Name: Sebastien d'Argentan
Biography: Sylvain d'Argentan's elder brother by one year, Sebastien d'Argentan is a priest and scholar. When Sylvain devoted his early life to following his father and selling the family's apple brandy in the markets of Europe, Sebastien always knew that the distillery was no place for him - he found the people who engaged in the production, sale, and consumption of drink to be tedious and abrasive.
Instead, his true passion was learning about the world around him, and he entered into service to the Church to guarantee a life of studiousness before God.
After his brother left for England to make his fortune, Sebastien corresponded with his brothers in coastal abbeys so that he could hear the latest news from the new Kingdom as soon as it was heard. When word reached him that a "long-haired fool got himself taken in Lincoln", he knew instantly that he had to make the journey across the sea to find his brother...

Within a year they found themselves at Hastings, where the eldest among them, Robert, met his demise. After Roger was named baron of Oxfordshire for his heroic efforts that day, Gilbert, relieved at no longer having to live as a soldier, assumed the role of his brother's keeper, and now looks after his affairs, especially when Roger is away.

Joining arms with the Saxons to the north Kathar would find a new family with his "Brother" Edgar. the failure at Nottingham finally made him give up on taking any conviction: all rules would be broken for victory, and after the battle that would be the only code that he followed

Name: Adela de Falrey
Bio: The daughter of Turstin and Matilda de Bayeux, she has lived most of her life in England, now, and considers herself more English than French, but she's still a Norman. Turstin's manner around the hold in Rockingham has made her discriminate a difference between being Norman and French. Yes, she considers herself an Anglo-Norman child. But her days are being wasted in Rockingham, she feels. She wants to be out there in the wider world, doing things and having fun like her father, rather than sitting around and weaving all day. Lord... how she hates weaving...
As a mewling infant plucked from the wreckage of an unknown ship on the North Sea, Moses bore no memory of his parents. He was raised by the captain of a merchant ship who had rescued him and then given him the name of the biblical hero who had himself been plucked from the water. Cenweard - The Captain - took Moses as his own, as he was a chaste man and would not father children himself. Under his tutelage, Moses learnt the ways of ships and of business. Though he mastered these relatively quickly as he grew, he was rather slow in both thought and action and struggled to master speech, reading and writing. Occasionally he was teased for this by the equally illiterate yet quicker witted crew of his adopted father's ship.
Though a merchant by trade, Cenweard and his crew turned occasionally to smuggling with the arrival of the Normans in England. They smuggled both supplies and refugees north, away from Norman influences.
Now at the age of 14, Moses is growing into an able seaman. Though smaller than average for his age, his muscles are thick from regular exercise. Moses is not exactly greedy – his lust for gold or jewels barely surpassing that of the common man – yet he has a great passion for coins, attracted by the varying shapes, weights, and colours among them.

A path the chruch condems but his followers rejoice in the knowlage. He is Saxxon but does not care for either side in the war. His only goal is to spread his truth.. And to teach the people of the church lies
