Lara Kal El, Queen of Krypton


Let me share a tale with you, to the reader of this parchment. As I write this to you, quill in hand and burning hearth to my side, I hope this message reaches you and teaches you many lessons. Everyone in the Land of Kalanos knows of the great and powerful kingdom of Krypton; its people free from torment, slavery, and oppression. The food was abundant and trades galore. Medicine was advanced and sickness rarely set its destructive glare on the people of Krypton. For many years, the kingdom stood united. A formidable force to be reckoned with, Krypton's army was great in size and power. The sheer ferocity and sense of honor and justice made Krypton's might the strongest in the entire land of Kalanos. The eight kingdoms of this land both feared Krypton's might and reveled in its advancement, for many foreign cultures were forever changed by Krypton's influence. The kingdom stood strong and proud, despite many bloody wars, for 30 long years.

Its ruler, Kal El, King of Krypton, was noble and fair; just and honorable. Standing by a code of honor set forth by his father Jor El, he ruled with might and honor, justice and compassion. Many a folk song has been written in his name from his deeds. Tale be told, one day, he even slayed a massive dragon that terrorized the kingdoms of Kalanos. People were quick to kneel and honor him without question. He led the kingdom to prosperity and freedom.

One day, after Kal El's first born child Lara reached the age of 6, A foreign queen named Jayna Lor Vak laid siege to the kingdoms of Kalanos for many years. Outraged by her lack of compassion and honor, Kal El sent his troops to the battlefield to quell the rage of the Kindom of Tenaria in hopes that he could reach the evil queen and negotiate peace with her. The Great War of Kalanos lasted for 14 long years. Blood stained the soil of the battlefield a dark crimson as millions of soldiers from both armies fell in battle. Never had a force so powerful matched Krypton's might but their honor and convictions kept their morale from waning. One day, Kal El and a massive gathering of his greatest warriors, successfully beat back their enemies and laid siege to the Keep of Lor Vak, entering the throne room, just to be met by a force that cannot be measured.

The reason the opposing army was so powerful was because of an enchanted amulet worn around the neck by Jayna Lor Vak. Outraged at her failed army, she called forth a dark and malevolent being. The soldiers fought the being but lost greatly. As the gathering of Krypton's finest warriors were cut down easily one by one, the dark one set his sights to Kal El. He fought valiantly in a battle that lasted many hours but in the end, he met his fate, falling in battle.

The entire land of Kalanos mourned for the fallen King as word reached his now 20 year old daughter. Rule of the Kingdom fell to her mother, Aurora Van Ral, Queen of Krypton. As Queen Aurora fought back the revived and advancing army of Tenaria and their new weapon, The Dark Lord, Lara trained hard for 6 long years, eventually leading the entire Queen's Guard; A new and powerful knights platoon. She excelled in martial combat as well as many forms of weapons; bows, swords and axes. Soldiers began to fear the Warrior Princess and even wrote legends about her adventures through the land of Kalanos.

One Night, while Princess Lara Kal El slumbered, after a recent victory on the battlefield, the battlefield camp's defenses were overcome by a massive wave of revived knights of Tenaria. As soldiers of the Queen's Guard faced them, easily decimating them, a wave of dark assassins were injected into the camp through the battle. As the soldiers fought the assassins, they were easily cut down. The Queen's Guard responded as Aurora exited her tent, clad in armor fashioned after her late husband's, but were no match as The Dark Lord himself entered the battle camp.

Lara rises and dons her armor and weapons as fast as she could but the speed at which the army fell was too fast for her to reach the battlefield in time. She exited the tent as she watched the entire army of Krypton being destroyed. Ten by ten, the Queen's Guard was quickly vanquished by the magic of The Dark Lord. The Dark Lord set his sights on the noble Queen as she began to lose hope, seeing her people destroyed so fast. Just then, the Warrior Princess, Lara, exited her tent, shocked by the destruction as a solitary tear rolls down her cheek. She grips her sword tight and arms her sheild. She screams a warcry as she sprints to the Dark Lord, with fire in her heart. She swings at him as the sword moves through his body as if he was made of smoke. She continues her striking as the Dark Lord laughs an evil blood curdling laugh. She kicks at him to no avail. With one final strike with her broadsword, the Dark One disappears. Shocked and convinced her attacks did nothing, she hears a blood curdling scream from behind her. HER MOTHER!!

Turning around abruptly, she watches as her mother was quickly beheaded in front of her eyes. Before the Queen's head was separated from her shoulders, she muttered the words “I Love You”. Lara falls to her knees, morale sapped from her in an instant, as she drops her heavy shield and blackened broadsword. The Dark Lord walks to her as she kneels in defeat. Her people, all slain before her and there was nothing she could do to stop it. Oh how her people have suffered. Facing the entity of death itself, a blank and defeated look forms on her face. She gazed upon the Dark Lord, standing before her, with flaming sword in hand, ready to end Lara's life. He grips his sword with two hands and swings hard as Lara closes her eyes and accepts death. Just then, the Dark Lord stops his swing, at the base of Lara's neck.

She opens her eyes to Jayna Lor Vak, standing before Lara, looking down on her, her amulet around her neck glowing a dark purple aura. As sweat drips down Lara's forehead and onto her armor, she kneels there, powerless to defend herself. Jayna laughs as she steps to the side, obviously commanding the Dark Lord. He waves his hands in a circle as a rip in the fabric of reality tears open with force, like the ripping of thin cloth. The opening begins sucking Lara inside, as Jayna and the Dark Lord remain motionless.

Thinking quickly, she impales her sword deeply into the ground and holds on to it with all her might. As her shield gets sucked into the opening, she tries hard to keep her grip, as it slowly fades. Jayna approaches the helpless princess as she clings to her sword for dear life. Squatting down, she whispers into Lara's ear over the roar of the rift,

“Revel in the fact that I have beaten you, princess.”

Just then, the sword slips from the ground as Lara begins getting sucked into the rift. Thinking quickly, she grabs the amulet from Jayna's neck as it snaps from the force. Lara is swiftly sucked into the rift as it closes behind her. The last thing Lara sees is the dead body of her mother, her head next to her body. Darkness enveloped her senses as she flies through the dark portal.

Re: Lara Kal El, Queen of Krypton


I've got to be honest, this is my favorite origin story for an alt-Kryptonian to date.

Thank you for sharing, and hope to see you around.
