Resident "What ya got?" style fighter. (Variety is the spice of life.)
Prefers long-spear and javelin(s). Often rocks min-buckler and flail. Also enjoys reds, flailentine, and archery (and crossbows), but is often equipped to support his team, or using whatever weapons are remaining after arming newbies. Tends to travel with at least one piece of every type of equipment (and probably three spears) when he can get away with it.

Past: Grew up shooting guns, riding horses, and fighting with wooden swords. Older brother is a theater major with an emphasis on stage combat. In college, originally fought with an independent group called the Bushido Kai, sister group to the Ironlanders. Both groups were located in King County, WA.

After hearing about a group which fought in Redmond, investigated and discovered Gondor in 2003, missing the chance to meet Xooyan and Orion by a few short months. Fought with the realm through the end of the year before moving away to Florida in January of 2004.

In early 2008, Stripes and Roman mentioned a boffering group was fighting at Robinswood Park in Bellevue. Upon investigation the group turned out to be Gondor fighting in a new location and under new leadership. After deciding to stick around, started recruiting new members and helping to improve the realm to the best of his ability.

Current-ly attending school in Honolulu, HI , on the island of Oahu. Founded the realm of Manoa at the University of Hawaii (Manoa), located in the Manoa Valley, just north of Waikiki.

Current-ly back on the mainland, in Washington state. Resides in Cedar County (eastern King County); hour-ish drive from Seattle (but it's sorta a pain).

2009-2010: Manoa had a good first year. Several practices had fifteen fighters, with another ten non-fighters in attendance. Average practices numbers were a minimum of five fighters, with closer to ten being common by the end of the year. Given the shortage of equipment (because of difficulty obtaining materials), we were very pleased with these numbers, and look forward to further growth next year.

2010-2011: Good second year. Continued growth; less non-fighters in attendance, but consistantly in the double digits of fighters at practice. Held/attended several demo events, with good turn out/participation. Slowly working on garb, and folks have started building equipment (Walmart now sells the Ozark blue camp pads here in Hawaii).

We moved outdoors in Spr ('11), after outgrowing the studios available to us, getting fed up with the run around that Athletics put us through, and finally finding a suitable outdoor site. Great location for visibility; a lot of drive-by traffic, and located on the walking route to the dorms. Yopparai founded Windward this year. Archer and Sabrina are working on founding a Hilo (Big Island) group currently (summer 2011).

Events Attended:

Most of the Battle for the Rings
A bunch of Western Wars
A handful of Chaos Wars
A fistful of Chumpsgivings
A pair of T-Walds
At least one Oregon Opener and September Siege

Younger nerd days:

"For he today that sheds his blood with me, shall be my brother."

"A knight is sworn to valour. His heart knows only virtue. His blade defends the helpless. His might upholds the weak. His word speaks only truth. His wrath undoes the wicked."

"Do not kill. Do not rape. Do not steal. These are principles which every man of every faith can embrace."

"Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness."

(Slightly) More recently:

"Ohana means family. And family means you always share the food."

"Take what you can, give nothing back."

"Rule 1: Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind.
Rule 2: Those that fall behind, get left behind."

"Part of the ship, part of the crew."
