Algorian the Tall, farmer of the North March, was a loyal king’s man, until the battle of Tanval. There he acquired a spear and his found his eyes opened to the abuses of power his people suffered under. He watched and learned, studied the nobles and how they twisted the laws to their own ends. He started talking with those other levies he had served with, began training with the militia.
When the Marchers rose in rebellion against their Earl, Algorian the Tall held the line against the knights. His spearmen were the rock that saved the rebellion.
