Introduction

I am Jean-Oste de Murat. I joined the SCA in fall 2010, just for the Period Fencing Activities at the Havre des Glaces (Québec). But then, I met enthusiastic people and finally... I am here

Persona

I was born at the end of the spring of 1483, in the city of Murat, in French Auvergne. My father was Didier de Murat, modest knight who obtained title and lands by his own arm, and my mother was Lady Marie, daughter of a local bourgeois.

At 16 year-old, my father left me in the commandery of Celles [1], under the supervision of the Knight Hospitallers of St-John of Jerusalem [2], as a squire. Curious and interesed in everything, I learnt to read and to write, and to fence.

Sping 1503: according to the Hospitalers requirements, my family was not noble enough to allow me to become a knight. So, I joined the fleet of the Grand Prior of the tongue of Auvergne, Guy de Blanchefort [3], in the Island of Rhodes, in order to be introduced to the Grand Master Pierre d'Aubusson [4]. He gave me what I needed: his authorization to become a Brother Sergeant at Arms. I left Rhodes few days before the death of d'Aubusson.

Come back home, I was charging to protect the pilgrims of St James of Compostella [5] between le Puy en Velay and Conques [6], until winter 1509. I wished to traval and ask to my superiors some missions abroad: I was sent first in tiny islands in exotic ocean, then in the kingdom of England, and finally, I had to get in touch with people of the EastKingdom.

I settled in the Barony of the Havre des Glaces, where I was introduced to their Excellencies Baron Arthur de Beaumont and Baroness Shadiyah al-Zhara. During the winter 1512, they give me the great honor to protect them with my arm. Now, in order to improve my loyalty, my knowledge and my involvement towards the EastKindom, Magister Godfroy de Falaise gave me a quest... I will probably die because of that, but I will try to do my best.
