Jamie’s Backstory Corbinon House - Lord Jonathan Corbinon, male human fighter 8/cavalier 2, Sir Lyle II, male human fighter 8, Sir Jonathan II, male human fighter 7, Sir Matthew, male human fighter 6, Sir Luke, male human fighter 5, Jackson, male human fighter 4, Henry, male human fighter 4, and David, male human fighter 3, Lady Elizabeth, female human aristocrat 4 Lyle Corbinon earned a knighthood and eventually a noble title defending the Village of Denz from Minotaur raids prior to the construction of the Denz Keep. He passed on his title to his only son, Jonathan Corbinon. Jonathan went on to sire many sons, Sir Lyle II, Sir Jonathan II, Sir Matthew, Sir Luke, Jackson, Henry and David. After many years, The Corbinon House was blessed with another son, but few remember Lady Elizabeth being pregnant prior to the arrival of Jamie. The Corbinon title encompasses the north-eastern portion of the Waldorf Barony. Recently it has been revealed to you that your mother is your aunt (day/week before the real adventure). Your biological mother (Maria Screven - your real last name) came to stay with your adopted parents after becoming pregnant with the crown prince’s child. After giving birth to you, she asked your adoptive mother to assume her responsibilities as she would not be able to care for the child and the crown would not be understanding about the bastard child’s presence in the royal palace. Four years after resuming her duties in the royal palace your biological mother fell down the servant’s stairs and died. There was no formal inquiry into her death, but four other servants signed witness statements testifying to the official account. Your father went on to become king of Nibbenay and expanded the kingdom into the minotaur plains, claiming that domain as a second kingdom then declaring himself emperor of the newly conquered territory. While many have contested the validity of his title and the significance of the worthless plains, control of the area greatly improved the security of southern Nibbenay and left Denz as the only weak spot in the southern defenses. Your adoptive family has worked tireless to help secure the area and has made great strides toward ridding the barony of threats. You have been squiring for your brothers and training for the day you are graced with the opportunity to earn your own knighthood. Liz (mom): Well, that went splendidly. Jon (dad): Don't look at me. I told you he wasn't ready and should just give him some space. I wasn't worried about his ventures into the hills. He had a horse, apparently a new war horse, now that I think about it, and he favours his bow. He was fine. Liz: Did you see how much blood he was covered in? And the condition of his clothes? He wasn't hunting, he was being hunted. Jon: He made it back and so did his companions. It may have been a tough, and possibly senseless battle, but he survived. Liz: This time! We promised Maria we would keep him safe. Jon: And he is safe. You can't baby him your whole life. He was going to leave the nest eventually. The only thing keeping Jackson, Henry and David here is that they are holding out for their own knighthoods, which I can't even give them. Once they realize there's no future in our lands, they will petition another lord or baron for titles. Liz: I know. He was just so angry when he left. I don't think he'll come back.
Jon: He'll be fine. He kept his wits and caught me so off guard I didn't even get a swing on him. He's fast, clever, and wise enough to know when not to fight. He must get that from your sister. None of our boys had the good sense to retreat. It's only by the grace of Calhoun Lyle didn't kill me.
