Night has fallen and a cold light shines over the kingdom. Grizzled veteran Cuslo Mizzle wanders home alone, muttering to himself. "This whole kingdom is turning to into crap, to be sure. There's no way for us to rid ourselves of these vermin with such random death. Woe, oh woe, be unto us."
His frustration leaves him off guard, as the usually careful soldier absent-mindedly turns the corner to his boarding house.
The white faced figure cries, "Poundsy poundsy! Me breaks 'im to bits, breaks 'im to bits!"
Mizzle is taken aback. "What in God's name is this?" He goes to strike, but it's already too late.
"Poundsy, poundsy! Poundsy poundsy!"
He continues to strike, over and over until Mizzle is like shattered, beefy glass.
Mizzle's body is left in the moonlight for a passerby to discover.
He was Town.
Closer to the castle, Flanagan rides his cow home, wallowing in sorrow.
"My life is so damned sad. I will never be able to rise above my position, so what hope is there?"
He strokes his cow a few times.
"At least I have you, Bessy. I know you love me."
Bessy heads for the food trough.
As Flanagan ponders his small position in life, he hears a noise coming from the shadow.
Shocked, he exclaims, "I'm shocked!" He thinks about his situation. "Perhaps, if I were to defeat this beast, I could improve my sorry lot." He moves toward it.
"WALLA WALLA BONGA!" the green thing cries.
Flanagan is no more.
The green beast tips Bessy over before waddling off into the night.
Flanagan was Town.
In the boy king's throne room, the room is a little quieter than the night before.
"Why is the room not festive?" the boy king asks. "Where is my beloved Flanagan? He should be here to see this delicious blood letting."
Lord Wolverton leans over. "It appears he had an unfortunate end last night, as did Mr. Mizzle."
The boy king pauses to reflect on this. "Oh."
"Let us behead the lady and see what we can see."
And with that, The Lady of Darth became ten pounds lighter.
The boy king stares at his people, and speaks with a steely resolve.
"At a glance, we can see, she was no Witchbreed. We have failed. Do not fail me again."
The Lady of Darth was Town.
The Boy King - Your lord. Show him the respect he has been granted by God.
Mother - The Boy King's mom. Fear her.
Lord Wolverton - The Boy King's adviser. Stay on his good side.
Sir Carrots, The Knight (scubacarrot) - The ideal of a medieval Christian man-at-arms. He has participated in no less than fifteen of the great crusades of his era. Brave, experienced, and prudent.
Dragus, The Pardoner (darkdragon) - Dragus grants papal indulgences—reprieves from penance in exchange for charitable donations to the Church. He often collects profits for himself. He excels in fraud, carrying a bag full of fake relics.
Gilly Wooks, The Miller (Gingerwookie)- He a big mouth, both literally and figuratively. Wooks seems to enjoy overturning all conventions: he rips doors off hinges; and he tells a tale that is somewhat blasphemous, ridiculing religious clerks, scholarly clerks, carpenters, and women.
Voltana Panana, The Prioress (volcanicpanik) - Modest and quiet, this Prioress (a nun who is head of her convent) aspires to have exquisite taste. Her table manners are dainty, she knows French (though not the French of the court), she dresses well, and she is charitable and compassionate.
Christos Knight, The Summoner (Chromeknight)- Knight brings persons accused of violating Church law to ecclesiastical court. A lecherous man whose face is scarred by leprosy. He gets drunk frequently, is irritable, and is not particularly qualified for his position. He frequently attempts to sound educated.
Zam Kuric, The Clerk (zakura)- Kuric is a poor student of philosophy. Having spent his money on books and learning rather than on fine clothes, he is threadbare and wan. He speaks little, but when he does, his words are wise and full of moral virtue.
Skip Pudding,The Man of Law (Skipper)- A successful lawyer commissioned by the king. He upholds justice in matters large and small and knows every statute of England’s law by heart.
Wully Tintin, The Merchant (Wuntin)- Tintin trades in furs and other cloths, mostly from Flanders. He is part of a powerful and wealthy class.
Pirelly Dabito The Shipman (Piratedave) - Brown-skinned from years of sailing, Dabito has seen every bay and river in England, and exotic ports in Spain and Carthage as well. He is a bit of a rascal, known for stealing wine while the ship’s captain sleeps.
The Merchant's Wife, Yulie Yodie (Yumiyoshi) - Yodie focuses on propriety and appearances, maintaining a happy home. New to a life of wealth, her working class roots sometimes show through.
Biskie Partsy, The Boy King's Maid (Bricksandparts) - She is a hardworking woman, and has worked in the Royal household since she was a girl. She holds the Royal family in great esteem and values her position there.
Franklin Holmes, The Manciple (fhomess)- Holmes in charge of getting provisions for court. Despite his lack of education, he is smarter than the thirty lawyers he feeds.
Cecily Seas, Soiled Dove (Cecilie) - A once pure maiden who is no longer considered marriageable. A light and positive personality that worries not about the future.
Master Hale, The Summoner's Assistant (halomaster96) - Hale is a shy boy that has been taken under the Summoner's wing. While there are certainly unpleasant aspects to his position, he hopes the experience will give him freedom in life moving forward.
