About

Queen Mara's Royal Guard are hand-selected by the queen herself. She has 100 royal guards and they are chosen from those who have displayed tactical nous, strong war capabilities, unwavering commitment to queen and country, and bleed Kaballan. As a pre-requisite of being chosen for the royal guard, candidates must swear an oath of death and destruction to the Marakai.



Kaballan biology was once very different. It was more pure. For years they enjoyed the luxury of the Red Hex above them, which delivered clean air, reliable energy and weather systems, like the rest of the world is used to. That all changed in 10th era when war broke out between the lesser nations of Kabal ( as they were known before they formed a union ) and an alliance that contained Marrakis, Murdu, and Dumatra. More information on the war can be found by visiting the Union of Kabal on the interactive map.



The war lasted some 70 Earth years and resulted in extensive damage to the Red Hex above the lesser Kaballan nations. This damage resulted in the single biggest tragedy in Anarkand's history, resulting in the deaths of over 100 million inhabitants between all the nations. The fallout from this war, known as the Sona War, meant that the physiological capability of the Kaballan people was heavily affected.



The air was impure, pollution became a major issue, the weather systems that they had been dependant on for centuries had began to fail, and even the most basic of lifes requirements, such as breathing, became difficult.



The Marakai, who were sworn enemies of the Kaballans, performed one of the greatest u-turns in Anarkian history by aiding their enemies. They helped restore parts of the Red Hex, afforded the Kaballan people much needed food and water, clothing, engineers and builders, to try to save the country from complete annihilation.



The Empire of Radamis also played a huge role in redeveloping the country by encouraging the forming of a union of lesser states, ( now, The Union of Kabal ), which now no longer contains any individual countries. This union has surpassed all expectations.



The Radamis Empire aided in the development of breathing apparatus for each of the inhabitants, and began building huge pipelines and structures across Kaballan lands that would filter clean, non-polluted air into the country, allowing the people to thrive once more. Of course, this 'kindness' shown by Radamis simply guarantees the empire have a powerful ally in the region against the Marakai and the 12e Alliance.



Due to the issues surrounding air and pollution, the Kaballans now wear permanent breathing apparatus from birth.



Kaballans are genetically tainted due to the Sona war. They are getting stronger as the genome develops and changes through the generations. Kabal's population is slowly but surely developing strong immunity to the various pollutants in their water and in their air. This has resulted in discourse about the potential threat from the Union of Kabal in the future, and is a growing concern amongst 12e Alliance members.



Kaballans are very loyal to the mother and father of the union. Very rarely do they leave the area, although diplomats, explorers, and other political leaders for the country will travel outside. Many Kaballans live in fear of the outside world as they are, ironically, unsure that they will survive the changes to cleaner air, cleaner environments, cleaner water, and stronger RED Hex components.



Kaballans will grow up to 7 feet tall. Depending on where their essence has come from, they are usually quite strong. Much like humans, there is a short infantile stage, leading to pre-adolescence, adolescence, then adulthood.



When a Kaballan has been chosen for the Queen's Royal Guard, he or she will be given the opportunity to reject the offer and leave the army entirely, or accept the offer and join as one of 100 elite individuals at the queens side.



A life of absolute luxury ensues, and becoming the king's guard or part of the queen's guard is considered to be the highest honour amongst army men and women.



Royal guard members will be given their own quarters, staff, allowance, and 50-acre land, complete with gardens, a huge mansion, and plenty of recreational space. This land is directly under one of the few areas where the Red Hex above is fully operational, thus resulting in beautiful landscapes, clean air, fresh water, and a thriving eco-system, complete with perfect weather, just like the old Kaballan lands before the Sona War.



Royal guard are not allowed to leave the Union of Kabal and are sworn to protect queen and country.
