Myrrexx the Paladin
I am Myrrexx D'Sylvia, faithful servant of my God. In my dreams, I have been Myrrexx before on countless worlds and in countless situations. Riding horses fighting barbarians to firing light from a hand contraption in a metal box with metal doors. This is only another instance. What is reality? Here I have no sister, but In my dreams Lorraine is with me. Or is that somewhere else? Time to wake up.
Although my father was away most of the time, his influence on me was severe. I was always thinking about joining his army and fighting by his side. Weekly, then daily practice at the barracks had a hand in strengthening my body and fighting spirit. On the flip side, my mother was always dragging me to church. After actually listening to what the priests were saying, I understood that my fighting spirit also needed to be grounded in understanding. Swordplay during the day and reading the good word at night. An eye for an eye and all that.
I stand six foot two, a beanpole of a not quite man. Brown hair and my mother's green eyes. I sit here writing this to myself but hoping others will read it after I fall. After my mother's death, the church helped with my sorrow. Brother Teft, bless his soul, comforted me best he could. He also introduced me to the temple's fighting order. To best serve both my parent's memories, I pledged myself to the church and to all that pertained. I'm no expert on God and his ways, but the first time He allowed me to heal during a practice was awe inspiring. Once I was able to cast simple spells, the Bishop granted me the title Paladin Protem. Apparently the order is short on Paladins.
The order has allowed me the opportunity to learn and see God's influence in the world. My goal is to earn the title Paladin, not just hold a title on paper, so with this in mind, I plan to raise my fighting ability, call on guidance from my God and smite my God's enemies where I find them. I'm guessing I'll need to eat as well and earn the money for armor and such, so we'll see what come available and take any opportunity that presents itself.
