Table of Contents

Children
The most amazing mage in the country, the cleverest, most powerful and most skilled—and so the only one I would ever accept to marry.
 

Let's examine how amazing he is

 
Family
  • Last heir of an old noble House known for some specific magic but not particularly powerful magically or politically.
  • Worse, his parents wasted what little money they had, so he really didn't have the best start in life and what he's accomplished is even more of a miracle.
  • Thankfully, they're all dead now—most probably at his hands!
  • Body
  • Extremely handsome, tall, with dark hair, blue eyes, and looks very regal.
  • His clothes are always elegant and tasteful—he's undoubtedly grown up aware of the importance of appearances.
  • Education
  • Graduated from Ravance University thanks to scholarships.
  • Obtained several masteries: maths, history, engineering, runic magic, rituals (obtained in another country of course), wards and is currently studying healing.
  • Was the national duelling champions the 7 times he deigned to participate and utterly destroyed the competition.
  •  
    Skills
  • Great amount of power and knows how to use it fluidly and precisely, giving him incredible duelling speed and deadly accuracy.
  • He's taken an interest in all fields of magic but seems to specialise in intent-based magic for duelling and rituals. Because of this he is to leader of the Dark society.
  • Still amazing at everything that catches his attention. All that competence is super sexy.
  • Great strategist and manipulator—always fun to see him play with people.
  • Jobs
  • Ex-general in the military.
  • Independent researcher of many fields of magic.
  • Political leader of the Dark faction as our Dark Lord.
  • Wanted criminal.
  • Future king.
  • Hobbies
  • Getting masteries apparently!
  • And duelling the members of his inner circle.
  • I need to find more about this if I want to seduce him...
  • I've taken note of his food tastes at least.
  •  
    Personality
  • He naturally has the arrogance to go with his amazing skills, but has the charisma and cleverness to make it forgivable.
  • He's very curious about everything and loves learning—we'd fit very well together!
  • Manners
  • One great characteristics of his and a proof of his intelligence is the impeccable manners he uses with absolutely everyone regardless of their social classes, power, and usefulness to him.
  • Too many people lash out at anyone they perceive to be beneath them, thus creating long-lasting resentment and a burning desire for retribution.
  • Not him—and that's very sexy of him.
  • Leadership style
  • Appreciates his minions showing common sense and initiatives as well as knowing their limits and when to ask for help.
  • A great person to wok for and always reward his people's success handsomely.
  • However, stays a Dark Lord, and like all of them he doesn't suffer fools and people getting in his way—very attractive ruthlessness.

    Life Goals
    Take control of the country and put it back to rights!
     

    Dark Lording

     
    Lord Cenlys spent years in foreign countries to study differences in magic practices and wrote lots of fascinating and well-considered academically books and articles. Trouble started when he came back to Nélannie and openly flaunted the ridiculous laws in place here to restrict magic. Unsurprisingly, the Light took offence and began a campaign of aspersions against him. Rather than attempt to deny them, Lord Cenlys has embraced the title of Dark Lord and the associated expectations.  
    Military past
    It was to serve in the army that Lord Cenlys came back to Nélannie. During the war against Illinie, he rose to the rank of general, but he was dismissed "in disgraced" for practising human sacrifices on the battlefield—and why would killing and torturing enemy soldiers be perfectly fine, but doing so over a runic diagram suddenly cause problems? Exchanging our wounds for theirs should be standard practice!
      Since then, Lord Cenlys has been an incredibly popular Dark Lord for the Dark faction. Rivalries are between evil minions or members of the inner circle hoping to gain his favour, not to replace him as a Dark Lord. Everyone agrees that he's our last big chance of changing our society before the Light irreparably damages it.

    I love the use of your icons in this article. It helps to read it easily, and makes it easy to pick back up when a child comes in interrupting me.

    This is such a fun world and such a fun article, I love the narrative voice of this (frankly a bit creepy) suitor. It would be very interesting to see an article narrated by someone that found out the elaborate plan if you don't have one yet. Maybe the suitor somehow got a hold of someone else's journal? or a newspaper scrap with only partially fabricated scandal?   I have decided to feature the Dark Lord in my Reading Challenge this year if you want to give it a look!

    Thanks for the comment and the feature! Awww, I'm sure Aline isn't creepy at all :p   In world, Alina is not stupid enough to write any of her plans done or speak about them to anyone, exactly because of the risk of this information getting found. Though I don't think people on the Dark side would be very shock. After all, everyone agrees that the Dark Lord is amazing and super attractive XD They would all just find it super presumptuous of Alina to set her sight so high above her station.
