Verner Brooks always had dreams of becoming a Royal Knight of Allendale. He enrolled in his town's chapter of a military sword school, where the kingdom selects talented candidates to become
Squires, and eventually ascend to Knighthood. For two years Verner trained in the ways of the Arknives Sword, quickly becoming one of the school's top pupils. At the age of eleven, young Verner is
one of the stars participating in Allendale's Unification Festival. There he would show his skills in combat to all of Brookdale Shire and hopefully impress some Royal Knights in the audience. The
aspiring lad only has a few problems to face. One: his father overwhelmingly is against the idea of him becoming a soldier. Two: he has a case of unbecoming stage fright. Three: the other student
he was to fight in combat was an opponent he never bested in competition. Despite those daunting obstacles, there are other workings that will make that year's festival fateful. Verner had no idea
that the fairy stories about Royal Knights slaying Dragons and quelling dangerous Fae would prove more truthful than he'd like.
