Current Description:

February 10, 2002:
The warrior that stands before you meets your gaze clearly, without shame or fear, and returns it with eyes of the darkest brown, almost black. His thick shoulders are squared, held with pride and strength and a courtly grace. At a towering height of three inches past six feet tall, his bulk might seem oafish on another, but he bears himself with skill and dexterity. It would be easy to imagine him as comfortable escorting a lady to the dance, as it would dispatching a wicked creature menacing the young or helpless.
His smile is gentle, his gaze gentlemanly and not lecherous. Well schooled in the courtly arts, this warrior-priest calls to mind the anticent tales of heroes who gave their all for the honor of a lady, or the protection of the weak. His eyes flash with bravery and honor, passion and loyalty, but his heart belongs to only the lady of his life, and his fellow Tigers.
A faint flickering light dances in the air before him. A slight frown creases his handsome face, and he raises a hand to lightly caress the shimmering aura. "Go in peace," he whispers softly. For a moment, he is surrounded by a bright, incandescent glow, as he grants the soul release from its torment. His eyes return to yours, and he nods solemnly. "Too often, the value of souls is not given proper respect. This is a bloody land... but even still, grace exists."
Garland is in perfect health.
