‘When all hope is lost, and those around them have fallen, that is when a true hero stands straightest.’
All through my training, and through my time as just another nameless body in a dented suit of armor, the engraving above the portcullis of my Noble’s castle kept me going. No matter how much it hurt, no matter how much I wanted to bend and break, I kept going, since I knew a true hero was my destiny.
When the time came for me to prove myself a true hero, I stood straight.
And took an arrow in the eye.
