Fenros Claude Allaway 'The Undaunted'
Human, Bodyguard to the Princess
Fenros is not a large man compared to some other knights, he is still as muscular as any formidable fighter. He stands at a modest 5'8" with dirty blonde hair and light blue eyes. He bares scars all over his body from years of combat for the kingdom and pushing himself beyond his limit which helped him ascend the ranks as fast as he did. He was never one to wear fancy robes of exquisite material, preferring to wear more practical clothing. When not in normal attire, his armor (below) is what he can be found in. He found not having a full suit of armor better suited his fighting style.
This hand and a half sword (commonly known as a Bastard sword) was gifted to his grandfather from the king of his day when he was knighted and given the title of Lord. Passed down to him when he became a Knight. While he is trained to use this and a shield, he prefers to use to use just the sword.
Fenros was born in Khunrith, into the noble house of Allaway, the Duke of the far eastern boarder city. Despite being apart of the Noble class his father was very aware of the common folk. that the kingdom was not for the Lords and Ladies, but for the People. This made him appreciate those who served in his castle, treating them like his own family. He knew the names of every servant, and a little bit about them. He also did not want his children to be raised like spoiled brats, and while at the same time training them to be knights, he also made them do some of work with the servants. Learning everything that needed to be done in the castle and doing it till they were proficient at it. This greatly influenced Fenros as he came to see the true meaning of hard work, and the hardships the peasants went through. Because of this gift from his father, he is one of the very few in the kingdom nobility that is disgusted with the other nobles and even king.
Like mentioned above, Fenros had a very different life growing up in the Allaway Castle. His father groomed him to take over the family estate, and values. Trained him to be one of the best Knights in the kingdom, as his father was. From hand to hand, to swordsmanship, to even using a bow. Fenros pushed himself to the point that he was already defeating other knights when he was still a squire.
When he was sixteen and still a squire he participated in a battle defending one of their fortresses. His knight who was training him was gravely wounded, Fenros picked up his blade and continued the fight. Despite his inexperience in a real battle, his natural skill with the blade was far ahead most of the foot soldiers that tried to breach the wall. He was on the wall of the fortress, his back to the only door which lead to the ground. He held of the attackers till reinforcements came. Multiple accounts of his bravery and skill were passed onto the Lord of the keep after the battle was won, The lord Decided to knight Fenros that day. Three years before the normal age of knighthood. He received his coat of arms and the name of The Undaunted.
His reputation continued to grow with each battle after, Two years later he was recruited into the Vanguard, and with his skill was placed as the new bodyguard for the Princess. Here he spent a few more years, becoming close with the princes. When he was twenty-five he saved the prince and princess single-handily in an assassination attempt that nearly was successful. Fenros was gravely injured during this but managed to survive. He was then recognized for his service and bravery. He was offered any position he desired, and surprised everyone with wishing to continue to be the Princess's body guard.
A prodigy with the sword.
A formidable tactician.
He is very charismatic.
Natural born leader.
Women, he can't help but flirt.
He has a temper at times mostly when it comes to dealing with fat/lazy/all nobles.
He can get lost in fighting, he enjoys the challenge and gets caught up in it. He tends to have too much fun while doing so.
Fenros is one to lay down his life to save a group a peasants he doesn't know. He is also well known and liked by the people.
His temper while dealing with imbeciles. Usually happens in the court, or will during negotiations with a group he clearly dislikes.
As a Noble he does have some weight in the court. Everyone knows him from his deeds as a knight, and his rather blunt and opposite view upon the world. Because of this, many would hear how kind of a man he is with the common folk, and could rally the people to his banner and with the numbers of the people overthrow the kingdom.
"... The men were ordered to take the princess, but if that was not possible, kill her. The small group of five men surrounded the carriage and jeered and mocked the princess to come out after ripping the door open. When she would not listen one of them would try to go in after her, This he didn’t mind, he had plans for the beautiful princess before they reached their destination.
The Princess had moved her brother behind her and was trying her best to glare at the men, but all she could muster was a small glare along with a look of true fear. “Leave us alone! There is nothing we could possibly have that you want right now. If it’s money you want, take these.” Eleanor threw her crown and all the jewelry she had on at the men from the furthest point away from the door in the carriage. When one of them tried to climb into the carriage she did not hesitate to try and kick him in the face as much as she could, trying to deter him from climbing into the carriage.
A few moments later, galloping could be heard as the other men around the carriage started to yell and raise their weapons and ran towards where the carriage came from. Fenros crashed into the first man, jumping off the horse and landing on the second, his sword stabbed into the man’s chest as he fell and Fenros rolled to his feet. Just in time to dodge a swing from the third man, grip his sword arm and pulled down, while raising his knee and breaking the man's elbow and ripping the sword from it to parry the fourth man’s sword. Fenros slashed and parried with this fourth attacker for a few blows but quickly dispatching him with a stab to the gut.
He then ran towards the carriage where the fifth one was oblivious to the outside because he was being kicked every few seconds. “Such a feisty princess! I love ones with fire in them. Never been with a royal myself though…” He sudden winced and was pulled out of the carriage rather roughly, with the sound of steel entering flesh. A few seconds later Fenros poked his head into the carriage, all bloodied from his his head wound, and covered in enemy blood. “Are you alright Princess?” He asked while breathing hard. He winced as he held his side, noticing pain for the first time. He looked down to see an arrow tip just barely sticking out from his hip. Apparently an arrow had caught him from behind when he was riding. He hid it with the carriage door from Eleanor.
Eleanor looked at the man in horror at what he said but when she watched him get pulled out and then heard the sound of him being stabbed she became hopeful. Then she saw Fenros and despite his appearance, tears of relief began to stream down her face and she smiled and nodded, not trusting in her ability to speak at the time. But her smile fell when he winced, she had known him long enough to know he was hiding something based off of him looking down at himself then hiding part of his body behind the carriage door. “What happened? Are you hurt?” El asked rather quickly.
Fenros grunted with a sigh of relief as she looked literally unharmed. He smiled at her as she asked if he was hurt. It’s nothing, just a scratch.I’m sorry I wasn’t here sooner.” he said, Last thing he needed was to be worried about him. At this moment. But before he could say another word or think of getting on the carriage to race for the castle, he heard more men running towards them He lifted his sword once again and looked seeing ten more men rush towards them. Stay inside Princess... He said as he turned to face them...”
