Character Description and History

Son of a waterdivian blacksmith, his father tried in any way to train Brandimarte to follow him in his craft, sadly the youngster was never able to get past the threshold between willing helper and true craftsman.

Dreaming of glorious adventure in the name of his god, Brandimarte attached himself to a passing paladin as non-official squire. He was "adopted" by his mentor's company. All the members, liking him for his candor, good humor, and willingness, tried to help him reach paladinhood, to no avail. He simply wasn't made for that.

Neverthless, strong as an ox and resilient, Brandimarte became a fearsome warrior and determined to be the best "not-quite-paladin" around.

On reaching adulthood he entered service in the temple of Lathander in Waterdeep as lay knight; there he met Deianira, at the time a senior novice, and promptly fell in love with her. Feeling that she would not consider him suitable, he tried to be assigned to tasks that would keep them apart, but the temple autorities chose the steady, calm warrior as the ideal adventuring escort for the unruly, impulsive young priestess.

During a research expedition on a long forgotten religion, the two found themselves separated from their companions of the time and lost in Har-Akir of Ravenloft. There they met the Black Roses and banded with them to escape.

They have been together ever since.
