Chronicles of the Graceful Knight
Sir Damien Xanthippe
Not all old suitors go peacefully.
Sir Damien Xanthippe was once a suitor to Lady Koralia, back when she was a Justinian. She spurned his advances, and he has since vowed to see her dead. Adept at Kraxi knife fencing and uncaring for rules of courtly duels and etiquette, he is a potent ally and a deadly opponent.
He challenged Lady Koralia to a duel at the masquerade ball hosted by the Marquessa Lakoya Skareenon Asttanyani, governess of Byzantium Secundus, but had no intention of fighting an honorable duel. When caught attempting to use a shield breaker and murder Lady Koralia, he was removed from the ball by Duchess Oelestre Xanthippe.
The group is sure that they haven’t seen the last of him.
