Temple of the Six, Regal District, Celestial City, Resmir
Heavy wings flap-landed outside the Temple of the Six. King Falkor was quick to dismount his sister's dragon; there was something tense in the air whenever he had to interact with Arkadios. He got the notion that the dragon just didn't like him.
The King shoved open the doors to the Temple and quickly found his seat next to the throne for the Queen of Resmir.
Roxanna, on the other hand, took her grand time. She cooed at her lovely Arkadios, stroking his head and giving him words of praise from the long night flight. The vampiress heaved a dead cow out of the saddle on his back and threw it onto the ground in front of him. The inanimate ungulate had been rotting the entire ride, though the chilly weather had done a nice job of slowing that process.
She leaped from the saddle and landed with natural elegance. "Just be back by nightfall, darling," she said with a baby voice, once again stroking the face of her blind companion. His white, unseeing eyes closed as an expression of dragon glee crossed his face. Arkadios caterwauled after finishing his cow in a single gulp and took to the skies after all of his passengers had dismounted.
As Countess Roxanna entered the mighty Temple, another dragon landed outside of it. This one was Eldingar, the loyal dragon to Count Sarkis Nightingale of Tenesidus. Sarkis was accompanied by his wife, Wynona. As he dismounted, a pale, glowing yellow light slowly encircled a new entity. Queen Ri'ravi Zahrasha teleported herself to the Temple with ease.
"Greetings, Count Sarkis and Countess Wynona," she said with a tone of slight irritation. It wasn't directed toward the Tenesidus leaders; it was just the consequence of her dislike for Council Meetings. Queen Ri'ravi nodded her respects to the couple before entering the Temple and taking her place beside the empty throne for the King of Hegatzi. Sarkis followed in her path.
The inside of the Temple was intricate with beautiful paintings and marble statues. Very few had arrived, leaving little room for small talk. The only ones who had arrived held feelings of tension between each other. Sarkis sighed, sitting in his throne around the circular table. The grandest throne, of course, was taken by the Emperor who was just making his way into the temple, followed by his Empress. She sat to his right, next to the thrones for the King and Queen of Resmir. Sarkis saw his nephew look past the two empty seats and glance at Remiel with shifty eyes.
To the left of the Emperor came the thrones for the King and Queen of Asteria, followed by the Hegatzan thrones. Filling the rest of the circle were the traditional thrones of the Counts and Countesses, labeled appropriately depending on which county they ruled. They were grouped by province.
