Frederick Aurelian positioned himself in the midst of a small skirmish, yet the situation proved dire for the Novellen. Recently he had united with a mercenary group for this battle, but his blunder was to pursue its inexperienced commander. Subsequently, it had now ushered Frederick to face a daunting ambush of a battalion of spearmen in front of men. In a swift motion, he immediately parried a lunge from a spearman before sauntering forward and piercing the soldier in his chest. Bathing in a shortened glimpse of glory and advance, the male discovered himself tackled downwards brutally and propounded a mouth brimmed of grit and dirt. The flavour deemed bitter and impure, exceedingly akin to the spoils of fleeting conflict. In a rigid and flailing moment, Frederick’s sword flung - rendering him solely unarmed. Rising valiantly to knee level, a riling palm scrambled and scratched unrelentingly at the muddied floor in search of his weapon. His leverage. 

 

The soldier distinctly did not seek to capitulate the stout countenance he rallied and wrought, for grimed arms began to grapple with the Novellen. A rapid reaction transpired in Frederick and, once more, a set of palms attempted to scavenge for his sword upon the crimson floor of battlehood. As a result, the male could only locate a tattered shield, in which he clasped and functioned such as a gauntlet. The shield, sorrowfully, did not have time to be acquainted with its new owner for it persisted forwards to smash upon the soldier’s visage. Cranium-on. A newfound sensation of adrenaline pumped amongst the blood of Frederick as the shield continued to maul its face until the piercing sound of bones crushing and grinding ceased. 

 

Laced with a cavernous sigh of repose hindered from Frederick, he shot a glower at this tattered, wearied shield that had halted the threat to his life. An impression of vigorous recognition embraced the blood splattered male, for etched upon the shield lay the sigil of Lorraine. He only had his studies of when he was but a juvenile to thank. A quizzical frown began to seek refuge upon the perimeter of Fredericks dirtied visage, before instantly regaining all senses. Abruptly, he gripped the nearest sword he could observe. Only then did Frederick advance forth, both the tattered shield of Lorraine and the muddied sword tightly gripped betwixt carmine digits. 

 

He had to recommence the fight.

The Lotharingian Company was first formed in Aeldin, serving as mercenaries for various kingdoms and settlements in an attempt to solve lordly or political disputes within the realms of Marna and Ulmsbottom. With countless unimportant battles being fought in the lands of Aeldin, Frederick believed the value of the company should be shifted back to his homelands, and to the lands of Almaris. 

 

The Lotharingian Company, many of whose soldiers consist of a hybrid culture of Orenian and Savoyard, is formed to unite the followers of Frederick Aurelian in these troubling times. The company will be used for both the protection and war efforts in which the soldiers within the company are for hire. 

 

Albeit the company is made of the remnant followers of the Kingdom of Oren, the intention of the group is on the followings and beliefs of Lucienism and avenging the death of King Frederick and establishing a homeland within the realm of Almaris.

“I shall find a path, or I shall forge one myself” - Augustus d’Amaury

 

The company fights together as one group, as one army and with it the differences in ranks is bare to none. With only one clear defined leader, the officers are exceptional soldiers within the company but with no official rank that is higher. But with their exceptional standard comes the respect of all the other soldiers within the company.

The Medal of the Iron Duke

This medal is only awarded to soldiers within the company who have shown great leadership in battle, and that has led the company to victory. Those who are awarded the Medal of the Iron Duke, prove to be of great leadership capabilities.


 

The Medal of Arpad 

This medal is awarded to those company members who through months of arduous training in the blade finally have an opportunity to display the fruits of said training, proving their hand at the blade through tournaments and either in battles or duels against foes in greater number or skill then themselves. These soldiers prove to be formidable soldiers in the midst of combat and customarily are the ones to be placed in the vanguard or in the rearguard position during or following a retreat.


 

The Medal of Frederick Charles

This medal is awarded posthumously to the fallen company soldiers who performed the greatest sacrifice and forsook their lives in the pursuit of their duty, dying heroically for the sake of their fellow soldiers who shall stride to follow in their example. Only on the rarest and most extreme occasion shall this medal be awarded to those soldiers that perform a sacrifice nearing the feat of those who passed. The medal is to accompany the fallen member of the company at their place of burial, though not all fallen company soldiers shall receive this honor.

The Countess of Mardon, Maude Fredericka Augusta Mary, caught wind of the Lotharingian company's founding from her equerry, a wispy stream of air exeunting from her lips. The twin sister of Frederick Aurelian feld the paper against her stomacher, her stormy gaze affixed upon the Petran countryside in thought. 

"Maximilian," She beckoned the young servant boy, laying a gloved palm warmly upon his shoulder, the other fiddling with another of her father's medallions. "Bring me pen and parchment. I will have to write to my brother, the Prince who lived. There is much we must speak about, it seems."

Ser Darius would for the last time remove the worn-out and aged armour Petran Legion, displaying it within his chambers on an armour stand as he spent the next several minutes gazing at it, recollecting many memories from his youth before stepping out to take the colours of the Lotharingian Company alongside his new companions.

Sir George would unsheathe his sword for the first time in ages. After a long period of time, he would come back to the call of arms and adone himself in Lotharingian Company armour. The time has finally come, and he will follow Frederick to every battle he shall face.

The Savoyard tapped his helmet which he had tucked under his arm. Ser Sebastien gazed out over the vastness of ruin and overgrowth. “What an interesting cause my cousin has committed himself to… I suppose we shall see in the coming years if his endeavor bears fruit.”

"Three days, just wait three days." said Lucius Galbraith, remembering another Orenian Savoyard motto pronounced during times of conflict.

"Honestly, what use is there of mercenary companies now peace has come? Their timing is... a little off." Cardinal Viktor sighs, hoping this 'Lotharingian Company' would behave
