Guardian Apprentice - Anime Short Story Series

Postby starwarsboy90 » Tue Mar 14, 2006 6:28 pm

Here's a new Idea for an Anime or Anime Short Story Series that Gabriel McKnight Productions will probably be working on in 2006/2007. If anyone would like to help with Production/Publishing, that would be most appreciative. The series will be a Romance/Comedy/Fantasy, and will focuse on themes such as Pure Christianization(Christian Ideals, beliefs and symbolism) and will focuse on other themes, such as redemption, salvation, spiritual battles, etc.


Guardian Apprentice Synopsis: Kal Duran isn’t your average teenager. He’s half-Human, half-Aldean(Elf) and one of the few survivors of the legendary sunken Kingdom of Corinthia. In his night life, he’s a super powered crime fighter. In the daytime, he’s a first year Tokyo University student(foreign exchange student). However, he has a secret life at the same time, he’s an Guardian Apprentice(Guardians are warrior Angels, a secret sect within the Angels, who are dedicated Paladins/Mediators and peacekeepers throughout the universes and serve the Most High God without question), who travels around the universes with his Master, fighting, Demons, Youkai and anything that is a force for evil. While at Tokyo U( he has to attend Tokyo U, so he can finish college, then get that out of the way so he can begin the next phase of his training), he’s given an assignment by his Master, to protect an Japanese noblewomen(who is also attending Tokyo U) who’s soul( a soul with a potent amount of un-creational energy which is intertwined with the soul) was sealed in her body, which is coveted by Satan himself. Can Kal protect this Lady from Satan, at the same time, have an almost normal life at Tokyo University and keep his true identity and powers a secret from everyone around him?

Possible Characters

Postby starwarsboy90 » Mon Mar 20, 2006 7:28 am

Here is a list of possible characters for the series, besides the main one, Kal Duran.


-Ari (pronounced Are-eye): An (Aldean) male fairie that travels with Kal and helps him on his quest. He can shapeshift, like most species and races on Aldea. In his human form, he has blue hair, and blue-white eyes, pale skin. At Tokyo University, he is Kal's roommate.

-Kaede-sama: An Japanese noblewomen who is an advent swordsmen and follows the religion of shinto. Her soul is coveted by Satan and his Demons, because it is full of leftover un-creational energy, if in the wrong hands, can spread disaster and chaos. She moves into the co-ed dorm, in the neighboring room by Kal's, which is unknowingly connected by a shared bathroom. Kaede is assigned that room, becuase she is the Dean's daughter, and the Dean knows what Kal is. Kal is given an assignment to protect her from Demons by his Master; and is assigned by the Dean to protect his daughter and the school from evil, talk about a tough break!

- :evil: Satan: Nothing needed to explain Him


- :angel: Gabriel Argadon(Aldean Chronicles): Kal's Master, the Wandering Ranger; a former Ancient Guardian, now Guardian(Still a Seraphim though). Pops in to check on his apprentice every once in a while, gives Kal side quests while Kal is in school and training.

-Professor Sou/ Sou-Sensei: A professor of Ancient History and Archeaology, Kal's mentor and friend.

- :evil: Sarah Y'vansia: Tokyo U's foreign exchange student from Transalvania, who is a Witch and is half-Vampire. She is secretly in love with Kal, however, out of school, she's his arch-nemesis; who is trying to get Kal to recognize her and her love for him, by any means necessary.


More characters to come!!

G.A. Characters Update - Nightmare

Postby starwarsboy90 » Tue Mar 21, 2006 5:39 pm

Nightmare(To the world of Demons and Angels, he is known as Demon-Eater, becuase he is very ruthless in killing Demons and anything relating to Satan and his Dark Army) - Gabriel's son by his First wife. He's half-Aldean, half-Shi'ado. He served Satan for a time, but grew to hate Satan and left Satan's side. He now travels the World, and hunts down Demons and anything connected to Lucifer. Reading Aldean Lore since he was a child, he grew up adoring Lord Vahloren and is now trying to travel the same path that Vahloren had, serving himself.

Humaniod / Demon Form Description: Almost shoulder length turquiose wavy hair. Dressed in black chain mail, black pants with a black warrior sash & boots, wears a black trench coat. He has green eyes and very pale skin(due to his Shi'ado lineage). Black feathery wings sprout out of his back when he is flying. When he is angry or in battle, he has red eyes/ cobolt blue eyes, sharp claws. He also has pointed ears.

Personality: Chaotic Evil, semi-neutral. He doesn't like Humans, is hateful towards anything remotely more evil than himself, cold heart like a Shi'ado, except warm towards his kin, barely(i.e. family members).

Publishing News 3/8/2008

Postby starwarsboy90 » Sat Mar 08, 2008 9:58 am

I'll try to keep this thread updated as much as possible. Anyways, the preface for Guardian Apprentice(Guardian Apprentice: Ancient Ties) is in it's final draft (I can't release it or post it yet due to I haven't gotten it copyrighted yet).
We have one artist working on this project(PM me if you are interested). We also have two co-authors working on this project as well. However, we do need a music composer for this project. As for the Manga release of Guardian Apprentice, it is still in pre-visualization.



Concerns;

Guardian Apprentice is radically different then Aldean Chronicles. It is less contraversial; it's main theme's are Redemption and Will( God is in control, but he did give us free will to choose to serve him or not and suffer. The protagonist; Kal has vowed not to kill anyone that isn't so evil that they don't have a chance to change( in other words, demons, undead; etc); due to what Gabriel had done when he killed Sai; sinking the Kingdoms of Aldea, Corinthia and the Island Empire of Draconia (Legends of Aldea)).


Differences Between Guardian Apprentice and Aldean Chronicles


Guardian Apprentice takes place in the Legends of Aldea universe; my first work into the inter-mingling series. Aldean Chronicles is an alternate reality; due to Lord Vahloren( after his defeat by Jai Knight and Eric Pole) traveled back in time to ancient Aldea and changed the timeline as he gathered power to become the most powerful warrior in the universes; Gabriel Argadon was sent back in time to ancient Aldea to stop him and help the Aldean rebel against their false gods; the Shiado. This series doesn't have an official ending; although it has an alternate ending in Volume 2.00001. Guardian Apprentice is situated in the timeline where Gabriel wasn't sent back in time and the contraversies of his actions never occured.

Crossovers;

In the second half of Aldean Chronicles; Kal does make a couple appearances in that universe while he is undergoing his training as a Guardian Apprentice(Due to his requirements of needing to have more then a dozen classes; he has to travel to other universes and learn different classes(Paladin, Ninja, Mage, etc)).

In the unreleased episodes of Aldean Chronicles(which will be released concurrent to the release of Guardian Apprentice); Princess Sakura Durnmal, Aiden Argadon and the twins travel to Kal's universe in order to help heal the seal that is protecting Sakura from her emerging Shi'ado soul. They encounter Kal who helps them enter the underwater Kingdom of Corinthia and battle Demon Eater.
