Persona History:

Brian was born the second son of a minor Irish nobleman in 1287. For the first several years of his life he was educated in the church, but was called back home when his father and older brother brother were killed in battle. His mother then married an English nobleman from Welewen to keep the lands and Brian proved useful, so was kept around.

Brian has traveled across much of the world in combat, as a bard seeking patronage, or as a herald. In his travels, Brian met a lady from Wales, gaining her favor and eventually her hand in marriage.
