"Beloved of Parravon. Whatever else might be said about him though, he's a damn good fighter."

The Beloved of Parravon's Heraldry- 2016-12-18 17-41

Laudethaire's pegasus heraldry.[2]

Laudethaire, Beloved of Parravon was a famous Pegasus Knight, whose impressive skill in battle was only matched by his arrogance and vanity.

History

"For the glory of Parravon, the Lady and the King!' bellowed Laudethaire, raising his lance high."
"For the glory of Laudethaire, more like...

The Beloved of Parravon prepares for his rescue mission.[1]

Laudethaire was known across Bretonnia for his skill in combat, good looks and an arrogance almost unmatched. Having become the Lord of the Joust at the Tournament of Lyonesse, he rode into battle upon a snow-white Pegasus, and wielded a gleaming, enchanted sword. He wore his fine tabard over a set of plate armour shined to an almost painful degree, and when he removed his helmet, his wavy blonde hair and winning smile were revealed. Women flocked to him and nobles respected him, much to the ire of Calard of Garamont and many other young knights.[1]

Nevertheless, the Beloved of Parravon would become a strenuous ally of both Calard and his brother Bertelis, aiding the duo in combat while also considering them to be beneath him.[1]

It was Laudethaire who discovered a noble lady of Bretonnia being held captive by Norscans. Alongside Calard and Bertelis, he led an attack into the heart of their encampment to rescue her. To the knights' shock, it was revealed that the woman was none other than Elisabet, the former fiance of Calard, and that her captor was none other than Egil Styrbjorn, one of the mightiest Chaos Lords in existence. Managing to cut their way out of the camp, Elisabet's rescue resulted in yet more fame for Laudethaire, adding to his already impressive list of feats and fuelling his sense of greatness. Elisabet, however, was pregnant with the Norscan's son, and Styrbjorn was leading an army to Bretonnia to retrieve him...[1]

During the resulting invasion of Lyonesse, Laudethaire led his Pegasus Knights into the thick of battle, killing many Norscan Warriors and Marauders, while infuriating Calard with his arrogance. It was only when he came against a massive Chaos Spawn that his streak was finally stopped. Laudethaire struck the abomination with his lance, causing the beast to grab his noble Pegasus and tear open its throat, sending its rider crashing into a tower below. Landing next to a Norscan warrior, Laudethaire wrestled with the man before they crashed through a window overlooking the brutal ocean below.[1]

Laudethaire managed to survive the fall. Hanging from a ledge by one hand, he spotted a peasant cowering above. This was Chlod, an acquaintance of Calard and a petty criminal. Ordering the peasant to help him, he was inches away from being rescued when he spat a boastful insult. Chlod lifted his foot, brought it down, and sent Laudethaire plummeting into the icy ocean below...[1]

Heraldry

Laudethaire bore the Heraldry of a rearing white Pegasus, imposed upon a field of red. His tabard was further decorated with edges of silver.[1]
