Why am I a knight? It's trust. I came to Heart's court not as a veteran, not as a hero, but as a child trying to earn my father's name. My name could have had me placed as a page, or a courtier, or anywhere else the useless noble born are kept. Instead, I'm the Ambassador of the knights. I negotiate for them and for the kingdom. I am trusted to make peace, make friendships, and make our kingdom as happy as it can be. Because Heart trusted me to be the compassion and love that comes hand in hand with being a true protector. I hope every day to live up to that trust.

, thank you for the Knights project. It got me writing again. Thank you for your stories, and artwork, which keep me smiling, and remind me of the heart and love that goes into our passions.
