Nhylus's Ref by Dodgesmiley Nhylus's Ref by Dodgesmiley
Name: Nhylus

Age: 22

Bio: the youngest member of the royal family, Nhylus was Captain of the Guard (basically head general) of his brother's army at the age of 18. Skilled in both the ways of the sword and of politics, this young veteran lead his army into several victories during his short 3 years as their general, with fewest casualties possible (their kingdom is at war with the Sirens 😉). However, when he turned 21, he was forced onto the throne by his brother's sudden death, leaving him with the responsibility of the entire kingdom. The advisers opposed his reign, as they considered him too young, but in a few short months Nhylus had the kingdom not only rebuilding, but expanding, pushing the Sirens back into the deep. His wit and policies outranked his brother's by a long shot, but he'll never admit to it. 
A year after he took the throne, Nhylus vanished from the palace. The head adviser took his place while the army searched the kingdom, but he was nowhere to be found. Under the adviser's rule, the kingdom crumbled in a matter of months. The Sirens returned, bloodthirsty as ever, and the entire kingdom mourned the loss of their young king.

Thank you X3 I'm curious tho, What exactly is your group? Is it like a group who does trades or just a group who fangirls over mermen? Lol does it have a function? (I can't see it on the DA app, for some dumb reason it doesn't load groups 😒)

DA app doesn't have groups?! Wtf?

Anyway, my group is just for merman fans. I also make a monthly journal for people to advertise commissions. Just a simple group. =3
