The Wanderer

The wanderer was once a noble knight who fought for a noble cause. He defended kingdoms with his mighty blade, Armiger. He defended men. He sacrificed himself for many without reciprocation. But with each battle he lost a chunk of his flesh. Soon, even his brotherhood turned against him. He was casted aside and became a drifter. He decided to rid himself of his heart–his only weakness, hoping it would make him strong. But instead he felt only emptiness. With time, his heart began to grow back, but time and time again it was plucked from his chest. He wanted to be rid of it totally, but he could not. The voice of Armiger was his only guide. It was his only protection, his only rock, and his only strength. And with Armiger at his side, he was more powerful than those that opposed him.
