The begining of the Story

His tall muscular frame moved without sound through the wood as he traveled, leading his stallion, packed with all that he owned on it's back. The hood of his cloak off his head so that he may hear all and know danger before it came to him.
He is Sean, of the clan McClure, of the house of Stewert royal guard, now a hunted man and he with no wish to end his days in an English prison as his queen has been.
He has been told of a place he may find asylum, a place called Wind Storm Castle and it is here that he journies.
He has come far in the last week and know he is within a day or two of his journies end, when he happens upon a cottage in the wood. By all appearances it is desserted, but on the off chance it is not he takes refuge in the barn for the night. Over the course of the next two days he watches the house and the area, hopefully not seen. The rest is good for his mount and himself as they have been on the run for weeks without much rest. Here he is able to rest his steed, feed and water him and lighten his load for the first time since leaving at the queens behest. Not a soul dose come to the cottage for the two days he has watched, so he stores some of his things and keeps only what he will need to enter Wind Storm Castle. In his travels he has appeared to all as a fur trader, his skill as a huntsman and woodsman made it easy to seem what he is not. He is able to speak the rough language of the commoners and blends well into the countryside. Staying off the beaten paths and roads he is able to procure hides for trade and meat to eat. Though his resources are slight his skills are many and he has not wanted for much on his trek.
He has decided to make the final journey into Wind Storm Castle and seek out the princess he has been told would hear his plea, a Lady Edfeil. Through her he is to make an alliance with the kingdom for asylum. If this be successful he has decided he will return to the cottage in the wood and make it home, for he is a man without country and a knight without a crown to serve.
