Sir Madoc the Blunt is a rare example of a man who managed to raise his station in the world, and likewise an example of why that doesn’t always work out so well. His demeanor was shaped by his life as the son of a laborer and a young admittance into the City Guard. He demonstrated a certain talent for keeping the peace, likely due to his innate ability with a mace and a short tolerance for obfuscation. As such he rose to sergeant, and was in the perfect place and time to protect a traveling Lord loyal to the soon-to-be usurped king from an assassin, at the cost of six months of recovery and a lingering ache in his left side.
Impressed by this guard, Lord Roderick took Madoc as a squire and eventually Madoc earned his knighthood. His loyalty has always remained to the true lineage, and more directly to Roderick. Blunt as ever, Madoc has yet to learn the finer points of court etiquette, making himself quite unfavored by the Usurper.
