Sir Malias de Brac

Veritas nas defendit

 

 

French noble Knight

Marshal of the lists

 

Born in 1395 of English parents but in Burgundy, Malias was an ardent follower of Philippe 111 and became one of Philippe’s trusted knights, bestowing on him the Order of the Golden Fleece in 1429.

Due to a disputed tourney result which led to the death of his opponent in a non chivalrous manner, Malias was forbidden to return to Burgundy until he had proven himself  once more on the tourney fields of England. Having been banned from the continent Malias formed an alliance with a German knight of questionable ethics, Sir Otto von Strasburg and between them hired a young Scottish knight of fierce ability and little patience with the niceties of chivalry and no particular loyalty to either Knight.
