Beauty and the Beast
Elim Garak - The Beast
Illegitimate son of the Cardassian King. (A fantastical race of being that lives in the southern part of this world) Elim was brought up as the King’s son. (since the King had not produce any other heirs) His real mother was presented to him as a simple servant. She was not allowed to see him unless her duties called for it. To Elim the Queen was his mother not matter how cruel she treated him.
As Elim grew he was taught to be his father’s right hand man, brutal and uncaring just like he; capable of getting even the closest kept secrets from the King’s enemies.
(The Queen, who hated Elim but hated his real mother even more, had him persecute the servant woman on the claim that she had stolen something of value to the Queen. Seeing her only son act as if he possessed no heart the servant woman confessed to a crime she did not commit and was thrown in jail. A punishment the Queen saw fit.)
One day Elim was charged with getting a certain confession from an old woman. He tortured and tormented her, promising that by the end of the day he’d break her. She pleaded with him, asked him if he had a heart. Surely he would know she could not betray her son. However, he would not yield. He had to prove himself to his father and her confession would help his father greatly. As she feel broken to the floor her last words to him was to be his curse. (She just happened to be a sorceress) He would be a beast on the outside as he was on the inside. A hideous creature that would strike fear in the hearts of whoever had the misfortune to look at him. He would intimidate even the bravest of men just as he wanted. As the woman lay dying her body withered away leaving only a red rose.
Consequently, this came with a catch. His father could not look at him nor was he able to stay in the palace. He was forced into hiding; an outcast in exile.
The only way for the curse to be lifted was if he learned to love someone just as the old woman had loved her son.
Julian Bashir - The Beauty
Julian is gorgeous but very awkward. Most people don’t know him very well and kind of treat him like he’s a fool. (He’s too pretty to know what he’s talking about) They would be wrong. When home he is studying to be an apothecary and tends to read on his spare time. (But no one in his village knows this… mostly because they don’t give him the time of day. He’s just an adorable puppy that wants attention)
One day his father has to leave to go to the next village over and asks Julian if he can get him anything. (He’s not the best father in the world and so he wants to get Jules something - anything) Julian tells him about a flower that when grown in a certain area (his father will pass this area on his way into town) a chemical from the soil will affect the pollen, which he needs.
On the father’s return he stumbles upon the Beast’s castle. Not being able to help himself, Richard goes inside. The castle it seemed, was expecting him. Dinner was served and by the end a bed was provided to him by servants who seemed to be the walls themselves. In the morning, the father left the castle wondering where he’d find Jules’ flower… He had not noticed in the dark, however in the early morning Richard spotted a rose bush tucked away in the courtyard garden. He hurried over. The flower was a match to the one Julian had shown him in the book. Upon picking one of the blooms a shadow descended over him and he was snatched up, “How dare you steal from me! I opened up my castle to you and this is how you repaid me?!”
Seeing that her husband hadn’t come home for the past week, Julian’s mother employed him to search for his father.
