From An Tir CulturewikiKnights in the history of An Tir, Duke Thorin holds the record for most reigns as King of An Tir with seven. He reigned 4 times with Duchess Angharad, once with Countess Sineidin, and twice with Countess Dagmaer.
He trained in the art of armored combat from Duke Paul of Bellatrix of the West and is active in the fighting community providing both training, inspiration, and an extreme challenge to the fighters of An Tir. He was Heavy Fighting Champion for the Barony of Glymm Mere so often that they made him a permanent champion for their group. He has trained numerous squires, including several who were elevated to the accolade. And most importantly, he's made a huge difference in the lives of those that he has taught, advised, or befriended.
He has been called "Duke One Shot" (or the "Roboduke") because of his fighting style. The style has the minimum of wasted motion combined with an extremely high ratio of attempted blow to attempted killing blows. In short, he rarely swings his sword if there isn't already a killing blow available. Because of his program of active stretching, staying in good condition and keeping his armor up to spec, and using only fighting motions that do not cause injuries in the long term, he has experienced very few broken bones or limiting injuries across a very long and illustrious fighting career.
After serving as the founding seneschal of the Protectorate of Thairis (now the Kingdom of Drachenwald) he as awarded the PCS (Protectorates Company of Sojourners, now called the Popular Company of Sojourners) on November 13, 1976 (AS XI).
He received his first Honor of the Silver Rose on September 4, 1977 (AS XII).
He won his first Crown Tournament on September 3, 1983 (AS XVIII) at September Crown Tournament in the Kingdom of An Tir.
