The Minister Lord Caudecus Beetlestone adopted Liv short after the death of his wife. Liv was a little child back then, but Caudecus raised her together with Demmi, like she was his daughter as well. When she was younger, Liv used to play with Demmi and the two were friends, but she soon discovered that she has magic powers and from then Lord Caudecus preferred Liv over this own daughter.
He helped her to develop her abilities and introduced her to his shady dealings and membership of the White Mantle. He even gave her a staff, which is infused with a mighty bloodstone that increases her powers enormously. She also started to dress in the typical white-gold-red colours of the White Mantle. Demmi noticed the changes of Liv's personality and apperance and she realised, that Liv is no longer the same as before. She also tried to find out, which business she and her father had in common. When she found some hints of what they were doing, she begged the Order of Whispers for help. Demmi and Liv have barely spoken since then and Liv started to treat her cold-hearted and with distrust.
Dispite of this Liv likes to take walks outside of the manor and pretends to the outer world, that she is still a fine Lady of the Shire of Beetletun, who likes to go on parties and has conversations with important persons. And until now, no one has found out about her intrigues with the White Mantle.

Hiho Guys!
This is the new look of my Tempest Liv.
I've always been a fan of the Acolyte Coat and i've tried serveral times to combine it with other pants and skirts, but it never worked out well. The happier i am now, that it fits so well to the Aristocrat's Pants, which i've already used on my Tempest. I really like the Illustrious Footwear, since they are looking a bit bulky and i like the details on them (and they also cover up most of the check pattern of the pants >.>).
I wasn't 100% sure when it comes to the Sorcerer's Epaulets, because i also thought about using the Researcher's Epaulets. But i like to imagine that the gems on the shoulders, as well as the ones on the gloves, are little bloodstones.
The weapons that i'm using are all White Mantle weapons and ofc the Matthias Staff. I've dropped plenty of them during the raids and finally i've found a fitting outfit, on which i'm going to use them :) .

So i hope you like her :)

(also big sorry for the poor quality of the screens...)

I really like the mix of this particular top piece and legs, it makes this royal theme a little more original!
The dyes fit perfectly with the staff and totally evoke a White Mantle vibe for me
The overall idea and story behind your look is great and the presentation doesn´t leave anything to wish for ^^
Only thing that bugs me a little bit are the gloves as they reveal that straight cut off edge of the top, so personally I´d switch them, but that is nothing that distracts from the overall great upload!

I'm torn between a gold and a silver vote on this look. I like the combination of armor pieces. It really has a noble and elegnat flair. The colors are very fitting for the white mantle theme but imo the arrangement of the dyes of chest and leggins is not optimal for the look. It's hard to explain, but it just looks a bit odd to me. (it probably can't be helped anyway because the armor pieces lack dye slots.)
Since your screens and description are really awesome (love the story) I'll still give you a gold :)

Very nice style!
You did a great job with the white mantle theme here!
The armor-comb and colours come together to an amazing outfit.
I really get some sort of apprentice vibe from her, especially for some high ranked white mantle like Caudecus!
The presentation you provided is absolute top quality! Amazing story and beautiful thematic screenshots, thats how its supposed to be done!
Easy Gold here :D

Thanks a lot Elessar :)
i see your point when it comes to the gloves. I've tried some other skins, where the hands aren't covered in cloth, but most of them didn't fit imo
I also thought about the phoenix golves but idk if they woult fit u.u ->

I think i can understand what you're trying to say o.ô but especially on the chest the possibilities are pretty limited, because of the 3 dye slots ^^ i would like to have a 4th one to highlight the details on the chest a bit more.
but anyways, thanks for the gold and i'm glad, that you like the story :) (my 1st real attempt of writing one u.u)

Omg so many compliments :D
i'm really happy that you like it Hylek, and a huge thanks ofc :)
I'm glad that you like the story. I tried to play a bit with the lore of Caudecus, since the Shire of Beetlestone and the manor are some of my favorite places in Tyria ^o^

she looks nice :) the monocle is really cool here :P
i really like the armor combo. while top and pants look rather simple you revamped the look by choosing more detailed and flashy shoulders, gloves and boots.
i wish there would be one more dye channel for the top so that you could incorporate some golden details into the red area. but sadly there isn't :P
nonetheless this looks really nice! gold ^-^
