QUINTUS OF THISBURY
Knighted in 480 after squiring with Lord Rodrick of Sarum. The knighting took place with Richard, Thomas, Wehlen and Morgamar and Maddock.
Survivor of the battles of:
Mt Damen (484)
Mircred Creek (485)
Lyndsey (490) (had to defeat 2 giants in single combat after Sir Thomas’s tactical blunder.

Married Lulia in 480 who tragically died after giving birth to their second child in 484.
Remarried in 485 to Iguan of Boscone who died in 498. Remarried a third time to Ysolde (definitly not a witch) who then also died in 499. After this Quintus decided the world hates the idea of him being married so he lives the rest of his life in chastity and solitude.
In 497 died in the Fae realm while sparring with a guard there. Cannot go back
In 498 he received a visit from a mysterious headless horseman with an axe giving him a message about reclaiming his wife (she was a widow of a knight slain in battle). WIfe did some weird ritual and now Quintus is definitly an atheist.
Currently father of 11 children:
The boy Gaius born in 482 (named after his father) to Lulia
The boy Varo born in 483 (named after his grandfather) to Lulia
The girl Lulia born in 486 (named after Quintus’s first wife who died the year before, probably pissed off his current wife) to Iguan
The boy Octavius born in 487 (named after the first roman emperor, augustus would be too much hubris for the modest Quintus)
The boy Richard born in 488 (after the man who looked after his family during the events of 481, a good friend and fellow saxon hater)
The boy Morgamar born in 489 (named after Sir Morgamar who died in 487)
Wahlen born in 492 (named after Sir Wahlen)
Belandes born in 494 (named after Sir Belandes)

GAIUS (Baron, castellan of the Joyeus Garde, Chivalrous knight, Religious knight, Knight of the Round Table and now Knight of the Holy Grail)
Born in 482. Became Lord of Thisbury in 504 under count William.
Thrice Married, once to Imowen who then died the year after. Another cursed by the Thisbury legacy. From this marriage came three children and Gaius took on the title of Baron. The last time he married to Meinlyth, a girl he rescued after helping the knight of the wolfs. He married her in 514 after getting her pregnant (much against the usually very chaste Gaius)
In 511 Gaius married Anna.
Gaius has five children:
Octavius in 504, a bastard child Gaius conceived with a fae woman while escorting Nineve.
Billius and Quintus in 506, twins. Mother is Imowen.
Ysolde in 507. Imowen died in childbirth.
Derreck in 514 with Meinlyth
In 509, gained an enemy of the same standing as Gaius (so a baron)
In 510, he guarded the sword in the stone for months as one of the chosen 10.
In 511. He and his earl Robert fought through and later besieged a castle filled with ghosts, giants and lions. He later gained the castle to hold in the name of Earl Robert.
Later that year he embarassed himself in front of High King Arthur who also tasked him to organize a tournament for him in 512.
Built a church dedicated to saint wilfred in 513 after his pilgrimage to find answers to the Thisbury curse of their wives dying at childbirth.
In 514 he became one of the first appointees of the round table.
In 515, Gaius together with his earl Robert and ser Derreck went to investigate the earthquake that year. After many trials testing their chivalry, swimming and latin reading skills they arrived at castle Joy where Gaius helped king Fisherman heal and gained a deep passion for the Holy Grail (and solved the quest for the holy grail?). But sadly at the battle that followed he fell. Heavily inspired by the sight of the Holy Grail, Gaius led his unit (containing Derreck and Robert) but came across Klingsor, the half demon enemy commander. They slayed each other in one blinding exchange of blows, Klinsor’s bodily form being eradicated for the time. He chose to come back at the price of having to man Castle Joy for all eternity, thus becoming a knight of the holy grail.
