This is a Role Play community based on the books Kushiel's Dart and Kushiel's Chosen by Jacqueline Carey.
The role play is going to involve Adepts of the Night Court, and Patrons. These are characters that are going to be created by you all individualy, but based on the ideals of the night court. I don't want anyone using any of the characters from the actual books, because of the fact that people could get angry at other peoples interpretations of them, and jealous because they don't get to use that character.

You can create as many characters as you want. Post a bio of each new character before you introduce them. Try not to use other peoples characters without their permission, to avoid angering people.

The Thirteen Houses of the Night Court are -

Cannon: modesty

Make sure that any character you create matches the Canon of the house that you wish them to belong to, both in attitude, and physicaly.

I will delete anything I find offensive, i.e. poor treatment of others in the community, etc. So be careful.
