When Mathilde was a girl, she watch the Knights with fascination. She memorised every story, every tale, all in the hopes that one day she could join them. But as she grew older, the sad truth about attitudes towards women was clear - Knights were male. Despite the gender barriers, Mathilde harboured her hopes, knowing somehow she would succeed.
And then the forces of Chaos invaded the Empire. When the King called for an Errantry War, she slipped out of her home, stole her father's armour and joined the host and took up the name "Redemund", proving she was as capable of a warrior as any other Bretonnian. She has since returned, but knows she can’t return home because of her theft. So she’s resolved to fight against the hated Greenskins and anyone or anything else that threatens her land.
