It occurs to me that this Chronicle is missing an important entry: Who are my most faithful guard, those that serve their king with loyalty and purpose? I will endeavour to explain we well as I can.
Brook is my faithful Bard, the best in the land. So great, in fact, that Sanguine, the Daedric prince himself, has decided that one day Brook will be his chief Bard. I don’t trust the Daedra, but I trust Brook with my life. It is because of his work that I am know far and wide and the message that we are strong and fierce has passed throughout the lands of Skyrim. People tremble at my approach not only because I am a force to behold, but because Brook has sung my praises so that they may prepare themselves for my coming. I am lost without him.
Orthane the Giant Slayer is my right hand, a Fighter of great power. He is a brutal warrior, and has shown time and time again that he cannot be defeated when he weilds that Katana of his. It is my hope that I never have to fight him, for slaying a master as him will sadden my heart. I expect there are those that feel he could defeat my, but no man can defeat Destiny. Perhaps, once I am King, he will challenge me and I will be forced to dispatch him. It is my wish that this great man will continue to serve the Realm with the passion that he has shown thus far. I shall continue to send challenges his way that will keep him off the path for the throne as long as I can to spare him.
Flaminem is my spiritual advisor, a Shaman of the North. He has been able to harness the power of Talos on several occasions to ensure our victory against the Imperials. Without his guidance, we would have lost many battles and my Throne would be much further off. I lean on him heavily. His ways are very strange, such as this business of claiming the hearts of his enemies, as he claims they give him power if he consumes them. He has shown he has that power, so who am I to complain?
Huster the Unclean is a strange one. He is always there when I need him and has shown he can accomplish tasks without guidance. I understand not his ways and I will eventually teach him the discipline that I expect from those who serve me, but his loyalty is without question in my mind. He a fantastic scout, being able to disappear and reappear with some sort of Magic I cannot understand. Although I have never seen a wizard quite like him, I can only assume that is what he is. I can only expect that once he learns his place, my enemies will tremble before me as he shows them his magical might. I only wish he would bathe more often.
I hope this explains my friends and faithful servants well enough. My journals will tell a better tale over time.
