03/31/2020: So those of you who know me well, know that I have anxiety. It is worsened by solo travel, not having a specific place to be / tasks to do. When I am feeling a little adrift, it can be overwhelming. I travelled out of state to Steppes in 2018, for the Step-Down court of our 79th Crown, Jason Drysdale and Margherita de Mantua, where that year's Sable Swap gift exchange was occurring. The drive down had been in the dark and I was feeling very overwhelmed. I was standing in the main hall, overwhelmed and trembling. Kormakr noticed. Now, I had met him previously, but I would not describe us as friends, or knowing each other well whatsoever. But he noticed, and he came over. He is a physically large and imposing gentleman, but he took care to approach me in a gentle manner. In a quiet voice, he asked me if I was okay. I responded that I was not. He asked me what he could do to help. While I am NOT a person who allows casual physical touch, I asked him if I could have a hug. I just needed to feel safe for a moment, and he gave off such an air of concern and kindness, that I knew it would help. He gave me that hug, and then asked again: What else could he do to help? He assisted me with my basket, and got me set up in a corner of the room, when I indicated that would be appreciated. Kormakr then told me he would come and check on me later, to make sure I was okay - but that if I needed anything in the mean time, to seek him out - and then followed up on that promise later in the day. As I have said: He did not know me well. He did not see a dear friend in need - just someone who was floundering. That kindness and that awareness of others greatly impressed me. This man is Knightly - for his courtesy, his service, and his kindness. I cannot speak to his Prowess on the field - but I will tell you he is a champion of those who are weak, or helpless or in need.
