The Cortez Family
The Cortez family is a young family formed from a marriage between two merchants hundreds of years ago. All descendants of this proud, fierce family have been loyal to their kings. The first man who became involved in military services was Matthis Cortez. He had a good life, married with Allesandra di Baldini. They had 4 kids: Stefan, Allessandro, Cassander and Lucinda. They've also adopted a son, Fag'nar.
Stefan's young boy, strong from his hard training. He learned all his military skills from Sir Ector. He was knighted by the king of Old Rancagua. Now he's a knight of Pucallpa He hasn't fought many battles yet (2 to be precise) but he's only 18 years old. He lives in a nice house between Salta and Ashfort together with his lovely wife, Amanda. They've taken over a small shop from Amanda's father. There they sell all kinds of stuff; clothes, bags, armor, food etc.
Allessandro discovered his talent in his early childhood. He was very good in persuading, intimidating and convincing people. With that skill, he already sold goods for higher prices then normally. Selling his friends stuff like wooden toys, wooden practicing swords and other things children are interested in, he wanted to become a trader. Now he's a trader for Old Rancagua
As a young boy, he always was adventurous. He made huts, chased rabbits, slept in tents (which were located in the garden) and much more. Matthis learned him to throw with knifes. He was extremely good at it, and kept practicing. After 3 years he could hit trees from a huge distance. Nowadays he has good profit of that ability. That's because he became an adventurer.
This black-haired, fierce girl left her family fast and went to the Far East Islands. There she quickly gathered a troop of 21 archers, and then immediately towards the battlefield. She joined one huge battle, lost 17 men, and found it all to much. She went back to Pucallpa. Never again she was seen in any battle.
Military history of the members
Here some of the history discribed.
Stefan started with 16 infantry, the Blades Of The Tree. He went to Ashfort, but I was inactive for a while, had bonds of 108 gold, so they left me. I recruited 18 new man (55/65), and were called Templars of the Tree. After a short while they joined up in a battle against 28 monsters. It was a good victory and they suffered only 3 casualties. 4 dats later they were abandoned for 16 archers (50/60, 4 range). He also went once to a tournament in Sirion. He was knocked out in the first round, but still earned 3 honour.
Well, as a trader he hasn't seen much battles. But he did supply a starving region. No other people did this, so he actually saved the region in his own.
There is not much to tell about her military history. She joined one battle. But it sure was a rough one! In 3 rounds, she lost 10 men out of the 21. The total battle lasted 8 rounds, but her archer retreated to the back and scored some low hits. Luckily they won, but with more casualties then the enemy's. That was caused by a troop of 64 cavalry.
