in the small village of Thomas Rivers, the tiny tot named Jared
Blando came screaming into this world, the son of the lordly
John Blando, his sire. After a short time, he and his sister
Briana (the lion-hearted first born) sailed far across the
sea into distant lands called Germania. Calling this foreign
place his home for a time, his mother watched vigilantly over
her child, the only heir to the Blando family line, anxiously
waiting for news of his father who fought valiantly in distant
battles with the heathen foe.
Jared, who grew rather quickly for
a child, was of the inquisitive type and quickly learned
to wander off, much to the discretion of his mother. All
waited for four long years for father to come home from the
wars, as he was missed dearly. Suddenly to their relief,
he finally arrived home safely, indeed, as a hero, having
proven himself time and time again in the heat of battle.
Seeing it fit to retire, the Blando family sailed the great
Atlantic sea yet again, and arrived in the small hamlet of
that old place, the boy grew into a young man, and his
sword arm soon ached and tired, as weapons training
was taught from an early age. After years of strenuous
the young man grew from Page into Squire, and when the
time was deemed right, he was sent off to the University
Arts in Philadelphia. Saying goodbye to his parents, he
set off on his great journey.
Yet another four years have passed,
with many a great deed done, and many a great friend lost
in bitter combat. Through these trying times, the young man
who was once called a Squire, has been hardened and strengthened.
He has been tempered in the fire of the world like a fine
blade. Loved and lost, the young man has earned the right
to bear the arms of a true knight. What he decides to do
from this point onward is his own choice; his own destiny.
Let his shield always protect him, his lance be keen and
true, and his heart free from taint.
Now, the true adventure
has finally been embarked upon, and this knight's tale has
only just begun...
