are put through strength and mental tests. If they pass, they are sent to live in a military compound. There, they wait to be called up to fight in a war.
The Society of Air
Those born into the Society of Air are trained to be scientists or soldiers. 6 years after being born, they start school while living at home. Once the child is 12 years old, they are given a path to follow based on their grades. A child with excellent grades is trained to be a scientist. A child with lower grades is trained to be a soldier. Once 18 years old, the child finishes school. There, they may choose to get a job, enlist in the military if they were trained as a soldier, or become a scientist if they were trained as one.
These societies do not like each other very much. For years, arguments between these societies have pushed them further and further towards the brink of war. After a society member is killed, suspicions rise. Out of anger, the societies declared war on each other.
The direction of this war all depends on you.

18 years old
On the outside, she seems cold and uncaring. But, once you get to know her, she is an extremely kind young woman. She only acts the way she does so people don't think of her as the weak female stereotype.
Spirit of the Flame (Large broadsword)
Bella, being a female, had it hard at the boarding school. She was always picked on and called weak by her male classmates. One day, she snapped and slaughtered 30 students. Instead of being punished, she was praised by the elders for her strength and courage. She was awarded the "Spirit of Flame" as a gift from the elders. This sword would increase her combat ability and give her the magic of fire. After this incident, she was respected greatly by her classmates. Now that she is 18, she is getting ready to take her test. She hopes to not only pass, but she also hopes to be named a General.
Andrew (Andy) Rampart
18 years old
He is an extremely kind person. Unlike his sister, Bella, he goes to no lengths to hide it. Sometimes, people take advantage of his kindness and end up hurting him. Those people have to answer to his sister. Andy loves his sister with all his heart and he would do anything to her. Andy doesn't have very many real friends. Oddly enough, he likes it that way.
Sister's Love (A dagger)
Throughout Andy's entire life, he grew up thinking he didn't have a sister. He grew up thinking he was alone in the world. Still, he kept his kind and cheerful disposition. At age 9, he met a girl. He discovered that this girl was his sister. From that day forward, they spent every moment together. They protected each other and trained together. Now, he prepares to take the test alongside his sister.
