~Welcome, Kara of The Knights of Galaria~

Thank you, Kara for taking a few moments of your time for us….


My Graduation


It’s a hot day on the plaza, definitely warmer than expected, and these uniforms certainly are doing nothing to aid the situation. But impending heatstroke aside, it is hard to be at this ceremony and not reflect on the last seven years I’ve spent at this institution. Why, this place has been my home since the day my parents dropped me off at the academy, shortly after my eleventh birthday.


Why aren’t they here? Royal duties or not, they should be here to see the culmination of all my hard work, to see me ascend into the Knight Corp.



Well, that’s a laugh. I still haven’t told my father King Wilhelm that I plan to serve in the Corp professionally. Until now, military service had just been tradition for the royal household up to the end of the academic level. Father will surely throw a fit when I tell him. I’m sure he’s probably already handpicked a prince for me to marry; my days attending royal functions, my evening’s banquets and balls.


I scoff at the very notion. I have yet to meet the prince who believes he can tame me, the majority around Galaria already know better by now. They’re not even on my radar. Not like him.



Kaz looks dashing, walking up the steps to the stage in his brand new uniform. The role of valedictorian suits him, he deserves it, he’s worked very hard. Poor thing, he looks so nervous. I should flash him a smile to let him know it’ll be fine. Once the Supreme Commander’s speech is finished, then it should be Xul Xandu’s, then Kaz’s should be right after. I do hope his nerves don’t get the better of him.


In any event I want to get past this ceremony to get to the gala. I’ve had my brand new red dress flown in from Zanru and can’t wait to wear it. Yes, today is shaping up to be a wonderful day…


Again,Thank you Kara for stopping by today!






For Kaz Silverwynd, graduation from the Galarian Knight Academy begins normally, but an the attempt on the life of Xul Xandu, the newly-appointed head of the Confederation of Nations, pushes Kaz and his team into an epic and dangerous adventure. The action ranges from the floating city of Civitas to the underwater empire of Aequoria to the moon colony of Ourea. Kaz leads his band of knights on a perilous journey to stop a madman from achieving his ultimate goal – the conquest of the world of Galaria. Added to the already volatile mix are the legendary Crystals of Power, a collection of beautiful but deadly jewels that could tip the scales of power toward good or evil.
