What is Draconia?
Greetings and Salutations! I’m Tiberius Stormwind from Draconia. Its cities have stood for over 700 years and at the center: House Stormwind. My family has ruled for over eight generations. For house and home we face any evil that threatens our people. I, along with my kin Faeryn, Jerahd, and Drakkia, answer the call of our kingdom. For we are Draconian Knights!
The 1st son, was born with a curse upon his head, by that the color of his scale was to be red, the antithesis of his family’s colors. Mastering the arcane arts at an astounding rate as a child, he tried his hardest to prove to himself and his people that he did indeed earn the right to carry the Stormwind name. Upon studying in a closed off section deep within the Halls of Draconia oldest library he came across some articles that mentioned Powerful Legendary artifacts said to be lost forever.
Tiberius took this as a challenge and set off to find them and upon his adventures, he indeed did.He and his brother Jerahd found clues to the first artifact that led to him to a different plane of existence where he found his first artifact of power: the Mending Wheel.
When he returned to Draconia with proof, the city council granted him an ambassadorship and the respect he had been longing for. He quickly went back to the other plane to search for more. While there, on the way to his next destination, Tiberius received word from his father to return home at once. Not too soon after that a terrible darkness had fallen over the gods that had overseen the lands. Dragons started to attack, but Tiberius and Jerahd successfully cast a spell called planar shift, and got Tiberius to safety in their realm just in time.
The second son was born with the natural inclination to become a warrior. When he was 12 having fun near the coast off Draconia, he spotted and enjoyed a band of traveling musicians putting on a show for the public, and when their performance was over he asked why they do this from town to town for free. Faeryn learned that these musicians were actually a band of merry traveling Monks who called themselves the “The Order of Bahamut”.
They told Faeryn they would teach him The Way of the Hand if he dedicated time to them and his pilgrimage. He begged his folks to go. Penelope was not pleased with this proposal; however, his father Kruvanis Stormwind met with the monks and gained trust for them, enough to watch over their son.
Traveling to many parts of the world, performing with The Order, Faeryn returned home 10 years later a fully trained monk. He had a tamed Hippogriff he named Adlyn after finding out the name from the beast itself, and his “mind metal staff,” which is an iron staff that’s tipped with a liquid metal that is attuned to his mind so Faeryn can make then ends shape change. He shortly thereafter started to develop his own technique he called “Drunken Fist.“
He’s a no non-sense kind of fella, holds honor to the highest regard, and can play a mean oboe.
The youngest of the three brothers, Jerahd has always looked up to his big brother Tiberius with admiration. Trained in the ways of the Awakened Mind he is an extremely powerful Mystic. His abilities through out the last several years have grown exponentially, surpassing some of the elder Sages.
Over the last couple of years he has dabbled into Warlock practices upon finding Teachings from The Old One.
He charges himself with keeping watch over Tyryx: the Stormwinds hometown they reside in while his brothers were away. He takes great pride working under their father Kruvanis, serving him and the High Council. On the day of Tiberius returning he was more than happy to go out and start new adventures with his siblings if not for the experience, then to show his big brother that the has come into his own as well. He is always greeting a challenge with a smile and hearty Lightning Bolt, and when his eyes glow white, you better be sure you are not the cause of it, and if you are…run for your life, while you still can control your own mind and body to do so…
The youngest Stormwind sibling, Drakkia might just be the toughest nut out of them all. Starting her training as a most cunning Rogue, she did fancy the arcane arts, primarily those based in illusion magics. She first got the urge to learn when she realized she could enhance her assassin skills even further with it. She now studies with the elder Sages to master the craft, but Tiberius was the one who secretly taught her Mage Hand, and Light… so they could pull pranks on Jerahd and Faeryn when they were growing up. She may hide behind a wall of cynicism, she does have a soft spot for her brothers and a rather close relationship with their Mother, Penelope.
At 18 years of age, Drakkia won her fathers respect when she passed the “Rogues Right of Passage Trials” two years before she was supposed to by using a rather tricky Disguise Self spell and sneaking into the competition to then pass. Which alone was a feat in itself.
She is always battle ready, and at the same time loves naps. When she’s not pranking someone she is either helping out at home or training vigorously with 1st Company to keep her skills as sharp as her daggers.
Kruvanis Stormwind is easily the most powerful Dragonborn in Draconia, becoming the most utilized assassin in his early service to the King, He was the youngest to take the head seat of Parliament in history. He rarely sees the King, which means he’s doing his job right.
While on a visit to the Draconian main land, Kruvanis and his brother Cevill were stopped by a mysterious oracle, who warned him about his yet to be conceived children and their safety upon birth. Kruvanis angered and demanded he be told the whole truth. The oracle pointed to the west and told Kruvanis “find the one who will teach you the ways of the Circle of the Moon. Only with these abilities will you be able to save your unborn children, and that’s what Kruvanis did. Those words still stayed with Kruvanis up to the day Cevill fell in battle against a beholder, when all of the words made sense.
He is strong willed, yet his heart melts at the sight of his wife Penelope at every glance. She is his beacon of light through any darkness that may shroud is soul. Threaten his homeland, offspring, or lady, and you wont even notice a tiger has snuck up behind you and taken your throat.
Penelope Stormwind is the foundation of the Stormwind family. When Kruvanis has been managing a nation all day he is sure to come home or across the world for that matter post-haste when summoned by his one true love.
How do you tame a beast like Kruvanis Stormwind? Be a beast even he’s afraid of. Mastering the art Life to become a most powerful Blessed Healer, Penelope also took up a bit of Arcane arts training through her son Tiberius when he was in his teens. She is the keeper of the Seers Garden and its secrets, which only a few in the world are privy to.
She does worry about her children often but puts on a brave face to set an example for everyone else. She has only been in battle a few times, but those few times are battles of legend.
Penelope is unique in the sense that she draws her Divine Power directly through Bahamuts spirit instead of a chosen deity. By Bahamuts Blessing, indeed.
She’s a warm hearted, furnace of love, just do not threaten her family or she will incinerate you with an inferno of divine retribution.
Greetings and Salutations I’m Orion Acaba… from Draconia… or Los Angeles, CA rather.

Proud Alumnus of The Upright Citizens Brigade,
Friend to man, animal and machine, turned Voice-bending pro.
I’ve been slinging voices such as Tiberius Stormwind, Nine from Final Fantasy: Type-0, Crazy Dave from Plants Vs. Zombies 2 and Garden Warfare, Apollo Justice from The Ace Attorney Series, Ivar in the Tales of Xillia games, Scab in Mad Max, and a ton of Anime like Sir Walsh in Hellsing, Hoheto Hyuga in Naruto, A bunch of dudes that Guts kills in Berserk and making appearances on Kill La Kill, and Jo Jo’s Bizarre Adventures, on-camera I also play Deadpool on “Super Power Beat down” and having a blast doing so= bang bang bang!!
I enjoy long walks on the beach, comic books, Sci-fi, playing video games till I pass out on the couch, and snacks.
Draconian Knights means a great deal to me, as a performer it’s rare to have something to create in the entire world where your favorite character you’ve ever played gets to roam free and untethered.
Creating this project, discovering new characters, essentially having to learn most classes and their abilities has been fun, challenging and surreal. What started as a button to the end of a story became a new a journey into the great unknown. I have no one else to thank other than the thousands of you amazing fans who think my ideas are worth a damn at all. I’m elated that I get the opportunity to bring Tiberius Stormwind back into everybody’s world, including mine.
Thank you all for coming along this new adventure! Huzzah!!
