Prior to the Green Moon, Gladium Nortus was a low-ranking knight in the realm of Joburn. He lived by his title as long as he could before the inevitable discourse of his cowardice spread on the battlefield. One such tale favoured among his peers was the high pitched shriek Gladium let loose when three enemy spear-men decided on one last charge before the end and had their sights firmly fixated on him.

The Panicked cry was mistaken for a rally to his men (Gladius and his band were from distant lands and shared a different tongue) and they fell on their faces begging for mercy.

To date, the ‘Gladius Shreek’ is known in the barracks for trainees and drill sergeants.
