Coren Dirge, an elite veteran among the Paladins in my story. He's still a front line troop despite being over 60 years old. He was mainly created to help balance out the two primary factions in my story, though hes proven to be very usefull in helping to move the story along. ^_^ Coren is one of 5 Paladin Duelist who train up the younger generations. They serve as powerful front line commanders during their operations. I had the idea that any one who could defeat the top 5 duelist could be eligable to become an Elite among all Paladins and get to wear the honorable wing guard. The elite are Paladins whome are utterly feared by the forces of the undead... they will press forth were all others would retreat. The 5 duelest are first Joseph Cross, 2nd Coren Dirge, 3rd Camelia Seigmund, 4th King Leoric, and the fifth? Well im keeping that one a secret for now. ^_~ I had a sense that fighting the duelist might be a little like watching Dragon Ball Z... werein each round would bring forth a new devestatingly powerful opponant of such overwhelming strength that it would seem nigh impossible for the hero to win, especially after just barely surviving the previous opponant.
