Rioux is the lover of Cypio, who was partially responsible for convincing him to abdicate for his safety.

 

History

Rioux's family grew up in the poor wastes of Whiteridge, the northern part of Alsryn governed by Duke Alcetryx Thorne. With two younger sisters (Risa & Wren), and a disabled mother with half her sanity gone, Rioux became an indentured servant to the Mirrorwind family at a very young age, and moved to the capital.

He began working as a stable boy, always putting everything into his work. His talents and work effort were taken notice of, and as a reward he was allowed to take some lessons with the Mirrorwind children as Queen Verrina felt badly for the young boy and took a liking to him. The Queen would have a hand in convincing the King to send Rioux's family a bit extra money to Whiteridge, although it made little difference.

Close in age to Prince Cypio, the boys became fast friends and eventually that turned into something more. The two shared their first kiss hiding in the barn loft, as Cypio shirked one of his family commitments. As much as he loved Cypio, he always resented how the prince could take his family comforts and responsibilities for granted, which was a common point of contention in their relationship.

Rioux tried desperately to get his family moved to the capital, where living conditions were warmed and would be more well suited for his ailing mother and youngest sister. 

Right before Cypio's marriage word came of his mother's death. This made him more determined than ever to get his sisters out of Whiteridge, as ten year old Wren was said to be fading fast lacking proper nutrition and suffering from an illness that she had carried since childhood.

 

The Wedding

The night of Cypio's wedding to his betrothed, Cypio sought Rioux out, abandoning his own wedding night. They were caught by his new wife, who strangely agreed to keep their secret. 

Shortly after, when Rioux returned to the stables to clean up for the night - he was cornered by Lord Alcetryx Thorne, who informed him that he knew everything, and that his sisters were currently being taken in a cart by Alcetryx's right hand man, Stryder Erys. If Rioux could not get Cypio to agree to abdicate the line of succession, then he would be killed. If Rioux spoke about the threat or blackmail to anyone, then his sisters would be killed. 

Rioux successfully talked Cypio into abdicating and running away together, although the relationship between the two was a bit rocky at the time. He had recently found out that Cypio had been draining small amounts of money from the royal accounts at a time - so small to not be noticeable - to save up to purchase a house in the capital for Rioux's family to move into. Rioux was ashamed by this, unwilling to be a charity case. Still, he loves Cypio dearly, and the pair has not been seen again following the abdication.
