Persona History:

Mid 14th Century Great Britain.

I was born in the year 1320 in Ireland. I spent my formative years in England and Ireland whilst my father was banished from France (D’Alton). Specifics of banishment were vague but were related to some sort of dalliance with a female companion of Prince Phillip. My father gained favor with Edward II for his support of Hugh Despenser and received a manor house near Bedford. Being a younger son I was destined for the clergy and received several years of training it Grovebury in Bedford. Being a cleric wasn’t my cup of tea so I escaped my fate and entered training in arms at Bedford court around 1337. By 1339 I was in France burning villages and laying siege to castles. I was at the battle of Sluys, in 1340, and nearly drowned thanks to seasickness. It’s hard to fight while….wooozy. I returned home to the manor and tried my hand at domestic life but when the Earl of Northampton went back to France I was with him at Crecy in 1346. I returned home to help quell some Scottish rabble in 1347 then farmed peaceably until 1355 when I returned to France for the siege of Carcassone and the battle near Poitiers in 1356. I returned to England as part of the escort for the captured King John of France. I made a pilgrimage to the Holy land journeying through Avignon, Palma, Rome, Athens and Byzantium starting in 1360.
