PostSubject: [RP] The eyes of a hero   Wed Feb 04, 2009 10:08 am


After the trainning Oduan and Acc3p7 had a light dinner. While Acc3p7 was relaxing in front of the fireplace he heard Oduan calling him. Acc3p7 descended to the basement where he saw his brother extending what seemed an enormous cloth more than 3 meters long and also 3 meters wide. When he approximated he realized it was in fact a canvas. The mysterious package that arrived during the morning.




Do you recognize it? Oduan said to his brother It was a long time until we saw this painting for the las time hanging at Steenbergen's walls. It's called the spears and was painted by a compatriote of us called Velazquez. I see that you start to remember. he smiled See the city of Bred surrounded and defeated by the troops of the Spanish King Philip the IIIrd? See the dutch rebel leader Nasau surrendering the city keys to Don Amadeo of Spinola ,the great general our father told us about? Observe how the victorious general dosen't allow the defeated enemy to kneel and humiliate, observe how he tells him that sentence "No os arrodilleis pues en Flandes aún luce el Sol"* which sumarized the grandeur of that Sun of Europe that is Spain? This is a lesson we can learn from this painting, the glory of the victorious is meassured by the treatment he gives to the one he defeats.
But tell me, do you recogniceanyone else on this painting?


Oduan took one step back in order to let his brother contemplate the painting

[*Please don't postrate, the Sun is still shining on Flandes]

Acc gave a couple of steps back to watch the picture better and saw a figure that was well known, this magnitude indistinguishable from the family Altuna.

- Hahaha, of course I do! the slender figure is the profile of our father. -exclaimed proud the youngest- was able to lead the charge in the final gap Breda. Those flamingos had to surrend after the grand lesson of artillery our father gave them. Hahaha.

After admiring the table to for a while just got to laugh.

- Don´t you see something strange? Hahaha that horse its like a pig hahaha. -laughed Acc- hey brother, we still have the armor of our father? I'd like to try

Oduan smiled, even considering that his borther lost his father when they were both very young he has not forgoten his face. He looked onto that man who showed a quite braveness, the elegant moustache and the rebel hair his brother and him inherited, his profile talked about a wise genral, a leader fo his men, an example for his family. The Duke was there, at the history's most noble surrender, as a living prove of the honour of a cast of valiant warriors, wise dipplomats and skillfull generals.

Yes his old armor, the one that he weared in Slaak, Breda and WhiteMoutnain has to be still somewhere. Let's search it!

After a quick look behind the scene saw what it was all messy. The servants had exploited his absence for not doing their homework, all packages brought from his former residence were crowded on every corner which joined with the comings and goings of new furniture made the place a chaotic site. Shouting to a servant who was dropping some stuff to the basement asked her if she had seen somewhere the armor that his father once led. She responded affirmatively, saying to the Marquis that she had left it in a cupboard on the upper deck.

- I do not want to climb there, down the armor to the hall immediately and put a mirror in which I can look myself.

Without thinking twice the young girl went upstairs and asked for help a couple of servants who were there.

- Brother, we must raise this table to the hall is a real pity keeping it here full of crap. Now let´s see if the armor can still be used.

Come with me to the livign room, we will see if this old armor still serves.

Oduan opened the box and there, lying among the hay, was the armor. That old armor had almost certain kind of individual personality, every mark, every bruise on it told a stroy of a man's life of battles and combats. Oduan took the breast plate and helped his brother to collocate it. As he tied the belts he told to his brother:

See this hole just a few inches over the belly? It was made by a musket bullet on the Slaak battle. Yes, Acc3p7 the battle were our father gave his life. It was a dark night on Flandes when the stupidity of some spanish admirals comanded a suicidal attack throught the mist into the uncharted Dutch canals. It resulted in a massacre, the troops took land in positions they did not expected and found themselves rounded by the rebel troops. Our father has advised the admirals against suhc a futile operation but he was not listened, in fact some called him a coward, a traitor. Our father a traitor! The sole idea of it is an enormous stupidity. How could he be a coward when in the middle of the night he abandonated the security of the Steenbergen fortress in order to comand his man into the darkness in order to save the remains of the spanish fleet? How could he be a traitor when he gave his life in that dreadful battle? When despite of the superiority of the enemy he did not flee in panic but covered the defeated army retreat? Oduan felt that his blood inflamated for a moment Traidores eran aquellos perros quienes por aparentar gallardia llevaron a tantos valientes a una fria muerte insepulta en algún perdido canal!* he took a deep breath and relaxated This armor seems to fit you pretty well will the helmet also recognice you as a born soldier?

[ *Traitors where those who, trying to pretend braveness, caused so many good men to die without sepulture in some cold and forgoten canal ]

The servant gave him the helmet with the head low wich Acc took carefuly so it wont fell. Putting it on the head perfectly got a smell that reminded his childhood when he was at his father's shoulders.

- I can notice the small crack that he received during one of his famous skirmishes to capture flamencos. I remember especially one in which after a battle in which they were ambushed by a group of 50 men was able to exterminate them all and captured the lieutenant who led them gain valuable information. Ains ... many memories of our mother brings this suit, all the stories that told us about our missed father at the heat of the fire.

With a quick movement he asked the servant to bring the following clothing

While his borther was adjusting the leg plates of hte armor Oduan saw the scar on his brother's right thigh. The scar was almost ten centimeters long and was a souvenir from the time they served as drummers in the Tercios back in the Thirty years war. During a long year when he was 17 and his brother 16 they managed to escape form their mother's home in Essex and joined the spanish forces fighting agains the Swedish armys that defied the power of the Empire. For a moment Oduan pulse faded as he rememberd Jankau.

¿Do you....? ¿Do you remeber Jankau, broher? I still suffer from memories that appear as nightmares in the darkest nights. The death of all the Bavarian cavalary regiment, the sound of agonizing man, our eyes burning among the smoke from muskets.... That 24th of february is a day I will never forget, four years have passed and it seems like it hapepned just one week ago. When the sweedish army charged we were stranded from the rest of our company surrounded by enemies. But father will be proud of us, we did not surrender but battle, retreating step by step and chargin those Sweedish dogs a pint of blood for every inch of terrain.

Oduan looked again at the scar

When that fallen enemy soldier hurted you with his final breath I really feared that that was a fatal wound. But you just stand up, premed your jaws and send that dog to hell with your knife. Not a tear, not a word of complain emerged from your lips, you proved to be quite a brave soldier that day brother.

Hehehe - said proudly - and how did i enjoy carving that pig by the throat and watching blood coming out from the neck. Swedish artillery rats wich we exceeded 3 to 1 ratio... if it had not been available all those demons would have perished, every one of them eould have been served as food for pigs. They dont reserve any other final.

Telling the reared

- Give me inmediatly the gauntlets and stop paying to our conversation! -said to the servant while he slapped him.


While Acc was putting the gloves it came back the memory of war, the smell of gunpowder, of dirt and death of the battlefield, those voices hollow wounded one step away from death, the adrenaline in the body, remove the stick and draw the sword automatically as automaton...

- How I miss those days... the bad, the suffering and the camaraderie of being with the soldiers crude thieves, bad and dangerous rapists, horse thieves, honest parents who had no future in their land, veterans with their stories, rookies with their fears... Do not miss anything about that? Do not miss Federica? -said winking his right eye.

Oduan frowed

That was a long time ago, errors from our past are to haunt us for all our lives but we have to leave them away. So... seems that the armor fits you perfectly you got the same complexion that father had.

- Hahaha, so you remember her hahaha, well lets change of subjet.

After a long look in the mirror a big overwhelming thought crossed his head, as a heavy burden wich had always tried to avoid and which now became stronger than ever, was the time when the full weight of his title started to be clear, these days in London were beginning to awaken him duties, ones that he had never imagined. He turned to look in the mirror and swollen his chest swelled. Gallant and proud of wearing the clothes of his father.

- Our name means great responsibilities and obligations we have to be strong and face them with courage. We need to clear the name of our father and to avenge all those who slandered him. Now I have to meditate.

He took off the armor and ordered the servant to make some arrangements and and place it next to the fireplace. He left the room and went to his bedroom to meditate.
