Lumenorians

Here are some of the many virtuous souls from throughout the realm of Lumenorus who have pledged their allegiance to the King. They are the valiant ones who have sacrificed much for both Arcātheos and Captivenia. 

AMbassador Gawan

Origins: Lumenorian (human descent)Gawan
Born:
2nd age, 45th year
Skill Mastery:
Diplomacy
Chief Virtue:
Wisdom
Commision:
Ambassador of Arcātheos

Gawan was born in the city of Shanoth, south of the Great River, soon after the dawn of the second age. His parents were successful merchants who strengthened trade between Meridianas and Captivenia. Growing up, his family travelled regularly into Arcātheos, passing through the main gate into the protected realm. When he was sixteen, he was allowed to venture off to sit in attendance at the Royal Court of Arcātheos.

While in session, a rather complicated dispute between two neighboring settlements was being debated. The proceedings were interrupted when Gawan was signaled out of the crowd and asked to give his impression on the matter.  After its conclusion, he was affirmed for his wisdom, and his friends were invited by Lord Valerian into the King’s temple. From that day forward, and to his surprise, a member of the Royal Guard was assigned to protect him as he progressed through his studies, back in Meridianas Arbor. At the age of 23, he returned to Arcātheos, and has served as Ambassador ever since.

 

General Praefortis

Born: 2nd Age, 46th Year
Skill Mastery: Swordsmanship, Artillery, Strategy of War
Chief Virtue: Prudence
Commision: Legion Commander 

Descending from a distinguished line of military leaders, his grandfather died protecting Aurelius, as one of the first Praedorian Rangers in the Great War. After the subsequent death of his father, at the hands of the enemy, he made a silent vow to help rid Lumenorus of all evil.

His early career was an aggressive campaign of ruthless battles, driving the enemy day by day further into the East. The courage and valor he displayed during this time led to several promotions. However, it was his passion to take on evil by himself that became his downfall.

He was tricked into serving the very enemy he had sworn to hate, and viciously attacked a settlement he believed to be hostile. At this his darkest moment, when he realized several servants of the King lay mortally wounded through the imprudent will of his sword, the King’s mercy came to him through the healing hands of Lord Valerian. By a singular grace of the King, and after several weeks of a physician’s care, each of the wounded were snatched from the grips of death. Thus Praefortis’ conscience was spared from an even deeper guilt than the many he already bore. For a year he made penance by rebuilding the small village he had attacked in haste. He was a changed man, fully aware of his need to follow the will of the King in all matters, rather than his own. Fully reinstated into the King’s forces, he was in turn elevated to the rank of General. Under his leadership, reside the Royal Artillery, Tower Guards, and the Praedorian Rangers.

 

Commander Titus

heros and villains titusOrigins: Lumenorian (human descent) 
Born: 2nd Age, 53rd year
Skill Mastery: Close Combat, Swordsmanship
Chief Virtue: Justice 
Commission: Captain of the Praedorian Guard

Amos, as he was originally named, suffered greatly at the age of 14 when Dröch massacred his village in eastern Praedor. His father, a renowned and virtuous Ranger, was credited in saving the lives of everyone except himself and his wife. For 6 years Amos was held in captivity by the Droch, forced to fight and steal to survive as he slaved in the mines of Tenebror.  Failing to see the King’s hand in his escape, these dark years left their mark and he publicly rejected his faith. In a spiral of moral decay, he was sentenced to a prison in Meridianas Arbor after burning a tavern to the ground in a quarrel.

It was there that his path crossed with Gawan, the newly appointed Ambassador of Arcātheos. After spending time with Gawan, he was reminded of his father’s legacy and asked to know the great forgiveness and mercy the King grants. Seeing that his heart was sincere, Gawan made arrangements to bring him before ArchLord Legarius. Though he received pardon, Amos stood before the court unable to make restitution towards the family who had suffered financial ruin at his hand. Unbeknownst to him, the Ambassador had already made arrangements for the Praedorian Rangers to pay his debt in exchange for 12 years of military service.  Working up the ranks, he has vowed to honour his parent’s memory through his own journey in holiness.

He has continued to serve faithfully with the Praedorian Rangers long after his term had passed. In the year 151 of the 2nd age he was renamed Titus by ArchLord Valerian, the true meaning of which was disclosed only to himself.

 

Prince REInhart

Origins: Lumenorian (human descent)reinhart
Born: 2nd age, 67th year
Skill Mastery: Swordsmanship
Chief Virtue: Integrity
Commision: Prince of Meridianas

It was only recently discovered that Reinhart was a descendent of royal blood. This news came after a scroll attesting to his birth was presented to the royal court in Meridianas Arbor. It is undeniable now, that he is the nephew of Annalise, and therefore first cousin to Princess Leisuara of Captivenia.

He was humbled by this news, as his parents had been killed while he was a small child. They say he was found wandering the battlefields at the age of four in the year 71 of the second age, with no other survivors to speak for him. He was then raised by a noble family who enlisted him in the military. After an impressive succession of advancements, he was made Commander of the 1st Auxillary. This of course, was the well known and prestigious troops who followed Lord Gabron against Reth Maloch, in the Great War. Commander Reinhart first crossed the great river into Arcātheos in the 147th year of the second age.

Rejecting the comfort awaiting him in the marble halls of Meridianas, he travelled into the rugged north after hearing of the great devastation laid upon them by Reth Caedus.  Aftter the tragic death of Chieftain Thorhlem, he rallied the remaining Norselords and won the battle of Tarek in the year 151 of the 2nd age. At the request of Princess Geneve, he has remained there until this day helping to re-fortify the Kingdom of Caelor.
