Hail and well met. I am the Painted Rose of the house Floralis a Gaudium. I have trained since childhood in the courtyard of the castle that mine own grandfather built with his own serfs. Strong with the axe, swift with the spear, and known as a singer of the sword song, I became known in the tourney lists as the Painted Rose for mine own mother's sigil that I carry upon mine own shield.
But war has come, and glory greater than the tourney could ever offer is ripe for the taking!
"Enemies of the realm, I am here to cleanse ye!"
Things weren't starting well for the Painted Rose, the skills he learned on the tourney ground were not proving to be of much use in a castle siege.
"None is so brave and proud as the Painted Rose!"
The knave Caitliff changed his coat to attack me beyond the battlements, as a member of mine own vanguard!
