Baron Odo d'Outremer & Suliman the Saracen were a famed pair of heroes, hailing from the lands of Bretonnia and Araby respectively.

History

Baron Odo was one of many Bretonnian Knights who set out for the wars in Araby against the evil Sultan Jaffar. He took part in the routing of Jaffar's army in Estalia and joined in the great pursuit to the sea. When the Bretonnian knights ultimately followed Jaffar into his own parched desert lands, Odo was there. No matter how hot the sun, and despising both thirst and flies, Odo relentlessly sought out champions of Araby to challenge and slay. Though they hid in their isolated oases, Odo tracked them down and forced them to do battle under the merciless sun.[1a]

Odo was chivalrous as he was determined, and he honoured courage and bravery in a foe. When he met and defeated Suliman, he was so impressed by the saracen's courage that he spared his life. The two warriors became firm friends, especially since Suliman, a man of honour, had no love or respect for the despot Jaffar. When Odo returned from Araby he brought Suliman with him as his faithful brother in arms.[1a]

Suliman became renowned as a deadly, exotic warrior. Armed with a massive double-handed Scimitar and riding upon a swift Arabyan stallion, he could unleash a blood-curdling war cry, unique to the tribe of Araby from which he came. This war cry was capable of shaking men to their core, allowing Suliman to strike them down in response.[1a]

Wargear

  • Morning Star of Fracasse: Wielded by Odo, this mighty weapon consists of a spiked orb on a chain which is swung around with one hand. It has a will of its own as well as an enduring distrust of magic inherited from its first owner, Fracasse Langoustine, the Scourge of Araby.[1a]
