Located along the western shorelines in the Kingdom of Farira was a place by the name of Glen Harbor. Its bustling seaside town was commonly considered to be the kingdom’s crown jewel, or to be more exact, its shimmering pearl by the sea, as it had been known for as long as any living person could remember. Here, ships from all around the known world would pull into the harbor, bringing with them every manner of splendid goods to trade; from rare, imported wines and exotic spices, to luxurious textiles and gems of every color, and the local merchants were always abundantly pleased to trade with them. And here, ships from Farira would leave the harbor, and carry with them their trade-goods to lands both distant and near. This was a town where the salty, blue waves of the ocean splashed upon the rocks and sands of the shore: a place visited by sailors, mermaids, merchants, and pirates.
Overlooking it all, was a massive palace with smooth, white, marbled pillars and walls that shined under the sun. Gahavraas Palace was the property’s proper name, but it was better known as The Sand Castle: reference to both its location on the beach, as well as the fact that its Chief-Architect during the palace’s construction was a man by the name of Leonardo Sand. In the time this story takes place, it served as home to the royal family.
And so, on the shores of the port-town of Glen Harbor, with its many merchants and artisans, and its shining palace, this story begins.
