The Prince's Blade

The Prince's Blade is a title and tradition that dates back to Starenell when ruled by the Bekker family. During the reign of Captain-General Thomas Bekker, a solidier named Sabrier K'Tan came about. His name, meaning sword of the gods, was not recognized for its potential. He was actually a descendant of the oringinal ruling line of Starenell, the K'Tans, or Gods. He grew in rank and power, eventually becoming one of the Captain-General's key operatives. Thomas Bekker rewarded him with immortality. Sabrier wrote a detailed journal, stored in the Staric Archives. Each Blade continiues the journal, and it is millenia old. It is only fully acessible by the Prince's Blade, who adopts the name Sabrier K'tan, and the First Prince. Thsi was passed down from Blade to Blade. Eventually, one of the Blades, one of the greatest ever, was horribly scared in a battle. He esacped with his life , but He had to forever wear a headdress thast masked his head. It is built into the Blades body, and only removed when he dies. A new mask is built for every blade. The mask represents the sacrifices a Blade must make in service to his prince.

History of Starenell:
Starenell was once a terrible land ruled by demons, but after a centuries-long war, celestial being took over. They created peace in the land, and ruled in the form of the K'Tan family, then left. The K'Tan family ruled for a while and disappeared, their stewards, the Bekkers ruled as Captains-General, not Prince as the K'Tan had done. The K'Tan family returned, eventually granting Starenell great technology (Going FT). Starenell discovered the Kearny0-Fuchida drive, and explored new planets. The current system has evolved over a long time.
