The sails that are flown on this ship are varying shades of green, with no exact sigil or crest on it. It is heavily decorative, meant for the more lesser-noble/higher commoner standards. On the sides of the ship is written ‘Green Tulip’ in Sanktist Script, in a gold coloring (a yellow paint). The ship is kept in pristine condition, and cleaned often. The wood to make this ship was made of a large and strong Royal Oak tree from Ithania, and enhanced in strength by Corpse Weed Controids, often. In conclusion, if a Royal or Imperial ship was 10, and a rowboat was 1, this ship is a 6/10. Body Shape 20+7+5 = 32 Body Points.

(See's the Spirit as a collection if thoughts, knowledge, etc rather than a 'godly' thing). Childhood: 253 AC - 263 AC Gale was born in Ithania to Noel de Pierre, a half-Ithanian half-Alt Regalian man, and to Marie de Pierre, a full-blooded Ithanian in 253 AC, in a small port town west of Joyau-vert du Nord. His mother was a skillful tailor and cook, while his father was an ex-Admiral and Captain of the Ithanian Navy, now a mere fisherman. As a child, Galejin did what most children do and took up the hobbies of their parental figures, so he began to sew Ithanian silks to make simple scarves and help his father sail his small boat. However, he didn’t wish to take up their careers of sewing and fishing- he wanted something more. In 269 AC he persuaded his father, Noel, to let him enlist in the Bloodcast Knight Order. In return, Gale promised to come home and take up the ‘art’ of sailing. He began taking jobs around the town, trimming leaves, selling silks, and the like in order to earn coin. He did this until he turned 10 years of age. Adolescence: 263 AC - 277 AC At age ten, Gale went with his father to the Paysec Desert to camp for a month. In this time, he relied on his father to gather the food for him- as Gale was no hunter. In their free time, they would venture into the desert (about half a mile) and mess around with the sand. He built up stamina here as he played daily. After this month he returned home. The following month Gale kept the same ‘ideology,’ of physical fitness/play. He played in the woods near the village. One day in the woods, he met a girl named Marmee. The two played ‘fantasy’ games together, where they were sorcerers hunting ‘demons’ and the like (imaginary entirely). One day, an Arcanist moved into their town (264 AC) and offered to teach the two a magic spell. Galejin and Marmee agreed, and set to work. For the next year, the two practiced hard to learn the spell ‘Healing Grace.’ The teacher of this school also left an impact in his Religion- as they were a strong Unionist. Gale took up the faith by the time the year ended. Gale, now 12 years in age (265 AC) took up a new hobby- two years until he could try and join Bloodcast. He began sailing with his father, and he was tutored minorly on sailing and Captainry. This sparked an interest in him- this is where his maritime tactics (Captain) interests originated from. In 267 AC Gale’s interest was shown, and a Bloodcast brought him to a keep for the ‘evaluation.’ He joined the Order, and began his training for the next ten years. During this time, whenever he had free time, he read books on Captains of the past and how ships work- his goal in life was to be a Knight at Sea.... at least that's what it was as a child. Young Adulthood: 277 AC - 290 AC In 277 AC Gale graduated from the order as a men-at-arms, and proceeded to move onwards still. To further his education in combat, he joined the southern-Ithanian school of Mariposa. He remained in this school for a short time of two years, and left afterwards due to him using heavier weapons (longswords) rather than thinner/lighter ones (rapiers). Despite it not being for much- he learned footwork that he would adapt into his own fighting style later on in life. After leaving Mariposa in 279 AC, Gale moved to the Regalian Archipelago, specifically Genevaud where he planned to join the Regalian Military. Before he did, he went to the School of Tenpenny for a year, as most good Regalian soldiers do. While attending this school in Genevaud, he was oddly enough taught by someone of Kintyr origin, where he learned the Picron tongue. Also in his years in Genevuad he learned how to speak and understand the local dialect, but never how to read or write it. In his time here, he learned to hate mages. He despised them- although he hid it behind a small smile. He thought they had powers they didn't deserve. In 280 AC Gale officially joined the Regalian Military- the Navy. He was a sailor there, learning how to run a ship and taking notes of how to captain it himself. In his free time he read books on Captainry still- wanting to progress that far some day. In this year- Gale met his future wife, Aceline. One day, the Captain of the ship had to bring his daughter aboard, to teach them the ways of sailing despite them not being interested. Gale fell in love with her stubborn attitude- and her willful personality. The two hit it off, and drank on weekends together at local bars. Gale left the Military legally after news of Aceline getting pregnant. In December of 280 AC, twins were born with the names of Terrance de Pierre, and Isabelle de Pierre. Around this time, an idea came to Gale- the idea of a Unionist Navy. His goal changed to this, and after wedding Aceline he departed to work for coin. His mentality was with enough coins they could purchase ships- although it never happened. Aceline moved to Ithania where she lived with the de Pierre family’s household. Gale visited home monthly to visit his family, and took a liking to his nieces/nephews with an interest in combat over the ones with tailory. His life continued like this until 290 AC. Older Adulthood: 290 AC - 207 AC In 290 AC, Gale was informed of his father's death. He has passed due to health problems back in Ithania, and left half of his inheritance to Gale, and half to Gale's sister Claire. While she inherited the Household, he Inherited his father's ship- and the crew and weapons that went along with it. The ship was a decent ship, but was unused for the previous ten years. It was sent to Gale’s home in Ithania, where his wife began fixing it up. Gale moved to Axenford, where he became a legal mercenary. He worked there, sending the majority of his funds to his home to support his family. Around this time, a gift came for Galejin in 292 AC, from his wife Aceline. She had had a Sanktist forger make him a Pattara longsword, and engrave it with rose-like designs and Sanktist Script (Blaith). He made this his primary weapon. Gale continued his mercenary work, and continued studies on Captains and sailors. This made up the majority of his time in 293, 294, and 295 AC. In 296 AC, Gale went on a trip to Ellador. It was only for a month, but in that time he gained a respect for dwarves. In that time he spent hiking with dwarves, through the mountains. It was a “nature” based trip, for himself. After his trip, he returned to Ithania, where he helped the House de Pierre clothing line progress, acting as a merchant of the goods himself for a while. He remained in Ithania until 297 AC. In 298 AC, Gale joined the Ithanian Navy, where he acted as the captain of his newly refurbished ship the Green Tulip. He remained here, taking mental- and even notes on paper of how other 'makeshift' captains worked, and how 'proper' Ithanian Captains did their job. He eventually tutored under one, and the Captain was impressed on his knowledge- due to his vast research. In his free time he went whoring and drinking, every weekend- as sailors do. He continued life like this until 303 AC. In 304 AC, Galejin informed his wife had passed- from what they think of a heart attack. He was in depression for a long time, but as a gift someone sent him a kitten, of which he kept as a pet. However, it was later discovered as it grew it was a Daendroc Black Pathor. Despite it being a large cat he kept it and raised it, taking tips from other pet owners in the area. He named it ‘Noir.’ In 305 AC Gale moved back to Axenford, having recovered mentally from his wifes death, to continue his life from his family afar. He worked daily, a part of the Regalian Navy for 2 years. While he was on trips, his son Terrance took care of Noir, and the house in Axenford. His son was militant just like himself, and a tenpenny graduate. Galejin and his pet moved to Regalia in late december, 307 AC. Modern: 308 AC: In 308 AC Galejin lives in Regalia, modern time. Spoiler: Modern Events Clicker Crisis: Galejin arrived in Regalia around midway through the Clicker Crisis. He reunited with his family, Palina, Yvonne, and such. They lived relatively decent despite the Crisis, until one day they traveled to the Nook and Cranny Inn, and three Clickers attacked a large crowd. They were separated, though Galejin did what he could before the Clicker climbed the nearest building, and a few winged figures chased after it. He encountered a few more Clickers from a distance, but none up close until the Battle of Typhonusberg. At the battle, Galejin, Dameon Slumberwood, an Allar and a few others took up the left wall defense of the estate. However, five clickers soon attacked from that wall. The Allar got their arms ripped off in the battle. The battle raged, Galejin managed to barely slay one and save a Typhonus from falling before they were forced to retreat. Weakened, Galejin made his way towards refuge- only to see a Mercenary fall. He attempted to help the man, but a Clicker appeared in front of him. To weak to fight any longer, he retreated. He doesn't remember when, but during this battle, his own sword recoiled and slashed his eye badly. Left untreated, it lost it's sight and he had it removed later on. The battle raged on, more and more Clickers surrounded the Estate until it was nearly inescapable, before the Clickers suddenly vanished. Their corruption left as well, but the damage they dealt wasn't gone. This concludes Galejins small experience in the Clicker Crisis. Marienritter (308 AC) Sewer Raids: Tyreal od Albion, the Hochmesiter. Galejin looked up to the man, someone who stuck to his guts, and often acted insane. 'Ave.' It apparently was a war-cry, a hello, a goodbye, and so on so on. When the raids began, Galejin took up the alias of the 'Green Eyed Man,' and fought in the sewers alongside the Zealots with his Pattara sword. They fought off monsters, beasts, and the such. The first raid itself was a failiure, as somehow the 'enemy' was prepared and had a large number in wait in the Wraith. The later attacks worked, mostly, the enemy beaten harshly before the retreat of the Marienritters. Another time of note, was when one flung his flail at Galejin, and he used his Pattara sword as if a bat to reflect it, and it hit a woman behind the attacker. All in all, this was pretty much Galejins experience as an Illegal Marienritter Raider. Ceardia Treason Charge: Isidoro Playero, House Playero, House Kreiburg. Alaric Keen introduced Galejin to most of them, be it through the time they met at the Mercenary Keep or the Stronghold. Their connection eventually led them to a voyage, one to help repair the void tainted Ceardia, specifically in the non-tainted part where a few thousand Regalians still lived. Galejin captained the ship over there, before something unexpected happened; he heard word from the ship he waited on that the forced that traveled with him tried to annex Ceardia in the name of House Kreiburg. As a result, violence ensued. A bounty, or rather warrant, was placed on all involved but William Arnyn. They were all apprehended and brought to Krakenburg. He tried to flirt with Hannah Lexen in this time- but- she ignored him. In the time there, it was terrifying- Galejin passed the time through bad humor. The place wasn't clean, nor cozy. He was luckily Pardoned by the Lord Chancellor. This concluded his experience in this Treason Charge. One of Viduggla's Captains: It began in something known as the Viduggla/Kreiburg Conflict. Galejin took part with patrolling around Usteyeurt, Vlavosko, and Tuva, with three warships under his command and a few other Captains. Their goal was to keep an eye out for reinforcements, and prevent the escape of the land troops that were under Kreiburgs command. However, the token blockade didn't last long; 5 Kreiburg Ships, 5 Black Ships, 3 Piergarten Ships, 2 Sorenvik Ships, and a ship captained by Athalon Elfessi would attack the blockade. Despite the attack having no Admiral backing it, the sheer numbers overwhelmed us, as the first ship sank the other two were forced to retreat so it wasn't a full out "massacre". Just as all seemed lost, Latimer joined on in. 11 Latimer Ships, 2 Ariramoral Ships, Zzolesi Ssalerzyra's personal ship, Anne-Claires ship, and a Viduggla ship attacked the 'Sorenvik/Kreiburg' blockade, with Abelhard Latimer leading it, with advise from myself. Two Piergarten ships sank, as well as one Kreiburg ship. The enemy retreated at the battle they clearly couldn't win. Galejin backed out of the conflict soon after, as Viduggla was winning the Naval front now. This concludes his experience in this conflict. Voyage to Farah'deen.
