When the protagonist of Skeleton Knight in One other World, Arc, first arrives within the new world, he finds himself within the Kingdom of Rhoden. This is able to serve to be very vital unbeknownst to him as lots of his actions would not directly function the impetus for key moments in its historical past.
To present geographical context, Rhoden is within the south-central a part of the continent with direct sea entry to their south. To their east is the Nice Canada Forest, which is the nation of and residential for the Elves. In between these two big nations is a tiny but essential nation known as the Grand Duchy of Limbult. Each the Rhoden Kingdom and the Nice Canada Forest would function essential locations in Arc’s journey and can compose nearly all of the reason.
To the north of Rhoden, is the Holy East Revlon Empire — an exceptionally massive empire rivaled in measurement solely by the Nice West Revlon Empire which shares its border. Not a lot has been revealed with regard to the historical past and tradition of the Revlon Empires, however it may be logically deduced that the 2 have been a single empire up to now earlier than civil battle break up them asunder.
To the west of Rhoden is a big lake separating it from the Nohzan Kingdom. Nohzan borders three different kingdoms of comparable measurement, the Salma kingdom to its west, the Delfrent Kingdom to its north, and the Holy Hilk Kingdom to its north-west. Lastly, there’s the Asbania Kingdom to the west of the Nice West Revlon Empire. These kingdoms are of little significance in the meanwhile, however they’re prone to play a bigger function going ahead within the collection as Arc travels the world; so it’s protected to tuck them into the again of 1’s thoughts.
The Rhoden Kingdom is a pre-industrial monarchy with three youngsters vying for the throne of succession — first prince Sekt Rhoden Sahdiay, second prince Dakares Rhoden Vetran, and Second Princess Yuriana Rhoden Olav. The eldest daughter Seriana just isn’t involved over political energy, quite her pursuits lie in defending her youthful sister Yuriana and her husband Duke Ticient in Limbult. First prince Sekt composes himself gracefully and elegantly, nevertheless, he’s revealed to be ruthlessly insatiable. Second Prince Dakares is just like his older half-brother in some ways with out possessing Sekt’s composure. Dakares is thought for scandals pertaining to Elven slavery. Moreover, Yuriana, in the meantime, is the voice of motive within the Rhoden Kingdom and exhibits the best deal of psychological maturity and compassion regardless of being the youngest member of the royal household.
Whereas Dakares has the help of the Holy East Revlon Empire in his bid for succession, Sekt has assistance from the Nice West Revlon Empire. The succession disaster is complicated due to King Olav’s rabbit-like habits. Dakares was born second, but he was the firstborn of Olav’s first spouse; giving him declare to the throne. Except Olav engaged in polygamy, or later married his mistress, it’s unknown precisely how Dakares was born second but to the king’s first spouse, however life finds a method.
Below Dakares’ make use of was a marquis answerable for the town of Diento named Tryton du Diento. He was a merciless man recognized by his goofy mustache that appeared an identical to his eyebrows. He ran the Elven slave commerce in Diento and deliberate to make use of the earnings to finance Dakares’ coup. Fortunately, Arc and Ariane have been in a position to free the Elven ladies he was holding hostage, and the elves proceeded to enact their revenge till he succumbed to the injuries. Arc would steal all the cash within the coffers of Diento’s property; making out with a veritable fortune in gold bars and leaving Dakares’ enterprise in shambles.
Within the capital metropolis of Olav, the king of Rhoden would meet together with his heirs to debate the scandal and easy methods to mitigate injury to overseas affairs. The rumor that elves freed the Elven slaves in Diento mixed with the rumor that Diento was promoting Elven slaves to the Holy East Revlon Empire makes the dominion of Rhoden culpable. For this reason the small nation of Limbult is so essential.
Limbult is the one area that has commerce relations with the Nice Canada Forest. If a human nation requires one thing from the Nice Canada Forest, their finest wager is to make use of Limbult as a mediator and center man. Contemplating that Elves have exceptionally lengthy lives, having such a scandal stay of their recollections for a whole bunch of years is detrimental to all overseas relations. Subsequently, if the Nice Canada Forest determined to chop off financial ties with Limbult and Rhoden over this scandal, it could put Rhoden into an excessive amount of hassle with the extremely influential Holy East Revlon Empire that sits on Rhoden’s and Canada’s northern border. Have been Canada to withhold magical gear and runestones wanted for crop cultivation, Rhoden would nearly definitively face internal-uprising and exterior invasion.
This delicate alliance hinges on the ties between Rhoden, Limbult, and the Nice Canada Forest; thus King Karlon Olav would dispatch his second daughter Yuriana on a mission to safe diplomatic relations between the three nations through the finish of episode 5. It was on this diplomatic mission that Yuriana would meet her non permanent and premature demise. Unbeknownst to Yuriana, Dakares had employed a gaggle of bandits to kill Yuriana to stop her from speaking with the Elven folks.
This killing was prone to each guarantee his succession by eliminating a possible rival and as a method for him to stop additional diplomatic talks with the Nice Canada Forest. The execution would show to solely be a partial success as Yuriana was actually killed, however later revived due to Arc’s high-tier regeneration magic. After the failed assassination try, Dakares would discover himself stabbed within the again by his confidant Cetrion who’s revealed to be working for first prince Sekt. Dakares’ demise and Yuriana’s obvious assassination would set the stage for Sekt’s undisputed rise to energy.
