Count Sir Glen, of Mordengaard of the Kingdom of the Wetlands.
"We built our castles out of real stone, by hand. Then we conquered them."
(Glen in black, conspiring with Grendel.)
AKA Mallet of Providence, though originally known by the persona name of "Aesius".
From Glen in his own words about his origins; "This was in '81 or '82, before there was any such thing as Amtgard. The Matthews' father taught at Berkeley before moving to Spokane, so I can only guess that it was some variant of SCA. I was thrilled to be able to hit people with a "real" flail and shoot them with "real" arrows, albeit padded ones, but I really didn't care about anything more than hitting people.
It was fun, rampaging through the Rose Garden and through the old stone walls and towers that used to be due west of the Rose Garden. You can still see the remains of a small stone fort we laboriously constructed around a tree above the Japanese Garden parking lot using stones from the tumbled down wall. We were tougher in those days; we built our castles out of real stone, by hand. Then we conquered them."
He has held a number of terms in assorted offices, ranging from Shire Regent to Ducal Champion to Kingdom Prime Minister. Glen spent a number of years in Neverwinter, several years in a freehold, two years in the Rising Winds, and now calls the Wetlands home. He travels a great deal and has fought in every kingdom in Amtgard except GP, because no one even knows where Golden Plains really is.
Glen is a lefty, and runs the blog Lefty Combat. Fighting is his primary interest in Amtgard, and he is always willing to give (and receive) pointers or talk shop with other fighters. He is an avid supporter of role-play in Amtgard, despite not always having had the best results with it. The best way to get on Glen's good side is to make him a tunic.
When Termus proved too virile to continue fighting in tournaments and Jinken proved too mighty to be contained by his mortal form, Glen took over winning the Wetlands' tournaments. It is somewhat suspicious that when the warlords got together to decide who got stuck taking over the job of winning tournaments, all three of the Rogue warlords voted for the one non-Rogue warlord.
Glen is a member of the Asura.
