Shards of the Shattered Pact: Seowyn's Crossing
Sir Karatacus Brightshield is a Summerling knight and the commander of the prestigious Phoenix Company. He has been in a number of smaller skirmishes over the years, but his first major conflict is the Three Heads War, in which he acted more or less as commander of the Summerlund forces. As such, the commanders of the forces of Tavanion, Dalenshire, and Faerinwold largely deferred to him.
Because some of the greatest individual contributions of the war came at the hands of the Fire Wasps, who had been relegated to his subordinate officer Merei Greenspear‘s Owlbear Company, Sir Karatacus simultaneously gained some prestige and some embarrassment. In retrospect, he now wishes he had not dismissed them as country bumpkins, perhaps using Kidalis Havengard’s noble blood as a reason to bring them into Phoenix Company.
