“None we know, can flawless recite as many Coat of Arms as The’D Fish”
In 1163 Ed Ar was born the first son of a Fisher and a Woodcarver and as a kid he favoured playing at the shore of Lake Ancorr at the eastern end of the gargantuan Oldrim Valley. Always splashing in the water, or diving, as time passed and skills grew, into the Widow Caves at the lakes eastern side.
There he found several remains of long-lost divers, or unlucky travellers from high above, who had stepped on the wrong grass or slipped on no so steady a stone. These finds of course revealed that he dived there, despite strict warnings not to do so. But, the more he found the bigger became his interest in old things and who the corpses where. So, he began to study old records of lost people.
At the age of 7 he one day dived deep into a cave and when emerging inside a hole from above he had not previously visited, he saw a red-haired man, signalling to him to be silent, and pointed. Across the dark surface, at a hangout in the holes side, sat a really nasty looking green slimy creature -staring right at him.
With a mighty back-flip it entered the water accompanied by a curse from the man. As the creature darted through the water Ed swam the fastest, he had ever done, and to the sound of jaws clashing to cut off his legs. The man yanked him up and used the momentum to spin-spearing his great two-hander right through a cloud of splintering teeth. “My god, you swim like a fish lad. I’m Wilson and that’s a Marshlip. The easiest one killed so far, by the way thanks for distracting it.”.
When they came to town, Wilson praised the lads swimming abilities and said it had been a great aid in killing the monster. Since then, he’s used his nick with pride, as this was the start of a 5 year long period as apprentice to a monster hunter. When he was about to come of age, Wilson brought him back and left that same day. Both have to my knowledge not shared the events during those 5 years, but The’D Fish had become a broad-shouldered excellent swimmer and quite skilled with blade and staff.

In 1180 The’D decided to travel to Srillo the capital of Scia. Where he spent the next 50 years advancing through their state administration. In 1230 he suddenly left, and was not recorded again until 1249, Where he was seen at Ye Olde Zaphirs beside Black Oak
In 1250, he became the 3rd ranked in The Three Herolds of the High King, a title he held until 1264 when Doodman advanced to 1st. During this time, he was the one of the three that traveled the most when court moved around. Both for the Fairs but also to temporarily settle disputes amongst Nobility.
1277 when The Great Invasion hit, he rode out alongside the High King, survived the sally but was forced to retreat back into Grimsborg. How he escaped none know, but he now rides with the old Black Oak in the Cleansing Crusade, ranked as 1st of Herolds.
Has vast knowledge about Nobility , Coat of Arms and Heredity, which has been invaluable since The Great Invasion.
