HISTORY: Born of illicit meanderings to a brothel whore, Uriel was born to the unfortunate life of a fatherless commoner. His mother worked the days and nights away to entertain the lonely and the lusting of the Landing and the only knowledge the boy's father was that the man was a Knight of considerable riches before his death some years ago. At the cusp of adolescence, the boy began to journey further from the Slums of his birth, to take on odd jobs while his Mother worked her days away. Throughout the port city, the boy became known as a helping hand, not one to let a struggling stranger pass without offering assistance.
RELATIONS: Raalvara - The only question in Uriel's mind is why Raalvara would leave him the way that she has. He tries not to resent her for this. Raal Podric - Valhart and Flanders, super detectives. He is happy that he met Pod and that he has an ally that understands his devotions. Luam Jaden - Uriel questions Jaden's motives more and more as of late. He has become wary. CloakedReaper Sigmar - He wishes that Sigmar would join him on the journey of faith. They are the future after all. He finds the lad's loss of heart saddening and wants to help in any way he can so they can one day serve justice to the Dark Order together. Archbishop Helena - Uriel almost wishes that Helena were not involved with those that she chooses to know. He worries for the woman and her safety in present company. His soft spot for the Lady Valdis grows, he hopes that it is not in vain. He fears the day that he must be the one to put her in a cell, for the actions that she may be dragged into allowing. Elz Kamaoe- Uriel finds Kam to be a great woman to be around. He hopes she can teach him lots in the way of combat and that he can teach her much in the way of Valiant, as he will her son. Kamaoe Jerr'co- Uriel hopes that he and Jerr'co will tread the path Valiant sets before them and become heroes in their own right. Tot Ardaric-
A sense of resentment flows toward the Tideborne. Uriel does not appreciate his claims of corruption, nor his blatant disregard for truth during the trial. However, he has not yet allowed this to cloud his judgement of the man wholly. Tideborne Karn- Uriel holds distaste for Karn, as he would any murderer. He does not feel like the punishment given was nearly enough. He wonders if Valiant agrees with this. ironassassin Mikolaj- A friend from years gone by, yet loyalties have not dwindled. He is glad the man has taken up his name once more. He cannot wait to bear the standard of battle beside his brother and enter the histories as they liberate the Eberlands. Paint Cymic- Uriel's thoughts of the so-called King are low. He does not believe that he is a good man, nor does he think he is a good King. The more he disrespects Uriel and those around him, the more Uriel finds distaste in the man and the country he represents. Cymic_ Emily- He is unsure if she was making fun of him or being honest and that confuses him. However, he does know that her condition means that he has to double his efforts in the City, to ensure that it is safe. Strangely, there is a sense of disjointed kinship rooted from their similar origins. Sizzix
Let it be known, the lands and foothills surrounding the Valsaddle to the South of the Blackrush Crossing are henceforth declared independent from any sovereign nation. This Valiant Theocratic holding, residing in what shall be known as the Hartlands, answers only to the Will of the Crusader, for He is their patron.
With this claim of land and declaration of independence, it should be noted that no titles or claims to nobility are made. This land is held not for hereditary succession, nor for personal glory, it is held for the faithful of Valiant so they may have a suitable place to honour him.
Uriel is claiming that the lands within the red limits above are part of an independent theocratic settlement that answers only to Valiant and not to Blackrush or any other political entity.
