Game Mode: Universe Population

The United International Chess Tournament XVII is just over the horizon! This is a fierce and world-renowned competition, drawing in (Chess) fighters from all across the world! Who will claim this year's title of GRAND CHESSMASTER EXTREME!?

Fantasy world, not Earth. You can make up countries and cultures if you want! It can also contain like America because why the hell not.

-Make sure to specify whether the character is a competitor or not! They don't have to be!

-If they are a competitor, try to briefly explain their playing style. Do they have any odd quirks in their game? Do they use rooks and ONLY rooks? Are they just BATSHIT INSANE? Tell us!

-Chess is being used as a premise, not a motif. Every character does not have to be Chess-based! Actually most of them probably shouldn't be.

-Just to be clear, yes, this is parodying fighting games.

The Contessa (Competitor)

The Contessa hails from Vaingloria, a land where modern society has deteriorated and entire metropolises are abandoned and left in ruins. The people of Vaingloria vanished without a trace, leaving only a select handful of citizens to wonder where they went. The Contessa came to the tournament to win the substantial prize money ($$800,000,000) and rebuild her lost kingdom in hopes to restore it to its former glory.

The Contessa does not have any supernatural abilities, but she takes other's abilities in stride. She is not easily startled even by the more fantastical competitors. She is always accompanied by her faithful servant Samson who she treats with the most utter respect as she does with all of her Vainglorian subjects.

As for everyone ELSE, the Contessa constantly taunts them theatrically.

The Contessa is an attractive, middle-aged woman with long, blonde hair. She wears traditional Vainglorian clothes of the monarchy (up to you, artist, but make them luxurious) and wields a silver scepter.
