After a long and arduous journey, the four sisters were united with the kings whose hearts they captured.
KAI of the north kingdom was a ruthless and iron-fisted ruler. Only two things could crack his callous exterior: his beloved canary whose warbling could instantly turn him into a big, doting marshmallow, and Qortni's temper which made him tremble worse than jelly in a railroad car. He enjoyed both. Together, Kai and Qortni made a formidable royal couple.
KAVAN of the east kingdom was a debonair gentleman, full of charm and grace. He made all the ladies in the kingdom swoon and bat their eyes. Unfortunately for them, he only had eyes for Quilla whom he showered with gifts and affection. One look from him, and she could feel her heart flutter like a thousand butterflies. Kavan and Quilla were completely and utterly in love.
KENDL of the south kingdom was a benevolent and generous king. Most of the time he was very jolly and cheerful -- except when Quiana beat him at games, which happened to be all the time. Everyone in the kingdom regarded Kendl and Quiana as the lucky couple.
KINAH of the west kingdom was enormously wealthy, with rooms filled with gold and gems and all sort of trophies. Whatever King Kinah desired, he got. So it frustrated him to no end that the only thing he could not get was Quarta's satisfaction and approval. She was always highly suspicious that whatever she did not have was actually better. Kinah and Quarta were constantly craving for more.

Arjun, Aden, Ashur & Aubin
The four sisters became more and more beautiful with each passing day. As word of their beauty spread, kings from neighboring lands came to court the fair young maidens. And so it happened that each sister became betrothed to a king before her eighteenth birthday. When they became of age, the nobleman sent his daughters to the four corners of the land to live in their new kingdoms. He selected four of his bravest horsemen to accompany and protect them on their long journeys.

It has been written that ‘War is the trade of kings.’ But we all know that behind every great king, there lies an even more powerful queen. This is the story of four sisters who were each destined for royalty. They were the beautiful daughters of a wealthy nobleman who lived in the Center Valley. They spent their days playing spirited rounds of mahjong and betting against each other in lively, trash-talk-laden games of marbles.
QORTNI had a temper that was quick to flare and difficult to extinguish. Had there been anger management courses in her village, she would have flunked every one. She had a glare that could stop a snarling hyena and send it whimpering away.
QUILLA was an incurable romantic and masterful daydreamer. She could often be found chasing frightened woodland creatures in the hopes of singing with them. To this day, that has not happened.
QIANA smiled and skipped wherever she went. Luck, it seemed, always seemed to follow her around like puppies eager to be noticed. This annoyed her sisters greatly.
QUARTA wanted to have it all. She liked to fill her pockets with baubles and gems, some of which were hers and some of which were not. She also had the habit of licking every bonbon in the box so no one else would eat them.
