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.

Gary "Sir Galakadd" Dermen (Competitor)

A youth from the slums in the backwater kingdom of Hoppentoppen, the young Gary once found a book on the glorious conquests of the kings knights. He couldn't read of course, being an uneducated peasant, but the pictures were pretty inspiring. From that day forth he aspired to rise from his lowly birth to the ranks of the royal knights.

In the days since, Gary has since managed to cobble together his own makeshift armor from the miscellanious pieces of inedible garbarge salvaged from the junk piles that litter the streets. His sword is a jagged reject stolen from a blacksmith's wastepile, and his shield bears a crest with a rat design.

He has no formal training in arms and his combat ability would be regarded by actual knights as sloppy and uncouth. His only notable ability is a strange affinity he seems to share with rats. When outmatched and outclassed (practically always)he has been known to summon a small horde of them with a gutteral battlecry. It's pretty disgusting really.

Galakadd's grasp on what's going on at the tournement is rather sketchy and he doesn't really understand what chess is. His goal to champion the unwashed masses and attain the rank of knight are evident in his comaradarie with others of his own standing and his UTTER CONTEMPT for those higher up the social ladder.

Favourite piece: Knight/Pawn
