Every year in the city of Hayfeld, a massive summer faire was held. It boasted vendors and traders from all over the continent, sporting events and competitions, cook-outs and more. It was too early in the summer for it, yet, but as he wandered the streets of his city of Hayfeld, King Merrick the Tranquil could tell that the market place was already gearing up for the event.
Every stall was packed full of new goods and foodstuffs to trade, and he was certain that there were at least three newly-constructed stands for incoming merchants. Strange faces filled the market, the city's biggest inn was already full to capacity, and even the lower-class taverns had guests paying for floor-space every night.
These were the smart folk, who had the forethought to arrive earlier than the rest of the crowds and stake out a place for themselves. They'd be waiting here for at least a fortnight, setting up shop or staking out portions of unused pasture land in the hopes of getting the best view of the race track come harvest time.
The King wandered up and down these crowded streets, body guards before and behind, and smiled and welcomed as many of those new merchants as he could find. He was truly only visiting the market with the intention of viewing the latest shipments of equines brought in from around the globe, but he appeared for all the world as though his sole intentions were to meet and greet these new, friendly faces.
By the time he reached the edge of town where the vast network of corrals, round pens and stables were, the sun had crept past its zenith and was headed toward the horizon. He'd missed his afternoon meal, but the excitement of perhaps finding a new, prized steed amongst the rabble in the corrals kept his appetite at bay.

Character's Name: Your choice
Adoptable Character's Type: Friend, Advisor, Frenemy
Recommended Face Claim: None - Choose your own!
Details About Adoptable: An older man or woman, one who has experience in their selected field. People who are Declan's contemporaries. These councilors don't have to be best friends with Declan. They can be "frenemies", they can have a love-hate relationship, or they can despise one another. Just as long as the Advisor does his job well, you have a lot of flexibility with this role.
Other Info: It would be unrealistic to have characters fill these roles who are young. The idea is to have people who are world-wise to coach Declan and help him be a good ruler. Please don't submit "child prodigy" types.
Open Advisor Positions: Military Advisor (Defense) • Financial Advisor/Treasurer • Trade Advisor • Religious Advisor • Intelligence Advisor

<div id="app-details">As King of Aerlion, Declan Merrick has a lot of responsibility resting on his square shoulders. Raised by capable and caring parents, the royal took over his father's throne at the tender age of twenty, and has been ruling with a fair and just hand ever since. He endeavors to rule his kingdom with a gentle hand, but has little patience for criminals. Sometimes his temper gets the better of him, and a man might find himself punished rather harshly for a relatively minor crime, but for the most part, Declan matches punishments to the crimes committed.
<p>When it comes to Romance, it can be said that King Declan is a light-of-love. He has yet to take a bride, knowing full well that he may need to wed in order to secure a peace treaty or other advantage for his kingdom. Therefore, the man has taken many lovers in the past, whether they be members of his royal staff, or the younger daughters of local nobility. It's entirely possible that he has a bastard or two living ordinary lives out in the world, somewhere.</p>
<p>It was Declan's father who instilled in him his love of horses; the King has carried that love from childhood on into adulthood and made great strides in the furthering his kingdom's particular breeds. He keeps several excellent mounts himself: one for racing, battle, trail riding, hunting and parades, respectively. As he does not have children to spoil, his horses receive most of his care and attention. They see frequent grooming, are bathed with perfumed water, fed the best quality grains and fruits, and housed in top of the line stables which are kept scoured clean. </p>
<p>Due to his Kingdom's specialty in all things equine, Declan is building a large calvary to supplement his army's ranks. Unlike the foot soldiers, archers and spies, the King's equine forces can cover vast distances in a fraction of the time, making them ideal as emergency reserves, for flanking maneuvers, or to lead great charges on the front lines.</p>
<p>In the battle for the throne, King Merrick makes a compelling argument: his rule is fair, his punishments (mostly) just, and his loyalty is unswayed by the concerns of a foreign wife. Those who wish to serve under a King who rules honestly, modestly, and without greed would do well to bolster his ranks.</p>
