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.
Marrakesh was once a traveling minstrel who went from planet to planet enjoying a life of playing music and FAST PARTIES. (Fast parties are like normal parties but they are done while in the middle of starship races.)
He has a fast and loose personality, and enjoys being spur of the moment. He's impatient, and likes to rely on improvisation most of the time. He also is easily jealous of other people's things and can be very materialistic.
One day Marrakesh met a gypsy woman and tried to pay for her gypsy wares via song. This so annoyed her that she put a curse on him!
Marrakesh's spirit is forever trapped in the body of a knight chess piece, and is currently being used in the middle of the tournament. This is really annoying! Also this is not because of the curse (his curse was that anyone he loved would die). It's just that after he died he accidentally locked his spirit in a chesspiece.
He enjoyed music, fast partying, freedom, and not being locked inside chesspieces. Now that he is a chesspiece he likes chatting up the other pieces in order to maintain his sanity and slowly influencing the movements of the piece he is trapped in to cause mischief.
He looks like a knight chess piece! Duh! But beforehand he was a member of a scorpion-looking race and wore a colorful polka-dotted suit and was never seen without his trademark cap and angelbox (an instrument that utilizes the screams of angels to make beautiful music). His spirit looks like this but is a ghost.
Favorite Piece: NOT THE KNIGHT.
