Front Page: Prince Prevails Northeast of Doraat Edit
The Prince’s army engaged the Godwin main force, which approached from the north, in battle norttheat of Doraat, and succeeded in deriving them back. Primcess Lymsleia herself accompanied the Godwin army, but it is thought that she safely withdrew to Sol-Falena along with the core of Godwin troops.
“The rebel army has gone too far even for them! Imagine, to revolt against our fair Queen herself?” a Godwin spokesperson said. The people of Falena aren’t buying this propaganda, however, and popular perception is that the Godwins themselves put Princess Lymsleia in harm’s way.
Back Page: Lyon Severely InjuredEdit
“The Dawn Times” has learned that the Prince’s bodyguard Lyon, was critically wounded in the recent engagement northeast of Doraat. Even though she seems to have narrowly escaped death thanks to the healing effort of Dr. Silva, Lyon remains in coma, critically wounded.
Without a hint of celebration anywhere in Ceras Lake Castle over the recent victory, we have been strongly reminded of exactly how important Lyon really is to our cause.
Serials: Portraits of the Enemy: Queen’s KnightEdit
In the engagement northeast of Doraat, the Queen's Knights – meant to serve and protect the Royal household of Falena – were instead divided into two camps and forced to do battle, essentially destroying themselves from the inside.
Today, we focused on the Queen’s Knights. Their history dates back to the founding of Falena, but they were originally a part of the imperial defense knights with hundreds of members.
But when the capital was relocated to Sol-Falena, an Imperial Defense Corps was organized separately. Instead, the Queen’s Knights were assigned as “personal bodyguards” to protect the Queen and her closest relatives alone.
Their numbers were also drastically reduced, with less than ten at any given time. Being chosen as Queen’s Knight, therefore, meant being recognized as one of the best warriors in Falena; there was no higher honor.
It is certainly distressing, then to see warriors given such a distinguished honor become mere puppets of the Godwin faction.
