To Win the Royal Heart: Suitors

From BluWiki

The Court Jester

You are the Court Jester. For years you have entertained the royal family with your antics and unique sense of humor. Now their daughter has come of age and is searching the kingdom for a Suitor...and you've got to prove you're more than just a fool. Or, barring that, that you're just a fool worthy of being a king. It would be a folly not to marry you!

What’s your name?

The Devil in Disguise

You are, quite literally, a Devil in Disguise. You've come from some far corner of some distant Hell to wed the orphan Princess. Maybe you're a demon prince looking to expand his realm, maybe you're the Adversary looking to solidify your hold over the mortal world, or maybe you're a devil who's lonely and genuinely loves the Princess. Whatever the case may be, the Princess is your prize and a quick trip back to Hell is what you have to look forward to if you fail.

The Foreign Prince

You have traveled far from a distant land to court the Princess of the kingdom. Luckily for you, her parents recent death has only sped up the process of courtship and you are moving in for the kill. You may have come to the kingdom purely for political reasons but now that you've met her, the Princess is actually quite fetching. Whether you're wooing her for love or power, woo her you must or you will return to your foreign kingdom empty handed. That wouldn't make papa very happy.

What’s your name?

The Knight

Courageous to a fault, or at least the stories say, you are one of the royal knights. Knighted while the king was still alive you distinguished yourself from the other military men with outstanding service...or at least outstanding boasts about your service. Regardless, while you were happy to serve your kingdom as its mailed fist you would be willing to retire from the service early to lead from a big cushy throne. The Princess is kinda cute too so it seems like a win-win situation.

What’s your name?

The Tomboy

You're not like other guys...uh, because you're not one. That's not going to stop you, though. You've taped down anything that might leave evidence to the contrary and you've made off to the castle to court the Princess. You've got a suitcase full of your father's old clothes and a vial of men's cologne. How could the Princess see through that? Unlike a lot of the other Suitors, you're sincerely interested in the Princess. Sincerely interested in parts of her anyway.

The Vizier

As the king's most trusted adviser, long have you been the power behind the throne. Too long. Now the dusty old man is in a grave where he belongs and the throne is ripe for the taking. You have carefully maneuvered any true competition into the gallows and are ready to step in and take the Princess for your own. And if anybody else shows up to dispute it? You'll just advise the Princess against their company.

The Wizard

From your distant tower you have watched the kingdom suffer in its ignorance. You dream of enchanted ice blocks in every hut, cooling peasants on a hot midsummer's day. You dream of an army of golems protecting the kingdom so that the soldiers might rest and keep their bodies intact. You dream of farms of plenty that harvest themselves. But, mostly, you dream about the Princess and that big empty throne. Maybe a love potion would do the trick?
