Sebastian Du Lac
Don Sebastian Du Lac, Bastard of Crimson Moon, Wetlands, Patron Saint of Damn Tasty Gumbo
- ”Why do I feel like I just got voluntold to cook a gumbo?” - Sebastian
- "Never underestimate the entertainment value of the mentally ill-equipped." - Sebastian
- "I can always appreciate that, next to Bas, I'm a saint...." - Sir Furball
Sebastian began playing Amtgard in October of 1999. Since then, he has seen and been an integral part of the chapter's history. He became the first Ducal Champion of Crimson Moon in 2001, and has retained numerous offices since then. The first Kingdom Officer of the Wetlands to hail from Crimson Moon, and the first member of Crimson Moon to recieve a ladder masterhood (Master Rose), Sebastian still hosts kingdom and park-level events, fighter practices, feasts, and continually strives to better his chapter and Kingdom in any way he can.
On December 12th, 2009, Sebastian became the first Native Son of Crimson Moon to be knighted by the Kingdom of the Wetlands. Even cooler is that he is, to date, the ONLY person knighted on Louisiana soil. His liege, Sir Luke, was joined by his long-time friends and mentors, Sir Feral and Sir Margul, in dropping the sword, Feral even cried.
Knighted into the Order of the Serpent in 2013. Sirs Feral and LadyHawk presided over what looked like a "wedding" ceremony in which Sebastian and his wife, Dame Samara du Lac were bestowed Serpent belts. In lieu of the traditional sword being used to knight them, a wooden fork and spoon were used. This brought an interesting reaction from the crowd, as Samara was made to vow that she would not spoon with any other but Sebastian, and likewise, Sebastian was made to vow that he would never fork another but Samara. I think Sebastian got the raw end of THAT deal, as was noted by most of the onlookers...
RETIRED IN 2018. Reasons unknown.
A rather Newbie-ish member of CM wrote a poem about Sebastian for WL DragonMaster at the September Mid-Reign in 2014. Here is his work:
The Tale of the Infamous Bas By: Fenris Blackfang
I once knew a man that was truly old But his tale is still told Over the years his head has gained mass This is a tale of the infamous Bas
This man he is shorter than me And over a counter he cannot see He jumps up to reach, but it is so sad He's still shorter than the shortest lad
All of you newbies had better watch out Mean ol bas likes to see you pout A better knight has never been known When he takes the field we all groan
In the year 1999 His wavier he did sign And ever since that day We have all been in dismay
He even has a third mask How did he accomplish this task by roleplaying a door Without falling on the floor
When there are no newbies left to slay And he calls it quits for the day He lies down on his back And enjoys his single barrel jack
Bas because you are number 8 You are the subject of hate But bas please don’t be mad You are the best knight cm has ever had
Awww... he's so fucking sweet, isn't he?
Sebastian was Squired to Sir Luke Wyngarde, who is the fount of his beltline.
