Representative from the Paladins of the Frozen Flame
After only a few years, the [[Order of the Frozen Flame]] that had first started as only a hand full of knights had grown into a great Order of men. With Grand Paladin Jonny Bacardus nearing the later stages of his life, the order was in full bloom. People from all over flocked to the standard of the Frozen Flame, and the ranks of knights swelled to huge numbers. There was much room for advancement, especially for those who showed great prowess on the field. Such was the case for now High Paladin DeMarcus Elderidge. His family was part of a refugee convoy that had made their way to Paladin lands after their own had been attacked and razed by the vile [[Dragon Knights]]. Soon after, DeMarcus enlisted and made his way back to his home land. He was only ten, and was assigned to be the squire of one of the Commanders of the [[Paladin TruthSeekers]], the army that would be fighting the Dragon Legions head on. At the battle of Darsus, DeMarcus was able to show his worth, for as the Truth Seekers routed their enemies from the field, a group of thirty elite guards from the dragion kingdom converged on the hill the commanders had chosen as their vantage point. DeMarcus, who had learned to fight from an early age, picked up a sword and boldly rushed his enemies. Before they knew what had hit them, had had already slain two. He had always been big for age, but, the commanders, seeing a mere child slaying their enemies, they charged head long into the fray, completely obliterating the elite gaurds will to fight. The Commanders reckomeneded DeMarcus recieve the medal of Courage, the first of four he would win on his way to his place as High Paladin. In the years following that, he was taught by the best tacticians in the empire, learned to become proficient in the use of many weapons, and became an excellent orator and diplomat. At twenty seven, he is the youngest of the 15 High Paladins. He is Baron of the city of Stormgrad, and owns much land in the surrounding country side. He has a wife, and two sons and a daughter.
