About this submission

This is a rough draft of an idea that has been bouncing in my head from quite some time, this is for a series that would be 10 chapters in total, it's Fantasy with a little Sci-fi and it's a bit like religious fantasy with some interesting characters that play with gender identity.
The world of the story is very complex since it's not like it takes place in our world but one very similar to it, some would say the 7 kingdoms idea is out of GOT and yeah there's a bit of that in the inspiration for this only this takes place in a futuristic world and the "medieval stuff" it's more like backstory that will mostly be shown in flashbacks.
I want to know what works and what doesn't and if it's a good start for a series, are the characters interesting and if not how could I improve on them.
This is still in the writing stages and brainstorming, I know where I want the story to go and in this episode, I set up a lot of the characters that will be important throughout the series.

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
My name is Dilia Oviedo, I'm a 33 year old Dominican Artist. I first got my start in the world of art as a child, I participated in many plays as an actress and also behind the scenes in school productions, did ballet and also took part in various art camps throughout my childhood. At the age of 9 I got my first photo camera and suddenly it was attached to my hand, I would document anything and everything that captured my attention. As a hobby I was also a movie lover, my first job at 15 was in a video rental store called "Home Videos", I used to sneak out of school every day to just go there and watch movies, I spent so much time there that they hired me, I loved being able to see movies and getting paid for it was an added bonus. As I got older I felt this huge need to find a creative outlet for some of the ideas that popped into my head, but being from Dominican Republic and not wealthy made it so that certain dreams seemed a bit out of reach, I kept taking pictures and I was known with my friends for my movie nights, as I worked a a rental store I also started collecting DVD's a collection that now holds 450 titles many of which got their start at Sundance. I studied languages and for a brief period lived in Brasil with my then diplomat father, I studied culinary arts and luck blessed me when I got the chance to go to Barcelona to study photography. In 2008 I made my way to Barcelona and there I finally got a chance to express myself through visual art, I created concepts for my shoots, little narratives behind the still frames and slowly I felt myself wanting more, needing more than just still frames. I've experimented with small videos, little moving narratives to go along with my still frames. After I came back to the Dominican Republic in 2012 I began teaching and also writing, this need to express myself further led me to take various online screenwriting courses, I also decided to pursue further academic knowledge in regards to film producing from the New York Film Academy in 2017. Currently, I am developing various screenwriting projects and working for a Dominican production company where I'm learning about the casting process and all the goes on behind the scenes to make a movie.
