Written/ Created by J.W Curry
Harold Hudson was born on the island kingdom of Antillia 10,000 years ago. He served as a knight in the royal guard until he was about 50 and the kingdom fell at during a civil war. He left the island and became a wondering knight, soon joining the ranks of an order of the black knights, a group of independent knights loyal to no crown or kingdom. But instead help any persons in need.
He served under their banner until he was 98, when he died in combat against a demon named Legion after he discovered he was the cause of the destruction of an entire civilization. Despite being a seasoned veteran, and skilled at magical combat the demons powers and his command over a legion of demons proved too much for the knight and he fell in battle that day.
All hope was not lost however as the ravens known as
