With the weather getting nippier, Lord Half-elf doned his best fox pelt over his knightly armour.
Many say he has special powers that manifest when the new moon is high, others believe that he is no longer capable of casting magic as he is getting older.

The luck of finding a four legged companion that within capacities understands your hopes and fears further than expected is a true blessing.
Wordless support with just a hug that helps to hang on a little longer when going through the worst of times.

Though generic, this Knight is wearing a coat of arms chained to his armour. Historically, when a knight had his full armour on, even his friends couldn’t recognize him. Because of this, they began to put the symbol of their Lord or King in their armour. This is how it got the name “coat of arms”.

We have mentioned before that impracticable pieces of armour found their way onto a battlefield more than once but this lad is not off to war. He’s actually on his way to show his mates what his cool uncle got him from his travels.
