Characteristics

Allegiance: First to the Lord, our God; second to King Demetrios Vasileiadis.
Hair color: Brown.
Eye color: Blue.
Impairment: Partial anosmia.
Distinguishing Features: Evgrius presents himself ostentatiously exclusively in his military attire to exemplify and make known his position in the Council of the Kingdom of Flintwhenia; his dealings are with the aristocratic, not with the common folk. He adorns several jewelry, aswell as a cross hung around his neck that symbolizes his steadfast devotion to God. Evgrius adopts a conical-shaped casqued helmet, topped with a tuft of Armenius' hair dyed in yellow and with hints of purple to symbolize the might of the Kingdom of Flintwhenia, complemented with ringmail to guard his neck. His torso is protected with typical Kataphraktoi scale armor, which extends towards his upper legs. Scale armor-based greaves, aswell as leather footwear and gloves completely encase his feet, legs and hands from harm. Over all this, Evgrius flamboyantly covers himself in a red linen cape with gold coloring around the interlocking area around his neck, presenting his royal heritage. His left hand bears the thyreos - a large oval shield which is draped in the flag of the Kingdom of Flintwhenia which displays its beautiful colors and is strapped unto his left arm when not in use. On horseback, Evgrius is armed with a lance. However, his choice of weaponry on foot is the paramerion, a curved sabre sword.

Kingdom of Flintwhenia; the Crown

Council Position: Marshal.
- The marshal is the member of the council in charge of the military. When the ruler will not or cannot command armies, the marshal will do it. Currently, Evgrius Vasileiadis serves as the Kingdom of Flintwhenia's Marshal. The Byzantine equivalent of a Marshal is known as Strategos.
War-time Designation: Kataphraktos.
- A cataphract was a form of armored heavy cavalry used in ancient warfare by a number of peoples in Europe, East Asia, Middle East and North Africa. The English word is derived from the Greek κατάφρακτος Kataphraktos (plural: κατάφρακτοι Kataphraktoi), literally meaning "armored" or "completely enclosed". Historically, the cataphract was a very heavily armored horseman, with both the rider and mount steed draped from head to toe in scale armor, while typically wielding a kontos or lance as their weapon. Cataphracts served as either the elite cavalry or assault force for most empires and nations that fielded them, primarily used for impetuous charges to break through infantry formations.
Council Relations: Great.

Armenius; the War-Horse

Horse Breed: Courser.
- A courser is a swift and strong horse, frequently used by the Middle Ages as a warhorse. The courser was more common than the destrier, and preferred for hard battle as they were light, fast and strong. They were valuable horses, but less expensive than the highly prized destrier. Occasionally, they were also used for hunting prey in the wilderness.
Distinguishing Features: Armenius is a black warhorse of courser breed whom is presented with a large, elegant mane that is well-kept by Evgrius himself. In times of peace, Armenius pronounces himself with the typical grace that is characteristic of a horse, and is covered in a miniscule amount of scars that have healed due to his short amount of time served thus far as Evgrius' warhorse. Kept in a royal stable in times of peace; in war-time, Armenius is draped in scale armor much like the Kataphraktoi's horses of the Byzantine usually are. A few years training as a warhorse has left Armenius able to carry adequate amount of load, enough for Evgrius to be both fast and supporting the weight of both his and Armenius' war-time equipment without much overencumberance.
Mount Relations: Tamed.
