Name: Marcus Antony
Home & Early life:
Marcus Antony is the firstborn son of Baron Lucius and Baroness Julia Antony. Marcus lives in and defends his birthplace, Thorondor, a stronghold named after a Fearless Eagle King who defeated the most dangerous Dragons in the Early Wars, many years ago.
Thorondor is located in County of Lindinheim, under the the Duchy of Drakeolm, ruled by Archduke Fengo Darkholm. The Duchy of Drakeolm is located inside the Kingdom of Blackheart, ruled by her Highness, Queen Rowena Darkholm .
Baron Lucius and Marcus were very loyal to their
Count Heimdall Vindhlér
and fought many battles beside them.
Training & Advancement:
Marcus began training with sword and shield at the tender age of six in order to prepare for battle alongside his father.
Throughout his studies he made many friends and established himself a worthy opponent, earning much respect among the men he would one day command.
At nineteen, Marcus was named as his father’s 1st Knight and Champion of the Land. At twenty-one, he became Baron Marcus Antony of Thorondor.
After a great battle fighting alongside of Count Heimdall Vindhlér, Marcus brought his father Baron Lucius home to Thorondor to spend his final days.
A grand, six-day feast was given to honor the life of Lucius Antony. As Marcus celebrated the life and death of his heroic father, he vowed to one day tell his son the great deeds of his grandfather, as Lucius had shared stories of his father Castus Antony, many years before.
These tales included the many victories and adventures with the Legendary Knight’s that called themselves, “The 13th Order”. These thirteen Knights followed the old code to protect the Realm until the passing of Castus which took the heart from the close group of warriors and friends.
And here is where Marcus Antony’s story really begins.…..
Thorondor will be primarily focused on the productions of weapons, armor, and farming to keep all the Knights, Man at arms, and all other fighting men/women well equipped and food in their bellies. There will be many other duties as well such as hunting, mining, shopkeepers, jewel crafting, cooks, town watch, and everything else that is needed to take care of the Land.
This will be a Stronghold that will need to be well defended by its people as well as protect the borders of the entire realm. Our focus will not only be to craft the weapons but be at the ready if we are called on to fight in battle. Whether it is a small bandit force that needs to be taken out or a massive battle against another realm, the land of Thorondor will be ready to fight!
Since this is still in the early stages this will be decided closer to the time that I know more about the economic status of the Kingdom.
