This is for Tochi Onyebuci's book series, Beasts Made of Night. (The second book is Crown of Thunder.)
You may make your character which can be aki, a regular Kosian, a Mage, gearhead, tastahlik, or one of the royal family members. You may not be the king or queen though. The people who live in Kos all have dark skin of varying shades. They also have generally short names. (EX: Taj, Kela, Bo, Sade) You may have 3 characters max.
This roleplay takes place 50 years BEFORE the books. So Taj and the rest of the characters haven't been born. It will also never happen, you can do whatever you want.
To enter, remix the project! Then you can roleplay in the comments. :) OR fill out the bio.

I know this isn't a very popular book series, but I really love it. If you haven't read the books, you can still enter! (there's an explanation further down)
Royal Family: Evenesque ( @Tmermaid)
Explanation- You live in Kos, a walled kingdom. The rulers are corrupt, and most normal villagers look down on them- or rather up. The main city is in a dip in the earth, and it's dirty, dusty, and filled with pickpockets, theives, and other unsavory characters. The royal family lives on a ridge overlooking the town. In Kos, the royal family have to be 'pure.' So aki have to Eat their sins. Aki are children (they rarely live to adulthood) who's pupils have turned white. When that happens, the aki gain the ability to Eat sins. First though, a Mage must use magic to draw the sin out of the sinner. The sin will take the form of a inisisa, or sin-beast. It is a black animal made of sin. The aki then has to kill the sin-beast. The aki then opens his mouth, and the sin goes down his throat. (he/she/they Eat it) Then, on the aki's skin, a tattoo of that inisisa will form. (a sin-spot) A gearhead is a person with automail. Basically, they were born with half of their limbs missing and they had them replaced with automail. (alot like prostetic limbs) Also I forgot to say before: the royal family rarely commisions aki, and they only commision very powerful ones, and very rarely. Mages are paid, and then a small portion of that is given to aki. Aki are treate like trash by most people, because they're covered in sin. Aki use dagas, which are daggers strapped to an armband, to fight with.
