Ser Henry Harrington was the oldest and only son of House Harrington. A small noble house which had actively engaged in the last great war. They wagered and lost. Not just the wager but everything. Ser Henry Harrington’s homeland was razed, his family put before the blade and his estate burned to ashes. Nothing has remained except for his knightly title, the clothes he wears and his cadre of loyal cavalry. And the worst of all, there was nothing that Ser Henry could have done to prevent it. It had happened while he was on campaign with the main army. It was only much later that he came home to find it in ashes. Eventually the land was usurped by a neighbouring lord. So he became a hedge knight or pauper knight together with the few veterans that were left after the war.

It is with this cadre that Ser Henry Harrington now travels the land. Moving from place to place as a hedge knight. A mercenary even. Selling his sword so that he and his men can eat and occasionally enjoy a drink. He refuses to become a robber knight. It is against everything he holds high. He is also very peculiar about the offered contracts. Making sure they are honourable to a point… after all… one does have to make a living.

The Harrington Chargers:
Motto: “Death before Defeat!”
Veteran Cavalry Unit (20 men and horses)
Power: 10
Automatic (0) Discipline
Agility 3, Animal Handling 4, Fighting 5
Cavalry units use the Athletics and Endurance of their mounts in place of their own.

His cadre is known as “The Harrington Chargers”. The way they make their living nowadays. The unit of 20 loyal men consists of battle hardened veterans who have been in many a battle and skirmish.

Former Harrington Castle
What once was, is no more. Although it is perfectly possible to rebuild the castle. It would first of all require a lot of funds and second of all… the regaining of his ancestral/family lands. Both goals which are not easily to attain.

Harrington heraldy
House Harrington Coat of Arms

“Death before Defeat” is the motto of House Harrington. During the last war this motto has been proven. Ser Henry’s whole family was killed, for they refused to surrender to their attackers.
During and in the aftermath of the assault following family members were killed:
Lord Thomas Harrington – Father
Ser Liam Harrington – Younger brother
Siobhan Harrington – Older sister
Hannah Harrington – Younger sister

And various uncles, aunts, nieces and nephews. The family line has been nearly wiped out which caused quite a scandal. Rumours have it that a neighbouring Lord had hired a robber baron and his retinue to raze the castle to the ground and the family with it.

One day Ser Henry will avenge his family.
But in the meantime he will try to find out if any on his family members have survived.
The corpse of his youngest sister, Teagan Harrington (age: 12) was never found. Which to Henry is something he clings too. He has spent most of his spare money to try and track her down. If she is still alive, he hopes to find her one day.
