Defenders of Aylanae
Magitech Knight and Heir to House Gorn
A young man with black hair and blue eyes and a slender build. He dresses in simple but finely tailored clothes, primarily black in color. A pair of pistols are holstered to his belt, along with a finely crafted dueling sword.
Calim Gorn is the seventh child born to the Grand Duke of House Gorn and thus a future heir to that position. He is a young Imbued warrior, roughly 19 years old.
Being lower on the line of succession has made Calim somewhat indifferent to the politics of Aylanae, and he often seems indifferent to most things in general. In addition, he seems to lack many of the flashier and more impressive skills and powers of other Imbued, though he is physically fit and has finely tuned senses. He is also an accomplished Magitek Knight, piloting a customized Shiadar Assault Armor.
He seems to hold his older sister, Laventa, in high regard, and values her opinions and sentiments more than any other member of his family. The truth is much deeper than that however; the two of them are secret lovers, carrying on an incestuous relationship over the past four years. Due to the forbidden nature of their relationship however, they are only ever able to be seen as being close siblings in public, hiding the truth from everyone around them.
Calim cared little for politics, but at first sought to gain favor from his father, Grand Duke Tharian Gorn, in hopes of securing lands and a title for himself to carve out a place where he and Laventa could be together. However, once his father forced Laventa to be engaged to Sythe Zanyz IV, Calim eventually could no longer bear the thought of continuing to do his father’s bidding while watching his sister get married off to a man she doesn’t love. He has started a war of succession for the throne of House Gorn by revealing Tharian’s dirty dealings and embellishing upon them to the Council, and he has married Sylara Toress II to gain the backing of House Toress in his quest to see his father deposed so that the planned wedding between Laventa and Sythe can be stopped.
His rebellion was a massive failure due to the interference of fellow Dragon Band members Sefiros, Justinia Lastrium, and Taesian Stormblood, but all was not lost. Sythe confronted Calim directly after hearing rumors of his relationship with Laventa, and the two of them had somehow come to an arrangement where Calim would be reunited with his sister and the wedding to Sythe called off in exchange for some unspecified quid pro quo. Furthermore, he was also able to secure the promise of a divorce from Sylara Toress thanks to Sefiros agreeing to pledge himself to the Templar order. However, after complications arose and the divorce had to be delayed, Laventa decided she could wait no longer and that she would not accept anything less than Sylara’s death. Calim tried to argue against his sister, but the intensity of her jealousy and rage shocked even him, and he eventually relented to her will. Together, the two siblings murdered Sylara in cold blood by throwing her body off of Aylanae and into the ocean, thousands of feet below.
As punishment for their murder of Sylara, Calim and Laventa had a massive fine imposed upon them, more than they could ever possibly hope to pay off, and were remanded to the custody of Queen Cheisa Toress. Their fate afterward is as yet unknown.
